    All in all DS will always be a PvE focused game with PvP glued on just for a lil' funnsies. Don't take it too seriously, there are way too many issues with it. I am guaranteeing you right now, DST PvP will NEVER be perfect. It is what it is, broken, unbalanced, fun. Entirely there because "Why not?".
     

     

    The only way it could be considered an exploit is in a competitive environment and I really don't think PvP in games like this should be taken that seriously. If anything I'd encourage Klei to have the command automatically enabled upon entering a PvP world. That would at least ensure that everyone was on a level playing field - ping pending - and thus leaving the command as optional in PvE, as @Clwnbaby said the command is still very useful even in PvE and I personally find the game unplayable without it.

  2. I'm not even sure why that is allowed in game. 

    See: @Clwnbaby

     

    psycho

    Does XirmiX now consider everyone that PvP's a psycho? Sign me up then.

     

    @blowtorch, Yes. The server is lying to you about where you are so it looks nicer, that other player has told the server to not lie to them and therefore they can see where you're really standing.

     

    @ThaumicParrot, The host of a server automatically has this, the game still counts move prediction as being on but since the server is what generates the prediction and the host is the server they have none. That's why you never join a player hosted PVP server, the host ALWAYS wins.

     

    However if you're hosting a dedicated server on your PC and are playing on it as a client then you likely will have a slight ping even if it' s just 5, you'll still see what's happening a lot clearer but would still benefit from using the command.

  3. legitimate problem...

    What does that command do?

    The server is constantly trying to make the game look like singleplayer DS by using "Movement Prediction" In which you are allowed to move about as you would normally, but that is not actually happening. You move on your screen but you move on the server a few seconds later. That is why sometimes you get pulled backwards, the game has realised that the action you attempted was not actually possible so it "rubberbands" you back to the point that the action became impossible. 

     

    Using the command simply removes this prediction and allows you to see what is actually happening, therefore the game appears much more laggy because that's how laggy it actually is. And since you can see where you are on the server with it turned off it gives people an advantage in PvP due to the fact that they can kite players with the prediction on since they aren't seeing them next to them yet, AKA people with it on (this is the default) see all servers with a delay, much like how Twitch.tv has a delay on it's streams.

  4. @t0panka, I wouldn't call it that, I've yet to find a game with that system that didn't at some point develop a hierarchy over the harder to unlock cosmetics. It's called classism and humans often default to it. Looking at the DST community as it stands the addition of an unlock system may very well be the straw that breaks the camels back. 

     

    But who knows? Maybe I am crazy and the DST community will be the first ever to coop with this system without becoming a toxic mess of idiots? I don't know. It's possible, just unlikely.

     

    @Mudley, That's not a bad idea. I still don't see the point in unlocking the skins. DS games are meant to have a long lifespan so it always seemed alien to me to have an XP system. Especially one tied to death.

  5. important to make skins unlockable
    "Play X hours with to unlock the first skin"
    Cool,skins unlock by achievements.I like that idea

    Don't forget that if this happens then there DST will attract that incredibly annoying community of people that always use the final AKA Pro Skin and anyone that doesn't use this end game skin of godhood is clearly terrible at the game and should be shot.

     

    I say just add the skins and make them all available to everyone from the start, like the characters themselves. That will avoid one skin being seen as "The pro one" And then we can all just dress how we like without having that one crowd call us noobs.

  6. log meter constantly visible as Woodie
    log meter constantly present

    I'll just add that it also looks really out of place and weird. I'd prefer if Lucy was still the only warning (Perhaps lower the transformation threshold to 15 to compensate?) I feel like having it on screen breaks the games rule of "Learn by screwing up" I can't think of a reason for it to be on screen other than to inform new players of the need for logs / make sure new players don't overeat logs.

  7. jungle turf

    Hmm the first thing that comes to mind for a Jungle biome is monkeys. But they're already in the caves.. I guess it wouldn't be their first biome move. And it certainly makes more sense for them to be in a Jungle biome. OR MAYBE *Tin foil hat has been equipped* Klei has come to the conclusion that Caves are too difficult for them to add so they are simply going to expand on the surface in order to put all the caves stuff there instead! *Tin foil hat has been stored inside bin* Or maybe not.

  8. Honestly Woodie's current incarnation is pretty well rounded for a multiplayer environment. He can collect stupid amounts of wood that you will never be able to use, mine more rocks, flint, nitre, and moon rock than you ever thought you wanted all the while looking cool with his talking sidekick supreme axe of destruction and now he can pretty much morph between his forms at will for the speed boost, night vision, and cuddle factor!

    He has almost no issues and the vast majority of the problems people have been listing can be fixed with a single word, *teamwork*

    He was given 25% Beaver armour and a natural umbrella. All of my wants for Woodie have been met, now if you'll excuse me I have some massive deforestation to take care of.

  9. I for one greatly prefer the new rework of Woodie and think it should remain as it is. The only thing I would change about him at all now is the lack of armour the beaver has, even grass suit level armour would be nice.

    Right now Woodie is very very good. However with even the slightest change to allow the beaver more survivability would make him perfect.

  10. determines the outcome of a PvP fight by making the player get all sleepy

    I have beaten many players who had the flute or sleepytime stories while I did not. It's not impossible in any way, it's just very tricky to do and requires a little preparation, one single mistake in your attack strategy and you're dead.

     

    Also the Book is far harder to battle since it has a larger range than the flute. Honestly I don't mind the sleep affect, the only change to the book or flute that I would like to see is maybe a range reduction that only affects the effective range on players. Or maybe an increase in the cost of the book, it forces a dream state so why not have it use Milk in the recipe? Wicker does describe it as warm milk in book form, this would also give more purpose to The End is Nigh as you could use it to gather Milk. (even though I'm not a fan of recipes that include perishables... damn lighter.... )

     

    The flute isn't that bad but with the book if you can see someone you can knock 'em out. 


