I would like to search the crafting menu by ingredients.

It is quite frustrating to try and learn the build heirarchy in reverse. It is good to be able to search for a thing. It is also equally helpful to be able to search for the stuff a thing can be crafted into. And that regardless if you have the ingredients and/or technology for it, so you can plan better.

Also a similar previous suggestion, albeit only requesting the search to include recipe products : viewtopic.php?f=6&t=85218

I think that this issue is manageable in vanilla. When you play overhaul mods that add unreasonableinteresting levels of complexity, you can always add one of
  • FNEI
  • Blueprintbook
  • What is it really used for?
Or go all in and plan entire production chains with
  • Helmod
  • Factory Planner

Am i the only one that remembers that "Recipe explorer" was once a drafted feature? I thought it was also briefly described somewhere but i can't find anything.

Damnit, I did it again! I meant Recipebook and I wrote Blueprintbook.
