      [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. [Game Update] - 276158

    Yeah, that's exactly what it was.
  2. [Game Update] - 276158

    Okay then, guess I'll see what I can get done on the weekend.
  3. [Game Update] - 276158

    Doesn't this event... end tomorrow? I've sat it out because I was busy moving back to my home town and didn't have an internet connection for the first week.
  4. The Gorge - First Impressions

    If @Clwnbaby couldn't beat it last night with a consistent team and voice chat, I suspect the win% for randoms without voice chat will be 0. I suspect the most common ingredient in the Gorge will be salt. Remember how acrimonious the Forge was with randoms in gold speed attempts? I suspect just trying to win at all will be like that, or worse. Edit: I just got a call from someone named Clouseau, something about wanting his suspects back. Any idea what that means?
  5. I just realized

    Y'know, the raccoon/baboon counterpart to perds, merms, and pigs. It's one of the cut ideas you can find in the concept art, like the clockwork pawn.
  6. What Was The Old, Old, Portal?

    Yup. Never saw the light of day. Kind of like Slipstor, in that regard.
  7. Attack period

    As for freshness, I believe it just takes the weighted average. So if you add a fresh berry to 10 stale berries, all you'll achieve is making the fresh berry stale. Cooking reduces the amount of freshness that has expired by half.
  8. Be creative topic

    Or aggressive rock lobsters.
  9. Does that even save resources? A golden pickaxe costs 2 gold and 4 twigs, and has 132 uses. It takes 10 uses to mine a fully-grown marble shrub, so you get 13.2 per luxury pickaxe. A gunpowder costs 1 charcoal, 1 egg, and 1 nitre. That egg could have been given to the pig king, so it's worth 1 gold. If you're only blowing up 6 marble shrubs with a gunpowder, then 13.2 cost 2.2 gold, 2.2 nitre, and 2.2 charcoal. It's more expensive than the luxury pickaxe. The resource-efficient options for mining marble shrubs are werebeaver, shadow minions, and bearger. Explosives are fast, though.
  10. Victoria Items

    That's just a fire pit with a frame for hanging a pot, good for boiling water or cooking. You can see the hook that the pot hangs from. It's not a drying rack.

  12. The event thingy

    1837-1901, or maybe 1832-1901. So you're not wrong, barely. Of course, the William Carter puzzles start 6 months into the Edwardian era and end in 1906, so I hate to break it to you, but Maxwell already has a canonical Victorian outfit: the unshadow suit. He was, eh... not dapper.
  13. For fruit-based monster lasagna, of course. Y'know, for werepigs. What else is Wigfrid going to do with manure?
  14. I mean, you've taken over half a biome now, and you're shifting from gathering your resources yourself to automated mass production. I'd say that counts. In my 1200 day DS world, I didn't really consider my base a mega base because it's just barely a couple crock pots, a couple ice boxes, enough storage space for my stuff (admittedly, quite a lot), and 24 drying racks because spiders, moles, and birds can add up quickly. But that's it. There's no industrialized meat production; I still have to hunt everything myself. And I only built 1 pig house. But I came to realize that it was, in fact, a mega base in spite of its sparse and minimalist construction. There's a small durian farm to the north with only 8 farms in it, but it has its own support infrastructure (bird cage, 4 crock pots, ice box, manure storage). There's supply chests and lightning rods at all the touch stones. There's lightning rods to protect the tallbird nests. There's a distant logging site with nothing important around it so I can use the old bell without worry. There's a winter camp with 6 drying racks, a small kitchen, and a little storage up by the MacTusks. There's cobblestone arenas to safely fight bosses in two biomes. There's a fire pit and birdcage by the pig king so I can convert monster meat into eggs and then gold. I've got a road to the reed trap and lightning rods to protect it. All the tumbleweed spawners are caged and connected by roads. All the natural roads and wormholes have been joined by cobblestones. There's the emergency seed bank I built out in the desert with a birdcage and backup plant samples so I don't need to rely on luck to get a seed for each plant. And there's my four bee boxes that I always forget exist, but they're placed in a small biome I'd specifically designated for them. So it's sort of a nebula base - up close it looks like there's hardly anything there, but zoom out the map and a pattern emerges. It's a loose collection of microservices to a conventional mega-base's Weibo. So I'd say there's a few criteria for mega bases: It's taken over the majority of a biome. It's gone beyond immediate survival needs and started being planned, organized, and decorative. It spans multiple biomes with a network of roads connecting sections with specialized roles. It has separate sections that are experimental in nature, just to test a design idea. It has emergency preparedness features built across the map in anticipation of future threats. It has automated and/or mass-production of resources. Pick any two from the list.
  15. About a 0.4% chance from normal gifts, by my count. Sample size is 540.
