New Area: The Great Wastes

Recommended Posts

Far to the north of Great Bear lies an empty expanse known only as the Great Wastes. Here the only thing in plenty is the permafrost, a forsaken land of white where nothing grows and the only things alive are ferocious and mean...

The idea for this just popped into my head, the basic idea being: nothingness, a great plain of white with the occasional slope or steep cliff.

Of course there'd be something, but it would be in the far reaches or not guaranteed to spawn. For instance, you might have three possible structures: a decrepit old ship run aground, a crumpled shack with broken walls and shattered windows, and a downed weather plane with instruments black and dead...but only one will ever spawn in a playthrough. Each would be at one of the far corners of the map, with no easy line of sight. This would mean you'd have to go in and check each spot to see which one spawned in.

Meanwhile, the area is freezing cold with constant bad weather and (as said before) no shelter. No caves, no trees (this means no wood for fires, either), nothing to protect you from the cold hell of Mother Nature.

For animals, you might find a bear or a moose but no game animals, maybe a fishing hut with a chance to spawn.

If reason to venture into such a hellscape is needed (something other than the thrill of the challenge) then perhaps a treasure might be found at each of the spots, each holding its own unique item, something like the flare gun. Earlier I pushed the idea of a single-barrel shotgun, perhaps you could find this in one of the locations with a limited number of shells. As to other things (or the idea in general) what do you guys think?

Sounds like blending the bad parts of Forlorn Muskeg and Pleasant Valley together to make a map that really everyone hates. Nay.

Doesn't really fit the geography of the island. Instead maybe have a vast area with LOTS of trees to block your view with no room for game animals. A few cabins here and there with a chance to be burned down.
