This doesn't really encourage playing, does it? You assign workers to gather materials, then log out and wait for there to be enough materials days later.

So am I missing some way to gather materials faster by actually playing? If I am, the game didn't encourage playing or make it clear you can get materials faster by playing and should.

It's awful mobile-inspired garbage game design. You can sometimes rarely get "packs" of materials when doing stuff on the island, but it's inconsequential amounts.

I also have to question what happens when everything is fully upgraded? Are materials then entirely useless?

I also was disappointed that I couldn't earn materials faster somehow. On the upside, over time I'll be able to unlock all of the perks without having to go out of my way to do it. Pros and cons and all.

Yeah there are some pros, we don't have to grind endlessly which is a plus.

Actually, you still do. Though not as bad as it could have been. The final tier (I assume all) of upgrades require items that you can rarely get though activities on the island.

The two items I've found so far are Dinosaur Rib Bone (upgrades Player Lodge) and Reinforced Dinosaur Pelt (upgrades Hunter Lodge).

You *can* earn them faster, its just RNG (and one of the building upgrades makes it more frequent) - you can get "compacted" resources while doing a related skill on the island (mining can give comptacted stone, hunting can give comptacted hides, etc), and randomly get any of them while doing the agility course.

You can move workers around to get desired items faster. Like have more workers on clay and less on wood, if it is low and you need it badly for a build.

I bet if there’s a batch 2 there will eventually be more things to build and upgrade. Months from now when a lot of people have maxed out on everything. It’s kinda like ports, but at least ports allows you to also craft things that can be used and traded outside of that activity.
