  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. They didn’t listen to this Wendy main, I said to leave her be : P There was no stopping this, though. Gotta rip the band-aid off sometime. Maybe I’ll even like it. This is the first piece of RoT content that I’m really anxious about though, if they change her as extensively as they changed Woodie then I’m gonna be sad. Just make Abby prioritize the Woven Shadows over Fuelweaver, that’s all she needs <3
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Oh wow, yeah they definitely should not tolerate you being that close to the house.
  11. 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?
  12. 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.
  13. @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.
  14. I don't mind at all, but the game just keeps creating a new 82721104 folder to replace the one that I delete as soon as it's opened, and continues to write new data in there. In case it's helpful, the 82721104 folder also appears to hold my clothing presets, my keybinds, and my settings--they are all reset to default when I delete the folder, as if the game were freshly installed on a new computer (I even get the unique prompt for creating my "first world") My old world save files remain unharmed and in their original locations.
  15. No worries. My whole hard drive is freshly backed up so I'm not worried about losing anything else. Feel free to poke me again if you need me to test something!
  16. It was not previously given Full Disk Access, but I have enabled it there now. Game still does not read my old world saves after giving Full Disk Access though--only the two new worlds that I created as tests, whose saves are contained in DoNotStarveTogether/82721104.
  17. Yes, this makes sense, but Don't Starve Together is already on the access list.
  18. Sure, Macintosh HD > Users > username > Documents > Klei. Save directory attached, hope it is useful, thanks for the swift response! DoNotStarveTogether.zip
  19. Similar to this player's issue here I was running the game on OSX, and after the Hallowed Nights update, the game application could no longer read my old worlds. They still exist in the save folder (Documents/Klei/DoNotStarveTogether/Cluster_1 etc.), but the game does not seem to read them, and writes new saves to a new location (Documents/Klei/DoNotStarveTogether/82721104/Cluster_1 etc.). Similarly, the game seems to have lost track of my old key bindings, setting preferences, and custom wardrobe outfits.
  20. I am also running the game on OSX, and having a similar issue (although I am still able to create and load new worlds without problem so far). My old worlds are still intact, but the game application does not seem able to access them. For me, the old worlds are located in User/Documents/Klei/DoNotStarveTogether, and named Cluster_1 / Cluster_2 / etc.; new worlds are created in User/Documents/Klei/DoNotStarveTogether/82721104, and are named with a similar pattern. So far, when I try to copy and paste old world data into slots within DoNotStarveTogether/82721104, they are overwritten and fresh new worlds are created in their place. This is unlikely to help you play your old worlds again--but I hope it will at least provide reassurance that the data is still there and may be recovered eventually!
  21. It's also just an uncommon Germanic given name with a few alternate spellings (Wort, Wert, Wyrt, etc.; anybody remember Wirt from Over the Garden Wall?)
