  1. I think the easiest way to do it would be to have the game tell everyone on the server that someone wants to enter a cave. Then it will take a vote on whether people want to enter the cave. Majority rules or something like that would then dictate whether everyone enters or no-one enters. It's not perfect, but I guess it's one way around it. And yes, using this system the other players would teleport. And same when leaving the cave. I haven't played the caves much myself. I haven't played the game much actually since it was in early access. I have recently just been waiting for co-op mode to come out. Maybe it would be an idea to have people choose whether they are in a cave server, or a "regular" server, and have it stay that way forever? But really, it's not like there is a shortage of things to do on the surface anyway, so I don't see it being a huge problem. Reign of giants I can see people being more interested in having. Which I understand would be much easier to implement into DST
  2. How about some way to make it so friendly fire is on, but friends can get through tooth traps and bee traps and stuff like that without being hurt/killed? I like games where I can have friendly fire in co-op, so we have to be careful of hurting each other when fighting mobs or whatever, but I don't want to kill my friends just because I put down some traps to defend our base camp. Some way of joining a group would do that I guess. Maybe have it so you can create like a "tribe" or something. You name it, and have a flag or logo (chosen from a few different in-game designs, maybe even have them craftable?), plant the flag near your base. To join your tribe, someone has to be allowed to touch the flag or whatever, and then you allow them to join? Probably not feasible, but just something that will allow traps to be set when friendly fire is on, but not have traps deadly to friend living in the same camp as you. I love co-op, love friendly fire, but something would need to be done about traps to make it work properly, I am sure.
  3. Oh come on, I still haven't even raised a single TEENBIRD yet.I haven't got a clue about insanity yet, or rain, or winter, I have only tried ONE of the new weapons, and that was a boomerang just ONCE.I fell behind a couple of months ago and the content is these updates is so immense I just can't catch up. I am playing sandbox custom, with only summer and no rain, and I am still completely lost, yet I was living way past 100 days before.I love how much stuff you have put in, and this looks fantastic, but please add an option to be able to disable content in the custom sandbox by UPDATE. So maybe disable everything from the spider queen update, or the turf update. And then everything since that update will be disabled. Only the new combat and HP for enemies and such would be in.I want to catch up but have limited time, and I fell the game is pushing me away now, it's just not fun to be playing this way.I feel I am trying to learn too much too fast, and I still can't learn enough by the next update and then I just get pissed because I know I have even more to learn then, and feel less like playing.PLEASE. I have been a loyal fan of Klei since shank and shank 2 (although I wasn't too much of a fan of the first shank I could see how some people could like it), and really fell in love with Klei with mark of the ninja and then don't starve.Don't desert me, I know other people feel the same, just help us out a bit. Having the custom options in sandbox helps, but it's not quite enough, especially with so much more content coming every 12-14 days.Help guys, don't leave us behind, I beg you
  4. Too Much, Too fast

    Was it "carelessness" that got you killed when you didn't understand the game mechanics? No, it was a lack of knowledge about the game. It's the same thing for some people now who have fallen behind.I haven't had chance to see a deerclops, have only been able to kill 1 koalephant (by blocking it's way out with hay walls because I only had a spear), and not killed 1 single baby beefalo, seen a single tier 2 or 3 spider nest, found any of the new gems, seen a marsh monster, any of the new items built from the magic tab in the build menu (where meat effigy is), or even raised a single baby tallbird into a teenbird. I haven't been able to hatch even one single tallbird egg since the turf update, and have never ever ever seen a teenbird at all. The teenbird update was when I started falling behind, so I have missed pretty much everything since then because I feel less and less like playing the game because it's a grind trying to catch up.Please understand how other people feel rather than just say they are wrong just because they don't have the time you have, or are at the same level of knowledge of the new updates that you have. It's called sympathizsing with someone, you should try it. You should ALL try it, the world might become a decent place to live again
  5. Too Much, Too fast

