Sellt's Diary Special - 04/02/2018

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

 

Today, as promised we talk about armor and weapons and what we want to do with them skin wise. 

So first an overview of the tiers and materials:

 

Armor

 

Tier 1

Tier 2

Tier 3

Light

Hide

Leather

Aramid

Medium

Chainmail

Scale

Lamellar

Heavy

Plate

Crystaline

Argentate

 

Weapons

  • List of the Weapons:
  • Dagger
  • Sword
  • Axe
  • Mace
  • Polarm
  • Staff
  • Throwing Weapons (axes, knifes etc)
  • Crossbow
  • Bow

All Weapons have the following tiers:

  • Tier 1: Wood
  • Tier 1.5: Bronze
  • Tier 2: Iron
  • Tier 2.5: Steel
  • Tier 3: Crystaline
  • Tier 3.5: Argentate

 

Requirements for making skin packs

We need skin packs that include all armor but not technically all weapons. For weapons you can combine tier 1 and 1.5, 2 and 2.5, 3 and 3.5 into each one skin for the pack (of course if you want to differentiate even the half levels you are welcome to it.

That means a normal skin pack has skins for the following: 

  • Each Armor type, in total 9
  • Each half weapon level type, in total 27 (if you want to make unique ones for the full levels too: 54)
  • Fun / RP packs can include only skins for basic armor/Weapons. Clothing for jobs, or costumes (Halloween). 

 

Also, a sword doesn't need to look like a normal sword. It only needs to use the same damage type (example: it can look like a Katana, rapier, etc. all using slashing damage). The same goes for the other weapon types. Some packs don't even need to entirely adhere to the listed material, for example a "nature" pack can have a bone-sword with inlaid diamonds as the tier 3.5 weapon.

 

Which packs do we absolutely need:

  • A default one for all types of weapons included.
  • One pack for each nation (national armor and weapons)

 

besides these, we take all (that look somewhat good) and if fitting will be in game earn-able or via the store. You can also make, for example, an RP pack, where armor looks like the clothing of different jobs and the weapons like their jobs tools. 

 

I hope this is clear, if not please post your questions here (not pm or discord) so others will see the answers too.

 

Thank you!

Given the number of ranged weapons in this set, this is a pretty important aspect of pvp now

had a quick go at them, I also added a few more weapons for variation and a gun because I feel its a bit different from normal ranged weapons.

3fPsVzd.png

so in order:

dagger, sword, axe, large war-hammer, crossbow(also drawing textures below it), bow(also drawing textures below it)
poleaxe, capped staff, lance, spear
great-sword, regular war-hammer, - quiver
javelin, throwing knife, flintlock pistol, throwing axe

This is just base textures and a few of them aren't that good because I didn't spend a long time on them, the polearms would also need a model to them to make them longer when you hold them.

I like the tiers and weapons... just wondering, what do you mean when you say skin packs?, will it work by using nbt tags or simmilar to retexture an item? or will each weapon and armor piece be implemented individually , eg in the creative mode menu? Also, would it be possible to add more shields , for example 2 designs for each nation with aditional 'special' shields' like a wood board with a handle on...

for some variety?

This server has become Mount & Blade: Minerlord, and it's almost harvesting season.

How are crossbows going to be handled? I'm assuming they're going to be more damage with a longer reload time, so people using crossbows would shoot, then switch to a other weapon for melee when the other player closes in. Or, are they just going to be a re-skin bow for one of the packs?

Also, is there any plans on adding in horse-oriented classes, or use of shields (not doors) in the new Hero System?

They're just retextured bows, so no differences in load times or knock-back assumedly. But probably different damage types given that haed came up with something, though I wouldn't put so much blind faith into development power. Be wary of getting hyped for something that when is delivered is either half-baked or something completely different.

Also I'm sure they were saying that mounts will be a purchasable thing. Unsure about how accurate that is.

