The traditional Zomboid killing weapons (axe, baseball bat, knife, gun, etc.) are not great for hunting in the apocalypse. Hand to hand melee weapons all lack the range because wild stuff runs away! Although the exception to this rule is domesticated animals. Guns are really noisy and turn you from predator to prey rather quickly. So some new weapons are going to be needed. (hopefully!?!?) Javelin Long thin shaft with spiky bit on one end. Like a spear but able to be thrown and breaks easily if used for fighting. Sling Two bit of cord attached to a pouch, Used to kill giants among other things. Both quiet to use and relatively easy to make. (compared to a bow) Both require skill to use but have been around for a while now. So must be OK? Also! Stuff normally runs away before dying if it can. So some kind of tracking is a must! Stuff can make a lot of noise as it dies. So using a silent weapon isn't completely safe! Also! Also! The best thing to hunt with is probably a modern bow / crossbow. (But whats the fun in that?)
--Notice: I did not originally create this mod. Credit for the original mod idea and (some of) the code goes to Austin. I added sounds, images and updated and refined the code. The original thread can be found here: http://theindiestone.com/forums/index.php/topic/336-fletchery-mod/-- As said above, I have updated the Fletchery Mod to be compatible with build 27. This mod adds 3 new bows, 2 of which can be found and a third which can be made, as well as a sling. Crossbow - found as loot, most powerful, slowest. Uses bolts. Bow - found as loot, second most powerful, 2nd slowest. Uses Arrows. Homemade Bow - crafted (2 planks, 1 bandage, glue/duct tape etc, Carpentry LV2). Third most powerful, equal fastest. Uses Arrows. Arrows can be crafted (Duct tape, Kitchen knife, Arrow shafts from plank and saw, Feathers from pillows, Carpentry LV1) Sling - crafted (2 bandages). Least powerful, equal fastest. Uses stones, found in bins. If anyone has any ideas for more features, please reply to this thread!
