I have been away from Rising World for a couple of months but have come back after seeing the latest update bringing more danger to the game in the way of hostile people. Looks great.
I am going to document here the way I play Rising World with screenshots which may be a little different to how you play the game.
Example...... I started a new game 20 minutes ago and the first thing I did was find a source of fresh water. Now with hostiles in the game I have decided to go up high with water near the top of a hill so I can see around me and keep an eye out for hostile people.
When I started playing this game early last year I always liked to find water as well as a nearby source of stone....eg A mine.
Well now I am doing it different and this time all I need is the water. I no longer use the mines that appear in the game.
Once I have water sourced I then look for a suitable area in which to begin digging a mine.....in most cases into the side of a hill covered with grass.
As you can see in the screenshot here I have started a nice looking tunnel through the grass and dirt heading in a gradual downhill location.
