first of all, I'm a huge fan of IC² and I'm sad that I've discovered it that late.
Yet there's something bugging me. You know how there are several industrial machines out there (in real life) that just blow your mind and make processing stuff easy? Well in IC you have to get BuildCraft to do so but how about the following:
This is a little Macerator and it's great the way it is right now. But wouldn't it be great if I put an Iron Furnace adjacent to it and the Macerator would try to put its content into the Furnace by itself?
So, the setup could look like this:
[M] [IF] [M]
C of course beeing a chest.
So this way the Macerators would put their stuff into the Furnace (if it's the same material). And the Furnace would put its stuff into the Chest once it's finished.
Once again getting your own transportation system would be great. A conveyor belt could work like the pipes in BuildCraft, that's all.
Once again, getting away from BuildCraft a bit (Diamond Pipes), it would be great having a machine that has 1 input and 3 outputs (horizontal).
The input gets items and the machine would take the part of sorting the items for you and sending them on further conveyor belts or into chests.
Thank you for reading and with best regards,
