      [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. I know what you're probably thinking. "Oh boy another buff Willow/Woodie thread where yet another bozo gives his idea of what needs to be done to fix them. Haven't seen one of those this week. Guess we're due" But in actual fact that's not what this is about. It occurred to me that despite the near-constant posting of character rebalance threads in the past years or so almost nothing has changed. To begin, there is simply no denying the outcry the community has had asking for a rebalance that makes Willow and Woodie viable again yet we have received virtually nil in response, despite being the foundation of the game's active community. And that's what this is actually about, it's about why almost nothing changed. It's pretty obvious a significant amount of the community desires a buff for these characters, considering the literal hundreds of discussions, posts, arguments, name calling, and threads on the various platforms (steam, discord, youtube, and the forums), yet it seems as though all pleas have been, for the most part, utterly ignored and forgotten, resulting in the cycle never ending. Not only this, but the horrific disparage in balance between the characters had led to severe animosity and elitism within the community itself, spearheaded by a youtuber who shall remain unnamed all in defense of "the meta." The simple fact is that we have reached a point in the community where if you want to be involved, you have to be careful playing certain characters as your main otherwise you will face severe prejudice, potentially leading to more difficulty developing in the community. There is no way this helps encourage new players. Maybe I'm just crazy right? Perhaps there has been changes made and I haven't noticed them. Well I decided to check and all I could find in terms of buffs was this: At some point Willow's insanity freeze was nerfed so that it could only freeze her in winter without something else (woah what a MASSIVE buff) Apparently they gave Willow a whole extra second of fire immunity at some point to before deciding that was too op and removing it As far as I know the only buff woodie has received in DST is the ability to plant pinecones and birch nuts for sanity (actually halfway decent but completely out scaled by his nerfs) These "buffs" are the equivalent of putting a band aid on a bullet wound. So why has it only been this despite the near constant requests for change? Certainly Klei has seen at least some of the community who has been asking, even if they've actively attempted to ignore or quell posts regarding this subject. Ok, so a significant amount of the community wants a buff and that nothing has been really done in earnest to sate this desire, perhaps there's some excellent reasoning as to why we don't actually need the buff. Certainly there's something we're collectively missing here, that actually makes the character imbalance justifiable? In that case let's examine the top arguments in defense of leaving things the way they are now. Griefing (this argument relates to Willow specifically). I can hear it now. But if we buff Willow griefers are gonna have a field day! We can't let that happen! In actual fact this argument holds no weight simply because while Willow is slightly better for griefing, any character can craft a torch and burn down everything. I mean the nerf placed on Willow has worked so well after all anyways, am I right? Wait no actually it hasn't quelled griefing at all, and it still runs rampant as exemplified by the recent dedicated klei server takeovers. As it turns out, not all griefing even bothers with fire, there's more options than just that. The short of it is that griefing didn't justify the initial nerfing, and still doesn't justify. Protecting "The Meta" It is an unfortunate truth that the community struggles with severe animosity and hate developed from the imbalance in the characters. Despite this, there are those who would argue Klei need not touch character balance because it might upset the precious meta that they've worked hard to dominate the game's community with. I'd suggest that this argument is flawed in the sense that it is foremost inherently unethical, and secondly this thread is more about buffing characters that are at a current severe disadvantage, not nerfing those already on top of the pyramid. Sure it might weaken the most powerful characters by comparison, but it would be nice to not be called a r******* ape for playing my main for a change. It's not necessary... This is a pretty uncommon argument, not gonna lie, even generally the most elitist player admits that a buff would be in order, and then goes on generally laughing as they know nothing will even actually be done. However, I have heard this