Expanding the Crafting System

11 posts in this topic

I'm looking for some sort of timeline, as to when you guys will be expanding the current crafting system. I'm especially interested in the more common recipes like Bandages and in general more base building. I'm aware that there is a "Custom Crafting System", but many server owners wont use this, as they are waiting/expecting you guys to put the recipes in the mod anyway.

I was in doubt whether or not to post this in the "Feature Wishes" board, or just in one of the general ones, but considering it is something that isn't in the mod yet, I decided this was the proper place.

Otherwise, keep up the good work with mod, loving it :)

I completely agree. I would love to see more craftables, more lootables, and less stuff for sale at the trader. This is a survival mod afterall, and purchasing resources from an unlimited stocked supplier isn't very survival at all.

This is not a survival MOD, stop calling it that, this is more wasteland based than Dayz.

Once the mod is complete it may be but however right now it really isn't a survival mod.

 That's why my original comment was asking for more lootables and craftables and less buyables.

The other guy was saying that this isn't a survival mod.

I'm asking for these features since it is supposed to be a survival mod.

Well They will get done when they can. They are doing this out of their own time and its a hobby. Plus the 2 main devs have jobs that require a lot of attention outside of Exile Mod

you could make your own recipe's, here's some of the ones I use for you

    };
     components[] =
    {
  {4, "Exile_Item_Vishpirin"}  
    };
 };
// end of advanced crafting ***********************************************************************************

config.cpp in mission file, I dropped this in just before:

class EmptyFuelCanister: Exile_AbstractCraftingRecipe

plus there are more on the forums:

but you could pretty much make anything so no real need for the developers to hurry on this one as they are pretty simple to do yourself

Considering this part of the board is a "Feature Wishes", you cant really argue against us making wishes :)

Many server owners dosn't like to use those "Custom Crafting Recipes", as I said in the OP. Because they are expecting that the mod itself will implement them soon... So if we had something to go on, like a theoritical timeline, we could argue against their opinion and then we might be able to change it.
