Why doesn't my pulverizer pulverize ore gravel?

It seems only aluminum ore gravel is pulverizing, is this not supposed to happen? I want to automate my ore production...

Ex Nihilo (possibly only in Agrarian Skies) is a bit inconsistent with how the various ores are treated. If I recall correctly, Aluminum Ore Gravel is the one block that would not work in my smeltery (after a certain update). I would recommend automating ores by setting up a few smelteries, since lava is free* and you can process the broken aluminum, etc, directly without making it into ore gravels. Have you tried pulverizing Ore Dusts? Because I think those are certainly supposed to be oreDict equal to worldgen ores.

 

*Cobble is free, crucibles only need cobble and can easily be automated, so lava is free.

But... if you pulverize ore gravel you can get four to seven pieces to make the one below that which if you pulverize that you can get four to seven piece to make the one below that and with one ore gravel you can make into two ore dust.

Why would I just put the ore gravel into the smeltery without processing it like that first?

Oh, did they add that as a pulverizer recipe? Back when I had limited resources, that processing chain had to be done with an Ex Nihilo hammer.

I assumed I could use a pulverizer to do that... so you are saying it cannot be done?

I'm saying check NEI. If you want to automate it, and the pulverizer doesn't work, you could always set up some autonomous activators to do the job.

Autonomous activators with hammers? o.O

I briefly had this setup in my world: One Autonomous Activator with Ore Gravel and Ore Sand set to right-click, to place the blocks into the world. Another A.A. with hammers, set to left-click so it uses a hammer to mine the blocks. Vacuum Hopper to collect the drops. Not the prettiest system, but it does work. Just be sure the left-click A.A. isn't pointed toward anything you don't want mined, since it can reach a few blocks in front of it.

That sounds kinda meh... refilling the hammers would get annoying and I have a TON of ore gravel atm thanks to my mob grinder with witch water providing coal to power a furnace generator to power a different pulverizer pulverizing cobblestone into gravel and several sieves sieving that gravel because I wanted a ton of diamonds to waste on those necrotic bone health up things...

If you have excessive quantities and continue producing it, the gain by processing gravel to sand to dust isn't that big a deal in my opinion. Unless your definition of "a TON" is something like 3 stacks of each metal, in which case, carry on.

 

If you want heart canisters, they do come as a reward from certain quests. I think the yellow and green canisters might have to be equipped via the TCon inventory tab rather than right-clicking, fyi.

I've considered just dumping it all into my smeltery and not worrying about processing it... /:

lol did you see me trying to equip it with right clicking and is that why you specified that?
I figured it out eventually! :P
