  2. Client+: Cheat-free client-side chat commands (v0.2.0)

    It sounds like you put it in the right place. Does "client-main.txt" have a line something like the following in it? Loaded x mod classes (... ClientPlus.ClientPlus ...) If so, then exactly what command are you trying to use? ".online" and ".moon" (without quotes) are the only two commands. Does the game play a clanking sound when you get a chat message?
  3. Make Lanterns with Lead

    Please no. Bronze is the hardest (useful) metal to get in the game at this point. Glass? Sure. Bronze? No.
  4. Granite Rock requires Tool Tier 1 ( Stone to Break)

    Yea, it should write tier 2 (copper). Changed it now.
  5. Wood processing

    I would love more involving lumbering mechanics, just a simple "cut tree down, logs end up on the ground facing away from where the stump was (is?), then you have to individually cut up each log to collect it. There was also mention of other lumbering tools such as an adze for making canoes, it could also be used for making more primitive roughly hewn planks, perhaps you only get 1-2 per log and the recipes you can make with them is more restricted than normal logs.
  6. Making berry bushes less OP

    Making them take longer to produce would also help. Then maybe adding an extra time needed for the plant to recover from being moved. Perhaps when you replant it gets a few extra growth stages which double or triple the recovery time compared to just picking.
  7. Today
  8. Make Lanterns with Lead

    I was going to suggest that lanterns cost too much, but stopped myself thinking they shouldn't be too easy to make. Gating them behind bronze rather than simple copper is probably a good idea, while reducing the currently absurd ingot cost. Maybe the recipe should be Clear glass(or just clear quartz) Torch Bronze Bar Glass itself should be a rather more difficult thing to aquire, there has been mention of glass blowing so I'm sure later the recipe for things involving glass can be a bit more complex. Historically lead has been useful for tons of stuff, pewter specifically, but roof shingles, pipes, practically anything we currently make out of plastic might be made out of lead because of it's low casting temperature and malleability.
  9. Client+: Cheat-free client-side chat commands (v0.2.0)

    Not working for me. It just says Command not found. Question, should I add to the install folder or to the AppData folder? I added it to the Install folder where I also have the creative and survival files.
  10. CarryCapacity

    I updated the mod to version 0.2.0, making it a little bit more usable. Changes are: Added a delay to picking up and placing down blocks (can vary per block). You now need to hold right click for half a second to pick up a chest (0.2s for basket). Fixed rotation and rendering misbehaving. Block is placed upon death.
  11. Make Lanterns with Lead

    Also, OCD too strong, CAN'T RESIST, have to mine Galene. What to do with all this Lead?
  12. Make Lanterns with Lead

    You right in a sense although a Rich lead/copper alloy called Molybdochalkos used to make candle holders and other simple utensils.
  13. Make Lanterns with Lead

    I'm not sure I follow. That's not really historical as far as I'm aware. Unless you mean as solder? Lead would be great for bullets if we ever get slings or guns, quenching of some metals in special recipes, babbitt for machinery, and batteries if we ever go steampunk. Also probably alchemy. I think lanterns would be better as brass or bronze, and could have different tiers that cast more light with the incorporation of silver and glass, which would tech them up a bit. As opposed to lead which is stone-age, really.
  14. Helping The Old Player

    Ya, the specific zinc in granite case has been brought up before, and I think it was pretty much said it was an intended 'challenge' at the time, but I'll just second this sentiment. I don't think camouflage ore is really the kind of challenge most players are interested in.
  15. Make Lanterns with Lead

    Yeah, I see lead nuggets on the ground sometimes, and don't even bother with them since they aren't good for anything. If they could be used for lanterns I would at least look twice
  16. Is that a mistake? As much as I know we do not have any stone tool that can mine. maybe it should say Copper.
  17. Make Lanterns with Lead

    It would be a very good use for a metal that right now is just wasted.
  18. Helping The Old Player

    Even though there are a lot of young players, there are also a lot of old guys that play VS. I usually only need glasses for reading and do not wear them to play my games. I Noticed that some of the ores are really hard to see, depending on the rock. One example is Zinc on Granite. Would it be possible to make the ores more visible? I am pretty sure not to be alone in this.
  19. Yesterday
  20. How much should Vintage Story cost?

    I also voted for the 10E, mainly because I think the game even though is playable lacks some basic features. I like the game, I believe in the project enough to buy it and support it. I just think the comparisons are inevitable and most of the player base already own Minecraft, so in their mind, the question is: "Why should I pay money for a Minecraft like game, if I can just download a mod for free?" Like I said, not my question, but I believe it would be for many people.
  21. Making berry bushes less OP

    I think seasonal harvest would be the way to go. Making things overly complex without needing to just adds unnecessary work for the developers.
  22. Making berry bushes less OP

    I guess the main question is how far are we from a calendar year That would solve many food issues and at the same time create a lot of others.
  23. How much should Vintage Story cost?

    A modest price increase to 10E for now, with stepped increases to 16E for each large increase in content. When finished, to me it would be worth 20E easily. The fact that it is moddable makes it worth more, in my opinion than a lot of games by big studios.
  24. Making berry bushes less OP

    Saw there was some discussion of berry bushes and their OP-ness on the discord. Wanted to post a suggestion for making berry bushes less OP. Basically the suggestion is that to move a berry bush, you have make a linen sack. This sack allows you to transport one bush. It's basically like the burlap sack in a ball-and-burlap tree. The mechanic could be holding the sack, having dirt and shovel in your hotbar, and right clicking on the bush. The sack and dirt are used up, and the player gains a B&B berry bush. The shovel loses some durability. You then right click with this B&B bush to plant it. You do not get the sack or dirt back, and hopefully you placed right because you'll have to use a new sack to move it again. This places a fairly steep cost on moving berry bushes. Of course, it could also be made that bushes only produce at a certain time of year, once the game has a calendar year with seasons and such. That would also greatly reduce their OP-ness.
  25. How much should Vintage Story cost?

    I've voted on 10 Euro's. (I think in Euro's not dollars, sorry). I don't think 10 Euro's will scare off enough people and when you want to raise it later on, you don't have to pass the magic '10 bucks' barrier. It's easier to price up from 10 then from 8. That been said, I strongly believe that the opinions of Stroam and Copygirl are valid. I'm no marketing expert, and I believe this game is worth more then 10 Euro's, but keeping it very accessible early on might be the right way to go.
  26. Client+: Cheat-free client-side chat commands (v0.2.0)

    Added chat message received alerts, this feature needs 1.5.1.
  27. sharpening, weapon damage, material

    Yah rocks don't have the range for more than short distances I feel but hey, you always have a glut of rocks. I feel like his research the gambeson is more extensive than my own and that I've seen video tests that show it is more effective than leather armor. That being said I've seen Japanese wooden armor work better than leather armor. Leather definitely stops the blade from going deeper than it would on an unarmored opponent, does resist stabbing, and is horrible against slashing. The key for any armor is layers. @redram Yes silk armor can funny enough stop very early firearms. Maybe fabrics and armor need their own own crafting interfaces where you can layer different fabrics together and add them to different parts of the armor that affect the defense, mobility and look of the armor. As opposed to a selection of armors you can make like in Minecraft.
