SUMMARY: Infrastructure "Adds not-quite implemented basic analytical tools for chemistry."

Purpose of change

Using new chemistry qualities (#27206), adds the sub-tools that collectively form a "basic analytical kit" with analysis quality 1.

Describe the solution

After some discussion I think the most important analytical tools for common chemical synthesis are:

  • accurate weighing
  • spectrophotometry
  • pH measurement
  • melting point determination
  • thin layer chromatography

I have created sub-tools to represent these tools, and a "kit" tool that includes all of them and has an analysis 1 quality.

Describe alternatives you've considered

Each of these items could have analysis 1 individually, but that winds up with weird things like using a melting point apparatus to determine if your ethanol is pure. Instead, if a recipe only needs a melting point apparatus, you could always include that in the recipe or something.

Additional context

Part of an ongoing effort to add science tools, without putting them all in a single huge PR.

Next up will be recipes to construct and disassemble these tools. Or maybe item groups to get these tools into the game. I don't know yet.

Add science tools to their own file
Place science.json in the items/tools folder to reduce the burden of reading a single large json
The plural of apparatus is complicated.
Holy smokes, item groups is a giant mess
fix a brain fart
Mixed cuvettes and burettes up. It's been a while since I did labwork.
Add glass prisms and light detectors
These are for crafting the spectrophotometer.
Revert item groups for now.
The linting is annoying me.
