I think there is a big difference, when a small community uses natural resources to survive, vs faceless mega corporation farming things to extinction to maximise profits. This sim lies somewhere in between those two realities, and so it’s easy to get bugged by it.
Native americans used every part of the animal, and they had great respect for it. It was a symbiotic relationship with nature. The commercialization of that process, at least for me, raises a lot more questions. Life feeds on life, in one way or another, and I don’t have any problems with subsistence living, but it does tend to take on more questions when it becomes industrialized.
