    I don't live out in the country, but I completely agree with this. Come on Mojang, be the one AR game that is fair to the Rural people!

    I live in a small city and the content is generated throughout the map. It doesn't matter where one is. Yesterday I was able to go to a small town and there were materials to collect.Mojang has done a great job of equality.

    Set random datapoints that rotate daily, so there is equal opportunity. Oh, block out danger zones. We don’t want that happening again.

    I'm out in rural England, there's plenty of collectables around me. Much better for that than Ingress/Pokemon Go

    I very well agree, as this effects me as well. (Although I live in Nowheres-ville Saskatchewan, Canada, not the US;)

    I have noted however, at my house there are plenty of items to collect, and even more if I go to the field across from our acreage (I will agree tho, more cows than people, lmao). Although when I go to our "farm house" (my grandparents place) there is nothing, although there is more texture to the ground. I believe you can mark out things like lagoons, etc, and they would then add it to the game.

    TL;DR some places; not others so far. I will keep you posted as far as updates are concerned.

    I live in a major metropolitan area and 90% of the time that I login there are 1 or less items that I can collect. Mobility is an issue for me and walking miles is out of the question. Populating collectibles closer together or with more even placement would definitely be helpful.

    I live in a small cluster of villages in england and items spawn fairly evenly but i think that you shouldn't have to walk a few miles to get to an adventure and where there are known to be a few players there should be more tappables and adventures spawn. For example my village has no adventures but the larger one a few miles up the road has tons of them

    This point is crucial to remember when it comes to the Adventures aspect of Minecraft Earth. If adventures are only available via real-world monuments then many rural players will miss out. (An idea for this could be collectable types of adventures that players can deploy like normal buildplates, but are used up when the "mini adventure" is completed.)

    Breckenridge, Michigan has no adventures anywhere. Can we please have the availability to walk on an adventure?

    I also live in a pretty rural area in the USA, and around me there’s a fair amount of collectibles, but there aren’t any adventures, so I don’t get to experience them.

    Indeed! I occasionally work in the city. But live in a very low density suburban area. When I turn on Earth in the city, there is so much to do—tappables and adventures galore! When I’m in my home neighborhood, and want to play with my kids (which is a big reason I downloaded Earth), we have to walk so much farther for chests and especially for adventures. In fact, there is only one adventure about a mile and a half away. But in the city, there seems to be an adventure on every other city block. Please give us more to interact with outside the densely populated areas. Thanks Minecraft! We love you so dang much!

    ColdHeart1303  I really like this idea, deployable mini-adventures that you can collect in non-exploration ways, like leveling up and completing daily quests, would be useful for people in areas with few adventures.

    The tappables are well spread imo, but the adventures aren't good. It would be great if you could place the adventures instead of have to find them miles from home....

    I would agree with not forgetting the "little folks". Also I want to add that intentionally or not you neglected military bases, at least all of them on the island I live on. Whether that is for safety/security, most other AR games are all over the bases, the military community eats these games up here. Like I said I'm not sure if you did it intentionally or you just based the game on a satellite that "blocks" the bases leaving them empty of all aspects of the game I would strongly suggest you rethink this as a large group of active gamers are left out as it stands now... just my two cents, take it for what it is worth.

    I live in the middle of farm country USA and I have only been able to find 4 adventures 2 in a bigger town 25 miles east of me and 2 in another bigger town 20 miles south of me. There’s no way for someone who lives in an area like me to be able to get any of the rarer resources such as coal, iron, and so forth. Pleased please please is there something that can be done about this?

    I live in a small village and with other games this was a problem. But I can't see a difference in quantity of tappables when I go in the next city. The only problem I have are two adventures that are just outside my wifi's reach, teasing me for weeks now.

    I had to drive 45 miles (over 70 kilometers) to find an adventure that was ultimately in a closed/locked building. Career challenges are completely locked out for me because I can't get past collecting 4 coal. Chests are hard to come by and are usually in inaccessible swamps. Don't get me wrong, I love getting those tapables but not enough to wrestle an alligator for them.

    Logging in each day, there's no tappables at home or within a mile distance. Would be much more enjoyable as I cannot play while driving around town for work. Even if I try, it's not practical since the tapping animations last so long. I'm not really given freetime to play during work, so it's not very fun to play. What even is an adventure?

    Agree as well! I live in a rural area in a small neighborhood- we have tappables to collect... but adventures are a major issue. The closest one is about a 20 minute drive for me at our small town square. Please please please find a way to solve for adventures out in rural areas. Also, can I request an adventure location? There’s a nearby park/playground that would be a great spot for one

    I live in a rural place aswell and although there are plenty of tappables there isn't a single adventure site around. Also, chest seems to spawn mostly in "open field". Problem is those areas are so far from the streets/roads that I would have to trespass and jump over ditches to get to them. (Farmers don't like it if you destroy their crops). Having the rare tappables reachable from the (sideways of a) road would be a lot safer. The normal tappables are more likely to be ignored if you can't safely reach them than chests.
