  1. Whimsy the Cheerful Sunflower


     
    Adds Whimsy to the list of playable characters.

    BEFORE I BEGIN, PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS CHARACTER IS DESIGNED TO BE A SUPPORT CHARACTER. IF YOU USE THIS MOD IN SINGLE-PLAYER, YOU WILL BE PUTTING YOURSELF AT A SIGNIFICANT DISADVANTAGE. WHIMSY IS DESIGNED AROUND TEAM PLAY.
    Whismy is a happy sunflower that loves making people smile--which is quite a contrast from the dark, uninviting world of Don't Starve Together. She was born (read:grown) here naturally, and knows nothing else--this world is normal to her. To her new friends, the the sight of her is a great refresher from the horrid world that is constantly trying to kill them... Well, most of her friends, anyway; Maxwell's still not sold on the idea of a disgustingly ecstatic sunflower that just won't shut up. At least she's technically one less mouth to feed.
    Whimsy is a very, VERY odd character that I've been wanting to create for a very long time (she was thought of and designed around the same time as Weston was when he was being developed for RoG). She is effectively a full support type of character, while at the same time being almost parasitic. She is nearly completely reliant on other players to survive, meaning that you will almost ALWAYS have to play with another player to get anything done. In return, Whimsy almost completely negates the sanity loss of other characters, which holds some characters back.
    ------------------------------------------
    Whimsy's stats are as follows:
    Hunger: 150
    Health: 75
    Sanity: 200
    ------------------------------------------
    Here are Whimsy's perks:
    PROS:
    + Whimsy is naturally cheerful in the sunlight, and she's almost always in a good mood. Because of this, Whimsy regenerates sanity very quickly in the daytime. In the dark, not only does she not lose any sanity from night drain, but she regains sanity at almost the same rate!
    + Not only does Whimsy regenerate sanity for herself, but when she is near other players, they also regain sanity from her cheerfulness. This is useful for characters that have sanity penalties. Her cheerful nature even triumphs over the sanity drain from darkness (Does not stop Charlie from attacking your friends, however)!
    + Whimsy uses photosynthesis to regenerate her hunger in the daytime, which raises quite quickly. In addition to this, she also slowly regains her health in the sunlight.
    + Whimsy is light and quick. She is quite a bit faster than most characters.
    + Much like Weston the Wandering Cactus , Whimsy attracts insects that naturally seek out flowers. However, when certain insects see Weston's spikes, they'll usually flee after getting too close. Since Whimsy has no spikes, insects will freely light on her and pollinate her.
    + Being a flower, Whimsy is not very threatening. Therefore, certain small prey animals that would normally be scared away by the player's presence are not scared by her, meaning that she can approach them freely. Therefore, she is the perfect character to capture small prey with traps. In addition, certain mobs will either ignore you completely (until you attack them), or watch you curiously from a distance.
    CONS:
    - Whimsy is a delicate, frail flower. She has a low health pool because of this (75 hp).
    - Whimsy, like Weston, also suffers from a 3 x damage vulnerability from fire. Combine that with a very low health pool, and this can mean a very quick death.
    - Along with being frail, Whimsy is also EXTREMELY weak. In fact, she does NO DAMAGE when attacking. The only thing she seems to be able to kill is butterflies, it seems...
    - Whimsy does not have any hands--just leaves. Because of this, Whimsy is COMPLETELY unable to hold any kind of tool, such as axes, pickaxes, unbrellas, torches, etc. If she tried to pick up one of these tools, it will immediately slip out of her leaves, meaning she cannot even take them with her (unless she takes it out of a chest, or other storage unit).
    - Along with not having hands, Whimsy has many delicate petals that adorn her head. Because of this, she cannot wear hats of ANY KIND, as they would damage her petals. In fact, much like tools, she cannot even pick them up! The same rules that apply to tools apply to hats, basically. Don't worry, Whimsy CAN wear torso items like backpacks, armor, etc.
    - Whimsy has no mouth, or any kind of openings in her face, really. Because of this, WHIMSY CANNOT EAT FOOD. Whimsy is totally reliant on photosynthesis for her energy, which is only available during the day while not in a cave. When Whimsy is not in the daylight, she loses hunger points, but much more slowly than most characters.
    - Insects aren't the only thing drawn to her... Catcoons will leap up at your head and swat at you, which can deal a surprising amount of damage. Even if they're only playing, getting hit by a sneak-attack from a Catcoon can mean death if you are at low health.
    - Whimsy LOSES 5 sanity from picking flowers, instead of gaining 5 sanity like most characters. This does not apply to things such as ferns, succulents, and cactus flowers. Basically, your average garden-variety flowers (excuse the pun).
    - Unfortunately, due to the nature of Whimsy's appearance (and how much I had to change the default character model), Whimsy is COMPLETELY UNABLE TO WEAR CLOTHING SKINS. It was necessary to add this, otherwise she would look REALLY broken in them. However, I will soon be creating custom skins for her, which will add some variety to her. In the meantime, I apologize for the lack of customization.
    ------------------------------------------
    Cool stuff in this mod:
    + A whole new character to play as (obviously).
    + TONS of custom dialogue lines written just for Whimsy!
    + High-Quality character art!
    + Custom minimap icons, select screen portraits, and save slot portraits!
    + Entirely new speech sounds!
    ------------------------------------------
    Tips and Tricks for using Whimsy Effectively:
    Here are some things to know about Whimsy that will help you while playing:
    - Whimsy cannot hold tools, which means she is completely reliant on other characters for things like wood, stone, and other resources that normally require tools to obtain. This means she will need other characters to get these things for her. She cannot even hold torches or lanterns, so she has to rely on other characters to produce a mobile light source for her.
    - Whimsy does not eat food, but she does still have inventory space. When playing as Whimsy, you can be used effectively as extra storage space for other players, sort of like Chester. When Wolfgang or Wickerbottom can't hold any more items, consider giving them to the walking sanity factory behind them for future use. Since she's too weak to work or fight, she may as well make herself useful SOMEHOW.
    - In PvP, you are obviously at a disadvantage strength-wise. However, you are much faster than most characters, effectively running at around cane-equipped speed. Use your speed to get away from attackers. However, if THAT doesn't work, maybe consider bribing your enemies with the sanity bonus you give? Make them see that it's more beneficial to them to have you alive than dead, and try to make an alliance.
    - Since Whimsy relies heavily on the daylight, she is at a HUGE disadvantage when in caves. This makes it much harder to stay in caves for extended periods of time, as sunlight is the ONLY way to restore her hunger. Consider giving her a Belt of Hunger if you plan on staying in the caves for a while. While she cannot stay in caves for long, she DOES provide a large sanity aura capable of negating the darkness, which is very advantageous for certain characters.

