      UPDATED - Studio Note & Rhymes with Play Streams Temporarily Canceled.   03/06/2020

      UPDATE (3/19/20): Just a quick note regarding the team at Klei Entertainment. As noted previously, everybody at Klei Entertainment is working from home due to the Covid-19 outbreak. Many of us have been working especially hard to help maintain operations as we all move out of the office and into our homes and with everything being done online, extra time must be spent in organizing conversations and trying to maintain communication. As some of you may know, we have a very open office and we are almost always in contact with each other as we go about our days. Some of us work across multiple teams and that work has become a bit more challenging for everybody.   That being said, at this time the transition has not caused any major disruption in our operations, but it would be overly optimistic to expect that we won't have any delays at all. We're going to have to be especially mindful about this in the coming weeks and make sure we don't take on too much work so we can keep things running smoothly.  We will let you know as we see how these changes affect our timelines.  Thanks UPDATE (3/10/20):
      The test yesterday went well. We got the whole office (mostly) to work from home without significant issue. As a result, Klei Staff that can work from home have been asked to do so until further notice.  This means that we will have to cancel the Rhymes with Play stream until we are all back in the office. This shouldn't affect anything else at least in the short term, but if things change I will update you all here.  Original Post: Hey everybody,  This Tuesday March 10th, 2020 the entire staff at Klei will be working remotely for 1 day in an effort to prepare the studio to work remotely for a little while if the need arises.  Klei is already set up pretty well to allow for working remotely, however we are going to have a one day "dry run" with the whole studio so that we can identify and avoid any issues or downtime that may arise should choose to implement a work from home policy due to COVID-19 outbreak concerns. Unfortunately this does mean that we will be canceling the “Rhymes with Play” Art stream this coming Tuesday, however unless the situation changes we expect everything at the studio to be back to normal Wednesday and we’ll continue our regular stream schedule Thursday March 12th. If the situation changes at all, we'll let you know. Thanks for your understanding.

  1. Natural Disasters

    I didn't know what you meant at first (I'm still new here), but yeah. Pain Randomizer.
  2. Natural Disasters

    Anyone who's ever purposefully opened the debug menu in Sim City in order to set off a disaster, raise your hand.>_>^I especially like the idea of tornadoes that can scatter items, and maybe do damage to crops.Although why stop at natural disasters? This strikes me as just a smaller part of a larger random events system that could be very fertile ground for modders if implemented.
  3. I think this makes more sense than the standalone crock pot.
  4. I've noticed that there are basically four kinds of Savannahs: Small/large, and Rabbit/Beefalo. Large Rabbit savannahs definitely have too much food in them.
  5. This idea takes a game that is already struggling with balance issues, and makes the matter (literally) exponentially more complex. Personally I find it adds a grinding element that I'm not comfortable with (and I like grinding). I don't want to feel compelled to make a fishing rod for 10xp. I want to feel compelled to make a fishing rod because I want fish. I don't want to feel compelled to attack something just for the 'experience' of doing it. If I attack something, it's either because I want what it has and can only get it by force, or to end a threat against me. And with the changes in the tech tree, I feel the design of the game is going in the other direction anyway, where your power is measured in resources more than anything else.
  6. They'd need to be WAY more expensive for that to be balanced, and bed rolls can already be made in stacks for the exact same effect. Not to be overly negative, but I'm categorically against the idea of taking items that already offer too much bang for the buck, and giving them even more.Bed rolls (and to a lesser degree tents) need a nerf, not a buff. As I've said before, there's a rational argument to be made for bed rolls giving -1 sanity, because that's still effectively +9 sanity (give or take) when you factor in what losses sleeping at night prevents.
  7. New update is toooooooo hard.

    That always bugged me. Three hits is fine; I can compromise on 2 hits.
  8. New update is toooooooo hard.

    I dislike it because it takes me out of the survival genre (which I see as inherently a solo mission) and into the RTS genre.
  9. We really need to get the interest of the Dark Souls community. They knew how to deal with those people.
  10. I'm still new at this so I try to take a flexible approach. I do build structures, but they exist to serve exploration needs rather than being an end in their own right. If needs be, I'll build a few small outposts away from the main camp. It depends on what I'm doing.
  11. Huge pig villages?

    Everyone seems to be having this issue with today's update. Hopefully they won't take two weeks to release a fix dialing back the pig spawn rate by at least 75%.
