Chairs
« on: 23 March 2015, 12:05:30 »
We had some "brainstorming" in the Steam-forums over the weekend.
A good idea resulted - i exclude it here

 a use for chairs, simple, straight, equal to bed-rules:

dwarves like to have a chairs for eating
 ( no sitting animation required - do not eat chairs  ;D )

A valid chair has to be placed next to a table inside the shelter.

If a dwarf goes to eat and there is a free chair for him then he will put his pillow onto the seat as dwarves do with their bundle next to the bed.
Then he will eat as usual from all of the tables, no matter where his chair is.

Only:
this dwarf has an own chair inside the shelter, next to a a table.
No other conditions.

If a dwarf has a chair then his personal "overtime-satiety-decrement" gets lowered, depending on chairs-quality.
If dwarf has no chair then nothing changes.


= chair upgrades food-quality, dwarves with a good chair need less often food.


Perhaps exclude armchairs & sofas ( no "chair"-property) and add some new luxury chairs with fabrics or leather for the seats


Sofa/armchair-thought:
these could influence the health-regeneration when dwarves idle.

Personally I think that the bonus that you request is imperceptible and boring for gameplay, and drawing the pillows for all the chairs (also textile) + programming part for AI is not worth it...

It would give the chairs a reason and it would be palpable if one has to refill tables less often the better the chairs.
And if don't want to draw pillows- it still can be counted if enough valid chairs for all dwarves inside a shelter without having a visual effect - it just would look nicer.

Mentioning nicer looks:
please redraw the big furnace- it's looks is so oldfashioned and doesn't fit the pretty other stuff. It should look more like bricks where it's made from and fit the brickwall-looks.

And something's still wrong with that elevator-houses frontwall- depending on light-distance it becomes dark blue.
