This. Agriculture and stockbreeding should be a critical part of the game.
Farming cannot be just clicking to the ground. Currently if you visit a river for 3 mins and return the seeds to your base successfully, congrats you will forget what hunger is for the wipe.

Making farming harder and hunger a real threat, you will be forcing players to collaborate to stay alive.
