      [UPDATED] Physical Megapack Disc Issues   04/16/2018

      Update 5/11/2018 We do not have any more information at this time. The last we spoke to 505 indicated that the discs should be ready very soon. We will likely have more information next week; hopefully with full explanation of when and how to get new discs.    Updated: 4/27/2018

      On April 17th, the Don't Starve Megapack was released. Almost immediately, it was discovered that the wrong content was printed on the PS4 retail version of Don’t Starve Mega Pack (the Xbox One version is not affected). The disc contained Don't Starve Together, but was without Don't Starve, Reign of Giants and Shipwrecked. As soon as we confirmed the problem we contacted our retail publisher to find out how this happened and what could be done. It's taken some time to get this far, but this is all the information we have at this time. The current status of the issue is as follows: New copies are currently in print and will be on shelves ASAP, hopefully within a few weeks.  When the new discs arrive in stores, players who already purchased misprinted discs will be able to exchange the disc for a new one in store. Details will follow as we figure out the exact timing, the procedures with specific retailers and what the exchange will entail.  Players who already purchased the faulty disc previous to 4/26/2018 can now contact Klei support HERE for a Playstation Store voucher code that includes Don't Starve Together, Don't Starve, Shipwrecked and the Reign of Giants DLC that you can play now. Please specify your country as certain vouchers only work in certain regions.  New purchasers of the Megapack in store as of 4/26/2018 should be given a voucher at the time of purchase on your receipt. If you do not get a code, contact us ALL purchasers will have a path to get a new disc when they are ready. We do not have details at this time, but we are comitted to ensuring that all players get what they purchased.  We are hearing from some players that some retailers are telling players that they will not be exchanging discs. We believe this to be incorrect and that particular person or location is just misinformed. 505 has ensured us that they are doing their best to make sure these discs are being replaced for all players. We will not allow anybody to fall through the cracks here. We will buy and ship the discs ourselves if we have too.   This was our first major retail release and we're extremely disappointed that our players have been let down with their purchase of the Don't Starve Megapack. We're doing our best to make sure this issue gets resolved as quickly as possible. Thanks everybody for your support and patience. We'll keep you updated.    UPDATE: (4/26/2018) We are now ready to send out vouchers to players who purchased the physical version of the Don't Starve Megapack - These codes will allow players to download and play Don't Starve and DLC as well as Don't Starve Together To get a voucher players can contact as at our support site: http://support.kleientertainment.com/customer/portal/emails/new  For the subject, choose "PS4 Megapack" and fill in the form and we'll get you fixed up as soon as possible.  We will require a picture of your receipt, your Klei account ID and the region you are located in (so we can give you the proper voucher).  UPDATE: (4/24/2018) Earlier this week, we discovered that the wrong content was printed on the PS4 retail version of Don’t Starve Mega Pack (the Xbox One version is not affected). It’s a really unfortunate situation and we’ve been working hard with 505 to resolve this as soon as possible. Below is the latest information: New copies are currently in print and will be on shelves ASAP, hopefully within a few weeks. When the new discs arrive in stores, players who already purchased misprinted discs will be able to exchange the disc for a new one in store. Details will follow as we figure out the exact timing, the procedures with specific retailers and what the exchange will entail.  Players who already purchased the faulty disc will also be able to contact Klei support for a voucher code that includes Don't Starve, Shipwrecked and the Reign of Giants DLC until the new disc is ready. Please specify your country as certain vouchers only work in certain regions.  We will have more details when they become available including details on contacting us and what information we might need.  Once again, thanks to everybody for their patience while we work this out.

