Thought on sticks.

Keep running into the situation where my Goblins run out of food and sticks by the second winter, and either starving or freezing to death. Since Goblins burn through sticks so quickly, perhaps there could be alternative, more renewable ways to produce sticks?

currently thinking that woodcutters and lumber-mills (the places that make logs and planks) could perhaps produce sticks as a byproduct of their craft. Making logs would involve breaking off branches that could become sticks, and making planks would involve cutting logs up into sections in which the waste portions could also become sticks.

Just my thoughts on the matter at least.

Hey Tam! 

I've been think about this a lot as well. The most likely solution I'd consider is a "firewood" producing building and then balancing towards that. As you saw in the twitch stream this morning though, it is possible to stockpile sticks, I survived 3 winters. One feature that is coming soon is the ability to directly prioritize certain resource points, so you will be able to prioritize stick collection from trees directly. This should solve the problem anyway, but if not, then we'll look at the production chain.

Sounds good to me!
