Leather/Chain armor Tiers

Post by MRomero11 » Tue Aug 06, 2019 2:03 pm

Hey, how hard would it be to add material versions of leather and chain armor? Are they coded as material themselves? I'm looking for mod that add this feature, like in MM World of Xeen game. Steel Leather armor. Heh, could be renamed to studded leather or something. Graphically, chain armor could be just recolorized, while leather would need new paper sprite, but for now, just implemented bare material for the same sprite? like Helmets?

This would add to the game and you could probably just use the source code for helmets and shields to get the different types although new visuals would be a great touch. I have always wondered what material chain mail was made out of as you can make a build that is not able to wear steel but can still wear chain mail.

Great question. The artwork part seems very easy to do.

Example of a 7 mins work in the screenshot. Give me 30 minutes and you'll have a leather helmet that looks like it was part of the game.

Second variation of a leather helmet.

On the left is my edited version, on the right is how a leather helmet appears in the game.

I have no idea how to put these in the game though.
