[0.16.16] Productivity modules, Nuclear fuel

Post by svmsung »

Hello, it's not possible to use Productivity modules for Nuclear fuel?
Nuclear fuel is an intermediate product so it should be possible?

Thanks for the report. Nuclear fuel is not an intermediate product: it's not used in any other recipe.

Additionally the tooltip just isn't true - it should read "productivity modules can't be used on this recipe" because it has nothing to do with what an intermediate product is and it's a simple whitelist that we decide :)
If you want to get ahold of me I'm almost always on Discord.

Came here looking for this answer.
What is mildly confusing though, is that the crafting tab that lists nuclear fuel is called "Intermediate Products"

If you admit yourself that it's a locale "bug" then why hasn't that been fixed :P?

Why is it not an intermediate product?

Productivity modules are allowed for coal, solid fuel, and rocket fuel. So why not for nuclear fuel?

It's inconsistent.
