Make Tools, Weapons, and Workstations in Crashlands to break down the resources of The Planet, discover new schematics in the process. Craftables get ever more elaborate and ridiculous, and include Harvest Bombs and Laser Clotheslines!
You can also craft ability changing items called "trinkets" and "gadgets". Trinkets are items that give you passive abilities, like chances to cleave-harvest, health regeneration, creating poison clouds on hit, and all kinds of other goodies.
Gadgets are useable items that give you special abilities such as flamethrowers, swapping places with your pet, causing explosions, creating lightning storms, etc.
