Of course I'm a newbie, and I'm going to ask it anyway. How does one go about discovering new recipe? For example, I'm getting good enough at cooking that I'm now able to cook some meats, slice up the breads and fruits. My goal being to make some kind of Dagwood gi-normous sandwich. Do I really just have to keep trying various combinations of three and see if they work together? Can a recipe require more than three items?
Thank you ARMqwerty. I think I recall that analyze is perma stuck at Novice? Can I get a confirmation?
Yeah you can't raise it, but you don't need to because it's based off of the craft used to make the object. If that makes sense. So if you want know how to make that cool plate, your armor crafting skill has to be high enough (if it's craftable) to even analyze it.

That makes sense to me. I still think we should have an idea of what goes into common stuff. I mean lets look at a sears and roebucks hunting knife. Usually a steel blade, with a steel or brass guard, bone or horn handle with a brass or steel pommel. See, I can analyze I may not be able to make one, probably not even assemble one, but I'd have an idea of the parts needed if I ran across raw materials.
A antler halfspear clearly needs an antler. And you can figure out that spears require long wooden poles and halfspears require short wooden poles. So you can still do stuff like that. You wont be 100% correct and 'some' crafts are weird. But a good 65% is relatively intuitive. That 65% is generally mass produced by everyone, so they're not too easy to sell though.
vex: Like, going backwards on the karma scale, or just plain having karma at all, wtf. Ridiculousness, is the fate of everything related to Arm, I guess.

psyxypher: I'd be ashamed of myself if my bad experiences stopped you from /at least/ trying.
Mar 27, 2020 0:15:17 GMT -5
psyxypher: Though, I would like an alternative to Karma. I've come up with a few.

nile: not arm does a lot of call outs for crafts etc...tough to be one as your subguild but it shouldn't be your main focus either. i also tend to find them just useful for coins etc really...that said, not arm is far more accommodating if you want shit done

psyxypher: Would be nice if when you use the Craft command to see recipes you could make, that you could piece together what other ingredients are. Right now I'm flopping between trying for another character or seeing if I can weather this out.
Mar 27, 2020 15:08:04 GMT -5
psyxypher: Both sound like pretty terrible options, to be honest.
Mar 27, 2020 15:08:17 GMT -5
vex: If you aren't having fun with it, do something else. Why waste leisure time, on something not making you happy? It makes no sense at all.
Mar 27, 2020 15:36:32 GMT -5
psyxypher: Mainly 'cause I'm worried my next character will be even less fun....but you're right.

psyxypher: Is there a board for ideas you'd want to add to the game?
Mar 28, 2020 18:52:21 GMT -5
nile: use the 'idea xxxx' command
Mar 30, 2020 4:22:28 GMT -5
psyxypher: I like having all my crazy ideas in one place. And getting feedback.

explayer: You can't count on the staff to read GDB threads. If you want a record of your ideas, submit them one by one using their request tool.
Mar 31, 2020 3:16:47 GMT -5
psyxypher: Again, I want some feedback from players before I put the ideas in.
Mar 31, 2020 9:22:24 GMT -5
explayer: Yeah, good luck with that. The GDB hates anything that isn't proposed by the staff.
Mar 31, 2020 13:01:21 GMT -5
vex: They also hate anything, that IS proposed by staff.
Mar 31, 2020 17:45:33 GMT -5
vex: Basically, the GDB is a shitchute spectacle of the worst kind, and you should respect yourself more, than to actively seek their opinion on anything.
Mar 31, 2020 17:47:28 GMT -5
vex: And you can pretty much count on them censoring, just about anything you post, that upsets one of their discord sluts, too.
Mar 31, 2020 17:49:32 GMT -5
psyxypher: I gave up on Arm a /long/ time ago. Like, sometime around Hasan's death, to be precise.
Mar 31, 2020 22:59:08 GMT -5
jkarr: did u run with hasan back then
Apr 1, 2020 9:57:56 GMT -5
psyxypher: Not at all. I was a turbo-noob back then.
