Actually, i should be able to outrun a deer in the long term, but not in speed.
One of the many articles you can find about it :
Well, it's uncommon, but growing. QWERTY is based on american obsolete arbitrary typewritters settings, while bépo or dvorak are based on actual studies of anatomy, usage and ergonomy.
A small chart about "classic" french keyboard vs bépo layout :
It's kind of like Esperanto language, or Linux system, or organic food... When you really look at them, you can't understand why it's not more popular. Well actually you can : politic and economic powers enforcement.
That's it, just wanted to scratch the surface for general knowledge: Everyone is free the dig deeper.
Maybe i was blind, but i did look for very basic tools and i couldn't find them.
After a day, i logged back ingame, and i could see them. How weird... It's certainly much easier like this. I wonder maybe the filter was stuck, or i input a "space" or "e" or whatever, and i was to tired to notice it.
I've upgraded 2 times my dominium now, built some stuff, started a life...
Anyway, i feel the game is still tedious because of food needs, and how grindy everything is. Too much gathering for too little result, to my taste at least.
Not sure if i enjoy it. I want to, as this kind of games is very uncommon... Time will tell.
I played Haven&Hearth, tried Salem, Tree of Life, and plenty of "normal MMOG", and so many games so different since 1999,
I've bought the game in 2015 and i play from time to time to see improvements. So, i'm a kind of "false noob".
This week i came back to "really play" to build a small house with a garden etc., and if i can feel a great improvement on the map, icones, objects ingame, 3D toons... i feel the overall experience is quite boring, or annoying.
I bought the game but i'm not Premium.
Everything feels so slow... I need to gather so many ressources to build so very basic stuff. I was surprised i couldn't have a stone knife, i needed copper, so i needed anvil, hammer etc. So before i could get skin to build a basic small Dominion i had to run around a lot to gather all the ressources.
I died 3 or 4 times in the process (wolves and bears), each time loosing all my stuff, it's not a big deal i can accept that part from a game, but then i had to run faaaaaaar away to find my body. I couldn't, and didn't want to build next to my spawn point : it was already built by other players.
Also the food need is crazy, it seems i have to eat one week of a full familly real life food, but every day and for myself. I've found this part extremly annoying. I ate apples, grappes, mushrooms, eggs, pumpkins, breads from random loots... When i had my first meat from stoned rabbit, i didn't find anyway to cook it. Anyway, i prefer to eat vegetables instead of meat.
When i could at last build my dominion and a bed to set a respawn point, i died because of a bear hidden under a tree, and i left the game, not willing to run 1 hour or maybe more to find my "home".
Maybe i did many things wrong, but that's what new players may do too, and they may not stay too. Oh, and i didn't meet anyone, and the chat was empty all the time (not sure, maybe 3-4 hours of played time).
I think the time before removing Dominion is really too short for small groups or solo player. If i simply go on Holidays 1 week, my little settlement is lost.
I think the time should be doubled, and we need some "feed Dominion" to make it double again.
So the basic Dominion is removed after 3+14 days, and if i feed it with some things, it can last 3+28 days.
That way, it's still enough to clear ghost town, without destroying casual gamers, or moving gamers unable to log sometime for more than one week.
Increase should be small but noticeable with better Dominion. Something like this :
Basic dominium 3+14
Small dominium 3+22
Medium dominium 3+28
Large dominium 3+44
Noble dominium 3+64
Doubled from Basic to Medium, from Medium to Large, and also doubled from Small to Large. And x2 if fed to the maximum, so the biggest town could stay up to 2 months without log-in.
It's just my opinion. What's yours ?
