Naughty & Nice so far!

So, I was very excited to play the new update! Even though it's only been live for a little while for me, here on the East Coast of the US, I wanted to share some things that I've found out:

The Cages: Once you put in a bird (crow or cardinal) you can "harvest" them later -- so it's basically like saving a meal for later!

The Map: Oh I was SO happy to see an update to the map! Biomes and roads are now easily discernible from each other! There's also a nice outline around your character's head so that you can tell where they are at a quick glance -- this feature has got to be one of the best things included in this recent update (at least it is to me!)

Traps: Obviously, they catch live birds and live rabbits now, I have yet to test whether or not the cages will also hold rabbits for "later use" or as pets.

Tallbird Eggs: Soooooo. Hatching yourself some smallbirds is going to be a bit of trial-and-error if you're anything like me. I went and managed to snag myself two eggs for testing. I placed the first egg down by the fire. When it started to get cracks on it, I picked it up and went to examine it in my inventory (it doesn't seem to have any RMB text to it). So, one RMB click and Wilson starts chomping on this semi-hatched egg! "Mmm. Beakey" So, second egg gets put by the fire, but by this point it's dark. The egg sits by the fire all night -- I attempted to pick it up and place it somewhere else after it had started to hatch, but the egg would turn white and start to shiver, so back by the fire it went!

When the sun came up, the egg started to turn red and to sweat. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to move the egg or not, so I picked it up to examine it -- but I didn't try using my RMB this time! But rather than trying to set it down somewhere else, I put it back by the fire..... well, that's not the right thing to do either, apparently!

I'm off to get another egg to do some more testing!

I feel like there were also some changes done to movement and the way the camera works as everything feels and seems a little more smooth-moving to me. My friend confirmed this by stating that she also felt that there was an update in the movement of the characters. Overall it just seems that the animation runs a bit more smoothly.

Bee Boxes: I was having an issue before the update where my bee box would no longer let bees out of the box -- probably because Hounds or my nearby traps had killed them all. But the apiary was still producing honey (albeit at a very slow pace). With the update came new bees to my apiary, and an increase in honey production! At least there was a noticeable difference to me with my singular apiary. I was just happy that the bees came back!

Other important things of note: the Pause button next to the map button. Functions the same as if you hit the esc. key. Pulls up the menu and pauses the game. I assume that pulling up the map also still acts as an effective pause for the game as well. Upon pulling up the menu there is the new "save & quit" feature! I was very excited to try this out, as the ability to save and quit at any point in the day is a big deal. I did, however, notice that there was a thread stating that someone had found a bug where using the save & quit feature removed all their xp and research points. However, as I think the only way to see your XP budget at present is to die (I don't know if you can see it when using a tent to change characters), so I have no way of double-checking that. However after using the Save & Quit feature a couple of times I can safely say that my research points are still hanging around. I'm using the steam build, so I cannot vouch for those using the Chrome version of the game.

So that's what I've found out so far -- some of these things could be wrong, but this is just my experience so far. I, thankfully, have not gotten assaulted by the thief who breaks chests and the like (who is that guy, Krampus?).

To hatch the smallbird:

You simply have to maintain it in the hatching state [rocks back and forth and blue colored] for 3(?) full days.

During the day you can simply leave it out in the sun, although take care not to drop it near pigs or they'll eat it.

At night build a small fire near it, if it starts glowing red, it's too close and will cook, if it's white and shivering, it's too cold and and needs to be closer to the fire.

You can pick up the egg and move it anytime.

Also, you can't feed it anything as far as I can tell and they fall asleep at night time, so it sort of restricts your adventuring at night time.

P.S. I accidentally lost one of my smallbirds to my damn bees while harvesting the bee box, :(

you were right to take the egg that was shivering away, other wise you get wet goop when it hatches, literally. I guess you have to find a middle ground, but i'm terrified to try it, those eggs are a pain to find in my world and there arn't many of them.

Poor poor cooked baby tallbirds, they are so cute and helpless. I just killed my first Krampus, he is a very nice new addition to say the least.

I knew there was something done with the camera and movement! it felt so...smooth.

Also, wasn't the texture of the ground changed? it seems to have more noise now

Grass has a scary sound when it pops up!

ps:Tallbirds are more persistent now, I went to get myself a companion and ended up getting beaked to death...

1.Do the birds die in the cages if you don't feed them or do you get sth. special if you feed them?

2.I love this new map, it looks much better and it's easier to find the place you're looking for.

3.I cooked my first egg, because I clicked to close to the firebit and my second one turned into meat.:(

Thanks for the hints Nintendonuts, hopefully my next egg isn't going to end in my mouth but rather it's going to be a smallbird. :)

So. With my third Tallbird egg, I'm attempting to hatch this bad boy... I put it by the fire until it began to sweat, and then I moved it. When I move it away from the fire, it doesn't seem to get cold during the day. Right now I'm carrying it around in my pocket. :)

And sadly, you cannot put the rabbits into the cages and keep them as pets either :(

Yea, I noticed that the Tallbirds were more persistent in the last update! But, it's fairly easy to kite them around and kill them -- stand in one place until they go to attack, run away during their attack and then run back and smack them before they get into the attack animation again. It may take a while depending on your weapon, but you get two meat when you take one out! I didn't notice anything with the ground -- I'll have to listen in for that!

OMGOSH THANKYOU! I've been doing that, pretty much.... I keep it in my pocket during the day, but I'll try setting it out in the sun somewhere during the day instead!

The reason it seems more smooth is because the FPS isn't capped at 30 anymore, it goes all the way to 60 now.

Ahh~ That explains a lot! It's not a huge difference, in my opinion, but it's noticeable. It looks really good!

1. So far you don't feed them, and they just sort of sit there forever until you pull them out of the cage.

2. I agree!

3. yea, someone just posted a way to hatch the birds, though, so I'm hoping that my third egg will actually hatch!

Sidenote:

Sadly, you cannot put the rabbits into the cages and keep them as pets.

I began collecting birds for the ritual slaughter to summon Krampus, two showed up and hilarity ensued as they messed up my chests.

To the victor go the spoils; http://i.imgur.com/ivUzG.jpg

So to summon Krampus you just catch and slaughter birds? Hm. I may be safe for a little while, then, since I've caught and kept a crow and a cardinal.....

How do you catch a bird? Do you use a bird trap?

Yeah just plant a bird trap down, you can make it quicker by baiting it with a seed each time but generally they just fly right in there.

10 uses per trap and I think I killed 15 or so birds. You can hear Krampus making a hissing noise every time you kill one.

Krampus also hisses when you kill butterflies. What is it like to fight him?

Well, just had a visit from two Krampus at once. I was so convinced that only one could spawn that I left my camp unguarded to chase after it. By the time I got back, the second Krampus was messing with my chests.

Pretty simplistic, he'll/they'll just run to a chest, swipe, run away a little and then repeat until chest is destroyed and move on to the next.

I just attack when he's about to swing at the chest. Only a few swings to kill each one with a spear on Wolfgang.

Might just be me, but seems that rabbits respawning rates at holes has been decreased? :)

I got to kill the Krampus fellow so that was exciting. Other than that, it's been my most deaths to this point... so super.

A bird in a cage can be fed. If you give it a vegetable, it will give 1-3 unique seeds of this vegetable. I already created the plantation of Dragonfruits :cool:
