This isn't an unprecedented concern. I imagine @McJty has been giving it some thought.My main complaint (and it's more of an opinion than anything) was that it didn't seem to make sense that I could build the dialer and teleporter out of wood planks, wood slabs and a few iron ingots. I felt like I should be stuck in the dimension for years, until I had the means to build what should be very complicated machines (but they weren't). But I guess I take things to literally sometimes. Just my 2 cent opinion (all that it's really worth).
Its one of those things where mechanics is the critical and interesting thing to work on, whereas recipes can be revised at any time and who cares
