Yes!! My PC is not the best, and whenever I play, it is really laggy. Thank you "goodboy BG!"
i am on laptop it's not verry good and i have bad fps (win10 Home 4GB RAM 500GB HDD GPU 1300MB VRAM overclocked CPU 1.60 GHz)
oh god. i thought my 2.6 ghz 16 gb ram quad core processor ASUS notebook was bad
mine is ASUS too
Dual Core 3.0 GHz, 8 GB Ram and the game is runnig very good on fastest settings
I have only 1,9 GHz cpu and game runs beatifully and no lag
i think the game is runing bad on laptops because laptops don't have video cards they use the CPU and that is the problem but i am not shure about that
goodboy_BG That's only if you have it set to run on integrated graphics that it'll use up memory and it's not just laptops that can run integrated graphics, towers can run on them too. Laptops and notebooks can also have video cards but it depends on the laptop itself. I personally have a GeForce GTX 950M 2GB video card in my 15.4 inch laptop and I can run it just fine on max settings.
i have apple laptop air 1.6 GHz Intel Core i5 with 4GB RAM and it runs on the best graphics settings without one tinny lag spike for about 40-50 mins then it starts to realize what its doing and then it starts to slowly die
I play on a 1.6 GHz laptop with only 3200HD graphics. After tinkering with the settings a bit I found that "Simple " reduced the lag to a reasonable level. Using a counting system in my head to adjust for the action vs. result was possible and i played it anyway.
please make this game for the Xbox one and PS4 because not that many people have a computer and i dont have a computer but the controls would be easier and the game would be more popular and im bursting to play this. game but i cant so plase agree with me
"not that many people have a computer" lol
Ill Like That So Much And Scrap Mechanic On ps4 and xbox = best
Well i don`t need that i have a gaming PC
i just want raft to go on steam faster and make it multi player because that "MOD" does not work ( i cant seen to get it to work but my friend did :( )
YEAH!!! PLZ ADD THIS!!!
YES!PLZ ADD MORE RESOLUTION BECAUSE I HAVE LAG ON MY PC>ISNT THE BEST BUT I REALLY WANT THIS GAME!!AND SYSTERM REQUIREMENTS
Yeah ur right.Add some more resolutions or even graphic options.For example turn off the fog.because the fog is the laggiest bit.water particles off or on.Beautiful skies like in minecraft to turn off or on or just make the game that is playable on every platform.that it doesnt matter how much RAM do u have or how much does ur graphic card have,etc.
That makes the game shittier and ppl dont play it because its not good graphic and i think that fog is nice and realistic
Sorry love raft but the fog is the only laggy stuff. If the fog isnt there my game would run at 60 fps but with tje fog is running like dog poop. Literally. And resolutions like 800 6đ0 should be added for smoother gameplay. Its not worth it tjat the game looks good it only matters that its playable and i say no to fog!!!
ADD BEDS! OR AT LEAST RUBBER DUCKIES! AND MAYBE DAY/NIGHT CYCLE! PETS? MAYBE AN ISLAND????
"Rubber Duckies"? Does it at least have a benefit?
The "pets" part is a bit flimsy though, cause how are you going to be able to obtain one if you can die very easily in the ocean
The island part is kind of dumb though... Why would you have an island in a game that revolves around a raft. I feel like it's kind of defeating the purpose of the game
I agree with what he said. Maybe some suggestions more centered to the game plot? Tamed fish that grab seaweed and stuff for you? and even that is stretching it.
Regarding pets, I could see having a seagull land on the raft from time to time with something in its beak. You could feed it some fish and tell it to go collect something specific you're short on. Obviously, they couldn't carry a barrel but I could see them grabbing some scrap or seeds or a tin can. Yeah, that requires a bit more intelligence than is really realistic for a bird but this is a video game.
A parrot could be a fun animal companion. While it may not be helpful in terms of collecting stuff, it could squawk when the shark approaches or give you occasional hints.
Is not night
I see suggestions about birds. What about seal, walrus,... or dolphins? They can help you when you go diving or protect you from the shark
yes! more resolution. its only 640x400 in my laptop. and cant even see shit.
Are you using a laptop from the 90s or something?
Something is wrong on your end if the game is only letting you choose 640x400
hey man create day/ night and in the night is 2 shark ... i think is ok .. ca add bed + crafting table... or something in invetory
Make please co-op if u can
YES make co-op so ppl can play with friends
Its Coming in 2018 Steam Release
Создатели игры Raft не могли бы вы добавить оружие которое помогает быстрее избавится от акулу к примеру дробовик чтоб был лучше копья и дробовик состоял из таких деталей как 40 дерева 50 железа и 10 листьев пальмы это сам дробовик сделан а патроны к нему делались так 30 железа 10 дерева 10 пальмовых листьев и чтоб убивало акулу побыстрее . и чтоб вмещалось в него 2 патроны! если добавите к примеру версиях как 1.05 или в 1.06,1.07 я буду рад и пожалуйста можно после убийства акулы она возродится через минуту а не сразу! пожалуйста!
