Secret crafting recipies
Fri, 10/07/2016 - 15:15

I wasn't sure where to put this so i'm posting it here. If it's in the wrong place please let me know.

I'm currently prepairing some high level item for my mod that can be crafted. But I want the crafting recipies to be a bit of a secret so the player has to discover them in-game.

 

However i do not want to leave the totally in the dark (and my mod description will have the secret recipies in spoilers if the player would rather just crate the item than experiment to learn the recipie)

 

So my question is, how would you give a hint for a crafting recipe? would you hide the recipie in a mod screenshot or give a written hint in the mod description or on a read me file?

Hidden GUI maybe? Make it like some Yu-Gi-Oh exodia type logic. You have to collect all of the pieces to craft your item, but once you have all of them in your inventory you can trigger a global event to throw a GUI with further instructions.

yep, you just need to have a global event with a condition string. Make your condition (HasPlayerItemInInventory or something to that effect, then following that string put a space and "&&" with no quotations, then enter in the same condition but for the next item. Do this for each and every item. You will need to make the GUI first or you'll get a recompile error.
