how will crafting work on xbox live the controller is only so big i would geuss that you would us analog sticks as movement&vision,L&R bumpers for changeing items triggers for use and placing but the style would be very hard to adapt to but also on crafting you would have to craft 1 thing at a time because you could'nt place multible objects in crafting
Crafting has already been shown multiple times. It will work much like Terraria's crafting system meaning you open a menu and everything you can craft appears there. You then select what you want to craft and it uses the items needed for said item.
Past that question I could not make heads or tails of the rest of your post. Sorry I couldn't help with anything else.
