Someone already proposed an idea about a tool (I am sorry I forgot the word)
Which would yield mostly bark and in bigger numbers.
But sure pick should yield more too.
Altough I don’t have personal problem getting the bark what I need but I can imagine some bigger clans with all the leather(tar) needs could have run out of bark. Easily.
Maybe because I only using bark in the dryer, and thesome times in tanner.
For the dryer I need to wood too so it is just a bit more work.
If you wanna use the tannery to make tar mostly. Than you can try this instead: get coal (a lot of it…but that’s easy) and put it to the fluid press. (since I am doing this I can play for days with that 1 stack of bark I can collect in some 10-20 minutes. Yeah I need to kill a whole forest of coal nodes … sure, but I find it more time saver than bark + a lot of skin.
What I noticed to having a hard time get is fur nowadays.
The north used to be too crowded with wolves and bears, and they are gone now it feels waay too empty in this version. Almost like a ghost town.
