From when i first started playing it took me 30 minutes of constant running and scouting every valley before i found my first rock…
And guess what, that first rock didn’t even give me enough stone to make my Stone hatchet i had 4/5, so i had to walk around for another 12minutes to find another Rock to mine…
This is beyond ridiculous…
It pretty much just kills the game out right for me currently, and i love games like this!!
Even with how rare rocks are, wood piles seem to be rarer and even more necessary…
Try to collect a few thousand wood to build a decent sized base that might just keep you safe from a bandit pack.
If you have to collect that from trees that will take you around 45 minutes of constant chopping and running between trees to collect 1000 wood, around 125 trees, all while being extremely vulnerable in the open and not being able to watch you back.
1000 wood make you about a 4 platform 2 story house
In my opinion Rock should not only spawn in mountainous terrain, but spawn there more frequently then the valleys/plains and they should carry more resources per spawn and over all have way more spawns, 4-5 times more
Wood piles have an adequate amount in them, but need to be more common with, 3-4 times more spawns.
Animals arnt too bad currently, even though they are rare at times, you don’t need much of what they can give you. After 2 hours on a single session i found myself ignoring them as i had all the meat, cloth and fat i could possibly need at the time.
But at the start you can conceivably starve to death before you find that first pig. So meaby a 50% increased frequency wouldn’t be bad.
I could deal with the horrible community and constant bandits if it wasn’t for this issue of nearly non existent natural resources. When starting, your only hope is to sprint around and be ignored while desperately trying to find those start resources, hide in some secluded corner of the map, or under a rock to log out, log in and repeat.
After a few hours of this you might be able to start a base that can survive an attack.
