Newb Crafting Station Question

Well, not really newb... I was a Master Architect then took a LONG break from the game and am back. I have crafting stations with resources in the hopper. How do I access the hopper other than when crafting? (I looked on the radial menu and did not see an option for the hopper.) I need to see what I still have and what I need to be madly mining/sampling, etc.

Thanks in advance from a silly feeling old MonCal. :oops:

Standing in front of the crafting station, open your inventory and hover the mouse over a crafting tool of the same type as the crafting station. Above the "examine" box will appear another box labled "open crafting station hopper". Click it.

Thanks for the quick response and the welcome back. I tried that and only got 4 options...

Start Crafting

Going to try making a new crafting tool and see if that makes a difference. I'll post a reply or edit after I do that.

EDIT: DOH! Hover over the Start Crafting option! Thanks again folks. :)

did you hover the mouse cursor over examine? Its not a 'normal' radial menu option, it appears above examine.

Yes it is a strange departure from the way you normally interface with objects in the game. Normally you use the tilda key to bring up the radial menu, and left click and hold to bring up any further options on the radial menu. Where here, hovering the mouse over the object brings up the radial menu and any further options. Then there is the fact that the options are on the crafting tool rather then the crafting station. Why, I have no idea?

Maybe cuz there is no options at the radial of a crafting station but the examine and the sneaky programmer didn't want to work late that Friday afternoon just to give us another single option on the station? 8)
