Discussion: Range Weapon Idea's

Postby SargentSchlong » Thu Aug 01, 2013 6:38 pm

Before I start spouting out idea's, I have been wondering.

What is the age of the audience this game is directed to? I would assume children, though, I would also disagree based on what I have seen of the community. The reason I ask is because of an Idea I have for some ranged weapons.

Guns. Inappropriate?

On a side note, I think crossbows would be cool too?

I liked the slingshot idea as well, and sometimes I think more powerful ones could be made. Though, I think they should shoot faster than bows, but the power of the weapon would be much lower.

Anyone else have ideas? Opinions?

Most likely between 12-24, same as most RPG's these days.

Inappropriate, no. But I can see how Guns might be kind of OP.

Crossbows would be very cool though, I'd like to see that. Maybe they can be like crossbows in other games, where they only require one hand instead of two. That way you can dual-weild crossbows, or just have a shield and a crossbow. Of course, you'd have to reduce the damage compared to their two-handed bow counterparts (like the damage difference between staves and wands) to prevent the whole OP issue again, but I think crossbows would be a fantastic way to make up for the fact that Rangers have the worst combat currently.

Personally, I never liked when guns and bows were in the same game; it always seems like bows should be crap compared to guns. Crossbows would be cool, but they seem like they would be harder to draw/create with HH's graphics, but I donno.

Yea, I thought about guns and stuff like that, MAYBE one day though. Dosko is probably right on the age range. I thought about having chainsaws and stuff as weapons too, but I'm not sure if I want to change the theme of the weapons to more modern stuff like that or not. Maybe possibly in the future. Crossbows could be an idea, the thing is right now the current bow animation MAY not look good with crossbows.. Or maybe it would?

Well I don't like the idea of guns tho like other people said it sounds kinda OP and how would the projectile look like?
Guns would make an instant hit to anybody without a chance to dodge like arrows, also if there are guns there will someday that people is going to ask for a machine guns and that would make it even more OP.

Slingshots are cool but probably hard to make a wide variety of cool ones.

I beg to differ, though, I have limited artistic talent

Ever heard of Yugioh? Well in that game, when cards where made with guns they'd get banned and remade. They would usually change the huge guns with huge LAZERS! Also about the age range, what type of example would it teach to kids if they saw guns in this game hmm? Maybe not have guns, but have some futuristic type of gun-like weapon. Gauss Rifle maybe? Ray Gun? Pew pew gun (Trademarking that, Ill get right on the design too .-.)? Etc.

They are VERY rough. Bare with me.

Know to explain some things, The pictures in the boxes are the bullets fired by the slingshot.
I would love criticism. After all, this is for the good of the game, and the experience of the players.
