Don’t Starve Together was released in 2016, but it is still going strong in 2022, according to Steam players data. Some players have spent hundreds of hours in the game. Understandably, things might get stale at that point. Worry not because we have compiled a list of essential mods that will make the game feel fresh and improve your experience at the same time.
The developers have given mod support to the game to make it easier for players to implement them. However, since this is a multiplayer game, we have not included mods that would take away from the fun and make the game too easy. With that said, here are the top 10 mods for Don’t Starve Together.
Top 10 Mods for Don’t Starve Together
While you might not agree with all of the picks on the list, some beneficial mods will improve your gameplay experience. Plus, we didn’t mention mods that are considered “cheating” or make the game extremely easy. Doing so will defeat the purpose and challenge of Don’t Starve Together. These mods only enhance your gameplay.
The game does not allow players to see each other’s locations on the minimap. While this is an intentional game design, it can get annoying at times. The game is challenging without having to spend extra time looking for your teammates. This mod solves that issue and allows you to see your partner’s location on the map at all times. This makes it easy to find them if you are separated.
This mod is easily one of our favorites. Installing it will allow you to see how long your Campfire will last. Not only that, but you can also see the timer of other burning objects such as Fire Pit, Night Light, and Endothermic Fire, to name a few.
On top of that, players can also see how rain and other dampening elements affect the fire. The timers of each fire are separate, and they do not overlap with each other. They don’t even cause your game to lag, which is quite impressive.
Display Food Value
One of the core mechanics of Don’t Starve Together is resource management. Plus, you also need to keep track of your hunger, sanity, and health, among other things. However, the game doesn’t do an excellent job of explaining which food will fill your hunger bar up. This means that you have to make a lot of trial and error.
Worry not because this mod will let you see exactly how much a specific food will fill you up. You can see how much sanity, health, and hunger food will give and eat accordingly. This is extremely helpful because you won’t have to eat unnecessarily.
Increased Stack Size
Many players feel that Don’t Starve Together has a small stack size. You often have to leave things behind to efficiently hoard items. However, this mod solves that problem. You can stack everything up to 999 and carry them as well. This solves all the resource management problems and allows you to take stuff without issues.
Simple Health Bar
Often, players feel that the game does not provide enough information. This applies exceptionally well to combat. You have to hit an enemy to see how much HP it has. However, when you strike an enemy, they will hit you back. More often than naught, you pick the wrong fight due to either curiosity or misjudge the HP.
The Simple Health Bar mod allows you always to see the HP of things near you. This will enable you to pick your fights carefully.
This mod does exactly what the name implies. It allows you to fast travel to various spots on the map. On top of that, it also has a useful UI that lets you see how much hunger and sanity you will lose while fast traveling.
The drawback is that this will make the game easier and take out the challenge of exploring the map. We suggest that you do not use this mod in the early game since that will take out the fun and the challenge. Once you have discovered most of the map and have been playing for some time, you can use this mod freely without the fear of making the game easy.
Improved Moon Visuals
Players often feel that it can be challenging to know when a full moon is approaching. Considering that the full moon is something every player should prepare for, it can be pretty troublesome. However, this mod lets you keep track of each subphase to know where the moon is moving. This adds excellent immersion and allows you to keep track of important things without making the game easier.
The Don’t Starve series has an isometric point of view. It can make it difficult for players to place particular objects when building. Worry not because this mod makes it convenient to put stuff on the ground and makes your digital house easy to assemble. There are different color options, which makes it easy to plan every aspect.
If you’ve ever played the game before, you will know that optimal storage is a struggle in Don’t Stave Together. However, the Storm Cellar mod gives you 80 slots that are all fireproof. Not only that, but these slots also keep things cool and are immune to giant-based damage as well.
Finally, our number one pick is the Character Mods. Created by the talented Miss Kiibie, this mod allows various character models. It makes multiple sessions of the game engaging and fun without your friends. There are dozens of models to choose from, and it depends on your preference which you like. Regardless of which you pick, there is no doubt that you will enjoy using this mod.
