I get that the crafting system is desgined to spread crafting out over a reasonably long time so no one just hops in and power levels to the max tier, but seriously? crafting is way to "tedious/ repitave" being able to craft in batches is seriously needed...I spend way to much time clicking in this game, its insane...and starting to wear me out.
dont get me wrong, I actualy enjoy...say gathering grass, I bend down to gather grass and every time I stand up I have gathered one small bushel of grass "thats fine" but then to need a whole stack of like 90 grass just to level my skill like 3 points is insane even impounded by the fact that each time I make one component I have to "click the recipie, CLICK the tools *more then one*, CLICK the ingredient/ resource, then finaly CLICK "craft" and doing that three of four times only gains me 1/10 of a skill point >[
it's just too much of a GRIND, people are just getting burnt out on this type of game mechnic its been going on for years "and this game has one of the more tedious versions" you cant keep players by just artficaly extending out game content.
*Edt* you keep subscribed "Paying" custmers by having a fun game...terraforming is fun, being able to design your own tribe is fun, talking to other players in the community "can be fun" leveling your caracter can be fun...but not like this. it burns you out quickly
