I'm losing my gaming partner until the end of the year and will be solo on our server. We've completed all but Yagluth, have some cute bases on 3 continents, we play vanilla and don't plan to change that. Just trying to figure out how to fill my time for the next 6 months while solo since I don't want to go after Yagluth without them. Ideas so far:
Fully explore the world, continent by continent, starting from Alpha base, mapping every resource I find.
Build bases (or at least travel-stop cabins) in every biome of every continent and sizable enough island.
Restore every building I come across.
Try to make a lighthouse?
Finally figure out how to tame things, we haven't worried too much about this in our gameplay.
Build a naval base with at least two of each boat.
Any other ideas on how to while away my time? I could always go play in a new server as well, exploring a whole new map. And, hopefully, there will be new content to explore during this period.
