Cao's Gem Crafting v1

Gems have more value, Crafting with Gems v1

I love to find gems, they feel like a treasure item, but they dont have much use.... so i decided to make them have some magical property. ... with this mod you can cook a gem with a bottle of ale, and it becomes a potion. or you can tan a wolf hide with a gem and it becomes a scroll. you can also smelt 3 normal gems into 1 flawless gem of the same type.

i figured ale is so common, alcohol brings out the potency. and i couldve done paper, but i figured wolves have some spiritual-magical potential so it makes sense to make scrolls from their hide.

i plan to add ALOT MORE recipes when the modtools come out... for now iam limited what i can do. ( i wouldve loved to make a new unique potion and scroll effects for each gem)


If you could donate, it would be great, I spent many hours before the creation kit was released to create this mod, to do so: click the donate button in the upper right, thank you.

    It was my point since I was an understudy that I will create a stage where understudies could get answers for their issue and they don't need to face inconvenience like me. Presently after long battle I am effective to deal with a best thesis writing service organization with cooperation of experienced writers. You can approach our essayists for direction free of expense or on the off chance that you require them to compose for you they will joyfully work for you.