I've got a 4gb ram intel I3 hd 4400 graphics and i've got a little bit of lagg
My pc can run perfectly on max settings, are you sure you changed your settings to suit your pc?
ADD FISH TRAPS
MORE KINDS OF FISH
UPGRADE, BY DOING THE SAME THING BY TIME
I dont like the weight system. But should put more on the inventory thing. 10 per stack is quite limited.
but being able to hold more than 10 per stack is really unrealistic. Have you ever tried stacking 10 tin cans filled with water?
What type kind of abilitys do you have in mind, i believe a tiered ability system could be plausable.
What type of material, and what would the material be used for?
What kinds of upgrades? Perhaps you could upgrade parts of your raft to increase health. Possibly to increase boyouncy in the future (hint,hint)
You could go for a type of smeltery, where u can smelt scrap into metal ingot and u need like 10 scrap for 1 ingot or some stuff, then you can improve your raft with metal reinforced planks with like 250 health, but u need planks and scrap to repair it. Sometimes its bit unrealistic you dont have to fire up the cook station or the water supply. I had much fun til now playing this game, keep up the good work, thank you so much for your thousands hours of time!!
something like Skyrim where as you level up you could craft better things
I love the game and thanks to you that you are working on it. I wish that you would include a night. To make it a bit harder maybe things like waves, illness or storms. I also would like more ways of hunting ( birds with a bow or crabs with a busket). A new recourse like plastic garbage would be also interesting. Or how awesome would it be, If you could catch some turtles and use them. The game would be also harder, If you must keep you warm and hide from rain. All in all there are many ways to improve this wonderful game so keep it on guys. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Had to have arpao. Boats.chuva .... When you kill 1 shark, you get 2 when you kill 2 and you're 3 ... a mount to put in the shark and to tame some. Wetsuit, flashlight .. shark leather to do the wetsuit. Had to have a shelf to put a 4 chest on the side and on top of the other inguau the rust.ilha. The shark could jump. Cave. Under the sea. Motor for the boat.fuego bed day night. Bulbulous An alarm system.The doll cries when bitten.
I swore when you made storage it was going to be a barrel. *Next Update* WAT? why chests? Make it barrels!!!!
i am thinking about maybe a little bout so you can explore and find wrecked ships or buildings. also if you don't mind i would love to help make models because this is a fun game i really do enjoy the game. good luck bye.
Please put in the game a bed, or a sleeping, I also know what needs to this:
and 6 nails.
Please, can you put the rain on Raft ? It is an element of the game that you have not thought about.
i just want raft to go on steam faster and make it multi player because that "MOD" does not work ( i cant seen to get it to work but my friend did :( )
How do i make Raft run smooth, im on a mac
I agree with the carrots and cucumbers. But perhaps the extra trees would be a bit overkill?
Another thought would be recipes and more food ingredients. You could make bowls, large cooking stations, soups, stews, fish steaks... Perhaps you could brew some special tea if you find enough of a rare herb that can replenish your stamina quickly. Obviously, the different foods would require different cooking times and a special UI, so it'd take time to implement. That's just my two-cents, though.
We do need more food types and more ways. But the trees? They won't do anything and how will they grow?
The palm trees already grow in a tree crop plot. Perhaps there could be fruit trees? Oranges, apples, lemons... (I should note that citrus fruits are logical on the ocean, as vitamin C is needed to prevent scurvy. Yes, scurvy is a real disease and not just an insult thrown at low-ranking sailors.) Tropical fruits would be the main reason to have more trees. Other than that, I can't think of much else. Maybe some trees produce a sticky resin for water-proofing things? Resin could be useful for making boats.
I don't think the game needs more food at the moment, my entire playthrough I never had to worry about food. I could survive very easily off coconuts and shark meat with the occasional fish. Shark meat restores a lot of hunger and you get a lot of it. Water would be more deserving of improvements than food at the moment.
oh but maybe some fruits could have healing effects? or cure poisoning, if that mechanics is added?
Really, the coconut palm is passable because it has shallow roots and is salt tolerant. But citrus trees on a raft? I don't think that would wash. Scurvy only sets in after months at sea, and I really don't play this game for that long. Besides, you could get vitamin c from growing bell peppers You don't need trees.
i like the more trees idea but i think more tropical trees like banana trees or pomegranate trees or even a papaya tree?
and sensitivity is also a good idea
Better sensitivity would be better and guns.Add guns u could trickshot
Your supposed to survive the ocean not kill everything in your path
Thats so shitty idea
Worst idea eveer
Sensitivitey isn't very neccesary as in most cases you can adjust the sensitivity of your mouse with its software or windows settings.