  1. It’s a good practice to pick up no more than 3 flint from around the spawn if you start in the early days, but the truth is that new players tend to grab everything they see, then go off and die in the swamp where you find a skeleton with a stack of flint and nitre or whatever useless thing they were toting around. I agree that most players can spare 5 flint for a recent addition who is capable of taking care fo themselves and knows what they’re doing. But it seems like 80% of the people who beg materials off of other players simply continue to do that every five minutes (“Got any grass?” Etc.) until they either get killed by a catcoon or darkness or they suddenly leave the server with all your stuff after wasting all the pig skin to make a beefalo saddle on day 10. It’s good to develop strategies that don’t depend on being helped. If you can find a cave entrance that has already been opened, that’s often a good source of flint from the earthquakes. Meadow biomes have the most random flint lying around, and there’s usually one far from spawn where it hasn’t been collected. If you’re not finding flint, it sometimes helps to jump through a wormhole and branch out in a direction away from spawn. You shouldn’t really need a base to survive for several days (unless it’s winter or summer, and you should only join servers during those seasons if you’re pretty experienced), so instead of clinging to what the other players have already done, if you’re having trouble with resources, strike out for the less-explored parts of the map.
  2. I used Citadel for a while, but was frustrated by the expense—you have to rent two servers if you want caves, so it’s about $25 per month—and the interface was pretty difficult to work with if you want to do any customizing or, for example, give a friend admin privileges. I rented from UHostPro for a while and they were great. They only charged for one server and the support staff got back to me right away to handle any weird kinks in the set-up. With Citadel I typically had to wait for a day or two to get help. The interface wasn’t any easier though. I don’t understand why if you rent a server you can’t also use the in-game customization menu but instead have to go into a bunch of different files and edit them to configure the world. But UHostPro got bought by some other company that’s as pricey as Citadel, so I’m back to square one. I would not return to Citadel, personally, not unless their pricing has improved. I’ll check out GTX, though, so thanks! And I just looked at their web site, which doesn’t indicate that they rent DST servers at all.
  3. YouTube also randomly offered this up to me a couple of days ago: Tells you how to clear and then farm them without bunnymen, but with a good bit more work. It could be an interim method until you get the resources to build enough bunny hutches.
  4. Yes, if the bunnymen wander close to their nests, the tall birds will attack. The other bunnymen will come to their defense. You’ll need a lot of bunnymen, though, before they start taking out the tall birds. A fence around the area will keep them from running away when they get hurt.
  5. I think it’s meant to go with the new axe and shovel skins. I think something a bit more ornate but less oversized and big would have done well, something more like the Victorian fire pit
  6. I think the tureen is supposed to be silver, not porcelain, but I kind of agree. I used the skin because I wanted to try out the new ones, but tbh, I still prefer the original crockpot over *any* of the skins. They mostly seem too bulk and elaborate
  7. When you're holding it open, clouds of condensation come out, just like a real fridge in a hot kitchen..
  8. There are already 37 recipes in the base game, many of which most players never make. I have yet to play with anyone or see anyone stream who puts any real time into cooking a wide variety of the recipes we already have. Most of the people I know who play a lot of DS/DST feed their characters from about five different dishes, when they can’t get by on butterflies and seeds alone. They don’t want to have to think too much about food when they could be base building, exploring or fighting. Adding a bunch of new recipes and farming mechanics to the base game would mean beefing up aspects of it that players just arent’ that into. “Hey, let’s make farming even more inconvenient and time consuming! Then there can be even more videos on YouTube making fun of any player who does it!” Personally, I find the crazy variety of dishes in the main game one of DS’s charming details, but I basically cook meatballs, pierogis and bacon and eggs 95% of the time. I think this event was designed to call our attention to some aspects of DST that many players overlook, and I’m really enjoying it. I can see how enthusiasm for it might make people think for a while that they want it added into the base game, but it’s just silly to think that more than a tiny minority of players would ever use that stuff if it were available.
  9. Mixed Seeds Probabilities

    My impression is that once you’ve opened the gate to the sugar tree park you’re more likely to get garlic and tomato seeds

