Less crafting grid! Huge mod compatibility!

More immersive in-world crafting, such as making dough using placed bucket with water or sealing placed crocks using fat.

Craft using a placed liquid container

Craft items by right-clicking with a solid ingredient on a placed liquid container.

  • Vanilla:
    • Dough (same as in vanilla)
    • Mortar (8x) (1L of slaked lime + 1 sand)
    • Alcohol-soaked bandage (0.2L of aqua vitae + 1 clean bandage)
  • Expanded Foods:
    • Wet shelled soybeans (1L of water + 1 shelled soybeans)
  • Ancient Tools:
    • Dough (same as in vanilla)
  • More Crops:
    • Corn Dough (same as in vanilla)
    • Copper cable (1L of liquid rubber + 1 copper wire)
Craft using a tool on placed block

Craft items by right-clicking with a tool of certain type on the placed block.

  • Vanilla
    • Pineapple slices (12) (use a knife/sword on pineapple)
    • Pumpkin slices (4) (use a knife/sword on pumpkin)
Seal placed crocks

Seal placed crocks on the ground with appropriate items.

  • Wax placed cheese
  • Compatible with each of the following things from any mod:
    • Liquid container (except liquid containers from QPTECH)
    • Crock
    • Tool types

All known compatible mods which also makes the mod more visible in the search:

Known Issues
  • When fat can be placed the same way as crocks, then it cannot seal crocks placed as Quadrants on a block, but it can seal it when placed as a SingleCenter.
    Disable placeability of fat and beeswax in Place Every Item config as a temporary solution.
Configuration file
Configuration file is located in VintagestoryData/ModConfig, it is appeared after loading any world.

InteractionSoundsEnabled (bool): Sets whether to make sound on interaction or not
InteractionParticlesEnabled (bool): Sets whether to spawn particles on interaction or not

Thank you to the following people:

I would be very grateful if anyone contribute to the mod, I have big ambitions about improving and making crafting more immersive.

1.1.0 version will have a completely new way of adding behaviors to items/blocks, that way will have no mod conflicts and it will not require Make it Compatible anymore

If anyone is waiting for an update, I have no ideas of what new recipes to add. High priority is to find a way how to get rid of Make It Compatible completely. The best way would be to implement new recipe system, but I currently don't have enough experience to do that.

Love this concept. Metalworking is the best part of the game, grid should be minimal. Thanks.

Wanted to share this example of how to add a mechanical feature. From the game Apico by the great Aavak:
