  1. Who's Who, Who I Missed?

    They're probably just having fun watching you guess.
  2. How long should the new seasons be?

    Well, keep in mind that you'll probably be able to adjust the seasons anyway, so they should make the default settings relatively difficult.
  3. Will Reign of Giants be the one big (heh) piece of additional content that will be expanded upon, or are there plans for frequent additions of individual DLCs?
  4. Wednesday DLC Update

    Spring Giant = Treeguard (jk) I hope there are giant hounds, beefalo, fish, etc.
  5. How many DLCs will there be?

    The main problem is sacrificing a 1000 day world in order to accommodate for a new DLC. That's why I would like to know in advance before investing too much in the world.
  6. How many DLCs will there be?

    Well, if they have other projects, they may only intend for 1 DLC.
  7. How many DLCs will there be?

    Yes, obviously. We're just wondering how many there will be. (I'm half-hoping that this will be the only DLC and that it will be expanded upon in the future).
  8. How many DLCs will there be?

    I'm just wondering because I'd hate to have to repeatedly reset worlds after a DLC comes out in order to have the new features. In fact, I'm holding off on Don't Starve until this one comes out...which is a bit of a pain.
  9. Webber ideas

    Or he becomes the spider from Limbo and provokes an abrupt bowel movement in everyone.
  10. Webber ideas

    Nothing about spider glands has been mentioned yet. Perhaps hunger is rapidly converted into health?
  11. Webber ideas

    Hmmmm...it's a bit strange. Just like the werebeaver, if he had night-vision that shouldn't really counter the Grue, because regardless she's not being warded off by any source of light.
  12. Webber ideas

    It has to be intuitive. If it's a spider character, players are going to expect characteristics similar to other spiders in the game (e.g. some alternative method of producing silk, or particular vulnerability towards fire). For instance, anyone can tell that Wolfgang is likely the most combat-oriented and strongest, also making sense for him to consume a lot of food and yet ironically be afraid of the dark fitting the stereotype. I don't really like Webber because he just seems tacky, like a little joke for more experienced players to scoff at. I'll withhold judgment until the Beta, though.
  13. To Each Their Own Effigy

    By that logic, everyone who used it would look like Wilson at the moment. Besides, I don't think that's one of their primary concerns. They'd have to devote artist's time, effort, money, etc.
  14. To Each Their Own Effigy

    The meat effigy should be shaped like a generic humanoid figure, boom it's universal.
  15. Webber ideas

    But then he rejected it and it haunts you to this day.
  16. What would you like implemented in this DLC?

    Instead of creating individual meat effigies for each character, there should instead be a universal one that just looks like a generic humanoid figure.
  17. Webber ideas

    So if producing what every other spider produces isn't one of his tricks, what is? Oh and 23rd made some good points about that as well. I mean, think about it - his name is "Webber."
  18. Webber ideas

    - No, because you can't befriend pigs and bunnies - they'll attack you on sight. - OK. - Perhaps. He's a spider, right? Besides, assuming he's unlocked based on XP, players will be already experienced enough to understand the mechanics of light (making the Grue a non-issue), thus it allows them to explore a night-oriented game with further freedom. - I don't see spiders sleeping in beds. - Yeah, it could. - OK. - ...Wouldn't that be an incentive to play a spider character? Also, later in the game you'll likely have a large surplus of food anyway, so might as well put that potential to use, eh? - OK. - What other turfs do...produce a different sound when stepped on, ambient noises, prevent lure plants from spawning (only in some cases), allow him to travel faster. Something different should be done with him, not just an adjustment of stats and numerical values (like practically all of the character mods out there, 450 health 300 hunger 40 sanity 300% speed boost is not afraid of anything spawns with a thulecite club). Even if the changes sound drastic, they should be tested before jumping to conclusions. It'd be a shame to miss an opportunity for interesting gameplay if you're too afraid to even venture there.
  19. Webber ideas

    - Spiderhat effect (only when wearing no hat) - Loses sanity in the day and gains at night - Can only sleep during the day - Doesn't require an item for sleeping - Eats anything without detrimental effects - Lower health - Eating excess food produces silk - Can walk across webbing at a faster speed (akin to cobblestone roads) - New turf: Webbing! Just a few of those.
  20. I wonder what the other characters are...
  21. Getting Ready for Reign of Giants.

    I hope there's a queen bee hive, similar to that of spider dens.
  22. Show us your camp!

    FTFY. I don't like FIFY.
  23. Getting Ready for Reign of Giants.

    Same. (Also, the trees look like something from Dr. Seuss).
