New Skills - Gear & Ressource Suggestions

Recommended Posts

New Skills:

  • Extract fibers from plants - maybe existing plants like the Maple Sapling
  • Making cloth from fibers
  • Extract & refine wax - from bayberry plants
  • Poison - extracted from poisonous berries
  • Extract salt from saltwater
  • Cutting down trees - the higher level the bigger tree you can cut

New Gear:

  • Slingshot - made from sticks & rubber (rubber harvested from say rubber boots or rubber trees) - at workbench
  • Sleighs - made of fir wood & metal (Can not be carried in inventory & can only be outside - slows you down considerably) - at Forge
  • Snowshoes - made of wood and string - in inventory
  • Skiis - made of planks & wax (made from Bayberry plants) - at workbench
  • Bone knife - made from animal bones & cloth, so nothing goes to waste - at workbench
  • A proper axe - to cut down trees - smaller at first then bigger the higher level you get - at forge
  • Nails - for whatever use, you use nails for, lol - at forge

New Ressources:

  • Berries - both eatable & poisonous
  • Bayberry plants
  • Rubber trees - even though not natural to Canada
  • Salt - to preserve meat for longer time
  • Eatable mushrooms - found in caves growing on the walls & hard to spot
  • Squirrels - not so much for the meat, but for the tail to add on rabbits hat or other hats

Other things:

  • When harvesting the lantern, we can take the Firestriker out to have for later use.  (credit DystOptimist on Twitch)
  • We should eventually be able to make a small cabin or something similar with the trees, we cut down. Only for the "endgamers" keeping a survival mode going for 3000-5000 in-game days.

This is just a brainstorm wishlist....

A lot of stuff I've seen before, a lot of it either not befitting of the game or not plausible. Slingshots, salt, and axe are all neat, though.

Salt? For what?  Increasing food calories (i know only affects taste, but for game reason)? Or for conservation?

Preservation of meat and perhaps for flavor in other recipes.

As most people kill creatures in TLD for meat, contaminating it with poison would not be a good idea. Except possibly if you were killing a wolf, in which case you wouldn't have time to apply poison.

Would be cool though if some berries were poisonous and some aren't, and you have to learn to recognise the difference. The text when hovering on the berries/plants shold say "berries" and if you get sick, next time it might say "poisonous berries".