I've been using Xpadder, and the game feels great with a controller. This would be a great addition somewhere down the line!
Yes, like the XBOX One controller for PC and similars
controller support would be heaven. I'm extremely lefthanded and I have trouble playing games w/ keyboard and mouse. (I have a cheap speedlink controller but it would be great to be able to use it more often)
great ideas bro, and you are right, i was playing for an hour and i created a ten floor big building
No way was I able to accomplish that level in an hour on my macbook (no it is not ancient and I am not exactly feeble). I like the easy medium hard idea. Raft Trainee, Raft Accomplished and Raft Expert statuses?
Indeed, defenses would be nice.
or maybe once your raft exceeds a certain number of structures more sharks appear. That way you don't have 5 sharks attacking your 2x2 raft
HAs a bug with the spears, you cant use it when you have more or less 45min game
I thinks, wil be fun too,
more type of enemy, a kind of bird that steals your fish, or bites you for example.
Temperature problems, need of a fire to survive. Ad a campfire or similar
more difficult to agriculture
and a water collect, that can be drinked direcly
vertical stairs (¡¡¡PLEASE!!!)
On a longfuture.. maybe...
a little ship to move away the base
Little isles, with coconuts (loot)
brocken ships (Loot)
VERY IMPORTANT MULTIPLAYER OPTION
Underwater playing is something that I wanted to suggest myself!
Perhaps even a shark cage of sorts with limited durability would be cool on top of your suggestions.
Those sunk ships(or simple chests and barrels lying around for a treasure hunt) could maybe include spices such as salt and sugar...
In terms of underwater, snorkeling would be great, but you have to keep track of where the raft is drifting to so you don't lose it. Danger of shark attacks when you get too far out, or maybe limits on stamina.
Spear fishing would be cool underwater, with a chance that each kill might attract the shark so you have to be vigilant.
I agree I would like to see like an Octopus attack or even the Kraken curing a storm.
now that is a great thing that can be in the game
The damage of the shark to the player is too low.. at least 6 or 7 bites should kill you
Agree with the too low damage but if you are dead, everything you have built in many many hours is gone and you have to start at the beginning.
So first the system of saving your game has to change. You can continue from your last save when dying and not at the world´s first beginning.
Makes more sense, if the game has some kind of dangerous stuff like diving for treasures, so you can risk a bit and not lose everything.
PLZZ add fish traps DAT WILL BE DA BESTTT so tell me when dat will be in | nice to have traps
Or another kind of wall that is more expensive that stops the shark from attacking that tile
It would be cool if the game started with 1 shark but then everytime you killed it or every few minutes or something another shark would come so there are 2 sharks it just progressively gets harder
Yea but i basically depend on sharks for my food source after that hour or so
Add some seasons,rain,thunder, more like this.
What should happen is every time you kill a shark, 2 spawn in its place.
This is a great idea. Maybe add some different obstacles or things that makes it harder to survive, like storms or something. Also along with the spikes, you could add reinforced foundations that required scrap because at the time there isn't enough uses for scrap.
You have nice Ideas too :)
This is a brilliant idea!
YES!!!! We need bows!
The tools should also be able to brake after using it too much.. like the spear, hatched, fishing pole
the food should spoil after a certain amount of time.. adding salt could prevent them from spoiling..
i know it is hard for a small team like the raft team to just make every wish come true in the game but so far the raft team has done a hell of a good job.. keep up the good work guys :)
I thought in the bows idea, and in the birds one. But then i remembered; there are no birds in the ocean xD
well.. technically there are, but only near land masses. so if a bird appears, then it means your near an island or larger.
Could add a rope+hook arrow that flies further than the standard hook but has the same functionality, also gives a reason to craft more hooks, aswell as fire arrows which dont do all that much damage but scare the shark away pretty quickly but if you miss it could set the raft on fire
Adding different items that have exactly the same purpose is adding complexity for nothing.
MADY THE JUST METAL WUOLD be stronger thanreinforced? becuase just metal is stronger. so then mabe lesss metal for reinforced?
that will be AWESOME! A+ for you :]
Ah, upgrade the health not repair that's a great idea but in the end wouldn't it just add like 5 more seconds to get the shark off your foundation
That is what I thought when i first downloaded the game, they should add that!
Also have a way to upgrade your thirst and hunger bars. They do become a chore to manage if your playing for a long time.
Left click and hold with an axe to remove items.
I think an axe doesn't remove the water purifier and the cooking station for some reason...unless there was an update, idk.
I just had the same problem
Had the same problem. I also think there should be a way to "pick up" objects "on" the raft, like the water purifier, the cooking station, the crop plots, etc.
