I was wondering how giants worked

Hi, sometimes I encounter giants, sometimes I don't. In RoG, a year is 72 days, so it's kind of a big deal when I miss a giant. Not that I like them but their stuff are pretty cool, so I've got a few questions.

 

First: Do giants ALAYWS spawn? i didn't encounter the dragonfly this summer, but did it spawn somewhere and I just didn't get to see it? Or is the spawn random?

 

Second: Can I see giants on the minimap? If they do spawn far away from my base, Can I spot them by looking on the minimap? (i'm playing with "more minimap icons" mod)

 

And if spawns are random, can I increase my chance by settings respectives giants settings on "more" or "lots"?

 

The only new giant I encountered so far is the Goose/Moose, and it's not a big deal at all.

Yes, in RoG. Giants will always spawn. In Winter and Autumn. Deerclops and Bearger will hunt you down. In Spring, if you see a giant Egg, then you use a hammer to destroy it(you will take damage) the Moose will spawn right away without waiting for her children to hatch. In summer, you'll to find the Dragonfly somewhere in the desert.

Correction, all giants in base game are raid bosses.

 

As for Mgoose egg, the Goose/Moose periodically lays those while fighting you.

A giant spawn is totally random when set to normal, besides the Moose. The Moose will always spawn in early spring if you are near enough player build structures. A giant won't spawn in the first season. More means you will always get a giant, often times two in a season. Lots means giants can spawn out of season and they spawn so much that your entire world will be littered with their remains no matter what you do to try and clean up.

 

Not sure why Derpime said they always spawn, I believe that is misinformation.
