I know what you're all thinking. Just go and get some wool, but let's be honest. You don't always spawn next to sheep... Wool is not the only material used to make bedding, contrary to popular belief. I believe that they should incorporate several new designs for beds, because sleeping seems to be very difficult in this game. Being deprived of something so simple, just because you haven't found sheep seems quite silly to me.
I fully support exploring the map, but just to lay your head at night is not why I adventure. Feel free to talk about spawn points, and the likewise. My idea is using bales of hay for bedding. It could be temporary bedding, you can do the hammock that has been suggested multiple times. Point blank, I can sleep on the floor if need be, but when there are plenty of materials lying around to make a bed we should be able to do so.
I feel like I get held back from enjoying the game, because you don't always spawn next to necessary materials.Yes, you can sometimes find wool in a village, but you don't need to look that far for a place to sleep. Food yes. Villages yes. Strongholds definitely. A bed, no. Sleeping just seems a tad silly to me in this game. Feel free to explain to me why you think it should stay the same, or different variations. I feel like if we all contribute we can find a happy medium from the guys who want hammocks with 2 string and a stick, to the guys who prefer to never sleep at all.
I've had no problem with anything other than a bed right now. I play through on survival mode, and this what I've done in an hour. Place to stay, fenced in area. Made a fishing rod, and found a spider spawner with some chests. Now I have a horse, and some more saddles. I see a desert temple in the distance, and would really like to explore it. It's just been night time so I guess I'm a little biased on the subject lol.
