i don't want to require a skill, but i do want the player to find the recipe somewhere before being allowed to make the item. is this possible?
DevKit is an upgraded BBC mod.
Improve your mods.
No, not really. Since the recipes are auto-generated, and don't have their separate IDs or entries, you cannot give the properties and use them in the ingredients.
one last question sorta related, will my recipe show up during scavenging on scraps of paper auto-matically or do i need to do something to do that?
They will show up automatically. You can even find your "hidden" recipes during scavenging.
Pew pew pew!
new question, poisen arrows. is it possible to have a chance for character to cut themselves while making these?
a) There is no way to make crafting apply a condition directly, as far as I know.
b) You cannot have poisoned arrows - weapons/ammo cannot directly apply conditions to the targets, with the exception of the hard-coded ones (bleeding, stunned, etc.). That's why none of us made any stun-batons, flamethrowers, flashbangs or anything else of that sort.
