Greetings again! Nekochu here to tell you about something very important that is coming up in the next release. This is so important and will change your life so much, that if everything works as intended you won’t even notice it.
What am I talking about? Modular tools of course!
For this first stage of modular tools, we have revamped all the bronze age tools and weapons to work with modular crafting. You may notice that the bronze items look slightly different, but they are crafted and work exactly the same as the old tools you are used to.
You may ask, “How does this affect me?” Well, at first this shouldn’t affect you at all. All of the work in this release is behind the scenes and visually you won’t see the potential of modular tools.
Let’s talk about the future though; that is where this new system will really start to shine. Items that can act as the “head” of a tool can be swapped out to generate new tools and the stats of the produced item will be adjusted based on the components used.
Now you’re starting to see the bigger potential! Imagine a sword that incorporates the swiftness bonus from its handle and the extra damage stat from its blade! Or perhaps you want to use a unique head of a pick that you crafted on all your future pick crafts.
We’ve only scratched the surface of where we can go with this new system but for now it lies in wait under the surface of the bronze tools. The future will decide where it grows from there!
We are fixing a lot of bugs this week and hope to push a new update soon. In the meantime, check out the latest “In The Works” video for the artisan workbench and loom here.
