Slaughter Mode

Postby DaniAngione » Thu Jan 25, 2018 3:01 am

If slaughtering is too fast... accidents happen. Wrong animals are killed, etc...

If slaughtering is too slow (as it is)... culling the herd is one of the most boring activities in the game.

So here is my suggestion: Slaughter Mode!
When in "slaughter mode", you slaughter animals very, very fast. (at least twice as fast - it's currently too slow)

Here are three possible ways/suggestions for Slaughter Mode to work:

- A new Toggle. Just activate it to have faster slaughtering.
- Based on player pattern. Slaughter mode could be a "buff" that gets activated after slaughtering (for example) 3 animals in a short window of time (like 5 minutes). The game would "Notice" you're working on culling animals and you'd get the buff, making slaughtering the next animals way faster.
- Based on tool. Possibly the butcher's knife - if you're using one, slaughtering is accelerated.

Edit:
One extra possibility:

- Hearth Magic, gives you a temporary "blessing" (buff) to slaughter animals faster. Could have a sacrificial theme to it. Preferably not so expensive.

Sounds really elaborate just to kill animals. Why not just a new tool? Hell, I'd love to see the sledgehammer given a secondary function of instantly killing animals, just like in the good ol days.

Tbh I thought the butchers cleaver already let you murderize baby veal faster.

Just saying, would be cool also something like URW, where you can choose where to aim with your weapon to slaughter it.
At the neck would be faster but ... "chance to lose something", at the throat slower but better results, and so on ...

We could get slaughter mode but not for the purpose of animal culling ¦]

Wait, butcher cleaver accelerates animal slaughtering?

I thought it only accelerated butchering.

EDIT:
I just tested and no, it doesn't accelerate animal slaughtering.

People, do not confuse slaughtering with butchering; this request is about faster slaughtering :D

Yeah prolly got too much excited with quick butchering, sorry, I punch my chest.

By the way, I would make it so that if You brand animal with your own iron branding, You should be able to put down that animal 50% faster. It's like You invest a little time to brand them (is anybody even doing it on regular basis?) and get actually something from it.

Exsanguination knife? Might be tool overload at this point though, I think the slaughter time is just simply too long.

Could make the cleaver speed it up.
