New Shoes! Heelys! #30956
Purpose of change
Describe the solution
It adds two new items, roller_shoes_off and roller_shoes_on, as well as editing some item groups so it can spawn in. Thanks to some help from other people, the shoes take around 500 moves to transform as well as displaying a message.
The roller shoes (off) are essentially just sneakers, nothing special there but the roller shoes (on) are roller skates that are essentially similar to sneakers, except they have the ability to roll like roller skates, they lack the waterproof flag that roller skates have, but still have the balance flag.
After Kevin's suggestions, I made a new flag "ROLLER_ONE" that reduces the speed bonus to 0.85 and the speed penalty on non-flat terrain to 1.1, as well as adding a flag to "REQUIRES_BALANCE" with the flag "HEELIES" that modify the dice roll by +2 I believe? As well as changing the name from "roller shoes" to a more recognizable name of "heelys" I also removed steel from the materials list, as it seemed like the steel in these wouldn't be enough to even be scrap.
Yeah, this was pointed out in the discord about the characteristics, but I had no idea how to edit it in such a way that their performance would be different from skates.
Alright thank you! I edited my top post to include the changes, and yeah, I dunno if I should or not have avoided the trademarked terms cause I didn't know y'all stance on using trademarked terms... I edited it to have a more recognizable name now.
After some discussion with Kevin, I reduced the cost of movement on non-flat terrain to 1.1 from 1.55
Also these videos were brought up in the discord, and I'm gonna post em here cause I was suggested too, and they seem to be interesting, at least for future reference or so.

No, it is slightly faster than running, as linked in the above video, but isn't as fast as rollerskates. I don't think I could do coasting right now, as it might require a lot of C++ coding.
