Don't Starve Together requires that server owners specify a cluster token before the server is online and allows players to join. Acquiring a cluster token is very easy as long as you own a copy of Don't Starve Together on Steam.

  1. Launch the game on Steam, and hit "Play" on the first menu.
  2. Click on the Account tab as shown in the following image: Don't Starve Together Account info
  3. Click Generate Server Token on the web window that pops up as shown in the following image: Don't Starve Together Generate Token
  4. Copy the generated token into the Cluster Token section of the NodePanel UI, and hit Save. Don't Starve Together NodePanel Cluster Token UI
  5. Restart the server and it should appear online shortly.

Alternative Method:

  1. Launch the game on Steam, and hit "Play" on the first menu.

  2. Hit the "~" on your keyboard, which is directly above the "Tab" key on most keyboards, this will open the debug window, which causes a brown box to appear on the screen.

  1. In the brown box, copy and paste the following command and press enter:

TheNet:GenerateClusterToken()

It will look like nothing happened, that is completely normal. It created a text file in the game files, and doesn't print any confirmation message.

  1. Click "~" again, to close the debug window.

  2. Click on the "Data" icon Dont_Starve_cluster_token_data

This will open a view of the local files. In the list you will see a file called "cluster_token.txt". That is the file that was generated by running that command.

  1. Open the "cluster_token.txt" file with a text editor, and you will see a long series of random numbers, letters, and punctuation. That's your cluster token!

  2. Copy the token into the Cluster Token section of the NodePanel UI, and hit Save. Don't Starve Together NodePanel Cluster Token UI

  3. Restart the server and it should appear online shortly.
