  1. Make sure to kill that fuelweaver first try out of pure spite!! Good luck!!
  2. I guess I might aswell use status updates, I doubt anyone will ever look at these anyway.

    I'm having an alright day, nothing that important happened so I'm just browsing the forums and seeing how everything is like.

  3. Edit: Oops, didn't realize there was a second page for this thread and this was already poined out. My bad!
  4. I do wish there was a way to make it easier to find out how to get the opal gem. I can see someone connecting the dots on getting the shadow pieces boss, but not for the opal gem. Though at the same time, without previous knowledge I also don't think someone could figure out how to make the ancient fuelweaver show up so who knows, man.
  5. I tend to switch between all the skins, including playing as the default Wendy! So personally, I don't find it weird.
  6. I meaaan... Robin's yellow and red skin kinda looks like wendy if you take off your glasses?
  7. I've been playing as Wendy ever since I bought the game back in 2017.
  8. The problem isn't that it would be inconvenient, the problem is that in a majority of games where Thirst is, at least from the ones I've played, they're just hunger 2: electric boogaloo and don't make any major gameplay changes. I'm all for new challenges but giving me a second hunger meter ain't doing it :[ If it's anything like @SinacoTheBest described it, I'd be all for it, but ya can't really blame people when they're just given the question "Would you be happy if they added thirst?" with no other context and they dislike it and instead expect 'em to be all over the idea. Though I don't know, maybe that's just me. Shrug
  9. Well, Maxwell does mention that time works extremely weirdly in the constant- so the days actually being 8 minutes long isn't impossible. I don't feel like fact-checking the math but the constant being ~4000 years old (as of maxwell showing up, as it's confirmed that the constant existed BEFORE maxwell) is relatively plausible. Nice post, OP!
  10. I don't know about all of them, but I do recall most of Wendy's by memory. Idk if they're right so tell me how well I did, as I won't be looking them up! spoiler tagging in case someone else wants to try Wendy. (P.S i didn't read the rest of the thread as to not spoil myself as i wanna be genuine) oh dear, i ended up struggling more than I expected with some of these... here goes nothing
  11. As much as I'd love for there to be a surprise for us, I wanna be fair to Klei and not expect a bamboozle big update. As long as this QoL is meaningful to gameplay, I'm happy with it. These are tough times and I don't think it's fully fair to expect too much from everyone, as much as I'd love to get a big update in august.
  12. The Abigail mod only made it so abigail followed you if she got too far away. It didn't do even a third of what the rework did. It isn't wrong to tell you "Hey, uh, the developers don't have the responsibility or the job to make it so that the old stuff works with the new stuff." Nintendo Switch can't run Nintendo 3ds games. And I can't look at them and say "BUT I WANT TO PLAY POKÉMON SUN AND MOON!!!", because a new console is there for new things. Everyone who's gonna play the mod has purchased DST. they aren't play it for free. Not only that, the mods are FAR from the experience of actual shipwrecked. If you played the mods, you'd know a lot of them are glitchy, and still heavy works in progress. Because they're fan-made. The people working on them are non-profit. Dude, do you seriously have no respect for the ammount of work people put into those? You claim to be a 20 year old man, so you surely understand how much work and dedication goes into making that stuff, and you're upset because you don't have access to it due to the console you have? Klei doesn't owe you mod content, dude. The only reason WHY it's allowed is because Klei, has, already, stated, IT WON'T HAPPEN. They allow people to make mods for it on DST, because THEY won't do it. BECAUSE THEY DON'T WANT A SPLIT FANBASE. no matter in what way you say it, there is very little profit to be made from porting the DLCs over to DST, and there's already fanprojects which have years and years of work put into them, and Klei is a developer that can respect the years of work that THEY THEMSELVES approved of. The abigail mod was a patch up for the big wendy problem with abigail's AI. it was a thing that HAD to be fixed. It's not something like adding shipwrecked DLC that does NOT need to be done, and that you yourself said you can already access with the power of singleplayer. Of course it would be fun to play hamlet/shipwrecked with friends, but it's too much work, work which could be better spent making ACTUAL NEW CONTENT for the game. Please. Do you not have empathy for the mod developers? Do you not care for the fact that doing something like this would slow progress of new features even further? Ain't replyin further on THIS thread because this is hella off-topic. Directly message me on the forums if you really want to make an argument for yourself or make a thread for it. My sincere apologies to everyone else in this thread who had to read this. Mike, I value your presence a lot, but come on. You can't expect Klei to invalidate years of voluntary work because you want them to bring dlcs to DST. no one is taking away your rights to play it. You own it. And you CAN play it. It's more trouble than it's worth. Now please, if you must reply, do it in DMs. this thread has gone off-topic enough.
  13. Look... Honey, i'm tired of being the echo that returns the sound of your broken record, but haven't we already talked about this...? > Porting DLCs would undermine the work of all the people who made said free mods (WITH KLEI'S PERMISSION) > "They still have to purchase the addons!" yeah, and they have to buy the game too. You can't buy the DLC without the addons afaik, correct me if i'm wrong here. > This literally makes the entire existance of classic DS pointless. The whole point of the dlcs was to make it so classic DS has something unique so people still come back to it even if DST exists. > Klei already stated this won't happen Look, I try my hardest to be patient with you, because I appreciate how active you are in these forums, but we've gone over this.. do the things I say just go in one ear and out the other? - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - As for the actual topic of the thread, I want to stay optimistic and say that we're still gonna have to wait quite a bit until RoT is done. The title of the update chain is very... daring, for lack of better terms. "THEM" are really important, as far as the Don't Starve lore goes. So i want to believe something big is probably coming. Perhaps the long awaited adventure mode? Probably not, but one can dream. I have no doubts that we'll be able to interact with the Throne at some point, just like we did in classic don't starve. I want to believe this will be even bigger than the previous update chain, A New Reign, and that when it's all said and done this will be content that won't be just "Oh, uh, it's there, I guess." and instead will be something substantial that everyone will be excited to do. I... Agree that as of right now, the updates have been quite small and underwhelming, with the exception of SsSs which is one of the first major "setting up" updates, other than the obvious first update. I'm willing to chalk this up to the fact that there's a pandemic going on outside and that has hurt development time. It's not impossible. And while I think it's okay for the community to be disappointed with the update speeds and the sometimes lacking content, I don't entirely think saying that "With each successive update to ocean content I'm less and less convinced they will eventually all come together to provide something more than the sum of its parts." As, optimistically considering the negative impacts of the pandemic, it's still too early to say that. I wasn't around during a new reign to know how long the update chain was and how substantial each update has, but as of right now, I enjoy all of the ANR content that was added and none of it feels like it's wasting space, and I actively try to do a lot of it (i.e shadow pieces) and I want to believe that it'll be the same for The Return of Them, and if the chain has more than 10 total updates, over the span of like.. two years? I'm personally okay with that. We also have to consider that they're working on brand-new characters *AND* character refreshes at the same time as the RoT content. At least that's what I think. I try to be optimistic about these updates and cut Klei some slack because they have been one of the better developers out there, and they've earned my trust in their competence, and I'd be willing to bet that they've planned ahead, and the pandemic simply slowed them down.
  14. "Nature" reminds me of the verdant sets. Wurt is getting a roseate skin, too. Interesting.
  15. You guys are fast, holy manure. Good job!
