[Bug Report] No wormhole on first island in The Archipelago

Recommended Posts

I tried playing Adventure mode but when I go to the Archipelago level, I explore the first island that I'm on completely but there's no wormhole to be found anywhere.  I've scoured the map view to see whether it was hidden under a spider nest or something but I can't find it at all!  I died and restarted Adventure mode and went back to the Archipelago level again but encountered the same thing--no wormhole to any of the other islands.  I figured the first time I encountered this issue, it might have just been a map glitch...no biggie I'll just restart.  However, the second time it happened, I'm worried that this is a bug in the current version of the game.

I've played Adventure mode on another tablet (Galaxy Tab S2) and the wormholes were there.  But that was a while ago with an earlier version of the game...

Anybody else see this issue?

I don't know if it matters, but I was playing Wilson and I chose a NON-RoG game because I wanted a simpler Survival sandbox so I could jump into Adventure Mode more quickly.

As an aside, just for fun, I tried to see how long I could survive on the one island given the resources that were there.  I survived into the 20+ day mark but got careless and was killed by a shadow creature.  If I had been more methodical/patient I would have probably have been able to survive longer.

Food: I could get all the food I needed by picking up the fish and frog legs from merm/tentacle fights.  I got some tasty meat with the occasional Koalefant hunt where I could drive it into a tentacle and have it take care of the animal for me.  In winter, the pengulls could also be driven into tentacles to allow me to harvest meat and drumsticks.

Health: With all of the spiders being killed by tentacles, I found plenty of spider glands to heal me up if I got bitten or whacked while running around the swamp.

Sanity: I eventually ran out of flowers to pick or turn into a garland.  I resigned myself to slowly going insane and having to fight nightmare creatures.  However, the swamp was littered with tentacle spikes due to the countless battles going on and so I found myself able to fight off the nightmare creatures without too much trouble.  Admittedly I got into a bind with two Terrorbeaks rushing me at the same time at night around a campfire, but I was able to survive that at least once.

Light/fire : I could probably last until all of the flint ran out and I couldn't cut down any more trees for firewood.  Even then, I think I could probably have extended my life by making a bunch of torches and seeing if I could survive the night with those as well as lighting the swamp trees.  Or else try to light a really big bonfire and keep it burning as long as possible while trying to scavenge the island for goodies.

Warmth : Wilson's beard kept me warm even after winter set in.

The other thing I was relying on was all of the tentacles to keep killing spiders and merms but it just occurred to me that those would run out too as spiders/merms respawn from their nests/houses while tentacles do not, I believe.  Anyway, it was an interesting academic exercise and I wanted to make 100% sure that I wasn't just missing the wormhole anywhere.  I covered the ground of that island many, many times and never saw anything.

Me too, it never shows up or maybe it's just when it's the first level? Feels like Klei has abandone Don't Starve: Pocket Edition for some bug fixes because there's still alot.

I played another game with RoG enabled to see if it would make any difference.  Unfortunately, the result was the same.  No wormhole on the first island of the Archipelago in this game mode either.

I've got a Galaxy tab A, model number:SM-T515, Samsung.

I've got the same problem tried it at least 5 times if its a 1 time thing only its happens always nearly impossible to beat the game with this bug, try e-mailing the develepers because they might not check these forums so they dont know about the bugs. The more people report this bug the faster they fix it.

Don't Starve PE just updated on my tablet and in the changelog it says that they fixed this problem!

I'm starting a new game now to test it out.  Here's hoping for the best!
