    My first one resulted in my cutting myself in the middle finger, luckily only a light cut.

    ....

    I will never stab plastic dolls again.

    posted a message on Larger Weapon variety.
    More Weapons
    Note: I know that there are other threads about new weapons, but I have different ideas than them.
    The idea is that there could be a new extended crafting bench, which is pretty much just made with crafting benches being put together like chests, going from 3x3 to 3x6 to 3x6+3x3, ending at a 6x6 bench, giving you a 6x6 crafting space, that would allow you to make other larger things, but that is for a different subject.
    [] [] []
    [] :Bench: :Bench:
    [] [] []
    You could make things such as spears, crossbows, and long swords with it. I don't know how hard to code this would be,but there could be reach variations, with the sword being the medium reach, the crossbow having the most, and a knife having the smallest.

    There could also be a crafting book that told you how to make swords, pickaxes, axes, spears, knives, and bows. Not giving too much access to recipes, though. It could be 4 books combined, I guess.
    :bookshelf: :bookshelf:
    :bookshelf: :bookshelf:
    :bookshelf: = Book.

    Spears
    The spear could be a weapon with an extended reach and an increase in damage, possibly a slower hit speed than other things, also a low durability compared to a sword.. It could be crafted with 4 sticks and some kind of spearhead.

    Longbows
    The longbow could shoot a bit slower than a regular bow, but faster than a crossbow. It has largely extended range to the bow, but would have factors that would make it balanced to the bow, such as the fact that it would be easy to overshoot if you were new to it, and it could have a three or four second drawback, meaning that you have to have experience to be good with it, and hopefully not making it the uber weapon that everybody uses. I also find it hard to get those supplies, cause I suck at fighting. It is crafted like this:

    :|: [] [] [] [] []
    ]" title="-<->" /> :|: [] [] []
    ]" title="-<->" /> [] :|: [] [] []
    ]" title="-<->" /> [] :|: [] [] []
    ]" title="-<->" /> :|: [] [] [] []
    :|: [] [] [] [] []
    ]" title="-<->" /> = String

    Knives
    Knives could be simple weapons make-able with the 2x2 crafting area, it does low damage, and has low reach.
    It could simply be a stick and whatever level material you wanted, used for a last stand, when your other weapons have run out of durability and you are being swarmed by zombies and skeletons, you could pull out a knife as you tried to escape. Crafted like so:
    [] :Iron:
    [] :|:
    :Iron: = Wood, stone, iron, gold, or diamond.

    Battle axe
    This is the last of the ones I have seen before, and is pretty much just an axe that can do damage, with a larger damage than a sword but less damage than a Long sword. It also has a semi-faster attack than a spear. It is crafted like so:
    [] :Iron: :Iron: :Iron: []
    [] :Iron: :|: :Iron: []
    [] :Iron: :|: :Iron: []
    [] [] :|: [] []
    [] [] :|: [] []
    [] [] [] [] []
    I would definitely like a suggestion on a better crafting.

    [] :Iron: :|: [] [] []
    [] :|: [] [] [] []
    :|: [] [] [] [] []
    [] [] [] [] [] []
    Crossbow
    The crossbow could be an upgraded version of the bow, that could go further than the bow and do more damage, with a slow reload and special bolts. It is made like so:
    [] [] :|: [] [] []
    [] :|: :|: :|: [] []
    :|: :wood: ]" title="-<->" /> :wood: :|: []
    [] :wood: ]" title="-<->" /> :wood: [] []
    [] [] :wood: [] [] []

    ]" title="-<->" /> = String
    It is a bit weird to craft, but I can't think of anything else.
    The bolts are made like this:
    [] :Flint: []
    [] :|: []
    [] :|: []
    Each one gives two bolts, and once you shoot them, you can't re-collect them.

    Throwing spear
    A variation of the spear, the throwing spear has less range than the bow but does the damage of a spear. It can go about 8-10 blocks to let's say, 11-14 with the bow. It is crafted essentially like a diagonal spear, with very low durability, lasting 3 throws because it is made on the 3x3 crafting bench.

    Shields
    Yes, shields. They can work like armor, with larger sizes that can slow the character down a little, possibly block the character's view depending on where the shield is, and some would just be outright expensive. I guess it could also be possible to change which hand the shield is on based on a option in the menu or possibly it could be placed on your character like armor, but you can only use one shield at time.

    Huge shield:
    16 pieces of whatever resources. (No stone.) slows character down hugely, blocking the left or right side of the screen almost completely, but having a 75% chance to block almost all damage with an iron one, and if diamond, a 90% chance. Lots of durability, able to stand about 30 hits with a sword. It is also possible that it could help protect other players on SMP, if they stand beside or behind you, they can pop out of your cover to battle while you block strokes. Expensive, and, in most cases, not reasonable to use.

    [] [] [] [] [] []
    :Iron: = Wood, Iron, Gold, Diamond.
    Large shield:
    9 pieces of whatever resources. (No stone) Slows character down largely, blocking a large amount of the left or right side of the screen, having a 75% chance of blocking at least 3/4 of the damage taken, and a 30% chance of blocking almost all damage with an iron one. Fairly large durability, able to stand 25 blows with a sword.
    :Iron: :Iron: :Iron:
    :Iron: :Iron: :Iron:
    :Iron: :Iron: :Iron:
    :Iron: = Wood, iron, gold, diamond.
    The only problem is it overlaps the iron, gold, and diamond block recipes. Possibly only create-able on a workbench larger than 3x3.
    Medium shield:
    6 of whatever resource. (No stone.) Slows character down fairly, blocking some of the left or right side of the screen, having a 75% chance of blocking at least 1/2 of damage, and a 15% chance of blocking almost all damage with an iron one. Medium durability, lasting about 20 blows. The general choice, not too expensive and not too weak.
    :Iron: :Iron: :Iron:
    :Iron: :Iron: :Iron:

    Buckler:
    A cheap 3 of whatever recipe, (No stone) barely slows character down, blocking almost none of the left or right side of the screen, having a 60% chance of blocking at least 1/4 of the damage, and a 5% chance of blocking almost all damage with an iron one. Small durability, lasting about 10 blows. Able to be made in large amounts, but not that strong.

    Long sword/Claymore
    The Claymore will have longer reach, but not as much as a spear, and have the largest damage, with about as much of a slow attack as the spear. It is crafted like so:
    [] [] :Iron: [] [] []
    [] [] :Iron: [] [] []
    [] [] :Iron: [] [] []
    [] [] :Iron: [] [] []
    [] [] :|: [] [] []
    [] [] :|: [] [] []

    Club/Baton
    The Club is like a sword with the ability to throw back an enemy 5 blocks, but doing low damage. It attacks semi-quickly, but is effective for creepers or spiders. Also maybe a Baton, which throws the enemy back about 3.5 blocks, but attacks faster, almost as fast as a sword. Another thing is that it does just about as much damage as a knife.

    Club:
    :wood: :wood: :wood:
    :wood: :|: :wood:
    [] :|: []

    Baton:
    [] :|: []

    That is all I have so far, but I would love feedback, criticism, or suggestions.
    Thanks for reading!g
