it adds literally nothing to the game other than annoying tedium

I wouldn't hate it so much if you could craft them on the go, without lenghty animations, and if they shared common incredients instead of me needing to carry 3 woods, branches, iron, and sometimes rocks.

10x less fun is a little harsh. I admit it's a stupid mechanic and shouldnt have ever been included.

It IS annoying but I make it tolerable by carrying with me everything needed to craft replacements with.

I agree with your opinion.
Want to know why diving became my #1 fave activity now?

Nothing breaks.

That helps with the 10x less fun for me as all that crap is taking up inventory space I could use for other things.

Which Diving doesn't take up space except 2 when you take them off (and that's only if you're like me and wear a snorkel. You don't have to meaning technically only one spot).

I had so much fun getting enough points for all the items during the fishing and bug tournaments. Mainly because my rods and nets never broke.

I agree, breaking tools is dumb. If they really wanted a sense of progression with tools (i.e. flimsy -> regular -> gold) they could have easily just had the tools affect what you get as drops, rather than having them break at different stages. At the very least, golden tools shouldn't break.

My advice to somewhat mitigate this problem is to just carry around a DIY bench and a stack of customization kits. Just customize the tools when they're about to break so you don't have to craft a new one, it resets the durability to max. Unfortunately you can't do this with axes.

I thought the same thing the other day. There's no doubt in my mind they're gonna nerf diving somehow in the next update, whether it's by making the creatures sell for less or giving diving suits durability. Can't have people earning bells too quickly after all 🙄

I know how in pretty much every hame they add something that is not im the next, I sort of hope that breakable tools is the thing that they only added for this one game and remove in to be honest.. I don't know if they would though. (And I am not really ready for a new game anyway yet, just personally. But imagining for much later.) I also hope they add tools that aren't breakable in this game since the gold ones can break.

It’s annoying, but I don’t mind it all that much since the game is built around it.

When you're in the middle of digging up your fossils for the day and your shovel breaks... you're telling me you don't audibly sigh and roll your eyes? I do it everytime. It's an inconvenience and it's not fun
