FORGE (AKA More Molds) is a valuable mod for Vintage Story, focusing on early game accessibility and reducing repetitive strain. It introduces various molds, including the Plate Mold and Knife Mold, allowing players to craft tools and resources with ease. Additionally, the mod features the Handsaw, providing limited durability and enabling the creation of boards and sticks. Perfect for those with limited dexterity, this mod enhances gameplay experience. As a work in progress, I welcome suggestions and plan to expand with molds for almost every smithable item, by VS 1.19 I hope to have every mold customizable through configuration settings.

I compared the section of the JSON I would have to remove from the JSON for the Raw mold to prevent this for the vanilla molds, and it is still in vanilla. So, for now I am making the decision to leave it in.... Unfortunately, I was not able to make Burned molds rotatable as well. Any suggestions doing this with json would be welcome.

Thank you to everyone who hung out on stream (Looking at you SpearAndFang, and the surprise drop-in from Macoto_hino). All of your support is amazing!

💬 Matiamo, 20 hours ago

This is working for me on 1.19.3 have yet to try 1.19.4 as waiting for a few mods that broke in my pack to update. Pamela

💬 Pamela, Feb 13th at 9:08 PM

Will this work in 1.19?  If not, will it be updated?

💬 Kiladin, Jan 29th at 1:22 PM

Your versioning is a bit wonky.  The latest file is tagged 1.4.2, which makes it appear to be older than the prior two releases, which were 1.4.11 and 1.4.12.  Mostly a pain for those of us messing about with any auto updating tool like EMTK, which was fooled by your versioning faux pas into thinking that the prior version was newer.  It also trips up the normal mod loader, which when faced with two copies of a mod, tries to load the newest one.  The update comment and zip file name, shows that you at least intended to tag it 1.4.20, but the modinfo.json file inside the zip has the version 1.4.2.

💬 Xandyr78, Jan 28th at 6:52 PM

I don't seem to be able to pour smelted metals into the nails & strips mold.   Anyone else experiencing this, or know why it might be?

💬 CKitt, Jan 22nd at 1:27 PM

I'd also love to see this updated to 1.19. Great mod!

💬 CrusadingPriest, Jan 20th at 11:53 PM

Hello. Just checking if this Mod will be updated to 1.19 Stable. Its one of the most used mods that we have on the server. 

💬 Aksyl, Jan 19th at 5:19 PM

Ailith In youtube vids where people use pucks instead of ingots, they're usually small enough to fit in one's crucible without breaking them apart first. So maybe they're more usable for smeltable metals?

💬 CrusadingPriest, Dec 28th 2023 at 9:36 AM

This mod is amazing. Its made a lot of work a little simlper. I can't wait till you add Iron smelting and chainmail molds. Thanks!!!

💬 Cardzy, Dec 25th 2023 at 1:30 AM

Sad to see it is missing a Scythe mold.  Great mod otherwise. 

💬 Ailith, Dec 23rd 2023 at 10:58 AM

still works 1.19-rc.1, l haven't quite figured out what workflow the pucks fit into but I'm sure they work for someone, love the mod.

💬 Maestro, Dec 20th 2023 at 2:54 AM

Thanks, ERGSunshine... it doesn't seem to work that way for me.  A standard saw over logs produces nothing.

💬 ERGSunshine, Dec 13th 2023 at 4:10 PM

Maestro the old recipe with the vanilla Saw (the one exclusive to smithing) still works, and is three times better. You still want to make that saw, but now you don't need an anvil to get boards.

💬 Maestro, Dec 7th 2023 at 4:04 AM

Do I understand this right? 

The only way to make boards with Yabba Forge installed is to cut them with a handsaw...

and the only way to make a handsaw is with a mold (forge doesn't work)...

so you can't make one out of iron until you have fuel that can burn at 1400-ish degrees? 

Is that correct?

💬 B0bb0, Dec 5th 2023 at 12:20 AM

I have had no issue with 1.19.pre-7

💬 iodide, Dec 3rd 2023 at 6:41 PM

Can anyone confirm if this works using v.1.19pre?

