So. I've tested most of the combinations for possible tier 6 items. All of the combos I haven't tested yet involve clothes seeds. No clothes related splicing attempt I have made so far has had any results, so I'm starting to assume there are no recipes that involve them. Not sure, though.

I discovered two more of the new item recipes, Viking Helmet and Pigtails.

I'll be adding tier 6 to the SEEDIARY once I decide whether I want to test all of the clothes seed combos or not. Clothing seeds are a pain to get and I've maxed out my inventory and it still takes a ton of management if I include clothing seeds lol. Wish I knew for sure whether they are used in recipes or not.

Clothing pieces are dead-ends of the crafting tree, you should never be able to find/make seeds for clothing directly.

What makes this a big tricky is there are a FEW kinds of items that that seem like clothing but actually are classed as "consumable items".

For instance, the Halo and Devil Horns, you CAN get seeds for those, but they are not normal clothing as they have temporary effects, and when used DO drop gems and seeds sometimes. (Normal clothing can't be used or destroyed, so there is no seed production)

I have seeds for every tier 5 clothing item and some tier 6. The trees can provide seeds lol. Judging from your description that may be a bug though?

Edit: Also the recycling value for a lot of lower tier clothing feels really off for me. 40+ of an item should never equate to 0 gems imo @_@ Especially for items that you can only get in limited quantities from trees and not multiply

Yes I get that on recycling as well its either zero or 3 to 5 gems from 1 to rank 20 I did and even a 39 it seems weird.

Uh oh, that is a bug.. Although no harm done, other than the seeds will waste peoples time when they try to splice. Will fix, thanks! Those seeds are about to become very rare, may want to hold on to them.

Haha. Well, at least I'll have some cool collectibles. Don't have any high tier clothing seeds yet ='(

Also I could have tested like every combination in game by now if I had known that lmao. I spent most of my playtime yesterday getting all the tier 5 clothing seeds >.<

I think how it works is recycling exactly mimics how many gems you'd get if you punched the blocks - (maybe.. may be slightly less) - but, when punching blocks, sometimes you get seeds instead of gems. In those cases when recycling, you just get nothing.

So to get the full benefits of an item, you really do have to place it and break, but the cost is time and hassle of doing that.

The big problem is clothing, though.

I recycled over 40 red hair yesterday for 0 gems, for instance. That's pretty bad considering they're a dead end item that can't be multiplied or broken lol. Granted they were a biproduct of me hunting for red hair seeds, but still. Some clothing have okay average recycle rates, but seeing a tier 5 item worth less than dirt is sad =p

Hey guys I have a big problem. I bought some gems for 1.99 and it didn't go through so I bought it again. I was charged twice and received no gems. This is really disappointing and I would like my 5000 gems! Any ideas/help?!!!?
