  1. ... Sold. Ah. You play me like a fiddle. Presenting Stomageddon, Dark Lord of All, also known as the Ribbiting One, He Who Rides the Backpack, Conqueror of the Depths, Lord of the Flies, a chaotic neutral deity of causing strife among the humanoids.
  2. I see awesomeness going through the roof in this thread. Great artworks. Subscribed!

    Piggies, WX, comics, Charlie, oh my! Spoiling us rotten, you awesome person, you :hug:. Clever father. Got to love sensible questions. Then, Chester and the puppy. Growling! So many goodies. The collection posts make my day. Finally... coffee. I FEEL LOVED!!!
  4. RRidiculously Awesome.
  5. Thanks a lot. My own coding abilities don't go beyond quoting, but I'd love to play on worlds with, say, just swamps and deserts plus the pig king village in the evergreen forest.
  6. THE SHINY IS OUTSIDE! And INSIDE as well, but that's what you know anyway, you magnificent Gnome-Forged, you!
  7. Savannahs, deciduous forests and arguably mosaic areas are relatively safe, mob-wise (unless you get beefalos in heat, hound waves, meteors or play Webber and get too close). Savannahs feature a lot of grass you can never have too much of. Yes, other biomes have grass, but if you just want to fill your slots with grass, a savannah will be the best. Manure from beefalos can be obtained in other ways (pigs, bunnymen, koalas), they are also for farming (something not everyone cares about besides a few for cosmetics) or as fuel. Rabbits can be found around meadows too, but either way, you will want at least four: for a presti. No four rabbits, no presti, bye, magic. Deciduous forests offer His Plumpness and Glommer, neither of whom you can relocate. You can move pigs, replant birches, bribe catcoons long enough to build a fence around them, mushrooms grow with some randomness. Can't move PK and Glommer though. Yes, I myself find them a bit boring, but they are useful. Mosaic has something awesome: meteor fields. Get renewable rocks on the surface even if you turned tree petrification off. Troll your friends if you're That Guy. Hide in this biome few ever scout thoroughly if you want privacy. Heck, it's even frequently worth it for digging up all this cobblestone. Instead of crafting it, just use your pitchfork. 100 charges included. Finally, the rock den/critterlab. It spawns in the mosaic biome. Finally, these biomes with the exception of the deciduous forest (which you can go around by running a bearger or a gang of chopping pigs through it, have Maxwell's shadow diggers clean up) feature a good deal of space for bases. Wormholes are a great thing too. My good sir, you forgot mob-stomping by tentacles/spiders/merms plus all the loot from these wars. Usually a sinkhole as well. Out of surface biomes, only swamps provide you with fish and frog legs all year round. Play with me, I will show you the ways of the swamp witch. You will never be the same .
  8. Simple: because more often than not since the branches were merged, you will once again see griefers ruining the world, with or without normal players screaming to get out so that they roll back, or reset (thus removing winter), or anything like that. Unless you play on non-default settings, it takes a considerable amount of time to devote before you get to the juicy bits, especially if players literally pape, root and billage the server, picking every sapling close by, killing all tentacles "because they are scary" etc. - not fun. A good portion of people can't/don't want to devote so much time to playing on a random server whose admin they don't know. Even worse on dedis where you don't have an admin 24/7. I've been playing dedi-hopping over the last few months, getting in, getting something good for the collective, handing out my loot and logging off. Every time, my helping spree would be stopped by a griefer, Webber, Wickerbottom or Willow. All in all, it's rather tiringwhen nobody cooperates by talking etc. - ultimately, public servers which go on for some time become recognisable by the fanbase. For example I know I can feel safe on @raoglu's servers in spite of PVP, because the moderating staff reacts to acts of griefing (like burning pighuts just because) and the people who frequent them try to cooperate, even if that means going separate ways. I can't remember when any of my servers was last griefed; somehow they kind of... started avoiding them. If the server's admin is someone you know or heard good things about, you are more likely to take risks like entering in winter. Random servers? Usually a waste of time.
  9. On the map, with your mousewheel. In the game, a mod. Honestly, @ThemInspectors, this is an amazing mod. I can see so many opportunities to use this (once my game works again, that is). Can other modders work off your code to create, say, worlds which are entirely swamp-based? Or have the desert and some swamps here and there?
  10. Not in DS(T). In HERE, only beefalos, pigs, bunnymen and koalefants are allowed to defecate. Problem solved!
  11. Dear Sir/Madam, I would like to ask for your assistance with the issue I am having with the 64-bit version of DST. After the last update, I booted the game up only to find over 200 mods pending enabling (ones which I never subscribed to), making the game unplayable due to asking for them to be turned on, being out of date and some-such. I went to clear the mod cache from the game, it did not work. What I did notice was that I can no longer manually remove anything from my mod directory even though I am the only account on my 64-bit Windows 10 with administrative rights. I decided to uninstall the game, which worked while not removing the mod directory's contents. Trying to install it again results in the error as follows: Deletion of the directory through the command line of my system does not work. I am attaching the last log I have. What additional information should I provide? Yours faithfully, Arlesienne
  12. The Globe of Ragtime Suffering strikes again...
  13. I think I'm keeping a decent Henderson score with @Weirdobob so far.

      Poor Robert.

  14. I have a love-hate relationship with the newest D&D PC; luckily, my players are always there to show me their support and goodwill.
