    What's with the magically disappearing glass jars?

    How many iterations are we going to see where we don't get our glass jars back from boiling eggs? Late game, sure, not a huge inconvenience. But, starting out, first couple of days, if you don't get lucky with your looting, it can be a HUGE issue. Even after the first couple of days, when boiled eggs are your primary food source, it's still a pain in the posterior.

    I guess they never figured out how to balance it.
    They could remove glas jar from forge recipies, add a %chance of getting it back to simulate it breaking or giving glas jars quality so they break after a few usages.

      Or the campfire recipe could be modified to provide one glass jar per in addition to the boiled egg.

        If you're having issues with jars why are you boiling stuff in the first place? Wouldn't you use your resources wisely and char some food and drink the water? Sometimes logic is the best cure. 😀

          That's assuming you were lucky enough to run across any game that early. The better question is, "why do you feel the need to be condescending?"

            Something like this is easily modded in.

            Off the top of my head I'd say it's adding one line in the boiled egg recipe in the recipes.xml.

              There is a modlet to get jars back after you consume the item. Think of it as carrying your boiled food around in the jar until you are ready to eat it.

                So eggs don't work well as a primary food source in the wastelands where game is scarce. Okay. So the mechanic that makes that true is ridiculously gamey. Okay. So what? Living off endless fresh eggs in a blasted, poisonous wasteland thronged with fire demons and zombie vultures makes a better game? It'd sure be easier, but if easier food is what you want in this game, get out of the wastelands. Because there's not enough food there to get by on easily super-early. Because finding enough eggs already takes enough time, and then you have to find the glass jars to boil them in. Because you can't just boil them in a pot. Because it's a game.

                  I've looked at it and the way they have the system organized, the fix would seem to be more convoluted than that. But, regardless, this is a simple oversight on the part of the dev team that should have been corrected a long time ago.

                  I'm sure there is, but the fact remains that the entire cooking system could use an overhaul.

                  Also, it would make more sense to think of them as pickled eggs in that respect. Something that could easily be implemented in a cooking system overhaul.

                    It probably could but I was just commenting on the OP of getting jars back from boiling eggs not on a complete overhaul.

                      There are jars everywhere, I can't see how someone can run out of jars and foods not returning them is a matter of balance.

                        was easy to fix, just add the line

                        <property name="Create_item" value="bottledWater"/>

                        in both the eating section of the xml for both boiled egg, and boiled meat

                        then create 2 custom icons

                          Or remove the glass jar from the recipe. I don't boil eggs in a jar, use a pot IRL. I don't mod so maybe altering the recipe is harder than returning the jar.

                            Dunno about you, but I can boil a dozen eggs in one pot all at once. So yeah, taking the jar out of the recipe would by my method.

                              I only see it as a day one issue. There are so many jars and you end up eating bacon eggs rather quickly... I guess unless you have not found a cooking pot, and in this case, why the hell haven't you found a cooking pot? I usually end up with between 10 and 20 of them on the first day.

                              I suppose for realism sake, maybe you get back broken glass... then you can pretend that boiling the glass jar directly on the fire broke it.
