Thermal stones and sewing kits?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone else find it weird that you can repair thermal stones with a sewing kit? Like how do you sew a rock back together? It makes no sense! :wilsondisagreeable:

On a related note, why can't you use the sewing kit on a beekeeper hat? That seems like it would make more sense than a rock.

Yeah I guess that makes sense. Still doesn't explain the thermal stone though. I mean a thermal stone isn't clothing.

There's a lot of things in this game that don't make sense. It's easier to not question it and just accept it.

I didn't know you could do this.

My guess would be becasue the stone is classed as clothing in the code or something like that.

I imagine it was to combat with the flint and rock issue before the game had caves that renewed flint and rock naturally. Back then I don't remember meteor showers dropping as many rocks and flint.

In a world where pigs walk on two legs and live in houses that could only fit them standind still the whole time, ewes perform karate kicks and there is a man who run faster right after having his dinner, yes why not.

I didn't even know that was a thing and I also didn't know that on solo Don't Starve the thermal stones don't have durability.

My logic with it is that as the thermal stone wears down the stone is cracking, and to "repair" it you're actually just tying string around it to prevent it from completely falling apart.

I'm quite surprised Klei never made a drawing of Wilson sewing a rock like the one they did when they fixed the sewing sandcastles bug.

I always thought you couldn't sew the beekeeper hat because it had rope in it. Because, who sews together rope, you know? You can't sew a tent either after all.. But you can sew a hybernation vest, because there's valuable items in the recipe.. Or something. No sense was made on this day.

The heatrock prefab is missing:

inst.components.fueled.no_sewing = true

(Sewing and fueled components are tied, and it seems Klei wanted them to not be but that's not the case yet.)

Sewing repairs fueled component with FUELTYPE.USAGE, and the beekeeper hat has armor for its component and no fueled.

I've often wondered about a lot of the sewing logic.  Like, why can you sew an umbrella but not a football helmet, which is not only made from the same pigskin but has _visible stiches_!  Logsuit no, but why not a grass suit?  I get that for some reason armour is exempt, but me, I would've gone on a case-by-case basis based off of what it's made out of, myself...

And yes, in the solo game the thermal stone HAS no durability!  As soon as I saw how it worked in Together, I immediately grabbed a mod to undo that nonsense.  Because--as with Willow's original form, if you "grew up with" singleplayer, the Together change is kind of a shock!

(And yes, nowadays I know that the Together thermal stone also never goes to a _harmful_ temperature over time, thereby making the unbreakable version of THAT a bit overpowered as compared to the original. If I found a mod that just COMPLETELY turned it back to the singleplayer version, including going glowing orange and hurting you in the summer, I'd totally take that.   All ya have to do, after all, is put it away from you for a few seconds while it cools down next to your endo fire.  Or reverse for winter.  (shrug)  If it gets eaten by the occasional moleworm, well, that's a form of "breakage" I'm already used to!  : P)

I always found that it was a pain that thermal stones were losing durability in DST. Sewing those is greatly welcome, even if it doesn't make sens. I find silk easier to harvest than stones...        (Wendy & Abi main   :3)
