  1. Now this thread is not meant to call anyone out, nor is it about venting your frustrations over mistakes noobs make. These are tips aimed more at showing ways of being considerate than improving your skill at the game. I don't have a lot of time for playing computer games, so when I play DST I tend to hop on a random server and help out all I can before I have to leave (sometimes hosting my own server if I can't find one, which tends to be lonely), and I thought it would be nice to share ways I've found of not being a liability and not getting on peoples bad sides. I'd like to see other peoples tips too, in case there's some I've missed or just haven't thought of. So here's mine :3 Don't ask where the Base is Right After Joining: This one's simple, but it goes a long way in not annoying people. Now I know that when you first enter a server you want to know where you can come to at night to cook and spam the /dance emote, but be patient. If you aren't given directions or offered an escort, explore, gather some things, get your bearings. People will respect you more if you survive a few days before asking where the base is located. Who knows, you may even find it on your own! Don't Pick Everything: When first entering one of the many randomly generated islands, our brains tend to immediately slip into PICK ALL THE THINGS mode, especially those of us who've spent a fair amount of time in the single player game. However, when playing in multipayer, one has to stop and think, "Hey, if I systematically pick every bit of flint, grass, twigs, and food from around the portal in a ten mile radius, then there won't be anything left for new players!" Please, be considerate. How can you expect new players to survive a few days if they can't even scrounge up enough for a torch? Drop some Flint by the Portal: It's a small thing that'll help out people just entering the server. You don't even have to go out of the way to do it; if you happen to be pasing by the portal and have some flint to spare, just drop some by it, or make a pickaxe to leave behind so they can collect their own. Heck, I've heard of people making a chest by the portal containing equipment like torches, rabbit earmuffs, and pickaxes to help new players out. Don't Enter in Winter or Summer: Pay attention to the day and season of the server you're joining. If you want to join in a difficult season for some extra challenge, go ahead. Just don't expect everyone to drop what they're doing to help you out. If you don't want Strangers, set a Password: You'd think this one would be a no brainer, but I've heard a lot of stories of people joining servers just to be kicked the moment they enter. I assume it only happens when someone doesn't know that they can make a password for they're server, but still, it's rude. Drop your Stuff Before you Leave: Before you leave a server, it's nice to drop your items on the ground so others can use them. If you're playing with familiar people on a server you know you'll be on again, you can keep your equipment. In any case it's still rude to leave with gears, a big stack of silk, or any other important items still in your inventory, selfishly taking them out of reach of the unfortunate players left on the server. Keep Busy: Look around the base. Does it still need some drying racks? A crockpot? Some farms? Do the traps need to be emptyed? Are you low on wood? Look around for things that need to be done, and if you're having trouble finding something, it never hurts to ask. No one likes a leach. I hope you enjoyed reading through my wall of text and I didn't waste your time. Feel free to post helpful tips of your own, and you might help a few people become a little more helpful. Maybe. If you want a tldr just read the bold text.
  2. So far I've got a few problems with maxwell which for the life of me I cannot seem to be able to fix.First is the shadow puppets.When the hounds attack,the workers are always instagibbed and I cannot protect them.That is a major issue for me.The second issue is his fragile hit points. I always move around with armor since I get twice the amount of damage normal characters get (that's half hp for maxwell) but I always run out of armor and not having a backpack with me is annoying. Plus when it's raining and when it's summer you have to wear this nice eyebrella but that leaves no room for helmet. Thanks in advance for any tips.
  3. This thread is totally not referring to anybody not even that piece of &$*$ #&*@#^?@ *$&@!# who wrecked my entire server overnight, This guide was meant to educate other player on how to be survive better in a random server with strangers I never had given any trust with stranger, that's why I only play DST with my family and friends, But lately I see that alot of player here is being nice to me. So I say "Hey! why not give yourself a chance with strangers and maybe make a new friends". Then I greeted them with warm welcome, gave them basic materials and some food, But well, peoples are just ******** Don't ask where the base is: Instead say it better with words like "Hey I'm new to this game, maybe you can give me a few direction" or "Can anyone help me? I'm lost", Also playing as character that doesn't do well at fighting like Wes or Wendy will increase your chances, If the host doesn't believe you then make it like you're being chased by spiders and other monsters and die like a lot, the host will than have no choice but to help you out Deduce who is the host yourself: If you just immediately ask who is the admin, people will become suspicious at you, The host usually appear to be much better geared and spend most of their time talking and walking, Once you're sure who the host is, start being extra nice, and pretend to be interested with whatever they're talking about, if you think that you are close enough with the host then Immediately be oblivious by saying "By the way, who is the host of this server?" followed by "Oh didn't though you're the host" Compliment: Compliments is ten times more precious than a thelucite, so do your best and compliment someone when he did something good and belittle yourself when someone did something bad. Do enter during Winter or Summer: Not much know about this but if you enter during one of this time, other people will be more likelier to take pity on your misfortune and decides to help you out, this may even accelerate your progress in gaining trust Give not Keep: Try to give everything you got from gathered material to foraged food, and even meats from your hunt, That way you will gain better privilege to have access to the storeroom, there you can steal anything you need for your selfish reason, just don't do it too often or someone will get suspicious Always point fingers: If you might got caught doing something bad or someone noticed that stuff from the storeroom disappearing, always blame the one with the least trust or even better, a newcomer. Importantly don't play direct role in accusing someone, instead whisper your suggetion directly to the host, Here is a set of extra manipulative words you can use "I don't know, the only people that has access to the storeroom is me, host, host's friend, and Bob (Bob never have access to the storeroom)", followed by "I thought you gave bob permission to access the storeroom, he told me that" Or if you know that the admin a foreigner, "Hey man what does putain mean?","I overheard Bob called you that, is it like a word for friend",and "If so the you are my putain" "Well I did saw bob walking with (name any gear that you may stole, or crafted by the stolen item)" After you successfully blamed someone, Immediately suggest the host to ban em' because when they found out you blamed them, you are in big trouble Gain other's trust: When the host already trusted you, then your next step is to gain the trust of someone who were close to the host like her sister or her best friend, they will come to your defence when someone else tried to accuse you, so do the basic maneuver or compliments and assistance Make them think It's their Idea: One of the trait of manipulation is to make people think the same way you do, don't just say, "I think we should all go hunt the fat frog" People hate being ordered around, Instead wait for a small conversation to happen, then agree on whatever they're saying, and then drop something like "Wouldn't the base look much better if we have some mushroom lamps", this would then continue with them talking about the toadstool to other players. Well then good luck on your adventure and may this guide help you survive by leeching on other, and if your username is ************ then go ***** ******* you ******* *******
  4. What's the best way to accumulate a food surplus in DST? I've been playing on a server with some friends, and we tried several strategies that rapidly depleted: 6 farms of dragonfruit near a frog field -supposedly after I left the server that day winter hit, and two out of 4 people who originally set up the base barely made it through winter. 2 beeboxes and about 8 berry bushes -beeboxes took too long to set up, due to difficulties getting silk. -berrybushes...aren't that useful, we had more, but they were unfertilized. Koalefant hunting-with someone constantly hunting koalefants, we got a fairly decent rate of meat coming in...that soon stopped because the hunter left. most of the meat was converted to jerky. Any ideas? Tips? Strategies for food rationing?
  5. I've never really spent much time refining my base and prettying it up before, so today I made a server specifically for the purpose of building an awesome base. I picked Wickerbottom so I could get an early start and spent the first few days exploring, eventually settling on a spot between a bunch of frog ponds and a savanna with plenty of rabbits and beefalo. However, now that I've picked the spot I find myself kind of overwhelmed. I was just wondering if anyone had good tips for a cool looking, functional base. Even just posting some screen shots for inspiration would be great. Thanks in advance!
  6. Hello friends, as a complete and total noob when it comes to RP; I would like to start one up, as practice is the best way to get good at this type of thing. (also as a crude attempt to make friends) I'm a big lame butt when it comes to RP setting ideas, So perchance we RP our current avatar's characters in the DS universe? (there's probably going to be an entire army of Wilsons running around) again Im just a beginner when it comes to this so if a more experienced person could help kick this off that would be the best I literally have no clue what I am doing and have no clue how this is supposed to work out PLEASE HELP (the bird in my avatar name is Napkin btw uvu) *THIS RP IS NOT ACCEPTING NEW MEMBERS*

