Dextops Posted November 9, 2022 Share Posted November 9, 2022 The oceans have had a major problem since they were released; Most of the time content is focused on a single location in the ocean. What I mean by this is how when an ocean update is rolled out there is usually a single point to find the ocean content for that and nowhere else. Some examples include the lunar island and moon quay. These things are simply an entire ocean content update, but instead of being several well spread out biomes (or any other term you want to use)\ across this extremely spacious ocean they are a small island that has the content entirely condensed into that place. And even when klei has made the place multiple biomes it is either too few biomes or those biomes are very small, or possibly both. An example of this can be the waterlogged. In my opinion waterlogged is a near perfect update, but the only reason it's only NEAR perfect is because of the fact that there are only like 3-4 spread out across the entire ocean landscape and they're relatively small which make them easy to go across which is extremely troublesome and can make the oceans a pain to explore If this design philosophy continues even if klei made a plentiful amount of ocean updates the oceans would still be lacking compared to anywhere else because how far they spread biomes apart and how few they make of each of them. Simply put biomes are too far and few in-between to be engaging and make travelling extremely cumbersome, especially when taken into account that you travel slower than on mainland making distances feel even longer. This could be fixed with a change in the way they design these biomes by creating them with the intent of making them be sprawled across the ocean in multiple locations, and increasing the sizes of those biomes so that they are easier to come by and reduce the chances of accidentally missing them. Hopefully one day ocean updates will shift focus from making a single island on the ocean, and decide to spread islands across the vast empty space that the ocean currently has. Spoiler also just extremely empty atmospherically but that's for another day Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
