Iron ore can't be smelted directly
The early game production chain used to be:
Saphirite Ore => Crushed Saphirite => Iron Ore => Iron Plates

But it looks like that's been changed. This is pretty significant for me, since I often play marathon games with 5x researach. With these settings, it takes about 2-3 hours to research Mechanical Refining for the Ore Sorter, after which point I would go for the molten casting stuff (requires steel).
I had a look at that save game and everything seems to be correct and as expected. One of the reasons why the ore to plate recipes were disabled is because they weren't actually an efficiency upgrade.

Directly smelting crushed ore:
100 crushed saphirite > 66.6 iron plate

Sorting then directly smelting ore (recipes now disabled):
100 crushed saphirite > 37.5 iron plate + 18.76 copper plate (56.26 total plates) + 25 slag

Sorting then metallurgy:
100 crushed saphirite > 50 iron plate + 25 copper plate (75 total) + 25 slag

... But since I can't use the Iron Ore it makes yet, and now have to research steel before getting ANY efficiency upgrades, that change to the iron ore will probably add another 5 or 6 hours of playtime, which is pretty disappointing.
Next version of Angel's, Blast Furnace, Induction Furnace, and Casting Machine will no longer require steel. So you will be able to get efficiency upgrades sooner!

narrowed down to an issue with APM nuclear fork mod. idk a fix though.
Thanks! That helped reproduce the issue. Will be fixed in the next version of Angel's.
