Since the last update I am trying to build an effigy with another character. Not trying very hard until now. Here is the old plan: you need beard hair and you get it from bunnies while insane. So lets build a fence, capture a big amount of bunnies and release inside it, grab what you need to go in and out insanity, go insane, kill the beardlings, come back to sanity and collect the stuff. Lets go about it. Created a new adventure world starring Wes the guy of few words. Took my time, built stuff and was very confortable without the effigy. But the time has come to build the bunny ranch: READY - Collected all stuff needed to start the task. SET - Went insane and equipped hands free light source GO - To hell. A terror beak showed, ignored the walls and hurt me real bad. Krampus helped to get me distracted and I killed myself by ingesting taffy. I will not give up. This world is very nice so I will start over with a big change of strategy. Not stopping until Wes has the statue.
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?
