    i am having trouble because i wanted to remove all of my mods and only get back the important ones, but when i got back on to DST to check my mods, (should have zero becuase i unsubscribed from all of them), only to see that none of them have left, they all are still there, but not like theyre suppost to, all of them are called workshop-[long code], an example is34559788, they vary. they all show up as server mods even the client mods. they all say they need to update even thoughwhen i update them, nothing happens. I have cleaned and re-subscried to all of my mods many times, still no changes. if i am to eneble any of these mods, the world is still a vinnila world with no mods, even though theyre enabled. i asked my friend to try to jon my…

    I don't know if this is a bug but it might When I'm Wes though on rare occasions when I hit a bird it enters its stun animation and falls on the ground where I can pick the bird up with out a bird trap. However this rarely happens so I don't have a picture to show. It's happened in DST and DS on any world if it happens once though it happens for the entire time of play until I log out was considering added it to trivia for Wendy or Wess but it's so rare an inconsistant that I question if it's just a wierd bug

    Has anyone encontered this before.

    Character Idea -- Wren

    March 25, 2017 by KieRor098

    Notice: This is my first character idea. If you suggest ideas, I will consider adding it. This is also under construction.

    Name: Wren

    Nickname: The Birdwatcher

    Quote: "Come, little bird! All I want is your friendship!"

    Sanity: 130

    Health: 125

    Hunger: 135

    Starting Items: Binoculars -- Allows you to see farther, Bird Flute -- Calls birds.

    Appearance: A young, tanned man around the age of 19 with short, messy, dark hair. He wears a pale green shirt with a tan vest and jeans. He wears black shoes.

    • Loves all birds. -- He gets a -5 sanity decrease when hurting any birds and eating bird meat. Can harmlessly take feathers from birds. (The Moose/Goose does not apply to this perk.)
    • Starts with a nice flute. -- Can use his flute to bring birds to him.
    • Owns a pa…

    Hello! I'm Jand, and I play DST just like you! *yaaay!*

    So, Here's some stuff about me:

    Steam Name: Master Jand

    Longest lived in Don't Starve Original: I'm still surviving in a world, but I haven't touched it for long. It's around 1,000 days. It got super boring once I got to day like 100, so I don't play it that much anymore.

    Longest lived in DST: Ongoing series I play with friends on a Plus world. It's ~1,100 days there.

    Characters I usually go as:




    Wes (when I'm up for a challenge)

    How long do I play for?

    I can play for up to 2 hours each day, from 7:30 - 9:30 PM (PST)

    I am currently doing the Powcake challenge, I was inspired my Mr. Kise. I'm on day ~132.

    One time, I had a lights out world. It was hard for me to play lik…

    Okay. So, I decided to do this challenge soley because other people started doing it. (Mr. KisE and Desona)

    I read the wiki and it says it requires 18750 in-game days to rot, or just about 104 real days of gameplay to rot it.

    So this is going to be a side-project I will be doing in my free time, and it will probably take 2 years. :P

    I am doing this in a SW/RoG Merge slot, and I will be getting by powdercake with the help of a Crock Pot, not the console. (It doesn't appear to work on my computer for some reason).

    I will publish the first world's progress when I am done.

    Today I decided to play DS for a bit longer than usual. I spawned in Autumn as Wilson and began doing the normal gathering of supplies and such. I had found an excelent location …

    Who is the best character for adventure mode? I've been trying to beat adventure mode lately and i just keep having alot of trouble with it. The first time i saw Maxwell's Door i was Willow and thought that she would be good because many of the worlds involve characters freezing to death, so if i need to i can burn down a forest. But Willow is simply too weak for the structures of The Game is Afoot. Next i tried WX-78, because of the abundance of clockwork peices. I forgot about Wet Perception. I next thought Webber, he is passive with spiders so The Game is Afoot is not a problem, and he has pretty decent health, and sanity should be okay because spider wars and silk then tophat. Then i remembered Woodie, Lucy can help early on to save re…

    • i got angry and restarted

    • i might play shipwrecked to do the powdercake challenge linked to RoG so when its summer i go to Rog and when its winter i go to Shipwrecked. That seems like the fastest way now that i think about it... but its too late for that now! after all the game just started and i need to pick a character, Restarting the challenge already cant be a bad sign... Can it?

    I found a hidden structure in Don't starve: Together called "dummytarget" or "MISSING NAME", i was wondering if i should make a page. my guess its that the Dummy target its a test item made by the devs

    Already made the page

    • It has the Meat Effigy's texture
    • It has 1000 Health
    • It regenerates quickly
    • Every time you hit it a number appears on top of it, maybe the damage that you deal
    • When any character examines it this quote appears: "It's... a thing."
    • You can summon it with the following command
    • for x = 1, 1 do DebugSpawn("dummytarget") end

    Sandbox Problems

    This Guy...

    October 31, 2016 by Michaelpie5

    This guy on Steam, called 半夏微暖半夏凉, just recently posted a Don't Starvemod. It is called MushroomFamily, and it literally is just the Funcaps and the Mushroom Planter from A New Reign, but in a mod, and with different names. It gets even weirder, I scroll down, and all the mod info is just the exact items from the game, except some information is mis-matched (Like the "Mushroom Hats" being under the Survival Tab). I scrolled down to the comments, looking to see if anyone pointed out that this was ripped ANR content. Since most of the comments were in Chinese, but from what I saw in English and what I could decipher, NO ONE had said anything about it. Isn't this weird?

