I have notice a few times that the dungeon generator has added inaccessible rooms.  I haven't commented before, but I can't help but wonder if it is a bug, or if it is/was intended for there to be secret (hopefully treasure) rooms to add a little depth to dungeoneering.  If there is some kind of trigger to open these sealed rooms, I haven't figured it out.  If it is just a glitch in the dungeon generator, I think it would still be great to have secret rooms with extra boss treasure if you figure out how to open them.

Anyway, I just wanted to put a word in the developers' ears:  food for thought.  Also, if it can be verified that these are treasure rooms, I might try a little harder to figure out how to access them... especially if it can be confirmed that they can be accessed somehow and aren't just a glitch.

I know that glass is tricky, and there is probably nothing that can be done about the faceted patterns that appear in complex shapes.

However, I find it exceedingly difficult to craft using glass because of the optical illusions and distorted patterns that appear at various times of the day (most of the time).  I am not really complaining because the crystal patterns are interesting in their own way, but I have given up on my build (dome) because there is only about 1 hour during the day that I can actually see what I'm doing.  It is simply too hard to see the shapes the rest of the time.

What I would like to suggest is that when you go into BUILD mode, the glass blocks become an opaque shape so that they can be manipulated more easily, and then when you leave Build mode they become transparent again.  That would make working with glass SO MUCH easier.

I don't know how complicated this would be, but it would be a huge help.  Thanks!

Another method would be to have a replacement feature like the one in the creation editor.  If I could build it using, for instance, wood, then select and replace all wood in the selection with glass, that would work also, and might be an easier implementation.  Also, one of the corner shapes still seems to be a different texture from the rest of the glass, so it looks like there are holes in the glass even when the piece is in place.  The piece is more transparent than the other pieces of glass, and so it basically disappears when you fit it into place.

I can't seem to make a screenshot that is small enough to be uploaded, but you can see my build on the Survival_Ad2_Skill server northwest of Markham Village, if you need to see what I'm talking about.  It is especially noticeable on the inside shell.  It's the one that kind of looks like a space station.  I would like to finish it, but honestly it hurts my eyes and gives me a headache.

I keep both the glider and jet pack on a hot key, so I can swap them quickly.  Usually I'll climb to the top of a mountain, take a sprinting leap, jet pack as high as I can get going forward, then quickly swap to the glider.  It would work great if the chunks loaded quickly enough to not interfere with the glide, but I usually end up losing most of my altitude dropping down whenever the chunks load.  When you freeze in the air, the AI closes the glider, then you drop about 20 feet before it opens again, losing both height and momentum (which makes the glide drop even more).

Anyway, what I'm saying is that the jet pack is only good for one boost.  When you swap it, the pack has no charge left and doesn't recharge unless it is slotted.  If it had its own charger, you could continue to swap them to regain altitude with the jet pack, and just keep going until the battery charger ran out.  It would let you glide a decent distance over rough terrain, even starting from the ground.

I'm not sure about trees and plants, but you can turn off the grass and that will make it easier on the graphics.  It also makes it easier to spot stumps, canisters, and resource piles from a distance.

One of the biggest problems I found is remembering where the NPC follower wants to go. Then you have to enter the circle on the minimap to activate the next step in that quest.

I had the same problem with activating the quest to attack the Puja camp to rescue the others. I didn't go to the circle. I kept close to the trees for cover rather than being an idiot and standing out in the open with a big bullseye on my chest while the character spoke to me. It didn't activate the next part of the quest so he never went to unlock the cage. I ran around for ages trying to find a way to unlock the cage before reloading an earlier save because I thought it had glitched.

Anyone know who sells the wood fence script? I thought it might be someone who sells seeds etc but they don't have it either.

You can keep your inventory open in the corner of the screen. It's a pain that it takes up so much screen space I know, but it is a means to an end. I have tried to use the jetpack to gain some altitude for another glide. It does work but to a very limited degree because the free fall while you swap, plus the delay before the glider opens means you lose better part of 3/4 of the height you gained from the jetpack.
