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.
