Hi

I can't read the lore nuggets on loading screens, as the loading time is a way too short. Is there a place where i can found them ? (nothing in comprendium).

 

Thanks ;)

"I stumbled upon a rather suspicious mound of dirt... perhaps it was left by a creature of some sort? This may require further investigation..." -W

"I find myself returning more and more frequently to my magnificent science machine, busying myself with prototyping new tools to aid in our survival. After all, I must do something to keep myself sane in this strange place..." -W

"I fear I may no longer be able to trust my own eyes. I've been catching glimpses of strange shadowy forms at the edges of my vision with increasing frequency... surely they can't really be there?" -W

"They say the Shadow Queen herself comes at night to snatch up anyone foolish enough to wander in the dark..." -W

"I finally worked up the courage to explore the underground caverns. To my surprise, I found there was ample light provided by a most curious glowing plant that seems to grow naturally throughout the cave system. I've harvested some bulbs for further study." -W

"The Pig men seem to harbor a deep dislike for the Constant's more monstrous denizens, attacking them on sight. While I personally can't blame them, it does pose a bit of a problem for some of my compatriots..." -W

"Could've sworn I saw one of the trees movin' when I was out choppin' firewood... must've been a trick of the light." -W

"It turns out that Koalephants are a bit hardier than I expected. I (quite sensibly) decided to take a... strategic retreat until I'm better prepared." -W

"You know what they say, you can't get charcoal without burning down a few trees!" -W

"Blast this heat! Where's a nice, chilled drink when you need it?" -M

"The rain is proving to be a greater hindrance than I first anticipated. As if being soaked to the bone isn't dreadful enough, my tools keep slipping from my hands when I try to make use of them!" -W

"I experimented with making a rudimentary compass and discovered that this place does in fact seem to have a magnetic North. Curiously, it also pointed out the positions of my fellow camp mates who, as it turned out, had already crafted similar compasses of their own." -W

"A flare was sent up from the forest last night. I know I should have set out immediately to help, but... well... I suppose I hesitated too long by the comforting glow of my campfire, and before I knew it the flare had faded from view. I do hope whoever it was is alright..." -W

"I've finally perfected my design for an ingenious (if I do say so myself) device that stores important garden-based knowledge. Certain naysayers might point out that it looks like nothing more than an overturned flowerpot worn on the head... some people simply don't have an eye for science." -W

"Once I've perfected a recipe, I find it helpful to write it down. Luckily, I've been able to cobble together a rough cookbook for just such a thing out of some spare pieces of parchment. Now my mind is free to worry about more immediate things...\" -W

"Recipes are useful, but a true chef knows the importance of experimenting with new ingredients and flavors, and this world certainly provides an abundance of unusual things to choose from." -W

"The bushes I replanted by the camp are looking sickly... I suspect they'll require some extra care before they can produce any berries again." -W

"We shouldn't hurt things that don't hurt us. If we're mean, bad old Mr. Krampus will come..." -W

"Last time I baited my hook with berries I caught more fish than I could carry, but when I tried today? Barely a nibble! Guess the berry trick only works on some of 'em." -W

"What strange new islands and creatures might I encounter if I journey out to sea? I shudder to think... but curiosity has a tendency to get the better of me..." -W

"We nearly lost one of our number today. In a mad daze I created... something... that managed to pull our friend back to the land of the living, but... whatever it was, I fear I cannot rightfully say it was within the realm of science..." -W

"Today I was surprised to come upon a cobbled road - how did this hallmark of civilization come to be in this untamed wilderness?" -W

Press <any key> to continue would solve this.

(Only at the loading screen when initially logging into the world.)

Tho people would most likely complain about having to press one key to get out of the loading screen cause pressing 1 more button is so much strain..

If Klei added this and made us not spawn into the world or invincible until we pressed said key, then this would be very very good for us because we spawn in the world BEFORE we can see the world and there's also initial lag from loading in. You said only at the character select menu but this would be very beneficial anywhere. (Finally would be able to go up into a Forest shard without having to worry about being obliterated by Batilisks)

"Maxwell (née William Carter)..."

It's french and it's "né" ("née" is for a girl). Why french words in Maxwell quote ?

It's a word that means "formerly known as."

Yeah, I SHOULD have gotten a new  computer a long time ago, but as it is I believe I'm running a...(checks the case) Microsoft Potato?  Takes a long time to load, but at least the game does run smoothly afterwards.  It'd be much more annoying the other way--SEEMS to have loaded quickly, but then you keep getting random load spikes...

Spoiler

 

One nice thing about the longer load time is that I can enjoy how often the quote _matches_ or is at least appropriate with, the vignette being shown. Like, if it talks about Willow's past, it'll show the picture of her with the orphanage burning down in the background.  (Of course, it can only do that one because I HAVE that vignette.)  Or one time, I was loading into a game where I'm playing as custom-character Charlie, and it told me about Maxwell's background as a stage magician.  What.  XD

(And then of course there's that time the game wouldn't load at all, and the background picture was the Year of the Catcoon "Plz...plz can I has fun thing????  :(" kitty reaching towards the toy fish sadly.)

Yeah, sometimes it'll have the description of the vignette instead of a tip or lore nugget which is really cool

I couldn't fine né with one E in the English dictionary, only née with two E's. In French, it may well be incorrect. In English, there may not be an alternative.

FTFY.  : P

That's not the original quote, but the basic idea of "English is the mess that it is because it robs other languages for whatever it feels like" is still there.

Brazilian Portuguese in a nutshell but it only steals from English.
