Lost items due to water

I was chopping wood in the beachy part of the game (first area after the tutorial), and the wood that I was going to pick up slipped down all the way into the water, and disappeared. I could’ve probably caught it if the chopping animation wasn’t so slow at the end, but it’s very annoying that items can disappear into the water after spending time trying to chop/mine/etc.

Would it be possible to make items float or something if they go into the water, or make it so they won’t go into the water (make water create an invisible wall for items)?


Just had this happen to me, it 100% should auto-loot to inventory once done gathering whatever resource. (Unless full)

Or no collision/physics for dropped resources

That would be so much better. It would save time too.
