Earthenware: some PNGs and thoughts Hi!

Here are three .png files for clay cup, pot, and statuette/figurine. Use them any way you like.

I made them a while back when playing with Buoidda's crafts 1.6.2 mod. I found the clay pot image a bit too jarring (pardon the pun). So I made a different one, and then a cup and statuette in the same style. The statuette is loosely based on the Venus of Willendorf, which by itself is wildly anachronistic and anatopistic for the URW setting. Then again, it doesn't strike me as crazy that similar statuettes might have circulated in Iron Age Finland. (Compare e.g. these Iron Age gold statuettes found on Bornholm -- not the same thing, but there was plenty of exchange over the Baltic.) Does anyone know more about this?

My code, adapted from Buoidda, for all the clay items:

Code: [Select]

.Dig clay. "Hunting Horn" [effort:2] [phys:arms,hands,stance] *COMMON* /1/ [noquality] [patch]
{[TERRAIN:lake river]} 'Lake or river (not rapids)'
{[TILE:Hole in the ground]} 'Pit for digging clay'
[NAME:clay lump]

.Dig clay from sea shore. "Hunting Horn" [effort:2] [phys:arms,hands,stance] *COMMON* /1/ [noquality] [patch]
{[TERRAIN:sea]} 'Sea shore'
{[TILE:Water]} 'Stand in water'
[NAME:clay lump]

.Earthenware cooking pot. "Pot" [effort:1] [phys:hands,one-armed] *COMMON* /3h/ \24h\
{[TILE:Hole in the ground]} 'Firing pit'
{Fire} +'Fire nearby'
{Clay lump} (4) [remove]

.Earthenware cup. "Wooden mug" [effort:0] [phys:hands,one-armed] *COMMON* /20/ \8h\
{[TILE:Hole in the ground]} 'Firing pit'
{Fire} +'Fire nearby'
{Clay lump} (1) [remove]

.Terracotta figurine. "Rock" [effort:1] [phys:hands,one-armed] *RITUAL* /2h/ \8h\ |1| %10%
{[TILE:Hole in the ground]} 'Firing pit'
{Fire} +'Fire nearby'
{Clay lump} (2) [remove]


I finally got down to sharing this after a quick try-out of the exciting new BAC mod, which seems to use different (more complex) earthenware crafting recipes. The images could be used with BAC, too, though they hardly cover all of BAC's options.


* The values I used were just a rough guess, not really tested for playability.

* At first blush I prefer Buoidda's simpler recipes -- pit-baking being one of the more 'primitive' ways of producing earthenware. But I haven't tried BAC's kiln mechanism yet, so can't judge. Also, no idea how Iron Age Fins actually baked clay. Anyone?


* When I try to dig for clay in the shallow ponds/puddles of a pine mire, "The setting you are at now doesn't meet the requirements" (for water). Does anyone know what should be changed about

Code: [Select]
{[TERRAIN:lake river]}            'Lake or river (not rapids)'
{[TILE:Hole in the ground]}         'Pit for digging clay'

(identical in Buoidda and BAC) to change this?

With gratitude for all the mods and for this wonderful game!
