      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. Spider fields. You know what I'm talking about. Five or six spider dens all clustered together, usually right between your base and where you want to be at the moment. Annoyances, for certain, and also completely useless. Or are they? Today I'll be teaching you how to make use of these infernal death traps and even safely and easily clear them away, making use of two vital survival techniques. Hound Cemeteries While the spider dens are still between tiers one and two, strap on your logsuit and begin a simple spider killing fest. The first hit should bring out 2-4 spiders, and the second should bring out 1-2 spiders. Kill them, and be sure to pick up all the monster meat. Only hit each den twice per day. After a few days, you should have a lot of monster meat. Go a little east or west of your camp and spread it all around the ground. When you hear the hounds' breathing, stand in the middle of this field. When the hounds arrive, they will be endlessly distracted by the meat, and you have pretty much as many hits as you want on it. I once killed four like this with a torch. Work fast though, because they eat more than they drop, and it won't last forever. Armor is not needed, because the hounds will always target food before mobs. Make sure this is not by anything flammable, as an effective Hound Cemetery will last well into the occurances of flame hounds. Colony Wars Low on silk? Well, you never will be again! Once your spider dens are a high enough tier to drop eggs (but not high enough to spawn queens!) make a pan flute and hit one spider den once. Now play the flute the second the spiders emerge, 'cause the warrior spiders are quick as all heck and need to be put down fast. The spiders will all fall asleep, and you can hit the den and play the flute again. Once more, and you should be clear to take it down all the way. When it breaks, grap the eggs and run. You can get the silk later, those spiders are gonna be furious when they get up. Now wait a day for the newly homeless arachnids to calm down, and collect the silk from the den. Now comes the fun part. Make yourself a Spiderhat, go to the spider field, and start some Colony Wars! All you have to do is put on the hat and hit a den. These spiders are now yours to command. Attack another colony, but break away before you get there. Take off the hat. Leave. Your work is finished here. Here's how it works: Let's say the colony you briefly commanded is Colony A. As you leave, Colony A will attack the den you told them to, let's call them Colony B. Colony A attacks Colony B's den. Spiders fight really, really slowly, so it should last well into the night. When the rest of the spiders from the other dens come out, they will only see Colony B spiders attacking Colony A spiders, and defend Colony A, giving Colony A plenty of time to break Colony B's nest. Now Colony A will help the other colonies finish off Colony B, eat the remains of all the dead, and go back to their own den. Give it a day or two, and come back to pick up the eggs and silk. Now it's time to start another war. TL;DR: If there are at least three dens, your spiders will win. When you're down to two dens, stand on the sidelines as they fight, for your spiders will now invariably lose. When they do, put your Spiderhat back on and have the colony you just attacked attack the colony you just controlled. Continue you this until one dies, and then take out the last colony while they're weak. Congratulations! You just took out a ton of spider dens and have enough silk to last a lifetime. If you'd like to, replant the remaining eggs, perhaps somewhere more convenient, and start the whole process over, refueling your Hound Cemetery while you're at it.
  2. Max days you've survived?

    Goin' strong at 96. Still don't have a Shadow Manipulator though. Can't seem to spawn a treeguard.
  3. Blood Eagles Comic + Art

    Dear god why haven't I seen this 'til now?This is AMAZING!
  4. Support for control-click for laptops

    Not all laptops.
  5. Gerbil's Art Plop

    This is... ridiculously good. I demand more.
  6. Riding on Beefalos

    To balance it, I think you should have to "tame" the beefalo some how (probably just feed it a lot) and the saddle should require a really hard to make/craft item. Controlling the beefalo should also be kind of difficult, as it only runs when it's angry, which could be dangerous. Is it necessary? No, but it'd be awesome.
  7. Pelontrix

    I'm so done with the Pelontrix...*shakes head**leaves thread*
  8. I found MacTusk city.

    Sounds like you got...(•_•)( •_•)>⌐■-■(⌐■_■)Walrushed.
  9. Desert Biome

    It's...beautiful. Maybe it could be a recurring challenge on each level, but it gets further away from spawn and more desert around it with every new world. Like in world 1 you would quickly stumble upon an odd machine in a square of sand, and by world five you would fleeing scorpions and following camels to oases (that is the plural) and exploring pyramids before being able to shut off the machine. And maybe (I actually don't like this idea all that much) hammering the machine would drop a special item that could be used to revert the desertification.
  10. I made a non-fire based light source once (the jack-o-lantern) just to see what it did. Waste of time and food if you ask me. I like having alternative light sources because it allows you to give your base more personality. However, there should definitely be a more accurate cost/reward ratio, because a lot of these things are ridiculously costly and actually worse than a firepit. Even if I could, I would never use the nightlight, even if you could feed it normal fuel, because of the sanity drain. Useless.
  11. Post YOUR BASE Here! [A little rain must fall!]

    Okay, thank you. I feel like that was a lot of trouble for such a small base, but at least I know how now.
  12. Post YOUR BASE Here! [A little rain must fall!]

    That didn't work either! I even took a snipping of the snipping and it didn't work.
  13. Desert Biome

    Going off the scorpion idea (or scorplug - post that picture, [MENTION=8696]F3RR1S[/MENTION]), i think they should drop, along with their tails, plates of exoskeleton (but with a catchier name - maybe Insect Plates) that can be crafted as a really strong but not very long-lasting armor. Perhaps there could be a desert boss - a giant Scarab, perhaps - that drops lots of these as well as a unique item.
  14. Post YOUR BASE Here! [A little rain must fall!]

    Gaaaah! All the pictures i have are slightly too big to post!
  15. Regarding honey balance

    Butterflies heal 20 health.Dragon Pies heal 40 health.Pierogis heal 40 health.Fishsticks heal 40 health.Wafflez heal 60 health.Koalefant Trunk Steaks heal 75 health.Mandrakes heal 100 health.There are lots of alternatives to honey (although the last few are a bit expensive.) There are also a lot of cheap crock pot recipes healing at least 20 health.
  16. Regarding honey balance

    Butterflies? Honey? Fishsticks are really cheap and heal 40 health and some decent hunger too. I don't even bother with bees anymore.
  17. Challenges!

    When I started reading, I was just thinking "Pft...I do these every time I play." Then I reached "Brute Strength," and I was just like "Nopenopenope."
  18. Let's see your lvl 100 Screenshots

    I died on day 98...
  19. Too Much, Too fast

    Of course updates are coming out rapid-fire - this is a beta! Just use a teleportato when you want the full update experience.
  20. what is going OOON

    I think you have to be insane to get past the obelisks. MADNESS IS THE ONLY OPTION.
  21. This is how you can play Multiplayer

    I feel like multiplayer would be an amazing, teambuilding experience until Winter comes.Player 1: Where's all the food?Player 2: EVERY MAN FOR HIMSELF!
  22. I love this picture!

    And this one.
  23. I love this picture!

    I think this is one of my favorites.
