Wondering if the devs would consider having regular machines that are used with regular coils.
And advanced machines that are used with advanced coils, for mid-high/high level players. Recipes that are way out of reach for newer players & require a lot of power could be moved to the advanced machines.
I think this would give more ability to newer & mid-level players to craft some machines/coils & smooth their progression a bit. It might also help ease them into the crafting system a bit better. Yes it would probably make the regular coils worth less, but they have already gone way down in price and I don’t think most mid-high/high level players use them.
And instead of requiring 12 machined copper and 4 compact diamonds to make a basic coil, this could be simplified to just requiring the machined copper:
The advanced coil requirements would remain as they are. The advanced machines would be new recipes for mid-high/high level players.
