Munchies and Bling

Almost done with the item maker! I'm currently working on the food, which will be followed up by armor and clothing.

The big question is . . . can armor and clothing co-exist?

The bonus of having clothing instead of armor is that it can hold more powerful enchantments than armor can. Common sense dictates that you can put on a chain mail shirt on top of a cloth shirt, but common sense also dictates that wearing an iron helm and a baseball cap is rather silly.

The two easiest scenarios are as follows . . .

1. Each armor and clothing use a location guide and each location can only have either a piece of armor or some clothing in it.

2. Each armor and clothing use a location guide and each location can have both a piece of armor and some clothing in it.

Either one spits in the face of common sense. This results in a Califer that fuddles around trying to find the best solution.

Darn me and my commitment to excellence!

Is this for your job or extra on the side stuff? I oviously don't understand it but....It looks cool.

This is an extra on-the-side thing. Even if we're making games at work it may not always be the game that we want to make. For example, Peter and I have always wanted to make a tactics game, but it doesn't look like we're going to be making one at the day-job any time soon. Who knows, maybe we'll make one of those later.

But yeah, this is all for fun.
