Year of the Carrat is an event in Don't Starve Together that began on January 23 2020.[1] It is inspired by the Chinese Year of the Rat, which started on January 25, 2020 and ends on February 11, 2021. In the Chinese zodiac, each year is related to an animal in a 12-year cycle.

It is similar to the Year of the Gobbler, Year of the Varg, and Year of the Pig King events, which came in the years before, and shares mechanics with them, such as the Offerings crafting tab, and most craftable items from those events. However, there are several additions and differences to be implemented into this event. Players can revisit this event by setting Events to Year of the Carrat in the World Customization menu.

The Carrat Shrine is a craftable Structure located in the Structures Tab, and requires 8 Gold Nuggets and 2 Boards to craft. It is always available to craft and does not require prototyping.

Offering a Carrot or Seeds to the Carrat Shrine will grant players access to the Offerings Tab where they are able to acquire event-specific items using Lucky Gold Nuggets.

Lucky Gold Nuggets are used to acquire items from the Offerings Tab and can be obtained from Red Pouches offered by a Carrat after a Carrat Race.

Icon Offerings Offerings Tab

Icon Offerings

Tab Icon.

The following items can be obtained from the Offerings Tab when standing next to an activated Carrat Shrine, each of them having a different function. These items cannot be prototyped; in order to craft an item under this tab, the player must always be near a Carrat Shrine.

Starting Point Map Icon Carrat Race

Competing in a Carrat is the only method of obtaining Lucky Gold Nuggets during the event. It can be initiated by placing a Carrat at a Starting Point and by activating the bell. The race can be started at any moment.

When the race start, 3 Charlie's Carrats appear as competitors if only one carrat entered the race. All competitors run to the closest Checkpoint in range and keep going until all checkpoints have been visited by all competitors. The race finishes when all competitors reach a Finish Line.

Once per day, competitors bring back a Red Pouch to their owner. The winning Carrat receives a large Red Pouch with 2 to 12 Lucky Gold Nuggets, depending on the length of the race, with 1 extra Lucky Gold Nugget every 4.5 tiles. All other competitors receive a small Red Pouch 1 Lucky Gold Nugget.

The Carrat is a Mob exclusive to Don't Starve Together, introduced in Return of Them. It is found in the Lunar Island Biome on the Lunar Island. It first takes on the appearance of an unpicked Carrot and reveals itself upon being picked. A Carrat can be obtained in the Inventory either by catching it with a Trap or by using a Shovel on the planted form, which will stun it for a short while and allow it to be picked up.

During the Year of the Carrat, Carrat can be bought from Carrat Shrine with 4 Gold Nugget. Carrat can also appear in the back of Beefalo, with a 33% chance every night per Beefalo Herd. The Carrat will unmount the Beefalo to eat nearby seeds and then mount another Beefalo. The Carrat is dropped when the Beefalo dies.

Carrats can compete in Carrat Races. Their performance in the race is defined by 4 skills, each skill is rated on a scale from 0 point to 5 points as displayed by the Carrat Scale.

  • Carrat Scale Speed
    The Speed skill increases the speed of a Carrat, from 5 up to 7. The Carrat also gains a random bonus of up to 1 speed at the beginning of each race.
  • Carrat Scale Endurance
    The Endurance skill increases the time a Carrat can run without pause, from 2-4 seconds up to 22-24 secondes. A pause lasts 2-3 seconds. Carrats with 0 Endurance have a 10% chance to sleep 3-6 seconds after each pause.
  • Carrat Scale Reflex
    The Reflex skill reduces the reaction time at the start of the race, from 2-4 seconds down to 0 seconds. Carrats with 0 Reflex start the race being stunned for 4-5 seconds.
  • Carrat Scale Navigation
    The Navigation skill reduces the angle deviation from the objective from 0-100° down to 0-30°. Carrats with 0 Navigation have a chance to returns to a point they already visited.

Naturally spawned Carrats start with 5 randomly distributed points, while Carrats bought from a Carrat Shrine spawn with only 3 points. Carrats randomly lose 1 or 2 points every night, unless they have been training the same day. Carrat skills cannot go below the Carrat's initial skill points.

Carrats change their color when eating Seeds. Crop Seeds give a specific color, while regular Seeds give a random color. The table below resumes the color associated with each of the Seeds.

Color Seeds
Normal Carrot Seeds (Seeds 12.5%)
Blue Watermelon Seeds (Seeds 12.5%)
Brown Onion Seeds Potato Seeds (Seeds 12.5%)
Green Asparagus Seeds Durian Seeds (Seeds 12.5%)
Pink Dragon Fruit Seeds Pomegranate Seeds Toma Root Seeds Pepper Seeds (Seeds 12.5%)

Charlie's Carrats are the opposing competitors in the Carrat Race. Three of them appear when a Carrat Race starts with only one Carrat entered. They disappear at the end of the race, players are not able to interact with them.

Charlie's Carrats' skills depend on the total of the player skills points. One Charlie's Carrat has points randomly distributed equivalent to 75% of the total minus 0-3 points. Another Charlie's Carrat has points randomly distributed equivalent to 75-90% of the total minus 1. The third Charlie's Carrat has points randomly distributed equivalent to 80-110% of the total.

The three costume pieces of the Lucky Beast are hats and can be obtained in exchange for 8 Lucky Gold Nuggets each at the Carrat Shrine.

While they are worn as hats, the "/dance" emote will be replaced with a different dancing animation. If the player simultaneously wears a costume piece and dances, a Sanity bonus equal to that of the Tam o' Shanter (+6.7 Sanity Meter per minute) will be applied to the character. This bonus is increased if there are more players participating in the vicinity (wearing a costume piece and dancing). This bonus can stack up to a max of 3 times (+20 Sanity Meter per minute), for three players dancing.

Durability only decreases when the character is dancing while wearing a costume. Durability lasts for a day, and a Sewing Kit will repair 100% of its durability.

The Carrat Figure can be crafted from the Sculpt Tab after acquiring its Sketch from the Carrat Shrine and giving it to a Potter's Wheel. Depending on whether the player chooses to place 1 Marble, 1 Cut Stone or 1 Moon Shard on the wheel before sculpting, the resulting Figure will be white, black or translucent green.

Similar to Chess Pieces, Carrat Figure can be carried around on the players' backs and can be used for decorational purposes.

Kois

Dappled Koi and Golden Koi are medium Ocean Fishes. They appear close to player in the Ocean and can be caught with a Sea Fishing Rod.

Kois can be murdered to obtain one Raw Fish, and can be cooked for one Fish Steak. They can be used as a Crock Pot ingredient and count for 1 Meats and 1 Fishes. They spoil after 1 day in the inventory, leaving one Fish Meat. This can be prevented with the Tin Fishin' Bin.
