Nov 2: The weapon popups now display the class of weapon

Darn, I worked two days to find that information, now it's given.

Does it have any other effect but the messages? Is anything planned?

Sorry, Muh. Just an oversight.

As for your questions: nothing else, nothing planned.

Aw, that's too bad.

Still like it though. Adds a certain element of polish to the game as a whole.

I don't even know what sort of "something else" might happen that you two are disappointed isn't happening. Care to give me an example?

What I think they mean is, different types of weapons in the subcategories being more/less effective against certain enemies. It's easily workable, but I don't know if you want to do all the work for that, and for most enemies/weapons it'd just be arbitrary.

I was thinking something like AD&D skeletons being weak to blunt weapons and resistant to pointy ones. It could add flavor to some specific foes.
I can't think of something it would apply to in the city right now, but maybe some future boss could have weakness to whips.

Also: I just saw the tweeter note, I hope you are feeling better :)

This probably wouldn't be impossible. Certainly not a universal thing, but I could see some monsters having weapon-specific resists or weaknesses. Especially more esoteric critters.

Of course, it would probably end up meaning that there's a lot of monsters resistant to certain melee weapons. Maybe if we kept it minor (say, 10% either way) it wouldn't be too bad. If nothing else, it's half done because we've got the weapons (mostly) down.
