Huge Rocks for everyone!

Post by Kyralessa » Sat Dec 30, 2017 2:43 pm

TL;DR
Always give the player a Huge Rock to start out with.
What ?
One of my favorite low-key new features in 16.x is the Huge Rock. 37.5 stone and 37.5 coal! Instead of chopping trees or planting your initial burner miner on coal, you can start smelting iron right away and get moving a lot faster.

...If you can find a Huge Rock, that is. Currently it seems to be very random whether one shows up near the player's start position or not.

The proposal: Always put at least one Huge Rock on the screen when the game starts. Or at least have an option for it.
Why ?
It decreases the start-game tedium of coal and stone mining. You'll still have to mine coal and stone, but you can get a much quicker start with that 37.5 of each.

That's a good idea, I think it would be a great addition to the game!
"Artillery laser cannon shotgun uranium explosive turret tanks" would be the greatest thing ever.
