It's not just matter of having to smash the ice yourself, I can almost never find the things during winter since they blend in with the snow.

This is a good suggestion, I like it!

My current workaround is that i put some branches in a little circle around the well in every village that i go to so that i can find it again later.

asking for directions from the villagers also helps somewhat, but if you're too close to it, the conversation goes like this

Villager: it's right over there, you see.
Me: No, I don't see it, it's covered in ice and snow.

It doesn't really help that UrW NPC mirror neurons aren't working, so they assume that if they can see someone (or something) you can, even when your sight path is blocked by a building...

I think they try to do it from your perspective but they don't always succeed

Code: [Select]

For example the other day I was standing in the @ position and I asked X if he knew where W was, and he said that he was inside just around the corner, instead of saying he's right over there, you see.

So they don't always get it right but I guess this is how real people are, too, sometimes they think you know the things they know and make a mistake, sometimes they realise that you don't know the same things and accomodate you.

Also, when they say the water is 25 meters to the northeast, they mean that starting from where you're currently standing, you should walk 25 steps northeast and then either your X coordinate will be right, or your Y coordinate will be right.

So they correctly get it from your perspective not from their perpsective in that situation.
