Moonflowers and wooden spits both consistently decay more rapidly than food and less rapidly than treated bandages.

Re: Foraging Herbalism

Medicine crafts can only be used at the time of use. They can't be stored, sold, or made portable. That's the difference between them and first aid crafts. First Aid crafts are portable, but less efficacious. That's too bad -- I was hoping the medicine craftset would (a) eventually make an apotheca...

Re: Craft and Item Issues - Food

While I very much appreciate how much faster grill plain-chop and grill plain-steak letting me cook two pieces of meat at the time makes cooking go, there's still something weird about not having any craft with which to cook the last piece from an odd-numbered pile.

Re: Craft and Item Issues - Food

Also, the failure message on roast plain-roast suggests it's meant to produce something on failure; it doesn't: "You realize that one side of the meat is burning, so you quickly take it off of the spit. Paring off the outer charred pieces, you chop up the still-raw inside of the thick roast to salva...

Re: Craft and Item Issues - Food

The cooking craft roast plain-roast will turn either a raw wild boar ham or a raw venison roast (either about 3 pounds) into 6 approximately 2-pound slices of meat, an apparent four-fold increase. Edit: a raw boar roast (about 2 pounds) turns into 6 approximately 3-pound slices, a nine-fold increase.

Re: Craft and Item Issues - Food

The general-cooking craft chop meat-extras will turn a raw collection of offal (less than a pound) into 12 of a pound-weight hunk of raw $meat0 meat (presumably 12 pounds total).

In possibly related news, organ meat seems extraordinarily plentiful in our kitchens.

Re: Craft and Item Issues - Food

a roasted chunk of badger
a roasted chunk of weasel
a roasted chunk of hedgehog

All of these are still weighing in at about 3 pounds, even though the raw variety is a half-pound hunk. I suspect other meat types have the same issue.

Re: Object Adjustments

It is a hunk of raw organ meat
You would guess that this item weighs less than a pound.

It is a roasted chunk of organ
You would guess that this item weighs about 3 pounds.
