EternityTide Posted October 28, 2014 Share Posted October 28, 2014 One thing that has gotten on my nerves in the game is the rate at which tools deteriorate, specifically the hatchet, but also the rifle and hunting knife as well.IRL, I frequently use an axe to cut firewood, especially now that winter is drawing close. It's a steel head with a fibreglass plastic handle, about 0.8 metres from the toe (top end of the axehead's cutting edge) to the end knob (the very end of the handle), with a 2Kg head. I've used this axe for over 3 years now, and although it needs a little love (I need to strip down the rust on the blade and resharpen it) it still splits wood nicely.The hatchet in game degrades at a ridiculous rate, requiring the player to comb the edges of the map to find the last few scraps of metal to repair it.The hunting knife I haven't yet reached a point where I'm running out, but it's fairly close to doing so. Again, IRL knives do not run out this fast.The Hunting Rifle, I'll admit, is old, and probably rusty, but the rate at which it degrades is a little over the top. Maybe if it degraded by 1% per one or two shots, I would be happy, but currently I think it degrades at about 4-5% per shot, which, frankly, is unrealistic.There are two ways I can see this problem be corrected:1. Tool degradation is reduced to a more realistic decay rate (this is my preferred option)2. More materials such as scrap metal and fir wood be made available.