  9. I decided to use the oft mentioned but rarely applied forum search feature to create a compilation of previous threads dedicated to various strategies and tips in the game.

  10. Bug Submission Please choose a category [Gameplay] Platform [*]Steam Version Number - Issue title Metal Potato Thingy is in the Ocean... Help! Steps to reproduce Use Hammer on Chest items fly out items fall into ocean. Describe your issue Hi, I had collected all the parts to make the Portal to another world. While I was attempting to free some bag space I accidentally dropped the Metal Potato thingy and it went into the Ocean. I have no way of getting it out, and it doesn't seem to despawn. Does the Map spawn more than one of the ' Metal Potato thingy ' or am I screwed?
  11. what if Maxwell is Wilson's father or uncle or some important male father-figure type role, and he either hates Wilson (because he did something bad, for which he is now being punished) or surviving is some right of passage for the alchemist. that would be a twist... lol any other good theories/ideas?

  14. Tip: In beggining of the game easier way to KILL(not catch) bunnies - if you have noticed that every(as far as i know) bunny has it's own hole, so if you know in which hole bunny will run, you can go in direction from that hole to bunny(you should as well click "attack" on him, the bunny(no matter what) will run towards the hole, and you caracter will get a hit on it. If you want, you can post your own tips and tricks!

  17. Bug Submission Please choose a category [Gameplay] Platform Steam Version Number - Issue title Make 1 Infinite Tourch. Steps to reproduce Switched Tourch faster than the percent counter. I was able to have the same tourch for 6 days/nights doing this. Describe your issue -[infinite Tourch]- The bug is simple to do. And this way it is really simple to abuse. Having your inventory full is best way to do it. -Have your inventory full with 1 Tourch and ATLEAST 1 tool or wep. Place the tool in your Hand place [Where you normally place tools and tourches.] Then you place the tourch as close to the hand icon as possible. [The next inventory plot.] -[Press the inventory plot RAPIDLY while moving]- -This will have the tourch in a stasis it will not be able to count percentage of your Tourch. You will not be killed by the darkness due to getting lightsource pretty often. /[PLEASE DO NOT ABUSE THIS BUG. EVEN THOUGHT IT IS NOT THAT BIG OF A BUG]\ Thank you for reading. I hope this will be fixed. (I Dont mind having it in the game. Just looks like free materials every night.)
