  1. LadyBug for the win!!! They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Yep. Those were great shots! Now you can go zipline crazy and still have web to spare. Great story. Have fun!
  2. Bless you.....three! All in one place! Now there's a nightmare I hope to never encounter. Though I have been attacked by orb weavers five at one time. Not sure how they all appeared at once. Just strolling along, bumped into one spider all by his lonesome, then zap.......one turned into three and then two more joined in the game. Of course, this was along the pond side of the wooden posts. And we all know about "Spider Alley" on the other side, but how they all appeared on the pond side....? I was too deep in spider parts, goo and legs to see clearly anyway. Then just as I was finished with
  3. Yes....first person view is awful in the haze. Not only fogged over, but the dizzy special effects...wavy spirals and floating flecks of debris.... makes it so hard to focus that I'm easily lost and quickly nauseated. Very immersive. Extremely effective. But, not pleasant. Feeling a little sick. Claustrophobic. I don't need a health bar in real life to take the hint. "Get me outta here!" Should a gas mask make the visuals less daunting? I would suggest, at the very least, reduce the wavy psychedelic yellow queasiness. Foggy....sure. It is the Haze, after all. But many of us get dizzy j
  4. I agree wholeheartedly......Mosquitos will target you through solid walls, destroy anything that stands between you and them, and chase you across half the yard before turning back. They also attack in packs of three, if you are not careful. Way too overpowered, in my opinion. Especially if you are playing on mild/single player mode. Some players love the near-death-experience, the challenge and thrill of battle. Don't want to spoil their fun. Glad they have that option. But it would be nice for a more thoughtful, balanced approach to the game when playing on Mild. Or better yet, implem
  5. I Absolutely agree. Some situations can intensify unexpectedly and you may need every arrow in your pack to survive. Running out in the middle of the battle and having to switch......well, there must be a better way. The wheel meu is helpful. And I am glad they included that option. But going from normal thorn arrows to feathered automatically would be helpful. Or if you have selected feathered first, then auto equip thorn arrows when the other has been depleted. Perhaps choosing only the specialty arrows manually. Just a thought.
  6. Single player/PC/Mild Observation: Difficulty level "mild" is no longer a feasible option for players who wish to enjoy all the challenges of Grounded, but with less dying and all around screaming and running and endless repeating battles that are so annoying that you find yourself gritting your teeth and muttering some very (unladylike) comments under your breath while wondering "why...why...I just murdered the lot of you a day ago!" Or "You never re-spawned here before!" Or "Five? Five spiders all at once!" Or "how is this even possible?!" as you're unexpectedly flung from one s
  7. Update: FOR SCIENCE! (AND for the rest of us still searching for feathers.) Week one: -slow realization that feathers were no longer dropping at their usually delivery areas -beginning to consciously search for them where and when the crow landed -looking in other areas (reported sightings from helpful player feedback. (Thank you.) Results: one feather (on the ground a bit further away from the birdbath than usual) Hmmm.....so they do still exist. Week two: -settled in near the birdbath
  8. Thanks everyone......I'll keep searching and let you know if I find any. Every time that crow lands somewhere, I go charging across the yard and look....But nothing so far. Pleading with an animated feathered critter is so undignified. "Drop one......just one.....please......pretty please. De spawning the feathers? Reducing the drop rate? Ah.....guess I'll save my arrows, put up my bow and call it a day. No sense running around searching the entire yard for only one feather at a time. Think I'll just chill out by the lily pad and down a smoothie. Not to panic. Obsidian will f
  9. I haven't seen even one since the update. They use to appear across the pond and two usually came near my base by the birdbath, high up on the stone wall. Now....not a single one. I'll try some of the places mentioned here and see if I can locate them. Crow feathers have also disappeared form their usual places as well. Obsidian is so great at solving most of the glitches when we bring them to their attention. Hope they patch this soon.....I'm running out of arrows and would like to make a few other hanging lights for my base.
  10. Forgot an item.......Clover Roof Top (squares and triangles ). The grass floors just don't look as nice. They work.....but not with a flare. Just a thought.
  11. Single player/ PC/Mild Haven't started a new game for a while now, so it's hard to say what changes the Obsidian team have incorporated into the re-spawn mechanics this time around. Remember always finding gnats at dawn and dusk hovering over pools of water near the ground. Some would show up for breakfast and dinner, without fail, every day. Water, however, was always a problem......until you make a dew catcher. Spent most of my day searching for gleaming dewdrops at the very, tippy top of the tallest blade of grass in fields of grass and clover. Ah.....those wer
  12. Has anyone seen any crow feathers since the new update? I've been playing all week and not a single feather to be found. I did the rounds two or three times, but still no luck. Have they moved to other locations? Or are they reorganizing the spawn level/system and haven't finished the process yet? Running low on arrows and want to build another bed. Thanks for anyone's help. Have.....fun.
