I was wondering if anyone had any interesting strategies they used to cooperate with friends/guilds/teams in Boundless, with a specific interest in crafting. Here are two images of a strategy we’ve been using in The Haven Collective, a lil group of my friends that have been playing for a couple weeks:
The number of torches next to the supplies is how many to drop off, and the number of torches next to the tools is how many you take once you’ve dropped that off. So in this case, 9 copper bars, 5 fibrous leaves, and 4 sap dropped off means you can take any 4 copper tools from the rack. (if you want a spanner or a grapple, you add the supplies next to those in addition.)
This makes mass crafting kind of a group activity for us!
I’ve been handling all the basic tools up to iron, and one of my friends has been doing a similar thing with food. Reducing the mass craft into its most basic, efficient components, and spreading the difficulty around to create a crafting level that’s like a bulk craft amount of gathering, but with a mass craft efficiency.
Do you guys do anything like this with your groups? I’m especially curious if you have found ways to formalize trading for forged goods among friends who have different amounts of time to spend on the game, but all need nice tools.
