    Please have Discord audio on the stream so we can hear everyone at the same time. Last time I had to stick to a single stream and watch the rest later to hear any additional info that was only revealed on those streams.

    I've only recently noticed that there are no cosmetic gloves in the game (as in, ones that only provide heat/cold resist), only gloves that count as armor (and plant fiber gloves)... O.o :P

You can get auto turrets to destroy the screamers, and I've been known to have off site forging facilities. Like you might as well put one in your mine and crank it up when you leave, its so far away the chunk wont load and zeds will never attack it. You come back to mine, you grab your 4000 forged iron on the way out and restock the forge.

    Glad to see you guys worked out that (chunk not loading and therefore no work being done) problem.

Doesn't have to be kid, but there really I see no problem with something strain ish. We want them popping out of the painting holes and heat ducts.
    I could see that in a late stage game. That would put a new fear in the game.

    This is on par with charging $199 for some product because it is believed that people won't see this as two hundred dollars. Seen this my whole life and cannot believe that enough people are still fooled by this that they continue this nonsense everywhere you go.
    I hate that trick and it does not work on me since I round up and when I tell someone what it costs, they get the rounded up version.

    It's a reliable, shady trick that fools the human mind. (Boy are we gullible.) It's like the, "Buy one for the price of two and get a second one FREE!" deal. That happened where I lived, and many people fell for it.

    While it's frowned upon by customers, no one else (other than customers) care, so as long as money exists, so will that tactic. :/

    First I'll preface this with I know bandits are not on this build...but when they come.

    I think it would be great if they spawned around your heat map and started to sabotage your base and defenses. Starting at lower levels with something like chopping a lane through your spikes escalating to things like (but not restricted to) planting C4, taking out turrets with rocket launchers and the like.

    I think it would make building fun.

    There needs to be a shift. People need to start seeing things for what they really are. Every time I see x.99, it's telling me that the company/person presenting their product for purchase assumes that I am a dumb-ass while at the same time exposing their character as one that resorts to such lowly, despicable practices. Basically, they are willing to do every little thing to squeeze out every penny they can. It should be frowned upon.

    It's just dumb. I still can't believe anybody really falls for it. It's like if someone played the same prank on you over an over again. Eventually you would stop trying to open that can of peanut brittle. No, don't do it... it's a snake.... but... maybe not this one time.

    Unless you can think of a plan, have the support, the funding, a backing, and had most of the populous wanting to change the world for the greater good, I don't see any kind of shift happening. (I'm not a pessimist, but a realist.) You would basically have an equal chance of convincing everyone that paper money is useless.

    Most of us are forced into the system, or too ignorant to recognize it. Glad to see you're part of the former.

    Besides, for every person that complains about these business practices, all of them hand their wallet over anyway.

    Besides, we've got much bigger things to be concerned about. (What you're suggesting is trimming the leaves, not uprooting the plant.) Or not. Some of us just like to pretend that all is fine in Whoville. :P

    And at the end of the day, this sort of discussion is not appropriate for the forums.

    Here my text just because im lazy:

    there are so SO many other marketing tricks that DO work on you and me, because we don't know its a trick.
    From most expensive food beeing on shoulderheight (only works if you have enough money to not seek out the cheapest food) to where wares are placed (most bought items are the furthest away from the counter so you have to walk through the entire mall to maybe pick up extra stuff or sweets on the counter so that kids that are staying in line for too long start nagging their parents)... there is SO MUCH stuff that unconciously gets you... because we are subconcious beeings. most of our thinking goes on beyond the veil. Our mind is just really REALLY good at making nicely sounding excuses. split-brain patient

    This is biological/psychological, not something you can be too smart to overcome. You only think it doesnt work because you conciously see what is happening. If you were never told that, this would work on you too (be aware that this doesnt mean people think its only 100$ but it just doesnt seem as much when considering buying it, which is the most important step in this process)
    off topic
    Spoiler: 

    So yeah... this definatly DOES work. Punishment ALWAYS hits you harder than reward, even if it is the same outcome.
    If you for example have a 10% chance of winning 50$ and you don't win it you say "eh it was a low chance anyways" but if everyone gets 50$ and later there is a 90% chance for it to be taken away, it hurts much more.
    Risk aversion
    This explains it a bit better.


    Trust me... you aren't better... just better educated...

    Tl;Dr:
    it does work. there are SO MANY tricks you dont know that still work on you... the only reason it doesnt is that you know of it. Marketing is psychology for narcicists. Manipulating you to buy certain things. And it works, because there is nothing but knowledge that helps to prevent it!
