It really does..Before you could arrive at your bank of crafting tables, Shift-click quantities in, and out, remove 1 so it has working space, then queue up hundreds of small stone so it'll just convert whatever it has. You could generate good quantities of it without a huge amount of effort. So, now it takes scrolling down a list to find small stone, then click 6 times to queue them, to get.. 30 small stone. Effectively the game is now beyond grindy if you want to build anything impressive in stone. Unless there's a magic crafting machine or rock grinder hiding in the research, or on the horizon, I am extremely unimpressed.
