  1. I'm looking for reasonable advice on how to survive the Aporkalypse, To be clear, I'm looking for advice on how to survive. I know how the calendar works, but I'm more interested in trying to LIVE after the world ends and descends into darkness/piglessness, even if its not sustainable forever (I ultimately want to challenge myself by trying to survive to a certain date and then beating that the next time I play with a different strategy) I have 60 days to prepare, and I just don't know what to prioritize to survive those endless bat attacks. I know I can just run from the Herald, but the constant bats are an issue as its not like I can use tooth traps or have enough bee's to make bee mines. So far the closest I could think of is maybe a tier 3 carnivorous plant forest, where I leave all sorts of meat out in a field and lure them out there to evolve into a kind of natural defense against bats if I run in and out of it. Any tips, advice, or anything would be appreciated. If you've done this yourself and find that its simply "impossible" to survive without resetting the clock, please let me know as well. I would prefer advice that is about fortifications, attacking, and defense. I'm aware I could just get the overcharged robot dude, a walking cane, and run like the wind, but I'd prefer something more brutal. HAPPY NEW YEARS!!! These are the things that have been suggested so far to me: - The new character Warbucks gets sanity from the amount of Oinks he gets. This could be used to counter issues with sanity in never ending darkness. - Flytraps (or whatever they are called) make good stationary defenses once they level up. - Webber has a lot of disadvantages, but since he can eat Monster Meat without any negative effects, he could be useful for getting food once all there is left is Monster Meat (not to mention a nice spider haven might help survive some bats, but maybe not) - Multiple bases and defensive areas. If the Herald wrecks something, you can just move to another area you have set up. One base would be a poor choice.
  2. Tactics for defeating the Aporkalypse

    After playing, its very obvious I'll need a lot of prep to survive even a little bit. I'm lost in this game, I had the original DS down to a point where it was boring to keep going. I really don't think that will happen with this game, even with a really good strat I'm pretty sure its not sustainable to survive the Aporkalyse for any long length of time. All good points. Esp the pig guards, if they keep their weapon out, that would be real helpful, but pigs seem to really dislike darkness so I wouldn't be surprised if they use torches.
  3. Could the pigs become vampires?

    Or... they ate the piggies and you're finding bits of skin left over that was stuck in their teeth. HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!!!
  4. References in Hamlet

    Anyone know the movie Ender's Game? Well the sequel takes place on an alien world with Ender all grown up. The world is inhabited by pig people that resemble this game A LOT. Not a reference per say.. I keep looking for one of the pigs to scream "FATHER" when cutting down a tree (turns out the pigs and trees are linked, they turn into trees when they die and live on a 2nd lifecycle)
  5. QOL update report

    That's not how the internet works
  6. Well THAT Seems Safe...

    This reminds me of that Simpson's episode "Bart the Mother". The town gets overrun with Bolivian tree lizards: Skinner: Well, I was wrong; the lizards are a godsend. Lisa: But isn't that a bit short-sighted? What happens when we're overrun by lizards? Skinner: No problem. We simply release wave after wave of Chinese needle snakes. They'll wipe out the lizards. Lisa: But aren't the snakes even worse? Skinner: Yes, but we're prepared for that. We've lined up a fabulous type of gorilla that thrives on snake meat. Lisa: But then we're stuck with gorillas! Skinner: No, that's the beautiful part. When wintertime rolls around, the gorillas simply freeze to death
  7. QOL update report

    I told that joke to a friends wife when she answered the phone and said she was sick.. she actually started to pour herself a cup of sugar water before my friend noticed who she was talking to, took the phone away, and yelled at me for taking advantage of his wifes trusting nature
  8. QOL update report

    My doctor says to drink 3 cups of warm sugar water.. cures all illnesses. You'll know its working if you experience the following symptoms: 1) Blurred vision 2) Constant thirst and hunger
  9. [Game Update] - 283915

