Start a timer that sticks on top of your ATITD-Window. After stopping the time, click save to store the time (with some text). Use the stored result to create an item recipe with. Or just for accessing it later.


The calculator is a very handy tool to calculate the time you need to produce a specific amount of items. It takes account of the item's components and the required actions to produce the item. You can create various recipes for any items. For components the calculator picks the cheapest recipe, if the given recipe isn't filtered out by the filters you defined in the Calculator-Profile.

But the main purpose of the calculator is comparing items. This comparisons can help you decide if you want to produce an item yourself or if you want to trade for it. Scrooge McDuck offers 10 flax for your 100 potash? Ask the calculator if you should snatch at the offer.

Cooking Assistant - Getting started

This is a small step-by-step-tutorial that gets you started into the cooking assistant.

  • For the start create a few categories for your ingredients
    • Cooking -> Manage Ingredient Categories
    • Enter a text in the top most line. Let's say: Herbs
    • Click Create
    • Enter a new text in the top most line: Bases. Click create again.
    • Optional: Remove the text in the top most line, click search to see all your categories listed.
    • Click OK
  • Now import some ingredients from your in-game-containers
    • Cooking -> Import Ingredients from ATITD Container Clipboard
    • Go to ATITD. Copy the herbs from your herbs-container. Ensure that only herbs are within the container.
      • Click the container, then Utility -> Copy Contents to Clipboard
    • Back in the cooking assistant, click "Paste Container"
    • In the categories-box select "Herbs" and click "Add ->".
    • Click Import, to import all pasted ingredients. They will be added to the Herbs category automatically.
    • Repeat the above steps for a container that contains a couple of your bases. Ensure you remove the Herbs category and add the Bases category instead.
    • (Hint: If you want to mass-add to categories later, you can just re-import the ingredients with the additional categories.)
  • After you imported herbs and bases, check the missing meals overview
    • Cooking -> Missing Meals Overview
    • By default, the missing meals overview is set to display combinations of 1 pair
  • Create a profile: Next to "Profile", still in the Missing Meals Overview, click the "Select..." button
    • Enter a text for your profile, ie "Default", and click Create
    • With your profile selected, click "Edit..."
    • In Allow Bases, add "Bases"
    • In Allow Additives, add "Herbs"
    • Click Done and Done again
    • The Missing Meals Overview now only shows bases from your Base-Category and Additives from your Herbs Category.
    • Now, still in the Missing Meals Overview, double-click on a meal you would like to cook.
    • The double-click created that meal in the DB. Cook it in the game to get its stats. If it had any stats, adjust them in the Meal-Data-Entry, then click "Save".
    • Back to the Missing Meals Overview, you will notice that this meal isn't listed anymore
  • Cooking -> Meals-Overview, to view all meals you already created

Bon appetit!
