Creating Recipes

There are two ways to create recipes for crafting skills. One is to modify the skill's recipe list, the other is to create an item (GenRecipe) that players must have in their inventory in order to create that item.

Modifying recipe lists

A builder may use the shell commands or file browser to edit the skill's recipe list, or may use the Skill Recipes editor in the grinder to create a new recipe. After creating the new recipe(s) it is advised to view the skill's entire recipe list using the Skill Recipes editor in the grinder. If the grinder fails to pull up this skill's list, it means that one or more recipes in the list have an error. If you review the Server Log, you will see the line number of the first invalid recipe (remember, the list starts at line 0, not at line 1). Fix the error in the recipe list, and try to view the skill through the Skill Recipe editor again, repeating as often as required until you can see the full list of recipes through the editor.


GenRecipes allow a builder to add new items to a skill through discovery, instead of through leveling. A GenRecipe can contain a specified number of recipes for one skill.
