More Valuable/Useful Trees - A VERY minor mod
« on: March 30, 2011, 10:30:51 pm »

These are two trees I modded into my game mainly to make the products offered by the elves a bit more interesting. These are two custom trees whose wood is a bit more useful for weapons and armor (and a bit more expensive) than the standard trees:

Good idea, not a new idea mind you Ironwood has been around for a while including the Genesis mod. Still, a good idea and it might give elves something to use.

You don't have to make it an actual tree that has iron-like properties, however.  The thing about that is that dwarves can use those trees as well.  If you make it a reaction restricted so that only elves can use the reaction, they can convert normal wood into Blessed Forest Defender Wood to make decent weapons and armor, while nobody else can get a slice of that pie (excepting trade).

Personally, I like [DF] because after climbing the damned learning cliff, I'm too elitist to consider not liking it.

I've had good results just arming them with spears and maces instead of swords, actually.

Never used Dwarf Therapist, mods or tilesets in all the years I've been playing.
I think Toady's confusing interface better simulates the experience of a bunch of disorganised drunken dwarves running a fort.
