Entering the Ocean
« on: August 15, 2013, 10:15:36 pm »

I can seem to enter any oceans. I have tried using skill sets from Novice Swimmer to Grand Master Swimmer. Nothing has worked. Any help? I made a world where all of the main Races are on one small island, and then there are tons of other things outside of this small island.  From what has been revealed on the map, there are several towers outside of this one island. The island is pretty cool, but there is a whole other world out there.  Any help?

How are you attempting to get into the ocean? Are you using alt+movement keys? That will open up the careful movement options, which should let you proceed down into water

I tried that. It works in other Worlds, but not this one :o It's also not a OS bug, because I tried it on windows and it didn't work there either. Do you think it could be a world with a generated bug? o_o

Are you trying to enter the ocean from the fast-travel map?
If so: It doesn't let you swim from there, you have to press > to go into the normal 1:1 scale map and swim from there.  This could take a loooooong time, and swimming can be very dangerous.  The worst is when the water freezes around you and insta-kills you.

And that you can't sleep and so if you take long enough that'll kill you too!
