Top 10 Don't Starve Together Mods (Basic)

The following mods are for Don't Starve Together, the multiplayer version for Don't Starve. Some of them work for the original version too, but the list is oriented to the compatibility with DST.

This is a compilation of mods that I consider great, practical, useful, and even necessary. There are a lot of great mods out there already, but the mods on my list are not intended to drastically change the basic gameplay experience. You can also show your favorite mods in the comments section at the bottom of the page.

I will also provide you with the links to download the mods from the Steam Workshop. To download a mod, just click the subscribe button. Remember, there are two types of mods:

  • Client Mod: Which can be can be used at any server you join as long as you have activated it before.
  • Server Mod: Which requires that all players have installed the mod to work.
Minimap HUD

Minimap HUD

1. Minimap HUD

As basic as it is useful, It is perhaps the most popular mod and it is practically indispensable, surely you have this mod already, and if not, you must! It adds a small map in the upper right corner, so you don't need to press m every time you got lost. The Minimap can be zoomed in and out, and you can close it and open it at any time. The map also shows your friend's locations in real-time!

Combined Status

Combined Status

2. Combined Status

You can not miss this mod. Despite being very technical as it gives you the exact values of your status, it is somewhat irrelevant because you can see how hungry you are just by looking at the drawing. It also tells you the outside temperature, your temperature, the points of wickedness, and the phase of the moon. In the latest version, they added the season clock to the mod. I think this mod improves the game HUD lot and it's also configurable.

Gesture Wheel

Gesture Wheel

3. Gesture Wheel

Press G to display a selection circle to use a gesture quickly and easily without writing anything. Simple, right? Definitely not a lifesaver, but this mod is as simple as it is practical. And if you use a controller by default, the button below the analog makes it very easy.

No More Lag

No More Lag

4. No More Lag

This mod does not improve your connection, what this mod does is disable the motion prediction. Let me explain. The game uses a motion prediction, so when you play you can see your character moving fluidly and at the precise moment you command it. Despite your lag problems, if we disable the motion prediction, the character will move and execute actions with a period equivalent to your connection delay. So is this good or bad? It depends on how you look at it. Did you experience being struck by a spider six feet away from you? this happens because your connection delay, in real-time, the spider is next to you, but the motion prediction makes you think you are far from it. Using this mod, you will know where you are exactly and prevent such errors. You can play more cautiously this way. Of course, to play with this mod can be uncomfortable for some people, but it is highly recommended when you have a high ping.

Ice Fling Range Check

Ice Fling Range Check

5. Ice Fling Range Check

This mod was originally made for the DLC, it allows you to check the range of the Ice fling machine not only when you build the machine but at any time, it is useful to know if you are building stuff within the limits of it. This should be in the game without mods, don't you think? It is simple but very, very useful.

Willow the UnNerfed

Willow the UnNerfed

6. Willow the UnNerfed

After numerous reports and complaints in Klei forums, developers decided to limit the skills of Willow, a character who apparently was the most used by troll players, which caused Willow to pass from one of the best characters in the game to be the worst. Willow's changes make her too simple and character without much grace, losing all the charm she had in previous versions. It is so bad that this mod is practically required. Basically, Willow returns to her former glory.

7. Dusk and Night Music DST

This mod adds new music for dusk and night. It adds eight new songs to the soundtrack, two for each station for the dusk and evening. The music is no different from the original soundtrack, as it is actually a remix of the original theme with a different pace for each part of the day. In my opinion, I think the author did a great job. The musical pieces could easily be on the original soundtrack. You can configure when the music plays—constant or only when working (mining, building, etc.). It definitely helps to break the monotony. I must say I love this mod!

8. Display Food Values

A basic mod that will show you the values every food will provide after eating and also the days remaining to the food to spoil. This mod allows you to have better food management.

Smart Crock Pot

Smart Crock Pot

9. Smart Crock Pot

This mod adds to the crock pot the possibility to "predict" the result of the ingredients you are going to cook, so no more food wasting! Just like the one before, this mod will help you to have better food management.

Global Positions

Global Positions

10. Global Positions

As simple as knowing where your teammates are at all times and in real-time, could perhaps break a little the game balance but still quite functional.

Nice guide, Thanks. I had already some of them, but you've listed some nice mods I didn't use before. :)
