  1. After going through a full summer in a new world a few times, all the heat and fire made it memorable as I was overheating most of the time on the surface away from base since they're were things that needed to be built. While I was running around however it made me remember the sheer difference in quality Winter has over Summer in keeping your temperature regulated. Comparison & Contrast: For instance, in Winter it's really easy to keep warm. You have torches to light something like a tree on fire for quick warmth/light. Campfires are easy to build, and if you manage, you can even get ahold of a Scaled Furnace that can keep you warm along with everything else it does for you (and maybe an Extra-Adorable Lavae with enough luck). In Summer, it's not as good to say the least. The only dependable way of getting cool when traveling is Snow Chester, Endothermic Fire, Ice Cube, Luxury Fan and... Chilled Amulet I suppose? I realize there are a few more options but they're just... bad. Whirly Fans, Fashion Melons, Water Balloons I mean. There are more ways to keep yourself cool compared to keeping you warm but the difference in item quality is nuts. The ingredients to make a torch and campfire are really easy to get and farm. The furnace and chance for the Lavae require you to beat a raid boss and some luck and that's it, you get a forever heat source that can cook and provide minor light in the form of the furnace, and the Lavae does the same except it can be bundled whenever you need it. In contrast, the Endothermic Fire's main ingredient Nitre can't reliably be farmed compared to wood. There is only one Chester and more than likely he's not in Snow form. The Ice Cube sucks to maintain, slows you down, makes you really wet, and lowers your movement speed. The Luxury Fan is really nice to have, but more than likely you won't have more than one or two to go around given how Moose/Goose spawns around the world (or doesn't half the time). The Chilled Amulet is the only good one for the first or second summer, I'd use it more often if it lasted a bit longer than it currently does. Suggestions & Ideas: The short term proposal I have is to just change somethings around (internally/number-wise?) so that the nesting sites always spawn a Moose/Goose during Spring, they're scattered throughout the world anyway so it probably won't matter that much if it spawns near the ponds in a random place. Another thing I think would be fitting is to have the Moose/Goose Eggs themselves drop some Nitre after it breaks/hatches since it isn't a normal eggshell after all and is conductive. Another is to just buff some of the items to make them worth using, like the Ice Cube for instance. The long term proposal on the other hand could be apart of the long awaited Summer Rework that gets talked about from time to time, maybe Fire as a whole since it's such a big part of Summer. I remember some talk about how fire in general could be changed and improved overall but I haven't seen much talk about Cold Fire which I feel as a part of the long term solution. Freezing Flames: Cold fire is amazing, it looks great and has a lot of potential beyond having it just sitting there in a firepit for one season. Maybe have it's effects be applied to things that help us keep us warm during winter, the only two that come to mind at the moment are the Torch and the Furnace. Endothermic Torch is pretty self explanatory, it'd be made of minerals rather than twigs and grass, maybe some combination of flint or rocks and Nitre. As for the furnace, maybe instead of the Charcoal and Red Gems used it could be made with Nitre and Blue Gems. Maybe like the Watering Can and Ice Flingomatic the cooling effect of the Cold fire currently in-game could apply to withering plants in proximity to it while fueled, the same would apply for the Polar Light from the Moon Caller's Staff. Cold Fire itself could have some effects that regular fire has such as making the enemy panic when set alight but instead of dealing fire damage it could build up frost in them similar to an ice staff, and maybe if set alight long enough it would freeze them for a short amount of time similar to what Klaus does to you with his Ice Deer. Closing Thoughts: Finally at the end now, I'm sure there's more I missed in terms of possibilities, these are just somethings that've been floating around my head as of late. There are some more but they're sort of redundant since other items exist that would make them somewhat pointless or are a bit too "out there". (Harvesting the "rocks" around the Magma Pools, a unique attack and drop with Dragonfly during Winter's Feast like Deerclops, giving a Blue or Red Gem to Antlion, Salt Balloons/Bombs, Sulfuric Experiment additional effects etc...) I'd really like to know what you guys think about Summer/Fire overall, any ideas and possible improvements and all that. I'm crossing my fingers that something is done with Summer to make living through it enjoyable, and if we do get a Summer Rework at some point I hope that it adds in a Fire Rework as well (since Summer and Fire go hand in hand after all).
