Latest file for v1.17.10: 1-click install

Greetings, sweetlings!

Here we have my first written from scratch mod for Vintage Story! It adds 13 craftable staves to the game, one of each wood type, which are useable as a weapon, as well as a 'shield' (to simulate the concept of parrying).

The staves are useable in both the main and off-hand, and the shield effects work in either slot. This means you can have a lantern in your off-hand, and the staff in your main-hand, and still have a block chance!

The block percentage is quite low, lower than the crude shield in the base game.

Statistics may be reworked at some point, depending on how balance feels long-term.

This mod was made specifically for the Ironwoods roleplay server. If you're interested, feel free to hop into our Discord and take a look!

Additionally, this mod adds two non-craftable, creative only items, again made specifically for the Ironwoods. 😏

Enjoy! And do let me know if anything breaks!

Love this idea. I've always held to my experience, after years of long distance travel on foot, a staff is a bare minimum. If you can justify the weight - a rock is a good accompanyment as well. It's the absolute minimum level of self defense that should never be overlooked in the woods and indeed, even in the valleys, plains, or suburbs. Carry a knife, a hatchet, or other sharp things if you want but nothing is as immediately useful as a decent sized stick and a rock to throw.

I'd love to see more cool little features and QoL brought into the base game's mods, this among them. Hope you can get it ironed out and up to stable! Cheers!

I genuinely thought this was a magic mod 

a little disappointed but still a nice mod

Please consider the mod only compatibile with 1.16.5 at the moment, while I troubleshoot why it hates 1.17.9. I have marked it accordinly. Sorry about that. 😓

I get a start-up crash when trying to use this mod. I'm not a part of the server, of course. Just on single player. No idea why. I do use other mods.
