  1. Past hour
  2. Do you mean like geographic placement for consoles? Yes please!
  3. Rocket exhaust clarification

    Another option is to have a compressed atmosphere for your rockets already in place so the heat that is generated is quickly dissipated by the surrounding gasses. You will have to have quite a few turbines to get rid of all that heat however.
  4. I tried it and followed that guide. It still doesn't work. I guess it just isn't possible to do it.
  5. With a .1 gram drip it essentially is, once you fill the feeding pipe.
  6. Yeah that's the point. You want cheap tempshifts in the rocket bay to allow for that heat push to spread into a lot of material, and prevent it from superheating the already toasty steam emissions. (What you make the tempshifts out of depends on the emission amount, which I don't know - but if igneous isn't safe, obsidian certainly is, even though I'd strongly prefer the former for the 5x heat cap.) You can then make all wires and stuff out of steel and still be safe by a very wide margin. My asteroid only had 8 tons of wolframite on it, so tungsten for this purpose would be a huge luxury, but fortunately also unnecessary.
  7. mathmanican pretty much wrote the entire hydro mechanics section in the uni. The pump isn't 0 power, but you can get 1000x10g pumps for 240W or .24W/gas tile. There are many applications for this, especially in jump starting waterfalls and reclaiming gasses from rocket exhausts and comets.
  8. If you don't like it, play a different game? I'm not sure what to tell you, it's pretty entitled to expect the developers to upend the entire basic philosophy under which the game was designed to cater to your taste. I'd say Don't Starve's 50k positive reviews on Steam speak for themselves in terms of whether or not it's a good idea.
  9. I found out recently that using catapults against the Fuelweaver makes the fight disappointingly easy (especially with the thurible).
  10. I'm sorry, it must have been so self-evident to me how bad of an idea that was that I never framed it as anything else but you not understanding what I was saying. I suppose I can't agree with you on this at all.
  11. That's how the game is meant to function. I know what you're saying, I'm telling you that's the point and always has been the point. If you go on the wiki and spoil yourself on how all of the mechanics work, the only thing you can blame for your lack of enjoyment is you for purposefully ruining it for yourself. New players are supposed to struggle. The game is about learning how to survive in an uncompromising wilderness through trial and error.
  12. Getting Thermium?

    "3. Avoid using pipes whenever possible. Use liquid bridges wherever you can, and build everything as close together as possible." Or just place that whole thing in a vacuum
  13. I remember thinking years ago (before DST) that Minecraft would benefit from ripping off of Don't Starve and putting a recipe guide of some sort in-game, because it would ease the somewhat ridiculously steep learning curve of a new player who hasn't spent hours memorizing the wiki/keeping up with patch notes. ...then they did, and it turned out to be a great benefit to the game; the ratio of people that seem to know what they're doing in multiplayer went up drastically. Here we are years later, and I'm wishing that DST would rip off of Minecraft and add achievements that guide the player through the basics of the game, so content wouldn't have to cater so much to the assumption that the main playerbase is incapable of using a fork without offing themselves. God this is weird.
  14. Retrofitting world

    We've reproduced the issue using Mano's old save file (thanks!). The team has also been able to identify the problem and is looking for a solution.
  15. Thanks for the clarifications. @biopon I don't see how I am wasting tungsten, I have (unfortunately) wires & logic gates everywhere on the rocket path, it's not only at the bottom. I guess I could dry wall everything and cool everything but... you know, it's not the case and for now, given what you all said (2.9k °C max), I reckon tungsten is a good choice if I want to have those wires alive. And I sort of do...
  16. Character Help

    No this is the code set for spawning ice local icee = SpawnPrefab("ice").Transform:SetPosition(inst.Transform:GetWorldPosition()) inst:WatchWorldState("isday", icee)
  17. This is an oldish thread and I only found it very recently but I have to agree with @flapee's sentiment: are you kidding me? A 0-power, compact replacement to a door pump that also happens to be faster? This is an absolutely huge discovery. Granted it's gas-only and has a limited (but still wide) temperature band, but I've used it to much success in the following scenarios: - Natgas geyser harvesting into storage - Pumping out o2 from a pwater->clay farm, and keeping it working at max efficiency - Harvesting hot steam vent (500C) emissions to be processed by the optimal number of turbines at 100% uptime - Vacuuming out rooms for big magma-related projects, and now actually vacuuming out the entire asteroid because why the hell not. I love that this is actually safe versus backflow even if your drip stops, unlike the EZ-Bead pump. The 1000kg limit is not that hard to work with. At least door pumps still have a use and you promote diversity in solutions.
  18. Yeah I had a brain fart there. I'm american so the metric system isn't natural for me also I'm still a newb to the game. But if I'm not mistaken can't mechanized airlocks be used push large amounts of water up? Sure it would take longer but it should be able to move a massive amount of water at once. I'm still learning the technical side of ONI but I'm pretty sure that would work.

    Keep the rare stuff hidden. All of my world is open for people to explore, but they'll NEVER find my secret bases with the rarest of all my loot. About 1/5 DST players are just trying to troll open servers so keep that in mind when world building.
  20. Okay I might not have explained myself that well. Here's what I meant. -In Don't Starve Together, the fun comes from the "ah yes I figured out how to play I'm 1 step closer to surviving" moments that the game has some can skip all this if you read the wiki. The game relies on you not knowing how to play for it to be fun. That's kind of bizarre isn't it? isn't chess more fun when you know how to actually play? Often a game is more engaging when the participants understand what they even have to do. That's the issue with DST. Once you learn how to play it's often not challenging nor engaging anymore. The game lacking a tutorial is, ironically, the only reason this is possible.
  21. I'm not by any means an artist so I have nothing to contribute, but I'm a devote lurker here and it always amazes me how talented this community is, most artworks seem like fit for an HD poster to hang, or a Tshirt. You people rock, keep it up!
  22. Maxwell Memes: The Sequel

    I can't believe this, after everything I've done for them. I bet they didn't even credit me. Oh wait they posted the video. you absolute moron, how could you mistake a video for a photograph. It was also under a hidden tab which most people will just scroll over.
