The ability to use metal scrap so you can shape them in many ways so that you can have a variety of more crafting recipies. The idea began with shark cages, you could make them from wood (?) but maybe isn’t a good idea because it can’t resist hevy/fast stokes from rapid sharks. Thats why there could be added a metal station to modify metal as needed, so much so you could create a metal cage that you could use as the fish trap, have it in you raft and throw it down with some buoancy to keep it from going straight down.
If anything sorry for my english, I’m spanish and tried my best to make a good suggestion
