Postcards only save the land?
So, I took a few postcards when meeting interesting encounters with wildlife and magical beings. But I soon found out after loading the postcard they were gone from the view. That kind of sucks...

Yea post card is only for landscape/saving an island.

If anything just 'prtsc' that stuff, it's not as if your island is unique anyway.

You dont mean to say it's not unique in the sense that the terrain layout is the same do you? I have seen similar structures and hill layouts, but I'm pretty sure the way they generate together is random.

Yea, I think the postcards revert a lot of the conditions on the island like where wildlife have spawned. I think the location of wildlife are set in the initial conditions of the randomly generated island. So the wildlife will return to their initial location instead of where they are in the postcard.

I've gotten some really interesting landscapes from the islands I've visited. There was one really strange island that had a hill at the spawn location that obscured the rest of the island. I climbed it thinking I had spawned a really small island when the rest of it appeared at the crest. I played on it for an hour or two without seeing much more than half of the island.