    You have played 40 days since the rain update just a few days ago?I have had chance to play less than 10 days, and that's 2 lives, one that was up to day 12 or so, and he lived for another few days until winter came and screwed me (that was the first time I had encountered winter), and a new character I started after my last post here that I have managed to get about 3 days into.Also, you say spec some time on the wiki to learn everything? I don't want to do that, I want to figure it out myself, that's the fun of it.I figured everything out before without a problem, but now I have fallen behind it's impossible to catch up.And to all you people saying "wow, complaining about too much new content"; nobody is complaining about too much content, we just want a bit of extra time to learn the older stuff that has been added since release. Since the spider queen update almost every 2 weeks has added a lot of new stuff and changed a lot of the old stuff. Once you fall behind with one of these and then another comes along you can't catch up, it's impossible.It's so bad that I have played sandbox with my newest character and I have disabled winter. I would like to be able to disable all update content since the spider queen if it was possible, so I could re-add it steadily at my own pace.Klei have admitted they are coming to the end of their development now, so things will be slowing down. However, this won't make a difference if the game is so different from how it started for some of us and we don't feel like re-learning it all again being at a disadvantage to all the people who have had time to learn it all as it has been added.Seriously, if you have had time to do 50 days since winter and 40 since rain, then you have more than 4 times as much time on your hands than I do. Sometimes I have more, but I have other games to play as well, so I get maybe an hour or 2 every few days and that's all I can manage. That isn't nearly enough time to even build the new items that have been added, or even harvest 1/10 of the stuff needed to make some of the new items. Then along comes a bunch more and I am even further behind.The new content is fantastic, Klei are on of my favourite devs of modern gaming, they rule. How they have been so helpful here, listened to everything people have had to say, and worked so hard to add new stuff and keep the game from breaking or glitching too much has been awesome, so it's not that I want to criticise anything they have done, I just want to be able to learn new stuff in the order everyone else has done but at the pace I can manage rather than constantly struggling to do it at a pace I have no chance of keeping up with due to time constraints and being so far behind with everything already.
  6. Too Much, Too fast

    We haven't had chance to LEARN HOW INSANITY WORKS. Also, we are supposed to find a beefalo herd or load of tallbird before winter comes so we can get enough meat remember. And every time I have tried to killed beefalo before winter comes they are in heat and won't chase me so I can't kite them. Since it is still the first days, and I have been spending all my time looking for a beefalo herd, all I have is a spear, so getting enough meat for an effigy is impossible. Pigs can't be kited now so getting meat from them is hard even if you can find enough of them to get 4 meat.It's just not that easy when are relearning all these changes to the base game. It's ok for you, you obviously don't have other things to do and can spend hours per day playing the game after each update to learn all this before anything new comes along.We have fallen behind and are trying desperately to catch up, like running uphill in a gravel pit, you just end up at the bottom no matter how hard you try once you have fallen behind that muchThis is the problem you don't seem to understand.And the more the game pushes us away, the less time we want to spend in the game, making it even worse.
  7. Too Much, Too fast

    This, this, this, exactly this.I haven't been able to see even 1/10 of the content from the last 2 months, because I find myself not wanting to relearn all I have already learnt, PLUS learn as much new stuff as well, just for it to change in 2 weeks when I haven't even had a chance to relearn the basics that have changed.I haven't seen a walrus, I haven't picked up 1 peice of nightmare fuel (I wasn't sure what it was until I just read in another thread), haven't seen the new marsh monster things, raised even 1 teenbird, killed single baby beefalo, used any new weapons past once using a boomerang, found any of the new gems, seen a winter koalephant.... I could go on.I haven't seen a spider queen for almost 3 months, because I don't have time to go for nests, and I am usually dead before they get to tier 2 because I don't know what I am doing.I haven't even been able to live long enough to get a beard with 4 beard hair to make a meat effigy since the update after the small turf update.And it's because I don't even know the base game anymore, and don't have a chance to learn how the new mechanics there work because there are so many new things that I can't learn that kill me every time.Just not fun, feels like a grind, and is putting me off playing the game
  8. Too Much, Too fast

