Hey Everybody,

Today we have a pretty great QOL update, Hallowed Nights returns, and some new spooooky skins.

As we've mentioned before, we had different plans for this month, but we needed to move things around a bit and so we rescheduled that for next month and added a bonus QOL update in its place!

Quality of Life Update!

  • Server admins and local hosts can now pause the game.
  • Chat now has a history of the last 100 messages and persists between the character select screen, forest, and caves.

You can find the full patch notes here:

Server Pausing:

  • Server admins and local hosts can now pause the game.
    • This can be done via a keybind that defaults to ‘P’ or when more than one player is on the server, by the “Not a pause” Pause Screen.
  • When playing by yourself, on a server you locally host or are an admin for, the game can now automatically pause (“Auto-Pause”) when focus is taken away from the world.
    • For example: the “Not a pause” Pause Screen, cookbook, wardrobe, map, etc.
    • While other players are in the world, auto-pausing will be disabled.
  • When the game is paused, you can:
    • Manage your inventory
    • View crafting recipes
    • Look at the map
    • Talk to other players via ingame chat
    • Disconnect
  • Servers that are paused will show up as such in the server browser, and can be filtered based on that setting.
  • Worlds hosted without caves will now be paused while all players are in the lobby.

Notes for Modders:

  • You can hide the darkened pause underlay via the console command:
    • Profile:SetHidePauseUnderlay(true)
  • You can enable and disable the Console Command Screen auto-pausing separately in the Advanced menu in settings.
  • When the game is paused, you can run the command TheNet:AdvanceFrame() to make the game advance forward one Update(dt) call.
  • The game now has a new update loop: StaticUpdate(dt) StaticUpdate will run regardless of the game being paused.
    • Components now also have support for a OnStaticUpdate call, but this will only be executed when the game is paused, and will be skipped when the game is unpaused.
  • There is a new Scheduler called staticScheduler, this Scheduler is identical to the normal scheduler, except that it runs on the StaticUpdate loop, and not the Update loop, meaning it will update while the game is paused.
  • EntityScript now has a DoStaticPeriodicTask and DoStaticTaskInTime functions, these are identical to their non-static counterparts, except that because they run on StaticUpdate, they will run even when paused.
  • All widgets and screens will now use DoStaticPeriodicTask and DoStaticTaskInTime by default.
  • Widgets and screens also have a DoSimPeriodicTask and DoSimTaskInTime, which will pause and stop updating when the game is paused.
  • Widgets and screens have a new function called UpdateWhilePaused, which is by default called with true, if called with false, DoPeriodicTask and DoTaskInTime will now point to their Sim variants instead of the Static variants.
  • All widget OnUpdate(dt) calls will need to check TheNet:IsServerPaused() if their behavior should stop updating when the game is paused.
  • All AnimState’s have a AnimateWhilePaused function, by default all normal in game objects won’t animate while the game is paused, and all widgets and screens will animate when paused, you can use this call AnimState:AnimateWhilePaused(animate_while_paused) to set the correct behavior for your animations.
  • If your widget/screen should continue to behave normally while paused, you will need to make all the following changes to it:
    • Replace any reference to scheduler with staticScheduler.
    • Replace any call to GetTime with GetStaticTime.
    • Replace any call to GetTick with GetStaticTick.
  • If your widget/screen should pause when the game pauses, you will need to make the following changes to it:
    • In your OnUpdate(dt) call, add the following to the first line in the function:
      • if TheNet:IsServerPaused() then return end
    • Call self:UpdateWhilePaused(false) on the widget/screen.
    • Call self:UpdateWhilePaused(false) on any child widgets that need to pause when the game pauses.
    • Call AnimState:AnimateWhilePaused(false) on any child widgets that have an AnimState.
  • If you want your screen to support autopausing, you must do the following:
    • Add the following code to the constructor of your screen:
      • SetAutopaused(true)
    • Add/Create the following to the OnDestroy function of your screen:
      • SetAutopaused(false)
  • If the top center of your screen is being used, you can move the server paused text to somewhere else by adding this function to your screen:
    • function YourScreen:OffsetServerPausedWidget(serverpausewidget)
    • And then call serverpausewidget:SetOffset(x, y) inside the function.

