I'm playing skyfactory 3 with OpenComputers installed. I'm used to playing with computercraft where you could read information from blocks fron other mods and use them in your program (for example read rf/t output of a big reactors reactor). I'm trying to accomplish the same thing but with the OpnComputers mod (which is installed in skyblock 3 by default).

I'd like to setup the following:

  • on demand crafting with the Refined Storage mod (the crafting is already setup I just want to be able to trigger it from a computer)
  • See basic power consumption of an EnderIO compositor bank.
  • See amount of liquid inside a Tinkers' Construct Casting Basin
  • Check quantity of given item inside Refined Storage system.

I've no problem with writing the code to do this, however I don't know what blocks I need to interact with other mods or if it's even possible...

How would I go about doing this? again, I'm only looking for the hardware setup required (I already have setup a basic (tier 1) computer with screen, disk drive and keyboard)

  • What did you try so far? Does the computer just read NBT data? If yes, those tasks all seem pretty doable. Dec 21, 2017 at 11:22
  • I've tried to see if a computer can check this information directly but it doesn't seem to be working... I probably need another block for that...

  • What did you try so far? And how does the computer work then? Dec 21, 2017 at 16:03
  • I added an adapter to the blocks I want to interact with but I've not figured out how to use it yet
