I wanted to upgrade my level 1 armor bench to level 2 (Outside the Blocks, Mac server) so I took out all my iron ingots from my chest. But…
My iron ingots aren’t…real? Oh, the irony ! XD
-Removing+replacing the bench
-Separting the iron ingots
-Dropping and picking up the iron ingots
-Using a different blockhead
-Leaving and reentering the server
-Leaving and relaunching the game
-Rebooting my phone
Nothing worked. The only way I could solve the problem was to create a new iron ingot from 3 ore and queue my blockhead to upgrade the bench while the ingot was being crafted.
I have absolutely no idea what caused this. All I know is that all my ingots were obtained from whacking a gold spade on unmined ore. Maybe the ingots… have a different ID somehow? (I noticed in 1.7, on my private mac server, I am unable to place certain regular dodo eggs in the same stack. They simply stay separated, and they still do. )
I was able to upgrade my easel and craft other benches with my other gold-spade-obtained ingots though. After upgrading the armor bench, I was also able to make iron armor with the same iron ingots.
