nothing automatic ! if you put your mail in the box, it won't come to the other one by magic ! let a player doing it for you ! and then, being paid !
... but as one of the most voted feature is paper and writing system, no need of the mailbox, people will be postmen easily with written messages
It can be depends on the view and situation of people.
There has been already idea of pigeon mail – I personally like the idea.
However I agree nothing in this game should be easy!
That’s why to possess mail you need to build it – lets make it costly enough to build.
AND freaking pigeons – they just don’t magically appear in the cage or box or whatever.
YOU need to catch them let’s make them more rare that catching rabbits or chicken.
OFC pigeons don’t travel instantly from place to place lets make it 1 hour (minimum) to travel those distances
What if your or another village dont have pigeon stand/box/cage?
Simple answer – MOVE. YOUR. ASS! (no offence)
OFC General chat is also a NO NO.
