      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. kiting werepigs

    You cant kite them anymore. They kite you. the moment after they swing, they back off so you cant get a counter-hit. I don't think werepigs aggro on normal pigs anymore like it used to. Due to its new erratic movement it's pretty tough to get it to sit still in front of a swamp tentacle to get it to attack the werepig.
  2. Minimap

    I'm Necroing this old post rather than starting a new one. Since the map button already takes up a certain amount of space (I have never actually clicked on the map button, the tab key is easier). I think it would be very useful to replace it with a minimap (it could still maintain it's click to go to big map functionality). When exploring it would be nice to have to see where the fog of war is so you can explore without having to hit tab every 20 seconds.
  3. The new update is delicously difficult

    lol looks like someones gonna have to start making fire darts
  4. New update is toooooooo hard.

    Ehh I dont think the lack of roads makes it more difficult per se, it just really lowers efficiency and makes early game kind of slow paced and boring. I guess it's more realistic though and forces more exploration rather than following the roads to hit all the important spots on the map which is not necessarily a bad thing. If you like the game enough, youll endure the grind.
  5. Map Strategy

    The idea behind this strategy is to map out exactly where all the resources are to optimize your first few days. So you can hopefully get up to alchemy tier and starting turbo farm plots by day 2.

    This.Solves. Everything.
  7. The elaborate feedback.

    Yeah I understand that this is supposed to be a hard game. I'm not saying to make it easy, but allowing the player some control over sanity I dont think is an incredibly bad thing. Personally I dont even use honey ever because I just don't like bees, and the only thing I use my crockpot for is for making use of monster meat.Idk. I just saw from a lot of these threads, that people can play this game in many different ways, their own style and I liked that the game gave players that option. I'm in no way trying to offend anyone with my disagreement. I'm sure most of the people would agree with you.
  8. The elaborate feedback.

    There has to be some entry level. And even for non-noobs, some people don't want to have to be completely stressed out while playing the game. Im not saying to balance the game to make it super easy, but you can always choose not to do things you think will make the game less than Very Hard mode.You can always play Wes and refuse to use crockpots.
  9. The elaborate feedback.

    Although I do see that these points you mention could make the game too easy for people who have played this a lot and become pros, but rather than remove them completely and force everyone to conform to your difficulty, I would argue that it would be much easier (for the new players as well as the devs) just to make the option of not using the items that you believe make the game too easy. Some people want to be able to farm beardlings to make some effigies to give themselves a safety net in case something unexpected happens (especially for not Wilson characters. you can kill like 10 of them without getting enough beard hair for an effigy. That might take a couple days. getting attacked by hounds while defending your fire from 2 shadow hands is pretty tough). Some people want to play for a long time and want to build an expansive base. I think it would really hurt the playerbase and severely narrow the already niche demographic of this game if it were made too difficult.I hope they don't make the game too incredibly difficult. With the winter update coming I wouldnt be surprised if the cold weathers nerf the farms.
  10. Post Pictures of your 'Base' Here!

    yeah I havent gotten around to terraforming yet. I want to just fill the map with cobblestone so I can walk FOREVER.

    Also, I only plant eggplants in my farm. Only eggplants.
  12. Map Strategy

    Do you mean chester will not spawn, or you just wont see him due to short ranged vision?
  13. Map Strategy

    Thanks, yeah I tried to BBCode the attachment URL that the Klei forums use for attaching images. I think it needs to end in .imgformat extention for it to work
  14. Map Strategy

    Err hopefully it works now. For some reason the [Attach config] tag was showing as a link instead of an image so I tried to tag it.
  15. Map Strategy

    Here is a map tip that might help people have a more stable start to their games. One thing I do is I always start a game with a cartographer run. I only collect enough materials and food to survive and spend most nights running with the torch, following every road. (It appears that when a road ends, it marks the end of the land. An end of the road seems to mark a dead end on the map). If I find points of interest, I will reveal more of that map (beefalo, wormholes, wooden thing, reed swamps, pig towns (especially if there are bush farms), pig king, graveyards, spider biomes, bee biomes, etc). After I am content with what I find, I go to my map, zoom out and screencap. I then promptly kill myself and retry (when you retry it uses the same map) for a serious run. Example of my cartographer run (+ photoshop): This way, I know where everything is, and I can beeline straight for the resources I want first to have a stable base as soon as possible. Fortunately on this map. The graveyard had a wormhole that went fairly close to the Pig King. I was able to dig a ton of graves and then run to the wormhole and cash out for about 2 stacks of gold in one go. also, if you are looking in a position that you might die, quickly open your map, zoom out, and screenshot. If you have photoshop, you can then layer your new map over your old one and erase the fog of war from one or the other to combine both maps.
