Are there any recipes for the Succulent? It looks a lot like Aloe Vera and would be handy in healing or something.

The only I found was was for pottet succulent, which requires 5 succulent and 1 cutstone, also I got the blueprint for it by fishing in the pond

Aww, that picture is adorable.  :)  Speaking of adorability...

newcactus.png

I just saw the new cacti.   Pout.  The old ones were cuter.  Sure, this looks more officially cactus-like, but I'm gonna miss those little round boop! pincushions.  Ever see a bunch of those grow back at once?  It's AMAZING. They all just...re_inflate_ from the ground up with a cartoon sound.  : P

Ah well, at least we still have the adorable round pincushion cacti in regular Don't Starve...  I still haven't seen any of the new succulents yet.  Although I did find the oasis.

I was there before summer too and found nothing but an empty pond and in summer it was full of water and succulents were around it, so i guess they only grow in summer? maybe?
Also when you see the new cacti bloom in summer, you totally see charlies doing, they look very nice a little bit girly i would say

Oh!  Huh.  It never even occurred to me that they'd be two different kinds. My own Dragonfly desert had Her Royal Fireyness SO close to the (narrow) entrance, I couldn't explore it very much.  : P  Also yeah, when I saw the oasis it was a round swirl of sand, that's it.  'Cos it was fall.

So, two different desert types, to go with our two different forest types...? Interesting.

This new update is awesome! Love the new Cactus' new look and the Sandstorm idea, and making summer harder than it already is! Yay! 

 

 

 

Btw I thought the Antlion was gonna be a Enemy to the desert. hehe

1. No heat resistance.

Ouch. That's pretty bad for an item that's used almost exclusively in summer. I wasn't expecting eyebrella levels of heat resistance, but I was at least expecting something.

Well, I guess I'll pass on the oasis base if that's the case. It's pretty far away from anything good with the world I ended up in. No heat resistance on the goggles is just the nail in the coffin for me.

Seems like most of the creatures are asexual hermaphrodites containing parts from both genders.  That would explain many things.

Such as 1 beefalo suddenly turns into 10+ beefalo after spring. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  • The AntLion's wrath is really cheap and the effect so trivial. Here's an idea, when the AntLion is not in a good mood he trigger the sands storm, and when he's happy the sky is blue.

Agree. When I looked at Antlion and compare to Volcanic Altar and Pig King, I noticed that the Antlion doesn't have any turf + obelisks next to him like the latters.

At least in SW, there is a "salty" meter for the volcano.

Ok. Stop.

This is not some PC master race/console war thing going on here. Do you know why the PC version gets more attention? It's because pushing out updates are FREE. Last I knew Microsoft and Sony actually charge developers for each patch, so if you have a game that's in constant development the PC is usually the better choice of platform. Because of the fee it's usually better to push out a lot of stuff at once on console instead of adding little chunks at a time.

Once ANR is out of beta I'm sure they'll be giving the console version the much needed love that it deserves. Right now Klei has a lot on their plate with Oxygen Not Included, Hot Lava and the ANR beta for DST. Just give 'em a bit more time. Klei is an indie development studio after all.

Hence why 99% of games are far more expensive on console. We pay a lot more for a game than PC players. Take ark survival for example in my countries currancy (ZAR) its R105 on PC and R800 on PS4. 

If you expand a game to another platform you better be prepared for all its benefits and consequences. Dont give me your PC master race BS. I know PC is far superior to console but I dont like it when one platform gets neglected in favor of another. If you charge a platform full price then you better deliver at full value simple as that.

also dont give me this bs about sony and microsoft that make it harder for devs to patch games being the reason console is neglected. There are many games that run a lot better and have way more console focus than PC. Despite what you say. Look at games like call of duty specifically call of duty ghosts. Ghosts ran pathetically on even the most high end PC's because it was so badly ported and had such little focus as opposed to the console versions. And many other console games that were made for console then ported to PC. Fact is the platfrom is irrelevant its up to the devs to put the effort in to porting the game to the other platforms.

Hee!  It's a skin!  A bumble spear.  I consider it my luckiest drop ever, as it's a freaking ELEGANT.  :D

(That said, I didn't actually intend to make this picture a "LOOK AT MY COOL THING"--that just happened to be what I was carrying at the time.  Because I just barely finished fighting hounds.  : P)

Maybe i'm the only one but this update to me looks kinda meh...

I don't know... The pond gives you only trinkets and blueprint for the goggles; the goggles only use is to travel to the antlion that after all is just a pig king that gives you materials to craft the teleportator and needs to be calmed down...

Succulents are kinda useless, and boulders in the caves are just a way to extend the antlion rage underground, with the mechanic of carrying them useless too...

And about the emotes i don't see anything special, they are funny but they are really a minor thing...

I'm not saying that this is a bad update, I like the Teleportator for example, but i expected more from Against the grain: new mobs, a new boss, new weapons and items, basically i wanted some new rewards for the player, and beside the teleportator there isn't much left...

I don't know at Klei actually thought it would be a good idea to base an entire update around fishing and RNG.

In fact it's not a smaller update than nearly all the ANR updates. They never were presented as big update, each update is "small". This is what allow a good testing (because it's a beta).

If the size of the update are a source of disappointment,you should really consider stop playing beta branch and wait for the ANR update reaching the main branch, they are bigger and more... a whole. Because now we have thing without knowing if it's just a piece of something bigger that will give a better immersion.

 

I know i stopped playing some beta in the past because small amount of new things time to time was too little for me and I was exhausting the fun of each update too quickly, sometime waiting more between updates is a better way to enjoy the new content.
