      UPDATED - Studio Note & Rhymes with Play Streams Temporarily Canceled.   03/06/2020

      UPDATE (3/19/20): Just a quick note regarding the team at Klei Entertainment. As noted previously, everybody at Klei Entertainment is working from home due to the Covid-19 outbreak. Many of us have been working especially hard to help maintain operations as we all move out of the office and into our homes and with everything being done online, extra time must be spent in organizing conversations and trying to maintain communication. As some of you may know, we have a very open office and we are almost always in contact with each other as we go about our days. Some of us work across multiple teams and that work has become a bit more challenging for everybody.   That being said, at this time the transition has not caused any major disruption in our operations, but it would be overly optimistic to expect that we won't have any delays at all. We're going to have to be especially mindful about this in the coming weeks and make sure we don't take on too much work so we can keep things running smoothly.  We will let you know as we see how these changes affect our timelines.  Thanks UPDATE (3/10/20):
      The test yesterday went well. We got the whole office (mostly) to work from home without significant issue. As a result, Klei Staff that can work from home have been asked to do so until further notice.  This means that we will have to cancel the Rhymes with Play stream until we are all back in the office. This shouldn't affect anything else at least in the short term, but if things change I will update you all here.  Original Post: Hey everybody,  This Tuesday March 10th, 2020 the entire staff at Klei will be working remotely for 1 day in an effort to prepare the studio to work remotely for a little while if the need arises.  Klei is already set up pretty well to allow for working remotely, however we are going to have a one day "dry run" with the whole studio so that we can identify and avoid any issues or downtime that may arise should choose to implement a work from home policy due to COVID-19 outbreak concerns. Unfortunately this does mean that we will be canceling the “Rhymes with Play” Art stream this coming Tuesday, however unless the situation changes we expect everything at the studio to be back to normal Wednesday and we’ll continue our regular stream schedule Thursday March 12th. If the situation changes at all, we'll let you know. Thanks for your understanding.

    Hello everyoneI havent been able to play any dont starve or to come visit the forums at all lately. Why does everything always go wrong right when the holidays start? Oh well, in any case, really shitty time to be me right now. Anyway, dun worry im not dead nor dying, but it will take a bit b4 im back to gaming/forumming like old times. greeetzPants

    Coz ur weird obvHavent played dont starve in a few days. Tiz kinda busy between schoolwork and Borderlands 2 with a friend. He like never has time except this week for some reason :pAnyway hope u guys dont forget about me or (god forbid) feel like i should stay away more often :DGoodbye for now everybody!

    I dont drink coffee at all. Im racist against all coffees. Oh and hiii everyone! The weather reports just said its gonna stop snowing and itll be a non-snowy christmas. Oh well. Booo for a non white christmas and YEEEY for my family being able to drive over and visit me coz of no snow. It goes both ways..
  4. Dec 12 Hotfix

    Do tentacles respawn now? my current map has like a miniswamp that is mostly grass anyway... So far Krampi have caused alot of mess in my camp, but none has actually managed to permanently steal anything from me yet. Other then that im starting to feel a little nicer, so i increased my amount of farms. Tiz annoying dealing with Krampus every 2-3 days.
  5. Yes live rabbits dont have a purpose atm, but it extends a little beyond that. Traps used to be an alternative to using tools to get morsels. Now u have to use tools regardless if ur using traps or not. Traps allow u to capture more bunnies quicker, just like they used to do, but now there is a tedious job afterwards to collect them (they dont stack) and drop em on the ground to kill them with an axe. They removed a few things that prevent tedious jobs, and then they add this. Traps were a little overpowered, but this was not the balance tweak i was waiting for. Imo it would have been better to make unbaited traps only have a % chance, say 25% of trapping a creature. Only with bait (and that takes away a lot of the benefits of traps) would u be guaranteed to catch a bunny. It would also be a good idea to prevent us from putting traps right on top of the rabbit holes, lowering the chance of a bunny wandering into an unbaited trap. I do agree with the change that birds no longer fall into normal traps. Birdtraps werent useful at all b4.
  6. Quote of the day

    O o oooo. i have tomatoes! AND rotten eggs! Can i pleaaaase pleaaaaasE?
  7. Rightclicking them in the inventory should just slaughter bunnies and birds or watever else u captured, even bees. Without using up any tools. I mean u already spend resources on making the bugnet/trap/birdtrap in the first place.
  8. Dropping Items Near Water

    I have a bigger problem than this lol. There is a tentacle in a marsh that spawned offshore and i just barely cant get in range to attack it, but it CAN attack me, the dirty kiter. Hes just making fun of me over there. Now it isnt a big deal to avoid that spot, but its against my nature to leave it there. I want to kill ALL the tentacles, mine ALL the rocks, have ALL the items Well most of the time at least
  9. Wendy

    She's staring right into our souls But a pretty drawing for sure, this is the Wendy that would appear in our world instead of the Don't Starve universe. Shes pretty but a little scary ^_^ Guess thats what happens when u often mingle with ghosts, especially ghosts that might be a ghost coz of her in the first place. Read that somewhere on these forums, but cant find where. Is there any truth to this rumor?

