First off, great game developers. I thoroughly enjoy this game so far, keep on going. Eventually I’ll become a supporter, it’s a great game to invest and help out with.
Anyway, so the resource gathering, specifically mining is hard for new players. I would suggest pushing back some spawns to a lower level for the higher tiered nodes, in this case I’m speaking for the first two levels, which I personally think should be Coal, Copper (Especially) and Iron (or which ever tier is next from Copper, Iron right??). The (re)spawn rates for them are low, which is understandable, but they are not abundant from what I’ve seen in the beginning levels. Forcing players to go lower. This morning, I had to help a player acquire copper from the 8th floor. I would attempt to increase the amount of starting materials in the first few floors then gradually increase with higher tiered materials and so on. Next thing would be the placement of the nodes. Plenty of spots to mine said materials are within rocks that cannot be mined, making it hard to acquire and sometimes when they are mine-able the contents would disappear.
I know this game is in Alpha, I’m not waving my fist around, just some things to point out as for my current feedback. It’s a great game overall though fellas. Keep up the great work. Now, I’m hopping back on!
