When game releases, do i need to start a new game for RoG+SW, or i can somehow continue my RoG savegame and start SW?

 

you'll have to make a new world, you can't edit already created ones

I'm not the only one concerned with how little communication there is between devs and players here am I? Aside from serious bugs seems like our resident Cappy dev isn't replying to anything, we have no roadmap and despite a little over a week now passing since launch there's been no Updates to Shipwrecked that I've seen. Maybe I'm just spoiled with the communcation we've had in the past with Klei's devs with the base game, RoG and DST but this is kind of making me more nervous than hyped.

Tis the holiday season! give em some space I think they're working their butts off and just because they don't reply doesn't mean they don't look at it.

I am really amazed at how much content this DLC has added; I mean it is quintuple the size of RoG.

 

I just wonder when we will receive word on Through the Ages...

Guys, if you launch Shipwrecked on consoles (in this case, Wii U) can you give it for free to all the people that bought the game before you launch it?

Let me see if I understood you correctly... You're asking if you can have shipwrecked for free because you have the original game?

I got a question, I was playing shipwrecked as walani and i was on day 13. the hounds came, but before they spawned something else did. and the pigs turned hostile, and i thought it was the hounds but i was being hit by literally nothing. when the pigs landed hits the sound the invisible creature made was a horrifying screech. my question is, is this a bug or is it a real creature? if so what can i do to prevent it from spawning or protect myself from it? thanks.

Last night, I had a dream where I was surrounded by birds and one of the birds was large and had the face of a dog. Thanks Klei!

Do I have to purchase this if I already have the game?

Yes, Shipwrecked is a paid DLC currently in Early-Access, as you might or might not have noticed.

You can check it out (and maybe even buy it if you want) on its Steam Page (Assuming you have the Steam version of Don't Starve): Right here! In this clickable sentence!

In the new DLC there are new seasons, but in RoG there are also different seasons, if I play RoG w/Shipwrecked What Seasons Will Be Active and can I change it?

Hey there @Blakest, welcome to the forums!

Well, vanilla Don't Starve has 2 seasons: Summer and Winter.

RoG has 2 more seasons: Autumn and Spring.

RoG basically transforms the vanilla's Don't Starve Summer season into Autumn, and makes a completely new Summer season.

Shipwrecked has also 4 seasons, although they have different names and features, they kind of remind us of the RoG season: Mild season (Autumn), Hurricane season (Winter), Monsoon season (Spring), Dry season (Summer).

Right now, a portal to transport you from RoG/Vanilla worlds to Shipwrecked doesn't exist. You either play Vanilla with or without RoG, or you make an only Shipwrecked world. So for now, RoG items won't be seeing any Shipwrecked territory. And its biomes and mobs probably never will, since I don't think Klei/Capy will merge that DLCs contents into the Shipwrecked world (Except items as already mentioned, of course).

I hope that helped and you could understand it. Feel free to ask any other questions you might have!

Why do you ignore alot of our ideas? 

Why didn't you give yourself more time to make shipwrecked? 

Why are the oceans so empty?
