Re: Suggested forum modifications I have mixed good-bad feelings on the Saami picture in the background. As it currently displays it looks like Saami is peeking his eyes out over top of the blue text box. I get it that Saami ought to be visible. Its the combo of photo size vs board display. It may change for some users? For me I'm wondering if Saami is sneaking a look.

Re: How did you discover UnReal World? -- 10 choice poll I vaguely remember someone mentioning it. This was pre-steam. At the time I was between work so a free to try game with a recommendation was an 'okay lets try'. Turned out I liked it. Paid into becoming a lifetime member. Did a simple mod. Annoyed Saami for a while every time I did a minor update to the mod. We eventually just realized its better to link to the mod thread in the forum so he wouldn't have to do coding every... few days... or few hours.  ;)

What do you like to cook in real life? A common point in humanity is that we all like to eat. Since I like to eat I like to cook.  :D This a simple logic.

Wondering what other folks like to cook?

One of mine is honey fried steak.
Yep, you heard that right. Steak fried in honey.
I learned if you learn to 'listen to the oil' you can gently fry with honey. Use a low to low-medium heat and don't let the bubbling 'sound angry'. There is a trick also that the juices from the meat stop the honey from burning. So when the honey starts to turn darken then the meat has given all the juices it can making it time to stop. The steak will be pink on the inside (medium) glazed in sweet honey goodness. Super bonus that any spices you toss in will stick to the honey which sticks to the meat!

Currently I serve it out on a pita bread with optional lettuce/vegetables arranged in an outer ring. The roughage helps the body digest the meat. Well, it is like one steak per person. I tend to use cheaper more-fatty cuts since they will come out okay in the longer cooking time.

I like to pour the pan's honey-greasy goodness onto the bread too. Don't let any nutrition go to waste!

Re: Keeping the game fresh
Sometimes I edit the plant files so that every single herb and plant produces seeds (this is moderately time consuming but not hard) and then make myself a massive farm where I grow every herb and just experiment with various cooking and medicine components.

Please make this an available mod!

I've thought about something similar for spicing and medical treatment.

>>>>

As to my own methods:

One part is to have a personal quest. My current favorite is the Smith-of-the-north. Using an iron working mod I go from the Driik (or other more civilized people) to live by the northern people. Personal goal being to find the large inland lake that there always is and set up on north end or north of it. Then iron up the north people. Its like a quest to improve the people sacrificing the loneliness, and danger, of remote living.

Re: Keeping the game fresh Another thought on this is to that as I get hopes/plans for camping/hiking I watch youtube channels like Survival Lilly and Far North Buschcraft and Survival. Those get me thinking of getting out. When I can't get out of the elevated concrete cave that is my city apartment I can put myself 'in the mindset' by playing Unreal World.

Also,

There have been some tragic moments in my life where the survival mindset has helped me make it through far better than many others in similar situations. "What do you need? What do you have?" and "The forest will provide" mental repeats encouraging my mind to think of solutions to overcome a problem rather than that there is nothing possible.

PS... dear Saami, thanks for that.

Re: My first bear. Ahh one's first bear. Your character seems to be out in the frosty snow. A trusted companion Reindeer with you. The vast wilds.

What was everyone else's most memorable bear?

Well mine comes from the tale of Beodrin.

His story began with the tragic death of his father on a hunting trip. The random generated creature.... a bear!!  :o

It gets better. We were on an island! The man killing bear, dead dad and me.

At his point in my gaming and modding I thought you could only use leather to make rope. Rope to make a raft. To get off the island. To escape the man killer bear.

Now where could I get leather?
Oh oh.
There is only one source.
The bear that killed my dad!

For weeks I lived on the southern part of the island. The bear ruled the north. On one daring dash I recovered dad's gear.

I learned to sleep surrounded by traps. Fences, too, later learning man and bear alike could easily kick them down.

When a night's sleep was interrupted with "you think you hear something nearby" oh spirits was I worried!

There was only so many berry bushes on the island. Both me and the bear were eating them.

Finally I had enough leather from small game to make one, not three, ropes. So I made a the three tree trunk bear killer.

Coming back later indeed the bear had gotten into the trap. Alive. Angry. Roaring.

I tossed my three javelins for minor wounds. I tossed rocks and stones. I tossed many things. Where I could I went close to toss them again. Again and again I tossed things at the father killer. All the while the risk of it escaping the trap growing.

Perhaps my father's spirit was there. Holding the trap down on the bear.

After an arc of the sun the bear fell unconscious from dozens of minor wounds and blood loss. Most of bleeding wounds had even stopped bleeding.

Cautiously creeping forward the death stabs to the neck were made.

The bear died soon.

I had, I thought, to turn the bear into leather. So Beodrin lived a few weeks more on Bear Island to dehair the hide. Finally the raft was made and he sailed onto greater adventures. Before his death becoming known as Beodrin Two Bears, who killed two bears and wore them both. Yes he wore his father's killer. As leather armor. Ah, but those are stories for another day.

Re: What's Going On In Your Unreal World? Got a Tablet computer recently. My now 5 year old laptop has issues running the newer Unreal via steam. It was one of the signs the laptop needs replacement. Long story short rather then get a new laptop I went with a Tablet as the current mobile computing platform.

Unreal world on a Win10 Tablet working fine through steam. Restarting using mods Boudia's (an update on Rain's) and my own (Added items).

Story line is a young Driik starting in winter. Pre-start  you were needed in the fall to help with the harvest. Now in winter it is you adult year. (that much could be for any culture). Winter for a while near home (villages close to your start position) to build up gear, tools and skis and/or water craft. Then travel to far and distant land to find and make a stead. If you travel when there is snow you can ski and have more spring time for planting crops. IF you wait for spring you can water travel instead but can probably only harvest turnips in your first gardens.

With the mod the young Driik will become a smith those nearby. This being my 'young smith' challenge. I prefer to aim for the large inland lake the maps generate to be south of the Owl, north of 2-3 other cultures and you can use the rivers to raid the Nerjpez.

Right now the new character made enough home crafts to get a shovel. An important part for agriculture, clay work and ironworking.

Re: Confirmation before eating unknown items! i would like the confirmation for eating unknown added in.

Various keystroke errors by the player can ruin the gaming experience in a way not intended. Lets not User Interface or User Error shatter a play through.

IF they confirmed then truly they have made their choice.
