I have this idea for a small mechanic to add… do I need to get permission from someone to implement it? Basically, I have a fair amount of programming experience but I’ve never helped out with anything open source so I have no clue how things work politically. Do people submit proposals? Is there a way to find out if someone has tried an idea before?
For context: my idea is for a small mechanic that would allow one to build a roof-to-roof bridge out of some planks, nails and tools. Limit it’s max length to maybe two spaces and give it a chance of failure and it seems like it could be a cool new way to get around crowded cities if the buildings are close enough and you’re feeling lucky. How would I go about investigating whether this has been done or not? And how I might try it if it hasn’t?
