Flowers need to spawn faster

Recommended Posts

With the introduction of bees and the fact that they need flowers to produce honey, I have noticed that the countryside is becoming devoid of flowers.  I suggest that you make them spawn faster so we still have some to collect.  After all, once you make a field of flowers around your hive, trees start to spawn and you have to cut them down and replant flowers .

+1  Either this or let flowers not be removed by trees.

flowers are overrated when it comes to honey production, seriously

 

 

Flowers should be the number one nectar source as they are in real life, followed closely by fruit trees, or even equal to flowers. Rather than just accepting something that makes little sense in a system designed to emulate real life honey production like the Devs sought to in Wurm the Devs should be encouraged to adjust the ratios rather than just accept something that doesn't fit the overall focus of the feature.

 

Add to this an added benefit from adjusting nectar output to make flowers top producing... it provides a built in passive incentive system to encourage Players to thin out overgrown forests and to manage the environment to encourage more open meadows and grasslands. There have suggestions made on the forums for how the Devs could encourage more open space in Wurm through changes to tree spawn rates and other hard coded means. Why not just give Players the incentive to clear some forest in favor of flowered tiled open space as a natural consequence ingame of player interaction in the game environment? Serious Beekeepers will clear out forest and plant flowers *IF* flowers gave the most nectar for their hives and honey production, and do so without altering tree spawn rates. Keeps it more Sandbox imo.

 

Not allowing trees to supplant flowers on grass tiles would alter the tree spawn mechanics and could have unintended consequences long term. IMO better to increase Flower nectar production rates and make them top producing.

 

+1 to Vroomfondel's suggestion to increase flower respawn rates.