In Game Chat:


  • Announcements will now show up in the chat queue instead of at the top of the screen.

  • Added profanity filtering.
    • The filtering can be toggled in the options menu via “Steam Chat Filtering”.
    • The profanity filtering can also be configured with various options in your Steam Community Content Preferences. (
    • Why is DST’s own text getting filtered? This would be a bug, please report the issue in the bug tracker.

Hallowed Nights Returns!

Players can once again discover tricks and treats around The Constant. Fill your candy bag to the brim and satisfy your sweet tooth with all sorts of sugary seasonal treats! The event remains largely the same as last year although we did add a treat or two.

Free spooky costumes are also available for a limited time, so enjoy them before the event ends and they go back from whence they came!

That's not all. During Hallowed Nights, logging in for the first time will earn you "The Trick or Treat Chest" containing one of 18 heirloom costume sets. More Trick or Treat Chests can be earned by using the Trade-Inn with a significantly increased chance for elegant items.

A new set of Survivors has had costumes added to the Costume Collection. The Survivors Costume Chest, Part II ($9.99usd/16 RMB).

New Streaming Drops!

We are adding the "Monstrous Horror" skin to the Nautical Collection. For more information on streaming drops and how to get them, check out the post here.

And finally

As we head towards the holidays, we have our seasonal events coming up. We also have a super-secret project that we have been super careful not to leak that we absolutely cannot reveal at the moment. We will also be doing another Costume and Art submission event later this month. In addition to that, the team is well on their way toward the Wolfgang refresh for December along with the usual Winter Festivities.

Now it's time to share our usual vague teaser for the next update. Sorry to be so cryptic this time, but who knows, maybe you can figure it out!

New Streaming Drops!

We are adding the "Skittersquid Helm" skin to the Nautical Collection. For more information on streaming drops and how to get them, check out the post here.

Coming up next!

Ok - I can't say a lot about what's coming up next. We have some pretty significant QOL stuff coming. We also have our regular Hallowed Nights event and we'll be doing another costume submission event as well.

Oh, and our next character refresh is Wolfgang coming up in December. So there's that. Which is nice. I am sure nobody is going to have an opinion on that so It's probably barely worth mentioning.

I don't have a teaser image today, because of reasons I can't say right now. But we're neck-deep in work to prepare for our busiest time of the year, so we've got a lot coming up for you over the next couple of months.

And finally, here is a link for some Klei rewards points. Use them wisely!

Have fun out there!

Left adrift at sea in the sweltering heat, our Survivors thought they were surely done for. And perhaps they would have been if luck hadn’t landed them beneath the protective boughs of an enormous tree. A tree that, remarkably, seemed to spring from the ocean itself. Believing themselves to be saved, the Survivors began collecting the bounty of fruit and materials the great tree had to offer, not realizing that they were not the only ones to have found safe harbor beneath the canopy...

We also have a new special thing we have never done before that we're pretty excited about for October that is super secret. Ok, so I just realized I can't really talk about anything we have coming up next, but things are about to get interesting.

Until then, if you feel tech savvy, you can follow the instructions below to restore your worlds. And remember to backup your save files first. Thank you to everyone who provided bug reports on the issue.


  • In the host server screen, click on the open folder button (it is above the delete button)
    • < ! Backup this folder or you run the risk of losing your world permanently ! >
  • Within the Cluster folder, navigate to Master/save/session/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/
    • xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx is a 16 digit series of numbers and letters. If you have multiple folders, you can search the server_log.txt to see which number is referenced.
  • In this folder:
    • write down the highest number of the files located here (not including the folders). Eg: 0000000032 and 0000000032.meta
    • Delete the other number files (do not delete the folders or GemCoreTileData if it exists)
  • Now navigate to Caves/save/session/yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy/
    • yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy is a different 16 digits from what is in master
  • In this folder:
    • Find the highest number of the files located here and change the filename to match the numbers that were in master. Eg: 0000000032 and 0000000032.meta
    • Delete the other number files (do not delete the folders or GemCoreTileData if it exists)
  • Restart DST
  • You should now be able to load your world. If it does not work, then restore your backed up files and try again.

