true, but I always plan big, I never get there because of the bugs. but the way I see it, plains arent big enough sometimes for the plans I have for them, I build my houses bigger than most ppl do on streams, youtube videos, screenshots and such.
i expect when they hit stage 2 (see below) on water, fertillty will be taken into account, and then I think mountains will be hard to grow food on.
I also hope they slow down growth or decrease yield from plants,because right now, 1 farmer with 3 fields of 5x20 of corn, turnip and pumkin can sustain a population of at least 20 hearthlings wich in my oppinion is to small of an area.
this makes irrigation obsolete. why would you need it if a few fields are enough.
(radiant said in their stream that they build the game in stages, stage 1 water is making sure the physics are in place and the generation of it. stage 2 is using it)
edit: also id rather have space I dont need, than needing space and not having it
