I have some suggestions about getting water.
Firstly, there are many lakes/ponds in the map while I only can take water from wells/fountains but I need to find/build one to do it. This seems illogical because the things I would do when I see a lake/pond is jumping in, swimming and taking some water.
Secondly, why can I take water with my bare hand and get 1-2 ? And how can I hold them without some containers like buckets or pots? I know this will take many pots to hold 50 water but at least, you can make the pot to be a tool to get water instead of using bare hand.
Take water from ponds/lakes
We're working on it, currently. Re-working many stuff like that, correcting mistakes, adding depth to our craft system and ... logic to some moments too.
Nonetheless, drinking water taken from a lake is a bad idea, that's why people in real life use wells for this purpose.
