Polearms

Description
Adds polearms: Poleaxes, Pikes, and Glaives as well as the 'extended' mod that turns other weapons into polearms.

Polearms do additional damage on charges.

The polearms skill tree allows players to attack at a one square reach range, push away enemies during attacks, and wield polearms with two hands for additional damage.

Polearm Repel doesn't seem to be working, lunges and regular attacks aren't pushing anything. Tested with a steel glaive, and an extended folded carbide longsword.

So do i just attack normally once i get the skill?

There's a skill that you need to learn under the Polearms category to do so.

The mod is well designed and it blends in real nicely with the existing gameworld. I'll say, though, that after a few playthroughs with this mod installed, I have never really felt like the polearm weapons are common enough to justify investing in the skill. I usually only find 2-3 polearm weapons by the time I level into the mid 20's, and because I find so few, it doesn't really keep up with new weapon materials in the same way other weapons do. I've never found higher-tier versions of any of the polearms. Is the "Extended" mod available as a tinkering data disk? I haven't found a data disk but maybe I just got unlucky. I feel like having a data disk would make the skill a bit more viable. :)

In any case, it's a real good example of how to make a mod at the very least. Thanks for putting it up on the workshop!

Ah. Alright, cool; I'll probably switch to this since it's more modern

@Mid Favila I wasn't aware of that mod til you mentioned it! This mod is independent and adds it's own skills to the game.

Interesting concept, I'll be sure to try this out once I have a proper internet connection. How does this interact with the other Spears mod, the one that adds the skill tree and such?

@Blackrave I'd suggest you grab the mod and try it out? If you could help me write a better description I'd really appreciate it, but it does allow for weapons to be made into polearms using the crafting system as you've described.
