Sorry if this has been said before, I scrolled through a lot of topics and saw nothing on it.
ANYWAY
I know when you spawn Lucy in the console, she says things to the other characters.
BUT
The way the text works in DST, do you think her words will show up on the other non-Woodie characters' screens? 

In other words, do you think the other characters hear her?

Just wanted to hear some thoughts!

I think so because in the second play test everyone can hear each other examining things, and Lucy can say things to any character like "Put me down!" so I think she actually talks like one of the characters, therefore other people can hear her.

 Right, that happens when you spawn her using the console, I'm just wondering if they'll keep that going when all the character's text are on each others screens.

Thanks!

I think they will keep it like it is, or have a in game setting to see other peoples examines or not.

Well, that's a bug that they're trying to fix. So I don't think you will be able to hear her in the DST Release

  It's a bug? But doesn't she say something like "You're not Woodie?" 

Maybe it's just something they put in to play around with, but maybe they won't keep it in DST.

I bet she will only be heard by the holder or woodie.

The real thing is: can other chars use Lucy in the DST? Because, since Woody can't really use it without transforming in the werebeaver, any other char would be an awesome lumberjack while woody can do any other thing, like finding food, and just use it when everyone need the werebeaver, like, take on a Queen Spider, werebeaver and wolfgang(mighty) could kill it very easily

Well, actually, the special thing about Lucy is that she never breaks (besides talking, of course).

 Woodie still turns using any other axe, and he still chops just as fast.

  If another character picked up Lucy, they'd just get a chance to use an axe that never breaks.

so, now we will know if lucy really talks or if Woodie is hallucinating.
Yay, another mistery thrown out of the window.

I know it all. And Lucy chops and never breaks, if any ohter char can use it, he/she will be a great lumberjack, thats the point, and then, Woodie can look for food, lets say, Wilson grabs Lucy and starts to cut some trees with a second char, and then, Woodie go and start to look for food, killing some spiders, and things like that. But, maybe, just Woodie will have the hability to use Lucy, or if any other char uses it, Woodie will turn into a Werebeaver anyway( hope they don't do it)

Unless it changes where uniques can be used by other characters, I doube a character unique item can ever be used by other characters, or maybe other than the spawned SPECIFIC character for said item. 

 

See here.

 I think that's true, when it comes to things like Abigail's flower, but why couldn't someone else use Lucy? I could see that being possible. If they can hear her though, she'd be complaining the whole time though!

How do I put this...

 

She wouldn't.

The axe and its talk is in Woodie's head. It's inability to break may or may not be real, but the rest  of it is linked to him.Even if it's an axe. It's why we're not using Willow's lighter with Wilson or Maxwell's codex with anybody else. 

 

 

And from a technical side, the re-coding to make anybody use any character-called item (uniques) outside of the character it was made for is a dang mess. it's not easy and it a ruiner for game balancing reasons. Like Multiplayer, expect this not to even be thought of until DST is completely and utterly finished first, if ever.

She does, though. If you currently spawn her in console, she complains to the player holding her.

Also, I don't think the coding would be any different. The coding is getting the item to work, they're not linked to any character right now as far as I know (besides stuff like the books and abigails flower, which are more complicated). I haven't done it, but I bet if you spawn Willow's lighter in console it would work too. I'll test it out later.

If you spawn her in with console she immediately disappears, like all character specific items.

well, maybe just normal things would be usable by other chars( like Lucy, Willow's lighter, some Wickerbotton books and the Baloons) and the magical stuff will be linked to the owner, and can be used jus by him( the remaining Wickerbotton books, Abgail's flower on the Codex[not the one from Altair])

  Yeah I checked last night, I guess it was just some old lines that were in her script that they never ended up using. My bad. :/ I hardly ever use the console so I thought they were still there.

Are you sure about that?

Well Woodie talks to Lucy like a person  even though no one could hear Lucy unless they hold her (this could mean that Lucy is magic / is possessed, idk but that's my prediction.)

 Also, addressing this, this is not confirmed. There are a lot of reasons why the axe could talk, in different headcanons. That's why I started this thread, to discuss what you guys thinks it means if others can hear her. It's kind of important to his story.

Well, maybe Lucy was Woodie's wife/girlfriend, and he and she went to the Don't Starve world together, but Maxwell transformed Lucy into an axe, but made it a way that she can still talk and "fell things"( like when he will turn into a werebeaver and when it isn't Woodie that's holding her), just to mess with Woodie's head.

 That's an interesting thought! I hope that's not what happened, poor Lucy! 

So, if that was the case, the others should be able to hear her then.

Hmm, I'm excited to find out if they can or not.
