Plating Trees#465

Add ability to plant trees.

In servers where the wipe is monthly most spawn areas don’t even have a single goddamn tree.

Oh dam it would be awesome if we could plant them just like any other food (maybe they need to take longer to grow, like a few days to be finished).

I would be awesome to hide a base (kinda not as a small forest out of nothing is quite suspicious) and/or to re-forest area that we already loot.

This feature is only interesting in a monthly wipe tho :(

Certain trees can bear some kinds of fruit so it’s not just for wood but also as a food resource. Take multiple days for redwoods and other large trees and trees that bear fruit.

Great idea! Really like this one for the ability to hide a base. Here are some of my thoughts on this idea:

  • Ability to plant a variety of trees.
  • Higher grade seeds grow faster.
  • Seeds/trees are associated with a biome and grow only when placed in the correct biome.
  • Trees on average take ~2 days IRL to appear, so ~48 in game day cycles.
  • Eventually, additional tree models are implemented which allow “growing” of trees, rather than their spontaneous appearance.

Downsides: Similar to how we see a row of pumpkins/corn spam-planted, we’ll probably see the same for trees and this will be pretty ugly IMO.

However this would be a great introduction to terraforming. Allowing players to further sculpt the world that they spawn into.

Tbh, I feel l like it’s a good an a bad idea. With this, performance will suffer greatly; think about 200 players and the pumpkin/corn areas. They lag, but with more trees = less performance. I feel like it’s a good idea, but something about it seems like it’ll hurt the game more than it should, 200 players will obviously do stuff like surround their base with trees. If it’s a small tree that’s worth half of a full tree or less, that’ll be better. Logically, trees can’t grow that fast, so even for a full day irl and so on, it’ll destroy now of Rust.
I feel it is more so un-needed, you can always find new formed trees; there’s never a wipe where there’s almost 0 trees. Every tree you break basically spawns a new one, not in the same spot; but still new somewhere else. Just got to find where the “somewhere” is.

The only plantable trees should be small trees and they should only give you half wood for harvesting them

There’s respawing logs on the beach.

@Eleesium you seem like someone who hasn’t cut down 2 sectors of trees (I did than on halloween with the sicle on facepunch 3. My friends told me they needed wood, I got like 1.5 not boxes but coffins of pure wood).

Cut a tree down, get 1 tree seed, simples

Forestry would be a great addtion to Rust. Build your own little greenhouse.

Each area has a weakness and this would just trample on that balance
