A very small little thread I wanted to start here.
So, for those that don’t know, unless it’s been stated recently otherwise, Stonehearth is looking to also include water wheels, windmills, pipes and pumping for water, and some electrical-type things - this information given in many different Q n’ A livestreams over on twitch.
As always, highly recommend them if you want to get to know more about the game, but better yet, watch them when available to answer those burning questions you’ve got!
… Anyway, all that said, I love the idea of having these moving parts in Stonehearth. It really makes the world feel alive. You add in actually moving windmills, flowing rivers, waves on the coasts, chirping birds, jumping deer, and… uhh… ‘forgetful’ fish swimming in the water, it all just sounds amazing and so alive.
But like a human being, I could always want more!
No, all in all, I was just thinking about having a moving crane in the game. A medieval crane used for construction / heavy lifting. Something like this:https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/1a/c4/24/1ac4249f83b1e8cbf787f65e5ef5e095.jpg
The problem however is I can’t really think of a reason to include this.
One idea I had was with mining. Let’s say you find some very rare resource - or some really rare loot while mining out an area deep underground. To make it an extra challenge, what about saying that to extract this loot / resource, you’ll need a crane to help lift it out…?
Again, no idea. Don’t really think it’s that practical of an idea… and I don’t know how to make it one… But that said, I’d just like to see that in the game. I don’t know…
What do you guys think!?
Let me know!
