A horseshoes pin is a piece of recreation furniture that provides dexterity recreation when used by colonists, It is the cheapest to construct of all the recreation-related buildings, and tied for the quickest to produce.

It is the equivalent to the Neolithic hoopstone ring, and only available to factions of Medieval tech level or above.

Acquisition[edit]

Horseshoes pins can only be constructed by New Arrivals. They require Stuff 10 Stuff (Metallic/Woody/Stony) and 100 ticks (1.67 secs) of work. New Tribes can never construct horseshoes pins, and instead have the exclusive ability to construct hoopstone rings.

Regardless of the material used, a horseshoe pin has no quality level. Once placed it can be uninstalled and then reinstalled in a new location.

Summary[edit]

Up to three colonists can use a single horseshoes pin at once, taking turns throwing horseshoes at it. Each instance of this activity lasts 4,000 ticks (1.11 mins), and it increases Recreation need at a rate of ?? per second. It provides Dexterity Play-type recreation.

To be usable, a horseshoe pin must have a standable spot five spaces away. It also needs line of sight to it in a straight line (many structures like chairs, lamps, and tables, do not block line of sight). Colonists can throw through a held open doorway into an adjacent room while playing horseshoes. Mood bonuses for room impressiveness are determined by the thrower's location.

A pawn must have a Manipulation capacity above 0% to play.

Playing horseshoes increases the player's shooting skill at a rate of 0.003 XP per 1 tick (0.02 secs), or 0.18 XP per second.

Analysis[edit]

The horseshoes pin is the second weakest of all recreation objects, tied with the Chess table and the Hoopstone ring with a recreation power of only 100%. The only recreation object worse is the Game-of-Ur board, with a meager recreation power of 80%. Because of its low cost and ability to slowly raise colonist shooting skill, it is often advisable to build a horseshoe pin early after starting a colony.
