Think like it's melting instantly, actually not sinking.

Why does ice melt instantly?

probably game counts it as rock, instead of what it should be. Actually I would welcome little little reality and stop ice from sinking.

instead I would ask to make hounds teeth sinkable...

but teeths are not so heavy, if i would see a teeth float i would not be surprised

ice sinks because shipwreck would crash if all the ice did not melt when it landed in the ocean. dst was made using a lot of the same code and so ice does melt in dst too

but isnt the "ice" from shipwrecked hail, that needs to be fused to make ice? I havent played much shipwrecked so im likely wrong

It sure is a weird mystery. All inventory items float by default, so they had to go out of their way to make ice sink. I guess the devs just consider ice to be a rock? Ice's file is called "inv_rocks_ice" after all so shrug.

it is hail but it is the same item type as ice, sorry i shortcutted to keep it succinct. refined hail and unrefined hail both sink though XD

To be fair, ice in real life is dedicated as a rock. 

To also throw your head through a twirl, melted rock is lava. Ice is a rock. Water is magma. We also DRINK that said water. 

 

WE ARE LAVA MONSTERS!

 

Your Welcome!

 

Sincerely,

probably for the same reason a person can eat infinite stacks of ice in a moment with no health penalty

this is not something to say clever, we do not need that much of reality you talk just nonsense. and we need at least this much of physics.

The better question is: Is ice wet? 

To answer your question: Ice sinks because Don't starve physics go brrrrrrrrr.

DST's ocean is actually just burning hot and that's why players die when they fall in it, not because they can't swim.

Remember, in SP glaciers, when mined, also give rocks, so I imagine just like how they are called ice rocks in the code that they share the same behavior

They don't really die, they just wash up to the closest shore. Please don't traumatize me for the times I've abandoned ship as Wurt to get to the shore I desired.
