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.

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?

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 :)

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~

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.

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.

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 👍

💬 Yanazake, Sep 29th at 9:38 PM

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

💬 Cousax, Sep 26th 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 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.)

💬 Cousax, Sep 26th 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 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 at 4:51 PM

Great mod. Also, Second!
