Joined these forums today, and have to create one post and have it approved by a moderator before my registration is complete...so thought I'd ask a few random questions I have about the game, and in that way learn a few things and get the 'first-post moderation' part done at the same time. Have played the game off-on since last year via 'Steam', but haven't done much with it...cpl. days ago logged in again for first time in 7 - 8 months and am going to get a few projects done. I am playing the game without any Mods, in 'survival' mode. My questions: > Will trees regrow over time? Will the sm. trees grow to larger harvestable size if left alone long enough? > Will trees grow into a grassland area over time (will forest expand)? > Does the growth of trees, crops, etc., continue when I log out of the game (I'm playing private game, only player currently)? For example if I plant crops, and they would normally be ready for harvest in 2-hours (just using that number as example), does the 2-hour timer only run when I am logged into the game? > Will the small stones I find on the ground respawn eventually, or once I pick up all that I can find in an area they are gone for good? > Is it possible to find veins of ore underground while tunneling? I understand about looking for the reddish color on the surface to find iron ore, for example...but wondering if it's possible to find patches of ore way underground while digging a tunnel, that might not show an indicator on the surface? Thank you for your time and assistance.
