I honestly think a large part of the problem was the fact that the island I was on was super tiny. But the strangest part was this wasn’t a build up over several days. It happened in less than 24 in game hours.
Basically, my base was above the cave on the island, which was in the middle of the island. The ocean was about equal-distant on the north and south side of the cave. I was about halfway to the ocean on the northside, the mob of monsters was between the ocean and halfway to the cave on the south side.
Day before monster rush, I was hacking trees apart with my bare hands (cause I needed bark and sticks, not logs) down by the ocean at the south end (cause I use the trees at the north end as a maze to hide my base. night fell, I went back towards my base and cut down some excess trees there till it was day. I then went to the cave, and went back and forth a couple of times between my base and the cave during the day (to empty my inventory).
Then night started to fall on one of my trips back to my base, and I noticed a rabbit. So I went after it (south from the cave) and BAM, monster central! They were EVERYWHERE! just swarming the beaches…it was so hectic that many of the hostile monsters weren’t able to beeline for me, because of all the stuff in the way (which is probably the only reason I survived, lol).
But yeah, It was about 24 in game hours between normal amount of monsters and -BAM- TONS of monsters.
I will admit, when it was all cleaned up, I felt pretty BA. It was a lot of fun! hehe
Sea base! YES! I dig a sea base!
VERY cool! 😀 Thanks again for your help! 😀
I wasn’t hiding or anything. And I hadn’t been on the map for too long. A decent time, but not forever. And finally, after exploring more and discovering more islands outside of the one I started on that play-thru, I would say that the original island I started on was TINY. So I am guessing that probably had something to do with it. But yeah, It was crazy. I was used to fighting pretty frequently the whole time I was playing, but it just got quite insane there for a bit. After I finially cleared out the baddies, while looking around, I found that there was just as many “peaceful” mobs (rabbits and chickens). There were probably about 10 or 12 total between the two of them. I finished cleaning it all up before nightfall again (just barely) and I haven’t had that serious of a monster infestation since, but I did high tail it to a different island. So we’ll see what it’s like when I go back to the original one. lol
Also, thanks super much for the bow tutorial. I always kinda thought maybe that’s how it was done, but I didn’t want to test it out and then be 1 square closer to a scary monster! lol
One suggestion I have is that it would be nice if instead of taking all the items out of a chest when you interact with it, you opened up a second “chest inventory” and could pick and choose what you take out. Sharpened Rocks are in very short supply for me this game (at the moment, see my other post) and making lots of chests (so I can sort the stuff in them) is a little challenging (not to mention that my memory is terrible and I’d have no way of remembering what was in what chest lol).
Just a little UI tweak that would greatly improve QoL.
EDIT: OOOHH!!! And maybe a button we could click to sort our inventory alphabetically or something (mostly sort it so all items that are indentical are next to each other).
