Ive been roaming throughout Crystal cutting down every tree I come across. I cannot tell you how much trees are the very soul of Xsyon. It's already starting to be a strip mined hilltop and I haven't really done too many. I've been thinking about other ways to get wood and logs keeping the landscape but haven't come up with a good suggestion. Since that's how we do it anyways. :dry:
My first suggestion would be to make trees always grow back. Make the stumps permanent, un-destroyable. Placeholders if you will.