I'll second this. Once I built a second floor, I decided I wanted to specialize and move things around but I didn't want to just destroy what I had on the first floor.
yeah it would be soo cool.. then the crafting of clothes would be and option as well.. i dont know if it's possible to use shark skin as cloting.. if not.. a new animal with fur should be added in the game like a seal or walrus..
a firepit for light is not an option because it will burn down the raft and it's not logical... if you can make metal foundation then it would be and option to make a firepit..
"tub '\" or curved, slightly dished, item made from scrap may hold a fire and be placable/ movable to allow for expansion/ changes.
I like the idea, and I think if it is combined w/ other ideas I saw, like difficulty and an open fire that would warm you up, It could be very fun and realistic.
New locations would be great, perhaps the arctic, with icebergs to mine off of!
The latest version (1.04) has chests.
Yup, I've just downloaded it :D
Great to see that the devs are working non-stop on the game and care about the community.
I have to say I agree the game needs this mechanic to increase productivity and help food.
same. one of my fav
same| one of my fav too| :D
ermm... yea... banana trees would be hard as there is no such thing as a banana seed. bananas are a hybrid tree and every single banana tree in the world is grown from a branch cut off the same original tree.
( there are only 2 types of bananas in the world)
Maybe you could get Banana tree branches off of Barrels? Sorta like how you get Potatoes out of barrels.
I like the idea to make it harder but instead of sharks i think Birds should be added, like a pelican.
lol i was thinking it would be awesome to have pirates invade and then i red your comment glad someone else is to
Yeah the pirates would be really awesome
Bad idea, it's already bad enough with the shark attacks, adding pirates in would be a hassle.
It's not that hard, you can fend sharks off by luring them to you and then stabbing them. Once you get three stabs in on the shark it will disappear and then another cycle begins. I think it takes 9 stabs to kill a shark.
I would love pirate attacks where you can steal the pirate boats
and weapons and n supplies
Yeah the introduction of pirate ships with different "special" items would be cool, ie telescope, pirate steering wheel, sails for decoration, maybe a map of the area, golden chest etc. etc.
On the subject of pirates, you could make it so that they only start appearing once you have a couple of chests. They come to steal your chests and you have to fend them off. If they were to use, say, a harpoon gun or a fishhook like yours to grab the chests, you could cut the ropes with your spear or the axe. You could protect the chests with walls - actually having a purpose for walls would be nice!
Good idea, also it would be nice if it was possible to steal a pirate ship after defeating the pirates on it and the ability to use the stolen ship to travel to an island. Something like a pirate captain boss fight could be added too. (to make stealing a pirate ship harder)
or drifting island
and it should be super far away and have banana trees or something
YES! Please add this option! I really want to play this game but I just can't :(
WAIT! I never knew people actually used that feature in games 0-0.
Definitely this. I'm going to give it my best shot, but I'm a little disappointed that I paid for this game (I know; my choice to donate) before I learned that there's no inverted mouse. Please add soon.
just turn your mouse 180 degrees
It would be a very good idea to add invert mouse option for the game.
I love those ideas but I don't want this game to turn into minecraft on the water.
HuFas and Maheehoo, it seems like it's from minecraft because just about everything in real life is on minecraft. Mods or not.
also a smeltery for making weapons
Good Ideas And Also if there is a night cycle There could be 2 sharks instead of 1? :)
But this is nothing like minecraft... i think this guy's ideas are pretty amazing!
and it would help/make the game even a better one!
Great ideas here 1 thing.
You could find blueprints from bottles floating at the sea!
This is a cool idea. Why stop at blueprints? These bottles could also contain hints or lore.
how about some goods which we could find occasionally in barrell? like walkman, painting etc.
nice thinking 9/10 games with Durability make me want to die and no big rafts would make the game get boring after 2 hour of gameplay but still nice thinking
Maybe if your injured and go in the water the blood will attract more sharks
I was thinking you could have an automatic harpoon, like a shark trap, however it would do less damage, deter the shark easier, use up ammunition instead of using none, the ammo would get stuck to the shark, and you could retrive it if the shark got close enough, have a clip version which would store more ammo, and another version which would have a bell buoy which would make noise, and alert you if the shark was getting close.
There should be gun parts in barrels that are very rare to find, like 1/100 barrels have 1 part, and find blueprints for making gunpowder, bullets and a crafting station, like you can do in ARK, and cannons for fighting pirates and maybe multiplayer combats. (if you do this, make PvP and EvP servers and LAN possible) Also, nig youtube channels like ZerkaaPlays and Slogoman play this game, look at their vids for feedback, and as a Promotion source.
Doesn't every foundation float?
It would be pretty cool if they would add multiplayer as well, because I want to play with my friends xD
These are great ideas. Adverse weather effects and a day/night cycle are fantastic additions. Needing to seek shade during harsh sunlight and warmth during cold nights is realistic - with rain/snow exacerbating the issue.
