Recent posts in other threads (particularly the ones about moving blinking floating heads & rain slowing people’s PC’s down) have got me to thinking about Hardware Limitation and the FUTURE of DST. People playing on much older PC’s struggle to run the game as intended (to the point some even have to completely disable caves content) others.. have to install mods (less particles on rain effects.) Now Personally: The way I feel about it is the people playing on that outdated hardware need to get better rigs. (This isn’t an insult thrown at Anyone.. I’m using this as my key concern.) The fact is: People playing on PC CAN DO THAT.. they can for example: Go out and buy a new graphics or performance card and shove it over in their PC to play the game the way it’s intended.. But what about people on CONSOLES? PS4 and Xbox One- We already have our world Gen settings limited to Default or Less.. we don’t have all the fancy More or Lots More settings PC has.. So eventually there will come a point in DSTs life-cycle to where the content Klei adds to the game will start causing us to have performance issues. But UNLIKE PC Players: We can’t just go buy a new card and slap it over in our consoles, we have to go buy a whole new console- which most likely includes having to buy new controllers/accessories to go with it. So my questions my concerns: How Will Klei handle the FUTURE of the game (something I was hoping the 2021 roadmap would cover but I was unfortunately left in the dark) What happens when the game can no longer have content added to it on our lower end hardware without causing performance issues? Does Klei just stop doing updates at all at this point and even though better hardware can support more they have to be bound to limits of the older hardware? Do they discontinue support for the last Gen versions of the game and focus only on the New Consoles PS5 & Xbox Series X? (like how GTA V did 360<Xbox One & now soon Series X>Xbox One) How do they go about handling that? Do they rerelease a new version of the game I’ll have to buy again? Do I get that as a free upgrade? Do we stay stuck on last Gen hardware (and thus bound to that last Gen hardwares limitations) of not being able to have presets above just default or less? Do We reach a point where content updates can no longer happen because it can’t run on the old consoles? Is the reason the ocean content feels vast & empty and void of anything much of interest because that would slow older hardware down to a Crawl?? These are serious concerns I have over the future of DST and Klei’s update schedule When do we reach the point of Old Hardware being too outdated to get further support? And Where do we go from There?

Firstly, hi to the Don't Starve community and devs! I'm a newbie but brimming with creative ideas (mostly thought up whilst in the shower, perhaps disturbingly) so wanted to share this and hopefully get a good response 1) Hardware cursor I noticed while playing that there was one thing a little out of place, the cursor. Now this seems trivial but it would be really cool to have a cursor which fits the rest of the game style a lot better. Something simple would suffice, but a context-sensitive cursor would be even better - by that I mean one which changes depending on whether you're hovering over an aggressive enemy (attack cursor) or something you can gather (gathering cursor) etc. etc. you get the point! 2) Hat abilities! Considering how the game is supposed to be about a mad scientist being thrown into a wilderness survival environment, I was actually surprised to find that there weren't really that many "crazy inventions" or gadgets to be able to build later on in the game. Perks as the player progresses for example, by that I mean things like minor speed boots or gathering speed increase etc. and I ended up thinking that it would be a great place to do this on the hats, as some of them already do provide a perk of some kind (i.e. protection from the Football hat). My ideas are as follows: Straw hat - Considering this is made from gathering cut grass and is available early on in the game, this hat could provide a perk when worn such as a slight increase in gathering speed for grass/twigs/berries. Not a lot, but enough to be noticeable and allow you to bring back just that bit extra when you go on a days' foraging trip. Beefalo hat - This hat could allow you to get double the amount of manure from each manure pile, therefore cutting down your time needed to gather fertiliser. Another fun side effect could be that it makes your beard grow a little faster (due to all the hair gone into making it!) which would allow those playing the main char to create a Meat Effigy a day or two faster than normal if wearing this hat all the time. Feather hat - As you have to trap a lot of birds for this to get their feathers, I though it would be pretty cool to have this hat provide you a VERY minor movement speed increase. BUT, allow that speed increase to mean you can run up to and kill birds before they fly off - therefore negating the need to continue trapping them to get further feathers once you get to a stage of making this hat. This would remove some grindyness when getting future feathers once you've performed this the first time in each game. As you can see these hat perks give a number of very miniscule advantages. There are others of course but I can't think of any decent ideas for those right now but they would be along similar lines, such as the mining helmet not only lights your way but provides more stone and a higher chance of gold from each rock. Perhaps the cost of each hat would need to be increased along with this, but that would be acceptable. Working hard for good rewards makes a fun game The great thing about this is, you can only wear ONE hat at a time! So, there is a very distinct player choice as to which hat to use and when. E.g. do I take my straw hat to go foraging for the day, but should I also take another hat or two decreasing my inventory space just in case I meet some enemies or find a quarry on the way? I think the hats have a huge potential for some tiny perks and more could be added in future very easily to add further player choice into the game. The general premise should be, you work hard to get these hats in the first instance, but then once you have it, it makes your life a little bit easier in whatever field it is related. Cheers guys, hope to see some valuable feedback on these ideas Van.
