I think there should be a welder the player can carry to weld stuff in addition to or instead of the propane torch. See the thing is propane torches aren't used for welding they're used for brazening so having one for welding in the game is inaccurate. Welders are used for welding which mainly involves a spark of gas and electricity rather than a simply flame of gas like a torch. There should be dedicated welder the player can carry with them to realistically weld stuff. It could be something like this: https://www.bigiron.com/Lots/1993MillerMillermatic250MigWelder Basically it could either fit in the player's inventory (albeit weighing a lot) or you'd have to lug and place it around like a generator. If the welder exists in addition to the propane torch instead of replacing it there should be some pros and cons to using it instead. Welding machines require electricity so you'd need either a battery, a generator or the still working power grid to power it. Okay so that would be a con compared to using the welding torch (which you just need a propane for) so what would be a pro? Well the welder could use a lot less fuel than a propane torch. Plus it could weld really fast. Also could be more durable than the welding torch. Maybe you could even gain more experience with it per use than the propane torch! I guess if the welder were to replace the propane torch it could be modeled and textured differently as well as renamed. Maybe it could function the same or function as I suggested above. Welders would be found in factories, auto shops and some garages.
I'd like to suggest to you: Gabions aka wire mehs walls Ingredients: Make use of and to create the wire mesh with the metalworking skill, , and Using to dig a trench for foundation Creating the foundation with , (?), and Adding the mesh to the foundation with (from ) and the use of Finally filling these with excess stones ( and ) from foraging (good way to get rid of them) Procedure: 1 - Shovel: Dig a small trench for a concrete foundation 2 - Bucket: Create a unit of concrete from sand out of sandbags (optional - finite resource?), cement bags and water 3 - Metalworking: Craft mesh units from wire and metal scrap 4 - Assemble: Pour concrete into trench, wait some hours till cured (optional), screw mesh unit onto concrete, add stones to wire mesh 5 - Profit! These walls could possibly be an alternative to the log walls in mid / late game Please like, share and discuss on these
