Most attack on a sword EVER... not.
« on: May 10, 2013, 05:29:16 AM »

Okay, so I finally got some gold in game (tried mining Aluminum, but the whole underwater mining thing is annoying as hell, especially since I didn't find any), and since gold has a slightly better Attack value than Iron, I decided to make the most powerful Gold Sword ever! Checking around these boards, I learned that to get the most attack, I needed a "sword" with as much surface area as possible, so I set out to create a sword with just that.

Unfortunately, I ran into a slight complication...



Translation: There's a limit to how much surface area you can give a sword.   >:(

Edit: BTW, here's am unobstructed pic of the sword I was working on.

And you don't see anything wrong with wielding a 220 kg sword? Is it for your battlemech? =)

As of 0.53? No. Weight matters not in the current build, only Attack. And I wanted to build a sword with the most attack possible. Hence, maximized surface area in varied patterns. When I hit the complexity limit, the gold sword only has ~40 more attack than my current Steel Sword, and I felt I could get way more than that.

Heh.   I've hit that surface area limit too at 42 aluminum.

By the way...  You should learn to Pattern Break.   It'll maximize your damage hardcore.

I thought I was pattern breaking. Look at the image. Different patterns all over the place.

Let me show you like this.  X = Filled spot and O = Unfilled spot.

X
O
X

That's a filled pattern. If you do this.

X
O
X
O
X

That third X will give you 0 Value for it.   It's value has diminished too greatly.  Same things here.

X
X
O
X
That third X, will have nearly no value. 

the Pattern Break system is VERY picky and generally requires 2 distance for it to register that its no longer in pattern.

Ironicially, I've found 1 simple pattern that actually constitutes as a Pattern Breaker, while at the same time, being one repeated pattern.  I won't tell people it, but I'm using it on most of my weapons now.  Wait until you guys see my Epic Massive Sword I plan on making for Multiplayer play.

However, first I still have to finish a Skull Blade sword and a Halo Sword.

So having gotten a bit more practice with the Creation system, I finally did make a Sword with the Most Attack Ever!

Presenting the Golden Eldrich, a sword with a whopping THREE HUNDRED Attack value.


"Golden" because it's made of gold.

"Eldrich" because... well LOOK at it.

With this thing, I can pretty much one or two shot anything my size. For the big boys, I break out a gun.

I like it!  :) Gotta say though, it looks like it can't tell if its a sword, a mace or a hyper-wave communication antenna but it's cool looking no matter what.  :)

Thank you very much ! Can't wait to use it in game (Once I get some Gold in the story). Looking forward to other creations of yours if you are planning on making more :)

To find gold, you need to go to the funny rock formation (not the Meteorite crater) and dig straight down (or spiral if you want to be able to climb back out). You won't find any gold otherwise.

You know, it WOULD be nice if the existing cave systems had ore veins in them...
