No offence, but, actually, every time i left my base for something i feel like playing dark soul, but whitout the good and balanced gameplay.
For exemple, i explored a half burned mineshaft (a rift opened in middle of it) i put a torch and a fire started instatnly x_O hee ? what ? Torch burn out in 5 min but are able to set on fire wood plank ? there is lava 5 block away and my torch set the wood on fire ?
Exploring nether whit an iron armor ? getting 2 shot by a barehand pigmen. Archer are more likely gatling whit a rate of fire so high that you almost can't come closer (in water your just fucked). Sometime pigmen agress for no reason at all.
In my opinion difficulty is a good thing, when she's balanced. Here i feel just like the game try to f*** me in every possible way. So, i stay in base and build...
BTW, i disabled spice of life. Finally could eat food and whit ungeroverhaul it still bother the player. In side concequences got my framerate back (how is that related x_O )
about building, automated dust sieving, added wind turbine, starting stacking upgrade on autosieve...
Wind turbine are great, they maybe give a bit too mutch power, but, whit limited ressources they are almost impossible to maximise. Whit ressource abundance you can start put them higer (slowly), multiply them etc... but i never feel like i can build everything whitout taking care of my energy.
About sieve, i have tremendous amout of aluminium who i have no use at all, sky stone dust as no use, really short in gold.
Crops disapear for no related reason
I come in my garden and see seed and stick around a not worked dirt block. At first i though it was mob but, no.
