      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. I never saved him. I unlocked him way back when Wes was unlockable just like any other character by surviving enough days. I wonder if I have a trapped Wes somewhere in adventure mode regardless.
  2. Guilty Confessions?

    Guilty confessions... boy this thread is for me. Here's how I became a burden to a pair of players running an endless server: I fought my first DST Dragonfly and got out of stone cage even though I was told not to; I wasted a bunch of purple gems seeing how much they got for the sake of experimenting with teleports; When one of the guys questioned a newcomer about whether he knows the game, I immediately answered for them; When Beefalo taming was added I wasted most of the grass, twigs and possible vegetables for taming, only to let the beef go feral the next irl day; My experimenting with teleporting was apparently so annoying that the next time I checked the gem chests, all purple, red and blue gems were gone After the last one I abandoned the server (not dropping any items) and never returned. And here are two other cases of me ruining the game: I once felt like roleplaying Wendy and try being all that depressing and stuff... I died to a Koalephant (unintentionaly), drove everyone insane, made them die to shadows and the last to leave said "F you, b". Guess I roleplayed too well; With the anxiety I had from my previous failures I pushed myself and joined another public server, hoping that I will not burn an entire base down with hounds or something... Well guess what happened. The following "Wendy ffs" was enough to make me leave. At this point I have a feeling that my anxiety and fear of messing up and not looking like a complete noob make me exactly that. This is why the only way I play is with friends or alone... mostly alone because my friends are not interested in DST whatsoever. Got a bit existential at the end... heh well that's all there's in my head sadly. No wonder I main Wendy.
  3. I saw the Team Fortress 2 promotion where you got two items for buying Don't Starve. At first it didn't really pull me in. Didn't even survive a year where there was only Summer (Autumn) and Winter. It was only after I got RoG that I pushed myself to survive a whole year. Grabbed Wolfgang, beat the bosses and after like 3 years I got bored and died to Rock Lobster infestation. Good times.
  4. [Poll] On Boss Themes

    EFS of Winter followed close by Vs Antlion. EFS of Winter comes up for like the first time you fight an actual boss. It also helps that it sounds really epic and intense. I used to play this everytime I was going home to let my imagination loose. Vs Antlion feels like you are fighting in the middle of the apocalypse. While the Antlion itself is far from the apocalypse, the music is sure making the fight more exciting.
  5. This pool feels fake. Suddenly most people main Wendy? Yeah right... now when she's getting a rework. I mained her before she was cool. >:( Anyway... I like Wendy for her character. How she just compares everything to death in a sort of poetic way. Also, she kinda gives me these edgelord vibes that I kinda like, but don't want to commit to it in the typical fashion (look Reaper from Overwatch). I dunno, I just find it fun to be a creepy haunted girl. EDIT: All Wolfgang mains, fear my necromantic powers! Muhahahhahahhah
  6. [Poll] On DST Fight Themes

