In Exile when you woodcut you don't drop your axe you swing it at trees and do damage and branches fall to the ground. Very realistic. You get wood faster but you also break your axe quickly so the time evens out. In theory you could buy like 20 axes and just cut a ton of wood but you can only hold 40 small branches 30 branches and 20 large branches. This is Foresters Island, we will meet them later.
