Brixx's Medieval Mat Sci
#1
So I've been working hard to do a bunch of new sprites for Mat Sci, but work's started up for me again (finally) and it's put a serious dent in my attempt to try and learn coding.  I'm hoping there's an experienced coder out there that wants to help me champion this project and develop more new toys.  More than willing to keep working on sprites for this though I might need a hand setting up ways to code and test them.

Also have math for weapons and such not posted here, but feel they need adjustments.


New Material Parts

Blades
   

Chain
   

Handle
   

Guard
   

Sledgehead
   

Sphere
   

Staff
   



Mat Sci Weapons

New Arrow
   

Bolas
   

New Bow
   

Hand Axe
   

Mace
   

Sledgehammer
   

Notice I got the transparencies set up so you can see the handle through the head!
glass/glass, synthrubber/glass, glass/synthrubber
   

New Spear
   

An alternate spear I like but needs a 3rd layer for the cloth
   

Spiked Gloves
   

Also did an alternate for the drawn bow

Hot damn! These tickle the inner clown in me!

Exciting!

Can you combine these freely, or are they given set combinations? I'd love to make a weird hammer-flail-staff thing.

Edit: the sprites are fabulous, great job!

They're designed for weapons to be built from set recipes using the parts.  For the weapons shown the theorized recipes would be:

Arrow [Arrowhead + 1 metal/organic]
Bolas [2 Spheres + 1 chain]
Bow [2 metal/organic + 1 Fabric]
Hand Axe [1 blade + 2 handle]
Mace [1 Sphere + 1 handle]
Sledgehammer [1 Sledgehead + 2 handle]
Spear [1 Arrowhead + 1 Staff]
Spiked Gloves [2 Blades + Armored Gloves]
Knife [1 Blade + 1 Handle]

Hoping we can flag anything with a rubber weapon head to be a 'toy' version with the sound effect and animation, but only 1 damage.

Forgot to add the basic knife!
   


Plans for other upcoming things:
Spiked Ball
Sword
Rapier
Halberd
Lucern (Mega) Sledge
Man Catcher
Flail
Battleaxe
Claymore


Helms (that you can add glasses to as a flip down visor)
Shield (Special effect based on highest stat)
Containment Vest (Like Sec's armored vest, but more for cold/heat/etc. resistances than defense. Can slap on certain suits like a sec vest)
Custom Armor (Takes the 3 highest stats and turns them mega defense. Takes lowest 3 and makes them mega weaknesses)
Catapult
Spotlight (Would like to be able to add signal covers that add holographic designs. eg warning off an area around a blob)


There's also been a lot of discussion on discord regarding other changes that should happen. Adding a smelting point for ores when alloying them and creating a radiation resistance stat being the main two.

More "wishlisty" type stuff includes fixing the material analyzer and adding an extra use for the ore box cash input via mineral magnet upgrades (auto scan asteroids, pay to pull a type, auto repair the magnet, pull faster but damage more, etc.)

Wouldn't the flail just be Handle + Chain + Sphere?

Plan was Handle + Chain + Spiked Ball for that one! Though nothing is set in stone yet.

Edit: Might as well post the plan for the others. Two handed ones in particular are still WiP's.

Spiked Ball: [1 sphere + 2 arrowheads]
Sword: [1 handle + 1 guard + 1 blade]
Rapier: [1 handle + 1 guard + 1 arrow]
Halberd: [2 staff + 2 blade]
Lucern Sledge: [2 staff + 2 sledgehead]
Man Catcher: [2 staff + 1 guard + 1 chain]
Battleaxe: [2 handle + 4 blade]
Claymore: [2 handle + 2 guard + 2 blade]


Edit Edit: Note to self - While working on two handed weapons add a pike or other large spear
