Hi! As i already said and started little discussion in this topic below: http://community.playstarbound.com/...nge-and-guns-in-offended-koala-version.57367/ Starbound is really lacking a low-tier gun. I mean, i it is afterall a Sci-Fi game, right? And what is most of the Sci-Fi combat about? Running around guns blazing. And so far, in Starbound it is quite an achievement to get a gun if you are not a game veteran. I know, there is bow, and also thrown weapons... About the bow: 1) It's slow and coarsy! At least for me... I'm sure there are some who love the bow, and it has a nice commando-guerilla ( -robinson-cruzoe on tier 1 also ) feeling but... I just can't stand running around with only a bow for the first 4-20 hours. And i dont wonna rush to the higher tiers only to get a gun... 2) Space Cowboys are about to arrive! Don't make Novakids run around with only a bow... 3) It is a sci fi game right? About thrown weapons: 1) As far as i know, there are not craftable! ( except snowballs, but come on... Sci-Fi game, right? ) And not really that common... 2) Even if you can 3d print'em, they will still be expensive as... Really expensive. And i don't like the general idea to pay the money to earn the money... 3) Sci-Fi gameee... My solution? Giving players a Tier-1 Flintlock pistol to craft ( compared to bow - longer reload, deals bit more damage, takes bit more energy to fire it, doesn't drop meat. ) and some simple laser or modern Tier-2 Gun. Arguments to back it: 1) Sci-Fi ga... Ok, you know what i'm trying to say. 2) Quite a numer of people miss guns! 3) You can't really go ranged on low tiers now if are not much of a Rambo fan... 4) Meele guys have these multiple craftable weapons to choose from, and ranged? We have bow... 5) Novakids just HAVE to get a gun early. Please. 6) ,,Crafting flintlock pistol with basic tools? Ridiculous!" Yeah, but somehow you can make a Metalwork Station with these... Same thing with Tier 2 gun - Hero can make brain extrating gun somehow, but simple shotgun is just too much for him. And of course, i realise that you surely want to add more guns in the future but... Can we have this one thing bit earlier? Cheers!