Rev. 458469 (Release)

Today we have our next character refresh! We also have some new skins and a new short. No foolin'!

Don't Starve Together: C'est La Vie

Some people just seem to attract more than their fair share of bad luck... and even those people are grateful they aren't Wes.

Last year Wes received a character refresh that was largely divisive among members of the community. While our intention was to give him the proper attention he deserves, we didn't sufficiently focus on changes that really emphasize the essence of who Wes really is.

Here are the details:

  • Wes now has a Balloonomancy crafting tab where he can inflate various types of balloons
    • Balloon - The same old balloons, now with a few more shapes
    • Speedy Balloon - An overly inflated balloon to help become lighter on your feet, but don’t let go!
    • Party Balloon - Gather some friends and pop these to host a small party
    • Inflatable Vest - Acts as a life jacket, preventing damage from falling in the ocean.
    • Balloon Hat - Just a little dapper with some rain protection, and completes your balloon outfit
  • Now has the lowest stats of all the survivors
  • Hounds waves will focus more on Wes than the other survivors.
  • Is more susceptible to overheating and freezing
  • Takes longer to recover from grogginess
  • Has a higher chance of being struck by lightning
  • Is less efficient at mining, chopping, and hammering
  • Tools and weapons used by Wes will not wear out as fast
  • No longer suffers from an increase in hunger drain
  • Removed the 100 balloon per world limit

More details:

  • The Sea Fishing Rod, Trusty Slingshot, Tackle Box and Spectackler Box can now be eaten by Eyeplants.
  • Fixed a bug causing certain creature spawners (Hound Mounds, Beehives, Spiderdens, ect) to not always spawn their respective creatures.

Notes for Modders:

  • AnimState:SetSortOrder() now takes a range of -3 to 3
  • AnimState:SetFinalOffset() now takes a range of -7 to 7
  • Added the component “efficientuser” to allow players to modify the amount of uses consumed on the equipped item when performing actions.
  • Added the component “houndedtarget” to allow weighted selection when assigning spawns during a Hound or Depths Worm wave.
  • Added loyaltyeffectiveness to the leader component which scales the duration an NPC will follow the player for when fed
  • Recipes can now define “dropitem = true” to cause crafted items to be dropped instead of going into the player’s inventory.

New Skins!

Wes Deluxe Wardrobe ($10.99): The Deluxe wardrobe contains the Fool, Guest of Honor, Triumphant, Survivor and Roseate skins for Wes.

The Fool's Tool Chest contains skins for the Walking Cane, Top Hat, and Pan Flute. $3.99 (8 CNY)

Streaming Drops!

In case you missed it, we're offering a new set of streaming drops over on Check out this post for details.

Login Bonus!

Still Salty?

The Salt Box Shaker has been added to Klei Rewards. Here is a link for 1200 points, Valid until May 1st.

Coming Up!

I can't get into details right now. But the team is working toward finishing the Return of Them arc. Obviously this means a lot of things and more info will come soon, but I thought it would be nice to reveal the hidden image from the roadmap. What is it? Who made it? Why does it matter? You'll find out soon.

Rev. 455433 (Release)

Hey everybody.

We're back with another QOL update, this update contains some changes to world options, they have been split into two categories, world settings (things affect the world after it has been generated), and world generation options (things that affect world generation). By default, saving and loading presets will work as before, or can choose to unlink the world settings and generation options and manage their presets separately. If you host a dedicated server, the method for applying world options is unchanged and will continue to work just fine.


