Elwood Posted March 21, 2018 Report Share Posted March 21, 2018 I was reading some discussions about armour and how it would not make sense to have diamond armour. I totally agree with not having unrealistic things like a diamond armour or pickaxe. I also dont want to see magical book enchantments like minecraft added but i think there is still room to add a type of mechanic to items to add improvement. Oftentimes in the past smiths would add engraving, encrust gems, add gold embossment to items to demonstrate this is no common sword. the adornments generally were used to demonstrate that "This is no common sword but it was custom built for a Lord". I would like to see a tool and armour enhancement/improvement mechanic where combining certain things with items could demonstrate good workmanship and result in some buffs like faster speed. How the mechanic could work, for example, is one could carve a handle from a bone and add a gemstone or gold inlay. Take any pick. combine with a carved bone handle and obtain a +1 speed boost with that pick. use the same base model for the pick but change the name of it. Not sure if the current API can modify the base attributes or name of an item that is hardcoded in the JSON config for an item. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