The plan is for various found gear for dungeons, in-nation special looks, and craftable gear. In addition, we plan to have "skin overlays", which take an item's properties and give it a cosmetic appearance. The cosmetic appearance will likely be store-based, but I'd like to see some show up in questing and Conquest.

 

On Guns & Crossbow : At the moment they can't guarantee a plugin that will work with CQ/the others we're using. They didn't want to mention it as a possibility unless we're sure. Crossbows at the moment are reskins.
   Xathas' Dream version:. Bows work as is. Crossbows work by their "draw" locking the arrow into a fire position and fire with left click; Guns fire instantly but rely on powder in addition to ammo - and bullets don't have a consistent firing curve/line.

It's not hard to change the drawback time of a weapon, especially a custom-made one. If crossbows were just re-skinned bows, I'm sure Had wouldn't bother making them.

Any plans for a rifle of sorts? I imagine even with Kilnholdt's tech level and they wouldn't be much more than the first crude rifles (arquebus). @Xathas (Example in the spoiler.) I can imagine a weapon with recoil that actually knocks you back a few blocks, terrible accuracy, and long reload, but high damage.

Small update from my side.

Started looking up imagery and references by request; and found out that "Silverweave" is Elder Scrolls lore. Have replaced the term with Aramid; which is a classification of high-density, heat-resistant fibers (kevlar is one example of an Aramid)

Heya. Cool stuffs. Here's a few remarks tho;

Crystalline and Argentate armor; what does that even mean? Crystal makes for very poor armor and weapons, to be fair. Also, what is Argentate? A made up substance?
Further; aramid requires some serious technological know-how. Doesn't really fit a medieval setting O.o
If I can be so forward as to suggest the following:

 

Tier 1

Tier 2

Tier 3

Light

Hide

Leather

Boiled Leather

Medium

Gambeson

Scale

Splinted or Lamellar

Heavy

Chainmail

Plate Armor

Whatever alloy or substance you
use for the last tier of weapons.

  • Tier 1:       Wood
  • Tier 1.5:    Stone
  • Tier 2:       Bronze
  • Tier 2.5:    Iron
  • Tier 3:       Steel
  • Tier 3.5:    (Honestly, there are almost no materials better suited to make a weapon than steel. Better swords are usually made by better techniques. However, diamond edges or Titanium composites could theoretically make stronger swords.)

This is, of course, if you want to keep it close to the realm of realism. My suggestions here are not sacrosanct; not by any stretch of the imagination.

Hopefully this was a bit helpful. If you need an extra set of eyes or a brain to pick, I'm more than willing to help!


(Edit: small typo that I saw; It's polearm, not polarm ^^)

    • A'therys Build Team... Gennaian Sneek Peek!
      Hey guys! 

      I am conscious about releasing more sneak peeks of the build teams progress to the public to keep people interested! In the future you can look foward to seeing more sneak peeks on current build projects. Below you can find a picture of the main feature of Falkynthos, the Gennaian capital. As stated in the lore, this is the great Temple of Sjilea comissioned by Theoros in the Goddess' honour. 


      We knew when attempting Falkynthos and Gennaia that ancient Greek themed builds were going to feature prominently. However, we wanted to move it beyond its stereotype of pillars and great buildings and introduce a fantasy feature to the mix. In order to achieve just that, we decided to explore the idea of placing the temple of Sjilea upon a great cliff with a cascading waterfalls all around. "Those travellers who often sought comfort in the thought of paradise or heaven often allured their dreams to images of the Temple of Sjilea and its gardens, an area of outstanding natural beauty." - Some lore person I just made up.

       

      We need you!

      I want to take this chance to thank everyone on the build team who has assisted in the project so far, though there is plenty still left to do. This moves me to my next point, we need you! Have you ever wanted to try your hand at building? Join with a team that encourages self-value and respect for one another? Amongst our current builders, we have an accolade of creative vision and an ambition to deliver for what the community expects of us. As such we recruit builders who are knowledgeable of Conquest Reforged, and though we may not be the best, we drive ourselves to deliver and not compromise quality with a bespoke building structure. Whether you're a new or existing community member, I encourage you to apply today!