    Thank you all so much, and have fun!

  2. [DST] Woka the Arctic Hunter


    Adds Woka the Arctic Hunter to the list of playable characters.
    Woka is a character that I originally thought of for Don't Starve: Shipwrecked. I had planned to make this character before Don't Starve Together was even out, but I ran into some roadblocks at the time that prevented me from making her. Now, multiplayer is here, and I figured it would be a great time to make her. I really like how she turned out.
    Woka comes from an undisclosed tribe of people from somewhere in the northern hemisphere. She is always wearing her thick winter parka, and never takes it off (It was her late father's coat, and she refuses to let it go). She appears to be a cold and wisened hunter on the outside, but get her excited or angry, and you'll see that she's still really just a typical child. Side note: the word "Woka" is Inuit for "Brave".
    ------------------------------------------
    Woka's stats are as follows:
    Hunger: 150
    Health: 150
    Sanity: 200
    ------------------------------------------
    Here are Woka's perks:
    PROS:
    + Woka can never get cold. She is quite warm all the time.
    + Woka cannot be frozen by attacks that would normally freeze you solid, such as attacking Ice Hounds, getting struck by Deerclops, or being hit by an Ice Staff.
    + Woka is so warm, other players can sometimes JUST avoid taking damage from freezing by huddling VERY close to her.
    CONS:
    - Woka gets hot very easily, which can be a serious problem in the summer.
    - When Woka's temperature is above 60 degrees, she becomes exhausted from the heat, and moves 25% slower than normal. You will need to cool off to get your speed back.
    - Woka's coat is very warm, but the warmth is not good for food storage. Food will spoil much faster on her than any other character.
    ------------------------------------------
    Cool stuff in this mod:
    + A whole new character to play as (obviously).
    + TONS of custom dialogue lines written just for Woka!
    + High-Quality character art!
    + Custom minimap icons, select screen portraits, and save slot portraits!
    + Entirely new speech sounds!
    ------------------------------------------
    Using Woka in Don't Starve, Don't Starve:Reign of Giants, or Don't Starve:Shipwrecked:
    Woka was developed for use in Don't Starve Together, and that is the only form of the game she is 100% compatible with. She has not been tested for any of the single-player games. Therefore, I am only allowing her to be used in Don't Starve Together.
    ------------------------------------------
    Author's Comments:
    Thank you again for your support. I have been working non-stop on this mod for the past month now, and I have poured everything I have into this mod to make it look as much like an official character as possible.
    I would like to thank SuperDavid on the Klei Forums for helping with Woka's overheating mechanics. I couldn't have done this without his help. I would also like to thank The Tiddler (Mr. Tiddles), and Mighty_Zero for their support while I was working on this project.
    ------------------------------------------
    Thank you all, and have fun not starving!

