Ironwood/hornbeam inconsistency

Postby Throttle » Mon Jun 16, 2014 6:58 am

So according to the documentation, ironwood and hornbeam is the same and is known by its white heartwood.

In-game we have two different types of wood, however: hornbeam and ironwood. They each have their own copse object, logs and blocks/planks.

If I craft an axe with a haft of ironwood, it becomes a 'white-hafted' axe. If I craft it out of hornbeam, it becomes a 'dusky-hafted' axe. However, hornbeam logs are also described as white.

Is there a difference, and if so, is there meant to be?

I've noticed the opposite. Any time I work with hornbeam it's always been white, and ironwood has always been dusky. Icly i think it's played off of hornbeam being the more matured/aged version of the tree while Ironwood is still a younger tree.

Can it be randomized?

By the way... Why does Mithrandur sound like a player's name for before year 2000...

It might have been the other way around with the colours.
