I'm enjoying the game and hoped to get a lot out of crafting. The problem is, it's all very linear, no matter what they say about the 'excitement' of Discovery and finding new items to craft - its not really a discovery as such, if you've crafted more than once, you know exactly what you're getting as the same items make the gear.
That's not the main issue though. Because its still linear, with everyone crafting the same stuff, hardly anyone wants it as there is so much about. You can craft a nice rifle, put it in the Trading Post and there's at least 10 of them the same, all selling for 1 copper above the vendor trash price. Makes it pointless crafting other than for the sake of crafting, or making the odd item that you can use for an hour or do until you get an upgrade from loot etc.
Maybe it's people all trying to be the lowest price to get a sale - I was 1 copper above the lowest and had to remove about 30 items from the TP as no one was buying. I recycled them in the end.
I may be missing a trick, but crafting isn't particularly useful from what I can see.
