      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. In the attached image, the water flows from the top into right tank until full, then middle until full, then left until full. That part is fine. However, when I decide to open the output (to the right of screen) for some reason it starts by emptying the FIRST tank instead of the leftmost tank. Once it drains that one, it moves to the middle tank and then finally the left tank. Obviously, I'm disinfecting this water and I'd like it to draw from the tank that has been in there the longest. I'm sure this is a pipe priority issue (it always is) but I've tried all kinds of combinations and it still wants to draw from the righthand tank. I use the pipe priority chart that I've found here to solve most issues but this one is vexing me. Any advice is appreciated.
  2. I noticed two bugs while I was playing with my friend in multi (My friend was the host of the server also): My custom item doesn't want to show (inventory pic and other animation pics), while my friend could see it When my friend tried to give me custom item, my game crashes with the error "[string "scripts/components/inventotyitem.lua"] :10: attempt to index field 'inventoryitem' (a nil value)" Just on a note: the string №10 in inventoryitem.lua is local function onowner(self, owner) self.inst.replica.inventoryitem:SetOwner(owner) end I just can't understand what's wrong... Maybe something wrong with animation folders in the first problem? But then what's wrong with the second one? I haven't seen any topics about that so i'm calling for help! Here's my mods, because ig maybe here's something wrong with all of them, uhuuuhhh mods.zip
  3. I am having troubles finding a way to code a mod for Wolfgang. You see, I want to mod Wolfgang to that his health is consistently 150 at wimpy form, 200 at normal form, and 300 at mighty form. It also want his consistently 75% speed at wimpy, 100% at normal, and 125% at mighty. His hunger will stay. I would also like him to lose sanity at 1.5 rate when near monsters and the night. I know it's a lot to ask for, but I am bad at coding and don't really know what I'm doing when it comes to Wolfgang. If you are going to help me, please leave the whole thread of code for Notepad++ for the modmain.lua, thanks to all.
  4. i tried to make an dedicated server but i cant find one that actualy work ... is there an guide updated for 2020?
  5. Hello everyone! So I opened two maps and they just got INCREDIBLE world generation! Currently I'm playing with some new people in the community and would just love to copy these maps. Does anyone know how do I get their seeds? Where I can put it to reroll them?
  6. Hi! As the title says, im trying to make a custom charater able to use Maxwells Diary. So far, Ive seen and downloaded other steam Workshop mods of characters who can, but Im unable to understand what part of the code makes him able to. Ive even tried copying the entire code of maxwell inside my character.lua but no avail, it does not crash but he cant use his diary. Maybe its the diary itself the thing I have to modify? If so, I would be even more lost Thanks, any help is welcome
  7. hey can some one please please help me, ik that the coding's for perks go into the character lua I just don't know where it needs to be in, dose it need to be in local prefabs or local fn = function(inst) please help its very confusing every time I try looking this up and theres 0 videos on what to do.
  8. So, as the title says, I need some help to make an equipable item open you a tab when you equip it (or when you drop it in the floor, like the codex umbra), from where you can "craft" maxwell shadows. Ive been trying to port the code from the codex umbra, but so far ive only got a ton of errors. Any help or orientation would be of much use, Thanks! The item should only usable by this custom character, and not anyone else, pretty much as the codex umbra. I just cant seem to make the code work, even with the codex as reference. I dont get how it works exactly, so Im a bit lost alastor.zip This is my character code right now, I removed everything about this topic because Im unable to make it work.
