Topic category: Feature requests and ideas for MCreator
So, crafting recipes are currently created by having slots 0-9 be numbered, and each one given a slot. However, if the recipe were to have 9 of the same item (for example, an ore block) then this creates redundancy by creating 9 different identifiers. However, if all the slots were named the same, then only 1 identifier would be required rather than 9.
Custom liquids currently cause problems when attempted to be used in forge, as mcreator does not allow the user to use <modid>:<liquid>_bucket in recipes without directly modifying the code. This fix would be fairly simple, and it would to create a new "item" (so it wouldnt directly create this item) that can be used to add to recipes and other locations where an item is required.
