Custom names for crafting recepies

Currently, recepies are listed in the crafting menu by the end product. If multiple recepies have the same result, they also get the same name. We have the tag "id_suffix” as to not have variant recepies overwrite each other, but this is not visible to the player. Soups are an example of this. The liquid only, the soup in a mason jar, and the soup in a tin can are identically named.

I propose that recepies be given an optional value in JSON giving display names. The format could be something akin to "name" : "jar of %s" where %s inserts the crafting product. If no name is given in a recipe, assume "name" : "%s" In addition to differentiating variant recepies, this could give some more flavor to recepies, communicating to the player how they are crafting something. For example, “bake flatbread” or “whittle pointy stick”.

On a scale from flipping a boolean to rewriting the game, how hard would this be to implement?

Your scale is a bit broken, on that scale I’d say something like 0.000000001, but that’s not very helpful since basically no change ever gets above 0.000001 or so :slight_smile:

It wouldn’t be hard at all, you’d need to add the parameter and update the print function for recipes, that’s it.
