I'd like to see Malachite as a golem/stone material. As a stone material, there would be little need to worry about balance issues since they're not used for weapons/armor. As for being used for golems, well there's things like diamond and octiron golems wandering around that hit a LOT harder than a soft copper ore would.
We do have copper though as a more practical material, even though it's pretty bad.

If possible I'd like to get malachite's neat band pattern to show up in-game but I don't think that's possible for golems and items. Probably could make unique walls but the idea of malachite WALLS seems a bit silly.

I like malachite

I also like galvorn or dwarven steel.

You might be able to create banding purposefully by exploiting the gradient in the m-colours, and maybe abusing some of these techniques.

Malachite and galvorn sound good to me.

No no, making new sprites with banding would be easy. What I meant is I'm pretty sure you can't modify the existing sprites only when the item is made of malachite so that you get the neat bands, so that existing items get malachite bands when SoCM'd to malachite.

Well you might be able to do it by having separate sprites for malachite versions of things and having code for changing sprites to the banded sprite but that is a lot of work for one material.

But regarding stones, I'd love to have Malachite in IVAN, since I think IVAN doesn't have any green material yet (besides vomit).


Though I'm still all for making Valpurium green like in LIVAN. It seems far more fitting for some magical Frog God metal than the current golden color. Gold is too cliche anyways.

Yes! Please, let's make Valpurium green.

Golden Valpurium is weird and indistiguishable from gold. I find the green one much nicer and more fitting.
