Man this game is amazing. I dont like the xp system tho. Why does it take so long to be able to read a book and figure stuff out? Why cant each recipe have a fail chance like magic and the more you do it the better the craft.
Examples, board window, at fab 0 you have a 5% chance for 150% dur, 15% chance 100% dur, 30% chance to get 50% dur, 50% chance to get 25% dur. 0 fab also doubles noise made.
Let’s say you want to craft some fab 8 stuff but you have fab 3, use same format above but to read books to learn recipes it takes skill needed times skill have plus half of time needed times half or 8 x 3 + ( t x (t x .5))?
I dont see why it would be so bad to work crafting like magic as a mod because the original system is what people are used too.
I mean I have worked on my car irl using YouTube videos and car manuals even tho my irl mechanics skill is like 0. It took 8 hours to figure it out but I did and it should have taken a hour.
I’m just saying in the apocalypse I would figure out what wire to tie onto what wire and how to dig a hole or how to remove or install cameras and put up walls but it would take me forever of looking at a manual or video and going step by step and I would figure it out eventually.
It just doesnt seem realistic is all.
