You add doors and roofs yet?
Like the ONLY thing keeping me from purchasing this game. Which is moot because I've owned it in the past and simply forgot or deleted my humblebundle key page. So owning it AGAIN I mean.

I woulda wanted to build a house. But I think it wasn't fit with the game, so you have to craft/build sleeping bags or tents. There's houses for you, however, through modding.

Maybe in a future DLC.

How would you see your character with a roof? I understand doors so that monsters can't get in, but roofs? Its not like rain will do anything to you, or snow. If you want to avoid lightning, build a lightning rod.

Um... This isn't Minecraft. This is all about "being on the brink of death," not building houses and getting that ONE picture in the perfect spot.

Who are you to tell people how to enjoy a game?

Everybody in this thread is basically shunning this guy for wanting some more fluff (aka content). Seriously?

I'm not anyone to tell someone how to enjoy the game. I AM in fact someone to say what this game is, and that isn't Minecraft and about building houses.

Where did I say that Minecraft was the "wrong" way to enjoy a game? Please elaborate.

Any game where you build any sort of base is natural for people to want more options to make it as nice as you can. I myself wouldn't mind this being expanded on, making a nice base is always fun

I don't see a problem with a door, but roofs would have to be thatched at the most. Otherwise I'd feel like it was too cozy. I WANNA FEEL IN DANGER! AND LIKE I'M CAMPING! NOT DRINKING HOT CHOCOLATE!

I definately want doors/gates, it will help with walling up. I dislike needing an open space in my wall/fort/camp in order to get in or out. When you get swarms of Hounds or based near some spider dens, the mobs make it so you can't get out once they get in. Being able to run inside your wall and shut the door would help.

As for roofs...at first I wanted them but seeing as how the camera is...you wouldn't be able to see your character, or anything else for that matter. Instead I'd rather have advanced "dwellings". I mean the best thing you can get is a Tent, yet you can build a house(A house!) for Pigmen and Giant Carrots for Bunny People. It'd be nice to be able to build at least a Lean-to or Shanty/Shack/Outhouse. If only to function like a Tent with unlimited uses or less hunger penalty.

Either that or being able to build some sort of "overhang" building, one in which it acts as cover from rain/snow and nothing else. I've died a few times as WX-78 because I had to fight some Werepig that found my camp and it was raining. Being as how you can't use an Umbrella and a weapon I got screwed from rain damage. If I could have kited to some overhangs or something I could have maybe lived.

I don't know, but what's the point of being able to build wooden/checker flooring and rugs? Because having some wooden platforms or rugs in the middle of nowhere without any sort of roofing makes sense right? If something like this was implemented I don't see what the big deal would be for people who don't want them. Don't want it? Then don't use it.

This goes to show people do not read all the posts. Please don't start arguments unnecessarily. Not "everyone" was shunning him.

More importantly I would love the addition of doors and roofs. This bas been asked many times and there have been very positive feedbacks from many members of the community. The roof will not block the players view simply because it is possible to design it in such a way that when we step under it, it fades out.

However I was thinking more around the lines of actually entering our house. Basically when we enter it the screen goes black and loads then we are found in a small/medium square room. Time will stop when inside. So we can't camp in here forever. Inside you can decorate, and do what ever. Think animal crossing. Maybe have a trophy case and store valuable items in there, I don't know just go wild with it.
