The timbered hunting lodge is great, as is the entire craftng system. The herb drying racks and the wooden tanning vats are great features, I was just hoping for the leatherworking bonus, which is 4% in my case.
My biggest challenge was the 30 iron ingots, though I made 8 of them by smelting down 4 iron scythes from godsends in a forge I was able to make, from godsends, while looking for iron deposits.
I am having a blast and look forward to release. I usually play about 12-14 hours a day.
