I’ve been playing Starbound for the past few weeks. There’s one feature that particularly adds to the crafting menu’s ease of use:
When crafting, subtracting from 1x item brings you to the max number of that item you can make, based on your inventory.
e.g. if you need 1 wood to create a wood block and you have 46 wood, clicking left on the wood block crafting multiplier will make it jump from 1x to 46x.
My suggestion is to set a cap on the amount per crafting order to a dozen (or something else that’s manageable) so that when you want to make ten windows, you don’t need to click the right arrow ten times, but rather left three times. Crafting more than 12 items is as simple as making a second order. I know some people had suggested the option for getting the crafters to make as many of an item as they have resources, but I don’t see much use for this in Stonehearth…
Anyway… Fewer clicks = better gameplay!
N.B. I don’t think the maintain in stockpile command would benefit from a maximum as it’s a calculated set-and-forget order.
