"finished" being pretty subjective I guess, considering its eternal alpha. Still dont see harm in an attempt at raising player base, even if its slight, more money more incentive to "finish"?

loftar wrote:We have discussed similar things ourselves (wall scaling and such), but one of the problems is that if you don't have the ability to destroy things once inside, people will just line their walls with piles of wood or whatever cheap thing you can't past without destroying it. Contrariwise, if you can destroy things, then obviously walls are just completely meaningless and anyone is liable to destruction at any time. The middle ground between these options is less than obvious.

Would being able to within some limits pick the point you get to after scaling make it better?(You throw a rope somewhere from top of wall and slide down it or something like that.) Or would that just make people leave a huge space between the wall and woodpile or whatever wall?

Or if wall-scaling would give you bunch of "teleports" that allow you to get around non-wall objects.
Come to think of it would it be crazy if with some effort and time you could climb/teleport over almost any non wall-object?
Or be allowed to build poles that allow you to "teleport" anywhere within it's range?(Might be nice even outside of burglary)

or like lachlaan suggested

[*] All livestock animals now have three lives each. If you "kill" a domestic animal in combat, it will instead become knocked out and lose one life. Knocked out livestock get back up again after 12 hours, with one life less. Livestock animals die permanently once the third life is lost.


I tried knocking out my bull thinking i might be able to lift it like what we could do with a corpse but I cant. Would it be possible to allow the knocked out animals be lift-able?
