  1. I witnessed it too. Fire darts, sleep darts, and manure (probably only the ones I used to fertilize grass).
  2. Each character has a grave with his own name on it. Who dug it? Who dug the others? Maxwell?
  3. Question about Hounds

    Against hounds (with a smallbird): - I usually drop meat everywhere around my camp. If you spend a day chasing birds with some seeds you can pretty much cover the ground with (eatable) meat. That's the technique I used to protect my smallbrid when I was raising it for 10 days (because you know, you're never too sure!). It survived two hounds attacks doing so, beacause they don't do anything but eat the meat. Does not work if you have pigs or spiders too close.... - Make them fight other animals works but I personnaly favor tallbirds and bees (and pigs as long as they respawn). If you set up as many bee hives as you can and then add a bee trap it's ridiculously effective and you gather a lot of stingers. The meat doesn't get eaten. Doesn't work while protecting a smalbird though. Tallbirds are good fighters and don't eat monster meat neither. I don't know how they react to smallbirds (?!) - I do not recommand fire darts... at all... in any situation!!! In my opinion it's simply the best way to burn everything to the ground... - And last but not least.... Run. Running away generally allows you to dodge all their attacks and they always end up dying somewhere... When I played hardcore without crafting any item I mostly ran away. And after a while you just don't know where they are anymore... And that's it. I guess it doesn't work when 5-6 of them pop though.
  4. Hardcore challenge with Willow I was also very interested in trying to play the game in a hardcore way. I didn't want to craft any item and see how far I could go, and therefore I chose Willow who is the only character (to my knowledge) that allows to survive without crafting anything. What I don't like with crafting a torch is that it can be used as a weapon. Without it you either have to fight with your fists (ctrl + click) or to find a tentacle (quite challenging!). I had never used the new map generator before and I had to kill my previous character to do so :'( Here is my world after 21 days of survival After 12-13 days I had pretty much discovered all the map following the coast. But it felt still too easy so I went back and tried to discover the inside parts as well. As you can see I managed it except for the highly dangerous swamps. I didn't feel like doing an extra trip inside, just to discover... more swamps. The path was linear except for two bridges between zones 3 and 4. I didn't realized it was that linear before I got the whole picture! As in potatoe's map the beefalos' area was at the very end and I think it would have been very hard to play it in a "regular" way. If I think of a newbie player it must be very frustrating to see items that require manure and not being able to find it. I think at least 10 days of intensive search would be required to find the beefalo area. As you can see there is a tiny island with no bridge. Here is a picture of myself after 21 days In this picture I also wanted to show that it is actually possible to hunt birds with only one's fists. You have to bait them with seeds, then attack them (ctrl + click) at the right timing as you would do with another weapon. Three hits are required to kill it but it's not especially difficult since the bird is stunned after the first hit (like when you free a bird from a bird trap). It may not appear very important but this source of meat made my survival much easier for several reasons: - Meat allows to "hire" pigs, that can fight many monsters (giving out more meat or just protecting yourself) - Meat can bait hounds and many other monsters to win time during a fight - Meat has a quite good health / food ratio (I ate like 200 flowers beside that XD) Bugs / Comments - No pig king (assuming that it's not on the last island, which I don't believe) - No mandrake - I was able to fight a tallbird with my fists while it wasn't fighting back (I don't know the reason) - Many many many spiders, in almost every areas. - "only" five bee hives or so. The numerous graves This is a little something appart from the hardcore challenge. I am not a big fan of graves myself. I keep wondering: "why would there be so many grave on a otherwise inhabited island?". Does Maxwell dig them each time he leaves somebody on the island?? I have no clue of that. It might as well be on purpose. Anyway, I think that digging graves (which I haven't done in this challenge of course) shouldn't give anything else than......... bones! Bones could perfectly be included in the meat effigy's recipy btw. I don't find any interest in the items you dig from the graves and the amount of gold you can get from them (imagine with the 100 graves of this map...) ridiculous! Overall I likes the way the islands were splitted. It added difficulty and gathering ressources from an island to another must be much more rewarding.
  5. Unluckiest Moment Ever?

    Of course I don't count anymore the eggs I ate by mistake!
  6. Unluckiest Moment Ever?

    I had been carefully hatching two eggs for a couple of days. At dawn I clicked on one of them in order to place it closer to the fire. At this very moment both eggs hatched out and before I could do anything my character gave the bird a good swing of spear, which instantly killed it. The second bird then became hostile and I had to kill it as well.
