I'd love to see a Minecraft mod where deforestation does, in fact, permanently alter the landscape, your actions have a carbon footprint that is tracked behind the scenes, and where you can over-hunt and over-fish.
Also a mod where you're not accidentally incentivized to kidnap villagers XD https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d6i5Ylu0mgM
@amydentata I remember seeing a game project based around this concept.
@amydentata played Eco?
@amydentata it's a Minecraftbut much as you describe
I haven't played either; the game is reported to be unrewarding without a biggish server population who you get along with
@amydentata oh my god yes
@amydentata Dare I say, a Minetest mod? (It's coded in C++ so it's way, way faster.)
