From what I’ve seen of the game, and what Dave has already said, it doesn’t seem to be a very mining-oriented game. However, I do feel like it would benefit to have metallic materials for building and maybe tools (?), so maybe your, uh, caveman guys could use some sort of hammer or pickaxe to crack open rocks that would have chances of having metals in them? Maybe Dave was already thinking of implementing this, or maybe he doesn’t want metals at all, but I figured I’d just pitch this idea just in case.
Are you talking about something that resembles the mining in a game like BotW, or more like Minecraft/TBH?
I’m talking about the rocks that are already generated aboveground. There would be no underground aspect.
(And what is BotW? Never heard of it.)
Legend of Zelda: Breathe of The Wild
It’s a game on the Nintendo Switch.
Hm. So they would just hit it and *poof* there’s your metals?
Yeah, true. But technically the same thing?
