I’ve been playing around with building in solo play. I keep running into the issue that building too close to say a tree or a bush causes them to despawn. Not always instantly, but generally on relogging. Recently I tried to have a walled garden, Roman villa style, but everything in the court despawned. I’m hoping the devs can find a way to allow the terrain to be kept, or maybe add decorative items, trees and bushes, that can be placed by players but don’t spawn resources? The decorative planters are nice, but they are planters, not free standing.
It’s not a high priority I’m sure for a survival game, so I can imagine it not being worked on.
