SpaceStalin Posted February 19, 2013 Share Posted February 19, 2013 So, talking with a friend the other day (the one that got me into DS) I noticed we had very different approaches to exploring the map and starting a base.He gathers the ingredients for an axe and a couple of campfires and set to find the nearest road. From there, he follows the road until he finds a good place to set a base. So he basically goes through the island/continent/landmass thingie, until he finds a suitable place for a temporary/semi-temporary base.But, I personally like to go around it. I gather the ingredients for a backpack and an axe, get to the nearest border of the map, and follow it 'till I have marked the whole outside of the map (or a big part of it) gathering as much materials as possible. From there I follow the border of each biome I found and explore the inside of every one of them 'till I find a nice place to set a permanent or semi-permanent base (usually, near a beefalo herd, a big number of beehives or a town of pig houses).So, basically, he's an explorer while I'm a controlling maniac. Which one of us are you more alike? Or, if you're not anything like us, how's your technique to explore the ruthless wilderness? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
