This week’s Smile Game Builder tutorial is a continuation of last week’s a href=”http://smilegamebuilder.rpgmakertimes.info/smile-game-builder-tutorial-24-basic-crafting-system-cooking/” title=”Tutorial 24: Basic Crafting System (Cooking) | Smile Game Builder”>Basic Crafting System (Cooking), this time focusing on Mining.
This is a complete setup with a Mine (for ores) and a Smelter (for ingots) for you to craft weapons, armor or tools. You can then use the Cooking template to create your own items.
Although I’ll revisit this much later to include some more "advanced" techniques for mining ores – things like timers to refresh ores, pickaxes breaking and random gems – I’m leaving the crafting system for awhile.
Jackson Meira’s Resources
Also mentioned in the video is Jackson Meira’s House Building Pack, which I used for the Smelter. Be sure to visit his sites and give him some support, as he mostly creates his resources for free.
In this tutorial, I’m setting up a basic crafting system, specifically for cooking, using eggs and lemon balm as the ingredients. You need to have a recipe book before you can make anything and, with the correct ingredients, you can create a fried egg, an omelette (I spelled it incorrectly in the tutorial) and a healing potion.
Crafting System Expansion
This is part of a larger system that includes mining, fishing and general crafting. And it’s something that can be greatly expanded as time goes on.
I’ll revisit this some time in the future.
Incidentally, I used the table – a "magic table" – for cooking because the stove (where you normally cook things!) is being used for another part of this tutorial, an expansion of this Cooking system.
