  1. IMO, normally I'd just be "Eh, whatever" and move on. But due to how Klei initially advertised this event, it feels just... really lackluster. First, the original name was summer solstice. I have no idea what this event has to do with either of those things. Sure a couple of the items have summer utility, and apparently carnivals are a thing that happen on Summer Solstices. But between all the painted eggs and bird themeology, this honestly feels more like a spring event than a summer event. Like, they could have released this update a month ago and called it something like "Eggcelent Spring Bonanza" And nobody would have bat an eye. One would expect a summer event to do with the sun, the desert. Heck, an ocean-themed event would have been great for the summer solstice, sense aquatic activities are generally done during the blazing heat of summer. Second, When the event was first announced as the Summer Solstice. The Winter event, Winter's feast, got name dropped. Thus causing a lot of people to assume that the new event would be similar to Winter's feast. Now, that's not an entirely fair comparison, obviously. Winter's feast has had about 5 years of content added. And honestly, given the more recent additions, Midsummer Cawnival is about par for the course. However, When Winter's feast was first added, the game received the Addition of Klaus. A boss who stuck around after the event ended, and who many consider the best raid boss in the game. So the event was expected to be comparable to Winter's feast for summer, which meant the possibility for new general summer content. And realistically... Yeah. Summer desperately needs new content. Basically every thread about the seasons agrees that it's the worst season. And not just because it's the harshest. Anyways, there's probably more that I'm forgetting, but that should be the main thing.
  2. Moonglass fire pit that acts like the obsidian firepit from Shipwrecked, but is cold.
  3. I named mine "Alan Dracula" Anyone who gets it gets a gold star.
  4. Eh. Uncomp doesn't generally change characters that much. The only ones who could be considered "B-side" (atleast as I understand it) Are Willow, who got a minor re-work to be more fire based. And Wolfgang, who got a re-work to be less combat-oriented and get more strength-based utility. Frankly, I'd rather that second one just be his re-work in general. But Willow's re-work I could see as a "B-side" upgrade.
  5. Another issue is that Crops tend to be really good on their lonesome. Sure, some of them are pretty sub-par or average on their own, such as Garlic, onion, and peppers. But half of the crops crops are really good to eat on their own. Toma roots and pomegranate restore 20 HP, which is really good if you consider that that's for a single ingredient in a crock pot. Corn and Asparagus are as filling as meat. Corn straight off the stalk and Asparagus once you cook it. Potatoes and Eggplants are as filling as meat, and also restore 20 HP. Wolfgang's favorite food is also roast potatoes, making them restore 40 hunger. Pumpkins restore a whopping 37.5 hunger and 8 HP. Again, this is for a single slot in the crock pot. So yeah, basically the only crops that you probably arn't better off eating raw are Carrots, Watermelons, Dragon fruit, onions, chili peppers, Durians, and garlic. And of those crops, I'd say only Dragonfruit has any real use in a crock pot thanks to Dragon Pie. Not counting Warly, obviously. Durians and Carrots flat out don't have any unique recipes. Peppers are only used for pepper poppers, Garlic is only used in creamy potato puree, and onions are only used in Veggie burgers and Salsa Fresca, the latter of which is just a more spesific version of Veggie stingers, which also use tomatoes. So I conqure, vegan croc pot dishes are in massive need of an overhaul.
  6. Spend hours going through the ruins, doing the moonstone event, raiding the archives, finding the lunar island, befriending Pearl, fighting a stupidly hard boss with bad rewards, bringing three seperate heavy objects to the lunar island, activating a world-spanning event, performing a fetch quest 3 seperate times, and fighting a raid boss just so you can obtain a glorified mining helmet. Yeah, I'mma put that in E tier.
  7. Sweet Mary mother of god. That chest skin is Amazing.
  8. So is this based on anything? or did you just come up with an OC and say that "hey, this guy I made would be cool in the game"?
  9. If you're trying to mass-produce for a whole year. Then you're plan might work? Your biggest hurdle will be spoilage, but if you can get 16 farm plots filled up and get all of them giant. Then yeah, you'll probably have enough food for a year after only 1-2 harvests.
  10. too much. Comically to much. In vanilla DST, All Warly's diet demands is that you restore 180 food every 2 days. Notice anything about that number? That's right, Warly's stomach can hold 250 food. This means that all you need to stay fed is either 3 75 hunger foods, or 1 105 hunger food and 1 75 hunger food. Meaty stew+bacon and eggs/honey ham is more than enough to keep Warly fed at all times. As such, I recommend using your farms to focus on Spices, healing and Sanity rather than food. >Tomatoes and Peppers/Dragonfruit combo at a 2/1 ratio. Tomatoes are useful for veggie stingers and salsa fresca; both of which restore 33 san. Peppers are obviously useful for chilli powder, and Dragon pie is Dragon pie. >Onions are also used for Salsa. But they're also used for moqueca, which I suspect to be one of the strongest dishes outside of Mandrake soup; restoring large amount of hunger, sanity, *and* health. > I also reccomend setting up a barnacle farm. 1 sea weed can produce 3 barnacles at a time, and you only need 1 barnacle for Moqueca.
  11. Use your hunger meter as a timer for your food countdown. Warly has a max hunger of 250. He also has a 20% increased hunger drain, thus bringing him to 90 hunger/day. So, if you bring yourself to max hunger, you can wait until you loose 180 hunger (70 points) and then bring yourself back up to full. And so, you won't have to eat again until loosing 180 more hunger.
  12. I'd say the recipes you mentioned are in a... weird spot. They're not quite as broken after Reap what you Sow, but they're still pretty broken. The thing with Meatballs and Pierogi is that they're not nessesarily the most efficent foods, but they're insanely easy to cook. Meatballs for example, if made with 3 cooked berries and 1 monster meat, than the raw ingredients would restore about 56 hunger, only 6 less than meatballs. However, those two ingredients are *super* easy to get. That monster meat? just plop a spider den near your base. And those berries are fairly self explanatory. You just need to place a few berry bushes near your house. So, while you're not getting a very large bonus, the two ingredients are so easy to get that it just doesn't matter. You can also use ice for meatballs, which increases the net gain from about 6 to a whopping 43. Anyways, Pierogi is the same deal. Just use a spider den for the meat and egg, and then use something like mushrooms, cactus, or stone fruit for the veggie, and you've got an easy 40 HP. Compare these recipes to, say, Bacon and eggs or Fish sticks. Bacon and Eggs require 2 meat and 2 eggs. Because it needs 2 meat, you need a regular large meat instead of just monster meat. And the two eggs also require feeding meat to a bird. So if you use 3 Monster Meat and 1 large meat, you're spending several times the amount of effort for 81 hunger, which is actually more than the raw ingredients will give you, albeit without the loss of sanity or hunger that eating the ingredients cooked would result in. Likewise, while fish sticks are a great early-game healing option, fishing rods cost an active investment of silk and twigs, along with the time spent waiting for a fish to bite. And even if ocean fishing only takes seeds, then you still need to wait for the fish to bite, and then spend time reeling them in. I'm fully willing to bet I could kill 3-4 spiders in the time it takes to catch 1 fish. and that's not even mentioning the fact that you need to actually find the shoals first. The vegetables are also fairly easy, because again, all you need are mushrooms, cactus, or stone fruit. TL;DR Meatballs and Pierogi may not be the best recipes, but they're so cheap and easy to make that it doesn't really matter. Honey is good, I fully admit. Kelp can be a hassle to set up, as you need to find Lunar inorder to get a good amount of stalks to transplant. You can't get lureplants until spring, and even then you're looking at only 2-3 lureplants a year.
