    I mean, the Cherry Forest is definitely temperate...think of famous places those tend to be grown in real life. Main-island Japan? Washington? Both temperate. The Shipwrecked biomes...I still like the idea that one day you could just sail away into the ocean and find tropical biomes on ISLANDS, as if you'd travelled into another climate. Now that we _have_ sailing and islands.. (I also want beaches. Because beaches. And PALM TREES!) ...Notorious
  2. Weeelll...it's gotten a little better since then, but the ORIGINAL way the sinkholes opened was fast enough to serioulsy hurt you, even if you kept moving: ...Here I am, wearing my Year of the Gobbler outfit and standing in the thing that hurt me. BECAUSE. ...and then when you also add hounds PLUS slowdown... Yep. Why am I in summer already when it's only Day 27? Well, there's starting in Spring, for sane people, and there's me. Random Seasons, baby! In this case, we had a short winter that then went _directly_ into summer. Fun times. (I could tell the season was going to change the next day, so I started saying in chat, "And, welcome to...." (dramatic pause, as the sun comes up) "...SUMMER?!" Sometimes this game has your back when it comes to amazing comedy timing. : P) Also you can count me among the ones who actually like the fashion goggles: They may DO NOTHING, but they let you look awesome while not doing it. Anyway yeah let us fish in the oasis earlier. Why the heck does the water only show up when everything's DRYING...? I would also like to not have to destroy my fashion goggles in order to make the necessary-to-not-die ones. ...Notorious

    I know, right? In fact, that's the exact comment I made at some point. "Oh, Senpai..! " (sakura petals flutter by on the wind) Or, the very first picture I took with it, a Steam friend (whom I _think_ also posts here? or used to?) called it "My Neighbor Catcoon". (This was taken with a really early version of the mod; I think only a day or two after it first hit the Workshop? Of course, autumn + dusk is also to blame for the MUCH pinker petals, but still...) For those of you who are confused, this biome is from the Cherry Forest MOD, and consoles can't use those. So... I was also using: Animal Variety (pinkish catcoon) Shipwrecked Characters (Walani) and (the old version of) Thirst (the kidney icon), in case anyone wonders. It makes a new biome in the world, with its own turf, creatures (the Cherrylings, which you've seen a few times in this thread), and rules (and the old basic birch-forest stuff--catcoons, pigs, ponds, the occasional rock, etc.). You can whack a full-grown tree a few times (used ta have ta KILL 'em!) to get a cherry or two, and then you can eat it plain/cooked, use it for crock pot recipes, or take it home and start your own orchard. The newer version also has stuff like little dragonflies (SO CUTE), new statues, flowers, and random petals sometimes blowing right by the camera. (Interesting look-back at how the mod evolved, for ADM, or cringy reminder? Probably yes. : P) ...Notorious

    Yeah, this current world has it and I keep ending up back there a lot. It's near the "Summer Lounge", which I made in a decently central location. Also my Deerclops eventually ended up there, but I never got a good picture of it. Just, I was like, "I'm running out of food. Let's go whack a tree and eat whatever falls out of it" and as soon as I got there, I noticed the ground shaking. : P ...Notorious