    HAAI GUUYS n GAL :DNice update mates, i already saw a Krampus but it was day 4 didnt have any chests yet. The info on the wiki says he doesnt pick up stuff lying on the ground, but this doesnt appear to be true, since he picked up some seeds that a bird dropped on the ground. He was so scared of me tho. OH and i LOVE the new map :DSadly i wont have that much time to play, but regardless im at least gonna spend some Royal i remember seeing a few of ur posts when i joined this forum, but its like uve been gone for a long time! Welcome back.
  11. I met a Krampus at day 4, was killing the first pig village i ran into! He was being a pussycat, he ran away from me all the time. Wonder if he will ever atack me, or just go for my stuff. And if he keeps his distance like he did, can i sleepdart him and hit him and kill him? That would be awesome! Anyway i LOVE the mapupdates and i like the increase in difficulty. Also i noticed a ninja nerf to rabbits. B4 when they were a few steps from their hole, u could attack them and even tho they ducked into the hole my hit would still land and a morsel would drop. Now however it seems bunnies need to be a little further away from the hole coz i didnt get to do what i just described. My hit now misses and the bunny survives. Touche my longeared rival, 1-0 for u. Ill come back for u later.
  12. Butter?!

    U cannot plant butterfly wings for flowers, u can plant living butterflies cought with a bugnet for flowers. Butterfly wings are used in a crockpot recipe that is very beneficial. butterfly wings on their own restore 1 health and 1 hunger, and lets take a carrot for this example, that gives 14 hunger when cooked and no health. Combine 3 buttefly wings and 1 carrot in the crockpot to make a butter muffin. The ingredients alone give 17 hunger and 3 health. The butter muffin gives over 60 hunger and over 10 health, not sure about the exact numbers, since i dont always use carrots, and a butter muffin made with corn instead of carrots gives different amounts of hunger and health, altho the difference is small.

    SO, thats 20 hours and 45 mins left to sleep. Another day well lived!
  14. I saw it on TwitchTv, being played by Unshockable. Awesome streamer and very hilarious too ^_^ Took me 5 mins to make up my mind.
  15. Too easy / too hard?

    Well combat in this game is generally very easy. Each and every enemy can be killed without getting hit. I dont necessarily mind that, but kiting should be a little harder against the stronger enemies than it is currently. In january the RP system is gonna get removed entirely, and every new game or new map starts u out with no tech other than the starting stuff. I think that is a great change. I want to know how hard hounds are when u dont have armor OR a spear when they first attack.
  16. Too easy / too hard?

    Welcome to the forums! The game as it stands is a little easy early on, could use a tiny nerf here and there to rabbits or to hunger in general. Later on the content is lacking since its just beta and more will be added in the future. Hard to say anything about that. As for rocks, are u sure u explored everything? 9 minable rocks is like nothing. Id be surprised if i ever had a map with less than 50 minable rocks, and in my current map i have 2 islands that consist entirely out of minable rocks, 100+ total. As for amulets, i think its fine, u resurrect on top of the enemy that killed u and im pretty sure u dropped all ur stuff so thats not that great. Effigies are overpowered as is, hope to see some tweaks in the future. I think it would be a good idea to allow only 1 effigy to be build at a time and after using ur effigy, it should have a 10 day cooldown b4 u can build another one. Something in that direction.

  17. Huh, looks like im not the only one that found beefalo on the very LAST island.. Roamed around for 14 days b4 i found them. THis is the 2nd map in a row this happened to me lol. I prefer to be near beefalo over being near pigs, since pigs dont give manure for free. Annoying vermin oinks at me too, with red capital letters saying YOU NOT PIG, and im like tnx mate, wish i could return the compliment, then he reponded: UGLY MONKEYMAN. I was deeply insulted. Beefalo just say moo, dunno what to think of it, i just say moo to u too.

    I put all my clocks 1 day ahead. Should work. Its officially patchday now..
  19. Or perhaps just a stickied thread called "Regarding multiplayer"? It wouldnt remove all multiplayer suggestions since some ppl dont read. But it will prob diminish the rate at which threads about this topic are created.

    Good morning ladies. Tiz early over here, 5 am, but still going strong. CANT WAIT FOR THE PATCH OMG
  21. How to beat tree guardian

    Hello there and welcome to the forums! There are 2 ways of killing a treeguard. U can light them on fire using a torch (select the torch as if u were going to drop it, but instead of dropping it, click on the treeguard) or u can use the unprotected campfire. This needs a little additional fuel tho so it actually sets the treeguard ablaze when he walks over it. The second way to kill him is kiting. Hit and run tactics. If u look at his attacks, he attacks rather slowly, there is alot of time between attacks. Try to bait an attack, but run out of range while hes swinging so he misses and his attack will be on cooldown. Then run in afterwards and hit him a few times. Then run away again b4 he hits u. Do not hit him when his attack is not on cooldown, he hits very hard. I hope this helps.
  22. [Guide] Hunting Rabbits: The easy way

    Allow us to bask in ur presence o great one Im sure there are others, but i saw it on stream for 5 mins then bought the game. Already spoiled the rabbit trick for me, so i cant tell if i would have found it out by myself But anyway, good for u! I found out about the "u can kite everything" the first time playing. Its coz i tend to go WAAAAHHH and run away but other ppl dont have to know that >.<
  23. Mandrake Keeping

    It does go meep yea. I always killem too, but dont tell LadyD, she would strangle me in my sleep. Ull know her when u see her. Called ladyD, big golden name, picture of some dude with goggles from a movie i havent seen. Honestly mandrakes are the best emergency food in the game. And how often is there a dire emergency? They can be counted on one hand and conveniently, so can the amount of mandrakes
  24. This might change in the future, but it has proven to be a myth currently Its funny how ppl keep bringing it up tho, supersticious bunch
  25. Help!!

    I have heard about this issue b4. U indeed need to play online and enable the steamcloud. That should do the trick.
