    No I think the bedroll design is better. They can degrade after a few days too, so you need to craft a real bed for it to last. The other option is too easy, I like rewarding guys who think ahead and thought to put down a bedroll before doing a poi, not just give them easy instant access to retry.

    You're probably not aware of this, but pretty much every server manager has a teleport (/tele home) feature, and it's widely used... I think you are underestimating peoples desire to teleport, or over-estimating peoples care about dragging out their next level increase (remember, your new system doesn't make you lose a level, it only prolongs you getting to your next level!).

    But please, allow that moddable. Currently nothing about bedrolls is moddable w/o code.

    I like to think that Madmole's offered the key idea just so he could give instant karma to Zombie_Jam. Worse than a ban: missing out on opportunity for A18

    No no nonononono.

    Unless you can shut it off. Bloom and camera shake are terrible additions to graphics gaming.

    It would be better to get rid off gaps between Terrain and blocks though ^^
    I can do a plate planter in 15-20 minutes, we've been fighting that gap for 5-6 years now, so its not happening.

    I often plant mushrooms on my walls and ceilings. More creative options are never a bad thing.

    If i need to place down a bedroll just for a place to respawn, i'd know i failed the survival part before it even started...

    (They been useful for the no-zombie-spawn radius and to get through the intro quest though)

    Not the sentiment I was going for with that comment... it was more "Oh lordy, here they come out of the woodwork sycophanticing his ass", and sure enough, someone pulled out the Puss in Boots .gif..."

    I know where I stand, and I'm content with it. I'm true to myself and that's all I care about. This is just a game afterall. =)

    I think you underestimate the ingenuity of the players of this game.

    I can indeed because I don't in point of fact ban people for not liking me or my opinion. If you get banned it will be because you continue to post doom and gloom after being 100% shut down by reason and then warned. So far you are behaving on that count so go ahead and keep posting with sarcasm and biting humor in exactly the way you tried to forum shame all Americans of doing just last week.

    At least Madmole is taking the feedback in good strides and willing to consider alternatives (such as the planter plate, so its not raised above ground). Then, the only discernible difference would be not having to hoe up the ground (I've run a tiller before, so I know it's not "tilling" with a hoe), which, yes, was a chore. Maybe I won't miss it, I dunno.

    Let's all get up in'er with A18 and give honest feedback then.
    I could do a planter plate block easy.

    Yes! I will take the planter too though!