    (WARNING: For some reason I decided to write this post in stupid meme language. Enjoy........?) do not worry kiti. we has nom. no house, but we saif pig hav house, but no let in!!!!!!1 i see hous wen u seep I PLAN do not hungy kiti there is purpl lake fishes i no let die WE HAS PRESENT!! wat is present?? present is spring??? present is not spring. present is PUPPIES!!! it 4:00 at night tim for go seep, kiti. (AAAAAAND now I kinda want to kill myself. : P) SANE(r) captions: 1. Decided to trap up the winter Summer Lounge, so it'd be a bit safer if I got caught out here during a dog attack. 2. Colourful pig village! 3. I can see your house from here! 4. Shut up, kitty, I'm admiring the beauty of this weird purple lake. 5. "WHAT'S IN THE BOOOOOX?????" 6. Oh, thank GOODNESS. It has been a LONG December winter. 7. I WAS _FROZEN_ TODAY! 8. It's 4 o'clock pm and by Daylight Savings time, that means it's night! C'mon, kitty. Let's sleep. ...Notorious
  6. La LAAAA, la la la la la, la la, la KAT-A-MAR-I BEARD-A-SHI... (sorrynotsorry. ;)) As fun as Tumblebeard Wilson would be...yeah, you really do need to be able to shave it in summer. Maybe something more to do with his being a scientist? But I'm not sure which way is best yet. Hmmm... ...Notorious
  7. --Set everything to More (Lots isn't needed, as More IS already lots), good and bad. Probably have the world size at standard or slightly lower. Best with only one player, as the lag will MURDER THE ENTIRE NEIGHBORHOOD. Suggested character: Wigfrid, as you're gonna need armour right from the get-go. (There WILL be hostile mobs right at start, maybe even clockwork bishops.) Good luck! --Mess with the seasons. Put them all on "random" length. There's also a mod to make them even more so, if you're able to use them. Specifics: This mod goes usually by increments of 5 days (I think?) with possible lengths being 0-40 for summer and winter, and 0-50 for spring and autumn. Since "0" is a legit length, seasons CAN sometimes be entirely skipped. If you see the trees starting to go green in winter...prototype an endo fire, just in case. --Customised world shapes/landscapes? Well, again, if you're able to use mods, there's Desert Enhancement, which makes a world of mostly desert with some oases (and "nice" little surprises such as the occasional large, I mean like, Adventure-Mode time, clockwork biome). I remember one time I had no pine trees so I was SUPER HAPPY when a catcoon dropped one. "GOOD kitty!" (yoink) It was that kind of world. The same modder also made one called "Extra Worldgen Config" but it is currently BROKEN DUE TO TURN OF TIDES, so proceed at your own risk. The reason I mentioned it anyway? You could indeed have an Archipelago. :\ --If you can't use mods, try some stuff I did, such as setting things to Less and then turning up the meteors. BLASTED APOCALYPSE WASTELAND, WHOOO! Or at least that was the idea. --You can do various combinations of day/season difference to try for different "planet" feels, such as a dimly lit and cold one (more winter, no summer at all, mostly dusk/night) or a scorching desert (no winter at all, longest season summer, hardly any night, fewer ponds), or The World Has Stopped Spinning Entirely (ONLY winter and summer, ALL extremes, all the time!) And that's what I came up with for now. ...Notorious
  8. Don't Starve, According to A.I. Dungeon

    Well, I was doing like the beginning thing, where you first get there and are running around collecting twigs, flint, grass and berries. But I figured it had to stop somewhere, so... Sorry if people didn't like it. :\ ...Notorious
  9. So I decided to try a Don't Starve-esque prompt with A.I. Dungeon and see where it went from there. The parts that start with > are me, the ones that don't were added by the A.I. Here is what I ended up with: You wake up in the middle of a grassy field, with no idea how you got there. Something seems not quite right about this place. The first thing you notice is that your clothes are missing. You look around and see that they're lying on the ground nearby, but where did they go? Then you realize something else: you don't have any money! You've never been so scared in all your life. > You put your clothes back on and stand up, looking around. This place is entirely unfamiliar, and you seem to be in the middle of the wilderness--there are no signs of civilization anywhere. You take off your shoes and socks, then pull them on as quickly as possible. You're still wearing the same clothes you were wearing when you woke up, so it's easy enough for you to get dressed again. > Startled, you look around as you hear a strange squealing noise. You turn your head just in time to catch a rabbit with horns?! scurrying back into a nearby hole. You stare at the rabbits in front of you, which are hopping around wildly. They aren't very big, maybe three or four inches high, but they're moving fast. Their eyes are wide open and their mouths hang open like little black holes from their faces. > You stagger, dizzy, as you realise the edges of reality itself around you seem to be waving and warping. Are you going insane? The world begins to blur and warp around you. It feels like everything is spinning out of control, but you can't tell if that's true or not. > You decide that maybe you're just dizzy from lack of blood sugar, so you start looking around for something to eat. You walk over to the nearest tree and begin eating some berries that you find there. You grab one of the smaller ones, chewing it down until you swallow it whole. As soon as you do, a wave of nausea hits you, followed by an intense headache. > You look around quickly for some water to help wash the berries down, and find a nearby pond. Unfortunately there is a frog sitting next to it. A frog with a weirdly sinister expression. You try to sit down and rest, but the pain keeps coming. You feel like you might pass out, but manage to keep yourself conscious long enough to make a run for it. > "But where should I run to?" you ask yourself out loud. "Where IS this place?" You stumble through the forest, trying to stay alert and aware of what's happening around you. But you're getting tired, and the nausea is making your stomach hurt worse than ever. > Even worse, the sun is setting, and you have a feeling it wouldn't be wise to be caught out in the dark, in this place. You continue to wander through the woods, and eventually you come across a small stream running through the trees. There's a nice quiet spot near the edge of the wood where you can hide and wait for nightfall. > You start gathering twigs and grass to make a fire. As you are bending down to pick up a twig, you notice A bright light shines directly into your face, blinding you momentarily. Your vision goes white and then black, before returning completely normal. > Suddenly, you hear what sounds like creepy music playing in the background! Out here? In the forest? Your ears perk up immediately, and you look around. The sound is coming from somewhere in the distance, and it seems to be coming from far away. > It's getting dark now, so you light a makeshift torch and head towards the sound in the gathering shadows. When you get there, you discover the music is coming from an old phonograph. Nearby is an exhausted-looking man on a throne, who says "I'm sorry about all this." > You look at him blankly. "What? What's going on here? Who are you? What's with that music?" He looks at you, his eyes full of confusion. "I don't know anything about this," he says. "Why would you lie to me?" "Because I thought... well, I was hoping that we could work together..." > "Okay..." you say slowly. "Let's try to figure out how to survive in this wilderness." The man smiles. "Well, yes, if you insist." ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ And that's how Don't Starve Together started, apparently. THE END! Frankly I kept waiting for this thing to swerve CRAZILY off the rails, but other than having my clothes lost and yet still on me (?!) at the beginning, it stayed mostly pretty on-track. : P (Although...tiny rabbits with _black holes in their faces_. WTF. That's _way_ weirder than beardlings, and I just barely got there!) Maxwell saying "I'm sorry about all this" is pretty epic, though. ...Notorious
  10. Redesign the Oasis

