For example, loot:gold is stack-able to 1000, but in a recipe, the game only recognizes how many gold chests there are, not how many is in the stack.
I have dug around a bit but not been able to figure out how to do so either. It seems like the “stacks” attribute in resources are only relevant when they are used in construction rather than crafting. In fact, if anyone knows how that mechanic interacts with recipes, I’d love to hear it. That is, can you use most of a stack of wood resource then build a fence out of it, or do the hearthlings consolidate resources together to use a full stack when crafting?
I’m not lazy, just too busy modding to work it out in game