    Shouldn't it be Cave Danger instead of Cave Work? Now that I think of it, I'm not a particular fan of any of them. Like, I don't despise them or anything. They are just okay in my book. I'd say Cave Danger is the best. Still just alright, but better than others.
  7. I'd say Pierogi. Like you said, Dragonpies need too much attention to get them going, although you don't have much choice if you are playing Wurt. Other than that I like to make a bunch of healing salves and random dishes. Praise the Smart Crock Pot mod otherwise my diet would probably still consist of only meatballs.
  8. Well it looks like it's from before the Constant given the Orphanage (we both know the Constant outside of Hamlet has an allergy for buildings) and Willow being a child. The shadows can exist in the normal world which is how Wilson, Maxwell and Charlie were taken into the Costant. Also, Willow is immune to fire in singleplayer DS which happens before DST, so I guess we can assume that Willow had a moment of weakness before the rework happened. I have feeling we are getting dangerously close to the offtopic section so I'm gonna throw in something ontopic: I got a sneak peak on the Wendy refresh video and you won't believe it. There's Wendy and Abigail!
  9. What if someone would want to play as old character but still wanted the DST content? Either way I doubt Klei would do that as it would confuse new players. Just imagine, A new player joins a random standard server and chooses Winona. Cool they think, they can make a light or catapults to defend from hounds. Then they join a classic server and suddenly they can't do jack manure... except making some tape. And then they realise that half of the characters have two entirely different mechanics while the other half plays the same in both modes. Some offtopic here: I unlocked Wes back in the beta days of DS. I never dared to play him since I sucked and now when I tried him in DST I didn't enjoy him. Not because he was hard but because I had to constantly eat to satisfy that black hole of a mime.
  10. Well, the Woodie video gave me those expectations. It wasn't my favourite because, like for all of you, it didn't introduce any lore and just presented his transformations. I hope there would be some lore with this refresh. Either how Abi died, how Wendy got into the Constant or at least how Wendy managed to summon Abi in the first place. EDIT: I think that people would prefer stories from before the characters were put into Constant. See what their lives used to be. How were they holding up? Did they have someone important in their lives? Every refresh video covered something from the characters past except for Woodie.
  11. Currently I expect a video where Wendy interacts with these newly introduced ghosties and Abi would just mess around.
  12. I agree in the most part. There should definitely be some clues on what's the beefalo current domestication. I think simple character quotes would do the trick I think. Getting on agrroed beef should definitely be a thing. I once lost my awesome rider because it got too close to a horde of frogs. Needless to say I got really annoyed... and probably rollbacked I don't remember. And the permament domestication... Eh I dunno. I often find a good use for my beef. Often times I take it to smack Moose/Goose. No need bothering with gearing up. I would suggest increasing the durability of salt licks though (and apparently it's buggyness in actualy keeping beefalo tamed). I like dedicating so much time in taming the beef. Makes you actualy care for the thing. Make a pen for it, spend half an hour killing butterflies for a saddle, taming it for the desired tendency. It just gives you a lot of stuff to do when feel bored and don't want to fight Dragonfly for the 20th time. Beef can be actualy very useful. Not counting the weightlifting there is the face that the beef is your weapon and armor (for the most part) so you don't need to gear up for fight... or might not have time to gear up in the case of hounds. Wendy and Wes get even bigger advantage of this due to their lower damage. Rider beef is good at early stage when you get really bad luck with walrus drops or just dont feel like bothering with them. Pudgy is... is there I guess... Ok this one needs some buffing because I don't see a reason of having a living Tam'o'Shanter that needs to be maintained. Ornery basicaly turns you into a 1000 hp tank with infinite durability Dark Sword. Just sucks that you need to get the obedience up every time you want to get on it. Default is the best imo. It's reliable unlike Ornery, doesn't become useless in the late game like Rider and is definitely better than Pudgy. And yes, I would love to see more accessories for Beefalo taming and oh my god I would kill for the ability to ride a Koalephant.
  13. You cannot tame a beef by just brushing it. at this point it needs to be ridden and/or fed to keep the domestication rising. Brush is like instant domestication. It is a small value, but it shortens the domestication process by a few days. When you have fully domesticated beefalo you can just brush it for a few days instead of going for a longer ride or feeding it. I wouldn't recommend using dragonpies for feeding. It is much more manageable when you use your twig, grass and berry farms. Twigs come in abundance and I often find myself with an excess of them (unless you have twiggy tree world), berries can be used for fistful of jams, especially when you have juicy berries and grass can be used occasionaly but I do not suggest relying on them as there are other more important things that require it. The last part seems like it shouldn't be possible. If it was near salt licks and you brushed it everyday then there should be no way it would go wild. My guess is that the beef did not have access to salt lick OR it bugged out and didn't realise there was a salt lick OR someone was taking a beef somewhere else and left it for an extended period of time.
  14. Salt lick STOPS domestication decay and this is the only thing it does. While the domestication doesn't drop, the domestication decay rate still increases, so you might have a beef that you don't touch at all and just have it crammed near twenty salt licks. It'll be fine there, but the moment you take it somewhere else without feeding or actively riding it will kickstart that domestication decay right away. This is also the case when the salt licks run out. The only way to get domestication is riding the beef, having it's hunger above 0 or brushing it once a day. So basically, to have a loyal beef you need to: - Keep it close to salt licks to stop domestication decay; - Feed or ride it briefly after long periods of time to reset domestication decay rate; - Feed it a lot or ride it for a longer period of time to regain the domestication that might have been lost in the moments where it wasn't near salt licks, wasn't fed or wasn't being ridden. Alternatively you could brush it if you don't feel like taking it for a ride or using a lot of food.
  15. Salt licks only stop domestication decay. If you did nothing with your beef throughout this time, then all these moments where it wasn't fed with salt lick stacked up and the beef became wild again. You only get benefits of brushing the beef once per day. Doing more than that is wasting your brush' durability. Having it constantly fed is a huge strain on time and resources. Feed it only when taking it for a ride. The domestication will rise when being over 0 hunger OR when riding. I always kept my beef near 4 salt licks and it was fine whenever I made some longer journeys to caves. I always used it at least once per 25 days or so. My guess is that even when unloaded, the beefalo still updates it's domestication. I highly suggest getting some mod showing Beefalo info, such as Beefalo information, Beefalo widget or just an universal Show Me (Origin).
  16. Seasonal Events

