EASY MAP SWAPPING | Dedicated Server Guide Don't Starve Together

Welcome to another Don’t Starve Together Dedicated Server guide! Today I’m going to show you how to easily set up your secondary shard to swap in a map for a Don’t Starve Together loot world. This is fairly straightforward process and involves a simple renaming of shard folders, and this will give you access to many more resources than you might normally have on a two-map world. Next dedicated server guide will focus on how to set-up and configure three seperate shards on a Don’t Starve Together server!

The debris from the moon didn’t just reach the forest. It’s influence has penetrated down into the caves as well, not only mutating its already strange occupants, but opening areas that had been long forgotten. Forgotten Knowledge is the sixth major release of updates under the Return of Them theme and adds two new cave biomes: the Lunar Grotto and the Ancient Archives. It also adds several new mobs, three new crockpot recipes, and two crafting stations including another moon altar and a station for crafting natural turf.

Troubled Waters, the fifth Don’t Starve Return of Them update, added new ocean mobs, foods, craftables, structures, and eight new crockpot recipes. It also added leafy meat as a crockpot ingredient and renewable volt goat herds.

She Sells Seashells went live in April 2020. An Island fragment of the moon has left a lonely creature stranded. Is it friendly? Time will tell. New features include messages in bottles, the moon fragment island, the Crabby Hermit, Crab King, new seasonal fish, the Wobster and Wobster Den the Winch Boat structure, sunken treasures, and singing shells.

Throughout 2019, Klei released a series of game updates available to all players, under the single thematic focus entitled “Return of Them.”

“Hook, Line, & Inker” will be remembered as the big fishing update. We finally have the tools we need to go sailing and fish around literally anywhere in the ocean. This update added over a dozen new ocean mobs, three new crockpot recipes, and tons of new craftable items and structures. Most of these new additions are tailored toward the goal of dramatically expanding the fishing experience in DST.

Charlie’s machinations have come to a head as she turns her attention towards the skies – and the mysterious entity that awaits there. Our Survivors will be forced to contend with terrifying monstrosities beyond their comprehension, and yet, there may be a silver lining: their minds and horizons will be expanded under the sublime light of an ancient moon.

Here is an overview of what was added in the first update, “Turn of Tides:”

Added a new multiplayer-centric boat mechanic, where players can build and deck out a boat for multiple survivors to travel together on
Added a new Seafaring crafting menu
Added the Lunar Island
Added Enlightenment
Added 3 new Lunar Island biomes, along with new creatures, objects, and craftables

Turn of Tides focused primarily on building the fundamental tech and infrastructure for Return of Them. Since then a significant amount of content has added to both the islands and the sea.

Don’t Starve Together is the standalone multiplayer expansion of the uncompromising wilderness survival game, Don’t Starve. Now including Reign of Giants; adding new characters, seasons, creatures, biomes, and Giant new challenges to Don’t Starve Together. Cooperate with your friends in a private game, or take your chances with strangers online. Work with other players to survive the harsh environment, or strike out on your own. Do whatever it takes, but most importantly, Don’t Starve.

  1. This is brilliant! However I don't understand why would anyone go in so much trouble instead of simply spawning it necessary items. Am I missing something?

  2. Thanks to you I have now moved my save to a dedicated server which is basically an old laptop that I had. Interestingly the performance has increased though the laptop that is hosting the game has less powerful internals than my gaming laptop from where I used to play. Everything is perfect except that every now and then I get this message while trying to log in saying that this server is not accepting incoming connections. As a result I have to again go to the host computer and restart the server. Any solution to this?

  3. I hope one day Klei adds dedicated servers to console, even if we had to pay for it I would be fine with it. Lag is very bad when I try to mega base on console and I can’t swap to PC or I lose all my skins. Is big sad 😢

  4. Really helpful video! with an interesting concept for easy loot! Really looking forward to the next video though, been struggling with it for awhile and not quite figured it out 🙂

  5. could you swap cave, go to cave, and then swap overworld and have a new whole world basically? although i guess you could just swap both and it would still work before logging in.
