Guppycur Posted September 26, 2014 Share Posted September 26, 2014 I suppose this can technically sort of be done via recipes, but if I'm taking apart a car, I should be able to get more use out of it than just some junk metal. I'd like to get more of its individual parts, and [I]not just for melting down.[/I] Currently, if I want say, iron body armor, I have to: Kill an animal (for leather) Find scrap iron (for material) Find clay (for mold) Find wood (for burning) Find small stone (for material) Find iron pipe (don't even get me started on crafting one, vicious circle!) Build a forge Create iron mold Create iron ingot Create leather ...and finally: Craft iron and leather into armor That's 11 steps. ...but why can't I just take an existing stop sign, beat it with a hammer and get the same thing? Make it weaker, I don't care, but to add to the "realism" of the game, let's re-purpose scrap! Car doors for walls, stop signs for armor, windshields for windows, bent rebar for bracers, taped books for leg armor, street lights for fencing, tires for obstacles, use your imagination... that brass trophy? A bowl. Doorknob? A hammer. The feel would be more apocalyptic, and how hard could it be? We already have the items, just give another option next to crafting, call it Re-purposing; [B]or include more options than just melting down[/B]. Each item can already be crafted into "scrap iron", etc, give us the choice to utilize it some other way that would make sense... I'd love to see someone's house patched with car hoods.
