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

      Aug 14th We aren't going to be able to start taking claims today - we just got the valid codes from 505 that we need to verify vouchers given on receipts and we can't process claims until those are processed and there are quite a few of them - so it's going to take several hours to process. .  We anticipate that if all goes well, things should be ready within the next couple days. Sorry for the delay, we want to make sure that this system goes smoothly for those affected by this issue. Aug 9th Hey Everybody. We are just about ready to start replacing discs, so I want to give you a quick update on how this will work. Purchasers in North America that were given digital codes either from us or on their receipt will be able to use their codes on our store to order a new full retail boxed copy of the game including controller skin. We will be handling these replacements ourselves as we do not have an adequate distribution channel to send to SIEE players outside of North America.  North American players who purchased after 4/26/2018 should already have this code on the bottom of their receipt. If you purchased before this date and do not have a code yet, check out this page for directions on getting your code.  SIEE Players outside of North America will need to use a different process to claim a replacement through 505 directly we will have details on that soon.  We are making sure everything is in order right now and expect to go live with disc replacements on 8/14 and will post here with more info.    Aug 7th
      The discs are now in our possession so we can get moving on sending out replacements. I know this has taken way too long to get resolved, we have been doing literally everything we can to push this along as much as we can. Now that we have those discs we can get you all fixed up.  We're finalizing things on our end but we're no longer dependent on 505 to resolve this end of the issue. We are finalizing our process for getting replacement orders processed and we anticipate that we will start this process sometime this week.  July 9th
      We are still waiting on 505 and waiting for them to send us discs.  June 6th
      We've reached out to 505 again.  We are extremely limited in what we can do in all of this, all we can really do is ask what happens next and relay the information we are given.  So far, the information we have been given at this point hasn't really panned out as it was supposed to, so I hesitate to post any more information as it's proven to be unreliable.  I'll post more when I have more.  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. Hey, I got the idea to start a conversation with ONI players, new and experienced, to which we discuss how we play in our games and his we survive. Tell me how you survive, and with time I'll show how I play. I'll probably edit into the original post.
  2. "Worst Case" strategy: Important notes: If you see bread on 2nd turn, restart. While you are waiting for the beginning of a new round, scream at your comrades, this will prepare you morally for the next game, in which there will be bread again. So, pray to Vegan God. There are 4 bowls and 4 plates in 3 safes in total. If you are playing without Wes, you will be forced to buy additional ones for 2 Sapphire Coins. In table above, you could see how many Silver you will have if God of Luck hates you. In worst case even with this list you have tiny chance to not have Plate on "Round 19". "Bowl(-3+)", means that it is seventh Bowl you need, and "+" means that you should have enough of Sapphire Coins to buy one. If "Silver" cell is empty you shouldn't serve that meal. Remember that this is guaranteed (hi 2nd bread :3), but not optimal route. There are known trick; if Gnaw wants fish at 10 you will see Meat at 11, and such situation could repeat in all rounds, 14-15, 18-19 etc. The game has a lot of meat recipes and as a rule they are the most valuable in terms of points. So, pray to Meat God too. In situations where 10-14-18 is not fish, you will have pasta, there are small variety of pasta, so you will not have to many points at the end, use this round to refill Sapphire Coins. On start of run, use spoiled potatoes to grow 2 wheats, for 1 flour, get flour when you will run for salt rack. Thanks to this you will make "Jelly Roll" and not "Fist Full of Jam" and will have 2 additional coins. Sounds funny but this is critical if you play solo/duo and have no Wes in situation when you receive Buckets in first safe. Starting from round 14, you will have situation when you should cook what is left, so remember what you cooked before. Count all garlics, tomatoes, flours, spices that you will need in the game and split them in 2-3 runs, there is no point in running 10 times just to buy 1 pack of seeds. Remember seeds will not rot if you will live them packed. Maxwell is best character for speed runs, ex.: live the book surrounded by trees and run for first 3 potatoes for "Round 2", run back and you will see 10-15 logs. Leave book in new place, later plant wheat and run for salt, pick new 10-15 logs and buy manure, use it on wheat and run for safe with wheat. Crab Ravioli is best recipe in game in terms of score, so always cook it at "Round 7". You should always try to cook 3-4, 7-8, 10-11-12, 14-15-16, 19-20 together to save time. Therefore, prepare the ingredients in advance. Last desert requires syrup, you should cook it in additional Cookpot at "Round 17" to save time. Best score-wise route in game requires not only "no 2nd bread" and "fish/meat combo", but situation when you not cooked cream or onion soup. If yes, cook it after "Round 17", cook any "Valor" fish and meat left in your recipe book and salt them. Wait until "Round 21", if it is Soup/Snack (Cheese if Cream) give your Soup, if "Round 22" fish, give fish, meat and leave. Because of such logic Tournament table consist of teams with 20/21/23 meals. Everything said above is best for your "food score", but in order to win you need to look at your time, speed is the key. Credits and afterword: This guide will not help anyone because event is over, but we still share it if someone whants to know how guys from ladder gain so many points. It is not about cheating and being and asian guy, it is just math and luck (eg. time for restarts). https://steamcommunity.com/id/leinstay https://steamcommunity.com/id/dearcreamdeer gorge.docx
  3. Tournament Strategies