Scripted-events would be a great addition. As you progress, certain resources should begin to dwindle. These events would provide a way of obtaining those resources but would only appear after a set amount of play time. Here are a few examples:
1. You drift toward a derelict raft. You need to determine whether or not its worth the risk of leaving your raft to explore this new raft. Maybe there are enemies hidden on-board or sharks surrounding it. There's also the risk of your raft drifting too far away to return.
2. You land at a small island. You can explore it for resources but you risk encountering dangerous animals. The island doesn't generate important resources. It MUST be harder to survive on an island than floating on the raft.
3. You float over an undersea cavern which can be explored after dropping an anchor. There could be treasure inside but also enemies and possible drowning concerns. Maybe even traps.
4. You approach a whirlpool which will destroy your raft if you don't steer around it.
5. You're approached by a militant raft with human enemies that use fire to damage your raft.
6. You're approached by a friendly raft that has armed or unarmed traders or NPCs.
I'm not totally on-board with armor as it would likely tunnel the game progression toward reaching that safety net.
MUY BUENAS IDEAS WOU / VERY NICE SUGGESTIONS
Rain? In the middle of the ocean?
I think rain and water purification/collection system from rain would be cool, but as an adverse effect make rain put out all fire necessary items(cooking etc.) that are not under a safe platform.
I would also love to see thatched roof systems and maybe thatch pipes to carry said water from a rain catcher to a barrell?
I love ALL of those ideas, and maybe from extracting salt from the sea, you'd be able to season or cure the fish you catch? All of it sounds great, I hope they put some more of these ideas in :)
I like the ideas but they should also add a diving suit....
That sounds cool and everybody sbould agree
If you read the FAQ it specifically said they don't plan on adding multiplayer
THIS WOULD BE AMAZING!
multiplayer would make the game even beter
The thing is, its not that easy to turn a single player game to a multiplayer one
It really is pretty unrealistic... If food becomes more effecting, it should also be more rare... You get potatoes and fish so much so easily....
best seller? more like most popular. this is me= e.g game costs 10$ i pay 30$ :D
Addictive ac yeah. I had literally no idea it could be sunny.
I like the idea but there should also be a hypothermia meter.
kraken sounds? HELL YEA AND HELL CREEPY *stops playing the game*
The only issue i have with this comment is that the sun starts fires. That could cause some issues i think. Lightning storms maybe to cause lightning strikes that catch the raft ablaze?
I mostly meant in the summer since that would be the hottest time. But heck. Why not both lightning storms AND fires. But when I say it starts a fire, there would be some sort of sound cue as it starts to heat up, then, if the player doesn't douse it with water in time, it grows. the whole raft won't go up in flames though. I mentioned that the lower floor is safe since it is actually touching the water.
I dont know, I think that raft is a game that you make things because your stuck on a raft and not to find something out from a story
having a taller raft vs a wider raft would make the center of ass heavier leading to more sinking it would be mor realistic to hae wider rafts per floor becaues the area of center of mass becomes larger so a woder raft would be able to hold more weight and have the need of objects more toward edges vs center to make it more balance rather than sink or tip
Multiple sharks as your raft gets bigger maybe? Then you can fend one off but another takes a bite out of your raft so you have to make the decision which one(s) are you going to sacrifice first.
Good idea, but instead of using it for water, use it as armor for protection
I really like that island idea! and maybe you can find hints of other crew members on them for the story!
Maybe throwing fish in the water atrracts sharks if you want to kill them
I really like the buoyancy idea, and maybe you also can't make it too big on one side or it will tip!
The crab traps and bait sounds awesome. Perhaps you could craft different types of bait from different resources. (i.e. potato and fish or potato and shark) And different bait types will have a higher chance of attracting more crabs. Perhaps a type of bait could be made that attracts a rare crab type.
The latest version (1.04) has chests so wouldn't that be good enough?
O.k., how about just salted meat and water storage, skip the barrels.
I think there should be barrels, as they would be more practical for storing meat and liquids than chests. you could also have a barrel on your spawn platform which would have meat/water on easier difficulties( an idea that I've seen multiple times now).
lol Yes, a boot! And when you fish it out of the sea, your character can hold the boot in disgust (with just the pointer finger and the thumb) and you can throw it back. Or throw it at the shark. :P
there are already chests and when you load the game there's a launcher so you can change the graphics quality
$5?! More like $10 or $15. Heck, with a little more months of work or maybe an year of work, the developer could charge around $20! $5 is too low in my opinion.
I agree putting it on Steam would be good and you could make use of achievements, badges, auto updates, etc. but there's the overhead of getting it on Steam (one-time $100 fee) plus it has to be submitted to Greenlight then approved (based on popularity, probably wouldn't be an issue with this game but still a hurdle) as well once it's greenlit then Steam has to contact you and work out the details of getting things setup. A lot of work for something that's already available on itch. Still I think it would be good a good idea, but probably later in the development cycle and after there's been enough content to get to an alpha or beta stage maybe.
