At level 5 you can request the alchemy Gatherer from your profile. Alchemy will allow you to assemble different potions and objects. Here's a quick run-through of the alchemy system.
On the HUD is an icon of the selected item, along with some info about the cost of the item. Also there are these buttons:
Add: Adds the currently selected item to the mix.
Use: If the item is classed as usable, the use button will use that item.
Sell/stack: Sells the object, stand next to a TiS-Vend to sell. Click the stack button under sell to sell the entire stack of the selected item. Make sure you wear the TiS main-HUD when selling or you won't get any money.
Discard/Stack: Discards a single item or a stack of the selected item.
Green arrows: Allows you to scroll through the items. Scrolling through the inventory also brings up a list of all your inventory items.
Icon of item: Gives you some more info about the item you currently have selected.
Your alchemy-HUD can only contain 20 items at a time. Anything over that will be discarded and there is no way to get them back. (This is an SL limitation)
If the item is an ingredient the name starts with an I. on the list.
If the icon is a potion/useable the name starts with a P. on the list.
The value in parenthesis shows how many of the item you are currently holding.
On the bottom of the HUD is your gathering skill. You gain skill when you harvest plants and items. Higher skill means you have a higher chance to actually find something useful when harvesting. The maximum skill is 150.
To harvest an item, stand close to it and click it or press the use button (E). Items are generally found in sims with a TiS-vendor. Refer to the front page for vendor-locations. The mining-nodes scattered around certain sims need to be punched or shot to be harvested.
Mix a potion or create an object: In order to do this you should first find a recipe for the item you want to make. You can find a list of recipes here. Not all recipes are listed though. You will just have to look around/try yourself or find a player who knows. When you have done this, follow these steps:
1. Select the ingredient, then click Add. The item gets added to the mix on the left. You can mix between 2 and 4 ingredients at once.
2. Click combine and hopefully the new mixed item gets added to your inventory.
3. Use the potion or item (whenever you wish), the name of the potion will show up on your HUD.
The are also some gestures built in for hotkeys: (Shift+Up) = Next gatherer item (Shift+Dn) = Previous gatherer item Q = USE current potion (if currently selected item is a potion)
Website mixing If you go to your ingredient vault you can make potions there directly by clicking the icon for a potion you can make. This only works for potions though and not for craftables.
That's how to use the potion-system. Whenever it is updated you can get it from your profile.