  • Containers can now be opened by multiple players at the same time.
  • All actions can be repeated by clicking and holding the action button.
  • All crafting recipes can be repeated by double clicking and holding the crafting button.
  • Setting world generation options to “More” will no longer generate more of that object in every biome, it will now only generate more of that object in biomes where that object already exists.
  • World settings, (things that affect game behavior after the world has been generated) can now be changed after a world has been generated.
  • The preset menu has been overhauled to allow custom presets to be named.
  • Added over 20 new world generation options.
  • Added over 60 new world settings.
  • The server commands menu (eg. roll back, regenerate the world, etc) is now accessible via the “Server Commands” button in the not-a-pause pause menu.
  • The rescue command has been added to the Server Commands menu.
  • The player listing screen (scoreboard) can now also be accessed via the not-a-pause pause menu
  • Added world settings to assist players when joining someone’s server. These settings should only have an impact on public servers. If you are locally hosting your own private world that only you and some friends play on, your experience will not be affected.
    • Extra Starting Resources. New players joining a world after day 10 will start with a few extra resources to make up for the starting area being most likely picked clean.
    • Seasonal Starting Items. New players joining a world that is not in autumn will receive a basic seasonal clothing item to help them survive long enough to get started.
    • Spawn Protection. When a player spawns in, if there are too many structures near the spawn point or if there are hostile creatures, the player will gain a temporary buff that allows them to walk through structures and prevents them from being targeted.
    • Drop Items on Despawn. Sets whether a player will drop only irreplaceable items or drop all their items when they leave the server.
  • Year of the Beefalo has ended.
  • Beefalo bell has been moved into the tools crafting menu,
  • Beefalo groomer has been moved into the structures crafting menu. Recipe changed a little.
  • The Year of the Beefalo skins are available all the time now.

Bug Fixes

  • Ice now floats
  • Lesser Glow Berries now have a different animation on the ground.
  • Fixed a bug causing birchnut trees to update when they shouldn’t

Notes For Modders

  • The worlddeciduoustreeupdater component is now deprecated
  • You can see this post for the modding api changes made in this update.

Workshop API Upgrade

The Steam Workshop API has been upgraded, this provides the following improvements:

  • Mods will be smaller in file size, along with downloading faster.
  • Updates won’t require redownloading the whole mod, instead only the changes are downloaded.
  • The File limits imposed by the previous API are gone.
  • Mods will be automatically updated by the steam client without the game even needing to be open.
  • The Mods Tab should perform better due to using the faster API for getting mod info.

More Victorian Skins!

The gang's all here! The rest of the survivors get the Victorian treatment in the Latecomers' Victorian Chest for $7.99 or you can get the Complete Victorian chest for $24.99usd. I don't know about you, but I need that Wortox skin, like now.

New Login Bonuses!

We have a new login bonus for you. The worm Riddled Chest contains the Snaggletooth Wormhole, Lureplant Wormhole, Arachnoid Wormhole and Glow Berry Bush skins just for logging in to the game.

And this week's Klei Rewards link!

Twitch drops are still on Hiatus but hopefully, we'll have some news pretty soon about their return. But for now, have 1700 points and get something cool. (Link expires on 3/18/2021)

And that's it for now.

We're not quite ready to show you what we're working on just yet, but we will post something as soon as we've got something ready. Until then, have fun out there!

December 15, 2020 - Reap What You Sow

Gathering seeds and nourishing soil,

In hopes that the crops will produce at their best,

(Just make sure that you keep a sharp eye out for pests!)

The Reap What You Sow Update is now live. With this new update we have made substantial changes to farming in Don't Starve Together. We also have a little bit of extra holiday fun to share and new Twitch Items as well!

  • Applied Horticulture has been republished as two separate books. The first book, Applied Silviculture will cover your basic resource needs while the second book, Horticulture, Abridged, will grow all things edible.

Note for modders

  • Containers now have a priorityfn allowing containers to specify high priority items that should go into the container instead of the inventory. This runs on the clients and server.

And if you're still paying attention, here is a link for some in-game spool (link valid for 30 days). This will grant you 900 spool to get some cool stuff, just in time for the holidays!

