  1. Had same issue here when I was running Catalina 10.15.6. Now that I've installed 10.15.7, I don't even get a crash window, the game just starts running for a few seconds and then stops with no visual indicators.
  2. Main branch works fine, but the Forgotten Knowledge beta always crashes instantly on OSX (10.15.6). I have tried deleting the old save files in Klei/DoNotStarveTogetherReturnOfThemBeta, figuring the issue might be incompatibility with the new unlimited save format, but so far the problem remains.
  3. I was aware of this, but I assumed it was intentional to curb the otherwise-rampant bonus DPS of the tentacles. Even one pair of tentacle swipes per 5 strikes raises effective damage per hit of the club from 59.5 to 73.1, higher than the morning star on wet targets. Three pairs of swipes would raise them above blow darts. Walter's Cursed Rounds summon tentacles every other hit, instead of every 5 hits, raising their effective damage per hit from 51 to 85. Multiple pairs of swipes would raise this damage much faster than it would raise the thulecite club's, since they summon tentacles much more frequently; a single extra pair of swipes would raise it to 119.
  4. I think it's different people making each argument. I didn't react in the forums much to Rework 1.0 because I was testing her in-game during my free hours the whole week, and had no time left to type up all of my thoughts here. I see the irony though : 3
  5. I don't consider low HP to be a big risk factor, especially since it was something players could opt into rather than something they were compelled to do by force. If you didn't like being at low HP, you could make do with 20 DPS Abigail. It was still reasonably friendly to new players. The issue with Rework 1.0, for me, was that Abigail was not actually "a Dark Sword ghost" at 1hp. She did 60 damage per second to single targets and 52 in an AOE. The dark sword does ~136 damage to single targets, because player attack period is twice as fast as Abigail's and it does 68 damage per hit. Those were the numbers I was expecting when Klei announced their planned changes a couple weeks ago, but the damage we got was much lower. I was imagining that a 1hp Wendy would yield something like a 100dps Abigail, and I was prepared to hover around 16-21hp for a ~90dps Abigail while still keeping a little above the threshold where I could be one-shot. Even so, I thought the low-HP bonus had the most potential of the announced new mechanics, and I am very sad to see it gone in Rework 2.0 rather than simply increased. I do like the support mechanic of Abigail shredding enemy defenses for 1.1x bonus from all sources in Rework 2.0 though, I hope that is preserved. Wendy main of many years here. I really liked the low HP mechanic in principle, even though I felt the amount of damage gained was too small. My instinct would be to keep the low HP mechanic, the allied damage buff, and the day/night cycle buff, and have them be small individually but stack multiplicatively. Give people options while preserving risk/reward. In any case I'm happy that Klei listens to feedback and that the discussion is passionate. It was never going to be easy to please everyone but I hope my two cents are of some value as Wendy continues being tweaked.
  6. There is no prompt to ignite Winona's GEMerator with a torch, even though it is flammable. The prompt appears with a Fire Staff equipped, and it appears for the torch on other flammable structures. The GEMerator can still smolder and ignite from nearby fires. Only the specific GEMerator/torch combo is barred. Winona's nitre generator is unaffected, and can be ignited with a torch normally.
  7. This issue seems to have resolved, I can't reproduce it anymore and the Elite Pigs now attack at my direction fine. Don't know what the issue was before.
  8. I might be missing something here, but the Elite Pigs summoned with Clout Snouts are completely ignoring my targets and then disappearing after a few seconds.
  9. Oh wow, yeah they definitely should not tolerate you being that close to the house.
  10. I believe this is normal Merm behavior, and intentional. Prior to Wurt's release, Merms were only hostile to players if a) they were homeless, or b) the player approached too close to their home. A player encountering a Merm wandering naturally, but keeping a respectful neighborly distance from the Merm's Rundown House, should not draw aggro. Do the Merms continue to act neutrally under either of the above conditions?
  11. If an application requires additional permissions to run properly on OSX, it will generally detect that when the application first attempts to search for other files, and prompt the user to give or deny those permissions automatically. There may be some differences on Catalina though. Quite a bit has changed, and I am still adjusting as well.
  12. @bizziboi @Hadouken1023 After playing around a bit with Full Access, I solved the problem! My application now reads all of my old data again, including my wardrobe presets and old settings. I believe the problem earlier was that I was mistakenly giving Full Access to an alias of the application, rather than to the application that Steam interfaces with directly. It began to function normally again after I removed Full Access to the aliases and instead gave Full Access to "dontstarve_steam", as Files and Folders did. Hope this helps others on Catalina experiencing similar issues.
