Don't Starve Together Patch 2.06 - 3/11/2021 (PlayStation 4)

Hey everybody.

We're back with another QOL update, this update contains some changes to world options, they have been split into two categories, world settings (things affect the world after it has been generated), and world generation options (things that affect world generation). By default, saving and loading presets will work as before, or can choose to unlink the world settings and generation options and manage their presets separately. If you host a dedicated server, the method for applying world options is unchanged and will continue to work just fine.

Changes

  • All beefalo costumes are now unlocked outside of the Year of the Beefalo event.
  • Containers can now be opened by multiple players at the same time.
  • World settings (things that affect game behavior after the world has been generated) can now be changed after a world has been generated.
  • The preset menu has been overhauled to allow custom presets to be named.
  • Added over 20 new world generation options.
  • Added over 60 new world settings.
  • The server commands menu (eg. roll back, regenerate the world, etc) is now accessible via the "Server Commands" button in the not-a-pause pause menu.
  • The player listing screen (scoreboard) can now also be accessed via the not-a-pause pause menu.
  • Added world settings to assist players when joining someone's server. These settings should only have an impact on public servers. If you are locally hosting your own private world that only you and some friends play on, your experience will not be affected.
    • Extra Starting Resources. New players joining a world after day 10 will start with a few extra resources to make up for the starting area being most likely picked clean. 
    • Seasonal Starting Items. New players joining a world that is not in autumn will receive a basic seasonal clothing item to help them survive long enough to get started.
    • Spawn Protection. When a player spawns in, if there are too many structures near the spawn point or if there are hostile creatures, the player will gain a temporary buff that allows them to walk through structures and prevents them from being targeted.
    • Drop Items on Despawn. Sets whether a player will drop only irreplaceable items or drop all their items when they leave the server.
  • Ice now floats.
  • Lesser Glow Berries now have a different animation on the ground.
  • Fixed a bug causing birchnut trees to update when they shouldn't.

More Victorian Skins!
The gang's all here! The rest of the survivors get the Victorian treatment in the Latecomers' Victorian Chest for or you can get the Complete Victorian chest. I don't know about you, but I need that Wortox skin, like now.

New Login Bonuses!
We have a new login bonus for you. The worm Riddled Chest contains the Snaggletooth Wormhole, Lureplant Wormhole, Arachnoid Wormhole and Glow Berry Bush skins just for logging in to the game.

And this week's Klei Rewards link!
Twitch drops are still on Hiatus but hopefully, we'll have some news pretty soon about their return. But for now, have 1700 points and get something cool. (Link expires on 3/18/2021)

And that's it for now. 
We're not quite ready to show you what we're working on just yet, but we will post something as soon as we've got something ready. Until then, have fun out there!

Check out the original forum post for more details.

Hello everybody

First of all, thank you very much for the really great update!

Unfortunately I still have one problem: Some time ago I started a new world in which I switched off the meteor fields. The world is awesome and only after I invested a lot in the world (over 1000 days) did I notice that without meteors I have no access to moonstones and can therefore for example not change my character via the Celestrial Portal etc.

Now I can turn the meteors on again, but they still don't appear in my world because unfortunately, I can no longer switch on the meteor fields. Is there a possibility to bring meteor showers back even if you turned meteor field off? Unfortunately, it's really frustrating for me

All crafting recipes can be repeated by double clicking and holding the crafting button.

I was really sad when I didn't find this on our patch note... but, then I realized we actually did get it!! and it's really amazing QoL, like a huge one for base builders! the mass amount of items with the annoying constant clicking is GONE!

Thanks Klei, thank you so much <3

And we actually got 'more' setting for resources, which is an amazing addition for console. Even tho from my testing of 1 world, I was hoping for a bigger impact, talking reeds and cactus in particular. It needs more testing, but I'm still happy we got it.

Turning off pengulls, birds and bats in my megaworld is a just gift from God.

My game is almost unplayable right now, huge amounts of lag and I keep getting stuck in infinite loops of opening chester, lagging and walking backwards and various other actions. I didn't change anything except fishes and bosses to more so not sure why its going so crazy :(

 

and now im stuck in a loop of opening and closing the same wooden gate over and over again, cannot break out of it had to disconnect

Use the circle button to break free until this is fixed, I also noticed if I slow down a bit and make sure my actions are smooth it doesn't happen anymore.

That has nothing to do with the bug.  At one point there were several spiders on the screen, and the character kept locking on, moving toward, and attacking various ones, all (while hitting 0), I was trying to move away.  The same thing happens at base where the character will keep moving to try to open the fridge, even though I'm fighting with the controller to move the character the other way.  When you're on a mostly empty screen, it's fine.  And it has NOTHING to do with hitting the 0 to unlock.  As it stands, the game is unplayable on my PS4.

Sorry it's worse for you, I can't say I'm having that same experience..  Mostly happening for me going in and out of gates but I'm able to break free of it.
