Old high tier steel and meteoric iron
Spinnachwizard posted a topic in DiscussionBefore you get your twist in a twist, and start typing on the keyboard... "Hey that's already been suggested. maybe you should search the thing first." (this applies to other players not the mods and admins of this site, just to let you knowyou guys and gals are doing a wonderful job...) Anyways! back on topic, Id like to start by saying I support the idea of meteoric iron. I have distaste in blue and red steel, and I'm well aware this game is shooting for believably, not realism... (took me awhile to wrap my head around since I'm just dumb..." BUT, after I thought and pondered about the old steel types. Which I'm almost sure the Devsare going to change since TFC2 says " a whole new rewrite of the mod." Sowhat to consider changing the oldmetals to. What would be the most plausible option for the highest tier tool, and better help, I have a LOT of experience in metal working, and materials science (metals) well not official but more of recreational. Im just going too put this out but meteoric iron seems like the best substitute for the old blue, black, and red steel. Why? well honestly seems more believable too me. -stays in within time line -Its amine ablemineral / native metal -plus there is multiple types of them "ores"/meteorites(alloy comp) -space metal hasuniquecharacteristicssuch as atomiccrystallinestructures that are hard to replicate on Earth. But then I realize this problem and why I think dunk said no to this. How could this apply to metallurgy? Since the basis is to mix and alloy metals together it would seem worthless to just have a whole new separate metal on its own. but isn't that what iron and steel is? Well, the metal ages go copper, Bronze, Iron, Steel, and I know you guys probably want all mixing of the metals, but I think the better idea would be to have just Copper/Bronze(maybe bismuth bronze/Iron/Steel/Meteoric Iron, and this can apply to tools. NOW I'm not saying mixing the metals is bad and needs to go, I'm saying that just because you have gold, silver and bismuth does not me you should add it in a big pot and get a super metal. To me? not believable, BUT to have certain metals such as stated in order above^ is believable. And the metallurgy idea could be different instead of a giant mixing pot of metal. not so sound mean D: Also I'm not saying trash all the rest ex. gold, brass, silver, platinum. But to re-purposethanfor something more practical from that era so it stays in format with the game/mod. Now I'm aware the mod has black bronze, and bismuth bronze is there as a substitute. but this is just a personnel opinion. Keep bismuth bronze, kick black bronze, but that probably wont happen. just wanted to say it The metal melting process and mixing alloys in a whole beast itself and I have no clue if the Devs are keeping the old system or a awesome new one. fingers crossed* So inconclusion,I think the best option for a last tier metal would be meteoric iron, as in itself is practically just space stainless or kovar metal. I read what other people thought and it seemed positivebut I don't know if anyone would think differently on my point of view. I'm not all sure how it would all work since that's a whole process in itself. And I would just like to say I LOOOVE the idea where I can smelt my metals and mix them, I do this in real life for fun and some income. I really do enjoy it and Id like to see the other metals become more practical in their own aspects. I love this mod and it is truly amazing! I wish I could help more indepthwith metals in the game with my extensive knowledge but anywaysThank you Guys! Thanks for reading- Spinach depth
