    Haha the Deathsuqitos made me shart the first few encounters when the team just walloped into the plains. Combined with those green goblins dear lord, our upgraded bronze max armor was torn and tatterred in 2-3 hits lol.

    You all feel like redoing this stuff again with new friends again and again? I have maxed my armor and weapons now and so, besides the last boss, all my time is funnelled into base building (learning) and item collection

    Sorry to say, but referencing Minecraft just worked to put me off the game.
    Absolutely hate Minecraft.

    Just... did not enjoy any of it.

    Graphically it looks like Minecraft too.

    The textures and models are late 90s-ish. I can see how some will find that off-putting. The lighting is really good though. It's a pretty well fleshed out (for an EA release) survival/craft/build game that isn't overly punishing. It's quite good if you like that type of game.

    I could never wrap my head around trying to get into Minecraft, even now. And I know it's a brilliant game. My eyes won't let me and it's my loss.

    I haven't pumped an awful lot of time into Minecraft so I could be missing something. Having spent 150+ hours on Valheim, I can see similarities with Minecraft the terrain is destructible/can be mined and there are also some building block elements to certain (not all) structures. You can actually dig a lot deeper in Minecraft. Valheim is very much aimed towards survival RPG that also has pretty decent combat, similar to the Dark Souls games. I think the visuals are pretty neat and performance for the most part is decent considering. The mix of old school pixels and modern day effects (particles, physics, etc) is brilliant. Can't wait for the next update.

    New update out today that should address some of the performance issues related to terraforming.

    downside is you need to move about a bit and then enter the command to optimize all area's previously terraformed

    Yea I went around all my bases last night hitting F5 and CTRL + V in random spots to convert the terrain. it has a fairly big radius but still took a good 45 mins. My main base feels like the fps improved slightly and is less stuttery now so paid off I guess. Saves me starting from scratch.
