        Didn’t like it. Mostly because of what said though. Grindy as all fuck and some of the hitboxes are unreasonable. Still really impressive for such a small studio though.

          This.
          I played solo and i collected a fucking shitton of all the ores in the game, enough for like 3 playthroughs with all items max upgraded. I love the gameplay loop in this game

        Agree: I started playing this with some friends and I’m having a blast, but when I tried playing it by myself I got incredibly bored. I know that any game is more fun to play with friends, but I think that Valheim’s relatively on rail gear progression coupled with building autism is very conductive to fuck around doing stupid stuff while keeping everyone in the group interested

      I would really like to get creative with building houses / base, but terraforming any larger area is just such a pain.
      Are there any mods that make terraforming easier or gives you the ability to terraform a bigger area?

      I don’t mind the grind when playing solo. Then again I also just like living on the land and in prebuilt shacks and ruins I guess, there’s plenty of them around in every biome so the only building I do are bridges for carts.

        No matter how humble your home is, the demands of tech tiers and better armors means your metal needs will probably still be high. The process of cutting down trees to build bigger houses is a lot more fun than mining.

      It’s a very good game, especially for EA, but it also feels kinda shallow. At some point the only incentive to keep exploring the world is if you run out of ore, as biomes contain nothing unique otherwise.

      why does a game so small in scope that is practically 90% finished need so much time to release out of early access?
      Fill out the endgame quickly, wrap it up and move on to the next project. what gives?

        That’s relative. With how small the team is, it’s pretty big in scope
        >90% finished
        Not even close. We have 5/9 bosses in the game, and the remaining 4 need their own biomes as well. The new biomes need materials, enemies, music etc. etc.
        >Fill out the endgame quickly, wrap it up and move on to the next project
        This is the exact thinking that lead to Early Access games extremely shitty reputation, shitty half finished messes. The devs have said they want to make the game as good as they can, and that takes time

        I didn’t mind the copper grind that much, but i will say that if it were up to me i would change it so that the copper veins were much smaller, but you were guaranteed to get 1-4 copper for each piece broken. It sucks to mine 5 pieces in a row and get nothing but stone.
        The ore that really bothered me was the fucking iron. That felt like an absolute chore. Luckily that has changed in H&H because now you mine more than one piece at a time

        This one’s the only one where a village of eight or ten people all with different things they like to do really works well due to the systems put in place. Especially when you hit milestones like finally building a large enough bridge for the Longboat you eventually get to go under, or just bosses.

      It’s a great game in concept but it fizzles out after you do mostly everything. It’s one of those games were you don’t really "finish it" you just sort of stop playing it after a while.

      If they keep making regular content updates and so on, it could be way better. It’s a great fun little game to play especially with a friend or two. And also great if you’re into the building aspect and want to create grand structures but once you get 3 or 4 bosses down, have built a couple homes, etc, there isn’t much more to do.

        The main objective in the game is to kill all the bosses, but not all of them are in the game yet. The devs have said that once you kill the final boss, whenever that comes out, that will be the end of the game.

          I honestly didn’t even know the final boss wasn’t in the game. But that’s what I mean. Once you kill the Dragon boss and maybe the one in the plains (if there even is one, that’s where I stopped playing), there isn’t much else to do. Grind for ores and upgrade all your shit? Grind material to build your house bigger? You could, but the grind takes forever for some items and objects and ultimately it just becomes un-fun. In my opinion at least. I’m not saying the game needs to hand you the materials, but it’s fucking annoying as hell grinding iron ore and having to possibly literally drag it across the entire game world just to build some iron banded wooden bars to hold your house up better.

          If you want to do that you might as well just do it in the creative mode. Otherwise the real game part fizzles out like I said. In a year or two after many more content updates that flesh out the building more, combat more, enemies, more interesting skill leveling, etc, the game will be much better. I’m not trying to shit on the game, I have almost 100hr in it with my friends I think it’s great for what it is. I just wish it were better and it will be eventually.

            There’s 4 more bosses to come, and biomes to go with them. Right now the final boss is the one in the Plains. Once you’ve killed them all then yeah there’s not much more to do unless you enjoy the grind, like i do.
            The game isn’t for everyone. It’s early access, so much will change before the game is fully released. Maybe that will end up making it more enjoyable for you.

        If they work even 75% as hard from now on as they did before early access I don’t think there is much to worry about. They probably spent a little too much time partying with their new millions which is somewhat understandable.

      The only thing it needs arem ore biomes and more incentive to explore known biomes or dungeons once you’ve gotten their resources. But it all seems like a result of early access, the groundwork is very good already.

                  You aren’t naive enough to think the profits of 5 million sales are all going back into the game, are you? Even AAA studios don’t function like that. They’re overnight millionaires, a single act of charity is not preventing the game from reaching you sooner. How much do you think a single horse even costs? That said, the wait for H&H was unjustifiable.

                Depends on whether you have an abundance of surtling cores or not. With the save me and my friends are on, we only had enough for two smelters and a kiln, so the obliterator was a means of saving an insane amount of time.

      I highly recommend playing it with mods. Modders are doing a better game developing the game right now than Iron Gate is.

      Valheim+ let’s you customize pretty much anything in the game. How much wood you get for chopping down trees, how much coal you can fit in a kiln, crafting at a workbench without the materials in your inventory. All big time savers/QoL mods.

      I also recommend Skyheim if you wanna get basic magic spells like a fireball, heal spell, etc.

        Oh and the creature control mod, that’s maybe the biggest game changer. You can make it so enemies have a chance to spawn (customizable too) with elemental-infused damage, higher chance for more starred enemies, and unique qualities like do they split in two on death, are they more aggressive, aggro from farther away, etc. Those three mods together really make the game waaaaaay better.
