      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. Webber can make friends with spiders and under normal circumstances they'll never attack him. Snaptooths will eat Wormwood up just for having meat on his person, a common circumstance. You could further take the fact that he doesn't lose any sanity when Snaptooths are killed as an implication he doesn't consider them his "friends." But really more than anything, there's no real reason to believe this is a bug, per se. Nothing in the code or any documentation suggests he shouldn't be affected by their insanity aura.
  2. They may not always be hostile to him but they're still monsters.
  3. But that boils down to a suggestion, and not a bug report. It may not be behavior you like, but there's no reason to believe it's not intended.
  4. Spidermonkey Overpopulation

    The pointer to the tree a spider monkey herd is tied to in fact does not persist through saving and loading, observable simply by saving and quitting next to a couple hanging around their home, loading back up, waiting about 5-10 seconds and watching them relocate. That said I'm not sure that's directly responsible for the overpopulation. I can't really tell though because I can't follow the game's herd management logic to save my life. If this tree pointer saving business is fixed, I'd personally like to see something implemented in its place to make spider monkeys more deliberately periodically migrate a bit and spread their territory. Untended forests being overrun with spider creep seems like a sensible way to up danger factor a little. I actually also hope the population doesn't turn out to be a bug. I think the spider monkey population getting uncomfortably dense seems like a perfectly reasonable consequence of failing to go in and cull every now and then.
  5. WX Lost Health

    Sounds like you have a magic flower planted back when there were some issues with its maximum health penalty being applied properly, which was fixed some weeks ago.
  6. Clockwork Rook Damage Bug

    You're mistaken. They've done that damage for as long as I've been playing the game.
  7. I don't really see why this would be expected. Recipes learned and structures prebuilt is saved to the character, and when you merge a Hamlet or SW world with a world from a previous DLC, the character in that world ceases to exist. This is almost certainly intended behavior.
  8. Missing aporkalapse calander

    I may be mistaken, but I think the game avoids placing secret rooms that can only be accessed from the north. This wouldn't be helpful to him as he's not Klei staff. You'd have to zip it up and upload it here. If you're absolutely certain there's no possibility left except a crack hidden on the left side of the screen, there's only two rooms you need to check: the left room in the topmost row on the map, and the leftmost room in the bottom row. Those are the only places where a room could have been placed that would have an entrance that might be covered up by the crafting bar that wouldn't have resulted in visible cracks in another room by which to find them.
  9. You're actually on to something, sort of. They wouldn't spawn all over the world since those objects aren't loaded in at the moment, but when you put the goggles on the game does have to check what IS loaded in to see if needs to draw any of those indicators. Depending on where you are and how strong your system is or isn't that could explain what's going on. A similar sweep of loaded objects has to be done when putting on the infroggles to figure out which objects need the color/lighting adjustments to them that makes living things show up red.
  10. Again, the fact that it's not perfectly logical is irrelevant. You answered your own question: it looks like intended behavior because despite obviously being a gag on thermal goggles, all it reacts to is life. Surely you can't think they actually forgot about fire, one of the most fundamental components of game play? They never once walked by a light source while wearing them during testing? Science in the world of Don't Starve starts with a machine made of logs, some rocks, a couple of wooden wheels, and a lever, all situated on a stool. Check logic at the door.
  11. Wigfrid can't drink coffee, tea, or iced tea

    I think "I like mine black" is just a joke about burning the beans, and even if it was more than that it could just be an out of character comment, as she does make a few now and then. I am however totally for letting her drink tea with the made from pikos rationale because it's ridiculous and I love it. This still doesn't belong on the bug tracker though.
  12. Just because it doesn't make sense doesn't mean it's a bug. This is clearly intended behavior. Whether or not it should be is a matter for the suggestions forum.
  13. Butterflys can be planted as flowers when in interiors

    Just because you like it doesn't mean it's not a bug. That said, flowers can be planted literally anywhere inside or out, so this might not necessarily be unintended behavior.
  14. It's exclusive to Hamlet owners because it was developed as part of the Hamlet DLC. This isn't a bug.
  15. Other ways to do this already exist. Hounds are so trivial to guard against and kill that if it occurred to someone to do something like this hounds are probably not a threat to them anyway.
  16. Piko's can steal "Teleportato" parts.

    All of those reports are from early access. Like I said, some issues that were reported but not dealt with in EA are being handled now if a new report is made. But if you don't want to do it, that's your call.
  17. Piko's can steal "Teleportato" parts.

    Report it again. Things that weren't handled in EA are being dealt with now if new reports are being made for them.
  18. Piko's can steal "Teleportato" parts.

    1. I was actually afraid of something stupid like that but had never gotten around to playing with pikos much and testing it. 2. You should probably actually report that.
  19. Piko's can steal "Teleportato" parts.

    It's been decided that this behavior is fine since pikos just hide what they steal in their trees. I don't really understand it since Splumonkeys/Prime Apes don't destroy items either but aren't allowed to steal important items, but that's Jason's decision.
  20. Abigail tripping these things sucks but the ghosts and nightmare creatures doing so is almost certainly intended.
  21. Wigfrid can't drink coffee, tea, or iced tea

    If you know it's not a bug, why put it on the bug tracker?
  22. What is a tornado staff?
  23. Gold Boulder don't have a proper map icon

    This isn't a bug. Please don't fill up the bug tracker with suggestions and requests.
  24. Controller players can't eat seeds now

    Seems to be the case, yeah.
