Gem trees have been a part of Blockheads for a good amount of time, spicing up the sky with their rarity, beauty, and utility. Sky islands are also great places to find pesky vines, but that doesn’t mean they have to be pesky. I am here to suggest adding gem vines.
Section 1: Where would these be?
Gem vines would be a complementary addition to gem trees, near the bottom/middle of the sky island similar to normal vines.
Section 2: Would these be overpowered?
As previously stated, these are meant to be complementary, but uselessness is never fun. Vines would grow at a similar rate as gem trees spawn actual gems. Instead of dropping whole gems, gem vines would drop gem shards (I forgot the exact name, I’m sorry). This would allow for some form of usefulness, and it would aesthetically complement gem trees.
Section 3: Are these really that necessary?
The answer to the above question is, of course, no, but that doesn’t devalue gem vines in any sense. The success of many sandbox games lies within their details and the variety of blocks and building options, and this is simply another detail that gives Blockheads a but of character.
Section 4: To conclude…
Those are the reasons I believe that gem vines would be a lovely addition to Blockheads, and that’s all I have to say. Please ask questions in the replies section if you’re confused or interested.