  12. After playing forager for a couple of groups of more advanced friends to a win, I decided what I wanted to do was fill out my recipe book by actually cooking them myself. For that, soloing for a while is the way to go. I’m not sure why someone at 6 or 7 would even want to play with someone at 20 or up, because you’re not going to learn much chopping trees and fetching keys for them. If they actually want to win, letting you be cook is not a great strategy, so even if they do play with you, you’re likely to end up feeling like you’re causing them to fail because you have to keep looking up recipes. Why do you want to force them to play with you, especially since they’re likely to be frustrated by the experience? Given that Quick Match doesn’t automatically group players by level, what exactly is so wrong with players taking the matter into their own hands? I get that that some people are hurt by being asked to leave a match, but with all due respect, this seems like an issue—taking very personally things that can’t possibly represent a personal judgement about you —that does not originate in the game. And again, quick matches are full of seemingly zoned-out, very young, or other-language players who don’t respond to chat or even really understand how the match system works or what’s going on at all, so if more advanced players want to get out quick without trying to process everyone’s feelings about the situation, you can’t really blame them. They’re just trying to play a game. I still haven’t gotten to the big-meat dishes in my cookbook, but the solo recipe challenge is a great way to learn how the Gorge works. Also, I’m now at level 51. Personally, I would not mind playing some quick matches with less experienced players because I’m getting to the point where I am competent enough to help them learn the basics. But I don’t think I should be obligated to do this every time I opt for a quick match.
  13. DS/DST already has dozens of recipes that hardly anyone uses. And if people want elaborate combat systems, they have other games where that is the focus. Fortunately, it’s not in DS/T What DS has that other games don’t is a fresh, witty style and a great mix of sandbox and survival play. So while I’ll always want more of it, Hamlet is more my idea of how to keep the game vital. It’s got new biomes and mobs, and it seems like there will be new challenges although that’s just speculation at the mo. You can play DS and DST for a long time without using the caves or ruins, play ROG very happily without adding Shipwrecked and vice versa, or play it for many hours without attempting adventure mode. Rather than piling even more stuff on the core game just because long-time players want something new, Klei has the right idea in experimenting with add-ons that don’t overload or imbalance the core game, which is pretty great as is. I really love the Gorge, and I say this as someone who sat out the Forge because it seemed boring to me. It’s a challenge with multiple solutions and approaches that players can tackle in a variety of ways, which is classic DS, not just a single-track “There’s the enemy, let’s kill it” arena battle. The new biomes are intriguing and cool-looking, and you really have to think and plan to get to a range of achievements, from completing the cookbook, to getting out in the minimum of time, to stretching out the match for as long as possible, to mastering specific challenges like no silver lining. You can solo, play with friends, or play with random. And to top it all off, Victorian skins is a personal dream come true. I bought all of them instantly. I LIKE that it’s separate from the main game and that we can only play it for a period of time.When it comes back again, it will be all the more exciting, and I can’t wait to see what Klei comes up with next in terms of events.
  14. What’s wrong with specifying that you’d like to play with others at a similar level? I don’t actually do this myself, but I wouldn’t be offended to be on the receiving end of it. It’s no reflection on you personally; some people have invested more time in the game at this point and have some other goal than teaching the inexperienced. If the server specifies that they want players of a certain level and above, just don’t join it, and certainly don’t be hurt if you get kicked for not paying attention to their request when you joined. There are a lot of clueless players out there blundering around with no idea what they’re doing, and I can see why players who are further along don’t want to have to explain this over and over again. I wouldn’t have a problem with a kick button because servers are effectively unlimited, unlike the main game’s servers where there may only be 4 or 5 within a reasonable ping of your location. The troll guy in OP’s post is the problem, not the OP. I hope they managed to get the match they were trying for, but the reality is that trolls can be very determined, and quite capable of troll-joining over and over again, forcing the people who actually want to play to go afk.
  15. If you don’t want to fight them, just leave them alone for a bit, maybe check them once in a while. Eventually they’ll just turn into small nests.
