Re-Smeltables Light

Have you ever made too many tools?

Do you have a friend that makes all the ore into ingots, just because they can't find anything better to do?

Did you advance to the next game stage and now you have extra materials laying around gathering dust?

I know I have..
And thus, this mod was born! What does it do? Simple, it lets you put them metal things back in the crucible, if you have enough heat, it melts! And you get back what you "lost".

Ingots, Plates, Chain, Scales, Tool Heads.. So long It's not become a Tool or Armor you can smelt it right back to that good old molten metal! (Yes you can make alloys straight in the crucible from parts).

It should work with all game versions so far (v1.11.11 to Latest). I also made sure you only need it in the server mods, so no unnecessary client downloads, yay! (Server only does not mean you can't use it in single player, you can!).

Claim back what is rightfully yours! By trial of fire, Hahaha~


NOTE: Should work with all vanilla metals & is compatible with Mr1k3's "SuperFuel" mod. If you want metals or items from other mods to be added, just let me know and I'll see what I can do.

Quack, Thanks for you work.

It seems to work properly on 1.19.3 but I have noticed some minor problem.
I'm using VS_ModsUpdater to update the mod and it finds this update:

Re: installed version : 1.0.0 - last version : 1.0.1

- Re :
Changelog v1.0.1 :
* Requires GuiCompositeSettingsEx 1.1.0.
* No longer crashes in 1.18.
* Dialog width is now properly adjusted.

AFAIK there is no 1.0.1 yet. It could be a bug in VS_ModsUpdater but what makes me think there might be a problem in the mod is that while initially installing through the in-game console (/moddb install) the mod was seemingly installed properly but nothing was in the Mods directory afterwards and I had to download it and move it there manually which is exactly what happens after VS_ModsUpdater updates the mod (the old version is also removed and I have to reinstall it manually each time).

Appears to work in my multiplayer server 1.19.3

💬 Pervy_Sage, Jan 21st at 6:59 AM

Does this work with 1.19?

💬 SoupMaster, Jan 11th at 8:52 PM

Can you re-smelt unfinished work items? If so, does it provide the appropriate amount if the work item was from multiple ingots?

💬 MichaelJMAD, Dec 2nd 2023 at 4:26 AM

Would it be possible to add the ability? to do metallurgy with ingots in the crucible Eg 7 copper ingots and 3 tin ingots


💬 KA3NMNP, Oct 15th 2023 at 12:23 PM

Hello, I found a small bug, but this is a game bug, not a mod, because in my similar mod it's the same. When you smelt an alloy and place a part consisting of two ingots (a chain or plate) into a crucible, their capacity is halved.

💬 niky45, Aug 17th 2023 at 7:55 AM

hey, I just installed this (on 1.18.8) because I accidentally made a tin bronze pounder cap I didn't need, and it won't let me put it in either the crucible or the forge.

💬 MrTango, Jul 23rd 2023 at 10:14 AM

Is it possible to give a smelting recipe a stacked input requirment? ie. for the metal arrowehead make the smelt recipe require 6-9 input to make 1 output?

💬 Heebeejeebees, Nov 30th 2022 at 4:39 AM

Maybe, instead of having the arrowhead yield an ingot, make it so it works with zyrails' Break Down Tools to have a chisel give back a number of bits per arrowhead?

💬 TheNiteFox, Nov 5th 2022 at 1:15 AM

No worries, my brain can barely handle editing the json files, definitely cant code 😅 

Atleast you managed to make a pretty useful mod, there is a Break Down Tools mod. Sadly that just turns the tool back into nuggets, but it does fully give back what was spent on the tool. Though I rather melt things back down its just more satisfying for some reason haha xD

Anywho :)  

💬 CousaxAuthor, Nov 4th 2022 at 8:02 PM

About the arrow heads issue, yeah I knew from before publishing the mod, thank you for still reporting it though 😁, the darn arrow heads just would not lower their yield no matter what I did, thinking people who don't like to abuse bugs won't.

About the tools, yeah I thought about it too.. I was going to make all tools saw-able to remove the stick and get the head back, I just could not figure out how to properly separate new from damaged tools, so it never made it to the release.

If I ever get better at this thing they'll be added, but don't expect it any time soon 😅, sorry~

💬 TheNiteFox, Nov 4th 2022 at 3:01 AM

Kind of wish this added a way to break the heads off of already made tools, or to light already made tools on fire, because I have a habbit of always attaching a stick to a toolhead so I can hang it on a tool rack. Cool mod though. Definitely nice to have this option.

💬 ScrappyDukes, Oct 28th 2022 at 1:42 AM

I minor issue I've come across with arrowheads.  When smelting down arrowheads they convert at a ratio of 1 arrowhead to 100units of metal.  So one arrowhead converts to one ingot worth of metal, which can then be converted to 6-9 arrowheads.  Basically generates an endless cycle of infinite ingots.  Unsure what the proper ratio would be given there are 2 metal costs associated with arrowheads 1/6 ingot and 1/9 ingot respectively.

💬 CousaxAuthor, Sep 30th 2022 at 2:44 PM

Yanazake Sorry for the delay. I was testing all the arrow heads in the game, and indeed they all were smelted, casted and alloyed without problems 👍

💬 AzuliBluespots, Sep 29th 2022 at 9:38 PM

Does this work with arrowheads?? I found so many and very likely they won't ever be used!

💬 CousaxAuthor, Sep 26th 2022 at 4:16 AM

Thanks, knowing that the mod is actually being helpful makes it worth it 😁

And thank you very much for the heads up.

💬 Lohn, Sep 26th 2022 at 2:05 AM

Cousax Amazing, thanks for all your hard work! I accidentally wasted some gold, when I barely have any by clicking the wrong item; now I can fix that. I'll probably want to grab SuperFuel again, so I can smelt iron and steel down, too; since you made them work. :)

(also apparently doing @Lohn, with a comma made this all bold and didn't actually ping me, for future reference.)

💬 CousaxAuthor, Sep 26th 2022 at 12:21 AM

Lohn, It sure does! Ive made sure all metal materials can be re smelted down to their liquid metal form and be casted :D (I'm making a fuels mod to aid with this), I've also tested Mr1k3's "SuperFuel" mod along with this one and it works like a charm~

I've uploaded a few screenshots so this is more clear in the future, thanks for your question!

💬 Lohn, Sep 25th 2022 at 10:14 PM

Great mod. Also, Third!

Does this work with non-crucible metals like iron and steel? I know you can cause a crash when melting iron in crucible through modded means.

💬 ingax, Sep 25th 2022 at 4:51 PM

Great mod. Also, Second!

💬 GTextreme169, Sep 25th 2022 at 4:50 PM

Great mod. Also, First!
