  1. Showering also removes all debuffs related to becoming wet. Wet feet und sopping wet cause stress and can be removed faster when a Dupe showers. Other than that the only thing showering does is giving you +3 morale for a cycle.
  2. Gotta go fast! At least until the lag drags it down...
  3. 1. You don't have to deal with ambient heat for roughly 300 cycles since the heat capacity of your starting biome is enough to soak up heat from batteries, generators etc. Just don't smelt anything aside from gold and you should not experience any problems. Your Dupes will still do fine at temperatures around 50°C. 2. Significant heat producers (smelters) are best placed in the ice biome for passive cooling. Up to now I have never managed to melt all the water in even a single ice biome so don't underestimate the amount of heat you can dump in there. However, really high heat producers (steel smelters) will have problems with heat conductivity. 3. Aquatunter + Steam turbine. Basically, you get a cooling fluid (water) and run it in a circle through the aquatuner until it reaches your desired temperature. Lay pipes through anything you want cooled and let the cooling fluid soak up the heat. The aquatuner is placed in an insulated chamber with a bit of water to produce steam which is then used by the steam turbine to convert the heat to electricity. You can build such a setup before 100 cycles have passed so you are not really in a hurry to build it. 4. Wheezeworts are pretty weak since they are hard to set up and don't provide a lot of cooling. Since the steam turbine has been patched into it's current state I never used them for cooling anything important.
  4. Woah .... hold on! No reason to be that cruel to new players.
  5. Prioritize getting Dupes with the Anemic, Noodle Arms, Flatulent, Gourmet, Bottomless Stomach and Mouth Breather traits.
  6. The only biome you can't run your Dupes through is the oil biome with ~80°C. All other biomes won't cause any issues for your Dupes. Even the cold biome can be trespassed safely as long as your Dupes don't stand in freezing cold water. Slimelung is only a problem if you play on miserable/fatalistic wiht no passive immunity regeneration. On standard it's almost impossible to kill your Dupes with reasonable amounts of Slimelung. If you sweep off the slime and place Deodorizers everywhere the Slimelung will never be a problem. On Algae Terrariums: They are even more useless since they don't stop producing oxygen once they get overpressurized. This means popped eardrums everytime you bring your Dupes next to them. Algae Deoxydizers are simply superior in any conceivable way.
  7. Tooth Trap Trouble

    They do have a pretty awful delay. It is better to place them on a free space outside your base and lead the hounds onto them. Thanks to their fighting (or biting) animation they stop and stand still for a while. Mostly this delay in the hounds movement is enough to trigger the trap reliably. So you have to kite the hounds into the traps. Oh, and 3 traps are too less. I wouldn't bother to make a field beneath 10 traps. Beefalo are just so much more efficient!
  8. What Was Your First Death?

    Basically I first died to bees in my first winter. After stocked up seeds weren't that efficient as a 15 days long food source a treeguard (which I defeated *yay*) drained my sanity so my last hope turned into beardlings. I thought: "What would a starving animal in the middle of the winter do?" Of course, hunt for honey. I thought bees couldn't spawn from wild beehives but apparently they could.
  9. The largest maze EVER!

    Well it's basically very easy! Just go left, right, up, left, left. right, straight ahead for 10 blocks, right, down, left, right, up, left, left, left, turn around and immediately right, left, left, left, right, right, right, once more up again down, take the first exit to your left, right, right, right, left, left, left, right, left, right, left aaand go down. See, it's absolutely easy, just took me 15 and a half hours!
  10. Tips for a newbie

    Seeds are a terrible source of food to stock up for the winter. They caused my first death in Don't Starve due to starvation. So yeah, basically you learn from your deaths. Never fool around with Dragonfly + no armor (especially with Maxwell). Just don't attack pengulls. Splumonkeys are real di*** not so kind animals. And so on.
