Add Paper/writing/maps/cartographer skill.

301
Simple as the title says. Add paper and tools to write with to send messages to your allies "realisticly" or leave messages on a "message board" about what needs to be done for the camp or for example there is a message board next to the blacksmiths shop and when you are on you leave notes on his board like orders what needs to be made and such.
Make maps that can be edited like a specific kingdom/guild can mark enemy positions or anything similar. And ofc the skill to make the maps/even paper.
Could allso add "seals" that allow a paper to be sealed by a high rank person with a seal ring or similar so we know messages are comming intact.
Possibilities are endless.

    Yes. Since my post about skill progression is largely ignored I decided to instead add my 2 cents to already existing suggestions/requests.
    This is a great idea. First of all, one great appeal in any sandboy game is exploration. LiF HAS TO feature a large map when it realeases so people can go and explore. But that means no preexplored map. So the ability to draw maps, mark information on them and trade those maps can be important. Also the writing/seals, etc can be really good for immersion. Also if religion gets a larger role, let's say you can form your own religion and gain bonuses, creating religious texts, runes, etc, or stealing those can be another layer of gameplay which benefits the game.
    And if recipes/writs/plans/tomes of technique could get into the game (read my suggestion on the forums if you will) then again, writing coudl be important.

    Also this would mean that someone has to produce the quils, paper and ink for these, yet another layer.

    So in short, yes, yes and oh hell yes.

    I've also written a post about this. I really like to have mapmaking and the preceding paper/writing skill, it could also precede mentoring I think, so a teacher must also be able to read/write in order to gain his knowledge / pass it better.

    Mapmaking:
    To be able to create stategic maps, a resource map or a battle plan or even just a simple marker, my base is here would be great. The map additions would occur on your map option as a layer that can be enabled or disabled, but only if you carry the map.

    You should be able to copy maps or notes, but it will take time and require paper or parchment, made from thin leather as it was in those times.

    Also the ability to leave an instruction note in a chest for new members would be a nice feature that would be made possible by this.


    I like also the idea of declarations or messages to other guilds.

    So, in short, you have my vote!

    Great idea, no question.

    Especially the Maps are interesting. Would be great to be able to mark positions and so on. Even to create a Map of a Settling or a city.

    I think this is a great idea and if they put Taverns in, it would make them more realistic as well. I especially like the whole letting people know if there are things that they could help with like orders to fill or things that are for sale or if there is a criminal with a bounty on his head in the area. I also would like to be able to write a diary in game of my adventures and add maps of places I have been or places to avoid.

    The Carpenter might create a Frame which is used for geting each sheet out of a tanning tube. Whriting with a feather and Tinte as a rare fish ingredience and pin notes on moveable Containers, doors or pinboard with nails ...

    - Pinboard could be double-sided. One side just for Claim-Members, one for public reading.
    - some skill should be needet ... and as mostly the clerus was able to read and write, the Monks Outfit get it´s sense in the game.

    Sounds like a great idea to me and most of the items ARE implemented yet.

    It would also give the Architect skill an aditional option: Predesigned Buildings from "Architects" which can be builded by a mason. So you could let your "own house, fortress what ever" be planed by an Architect, without doing it yourself.

    That's a great idea! If there are just signs and requests that I can put for other players during my absence - it will be great!

    Great idea!!

    I have some additional ideas to this!

    At first is turn off map for all player. And only player with cartogrpher skill, can draw map, when walk around (something like in Mincecraft) map automaticly draw on paper in hand.

    And when draw this map, can give someone else and hi see on minimap only this part of terrain which was drawed for cartographer.

    Cartographer skill can be available from Arts skill as map painting on 30 or 60 points :)

    Additional skill to this is a paper craft, which should be available in this same time as FLAX (procuration 90) and this paper should be produced from Pairus Cane, or from Thin leather when had procuration 30 or 60.

    And of course to this is necessary Writing Tools from carpenter :)

    Additional:
    on thin leather can only black and white drawings
    on papirus player can draw in colours.

    Awesome idea!!! :D

    Problem is we already have a map.
    That’s why I propose to add “fog of war” which can be uncovered by any player.
    Cartographer can howether write down areas he uncovered (whole map or the part he chose). Then if given to another player, he can open this map and update his. Our cartographers can add markers, notes, cities etc.

    I don’t believe this idea is very hard to implement AND it will add exploration excitement.

    As for something to write on - a vellum (calfskin) was used in those times I believe. ;)

    In order to make maps matter, we need a fog of war on the map. You should have to explore each region to 'uncover' those unexplored portions of the map.

    I would add also that it would be nice for a cartographer to point important places on the map that would be seen by his guild. For example, I explore and find a village, I can mark it on the map and it will stay ton the map for my guildmates or I discover a spot where there are horses etc.

    I like this idea. In fact over a year ago I had already written and published a detailed concept of how it could work, looked over and approved for being do-able by "Mr. Mod" Basil himself.
