      Server Move   09/13/18

      I (Dries007) have recently taken over as main developer and server admin. This involved moving servers to reduce cost. It's likely there will be some more downtime in the future but most  things should be sorted by now. This forum is in dire need of replacement as the software is quite old and can't be easily updated. If you wish to discuss or stay updated, join our discord: https://invite.gg/terrafirmacraft. The forum will remain available to read, but will be locked in the future, when a new system is setup. The forum and wiki are now ad free. If you'd like to contribute to keeping it that way, you can do so via paypal or patreon.

Couldn't we render all the models from the textures like almost minecraft item does and then add the handle or the leather strips, instead of making a separate model for every shield?

We could have 2 textures for every shield, one for the interior and one for the exterior... the model would be generated by the interior  and the front of the shield will have another texture, or viceversa.

example interior.pngexample exterior.png

By the way, eagle i like your textures but i dont think we need stripes of metal everywhere, an umbo should be enough for most shieds

 

Here is how the overlay textures would actually look: example interior texture.pngexample exterior texture.png (they will be 16x32 for this shield of course).

I was thinking... we could still put banners in the front face of the shield, covering the wood. Of course the umbo and other metal parts would cover the banner but a lot of decoration options would still be there.

Wait I have done more accurate designs. I'm not that good with metal textures so you can use these any way you want.

Now, black is metal overlay and white is wood (or banner). Red is invisible overlay.

I totally agree whit you.

We can usa large shields as you said and make small ones (like bucklers) made entire of metal.

I will be doing more textures for each of these shields.

My one complaint is that the Blue Steel design looks a slightly more carrot-like amalgamation of the regular Steel and Black Steel designs, while Red Steel looks amazing and unique.
What about something more diamond-shaped and sturdy looking, like the center of the armor?
Could also take functionality into account for design ideas. The original Red Steel armor specializes in blocking slashing damage, and both of the current Red Steel shapes look good for catching/moving a blade slash.
Blue Steel is meant to block Pirecing damage.

Given my aesthetic, Blue Steel tends to be my main armor end-game.

Well that was the point when i designed them, i think it's intentional...

Well i didn't remember this but, actually i got it luckly right: to me the blue steel looks appropriate for blocking piercing (a large, well defined surface) while the second alternative of red steel looks perfect to block slashing.
