Update: Tool Skill

KfB4PcJ.png

You now have between 8 and 16 tool learning slots in your lifetime, depending on your genetic fitness.  Each tool that you learn consumes one of your slots.  You can't learn everything, so you must chose carefully and coordinate your efforts with those around you.

A more complete explanation of this idea is described here:

I’m the tortilla chips guy. If you find tortilla chips in your town, they were probably made by me. Tortilla chip responsibly! Make your own bowls for tortilla chips.

Regarding GIFs, they were cool, but a ton of work (usually at least an hour of extra work per week).  In the latest Steam update, Steam started requiring a large image for every news post, and GIF was not supported.  I needed to make still images for Steam.... and I definitely couldn't afford to make 2 images every week.

Re: Update: Tool Skill

How come cars, and planes are tools? while horse carts, and horse carts with tires are not?

And I think that these tool are missing:

Bait bag
Snare
stomper (for crock pot)
track kit
drop spindle
mallet
horse cart
horse cart rubber

and if you want to be extra Cruella:

baskets
(old) hand carts
hand carts with tires
(old) wheelbarrow

Re: Update: Tool Skill

I learned the pads without using them, just by picking them from a bowl. Is this intended for a reason?

If it is , it means people wont be able to move 1 pad to another bowl without use  a tool slot

Re: Update: Tool Skill

Yay, this is interesting!

It'd be cool if the restriction was less artificial. It's true that one can learn only so many skills in a lifetime, but only because our time is limited. Over time humans got dramatically better at teaching each other. It'd feel better if learning was limited by time and resources.

I love that games like OHOL allow us to learn about real society, but there are two dangers:
1. Inconsistent rules and hardcoded, non-emergent outcomes that turn the game into a just-so story.
2. Consistent, but unrealistic rules that turn the game into a rigged thought experiment.

Another thing: I wonder if recipes would be a better unit of learning instead of items. For example, you could learn a random recipe associated with the tool every time you try to use a recipe you don't know.

Re: Update: Tool Skill

This update made it clear to me there is no too late to change something.

This update will be an integral part to many additions to the game. I love how evolving this game

Being able to do something others can't creates value
Once we have way more Hightech tools there will be a real demand for specialist.
