      [UPDATED] Physical Megapack Disc Issues   04/16/2018

      Update 5/11/2018 We do not have any more information at this time. The last we spoke to 505 indicated that the discs should be ready very soon. We will likely have more information next week; hopefully with full explanation of when and how to get new discs.    Updated: 4/27/2018

      On April 17th, the Don't Starve Megapack was released. Almost immediately, it was discovered that the wrong content was printed on the PS4 retail version of Don’t Starve Mega Pack (the Xbox One version is not affected). The disc contained Don't Starve Together, but was without Don't Starve, Reign of Giants and Shipwrecked. As soon as we confirmed the problem we contacted our retail publisher to find out how this happened and what could be done. It's taken some time to get this far, but this is all the information we have at this time. The current status of the issue is as follows: New copies are currently in print and will be on shelves ASAP, hopefully within a few weeks.  When the new discs arrive in stores, players who already purchased misprinted discs will be able to exchange the disc for a new one in store. Details will follow as we figure out the exact timing, the procedures with specific retailers and what the exchange will entail.  Players who already purchased the faulty disc previous to 4/26/2018 can now contact Klei support HERE for a Playstation Store voucher code that includes Don't Starve Together, Don't Starve, Shipwrecked and the Reign of Giants DLC that you can play now. Please specify your country as certain vouchers only work in certain regions.  New purchasers of the Megapack in store as of 4/26/2018 should be given a voucher at the time of purchase on your receipt. If you do not get a code, contact us ALL purchasers will have a path to get a new disc when they are ready. We do not have details at this time, but we are comitted to ensuring that all players get what they purchased.  We are hearing from some players that some retailers are telling players that they will not be exchanging discs. We believe this to be incorrect and that particular person or location is just misinformed. 505 has ensured us that they are doing their best to make sure these discs are being replaced for all players. We will not allow anybody to fall through the cracks here. We will buy and ship the discs ourselves if we have too.   This was our first major retail release and we're extremely disappointed that our players have been let down with their purchase of the Don't Starve Megapack. We're doing our best to make sure this issue gets resolved as quickly as possible. Thanks everybody for your support and patience. We'll keep you updated.    UPDATE: (4/26/2018) We are now ready to send out vouchers to players who purchased the physical version of the Don't Starve Megapack - These codes will allow players to download and play Don't Starve and DLC as well as Don't Starve Together To get a voucher players can contact as at our support site: http://support.kleientertainment.com/customer/portal/emails/new  For the subject, choose "PS4 Megapack" and fill in the form and we'll get you fixed up as soon as possible.  We will require a picture of your receipt, your Klei account ID and the region you are located in (so we can give you the proper voucher).  UPDATE: (4/24/2018) Earlier this week, we discovered that the wrong content was printed on the PS4 retail version of Don’t Starve Mega Pack (the Xbox One version is not affected). It’s a really unfortunate situation and we’ve been working hard with 505 to resolve this as soon as possible. Below is the latest information: New copies are currently in print and will be on shelves ASAP, hopefully within a few weeks. When the new discs arrive in stores, players who already purchased misprinted discs will be able to exchange the disc for a new one in store. Details will follow as we figure out the exact timing, the procedures with specific retailers and what the exchange will entail.  Players who already purchased the faulty disc will also be able to contact Klei support for a voucher code that includes Don't Starve, Shipwrecked and the Reign of Giants DLC until the new disc is ready. Please specify your country as certain vouchers only work in certain regions.  We will have more details when they become available including details on contacting us and what information we might need.  Once again, thanks to everybody for their patience while we work this out.

  1. Sorry my bad, i mean glass forge:)
  2. I completely agree... but at the same time i think they're planning for more ultra-power-hungry devices. We're already seeing glimpses of that with the recent addition of the Kiln, uses 1.2kw. While i would like them to put more power consumers first the producers later, i don't really fault them.
  3. OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG!!! (runs around flailing his arms in excitement)
  4. While I completely agree i think they were going for a more cyclical power cycle with a focus on power conservation. You have various on-demand sources like natural gas and coal. And a powerful but unreliable source which is steam. The idea was to have the unreliable source feed in whenever it can so you can save on fuel for your on-demand sources. Then when the unreliable source was off, you use your on-demand sources that you saved up. Problem is the on-demand sources are already super-powerful. And the steam is too weak and too unreliable to have any dent. If it had 50% up time or produced 10kw then *maybe* it would be viable as an unreliable but significant source. As it is, it doesn't produced enough power overall to have a dent.
  5. I actually think the chemistry SHOULD be re-tweaked. And maybe have different outcomes for different materials Molten metal should actually become metal ore again. And heating metal ore just produces molten metal ore, it doesn't convert into metal. This would actually follow real life: Molten iron oxidizes in air into iron oxide... the ore that iron comes from. If you heat up iron oxide it's just liquid iron oxide lava. You have to refine it again to get back the iron. Same thing happens with copper. Molten copper oxidizes into copper oxide. The reverse happens with gold. Heating gold amalgam produces gold metal (and mercury vapor) in real life. Having different outcomes might actually be more fun if you like random plays. Just like scoring a natural gas geyser that gives free power. If you score a gold volcano you get free metal. But if you score an iron or copper volcano then you get their ores and have to build your metal refining system. Keeps the game interesting that way.
  6. Duplicants should be dead

    The absolute pressure of oxygen might be low enough to avoid the long-term effects of oxygen toxicity. As long as they maintain the same partial pressure. Early spacecraft used pure oxygen atmospheres since it was easier to maintain. Pressures were kept between 5-9 psi rather than 15 psi as on earth. But eventually they switched over to compositions close to earth standard (21% O2, 79% N2). Turns out that at low pressure it's harder to ventilate the air and maintain equipment performance. After all, all equipment is designed on earth, at normal pressure. Since it didn't require too much more engineering, both soviet and american space programs eventually switched over. Spacesuits though still use the low pressure approach. Just because it's easier to move around without the spacesuit blowing up like a balloon. Interestingly enough, one of the big problems with low pressure is heating and cooling. Low pressure air is not as good at heat transfer (both conductive and convective) as normal or high pressure air. So thermal design of equipment was an issue. Maybe the problems with heat management in ONI is because the air pressure is crap.
  7. I'm having a similar issue, even with the newest patch (march 17th). I lock a dozen pufts in a room with 2500g per tile of polluted oxygen, after 40 cycles, the oxygen is at 2450g even though i have lots of slime now.
  8. Just wanna say these tubes are awesomely hilarious. I LOVE them.
  9. Those animated trailers are adorable.
  10. I'm not seeing any automation I/O on the coal generator. if you're willing to brute-force it and just need input control then you can build the generator on top of a mechanical airlock and automate that. You turn it on by closing the lock and turn it off by opening.
  11. After running my microbe musher for some time the dupes stop making more liceloafs despite ample resources and idle dupes. I have 100000+ kcal of meal lice i'm converting into liceloafs. I have water setup right beside the microbe musher and i have 4 idle dupes just hanging around. When i assign a continuous task to make liceloafs the dupes at first start making some and after making say 50000 kcal they stop. The microbe musher says "Work Task Assigned" when i click on it and the prority is set to 9 but no dupes come. They stand around idle right in front of it but do nothing. Water is still working and meal lice are still available. I'm currently working around the problem by periodically removing the liceloaf task and then reassigning it. In previous builds my dupes would continuously make liceloafs without stopping. This time they stop. This has happened in multiple games now so i don't think it's just a bugged map. Interestingly enough, when i save and reload the map. The Microbe Musher works again and the dupes go at it. But after awhile they stop again.
