An interesting idea or just madness?


Recommended Posts

I know this idea will open up a can of worms, please just don't destroy me if it is a bad or ridiculous idea.

 

I was talking with a friend today and she plays "that other popular mmorpg game" and we are talking about cooking and recipes. Has anyone considered making a  place in the base where characters can "cook" recipes that would increase health or stamina and could be carried in the salvage area?

Not that you can increase health or stamina with it but the Empowerment Station in your base can load you up on numerous buffs.

Dislike certain sounds? Silence/Modify specific sounds. Looking for modified whole powerset sfx?

Check out Michiyo's modder or Solerverse's thread.  Got a punny character? You should share it.

This is a lot of what the OP asked for and then a ton more.  Yes Health and Stamina are not directly affected but if you increase all your armor and all sorts of other buffs protecting health and endurance…..

One of the base buffs is a recovery increase. There's no corresponding regeneration increase though.

One of my favorite elements in my bases.  That said, the idea of creating a bit of a look to it, like a chemistry set or kitchen, would be appreciated.  It's a bit cold and sterile to just go to it, put the required elements in, and get the effects requested.

As others have pointed out you have some options to create buffs (and debuffs IIRC) but they look pretty... dull.

 

I love the idea of jazzing up those stations to give them some character.

 

I'd also like to point out that ideas can be interesting because of their madness 👺🧞‍♂️🦏

Can always base-edit the station into something more appealing.  I just threw together a mystic empowerment station in my base real quick to give it some flair. I don't use tech items very much because I hate listening to them, but the same can be done to spice it up.

The pot brownies @Oubliette_Red makes with that thing are amazing.

The health and endurance inspirations cover this. They were part of the game before the invention (crafting) system started.

And they can be held in inspiration storage https://homecoming.wiki/wiki/Inspiration_Storage

 

So both of those are already covered, but I do understand how these "items" are crafted in other games.

Here's some workstation options.

 

How about in an arcade cabinet?

Or a soda machine?

or maybe in an oven?

I'm sure there are some bases somewhere they took time to dress up the empowerment stations too.

 

[edit|

 

Found one.

If someone posts a reply quoting me and I don't reply, they are most probably on ignore.

Some of them even know that I have them on ignore.

But that won't stop some of them from bullying and harassing people, because some of them love to do it.

It's who they are. There is a group of them that have banded together to do it. They think that it is acceptable.

Ignore is a tool to improve your gaming experience. Don't feel bad about using it.

Perhaps, instead of tying an empowerment station to a single item, a generic disk or square could be developed that could be overlayed with any element or combination of elements in the base builder.  Clicking on the vertical cylindrical or cubical field that passes through these objects would trigger access to the empowerment station.  That way base builders can have maximum creativity, hopefully without forcing the development team to spend much time creating items.

Well, all the workstation pictures I posed have workstations in them.

The one in the soda machine is turned around backwards.

 

I agree that the empowerment station is a bit harder to hide.

 

At the same time, I think the point is that anyone that enters a base should be able to figure out where the basic amenities are.

If you hide them too much, then people won't be able to use them and go looking for other bases that make access easy instead.
