An addon for Wire Shortcuts.
This mod aims to combat the "cheat copper cables to use them in recipes"-concept of Wire Shortcuts and the availability of red wires and green wires in the early game through Wire Shortcuts.
The mod realizes it by replacing vanilla copper cables in every recipe, whether as ingredient or crafting result, with surrogate copper cables. The shortcut still gives (now 200) vanilla copper cables, but it won't be usable in any recipe, and it can only be used in wiring.
Every Wire Shortcut will be available from the start. However, the shortcuts for red wire and green wire will only give their respective items, when the player researched the technology 'Circuit network'.
