WeaponPack- New Weapons, shields and bows.

Recommended Posts

The weaponpack mods are a series of individual mods focusing on their own individual section of combat- melee, ranged, defense. The mods attempt to overhaul and/or improve existing mechanics in the game without straying too far from the vanilla style by offering modded weapons that are slightly better than their vanilla counterparts, this keeps vanilla things untouched most of the time and lets me have a lot more freedom with what I can do with the additions.
Heres my patreon if you'd like to support me: Patreon

Some important info:

Spoiler

Vanilla Changes-

WeaponpackAlpha does not change any vanilla items or values

WeaponpackBeta disables recipes for the vanilla shields since they are functionally obsolete, does not remove them though. Changes vanilla armor textures slightly

WeaponpackGamma re-works all arrow and bow damage, flips the bowyer requirement from being able to make re-curves to instead make longbows, re-curves are now the all-class ranged weapon type, longbow is now exclusive to bowyers. Changes vanilla recipes for bows, and currently overwrites the base game json for arrow items and entities. The mod is incompatible with bullseye right now, will attempt to make them compatible in the future.

Balancing(PVP)-

WeaponpackAlpha should be balanced enough for use in PVP.

Currently, due to the massive difference between enemy damage scaling compared to player damage scaling it is impossible to balance the BETA pack for both PVP and PVE, as such the WeaponpackBeta is not recommended for use in PVP servers due to this. A solution to this would require a complete re-balance of health and damage across the game to work with both, or a complete rework of the shield system.

WeaponpackGamma makes huge buffs to ranged weapons, increasing their damage a lot. While still having drawbacks they may be considered very strong in PVP, though this is heavily based off of the armor/lack of armor you are using in combat. Use in PVP settings at your own discretion.

 

WeaponPackAlpha:

Spoiler

 

WeaponPack alpha currently adds 9 new weapon types with metal variants.

Also changes swing sound/throwing sound with a "swoosh" rather than the old "grunt". I feel like it makes the experimental instrument voices option feel more consistent.

Weapons are gated to certain metals due to their material limits which adds an interesting dynamic to progressing though the ages. For example the khopesh can only be cast in a clay mold and is a starter weapon, as such its not able to be made from iron+ metals. Then you progress to the better gladius when you have an anvil, and the rest of the mod tries to follow this pattern.

Weapons:

Details-

Macuahuitl:

macth23.png.e370460c24b57c6cf3e5799ccadbb1d8.png

The Macuahuitl is not only hard to spell it also packs quite the punch! This Aztec club weapon can be crafted traditionally from obsidian or with flint. The Macuahuitl has almost metal-like damage due to its extremely sharp teeth, they are brittle however so its durability is quite low. The obsidian version offers more damage at the cost of durability, and the flint version is the other way around.

Khopesh:

kho23.png.d6f6d735ef486fda4b05ec99924b7937.png

This Egyptian sickle-sword can only be cast from copper ore bronze, its stats reflect its simplicity to craft. Has an above average wood/plant mining speed.

Gladius:

glad34.thumb.png.090207265b739ec5b1cbc3a4c791fa89.png

Relive the past with this roman gladius, It can only be forged on an anvil in copper/bronze. Offers better stats than the khopesh because it needs an anvil.

Machete:

match23.png.230a8b104d480ed679fbce5c38a713c5.png

The machete can be forged out of any tool metal, it is equal parts weapon and tool. While offering lower damage its ability to shred through wood and plants gives it a unique home in dense jungles.

Partisan:

spher.png.74df04b47a10d41b14af707e2b15fdbe.png

This polearm is un-throwable to its spear counterpart, it offers superior range and striking damage, its damage is lower than a thrown spear however. It can be made of any tool metal.

Halberd:

hakejf.thumb.png.5a9a73457480776ebec5730d7f19e8db.png

This polearm must be made of high-end materials, its more expensive to forge (2 ingots), and offers less range but more damage compared to a heavy spear.

Arming sword:

lonfgs.thumb.png.e4c46f7d9eb1f99e491c0732bdabed2e.png

Now this is a sword! Must be made of high-end materials. This sword offers good range, damage and durability, costs 2 ingots to forge.