  9. Hi there great people of this forum first things first, i'm attempting to ''clone'' a basic mod, to change the art and items in it. following the instructions i saw in the dst files itselt, "start by choosing what you want to edit and copy/paste it, and edit to create my own mod" etc i did that. edited all the images, no problem, if i try to just edit the ''visuals'' of vanilla things i can make them work ingame, BUT the problem is when i copy and paste the files to a new folder custom named to create a 'whole new mod'' which is the goal since i want to upload in the workshop and have my friends who play with me always actually ''see'' what i ''see'' here because i have a few vanilla things ''only visually edited'' in my 'personal dst files' replacing the 'vanilla' images, names, or proprieties, so only i can see the thing i've edited for fun but i'm trying to make them 'actual mods' so i can share with the friends in my server. anywayy this one i tried to start with is a kittykit, it has a special item 'catnip' i've edited all the images from the kittykit, and all the strings from the characters interaction with it, names, description etc, these worked already when i only messed around with the strings, and images on the original mod so only i could see it ingame like that, all other players would see the ''original art and dialogs'' from the original mod. since i haven't changed the 'file names' ut since i'm trying to copy and edit to make a new mod, i have to change all the words to represent the 'new mod' like i've called it a 'black kitty' and all the images from the kitty i've changed the words to 'blackkitty' and all the ones which showed the word for the other custom item to ''catnip' since the new item i want to be a catnip pack. BUT then comes the error it says it can't find the catnip.zip but i've changed all the words to catnip, made sure it's all in .zip format because i've read in another question/forum this couldbe the problem, the file being in .rar format, or the files inside in a different format, but idk what to fix, there where 2 folders with this same name in the original mod, one 'exported' one, with a folder inside and a .zip inside this one, where there was a png, a animation and build xml inside and they're still there, only changed the image inside to a catnip, and the name to 'catnip' aswell and there's an anim folder with a catnip.zip inside with a anim and build .bin and a .png and .tex '-' so i don't know what isn't being found to try to fix it nor which of these 2 folders with the same name is the one returning this error. anyway the files are below.. i hope someone can help me, if i ran into this problem in the future maybe i can fix them aswell with some instructons given to this one. i've tried searching for this inthe forum aswell but they weren't the same problem but with other file extensions and were fixed with other steps or insertings certain strings/codes in other files i even tried following a few but in the end the instructions didn't match my error so i ended up in the same place i've started so decided to ask here the mod folder below, i've uploaded to my drive -i've never shared a link from there so if anyone can visualize/download the files just let me know i'll try to figure it out how to share it properly https://drive.google.com/open?id=1VpsSACHdpc1OMMez_5b9ucSIEpNN9VII edit: adding a .zip of the whole mod itself,i though i coulnd't upload it directly in here but aparently it's possible haha Blackkitty mod.zip and the image log i got when trying to run a test world with this mod [as it's own standalone mod] activated ----._. i talk a lot, i know....sorry, but please bear with me....loveu already and thanks for the patience -----
  10. Help. I want to build my mod but auto compiling only work with my ghost build. To explain when i select my character he become invisible but when he dies he can be see. also when I try to manual to compile it I got this: here is my mod. workshop-1997942430.rar
  11. So recently, I got back into relearning how to make custom characters using the extended character template. As a good friend of mine wanted me to make two for him. And all was going well until I went to test out my progress in game, only for it to turn up invisible. I searched for some answers and found the animation folder wasn't compiling after deleting it. I've looked through my folder and I can't seem to find the issue. So far I have only changed around the names and mod info and drew all the assets for the character. I'd be very thankful if anyone could help me out. I included a zip of the character folder. szuzu.zip
  12. I was trying to make a new type of bee, and I seem to have gotten it mostly working, except for some kind of error in their pollination. I wanted to make them require less flowers for pollination so I made them their own pollinator component, but this broke the game unless I also made a new brain and findflower behavior to go with it. I think the brain is working ok, as spawned bees will wander, properly aggro, return home at dusk, and seek flowers, but after they find a flower and rest on it, they become perpetually stuck flying above it and no longer move until dusk comes, at which point they return home. I figure since the other behaviors are working it must be the new findflower that's causing problems but I can't see where. (Also if someone could help me figure out how to give the player a regular bee when these are caught instead of the new bee that would also be appreciated, but that's secondary) findflowernew.lua honeybeebrain.lua betterpollinator.lua
  13. So then, decided to make an update for my mods by adding recipe tabs Loaded the world with mods and here's a problem: Recipe tabs isn't character_only (the other players on server has that tab too), but when i'm trying to add character_only tag, like chtab = AddRecipeTab (STRINGS.NAMES.CHTAB, 998, "images/hud/chtab.xml", "chtab.tex", "chonlytag", nil, false) Then my recipe tab doesn't working at all I searched for mods where tabs are working normally and they is character_only, but scripts are totally same as mine! So i dunno what to do o^o I need help P.S.: Ah, i forgot to say. I have one mod that worked correctly with custom recipe tab and with character_only tag, but after update tab doesn't working. Maybe here's something with the game, or the scripts have changed?
