Dapperknight

(BUG) Lost a whole world to...darkness?!?

Recommended Posts

So, I was playing Reign of Giants early access. I've been playing Reign of Giants since it's early access on steam, and have been experimenting with different characters to see how they fared against the new features. I had a particularly good world as WX-78, I was in and out of the ruins by day 40! I had full upgrades and all was great...until I got to the surface. When I got to the surface, it was permanent night! Nothing I tried, like spending a day back in the caves, going into maxwell's door and suiciding worked! I ended up having to delete the world and start fresh....Needless to say, I was aggrivated with the whole experience. I think Klei is a great company, and Don't Starve is one of my favorite games I've played, but please patch these major glitches.

Okay, I was about to make a post about this also. Been happening to me as well, trying to do a cave only playthrough

 

upper right hand side, total darkness

Read the other thread, you can fix it with the console for now. If you're feeling up to it you can also comment out a line of the game code that will prevent it from happening again, hopefully they'll roll that fix in soon.

 

Here's the fix from the thread:

 
  1. Open the console (backtick-tilde key `/~)
  2. Type: GetSeasonManager():SetSegs({day=8, dusk=4, night=4}, {day=6, dusk=5, night=5}, {day=8, dusk=4, night=4}, {day=11, dusk=3, night=2})
  3. Hit enter, remove console from screen (ctrl+L), and play!

It's a long command, so I'd recommend writing it down so you can double-check (alt-tabbing messes up the console).

Sure would be nice if we could cut/past into the console...

But I need Houndius Shootius to survive.

You can't craft it anyway: the deerclops don't drop his eye anymore, until the next patch I think, so...when this bug will be solved.

The devs said you can craft it with an eyebrella.

Yes you can, for now you can craft it with a eyebrella. I've looked at the houndius shootius and it does indeed require a eyebrella for one of the items needed.
