Because DS and DST are meant to be different games with different content.

Except they’re really not..?

DST is labeled as a Stand Alone expansion to DS. Therefore- It could and should be compatible with SOME SW and Hamlet themed content.

In fact- Klei is even adding Shipwrecked content to DST as we speak with these Return of Them updates, so there’s that..

(Wobster & Wobster Dens come from SW)

Theres also the fact that Outside of Shipwrecked, the Adventures Mode Chapter The Game is Afoot spawns Palm Tree’s and Palm Tree Guardians.

And no that content does not clash with the atmosphere of DST.. because DST is from the same atmosphere as DS single player.

Now there ARE some noticeable differences- Such as the Palm Trees Dont Sway in the Wind like they do in SW, and they are placed on Grassy Turf instead of a Sandy Beach.. But Palm Tree, Palm Tree Guardian, Palm Leaf and those annoying head conking coconuts!!!  Do very much exist outside of the DLC add on.

Not only that.. but they look absolutely beautiful covered in Snow or in deep rain. <3

Now the REAL question is how much of that content can they realistically add to DST?

I’m not buying the whole glitch thing, sorry just can’t, If it’s a glitch it’s a fun one that should never be patched out that’s still 100% perfectly playable, more importantly if it was a Game Breaking glitch like the Xbox One exclusive Winters Feast Dreaded Xbox console tragic torch skin crash.. it would have been fixed by now, but it hasn’t. And they even updated Solo DS just the other day for Beefalo taming and Craftable fences, released Hamlet, and a patch- Yet still the Palm Tree Biomes are there.

-shrugs- I like them.. I don’t know why everyone’s hating on a few Palm Trees.

Honestly, I wanna see new and exciting stuff added to DST, and not the old DLCs that I've seen a thousand times before. I would rather Klei works on new stuff, instead of spending time making the DLCs compatible with DST

Ah yes, adding popular fish recipes and the equivalent to a crab into DST is obvious that they are attempting the merge the two. There isn't really all that much from Shipwreck into DST. With the exceptions of Wobsters and fish dishes, there is practically no content from Shipwreck in DST. There is still none of the constantly asked content in DST like Coffee, Swordfish (and proceeding Cutlass), Quacken, Characters, Coffee, Ice Makers, Lottery Slots, and Coffee are still not in the game despite people demanding and making mods to add them. Yes you are right, but in the smallest way possible. Adding Surf n Turf and Seafood Gumbo was not intrusive to the game as it doesn't conflict with the normality of the game as they actually fit, however things like palm trees and volcano don't fit because they are not a natural apart of the "Lonely Forest" environment. Yes, with the sea being added, there could be a verity of new original islands, but the bottom line still stands that tropical things don't belong in a non-tropical environment and thus a large majority of the content in Shipwreck wouldn't fit in DST.

That's a glitch because the game runs on spaghetti code. It's still fun to play, but it still runs on spaghetti code. There is so many glitches (like using the telportato in RoG a or Hamlet still resetting the volcano in Shipwreck) that have yet to be patched out and unused content that is in the game that it is a little baffling.

Yup, RoG is the exact same as  DST, not Shipwreck. I might be wrong but I read somewhere that Shipwreck was meant to be a entirely separate game from RoG, and thus weren't suppose to be mixed at all.

Nobody was saying that they didn't, but we are saying that it doesn't fit the natural world of DST. It's like putting a lobster in the middle of the desert, it could be there and might survive being there, but there would be no reason for it to be there then to appease or "just because". 

All of it, but they still wouldn't since fit and would devalue single player.

I hope they never add coffee...

Just because you like the Adventure Mode temperate biome palm trees and there have been other bug fixes since they appeared doesn't mean they're not a glitch. If giving players access to coconuts was intentional, as it is in Hamlet where you can buy them at the grocery store, then why doesn't it unlock any coconut-based crafting recipes like the ones available there? Or allow you to craft machetes so you can split and eat the coconut? The Coconade, at least, has the potential to be useful in Adventure Mode and uses no other SW-exclusive ingredients. Instead, the misplaced palm trees are functionally near-identical to evergreens, albeit slightly more dangerous.

The programmers on the Don't Starve team don't have infinite time and attention, so they have to prioritise fixing the worst bugs first (and once they discover a bug they have to figure out why it's happening, which also takes time and attention, before they can fix it), and it can take quite a long time to get around to harmless bugs that don't crash your game or corrupt your save or even really mess with the balance. That doesn't mean the developers want them to be there.

imagine the programming nightmare to get all that stuff working in multiplayer

No.

No one ever asked for ALL of it, a couple palm trees, a few coconuts, chance of Palm Tree Guardian (Aka the only ranged projectile throwing tree guardian that would exist within DST)

There is a very clear and very recognizable difficulty decrease between exploring the world of DS single player, and exploring the world of DST.. 

