    So I opened this game today by accident, after not having played it for… A REALLY long time.

    When did you add female characters :O? Why did I not know this, I’ve been literally waiting for that since I first played, and only having males really turned me off from the game xD.

    Mining multiple things sounds fun too, I always felt like mining was too slow in this game, and theres so many things you need from underground :P.

    Please, move all those big items into “projects” category already…
    When “MEG-Tool’s pouch” is too small to hold a campfire
    but big enough to contain an entire smelter – it doesn’t feel right :(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(

      Hmm yeah, there is some inconsistency there but we wanted to let you position the refiners wherever you want instead of locking it to a grid like the other projects. I’ll give it some thought.