Yeah. The game is fun, but for only those few moments in the beginning. It is lacking a LOT. It's a good concept that shouldn't be held down to the current state that it is at, or anywhere near, for that matter. I am not saying it should be some gold tier kind of game, but it has potential to be a good fun game for longer than an hour; which is about the time it takes to do everything. Maybe 20mins if you're familiar with the game. Where it's at right now is good. It's free, and with the nameing of the price for the buyer, it lets people try it to see what it offers. Later on, they should charge, but it is too bare-bones to have a real set price for it.
What other enemies can be introduced though?
Pirates and pirate ships, tribes from nearby islands, whales, piranhas, octopuses, alien invaders, creepers, Master chief, Dark peasant, dinosaurs, giant kittens, emoji monsters ans so on
Alien invaders? That doesn't fit the theme of the game. Creepers? From Minecraft? Um... Again, doesn't fit the theme of the game. Master chief? From Halo? Again, doesn't fit the theme of the game. Dark peasant? Doesn't fit the theme. Giant kittens? Same reason again. Emoji monsters?! That REALLY doesn't fit the theme of the game.
this should be changeable by a difficulty level.
(sorry for this correction, I had to.) it is a palm tree, not a coconut tree.
Also, I'm not sure if it is just my computer being slow, but the frame rate is quite low for me.
Story mode just doesn't seem right for this type of game. Regarding multiplayer, the dev has said that the studio is currently small thus they can't do multiplayer so currently, it is not a planned feature and I don't think will be implemented for a long time. Concerning sized islands to go to, that would ruin the very thing that made this game unique. Many games already do this thus if this game did it, it would not be as unique. Finally, diving in the ocean, many games already do this (Subnautica being a popular one).
I've never seen a developer use Trello before, but that's an awesome idea. Helps the community see what's a priority and what to expect from future updates and whatnot.
Great idea! Definitely approve of this. Transparency sure does go a long way.
Yea. Good idea!
they could also add an illusion which would make the raft appear to turn at times, and this would also change the current.
Multiplayer is not planned currently sadly. The developer has already stated that in the FAQ.
круто надо добавить вам
and if the whale dies you can pull meat of the floating carcass for a couple days but it also attracts a couple more sharks until it's gone
Multiplayer sounds awsome
Regarding multiplayer, it is stated in the FAQ that multiplayer is not planned for the foreseeable future.
Maybe After The Alpha Version
No pickaxes, that would be to much like Minecraft.
That is too much like subnautica.
This is a good idea and you should find gems and gold to trade with npcs around the map
+1 for the taming an animal. Also, I think Co-Op could be the next best thing compared to multiplayer.
+1 for rain. That could be a small step towards more dynamic weather feature and features related to it.
mabey raft fires could be turned off via dificulty?
elevators would be wayy too advanced for the theme for this game. An automatic purifier however seems interesting. I wonder how it would work.
I proposed an idea of using sea turtles to capture drinkable rain water (totally stolen from The Forest) or something primitive. Think Gilligan's Island, but I agree there shouldn't be an overly complicated mechanical system here. You're stuck in the middle of nowhere with next to nothing on your back. You're not MacGyver.
or any other game that has that mechanic lol
that will be sooooo cool
How about choosing how long to sleep for
I totally agree
you should have a setting to make thosee mini barrels float, but it would use up wood.
And it should start to tip if you add to much to one side, and it will not let you build more in that direction until you add more to the other side!
I agree. Maybe we could be able to place priority on items for whether they go to the inventory first or the bar first, since you might pick up a can of water to drink immediately from the bottom bar, but want rope and planks to always go in the inventory.
Yes, I think there should at least be some menu bar slots permanently for drinking and eating items. It's annoying always having to shift out a bit of rope to make way for you drinking cup.
I got a very similar idea, where there could be a new wepon - a harpoon - which could have a bell buoy attached to warn you if the shark is approaching.
And in the night there will be some sea monsters, And the shark will go away until the daytime its back.
When you start the game there is an option below to change the graphics (Fastest to Beautiful)
Regarding turrents, that is unrealistic with the game's theme.
They could add Co-Op but not multiplayer. They already stated that multiplayer is not a planned feature for the foreseeable future.
You can also fish with a Fishing Rod to get Raw Mackerel
Those are some amazing ideas, I love how all the things are highlighted in bold.:D
I hope the Devs look at my ideas and consider adding them.
Man! Your ideas are so great! i really wish your ideas to be added in the game :)
I can already imagine the cool cloth and steel that we can use to make more items :D
I know right? It would be so cool if you could make steel tools, and find a super rare crate every once in a while!
WOW! i love your ideas
Я не думаю, что пираты были бы хорошим дополнением к игре. Возможно, подводное плавание, все больше и больше материалов крафта рецептов было бы более полезным.