    • Good day A'therians! Today I come with fantastic news. 

      As you all know, the years of A'therys have seen some impressive flags; From the glorious Vrovonic Sun to the randomness of egg-plant and duck flags.

      This month, we challenge your artistic talents and ideals to suggest national flags for each of the five new nations!

       

      **** What We're Looking For ****

      Please submit the following for your entry to be considered:

      * Nation : The most important thing to know; we obviously can't judge criteria unless you tell us which nation you're submitting for.

      * Flag Design : What is your intended design for the flag; this can include the emblem, color scheme, and even how it is carried (Is it a pennant, a battle standard, or does the flag have a unique shape to it?)

      * In-Game Appearance : Please include a photo of an in-game appearance of your flag. As Horizons will be using Conquest, please send a photo of your flag In-Game.

      * What Your Flag Represents :  Every flag's symbols mean something. For example; the United States has 50 stars representing the 50 states; and 13 stripes to represent the original 13 colonies.

      * ( Optional ) Artistic Render : Do you have artistic talent, or know an artist who's willing to help you out? Feel free to shoot along an out-of-game artistic render!

      * ( Optional ) Bribe the Judges : We accept Cash, Check, Gold, Bitcoins, and your parents' credit cards  
                              *  DISCLAIMER : This last one is a joke...

       
      You may submit entries until December 31st, 2017.
      Limit 1 Flag Entry per person, per nation (You can submit 1 flag for all 5 nations , but not 5 flags for 1 nation)
      Winners will be announced January 14th, 2018!

    • Looking for Real Estate? (Town Info Post)
      Are you looking to buy a prime piece of property this side of the Stormwall?

      Well have I got a deal for you!

      Today we have a special post for you as a small update, which will hopefully provide some insight into the functioning of towns in Horizons. As you know, towns are an important aspect of the server experience. They provide us with shelter, community, and inspire us to build and immerse ourselves in the map. However, some changes are important to know for the release of Horizons.

      Towns

       

      - Towns will no longer be purchasable with real money: all towns will be available within the game using in-game currency.

      - We will no longer be using Towny; a custom plugin is being developed for our specific needs.

      - There will be a minimum player requirement to start a town. No longer will one or two person towns be allowed to set up – our preliminary go-to number has been 10 people, but this may change (however it will not change drastically, so be prepared.) Without this minimum your purchase will be rejected by your nation head.

      - Each town will be required to pay a periodic upkeep through in-game currency. This will automatically be charged to your town bank; nonpayment will result in penalties up to eventual removal of your town. The upkeep will require that minimum of people to meet – extra hands will lighten the burden for you. Maintaining an active player-base will therefore be crucial to the survival of your town. We are aware that this number is high – it is meant to be. You may need to reach out to players you have not traditionally played with to meet the requirements. With this, new players will be valued as potential contributors to the towns upkeep and be welcomed everywhere.

      - Towns who keep their PvP status on (more on this later*) will be granted special privilege – their upkeep rates will be lower, allowing for less work to be spent mining and trading, and more time slaying and looting. This may not seem like much of a benefit at first, but players will quickly see the value in having to pay less tax. There will be more information on this process at a later date.

      - To facilitate players without a town, capitals will be livable – Considered a starter town, the nation head will be tasked with overseeing the running of their nation hub. In it you will be given opportunity for room and board in case you are unable to join a player-ran town. Your lodgings may not be as luxurious as if you were in a player ran town though.

       

      More information will be released later, and all above is subject to change! This is the working explanation for the town mechanic – it may be tweaked, however the main points are relatively safe to assume as true unless stated otherwise.

       

       


      (Just an example  of a title deed given by a nation Head)
