Illuminating Great Bear Island - Mystery Lake


Recommended Posts

After spending two weeks of transiting from DP to ML
dragging my collection of lanterns and dwindling fuel oil supply
I bring you to another installment of Illuminating Great Bear Island

Mystery Lake never looked so good...

My final pic 

as the unexpected, unanticipated and with unwanted finality occurs...

what appeared to be a solid perch was merely a foot's breadth from death 
and with this final screenshot, my longest running playing game, which I've been nursing along
for the better of two to three years comes to a bitter and harsh ending.  
873 days in and I'm murdered by Great Bear Island for trying to bring it back to the light...

you fickle bitch...  see you in the afterlife

R.I.P.

Your dream will always live on. May the wolves howl you memorial songs during auroras. The bear will salute you in the dawn as he is leaving his warm and cozy den.

The crows will carry your spirit into the highest peaks and the snow will sprinkle the pleasant valley with glimmer of hope that one day you might come back and rekindle the island once more.

The blizzard is dancing as it is covering your past tracks with sparkle that shines from the stars in the dark skies.

You are legendary.♻️

Sorry for the tragic end, but damn that was epic! This was amazing and thank you for sharing this project with us.

 

What a journey!

Very nice, well done. Sad ending :(

Thanks for the nice words!  It's been a lot of fun in this particular sandbox and although I wish it wouldn't have ended so abruptly, especially from an area where I have perched myself many times before!  It's amazing how light truly changes the view and subsequently the mood of this game.  Without light, the world of GBI is a terrible lonely place full of despair, death and decay.  With light however, the Island seems more enchanting, livable and friendly.  That last sandbox, was also the one and only time where I was able to locate both bunkers in ML and PV and both just happened to be Hunter Prepper  Caches so from that perspective alone I've kept that walkabout alive and dedicated time to playing it .  That's the second time now where I've gone over 800 days in a single game only to be unexpected instakilled by the game from an unexpected fall.

I will donate you my fishing lines so you can begin fishing and harvesting lantern oil again😁

Next game I'm gonna go custom settings and dial up the loot for maximum salvage.  screen_5a30fea9-9604-4cb3-916e-a6e013492aa7_hi.thumb.png.8bbba5ad80a0bdf106ffc82924c61b74.png

this is an old pic from that save game before I started the Illumination project.  This is how many fuel canisters I was able to collect not including the little
pints of fuel you can find when looting or frying fish!  Takes an awful lot of fuel to fill on jerry can!
