    I will soon be preparing ground to make myself a house. I already can feed myself for a lifetime (got a fishing rod, lot of earthworms and lures and fish jumping out of the water).

    Good stuff, Fish will get you by for a while. Especially now that it feeds better.

    Just want to point out: There are hardly any unclaimed mines left. Be prepared to be disappointed. Many people have complained on the forums about how much they've searched. I have also searched a good Regional Map size of the map to find nothing. Most mines are either claimed between towns or claimed and abandoned. You might just have to wait until they add the new super grids to the map or change the system at all. Tons of people do not have any metal, especially around my area.
    Really? In the last map people were finding mines constantly. It was only the main supergrid that had them depleted.

    Yeah. This map is almost bone-dry.


    Also, be careful not to eat too much fish guys. The bonus FEP will help bring the amount needed down, but too much fish will increase your intelligence too much and make it harder to increase other skills.

    Yep me and x-quake had our cows stolen. Now I would like to see them try. We built palisades around everything and keep the gates locked anytime we are offline or out of sight range. Not to mention my claim keeps people who dont have criminal skills at least 1 unit away from the fences.

    For fish, only cook it if it's the type of FEP you want. Otherwise eat it raw, fish doesn't have bad effects when eaten raw like other meat does.

    Go near the fire, right click it.

    Now Craft > Cooking > Meat and you're done.

    If you are LUCKY enough to stumble upon some minerals that are left from the mine-grab, then sure. You will need to have a jar and some rustroot to make rustroot extract for prospecting. You'll need a decent amount of Perception * Exploration to see rustroot while foraging, mind you.

    A decent amount? You need at least 400 Perception * Exploration. That's more than decent.

    I can't remember exactly, but I had like 25 Exploration and 18 perception when I started seeing them pretty well. Or maybe it was 30? Either way, not insane but a bit of work.


    And, yeah, it is a lot of work. Especially because it is mostly for naught when mines are very scarce or claimed.

    Yeah. A lot of people were griefing with them. Jorb hopes this will make it harder for those people to create the initial post for fencing people in.

    Although it might help, it is a bit pricey to make 5 ropes. That is 50 strings, more than the insane amount we keep at all times at our place. We do have tons of bones, though. Good thing we already have some corner-posts we plan to extend upon instead of building new-new ones.

    I doubt it will really stop griefing, it just fucks over new people and people with certain locations.

    I live between 2 cliffs, this means that I need 4 initial posts if I want 1 gate on each side or 3 if I want to wall off a side.

    If I chose 3 that would mean that in addition to the 300 blocks of wood I would need:
    30 pieces of leather
    60 pieces of bone material
    and 150 pieces of string

    Fuck that.
    This really feels like it was thought through in 5 min.

    To get seeds you need to find Wild Windsown Weeds or WWWs, or someone who has the seeds could give them to you and you can keep replanting them.

    Best tactic it to run for the nearest body of water, find a spot where the shallows are large or very irregular so he gets stuck. If no water is nearby... good luck!

    I just run to my Log Cabin, works every time because everything is fenced off.
