Well thats annoying… its enough of a pain to get fish without being out in the open where water is at as it is. Now we cant even build fish hatcheries? Thats how i always viewed it. No longer a well but a fishery. I think its pretty realistic. The new oil thing doesnt make sense either. The lean, tasty high quality fish shouldnt be the greasy oily one. It doesnt make any sense. Bad enough theyve practically all but removed ichor, but theyre heading doen the dark path that all these multiplayer games do, of cost based on function and usefulness and not reality. I like the bait requirement, dont get me wrong, but rhe oil thing makes no sense. Neither does the ichor removal honestly. Fish are actually full of junk. Although maybe not in the amounts we see in conan. But if you extract certain organs from fish like you would during cooking prep, (the gallbladder i think, dont quote me on that im probably wrong.) Youd find all kinds of nasty toxins like mercury. I vastly prefer having to hunt down rare ingredients to craft certain things in games over farming massive amounts of the same thing to create one item. Which is why personally i dont think steel making makes any sense in conan either, requiring like 10 iron bars to make one steel bar thats exactly the same size and weight. Many of these games break the laws of the Conservation of Mass for the sake of “balance” just because an item is useful. Conan already has that problem with its leveling system. Some things make sense for only being late game but then others are ridiculously simple and should be low level but arent. The grind stone is a pretty good example. So is farming, the farming system in the game for some reason acts like plants dont produce their own seeds. So you always have to go get more. Like, either make farming actually farming or remove it. Cuz all this “farming” does is move the source of the item closer to your base. Its literally faster to just teleport somewhere with a sickle and gather a few hundred, rather than a flat 50 per seed. Its ridiculous.