I like this idea would make the game 100 times better. so cool, Im donating a dollard already
just wondering, what would the npc characters be like? who would they be?
btw theres already an npc... the shark
that would make the game so much better
just look at the title of the game, they wont add islands.
why not? only because its called 'Raft'? It still has a lot stuff with a raft.
There shouldn't be islands in Raft. It defeats the purpose of a raft in total. If you found an island with a healthy amount of food, you have a water purifier, and enough trees for a house, your basically set for the rest of the game. Zombieslayer008 is right, it's called Raft for a reason. If islands were added, this would turn into a regular survival styled game. This game is different, and I think we need to keep it this way.
umm they said they would be adding islands...
Rly? I cant find this message anywhere where did they post that?
In one of the surveys they had a question about wat ppl would want to see added to the game. They said they would eventually be adding all of the options in the question, which were:
- Moving your raft
-Other NPC Rafts
I really like your idea so what i was thinking about is maybe make something dangerous on the island could be canibals or wild animals that wants to hunt you down. so i wont be that easy to get to the island. it could also be cool if there was some secret rum storages from pirates or something
Would also be nice if they added, sea exploration (or at least more verticality the game, right now you can only go up). Not sure about the Islands stuff because I believe would make it too similar to Stranded Deep. And the village ideas would be cool but if NPC's can live on the island what reason gives the player to stay on the raft instead of going to the island? Maybe dangerous predators etc could be added to make the player consider the risks of going to land for resources (would also need to make the resources coming from the ocean, less reliable, to also make the player need to go into the islands, otherwise they would stick to the raft and that would be boring). All great options and all, but if executed poorly, it can skew the scope of the game and make it seem lost and with no purpose
Raiju, great ideas you got there! And lets turn all villagers into cannibals, and the other NPC's live on rafts! And maybe they can add some new weapons. And maybe the developers can think about dock building. so you can build docks and explore other islands. And yes, the resource floating by are way too much. So if they add islands, they can also make random chests on the beach of the islands. And i think the idea of predators and stuff awesome! if they will add all of this, this game will be so awesome! predators: crocodiles, of course sharks, and lions (rare).
I agree with sea exploration. There needs to be a way to attach either sails or have manual rows on your raft to explore different areas across the sea. When you explore new areas you can find other computer generated ships and rafts with NPC's on it where you can trade, fight, steal and whatnot, creating friendly or hostile relationships with other people. When you go to other areas, you would encounter different things flowing in the water, and in different directions. At endgame, if you have the resources and you have made generators from harnessing fire or using wave power, you could attach simple motors to your raft to get to areas faster. Since you and NPC's will be on the same ocean, there should be different weapons instead of a spear. To plunder other ships and sink them, you would need simple firearms, using rare gunpowder, scrap metal and other materials to make them. Or you could mount cannons which take up lots of space, are hard to maneuver and are expensive to fire and to craft, but that deal significant damage to other ships and NPC's.
not trying to be rude but it sounds a lot like stranded deep like that
Here are my ideas and glitches:
This could just be meant to be but I thought I would mention it anyway
Smoke Weed Everyday :D
ok just saying most of these ideas are just from the developers ideas... they are already planning to add most of these..
They are not adding multiplayer....
good idea mincpower
a island and having stone
but also if i may can i add something
maybe some new weapons as well and new build options (like the chair and the lamp and the table)
The first and second items are bugs. They'll find it easier in the bug report page. Third idea is a good one. But only if they implement multiplier. And I've always loved the idea of going under water and searching for items and resources there.
I agree with weight limit but watergod wouldn't be fun and would be too much like minecraft and spawn points are bad and i think you should lose everything when you die
I support your idea!
they should add like a cutscene before playing the game, which tell us the backstory
In creative mode, furniture would look nice like beds,tables and seating etc.. its probably unnecessary for some people, but its just what im thinking :)
The multiplayer should just be one mode where you can decide to trade/team/raid other players and the creative mode wouldn't be fun I think there should be a building mode where you take no damage and don't starve or dehydrate but you have to get your own resources outside of building mode. Building mode should be turned on and off in main menu and in game toggled with the buttons 'ctrl b' in game. You shouldn't be able to do much in building mode apart from opening chests, building and breaking. In building mode you don't get resources back from stuff you built if you break it.
for the multiplayer you mean pve servers and pvp servers(player vs entity (eg the shark) and player vs player (eg attack each other))

I suggested creative mode due to the fact that they game saves aren't backwards compatible. I myself put over 5 hours of work into my save in v1.03 and sadly cannot play in that same world in the newer versions. Creative mode would be a quick way for users to quickly regain any lost progress.
great idea but with the stuff that we get from the ocean making electronics would be impossible and on top of that if there were floating computer chips and stuff like that the water would have already fried the battery before it came to us :/ nice idea tho!!!!
