Oh god Again...

What's worse than someone stealing ALL of the stone for your new room?

Someone stealing just one...

One consequence of dwellings is how it affects Squathole. Every other outpost has dwellings on the same map square, usually including a guesthouse of some sort*. I haven't been to Acehigh, but certainly everywhere else does. Now Squathole doesn't, you need to go two squares away to find somewhere that you can build. This makes Squathole a rather less attractive place to stay**. For the game player who want's to stay there, there's three options.

1) Forego the 5% stamina bonus at the start of the day.
2) Begin and end each day wading through two squares of muck.
3) Give up and go elsewhere.

This means that you can't use the last of your stamina reinforcing the Squathole walls and still get your bonus. And it means that people who are trying to heroically defend Squathole are at a disadvantage compared to defenders of other outposts.

I haven't seen any serious effects in terms of outpost defence levels say, but I can't help wondering. I'm not complaining or saying that anything should be changed, just noting it as a possible effect.

Can I ask, is anyone changing their gameplay strategies because of this, or am I just barking up the wrong tree here?

------------------------------------------

*Well done the people who are building these, I feel that they really contribute to the friendly welcoming spirit of the Island, which is one of it's strong features.

**In game play terms, obviously. There's very little that could make Squathole less attractive as, say, a tourist destination.

Strah-tuh-gee?

I don't understand the question..

But, yeah, the inability to build on swamptiles surprised me as well, seeing as how we have an outpost there with some pretty sturdy buildings. ( if the midgets dont destroy it, its class-a construction, little avatars of entropy as they are.)

I really wanted to build a house-on-stilts along the beach of the lake, but alas..
