I know there are a lot of barbarians like me who would rather spend their time exploring, gathering, killing, or raiding instead of managing a “factory”.
I have come to two different solutions for this.
1: Retool barer thrall
2: Create new thrall type
the thrall will be placed as normal. Once down can be assigned 1 storage location and one bench, or 2 bench locations. First assigned location is pull second location is fill. Tier of thrall dictates number of resources it manages. Ex: tier 1 one resource, tier 3 three resources.
Thrall will attempt to keep 1stack of resource(s) in the fill location at all times or till pull location is empty of that resource.
If the Minecraft mod community can make it happen. I have faith that funcom can do it too.
