Alternative crafting ingredients
An alternative crafting ingredient is an item that can be used in place of another item in a crafting recipe. On this wiki, in the recipe section, substitutes are listed as "Any <groupname>", or after an "or", where it will list alternate item(s) that can be used. Below is a list of all potential alternative crafting ingredients. Note that while these items can be substituted in many recipes in which they appear, they may not be able to be substituted in all of them. See an item's page for details on which recipes an item can be substituted in.

Grouped Items[edit | edit source]
There are several item groups. It is possible to "mix" items from same group in order to conserve material. This means that, for example, a Chest could be crafted with 8 Wood, 1 Iron Bar, and 1 Lead Bar, despite the player not having the required amount in total Iron or Lead alone.
They are listed as "Any <groupname>" in ingredients list of recipes.

- Using two different but equal bars for the same item can help conserve bars when the player does not have a large supply.
