I’ve had this for a while, for about two years, and I know others have talked about it
However, I just want to lay a little idea of what it may be like, and what I’d like to see - and what you think about it, what you’d like to see.
First, player movement is stunted in mud or otherwise hard-to-maneuver terrain without the proper equipment and clothing. In plain terrain (smooth roads, smooth sidewalks, flat grass, open fields, etc) there would be minuscule or no effect on players.
- This introduces Civilian Shoes or Sneakers
Which are used as general protection against the terrain, cold, and etc. They may provide basic temp boosts, and provide protection against harmful terrain (broken roads, broken sidewalks, dense forests, etc). These are made out of your run-of-the-mill 3d-plastic BS and can be found in civilian housing.
Heels could be a sub-class of the Civilian Shoes, somehow… :L
- Then there’s Running Shoes
These shoes have a boost when walking on common land - or land that the average person would walk on (sidewalks, roads, duh). On these types of man-made surfaces players would receive a general speed boost (3-20%?) when walking or running (both?). These can be uncommonly found in civilian housing, and slightly more common in designer stores, high-end retail stores, and etc. To prevent these from being a super direct upgrade from Shoes they may be less durable, or take more durability when their boost is in effect
OK, so about terrain at the beginning
- Civilian Boots
would help negate the effects of mud and hard-to-maneuver terrain, and would heavily suppress any negative buffs (beside speed). They can be uncommonly found in civilian housing, and slightly more commonly found in mountain ranges, or other outdoor places. Made of low-quality civilian-grade fabric
- Then there’s Military Boots
They completely negate the negative effects of mud and hard-to-maneuver terrain such as the speed, damage, or other things. They would be pretty meta, however, lack the speed of Running Shoes, can only be found in military loot tables, and would be decently rare. Made of high-quality military-grade fabric.
Running shoes on steroids, 300% speed boost
