Don't Starve Together [Steam, Official Site], the multiplayer expansion of action-adventure video game Don't Starve, has been updated with 'A New Reign: Part 1'. It's a big update that adds interesting new features!
Among other things, the Moon Caller's Staff has been added, and Marble Sculptures can be created with Suspicious Marble.
(I think there are also related sketches/trinkets in graves and tumbleweeds?)
The biggest changes this update brings are related to the minimap. To allow for the changes, the minimap data is now being stored on the server. Some of the minimap changes include:
- If two players have a compass equipped, they see each other on the minimap.
- New minimap icons for tree stumps, burnt trees, gold and moonrock boulders.
- The Cartographer's Desk, which allows access to a new Cartography Tab, to craft Map Scrolls.
- The Map Scroll, to share minimap information with other players.
That's not all. There is also the Mushroom Planter (to grow caps and spores), Friendly Scarecrow (to reduce crows and increase canaries), Scaled Furnace, and Potter's Wheel (to build sculptures). Plus the new Toadstool cave monster with its Sporecaps, and the related Shroom Skin that can be used to create the Mushlight and Glowcap Mushroom Lights.
SteamLUG, the Steam Linux User Group, occasionally has Don't Starve Together events, and has its own Don't Starve Together server where everyone is welcome! If you gave this game a try for a few hours and decided it wasn't your cup of tea, maybe give it another go. It may grow on you; it's a great game.
