Topic: Optional tools for crafting when ingredient it's used for is optional  (Read 1201 times)

After modifying some cookery recipes more to my taste, I started wondering if it's possible to make some of the tools optional in case the ingredient you would need it for is optional and is omitted. For example, I modified Mushroom soup to have vegetables as optional (because when I make mushroom soup in RL, I always add vegetables too), and put a knife in as a tool needed for chopping and peeling the vegetables - but since the veggies are optional, it should only require the knife if they are included. As far as I can tell, it's not possible, so I ended up omitting the tool requirement in this case. Would there be any point in if the game behaved like that, or would it just make things too complicated for no real gain?

There is currently no if-then logic available to modders

A knife makes sense also for chopping up the mushrooms


A knife is an extremely common thing for characters, other than day 1 naked-afraid scenarios, to have so its not a huge change whether it is or isnt in the recipe