said before, and I'm going to address it. Generally out of the people who make this argument are not super involved or simply don't understand the situation (they often play the OP characters and can't really see the issue from their ivory tower). The truth is something needs to be done, the current disparage is massive, and while I certainly expect nothing to actually come of this thread (it'll likely be thrown on the pile and ignored), it's important as a community we continually call this out. Another variant of this is "It's just a game, calm down." There is an important distinction to be made here, I'm well aware that this is a game and that it has no tangible impact on real life if Willow and Woodie, two fictional characters, are never buffed. However I love this game and want the absolute best for it, so if I see a problem, I'm going to call it out and say something because I desire a well balanced game. Not to mention it does get kinda discouraging when you're put down for your main repeatedly because they're "useless" (as stated by others). Sure the Community might be requesting it but is it really a good idea? My response to this is as follows: Yes, and if you don't agree just compare the characters currently. Just use Mods, K? How would you feel if your main required mods, which are often laughed out in the community as de-legitimizing, just to be played on par with the other characters? What does this say about the balancing if this is one of the current major arguments? What if I told you that mods are often poorly made, buggy, or don't truly encapsulate a healthy buff? Conclusions Honestly, I'm aware jack diddly is gonna come of this thread but the community needs to continually keep requesting it. This was not a "bash klei thread" and if you think that then I must have used poor word choice. It's more just calling out an issue I've seen in the game that still hasn't been fixed, and desperately needs change. The flaw's effects have unfortunately taken root but I legitimately believe it is not too late to repair and rebalance Willow and Woodie. As for what that looks like, it's on Klei to really decide what should be done, however I've outlined my own suggestions in another thread. Link: If you see any inaccuracies in this post (it's a long one so there's likely to be something) just let me know and I can adjust. Finally, what are your thoughts?
  2. Ria's Papyrus Pad

    Ok so I realized that a couple people actually like my DS comic: Wilson meets Red. So I decided to post it here with a couple other crossover art pieces. Comic page 1: Page 2 part 1: Page 2 part 2: Comic page 3: I personally love some of Red's expressions in the first two pages XD Here are a few others I did before/during the comic. Science Machine: Carrots: Wilson's Squirrel Problem: And lastly, comic page 4: Edit: Should I post all my DS related work here or just keep updating my off-topic art thread with them?
  3. Hi! :3 I am new to the forums,so if I do anything wrong please tell me. Anyways,I made this topic to post my not so great fan art ;u; Here's the first one: Very bad quality,I know,I know... I wanted to take a better picture,but I couldn't find the paper ;-;
  4. I haven't posted in the forums for a looong time and I thought it'd be cool to share some of my works !! My tumblr is http://tantum-tenebris.tumblr.com/ and I'll sometimes post my work on there, too! I'm a big fan of Willow so most of my artwork's mostly about her. I also run a sideblog for Ember, the wyvernling from my ds rp group the Famine Friends: https://wyvernling.tumblr.com/. My steam's Shadowtime! this was a quick test w/ an old photograph theme !! and some doodles of Ember !! @Pink_Infatuation is gma :') and my most recent, wilson's forge skin! spams over; stay tuned !!

  9. "Ardiente"

    I swear it's all @minespatch's, @DragonMage156's and @PandoMish's fault, I hold no liability to this writ! Also, starring @Chris1488 and @Mr.P. Apparently. Plus quite a host of the Klei overlords. Again, their fault for immortalising themselves as pigmen.
  10. Wow, it's been a while. Dang... I'm starting a new tread because my old tread was archived. XD So I'm going post some art I did recently, and then I'm add some stuff I've done in the past later.
  11. Hello. :3 I'm late to the party, but it's better to be late then never, right? I love Don't Starve! I started playing it a few months ago and I wish I got into it sooner. I play it whenever I have free time, and I can't wait for DST to come out. Because of my crazy work schedule, I tend to draw quick comic doodles then full blown colored pieces, but I have a lot of fun drawing fanart for this game! It's a nice break from my normal work. I have some things to share, but lets just start with this little scirbble I did about a month ago.
  12. You were completely numb from whatever drug that was in your system. Grogginess shrouded your ability to move for the last ten minutes now, ever since you awoke to a bang, a puff of smoke, and a book. You couldn't even feel the blades of grass ticking your cheeks, or the odd breeze ruffling your hair. The silence had stretched on for an infinite moment, punctuated only with the sound of birdsong, as you examined the only notable landmark since your sudden arrival in...wherever you were. You do not remember getting here, so logically you assumed that someone had slipped something in your food or drink and tossed you, rather unceremoniously, into this dilapidated grassy plain and left an instruction book with your initial sliced into the leather bound cover. It was incredibly battered, and you were certain there was a bloodstain on the top right corner. After a while, though, you eventually regained enough movement to drag the book towards you with a new desperation, flicking open to the very first page, where a thin sheet of what appeared to be some sort of odd, pale leather was picked up by the breeze and landed before you. It was baked rock solid and brittle under the sun, and there was some sort of introductory note written using ink and a quill over the bumpy surface. ~~~ If you have found this book, then words do not describe how sorry I am for your current situation. Inside these pages is a record, a compilation of my Field Notes, on how to survive in this new plane of Hell itself. I have trudged through the coldest winters, sought shelter from unrelenting storms, crouched pathetically in the everlasting darkness to bring to you, heir to my burden, a recount of the day my new life started to the point where it ended. In between these two covers is the story of a life, all of the mistakes, the successes, and the plans. Fears, thoughts, feelings, and fleeting memories compressed into a single tome to which I pass on to the next player in this demented game. If you have found this book, then I am either dead, or worse. All will be made clear should you manage to survive long enough to reach the end, as I have. This may not be the best of introductions but I have very little time to speak and think for myself, as the pointless seconds which I still have are going solely into writing down this very note, on this very piece of leather, to give you a proper greeting - something that I never received myself - and some lessons to live on. If you have found this book, then my name is Wilson Percival Higgsbury, and I do not know where I have ended up. ~~~ Haha okay wow. Hello there, DS arists and writers and music-makers alike! My name is FieldNotes and this thread is devoted to partially DS-related drawings, partially talking to the community instead of lurking, but mainly to putting out a lovely gem that I have been thinking on for a good, hm...6 months now? The premise for Wilson's Journal is fairly simple - I'm going to put the story behind Don't Starve into the perspective of our plucky Gentleman Scientist, and adhere to the canon story as much as possible, but you'll notice how it starts to deviate and I'm going to tie together a bunch of loose ends along the way into one gloriously tangled mess of metaphorical strings. I'm also going to have fun writing, and try to update as much as possible, but I hope people understand that I do get quite busy sometimes. This prevented me from starting this 6 months before, but I noticed that some of the brilliant artists here are also hindered by their own time schedules so I deemed it appropriate to, at the very least, make a start on this little project of mine. Day 1 will be posted shortly, I presume.
  13. Art commissioned from my friend Pearl (Link may be a little nsfw but not very.)
  14. Somewhere, in a world much like the one in Don't Starve lies characters who resemble the ones from the game we know and love. But past that appearance, almost nothing is the same. There personalities are opposite of the ones we know! (To an extent) Ask these characters a question! The ones you can talk to are: Wilson Willow Wolfgang Wendy WX78 Wickerbottom Woodie Wes Maxwell Sorry! No ROG characters. There will be references to ROG though. In fact, one character heavily relies on ROG logic. Please no direct shipping questions. (No 'Wilson! Go out with Willow' or 'Wolfgang! How is your love life with Wickerbottom', ect.) Relationships are okay though. (Ex. 'Wendy, how is your relationship with Maxwell?)
  15. Hello My name is Maximum and I drew some don't starve things, I believe this is the appropriate place to post them. (some of them are a tad weird looking due to them being drawn on a 3DS) Also just a warning, some of them have a bit of blood but nothing too serious [if you are wondering about his hands I just have a headcannon that Wilson wears big black rubber gloves] Wilson your hair is just too fun not to draw. Anyway those are some of my arts, I have some more but I doubt anyone would like to see them. ALSO I should just say I'm completely fine if anyone uses my art for avatars, reaction images, whatever, as long as you ask me permission first and credit me.
