I know this has been mentioned before at some point, but I felt like it’s an even more relevant topic with the introduction of exoworlds. One thing that I noticed is unless you get to the T7, T8 exoworlds in the first day or two, you pretty much miss out on getting a decent amount of the special blocks. The atlas shows there are still hotspots around but navigating the swiss cheese planet seemed almost a waste of time trying to find those last blocks that were missed by people before you.
What if we could forge an atlas to help us locate those last few seams in the hotspots? Getting too specific and pointing N/S/E/W might be too difficult, but how hard would it be to implement something that basically told you to increase or decrease altitude if you’re within say 10 blocks of a seam?
Adding this feature could give players without AoE tools a chance to find seams here and there in areas previously decimated by AoE tools, giving it a cave exploration type feel. Because I know i’ve definitely made a cave or two during my mining trips by going full sprinkler.
Forging atlases could be expanded to magnet and glow as well, making them valuable offhands. Atlas shops could sell forged versions of completed atlases, another addition to the economy. What do you guys think?
