Improve tooltip for recipes that produce <1 of one thing

Post by super_aardvark »

This isn't relevant in vanilla, or I'd put it in Bug Reports, but mods sometimes create recipes where there's a single product with only a chance of being produced. When there are multiple products, the recipe tooltip displays the percentage chance of each thing being produced. However, if there's only a single product, the tooltip doesn't show the percentage, and the player is left completely in the dark. Here's a screenshot with an example: https://imgur.com/qs1zdv1. The tooltip makes it look like this recipe always produces one Sapphirite Ore, but in fact the amount is 0.25. There's a similar recipe that uses a catalyst and produces 0.5 Sapphirite Ore, and with two products, that recipe's tooltip shows the percentage chance for each. The player can't make an informed decision about which recipe to use when the relevant information isn't shown.