  14. I have this working perfectly but what i'm trying to do is create multiple items instead of just one, what do I do with this code to make it so I create multiple anememy traps? local dug_trap_starfish = Recipe("dug_trap_starfish", { Ingredient("redgem", 4), Ingredient("trap_teeth", 2)}, RECIPETABS.WAR, TECH.SCIENCE_TWO) I thought it was num = * but I don't know.
  15. I had an idea to make a mod to buff Willow's lighter only when it's being held by her. I want it to be brighter and use no fuel but only when being held by her. I found a few mods that do similar things to what I want but I haven't been able to figure out how to put all the pieces together properly. This mod(Infinite Lighter) makes the lighter infinite, and has an option to allow other characters to cook on the lighter, which would be nice to be able to preserve as an option. This mod (Twigs and Matches) makes the lighter not use fuel while being held by Willow, but I don't think it plays nice with the Willow rework. And this mod for Don't Starve classic makes the lighter much brighter. If someone could help me put this together, or at least help get me started that would be much appreciated.
  16. someone have an idea if i can forbid them to back if all atmo docks are full ? any automation ?

    I've tried everything, from uninstalling to disabling certain dlc and i have no idea how to resolve this. This error appears on start-up meaning i cannot play the game at all. Please help.
  18. So, i decided to add an item to my character mod, but here's the problem. I dunno, what to do with recipe icon, bc i added the way to .xml and .tex files in AddRecipe function and stuff, but it still won't show. Maybe i'm just a little bit dummy, but i'll be very pleased, if someone will help. o~o Paul McCartney.zip
  19. Hey y'all, thanks for taking the time to read this. Short disclaimer: I'm terrible at modding and know almost zero about coding, but I can follow directions and I thought I did for this character mod using the tutorial that everyone and their mother knows about. So when I get the error telling me to check the log for details, I did that, and to be honest, I couldn't find a darn thing (because I don't know what to look for). So if any kind soul could tell me what ludicrously tiny error I made to cause this...error, that'd be awesome. Also, if anyone could give me the quick rundown on how to make it so my character knows a recipe, I.E Fire Staff and/or Ice Staff, that'd be cool too, but it isn't a priority. And seriously, thank you for your time! Edit: I don't think I really explained it well enough, but what I'm trying to do is MAKE a character. Sorry if I confused anyone. log.txt eonthespellsword-DST.zip
  20. I want to make a chracter who loses sanity per min when his temperature is low and gains sanity per min when his temperature is high, but I don't know what to do.
