Dev Blog 2nd March - Moth Friends

Discussion in 'Dev Blog' started by mollygos, Mar 2, 2016.

  1. Original Post


    We've recently added a bunch of interesting crafting recipes, like these Moth Traps. If you lure moths into your Moth Trap, they will become your best friend and produce lots and lots of silk for you. Use moth silk to make clothing and armor! Moth friends are the best!

    Quite a lot of new stuff being added! I feel like 1.0 is going to be a totally different game, at this rate. :D

    This makes me wonder if beekeeping will become a thing. I've always thought that the bugs you can catch like butter bees and xeno flies could serve some kind of purpose other than stuffing the little buggers into a jar.

    Nah. Fabric can still be crafted at a spinning wheel. In fact, you actually need fabric to craft bandages now.

    How does one attract moths? Are these objects like farmables in that they "grow" and "change" over time to a harvestable state?

    So cool!!!! I was wondering what purpose bugs where going to serve. Also off topic and out of curiosity will the Rust and Crystalline mini biomes be getting removed?

    See, this is why I love Starbound. I just love seeing these clever little additions being made with such variety and creativity. Gnome guns that shoot rainbows, penguins inside UFOs, the whole lot. They're interesting, they're strange and they're useful!

    Yea chucklefishies, thats more like it, keep expanding more stuff like this, especially in the higher tiers and even make high tech versions of your starter wooden craft.

    Speaking of which, do we by chance have any plants or crops that can be used to make something other than food, besides cotton

    Maybe something for like cures, buffs, or even poisons perhaps made from toxictop plants, something like that.

    But anyway, good idea, good work, bring more items and implimentations like this. Like catching fireflies to make firefly lamps, chicken coops for chickens and eggs, a beehome for bees and honey.

    Or perhaps craftable items like fertilizer from poo/sewage and mud, helps crops grow faster, or flora lights to help plants grow when not exposed to sunlight. And and and........

    (Hour long trek of thoughts, ideas, and basically gibberish...)

    Does this mean we will get more clothing recipies to go with the silk, or is it a replacement for fabric only?

    Yes, we need a mothman outfit that comes with the glow and glide effects and a pet moth too, this is a must! :rofl:
