Well.in singelplayer dont starve this is theoreticaly possible but i see no way of even remotely integrating this into DST.

We have some things that scale with day count(varg chance,hound wave size...)

But having things that are 200times stronger spawn on New player ,because they joined a dedicated Server on day 350or so would simply be to extreme.

I think the way it is now works perfectly.

Yep, a great example of gear scaling with the world and enemies. Really could be cool, the more I think about it the more I realize there is already a lot of ways to introduce world changing mechanics like this! The atrium portal releasing gorge/forge biomes/enemies. Most recently the meteor that caused the water to change and the lunar island to appear... could fall after some kind of world event, meaning the water would be the classic cardboard water until this "world changing event" occurs, causing the meteor to fall, the lunar island to appear, and the tides to... well, turn from cardboard to the actual traversal water we have now! Of course the lunar island would have to be ... very different... and these are extreme changes........... perhaps more of dreams than suggestions unfortunately......... But like I said, the current road Klei is taking isn't leading anywhere.
