Bookcases don't need Books
« on: January 02, 2018, 03:27:06 AM »
Just a curious thing I noticed while crafting in Survival Mode, that being the lack of books needed to craft a bookcase. To craft one, apparently all you need is two wood planks which seems very odd considering books do exist in the game as a low-level crafting material.

I was told in the Discord to post here so any input or anything like that is well appreciated  :D

I've always wondered this myself, does not make sense. They should add books into the crating recipe.

It's because books were created some time after book cases, and the book case recipe never got updated.

Are we likely to see a change in the recipe then?
Thanks Gold Knight for the amazing sig!

I don't see the issue. I mean I guess bookcases hold books, but aren't they also containers as well? In theory making the bookcases with books means you shouldn't be able to place as many original books in the bookcase, but I guess I'm over thinking it.

I do see what you mean, but the block itself contains books inside it no matter what, so it just makes sense that books should be part of the recipe.  :P
