“let him cook”


I need a Minecraft Tools version of this!


Steam Workshop mod now working! Shame about the video I posted, though…

What happened to the video? Is there a reason why you didn’t upload you Youtube as in my experience those videos don’t usually get randomly deleted?

I generally avoid Google wherever I can. Youtube is an exception though, as it has such a monopoly over online video content. I was thinking that I might have to get a Youtube account for this sort of thing.

Well, each to their own, I guess.

Edit: Mod updated for Thrive 0.6.5. This version won’t work in previous Thrive versions, unfortunately.
