different kinds of water

Recommended Posts

Seeing that there are few different kinds of water as a resource in MD and assuming that they are to have different uses perhaps the device at War Hold could be adapted with ability to interact with different kinds of water?

 

we have

water - gathered from lakes, rivers - used in many activities (plant watering, tea brewing, some other recipes)

rain water - gathered from rain - atm not very useful (perhaps could be used for watering plants as well? it's kinda silly it can't be used that way)

mineral water - gathered from caves and mineral pools - (usefulness of it might be a completely different topic :P)

 

perhaps we also might have

sea water - gathered from sea - used in the WH device to get salt from it

 

now for the device at War Hold:

rain water + sand + heat = water (filtered or boiled to improve it's quality)

water + some kind of dust and/or gas = mineral water 

lots of sea water + even more heat = water + little bit of salt

 

this is ofc just a rough idea, the final recipes should be more complicated,

but what do you think of that?

I like like the idea of activating the device in LR and the different resources it could help to produce.

 

My only question is -- Where would you get salt water from? Which sea? (Going slightly offtopic :P) I mean, I personally think that there is little to no evidence of the water surrounding GG to actually be a sea. Ok, so it has beaches -- so do lot's of large lakes, rivers, streams, etc --, it has a lighthouse -- one that obviously doesn't work, considering the boats crashed around it. So was it really built for the purpose we could assume from the nae? Or has it got some other meaning...?--, plantation near the storm docks looks little like plants found in the sea and why is it that, no matter what direction we walk, see no traces of another shoreline, the opposing to Golemus ones?

 

So yeah, I don't actually see GG shores as a sea, more a large lake, so is there anywhere else you'd plan getting Sea water? (Not saying I'm correct, just pondering.)

For me the lighthouse and the fact that Wraith's Wreck looks more like open see ship is enough to consider that possibility.

But introducing sea/salty water is secondary issue in the topic. 

Adapting the War Hold device is what I'd like to focus the discussion on.

was kinda hoping for a more heated up discussion :P

I'm not sure such support will be enough to get it done, but at least the idea is out there now 

thank you all who took part :)

The only problem comes from tools. Do you want different tools for all these kinds of water or the current tools will be able to gather, for example, "salt water"/"sea water"?

If not ... then it is not worth it. Too much trouble and we already have too many shared tools not used.

there are already separate tools for water, rainwater and mineral water.

I imagine the sea water (if it was to be introduced) would be gathered with the same bucket that's used in gathering regular water.

After all the process of gathering it is exactly the same.

      I am announcing the first artwork quest of the community garden project. A number of artists have offered to contribute to the community garden project, but as of yet the only contributed artwork has been the drawing of a single flower. (an excellent drawing by Marvolo, I might add)

      This artwork quest will require several pieces to be contributed, and the reward will be a wishpoint if the work meets my expectations.

      The goal of this first artwork quest is to bring to life the work of the previous design quest winner, Brulant, who designed the pond area of the garden. His work can be found at the bottom of the first page of the Community Garden Plant List:

      [url="http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/9588-community-garden-plant-list/"]http://magicduel.inv...den-plant-list/[/url]

      Completion of the artwork quest requires the following series of drawings:

      One drawing of each plant listed in Brulant's design
      A drawing of the windmill
      A drawing of the greenhouse
      A drawing of the aeration stream (including water-filtration plants)
      A drawing of the entire pond/greenhouse area, including all plants and elements (dimensional proportion should be the same as an MD scene)

      [b]ALL ARTWORKS MUST BE SUBMITTED IN THE COMMUNITY GARDEN ARTWORK THREAD:[/b]
      [b][url="http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/9589-community-garden-artwork/"]http://magicduel.inv...garden-artwork/[/url][/b]

      Feel free to add new plants or elements if they come to you.

      Please look through the Community Garden Design thread to gain an understanding of the function of the various garden elements.
      http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/9566-community-garden-design/

      All drawings must be black and white pencil in the relative style of MD.
      Bear in mind this entire area of the garden is representative of Marind Bell, and the use of MB symbolism is encouraged.

      Post your drawings as you finish each one. I may have comments, concerns, suggestions about each one. Some drawings may need to be tweaked to fit the design. Others may need to be redrawn.

      The deadline for a first drawing to be submitted is the final day of year 6 (12/31/2011). There is currently no deadline for the completion of this quest.

      If anyone wishes to sponsor this quest with lesser rewards, they will be given out for the individual drawings, with the wishpoint being given for the completed quest.

      I encourage everyone, including those with little artistic experience, to participate. Each area of the garden will undergo this kind of quest, and a little practice now may help you win a wishpoint later if you do not win now.

      Thanks for your important contribution and good luck!
