Mod for Don't Starve (Together) to craft and split gems to/from their constituent colors.
Compatible with Don't Starve Together, and all versions of Don't Starve, i. e. Shipwrecked, Hamlet, and Reign of Giants.
Refine green and orange gems by combining their respective primary color gems,
just like purple gems. Cast the deconstructor staff on purple, green and orange
gems to split them back into their primary colors.
New recipes (Prestihatitator / Shadow Manipulator):
- 1 Red Gem + 1 Yellow Gem -> Orange Gem
- 1 Blue Gem + 1 Yellow Gem -> Green Gem
- Purple Gem -> 1 Red Gem + 1 Blue Gem
- Orange Gem -> 1 Red Gem + 1 Yellow Gem
- Green Gem -> 1 Blue Gem + 1 Yellow Gem
Please note that this mod does not add crafting recipes for gems, you'll still need to farm for gems! However, this mod takes a bit of tedium out of farming for specific "high tier" colors of gems, as you can now combine two "low-tier" gems into green and orange gems, and split up the higher tier gems for recombination if you happen to have a surplus of a specific color. No extra cost except for deconstructor staff charges are incurred. In my humble opinion, this mod doesn't affect balancing as much as most other gem crafting mods, and stays very close to the vanilla feeling while still removing the tedious gem farming bits.
