Bluesockes Posted July 14, 2015 Share Posted July 14, 2015 First and foremost, excellent game. $20 well spent.After playing on all three difficulties, with deaths ranging from five weeks to five minutes, I have found myself wishing for the following:Storms and Weather: A difficulty between Pilgrim (WAY too easy) and Voyager OR making Voyager just a little less "oppressive". I can't remember how many times an entire day was wasted because of a storm or a "white out". With that being said, I know that an entire day of snow, storm, or fog happens but I seem to remember losing 3-4 days in a row because of a mixture of long storms and freak INSTANT storms that give zero warning as to their approach. I do however think that Voyager difficulty is spot on when it comes to warm, cold, freezing, and transitioning between them all....but I wouldn't complain if the freezing mechanic was just a BIT less aggressive.Tools, Weapons, Items: My first play through on Voyager lasted 15 days. Never found a weapon or the requirements to make a weapon (where are the maple saplings?!). Used torches to keep wolves away. I remember thinking to myself (and still do when I play) "Oh wow, this is intense, I can't waste a single second of the day...AWESOME." I think Voyager is perfect when it comes to items, in every regard.Wolves: Wolves seem like a mixed bag depending on who you ask. My first play through (The 15 day one) I went through around seven days without ever having to deal with one. Then, they were EVERYWHERE. As far as the A.I goes for wolves, I feel that it is pretty good where it is. First few wolves I came across I was very timid, waved the torch around a lot, backed away, etc. This worked out for me. After a few more wolves I got a bit reckless and started swigging and charging, this did NOT work out for me.All and all, If the game stayed the way it is, I would still feel like I got my $20 worth. Really fun. I just hope there will be a few tweaks in the future. I read up on a few other posts regarding difficulty and agree that a custom difficulty "slider" system for each difficulty "trait" (weather, freezing, wolves, etc) would be great. The posts linked below can better explain it.viewtopic.php?f=59&t=5554&hilit=difficultyviewtopic.php?f=59&t=5924&hilit=difficultyviewtopic.php?f=57&t=6224&hilit=difficulty Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
