Please Change The Cooking Set
« on: February 18, 2018, 05:52:19 PM »

I've been enjoying the game for the past few days, until I crashed into the cooking set. Not only were there no in game help to get me started on it, I had to google what to do with it, but it also breaks with the rest of the internal crafting logic. I can see what the team has been trying to go for with having to add ingredients before the meal is cooked, but this type of logic not used anywhere else. Sure I see the entertainment in experimenting to find recipes, but forcing me as a player to memorize a bunch of them? Again, this type of logic isn't used anywhere else. Everything else is light, simple and casual. I just fail to see the logic of introducing such a mechanic, when it so clearly is in contrast to the rest of the game.

I'm pretty sure it is not just me that feels this way, from looking at the steam forums and other places where I had to go to actually figure out how to get this to work, and I'll be sticking with grilled and salted meat and crayfish until something better comes along or this is fixed.

I don't mind having to research, but what I want to see is a recipe book that you can refer to once you discover something, so that you don't have to do everything from memory.  Until then, you can always use the Portia wikia.  Link is in the general discussion section in the cooking thread.  You can open it in a browser and go back and forth from the game using the windows button on your keyboard.  Be sure to pause the game when you tab away, or the time will keep running.

Yeah, a recipe book will make things easier.
