It was a rough idea. It can be modified and balanced. I really just wanted to explore a different avenue that involved separating mass farming from encumberance in general.
Immune to fall damage and lava would be necessary. Idea can’t work without this. The “mule” needs some sort of protection against in-game elements that aren’t up to par. Like weird under mesh teleports and bad pathing
The thrall harvesting can be done without easily enough considering you can just farm yourself an place inside the inventory.
Maybe a radial option that you can set to “hold” or “load follower” on the bearer that moves items that would’ve gone into your inventory goes directly to your thrall while you harvest once activated. Similar to follow but with “items moved to thrall” happening at the same time
Won’t even need to change their attack behaviour at all or the code involving that
since it’s very true a player would be far better at farming quickly instead of buggy a.i
Bearer tiers could have different inventory slots available and slight increases in HP by tiers.
T1 = 50 slots
T2 = 100 slots
T3= 150 slots.
T4 = 200 slots
Could put a bearer inside a bearer for a larger mass farming run if needed. Potential for 400 inventory slot farming run. With a send home command that would return them to last guard position after some time passes.
while you place another bearer and continue your farming run with bearer #2 (pve people)
