  1. Been a long time since I actually settled down to play this game for a respectable amount of time and I just hit summer on day 56 (I think.) Hounds are looming and I have yet to re enter my game because I had to stop playing about when I heard barking. Curious as to see what your guys' strategies are when fighting hound attacks that are too numerous to kite? Also, the possibility of overheating is there as well. I could wear my Eyebrella but then I would be missing out on some juicy damage absorption from my football helmet.
  2. Please share your thoughts on how do you see this game after you master it, how to build it to keep people interested and doing something new with the old skill. My personal opinion is to make the gameplay depending on the map and on the style: 1) Biome specific maps, all cold / all slime / no slime, etc. - logic here is: we have a random generated map, but once you start the game you have to be able to adapt to the map, instead of using the same strategy all the time. What if i did not have sleet wheat ? etc. or 2) Manually generate maps by players, share them, make a random map TOPs, ranks. Something like top 10 player created maps every month are added to a rotation of bucket of 20 or 30 random generated maps, to motivate players Intorduce WC3 style map bulilding and modding. 3) Ability to choose strategy you want to use - Eco friendly colony, poluted colony, high tech colony (For this one we need oil / radioactive biome) - in this case we would pick some parts of the tech tree and leave some out, or use everything, but have a choice.
  3. 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!
  4. 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.

  5. 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.
  6. 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).
  7. 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. While I was attempting to free some bag space I accidentally dropped the Metal Potato thingy and it went into the Ocean. I have no way of getting it out, and it doesn't seem to despawn. Does the Map spawn more than one of the ' Metal Potato thingy ' or am I screwed?
  8. I need Don't Starve

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!
  9. 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!

  10. 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:
  11. 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.
