I got this game when it First appeared was lil disappointed with how long its taking to get built the concept is amazing and far better than minecraft has to offer. I have 2 questions why is it the Stone hammer burns out so fast as well as the Torch only gives what looks like 3-4 squares of light. Also why is there no /general /shout long range chat optional ?
durability for tools and dev responses regarding the durability are in this thread. the mechanics are out but everything isn’t balanced yet
This info is for those people looking to efficiently save their resources or those that wanna know how long a tool lasts before breaking.
I was curious to know how long stone tools last compared to iron since they both seem to have the same amount of durability. So I spent some of my time today to record some data on them. Here's what I got so far(going to try and record the other types of material too):
Wood(7 hits to break stone): ~59 blocks ~413 hits before breaking

Response from Luke:
Great topic and some really good suggestions here. Durability and breakable items was always going to cause a certain amount of conflict, because it completely goes against the norm. But this topic has certainly given us something to think about.
What is clear from this conversation is that the current durability values feel unfair to you. We’ll be monitoring this and look at where the system needs balancing or maybe make items a bit more durable. However, it is worth noting that not all elements are in place and this system will need further balancing once these features are added:
Progression - Upgrades to make your character more efficient (item durability, crafting speed, mining speed, etc)
Crafting Randomness - Crafted tools will have base stats which will be randomised in a limited range based on your crafting skill level.
Early Acces (game is not done yet)
Actually I’m pretty sure they were planning on not having a global chat at all, which is great for immersion
Are you using the basic torch or the “torch” torch? The one that is made from cloth gives off quite a bit of light actually, it’s really nice.
