[SSRP Suggestion] "Feedable" Printers
1 month 3 weeks ago #1406873
Server Name: SSRP
Suggestion Title: Feedable Printers
How would it benefit the server: To add versatility to printers, you could add new printers similar to the thing seen with the bunny printer; except instead of feeding it carrots, you could feed it a certain item that can be crafted, farmed, etc. The printer could be a "herbal" printer, so it can still be boosted, but players can boost it more using an item like carrots, melons, etc. Giving more relevance to the fruit/veg items. This could work in one of a couple of ways:
1) Temporarily, in that the player can feed it repeated doses of the item to keep a timer up, encouraging active engagement with the printer.
2) Working with a bar that grows in efficiency the more items are added to it, reaching an eventual max level.
Potential Issues/Exploits: Economy inflation, but it really depends on how powerful the printer would be and if people would regard it to be worth the investment.
Additional Notes: I thought feeding the bunny printer a carrot was a neat idea, so this is sort of to add onto that a bit. I have done something like this in the past where I've suggested a prototype printer, but this one relies more on other gameplay mechanics.
