Tools/weapons overhaul

You must admit, wooden and stone tools are not very realistic:

Machete made of wood? Shovel with a wooden or stone blade? Rake with stone teeth? All the ludicrous tools and weapons pictured above are banished from the game in 2.2.

What replaces them is much simpler and much more realistic:

The stone axe

The early, universal tool. Jack of all trades. Equally good for digging, hacking, quarrying. But not very good. Better than bare hands, though. If you try to craft any of the original stone tools, this is what you will get instead. The crafting recipes are unchanged, so that the new users do not get too confused.

The wooden club

The simplest, easiest to make weapon. Better than wielding a stick. If you try to craft a wooden machete, this is what you will get.

 

The stone club

You’ve seen that one before. Slightly more advanced than the wooden club, it causes more damage, but requires stone. If you try to craft a stone machete, this is what you will get.

Stone tip arrow and stone spear are gone. But note that the wooden rake, wooden spear and wooden arrow are still there, because they are reasonably realistic:

And of course all the metal tool and weapon tiers are unchanged. This is what you want to possess. They are much better than the stone axe or the clubs.

I think this change not just increases realism. It makes the game more fun by increasing importance  of metal. Without metal, you remain essentially a glorified caveman.

Hope you will like it.

Here’s another little goodie or two coming in 2.2, check it out:

    I don’t know if this represents a problem … I never expected them to remove the tools of wood and stone … I think there should be several replacements in place instead of a universal weapon … I say … maybe I am wrong and it is better like this
    Sorry for my English…

      kaalus I think you should put what I have been talking about a long time ago, an option of having more than 18 colors in one world, because what good we can create countless colors and we can only use 18 per world. It would be really cool if you could put an option in which you could use up to 200 colors per world, which would make the color variation and decorations more realistic.

    So if doesn’t exist anymore a wooden counterpart for Axe/Pickaxe/Shovel and if we want to “mine” faster we need to directly craft a stone tool without making wooden tools first? Do we have to break stone with bare hands or am i missing something?
    Club and Spiked club replacing Wooden and Stone Machete is great! Oga Boga!

    I could understand the decision to remove Stone rake but, why removing Stone Spear and Stone Arrows? Weren’t primitive humans capable to craft simple stone spears?

    Nice precipitation particles

    • Posted December 1, 2019 at 22:07 | Permalink | Reply

      A stick is the most primitive tool, 50% better than bare hands at everything. You should mine the first stone block with a stick. Then you can make a stone axe.
      Why remove stone spear and arrow? I wanted to make metal more important. There’s still wooden spear and arrows, but to get a real boost, you need to find copper.

        So stone chunks will become useless now? (Unless you want to throw them)
        Anyway for realism I would have kept stone arrows. Maybe just a little weaker, if you want to increase the difference with the metals.

      • Posted December 2, 2019 at 02:42 | Permalink | Reply

        I think stone arrow and spear are fine. However, you could change the recipe for stone tipped arrows and spears.

      • Posted December 2, 2019 at 02:44 | Permalink | Reply

        I think removed stone and wooden tools should remain in Creative. Also, I don’t see the point of removing stone tipped spears and arrows. Although, stone spears could have the recipe modified.

    The stone ax will count as a shovel, Pickax, and ax, but I do not think that it will be a rake, there will be no stone rake in my opinion there will only be a wooden one then a copper or iron one.

    I kind of expected stone chunks to be used to craft the new weapons. Still, this looks interesting! (Wait, if you need cobblestone to craft the stone axe (you said the tool recipes are unchanged), how will you get cobblestone in the first place?

    I thinks it’s safe to say the big feature this update is online multiplayer. He has multiplayer working for split screen on SC and he used Ruthless Conquest as a Guinea pig for online multiplayer. I’m sure itll come to SC this update. Hence why he said it would change both survival and creative.

    In response to the post, I like to see that you’re considering difficulty for the game but beginning and end game difficulty seem pretty proportionally different. Itd be cool to see something that makes late game harder or at least give more advancements to fill it up with more to work for.
    No matter what I’ll be looking forward to it.

    Love the particle effects, much more realistic. Will there be puddles forming on the ground as well? Maybe just a texture change that happens to grass blocks when it is raining, and the texture reverts back to normal after some time once the rain stops. I think that would be very realistic and cool, even though it doesn’t “do” anything. Much more realistic than water disappearing in the ground instantly lol

      And have rain water any soil so you don’t have to make canals through your farm.

    Im personally a bit concerned about this change. I expected something more useful, but so far, this just seems like a handicap. Sure, not all wooden and stone tools that we has were realistic, but at least keep the ones that were. ie: stone spear and stone arrow. This is just my thoughts, and maybe things will seem less bad when more is revealed.

    Hey buddy, it’s been awhile. Great to see you back at it!

    Im just going to jump right off the bat and say ‘FISHING’ First thing I think of when living off the land trying to “survive” is catching fish. Great time filler easy to implement and rewarding. But I’m sure you are way ahead of me 😉

    Hope to hear more soon. Who knows I might even have a crack at Elswyr x7 🤔🤔

    I liked the idea but would need some modifications to get the idea closer to the reality of the game as for example: The origin of the characters? Answering this question if the chase came on and a sailboat and with clothes of cotton and leather would not be interesting place native peoples in nomades who have this technology that could teach it to the character. Because the story of the survivors goes on goes on as an ezilate or something. and the cavemen were nomads and did not stay in the same place. kaalus please read this review and reflect on what I said please. I have many ideas for this amazing game that you created I’m sorry for this English because I’m using google translator bay then send another message about the slots.

    You should make it so that when a player punches a block with their bare hands (with the exception of some blocks) they take small amounts of damage. This will encourage the player to use and make tools often.
