Just a quick question. Exactly how are the spawn points for resources determined? Are they preset? Do they spawn depending on the location of players? Allow me to explain. In one game, a group of friends and I decided to go to the north end of the map known as Sweden (see map linked below). We were trying to find a place where we would not get raided (or as much). There were not players in Sweden, so we thought we found the perfect place.
However, it turned out that were were absolutely NO RESOURCES besides a few tress. No animals, no wood stock piles, and no mine-able rocks. Eventually, we had to abandon the area because it was too difficult to live their. Not from the raiders, but from the lack of resources.
Is the northern section purposely sparse in resources?
