Are you struggling to find your first 200 units of copper nuggets to start mining? Or just have too many of those not-so-useful copper arrow heads in your storage vessels? Well, why just not smash them with any stone (stone will break) and smelt as a normal copper nugget?

P.S. Maybe I will add a recipe to smash them with hammer later, but now it's just important that you CAN smelt them...

Perhaps next version will be integrated in my TinyTweaks mod instead of being standalone. Not sure when, because Vintage Story isn't my primary modding game.

Thanx, OmegaHaxors, I will change this both to support hammer and to not check game version next time! And perhaps, more metallic items available from panning will be possible to smelt for something usefull.

Rocks may be either expensive or just a garbage depending on biome. The last world I played in had a spawn in a mountain biome with lots of boulders, stones was really abundant.

add this after the final } to add hammer support

"ingredientPattern": "H,A",
"ingredients": {
"H": { type: "item", code: "game:hammer-*", isTool: true, toolDurabilityCost: 1 },
"A": {"type": "item","code": "game:arrowhead-copper"}
"shapeless": true,"width": 1,"height": 2,
"output": {"type": "item","code": "game:metalbit-copper","quantity": 1}

It won't load on older versions since the JSON hard-codes the current version requirement.
You can fix this by deleting the dependancy tag.

For the rock recipe you should increase the stack size of the arrows and yeild of fragments to 20, it's kind of expensive on rocks at a 1:1 ratio.

Perhaps should work with (much) earlier versions too, but tested on 1.17.8 only.
