About this mod

Changes the crafting recipes to be more balanced in the early and late game. Optional harder recipes for slow progression.

Requirements
Permissions and credits
This mod requires Content Patcher.

Do you feel like it's too easy getting hundreds of artisan machines resulting in infinite money? That basic sprinklers, speed-gro fertilizers, and wild bait aren't worth crafting? That Pine Tar and Maple Syrup has next to no uses? Well I did, so I went through and adjusted a few recipes. My goal is to make the early game less tedious while also making money stay meaningful for longer.

-----------------------------------------

All of the following recipe changes can be individually adjusted using the config file.

Biggest Changes
- Basic Sprinklers no longer require reaching level 40 of the mines, making them worth crafting and resulting in a less tedious early game. 
- Quality and Iridium Sprinklers now cost more.
- Artisan machines now cost more and most require Oak Resin, Maple Syrup, or Pine Tar which limits how many you can make in a day.
- Tappers now require a small amount of Hardwood which limits how many you can make a day.
- Coal removed from most recipes and replaced with something else.
- Speed-Gro Fertilizers now uses Sap and Bug Meat instead. Deluxe Speed-Gro requires adding fish.
- Wild Bait now requires less materials, though still significantly more than normal bait.

Config Options
