Mining Ores And Smelting Companies

Hi.

Today i am gonna show off one of our companies that we have implemented. The Smelting Company. Smelting Companies obviously smelt ores into materials that other companies use to create goods. Small pieces of ore can be mined by hitting resources with an appropriate tool (e.g. a pickaxe).

Those pieces of ore are in-game objects that you can pick up and carry around, you can’t put those in your backpack as an inventory item but you can put them inside your car or truck. Cars and trucks have limited space to their inventory. That is why we have created the option to put ores (or basically any object you can carry) on a pallet to give benefits to truck owners because they can load those pallets onto their trucks with forklifts and make a lot more ore per run.

The smelting company scripts are done but not “connected” to the framework because we changed the way our company furniture system works. Since my focus has shifted to a different, very cool system, I will continue this DevBlog later. Also, we have a lot of real life stuff going on at the moment so updates will be scarce for the next 2-3 weeks.

To be continued..