  21. My mod icons keep showing up like this I don't know how to fix it.
  22. whenever i try to run the code it will work till the actually action happens saying "attempt to index combat (nil value)" it happens whenever the attack happens and this only actually accrues when caves are turned on; any help is appreciated local touch = State{ name = "touch", tags = { "doing", "busy", "prechanneling","touch" }, onenter = function(inst) inst.AnimState:PlayAnimation("channel_pre") inst.AnimState:PushAnimation("channel_loop", true) inst.sg:SetTimeout(0.7) end, timeline = { TimeEvent(7 * FRAMES, function(inst) inst.components.locomotor:Stop() inst.sg:RemoveStateTag("busy") end), }, ontimeout = function(inst) inst:PerformBufferedAction() ---------> this is when the error happens inst.AnimState:PlayAnimation("channel_pst") inst.sg:GoToState("idle", true) end, } AddStategraphState("wilson_client", touch)
  23. I want to make a mod about power up crockpot foods. The idea is to give attention to underrated and forgotten crockpot recipes to make them more useful. Recipes like meatballs, pierogis, meaty stew, etc are too viable in the meta. concept: -Spicy chili gives 5x damage modifier for 5 min and does the wolfgang buff animation. -Turkey dinner gives extra 20 hearts for 5 minutes (upgrade effect like WX). -Fruit Medley gives 20 extra speed like walking cane. -Ice cream gives 20 extra sanity for 5 minutes (upgrade effect like WX) ...etc I tried looking into javascript and notepad++ tutorials and DST mod forum. It was confusing but I'm able to learn the basics such as adding numbers with variables and typing text. I looked into Tykvesh's Battle Horn mod script as a reference because it uses the same mechanics. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=906612255&searchtext=horn I need all the help I can get to make this dream possible.
  24. I have new textures for my character 2nd form but i dont know how to do a changing textures in the game where can i put codes and the rest. I want to do warrior, when he will have less that 50sanity then will transform into a god warrior with boosted damage and speed. Sombody have a example of a transforming char? Or a tutorial? Ty
  25. General advices Need help? Be helpful! Add as much info and code as possible: too often do people omit modmain.lua and modinfo.lua or reduce the crash log to the last line. Upload the files you're working with. Link the guides and tools you're using whenever possible. Detail the steps you're following. Don't make people guess what you're doing. Be specific! Is it a crash? A new feature you want? Porting from DS? Trouble with animation? State it in the title so people who know about it can see it right away. "Help with my character" means essentially nothing since characters can do pretty much anything. Don't be a jerk. Being nice is usually a good way to get people to help you. Search the log for error. One of the first step when you have a problem with a mod is to take a look at the log. When a crash occurs, the log could provide you useful informations about what is wrong. You could find the log in C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\Documents\Klei\DoNotStarveTogetherANewReignBeta (If you are in the beta branch) Or C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\Documents\Klei\DoNotStarveTogether (classic branch) Usually, informations will be in the "client_log.txt" Sometimes, a crash will happen server-side, so you must look at the server log. Search in C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\Documents\Klei\DoNotStarveTogetherANewReignBeta\Cluster_1\Master With "DoNotStarveTogetherANewReignBeta" your current branch, "Cluster_1" your current save, "Master" if the crash happen on surface, and "Caves" if the crash happen on caves. Look at the "server_log.txt" Now you have an error log. If you can, try to understand what the error log says. Some errors could easily be fixed by yourself. You could also try a search to see if someone encountered the same problem. If it's not the case, you could create a topic. Title. The first thing people will see is the title. There is a lot of topic asking for help, so "help pls with a mod", "I need help" "[URGENT] Need help" isn't a good title, because it doesn't give a clue about what the problem is. Since people helping here are doing this in their free time, and since every modder have his strong point and weak point, your best option is to have a clear title, with informations about what you are searching. This way, people able to help you could see what help you need even before opening the topic. For example "How to create a perk for my character" "My character mod is crashing (Mod and Error log in topic)", "How to make an aura healing others players ?". You will gain a lot of time with a clear title, and people will be more likely to help. Content of your topic. Your topic must contain a clear explanation about what you need. If you are asking for help because of a crash, provide the error log (you've seen before how to obtain it), and attach your mod, so people could take a look at it. You must zip your mod first, then you can see an option "drag files here to attach, or choose files". Attach the zip file. This way, everyone could download your file and see what is wrong. When searching the cause of a crash, looking at the code is often mandatory, so you'll gain a lot of time by attaching mod in your first post. Usefuls links and tools.
