Heat Packs instead of Torches
« on: March 16, 2018, 11:51:18 PM »

I know this is an old topic, but it hasn't been addressed and I think it's important.

Most people who have played for any length of time will agree that it is as annoying as snot that your storage, replicator, and processor are taken over by the production of torches due to the food recipes that use torches.  Equipment storage is used up since torches still don't stack in storage (thankfully they do now stack, sort of, in the replicator) and they are considered equipment rather than resource, so it limits the equipment you can actually store.  Replicator queues are filled up because storage is full and there is no place to put the new torches (thankfully two slots have been reserved for player use only).  Processor requests for fat (for instance trying to make beacons) are immediately stolen before you can grab it, why? to make more torches, of course.

Players have asked repeatedly to replace all food recipes that use torches to use heat packs instead.  This is a small and easy thing to do.  Torches can still be used as equipment, if you want to place a torch, or swing a torch as a weapon.  Do not use equipment as part of a food recipe!!!  It bogs down every process.

Thanks in advance.
