We should be able to build makeshift shelters. Stuff like a "lean to" maybe an igloo or various styles & types.
The KEY to this wishlist request is to make these shelters TEMPORARY shelter.
It wouldnt be to fun or fair really if you could just grab some sticks and other stuff right off the bat and build a shelter in the middle of bfe perminant af and indestrucatable.
Thats why you impliment the temporary factor.
For example: you craft a lean to shelter out of sticks, maybe some leather/cloth. Moss is a must for insulation as well as rope/guts to lash the shelter together.
Now you can build it to last a certain amount of days. For instance lets max the shelter life at a week. (7 days) Your shelter can last up to 7 days but you still need a bed roll and a camp fire should be outside almost always seeing as how your not indoors completely.
Now if you decide to take the shelter down after a day or two, you can recieve some of your used materials back.
However, the longer you wait to take the shelter down or if you wait for it to fall apart after the 7 days, the less materials you are able to aquire from the left over scraps.
Now, just like everything else in the game has estimation, we could even set the shelter life to an estimation setting so you arent guaranteed the full 7 days. Instead thats the max amount of your lucky.
Take the elements into consideration as well. Strong winds or blizzards can knock your shelter over and destroy it wether in your sleep or out in about. If you place the campfire to close to your shelter you may catch the shelter on fire in your sleep and so on.
Maybe you can make the shelters like a snare and deploy it and fold it up more than once, you know, 2 or 3 times before youve got to either repair it or craft a new one. Or you could have those shelters or the temp shelters you can make out of uncured materials in which case you can only use once.
So. Many. Ideas....
Anybody else have any ideas /better suggestions along these lines or just in favor of this idea with makeshift shelters?
