at the moment i don't see any good solution for tailings. The only way to deal with it, is to place it where you don't farm. 30 blocks away the pollution is still around 5% which is to much for plants. What I really think about is, if it's supposed to be like that. I think it should clean itself after some days to dirt or garbage.

RE: Latest version
RE: First run-through ideas and comments
You can also do your roof with normal hewn logs. a hole for windows and door-holes without doors can be 1x2 or 2x1.
If you have the hammer selected, you can press shift und scroll up an down to switch between floor, stair, roof etc. You can also click on the symbol for hewn log that appears when you select the hammer.
If you dont get it, you can watch a youtube video.
Deeds are merged in the actual version, so this a your problem. Go buy it an download the right version.
RE: Feedback after 20hrs of SP only
Why do you think that agriculture makes no sense in Singleplay? Maybe your planet is to big for you alone. At the moment ECO is much better for multiplayer. On a Planet with 0,54km with about 8 players, agriculture is absolutely essential. If you play longer, you will see, that agriculture is also very important in singleplayer, unless you want to travel half of your time. Otherwise you wont be able to cook better food.
I would really appreciate a much bigger impact of pollution on the whole planet, instead of just a small area.
At the moment you don't have effects, that you can't deal with, unless you eat the last ones of a few plants and throw away their seeds. But this will only happen once to you because next time you know, you have to care about it.
You dont need bison, because its just bigger than a hare, turkey, wolf and elk. Only the fox is special because it gives fur pelt.
If you lose all land animals you still have just a small problem. There is also fish, which is impossible to kill on the complete planet.
Really? Players don't know whats good for them? Maybe you should not talk like this about people who played much more than you, especially when you know nothing about multiplayer. Railroads would have a very big impact on player to player economy. When you play some more hours, in multiplayer, you will get to know that economy is what makes people stay longer on bigger servers.
RE: Does the meteor timer still run if no-one's online?
Yes, you can start your own server. You, as an admin, can disable the meteor or change the time to impact at any time if you want. You could also shut down your server, so no time is running, but noone will be able to be online. This won't be a problem, because you can change nearly everything during the game.
RE: Umsehen geht nicht.
Ist den grundsätzlich klar, wie es funktionieren soll?
- TAB führt zum umschalten zwischen 1. Umsehen und 2. Cursor-Funktionen
- Aus der Cursor-Funktion führt auch ein Klick im Hauptscreen raus
Wenn man Gegenstände im Inventar bewegen möchte (ggf. erst mit TAB umschalten), muss man die Items geklickt halten (drag & drop). Wenn es etwas ruckelt, kanns auch sein, dass man den Gegenstand zwischendrin verliert, und er wieder an seinen ursprünglichen Platz geht.
RE: Commerce and economy
We have a game running where everyone has his own currency. Some collaborate and some don't. Everyone who starts a store should buy something very basic. A carpenter should buy logs, a mason should accept stone. You can also accept food, so the others can afford your items. But the whole thing only works on at least a medium difficulty where you can't do every job on your own.
It works - but not on every serversetting
If you wish to work closer together with a smaller group you can add a 2nd whitelisted shop where only some people can buy your goods for less or nothing.
RE: Will there ever be single-player or server that a mac can run?
@michaelsloan Eco is meant to be played in groups and it is really more fun with others.
you can play it alone, but i think you will soon get tired about that.
First you should start on a bigger open server to test the waters, and later you can team up with some people. you can find a lot of new servers here in the forum and in a community you will find out what eco is really about. gIve it a try
