    Looks nice! Going to try it out.

    Just notice something about aegisalt weapons tho, even if it's green-colored, it doesn't look too fitting as poison elemental... since electricity is already taken by violium, how about a damage boost instead? As Aegisalt Bow kinda does that.

    Hi, thanks! I did my best to give it a nice style!

    Hmm... that is a good point.... I will look in to changing that!
    Thank you for the feedback!

    Also you might want to give the some of weapons status effect perhaps? For a more interesting gameplay. Maybe a huge damage weapon that slows you down. Or weapon that gives energy regen. Or blood-sucking weapon (heals you in every hit), would fit for Florans. There's a snippet that you could take a look here (scroll to the bottom) http://community.playstarbound.com/threads/weapons-with-user-status-effects.123070/

    Thank you for your suggestions!

    Hiya ImHereForTheMods, I don't know if you're already aware of this method or not, but this "health bar" modder's resource might be useful for some interesting new weapon types.

    I'll look into it, but I don't believe it is racially based.

  16. ImHereForTheMods

    ImHereForTheMods Scruffy Nerf-Herder

    No treasure pool, didn't know how to do that. All done by crafting.

    Liking the look of this, nice touch giving the racial weapons elemental effects so they got a use beyond nostalgia over the current generation of crafted weapons :3

    In case in the future you want to add the weapons to treasure pools (so it will appear in treasure chests), it's not too difficult. You can find the relevant files and patch them. So for example you can make a common.treasurepools.patch (in /treasure/ directory) that have this

    Code:
    [
    {
        "op" : "add",
        "path" : "/uniqueWeapon/2/1/pool/-",
        "value" : { "weight": 1, "item": "aviantier6axe" }
    }
    ]
    common.treasurepools is a treasure pool for weapons (both unique and randomly generated) and items such as tech card, manipulator module, etc. In common.treasurepools you can find pools for unique weapons:


    "uniqueWeapon" : [
    [0, {
    "pool" : [
    // level 2 uniques
    {"weight" : 1.0, "item" : "boomerang"},
    {"weight" : 1.0, "item" : "chakram"},
    {"weight" : 1.0, "item" : "ropewhip"},
    {"weight" : 1.5, "item" : "gauntlet"},
    {"weight" : 1.0, "item" : "flamethrower"},
    {"weight" : 1.0, "item" : "poisonbow"},
    {"weight" : 1.0, "item" : "pollenpump"}
    ]
    }],
    [2.9, {
    "pool" : [
    // include a chance for these since they're needed for later upgrades
    {"weight" : 0.5, "item" : "boomerang"},
    {"weight" : 0.5, "item" : "chakram"},
    {"weight" : 0.75, "item" : "gauntlet"},

    // level 4 uniques
    {"weight" : 1.0, "item" : "vinewhip"},
    {"weight" : 1.0, "item" : "wormgun"},
    {"weight" : 1.0, "item" : "wormerang"},
    {"weight" : 1.0, "item" : "gristlegun"},
    {"weight" : 1.0, "item" : "soulseeker"},
    {"weight" : 1.0, "item" : "electricrailgun"},
    {"weight" : 1.0, "item" : "timepierce"},
    {"weight" : 1.0, "item" : "eyesword"},
    {"weight" : 1.0, "item" : "intestinewhip"},
    {"weight" : 0.2, "item" : "gnomegun"}
    ]
    }],
    [4.9, {
    "pool" : [
    // level 6 uniques
    {"weight" : 1.0, "item" : "supernovaglove"},
    {"weight" : 1.0, "item" : "astrosabredeluxe"},
    {"weight" : 1.0, "item" : "energywhip"},
    {"weight" : 1.0, "item" : "teslastaff"},
    {"weight" : 1.0, "item" : "magnorbs"},
    {"weight" : 1.0, "item" : "tentaclegun"},
    {"weight" : 1.0, "item" : "exmachina"},
    {"weight" : 1.0, "item" : "energypickaxe"},
    {"weight" : 1.0, "item" : "evileye"},
    {"weight" : 1.0, "item" : "remotegrenadelauncher"},
    {"weight" : 1.0, "item" : "doomcannon"}
    ]
    }]
    ],


    You can use the existing pool so it will blend into the game seamlessly. Alternatively, you can make new pools for racial weapons inside the uniqueWeapon pool. So your common.treasurepools.patch would look like this instead,

    Code:
    [
    {
        "op" : "add",
        "path" : "/uniqueWeapon/-",
        "value" :
            [6.9, {
             "pool" : [
                // level 8 uniques
                {"weight" : 1.0, "item" : "apextier8axe"},
                {"weight" : 1.0, "item" : "apextier8broadswords"},
                {"weight" : 1.0, "item" : "apextier8daggers"},
                {"weight" : 1.0, "item" : "florantier8axe"},
                {"weight" : 1.0, "item" : "florantier8broadswords"},
                {"weight" : 1.0, "item" : "florantier8daggers"}
                // etc
             ]
            }]
    }
    ]

    Hmm, seems like an interesting idea.Thanks for the info.
    However, I'm not sure if having a treasure pool would really suit the play-style of this mod.
    Generally, my idea with the mod is that, as you go along, and craft tier 1, you unlock tiered two, and it's really a tiered progression of the weapons. In which, of course, as you go along, they get more powerful. The whole idea really being that you are improving your weapon.
    Now, if you were to just find a tier, let's say 4 avian axe in a chest somewhere, when you had a tier 2 avian axe, it's just a jump in the system, and doesn't really flow as nice.
    Also, you'd probably end up with a lot of duplicates.

    I feel that this way, you get what you want, in a logical progression, so long as you have the neccessary ingredients. Also I believe that having ingredients really promotes exploration as much as a pool.
    Perhaps there isn't the same "whoa" effect when crafting one as finding one, but, you still end up with the same thing in the end, and I just feel it flows better this way.
    There is however the feeling of going out, and looking for the crafting materials, and working to eventually get the weapons, which I believe would instill a sense of accomplishment, which may be equivalent.

    Perhaps with the staves though, a treasure pool may be more realistic.

    I am willing to listen to thoughts on this though, and maybe make changes.

    Thanks for you interest in the mod.
