      [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. So I haven't been able to rouse myself into starting a Ranching MK1 world. In Oil, Automation,Tubular and Occupational I got bases up and running past all of the research and into the 200+ cycle range. I just can't seem to get myself to do it all again, again. Even with all of the changes the initial get a base going phase hasn't changed. That first 100 cycles is basically identical (just now with a totally different priority system that I don't really get). A big part of it is I spend a lot of time rolling dupes. I like my first three dupes to form the backbone of my base, so I usually roll for learning and a miner/researcher/supply. This can take 15+ minutes if I get anal retentive about what I'm looking for. Then I get to generate a world which may or may not be sufficient, so I need to debug and then clear the map so I can see what geysers/volcanoes/fumaroles have spawned. If the worldgen is poor, I spent all the time rolling dupes for nothing, but if the world is good and you picked junk dupes you're just as stuck with wasted time. I suggested a while back that they let us have a "dupe builder" for our first three dupes. Let us allocate points and pick negative traits for bonus points to distribute, like at the beginning of just about any RPG prior to 2000. This would eliminate a LOT of time spent on the RNG. I would also suggest that worldgen happens before rolling your dupes (maybe have the initial dupe rolling happen in-game at the printing pod?) so you can check out the map first without wasting any additional time. I have similar problems with Factorio, but in that I just have to generate a bunch of new worlds until I see one that looks like a solid start. It's much harder to judge a solid start in ONI. How is everyone else dealing with the rapid dev cycle and major changes to things like worldgen? I wish we could just bring in an experienced dupe crew to a new world, that way the several successful bases I've had don't feel completely wasted come the next patch.
  2. 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!
  3. 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.

  4. 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.
  5. 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).
  6. Bug Submission Please choose a category [Gameplay] Platform [*]Steam Version Number - Issue title Metal Potato Thingy is in the Ocean... Help! Steps to reproduce Use Hammer on Chest items fly out items fall into ocean. Describe your issue Hi, I had collected all the parts to make the Portal to another world.

Does the Map spawn more than one of the ' Metal Potato thingy ' or am I screwed?
  7. I need Don't Starve

    Hey, i was wondering if i could get a beta code for don't starve, i'm really wanting to do a mini advertisement on my youtube channel and a let's play and review. If you would like to get in touch, my Steam username is: Savezombie1, and if that doesn't work, try savezombie11. It would be great if you gave me one!
  8. Hey guys! I just posted a thread in the Video Section, but read in another thread there to feel free to post it here as well! I have started a Don't Starve Guide series on Youtube, and I also stream the game on Twitch Let me know what you think of the guides! I would love feedback!

  9. Teaser

    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:
  10. 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.
