It’s planned that Builders will eventually have the ability to create blueprints of their builds (not sure what form that will take though!). So they will potentially have the ability to showcase houses and sell blueprints for them - sort of a realtor/builder.
I’m not certain what is planned for explorers though… hopefully something novel!
Yep, that’s my argument … and yes, I read your post ( I read everything on here - always have done) … I just don’t agree with your suggestion. FYI your suggestion was very close to the original proposal for the profession system. It was deemed to be too restrictive for the soloists/generalists in the game. I know … it’s a game promoting community interaction… but it also needs to appeal to the wider audience, and not pigeon-hole people into fixed builds, which seems to be what you’re pushing for.
I like your choice of words here … “acquire the resources” … this doesn’t have to be via mining. Purchasing is a form of acquisition (whether you like it or not).
There does seem to be a little disparity between your arguments in this thread and your “Boundless future” one. They’re a bit contradictory IMO…
To understand my reasoning a little more regarding the differing toughness of rocks, I’d suggest doing a little reading up on this site … https://wonderopolis.org/wonder/how-do-rocks-get-their-colors
TL;DR - Rocks basically get their colours from different compositions of minerals (and other factors), so that would explain the planned implementation of their differing toughness.
I’m pretty sure it’s both first … “Boundless is an epic voxel sandbox MMO…”
I think it would also be beneficial to do some reading up on both past dev logs and other discussions around proposed/planned features, as your current gripes are with how the game currently plays as opposed to how this current implementation fits into the overall picture.
I think this raises a good point in that people come to Boundless expecting it to be exactly like Minecraft. So, just for clarity Boundless is not Minecraft 2.0 … It’s Boundless
Also … Please keep the language clean - this is a family friendly forum
