  1. Least favourite season?

    Everything is archived, and when you post to a thread that's older than a couple of weeks everyone moans about it. So I start a new thread. There isn't a whole lot of new material to go over when I'm just asking which season people like the least, though. What new input could be added regarding said question? It's pretty straight forward. Was only curious. There seems to be no winning in these forums. Either it's archived, people get butthurt, or nobody replies because it was already gone over in a thread that can no longer be added to lol
  2. Least favourite season?

    It would be cool if more people communicated here on these (SW/RoG) forums, too. Most people seem to just read the posts and never reply/contribute. You mostly see posts that have been "seen" like 50+ times with less than a handful of replies here.
  3. Hamlet (Consoles)

    I was just wondering if there's any info at all about a Hamlet release for consoles? I play PS4 and remember both RoG & SW taking about a year after the PC release to come out. I've Googled it plenty of times and tried to find any info about a Hamlet release and have mostly come up short. I assume it'll be released for consoles, as the others were. I'm obviously not positive though. Does anybody actually know, or have any info on Hamlet for PS4/XBone?

    Super active community here, eh? lol
  5. Basing in the Volcano

    As someone who's made a pretty decent sized base in the volcano before, I believe I have a couple things to add to the discussion. Basing in the volcano has several upsides, but just as many downsides as well. So it's really a matter of personal preference when it comes down to it. The main positives I've noticed include: • Not having to travel to reach the volcano to use the Obsidian Workbench or Pillar of Snackrifice. (obviously lol) • The Pillar of Snackrifice is easily managed with a birdcage. Kill dragoons > convert monster meat into eggs > Snackrifice eggs to delay eruptions. • Lots of ashy/volcanic turf to pillage for your bases elsewhere. (Required for Coffee + Elephant Cactus plants to be planted) • Tons of Obsidian to make Obsidian Firepits (definitely worth the 8 obsidian). Tons of charcoal as well due to the charcoal boulders. Much less time consuming than burning trees or waiting for dragoon eggs to provide! -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- As for the negatives I've noticed, some of the bigger ones include: • If you plan to world hop through the Teleportato, your volcano base will be reset. Teleporting in RoG provides a new RoG world (obviously), but also resets the volcano in your linked world. Same applies for the other way around; Teleporting in SW provides a new SW world, but resets the Ruins in the linked RoG world. So if you've got a good base going and plan to world hop, you'll ALWAYS lose your Ruins and/or Volcano set-ups, no matter which way you decide to Teleport. • Once you've pillaged the volcano for EVERY resource you can manage, there isn't a whole lot left going on there. You'll have to leave to gather pretty much every other resource in the game. • Eruptions are easily mitigated by rushing to the opposite side of the caldera (as there isn't much there for the dragoon eggs to destroy), BUT it will cause 100% instant overheating for the duration of the day. I find "chilling amulets" to be the best option in this case, as the Tropical Fans aren't very effective in this situation. (Have not tried a dumbrella in this instance tbh, so I cannot confirm or deny it's effectiveness during eruptions inside the volcano). -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Another thing to keep in mind is that Crocodogs + Giants do not appear inside the volcano. Some may consider this a positive while others may see it as a negative. Personally I'm the latter, as it's just another resource you need to leave the volcano to capitalize on. Same goes for Lureplants and birds. They do not spawn inside the volcano, no matter the season. The volcano bases look cool to have and it's an interesting challenge for sure, but in the long run it becomes more time consuming to gather and collect even the most basic of necessities to keep everything running smoothly. These are just my observations, take what you will of them. Be sure to post some of your own observations/pics if you decide to set up base inside the volcano?
  6. Least favourite season?

    I've been wondering what the general consensus is about the seasons. There was another post, but it's archived now, so I was curious if anything has changed since the updates for the consoles came out last year. I can't stand Monsoon season, even with adequate preparation. The constant mosquitos that spawn everywhere are excruciatingly aggravating. Although overheating is the most annoying feature in the game, at least it doesn't cause fires like in RoG. Plus, the dragoon eggs can be avoided easily enough during summer IMO, but the mosquitos are everywhere all the time, it seems. Thoughts?
  7. who holds the record?

    I'm cool with complete strangers on an internet forum being annoyed. What's also annoying is people who are annoyed by something as simple as seeing that an old post on an internet forum was replied to. That's the crazy thing about the internet, the stuff that gets posted stays forever. If people/Klei don't want people to see/comment on them, they should delete the threads once they reach a certain age. That way no feelings are hurt and nobody dies when a thread gets resurrected lol I'll admit, I was having a rough day and resurrected the thread out of spite, so that probably wasn't cool lol. Had I done so with something to actually contribute and carry on the convo for other people to contribute to as well, like "The Sober Scot" did that's cool IMO. Other people continued to post after Sober revived it, so it seemed to stay relevant. Then you get someone like "DaverGamer" who was seriously affected by the fact an old convo came back up for the community to continue talking about (which they did). Not only did he complain (and then contribute, like he wasn't just saying it was an issue...), he had the nerve to tell him to watch the date next time (which basically means "don't let it happen again"). He coulda just let everyone carry on with their convo, it he had to act like seeing a thread pop up in the boards is cause for concern, or like literally ****** up his day. It's just ridiculous. If people are sensitive and thin-skinned enough to literally get annoyed or irritated because an old thread was resurrected, they don't seem ready to handle or be on the internet itself. Was just trying to stick up for homeboy. You saw a 6 year old thread come back to life, it couldn't possibly have ruptured your eyeballs because you commented. I doubt commenting on this old thread didn't give you cancer or leprosy either. You managed just fine and I appreciate that. It's too bad some people have to act like they're the internet police lol.
  8. 700+ Days Shipwrecked Megabase Showcase

    You didn't give any constructive criticism, though. Simply mentioned that thier map with Hamlet content didn't belong on the Hamlet page.
  9. Hamlet PS4?

    You think this will ever get released for PS4? It took over a year for Shipwrecked to come out on PS4 afrer the PC release, so I'm not sure. It would make more sense to release the versions simultaneously, like every other company does for every other game.
  10. who holds the record?

    Looked at the date and resurrected a 6 year old thread. Just because it's an issue people feel the need to complain about for some reason. "Make sure to look at the date before posting"...okay dad. Lol
  11. Yeah...I realized that a couple minutes after I had posted lol.
  12. Hopefully this game/DLC comes out sometime soon. I've been stoked to play it since September -.- Although, they said it'll have a PC release before PS4. It's awesome that it's coming to PS4 but it kind of makes me sad that us console gamers will have to wait even longer . Don't Starve has definitively been one of my favourite go-to games since I first tried it years ago. I hope they never stop working on it lol. Also, quick question if anybody knows or has heard anything; Will the Shipwrecked Content Update come out for consoles at the same time as PC, or is that going to be post-PC release as well? You're upset that Klei is going to release an entirely optional DLC (which consists of no gameplay or any "missed" content) in order to fund and fuel FREE content in the future? I could see being upset if they were charging money for simple content updates. But to "never again buy or touch anything Klei makes" because some people may want to purchase skin packs to support the company sounds a tad dramatic. Companies charging money for the products & service they provide has been the norm since the dawn of companies, products and services in general though.
