So, got started with the mod a short while ago. So far I've been living mostly on seaweed. I live on an island (may actually be an small archipielago since I can walk to another island) so not many mobs nearby. The other island does have a few pigs, one of which I killed out of curiosity to see if the drops were different. What worries me is running out of wild animals, because in that case I'd be utterly screwed as there doesn't seem to be any wild crops. For how long can I rely on seaweed as my main food source?
Only a couple of weeks if there is enough seaweed. You need to walk even more. remember that wild animals respawn but domestic animals dont. Go to the IRC to get more tips
