Newbie Questions

Post by Sharzade » Wed Jul 29, 2009 5:30 pm

Hi there!

I've been playing SWG for three months and have made a trader. Up to now she's been a tailor, and it's been fun putting tons of pretty outfits on sale, but now I want to try my hand at cooking. I've got a few questions.

Firstly, when foraging my Spy alt keeps finding cute little fruits and vegetables. Are any of these needed in cooking, or are they just for decoration?

I notice that not all recipes are listed in my Chef's repertoire when I'm at the crafting station. I can't find that Kommerken Steak recipe for eg. How do I find this recipe?

Is there a place where all the current effects of the Chef meals are laid out? I get mixed up by all the talk of SWG versions like NGE etc, so I'm not sure when I'm looking at today's Chef info or something that's no longer accurate due to game changes. I'd like to know what food helps players possibly paralyze animals so they can be milked, or which food improves a player's chances when sampling DNA etc. Do any food charts mention effect details like that?

Hoping for a little info to send me on my crafting way!

Cheers,

Sharz :wink:

Along with the exceptional eggs, milk, and cereal. As yet, I haven't been able to try it out, but will post some results soon. (tm) :mrgreen:

Kommerken Steak is a reward schematic. I forget atm what for, but that's why you don't have it, just like the Bantha Stew. There's an awesom site run by ONYX that has a spreadsheet with all the current recipes that I use, I will add the link when I find it, unless someone beats me to it.

And it was actually in the stickied FAQ just above this post. I just edited it now to highlight the interesting items :)

I just read the Komerkan steak schem since it was posted above. I haven't had either toon run the Lump theme park, I am boycotting that whole story line. I guess that's why i haven't seen this before.

Boycotting it, why so, I had quite some fun with the puzzles but admit that some required an English vocabulary that I needed help with. Not that it was so hard, but finding synonyms are not always that easy :)

Thank you!

Thanks for all the replies, and for getting me to notice all the links etc. I especially like the detailed chart, and will study it carefully. I'm already noticing all that stuff at the end about additives upping certain aspects of crafted food, so it looks quite interesting. It also looks like I'm gonna have to harvest more resources to give it all a proper go. :D So far all I've really cooked is pet food for my buddies and my sampling pet, so I've got a way to go yet!

About the themepark questing for Kommerken Steak, I'll have to see. We're only three friends in the game, so is that enough players to get through that quest, or should we look for other players? Is the quest on Tatooine?

Thanks again for all the help, it's much appreciated!!

It came out right as I was about to take a break from SWG for a few months. It was the straw that broke the camel's back. I just found it to be a ridiculous addition of non-Star Wars garbage. I have now heard that aside from the Steak, there are some other things that are useful. Maybe I will have to do it at some point, but right now, there are too many other things to do... 8)