  16. hey there im doing this to try and improve my spelling and grammar criticize is ok just not very harsh Chapter 1 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I wake up to blue sky's where am I ? this is not my room, am I dead? she tried to sit up and pain pierced her head. Then a man appeared before her in a puff of gray smoke "say pall you don't look too good " he said with a smirk " better find some food before night comes " . she stood up and had her mouth open to bombard the man with question's but before she could he disappeared just how he had came. She stood up and walked around, am I alone here? the question lingered in her head . at least I have Abigail with me . she picked some berry's and collected some flint , then the sun started to set she sat down trying to make a fire but it was hope less she needed logs which she was not strong enough to get . she braced herself to go into the darkness,at least there's not any monsters .then a screech sounded in the distance , what the but monsters don't exist! she ran as fast as she could then there was a fire if she could just make it ! the monster latched onto her arm , it was limy and cold she did not like the feeling of it on her arm so she tugged it off and screamed " help !!!!!! " " ill go check it out " one voice said , the other said" ok hares a torch ". as the light got closer she saw a man with a torch in hand . the monster hissed and let go of her she collapsed and the man asked " Are you ok?"

  20. Willow Cosplay

    Willow cosplay made by myself and IdentityFox Cosplayer: IdentityFox Photos: Me
  21. Hey guys, so i've been wanting to write another story for a while, but my unoriginal mind could never think of anything good to write of, and i really love playing don't starve, so i decided to write my own fanfiction about it, the plan for how it will be presented is, will be like this Chapter # - Name spoilers and chapters so it doesn't clutter up the OP with a huge wall of text and so you wont have to sit there and scroll through hundreds of words to find the next chapter, well here goes first chapter Chapter 1 - Forbidden Knowledge So, thoughts on the first chapter? should i continue this?
  22. Hey everyone, this is a thread for the small fanfics I write for Don't Starve. This game is my dream and it inspired me more than anything else ever did before. A note: Not everything in this fanfic is game accurate, but know that I made those choices to make for a better story. Here we go: MacTusk's Trophey MacTusk groaned as he put the last few pieces of the igloo in place. His son had proved to be largely useless, putting down a whole two ice-blocks before running after a jackrabbit with the hounds. Maybe it was time for him to pick up the darts, at least he'd come back from his little play trips with something to show for it. MacTusk started to unpack his bag, and immediately strapped his darts to his belt. He'd been out hunting here before, and it was never safe, no matter how tranquil it all seemed. Good thing that wee MacTusk took the hounds, you never know. A chirping roar alerts MacTusk of his sons arrival, and the two blue hounds yip and bark in excitement. Maybe MacTusk had wanted to be a little cross with his son for not helping him set up the igloo, but when the young walrus shows him his catch (a seriously chewed up jackrabbit) he can't stay mad. Tomorrow they would go hunting for real, and junior would get his first lessons in hunting on the evil grounds. The next day they were up early, and MacTusk had made additional darts, just in case they come across something more needy of death than your average jackrabbits ice birds. He sure hoped so, he came here more for enjoyment than food-collecting. They set out, blue hounds excitedly sniffing about, and wee Mactusk pointing out non-existant marks of prey, even going so far as to spot Koelephant footsteps in a pinecone. He still needed more practice than just this one hunting trip, but his excitement more than made up for it. MacTusk shot a dart at a rabbit, and it keeled clean over. The missus at home had hinted on a coat of soft jackrabbit fur, and it wouldn't be too much work to peel the skin off. He'd set junior on that task right after they'd caught enough rabbits. He shoots darts until he only has a few more hanging from his belt, and then the hunters return to their igloo, arms full of rabbits and hounds whining for scraps at their feet. It is right when Junior is bringing the meat inside that MacTusk sees a new threat, far too close to their camp. He doesn't recognize it, and it dives behind a tree when he tries to get a better look. By the time he reaches the tree, the thing is gone, leaving only unrecognizable prints in the snow. He sends the hounds after it immediately, but they return a while later with clean snouts. MacTusk can't help but love the chill that runs through him. Who knew what they were up against! Even if it turned out to be a defenseless little thing, it would be one of a kind, and MacTusk would like that on his wall, as