"An Updated Unified Crafting Bench for Mod Content"

- The Source of Much Knowledge​

The Tabula Rasa is designed to be a unified crafting bench for mod content.​

Modders can tag their recipes with "mod" to add it to the tablet, allowing players to access the additional content without player.config patches. Modders can now also organize their content using additional tags and filter buttons in the crafting menu.

Note that the Tabula Rasa will display any associated recipes regardless of whether the blueprint is known, so it is a poor choice for progression-driven content where the modder wants recipes to 'unlock' as the player progresses. You can, however, design your recipes so that the ability to craft is limited to certain tiers. This mod instead focuses primarily on helping others share their creations.

Conversely, this dependence on other mods makes the Tabula Rasa almost useless without companion mods. It still looks great, though, so even if you cannot find a compatible mod, you can install it anyway.

- Lost in Translation​

As the original mod( ) has not been updated since February of 2014, and was released under an update-friendly Creative Commons license ( ), I decided to have a go at updating it. With help from Wellbott, it has been updated for Cheerful Giraffe and re-released under the same license. Beyond credit for updating it, all credit for the mod belongs to the original authors - SnoopJeDi and LowestFormOfWit.

The Tabula Rasa was a universal mod back during the Koalas. Now it can be one for Cheerful Giraffe and beyond.

- Other Miscellaneous Things​

Thanks to SnoopJeDi and LowestFormOfWit for creating the original Tabula Rasa mod. If LFOW decides to do so, he can take over this mod again without hassle.
Thanks to Peasly Wellbott for being so damn good with lua.
Thanks to SuperMandrew for helping with the update to Cheerful Giraffe
Thanks to Chucklefish for making Starbound.

@Penguin: Very late to this, but it doesn't look like it's Tabula Rasa's fault, but rather "Material Shop"'s fault. It has a broken JSON file.

I am not sure why, but this seems to be the mod causing my game to freeze constantly. Here is the log. Someone on Discord said it looks like something with its buttons.
