BRACE YOURSELF FOR A LONG POST
I just came up with a unique suggestion.
My suggestion is to customize your settlers.
You could do this by making clothing and armor for your settlers.
BASICS OF CLOTHING
There are four types of cloting: shoes/boots, pants/shorts, shirts/jackets, and hats. To make clothing, you would need a Tailor class. He will make the type of clothing that you tell him to do. The Tailor(s) would also need a Tailor’s Bench.To make a Tailor’s Bench, you would need X wood and Y linen. You could make clothing out of four main materials: linen, leather,and wool. Oh and one more thing. You need three (Clothing Material) to make one pair of shoes/boots, five (Clothing-Material) to make a pair of pants, four (Clothing Material) to make one shirt, and three (Clothing-Material) to make a hat.
SPECIAL THINGS (CLOTHING)
Clothing can also do a few special things as well. For example, wool clothing can help your settlers stand the cold wheather, or shoes/boots can help your settlers run faster. Also, each type of clothing has it’s own specific property. For example: the leather boots make you run the fastest, but the wool boots are more cold resistant than the leather boots.
You could also dye clothing to make the clothing more appelling to the eye. To make dye, you would need a specific colored flower or colored ore. You would also need one bucket of water. The formula for this is: one flower/ore + one bucket of water = three dyes. For example, if I got a red flower and combined it with a bucket of water, I would get three red dyes. Oh and one more thing. To make dyes, you would need to make a Dye Station. To make a Dye Station, you would need four iron, and one wood.
COMBINING DYES WITH CLOTHING
To combine dyes with cloting you would need to put the clothing and dye of your preference into the Tailor Bench. The formula for this is: One Shirt + One Cyan Dye = One Cyan Shirt.
BASICS OF ARMOR
There are, just like clothing, 4 types of armor. The armor types are just like the clothing types. To make armor, you need a Blacksmith class. He will make the type of armor you tell him to do. To make armor, you would need a forge. You could make armor out of six types of materials; linen, leather, iron, steel, and gold. Each material is stronger than the last, and each material has deferent perks. You need three (Clothing Material) to make one pair of shoes/boots, five (Clothing-Material) to make a pair of pants, four (Clothing Material) to make one shirt, and three (Clothing-Material) to make a helmet. Oh and one more thing: you can’t dye armor.
This idea won’t work in-game if Tailors, Tailor’s Benches, Linen. Leather, Wool, Colored Flowers, Colored Ores, Buckets, Dye Stations, Iron, Blacksmithes, Forges, steel, and gold aren’t added into the game first. If for any reason these items aren’t added, there could be a substitute for the item.
Photo: Since I am nice, I will provide a visual-aid that will show what I want armor to look like.
Anyways, that was my suggestion. I hope you liked it. If you have an opinion about my idea, please reply in the comments below. Thank you for your time.