  3. Weston the Wandering Cactus

    UPDATED YET AGAIN, AGAIN! Re-download Weston if you downloaded him before 1/6/2015! (I gave him his own custom voice sounds!)

    Adds Weston to the list of playable characters.
    Weston is just a fun little character mod I thought of a while back, and wanted to see in the game. He was very close to being finished for the longest time, but I had to cease work on him due to certain circumstances (college work overload, Don't Starve deciding it doesn't want to run anymore, etc.). Since the quarter is finally over and Don't Starve is working again, I decided to finish him up and release him!
    ------------------------------------------
    Weston's stats are as follows:
    Hunger: 150
    Health: 150
    Sanity: 200
    ------------------------------------------
    Here are Weston's perks:
    PROS:
    + Weston is COMPLETELY immune to overheating! Enjoy those summers without sweltering!
    + Weston is covered in sharp spines! This means that if you take damage as Weston, your attacker receives 15 damage back for hitting you! Your punches are also MUCH stronger than normal (but weapons and tools do normal damage, with the exception of one...)
    CONS:
    - Weston may like the heat, but he does NOT like fire. He takes a whopping 3x normal damage from fire, so stay away from it at all times!
    - Weston does not like the cold. Summers may be awesome, but winters will be brutal, because Weston freezes a lot faster than other characters. Watch out during the spring, as well--Don't let Weston get too wet, or he may start freezing.
    NEUTRAL:
    - The flower on top of Weston's head attracts insects (Mostly bees and butterflies).
    ------------------------------------------
    Cool stuff in this mod:
    + A whole new character to play as (obviously).
    + TONS of custom dialogue lines written just for Weston (For regular game AND RoG!)
    + High-Quality character art! (400 Resolution!)
    + A custom minimap icon!
    + (As of 1/6/2015) BRAND NEW TOTALLY-CUSTOM SPEECH SOUND!
    ------------------------------------------
    Tips while playing as Weston:
    <> STOCKPILE!: Weston is a unique character in the sense that he is 100% immue to overheating. Use this to your advantage. You will have a terrible time in winter, but you get THREE WHOLE SEASONS to gather supplies! Use your time wisely.
    <> HUNT BUTTERFLIES!: That wasn't a joke. Weston has a unique quirk that no other character has at their disposal--being able to attract insects. Butterflies will come right to you when you're near, and you can swat them down for easy health and hunger points.
    <> AVOID KILLER BEES!: This may seem like something that's obvious, but killer bees are a very real threat to Weston, ESPECIALLY in the spring. The killer bees have a MUCH larger detection range now that they're attracted to your flower. They'll come to pollinate... But will stay to sting you silly.
    ------------------------------------------
    Known Bugs:
    Supposedly, certain computers display black boxes as the player model instead of Weston's model, but I don't have any idea which computers this pertains to. These appear to be isolated incidents, and most of the time, the character should work normally.
    If you DO have this issue, I recommend downloading the version that sacrifices some of the art quality for performance, which can be found on this page, along with this mod: http://forums.kleientertainment.com/topic/36119-weston-the-wandering-cactus-character-mod/?p=474253
    ------------------------------------------
    Using Weston with the Reign of Giants DLC:
    Weston was made with the Reign of Giants DLC in mind, thus he is perfectly compatible with it. Not only that, but he will work 100% with the regular game as well!
    ------------------------------------------
    Author's Comments:
    Thank you all so much for supporting me and my mods. This is probably the last Don't Starve mod that I will be doing for a while, as there is a ton of other things going on right now in my life that need to be taken care of. This probably won't be my last Don't Starve mod, but it will be a while before I do another, most likely.
    Once again, I'd like to thank Mr. Tiddles for help with coding, as well as basically the entire Don't Starve modding community. I couldn't have done this without their help.

  4. Spookers The Spoo

    (Also available on the Steam Workshop with extra screenshots)
    http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=182707919
    *My VERY FIRST Don't Starve Mod!*
    (Please be kind).
    Spookers is a small ball-like creature who built his own robot-body to ride on top of. He loves to tell bad jokes.
    His perks are:
    *Starts out with lowered health
    *Has potential to reach a max health of 250 with no side-effects
    *Makes bad puns/jokes about what he observes (purely cosmetic)
    This will hopefully be the first of many Don't Starve character mods I make.
