1.) fletching is where u add the feathers to the shaft of the arrow, not making the bow.
2.) you should be able to name ur bow or maybe carve runes into it to enhance damage, durability, distance, etc.
You can name most tools and weapons, yes. Carving runs is a intresting idea, but enhancing it involves new strings and stuff for now.
3.) different types of bows, recurve, shortbow, longbow, i doubt compound would work(drawback animation).
No compound bow (this is sort of medieval), but I don't know why that wouldn't work due to the drawback animation.
4.) THROWING KNIVES WOULD BE EPIIIIC! rangers, like those from the rangers apprentice series. Also could have enhancement runes carved on the flat of the blade. Also, reusable, not infinite, but reusable, like arrows, can be stackable up to 32 or 64, unlike when a bow is enchanted with infinity, every time you throw one, you must pick it up, you cant use the same same one over and over again
Throwing knives would likely have a pouch type of thing, which you select a hotbar slot for and you pull knives out of your inv. Enhancement runes are a very intresting concept which might lead to some changes to the enchantrix system... but of course you can pick them back up yes.
5.) i recall some one saying something about birghtsteel being the ONLY metals on meteors. No offense but WRONG, meteor carry everything from water to gold, but the all have large deposits of iridium on them.
Brightsteel is only obtainable in meteors and is the only thing found in meteors in this mod. Brightsteel isn't even a real metal.
6.) for your magic system if you've ever seen an anime called Fairy Tail(i doubt you have), anyway, in the show, they use crystal-type things called 'lacrima' to store magical energy, the larger the lacrima, the larger the amount of magical energy that can be stored within
Energy can be stored in gems, and gems can be thus used as batterys for enchantments or just storage. Energy can be converted into Myst.
7.) painting- i once saw a review on youtube of a mod that allows u to do what you were talking about
Yes, there is a mod that does this.
8.) ebony? wtf? more details requested, ivory, however, can be harvested from dead elephants
The inspiration for ebony as a metal is from Elder Scrolls, look at that wiki.
9.) brewing- im glad you are getting rid of that shitty brewing stand, it was retarded, why not use the cauldrons instead?
10.) cauldrons- make a tall U-shape on crafting table with 7 cobalt ingots, that makes basic cauldron, can't do much besides boil water. then u add gems, different gems in different combinations can create cauldrons with different levels of quality, likelihood of producing the desired potion, and ability to brew different types of potions(such a cauldron for defensive potions, offensive potions, mics. potions, potions that cause effects to the player.
3.)i guess not, but then, i don't know much about how to texture, and i can't use techne cause i run a mac, and GIMP nearly gave me an aneurism, trying to make ONE PIXEL YELLOWi'd love to help work on this, im good for ideas and i plan to learn Java soon, and im currently a builder for the Shur'tugal mod, for credentials: http://bhawk11.imgur.com/all/
no, most of them are only for shurtugal, they are the buildings we're planning to use, to make randomly generating cities, 30X40X10
