New content is cool! An I would love anything really. But as you ask here is what I think is important for an bigger audience.
The first step
The combat system is not that complex, well the crafting of weapon is but not really the combat. There is several reasons. The main reason to little mobs. maybe not every mob need a fancy AI just som personalty. After that there is too little weapon, they are all slings. But what about close combat, or using the bombs, we don’t really build anything anymore for defense. To be honest the tank is useless and so this the rage and agrro brews.
I miss the good old hunts in EA it was sure a slaughter but we did it with finess.
So in first stage of combat oriented content would be, mobs, weapons, different combat mechanic that Force us to build protections. Why blocks that do things in combat. like traps och machines that is need to build in order to close the portals stop the mob assault. Something. Maybe add more skill like brews. Hunting down the weather to kill elemental mobs.
Secon stage. focus on random generating dungeons and world’s that are instable. this will give player a chance to obtain all colors and also give them content that is renewed every so often.
The dungeons is a simpler room cobinations and trap mechanic that will let you devs work on the tools needed for the fourth stage. Dungeons could be everything from buildings to catacombs with networks of tunnels. But the important thing is there is a reward in the end that will be somewhat Rare and hard to obtan. Or several items that will be a low chance of obtaing in the end chest reward.
Third stage Minni bosses and world bosses a stronger mob that requires players to group up to kill. And will reward unique items. Maybe tool and weapon skinns unlockes that maybe also require qubits to unlock.
Fourth stage. Titans and themed mobs and bosses for it.
The nice thing about this is it’s broken up in to different updates where other building updates can come in between. Like new blocks. Interior blocks to make the homes a bit more home. Or farming. Animals. Blueprints and anything really
