I just said you log in eat log off gain skill points then do quick build, you only need to build stuff to raise tech level not anything extra so room here room there put thing in it but only if you need it to up level - once you get over the building and mine craft stuff and you just want power level up that is how you do it. haven't pushed it to 200 and there is no real need to do so. honestly there no need to even get it up to 100 it just matter of real life time just keep logged off till you get amount of power leveling skill points you want, then when you collect total amount you want build some stuff if you really want too.
but I do not play on any servers that have meteor turned on so there time limit or need to do anything and a lot of servers tend to turn feature off it seems.
I have chars on 7 servers only need put half or so in on each per day - you can accomplish more by playing less at the start and once you got you skill point saved up spend them as needed game starts move along a lot faster by doing that.
you also do not need a lot of area best spot to build zone is top of highest spots because then you get all resources going straight down just dig it all out and put some wood or stone over whole and dig straight down and out on top of that buildings do not have to be built above ground you can dig out area and build your levels below ground only requirement for rooms are to be surround by walls.
Also then sense you have a pool of 400 plus skill points if you need tree just power level spend skill points on agricultural and grow some trees on your small plot of land just level up crazy plant then log off and wait or grow them under the water so people do not know they are there or underground.
most people do not build under water you can live underwater - there no death in this game so you can build take anything any where any place. I got trees growing under water on my one server along with my whole underwater dungeon house.
there a lot of tricks and things you can do to get places to build.
you can also create teleporters in game if you deep underground and you want get up to surface quick just pix axe rock above your head it push you down through world and you end up on the surface.
in fact almost anything that would normal kill you in real life or in any other game usually creates some weird effect in this game.
the new patch might change things but as of right now whole thing is broken to point where you can do anything and you do not need to do a lot to get it done.
anyways off optic funniest thing I ever did in this game I had this road near my mine it open pit mine of course and i let go of cart and me and cart went flying up in air because that os what game does when you leave go of a cart of course , so here I am at bottom of my mine with cart on my head so i have to slowly dig out an area to move cart into that underground then some how I was able to grab cart so then i use pix axe and then I dropped the ceiling on me and cart and we both went falling through the ground and ended up on surface.
The game right now is pretty freaking hilarious right now at times.
