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

      UPDATE: 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. For questions or concerns, the forum discussion can be found below:

  1. Mad Libs!--Another?

    Okay! Next, I will need: Person Title Place Celebrity Verb Famous war or battle Go! ...Notorious
  2. Mad Libs!--Another?

    Okay! Next I need: Adjective Substance/Material An Amount of Money, Any Type A Type of Drug or Medicine Go! ...Notorious
  3. Oh, definitely. XD The pet den is right in the middle of a mixed rockland area that also contains some graves and itty bitty swamplets, so when it got towards nighttime I deliberately aimed for rocks I could mine by firelight? AND got a free gravestone in the shot as a bonus. ...Notorious
  4. Five Years of Don’t Starve

    THAT, is adorable as hell. Much better than what I was gonna suggest--that everybody just go into their individual worlds and show screenshots of their characters dancing, cheering--some celebratory-looking gesture/animation--and/or draw out the number "5" in something on the ground, such as rocks or flowers. Heh. Then--light bulb!--we cut out just the dancing-character parts of every screenshot, and paste them all together into a big fat collage! And maybe put something like "5 YEARS OF NOT STARVING" or something cleverer than that, on top of the collage in big white letters, in the game's font. As for the DEVS doing something to mark the anniversary...I dunno, that's up to them. : P ...Notorious
  5. Mad Libs!--Another?

    Yep. That's what I've been doing the whole time. The idea is to have choices, so I can get different people's styles of humour all mixed up together in there. So, next I need: A Noun Verb Abstract Noun--this one is tricky. An abstract noun is like...a concept, an emotion...um...here: This page explains it way better than I was going to, with tons of examples. There. There ya go. And another noun. Go! ...Notorious
  6. So! Here we are, in the spring of the third year, and absolutely nothing untoward has happened. Hangin' at the base, with all my old stuff (some of which you can't see because of the darkness), including even the stagehand and time jump? what time jump? Here are some more things that didn't happen along our way here: Apparently, my lying down with ONE FOOT right on the fire was enough to block that hand. XD When asked for her opinion on this, Walani was quoted as saying: "Ow." (Well, a bunch of notes that translated as "ow", but...) Earmuffs, morsels, fire...we are livin' the winter HIGH LIFE! YEAH! Me and my lizard buddy. You may have noticed the endo fire there--yep, it's summer. But _I_ didn't skip an entire season('s worth of screenshots)--the GAME did! Go to sleep freezing, wake up the next day roasting...that's 21st-century real life random seasons for ya! On the other hand, this meant that there were lots of still-full-sized mini-glaciers around for me to cool myself off/slake my thirst with. DUDE, it's almost fall _already_? I'll take it! My new "arbor" area--I mean, um, exactly the same one. Yep. Nothing has changed. On the night of her (second) adoption, Fluffbutt decides to explore her goth side. It's winter! Let's show that with...rain? That, is some thick-ass snow. Either that or nature is trying to start a snowball fight with me (seriously, look at some of those things!) And that's all I have to say about that. For now. ...Notorious
  7. Mad Libs!--Another?

    So! Starting off, I need a person (real or fictional, as usual), a title (like President, First Violin, Police Chief, etc.) and a place. GO! ...Notorious
  8. Mad Libs!--Another?

    Yay! By the way, I like your new avatar. BUG-EYED DUPE IS STARING INTO YOUR SOUL.. So, do you want me to do another one, or would someone else like to be the GM/host/Knower of Things this time, or...? I do have others. I just thought I'd give other people a turn in case they wanted one. ...Notorious
  9. Mad Libs!--Another?

