comment What are the statistics and mechanics behind the Spawning of Presents from the 2014 X-Mas Trees?
I'm on my second tree now, and my first one had just one present and hasn't spawned any others. The second one I've left the present alone, haven't seen any new ones.

comment Finding gold in Don't Starve
I've found that if I mess with the world generation settings, sometimes I can't find certain things in my worlds (gold included). Are you perhaps changing any of the settings?

comment How long does the revenge option last?
My single data point - I have 2 weeks of defense log, all of those I can revenge if I didn't attack first and haven't revenged already. It's 38 entries total. I don't think I can draw any definitive conclusions based on this single data point, however.

comment Is there any benefit to removing the X-Mas tree from my land?
@Ellesedil, I've seen screenshots of people's bases with 5 presents under the tree, but like you my tree has only spawned one in the couple of days I've had it. So I don't know at this point.

comment What to do with excess gold/elixir in the early game?
@Ellesedil, indeed, the Gem Box is quite a find - that was added recently, and is one of very few ways to get guaranteed free gems in the game.

comment Base plan - storages concentrated or distributed
@Fennekin, yes, BARCH is a solid strategy - it's important to know what a full collector/storage looks like so you can tell what percentage of the available resources you'll get from hitting one versus the other.

comment Purity affinity Victory
Did you maybe disable the victory by unchecking it in the advanced options? Usually all the possible victory conditions are always in the quests, regardless of what way you've chosen to play.
