Proposal: A few constructions

Self-killed. -coppro

Adminned at 22 May 2011 16:02:43 UTC

Create a subrule of constructions called “Woodworking tools” with the following text:

A farmer may build the ‘workbench’ construction into one of their partitions by spending 50 wood.

A farmer who owns a workbench may spend 20 wood to build fences on a square. This is represented on the garden patch page by putting square brackets around the contents of that square. This increases the Defence Value of that square by 5. A farmer may not build fences on a square which already has fences.

Create a subrule of constructions called “Juicer” with the following text:

A farmer may build the ‘juicer’ construction into one of their partitions by spending 50 wood.

A farmer who owns a juicer may remove a plant from a square on their garden patch and then increase their juice by 5, or 10 if the plant has the “Juicy” tag. A plant removed in this way is not destroyed for the purposes of the rule “Storage Space”.

Create a subrule of constructions called “Molotov cocktails” with the following text:

A farmer may build the ‘moonshine still’ construction into one of their partitions by spending 50 wood and 30 sun.

A farmer who owns a moonshine still may spend 50 juice to remove everything on a square explosively, including zombies. A plant removed in this way is not destroyed for the purposes of the rule “Storage Space”.

Add to the end of the first paragraph in the rule “Planting”:

A plant may also optionally have any number of tags.

For each of the plants in the following list, give them the Juicy tag if they exist in the Gardening Compendium:
Watermelon, Tomato, Pumpkin, Gourd and Melon

If the Proposal “And All The Boards Did Shrink” passes, replace sun with water in the “Molotov Cocktails” subrule.

for for the idea

against Because the first and third constructions do not limit the effects to the farmer’s own plot.  Also, the sentence “remove a plant from a square on their garden patch” uses the wrong terminology.  Technically, “plant” is an action and “garden patch” is a wiki page.

It was intended that the first and third constructions aren’t limited to the owner’s patch. Having a fence built on your land is beneficial so there’s no reason to object to having one built for you.

As for the third construction, if you’re willing to spend 80 resources to get a construction and another 50 to get a single molotov cocktail, I figured it should be fairly powerful.

I’ll repropose it with proper terminology once I get more feedback to see what else needs fixing. Also I’ll limit the constructions to their owners plot if people prefer it that way,

CoV against  because moonshine can take out sheds.

An idea to keep molotov cocktails reasonably powerful without allowing them to blow up other farmer’s plots: have them explode in a 2x2 or 3x3 area or something like that.
