Heavy Armor Variants
Essentially heavy versions of armor with higher defense stats.

I've been playing some games where armor can get to the point where a heavy version of the first tier becomes almost as strong as a light version of the second highest tier armor. So I thought of an idea (Not really my idea, clearly got it from something else lol) where you can make heavy armor variants of the armors and clothes in the game. For example, there can be normal grass armor, but then where you get to the higher levels, you can make the heavy version, where it gives more defense value in exchange for more weigh down, material cost, and bulkier look (if possible). The same can go for the clothes, leather, and bone armor. I understand if this idea would get rejected, as the bone armor would probably be more than too much than it currently already is. I mean imagine like Master Heavy Bone Armor. That would be insanity lol.

I will be revising armor values when I update the combat system (after upcoming creature patches) and Artisan and Master armor will be likely revised to provide better protection. Adding yet more variations I think may be too confusing but I'll think about it more when I work on combat.

I think some thoughts need to go into armors as a whole. Because they really don't offer much protection and you get most reward out of leathers. You get high stats, good defense and still very light.
Bone armor is very heavy weight, the defense is 10% more than leather, and the stats are about the same or lower.

I feel if you are going to wear the heavier armor, you should get more defense from them as their weights are very high. Also I feel like grass armor is next to worthless for all things. Maybe you mean it to be that way, but I would like to see some type of use for it. Cloth is pretty worthless also.

While i agree bone armor should give a little more for the weight it is and agree with the leather i don't think cloth is worthless as far as a stat suit.You might not get as much stats from cloth compared to leather but the ratio of people that scav to hunt is pretty big when it comes to high end.As far as what the defense of cloth is I don't know the numbers.
