Bows and Crossbows for those who want to RP in Rembo style, or just anyone with will to survive in the world where animals can really kill =)
Actually we already have them in the game
We just disabled them for now because they don't work properly yet.
Explosives. TNT, C4, or just cans with gunpowder and nails.
Yup, this is planned. We already have the art for that, but we need to implement the actual explosion mechanics to add it into the game.
There will be three distinct types of explosives:
- grenades (you throw them as you'd expect)
- bombs (that go off after a certain time)
- mines (you hide them in the ground and someone blows up when stepping on it)
I suggest to reduce chance of Coal drop from stones and replace Charcoal in Steel recipe with Coal. It will make more sense cause from Coal you can make Coke(Chark) that is usually used in metallurgy. Or, you can give us ability to swap between Charcoal and Coal in recipes.
Quite sensible suggestion for sure. But I can't say anything yet as the balance is still very off at the moment. We will keep adding things into the game and balance as we move forward. But I can say for sure that the balance will change substantially.
After polishing crafting system and killing remaining bugs in current and future builds we will need to test weapons and armors in PvP and PvE.
I suggest you to make separate server ...
We planned something similar to what you described
But we will probably continue as is for now, at least until we implement all the weapons properly so they have the right feel and mechanics.
Although stats wise they are quite close to the final balance as this was based on a mathematical model.
Thank you for your suggestions!
