The holiday hangout will go online tomorrow! If there's anything in the regular subforums that you're going to want to access over the holidays, copy it now while it's still accessible.
Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

[Don't Starve!] ...or get eaten by anything horrible. (But you totally will.)

    The game auto saves at sun rise and sun down.

    But all it's saving is research points. I've never been able to continue a game after I exit it manually.

    That's odd, when you hit continue it should go back to your last save, and you keep playing your same guy. it should only reset to a new unexplored island if you die or choose to start a new game.

    That's weird.

    Press Esc, "Main Menu" and "I said quit!".

    Click "Play" and "Continue".

    Research points and unlocked items carry over in new games but "Continue" lets you keep going were you are with all your stuff (as long as you don't get yourself killed).

    Thinking about filling out the research after my next death. Still have a few things to research. My island thus far is a camp in the middle of beefalo field. Graveyard north, graveyard sounth, a lot of minables on the way to each. Should take care of all my research.

    I still have yet to see a rabbit hole. Yet to see the new animal. Haven't left the first island yet.

    Current play through, Optimus Pine beat the tentacle for me, then forgot all about his hate for me. It was rather convenient.

    I have a question, how do I see the product key for my version of the game? The email in my inbox seems to only contain the gift product key I can give away, and when I try to fetch the steam key for my copy from the chrome menu it asks for a chrome key to convert. Does that mean that only one of the copies can actually be used for steam, while the other is chrome only?

    Why Steam store? Why do you reject my attempt to serve the Newell and redirect me to the store homepage when I try to purchase this?

    I watched two parts of a LP and found it so charming but also want to figure things out for myself. But now it won't let me.

    Have I angered you Newell?

    Edit: Ah it heard my plea, now I shall attempt to not starve.

    I have no idea what you're asking.

    You purchase the game. You get a copy automatically, then it gives you a second copy to gift. Why do you need the key for your own copy? And if you do, you just go to your library, right click on the game, and view CD key, or whatever it says.

    Hmmm, I never get the Continue option. I think I'll re-install.

    Ooh. As far as I know, you should actually get 2 Chrome Keys and 2 Steam Keys out of the deal if it bought it via chrome. Might want to check their forum, as they probably have the answer there. I think most of us bought it through steam.

    They did have some blurb up a few days ago about getting keys for Steam if you bought through Chrome so yeah, official website should have some answers.

    I think as long as you are not harvesting the smallest trees, and are replanting every pinecone you get, He should never appear.

    But if you did a stupid thing, like..burn down 1/3rd of your worlds trees, Then his spawning seems to come more regularly.

    It is also not a set spot, as I've had him spawn in the middle of my tree farm from a tree that I planted.

    That's how it happened to me, except the reason I was cutting my tree farm was my fire was dangerously low and I was out of fuel. He spawned when I chopped the first tree and proceeded to chase me away before I could pick up the wood. That night then consisted of running in increasingly smaller circles as my fire slowly died until, as it was at its last ember, I dove for the wood in a last ditch effort. It failed. He caught me. I did not see dawn.

    That is some horrifying shit to know he can spawn in your own tree farm.

    Moving a spider nest near my home base to farm them for webs was a good idea at the start.

    But it didn't end well.

    Plant a few spider nests around beehives. Check in every now and then to watch them fight (and collect loot).

    Tentacles attack spiders dont they? Just plant nests in the swamps, swing through every other day to collect meats and silks.

    I found mine by going to Options>Product Keys.

    Take the Chrome Key in put it into the converter.

    Tentacles attack everything, Beefalo and Optimus Pine confirmed with my own eyes, or remnants of.

    Tree > Tentacles though. I think the beefalo and tentacle destroyed each other because I had parts from both when I walked up.

    I thought camp fires would keep away spiders at night.

    Turns out the 12+ spiders did not really care whether I had a camp fire or not.

    Taking down a tree with a golden axe takes up 1 durability. Taking down a tree with a normal one takes up like 20.

    I feel like I successfully made myself sick of this game in a single evening. Maybe I will want to play it again a few updates down the line, but for now I feel like I have experienced most of what the game has to offer. The effort of just keeping yourself stocked with wood and food to stay alive got pretty tedious by day 10.

    Very much so.


    Also, I have to ask. What exactly is wendy's benefit? I mean, with willow, yeah. You have immunity to fire, and the ability to firestart in the dark. However, with Wendy, Abigail doesn't seem to HELP at all. At best does nothing, at worst, can actually injure me. So is there some benefit I'm missing?

    I cannot say how many times I would starve in this games if your character didn't warn you at 25 or so hunger.

    On the other hand, your character don't say shit about low HP, leading to many hilarious disembowelments.

    Okay, Willow is quite useful for running the long bridges as you can keep running at night without stopping to make a torch. Just as long as you have food, you're golden.

  • heenatoheenato Registered User regular
    .....Well THAT was incredibly unfortunate for me I was collecting wood, and Accidentally hit a beefalo while doing so. So they started chasing me...and I managed to kill them, but suddenly it's pitch black and I get bitten to death by something as I'm fumbling around desperately trying to start my fire. I think I'll stick with Willow from now on. or even Wilson. I REALLY don't see any benefit to using Wendy.

    She acts like a pigman--she defends you. But she's so focused on murder that she'll attack you too if you get too close.
