Hello there! Let me preface this by saying that I have not played Vintage Story at the time of this post - only watched let's plays of it on YouTube. I do plan on purchasing the game when I have the chance, as I think this game does have the potential to be a worthy competitor to Minecraft, and I loved the TerraFirmaCraft mod for said game. Alright, I'm not totally certain if this has been ever discussed on the forums before (I've used the search feature and nothing that is of any certain relevance to this thread's title showed up, and my look into the wiki did not yield any useful result either), but in my let's play viewings I've noticed there's a distinct lack of a stone anvil. TerraFirmaCraft required the player to acquire a stone anvil of a particular type (last I remember the stone type had to be igneous, subtype didn't matter) and this anvil was required if the player wanted to progress beyond the copper era. Now here in Vintage Story, it seems that one can craft an anvil mold and cast a metal one instead, thereby bypassing the need for a stone anvil entirely. I was wondering if you, the developers, had considered adding in a stone anvil. Now I'm not quite sure if tiered anvils exist in Vintage Story a la TerraFirmaCraft's system - and I don't want to write up any further details concerning potential balance issues with the existence of a stone anvil in-game relative to the metal anvils because I don't know enough about Vintage Story's smithing system - but at the very least, having the option to use certain stone types as makeshift anvils would be nice. There does seem to be historical precedent for this in the real world, so for authenticity's sake at least, without knowing why stone anvils aren't in the game at the time of this post (if there is precedent for this), I think stone anvils would be a fine addition to Vintage Story. That being said, I would like to hear your thoughts on the hypothetical addition of a stone anvil in the game and if it is viable. Thank you for reading this post, -Sda.
