Predator armor? Why would that even be considered? I've heard of armored vests for dogs, but tigers? And the main reason I hunt tigers is because they attack prey animals, so I try to eliminate the competition. Perhaps if dogs are domesticated we could have a dogsled. It would tip up to 45° to scale hills.

People tend to add goofy stuff to games to make them harder. Just making sure that idea was shot down before it was suggested, games like Minecraft can have armored zombies, I just want to be sure no one makes SC animals armored when they spawn.

Love the railcarts, would be very easy. In a Harmless world of mine (no pun intended), my mining tunnels span almost half a day's march. I can't go to the mineable area first thing in the morning, mine for 2 minutes, and return before daylight. The mines are just too big for that, a cart would save SO much time.

Minecraft is the epitome of goofy; have you seen the My Little Pony mod? Perhaps a parachute would be helpful. I often have to choose between descending a cliff or fighting an angry rhino. A parachute would allow me to make the choice more easily, just jump and inflate your parachute, maybe popping off a few shots at the stunned creature as it comes to see what became of me.

@raccoon

You say that "people add goofy things to games to make them harder". I actually think the opposite is true. (If I misquoted you, I'm sorry)

You know how Minecraft has mods, why do you think people install them? It's to make their game more fun for their particular tastes.

When we post feature requests on this forum its (mostly) with the understanding that it may most likely never be added to the game.

And once kaalus adds mod compatibility to sc, what's to stop us from adding whatever we want? Goofy or otherwise? I mean a game can only have so many features in its original form depending on what it is. Mods would basically relegate the featue request part of this forum (mostly) redundant.

In the Survivalcraft update information, it says Kaalus only looks at the forum. Why would it say that if he didn't look here either? The forum feature request area is FOR update ideas. Plus, there have already been times he took ideas from here, like cotton and ivy. Until we get Mods, the feature request area matters.

All I was saying with my earlier post was that having armored tigers is ridiculous. Animals should only be armored if you apply it to them naturally. Horse armor is genius, but predator armor would be ridiculous. And the reason for Survivalcraft is so we aren't goofy and ARE realistic. This game was made with survival in mind.

And no, we don't laugh at each other. As Raccoon says, we are all brothers. Positive criticism only.

@ fredhats

Horse armor is a good idea for horse protection and I wholly support it...but this is a transportation thread and if someone wants armored tigers/predators...should really talk about it in the odt animals thread.

Perhaps we could have some kind of climbing gear like pitons? It would allow you to climb up stone or wood. Because a piton has to be driven hard into a material to support a human's weight, the limiting factor would be the damage resistance of the block. You could scale trees about as fast as you could sneak the same distance, but rock would present a real challenge. Pitons would have to be both worn over shoes and held in the hand to do any good. I would mainly use it for caving, fast predator escape, and mining for things on cliffs.

That...would definitely help with exploring caves. There have been many threads about rope...they are just buried in the forum.

Sorry tinker, I guess we!got off topic there. Sort of went like a conversation of ideas. But about the pitons... Don't ladders already do that? Seems to me like it would be kind of redundant. What would be different about pitons that ladders don't already do?

Oh! I see! You wear the pitons, you can't wear ladders! Lol, that was goofy of me.

So while wearing pitons, climbing walls of stone would be slower than wals of wood. Is that what you mean by "limiting factors"? And the pitons should have to be expensive, early worlds shouldn't be able to climb right away.

Yes, exactly, the pitons could be made of iron rods, with leather for the foot pitons and wood for the hand pitons. That would mean that you would need eight iron for a full set. They would not be able to be diamond plated, because although diamond is nearly impossible to scratch, it shatters easily. Hand pitons would be able to be used as weapons, doing about 3-5 damage. For temporary routes, pitons would be well worth the materials, but watch out, because if your foot pitons wear out well you try to skirt a pit of lava, you will plummet to your death. You can stand attached to a wall even if you aren't holding hand pitons, so long as you are wearing foot pitons, but you can't travel anywhere with just foot pitons and no hand pitons.

Rather than pitons why not hooks ?

Rather than pitons why not hooks ? Throwing hooks in top of a cliff, mountain or trees to climb up easily.

P.S. Whats this survivalist, castaway, greenhorn etc. how do you change it (if possible) ?

They say people can change, but is that really true? If they decide they want to fly, will they grow wings? I don't think so. You don't change yourself, you change how you do things. You have to make your own way. You have to create a way to fly, even while you stay the same.

If you look in the news forum, it tells, the first one is based on post number and the second is based on membership time. And although a grappling hook would have it's advantages, it would be entirely useless on crazy tall cliffs and enclosed tunnels, or for moving very far to either side, but would have the advantage of faster climbing and the ability to swing quickly along cliffs to descend. Optimally, both would be implemented.

Oh thanks.
I think i have to read more stuff in the forum.

They say people can change, but is that really true? If they decide they want to fly, will they grow wings? I don't think so. You don't change yourself, you change how you do things. You have to make your own way. You have to create a way to fly, even while you stay the same.

"Mobile homes"

As a nomad, I don't like staying one place at a time. There could be rubber wheels, axles and a strong material that can act as a cover for it. Crafting chests, dispensers and many other things could put in it. Bulls and horses can pull it. You can also suit it for winter travel, just add chains to it.

If you can take a house with you, what is the point of being a nomad? I thought the whole point was that you wanted a challenge. I guess if you wanted fresh meat or something?

@Raccoon

Sometimes I don't like being in one place, prehaps the animal population dried out or the climate isn't right for me? That's why I prefer mobile homes. I prefer not to stay in a place filled with nothing.