    So! I was wondering, would anybody be up for another one of these? If anyone else has/knows where to find a Mad Lib themselves and wants to run it instead, that'd be great too. Just lemme know! ...Notorious
  10. And the funny thing is...a lot of those things in the hard mode already exist with mods! There's at least one that involves wounds, the kindling mod (not the same as "burn yourself unless you use a stick to cook", but it does make campfires harder to start in the first place), and I've been using the Thirst mod myself recently: That's what that bright blue icon on the left is from. It also comes with a lovely well! (yesilikeusingscreenshotsshutup. : P) Of course, this doesn't work for players on console, which is where your idea comes in. The other problem is, not everybody will want the SAME difficulty level, unless you set it up ahead of time and play only with friends who think about the same way about the game as you do. There's also just telling people about the world in the description; but who reads THAT, amirite? I've seen many people join a world that clearly said it was, say, full of walrus camps, and then be shocked that there were walruses everywhere. (facepalms like Walani is doing in the above picture) So basically that's a neat idea, and I myself love tweaking worldgen settings for fun and profit experimentation, but everybody's individual mileage will vary. Also, since that would probably involve a LOT of new programming from Klei and take a while even if they were willing to look into it...for now it's probably best just to use the aforementioned mods. :\ HEY KIDS! WANT SOME UNPREDICTABILITY IN YOUR DON'T STARVE GAME? TRY OUR NEW RANDOMIZED SEASONS! Now with Actual Season Randomiser Mod(TM) expansion pack! (but seriously that's something I do to up the difficulty all the time, that can be done by _any_ player right in the worldgen settings before you start the game. Unfortunately, unless you have mods it'll be the SAME new season lengths every year, but...) ...Notorious
  11. In case anybody was wondering (you weren't) what my opinion about the ACTUAL SUBJECT was, it...well, it isn't that interesting. I kinda agree with Kertinker, in that the "tedium" part doesn't really bother me that much. I mean, if all the harvesting stuff was super-fast, then...what would you do, all day? Would it be all excitement, all-battle, all the time? In that case it wouldn't feel like the same game anymore. I mean, I get that it can be annoying, but...what exactly would you replace all that saved time with, and how would you speed up the harvesting and crafting processes in a non-OP kind of way? Which is why we're all suggesting mods, 'cos I can't think of how that would work in a balanced, fulfilling way. That's the main problem is...if you save all that time, then what do you DO with that time now? There are _so_ many possibilities--and everybody will have their own ideas. I dunno...one of my nicknames for the game is "H.P. Lovecraft's 'Harvest Moon'" for a REASON, and..I kinda _like_ that aspect of it... Quiet routine moments are nice every now and then between the bouts of absolute terror. (shrug) ...Notorious

    Heh...yeah, I thought it was hilarious that I managed to die RIGHT next to Totally Normal Groot Tree, too. XD Also I died among the evil flowers. Which were DARK, LIKE MY SOUL... ...Notorious
  13. Um, no, if the person themselves is bad enough of a person, I think it taints what they say. (I mean, if somebody is enough of a jerk, then even when they say something NICE you may find yourself looking for the hidden sneaky motivation!) It does, it really DOES, make a huge difference _how_ you present your point, because if you do it jerkily enough even people who AGREE with you will get mad! If you're actually trying to convince others with _opposing_ opinions (or even neutral), it gets even worse. "I'm not going to listen to you because I don't like you as a person" may not be logical, no, but it IS very human. We have emotions. Respect them, respect us as people, and we'll be more likely to respect _you_. (Or if nothing else, go with the purely selfish reason to respect other people's feelings--"If I piss this person off enough, they'll punch me!" Although I have to assume Euede at least knew not to talk the way he does on the forums in real life, since I doubt he was always posting to us from a hospital bed.) Euede is actually way toned down from how he was at the beginning of his run on the board, however, in which we had to take him aside and explain in multi-page, point-by-point presentations why _other people's feelings matter AT ALL_, so it's not as if people can't improve I guess. But my GOD are you lucky you weren't around for the old days. (Or maybe you would've found those flame-threads amusing, I dunno. Some people do.) ...Notorious

    My Shipwrecked attempts tend to end like this: (the monster lasagna was a stupid accident, though, I totally didn't pay enough attention to what I was putting in the crock pot. : P) And now, I feel the need for something cute and fun--especially after that other thread. So I present to you: Charlie and the Cats! (yes of course these are mods--this is my "testing random stuff server, so...) ...Notorious
  15. Wow, Korlie, just...wow. Way to call everybody here a bunch of "brainless sycophants" and "zombie followers". Kinda surprised you didn't _actually_ bust out the word "sheeple". So...basically you have the EXACT same "I'm the only sane person in the room" attitude as Euededededewhatever, and are just as snobby about it. Good to know. (adds to Ignore List--'cos, speaking of one short lifetime? I ain't got time for that.) For the record, I and lots of other people here DO, in fact, have problems with the game. They're just not the SAME problems that Mr. Sans Avatar has. THAT'S why his problems don't get addresssed. Not because we think the developers are perfect...but because it takes POPULAR opinion to gradually get things changed, and _his particular opinions aren't popular_. Now, when someone makes a "Make Willow and/or Woodie Great Again" thread, I will be all OVER that s##t like dressing on salad. And so will lots of other people--have you SEEN how many threads there are about that? We're not sycophantic slobbering worshippers. We do have problems with the game. It's just that HIS complaints seem to be more his own personal grievances rather than mass opinions. But he acts as if they are, or, if not, they SHOULD be, and will of _course_ become universal once he explains them for ten pages. And they're not, and never will be. Not until lots of other people happen to already have the same playstyle and attitude towards the game as he does, at least. We don't not listen to Euededewhatever because he's negative. We don't listen to him because he's a _jerk_. And you weren't even around for the earlier days! ...Notorious
