This sounded like real good fun, so I accepted the challenge and just completed stage 1.
I spawned in a big wood, near a tundra biome which seems to be perfect for building a city (large flat lands). As a bonus many animals are roaming the area - yay, first night in the world in a warm and cosy bed!
The first shelter was a bit basic and was rebuild in the following days - entirely of wood - after many a trees have been chopped and even more trees where planted.
And now for the foto love story:
My rebuild shelter with the wheat farm next to it:
So far the I couldn't harvest anything from the wheat farm as it's missing water - but no iron until stage 3 :sad.gif:
Anyway, here's a close up of it:
Tiny living room with a workbench and a chest for the stuff I don't want to carry around all day:
The bed room with the Chest -o- Progress, holding the needed items to advance to stage 2:
Inside the chest:
Stage 2 here I come! Stage 2 will allow me to make me some nice steaks so my hunger and health problems will finally get fixed :smile.gif:
I accept your challenge! It sounds like a lot of fun. With proper guidelines and restrictions its something i can aim to achieve.
Plus i like the style like Age of Empires, as you progress through the ages as you learn better technologies :smile.gif:
I've finally finished the 1st stage (which i like to call the Wood Age), just before the eve of the 4th night.
Here is my inventory list
And here is my modest domicile, nothing fancy but spending 4 stacks of planks on it and needing to farm more (for age progression) is frustrating.
