Would it be possible to add a button/checkbox to do a reverse-lookup ?
As in, the normal operation is to show recipe(s) to craft, say, a steel axe.
The reverse would be to show all recipes that use steel-ingots.
There is a mod for a craftingtable
that does about half of that,
e.g. you put in some wood, and it shows all the possible output-products.
Then you can choose one of those.
But that means, stuff can only show up when you already have all the needed materials.
