Interesting idea. But with normal enemies from the sanbox, like ogres, that will be to easy. Also rabbits must have to be replaced with other, flying creatures like seagulls or crows.
There is my idea for this gamemode: a race to the biggest island on the middle of the map. The players wil start with 30 wood, two lumberjacks and a saw upgrade. One 8-meters long bridge will cost 4/5 wood.
an example of a map:
That would make castle building really hard
Maybe some sort of team deathmatch: There is a clock running, and the server assigns whoever joins to a team. The team score is the sum of the scores of all the players on that team. When the clock stops, whichever team has a higher score wins the round. The meadows would also have to be fairly large to allow for buildings and farming.
I agree that building would be harder but that's why you have bigger islands in the center. Maybe you could also expand the size of islands with certain upgrades.
Yes, there would have to be a couple big islands, and trees would have to be pretty common. This would be a neat idea for a new game mode though.
