      UPDATED - Studio Note & Rhymes with Play Streams Temporarily Canceled.   03/06/2020

      UPDATE (3/19/20): Just a quick note regarding the team at Klei Entertainment. As noted previously, everybody at Klei Entertainment is working from home due to the Covid-19 outbreak. Many of us have been working especially hard to help maintain operations as we all move out of the office and into our homes and with everything being done online, extra time must be spent in organizing conversations and trying to maintain communication. As some of you may know, we have a very open office and we are almost always in contact with each other as we go about our days. Some of us work across multiple teams and that work has become a bit more challenging for everybody.   That being said, at this time the transition has not caused any major disruption in our operations, but it would be overly optimistic to expect that we won't have any delays at all. We're going to have to be especially mindful about this in the coming weeks and make sure we don't take on too much work so we can keep things running smoothly.  We will let you know as we see how these changes affect our timelines.  Thanks UPDATE (3/10/20):
      The test yesterday went well. We got the whole office (mostly) to work from home without significant issue. As a result, Klei Staff that can work from home have been asked to do so until further notice.  This means that we will have to cancel the Rhymes with Play stream until we are all back in the office. This shouldn't affect anything else at least in the short term, but if things change I will update you all here.  Original Post: Hey everybody,  This Tuesday March 10th, 2020 the entire staff at Klei will be working remotely for 1 day in an effort to prepare the studio to work remotely for a little while if the need arises.  Klei is already set up pretty well to allow for working remotely, however we are going to have a one day "dry run" with the whole studio so that we can identify and avoid any issues or downtime that may arise should choose to implement a work from home policy due to COVID-19 outbreak concerns. Unfortunately this does mean that we will be canceling the “Rhymes with Play” Art stream this coming Tuesday, however unless the situation changes we expect everything at the studio to be back to normal Wednesday and we’ll continue our regular stream schedule Thursday March 12th. If the situation changes at all, we'll let you know. Thanks for your understanding.

Stinky in Here

Have you ever had an ice box full of nearly spoiled food and didnt know, what to do?

Just throw it on ur new fancy compost pile and get extra poop!

This new compost pile (requested here: http://forums.kleientertainment.com/topic/30589-mod-request-compost-piles/) can turn veggies, meals, twigs, grass, seeds and lot more into poop. You dont have to run to your beefalo-plains to find poop, you can generate it by yourself!


  • Rotting veggies, fruits, eggs, meals, grass, twigs, cones, flowers, mushrooms and seeds (mandrakes, too :-))
  • Dropping 1-4 Poop after a few days (~1.5-10 days) with given criterias (amount of stuff, spoilage ..)
  • Burnable with 0-3 ash (amount ~poopamount)
  • Probability of fireflies (usual: 2%, 90% in a specific case)
  • Design: ~Farm + fancy poop-flies, New UI(5 Slots)
  • Tech-Category: Food (Science Machine needed)
  • 6xRocks 3xPoop 4xLogs

Future changes:

  • Custom minimap icon (possible?)

Special thanks to @Malacath for the great support!

Balance and Variables:

  • Butterfly Wings (.5, 1) SHINY
  • Twigs, Pinecone, Seeds (.25)
  • Cut Grass, Rot, Evil Petals (.5)
  • Petals (.5, .5) SHINY
  • Butterflymuffin, Dragon Pie, Fist of Jam, Fruit Medley, Mandrake Soup, Powder Cake, Pumpkin Cookie, Ratatouille, Taffy, Unagi, Waffles, Wet Goop (1.5)
  • Bacon & Eggs, Fish Tacos, Fish Sticks, Froggle Bunwich, Honey Ham, Honey Nuggets, Kabobs, Meatballs, Bone Stew, Monster Lasagna, Perogies, Turkey Dinner (1.75)


  1. If you reach a shiny value of at least 3.0 you get 2 poop and 95% prob of fireflies spawning after harvesting. (4 days)
  2. If you reach a value of more than 5.0 (5.0 is not enough), you receive 3 poop and 5% probability of fireflies spawning (2.2 days).
  3. If you reach a value of more than 3.0 (3.0 is not enough), you receive 2 poop and 5% probability of fireflies spawning (2 days).
  4. Else: you receive 1 poop and 5% probability of fireflies spawning after harvesting. (3 days)


  1. If you compost some food which let you gain at least 4 poop (recipe+rottyness bonus (4.)), the compost pile develops fertile soil. (This is a durable status (until the pile gets burnt))
  2. If you have spoilable food, you receive a bonus on the composting time. Factor = 0.5 + (totalSpoilage / (2*spoiledFoodCount)). Example: 5 berries are half spoiled (50%=0.5). totalSpoilage = 5 * 0.5 = 2.5. spoiledFoodCount = 5 --> Factor = 0.5 + (2.5 / 10) = 0.75. Therefore the composttime is reduced by 25%
  3. If you have fertile soil (see 1.), the composttime is reduced by 10% (If your reduced composttime (2.) is 20%, the complete reduction will be 28% (0.8*0.9))
  4. If you compost some food which has an average spoilage of lower than 33% (this is nearly red), you receive one extra poop on harvesting. (rottyness bonus)

The composting time bonuses can summarize to an - asymptotic - maximum of 0.5*0.9 = 0.45


If you burn the pile and it was done, you will receive the amount of poop you'd received by harvesting plus 1. (Large recipe with 3xpoop will drop 4xash)

Piles that are empty or are rotting at the moment wont drop ash.
