  1. but that doesn't make sense..! EDIT: Oh i see.. It was "You are thoughts" before.. very clever mr. Cactusarms
  2. Waverly! I often think about how her character would be like.. I feel like she should gain bonus hunger/sanity/health when eating frog legs ,have access to the magic tab without the prestihatitator and have frogs being non-hostile to her. For the SW cast, as always, i'd say Wilbur just because he's unique. But i would love all of them to join the cast
  3. I was very happy honestly but i won't use them, i'll probably trade them or sell them on steam to get some money.. i want the woodie skins!
  4. STORY TIME! The shaking screen, one of the worst things in don't starve. It makes people unable to focus during fights against giants, it gives you an headache and it is disabled on almost everybody's client for this. And then unexperienced people who finally come to summer suddently lose everything to a sinkhole and ask me "Onetel-sama Onetel-sama! what happened?". And i answer "If you had the screen shaking enabled you would've seen the Antlion coming". ACTUAL TOPIC I understand that screen shaking is one of the core points of the game, to warn you about earthquakes, mr. Antlion and even an enraged deerclop coming your way. But hell, that thing gives me Nausea! I always put it on during summer because i'm too lazy for the Antlion (honest .. ) but most people don't and end up getting caught by surprise. Could Devs think about lowering the shaking just a tiny bit, or if there is , a mod that stops the shaking for giants but leaves it for any other event? I already have a mod that lowers the sanity sound to 0-25-50-75% so that your hears don't have to explode! DISCUSSION: What are your opinions about screen shaking ? Do you keep it enabled the whole year or just when the antlion is being a cry-baby who wants toys?
  5. I think there are already skins for the normal Backpack D:
  6. People i play with always have this off because it's either annoying or hard to focus for them while it's enabled I'm 100% sure that it happens from time to time. During summer i never move so much from my campfire, i like to relax and stay alive without too many problems. This is why i would be able to tell if my character suddently started speaking and warned me about an incoming antlion attack. Just to make sure i tested this again today. With screen shaking disabled i wasn't able to get any notification from the attack (playing as WOODIE , requires further testing with other characters). Turning screen shaking on let's woodie comment on the attack before it happens (tested with the rollback feature twice) In the caves they will comment no matter what options you are using. I think it's because the audio-file for the earthquake and cave-ins always starts playing when they are happening. I can assume that the character will "comment" on the attack only when an audio file or a visual file are played, and since you get no music-change or noise while you are outside the caves maybe that the script for the comment doesn't start Remember that i only tested this with woodie and (3 webbers with screen shaking disabled on a Klei official server) and we all noticed that there was no warning comment for it. Requires further testing with other characters
  7. I find them cooler too D: It adds fear when they are approaching.. But i just get Nausea because of it! Maybe it's just me and a few other people, but just like games should give a "color blind" mode for people who are color blind, even this small scenario where the shaking screen can cause sickness to someone should be able to be tuned or turned off without having to pay a price FUN FACT: If you have screenshaking off and the antlion prepares his attack, your character WON'T SAY anything. You basically become Wes. You have no visual clue of what's going to happen and your character is not going to warn you either. If you have it on every character will say something about the incoming danger and everything is fine The only solution is having 1 dude in your base having the screen shaking turned on and wait for his quote about what's going to happen
  8. BORING STORY TIME, SKIP IF NOT INTERESTED: I love how Bernie works. Even if most people don't see its potential, having a bernie ready to protect your bums (and those of every other player in the server) while you are fighting a deerclop with 0 sanity is a true lifesaver. You literally don't have to worry about the nightmares during long fights, and can prevent you getting ambushed by nightmares while you are not paying attenction. Sadly you have to waste 1 inventory slot to carry Bernie with you at all times. I know you could leave him in the base.. but usually: a) Someone takes him without knowing how it works b) You store in a chest. Someone notices it and places it on the ground. As soon as players go insane they just ignore the nightmares and watch as Bernie gets eaten alive instead of going to help. c) Despite you never going insane , other people will blame you if you use the sewing kit to repair Bernie because "it's a waste". It's my bear okay!? Furthermore Bernie is not unique to Willow. Everybody can take him. This means that once a Willow dies, just like her lighter, people can still use her items. Basically one could spawn as willow, suicide and leave the server while still helping others. How would a Woodie main feel if any other character could chop as fast as him? MY SUGGESTION (Important part ): So.. unless we all learn that Bernie is made just to buy you some time against nightmares and he still needs help , i feel like Bernie needs to be reworked. How about devs making it "attached" to Willow like a backpack, so that everytime that someone's sanity drops below 30% it magically "spawns" under Willow and stays there until she picks him up again (or.. hits him to despawn him like you would despawn Abigail or Shadow puppets). Another solution would be to make Bernie a special backpack for Willow only that can be placed on the ground to work as usual. I understand that Willow's mechanics are not going to be reworked because she's way too strong compared to other characters ( ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ sarcasm ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ) but at least rework her items!
