So i'm probably missing something fairly obvious, but I've been trying for a couple of days to create a block that simply converts one item into another. This bit I've achieved, but while trying to automate it with hoppers I keep having the items in the input slot being extracted by the hopper before the block can convert them. Is there a way that i can simply lock the extraction of the input slot, allowing for input only into slot 0 and extraction only from slot 1? I'd ideally like it to be compatible with other mods too, not just hoppers.
I've tried a number of solutions, but I'm a bit confused why it should be happening and why no one else seems to have a similar problem upon doing a google search?
Any help would be appreciated :)