would his wife! Maybe even more than that coat she had been hinting at! He restocks his darts as quickly as he can, and urges junior to follow him and he strange prints in the snow. It would be a glorious first trophey for his son, a never before seen animal from the cursed island! The tracks are strange, and almost frighteningly straight. This thing knows where it is going, and doesn't waste time on twists and turns. Wee Mactusk helps him spot the next tracks, and then they arrive at a crude camp. Dried hunks of animal hang on dirty ropes, and several wooden boxes almost burst out of their seams, so filled are they with random junk and treasure. The tracks are all over the place, but still, the animal is nowhere to be seen. It's a smart creature, frighteningly so, and it would make for a better trophey than anything else! Anyone could off a Beefalo, a few pigs or a Tallbird. This predator already had, judging from the animals hunks drying on the racks. Wee Mactusk looked worried, and he clenched his own darts tightly in his flippers. This would be no ordinary hunt. It would be an ambush of a deadly creature. The waiting was long, and the tension grew between son and father, but finally, a rustling from the forest signalized the return of the animal. Both walruses held their breath and had their darts at the ready as their target appeared. The creature was indeed unlike they had ever seen. Three black curled horns adorned the head, making a ghostly white face stand out from beneath. It was dressed in the corpses of its prey, Koelephant snout stuffed with beefalo fur and spiderwebbings, crude earmuffs made from jackalope fur, and a backpack made from pig leather. It saw them, and made a startled jump backwards. For just a moment, MacTusk wanted to see the beast in its full glory, before ending its life and presenting its evil horned head to his family. He roared, and the hounds shot from their positions towards the menace. MacTusk himself immediately blew a dart at it as well. It screamed loudly as it hit, and took off into the forest, faster than he had expected. The hounds ran after it with loud howls. He prepared a second dart, and signalled for his son to follow in the persuit. The hounds whined in the distance, and he could hear one of them scream in its death throes. Both father and son arrived just in time to see the horned creature drive a pointed spear right through their last hound. Then it turned his sights onto them, and shudders of delight went through MacTusk's hide. Eye to eye with the predator! Trying to outsmart the other, a true fight of life and death! Hah. He would show this creature, who is the smartest! He blew another dart, and the creature cried out in rage and pain, raising its weapon threateningly. It howled a choked up battlecry, and charged forward. MacTusk knew better than to stand still, and he fled from the wild beast, heart pounding. He was outrunning it, but only barely! He turned his head just in time to see the predator catching up to his son. He roared out a warning, but it was too late. The pointed tip of the weapon dug into wee MacTusk's side, and he squealed in pain. Suddenly the thrill of the hunt had turned into the ice-cold fear that he might lose his son. The beast crooned in victory, and raised it's spear for the final blow. Any caution was blown in the wind by old MacTusk. Forgetting all the safety rules when dealing with wild animals, he charged at the monster attempting to kill his son, and managed to bash the harmful creature out of the way, catching the spear in his left flipper as he did so. Wee MacTusk was a ghostly pale, but he stumbled to his feet as his father took a blowdart from his belt. The expression of fear on the predator's strange snout would have been comical if not a bit piteous before to MacTusk, but now he only felt gratification. He blew his dart at the creature, and it hit it square in the chest. With an almost walrus-like moan, the predator sank to its knees, the weapon dropped from its talons and its throphey's slowly going red from blood. They were victorious. His son stood shaking behind him, and stared at the animal struggling for its life in the snow. Such a mighty predator, now weakly pawing at the snow in its death throes. It's struggling soon slowed, and it just laid breathing and bleeding on the ground. It's intelligent eyes were hazy with pain and panic, and even as it started losing consciousness, they could tell it was still trying to think a way out of its situation. MacTusk treated his sons wounds, as they waited for the beast to die, and in the end, wee MacTusk could even grin, boasting that a scar from such a dangerous creature would make him more attractive. MacTusk could only agree, and thank whatever gods there were for the life of his son. Together they watched the creature faint and die, before they bound it and dragged it through the snow to their igloo. The MacTusks left early that winter, and from that winter forth, in their home, resides the one and only taxidermied, black-horned beast.
