Place a chest next to a machine (like a furnace or crystalarium), and the machine will pull raw items from the chest and push processed items into it. Connect multiple machines with a chest to create factories.

Compatible with Stardew Valley 1.2+ on Linux, Mac, and Windows. Requires SMAPI 1.10 or later.

  1. Install the latest version of SMAPI.
  2. Unzip the mod folder into Stardew Valley/Mods.
  3. Run the game using SMAPI.

Once installed, crafting machines adjacent to chests will push their output into the chests, and pull ingredients to process out of them. This can be used to automate...

You can combine multiple machines with chests. Each chest can be connected to a maximum of eight machines (one in each direction), or seven machines so you can reach the chest. For example, combine bee house + cask + keg with a chest to automatically produce iridium mead. See some other example factories.

Future development
Need more powerful automation? Transport pipesĀ in a future version might let you connect any chest/machine with other chest/machines (even if they're not close to each other) into arbitrarily large factories. Each pipe can be one-way or two-way, and can have conditions (e.g. only certain items, qualities, etc). For example: collect milk automatically, and if it's lower than gold quality push it through cheese presses and casks to create iridium cheese, then push it into the shipping bin automatically.

Tiny reminder: endorse the mod if you like it. It means more people will see it, and it makes the author happy. :)
