Yes Chef: Back in the Kitchen
What Does This Mod Do?
This mod is an update to TheBigBlueSerpent's MoreFoodMod and a continuation of More Farming by Mackinz, which added a ton of crops and a ton of different foods to the game. CN More Farming: Revitalization does the same, but in a more polished and developed way as well as creating any recipe you can dream up (I'm open to suggestions).
This mod adds almost 200 new meals, snacks, desserts and tons of other eatables, as well as 30+ new crops which can be found while adventuring among the stars or purchased at a local Terramart. On top of that, it also adds a multitude of appliances (Some available per race) which really fill out your kitchen. They aren't just decorations either, they are now a part of the cooking process! Have a vanilla blender lying around doing nothing but taking up space? BAM, it now has the ability to blend ingredients.
It doesn't just end at adding new ingredients or appliances, this mod also adds loads of recipes for using your new appliances. Ever wanted to bake a Pumpkin Pie? Well, now you can!
The intent of this mod is to match how cooking in real life works, if you know a recipe, why can't you just cook it? In this mod, there are no boundaries preventing cooking of a recipe, you know all recipes at the beginning, you just have to put together the ingredients!
It's even compatible with Frackin' Universe!
Now you may be wondering, "Why is it called More Farming if it doesn't JUST cover farming?" Well, my good compatriot it's ultimately because I ColonolNutty am dumb. I missed the opportunity to rename it before releasing it to the public, because of that, it is too late for a name change. There could be loads of mods dependent on this one that would need to be updated to accommodate a name change as well as a load of codex entries, and other assets that make reference to the More Farming name. If I could change it, it'd likely be closer to what the mod actually encompasses
Your New Favorite Shopping Center(s)
As I said before, this mod adds a fresh shipment of new items being sold at the Terramart.
What can be found here? In addition to their existing wares, the Terramart now sells various produce and seeds from More Farming (and vanilla) as well as a few codexes which will explain in detail a few of the features, some of them even introduce you to the world of cooking!
This is your main source for more crop seeds to expand your farms if you are not satisfied with your existing yields, and also allows access to crops which don't yet grow in the wild.
However, that is not all. The Infinity Express was also interested in expanding its wares to increase sales. Who can blame them?
At the Infinity Express, in addition to their existing miscellaneous items like Liquid Erchius and Processors, you can find the most important items in the universe...
...and cooking ingredients.
Though there is benefit to be had in producing your own ingredients for your dishes, the Infinity Express serves as a way to obtain necessary or optional ingredients like Cooking Oil, Salt and Ketchup, as well as packages of powdered ingredients like Flour, Yeast and Sugar.
Particularly important is the Sugar - word from anonymous sources tells us, there is a retiring bounty hunter with a soft-spot for pastries. You might need some in the future! Keep it in mind!
For the Survivalist in All of Us
Not everyone is keen on making trips to the grocery store to buy ingredients that can be made at home. After obtaining seeds from exploring (or the Terramart - we won't judge... much), you will need ways to shape these ingredients into food. Fortunately, you can do so with a couple of materials.
To make some basic appliances, especially when you don't have access to the Inventor's Table just yet, you can put them together by hand (via the crafting interface, default key is "c")
At the universally-standard Inventor's Table, you will find a new crafting station called Kitchen Crafting Table, craft it and place it down somewhere. Once you do, you will notice a unique interface, within this interface there are filters located on the left hand side for the various races, or you can choose All to view all appliances.
Note: Some appliances are only found under the Basic filter (Keep this in mind when looking for an appliance) the Distillery is one such example.
Each appliance, depending on the race it comes from, requires various ingredients. Hover over any recipe to view the ingredients needed. What's more, you will notice a few vanilla appliances, such as the Blender, Coffee Machine, and Microwave.
The most important of all "appliances", is the Recipe Book. This is an essential part of any aspiring chefs kitchen. It can be found no matter what filters you have set. Craft it, place it, and take a look inside.
You will find a whole load of recipes just waiting to be put together. Same as before with the Kitchen Crafting Table, you will notice filters on the left side. Only this time, these filter by the method used to make the recipes.
As an example, select Chop and you will see all things you can make by chopping up ingredients.
You may be asking yourself, there is no craft button!!!
It is standard throughout the universe for recipe books to exclude the ability to "cook" from them (After all, you wouldn't poke your own cookbook at home and expect it to make the meal for you).
A codex exists somewhere in the universe (Terramart) that explains all there is to know about the Recipe Book, it also makes mention of an alternative to conventional cooking, but we don't talk about that...