  13. Some simple, but necessary things like: - a hook and line for retrieving weed and grass stems back to shore when you just didn't quite make that fancy jumping maneuver or you forgot that weed stems bounce like rubber balls when they sail down the zip line and land on a very flat, spacious rock, but still manage to land in the pond anyway. (Even evading the two story towered wall that was built as an all-purpose catcher mitt near the edge. Sigh.) -a couch.....a plump, purple couch to match the chair with the glorious option of being able to actually sit on it and enjo
  14. Yes, please: a web, an acorn, a thorn, and a junk box. Also, signs that have a post so you can place them not on the ground, but upright while traveling and use all those directional arrows just sitting there in menu and not being used. Great idea!
  15. Yes.....I agree. Personally, I don't mind an occasional combat situation or pitting my wits against the Big Bad Wolf Spider. Or defensive building. Or even trying to figure out a creative work-around when a new update suddenly plops down three mosquitos in my already critter infested backyard. (Three spiders, two bombers.....they have almost become pets. Throw down a lure to keep them happy, a few spike traps to keep the lure happy and keep everyone away from the back door. Cool. What's not to love.) Until the traps fall apart, three mosquitos hover over the pool, and the lur
  16. No......absolutely and without reservation.....No!!!! Not even ONE.... nonaggressive/nonpoisonous/slithering neighbor. NO.....no legs, no go. Try lizards, roaches, praying mantis, or (SHUDDER) Frogs on the lily pads swallowing children in one gulp and destroying their four story, lily pad mansion in one hop is worlds above better than even one terrorizing, slithering (quadruple SHUDDER) snake in the grass. DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT......Obsidian. Please, please, please....NO SNAKES. DISCLAIMER: ah.....about those frogs.....Forget I even mentioned them. That was a 'N
  17. Great suggestions. Would love to see an option for riding a lady bug as well, with a designated route mapped out along the trench like paths already in place in the game. Hopped on one the other day and it was amazingly fun to just mosey along without a care in the world, but we just went around in circles. Also, if wearing a suit of ladybug armor while riding, she will consider the player as a friend and will defend against all enemies that attack you. (Though, I would love another way to get ladybug parts without having to kill one. They are just too cute to kill. )
  18. PC/single player, on mild: Note to self: Ditto! Loss several axes that way. Don't know why my finger keeps hitting that key, but....yeah. It's a thing. - Also, the floating bone. What... the Acorn is that all about? - The traps are another glitch. Just repaired the lure and spike traps, everything in the green, but the flashing red icons remain unless you save and reload. (PC player here:) - Food and drink icon in inventory: same here. -The diving bell spider parts show up in chest and inventory a
  19. Single player, pc: I have really, really tried to work with the new updated changes to the traps in game. (Always ready to find the positive if I can.) And this time, I was grateful for a chance to use my new (and now fully operational) repair tool on something worthwhile.....the defense of the treehouse! Save the traps! Three days, two deaths and 5 repair tools later.....I waved a white flag, demolished the traps for scrap and put up a for sale sign. (Sigh) You are right. This change is overpowered chaos. And not even realistic. How can a soft bellied fuzz ball
  20. PS: Still would prefer to send an entire stack down the zip line instead of one plank/stem at a time. And a new animation. Perhaps bundled with rope and hanging on the handles. Could require rope in your inventory to bundle and send. "Zip" could change to "zip stack" if all the requirements are met. Just a suggestion. It would look amazing, follow a certain amount of required logic, and still be convenient.
  21. Very good idea. Adding new icons would be great as well. Not only for the zip lines, but for more items as well. A web, acorn, etc.
  22. Ah......that is apparently a thing. Never knew. Strange animation though; floating on top without any connection to the line. (Not that carrying a whole stack without even holding on was a great visual either---But it worked. It was quick, intuitive and fun). Still, this works as well, so......I'm gratefully relieved. Thanks for the tip, TinyMalemort! I really appreciate the help. Now....if I can find a way to make a mosquito repellant, maybe.......just maybe...... I'll be able to survive this update with a little bit more enthusiasm.
  23. Well, the new update added fun flying critters, but canceled another useful feature as well. Each update we seem to loose something along with all the other great content. First it was the repair hammer that no longer works; then the mint mallet that can no longer crack a simple acorn; now the zip line can no longer be used to transport grass or weed stems. Who thought this was a necessary improvement? Now all my zip lines are useless. Building and transporting materials will be more time consuming than fun. And I still can't use the repair tool. Please, please......pleas
  24. A wish for more "useable" furniture......great idea! I would love to see more furniture as well. Like a berry Leather Couch to go with the chair. (Too comfy to look at without the luxury to sit down and take a rest. ) A lamp to set on the round clover table. More side tables, dressers, and stackable containers....etc. Just a few more wishes to add on.
  25. Glad someone else noticed this as well. (Single Player, PC) I usually use the foundation block to fill in cracks between paving stones and to even out terrain where I'm building. Worked fine until pond update. Hope they find a solution soon.
