To become an expert player who can do things efficiently, you have to go through the stages of doing things wrong and inefficiently. Some of us know there are other ways to do that then just playing the game, but in-game is the most in the spirit of the game. Settlements die all the time, but the thing that will help them live longer in the big picture is helping all those enthusiastic new players level up.

Even with OneTech, my first time trying to build an engine wasnt successfull. How else are people supposed to learn? Is everyone just supposed to wait for a Veteran to be born in town?

With this in place, can you please just ban the organized griefers that ruin the game as a group and get a big advantage because of this update?

Why dont you try cause havoc in a game where people have the means to fight back? Too hard? oh..

was the curse text purple?

But are you sure sure?  Test it out on yourself.  The worst case scenario is that you won't be able to play with yourself for 30 days...

I was a middle aged man and wanted to make pork taccos for the first time. While preparing i found a little boy that was left behind by his mom, so I adopted him and we helped each other out. When I later came back to the town by pure luck, i found he had built me a little monument

This was some time ago, before sugar canes and all that, where we had one gigant city that just kept on for days on end

Why not just chisel and arrow into a stone. Why so complicated?

Not looking forward to this, in addition to everything else. Will likely take a break for a while until refinements are done.

The less people play the longer it will take to work out all the bad things

Will this include basic stuff, like rocks, the stuff under pine trees, bananas,or just the specialty, so: oil, rubber stuff, dye rocks in desert, etc?

The first option sounds horrible, the second one sounds nice

#11 Re: Main Forum » Wallshelfs the best thing we didn't know we needed » 2019-11-11 19:36:31

What if the rope doesnt get "used" when making the walls, or only has a 10% chance to get used, and to compensate for it it takes up a tool slot?
Or make it into something similar to needle&thread that has multiple uses

#12 Re: Main Forum » Coming soon: Character skills (tools) » 2019-10-25 10:52:02

How about a tooltip telling you how many family members already know the tool youre hovering over? That way you could save up on slots

the arc went 8 days

on day 5-6 there was a town on the middle north

i built a new town next to it, starting with a new pen, then cutting trees, boards, berry farm, carrots, wheat, oven
during that 2 lives no one came over to help and they were wondering why i don't stay in their city (i was the original pseudo eve there)
the end of my second life people were murdered by horsemen and i let a black girl in who had 5-6 kids very fast

the next day i spawned back there, people moved over all the stuff from the other town and expanded this area, it had two oil spots north and was the most influential city at the last 2 days of the arc

People were complaining on the iron. I knew the locations of all 9 cities, and i born SW, so i managed to grab all iron in 5-6 cities, made new engine, then i grabbed the rubber belt made in NE city, made the timing belt there also had the pulleys on shaft, combined it and made a new engine using most swords we had to convert them into pipes. People didn't really understood why the hurry, also some idiot baby cried for 30 minutes because i took her décor sword, had to kill her in the end as she was an annoying prick, she got other sword and tried to stab me with it, we were in peace. I stab her with knife and no one bothered.

Ended up getting around 200 iron, i met Lava in NE city next day and she already made chisels so we ran 4 times to my engine and used up all the chisels she made and i gathered, around 12 that life, taking all the iron back to the 2 cities there. My engine was made of scrapped tools and knives, swords and broken tools.

I had a few weird and interesting lives when we could map out cities from stdout.txt, was like a bell run without a bell, generally me running with a girl to other city, but sometimes 5-6 people following me, was right before the language update so some lives were quite weird.
Finding a city 200-300 tiles away lend me to mix their population and start roads between them, and taking a girl from a busy city to revive a dead one. Mapping out the whole server before i reached age 3. Whatever made the Hetuw map based on that exploit, i explained how can he make it work. I had exact coordinates to cities  (sometimes to dead rabbit hunters). Those lives were awesome, finding 3-4 cities around us.

Whats annoying about this?

More than forced cooperation I would rather have more than a few seconds of food in my belly.

It's crazy how often you need to top up on food in this game. I would very much appreciate a tripling of our food pips just so we have time to talk and interact instead of having to run towards food after exchanging a couple sentences.

1. Keep hunger depletion rate but Increase pip capacity (3x? 5x?)
2. Each step on the water tech tree should last you a couple generations at least. It's crazy that we have to start planning tools for buckets during eve runs. Give us time to breathe! No time to talk if everything needs to be rushed.

Isnt that what yum is for?

Jason please extend the time or give us a tool to extend it.
Maybe not the early Horses have to be like proper city horses of London but somewhere in tech tree, they have to become like this.

-Horseshoes maybe?

Or they become calm for a few minutes if you feed them a carrot, so they take 20 seconds to run away instead of 7

I guess the clothes might be a problem to stack because of the decay timer, but the rest should definetly stack

While i'd like the option to play without the rift every now and then, splitting up the already small playerbase will kill the game

#20 Re: Main Forum » So Many Bone Piles » 2019-09-17 18:08:37

Probably just temporary until he has that issue fixed i'd imagine

#21 Re: Main Forum » first and last post » 2019-09-14 13:04:56

All the lives in the rift recently have been without war, and also with plenty of food. Maybe i just got lucky?
I mean it WAS hell with the warsword eve and all, but alot has been fixed

#22 Re: Main Forum » Starting » 2019-08-31 20:18:13

Most important thing for you as a new player:

If you find someone that teaches you how to do stuff


So many times i was teaching players and they starved halfway through the process

I playedd a lot in the 2 "rift be gone" acation weeks, build almost all of a 5700 tile long road network.
I played exactly null minutes since the rift came back. no need to bother with that nonsense.
gonna be salty on the forum first.

the psychological argument is ridiculous nonsense.

the resource limitaztion just instantly degenerates intop torture porn, where half of all emergend gameplay is completely removed for no good reason.

Isnt it griefers like you that turned the Rift into the hellhole it was in the first place

#24 Re: Main Forum » The Fruit of Eden » 2019-08-29 15:38:23

Im strongly against sacrificing babies. It would suck for the player being born and then dying. It should only be people that are old enough to defend themselfes

It's a super cool idea. It would 100% cause the Tarr monument to be protected and fought over, which is maybe what he wants? Something for us to want enough to actually war over.

The biggest thing would be who gets to eat it? I think the best situation for it would be the last female turning 40. Even if gave them an extra year for a chance for a girl that'd be huge.

For what to sacrifice I'd say an Endstone. A life for a longer life. They're very finite and rare within the rift aswell so using one would be a sacrifice

Should make it so that the person sacrificed cant be a baby to stop people from doing that.
Love this idea
