write what you want on the sign posts

I kind of hate it that making sign posts is useless as it'll allways say "you're here". It's best that you can write what you want so for example may be already there would be a sign post that says "pig village" so you know what you might be comming accross before you go through it.

There is a mod that allows you to write what you want on the signs but already having signs around the world would be nice. Then it would be slightly easier to find stuff.

It's been suggested many, many, MANY times.  Since signs first came into existence I think.  Either Klei doesn't like the idea, or there are technical problems.

the only use of a sign is to get the snity boost when first made

Sadly this is quite true for me to. I would be quite happy to even have some method to differentiate them. Small selection of pictures or something like that. Or color. :) I would love to use signs to mark which wormholes are pairs with each other.

I myself would like to make a village called "spiderville", lol and around the post would be web silk around it. Being able to make them different colour would also be great.

Another use is to use them at wormholes. A matching number of signs denotes which wormhole it will go to.

That's what I use them for, too.

 

They are utterly useless....as if they want to mock you for crafting a sign on an totally unknown land...I mean what is Wilson even thinking...why would he need a sign.....''You are here'' it's just this little insurance of sanity...

 

and that is all about signs

I really do think it's just one of those ideas they gave up on or ran out of time on. They shoulda just removed them in that case

Not totally useless currently.  I've used them to mark fairy rings or other high concentrations of mushrooms.  Or fireflies.   I usually just mark wormholes with a sapling, using the cardinal direction from the wormhole to match them up.     But they definitely could be improved.

Useless items are items that are useful? Never heard that before xD

Whatever that means

a sudden, intuitive perception of or insight into the reality or essential meaning of something, usually initiated by some simple, homely, or commonplace occurrence or experience.

Am I dyslexic or that doesn't make any sense?

 

Seriously I don't get it and can't understand it :(

Ah,

it is someting like an enlightment. A sudden feeling of understanding something entirely.

 

I know those dictionary entries aren't helpfully sometimes

Think of it like a paradox.  We need an utterly useless item, as a base line for judging the usefullness of all other items.  Paradoxically, by serving this purpose, the utterly useless item has a use.  Mind blown!