1.15 weapons:

weapons.thumb.png.0398389efd66c5fb938fa93b9c10150b.png

Added the Katar- a very short range weapon capable of insane amounts of damage, it's a hit and run weapon so the risk of getting hit is high but that risk rewards you with up to 16 damage at the steel tier meaning it can one-shot surface drifters! Not all is crazy though as they suffer from not only that tiny range but also in their durability, it's also hindered by a slow attack speed like the spear.

Added the Throwing-Spear- This spear is meant for throwing, meaning it does even more damage when tossed than the standard spears double damage, its also able to fly a bit farther. Throwing spears can be made from every tool metal and in primitive versions with flint or obsidian. You must forge metal spear heads on an anvil but each ingot will give you 128 spears in total which is important because they are a single-use item meaning they will break on impact and cant be retrieved. They do less damage and have less range when used as a direct weapon, they stack to (256) and 128 spears will cost = 1 ingot, 8 sticks, 8 feathers.

 

WeaponPackBeta:

Spoiler

 

Weaponpack beta adds new shields available in all tool metals, it also re-works shield protection, and changes recipes for the crude and blackguard shield.

shield2.thumb.png.8c24efb59c3e6a3dc4e72e4998169d95.png

All metal shields have a 100% chance to actively block, and a slightly increased chance to passively block. The crude wooden has a 90% chance and the crude bone has a 95% chance. Flat damage reduction has been increased for the metal shields and in general has been completely re-worked around the damage drifters deal.

From left to right is the new path of shield progression, you start with a crude wooden shield made from firewood and rope, you can add bones to improve it slightly, then when you get metal plates you can make metal-wood shields. Iron+ shields have the ability to use colored fabric instead of leather to add patterns to them, currently only has one pattern and two colors right now.

Blackguard shield has a reworked recipe, and the vanilla generic metal shields have had their crafting recipe disabled.

Also modifies armor textures slightly- the blackguard and forlorn set have had a misplaced texture on the right side of their helmet that I removed to fix it. Also I changed helmets to have a much darker visor hole, this is especially apparent on the iron armor set, essentially fixing the misaligned or strangely placed visor holes in plate armors:

WeaponPackGamma:

Spoiler

 

Weaponpack gamma reworks bows, arrow damage has been increased and bow damage has been slightly increased too. Adds metal bows and two new arrow types. currently incompatible with the bullseye mod

bosdf2.thumb.png.b880a5c3a82cc4198580474e186f8821.png

Reworks bow progression- crude bow and arrows now are available to all classes, bowyers instead have access to a long-crude bow that is better than the standard crude bow. Also changed re-curve bows to the all class bow, and now the longbow is the bowyer trait exclusive.

Limb crafting has had a QOL pass, now needs some resin to make the staffs, they cure now instead of dry, and the time has been reduced from 144 hours to just 72. Also changes recipes of the re-curve and longbow.

You can now upgrade your bow with bronze+ metals, this improves their damage, and durability and are available up to steel in both long and re-curve variants.

Bows now have two new sounds that are much less harsh on the ears, new shooting sound, and a new arrow impact sound. Also, every arrow now shows their break chances in the description.

Two new arrow types-

Normal/vanilla arrow: Buffed damage compared to vanilla numbers, have a slightly larger hit-box, now only take 3 ingots to make the increased stack size of 72 arrows, but are otherwise unchanged. Best all-rounder arrow.

These new arrows can only be made from metals on the anvil and don't have crude versions-

Bodkin arrow: A small fast-flying arrow that has virtually no drop and deals extra damage, takes 3 ingots full stack of 96. However, the arrows hit-box is much smaller than the standard arrow, and the break chances of these are much higher.

Broadhead arrow: A large and heavy arrow that has a huge hit-box making things much easier to hit, and their heavy design make them far less prone to breaking, takes 3 ingots for a full stack of 48. The heavy design also makes this arrow drop out of the air much faster, so the arrows don't fly far and you need to aim much higher than your target, and since it flies slower it deals slightly less damage than the standard arrow.

I think the metal texture on the meteoric halberd's messed up? Same with the meteoric longblade. But I'm in 1.13, so...

Yeah that metal does not exist in 1.13, might also break recipes in 1.13 since the anvil crafting area was increased. Not really planning a back port though since 1.14 is so close to release and the mod is balanced around the new 1.14 metals.

I'm no modder but I can edit stuff and I've edited my pine tree files to produce resin 15% of the time instead of 1-2% to compensate for this mods changes.

