Labor alts~ Shadow clones

We general use an army of labor alts for just about anything in veteran & major play.

Shadow clones.
    A shadow clone should use a SIMPLE item that is easyer then the creating process of making an alt
    The item would be used on your fire that would produce a shadow clone of yourself.
    Shadow clones would have the same stats and hunger levels as the maker.

    IDEAL use for shadow clone
      -Shadow clones would be ideally used for small task around the farm, cutting tree's, leveling dirt, and w/e more.

    TO prevent super army and never leaving your base
      -Shadow clones would have a time limit (2hours) & range from how far they can be from the original fire (11x11).

    TO prevent body blocking and exploiting
      -Shadow clones would die from any dmg taken and can not output damage themselfs.

    TO prevent mass greifing, siege STR clones.
      -Cant turn on criminal acts.
      -Cant destroy things that are not on your own personal claim.

    TO prevent a to rewarding easy mode mining
      -Cant mine

Ideally this would cut down on time, labor, alt making & clients connections.

This would also be a big help to framers to tend the farms with an char of = stats as the main.
Make it more user/ noob friendly since noobs have no idea about using labor alts.

Bad idea.
Playerbase would shrink to none.
Alts are required to play this game.
Issue is within mechanics. Like so many fucking things capping everything, and death being permanent.

That would be basically all of us.
and one of the hardest things gaming as tryed to do for years.
it's just not possible or ideal.

the better solution is to ask "why do these people alt"
does "my game need alting?"

if yes then ideally you should make a system to touch on the matter.

Or maybe change the game mechanics instead so alts aren't "needed"? At least if we use the word "ideally". Finding something which is probably not good and making it easier to be played in a not good way doesn't sound ideal to me...

this game does not NEED alts, its try-hards who want to get to as high possible q as possibly by using army of them that make it a thing, I dont mind slowly building up all my skills as a hermit, of course there is no chance I will ever get to q300 steel or q200 trees, but tbh do i need that stuff? There are already villages where you can find people with skills you do not possess if you want to progress faster, why do you need alts then?

Why do I need job for money if I can beg for it in streets? Some people do not like to be beholden to the other men needlessly.

if you decide to be a hermit then be a hermit not a 1 man village with 10 alts o.0
