    roughly. but it's not just encrusted, it's a full on block of iron filled with sparking redstone power which glows and electrifies.

    I see...so you right click on the panel to give it shocking power? but I intended it as a trap you can turn on via trip pad or level to make creepsafe hallways etc...

    Yeah, guns, atleast of the really crap kind have been around for ages... age old gun actually came before dynamite I think...

    but anyway, the midas arrow is "magic" and just another comical/impractical use but still somewhat effect gold item. :tongue.gif: Midas being that king midas guy with the golden touch...only in this case. the minecraftian with the golden arrow. jeez, where's your sense of humor martinez?

    (I was inclined to drop a why so serious image, but I shall resist, for the sake of my image. :tongue.gif:)

    Quote from Naithal »
    Dynamic lighting is out until Notch rewrites the light engine, and the properties of the redsteel block have been suggested before. I do like the idea of the tools causing a block to become powered though. They should only set a charge if you use RMB.


    oh damn. and poohy, well where and when, cause I never saw it. But I guess I add to the people who want it... and...what's rmb?

    posted a message on More Uses and Considerations for Combat and Weapons
    I second the call for more uses and considerations for combat. Even if this is minecraft (and not sparta :wink.gif:) and the main thing is building, I'd say some consideration to hunting or adventurous type needs to be made.

    I'm nooot quite 100% on the hammer, sword, dagger thing. But the grenades (or a "stick" of tnt rather than a box of it) would be fine and dandy, AND the firearms. I was actually thinking of making a suggestion to get firearms flying myself.

    Such as:

    [] [] []
    :GP: :Iron: :Iron:
    :Logs^: [] [] (<- should be wood planks rather than log but that's the idea of it)

    would give you a simple handgun or sorts and it could be loaded with specialized ammo made through this:
    [] :Iron: []
    [] [] :Iron:
    [] :Iron: []
    to make bullets which wouldn't be effected by gravity and have a range of about 30 blocks straight ahead and be faster. The gun would eventually run out though and need to be remade.
    or you could make golden bullets the same way which would deal a lot more damage. Furthermore for those trigger happy melee artists, adding a sword to the gun to make a gunblade anyone? Melee power and firearm in one. Now THAT would be badass.

    As for as weapon classes though, if you want to fly with it, let me help.

    Swords aka daggers: Ranging from the wood to the diamond they have moderate damages and the same range they got now. Can be mounted onto the gun say to make a gunblade of the similar strength.

    Spear: Length increased sword. Add a few sticks under the newly crafted sword of choice and you got a spear of the type. a Spear would have increased range, but less damage as it allows to you hit from further off.

    The third class I think should actually be the axe. The axe could have actually been a two use thing, being a strong but shorter range attack and also for lumberjacking. But a hammer idea could possibly be the hard-ended alternative to attacking with an axe which would encumber the user by a small percentage like an armor, but a good bonk could put an enemies lights out in 2 or 3 hits. Cause a diamond sword takes 2 hits to kill most if not all. So a diamond mallet perhaps could be a bonker of choice dealing 1 shot ownage. The drawback being the slight range decrease or slowing of movement.

    Idea for new arrows:

    Redstone shocker-bolt

    Get a normal stonebolt, then surround it with redstone. you get a redstone shocker. When it hits the ground, a 5x5 adjacent range centered at the bolt spread out like a + is zapped with redstone electrical current. Enemies walking in it after a delay or 1 sec (and that includes you if you're not careful) are zapped and paralyzed for a single hit of 3 heart damage. the shocking power lasts 10 seconds but wears off if the stunned player or mob is attacked once by anything else.
    [] [] :Yellow: [] []
    [] :Yellow: :Yellow: :Yellow: []
    :Yellow: :Yellow: [>>-i>] :Yellow: :Yellow:
    [] :Yellow: :Yellow: :Yellow: []
    [] [] :Yellow: [] []

    Midas arrow
    Arrow with a gold ingot tip like so:

    [] :GoldBar: []
    [] [>>-i>] []
    [] ]" title="-<->" /> []

    A kill inflicted with this simplistic bolt turns the creep into a gold statue. XD You can then pick up your golden trophy of a mob and place it in your house or base as a spooky decorative addiction. XD pretty much just a gag arrow. deals same damage as a normal arrow shot would.

    (sorry, double post, I know of edit button, but i thought because of the quick reply you guys have me I would've been "slotted in"/ninja posted on by now. :wink.gif:)

    Roger... but..*scratches head* Which gun thread...?

    And it does suit it to a degree if they're old style, cause dynamite doesn't exactly suit bows, arrows and swords I'd say aswell but if you say so. :wink.gif:

    Alrighty, here I go.

    "Redsteel"
    Redstone should have more uses than wirings I'd say. You should be able to craft it into small blocks using 8 redstone dusts around a single iron ingot to make redsteel. Then redsteel should be useable to make tools.

    Characteristics of a redsteel tools:
    Gives light around the player when they've got one equipped which is around the potency of a torch, only it follows the character.
    has roughly the same strength as a steel tool, maybe just a bit less.
    striking redstone lines with a redsteel tool causes power to go through it for a few seconds rather than destroying the wire (like using redsteel hitting as a switch)

    a possiblity would be to add a glowing effect to a bow by also adding redstone which also allows a bow to glow while held.

    Redsteel would have other uses also, it should be placeable as a halfblock, and when a current of power goes to a redsteel block it emits a current of energy through the block, lighting it up like a bright torch and also shocking an enemy or the player standing on the block. This could be used to make even more effective traps. like shock panel booby traps.

    Heya. Darkmega here, i'm new around on the forum but I couldn't help but notice the banner on andrews sig, so i checked this out. Although this is based for arrows and bows. Why not consider a slightly strongerish weapon such as an old style revolver, like one of those early ones. Cause I noticed gunpowder doesn't have much uses other than TNT making and thought an old style firearm would be perfect to be used.


    [] [] []
    :GP: :Iron: :Iron:
    :Iron: [] []

    ^ how does this settle? A steel case, with gunpowder to make a gun would become a rather useful weapon. But it would require different ammunitions. I'd probably say a stack like this:
    [] :Iron: []
    [] [] :Iron:
    [] :Iron: []

    would create a small load of ammo in stacks of 8 to use with the gun. The gun would deal same amount of damage as an arrow, and would not be affected by gravity and have a range of about... 30 spaces say? The shot would also cause a spark just for effect, the shot speed of the gun would probably be about 0.5 a second even if spam clicked, but would have a cooldown after 8 shots of about 3 seconds (reloading). Shots missed ("omg you missed?") wouldn't be recoverable though.

    or perhaps gold ammo which would be the only practical use for gold in the case cause I was thinking if bullets were made of gold they'd deal double or even triple damage a shot with the same effect. As far as durability of the weapon I'd say about the same as the crossbow before having to be redone.

    as for however was suggesting the spear, I was thinking it would be made of a sword on the end of 2 more sticks and retain the damage and the durability of the sword used, so a stone spear would be same as a stone sword in terms of durability only, because it's a spear it's got like, double poke range. Would be easier to take out skeles that way...and... Idea...
