Today I pondered. I pondered leaving a community server. I'll admit I'm a little attached to my dinos there, but the difficulty level may be beyond me. It just feels like I'm not making any progress at all. I think the gathering is whats messing me up. Too much work and not enough reward. It's draining. On the single player side of things my Island progress is going nicely. I've started building a cliff side base for animal storage and mining. The mountain is metal and obsidian rich so things are moving quickly. Plenty of resources to build to my hearts content. Soon I'll continue going after the artifacts, I've acquired three so far and I'm looking forward to finishing the collection.
