1.) Items degrading on death. Having an entire stack of brand new tools ALL get hit with the penalty is my primary pet peeve. As others have stated I can understand the tools in hand taking the hit but every tool in inventory, nope. I do not have much luck in finding gems or titanium so losing that hard won gem tool is exceedingly painful. I see the reduction skill line and at my current level it costs 42 points for a 10% reduction, not gonna happen.
2.) Like others I do enjoy building but that multi-plot shell is only a shell. I have seen many players put their chisels to work creating furniture and some of it is quite creative but that gorgeously chiseled chair looks like a throne for giants. Some basic furnishings would go a long way towards filling in those shells.
3.) Ladders please!
4.) This may be a bit out there but how about something along the lines of a fixed emplacement weapon, a ballista or catapult. I don’t know how many times I have been standing atop a structure and wished for something of that nature when that roadrunner is just out of range of my ruby slingbow.
5.) Lava is very hot, I get it, it is molten stone after all. However I frequently encounter two issues with lava; Getting out of it and walling it off. I’m old and have carpal tunnel, my skill with grapples is pathetic and I do my best to avoid getting into a lava situation if at all possible but it happens and the damage tick leaves me just enough time to realize I am boned. If no other armor make it into the game please give me some asbestos booties. Also, ala minecraft, a way to douse the surrounding lava with water so you can at least avoid instant death.
6.) If the cuttles get a homing missile give me one too. Not always having a handy tree to hide behind can be irksome.
7.) I do not know if it is just me but it feels like the reload/cooldown times on slingbow shots are a bit random. I will go four or five shots in a row on a sapphire bow with great reliability then nothing for two or three seconds. Then get one or two shots and another two or three second delay. My neighbors know when it happens and my walls are well insulated.
8.) Ladders Please!
9.) Charging spark is like watching a slow roast bbq. 10 compressed soft coal and the core is worn out. That’s like WW1 airplane engine reliability with a 3 hour time to failure. I don’t mind repairing things but even a Yugo is more reliable.
10.) A way to transport water. I would like some water features like a fountain or a pond near my structures but have no way of creating a water feature without building near water. Piping or buckets or water tanks or troughs.
11.) The wood edging on the glass blocks is nifty and defines the block well but I would like to see a method to smooth out that element to create a wall of glass rather than have a series of edged blocks for windows.
12.) Ladders please!
13.) I seem to spend most of my time staying just ahead of the resource curve in regards to heat (coal), spark (well … spark), and tools (mostly from death penalty). If the death penalty was adjusted to affect just tools in hand I think the balance would be just right.
14.) Not too often but often enough to notice I will take damage if I clip through terrain or after rubber banding. It has not yet killed me as I have maxed health but someone who has not gone that route will definitely notice and possibly die as a result.
15.) I like to think of myself as someone who would help others and have tried to come up with a way to set up an “aid” station near my structures. Short of being able to friend everybody on the server it would be nice to be able to have an option of making a storage bin that anyone could access if they found themselves without tools or healing.
16.) Ladders Please!
17.) Storage containers with greater than 4 slots please.
