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.

Need more info in description before I sub to this
What exactly is added?
How it works?
Are other mods necessary for it?
and so on.

But I really want to sub, because I always thought that having spears in the game would be cool
Maybe even could be craftable from dagger and bits

Could do damage of dagger, but with longer reach and a bit higher penetration.
If nothing is equiped as throwable, could also be thrown in a pinch.
Also flipping between 1h and 2h versions would be great (1h- lower penetration, no defensive bonus, but one handed. 2h- two handed, but has penetration bonus and chance to deflect melee attacks).

Seriously, spears are extremely versatile and more games need to have them.

Finally, always a fan of these in stone soup
