Don’t Starve Together has received a new patch that brings a newly redesigned crafting UI. The March Quality of Life update also implements changes to Wolfgang and the Ancient Guardian.

The developers added some really nice changes to the crafting menu. The idea is to provide you with a user interface that makes it easier to search and craft the things you want.

The crafting UI now uses a filter approach instead of placing items in a specific tab. Furthermore, you can add certain recipes to your “Favorites” for easy access. You can even pin some to the side of the screen for quick crafting.

Aside from that, you can scale the entire crafting menu, separate from the HUD, so that you can create stuff without the UI hogging up the screen.

If you prefer using a controller on PC, you can use it to move and rotate the camera while the crafting menu is open. Moreover, navigating your way through your pinned recipes and being able to make items without opening the UI is now possible by using the right analog stick.

Patch Notes

  • Players can perform nearly any action while the crafting menu is open. Right-clicking on the empty ground (when no right-click action is prompted) will close the menu
  • You can now craft with items inside chests
  • Clicking on research stations (prototypers) will open the crafting menu
  • Crafting Auto Pause can be enabled in the Options screen
  • Added the Marbell, a dumbbell made of marble. These are very heavy but much more effective and durable than Golden Dumbbells
  • Improved the efficiency, durability, and ingredient cost for all dumbbells
  • You can now right-click on Wolfgang to start and stop lifting dumbbells
  • Mighty Wolfgang can now perform melee attacks with Dumbbells
  • Adjusted the damage dealt by Dumbbells
  • Dumbbells now gain Wolfgang's mightiness bonus when thrown
  • Improved efficiency of the Mighty Gym
  • Mighty Wolfgang now retains full movement speed while holding any heavy items
  • Increased the top rowing speed when Wolfgang is Mighty
  • Cloud Save
    • Added a toggle in the Server Settings Tab that allows you to control whether a save is a local save or a Steam cloud save when creating a world
  • Ancient Guardian
    • Ancient Guardian is a new fight. This is not intended to be a hard boss fight, but to be more fun than the previous version
    • Ancient Guardian’s loot table revised, better reflecting the biome and that you have to kill the Ancient Fuelweaver to fight it again

The full list of changes can be found on the game’s official website.

Don’t Starve Together is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
