docstout posted a topic in [Don't Starve] VideosHey everybody! I'm an older gamer and podcaster, been streaming and doing let's play videos for a while now, but my usual games started to feel stale. I enjoy survival games in general, and decided to make Don't Starve my first game in the "Survival Series." It also gave me an excuse to return to the game, as I hadn't really played much since caves were introduced. Some of the things that changed bewildered or confused me, but I had a lot of fun recording this series, now collected into a convenient YouTube playlist. http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL38z2HywHMTqhouht2ON1yWcTcp7wy-hK Enjoy, and leave me a comment if you came from these forums. I'll be watching this thread, though my preferred status in game forums is "lurk much, talk little."
Bug Submission Please choose a category [Gameplay] Platform [*]Steam Version Number - Issue title Inventory wiped upon World Escape Steps to reproduce Escape an Established world with a full inventory, upon restart, all items are gone, all research progress reset. Describe your issue In preparation for the new patch, I found the Teleportato on my existing sandbox world, carefully selected items from my inventory that I wanted to keep, and jumped through at day 26, neatly avoiding a winter I wasn't ready for. I indicated I was ready to move on, watched the animation for Wilson to be pulled into the ground, and selected "Return to Main Menu" when prompted, collecting my experience for survival. I selected the same save slot from the menu, now marked "Sandbox 2-1." When I jumped into the world with a new Wilson, no inventory, no beard, no nothing. I hopped back to the menu, and now that same save slot is marked as "Sandbox 1-1" and the empty inventory and lost hours of progress are saved. If it matters for purposes of the bug, I'd had a meat effigy active and unused in the old world. This is a game-breaking bug in my opinion, I could have saved hours of work by dying and restarting, but I was looking forward to taking on winter without losing all my progress. It is a beta, and I still really like the game, but I'd have been livid if this had happened to me on a final release version.
Bug Submission Please choose a category [Gameplay] Platform [*]Steam Version Number - Issue title Items Missing after escaping a world Steps to reproduce Escape a world with full inventory, certain items missing on starting in new world. Describe your issue Left a world in new Sandbox mode, deconstructing all my difficult to make structures with a hammer, loaded up and got moving. when arriving in the new world, all wood planks, stone blocks and charcoal in my inventory was gone. Frustrating as I'd refined a few of the logs in my inventory into boards before escaping so I arrived low on wood in general. I looked for documentation indicating that certain items don't travel, but couldn't find any. Working on reproducing the bug.
