      [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. Personally I agree, the Agriculture Upgrade's system was a better overall direction, it simply had horrible number balance that could have been worked out. I think in the end I think the devs decided that it wasn't what they wanted out of the game.
  2. Don't get too excited about copying Neotuck's farm, as per the update today Glass Tiles now block Auto-Sweepers.
  3. [Game Update] - 278044

    With regards to transformers and wires.... ...are we all forgetting that Overload is determined based on current draw, not power present? It doesn't matter how much power the Transformer is moving, as long as the combined wattage of all devices is less than the overload limit of the Wire being used. You could rack up a dozen of the now 4 kW Transformers to a single circuit of standard 1 kW Wire, as long as you have less than 1 kW of devices actively running on that wire you have no problem.
  4. New Clothing item, craftable through the Textile Loom: Straight Jacket -> Dupe can't use Ladders or Fire Poles -> Dupe can't perform Tinker actions -> Dupe's carry capacity set to zero
  5. Farming Questions

    As far as I know, the Farming Station has never affected Mealwood, so either the video-maker was poorly informed, or they were referring to something else entirely.
  6. There are 4 points between the ceiling and floor where the Dreckos can leap across, not counting the walls on either end. Both sides of both the Shearing Station and Grooming Station allow jumping back and forth.
  7. Uh.... this isn't new. It's been how it works since Occupation. Perhaps the changes for Expression make the increases much more demanding, but the concept has been in place for quite some time.
  8. By that same token, though, it is unnecessary to secure it, since it doesn't do anything. As are most of the "ruins" objects that spawn.
  9. Sadly, you will need separate buildings for every continuous order you want to place on any recipe building. Which is super silly, and should have been changed a long time ago.
  10. Your throughput would be relatively small, due to how "flooding" is detected.
  11. Someone posted a "guide" on how to establish auto-dig, but it requires a Dupe dedicated to the task. Basically, make sure the only access to the surface (above your Bunker Doors) goes through a little outpost, where you have a Door that only one (or a few) Dupe(s) can pass. For that Dupe(s), turn off all Priority settings except Dig. Then, on top of your Bunker Doors, set a row of construction orders. Your "clearance crew" of Dupes will run out to dig any Regolith or other materials that tile-up on top of your Bunker Doors, but because they are only capable of Digging (everything else disabled) they will never be able to actually construct whatever it is you're using to trigger the dig orders. No other Dupes can reach the construction to finish it, either, because they are not allowed past the Door(s) that allow access to the surface. The real difficulty is setting this up in such a way that your Bunker Doors do not open while the process is being completed. You'd have to make sure you calibrate the delay from the end of Meteor Season based on how long it will take them to actually dig out.
  12. Have you tried deconstructing the Door? Your screenshot with pathing seems to indicate that, for some reason, the Dupe in question is not able to leave the Ladder and enter the Door to reach the dig site. Which is... strange. So start with the Door, see what happens. If that doesn't do it, then I would assume that Promethien has it correct, and the Dupe task assignment bit in the code is just being ornery and refusing to cooperate.
  13. Now that they have been reworked they are at least a relevant device for practical use. Whether or not they are able to compete with Deoxidizors or Electrolyzors, though.... I'm not so sure. You are very correct, though, they require quite a lot of Dupe interaction to function. You can minimize this a bit, by simply standing them in a small amount of water. They will draw it in as needed to continue running. But you will still need to empty the P-H2O from them. Which will then off-gas, so you also need Deodorizors in the area, or a location with a Bottle Emptier for P-H2O.
  14. That was removed on one of the last updates before the preview went live, was it not?
  15. On airborne germs, Food Poisoning germs will kill/override Slimelung germs. A number of veteran players actively make use of this fact to protect against Slimelung, but intentionally contaminating the water supply that will be going to their Electrolyzers to guarantee their air is full of Food Poisoning.
