ABSOLUTELY D I S G U S T I N G and the worst part of playing cook. if you dont know what it's like here's a VISIION

>want to make BUTTER BISCUITS
>have 3 buns and 3 butter ready
>click on crafting menu
>wait for it to load
>sift through categories to reach the food menu
>search until you find the breads menu
>click the butter biscuit option
>wait for it to process
>repeat this and also wait for the time gate multiplied by the number of biscuits you wanna make
>if you spam the button it can process up to 3 at the same time and finish them but even then it's not guaranteed
>if you close the menu it will open again by itself at the end of the process
>serve your food cold from waiting for menus to load

now repeat this for any food item you wanna make that happens to be on the menu, honestly just give us food crafting like on goon where they have a food menu that is triple our's in sheer volume but every single item is made using the tools you have in the kitchen and not some SHIT-UI menu

i realize this is easier said than done but hey there wasnt a thread (i think)

I support that. And maybe rework the cookbook to not just link wiki.

May as well remove tablecrafting at that point, not that I’d be upset with that outcome

Since i'm trying to play chef more, lets brainstorm some changes.

I like the flour usage in the current system. I like the different ways of processing dough to make bases for different meals.
I thought I would hate the custom recipes, but they're pretty convenient, you can just dump stuff you have no use for. But, why ain't custom recipes incorporated into the normal recipes? If I have a bun, and a steak, why do I have to go menu to make a Burger, why can't I just slam them together? Or rather, you can do that, but you will get custom burger, instead recipe Burger.

So there, move recipes from crafting menu, into "slamming foodstuff together".

what if we remove food recipes for stuff like burger and pizza and have the name of the custom burger change with the ingredients: put brain into bun -> brain burger -> put xeno meat and chili -> spicy xenomeat brainburger

Recipes also have unique sprites. They should be superior.

While we're at it, make grinding flour less time consuming, maybe a hopper for food processing/grinding, with upgrades can eject filled bottles of ingredients

As long as we don't lose any recipes, I'd welcome an alternative to the crafting menu. It would be nice to have an incentive to not having all my ingredients in one huge game-crashing-upon-right-click pile.

Of course. Because if you right clicked it you freeze into a block of space ice.
We need more ice cream flavors in the game btw

Go for it goof. Just let there be more easily accessible recipes that lizards can eat. Half of the time I end up starving because the chef just spams bread based recipes cause they're easily accessible. Then I'm either starving, living on jerky, or puking because of bread poisoning.

I feel like there's a way to fix this without adding more recipes actually. Maybe placing meatwheat.

also if anyone goes 'deal with it you ligger fuck' then keep in mind that literally every roundstart race has a way to deal with food. Flypeople eat vomit, mothpeople eat clothes, felinids are basically humans, and plasmapeople don't need to eat.

edit: also lizard simplemobs eat cockroaches. maybe lizard mobs can do too. This is not the topic of this thread, though.

If we can kill it in a way that odesn't remove recipes or make it insanely confusing then yeah go for it
