Please post any comments/bugs you have regarding Cannons - loading, crafting, and firing.
Figured it out. The water pitcher needs to be full, and I had to make the black powder from the alchemy menu, 3rd from the bottom and not the purchased saltpeter impersonating black powder.
Perhaps people with less than 50 INT could accidently mount the cannon the wrong way and fire a cannon ball through themselves?I agree there should be some sort of failure. Like how if you use poisoning skill w/ less than 80 alch you may poison yourself. Could blow up
Would be so annoying though
But maybe, possibly there might be some farmers we could help out in the form of quests that could provide components. *shrugs* Still maybe a bit convoluted for a game. But having only one source, is going to make it difficult.Into the 19th century, niter-beds were prepared by mixing manure with either mortar or wood ashes, common earth and organic materials such as straw to give porosity to a compost pile typically 1.5×2×5 meters in size. The heap was usually under a cover from the rain, kept moist with urine, turned often to accelerate the decomposition and leached with water after approximately one year. Dung-heaps were a particularly common source: ammonia from the decomposition of urea and other nitrogenous materials would undergo bacterial oxidation to produce various nitrates, primarily calcium nitrate, which could be converted to potassium nitrate by the addition of potash from wood ashes.
I like it, crafters are going to be happy with it. It is not a one time buy so I would expect to see vendors catering to this market almost immediately.I find the preparation and operation of cannons to be a very complicated process. Maybe a little too realistic?
Nah we wont. Too many different skills and unless we can sell it for a mil or so it will not be worth the effort to make it. It will end up like all the other items that require multiple crafting skills and sell for cheap. We can make faster gold elsewhere from the limited crafting we have left. Only the people that actually are going to use the boats will craft them for themselves they won't need us. Maybe if they add a requirement to use valorite and high end iron instead of iron where you can just smelt or buy from npc to get then trow in using gold or higher hammers or barbed kits or heartwood kits or runic saws or add in frost wood or other such material then maybe they will need dedicated crafters, other than that we dedicated ones are useless to rest of the community.I like it, crafters are going to be happy with it.

Yea levels are pretty low. Like I said dedicated crafters not needed anybody can do it without us with there barely used crafters.
