Logging Revamp
There needs to be a few things changed with logging trees IMO

NOTE: I know we have bigger fish to fry first, But wanted to get this in the new suggestions area while I was thinking about it.

From the Xsyon game manual:
Logging
Every tree you see in the world is a potential resource that can be chopped
down. Equip an Axe in your right hand, keeping your left hand empty. Face your
character towards a tree and Right Click the Logging Action in the Action Panel
to begin felling the tree. When the tree has been felled, Right Click the trunk of
the tree to select an action to process it.
Most all this has been talked about but I'm only seeing one suggestion here in the new suggestion area. And I have the link and what it's about here in this post, But more on that later.

First thing I would like to start with is the amount of time it takes to chop down a tree. Even a high skilled logger should take a lot longer to chop a tree down than what it takes a low skilled logger does now. I'm not talking 5 minutes or anything, But it should take more than a few seconds for a low skilled logger to take a tree down. And it may also need to be changed where it takes more than one action to chop down a tree at the lower skill levels. Giving you a chance to break your axe. I rerolled my toon not long ago and have not counted the number of tree's I have cut down, But I have yet to break my axe. Can you even break your axe at cutting down trees? Is it like terraforming and the shovel? I would like to see it take more than running up to a tree with axe in hand, Click one time and a few seconds later the tree is cut down.

Moving past cutting the tree down now we come to chopping it up, Here is where a post is already started.
Logging cycle Issue Number 894 you will see this suggestion
cut tree >turn into long log > have ability to chop into short log
To add to this I would say it needs to be done in more than one action. Righ now in just a few seconds I can turn a large tree in to a big pile of long logs or short logs in one click.

If thay keep all this as one click wonders, At lest make the damn things take as long as fishing does.

Balance is what youíre looking for, but there has to be a way to add balance and not monotony. It would also be nice to see the cut tree >turn into long log > have ability to chop into short log, then to firewood added. It is a logical progression, would save a few trees by adding more skill gain potential per tree, and add a bit of complexity. Gathering wood is already time consuming, as u have to carry each log one at a time, donít get me started on short logs...

I agree.

You can break an axe but it doesnt use up much off it at all.

It should take a LOT longer to chop a tree down. Skill should have a much much less effect on how fast it takes too.

Right now its 30s for a 5 skilled logger to chop one down, down to 3.5s for a 100 skilled.
That's almost 10x faster. It should be something like 30% faster. Make the base 0 skill time take about 1.5mins and 100 skilled time take 1min.
Trees are a resource you cant just fix very fast, thus removing them should take effort.

If you dont make it take 1.5mins then make it take 1 full energy bar or something. I would rather have the time and energy mix. Like 1.5mins and 1/2 your energy bar.

Your right "Balance" is what I'm looking for.
And when you can cut a tree down faster than you can cast a rod out to fish, Something is wrong.
People are cutting trees down for three rerasons, For Crafting, STR gain, Griefing. Two of the reason are bad for the game. One big problem is that they made cutting trees a way to gain str, When it should be the carrying of the long logs(or any thing heavy) that should gain you the str stat. And griefers will be griefers, But why make it fast and easy for them. You say that it's time consuming enough already, But what you are talking about is the carrying of the logs. Not cutting trees down.
