Raft blocks would be blocks that are placeable in the middle of water so you wouldn't have to make a pillar from the ocean floor every time you want to make artificial land. it would be crafted with 2 logs side by side that make 1 Raft block. the actual block would take up the same area as a top slab and would be waterlogged at all times. the block would also float up to the surface if you were to place it underwater just like when you put sand in a bubble column.
I realize that the South Pacific is warm and relatively tame, weather wise, but surely voyages lasting weeks or months would have necessitated some kind of shelter... Right? Rain, wind, and the incessant sun would have been at least a little troublesome.
Would ancient Polynesians have at least pitched a tent on the raft sometimes? Or was shelter simply not a major concern?
I have just completed the Story in Vasagatan and received the engine blueprint. I decided to go to Balboa right away but the thing is my raft's size is too big: 31x31, over 900 foundations. I have already prepared all material however my planks are depleted so quickly for the engines' fuel. So do you have any suggestions to help me resize the raft for now and later? Thanks.
