I think that in the craft bench there should be different tabs for different items to make. E.g: Organics tab with biomass and biofuel, Iron tab with iron ingot and iron plate and iron rod etc.

That's a nice idea, making it easier to find what you want to craft with catagories.

Or just add more colums or bigger.   Plenty of space there.

Or a search option.

Tabs might be a bit too unwieldy, since you'd have to toggle through them to get what you want. Plus, they would take up a lot of horizontal space.

I'd recommend collapsible categories based on the resource type, then subcategories based on specific types of resources.

For example, you have an "Ore" category, which encompasses things like Iron, Copper, Coal, Limestone, etc. You could have a "Bio" category, for things like Biomass and Biofuel. An "Oil" category for things like plastic and rubber, etc.

Then, under a specific category, say Ore, you have something like an "Ingot" category, which would have things like Iron Ingots, Copper Ingots, Steel Ingots, etc.

Then, beyond even that, there should be subcategories of specific items if they have alternate recipes.

There should also be a button to "Toggle All Categories," which would simply expand or collapse all of the categories.

Alternatively, you can base each category off of which tier they come from, but I think what I said before seems more organized.

How about, while the craft bench is open, if you click on an item in the inventory you see all the recipes to make that item, or can be crafted using the clicked item.

So we now allow you to upvote what you like, or ignore what you don't. Points have also been adjusted to account for this change.
Please use the search function before posting a new question and upvote existing ones to bring more attention to them, It will help us a lot. <3