Maybe It Should Be On The Barrels Or Maybe In Something Else
Yea Good Idea

Engines would be difficult i think you could make sails and masts to move and maybe have a steam powered Turbine engine
im not hating but making the game more realistic would be more fun and adding all teh of the features that have been reqested (of course not ALL of them ). The only reason im asking of this is because when you play for a really long time you have food recorses because of the nets so the only thing to do is sit there and wait for the shark which is kinda boring.
And please make the sound Q for the shark alittle louder because i have my headphones turned up on the second floore of my raft but when i come back down half of my faft is gone because i can never here the sound QAND ONE MORE THING BEFORE I GO!!! just to make it a little more ominis maybe play the JAWS music when your in the water because the shark starts swimming towards you just to make it kind of scary.
I was thinking you could ad defence mekinisms and there have been alot of reqest of adding spikes and stuff but alot of people have been talking about weight so i dont think those would even be possible. what i as thinking of is somthing more....suttle. For instance when you kill the shark he always comes back!! theres no breaks inbetween! hes alllwaaaaays there. so i was thinking maybe when they try to eat the nets that are on the outside of the raft they would get caught in it delaying the spawn of another one.
This is kinda overkill but maybe the shark could have a family a kind of...reason why te sharks keep coming back and maybe when you killong of the sharks th eone from far out can smeel the blood and when they spawn the come rushing twords where ever the other one died.
Maybe in the game sence the only things you can collect on the surface are planks scraps etc. when the shark isnt looking you could dive under water. this could increase your fatiuge when you diving in regularly.
This is pretty much just an add-on to number five but SCUBBA GEAR WOULD BE AWSOME!! it could be used to stay under water longer because maybe when you go under water ynext to your fatuige you have a blue breath meeter and building peice-by-peice scubba gear would help you when your under water as far and moving and searching goes!!
why absolute turkish? because you from Turkey?!
for me it's absolute polish then :D
yeah just cause your language is turkish dosent mean its the most important but english is as most people play with english
Spanish, English, French, Russian, Chinese and Arabic are the most spoken languages so they should implement them first
Regarding multiplayer, the devs stated that there are no plans currently to add multiplayer.
Automated stuff could be like steam engines and stuff because that would be more realistic
+1 for the source of light and day-night cycle.
+1 for reinforced foundations and refined metal
they can add crocodiles. Crocodiles could walk on a raft, you could kill them with crossbow
Concerning multiplayer, it is stated in the FAQ that there are no plans to add multiplayer currently.
Nice idea,and co-op too.
Multiplayer is currently not planned. It is stated by the devs.
Multiplayer is currently not planned by the devs.
The crops shouldn't include beetroot
It is stated in the FAQ, multiplayer is not planned anytime soon and you can't use worlds from 1.03 into 1.04.
The point of this game is the harsh life of living on a raft...
Since then doesn't have many more options this game, that if these only in the middle of the ocean doesn't make sense to get so many objects and so many things without a site where the votes come from, would come a point where serious repetitive, only a game build if not you put something more adventure just getting tired.
That is a bit too much to ask. There is only 3 developers working on this game. Outta the 3, only one of them is a programmer. Be patient for game updates.
Great list! There are some things that I personally would like to talk about more...
How would they affect your raft?
What would the pirates be like (Modern, old school, what would they do)?
How rare would a pirate attack be?
-Bow and arrows
This idea I do not personally like because fighting the sharks with the spear is such an original thing that it should be left like it is. (Other melee weapons would be cool)
Raft multiplayer would be a very interesting concept. In my opinion the multiplayer should be like this...
1-4 People spawn on the same raft
There are multiple sharks
Thats all I have to say...
Thanks so much!!
C'est du développeur:
Si le multijoueur sera implémenté, il ne sera pas dans un futur proche, les raisons étant que nous avons seulement un programmeur et c'est une caractéristique difficile à ajouter.
Some players have weak computers, so maybe there could be fog limits, detail options, and shader options? For those who have strong computers, they can turn the settings up. For those who have weak computers, they can turn the settings down.
Night and day would be cool.Maybe different creatures spawn at different times of the day, seems like something that could be interesting.And yeah less drinking would be nice along with a save feature.Great ideas! :)
optimize the game please i have a graphic card and i cnts play with beatifull graphics
Do you have a high end ish graphics card?
yes i have a radeon R9 280
Make sure you have updated graphics driver and be sure to have DirectX11 or above.
You would have to have something that would get rid of the shark or like one of those shark cages to go to the bottom of the ocean
When you consume a coconut shell you get both thirst and hunger refilled so esentially it's doing what you're asking, is it not?
Yeah, but if they add a sufficient amount of food, they would need to decrease the speed of how fast your hunger and thirst lowers. With more types of food also, it should also be possible to combine some food, like making sandwiches or salads.
