WANTED: Earthworks & Agriculture

It just occurred to me that after 5yrs of updates we’ve got at least 4, or 5 varieties of pretty much anything you can build…
Except wells & farming stuff.

With the Age of War upon us, wouldn’t it be cool if we got some ancient earthworks?! I’m talking the ability to build earthen palisades for siege camps. Moats for your base that fill with water like a well. Trenches - or a basic building set of foundations and ramps with various terrain textures. Irrigation ditches, earthwork reservoirs, or any kind of alternative to either a big well, or a little one. And I would LOVE to get some basic mounded earth pieces so we can make normal-looking farms.


Wait another 5 years and you might get one of those things

Agricultural revamp would be really nice. Planting fruit and vegetables directly into dirt should be an option. The current farming boxes are ugly.


Devs could even use those walkways (with better collision) and it could work. They could retexture them, give them the same function of pots, add 4 plants to each and they could work as agricultural patches.


Ooooh now moats are a fantastic idea.

Let’s have further options for the moat water like poisonous swamp water or gaseous liquids, maybe even death by crocodile?

So many ideas…

Great idea,
Personally I love that we can dig in ground in “No Man’s Sky” (very nice space survival/adventure game),
this elevates game to another level as you can change the shape of landscape.

Love the idea of terraforming, but don’t you think that players will just dig up the ground/make huge mounds and destroy the scenery of the game? There’d have to be some sort of reset timer on terraforming or something so it doesn’t end up looking like a deserted minecraft server lol

This is kinda why I was thinking a basic kit of foundations & ramps in every terrain texture. At least with that we could level-off ground and build the appearance of earthworks.
