      [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. How about also "lists" of mods? So that, if you have a mod installed that you know should not be compatible or is not compatible with other ones and you can't do anything about that, you could just instantly select all the mods in the list? Kind of like how we have presets for the world options!
  2. Agreeing on one thing, doesn't mean we agree on everything, and the disagreement comes with the time sink. Seriously, just do multiple rounds of 7 or 18+ dishes with some other achiements along the way. Getting a place on the leaderboard means nothing. Save yourself some lifetime In terms of steam, the people who are involved are at guilt as to why there's so much shoveware on the platform, continuing to pointlessly boosting their levels because you like to see numbers going up. In terms of this, Klei probably didn't intend for this to happen, but if you waste your time for no reason in particular and then whine about it, part of that is on you. P.S in case anyone is going to bring up playing The Gorge to get higher level as an argument of me being a talking contradiction, that's not really what we're after, is it? It's those darn loot bo... I mean "chests" that we are after that contain skins, which even then have a bit more value than an arbitrary leaderboard. And besides you can take breaks with this, but a 6/7 hour run though? No can do, the gorge craves a snack
  3. Using a silver plate or bowl for a lot of meals is a waste

    Do I really need to demonstrate the math for you? Either way, there are 24 meals for which using a plate is a complete waste, and there are 6 meals that it might be a waste, depending on the circumstances. Though, I think 4 or so of the 6 meals that are dependent, are really "do I want to trade a dish worth of a saphire coin or two for 3 old coins or not?" which probably isn't going to happen. That's 30 meals total that don't always give a net gain of coins in terms of using a silver bowl/plate. I really don't see why Klei couldn't have set dishes to give more saphire coins, they are not that valuable once you get the gate open. You know what, I WILL demonstrate this to you. And I'll take that Carrot Cake as an example @ItsPizzaTime: Say you have 1 silver plate. You serve Carrot cake without silver plate. Net gain 6 old coins, 1 saphire coin. Result is 2 worths of silver plates/bowls, 6 worths of old coins WITH Wes. Result is 1.5 worths of silver plates/bowls, 6 worths of old coins WITHOUT Wes. You serve Carrot cake WITH silver plate. Net gain 3 old coins, 2 saphire coins. Net loss, 1 silver plate, or one worths of saphire coin... TWO if you don't have Wes on your team. Result is 2 worths of silver plates/bowls, 3 worths of old coins WITH Wes. Result is 1 worths of silver plates/bowls, 3 worths of old coins WITHOUT Wes. Do you get it now? Using a plate for soomething like a carrot cake even, is a total of net loss. It's ONLY a net gain if you want to swap out one dish for one bowl, but that's it, and you probably will never be in that scenario.
  4. Using a silver plate or bowl for a lot of meals is a waste

    @Virusei the fact that there are dishes for which the plates are useful, doesn't take away that there are a lot that don't have any reason to use a plate for. That's all I really wanted to say tbh. @ItsPizzaTime that would only be useful only if you have a Wes on your team. You should have one on your team anyway, but that's not always the case. And if it isn't, plating Carrot Cake still stays a waste. And it's a waste regardless, because you can NOT plate it and get one saphire coin back, meaning you get an extra plate if you have a Wes on your team regardless of whether you silver-plate it or not, which means there's no point in silver-plating it. In fact, you get less normal coins, which makes it worse! This is basic calculus, how is this not understood? You could not use a plate for the Carrot Cake and still end up with the same amount of plates left over, PLUS 3 more coins than if you WERE to use a plate. The only scenario that you would need to actually plate the Carrot Cake in is if you needed to make two silver Bowls, or one if you don't have Wes, but again, you get a bunch of them from the safes, and you can get saphire coins from meals that don't need to be plated or actually are good to plate in general (i.e. giving red marks/favors from plating). @xyrilyn yeah, I'm not saying using plate for all meals is bad. In fact, a lot of them it's good, as you can get favors and/or red marks with plating which will be essential in victory. But anything that just gives 1 extra saphire coin from using a plate on than not using a plate on is a total waste.
  5. Question is, why do you even play for that long? 65k points from a 6-hour run is nothing if you can just do 2/3 runs of 7 meal runs and get about the same amount of points in about 50 minutes. Why are people doing this to themselves? There is literally no point, you're just making dumb decisions. You get score for achievements even when you have done the achievement, and you can get 50k xp right out the gate by doing a single 7 meal run, which will take you like 15 - 20 minutes! EDIT: wait, so the whole reason you're time-sinking is because of an arbitrary leaderboard that doesn't give you anything other than show how much you're willing to sink your life into the ground? This kind of behavior is why steam's trading cards have created a giant shovel-ware market, getting levels that amount to basically nothing.
  6. The only thing you would want a blue coin other than a silver dish/bowl for is the gate key. But since you can't serve it with a dish/bowl for the first meal, it becomes an impossible task to create a new Deserts in particular seem to have this waste issue; Carrot cake, Cheesecake, Pudding, Scone, Trifle all give you one or two saphire coins when you serve with a plate, but nothing extra. This results in the plate being a waste, as you'll just turn that saphire coin into a new bowl/plate for the next meal. You could argue that using a bowl, you could then turn the bowl into a plate, or vice versa, for the next meal, if you need, but that's if you don't do salt runs, which you should be anyway. The only way this could be a non-waste is if you got at least 2 coins for serving with a plate for every meal every time. It may be too late, but it just baffles me that none noticed during the beta at all, considering that right after the live went up, somebody did a solo run of 7 meals just 3/4 hours into the live being active. And what the heck is up with Candy giving you LESS for serving with a silver plate?
  7. Okay? Could cause problems, but I guess reverse-checkboxing if you want most mods could save time. What we really need is a search bar! Sometimes the mods are there, but are named with weird characters in-front that I can't find them and assume the steam glitched them.
  8. 655 satisfied cravings | 6:33:40 time | 62524 points run :)

