CURRENTLY IN A BETA FORM. RECIPES MAY BE REBALANCED IN FUTURE UPDATES.

Alternate Recipes gives you an alternative to many vanilla recipes. These new alternatives might save you resources, might save you time, or might just save some logistic trouble. Often, it does one at the expense of the others. Supports both normal and expensive mode recipes! 22 recipes as of the initial release, each with their own benefits, trade-offs, and new ratios. Build items without intermediate products, skip lower tier items, or make the first two science packs with very different materials!

Contains one new building, the blast furnace, which allows steel production from 4 iron ore and 1 coal, and doesn't require separate fuel. It can only produce steel, and is otherwise identical to a steel furnace, including the recipe.

Contains one new item, uranium shotgun shells. With double the damage per projectile and 25% more projectiles over the piercing shells it can mow down even the largest of biters and worms and trees with ease.
