From the rules book, during the SURVIVAL phase, i konw castaways have to eat and rest,but the rest is not real rest,'if the campfire is lit,each castaway recovers 1 energy.if it isn't,each castaway loses 1 energy'.
Why don't they ly down under the shelter and have a sleep at night? i mean because people sleep at night,so the castaways should get a free rest action during the SURVIVAL phase.

This aspect of the game doesn't make sense to me.

I can build an awesome shelter and gain lots of energy every time I "rest".
But at night, I either gain 1 or lose 1 energy based solely on the camp fire, regardless of the level of my shelter.
It just doesn't make any sense.

Eg, cold stormy weather and resting in my shelter could give 3 energy without fire.
Hot balmy night, without fire, and I lose 1 energy.
How does this work?

I don't think a turn is necessarily a day...

When you do a rest action, you sleep... If you don't sleep, you get tired.

If the fire isn't lit, your tasks are harder... you have to spend energy. If it's lit, they are easier giving you a small amount of time to recuperate.
