      Server Move   09/13/2018

      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.

Smithing skill

7 posts in this topic

I had some questions about smithing skill and how/when it affects items, especially tools.

 

It is said that smithing skill increases the durability of tools. It is however not stated that you only start to get durability increase for tools at certain points. I have a tool smithing skill of 400 and currently the only tools that get a durability increase (to my knowledge) are chisels, hammers and shovels. I also gain durability increase on knives. My 400 skill translates into 83.9% on the anvil.

 

I still don't get durability increase (afaik) on axes, saws, (prospecter's) picks and scythes. I assume that those should start getting durability increase somewhere between 83.9% and 100%. The thing is, I made 100 bronze tools to go from 80.6 to 83.6%. Clearly, the percentage increase you get per smithed tool is not linear. Now imagine if 100% is needed for durability increase on pickaxes (the main reason I'm leveling my tool smithing), that would be a TON more tools that you need to make. Does anyone have similar experiences like me? On what tools do you get durability increase and at what smithing skill?

 

What does general smithing skill actually do? Does it somehow influence your other smithing skill lvls? Because somehow I have 70+% weapon smithing skill (tested with javelin), even though I have like 2 weapon smithing skill. I also have a red steel knife with 20k+ durability which apparently goes of the weapon smithing %.

 

If you know an answer to my questions, please do reply. If you have some other question related to what smithing skill actually does, please ask.

 

P.S.: In case this is relevant, I have 645 general smithing skill.

I had a similar question, the answer was skills were only added in B78, no guarantee of it working correctly.

As far as I remember, (and yes, knives are weapons) general smithing is increased by any smithing that you do. The idea is that if all you do is make weapons, you're not going to be absolute shit at making armor (you certainly know your way around an anvil) but you're still inexperienced with armor making itself. The general smithing skill represents the skills transferable between different types of blacksmithing.

Like Commiellama said, the skill system was only just added in 78, and is still pretty buggy. We'll be going through it for the next few versions to make sure that everything is working as intended, because as it currently stands, there are a lot of weird bugs.

So I should no longer bother trying to get my smithing skill up in order to get durability increase on pickaxes because you can't get durability increase on them atm? or can you?

 

I've been debating leveling up my smithing skill in creative just to see, but it's still a lot of work :P.

The answer to your question is simply "We don't know." in regards to Build 78. We'll look into it a bit more in Build 79, and then we will have complete answers for these questions.
