Tips on how to be Courteous to Fellow Players

160 posts in this topic

Agreed, sadly it sucks to see 2-3 Wilsons running around, however, if a full Wolfgang is around, lots of beard hair, lots of health, lots of effigies. 

A Rule:

  • The Bees and the Birds: Tell players to leave the bee boxes alone, wait until a certain time to get the honey, and plz, let no one eat the bird in the cage.

Oh, I still kind of feel like a bit of a third-wheel idiot when I join large servers that have been going for a long time, too.  It's like...you already have all this stuff...exactly what can I do (that would actually be useful)? 

So I basically just wander around gathering anything useful, the way I do when playing singleplayer, and hope that SOMEthing of that will turn out to be needed once I get back to camp.  : P

And I die sometimes too--usually to being way out in the world, away from anything helpful--when a HUGE wave of hounds shows up. Heh.

Another tip:

tell players not to put flingomatics near a campfire.

I know of a good tip I didn't learn of until later:

If you die and are stuck as a ghost for a while, don't go haunting everything.  A good majority of stuff have negative consequences to your hauntings (mainly turning pigs into werepigs, summoning Treeguards, turning flowers into evil flowers, etc.).  There are a few positive ones (like growing your farm's crops) but it might be best to not haunt anything...except for the Florid Postern if you're on an Endless mode server.

But that's all I got since a lot of other great tips have been said already.

Never just grab what's in the crockpot unless you cooked it yourself.  Always ask!

It depends on who I am playing with. At some point, I just expect you to take the food if I prepare lots of food. Asking whether you can take it will just waste our time. Just take it and make sure you contribute is all I ask.

Sure, if we are low on food and there is only one crockpot with food, then that would be the appropriate time to ask.

That's pretty much what I meant--the last part.  If it's early in the game, you don't have many resources yet and multiple people are hungry, and you cook something for _you_ but someone else grabs it...HEY!  When things are plentiful later on, sure, you can be more casual about it.

That particular "rule" isn't based off of numerous of my own experiences or anything, noooo...

Oh, and the haunting thing--two words:

Fire.  Hounds. (In the middle of winter, when you just naturally assume it IS okay to fight hounds in camp!  MacTusks (and their hounds) EVERYWHERE + newbie + ghost = OH MY GOD WHY IS EVERYTHING BURNING.)

People grabbing your food is especially bad if you're one of the types that will wait until your hunger is below 15 before eating so that the rest of the team is okay.

I've never done this in practice since I normally base alone, but if you're a ghost and can be revived, you could ask if people if they want treeguards/werepigs/dark petals. Werepigs give beter loot than normal pigs, and the other two are magic ingredients if your team has a presto/shadow manipulator already. Even hounds can help farm red and blue gems you need.

Clearly don't unleash haunted things on the unprepared and unexpecting, but ghosts can be useful if they're under control. It never hurts to ask!

And dark petals would be probably the best one, since the evil flowers don't get up and walk around in your face/attack you directly.

Speaking of, anybody else have this weird thing I had once, where I got some evil flowers on the full moon, and then the bees pollinated them and they _spread_ everywhere?  I swear, it's like they were cross-breeding the evil and normal flowers.  After a while my base was surrounded with them no matter what the moon phase; it was weird.

Then again, that was also the year of the Summer of Death, so I might've been glitching all around.

When a Bee pollinates six flowers of the same kind in a row, the breed of flower it pollinated will be mapped to the Bee's memory and later reproduced if the Bee is off-screen and unable to pollinate other flowers in range. This only happens rarely.

Got another one for Wilson and Webber:

If you're about to leave a server, shave first. Even if you leave just one silk or beard hair, it's still a nice gesture to leave everything behind for the other players - your beard included.

Oh yeah!  Definitely.  I've been there when a Wilson or a Webber was about to leave, and they did just this.  "Can I borrow your razor?  Thanks." (hair/web on ground)  "Seeya!"  (So-and-so has left the game.)

And don't tell anyone yo are op player who prepare to winter in autumn's day 10 in place to goo and kill dragonFly

And remember you can't help to all players.

More new comers take to base, then bigger is risk. Iff you see Willow then risk is bigger:D 

Don't ask to many questions. If you see player wont answer than don't ask again, or you may start a conflict on empty place, with all following effects. (kick, ban, grief, reset )

And if you see and idiots (not helping, kicking ghosts who is not afk, base not for you"you are not welcome" giving names for coalelephants, conflicting about food) than its after you to chose. take hammer "'žanis:D" and torch.

Hey, what's wrong with naming animals?

Are you saying asking questions is bad?

Hammering and burning down someone's base, even if they're rude or you believe them to be idiotic, is definitely not Courteous behavior and should not be encouraged.

i mean after taking hammer and torch need just goo away from them, hammer an torch will bee needed for survival, whats to matter with you people, if some one says crowbar then all thinking about smashing heads. If someone says saw than = slaughter, but those are instruments meant for work:(((

Do not dis the pet poop machine. The pet poop machine is good.

On that note, if there's a koalefant penned in or free-roaming near base without the tracker actively hunting it, leave the koalefant alone. They could be being kept around for other reasons. Poop, hound distraction, emergency-only food/vest, heck maybe even just for a no-maintenance pet.

If you didn't track it, don't kill it.

A side note, why this thread is still alive and threading? No more new ideas left I assume.
