Name your weapon


#1

You should be able to name weapons and armor… Like i want to name my practice sword:

Ultimate practicesword of powerful powerfulness of sushi man power!

Name your weapons, thats it… WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO SAY!!!


#2

well… we’ll be able to name our settlement and our units (I believe)… if its not “baked in”, i’m sure we can mod in a way to name the weapons and armor we can equip as well… :+1:

Well, you will be able to change the names, looks and attribute of all in-game items rather easy. By adjusting the related .json-files you could change values for a group of weapons (all entities of one specific weapon). If you want to have an additional, unique weapon, you could just add it as a new craft-able item.

That would be the easy way to do it. However, if you want to apply a name to an existing weapon, e.g. as a reward because it was used to slay this evil titan, I would prefer another approach where the game grants titles by itself, based on actions / events like slaying a titan or killing x Goblins.

Oh, yes, I can’t wait to get an Green Unusual Killstreak Pants of the Lazy Whale.

We’ve had some discussion before about customisability, not sure whether or not we’ll be able to customise weapons/ armour, part of me hopes you can, part of me hopes you can’t and that we get randomly generated awesome names depending on the quality of the equipment :smiley:


#6

This gave me a question about… types of weapons xD

Swords (1-handed ones only)
Shields
Bows

What other types of weapons will be included in battle system?

I think it works rather well in Dwarf Fortress from what I’ve seen, but you more or less have to have a game where you’re happy with daft names for it to work. If Stonehearth is going for a more “serious” RPG model, then that’s somewhat harder. In that case, I think giving it a simple stock name (“Epic Pauldrons of Swordfighting” or whatever) that you can then rename yourself if you wish would work best.

my personal favorite… crossbows… :smile:
