"Stuck in the Middle with Ewe" -- Don't Starve Together Closed Beta Update 2

Recommended Posts




Update 2: Stuck in the Middle with Ewe - 119097


New Stuff

  • Survival Mode: when all players are dead a timer starts. When the timer is up, the world automatically resets and generates a new world using the same settings. Living players lose sanity based on the number of dead players.

  • Jury-Rigged Portal.

  • Hunting alone may not be a good idea.

  • Wendy finally got out of that portal.

  • Search Servers: search filter added. Search looks for server names and tags (separate with commas for multiple queries).

  • Tags: servers now have tags. A few tags are auto-populated based on the settings on the server creation screen. Mods can add additional tags.

  • Friends-Only: makes your server only joinable by people on your Steam Friends list.

  • LAN/Offline Mode: made explicit the difference between LAN/offline servers and online servers. Offline save games cannot be played online and online games cannot be played offline.

  • Steam Workshop enabled.

  • Automatic Mod Handling: download and enable mods being used on a server when joining. Locally-enabled server-side mods that are not on the server will be disabled when joining (and re-enabled after disconnecting). These apply to mods with the “all_clients_require_mod” flag set to true. Mods with that flag set to false will not be downloaded and will not be disabled when joining.

  • Mod Uploader: support for Don’t Starve Together. Uploader can now target both Don't Starve and Don't Starve Together.



  • Items with the “nonpotatoable” tag (i.e. things that can’t be taken through the Teleportato) will now drop from your inventory when you disconnect.

  • Telltale Heart recipe, health penalty, and description changed.

  • WX-78 will now lose his upgrades on death and drop a random number of gears based on his level.

  • Server name is now limited to 80 characters.

  • Account creation now uses the embedded Steam overlay browser.

  • Reduce network data for sound events.

  • Log file will now display more info when dumping a stack trace.

  • AddAction and AddComponentAction changed to work with multiple mods.

  • Game now pauses on a Lua assert.

  • Removed LuaSocket (for mod safety).

  • Improved sandboxing (for mod safety).


Bug Fixes

  • Resurrection health penalties are now saved correctly.

  • Fires started by Willow’s low sanity can now be seen by all clients.

  • Announcements now use the correct player colors.

  • Fixed inconsistent behaviour when spamming attack controls.

  • Fixed occasional hang on world load when it is raining.

  • Fixed LAN characters sometimes not resuming properly.

  • Unjoinable servers will no longer appear in the server list.

  • Fixed various components not going to sleep when their entity goes to sleep.

  • Optimized networking code sleepcheck.

  • All “logging in” strings moved to strings.lua.

  • Fixed issue with crashes that occurred in coroutines not being correctly handled.

  • Fixed issue where hound wave could start immediately if the world was started and ticked without any player spawned.

  • Fixed sanity animations on server.


These are the hotfix notes since the last update:


Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue causing Don’t Starve Together to occasionally crash when loading into a world.




  • The “Manage Bans” screen has become the Server Administration screen

  • Improve meteor shower tuning (less stuff will accrue over time, which will reduce performance issues)

  • Add support for mod chars in playerbadge and targetindicator

  • Player bans are now persistent rather than being cleared on shutdown. They can be managed through a new screen accessible from the server hosting screen, or by editing blocklist.txt (in the save folder) directly.

Hunting alone may not be a good idea.


What does it mean?


Maybe a hostile mob (possibly Hounds) will spawn and pursue you if they see a lone adventurer, as he would most likely be an easier target. Or maybe, in less spectacular fashion, just a damage nerf.

When I read the "hunting alone may not be a good idea" note, I immediately thought of the Varg.  But looking through what others have posted already, I guess I was wrong.


Also, I do not know why but the gif of the Ewecus makes me think of this

Wilson: you have a cold?

Ewecus: no I am just allergic to you.


Cannot wait to find this thing, and see what is so dangerous about it..............the hard way XD
