Welder Suggestions

Recommended Posts

1. Change the vision on welding gear so instead of constantly having the black squares, they only show up when you're using a welder in hand. But you constantly have a green overlay (Like with mesons, except not a bright shade.)


2. Allow the autolathes to produce welding goggles.


3. Hitting things with the welder can cause a message saying "The welder experiences a sustained backfire!" and causes the tool to overheat and be destroyed.

Welding gear is supposed to be visually obstructive. Also, hitting things with a crowbar doesn't cause the crowbar to bend; I don't see why tools should break whenever you accidentally(or intentionally) beat things with them.

The only thing welding needs is superior welding goggles to have a mechanical benefit over normal welding goggles.


As it stands, they do literally nothing except have a different color

 

Yeah, I'd agree with a buff to SWGs, as there are only two on the whole station, given to the RD and the CE, and they're functionally the same. I'd recommend removing the welding overlay,(black tiles on outer edge, blur tiles inner edge) or having the black tiles turn to blur tiles, and the blur tiles clear, giving a wider visual range.

it seems kind of odd that welding helmets are so limited, because voidsuit helmets protect your eyes from welding without any such visual restrictions


i've only ever used welding goggles briefly as a roboticist. Engineers have no need of them

I'd say let R&D produce some sort of welding goggle.

 

They already can... Sort of. Unless New Code removed it, they were able to make Superior Welding Goggles with the protolathe, but now that I think of I haven't seen it in the lathe menu in some time.


Either way, I don't know about the back firing welders part, but being able to make welding Goggles with lathes would be neat.

you can't look sexy in welding goggles and a bandana with the welding helmet


or if you want to be correct, it doesn't block the engineering helmet mounted flashlight slot
