Adding a Welder or Replacing the Propane Torch with It

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.