Even Old Dogs Can Learn New Tricks
First time users of More Farming may end up confused when they initially take a look inside the Recipe Book. Don't be - it's all part of the experience (Confusion and nausea are side effects). In order to be a successful chef, you will need to learn how to experiment, try different ingredients, see what comes out.
Just like in the real world, experimentation is key to cooking meals, new or old (Or you could just look at a recipe book, because someone else already found the recipe. Unlike real life though, you can't really fail, if nothing can be prepared with the ingredients used it means there is nothing currently existing that can be made with that combination, due to game limitations )
And, not only can you learn more tricks - so can the crops you are used to growing:
- Sugarcane now drops sugarcane instead of sugar as you'd expect, try milling it to see what you get.
- Neonmelons and Pumpkins now grow to their fullest potential. Try chopping them to bits, see what awaits you!
Wait, I Can Build With This Stuff Too?
Did I forget to mention the new blocks that have been added? I did, didn't I?
They are Neonmelon Blocks, Pumpkin Blocks, Sugar Blocks, Sugarcane Blocks, Chocolate Blocks, Dark Chocolate Blocks, White Chocolate Blocks, as well as a few others. You can make them at any old Wooden Workbench.
In addition, this mod adds recipes for Thatch, Bamboo and Sod Blocks. You make them in the same place as other the other blocks above.
A Chocolate-y Affair
Of all the basic ingredients added by this mod, Chocolate is the most complex to produce. It requires a few extra steps beyond just throwing stuff into a pot. This section will focus on refining Cocoa into Chocolate.
Like all other crops, Cocoa is obtained by growing its plant, the Cocoa tree, from seeds you have found on Jungle worlds or from the Terramart. Ready to be harvested, Cacao trees look like this:
To make the Cocoa Pods usable, you need to bake (All baking appliances are labelled with "Bake" in the name) them in an oven until they become Cocoa Nibs.
Now you need to grind up the Cocoa Nibs to produce Cocoa Powder (You can grind them up using any appliance labelled with "Mill") (which can also be bought at the Infinity Express).
Toss the Cocoa Powder back into an oven (Labelled with "Bake") to produce Chocolate Liquor (It is non-alcoholic)
Now toss this Chocolate Liquor into a pressing appliance (Any appliance labelled with "Press") to produce... Cocoa Butter! Be careful you don't use up all of the Chocolate Liquor, Chocolate itself uses this as an ingredient, some desserts use it as well.
And for the final step, to craft Chocolate in all it's glory, you will need to bake Cocoa Butter, Chocolate Liquor, Milk, Sugar, and Vanilla Extract together within an oven.
What's that? How do you get Vanilla Extract? Well, my good buddy, you make it of course! You can also purchase it at an Infinity Express, but where's the fun in that? I'll leave how to make Vanilla Extract for you to figure out.
There are quests?!
You heard that correctly! There are now quests that will take you through some basic steps to get you started with the new cooking system, you can find them simply by locating the appropriate codexes. The Terramart sells a few codexes, some of which will provide instructions on the usages of appliances.
The first of many quests, starts when you pick up the Protectorate Camp Guide CH1 book. Use it from your inventory and the quest will begin (If you haven't completed it already of course).
If you're a new space explorer, you can find the chapters within your ships locker.
Hindsight is 20/20 (Installing, Reporting Issues and Suggestions)
Humans are not perfect. We can overlook many things. That is why this section is necessary,
1. Navigate to your \Starbound\mods\ folder, usually found within \Steam\steamapps\common\
2. Download the ZIP file associated with this mod.
3. Open the ZIP file with a program like 7Zip.
4. Drag the folder "MoreFarming" (or similar) into your mods folder.

Always post your issues IN THE DISCUSSION THREAD OR IN GITHUB you can also post it in the Steam workshop version as well. I am very attentive, and I will always respond to an issue posted in the Discussion thread and/or github (I get emails when done in github).
Regarding game crashing: Error pop-ups tell modders nothing about how to solve any issue you may come across. A basic guide to reporting errors is here. I WILL need to see your log file before I can help you. Capisce?
Other issues: If your issue is not crash-related, but something more along the lines of "this can't be crafted" or "I get Perfectly Generic Items from harvesting this", I may need to see your log file as well - but it's more important that you post in the Discussion thread on the matter.
Please leave suggestions in the Discussion thread or log an issue on the github repository. I will respond to them with my thoughts there
