Renewable rocks?please...

Recommended Posts

I would say... At the very least they should replenish at day 100 or something... However I don't know... It's unrealistic - And by this I mean too unrealistic for Don't Starve's standards.Edit: Then again, saying that, Maxwell could just appear on Day 100 and just be like "Hey Pal, I see you are running out of rock... Want me to help you out?"Edit 2 - More ideas: We could have a gem/crystal of some sort that when put into a (expensive) machine and replenishes the rock... Or makes Maxwell appear and do it... I don't know though.

No.In real life would rocks be reneweble?If you have need of rocks and you feel like having stacks of them just use the teleporto 2 or 3 times,break all the rocks you can find in a word and move on until you find one that you like and have decent rock sources

If you are insane and chop a tree it drops rocks instead of wood. No more limited rocks.

There you go! That solves everything. Case closed.

That's what I was saying

Maybe I haven't played it that much, ignore whatever I am saying it's probably wrong... Except this line of course.

I agree that we should have some infinite source of rocks, or atleast a way te refresh it somehow. My thought is that the upcoming implementation of caves might help us get just that.

Meh, if you lack of something, then you lack of something, this is a survival game afterall. Though, having a renewable replacement for rocks is a good idea, like gold for flint (oh the irony), it just should be really really really hard to get.

Please don't.Rocks are one of the few items that you need to use wisely and not spam the world with stone walls mazes and such.A little bit a resource management is great to the game.Flint is non renewable too, but you don't use that much because golden tools are way better, razors don't break so you just need one anyway. I think just spears need flint in late game, but if you farm tentacle spikes you won't even need that.So Rocks shouldn't be renewable, for resources management sake.But I think that when caves get implemented there will be rocks there too, so we can get a bunch more.

yes, i agree with that..but its just that you'll be forced into an option of using the teleporter...its not because you didnt use your rocks wisely but you just survived very long and the resources just wont keep up with your greatness..

flint will run out if you survive very long...you need a spear to fight tentacles to get the spikes and you are too busy preparing for winter,making traps,weapons,hunting for winter clothing...i just thought maybe the devs can make them respawn in every 30 days or so..maybe 5 rocks a day..i survived 5 winters in my sandbox world but unfortunately, flint run out...i had no other choice but to use the teleporter..i know there are other ways to fight but i prefer to fight with my spear...

The whole rock problem appeared with walls, and wall don't have much purpose yet. Beside that if you have time to build a castle in survival game then something is wrong.

In real life the majority of the planet's walkable surface is made of rock. Doesn't take a gentlemen scientist to learn to use the pick at the ground under his feet.

i don't even build walls on my base...:grumpy: why do you ppl think i'm making a castle or stone wall mazes?im using the flint from rocks/boulders....my sandbox world is missing the pig king so i ran out of gold too,so i use flints for axe/pick/shovel..basic tools for survival..but the game only gave me the option to use the teleporter...its not that im not good at surviving but the world didnt offer me enough resources...

There will probably be caves in game so there is chance for more rocks/flint. If not offcial then you will find some mod for that for sure.

i just wish some alternative items for non renewable resources, like golden spear and the pig king should always appear on sandbox mode....

Pig king should always be on sandbox maps, if you had maps without him it was a bug.There will be more weapons soon, and fighting with spear will not be great idea, even now you can get good amount of tentacle spikes.

Maybe there will be more rocks in the new caves. I don't know if Klei will add them, but I heard rumors in some threads. :DOr they can add some stone golems who drop rocks?
