  1. Deconstructing a door isn't rocket science. I would say at least beginner level carpentry. Screwdriver to undo the hinges, again to remove the knob. Lift door away from frame. Done. I've done it many times in my life because of shifting houses or frames, warping from heat and humidity, etc--and I'm under 30 still and have little training in the field. If they're going for realism here, this would be a relatively easy thing to add. They would need a door sprite and a little extra coding for the new item, but I don't see it being too difficult to implement--the only this is time contraints and
  2. I suppose what we really need is someone of the appropriate age to confirm when they first realised there were solar garden lamps everywhere. XD
  3. True, if the timeframe is in the 80's, solar would be a little less likely. However, being born in the 80's myself, I remember well that such things were in common use by the mid 90's--at least that's when I started paying attention to those things. It's possible they were used earlier, but going any further back than the late 80s for those would be pushing it unless they only showed up on expensive properties. However, to add to my argument, some of the TVs in the houses look to be flat-screens--so solar lighting can't be that far of a stretch. :3
  4. So, I didn't see this suggested anywhere and I searched pretty thoroughly, so... It might be part of the incoming alternate energy stuff, but since I can't seem to find that info I'm going to post this anyways. * * * The idea is that when the power goes out, there's presently very little ways to create light. Candles and fire run out and risk burning down your base--batteries also die. So, for lighting your base, solar garden lamps would work fantastically for providing a light source once the power goes out without using up your batteries. They could be attached to posts with rope like
  5. I always thought it a bit weird that we have screwdrivers but have to bash down doors in order to get supplies from them. I like the idea of having a screwdriver in your inventory to be the required tool to remove a door relatively quietly from a building whilst recieving all of its materials, including an "unhinged door" as opposed to planks. As it stands, we don't have a way to guarantee we get two hinges and a knob from each door we take down.
  6. I r genuise. XD I'm glad to see people are really open about things on this forum. I know some places that would see flak like woah for a suggstion like this. I'm actually half serious though, pillow forts would be epic and comforting. Also windmills, like the dutch kind. Carpentry Hoooo!
