PC The Vault Key - A Hardmode Alternative to the Money Trough

Discussion in 'Items' started by Commander Crocket, Nov 9, 2015.


Should this be included in the game?

    In accordance with @Safeman's recent inclusion into the Re-Logic team, I feel as if it is only fair that they also received an in-game item in their honour. Thus, my first suggestion will be a simple and concise one. My proposed item, the Vault Key.

    After defeating a mechanical boss, this item would be available for purchase from the Skeleton Merchant for the price of one platinum coin.

    In a similar fashion to the Money Trough already present within the game, when used, it summons a sentient safe. In order to distinguish it from its pre-hardmode counterpart, the summoned entity is earthbound (i.e. it cannot fly), and can also function as an NPC - it strolls around the location it was summoned in, and can even be talked to.

    Tooltip: Summons the Safe Man.

    In-game quotes:
    - "Have you heard the one about the Mimic? That joke was so funny, I could hardly contain myself. No, seriously, my chest hurt."
    - "Need to stash your items somewhere secure? Leave it to me! Safe is my middle, er, first name!"
    - "Full inventory? Getting bashed? Leave your things with me, and save your cash!"
    - "So a rivet walked into an item store, and the manager said, "Sorry pal, we're locking up." Get it? Locking up?"

    (Unintentional Fallout/Borderlands reference is unintentional.)

    Sprites welcome. :)

    I like the idea of having it be a little NPC for differentiation from the month. SUPPORT

    Those jokes piss me off here.
    They will do the same in-game.
    10/10, support for really bad joking safe.

    If anything it deserves to be added for the jokes.

    This is a great idea!
    Maybe it can be implemented in 1.3.1. to celebrate safeman's promotion to community manager

    That was the initial idea, yes. :)

    I fully support this. The only question is how long would it take to despawn?

    It should function similarly to the Money Trough in that respect, despawning after three minutes.

    I'm pretty sure if she wants anything for her in the game she'll request it herself.

    Perhaps so, but one can dream, yes?

    Your suggestion make me think about
    No seriously, It's cool I totally want it in game.
    One stupid question: will he fly or he will fall into the lava while you're flying?
