    That they'll only be effective at specific ranges.

    This game is far more important than people appreciate.

    At this stage, I am treating throwing knives basically as arrows/bolts. There's a chance to hit or miss a target, but there is no lowering of damage as distance increases. This may change when I get to balancing combat, but for now I'm keeping it simple. Decreasing damage with distance is just a small change in calculations anyway. Also the combat area will mostly be quite small, so there will be no large distances to account for.

    I don't mean a relationship between amount of distance traveled and damage. Throwing knives spin as they travel and it makes a difference whether a target is hit with the butt of the knife vs. the pointy end (ie where is it in its spin cycle).

    Oh, okay, but in that case the one throwing the knife can rotate the knife around if he can judge the distance correctly? It must me similar to throwing axes, I guess?

    When I was a kid I bought a dagger at a renaissance fair (using an 18-year old as a straw buyer) but then my parents took it away when I came home. So please don't have any small blades in your game or else it will cause psychological distress for me. Thx in advance.

    You can throw a throwing knife without spin 15+ m.

    If it spins, you've already failed.

    ACTUALLY

    Bo-shuriken is a throwing knife. They don't spin.

    ACTUALLY

    The so called "throwing star" was more often used as caltrops rather than thrown. Knife, needle, spike etc. types are the superior choice for actual throws.

    ACTUALLY

    Even the star shaped hira-shuriken doesn't actually spin when you throw it properly.

    ...

    Now please change the name of the game to "Throwing knife simulator 2020"

    You certainly meant “Throwing knife simulator 2040”.

    On a more serious note though, I can see that after all of the feedback above, I don’t have to change a thing. That’s how all feedback should be!

    Similar to throwing axes (any spinning weapon with a single killing direction), the expert knife or axe tosser can alter the amount of wrist snap to some degree, at least at typical alley-fighting range, to alter the spin amount. A great deal of practice is required to learn it, however (as best I rercall).

    A multi-headed throwing knife can solve all problems.

    Should be approximately the same size.

    It will only run on DOS 5.0 and upwards.

    Man, you gotta upgrade. This is a next-gen title.

    I theoretically could, but why would I?

    Save time? What are you using now? Making everything from scratch? I should probably read this thread... I saw the OP and was already at full mast.
