Hi! I'm completely new to modding for Fallout New Vegas - I use an assortment of mods that I like, but have started to think that maybe it would be convenient for me if I learned more about how to build my own, as well as how to properly merge them.
So, I snagged a copy of FNV's GECK, popped it open, and started with something simple - adding a recipe to convert legion denarii to scrap metal, to get a handle on how exactly to add new workbench recipes.
So far so good - the recipe shows up in the Workbench as expected, under the Breakdown category, and it's titled exactly how I wrote it (Scrap from Denarii) -- but one problem. I have 236 Legion Denarius in my inventory, but the workbench seems to think I have zero for the purposes of my custom recipe. I'm using the same ingredient ID (LegionMoney1) that appears in the 12 Gauge Coin Shot, which shows my denarii count appropriately, but my custom recipe doesn't seem to be acknowledging it properly. Any ideas on what I did wrong?
(And yes, I know converting ten denarii to one scrap metal is highly non-cost-effective. Right now I'm just trying to learn how to make recipes work...)
