Why is this unique and balanced? This is the first crowd control shuriken and can be used on groups of enemies such as godwalls or hordes of minions in dungeons. This game-changing power is balanced by the relatively low damage, high MP cost, and lower projectile speed and range.
It looks pretty interesting. Does it boomerang like "Flaming Boomerang" bow?
@Vasya No, it would just go backwards the exact same way it came. Otherwise it would be extremely op for crowd control.
Something about the sprite is not right, i don't know what but something isn't right(or maybe i don't like it).
Crowd control purposes okay, but i have a question: it has 5 range?(When going foward and back like captain 8.8 range) or has 10 range at max?
@XlindowX Yep, it looks LITTLE bit like swastika. But I like it.
The shading tho...
I didn't want to tag Vasya sry
^ that's true
@XlindowX It has 10 range forward and back. So when it goes forward, it goes 10. And coming back it's also 10.
@Pyrouge i see...
Why that range if this is made for croud control purposes? I suggest 6.5 or 7 range.
@Pyrouge so 20 range 😂
@XlindowX I'll make the range 7.5
@XlindowX Possibly the shading is what you don't like, since if it resembles the Sun the inside should be brightest. I was thinking that.
@Wizardism @XlindowX Here, I made it brighter in the middle:
@Wizardism Probably, i use my own instinct to judge somebody's work, so sometimes i don't even know what's wrong with it.
@Pyrouge i see... I'll give you a tip with the shape:
-Maybe what i didn't like was the shape more than the shadding, as i find it too square.
-You can try and mix yellow and orange to make it more "sun" looking.
-Maybe a more rounded shape? Idk i leave that to you, is your item idea anyways, im giving some feedback.
well i'll see how this progress, keep the good work.
@XlindowX I actually didn't make the sprite, but it only looks a little square because the tentacles on the end are really thin. Anyways, tell me what you think of this:
Hey thats pretty good
@Pyrouge I like this new sprite more, even though it's basically a reskinned Mstar. Looks like you're missing the drop location and rate. Stats seem balanced.
- Added drop location and rate
- Changed sprite to be more rounded
- Decreased range from 10 to 7.5
- Decreased projectile speed from 150 to 100
- Decreased projectile lifetime from 1000 to 750
Kinda looks like my idea, but copied.
I had a star that boomeranged, but... I guess it's all over.
But, I actually like it!
@Justin137 Thanks! Sorry if I stole your idea, I just wanted a piercing star, but then I decided to put boomerang on it.
@Pyrouge I like the new sprite.
nice solarium reference there (not sure if you reffed it form starbound or that othergame(im shit with names))
@ergona2.0 I have not played any Terraria-like games; I made up the term on my own.