    Hi everyone, I'm creating this topic because after almost 4 hours of gameplay, me and my team couldn't succeed of doing more than 2100 points (acording to gorge Mod). Have anyone find any way to get more than 3500 points?
  4. 7 Dishes win strat.

    This was for beta. For the Fresh Guide check here.
  5. Link to the episode in question (13, I should have known). (20 min long) Link to the playlist with all 13 episodes if you're crazy bored and have time to kill. So as you'll notice, things start to happen around the halfway point. What do you think my next priorities should be? Meat effigy? New clothing? Do you think it's safe to get my stuff back?Thanks for checking it out, post any and all feedback in this thread!
  6. I decided to use the oft mentioned but rarely applied forum search feature to create a compilation of previous threads dedicated to various strategies and tips in the game. Hopefully this can be a resource for both new and veteran players. I will try to add to this as new threads are posted. And don't forget to check the wiki.

  7. Map Strategy

    Here is a map tip that might help people have a more stable start to their games. One thing I do is I always start a game with a cartographer run. I only collect enough materials and food to survive and spend most nights running with the torch, following every road. (It appears that when a road ends, it marks the end of the land. An end of the road seems to mark a dead end on the map). If I find points of interest, I will reveal more of that map (beefalo, wormholes, wooden thing, reed swamps, pig towns (especially if there are bush farms), pig king, graveyards, spider biomes, bee biomes, etc). After I am content with what I find, I go to my map, zoom out and screencap. I then promptly kill myself and retry (when you retry it uses the same map) for a serious run. Example of my cartographer run (+ photoshop): This way, I know where everything is, and I can beeline straight for the resources I want first to have a stable base as soon as possible. Fortunately on this map. The graveyard had a wormhole that went fairly close to the Pig King. I was able to dig a ton of graves and then run to the wormhole and cash out for about 2 stacks of gold in one go. also, if you are looking in a position that you might die, quickly open your map, zoom out, and screenshot. If you have photoshop, you can then layer your new map over your old one and erase the fog of war from one or the other to combine both maps.
  8. I don't think there are any structures that are made upon world creation(igloo is generated during winter i think and ice gem too).

    If there is anything to squeeze I say squeeze it out! I say lets find any hints what's in the next update, type Don't Starve:Long Live The Queen and begin analyzing. I suck at finding things like flashes though D:
  13. Id like to see everyones ideas. I have been playing this nonstop for the past 3 days but now Im seeing some problems. my advice- make the game get constantly harder, perhaps even enable an in-game leveling system to make your character stronger like an rpg. More like how the binding of isaac does it by floors. allowing for an eventual completion of the game, or if not completion, a minecraft type homebase thing. otherwise the game just gets boring, too easy, and repetitive past day 50.
