What are the parameters to spawn a Message in a Bottle?

They spawn periodically every one-to-two days when the player is on the ocean. The wiki also states they spawn naturally in the coastal ocean, but I'm not sure if that's actually true.

Regardless, the only real way to amass them is to find any excuse to go sailing. Go visit the crabby hermit, the lunar island, waterlogged biome, salt stacks or sea weeds.

Die and starting new world probably?

I really wish Klei would update the game so Random TRULY MEANS RANDOM.

In fact: That’s #1 on my requests for the next QoL update.

I agree, it would be great. On top of making seasons vary in length each year, I would make it so each year no more than 2 seasons can be of 0 length, to prevent 10k day seasons like OsiriCousland explained. You should suggest your idea here (post below), unless you already have. Hopefully, Klei sees it because honestly I'd much rather have a change to random seasons that a scienceless cookbook. I really liked the old recipe, despite seldom crafting it.

Pretty much what Mike23Ua said lol.

I once started a world with 10k day autumn, with absolutely no other seasons. I promptly deleted it.

Oh, now I understand. a never-ending season because all others are on 0. thanks!

Yeah uhh I only have one question, I got bored last night and decided to go through a bunch of Klei’s old animated shorts freezing them frame by frame: so, what in the Heck is THIS?!

The thing bulging on the top right looks like one of the plants in hamlet, but I doubt hamlet was already in the works. Or maybe, when that short was made, they had already thought of carnivorous plants, but decided they didn't fit in DS, and picked it up again only later, who knows. Having carnivorous cactuses in RoG's desert would have been great though.

Day 181, where is my volcano? XD

Spoiler

You have to look in the deep ocean. Here, perhaps? I think the circle on the right is the less likely.

the skull island is on the bottom right

You're right, I kept looking for it and couldn't see x.x I just remember one time I got a world without one and was wondering if it was common

I found it already, but thats a big brain tip I never knew!

Another question: Using Wickers Applied Horticulture on around 6 farms + some grass (so, not a lot) in shipwrecked seems to lag the game for a moment, with occasional lag appearing afterwards and even a pc crash for me (which might be more because of my toaster pc, but I don't know). Has anyone ever had a similar issue or did I just have really bad luck?

If a Wickerbottom use the “The end is Nigh!” book on WX-78, every single lighting counts as 1 day charged, and does it stack for every single lightning or there is a max cap?

I went to the depths of the forums to find this for you, you're very welcome.

It is indeed.  I did however only show for a full book reading, which is 16*5 strikes.

It actually didn't change!

I redid the same thing reading from the source files, but there is the assumption that a whole book was being read.

Here's a more complete table showing all of the number of reads, up to using 3 books:

Thank you so much! I’m trying to make my close friend who I play with every weekend,experience other characters other than Wilson, Oc there’s nothing wrong with liking him, but there are so many different ways of playing the game, and IMO he would be a great WX main, so I need this info to show him, again, thank you so much : )

What do I do to spend my 19 dragonpie best in shipwrecked in monsoon season? Seriously, I made all that stuff to fight the Quacken, not realizing that a) it is pretty pathetic and b) IT DOESN'T DAMAGE YOU.

I don't want all that stuff got to waste, any good use for it?

A lot of people are going to hate this question but.. I don’t care, Klei if you actually ARE making an Uncompromising Mode for DST… will you PLEASE consider reducing the amount of inventory slots the player can have down to like 6-8? 
 

I play State of Decay 2 on Nightmare Mode… trust me: An inventory of 6-8 works just fine.

I feel like inventory management in DST isn’t that big of a deal because unless your just really really horrible at managing inventory.. (please see above 6 slots nightmare difficulty) you will never EVER have a problem managing inventory in DST.

If an official Uncompromising mode is actually being developed will it reduce the amount of inventory slots available to the player?

Or maybe even pull a Fallout feature: The more stuff you carry the more it weighs you down?

I feel like a lot of people who play DST have never actually played an uncompromising sandbox survival game… Will you please consider these for your vision of what a Klei Official Uncompromising Mode should be?

Thank You <3

Does an AoE attack from a mob on land damage boats (ie: Bearger slam)?

Yes if the boat is in range of the hit.
