With all the new chemicals cropping up in labs I was thinking it might be cool to make the chem recipes more grounded in reality. For example, aspirin out of water and oxidiser sounds weird, and then cooking meth and diazepam out of that sounds weirder. I’d be willing to go through all the craftable meds and research a more realistic recipe plus recipes for all the reagents if the devs aren’t opposed to it on game balance issues.
For example, aspirin should be.
- Salicylic Acid (made from willow bark)
- Acetic Anhydride (made from acetic acid, could also be used for heroin recipe and mixing with hydrogen peroxide to make explosives)
- Phosphoric Acid
- Clean Water
- Chemistry Set
- Nearby fridge (if possible)