    I almost had a aneurysm trying to find out when some of my farm tiles were breaking when I put in pipes, and why others weren't. You guys rock!! My brain thanks you
  10. [Game Update] - 283915

    I was LITERALLY tonight going to finish my water layout to use this for cleaning the water. You have crushed my heart and soul. I forgive you though, because you made this game and this game is awesome. You should just allow us to add liquid Chlorine to water like in real life pools. Then have the dupes all red eyed and miserable from the effects. Realism!!!
  11. I know there is a bug where Dreckos ignore certain plants when they shouldn't and end up starving in a stable. I have the solution to fix it temporary, and I wasn't sure where to put it. Hope this is the right SubForum I found out it is caused by the plants hitting a "halted" status at some point, and the Dreckos won't eat them anymore unless you dig that plant up and replant it. I've had other people confirm this fixes it as well. Just thought you should know in case you didn't already. Cheers
  12. I love you! Thanks for explaining it Also.. I feel cheated cause I never got to the point of having to boil Petroleum. You guys are so much better than I am at this game
  13. I'm totally lost. I read the patch notes and most of the replies here. What on earth is sour gas and why has this whole NG thing been nerfed? I read through the notes twice, but I can't find any explanation. I'd appreciate any help understanding this... please write your answers as if the person reading it barely passed grade 9 Science 101.
  14. Challenges are the spice of life!!! Also.. searching "what does SHC stand for?" lead me to Spontaneous Human Combustion. Apparently google search doesnt prioritize this game LOL
  15. Fossils are naturally slimy. You think they'd be super dry.. but nope. Slimy from all the deadness
  16. Me too.. we should start a club. The ONI non-smarty pants club for girls (and boys)
  17. Ohhh,, ok.. I get how they are the same now, but how would that nerf the water sieve? Have they actually changed the fixed temp or do you just mean that there is less reason to keep PW for any reason? (mind as well convert it unless you need some for plants)
  18. Awesome... now does anyone know what this means? "Water and Polluted Water now have the same SHC so that the water purifier won't magically cause a loss of energy" Does this mean that there is no fixed temp output on the water sieve anymore? I assume the purifier is the sieve.
  19. It would be amazing if this turned out to eventually be some kind of online or multiplayer setup.. like trading resources with buddies online somehow using our fleets. But I don't want to get my hopes up.. also.. I have no friends who play this. They call me NERD and play Wow or whatever.
  20. AHHHHH!!!!!! Seriously, I'm having a heart attack!! Way better than I ever thought!!!!!! I don't remember anyone suggesting something like this, its totally out of left field. I really thought you guys might just make a "reset planet" endgame like with Don't Starve. This is sooooooo much better. At the very most I thought space flight would be an endgame to "escape the planet".. not something to renew the map of resources needed and unique things you can't get elsewhere. You guys are amazing!! Also: Water and Polluted Water now have the same SHC so that the water purifier won't magically cause a loss of energy What on earth is an SHC? I don't speak Science!!! Plants will now sleep at night. You trolling us? lol Someone please post a pic of the Gassy Moo and the new plant... I can't find anything and I don't want to die before I get home. Please and thank you.
  21. Dreckos won't eat

    Top left Drecko stable, the one with only one mealwood in it. You'll see he can't eat that plant. He'll just constantly ignore it. It was "halted" before I put the WW there, which causes it to bug even when it regains growing again. If you dig it up and replant it, he'll start eating the new plant. For Bug 2.sav
  22. Dreckos won't eat

    A saved file with the bug active? Or a save file after I used the fix to correct it? Let me know and I'll attach what I can
  23. I'm lost. I see all the new buildings but scheduling says "NOT IMPLEMENTED" and everyone just goes to the bathroom and eats whenever. They don't even take a break. Its like the same. Anyone else? Did I miss something about them leaving this out or am I bugged?
  24. [Game Update] - 279007

    Added some new "higher tier" room types. Can anyone explain this?
