Tool qualities and Harvesting Amount/Speed
« on: March 01, 2013, 06:03:53 AM »

Just curious, as I've been playing a bit of Planet Explorers the last few days, and am a bit buffled.

Is there any point to buying better tools in terms of harvesting?
At the moment, Wooden/Stone/Bronze pickaxes that I have tried, seem to only harvest 3 resource at a time, and it's a bit annoying to have to click every time as it takes a bit to harvest/play the animation.

I can tell you iron is a noticeable improvement as it makes a much larger hole and will pull up 4-6 resources depending on how many tiles it actually takes away (based on where you click and the surrounding terrain). The animation stays the same though.

The incremental differences are small at the moment, we‘ll be tweaking the numbers more for a0.6.  :)
