Adding another layer to the game.

I'll use a Malignus idea example,

Malignus could drop a [Lv 7 Security Card] as an ultra rare drop. Seems uselss, might have a [wear] action or a [Use] action.

If you have the card, and go inside a self storage facility searching. You can find [Cat Crate] which uses up the Security Card.

[Cat Crate] has a one time [Use] feature or can be traded. [Cat Crate] turns into [The WhatWalker], an annoying NPC boss with [ :awesome: loots]

Boss: The Whatwalker

Designation: Machine

Storage Contact: Cat Crate

Number in Storage: 1

Description:

The “Whatwalker” is a tripodal item of unknown type. Surface is a pale green with black mottling. A single sphere of what appears to be mother-of-pearl sits on a fleshy cushion at the uppermost point of the “limbs”. Each “limb” ends in a self-adhesive two-pronged “foot”.

Item is ambulatory and appears to be self-motivated. It seems to detect conversations between two or more human subjects, and will approach said speakers quickly and silently. Immediately upon reaching the area of conversation, the item will sharply demand “WHAT?” in an off-putting, shrill voice.

No other activity has been observed.

No power source has been located at the time of this report.


Further Notes: We're keeping it in a cat crate. Please let us know if Dr. Malignus plans to produce anything similar in the future… and if so, why.

I mean about the item search pre-requisite. The whole Malignus and Whatwalker thing was for illustrative purpose. I thought the concept would open up new possibilities.

That seems like a good idea. I like the idea of maybe the bosses dropping hidden item stuff. Like a security access card that might let you access special hidden areas for example

Honestly, the way searching and NPC drops work can use an overhaul, but it would take a lot of effort.

I'm not going to push for this one, it seemed like an easy addition in my brain but then again I really don't understand the ins and outs of coding very well.

I'm sure that we'll be happy and angry at anything you do and don't do so have fun with life.

!! A Mantis Helicopter is too far away to hit with your Dark Tentacles.

Why can't Tentacles be both a blunt and ranged weapon?

Items can only be one type, i.e. something can't be both a weapon and wearable.

Lots of game systems are restrictive like that but it'd be a hassle to change them.

New undead skill tree?:

Monstrous weapons:

Undead (Vamps/Zombie) have a +5% to +15% when using non standard weapons.

Dark tentacles, Cow horn, Shadow Talons, Bloated Stumps, Mannequin Limb, Prosthetic Limb, Severed Arm, Severed Head, Thigh Bone and Concoction.

I don't know if this is a practical change or if it would be difficult to implement.

The goal of this is to allow for an undead evolution of sorts, Zombies using Dark Tentacles seem a hell of alot scarier than one trying to bite at me and a Vampire using Shadow Talons effectively seems more fearsome than one with basic claws.

Just a thought.

New Temporary Races (temporary makes it valuable)

Killed by a necronid? No problem!

You're now a Necronid with a new skill tree!

Killed by Mantis security? That's alright too! They've taken your body to their labs and turned you into an undead killing Cyborg complete with a new skill tree. (side note: now MANTIS is a friendly faction to you, too bad no one else likes your new look)

Have you been beaten up by a Scarecrow? Well the humiliation doesn't stop there! The scarecrow has been playing too much FNAF and he stuffs you onto a pole and fills your innards with straw before plopping a pumpkin on your noggin. You're now a spooky scarecrow! (with a skill tree)

I'm guessing most of this concept is either too difficult to code into the game or too much work to ask for but I liked the thought and figured I'd share it.

Well, in doing my Venomortis testing I noticed something.

You claw at the Venomortis with your Hands for 0 damage to the arm.
You claw at the Venomortis with your Hands for 1 damage to the chest.
You claw at the Venomortis with your Hands for 4 damage to the gut.
You claw at the Venomortis with your Hands for 3 damage to the neck.
You claw at the Venomortis with your Hands for 6 damage to the gut.
You claw at the Venomortis with your Hands for 0 damage to the arm.
You claw at the Venomortis with your Hands for 2 damage to the chest.
You claw at the Venomortis with your Hands for 3 damage to the neck.
You claw at the Venomortis with your Hands for 2 damage to the leg. It dies.

It seemed (and I hope SB or Mammon can confirm) that it has a weak point (the gut seemed unarmored)

So I thought it might be an idea to implement targeted attacks (for increased AP cost) or certain weapons that will only hit a one location.

>Meat Seeking - Zombie does increased damage when striking the head or gut.

There are no weak points.