    First, you need to download and install Spriter, a free 2D animation program from BrashMonkey. It can be used to access the sprite animations and export them for example. You can find and download the newest versions here.

    Second, you need to download Simplex' ktools to be able to convert the game files into Spriter project files. These are found here, but you need to have an user account at the Klei Forums to be allowed to download them. Their readme with more detailed information can be found here.

    ktools contains two programs: ktech and krane. ktech can be used to convert bidirectionally between TEX files (without animations) and PNG, but this can also be more easily done using Matt's TEX Tools. So krane is actually what we are looking for. It …

    Adventure Mode is a goal-driven option which can be activated from within Sandbox Mode by opening Maxwell's Door. When playing as Wigfrid, recommendations for dealing with Adventure Mode are somewhat specialized and will differ from the standard Adventure guide.

    This guide assumes a player with a small amount of experience (some experience is necessary for unlocking Wigfrid, after all) but not a high level of skill in the game yet. Wigfrid's journey through Maxwell's Door can be perfect for a player who struggles with Adventure Mode using other characters or who would like a more challenging surface world experience with Wigfrid before venturing into the caves.

    Sanity management will be a problem on some chapters, which can come as an unplea…

I played as woodie because I could go werebeaver if i needed tp heal, fight, or replenish hunger. I got a koalefant and found lots of chess set pieces, including the wooden thing, I could have gotten lots of gears if it werent for a little mole... long story short, I finished these days with 40 health. :(

Don't take any with yourself, its just a waste of gems believe me. However you can take a since ruins are full of Nightmare Fuel. Get prepared and make sure you make some Taffys to increase your sanity or Cooked green caps, unless you are playing as Maxwell, cheater.

    Wiki Official Server?

    June 16, 2016 by MrMulk

    So I remember about a month ago MentalistPro was suggesting we possible create a wiki-official server. I don't really know how this conversation was resolved (I have been pretty busy), but I would still like to add my input.

    First, I'm going to be honest. I would definitely not be able to contribute until August 11th for certain. And even past that date, my help will be dicey at best, due to College, ROTC, and, well, life.

    Second, I would recommend we use an external host. While it may be possible to set up a dedicated server on a personal computer, the quality of the server will be completely dependent on the user's connection, and PC quality. It is much safer then to just purchase a server for a monthly fee. Based on Don't Starve Together'…

Please understand that sections on this subject may be based on speculation, however I will try and clearly mark these specific sections. Otherwise, all information has been collected from past Market Data which is being used to predict the future.

    DISCLAIMER: I will be using the term "skins" a whole bunch. Understand this refers to the Elegant/Distinguished skins in the new skin updates, and does not necessarily reference sets without these.

    Well, after some time of hunting you found yourself a Koalefant! Today we take a look how to turn this cute thing into tasty meat and a Koalefant Trunk .

    You want to not let it go agro on you, or want it dead wihout doing it yourself? Sure!

    (COMMUNITY TESTED) The "Coward's way" was tested by "ItsAnatime" Thank you for your help!

    Well, there is barely any way how to make the Koalefant agro to you unless you get your weapon and smack it,Koalfeants also cannot go into "In Heat" state and if you get too close, the Koalefant will just take a bunch of steps back and stop.

    Koalfeant trunks are usefull for making a Breezy Vest or if it's an Winter Koalfeant a Puffy Vest.

    So i decided to make a guide on how to get rid of them!

    About the "might randomly atack" thing i said in the outro, NEVER stand near a neutral windbore for too long, unless you are ready for anything. If you do, they decide that you are taking up their space and bully you like the bullies they are.

    No, the title is not a taunt, it explains how to get away wihout causing any more trouble.

    Step 1 : Find your raft/boat

    Step 2 : Jump on the raft/boat

    The pine treeguard shows up if you simply, go on a "tree rampage" and not plant ANY new trees what so ever

    This blog will show you how to get rid of the treeguard

    So, there is a treeguard on you and you dont really know how to fight, luckily there is a way to turn it into a normal tree.

    Step 1 : Get some pine cones (Birch nuts if you are fighting the Poison birch nut )

    Step 2 : Plant the appropiate tree seeds in front of the treeguard

    Step 2.5 : Keep planting until it turns into a normal tree

    Step 3 : Profit!

    What do i mean by that?, i mean the way of actually KILLING this thing.

    Step 1 : Get at least a spear, and some decent armor (In case you take damage)

    Step 2 : Dodge its attack

    Step 3 : Hit it 2 or 3 times with your spear

    Step 4 : Repeat steps 2…

    I guess many people know the DLC came out of early acess, but there's still a big feeling of emptiness while playing it, like:

    - It's missing the adventure mode, RoG didn't add anything new to it, but the changes are easily noticeable, shipwrecked doenst change anything, and I guess there isn't even a Maxwells door or counterpart in this one

    - The So, there's also BURNT ash trees, which would always mean there's an 'living' counterpart, but no, kinda missing. Also, besides of Dragoons and the volcano altar, there's nothing that makes the volcano better or even near as good as it's vanilla counterpart, The caves, which of course it's disappointing.
