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

      We are now ready to accept claims for PS4 Megapack replacements.  Once again, our deepest appologies for this entire situation. We understand that your purchase of the Megapack was a show of support by our fans, many of which already owned the game. Please know that we have done our best to push as hard as we can for a quick and fair resolution to this issue. This has taken WAY too long to be resolved but we have done everything in our power to make sure our fans get what they purchased.   We are going to use the voucher codes we have been using to provide the digital version to claim the physical replacement discs. For North America, we are handling these requests directly through our own store with help from our friends at IndieBox. Claims will be handled at no cost to you. For claims outside of North America, 505 will be taking your information and processing your claims.  Those who purchased the Megapack after 4/26/2018 should have been given a voucher at the time of purchase on your receipt.  Those who purchased before 4/26/2018 or did not get a code otherwise can contact us for a voucher code that will entitle them to the digital megapack and can be used to claim the physical replacement discs. We have been handing those out for a while now, but if you are in this category and have not requested a code, you can do so here: http://support.kleientertainment.com/customer/en/portal/articles/2935839-physical-mega-pack-disc-support-information Once you have a voucher code:

  1. The same applies to pigmen as well although you have to attack another pigman nearby in order to cause them to aggro you when the morning comes (or walk by their house as Webber).
  2. Wow, good job! All-nighters are vicious as I'd know. They turned out great and the new skin tone fits a lot better now. Also, a liuqin sounds like a good first choice for the sound files. You could always change it later if you found a more fitting instrument I suppose but it's probably a great fit for this character/personality so far. Don't forget to take a break every now and then or you'll be too tired to pump out quality effort at which point it'll just become passionless quantity.
  3. Taking things 1 step at a time is vital for completing a bigger project! Trying to handle everything at once almost never works out. Good luck and I'm sure you'll be able to figure it out eventually if you persist.
  4. Very nice! I think it came along pretty well. The only thing that could make it more consistent with DST's art style is perhaps making the skin tone a bit more on the pale side. When looking at the default character portraits, all their skin is pretty close to grey almost. Other than that, it's a great start.
  5. [UPDATE] The Gorge on Consoles

    Hm, it could've been. He never said early next week though for giving a more accurate date. Early next week was for submitting the cert. But, on the bright side, he didn't say late next week either for the 2nd week. I'm hopeful that they'll deliver the release date before August. Fingers crossed.
  6. [UPDATE] The Gorge on Consoles

    I'm sure that CharlesB will update as soon as he can. Unfortunately, he did comment the following on July 16th, Monday. That gives an estimated time between July 28th - August 4th for him to have a more accurate answer. I wish I could help you guys out but I'm just simply another DST fan/player. Hopefully the event comes out soon for the console platforms!
  7. Unfortunately, I don't really have a whole lot of experience with art and animation. The best advice I can give there is use as much reference as you can! Not just for your character, but for the items, too. Look at things like the night light, nightmare light, lantern, etc. References will help greatly. I think there's a DST character mod tutorial mod out there (yes a mod on the workshop that comes with a character template and a tutorial to help you learn how to do a character mod in DST). That can help you to learn about the animation I guess. Also, try looking at some of Tim Burton's works on YouTube. I'm pretty sure the art style from DST heavily drew from his art style. That'll definitely help as well. Best of luck on your project! I've had a lot of projects in the past (not concerning DST but just hobby projects in general) that I started but never really finished. Don't forget that sometimes a break can help to refresh your creative spark!
  8. Instead of adding a new item, perhaps you could tweak some of the existing ones? Maybe the explorer's lantern can repel shadow creatures during the night time when it's the only source of light within the lantern's radius. The belt of protection could also absorb 100% of the damage taken from shadow creatures while blocking a high amount of damage from other enemies. Also, you should cut the amount of different materials needed to craft it to 3. I don't know much about modding, but the crafting menu by default only has up to 3 different items max per crafting item.
  9. Oof. Perhaps we should consider adding this to the top 10 saddest anime deaths?
  10. Character Playstyles

    Maxwell is the only exception to this rule as he's rather experienced with the higher magic arts formerly being on the throne himself. So only Wickerbottom and Maxwell can read her books.
  11. That definitely sounds much more reasonable. Alternatively, you could also keep the heated thermal stone requirement as I liked the idea of a source of warmth being required to awaken the windwyrm from hibernation. Perhaps based on the durability of the thermal stone it'd stay awake for differing periods of time? 100% thermal stone = full winter length awake 87.5% = 14 days awake 75% = 12 days awake Subtracting 2 days per durability loss on the stone each time etc...
  12. Character Playstyles

    Making balloons is the pinnacle of DST. You have now ascended to the highest realm possible and can handle anything this game throws at you! On a more serious note, Wickerbottom definitely takes a bit of practice to get good at her. Especially figuring out how to use on tentacles effectively without getting wrecked by your own tentacles. I'm pretty new at her too but I've been practicing with her on a co-op world recently. If I can give some advice, it'd be this. Be at good health or (if you're far enough into the game) have a lightning-proof outfit when charging WX-78 with The End is Nigh. You can die from your own lightning strikes. 8 x 8 hay walls seems to be the minimum flooring required to safely spawn a bunch of tentacles to farm raid bosses for you. Mostly Bee Queen but I guess it could work for Dragonfly, too. Birds of the world with sleepy time stories can be used to farm a good amount of meat if you find yourself running short on it for meatballs/pierogi. It's mostly used for farming Krampus however and azure feathers during winter. You are going to be insane a lot as Wickerbottom due to her books. I would highly recommend being comfortable with insanity before beginning to play a lot of her. If you're not comfortable being insane, you could try asking a Maxwell on the team to read for you as he regenerates sanity passively.
  13. It makes sense. As hard as it may be for some players to never get any reactions from the developers, I say it's better for the developers to be silent than spoken but giving out false promises. I'll trust that Klei has seen the numerous threads made regarding adding the golden version of the fanciful tools by now.
  14. I'm pretty sure that's as intended since beefalo walk on webs, too. Come to think of it... I wonder if a domesticated beefalo gets slowed down by webbing if the rider is Webber? I'll have to test that out. Also, I just pulled some nifty shenanigans with console commands to make me the expert beefalo tamer having a fully tamed beefalo on day 1! And so, no, overcharged WX-78 nor Mighty Wolfgang affects the beefalo's speed either. Thanks, stopwatch for being useful for once! Edit #1 Fun fact, the size of the domesticated beefalo also increases when Wolfgang becomes mighty. No, seriously, Mighty Wolfgang makes the beefalo grow like 50% in size. It's absolutely hilarious hehe.
  15. I'm honestly surprised no Klei developer has had any input on this yet. I thought for sure that they would add gold versions eventually but perhaps they are a bit tied up at the moment with working on bringing The Gorge event to the console platforms. Of course, I have never done any graphical modding in DST before so I don't know how difficult it'd be to palette swap them using the engine. Still, I wholeheartedly support them adding the gold versions and hope that they have added this to their list of to-do things once they have some free time.
