I was bothered by the use of some metals, for example, you're never gonna craft copper or iron gear because it's so much better to craft the alloy.
Or that the best choice for developing your army is to rush for iron, with no risk whatsoever, and go full steel production. Thus making lead close to useless.
So I made this mod! In this mod, I changed the combat stats of lead and platinum, and I added 1 new precious alloy (electrum) and 4 new high tier metals (tungsten, orichalcum, mithril, titanium).
I also added a research tree to metal smelting, with a new workshop, the smelting lab! Now, you will have to discover bronze, steel, and rose gold smelting, plus the smelting of all the new metals.
-A new workshop, the smelting lab.
-The recipes to smelt bronze, steel, rose gold, and the new metals, now needs to be researched in the smelting lab.
-Added a new high-value alloy, electrum (1 bar of silver + 1 bar of gold).
-Changed the combat stats of lead and platinum. Lead is now slightly better than steel for blunt weapons, and platinum is slightly better than lead for blunt weapons.
-Added 4 new military metals : tungsten, orichalcum, mithril, and titanium. All require 2 raw ores and 2 coal to turn into one bar.
-Tungsten is the best material for blunt weapons, orichalcum for piercing weapons, mithril for slashing weapons, and titanium for armor.
-Kingdoms with high enough worth will see the goblins use the new metals.https://www.dropbox.com/sh/1ret0kacnbyt5ez/AADgB-BT2Lf1CQkvSQr4AX3Ea?dl=0
(I originally made the mod for the Steam Workshop, but sadly couldn't upload it. To use it, just put the folder in "your steam folder"\SteamApps\common\Gnomoria\Mods)
