What if knives let you mark trees?
What if, when you have a knife or an axe, you can mark an X on tree trunks to help you relocate a place? Obviously if you spam this ability it won't be useful, but if used carefully it could be a big help in relocating exactly where a certain plant had been dropped or where you had to turn back for the night.

I was just thinking this yesterday! I was in a valley under a ruin, and was thinking, "If only I could make a second landmark with my axe, like fell a tree or something along those lines." It would be an extremely invaluable ability.

Wouldn't this be cool to be able to do? Plus knives and axes would finally be useful for something; at the moment there's no reason not to grab lit sticks instead.

This sounds kind of cool, especially in terms of immersion. You make a good point on how useless the tools are. This might be kind of hard to implement though.

What do you guys think of being able to write notes onto the map as an alternative? That should be relatively easy for IonFx to do.

Edit: typo and layout

Great idea!

I really like that idea. We've been thinking about ways to expand on the cartography and triangulation system for games we might do in the future. Psycho, your map marking idea is definitely something we've thought about. Writing in journals too. Maybe we'll incorporate that into a future game as well.

Thanks for consideration and again, thanks for making such as awesome game!

I like the journal idea. It would be great if you had a blank journal that automatically added "day x" and then let you write freestyle, like this[www.minecraftwiki.net]. This could then be made into a roleplaying story if desired and shared online by Miasmata enthusiasts, or simply used as game progress notes by the player.

Future games eh? Any hints as to what those might be?
