Realism in front of Game Balance
Hello. I would say a lot of elements from real life are implemented into this game. You have Earth like planet in-game, we have Earth in real life. Most of the elements and blocks is based on real life. to find gold on earth is not fiction. you can find gold on the earth in real life as well.
I hope you try to make the game more like real life, and not turn it into fiction. And use real life as the benchmarks and not "game balance" when it comes to improving the game. I don't think the universe used "game balance" when creating the solar system we live in.
I heard that you removed uranium from the earth. that sounds like game balance, and not because you try and make the game-world like the real-world. I hope this makes sense. sorry for bad English.