  2. Is there any way to make a Mod that will disable the extreme color filter? Everything is so yellow/red in summer and then so blue/greenish in winter. I can not stand it because my character has blue skin and in summer it looks yellow. I have searched the forums and google relentlessly, and only found maybe one or two topics that mention it.. but no answers. I just want to be able to disable the colors all together if possible. I want my character to look more like she does in Spriter. The very few topics I have found that mention this: this person wanted the same thing it seems, they never got any answers sadly =( http://forums.kleientertainment.com/topic/14338-changing-the-overall-color-palette/ This thread mentions it a bit http://forums.kleientertainment.com/topic/52162-lightsetcolour/
  3. So I heard the Most Beloved Mime in the History of Gaming (I dare you to name a more beloved mime in games O__O) made a comeback so I had to test him out... and what better stage than an Endless Server (500+) in Summer!! I heard his Pin Wheel can cool you down... but you have to run to get a breeze... So when I entered the world: I immediately assumed resources would be scarce... there's an abundance of skeletons which is nice... but then I can't "read" what happened to them because "silent mime" which was... well he is a mime so let's leave it at that... I then went tree hopping and managed to find the razed pig village... What perplexed me most is not the razed houses... but this pig, who exited the now burned down house (bug?) Also, as a ghost, I'm able to blow balloons, I don't know if it is intended or not but it was amusing nonetheless... (<--- I didn't know it could be written as one word) I died because I couldn't find any twigs let alone any saplings still in pristine condition in the summer heat... so didn't get to test out the Pin Wheel... (P.S. I don't know where to post this... in the bug reports or tales of life and death... so I split the difference and posted it here in the General Discussion section... sorry if I got it wrong again) O__O
  4. It's a simple poll. Which do you think is harder to survive, winter or summer? Personally, I think that winter is harder to survive, because the things that you require to survive winter are much harder to acquire than those for summer. So, what do you think?
  5. Currently, I feel there is not enough incentive for use of the scalemail. Its durability is 1800 units of damage, consequently allowing for extended periods of use. However, it is ultimately outperformed by the log suit, providing 80% resistance to physical damage as opposed to 70%. Additionally, when at low durability the log suit can be disposed of by burning it, serving as excellent fuel. This means that, instead of having two slots taken by a piece of armor about to break and its replacement, you can consistently maintain high durability alongside periodic fuel for fires. Scalemail, unfortunately, is comparatively more expensive to craft (and has an inconsistent availability) but absorbs less damage. Another perk of scalemail is its fire resistance. This is rarely useful, as prolonged exposure to fire seldom happens. On the other hand, its ability to ignite attackers often requires remaining aware of resources/structures in the immediate area, which the fire could spread to as well. Overall, it's almost as if the scalemail was designed for future confrontations against the dragonfly, in a continuous cycle of killing and crafting. This is reminiscent of the lantern/miner's hat, bound to use in the caves because of light bulbs and their fast spoilage times. Without a variety of applications it ends up becoming a boring mechanic, seen as more a routine rather than an actual game that's dependent on player input. Perhaps there is a way to incentivize use of the scalemail more than now (e.g. synergy with fire-based weaponry).
  6. No real incentive to play summer? Well here is a potential solution; a summer exclusive feature that actually makes sense and is easy to build any new content into. For instance if people want a summer version of the Walrus Hunting Party then this lake could perhaps dry up and expose a dry, cracked riverbed inhabiting scorpions, snakes or perhaps even destructible termites mounds. - Tons of potential. The lake could then fill up again when it rains in the Autumn and will be dormant until the next summer. I'm not sure how the transition between lake and no lake would look and how the creatures can spawn without just blinking into existence, but it's an idea. Note-able comments:
  7. So, I REALLY love koalefants, as you can see, and I decided to make a fanfic.Enjoy! The summer koalefant walked over to the beefalo herd, occasionally talking to some teen beefalos. He then heard his stomach growl, and slowly trudged away from the group. He walked into a forest, smelling the sweet smell of fresh honey. He walked over to a berry bush, and began to eat its fruit. It was beginning to turn to nighttime. The koalefant looked up. He walked back to the savannah, and laid down. The summer koalefant enjoyed yet another peaceful rest.Chapter 2 The koalefant woke up. He looked around at his surroundings, and saw a tallbird that he hadn't seen before. He trudged over to it, and the tallbird stared at the koalefant. Then the koalefant got bored, and walked off. The koalefant saw a human running in circles, weaving and dodging things that were invisble. The koalefant tilted its head, and walked over to the human. The human took out a razor, and charged at a beefalo herd. Next thing he knew, the koalefant had a net placed over him.This will be updated.
