[1.12] Two small questions about the json recipes


Recommended Posts



I want to create a recipe where you can put this as input:

"  X"

" Y "

"Z  "


but also this pattern:






So can you put multiple patterns in one json file? I can't make the recipe work in these directions without two patterns. Otherwise I'll need two json files.


Another question:


If I have a shapeless recipe, and I need more than one item of the same, can I just put in the id of that item once and then say "I need 4 of this item" instead of putting the id of the item multiple times?

Hi Kander16, I can try to help clarify some things with the new 1.12 recipe formatting:


As far as I know of with the shaped crafting recipes go, you are only allowed to 1 shape per .json file, thus requiring 2 files assuming you still want those same configurations.


Also for the shapeless recipes and the id's of the materials used. I experienced this as well but I had to change it to if I had more than one of the same thing I had to repeat the entry instead of using the ["count: X]; however, because Forge 1.12 is still in the early works, it's possible this could or couldn't change.


And as for the last one, I can't help you there as I've never messed with the OreDictionary.WILDCARD_VALUE too much. But I hope the rest helped you somewhat!

What is the replacement for OreDictionary.WILDCARD_VALUE to get an item work in a recipe no matter what the damage is?


Use its value (32767) directly.

Please don't PM me to ask for help. Asking your question in a public thread preserves it for people who are having the same problem in the future.
