This article is a Work in Progress. It may contain out of date or incomplete information.
After building a base or purchasing a building in town, crafting can be started. Technology must be researched in order to build all crafting stations. Aside from in weapon smithing, the quality of crafted materials is solely dependent on the crafter's level in the related skill.
Crafting through Labouring Edit
The following crafting stations will improve the Labouring skill of the worker.
Fabric Loom Edit
In order to make Fabrics, characters must use a Fabric Loom. Fabric Looms turn Cotton into fabric. After further researching, characters can build Fabric Looms which will use Hemp instead. Fabrics are also needed for crafting on a Clothing Bench, Chain Armour Crafting Bench, and a Heavy Armour Smithy.
Leather Tanning Bench Edit
The related technology for this crafting is Leather Armour Crafting.
Armour Smithing Edit
A great way to make Cats without having to use up rarer Research Artifacts is by crafting Armour. Armour quality and crafting speed are only influenced by the Armour Smith statistic. Characters can also gain experience in Armour Smithing while crafting Chainmail and Armour Plating. Armour crafting is split into several different categories, and in order to craft everything the following benches and smithies must be built:
Clothing Bench Edit
Leather Armour Crafting Bench Edit
Leather can be made into Clothing, Light Armour, or Medium Armour. A Leather Armour Crafting Bench is a great choice for characters who want to turn Leather into armour. However, buying leather from stores can be costly and inconvenient as leather is not commonly in high stock.
Chainmail Armour Crafting Edit
In order to create Chainmail Sheets, characters must build a Chainmail Sheet Fabrication Bench. These benches turn Raw Iron into chainmail. Creating Chainmail Sheets alone can be a good source of money since Iron is easily available in many regions. Selling Chainmail Sheets can be a good way to level up Armour Smith before purchasing blueprints for chain armour. Chain armour can be created on a Chain Armour Crafting Bench.
Armour Plating and Heavy Armour Edit
In order to use a Heavy Armour Smithy, characters need Armour Plating. Heavy armour smithing is roughly the same as chain armour smithing, although there are more armour options. The Heavy Armour Smithy also makes lighter armour which requires Amour Plating, such as Heart Protectors.
Weapon Smithing Edit
Weapon crafting speed is influenced by the Weapon Smith statistic. Unlike Armour Smithing, more researching is required to make better quality weapons.
While furnaces do not affect the Weapon Smith level of characters, it is convenient to have one while beginning Weapon Smithing. Characters can use a Furnace to melt down low quality weapons and regain their Raw Iron. This allows players to continue smithing even if their iron gathering is less efficient. However, players must add each weapon to the furnace, making it require more attention than iron gathering, which can be added to a character's jobs.
Furnaces can be unlocked through researching Weapon Melting.
Weapon Smithing Edit
The related technologies for this crafting are Basic Weapon Smithing, Basic Weapon Grades, Advanced Weapon Smithing, and Advances Weapon Grades. Some weapons can be unlocked through researching Sabres, Advanced Sabres, Katanas, Advanced Katanas, Heavy Weapons, and Cleavers. In order to make the rest of the weapons, Blueprints are needed.
Crafting Medical Supplies Edit
All different tiers of the first aid kit are made at a Medical Workbench. After research, splint kits can also be made there. Characters will earn Field Medic experience while using the Medical Workbench.
Robotics Crafting Edit
stuff makes robotics skill yes
Electrical Workbench Edit
makes like elecrtical components man
Robotics Bench Edit
makes some fancy robot stuff but NOT LIMBS
