I was a few points into a post I was writing up that covered a similar concept. I cancelled it and figured most people could find it on youtube.
I’d encourage a new video for people who know how to gather and have a gist for how the game works, but don’t know the strategy for starting out. I had a 10 step program to establishing yourself on a newly wiped server.
- get basic tools/weapons
- get food (use cloth for cloth armor)
- build small storage, furnace, campfire, workbench for your farming (suggesting remote locations)
- save up enough wood/ore to build 1 foundation w/ metal door(+1 foundation and pillar for in front)
- Farm wood/ore for pipe shotgun/shells and bow/arrows
- Save up for more advanced building
- Farm blueprints
- build more advanced housing
- build more advanced weapons/armor
Just something along those lines.
