Amber's recipe thread

Post by jack1974 » Tue Oct 25, 2016 7:34 am

Feel free to submit ideas for recipes for the game!
I am obviously going to do them, but like the Marsh stuff Bob posted in another thread, I can always use some suggestions :twisted:

All recipes are in the formula:
INGREDIENT1+INGREDIENT2+INGREDIENT3 etc (up to 5) = RESULT

However is possible to use as ingredient a crafted item. So you could easily have stuff like:
COPPER ORE + FUEL = COPPER INGOT
AZURITE NUGGET + GEMCUTTING TOOLS = AZURITE CRYSTAL
COPPER INGOT + AZURITE CRYSTAL = AZURITE RING

and so on :)

Below the full list of icons done! I can add a few more, but as usual for time/money reason I might reuse them changing colors or minor details. For example a gem could be recolored to be another one, a bag of flour (white) could be colored in purple and become demon skin powder, and so on!

Tools - to craft certain things, like wood or jewelry. I just used a generic tools, might split in specific tools later, like "gem-cutting tool".

Raw items: probably the most used in potions

Raw ore
Image

Ingots
Image

Gem nuggets
Image

Gem pebbles
Image

Gem crystals
Image

Mushrooms
Image

Leather and clothing (currently unused)
Image

Fuel types (also some woods but are duplicate items)
Image

Food! yum
Image

Enchanted items. The runes are empty since I will put rune symbols over them in the game
Image

Woods

Do you have item names we can play with? I want to suggest something like DRAGON MUCUS + OTHER ITEM = SOME TYPE OF GLUE but I don't know what we have to work with!

Yeah, well, what are the ingredients, or do we make those up as well?

True good point. I have some base ingredients, plus a bunch of other stuff.
If you want to help I could post icon images of all the ingredients. For some I already have names, for others not (like various fungus or herbs).

Also, how far into goofy do you want to go? Or should it all be super serious?

Dragon Mucus + Carved Stick + Freezing Water = Dragon Popsicle :lol:

I uploaded all the items done so far. I have a few more being made though :)
No need to be super serious, some funny stuff like that is fine.

The main thing is, since I should display also the final item icon, it's not like I can commission 500 icons (there are already a lot as you can see). So if you can reuse an existing image for the final item is better. Or if you can create like 5-6 new recipes that reuse same icons (can be changed in colors and so on) then at least commissioning a new one is "worth it" :mrgreen:

Probably most items should produce potions, which is the easiest way to reuse the same icon. Like:
harpy feather+dragon blood+mushroom=levitate potion
and such :lol:

That's why we asked for a list. :) And thanks for that.

Thank you for any suggestions. Currently as posted on twitter I have 13 recipes and 47 ingredients. I'm not sure yet how much far I want to go, but I think something like at least 100 recipes and 200 between ingredients and resulting items (some can be reused as ingredient while others not) seems a good compromise!

Here is some suggestions

Claw1 + Fang1 + Blood1 + Bone1 = Familiar1

And you could do the same with 2 and 3 and you could maybe reuse some of monster images you already have for it. We already know from some of previous games that nobles are crazy for those :) .

And if you go for it you could do the similar for different types of familiars like

Eye1 + Feather1 + Fang1 + something1 = Flying Familiar.

Haha interesting. The only problem is that the items art is painted while the monster art I have is linear+cellshade, so not sure if the final result would look good. But worse case I could get a few "familiars" made for this :)
