    Master Craftsman Complete List!

    ***I recommend you use this list and make items as you play through the game. As soon as you see something you need to make things, just make it and toss it away if you don't need it! I also recommend you snap the achievements and verify the tracker counts any item you make!***

    Important note: I wasted a huge amount of time trying to make something from the "Dice" and "Speaker" items as they both say they are components. Unfortunately this is incorrect and as far as this achievement is concerned they don't make anything!!!

    Another important note: It seems a few people have been stuck at 98% and have had to re-craft things they have done before to get the achievement to pop. To save you some trouble I would suggest to snap your achievements and verify that the "Master Craftsman" achievement progress bar moves up whenever you are creating something for the first time. If it does not go up, make it again and if it still doesn't make a note of the item and come back to it later probably on another level. So far I haven't encountered anyone who has not been able to get this achievement so it's not a huge issue, just something to make a note of.

    Handy Tip: "Fooga" has said in the comments that you can reload your save after making an item and then make another item. For example if you have one putty and 5 keys you can make one key mould then reload to get the putty back and then make a different coloured key mould. This won't give you all the key moulds of course it is just to save time towards your achievement. I would suggest doing this as one of your last achievements as you will need to make most things anyway throughout the game. If you want to get the achievement out of the way or find yourself missing a few items that use similar components this tip may help you. "Fooga" has said that he did this successfully and got the achievement without any issues. Thanks Fooga! :)

    NOTE: Balsa wood can be bought from other inmates on HMP Irongate. It looks like a pale version of timber. Every few in game hours the inmates who are selling will change so keep checking their stuff. Tip: Press Y on any inmate to cycle through their inventory, stats and items for sale (if applicable). If anyone has found balsa wood anywhere else please let me know and I will add it to the guide.

    There are 57 items to craft in total. If you don't count 57 remember the Comb and Toothbrush Shiv aren't part of the achievement and the keys and Moulds have 5 each. I'm also including the full list of stuff from the PC version that is not in the Xbox One version so you know for sure you don't need these if you hear it anywhere else.

    Craft Items NOT in the Xbox One Version:
    Powered Screwdriver
    Cutting floss
    Glass Shank
    Wooden Bat
    Spiked Bat
    Infirmary Overalls (Just called Overalls on Xbox One)
    Cushioned/Padded/Plated POW Outfit
    Durable Contraband Pouch
    Die (You can find it but you cannot make it)

    JayD101 Also it doesn't necessarily have to say "Done! Unlocking" for you to have this issue. Sometimes it just won't pop! Just double check you are sure you have done the requirements, then search to check if there is a common bug that could be the reason for it not unlocking and if all good then you can follow the directions in the above link or just move on to something else and it will pop soon!
