I get what you are saying.
With housing routes, harvesting is quick and painless (relatively)
With high enough skills, you don't even need to make a lot of the stuff in game (ie fuel cells etc) and food has become nothing more than a passtime for me.
Mood is now totally under control, no need even for Rookswort.
With the new game cards and the Quoin areas, iMG gathering is a doddle.
But then, there is so much more to this game than all of that.
it is easy because everything is on your streets no need to travel lands to find things everything is too easy to get. when travelling no one is there everyone is staying on their streets. I am not much interested in decorating i want to do things and go places.
It would be fun if TS made an NPC to do fun quests or something similar, because I got like 12 quest open, but I don't get any satisfaction from completing them (I'm comparing this to MMORPG games) so I just don't do them.
