     I suggest a mod that makes scrapping actually make sense. Wile looting Sanctuary I noticed that when you scrap a car, it only gives you steel. Also, when you scrap a radio, all you get is rubber. (that makes absolutely no sense and whoever decided that deserves a nice firm slap) Cars should give you nuclear materials (because those cars are nuclear powered) and multiple kinds of metal. Radios should give you things like circuitry and copper and not things that a radio isn't made out of.... LIKE RUBBER. I don't remember what scrapping a tv gives you, but i remember that it made no sense just like cars and radios. One last gripe is that EVERYTHING in fallout seems to be made of steel. Clearly you wouldn't waist steel on a trash can. Normally trash cans would be tin or aluminum or some other metal that actually makes sense, but steel is to Fallout 4 what carbon is to Earth's lifeforms. I'm not suggesting anything game changing, just that, when you have a material that you need to find, you can go look for something that would have that material, scrap it, and get said material instead of getting rubber.

 

[EDIT] I've also noticed that adhesive is beyond rare. I get making some materials more uncommon than others, but i can confidently say adhesive is too uncommon. I have so much of everything else by breaking things down that my scavenging runs are always just to get glue.

Great ideas, Brad.  I made the same guffaw when I saw what radios broke down to.  I'd also like to see what materials an object produces upon mouse-over (and its carry weight).

Yea, the item breaking up is unpredictable. Gonna have to run a spreadsheet just to craft.

Yes, it would be great to see what items would be broken down into before doing said action. Also being broken down into semi-related things would be a huge improvement!

Great catch.

 

How about being able to just grab the screws off toys etc. Say, "use screwdriver to strip parts". Why do I have to bring back the entire toy car when i just want the screws?!!?

I guess I am a bit late but if you (or others reading this post) are still searching for a more realistic scrap mod - this might be the right one: http://www.nexusmods...ut4/mods/4814/?

I'd like that as well, a SCRAPPING KIT...

 

Like the bag of tools I take to the car scrapyard, in real life.

 

You could scrap items you are carrying, but the bag weighs 10, and you have to make it by getting tools when you are out looking for scrap.

 

As a negative, it could be less efficient than a workbench, yielding 50% less parts. But would be handy, if you were only after certain items, and were heavily over encumbered...

 

 

Recipe idea...

 

1 Hammer

1 Screwdriver

1 Ruler

2 Wrenches

1 Tyre wrench

1 Bag needed to be made to fill with tools
