Is it nap time?

The Siesta Lean-to is a craftable Structure from the Reign of Giants DLC. It requires 2 Silk, 4 Boards, and 3 Rope to craft and an Alchemy Engine to prototype.

The player is able to sleep inside the Siesta Lean-to only during the day. Doing so will advance the time to Dusk and set the player's current temperature to 15 °C, but only if the player's temperature is above 35 °C. This makes it very handy for Summer, where Heat is the most prominent threat, and dusk and night are a lot shorter than the other times of the day. Functioning similarly to the Tent, sleeping in the Siesta Lean-to will restore 60 health and 50 sanity at the cost of 25 hunger and has only 6 uses.

Wickerbottom can not use the Siesta Lean-to due to her insomnia.

The Siesta Lean-to is also included in the Shipwrecked DLC, where it can be used to deal with Overheating during the Dry Season. It works exactly as it does in the Reign of Giants DLC.

In Don't Starve Together, the Siesta Lean-to has been altered to a similar fashion as the Tent, healing over time, instead of instantly. While sleeping in the lean-to, players regenerate 1Sanity Meter.png/sec & 2Health Meter.png/sec at the cost of a mere 0.33Hunger Meter.png/sec. It also reduces Wetness by 1/second, and lowers Body Temperature by 1/second as long as the player's temperature is greater than 40. All outside temperature sources are ignored, so the player's temperature will not decrease if it is below 40.

Prototype.png Tips[]

  • One could have the Siesta Lean-to prebuilt in case of emergency overheating. It may then be placed to cool down, while also giving some sanity and health. This way of using the Lean-to should only be used if one does not have an Endothermic Fire Pit ready, as the structure has a limited amount of uses and costs time.
  • In singleplayer, a Siesta Lean-to combined with tents, can be used together to avoid seasonal bosses and even entire seasons if one has the materials and food available.

Placeholder.png Trivia[]

  • A siesta is a short nap taken during midday in some countries with hotter climates.
  • A Lean-to is a type of shelter that consists of rafters leaning against a wall or structure forming a roof. Lean-tos are associated with camping and wilderness survival.
