How do you like this guy:
Real caveman, with armor made of wooden sticks and a club, ready for anything to come his way :-)
Stick armor will be easy to make early in the game, you just need to find some wood and ivy and make a crafting table. It’s not very durable (one hit from a rhino will waste it), but better than bare skin. 60% of hits lands on the torso, so having it protected is better than any other part of the body.
After today, there are 24 different items to wear in the game. I’m now off to finish other things besides clothing, if I get some more time at the end I’ll add socks :-)