    I have feeling that for Klei there are two development periods: - March-September - The calm one where there are no seasonal events and Klei can focus entirely on the main content; - October-February - The chaotic one where there are both events and main content to be done. Best of all, the events cannot be delayed. And let's not forget about Forge and Gorge. Those things can also come out at any time with extra content. Honestly, I feel like time-limited updates are way too frequent for Klei to introduce new mainline content at a reasonable rate.
  17. A secret refresh. Not sure if it's a right move but if it is the one almost everyone wishes to get right now then I suppose it would add some tension. Thank you Klei for your honesty, even if that roadmap is vague, I appreciate that you are still trying to give us as much info without trapping yourselves into a corner.
  18. Yeah I figured. I'm kinda surprised that she's the most played and not Wolf or WX. But then she's literary designed for fighting and everyone is cooking meat based food anyway... except for Wurt.
  19. Wathgrithr. Sounds like some lovecraft fan made that name. Personally I want Wendy to get reworked. I used to main her until I got tired of that damage debuff and Abi dying whenever I went to swamp or fought a boss.
  20. It should be pointing to the right location. Every time the script is launched manualy the server updates without an issue.
  21. This is basicaly a continuation of Starting a server on friend's physical server thread, but I figured making another one with more specific question would attract more attention. So here's the issue. I have a dedicated server on a physical server. I don't really have access to it outside of in-game console and the physical server is in friend's place. This means that I have to constantly pester my friend whenever server updates or stops showing up in server browser. We tried the typical script lines to force the auto-update but they don't work. They were used separately: c:\steamcmd\steamcmd.exe +login anonymous +app_update 343050 validate +quit steamcmd +login anonymous +force_install_dir D:\Servers\DST\ +app_update 343050 validate +quit Of course, the directories are different since the server doesn't have a Documents folder. Any idea on what we could do to force the server to auto-update?
  22. Watchdog is there, although the server never really crashed, so I can't say if it's working. Also what do you mean that there isn't a way for Steamcmd to update without external utilities? Does that mean that every admin needs to manualy update their servers? I am confused. I am also running mods on this server. Is it possible that one of them could prevent the server from updating?

  23. What's The Hardest Season?

    I kinda like summer... I don't really know why. Maybe because caves are safe from rain and freezing. There's already enough things to worry about down there. Also, I like fighting the Antlion. I turn bully into bullied and laugh at his attempts to destroy my stuff. Still, I always turn off wildfires and hate maintaining that one flingomatic to keep my plants from withering. I despise spring though. I am essentialy locked to eyebrella, can't really go to caves and frogs just force me out of my base and any mob farm.
  24. Bump Any other way to make the server auto-update?
