  • I had a idea: Putting more sounds, for example, nightmare phase noises, tallbird sounds, deerclops warnings, hound wave warnings, Etc. I think more audio could make the wiki very helpful!

  • Hey there. I noticed that the wiki doesn't have Discussions enabled, and wanted to bring forward the proposal to you and the rest of the staff regarding it. It is essentially a place where fans of Don't Starve - not just editors - can converse and interact about the game and its expansions. It wouldn't conflict with the wiki's already existing content, rather it would be a social extension to the wiki. Obviously, this is a bit of a different feature so I am very interested in hearing the wiki staff's opinions about this feature. If you have any questions about it, please let me know, and I can try to answer them.

    Thanks.

    • While I understand the convenience of staying on one platform, it seems a bit redundant to create another space for discussion when there are already many well-developed ones out on the web. 

      However, as for benefiting the wiki, the addition of Discussions may bring more users, but nothing is certain. I agree with the statement that more moderators could be brought in to negate the new platform's usage, but it seems to me that not much more can be said on Discussions that isn't already said in comments or on other users' walls.

    • First off, I'd like to apologize for the late reply.

      I share MMueck and Luvian's concerns. The Discussions feature, while it might (might) bring in more users, I do not see any real benefit from enabling it. As MMueck mentioned, the game's official forum is the community's main hub as of now, and there are numerous other platforms that serve the same purpose, and are already well-known and widely used. It seems quite redundant to create yet another one.

      The wiki's main purpose is largely just an encyclopedia of everything related to the game. A collection of information presented in a quickly navigable and understandable way, and it pretty much cemented its role as such among the community. The only discussions that really take place in the current wiki forum are almost always about the site and its maintainenece, rather than game mechanics and strategies, and I don't see any real purpose in pushing the wiki to be a platform for those as well.

      I believe doing so will most likely either end in it never happening because the wiki isn't as attractive or popular and well-known as other platforms when it comes to this role, especially the official Klei forums, or push the wiki further away from its role as a Don't Starve encyclopedia and from people handling it as such, which might impact its ability to stay up-to-date or general article quality due to the additional moderation required.

  • Hello,

    Can you remove Boat page so we can rename Boat Kit into Boat ?

    As suggested by Bluegeist in Boat Kit comment we can rename "Boat Kit" into "Boat". It will be easier for new player to find the DST Boat.

    Remarks: To prevent conflict all Shipwrecked boats link to Boats directly.

  • In created the Template Template:Solo Exclusive.

    There are some features (Wagstaff, Things, etc) that are present in Don't Starve (and its DLC) but not DST. In created the template to do the symmetry with the template Template:DST Exclusive.

    I hope it's a good idea.

  • Hello,

    Can you delete the page Warly update recipes ?

    I created the page to have a temporary list of the new recipes. Now that recipes are correctly implemented in other pages this pages became useless.

  • Hello,

    Can you please make an image for new inedible category in DST like you did for new vegetables recently? Twigs, bone shards, goat horns and nightmare fuel belong to this category and all recipes that previously excluded twigs now exclude inedible stuff in general, not just twigs.

      Loading editor
    • I add one image for Inedible in Images: [1]

      I made this one but I am not completely convince by the quality. Probably we need another one.

  • Hello MMueck,

    thank you for your welcome.

    I want to add the new recipe to the Crock pot Page. Is it possible to have an access ?

    Recipes are already set in the temporary page Warly update recipes.

    Best

    • Hey Cuikui,

      thanks for your hard work and awesome contributions!

      The Crock Pot page has been protected against edits from unregistered or newly registered editors because it is highly frequented and has been vandalized many times. I have now temporarily changed the protection settings, so you can make your edits.

      Please take care to not add any Portable Crock Pot exclusive dishes and bear in mind what content is exclusive to which game (coming from a vanilla single-player perspective). Thank you!

    • Do we have to remove Shipwrecker "Portable Crock Pot" exclusive recipes from the "Crock pot" page ? (Fresh Fruit Crepes, Monster Tartare, Mussel Bouillabaise and Sweet Potato Souffle)

      We probably do not plan to add the DST "Portable Crock Pot" recipe to the "Crock pot" page. It seem more logical to keep all "Portable Crock Pot" outside of "Crock pot".

      Maybe we can add more link beyween "Portable Crock Pot" and "Crock pot" to guide new player.

        Loading editor
    • Yes, those recipes should probably be removed from the regular Crock Pot page.

  • On the top bar where it says "Explore", there's a 'community' page where it shows proofread articles and whatnot. How do you get that?

    • Ok I got it. How do you make an inage at the top though?

  • Hey mueck, where did you find the name "Rocky Beach" in the code? I've been wondering where biome names and other data are in the game.

      Loading editor
    • Hey Bluegeist,

      the thing is that the games don't really have biomes, but rooms. Rooms are usually way more specific than what we would call a biome, for example the Grasslands biome includes a huge amount of rooms which differ slightly in content (more flowers, more moleworms, ...).

      You can find all room descriptions in the files under "data/scripts/map/rooms/".

      I guess, for the wiki it has become customary to group rooms together that are almost indistinguishable for the players. That's admittedly a bit inaccurate, but practical. :) And because turfs are a very good way to distinguish rooms, the biomes have been named after their respective turfs most of the time. For Hamlet, this worked quite well.

      For the new DST biomes in particular, I thought going with "Rocky Beach" would be fine considering the turf is called "Rocky Beach Turf". For the other ones it was a bit more difficult so I have taken some liberties. There is even another room called "Baths" that has the same contents as Lunar Forest but has Hot Springs and Saladmanders additionally. If you are unhappy with the names or have suggestions for changes, please let me know!

      So TL;DR: To my knowledge, there are no official biome names in the files. The names in the wiki are community-chosen and usually inspired by the respective turf.

    • Thank you for the reply! Do we have a template to signify pages with fan-created names? I think that would be helpful in this instance. I'm fine with the name Rocky Beach btw, but I did have some issues with other names:

        Loading editor
    • Hey Bluegeist, sorry for the late reply! I have been thinking about this for a bit.

      I completely understand your interest in choosing more accurate, original page names. The only alternative I can think of would be to use the room IDs, such as "BGForest" and "BGCaveNoisy". That wouldn't be very pretty in my opinion. However, we could certainly create a maintenance category for articles with community-chosen names.

      • Using plural for the Biomes page is in line with other overview pages such as Mobs, Items, Boats, etc. Would you be in favor of changing those too?
      • For the Painted and Cultivated biomes, I just found it very weird to have a single adjective as a page name (although we already have that for Sacred, as I just noticed). Maybe that's just because I'm not a native English speaker. What would you think of something similar to Painted Terrain / Desert / ... and Cultivated Terrain / Lands / ...?
      • Stalagmite Biomes should definitely be replaced, but it needs to be distinguishable from the Stalagmite objects.

    • No, I agree, the chosen names are more aesthetically pleasing. I just would like something to tell readers that the name is not canon, so as to avoid confusion (like I was experiencing, trying to find them in the code).

      • Oh, I did not notice that the plural thing is a naming convention. I would be in favor of changing them all to singular then, but not without other's input (like yours), I'm partial to keeping titles singular but I don't wanna impose y'know
      • I'm fine with single adjective titles, I think it sounds cool.
      • I agree with changing Stalagmite Biomes name, but I don't know what to replace it with yet..
