Hey guys, it’s John (@x_nekochu_x) and I have some game design news!
Today we’re going to take a look at some of the new tables and items that can be crafted. As the game progresses, the seed will need new workstations to advance his crafts and make better stuff. With this in mind we have created two new workstations for the seed to build, the artisan workbench and the loom.
The artisan workbench is a multi-purpose station that allows the seed to work with leather, jewelry and advanced methods of assembly. It is one of our first table upgrades. This means that by adding an upgrade to an existing table, you can add more crafting options to that table. By upgrading the crude workbench, the seed will still be able to craft all of the previous recipes, and it will also open up new recipes specific to the upgraded workbench.
The second new workstation is the loom. The loom is the seed’s first foray into making clothes that are more than just bamboo shafts and leaves! With the loom, the seed can begin to weave textiles from other materials to create patches that can be used in making clothes and other linen products. We are almost done with the concept and you should see the design next week!
These two new workstations also work together as several of the new crafts are created at one and then assembled at the other. For example, linen textiles can be created at the loom and then used in assembling an outfit at the artisan workbench with some leather accents. Likewise leather patches may be refined at the artisan workbench and then weaved into a pattern with other fabrics at the loom.
So let’s take a look at some of the new resources and crafted items we can expect to see with these new tables.
Leather patches and linen textiles. These crucial components are for a lot of new crafts and will be used in clothes, armor pieces and in the future, crafting a saddle for mounts.
Bronze buckles and plates. These items are crafted using the casting method that we have had at the stone furnace but with the new artisan workbench, they can be assembled with other resources to create new elements.
We are also working on a new set of clothes for the teen seed, complete with a new shirt, breeches, tunic and shoulder pads. @TheCamboRambo will share the 3D models soon as we have them done.
There are so many new recipes to discover and new gameplay systems coming soon! Our mount system is planned but will not be ready for our next update. We’ll talk more about mounts and how to use your new tack items in a future blog post. Until then, happy crafting!
