This content is still in the middle of being developed, so I think it's too early to say it needs to be "fixed".

Now with that being said, I'm not opposed to the idea of merging the two celestial tabs together. It always felt like the orb should have been apart of the altar.

While it is still in development, there still can't be little QoL changes along the way too. There is also the fact that establishing this now instead of later would make it so that they could make other items as worthwhile as the Celestial Alter and the Portal Build Thingy.

I refuse to actually comment on the Lunar Island, because it’s not the island I’m worried about being “Fixed” it’s the Ocean itself.. it’s too peaceful.

Just play Shipwrecked DLC to get a better understanding of what I am talking about first you have the Sea (Which is What the entirety of DST is currently..) Then you have the DEEP SEA (the water is a Darker Color and This is the area most hostile mobs that want you dead are)

I just want more unique stuff to craft at the altar. The only non-decorative things you can make are a dark sword alternative and a better axe. That's it, there's nothing else.

Yeah, the axe is really good for toadstool, but that's the most it can do.

I like the current celestial orb as a base decoration so I'd be sad to see it no longer appear at all, but the practical non-crafting use I put it to is that its position is always visible on the map, to everyone, whether or not it's in a character's inventory. That makes it a great "Hey, look over here!" beacon no matter what everyone else is doing or whether they know how to use a compass or have enough gold to make one. I don't think any other items do that - moonlenses don't work as map markers in inventory - so if the celestial orb was patched out, or made into an upgrade for the lunar island altar in the style of the Ancient Pseudoscience Station, it would be nice to have some kind of fancy moonlens or something you could do the same thing with.

Is it?

Not trying to be funny or anything I might have missed it, have Klei said to make something out of the lunar islands still?

Maybe you missed the secret in the roadmap 2020 post.

Sadly, it would be a secret I don't know about, I had found some crazy lines in the first picture w/ Wilson/Wolfgang/Wendy with GIMP  but nothing specific about plans/future content. However the existence of the picture is a clue they hadn't finished the ROT updates yet.

Yes the roadmap 2020 replaced the 2019 one.

So.... Only devs could say if we're waiting for fixes or adds ? 

Please..... Pleeeeease....... PLEASE..... Could we have real and concret news about RoT before we want to fix... Not the game but Klei themselves !

Love and peace.

tbh if the content is going to be so good/op, I'd add a boss (possibly a few gestalts possessing a few rocks to make a Moon Golem) which as long as it exists nothing can be done to the island, as well as it'd teleport to the players entering the island. Ya know, there is a small difference between the ruins being that far away with some obstacles in the way and constant darkness and making a boat and sailing for a few minutes

More often than not that means just a big "Here is base, come and burn it!" to griefers. Yeah, I very-well-know the "we shouldn't center our ideas on the griefers' existence" argument yet the core-of-matter is just that: on public servers the most (but on any type of servers really) you want to weed out trolls/leechers/noobs and such if wanting your base to.. you know, keep existing. Thus is no coincidence on most log-running servers Moon Orb is either walled behind 2-3 rows of Moon Walls at Spawn Gate or on a boat in middle of nowhere-Ocean. Game is first and foremost a Survival so "Where base?!" only signals to me the one who utters it right after popping in world either doesn't care about this aspect and/or only wants to leisure in base at your expense most-often-than-not. Prove you can survive, can carry your own weight and find base on your own - or make yourself one mini if so desire and deem necessary. Thus a solid "No!" for the great "Hey, look over here!" from me.

 

Otherwise yes, OP's main discussion points - make Moon Isles an attraction with high risks / high rewards (perhaps in form of a boss and/or some special Moon Cave with very interesting loot table), give a reason to recurrently go back to Lunar islands (maybe make Stone Fruit Bushes un-rootable and only multiply them via already-existing Sproutings) plus make character-swapping dependent on Celestial Altar (process of making Moon Idols only available via said Celestial Altar, and scrap or give other function to Celestial Orb) - are valid and even dare-I-say necessary in making Moon trips rather mandatory and more exciting; also Ocean needs to be a bit more dangerous and more dynamic, with changes depending on Seasons - add waves mechanic, winds etc.

That's not my use for it as a solo player, but couldn't you use the moonlense and just drop it when you need to signal?  Also isn't there a flare now?  idk as solo player I'm not sure how those work really :\

Great... now the internet is going to explode with Japanese anime vegetable girl drawings all over EVERYWHERE! and it will probably skyrocket into popularity that it gets its own TV Series.

(In a world where Spongebob can exist.. I’m pretty sure Anime Vegetable women can’t be too far from the realm of existence)