    Well, as someone who lives right near/kinda in? a New World-style desert area myself, I'm all for adding scorpions to the game. Provided they're like neutral, and don't auto-attack you. And if they're poisonous, maybe make the antidote easier to get the ingredients for than in Shipwrecked, 'cos I have died MANY times due to "Where...is...the stupid...cor--" (ACK! dead) Maybe Webber can commune with them in some way, as a fellow arachnid. I would also like it if perhaps DST palm trees don't "comically" bonk you on the head QUITE as often while chopping them. I swear, it seems that happens to me _every single time_ I'm not wearing a helmet, and 0 times when I am... Also animals definitely WOULD live in an oasis 'cos it's the one part of the desert that CAN have plentiful food. Life, uh, finds a way, _any_ where it can. I'm sure everyone here has seen a crack in, say, a parking lot wirth a thriving mini-garden growing in it? Like that. (Also also, "sand and disappointment" totally sounds like something GrayStillPlays would say. : P) ...Notorious
  11. Redesign the Oasis

    I don't know about making the oasis REALLY Shipwrecked-y and adding mirages and stuff... All I want is the flippin' palm trees. Heck, have palm trees available SOMEwhere in the world and I'll chop 'em down, take the coconuts with me, remove the birch trees and plant the coconuts at the oasis _myself_, if I need to! ...Notorious
  12. Woodie - Killer confirmed?

    Well, I mean the Shining parody quote has been in the game forever "All work and no play makes me want to chop trees"--Lucy but the other thing is definitely just a "This character killed somebody else and this is my character-quote saying that I noticed that, in PvP" line. REDRUM...REDRUM... ...Notorious
  13. Also I dunno about the wording "make" them your valentine. Maybe "ask them to be". Like this: "if you could ask any forum member to be your Valentine, who would you ask, and how would you ask them?" That'd be better. ...Notorious
  14. updates characters need

    But you NEED the beard long to help with warmth in the winter! Don't make it a liability! (And on his sprite, even at full length it does _not_ go down long enough to trip him. It's long, but not THAT long.) Also I like the idea that at least _some_ character has a plain play-style, with nothing you have to constantly watch out for and balance or babysit. A character you can just...PLAY, as. Explore the world and figure out how to survive at your own pace. That's valuable for newbies who are just learning how the controls even work, _and_ valuable for veterans who want to play but also want a rest. A blank slate allows you to play YOUR way. Specific traits force a specific playstyle, or at least make it much harder to do a different one. ...Notorious
  15. Taming more creatures

    Yeah, I've always thought it's kinda stupid that whenever you raise a tallbird, it turns right around and pecks you to death. Yeah, yeah, "it's still a wild animal" but you raised it from _before birth_. It's NEVER known a parent other than you. And considering the amount of time and effort it takes...! THREE. DAYS of keeping it exactly the right temperature, watching it at all times, grabbing it away in the nick of time from hounds, spiders, or jerkass teammates...then it's so fragile that it dies to ANYthing, and frankly my automatic name for all Smallbirds is "Morsel". Because I've NEVER gotten it past a few days old. Then, if you somehow manage to keep it from dying to absolutely everything for a long time...it turns right around and attacks you. Like, I've never gotten why Tallbird-raising is even a THING that _exists_, in the game, if it's that pointless and bad. At LEAST have it attack us QUICKLY, or be easier to hatch! Takes a long time and is difficult _and_ doesn't even work is the worst of all worlds combination. Sure, actual tallbirds in the wild are SO aggressive they often peck their own precious babies, the ones that they will murder your face off if you grab it while still in its egg form, to death, and it seems to be the standard coming-of-age ritual for teenbirds to murder their parents. All for no practical reason, 'cos they're vegetarians! Still. Tallbird raising should be better or not exist. Like, it's such a waste of time and effort now, it feels like a flat--out troll move. "HA, ha, I triiicked you!" (mocking bratty-little-sibling voice) ...Notorious
