Not able to connect to the server, but I dunno where the problem lies, for all I know I botched up the mod install.
At any rate, it seems the authors are transitioning from one crafting scheme to another and none of the documentation I can find explains it very well. Everything mentions flint as being the base material that all crafting branches off, but the only materials I can find topside are 'rocks'. Turns out the flint tool is now gone and instead you create your tool heads in the same patterns as laid out in the scribing table recipies.
One day someone needs to design the interface so as you don't need to refer to a wiki to get the basics done right.
