Does anyone have a list of what changes as the days progress?


Recommended Posts

In Sandbox mode? With regards to difficulty, specifically.

 

I know the hound attacks get bigger, but beyond that does anything else change from one year to the next?

 

Also, when you move to a new world, it is supposedly more difficult right? Does anyone know just what this means in terms of game mechanics?

Hound waves get bigger and the warning time decreases (up to day 100), plus the chance of red/blue hounds (depending on season) increases (up to day 75).

 

More Krampi spawn when naughtiness threshold is reached (maxing out at day 100). Naughtiness threshold does not decrease over time. Simply recalculated within a range each time a Krampus event happens.

 

More treeguards can spawn (maxing out at day 80) when chopping down a tree. Chance of spawning does not increase over time.

Poison birch spawning does not increase over time. Just a straight chance depending on worldgen setting.

 

Depth worms spawn more frequently, with greater numbers and less warning (Maxing out at day 150).

 

Pretty sure that a new world (after jumping thru the Teleportato) simply gets reset to day 1. The number of days spent in the previous world is discarded.

They have a warning phase? You mean the growl a split second before they jab at you from the darkness, when you don't expect combat and thus don't wear armour?

In a way, escaping from the world using the teleportato could be considered winning. You get XP for how long you survived (similar to if  you died), and you could consider it as winning one game and starting a new game (with a different character, if you so choose) with the added bonus of all the items in your inventory (and any "pre-built" structures).

 

But there's no way to "win" as such. Even when you finish Adventure Mode, you don't win, per se.

 

The reasons for using the teleportato....well, some resources do run out, your world might not have a Pig King, you might want to practise for Adventure Mode (which involves lots of world jumping).....or like so many things in DS....because you can. It's a sandbox.
