bookcases from vote points or books or both
« on: July 16, 2015, 02:53:52 am »
B great to add in option to buy bookcases with vote points say 5  and the real bottle net books i.e cobble ,steel ,concrete etc for various amouts depending on how you view there importance .
I have voted for like 3 days ran round for like 2 on new wipe and still not found those books so be good if after a certain point i new at least i could get the books.
I personally like the idea of bookcases (thanks jblatz91) instead of books so you still have that random chance .
Cheers Mman

Bookcases would be a great addition to the vote store. I think a price of 2 or 3 vote points each would be fair.

I did make leather and forge books more common in the loot.xml yesterday.

I have found concrete and riddle on zombies. Concrete on a normal, Riddle on  maneater.

But I haven't found a tanning or forge book yet! Has anyone?

I made it more common...twice... and I added it to another loot container. Let's see if anyone finds it by day 100.

The daggone leather tanning is the same loot group as forge ahead, odd.

I am thinking I will add bookcase recipes in to help, we can craft nightstands and desks don't forget.

found lots of forge think the macgyvers are too common a drop maybe taking up other books possible drops if thats how it works i dont think you should make bookcases craftable be better to make vote and coin buyable encourage voteing and not make them too op maybe price of 3 votes then instead of 5  found one steel and one concrete still not found crossbow .
Have no idea if possible but as so many ask on pimps forum bigger  map zoom or even a craftable map of your explored areas would be awesome
keep up the great work Hot

Code: [Select]
<lootgroup name="craftingBooks" count="1">
<item name="signHere"/>
<item name="leatherTanning"/>
<item name="harryPotter"/>
<item name="freeMason"/>
<item name="barnRaising"/>
<item name="forgeAheadBook"/>
<item name="wrenchSchematic"/>
</lootgroup>

Code: [Select]
<lootgroup name="craftingBooksII" count="1">
<item name="heavyMetal"/>
<item name="adobeDoobieDo"/>
<item name="macDyverBookVolumeII"/>
<item name="setInConcrete"/>
<item name="theRiddleOfSteel"/>
<item name="applyYourself"/>
<item name="safetyDance"/>
<item name="hammerSchematic"/>
<item name="macDyverBook"/>
</lootgroup>


You see the loot groups they belong to. There are no probabilities attached, and leather tanning is near the top of one with macDyver near the bottom of another. So why you do get more of one than another in the group? I do not know. Randomness?

I got a leather tanning book yesterday from bookcase. I got setinConcrete days ago from zombie. Quite a few wrenchschematics. Several macDyver books, a hammer schematic, a Riddleofsteel.

Maybe it is just random roll of the dice, shrug. But you see, there is no probability of one over the other in the groups. If it had to do with order you would see quite a few leathertanning and no macDyver.

Mostly I loot my armor, or trade  someone making it. Cloth., leather, football, iron, swat, kevlar armors are all lootable.

Zidac: Found multiple crossbow books and leather working books before work. I hit two bookstores.  A very large 2 story and a regular. Not sure if it was patch, random number probability or you modding.

me modding. I used my own loot.xml (the one from 12.2), not the vanilla.
