Day 10 of why I'm not on deepworld because of my thesis project:
Just found out that two weeks worth of brain dissection and antibody staining was for absolutely mcfreakin nothing. The brains got discarded accidentally somewhere in the 292847583 PBST rinses they went through :')
Day 8 of why I'm not on deepworld because of my thesis project: Sometimes you just gotta google how to dissect a fly brain and then frantically email your professor at 8pm what the difference between washing and rinsing is only to spill the last remains of the last dissection you had left all over the floor.
Day 7 of why I'm on deepworld because of thesis project: Testing starts today!!! I'm gonna test to see how well they can climb, and then hopefully i remember how to dissect fly brain for the antibody staining!!!!
Day 5 of why I'm not on deepworld because of my thesis project: One of the batches of flies decieded they wanted to become celibate monks, therefore, Ive got no fruit fly subjects to test on. Another batch decided they've had enough of living in a test tube with a cotton ball stopper and liked sticking themselves to the wall better. Its been 2 weeks, my sanity is slowly fading.
Day 4 of why I'm not on deepworld because of my thesis: Snowpocalypse put me 2 days behind on work. I'm supposed to start testing tomorrow but none of my supplies are ready. No one has checked on the flies. Send help :(
You ever accidentally drop your cat 90 meters and then try to raise it back up except the cat keeps falling because someone decided to use dirt blocks and a shovel instead of real boy stone blocks and each time the cat falls it takes another year off your life and oh god why did I open the cat crate right next to a hole in the wall why
YEAH SEE THATS WHAT HAPPENED AFTER WE MADE A DIRT TOWER TO GET IT BACK UP THERE.
We had 5 people including myself trying to get to this cat up to the top of an apartment building and each time someone shoveled the wrong block down the cat went. So stressful 😰
Day 2 of the reason I'm not on deepworld because of my thesis project: Had to put down two flies because one decided to stick its leg where it didnt belong. Back to the CO2 pad I go, time to look for EVEN MORE replacements!!!!
Me: I'm going to play deepworld tonight!!! Thesis project: remember how two of your fruit fly test subjects that you spent days looking for just mysteriously vanished and now you have to check every 5 hours for replacements Me: ...okay no deepworld
I did not, but my PI thinks its hilarious that they just mysteriously disappeared (another fly decided that it very much wanted to mangle itself in its food)
Only managed to replace one set of flies, too tired to go look for the other set :(
So 2 years later timed dungeons were never fixed, but at least I can't get stuck on armadillos anymore THANK GOD for that :/ You used to be able to ride on top of mobs and I used it to create armadillo races. Not anymore I guess. Oh well :(
There are these dungeons that have timed doors that I can just never seem to complete, and i have no idea if its just because I'm slow or if the dungeon is just genuinely broken. You'd think 10 agility would get you through a horde of brains and back to the door before it shuts but no it doesn't. It's been 4 years and the underwater dungeon still gives me nightmares.
There are some dungeons I don't even bother with unless I'm willing to die multiple times. That water dungeon? I don't even know if it's possible to get through it without dying and respawning. Also that one with the regular protector in the middle, where you have to drop down through a timed trapdoor into that little room with the red chest? Forget it.
I have max agility and play on a Mac. I have the same problem getting slo-moed by the oversized hitboxes.
Some timed doors are just more unreasonable than others!
OH THANK GOD ITS NOT JUST ME. Yeah the trapdoor red chest one is killer. Sometimes I use /die to bypass the protector range when i return, sometimes I'll ask a friend to help me complete the dungeon.
Really if they just placed the protectors better it wouldnt be so much of a problem because I'd just mine the door mining the closest protector. Or you know, just dont use timed doors.
If both people could benefit from a chest that would be nice, like both could click on the chest and get something, then I would def co-op a dungeon. That would come with a lot of problems though :/
Until then I will continue to be a greedy dragon and hoard my dungeon loot away from everyone else
Can someone explain the trend of stacking 39834873288 inhibitors and spawners next to each other in market worlds in the middle of the sky. Like its been 4 years and y'all are still wasting spawners and space.
Today i found out that a guild member and some 12.9 year old I hang with are well versed in the art of guild espionage. Ive been gone for two years and apparently i missed yet another grandiose guild war. What is happening
I'm gonna be real honest I came back to this game bc I had a weird dream that deepworld VR was real and you could use plant powers in the game. I woke up thinking "hey I wonder if they ever made an android version" and sure enough there it is in the google store.
I have an odd penchant for calling people child, not in a condescending way just in an affectionate way. But one of my fave moments is watching a player lose their mind because I called them a child. Like listen I'm an old farty college student and 90% of the players are high schoolers therefore I have a 90% chance of being right
Coming back to dw after a year or two is so jarring because its like, oh hey let me go to north market and grab some typewriters, except north market has been empty for months and I can't even find times square. And what's this about space and why does everyone keep asking me for yellow crystals and platinum.
Pls, I am just a simple giblet farmer that is very confused and afraid.
You can find a new popular market by pressing or clicking the popular tab in the map, and space worlds are a thing now. Yellow, white, green, and rainbow crystals can be found in desert, space, and brain worlds respectively (rainbows can spawn in any). Platinum can also be found in space worlds, and is worth 1-2 diamonds, but you can trade it for MUCH better things when you sell it in bulk. Hope this helps!
