Suggestion for the upcoming Trophies As trophies are in the next release... one thing I am really really hoping for is having exact animal sizes to animal descriptions, and/or for the bones/skulls you get from them.
It would be cool story wise, to walk into my cabin on a cold winter night and see a large bear skull in the corner, and reflect on the time I beaten such a large dangerous bear.
e.g. (examining a bear) This is a huge male bear! He stands at 6ft (1.8m) tall at the shoulder.
 You've harvested a 18 inch skull from the bear!
The same for antlers, I'd want to show off the number of the points that I have on the antlers I harvest (the individual horns on an antler for those unfamiliar with the term).
You take a 15 point set of antlers from the Stag corpse.
The same can be given to fish, make them variable in weight or length... So people can dream about "catching the big one" in the game.

I think adding some flavorful descriptions like this would help towards community involvement too and story sharing.
This way everybody can show off who got the biggest stag/bear/pike and so on ;)

If more specific size descriptions are added to animals, this should mean variable skins size and butchered meat amounts too. But for the purpose of this suggestion it doesn't have to go this far yet.

Re: Do Single-Tile Islands Generate Animals? I don't see why not. But I trust PALU's answer. Though this doesn't exactly answer your question, I've seen a herd of reindeer spawn on a 4 tiled island.

The only the time they may not spawn on the island is when you're on that one tile zone too. Though birds and water creatures will still travel to your island.

Re: Wild Animals in Villages Wolves are pretty tough. I'm surprised they managed to kill so many villagers though.
I've never seen animals go through a village, but there was a time a njerpez warrior did and he did not last very long.

It's my forest now.

Re: Can seals and beavers die underwater and be unrecoverable? Kind of old, but I can confirm this works for beavers too who can bleed to death while diving and "float" back up.

Micromanaging Rope lengths problem Why are entire lengths of ropes wasted when you only need 5 feet of a 30 foot rope for a single arrow?
I'd like to use a really long piece of cord for when I'm crafting arrows in large batches. It should be assumed that my character is clever enough to separate the rope into pieces automatically during the craft time. Instead of having to manually cut 5 foot sections of cord for every single arrow I want.
This goes for every other recipe with rope lengths. I was confused as well when I tried drying 50 pieces of meat at once with a long rope and saw afterwards that the remaining 15 feet disappeared.

Re: Micromanaging Rope lengths problem
Auto-cutting would still be convenient in some cases but not always. Sometimes you want to preserve eg. the only good long rope you have, therefore we've decided to leave cutting to player's discretion as it's safer than letting the game think for behalf of them. Naturally, there could be options to enable/confirm auto-cutting, but implementing those in the midst of crafting requirements functions now would be a mess.

What if instead we have a crafting option that lets the player define what length he wants and cut as many pieces as he can from a single rope?
Like call it "Cut many small sections". Then the player can choose a length from 1-9 or a custom one.
For example, if he chooses 4 feet out of a 30 foot rope. Then he will end up with seven 4-foot pieces with a 2-foot length left over.
That would be super helpful for building trap fences too.

Traps should be nerfed I've been playing for years now and the big thing I've noticed is how incredibly easy the game becomes after setting up a single trap-fence. Usually on the border of a open mire and a coniferous forest or coniferous mire. Or by just keeping a trap-fence around my settlement I often have an elk or reindeer diving straight into one of my traps once every two months.

I don't know how the mechanic is supposed to work for traps. It feels like having a trap causes the game to spawn an animal which must be forced to path straight to it and die. Having a dozen more traps must cause this chance for a spawn to go up even more.
On my current character I have 3 light-lever traps scattered across my settlement and I am assured some kind of bird to step in one once a week or more. There is a massive amount of capercillies spawning all the time. Maybe it helps I live by a lake as well. There is old lore that small lakes and rapids can be a source for wildlife to spawn.

I only have 28% Trapping skill and I feel way too lucky with my traps. However the mechanic works, animals shouldn't be running into them so easily. I end up with a lot of furs and meat to survive indefinitely with little effort.

Difficulty Scaling I believe the game would benefit from adding difficulty options during character creation. Options that will add extra challenge for those of us who want it. Without ruining the base experience for new players.
What I suggest are things that affect the entire game world such as animal spawn rates, bandit spawns, average item quality in villages, average temperature and so on. All of which intended to make the game harder only. I think it would be a fair design decision to avoid adding anything that would make the game experience easier.

Here's what the Difficulty menu should look like before you roll your character.
  • Average World Temperature( The world is becoming colder... ):
  •   Normal
  •   Cool (Base Temperature - 5 Celsius)
  •   Chilly -10 Celcius
  •   Absurdly Cold -15 Celcius
  • Bandit Spawn Rate( Outlaws are on the rise ):
  •   Normal 100%
  •   More 150%
  •   Double 200%
  • Njerpez Spawn Rate ( The Njerpez are going to war ):
  •   Normal 100%
  •   More 150%
  •   Double 200%
  • Enemy Skill ( The outlaws are well trained ):
  •   Normal
  •   Elite Raiders +20% skills
  •   Legendary Raiders +50% skills
  • Herbivore Spawn Rate( Prey is scarce ):
  •   Normal 100%
  •   Fewer 75%
  •   Scarce 50%
  • Dangerous Carnivore Spawn Rate( The wolves are hungry):
  •   Normal 100%
  •   More 150%
  • Metal Goods Cost (Iron is expensive):
  •   Normal 100%
  •   Expensive 150%
  •   Outrageous 200%
  • Food Cost (Food can't be wasted):
  •   Normal 100%
  •   Expensive 150%
  •   Outrageous 200%
  • Trade Goods Quality (Masterworks are rarer):
  •   Normal
  •   Poor
