Don't Starve: Hamlet. The Aporkalypse!

Originally posted on the official forums.

The Aporkalypse is here. The pre modern pigs saw it coming, did the math and put the date on a calendar. Oh look, it’s this year. What can be done!

There’s also a couple of other fun stuff added to the world. Pigs now have a place they can do some money exchange, and a new magic recipe that captures the energies of the Pugalisk has been discovered.

The new content will be best experienced with a new world as there are some world gen changes for them. So we recommend starting a fresh world to experience them.

What’s Next
In a recent update we noted that we wanted to continue the Early Access until we felt the bugs and performance were improved. There have been several improvements to the performance, but there are still some areas we are investigating to help that. We continue to work through the bug reports both on the forums and submitted through the game.

We have also decided there are a few more updates of things we’d like to put out before we’re done. So Early Access will be continuing until about April of 2019. The next is an improvement in the Quality of Life for DS players. We will focus on bringing a bunch of the improvements that have gone into DST over to single player. Watch for the QOL update on Dec 20th.

[Game Update] Hamlet - 296676

Originally posted on the official forums.

Hi everyone! We want to thank you all for all of your continued feedback and bug reports. We’re still busy here squashing bugs (Hamlet has a lot of insects afterall) and summoning up the Aporkalypse. We still have some balance changes and a bit more new content we want to get together before we feel the game is ready to leave Early Access. To that end, we feel that Dec 6th will be too soon for us to have had a good chance to tune the performance and make sure everything is in and ready for launch. The Aporkalypse will still be arriving on Dec. 6th, but we have some things we want to get done before we’re ready to leave Early Access.

If you are waiting for launch to play to have the most stable experience, we thank you for your patience and ask for a little bit more. We will make another announcement when we have a more final launch date.

Balance Changes
  • Stolen items don’t get replaced.
Bug Fixes
  • Bandit camp drops a peagawk feather, not bone shards now
  • Mole hat works better indoors during the day
  • Nettle plant should naturally bloom more consistently during the humid season
  • Fixed a possible avenue that the roc can fail to grab the player, leaving them cowering.
  • Fixed the disappearing shopkeeper desks.
  • Fixed the problem of Ro-bin eggs incubating inside containers and on shelves.
  • Fix for potential crash when entering the player’s own house
  • Exiting a burning house should not send the player off to the middle of nowhere anymore
  • Fixed the memory leak with the sprinkler
Cause we could and it was asked for a long time.
  • You can craft beard hair rug from beard hair and grass. (You know, in case you like pixel art and need black lines.)