    You aren't alone OP, I think too much has been changed way too quickly.The base game, when it was released on steam, was enough to learn the basics at a nice pace. Then they started adding things like spider queen nests and stuff, and turf, giving us a couple of weeks to learn how they fit into the game.Now they are changing the complete game mechanics, with sanity and winter having so much to learn that unless you have time to spend hours in the game every day or two, you just won't learn the stuff enough before another update comes and changes it in a massive way again, like adding rain, mushrooms, marsh monsters and other things like that.I haven't had much chance to play recently (I have a life, and I have other games I am trying to play as well), so I haven't even had a chance to play around with the sanity yet, and since I am rushing around trying to figure out what the new items do (I have only had a chance to try 1 boomerang, and none of the other new weapons since then at all) and get ready for winter so I don't freeze to death, I just find the game way too much to cope with now.I find myself far less interested in playing anymore. It's like cramming for a final exam rather than learning a fun game at a nice pace, which is what it used to be.Don't get me wrong, I love the new stuff that's been added and it looks like amazing fun, but having to learn it all in such a short time while also trying to get ready for winter just gets me killed either before winter even arrives or shortly after.I have only managed to survive to winter once, and since I hadn't been able to make any weapons to go after a koalephant I couldn't make a vest, I didn't have time to even find a beefalo herd so I couldn't make a hat, I just had to sit next to a fire non-stop and in the end I just ended up leaving my base and letting myself get killed because sitting next to a fire while your food runs out and wood burns away isn't any fun. It's only slightly less fun than doing that in real life.Perhaps add some way that we can enable/disable the things from the updates, so we can add them at our own pace and learn the game at a nicer speed that is more to each individual players time schedule?That's what I would love to see. If something like that doesn't arrive, I can see myself rapidly losing interest in the game very soon. I already find it a chore to play a lot of the time now, because I know there is so much stuff I haven't had a chance to do yet, and I know I won't have time to learn anything new before I die of a monster attack or freeze to death.Please klei, do something like that, so we can turn things like these off and on when we start a new game. That way everyone can enjoy the new content at their own pace, since we don't all have hours and hours every day spare to play the game and learn it all before you add more (amazing and fun) content that will just baffle us even more
  9. So it's known that this has happend TWICE now Kevin?I had this yesterday, had to reinstall and it worked. Now I come to my PC to see it has tried to update again and is "paused" again and I can't get it to finish again.Will a reinstall work again this time? A couple of people on the steam forums say it didn't work for them, that as soon as they reinstalled this time it went to update again and got stuck again, and does it each time. One person said he can do it and play but once he is done playing it updates again, so he has to reinstall every time he wants to play the game again
  10. Don't Starve Roadmap

