NomadCF Posted November 12, 2012 Share Posted November 12, 2012 I mean a being able to set the difficultly higher (making it harder). As it sits now, the game is just way to forgiving. I'm on my 3rd play (the 1st two where short lived from a swamp tentacle, and the second my Character refused to eat anything (I found this to still be case from time to time. But simply moving the Character to a different spot fixes this). And each of the first two to play throughs only lasted about ten days. But here on my 3rd play through, I'm up to 115 days and see no reason to continue playing. My Character became 100% green (being completely self sufficient at day 20). And if that wasn't bad enough, I never had to go through the "tech" tree, as I found no need too.I found zero reason for the fallowing items.1. Armor2. spear3. farm land/plots4. alchemy machine (and everything it can research)5. effigy (I can see the reason...kinda. But never built one... seems kinda like a cheat. The idea is to make it on 1 life)6. hats7. hair from anything8. razor ?9. the tent (at least for now)10. pig housesWith the exception of the fire pit and net. All the other tech, Is useless. There is no need for armor as there is no reason really you should be in harms way. The example of collecting silk. It could be dangerous if you went it alone. But if you take even just one pig you can collect OR kill any nest with out any risk.Safe way to collect silkBefriend a pigrun to attack the nest, but you'll need to have come lead time on the pigattack the nest 1 time to draw out the (4) spiders.Run toward your pignow continue to circle around the pig, the pig will kill all the spiders 1 at a timedo this twice and the nest is empty.Or take for example that massive tree demon. I find no reason for anyone not to be able to kill him and or even have him chase you.Avoid Tree demonagain let the pigs do all the work, get a pif friend.run and chop at a tree 1 time, the pigs will continue to do all the work and chop down the surrounding trees.If the tree demon does show up, it won't go after you as you didn't provoke him the pigs did ! Kill Tree demonBuild a fireRun around the fire, force the tree demon to pass though it. It'll take time (about 5 flare ups! and the demon is dead)Dealing with Werepigs (or anything chasing really) is simpler yet. Just find a "sharp" corner or wall of tree and run around it. The path finding in the games lacks anything more then basic fire and forget straight line running approach. This also leads to how you can have your own pig army (work force) with out the need to houses for them .Free never leaving pig army (work force)Befriend any pigs you want lead them back to your your island. Once It's time for them to "go home" they'll simply try to run straight towards home. Getting stuck at the bottom of your island. Always ready and waiting for you with out the need for houses.Here's my complete break down of how to be green.Limit using anything that can get used up and not replaced with out needing other tools OR in other words try not using anything that requires stone OR flint. (duh)Don't hunt, hunting wears down your tools. Trapping uses only things that can be replaced freely! Trapping can also be done at night while you do nothing or something else. It also can have 100% success rate.Don't use wood for getting though the night unless you have too. Try using fire flies, you don't even have to catch them to use them. Simply find the spot they'll light up and stand there (don't move!). For base fires use grass, twigs, poop, etcIf you have to collect wood, use pigs! you can clear large sections of trees using only 1% of you axe.When collecting and attacking spider nets (using the above method), don't use any tools. Use the Ctrl key and attack it with your bare hands (why waste the 1%). Don't build pig houses, just lead them to your island.Use pig poop instead of trying to make you way over to buffalo. Not only can you make use it's closer to you. But you can force them to make as much as you want !If you need a fire try a touch, since it uses the grass and twigs is free.Move plants (Grass, bushes, etc.) to you only after collecting the goods off of them 1st. Farms are a waste for your every day needs. If you got the extra land go for it. but trapping is way more plentiful.Ways to improve the game economy.Everything has a self life. Fresh Meat,fruit,etc should spoil. Cooked should last longer ? maybe add in a dried foods type. They last longer but heal less ?Trees should out right die, and regrow else where. this would stop wall building.Pigs trying to "get home". should be able to swim OR jump off the cliff. This is the simplest fix for the line of sight way pointing.Rabbits should limited, but reproduce over time. Take the number of rabbit holes the level starts with. That your max for the whole game. Every 2 rabbits, genereates a 3 rabbit up the to max ever X time. And they should "grow"/spread out from the arounds that haven't been hunted. Werepigs should loss interest in the current target, if they are stuck. This will fix the issue of them chasing birds, and then getting stuck at the edge of the island.Fire flies, should either roam after let go OR die after X time. This would fix the infinite light source. While writing this I came up with an accuse (mean a use) for the effigy...Teleporter! Why run all the way back to my base, when I can just off myself and WHAM. I'm magically back in my base ! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
