syrup, (which i think could be substituted by honey in a lot of dishes, or maybe we could tap birch trees?) 

Yeah, probably is changed to honey or can get from birch trees if added.

crabs, (which could be a passive mob that reside on the lunar islands) 

Maybe or a mob similar to the Pebble Crabs?

flour (wheat could be used in grinding mill Warly has to be made into flour)

Think so

and turnips, (really the only thing in gorge this was REQUIRED for was turnip cake, maybe this will be added in the future)

Or it could be changed to different food item.

Those who voted no, can you give us reasons why you voted no?

They like the game to be hard, same reason why people don't like mods like Combined Status, etc.

Not me though, anything that gives the game clarity gets a yes from me. The nice design is a plus too.

That mechanic would definitely be a neat feature. Maybe crafting something like this in-game (like a map or something by a cartographer's table) and having to learn the different recipies either by trying to cook them yourself or witnessing other players make it.

Or if you just want to have it just like in Gorge.

Totally would like this, maybe a small book icon on the corner of the screen we can open and see the recipes. Craftable book someone mentioned also sounds nice.

I think that is a strange reason, people could just choose to not craft the book and it is not like people already look at wiki or make notes.

If the book will be added the way some of us believe and you need to make each recipe, it really won't help much since you already have made them. It would also take 1 inventory space unless you can just stand near it like Maxwell's book or other items or structures. I would prefer it you would have to have it in the hand in order to use it.

I missread the topic and assumed wrong, also I just woke up. I should have voted yes.

I don't think it should be something you craft because then a lot of people won't end up knowing about it, it would be better if it stayed like how it was in the Gorge a GUI you can click to bring up like the map, it would start out with all the recipes blank and then as you cook you would fill it out.

for example: if you make meatballs and you used 3 berries and one meat the recipe book would now show meatballs and that recipe you used but it would not show the others i.e. 3 berries and one monster meat or 2 berries and 2 meat

Can confirm, 75% of my bad decisions happen past 8 PM and before 10 AM.

It also doesn't help that I usually check the forums around those times.

 

Anyways, Im really torn on having a recipe book. More so because half of me wants a book that saves all recipes you make throughout your entire DST career (ie it saves to your profile), while the other half wants it to save on a server-by-server basis

Then by that logic shouldnt several items in the game be removed or changed? You could have it in the food tab, avaiable to craft on the 1st level science machine but visible and locked when you have no science machine and not made prototype.

true, true, let me explain a bit better

if it becomes a craftable item many may see it as a inconvenience having to keep it on you every time you cook something just to fill it out. on top of that if the book gets reset every time you change server some may see it as useless to fill out. and if you can only see the book while in game and not on the start menu some may craft it, look at and see its all blank and not understand how to fill it out and just leave it on the ground and never bother with it.

but if it stays how it is right now where you can look at it in the main menu and pull it up at anytime while playing and it doesn't get reset per server, new players won't have a hard time understanding it and older players might not see it as useless, because it would automatically fill out as you play.

also it was really fun and satisfying to fill out the whole book in the Gorge and have it to that little pop up every time you found a new recipe.

This was much better explanation.

Yes, I personally wouldn't like switching server to restart "discovering" recipes and I do like that people could just see all of the recipes but I would prefer to have it as a craftable book that one would discover the recipes, I might be one of few people who would rather have that. However I would rather have what you say than having no in-game recipe page.

 

It was fun that a lot of people tried to discover the different recipes. I do wonder, was there a reward or anything for discovering all of the recipes or was it just something fun to do? I don't remember.

i'd love for the Gorge style cooking to be in the game. Name of the game is dont' starve, and i'd love more recipes to not starve with!

Gorge was easily my favorite event the developers have done
