I don't understand the "nugget" idea either. The leathers, plates,globs and jewels made sence for upgrading armor and weapons. It was a pain and a hard grind but it fit the story. Even using the candy and salt for weapon mods fit. Now there are these nuggets just laying around the yard. Or we can craft them with bug parts and sap? So are the nuggets just bugs that got trapped in a pool of sap and hardened? They could have used hundreds of items that are actually in the backyard as upgrades but they chose to makeup an item and call it nuggets. Cool nugget and fashion nugget what even is that?
