The intent of this post is to give you some ideas to improve your in-game survival experience.
First of all, sorry for the bad English I’m from Brazil.
I was thinking, instead of always treating the issue of biomes as a standard, how about trying to implement the issue of season of the year?
I’ll give just one example using winter so the post doesn’t get big, and the rest is up to everyone’s imagination.
We could have a winter week on the map, snow falling, few animals, cold weather, difficulty finding resources and food, we would have to keep the house always warm, a fireplace or fire burning. The weather issue would increase survival in the game, with few animals, and slow respawn.
