So, I've been playing Westbound (ok, I have some stuff I have been avoiding, so clearly what I needed was Another Time Suck. So not. However, Discipline Only Occasionally R Us.) Anyway, it seems that a lot of the things that we had suggested for Shipwrecked have been implemented in Westbound, and some things that we complained about!
1. You can ask your neighbours for help. You need a resource? You can send out a request.
2. Foreshadowing. There are a bunch of things that you can see, but you can't get yet.
3. A LOT of things require gold. LOTS.
4. Ghosting does not appear to work. Sadness.
