First off I was thinking when I saw many of the clothing, armors and weapons you could have; and now the new faction with their own clothing style. It would be nice to be able to display said clothing on a mannequin or armor stand of some kind. Thinking the same for various equipment there are as well.
What I had imaged in my head was having both an armor stand & mannequin. Each serves the purpose separately.
This would be there to display clothing and light armor. Possibly the other armor as well, unsure on that, but at least the first portion as it is a tailor’s job usually.
Most likely made at the tailor with wood. Was thinking the potter originally, as in a cast that you attach to wood that would form the main body on a wooden stand of some kind. Normally what you would see at a tailor to display or fit fabric over and do the final touches.
This would be one for the metal armor, and therefore possibly made at one of the smith’s workplaces. Simple wooden post with brackets made of metal to hold in place. Also wold be able to hold a weapon and shield on display as being almost an upgrade to what the mannequin is.
Originally had in mind maybe the woodworking for this, but had to go with that, as I could see both factions using it; although more likely the ascendance due to having an honor display per say. Then again raiya’s children could be having it at a shop to display merchandise.
Although both is mainly meant for extra decor to add atmosphere to the professions, they do have differences mentioned above.
The way I was thinking it probably could work, if possible, is the item in question is made and placed. Then when you click on it, it would bring up storage filtering what could go onto it. This from what every is in storage, similar to when you place an object, just only valid items showing. Once selection is made, a hearthling will get that item from storage and put on display at that specific mannequin/armor stand.
So in a way it would hold 2 states I guess… Empty and selected item. Empty would be obvious. The selected item would be as above, showing the item over the mannequin/armor stand.
To display Miscellaneous items of value; whether it is a weapon, tool, or your favorite plushie. I would think food would be out of this one, since that in a way wouldn’t make sense hanging food on the wall. I was going for more of the special items and equipment to be displayed.
Would think it would work the same way I described for the other two types of displays, if possible.
Unsure where this would be made, but possibly at the carpenter.
similar to the above, but only for weapons or tools. Can act like storage, but only for a small amount, and if possible showing how many is on the rack. I’d imagine maybe 3-4 maybe being max. If not then in the very least showing a full rack of that specific weapon.
This one being made also at the smith.
It is pretty much a simple suggestion that I thought might be possible, if items can be displayed over another item. Just seemed to be missing from a tailors shop or smith’s forge, or hunters cabin. Adding a bit of style to each profession, or extra to give the look beyond the wooden signs and work benches.
If any of this is possible maybe even a display case from the potter that could show off an item similar to what you would see I guess in a museum or jewelry store; yet made of clay and a bit of glass that allows viewing.
Thanks for reading, and hope the idea is sound enough.