We need to get the console version updated with fixes from to beta version so we expect this update to be available for console early next week. Of course, everything is taking a little extra time right now, so it may take longer than we think, but we'll post if we find out there has been a significant change in timing.

Final Note

We’re already hard at work on the next update. With the holiday event season starting up we have a lot to do, so the normal content and character refresh schedule is going to be a little out of whack for a bit. We have the beta for another content update coming in November followed by its release and Winter’s Feast in December. After a much-needed holiday break in December, we will bring you The Year of the Beefalo and then (hopefully) be back to our normal schedule.

I have a new little teaser for you for the November beta update. This is a pretty big one, and something a bit different, but… I think you’re gonna like it.

Rev. 157080

DST Caves Live.png


  • Now, you can have worlds consisting of more than one layer! One of those layers is the Caves preset, full of spelunking goodness.
  • Caves look a little different than in Don't Starve. The layout is different, mushroom forests abound, and the sinkholes have gotten much larger.
  • As well, the ruins have found their way up to the same level as the caves. So be warned as you are wandering around in the dark! You might just find yourself in a nightmare…
  • Many items and objects in the game have undergone some tweaks and changes, especially things found in the caves. So pay attention!
  • As well, dozens of existing bugs have been fixed! Yay! But we probably added lots of new ones too. That's how it goes!

Some other things to be aware of

  • Now when you make a server you pick an "intention" for it. This is to help players joining your server for the first time understand what kind of gameplay you're expecting on your server.
  • If a direct connection can't be established to a server, the game can use NAT Traversal. This means it's easier to set up a server, with no need to mess with router settings.
  • Official Steam Controller support is in, and several small tweaks and improvements to controllers have been made.
  • There is now a dedicated server for OSX. This is especially important so that Mac users can run their own caves.

April 21, 2015 - Integration of Reign of Giants Beta

Rev. 134480

DST RoG Addition.png


  • Wigfrid is a playable character who is a stage actress. She went a bit too deep into method acting for her latest role, an ancient Valkyrie. She only eats meat and excels in battle.
  • Webber is a playable character who is a young boy. Specifically, he’s a young boy who lives inside of the spider who tried to eat him long ago. He’s a monster who has learned some tricks from his arachnid encasement.
  • Spring is a new season that brings heavy rains. With the rain comes more active flora and more aggressive fauna.
  • Summer is a new season that brings a blistering heat wave. Plants will shrivel and you will too if you don’t keep cool. Oh, and the season previously known as Summer will be henceforth known as Autumn.
  • Two new biomes: the Desert and the Deciduous Forest. Both are filled with new creatures, plants and gatherables. As with most things in Don’t Starve Together, they’ll help you survive. Or maybe kill you.
  • Giants for every season! Deerclops isn’t the only big bad lurking out there, now.
  • Rabbits and other small creatures that can go in your inventory need food too! You can feed them to keep them alive, but if you lock a rabbit in a box and leave it there for days, it’ll starve and turn into meat. And then rot. Yuck.
  • Food left on crockpots and on drying racks will start spoiling before you collect it. They would previously last forever until harvested.
  • If you don’t have any gear that protects you from the rain (there’s some new things for that!), the rain will make your character wet. If they get wet enough, they’ll start cooling down and losing sanity. Previously, the rain would directly make you lose sanity.
  • Structures with wood in them can burn. You can hammer down the burnt husk to get some resources back.
  • Fire propagation has been reworked. It’s still a menace, but it spreads more slowly, so you’ll have some chance to fight fires. There’s even water balloons to help with this!.
  • The Ice Flingomatic has an emergency mode instead of being turned completely off. If it detects a few things burning down in quick succession, it’ll activate and try to save what it can.
  • Giants are generally more present in the world, rather than jerks who come down from the proverbial hills to harass one unlucky player per season.
  • The color of a Thermal Stone is now based on its temperature relative to the ambient temperature of the world, rather than having fixed temperatures at which its visuals change.
  • It should also be a bit more effective at heating and cooling.