  11. Griefers will always exist. The question is, why give them an incredibly destructive and utterly unstoppable griefing tool, and make that tool trivial to acquire?

    Never ever EEEEEEEEVVVVVVVVEEEEEEEERRRRRRRR try to balance the game around griefers! Balance it assuming that every single player is an angel and would never dream of doing anything destructive. Then the end product will be a great game! Just leave the griefers to the Admins and to the anti-grief mods.

     

    Let the large amount of people that only play with trusted friends go forth into the DST world unharmed by a massive change to a mechanic that only serves to stop the 1/10 players of the game who will EVENTUALLY be banned from all servers.

  12. @applebottom, For me I am plagued by boredom from restarting too often! I like to invest in a world to the point that we don't just have a base, the entire map is my base. Once I can control everything that happens in the world and I have plugged all of it's resources THAT is when I feel completed! 

     

    Obviously that can'y happen in Public servers but then in a Public server 9/10 someone burns the Reed Trap anyway and the other 1/10 they burn it because they're cold.

     

    But on the other hand I do find it fun to just watch new players, help them a little but mainly just watch... Noobs do the darndest things.


  13. So I've been thinking about how certain Set Pieces fit into DST and I thought I'd make a little place for us to kick around a few ideas concerning the future of Set Pieces and how they fit into DST. 

     

    Most of the Set Pieces are nice to get but don't make or break a world. Except for the Reed Trap. 

    For most of us the Reed Trap is a necessity, most of us going through world after world searching for a Reed Trap before even considering making something of that map. 

     

    And in DST time is more precious, if you want to make a proper world with your friends you need to tip-toe your way around all of your schedules to fit in a decent amount of game time, because of this most people don't want to bother world regening for hours trying to get the holy grail that is the Reed Trap. 

     

    I for one feel like the more important Pieces should either be guaranteed to spawn or have an increased chance to spawn to - at least - speed up the tiresome process of trying to get certain Pieces. 

     

    So I pose the question to you all, what do you think of how the current system of Set Pieces fits into DST? Should it be changed by Klei and if so how? Or should we simply suck it up and go with the RNG or perhaps even leave it to mods? 

     

    Whadaya think guise? And if anyone is open to making a mod that does this, you should do that thing mkay.


  14. @Bonzi, Maybe they could explore seasonal foods/drinks? idk with the addition of Bernie my mind has been expanded to new heights of mechanical wonders so roll with me on this.

     

    Say you can drink a Milkshake in Summer for 30 Hunger, 40 Sanity, 15 Health and lowers your temperature by 20 degrees.

    HOWEVER, If you drink it in Autumn it gives you 30 Hunger, 15 Sanity, 5 Health and doesn't change your temperature.

    Then during Winter it could be 30 Hunger, -20 Sanity, -10 Health and lowers your temperature by 20 degrees.

    And finally Spring. 30 Hunger, -10 Sanity, 0 Health.

     

    SEASONAL FOODS! There's a bunch of food you could already sort into this system. It's a lot more to remember.. But it seems fun. 


  15. rve Together to give to a friend, or does it automatically go to the friend who gifted me Dont Starve, or do I have to claim it somehow? Thanks. 

    If any player already had Don't Starve Together in their library they do not and will not receive another copy of Don't Starve Together. If a player ONLY had Don't Starve in their library on the 3rd of June they were given Don't Starve Together. 

     

    If ya had DST already ya get nothing.


  16. Willow has learned to cook using her lighter

    Amazing.

     

    Willow finally found Bernie, her childhood teddy bear

    Amazing.

     

    Insanity alters Willow’s perception of the world, making the temperature feel chillier than it actually is
     

    A-MA-ZING.

     

    Willow is slow to burn (Immune to fire damage for the first 3 seconds)

    That's a nice way of fixing it!

     

    Willow got better at making her lighter and now uses fewer materials

    Not sure what the new recipe is yet but I found the old one easy as it was! So making it easier is awesome!

     

    10/10 I will definitely be playing a LOT more of Willow! (Klei you should really look into insanity type buffs / debuffs for other characters, it's an interesting mechanic)

  17. @Kzisor, Actually it would be more effective to let some of the berries turn into rot which you use on the bushes, and use the poop to make more farms or books.

     

    I'm only going to weigh in on Wendy here, but you have an entirely flawed perspective of how she can be played.

    Now that I think about you're right. I just don't play Wendy enough to really know how true power off hand. I should play around with her a bit more.

     

    Wigfrid is just an easier to use version of Wolfgang
     

    This is true but AH! Now what is that I see? A Wigfrid and Wolfgang working together? WHAT IS THIS MADNESS AND WHY IS IT SO POWERFUL?! But really they do work pretty well as a team. 

     

    5. Spiderboy

    Actually "Spiderboy" can gather just as much silk as Wendy since he can command spiders to attack each other resulting in a massive war, also it only takes 8 spider eggs to make the war ALMOST never-ending (Since I found that spiders will actually respawn long before the fight ends) effectively making a constant supply of Silk, Glands, and more meat than you could ever hope to eat.

  18. just remove wimpy form

    I disagree.

     

    WX should start with 2 gears

    I agree.

     

    Willow should be immune to summer

    I STRONGLY Disagree.

     

    wendy needs to do full damage

    I disagree.

     

    Also as a possible nerf for Woodie, keep him as he is except make Lucy craftable. She would be an infinite axe as intended but if anyone that isn't Woodie uses her, it takes about 30+ chops to fell a large tree? She could still be infinite but only useful in Woodie's hands. 

    You would still need some way to get rid of excess Lucy's so that they don't start taking over the server.. hm