    Still not loving how underpowered the spear is since the winter update.However, I am here to shower Klei with praise for one of the best experiences I have had with games and the online community of that game in... well, ever.This site and the game have gone hand in hand throughout development of the game, and allowing us, the customer, to be pretty much the engineers of where the game went, what was kept, what was discarded and what new things we wanted to see, was more than any other developer has done in any other game I own.Klei, you should be held up in front of every AAA developer and publisher in the business as a way to keep customers happy AND release a solid product.The game is fun, large, cheap, intelligent and hilarious, and I have experienced less bugs with 150 hours of this in beta than I have in 1 hour of ANY modern AAA title. That is how good you guys are, and you should be proud of that as well as how friendly and close you have been with this community.I don't want this message to sound like a goodbye, but maybe as the end of one chapter and start of another for this game.Can't wait to see what comes post-release, and thanks again for all the amazing work so far, you guys RULE!!!Oh, and remember... just DON'T STARVE, ok
  11. You misunderstand. I LOVE the updates, but people are happy with things how they are, so why change them and add new things? That just means they have to relearn everything.Not many people consider this a beta as such. I certainly don't. Beta's are usually buggy and have problems, and people playing them helps the devs iron out those problems. This game has less problems than your average AAA full release. It is one of the most stable games I have ever played.Also, it has been stated the game will continue to receive these updates for at least 6 months after release, so this isn't a beta thing, is it?But please do keep up the updates, all I am suggesting is perhaps think about what you change when you are also adding a ton of new stuff to learn.From what I can see there are quite a few people saying very similar things after this update. I really would like to see some of the combat mechanics change back, that's for sure. But I would never suggest no tuning or changes, that's not what I meant to say at all. Just that relearning everything every two weeks is a chore rather than fun, and it can be very very hard work when you are trying to learn new things as well.Maybe try not adding so much every update? I know, that's a rare request. People are usually clamoring for more content, right? I am just saying I like being able to survive past day 50, then start doing some of the stuff that isn't essential for my survival so much, but is nice, like building some of the things that are more cosmetic than necessary. As it is, I haven't built a bird cage for around 2 months now, because I either haven't lived long enough, or I am just too busy trying to survive even when I have my base up and running to think about making my base look nice.But regardless of anything else, DO keep up the great work, you are just about the best developer in the business at the minute (except MAYBE cdprojektred, who are pretty damn awesome), and I truly appreciate all the work you do, especially considering the price the game is sold for. Getting well over 100 hours out of a game I paid just £10 for (and got two copies at that) is the best value for money I have ever had in gaming that I remember.
  12. Thanks. This is one of the main reasons I love you guys so much. This is fantastic how you respect and listen to your community, both the praise and the criticism.However, when I say the things in my previous post, I don't want you to think I am tired of you adding new content and fixing things up. I am just saying that changing the old things is a bit much, meaning that all the game is new after every 2 weeks.Trying to learn the new stuff in 2 weeks is ok, but trying to learn the new stuff AND relearn the older stuff is not fun, it's like cramming for an exam or something.I don't like the combat as it is, that's for sure. Making the game harder in every other way, and then making the combat this hard, is stopping people from enjoying the end game.I used to love getting past day 50, and just nicely plodding along surviving and then trying some new things. But now I can't ever get that far, because I am constantly having trouble getting past day 10, because I have to risk dying to get loot to make things so I can just get past the first 15 days or so when winter is coming.I know you can change how long the seasons last in the options, but I like to play a game how it is designed to be played, and this game is just changing too many old things to hold my attention anymore.Keep adding new stuff though, the new content IS amazing, no doubt at all. Just have a thought when you come to change older things, like fighting pigs or spiders, when people are already perfectly happy with it.I had a hard time getting used to the spiders after the queen update, I tried and tried and tried. I got used to it though, and while I still prefer the spiders before, I do enjoy the spiders now. I just get rid of the nests at tier 1 as soon as I can, because the higher tier nests aren't fun to fight. This update has changed all that again though, AND added so much new stuff to learn that it's like a different game. And I have to learn it all in 2 weeks, and then I will have to relearn it all again in 2 weeks when the next update comes.It should work that I have to weeks to implement what I have already learned and am getting better at, while learning to deal with the new content. That way you are adding to your knowledge of the game world, rather than having to relearn the whole thing because it keeps changing.I really appreciate your reply though, and I TRULY appreciate your company on the whole, you have been amazing with your customers, better than any other company in recent years that I have dealt with.I will keep giving the game a try after every update, but I can't see myself getting into it how I have in the past now because I just don't want to have to relearn everything I should already know, AND learn lot's of new things as well
  13. Don't like the new update. Spiders take 4 hits? Can't even kill a pig now?I don't mind learning the new things, like with winter and stuff, but having to relearn all the old stuff as well? This game is getting old now, sick of learning everything from scratch after every update, AND having to learn new stuff.I thought they were supposed to adding to the mid-end game content? No, they aren't doing that, they are just making it so you can't GET TO mid game content, so they don't have to show how shallow the game is after 30 days or so.I loved this game, but the last few updates, while adding some excellent new things, have just changed all the old things so much that it's now a different game, and not the game I enjoyed a few months ago.It's a chore just to take down a tier 1 spider nest now... WHACK WHACK WHACK WHACK, just to kill ONE spider, then again... then back to the nest, once or twice more. And pigs... Well, they are supposed to be stupid and easy to kill, but now it's ridiculous. You can't kill them with just a spear, especially if other pigs are around because when you hit them once they ignore every hit after that while beating the **** out of you.I love klei, and they have sold me a game I have enjoyed for well over 100 hours. But I think I am done now, it's just hard work now instead of fun
  14. I vote the lovely Alex Jones for the pig king, but it would be impossible to get him to shut his mouth for a minute to film the pig king sitting quietly.I immediately thought of ed norton for wilson, don't know why, but I think that would work
  15. Insanity!

    I kind of agree. It's not a game about not starving anymore.I do like the insanity aspect, but it is the whole game now, while it should be just a part of the game.I played without doing too much and was insane and killed after 1 night. What is the point in wormholes if you can't use them? More focus should be put on the FEAR of the insanity, rather than the getting killed by shadows part of insanity. And as someone else stated, have it change the world around. Trees aren't trees, they could be rocks, or berry bushes, or spider nests even.I just feel that the whole vibe of the game, the whole mechanic of what the game was meant to be, is gone, and it's now just an action adventure game to fight insanity monsters and nothing else.Just tone it down some please, or at least give us the option to play without insanity present