💬 ASILiara, Nov 26th 2023 at 10:18 PM

Something about the fact that it takes five pucks to make an ingot really bothers me. I'd really prefer it if pucks were 25 units worth each, so we could fill up a puck mold with 400 units instead of having such a weird amount. Of course, that's gonna be really fun to do, considering that you already have them at 20 units apiece...

💬 DrBubba, Nov 25th 2023 at 12:16 AM

I accidently made a sheet instead of a plate.  Is there currently a way to break up the plate into bits and re-cast it?

💬 Guimoute, Nov 7th 2023 at 6:09 PM

Hi, there is a tiny typo as of 1.4.2: arrowhead molds read x2 instead of x9.

💬 DragooKnight11, Oct 31st 2023 at 10:19 AM

Sheet mold feels a bit expensive at 2 ingots, considering a plate can be turned into two sheets with a little work.
Edit: I am dumb, right after I commented I remembered I was playing modded, then forgot to check, then just remembered to check, sheets don't seem to have a recipe normally, one of the mods is doing that.  Still having a config to tweak values would be nice, so I can quickly set the sheet mold to 100 units to fit in.

how do you smelt iron into its puck form?

💬 NukoSan, Sep 23rd 2023 at 1:48 AM

How's compatibility with XSkill?

💬 Andromeda517, Sep 5th 2023 at 2:54 PM

the chain link mold doesnt seem to work, its not letting me pour molten metal into it. if it helps, im using bismuth bronze.

💬 DUCATISLO, Sep 3rd 2023 at 5:20 PM

my hero!

💬 RikeiR, Aug 15th 2023 at 12:18 AM

Thanks for the nice mod.

I want the following molds,

  • Scythe Head
  • Shears
  • vanilla Saw Blade
💬 Guimoute, Jul 16th 2023 at 9:10 PM

Nice, I'll grab this mostly to be able to make my own metallic arrows! After many hours I'm finally tired of buying them from survival goods traders.

Edit after 2 weeks of use: this mod is an absolute banger. Iron age really sucks the fun out of the game. Casting things is so much more satisfying!

💬 Cuiwi, Jul 6th 2023 at 3:07 PM

Hello! Does this work with the 'Spear And Arrow Head Recycling' mod? That mod also adds the ability to break down the bronze armlet into metal bits, but I'm super interested in the molds this mod has to offer!

Edit: Aaaa tested it out a bit myself, so far it seems to be working just fine with the other mod! :D These new molds are wrist savers for sure!

💬 QuakingDoom, Jun 24th 2023 at 6:34 PM

Plate mold should require 200 units, since smithing one requires two ingots. Perhaps make it 1 voxel taller as well?

Edit: My bad, I thought it required only 100 units.

💬 QuixjoteAuthor, Jun 23rd 2023 at 8:40 AM

BisClever: Unknown. Bricklayers is not in my normal list of mods I use. No particular reason, I just don't do enough with pottery or similar to even think about it. I wouldn't be opposed to adding a compatibility layer for Bricklayers though if Tels wanted to send me a list of custom clays from their Mod 💜

💬 BisClever, Jun 21st 2023 at 4:45 AM

Hey Quixjote, is your mod compatible with Bricklayers clays?

💬 QuixjoteAuthor, Mar 15th 2023 at 6:54 AM

Icepick head mold? that doesn't sound like one of mine. Sounds interesting though.

💬 Lisabet, Dec 30th 2021 at 8:16 PM

still works in 1.16rc4

the handsaw blade is only craftable with the mold (it's a jumpstart on planks before you can smith a normal saw)

💬 Sephyr, Dec 4th 2021 at 1:10 AM

Not sure if this is just me being a noob, or if it is just the mold cast saw blade, but the recipe for the handsaw and the regular saw are the same, so it wont let me craft a regular saw. Does it only let you make a handsaw if you are using a mold cast sawblade?

Other than that, great mod and haven't found any other issues in 15.9.

Thanks MatFenric. I agree. This was the first modeling attempt. I am going to make the inner dimensions match better to the finished plate. Just finishing up a couple other molds to addd to the group and to upload again today 💜

💬 MatFenric, Mar 28th 2021 at 4:57 PM

Good idea. It would be better if the cast plate was the same size as the plate placed on the ground.