The files for the trees are in Vintagestory\assets\survival\worldgen\treegen and the lines are         

otherLogBlockCode: "log-resin-pine-ud",
otherLogChance: 0.01,

like I stated though I only know how to make these changes for myself and can't produce a mod, perhaps I'll learn to make a more resin producing mod

I think we need to change the mechanics of the grown pine trees so that they can spawn rubber blocks.

We need a tap to stab into player planted trees trunks so we can farm resin.

I got that out fast since I already had the work done for another mod, but now I've included in this post the more resin mod, this mod just lets you craft resin from a knife and a pine log in the crafting grid, just a temporary workaround for now. Hope that helps with the resin requirement, I appreciate any feedback.

Hey, I've run into a mild issue. I've got Primitive Survival installed and I can only make stakes, not small hafts. Could you change the recipe a little bit so it's compatible?

Okay I've made some changes to the recipes, mainly that the tool haft recipes are not shapeless anymore this should hopefully fix your issue if it still does not work please let me know. Also I've made some balance changes to the haft recipes so some should output more and they also have alternate recipes when you get a saw. Merged more-resin into the main mod so now you can craft pine logs into resin with a knife, the recipe is shapeless so you can avoid the pan/club recipe.

Billhooks could be a neat addition.

Also does this mod change the whole crafting grid to 4x4?

No, I was just demonstrating the recipes in a chest. The crafting grid is still 3x3.

A bone billhook could be a nice addition for earlygame weapons, that's were I think there are too few weapons currently.

Thanks for the mod, definitely prefer your model of the longblade to the one I've seen in so many videos on Youtube!

Another weapon you might consider is a composite bow (recipe to include bone, resin and other such things to make the bow part then combine with the appropriate flax or rope to make a string perhaps)?

Made some huge QOL tweaks in the 1.0.2 version, in addition to fixing the scythe recipe now flint/stone versions of tools no longer require the new haft items, you just use sticks like normal, you still need rope though witch can be gotten from cattails, twine, or vines. Now only the metal tools will need hafts, and you can also still use them to craft stone tools. Hopefully this makes the early-game more enjoyable, also hammers and saws were tweaked to use sticks and normal sized hafts because it was logical.

Neat mod, adds some variety to my armory.
I suggest you to add some blunt weaponry, like different kinds of maces, flaces, warhammers.
It would be cool too, if you add more combined weapons (poleaxes, picks, more warhammers) and ability to change their types of attacks. Like, switch tier and amount of damage depending on which part of the weapon you use for attack.
And, of course, more axes. Big, small, combined and etc.

P.s. In my opinion, heavy spear should be called pike. Idk, maybe you have way more different weapon classification than i thought, but i never heard about heavy spears, long spear always called pike, lance (if used by a cavalry) or simply spear.

Here's another quick update, 1.0.4.

Added Russian translations thanks to ZigTheHedge!

Re-enabled long blade recipes but left all thier stats untouched, buffed the damage of early game weapons, now vanilla long blades overall preform worse than any weaponpack weapons of that tier, this is a less intrusive workaround for re-balancing the whole combat system by encouraging use of the new weapons and discouraging use of the vanilla one.

Very good mod, reminds me of some of the old TFC Additions, but I have some ideas for new weapons, for example, crossbow with any-metallic bolts, longaxe with additional damage to armor, warhammer or morgenstern which ignores armor completely, but do not have a lot of damage, and a chain-mace, with damage increasing more and more while player "spins" it, holding LMB

The propick recipe is vanilla and does not use ropes or handles.

An early recipe for the large handle, which is used to make copper spears, conflicts with the recipe for the regular tool handle.

You can craft the standard handles with 1 resin and over 2 sticks in a single slot, to make the large one you just need the 4 across two slots and the resin, its a bit confusing and I really need to redo the whole thing.

I do like this mod and the heavy spear has become one of my favorite weapons, however, I do not like how it has altered the recipe for stone tools.  Several times now I've been out on a gathering trip and broke my copper shovel or axe, went to make a flint one and have no rope or tool hafts and nothing around for it to make one or no inventory space to do so.  Then I have to just trot on bake home.  I also don't like wasting the resources of rope and resin on stone tools that break in nothing flat.  I think that you should reconsider modifying the basic tools and spears.