    Why? It's 65k appeasement points on top of some extra ones for achievements. You could do a few runs of 7 or less meals or 18+ meals with some other achievements done and you'd get the same, if not more, in less time. This is more just for show off than anything. A big time sink more or less.
  9. The base game... single player? This is the multiplayer section. Again, the fact that you can light structures on fire allows for some unnecessary griefing, but it also allows for newbies to just take a fire staff/torch and accidentally light everything on fire, cause that has happened even for professional players (case in point). The need to have any structure lit on fire, generally, does not outweigh the griefing potential that doesn't need to be there.
  10. They are renewable though. World regrowth? Please don't spread misinformation. Yes, things get disease, but there are ways to circumvent this. It also provides for a bigger need of basic resources in the long term. Having a gekko farm up means it's easier to get a ton of grass anyway.
  11. You can beat toadstool without losing ANY armor. Most of the attacks are very easy to dodge, even when it comes to his stomp attacks. I end up losing like 1 or 2 helmets AT BEST if I don't have a bone armor on. So no, it wouldn't become a huge resource sink. It's already a huge resource sink when it comes to weather pains if you don't have a woodie to help you, but none seems to be complaining about that.
  12. That's a really bald and quite frankly dumb statement imo. Making things too real would kill a game. Leaving a griefing option just for the sake of having some arbitrary "realism", when griefing is still a huge issue despite the tools we have against it. In the Gorge, you can catch rabbits in a trap. You have an axe. You can't axe them. Realism broken reeeeeeeee!
  13. the Gorge along with the Forge

    Running every year, it would get dull, especially if there were going to be events running one after another, after they make one more or so. May be every 2 years? But reoccurring events would be great. Otherwise, all that good work, gone to waste some great recipes, textures and everything we got from The Gorge!
  14. I should ask why there are so many bug tracker sections to begin with? If it's because of DLC, that's going to mess up things. @JanH or whomever, I would suggest having all bugs, archived or otherwise, in one section, and just have some sort of a tag system with [Archived] attached to the ones that are, and [Shipwrecked] and/or [Reign of Giants] available for bugs that are/may be for specific DLC. Multiple sections and various ways to submit bugs just make things ever-so-harder for us all. Sometimes you don't know which DLC is creating the issue,or where to post it if it's a combination of two DLC or not having a certain DLC, etc. Already there are 4 versions of the game for single player that Klei needs to keep track of: * Don't Starve * Don't Starve + Reign of Giants * Don't Starve + Shipwrecked * Don't Starve + Reign of Giants + Shipwrecked May be even a fifth if new bugs occur due to someone purchasing Shipwrecked first and then Reign of Giants. With Hamlet that will be at least 4 more versions of the game to keep track of! Better keep all bugs for the one game in one place, just with tags to get a better grasp of the issues. So please, push this ("active" Don't Starve Shipwrecked bug tracker) into this (active Don't Starve bug tracker) or the other way round or something, if you can! Btw, the sections are a huge mess as is on the forum, and it's hard to figure out where I am sometimes. Some more visual aid for that would be great. Where do you post bugs for IOS/Android btw? In just the normal section of IOS/Android? That just creates another layer of confusion! Just keep all bugs in one section!
  15. Is the information about the spawn chance still accurate? I have been riding like 50 waves and still no Shark. 5% chance means every 20 waves should make it spawn, but it didn't. Also it says that the Tiger Shark has a chance to spawn by Fishing, Reeling and Catching. What do each of these mean? Does fishing mean when you put your fishing rod in the pool? Or does it mean something else? I have been clicking and unclicking on a shoal like 50 times now and she doesn't spawn, even though it says it's 1% chance to spawn. Am I just getting bad luck or does it mean something else? Need to be specific here! http://dontstarve.wikia.com/wiki/Tiger_Shark
