Hello one and all, We would like to officially announce Islands Adventures, a Shipwrecked port for Don't Starve Together. Over the past couple of months we have been working on a port for Shipwrecked in Don't Starve Together. When we got world generation working similar to how Shipwrecked worked, we asked @Fidooop to post some teasers on the forums, you can find that thread here. As the mod progressed we added additional teasers, trying to keep everyone up to date on the happenings behind the scenes. Now that we've progressed this far, on Wednesday Dec. 21, 2016; we made the post about giving information about alpha testing for the mod; that is if the research we were completing worked. After two (2) grueling days of labor, we've finally finished the research and I present to you the final result of that research. You can no longer walk on water and you can no longer sail on land. We've added sand to the out skirts of islands along with a thin line of shallow water, before moving into deeper water. We are still experimenting with this layout. We still have several bugs to work out, the major one is being controller support. Currently there is no valid way to Disembark while using a controller. We plan to fix this in the coming days, however, this will take some time to get configured properly as it will be using a completely different method than the mouse. Alpha Testing Information We are women and men of our word and we present to you the eager play testers with some information about alpha testing. The first round of alpha testing will be limited strictly to a server we host. While many modders are eager to get their mod out there; we decided that we would be able to have more control over the feedback and bugs if we were able to see the logs directly without relying on 3rd party methods (e.g. forums, steam, etc.). There will be a six (6) person limit on the amount of players on the server; we will be using the console to communicate via announcements rather than being in the game itself. This is to allow all six (6) spots to be used by play testers. There will only be a single boat; it will be located in the Nautical tab costing a measly 5 sanity. There will be no caves added to the server, for testing purposes. We do not have a concrete amount of water biomes which will be in the first round of alpha testing. We're planning to add more water prefabs and biomes soon to allow our coders to take a break from world generation and boat building. The mod will be broken into several separate mods. This is mainly due to us setting up a framework mod and several API mods for easier use of certain things in the game. World Generation code will not be made public during the first round of alpha testing. This is non-negotiable. It's very much still a work in progress and we would hate for someone to take the code and start spamming the workshop with mods when the code is not even finished. We still have many more world generation related items to add and if the code gets out we'll be unable to add them without conflicts of interests with other mods. We do not currently have an estimated date for alpha testing. Once we do have a confirmed date,it will be a weekend [Friday-Sunday], we will be sure to give everyone a two (2) week notice to prepare. If you have any questions pertaining to the mod, please post in this topic. All future communication based on this mod will be made here, so we are in one consistent location.
