    Hello, everyone! After the abandonment of both the original mod by @INFINITE POWER and the open-source rewrite by @Ardosos, as well as the closed-source format of the Rebranding mod by @BowToes, I've decided to write yet another version of the same mod.

    Quality of Life: Recipes intends to recreate, add to, and improve the recipes introduced by Quality of Life. Note that these are the recipes only. Gameplay tweaks and changes are not included, outside of vanilla recipe changes. The new mod uses the original sprites by INFINITE POWER and some code from Ardosos' version of the mod; otherwise, this mod has been written from the ground up.

    An up-to-date full table of recipes with icons can be found on the GitHub page.

    great mod, are you opened to more suggestions for combinations ?

    Absolutely! I do reserve the right to deny requests, though, for a number of reasons:
    • if I feel they might throw off the balance of the game;
    • if they're impossible to implement at the moment;
    • or if I feel that they wouldn't fit with the general idea of the mod.
    However, I'm open to most ideas, so let me know what you'd like!

    Why the thought of a "Man" potion is funny, It should say mana ;D

    Edit: @Untouchablekill, after a double-take, that is a typo in the QOL Rebranding mod by @BowToes, not mine. ;) But your report has pushed me to change how I set the tooltips of each item, so thanks anyway!

    Hello, are you still keeping this updated? The recipes that use the Heavy Work Bench don't seem to be functioning.

    EDIT: Nevermind, I messed up the one I was trying I guess. And the Fisherman's Pocket Guide uses the Bookcase instead of the Heavy Work Bench apparently. You might update your github to reflect this.
    Thank you for this mod, if nothing else it's so nice not to have to do 10000 fish quests and just hope you get the things you need.

    Oops, I messed up the crafting stations of a couple items on the GitHub. I'll see about fixing it. Edit: Should hopefully be right now. Thanks for the heads-up, @HermesHarbinger.

    What exactly makes the cybernetic utility helmet better than the utility helmet?

    Hi!This is an interesting MOD.Can I translate this MOD into Chinese?
  11. abluescarab

    abluescarab Skeletron Prime

    The Cybernetic Utility Helmet is an accessory instead of armor, so you can free up your helmet slot. The Utility Helmet is also applied to the mining gear set bonus, though, so's up to you which one you want to use.
    Yes, you can. That would be great! Thank you!

    Since the original Quality of life mod hasn't been updated and doesn't seem to work with terraria 1.3.5, does this somehow fix that or is it not for latest terraria at all? I REALLY want the original and this mod.

    This is a good mod, btw I recommend setting up a page for the mod. Or at least link to this post ._.

    By the way, I suggest to make a new placable combining heart lantern and start in a bottle.

    Hello @abluescarab , are you open to suggestions? if you are do you think you can add the shield of Cthulhu to the elemental boots? it has always bothered me that you can dash but not hit anything while doing it, I mean Bone Lee clearly dash and kicks your *** while hes at it.

    Thanks for the mod, it has always been on my list.