  9. Woodie: Hello Mr. Pig, i will now feed you since my ability allows me to make you follow me for twice as long as other characters! Pig: YOU IS FRIEND *36 seconds later , dusk comes* *pig disappears* Is it just me? I keep losing my pigs when dusk comes. Hell they even refuse to come by the fire and/or sleep on the ground. They just start running around screaming for help and i end up losing their attenction after dusk comes..! I used to be able to bring them to my base and use them as a sanity-boost while they were sleeping , i used to give them football helmets to never lose them.. and yet since a few game updates they just disappear once dusk comes. Am i doing something wrong? EDIT: apparently the fatties are willing to follow me if i turn my lantern/torch on... And somebody said taming a beefalo was hard..
  10. When you fail your job just right God Bless whoever did this picture
  11. Today i used my first "cheat out of here" rollback We were in summer, 74 days survived on a public server ( ♥ i'm so proud!!) and suddently antlion starts an attack. Ofc i enable my "Screen Shaking" so i could run away in time, but other people didn't and were quite surprised about what just happened. They had never seen the antlion and they didn't know they had to turn screen shaking on, so i just used a rollback ^_^ Plus i use it everytime i get griefed.
  12. She's pretty bad at it anyway ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  13. Characters should be added from shipwrecked to the DST game just because the more characters = the better. Characters don't have to be good to be played, they can be a challenge, they can be fun, they can be just nice with their sounds and quotes (Woodleg ♥) If SW as a whole gets ported i'd rather have it as a world generation option, so that servers could be split between SW and RoG. I don't want a server that has both types of content because that would be WAY too much. It would add a lot of variety to the game though to be able to choose which "game" you want to host your world in. But there is something more important to do before SW gets ported: KILL. CHARLIE.
  14. OFF TOPIC: IMB4 new character gets announced: Wolfie , the Dog-Man-Person Perk: Wolfie can craft Hound mounds. Now you can break yours without having to fear other people blaming the **** out of you and quitting your server for that. (I think there is a modded character that does this) BACK TO TOPIC: I don't see the use of hound mounds either, unless you wanna create a safe-way with 100+ tooth traps you can farm monster meat from spiders and get gems from Earthquakes and Tumbleweed (ah.).. so yeah, i'm curious as well, why shouldn't i break them if they are dangerously close to something i want to protect (pigs, for example)
  15. I understand clearly what you mean, just because he doesn't have disadvantages that doesn't make him a "good" character overall, but he is a good starting character for sure. And after all , we are all free to play what we want (see Wes). Yet again when i play Wilson i know what i'm playing. I can't expect much from the most simplistic character out there. But when i pick Willow, with my old memories of DS , i know what i'm really missing on this character, and this is what i would call a real shame. I hope Willow gets some love.
  16. Sadly i could not take a screenshot of this. I was playing on a public server, after ~66 days a full moon got me by surprise while we were all camping The whole server (8 people) wrote in chat "F*** " Beaver can give you some pretty funny moments to be honest
  17. Exactly. She does not need a buff. She needs a revamp! And i don't agree. You can't call Wilson the "worst character", i'm sorry. He is the only character with no real disadvantages, so it will ALWAYS be the best character for newcomers. Maybe you don't remember it, but we've all been noobs who died on day 21 long time ago. All i say is: Willow has potential. Devs just have to bring it out
  18. This is a Willow/Bernie topic!! Let's not move it somewhere else please
  19. it is not "infinite", but collecting light bulbs (20+) takes less then 1 minute with a lucky cave spawn and will make your lantern last over 2 in game days
  20. same. I hate listening to non-game music while playing, distracs me too much False, you get the rare blueprint for the lazy deserter immediately instead of wasting a lot of beach toys and hope to get it!
  21. You pretty much depend on a Wickerbottom in that case , which is not picked 100% of the times, expecially in small servers. Wx-78 is still one of my favorite btw I just can't always rely on somebody else Not exactly. A book can be read 5 times before disappearing. A Bernie has 100% durability that can be fixed an unlimited amount of time by a sewing kit by any other character. Furthermore you'd need to still have a Maxwell online for that, who again, isn't picked 100% of the times
  22. But how is this "willow unique"? i mean one could spawn as willow, craft them, leave and Job's done! It should feel more rewarding to play one character over the other, like when you play a full-grown magnificent beard Wilson and you know you can go out in the winter for a very very long time , or when your books revive an entire farm as wickerbottom. You know.. unique stuff She needs a boost somehow, and i feel Bernie could be the right direction to start with for developers!
  23. One part of my post is a lie. Guess which one is it..
  24. Meh i don't feel like it should be used as a mean of cooking. Why would you cook your stuff "on the run"? Cooked vegetables (which you find by exploring) last a lot less than their non-cooked variants Cooking monster meat isn't needed since you are Willow anyways Cooking normal Meat and morsels .. meh. If the lighter took 0% durability from cooking it would be a little bit more useful. i don't understand why i should waste 1 inventory space to bring with me something to cook. 2 if you count Bernie.
