  1. Don't Starve Shower Thoughts

    Scientia potentia est. Knowledge is power.
  2. How to build a pvp base?

    What I would do whenever me and my friends play on a PvP server is... rig it. There was a wormhole that led to a desert, which was where our base was. There would be a road, which led to our base. Fortunately, as I always play Wickerbottom, I always rush On Tentacles and the magic stations so that I can get that sweet, sweet End is Nigh. Whenever someone would follow the road to our base, they'd get killed by tentacles So yeah, just rig your base and you'll be fine. It might also be nice to put it somewhere where no one goes (like Pig King), but that might end up hurting yourself more.
  3. Perhaps Maxwell offered Wigfrid the ability to basically become a Valkirye warrior for her part in the drama?
  4. Every now and then, the question of Wigfrid and her pasts has always been asked. "Is she actually a viking?" "Has she went insane with acting?" Well sir, I', here to give a short explanation as to why Wigfrid is the way she is. Let's look into modern-day theatre and acting - and we'll start with the concept of method acting. Basically, method acting is a tactic that some actors use in order to do their best onstage, or onscreen, or wherever. What they do is, instead of just simply acting as the said character, they literally try their best to make themselves that character - going as far as going on strange diets, refusing to eat, almost never revealing their real self to public. One example is Heath Ledger, who used method acting to turn himself into the Joker (from Batman). However, said character also messed up his life itself, sometimes staying up for hours in a night being awoken by the Joker's insane thoughts. Now, back to the Don't Starve universe. Wigfrid is probably also using method acting, as she seems to manipulate her own diets (only meat), her body structure (strength), and knows how to craft more realistic props for her character. Of course, there are times when she breaks out of character, and that is also perfectly logical. I'm not sure if it was Heath, but whoever was playing Two-Face in one of the Batman movies was using method acting. However, one of the crew members was carrying a light, which completely threw the actor off, getting him off-character. Fortunately, he was able to get back into character quickly. Wigfrid also experiences this at times, while inspecting certain items. I hope you enjoyed my brief essay on Wigfrid and her relation to real-world acting. Thanks!
  5. Ice sculptures

    Perhaps the Ice Sculptures have to be crafted with a Blue Gem? This will keep it from melting.
  6. Have you ever thought about the most absurd questions about the DS franchise that you've asked yourself many times in the shower? Ever wanted some thoughts or answers to it? Well now you can! (get those) Here, you can ask whatever strange questions you want for others to see, comment on, or even answer. Here's an example. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- 1. If every sanity aura decreases exponentially the farther you get from it, does this mean that our character is still experiencing every sanity aura of every mob, but it's so ridiculously small that we never notice it? 2. Will Nome ever notice me? 3. How can our characters go on for so long without sleeping? 4. How did Abigail die? 5. Is Wendy really that depressed? 6. Why is WIlson so adorable? =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= And, if you ever happen to try and answer their questions, you should use an @ to get back to them. If you see that a question has been answered, edit your post and cross it off the list using a strikethrough. You shouldn't have to create a new post if you come up with more. So, what are you waiting for? GIve me the most ridiculous DS questions you've ever had, and maybe try answering some! You can start with the example I provided.
  7. Just to clarify, the Character Knowledge (K) field applies to all characters and not just Wolfgang (I barely ever play him). The 6 rating was meant to imply that someone may be so experienced in handling a character that it almost seems like they are the character themselves, in this case, Wolfgang.
  8. Maxwell Memes: The Sequel

    "We need to build a moonrock wall seperating the WX78s from base. Those filthy WX78s our eating our gears and wasting our End is Nighs. "I will build a great moonrock wall -- and nobody builds moonrock walls better than me, believe me --and I'll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great moonrock wall around our base, and I will make Nome pay for that moonrock wall. Mark my words." -Wickertrump
  9. Thanks for checking this thread out, guys! Rating yourself wasn't absolutely necessary, but now that you guys are already starting, might as well post them here for fun.
  10. Hi! I've played with a lot of people in my past, and, of course, most of them had many different skill levels. It gets kind of hard to measure their skill and what I do/don't need to teach them, so I've made a scale for both new and experienced players to use to roughly propose how good they are (and how well they work with other people). This will be split up into five scales, all from 1-5: -(E) Efficiency (how well you plan out your days, your base, your boss fights) -(F) FIghting (how well you know how to kite and kill various mobs and monsters) -(C) Cooking (your knowledge of the most efficient crockpot recipes, and how to make them) -(K) Character Knowledge (how much you know about your character, and strategies you use with them) -(L) Leadership and Teamwork (how well you can cooperate and deal with other players) Formatting example: E4 F5 C4 K3 T3 Yes, I am aware that this scale is definitely subject to criticism, plus it may not fit in all cases. If you'd like, suggest more categories to add to this scale as there's probably a lot of them I'm missing out on, or you can suggest a change to it constructively. Thanks! (I understand that this will probably cause controversy, arguments about subjective players, flame wars, etc., but please do not go there. The only reason why I made this is to make things easier for you and your friends. Do not let this become another meatballs nerf thread or else I'll just delete this topic because god almighty I've seen enough of those, thank you, goodbye.)
  11. Hey there, starverinos! Currently, I'm working on a world called "Mr. Popper's Pengulls" with a couple of friends from my Discord. We have about 8 people working on it (don't worry, they haven't all been on at once yet), including me. The server is public, but if you'd like to help out you can join whenever you see it, or you can check out our Discord where you can get notified whenever we play. We're on about day 120 and buisness is booming! I like to keep things clean, so we don't have any mods on this world, and neither are we ever planning on installing any. Unless you literally have no idea what you're doing, generally I'm pretty acceptive of most skill levels. Who's Playing Who: SkyCommision - Wickerbottom MakotoNanaya - Wigfrid zzkitty42 - Wendy (gone for a week) FatherLuma - Wilson CliffHanger - Maxwell Wothur - Webber (as usual) Charlie - WX-78 Grizzly Woodsman - Woodie Thanks!
  12. Thinking of a private DST server

    @TheKingDedede A bit of a necro, but that's alright. I haven't had the time to put this plan into motion, plus, school starts again in about a week. This probably won't be happening in the near future, but it will happen eventually.

  15. Metheus second player needed

    There's a thread for this! It may be a little old, but it's not ancient history (hasn't gotten a reply in a week). Try asking here and maybe you'll get someone to help you out. Otherwise, you can go on r/dontstarve and find a buddy there.
