More stuff do to:)


Recommended Posts

Hello. Long time since last time:) I cant get enough of this game. But I have this itching, I love this game and everything about it. But I feel there should be more stuff todo in survival mode, like more stuff to craft, bigger fishes, some super rare items to find/craft. :) I have purchased TLD music collection to support the developers.

There are virtually endless possibilities for personal challenges, we just need to be creative.  I really like the fact that once we are proficient in our survival tasks that it's really up to us to decided how we live in the world Hinterland has provided us and for how long.

For example here is my current personal challenge:

(I know I've spoken about my personally applied parameters for FC before, but I don't think I really outlined all my goals for this push I've been on - so I suppose I will take a moment to review).

Main objective is to survive for 500 days ("Will to Live").
In order to make life more interesting, I'm adding the following objectives and provisos:

1. Achieve Faithful Cartographer, with additional conditions.  Start a the run on Timberwolf Mountain.  I may not leave a region until I have cleared 100% of the charcoal map.  Specifically, no smudges on any part of the main map area, and clearing as much around the edges of the map area as possible.  When going to another region I may only carry my most minimal kit (generally 13-18kg of what I consider to be just the essentials to nomad).  This forces me to start over relatively fresh and reestablish myself in each new region I enter.  (I suppose once I achieve this - this particular thread will end, since that's the subject I started it on)

2. Once I have achieved "Faithful Cartographer," I will then concentrate on, "It was THIS BIG."  I will begin this endeavor with fresh water ice fishing.  Even though salmon are the only fish in the game that are capable of naturally being over 5kg... I want to test to see if the bonus to catch weight that begins on Ice Fishing level 4 will boost the Small Mouth Bass up over it's natural 5kg max.  If possible, I want to gain this achievement by catching a freshwater bass instead of just grinding salmon in Coastal Highway.  If that bonus works as I think it does, then this should be feasible (unless the bonus still respects the weight limit).  In either case, I will not be permitted to go salt water ice fishing until I've reached fishing level 5 and I've spent at least 30 days fishing fresh water at level 5.  (I just realized I'm going to have so much lantern fuel!)

3. Assuming I've not managed to achieve it while completing the other objectives... next I will concentrate on, "Wrapped in Furs."  I will not be permitted to earn the achievement until I have pelt crafted items in all possible clothing slots.  I will only use the bearskin bedroll to earn the achievement if I am wearing: a rabbit skin hat, rabbit skin mittens, a wolf skin coat, bear skin coat (plus a moose cloak in my inventory - that's my "extra blanket"), moose satchel, two pair of deer skin pants, and deer skin boots.

4. Assuming I've not managed to achieve it while completing the other objectives... next I will concentrate on, "Skilled Survivor."  I don't have any ideas on making this more challenging... so I guess this one is just going to be pretty straight forward. 

[Addendum]
It's been my standing rule for these attempts that I don't use any badges.

Once you get to the point when you feel that way, you need to start setting goals for yourself:  obtaining all feats, badges, challenges, achievements, trying harder game modes, etc.  That should keep you busy for a while :)

Ditto, we would all love to see some additional content to keep the game fresh or else it does come pretty tedious just going thru the motions.  I think @hozz1235 made a valid point that you have to start getting creative within your own gameplay.  It used to be a few years ago, when the game had a lot less maps, that the community would come up with some creative challenges and ideas of their own.  Like who can collect the most lanterns in 30 days of in game play or who can collect the most rosehibs or something like that.  Been a long time since we had a good decorate your base camp contest.  

btw... kudos for buying the soundtrack
