  1. maybe extra life or winter immunity.... considering she looks like a viking.
  2. Reign of Giants: Your Discoveries

    now i know why my game appeared to be tinted orange .... it was autumn
  3. Reign of Giants: Your Discoveries

    i want a giant mole that protects the tiny little mole from our scruples-less attacks.
  4. Reign of Giants: Your Discoveries

    just found the pan flute and the statue myself
  5. Reign of Giants: Your Discoveries

    my mum always told me not to stand beneath trees when its stormy.... might get struck by lightning no thanks
  6. Reign of Giants: Your Discoveries

    here is my findings so far (30min of gameplay): 1 - Acorns are OP IMO, they are very good, restore allot of hunger and health when cooked in the fire, my personal forest is now an acorn tree forest, i'm assuming they will not produce acorns through all the seasons, in winter the acorn trees should be leafless (read wilson's examine comment) 2 - moles are very nice to have around you can dig up their holes for 1/2 stone very good and they are easily killed for a morsel if you are desperate. im assuming if you abuse the moles they will later spwan a mole giant (?) 3 - there are more maxwell stuff around thats for sure, found 3/4 new biomes, no gears though, only marble statues/pilars and evil flowers. 4 - frog pond placement seems to have changed too, they now spawn less in the immediate area, so you are less likely to have 5-8 ponds next to each other like you used to. on my world i found 2 separate ponds both in different biomes away from each-other, much better. also i noticed that each pond is capable of spawning more frogs i swear i saw 4/5 frogs near a pond but did not have a good look because then was night and they dove in the water. 5 - yes water/wetness mechanic got to number 8 nothing happened. not sure whats the deal with that, saw new raincoat too dunno whats it for 6 - endothermic fires .... built one looked cool dunno whats for... the description is a bit confusing :S 7 - Saw a buzzard tried to attack it but it took off, then saw the shadow on the ground that was cool! 8 - mini glaciers, yes glaciers .... puddles that freeze and you can mine them, got an ice clump out of one dunno whats it for.
  7. i dunno i think not being able to sleep is kind of a big deal, that's my primary way of getting large chunks of sanity back
  8. i would look carefully at the whole updating thing on the console. Romino got a bit burned with Awesomenauts, in the end they had to abandon all development of further updates and patches to their game on XBOX live and PS3 due to the fact that updating for consoles is VERY expensive (for a small indie company) which in the end they had to put all their efforts into the Steam version (which they solely own), in the end console user got a bit upset due to the fact that they paid more than steam users for a copy of the game and their platform is no longer supported by the DEV team which means console users are stuck and PC users had far more content and that makes console users VERY angry.... if you plan on releasing regular content for consoles it might turn out unfeasible (large amounts of cash) if you plan on releasing less frequent but higher quantity updates, PC/MAC/Linux users will lose out on the long run. if you plan to continue the the 3 week release schedule for PC/MAC/Linux, but have a different update schedule for consoles (lets say 1 update every 2/3 months). Console Users will not like that and will rage!all i am saying is Klei be very careful! this is a word of caution. i am and always will be very confident on you ability as a game developer, i trust you to do the right thing.edit: yeah control suport for Steam users with big picture is a plus for everyone in the long term
  9. We're Live!

    may i just say that this has been by far one of the BEST Beta experiences i have ever had! (and i have had a few from WoW, to PS2, to COH, COH2 etc.... ) the open development concept really worked and the devs are a nice bunch of people!
  10. ok ,here is my second take ! version: 76013 Which level did you play? (Don’t forget to write down the name when you start!) The king of Winter How would you rate your Don’t Starve skill: Beginner, Moderate, or Expert? Moderate - i have about 60 ish hours into DS, and i have been playing on and off since the queen update. Did you end the level by teleporting or by dying, and at how many days? Died, horribly jumped by 2 McTusk hunting parties. it was day 4 What was the most challenging aspect of the level? (Think about resources, enemies, light and sanity, food, shape of the world, etc...) well i think was doing OK for resources plenty of food and basic resources, even had mined some gold so i could have made the science machine! but ... greed got hold of me, on a quest to find out how the radio on the stick works i ran into 2 walrus camps and met my doom. What did you have the most fun with in this particular level? What was the coolest part? for me on this one has to be the skeletons they have so much useful stuff in them, found one at the beginning with winter hat and back pack full of goodies, and 2 blueprints (winter hat/earmuffs), then found the farmer skeleton the one with the pitch fork and the manure, then found another skeleton with some sticks .... find cool stuff is so much fun! What was your overall strategy for beating the level? Did you change or adapt the strategy as the level went on? find the basics things to start with after a couple of days, i decided to test out the radio on a stick, and got burned even though it was leading me closer to the objective it was also leading me closer to impeding doom! And of course if you have any other comments on the overall play and feeling of the level, fire away! i dunno if it was luck with world creation or what? but this level seemed allot less harsher the the other one i tried (A game afoot)
  11. ok ,here is my take ! version: 76013 Which level did you play? (Don’t forget to write down the name when you start!) The game is afoot! (or something) How would you rate your Don’t Starve skill: Beginner, Moderate, or Expert? Moderate - i have about 60 ish hours into DS, and i have been playing on and off since the queen update. Did you end the level by teleporting or by dying, and at how many days? Died, horribly gancked by grue at day ..... this is kind of embarrassing ...... day 1 What was the most challenging aspect of the level? (Think about resources, enemies, light and sanity, food, shape of the world, etc...) well i spawned in a world without flint, no flint no tools, and i spawned in a world where in my starting area was scarce on grass, most of it was plucked already .... no grass no torch no tools no log no camp fire ..... died lonely in the night What did you have the most fun with in this particular level? What was the coolest part? so far that was my first horrible attempt, so i have to say the new thingy i like to call it radio on a stick! What was your overall strategy for beating the level? Did you change or adapt the strategy as the level went on? find grass, find twigs, find flint ...... i failed :S managed to find some berries and a few twigs though! And of course if you have any other comments on the overall play and feeling of the level, fire away! well apart from failing, i have to add that i could see some grass/rocks/twigs on a nearby biome, but it was full of high level spider dens.... no was i was gonna make in there without any armor/tools/weapons
  12. well , when berry farming was OP and excessive they used gooblers to dissipate that so .... why would you create a "system" to combat exploit ?
  13. my opinion is this :bunnies in chests should become beardlings after a little while maybe 2/3 days, wouldn't anyone go insane being locked inside a tiny box along with other 8/9 companions?food on the crockpot should not spoil because it is still "slow cooking" however after maybe 1/2 days if you don't harvest the food it breakdowns into wetgoop because you have overcooked it!food in the drying racks should not spoil but a a much slower rate if you had harvested the food! (i mean the jerkies haven't go that much nutritional value in them)
  14. Not so noob, needs help!

    ok, thanks for the advice guys. i will try those techniques. but what if you far away from everything, do you just have to continue running ?
