Thoughts on the further development of Haven & Hearth? Feel free to opine!

Weapon & Tools stockpile.

Postby maze » Sat Nov 11, 2017 5:50 pm

Tool sticking out of the ground. the easiest quickest route to doing this would be using stockpiles code.
Tool's like shovels/pickaxes/swords/ect having a stockpile of 1/1. just to place a shovel/tool in the ground somewhere.
no hotbox + item collide, as there would be no point.

-----

IE:
Stockpile a shovel.
1/1
the shove sticks out of the ground.

-----

This would make a few things around the city life easyer.
some stock piles could possibly go up in higher numbers for like swords, buckets, shields.
I've made this idea once before just for swords...but honestly should be expanded to all tools.

I think swords should also be stick-able into a maximum sized boulder, for larpy reasons...

I somewhat like the idea. Or at least agree that tools could/should be able to, more or less, be "left" around without despawning.
Not sure if stockpiles are the best options, however.

Perhaps really cheap (few blocks/boards?) buildable "Racks" could sort this out? Instead of being a proper container, racks could display the tools on them and you would retrieve the tool by right clicking it - just like a torch on a torch post.
And a single rack could hold perhaps up to 4 items.

I'd love to have spear racks, for example - even if just decoratively :3

Only someone with at least twice the strength of the one that sticked it can retrieve the sword :D

And only to be pulled out by those with greater str than that who set it there.

Was thinking more on the lines of a shovel in the ground, because I was flattening a random field, but needed to do something.
So I ended up having to cutdown a tree and make create to hold my tools.

So I just thought it would be a neat idea to just stick tools into the ground without them despawning.
Swords would be the fun one...honestly should have some easter eggs thrown into it xD

How about:

Soil stockpile -> Shovel
Tree stump -> Axes
Stones -> Swords
Stone/Ore Stockpile -> Pickaxe
Anvil -> Hammer
Hitching post -> Rope

I have made a note of a tool stockpile myself. Not entirely opposed to the idea.