Furthermore PC players tend to treat DS and DS Reign of Giants, and DS Shipwrecked, and DS Hamlet and DST as their own little games completely separated from one another, where as on Xbox One- Only ONE version of DS has ever existed.. and it’s included Reign of Giants content as a default vanilla part of the experience ever since the games release.

 

So which is it.... is Reign of Giants it’s own little thing? Or was it part of the game from the very beginning?

the ONLY one of those that is the exception is DST which actually WAS sold Separately as it’s own quote “Stand alone Multiplayer expansion to the single player game.”

Stand Alone means you don’t have to actually own DS single player to play DST, You DO have to own DS single player to play Shipwrecked or Hamlet as those are considered as DLC add on’s for the single player game and Not stand alone expansions.

However... over on Mobile Smartphones both DS Reign of Giants and DS Shipwrecked ARE Sold as their own Stand Alone games..

So again I ask which is it? Additional content you had to pay for? Or content that’s always been Stand Alone?

You guys want to confuse react all my posts I’m finally going to give you one WORTH Confuse Reacting.

Reign of Giants including playable characters Webber and Wigfrid for PC as well as the early days of Playstation was sold as their own completely separate add on packs.

Reign of Giants on Mobile, Xbox One or Nintendo have always been a default completely free version of every version of the game we’ve ever been able to purchase.

Shipwrecked on Consoles is an Expansion requiring you to own DS Single Player to play, But on Mobile you don’t need to also own DS to play the Shipwrecked app.. and over on PC through the power of Mods and by Klei’s Approval, PC players can play this content for Free without having to buy the expansion packs to even play them.

Now- on Xbox and PlayStation Consoles when you buy Shipwrecked and Hamlet dlc add ons you buy those separately for the single player game but you can enable DLC COMPATIBILITY which- Is a fancy word for adds small traces of those DLC add on’s Content into your Existing world.

Never the FULL Experience, just smaller stuff here and there- Aka... Return of Them Wobster and Wobster Den.

 Now it’s time for those confused face  reacts-
 

If you buy this game on a NINTENDO CONSOLE then by default- you will already own Reign of giants AND Shipwrecked content as a core part of your game that IS NOT Sold separately.. 

https://www.nintendo.com/games/detail/dont-starve-nintendo-switch-edition/

Therefore- And this is my final say on this entire subject- If Klei WANTED TO they could TOTALLY add Shipwrecked Content to DST and this would not KILL the sales of Single Player DS because depending on which Platform VERSION of DS you bought.... Shipwrecked has, was and always will be a core part of your game.

And for all anyone outside of Klei Studios knows... They could plan to re-release DS (again) bundled with DS, RoG, DS Shipwrecked, DS Hamlet and DST all in the same package, And discontinue the old versions of the game.

A case that Undead Labs recently did not but a few months ago when they upgraded their game to the JUGGERNAUT EDITION (giving everyone who didn’t buy the DLC Content add on’s the content I paid for for FREE) and discontinued the old version.

Then again... if Klei authorized the approval of allowing PC players to use a mod and play that content without needing to buy that content... they’ve practically allowed that content to be free already (although currently exclusively to PC players through the power of mods)

I mod in coffee for luls. It's fun seeing the cast run like the Roadrunner. Same with Ganja mod. All it's missing is the pink pupils after they smoke.:wilson_ecstatic:

Shipwrecked also developed by another company: CAPY Games, The same reason why ReForge mod content can not be official, Klei cant just take stuffs form another devs for free and add to their game.

Capybara Games and KLei had some contractual obligations and prerogatives - thus, being in the same DS/T brand, elements or entire aspects of SW could be added to DST in theory; also a certain quality is assured following those collaborative contracts. While your pointed mod (ReForged) numbers a healthy amount of bugs, enough to have some hefty chunk of them players crashing quite often when using it. Comparing the 2 (official DLC and a game-mode mod) isn't actually an adequate quality parallel, as KLei had 0 input in that mod's development (and of course 0 responsibility regarding mentioned crashes/quality) - only "officially recognized its existence".

Newly released Hamlet on Xbox One was ported to Xbox by a company I’m guessing is called Lab 42? So there’s Capybara, Lab 42, Klei.

I recall Klei mentioning that they hired more people specifically for improving the quality of the console versions of the game, so.. maybe this Lab 42 is a partner company to Klei?

Im not sure how all that technical stuff works.. what I DO KNOW is that Take-Two (2K) is a parent company to Rockstar games- Which means Their income isn’t pulled off GTA & RDR alone, but rather Anything with the Rockstar or 2K logo on it- Including Borderlands, NBA Live, etc.

I have to have mad respect for Lab 42.. because I been begging Klei for Hamlet to come to console for years!!!
