Hi. Some item want too high skill to make. If make you want item level is 15 and your skill level 14 Chance of success %30 of %40 but if level want 15 / your 15 you make it %100.Too much of this difference
need be change skill and item skill balance
I agree that they need to use some new sort of math...
skill required = 100%
your skill = x%
skill 30 - 100%
you 27 - x%
x=90% to craft using 100% quality tool
They need to apply tool quality after the skill math, some itens you have only 37% when you are 1 skill point to the required.
@zebitelo @RwN Balance made based on tools requirments and their quality to improve your skill. For example If u will take steel tools q100 and try to make any recepie 5-8 lvls higher than your skill then u'll get 100% success chance. Same with buildings requirments u can use stone anvil or iron or steel1 and they will give u different buff and increase in chances. So the problem is not in high levels of skill needed but in your efforts to make Computer with primitive stone tools. Just focus your attention on improving your tools and housing according to your skill lvl.
Think I need better tools.
