I don't know about you, but I always end up with tons of useless weapons that I try to horde until I can sell them. What if you could craft those weapons back into ingots? Well with this mod you can!

The new crafting recipes can be found on the ingot press. In order to keep balance, the max number of ingots you can recieve is two; one ingot requires level 1 tinkering and 2 ingots requires level 4.

Also, if I've missed an item that should be added (that doesn't fall under the above) please leave a comment!

>> A smithing (instead of tinkering) dependent version of this mod is available at the forum thread below.
Forum thread: http://community.gaslampgames.com/threads/craft-meltdown.3546/

>> Must use fresh save for mod to take affect
>> Must have at least level 1 tinkering
>> Does not include expansion items at the moment
>> Items that require multiple items to craft, I've chosen to return the most promient one

* For items that require alchemy related ingredients, I am going to add them to an "extraction recipes" in the porta-still
* Add expansion items

* Nerfed ingot output: max ingots ever returned is 2; Level 1 tinkering is required for 1 ingot and level 4 tinkering for 2 ingots
* Added smithing version; must download from the forum link
* Added Rings
* Added Amulets
* Bumped to 1.0 as the mod now has everything I originally intended, but will continue to expand on it where I can
* Added chest plates
* Added shields
* Added orbs (return cracked orbs)
* Added Boots
* Added traps (return pressure plates)
* Added helmets
* The minimum tinkering level is now 1 for all items
* If an item used 3 ingots, level 1 will return 1 ingot, level 2 will return 2 ingots, and level 3 will return 3 ingots
* Initial release
* Only contains basic weapons that are craftable by the player - Crude Iron Sword, Rough Iron Sword, Iron Sword, Fine Iron Sword - both iron and steel varieties of swords, maces and axes

@asyaoran20 It sounds like you may want to consider this to be a bit closer to a cheat mod given that it does enable you to gain tonnes of ingots. That being said, you will usually end up with a whole slew of ingots late game anyway, so your call really.

Is this mod considered a Cheat Mod or is it balanced?

Why tinkering? Shouldn't this be a smithing ability?

Yo hoss, is it intended that the weapons that only require one ingot can then be smelted back into two ingots? Because it seems pretty imbalanced. Just a heads up.
