Again super hyped about 1.1 and thank you for all the hard work! I love it so far! Just trying to point out a few things to try to help <3
Due to the new abilities like hunting, gardening, et. I was wondering if it would be possible to gain experience while we do those tasks instead of having to only do job related things?
XP varies depending on what it is, the idea is small amounts if its something you can do for hours on end, you still get some experience instead of having to do a ‘work’ job. Maybe 1 - 10 xp each time, possibly a bit more if higher level? Similar to how creating items work, except that you are using that skill.
Go hunting and shoot/process an animal
Grow/Find an herb/garden (no idea how this works yet)
Cook a piece of meat
Mine a node
Turn ore into ingot (I did this pre 1.1 and got no experience in mining for it)
Fish and catch a fish
Fix a car with a repair kit (you, not the automated one)
Patch someone up (Medical)
The xp all goes into helping you level, where it then goes to the neutral skill pool.
This way, it helps people get experience while doing these skills. I actually thought this was how it was going to work which appears wrong, which is totally my misunderstanding.
My concern is I don’t want to see people grinding specific jobs like Delivery and Taxi to get xp and avoid doing these other amazing skills you spent all this time putting into the game for us. I think it would be fun and worth it to be able to use these skills to hunt/fish/cook and while not get paid, get a little xp for each.
Thank you for listening to my suggestion! <3
