      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.

  1. I'll be making a lot of iceboxes it seems.
  2. What day are you on?

    I took this just before the Spider Queen update came out but here's my collective inventory; http://i.imgur.com/4raaz.jpg Day 290 atm.
  3. Jan 9 Update: Turf!

    Well I don't like how the rock biome turf looks (Which is where my base is located), but I guess now I can replace it all with grass or road. Problem solved.
  4. Since they've just come back from their break I think we just get this shovel change and then next update is a lot bigger.More details here; http://forums.kleientertainment.com/showthread.php?6446-Welcome-Back!-(Jan-2013-Roadmap-Update)
  5. I literally don't see why it's so hard, maybe your game is different to mine? Here's a video example I just recorded, it's 1 minute 26 seconds long; As you can see I take zero hits - I don't even need to equip armour really, it's just for peace of mind. That tallbird threw me off a bit and I thought about killing him before they came but they arrived quickly (I don't think he aided me in any way though). As you can see in the video I put one piece down because I know that the first hound I kill will drop one himself.The reason I'm saying this is better and simpler than using traps is just because of the wasted resources. 1 meat and some spear durability VS trap materials. If your way works better than what happens in this video though by all means play as you wish.
  6. next update? mine says 73 days

    Just checked for you and mine says 2 days, maybe a reinstall is in order - or just wait until patch day and see if it goes back to normal.
  7. Like I said on page 1; I'm on day 289 and it works fine for me without using any traps.One piece of meat down, kill the guy that gets there first and then repeat.
  8. I have to deal with about 12 or 15 each attack - it's just as easy as it was at 6. When you hear the audio cue just pick up one meat and drop it in the area you want to fight in; as they start spawning kill them as fast as possible while they're going for the meat. Works fine for me after multiple attacks this patch.
  9. Newb FAQ

    1.Unsure myself, search function might aid you in that. 2. If you have a meat effigy or amulet you are able to go to where you died and pick up your items, if not you're forced to start from scratch. 3. Nothing is capable of doing 100 damage, so you're not being one hit. Logsuit and Football helmet reduce damage though, maybe invest in those and keep a closer eye on your health. Honey is good for health regen.
  10. I have a dilemma...

    Plus you can't make tree-walls like that anymore.
  11. In the last patch they made maps smaller and more compact, I'm not sure I've seen any of my friends maps have bridges since then. I'm definitely keeping mine for as long as I can; http://i.imgur.com/xzDc1.jpg
  12. There is no mob in the game capable of doing 100 damage in one swing, so even if you have no armour on you did not get one-shot. If you want to actually engage in combat effectively I have two words; Kite & fight - I can clear waves and waves of spiders without taking a hit with that simple tactic and the same goes for every other mob. Also a good tip for hounds would be to drop one meat when you hear the audio cue; they'll rush straight for it so you can drop the first one while he's trying to eat and the same for his pals too.
  13. Dropping Items Near Water

    This please; my pigs are forever walking into a wall trying to reach a piece of meat hovering above the water. I think my only option is to destroy their homes and rebuild them away from it.
  14. I like the 60 fps and being able to save at any point in the day now, no more waiting around till dusk. Krampus, I feel, is a great mechanic. Looking forward to seeing what's got the spiders all riled up *cough*spiderqueen*cough*, hopefully when that comes out the nests will have less spawned spiders per hit but even if it doesn't I'm fine with it. I do wish they would've made it so all my tallbird nests got a new tallbird, the only way i'll be able to experience the smallbird/egg hatching is if I make a new world. As I'm on day 224 I'm quite hesitant to do so.
  15. Presumably the 8 instead of 15 is because they want a Christmas break, though it might mean less content than usual or maybe they have stuff waiting in the wings ready to be deployed.
