Re: How did you discover UnReal World? -- 10 choice poll Okay, it is a little over a year I first found this game so I wanted to write my story about it. ;D

I've always liked survival games, mostly played arcadey games like Don't Starve, Minecraft and so on. At the end of 2019 I've become interested in indigenous cultures and survival skills. While I was doing little projects of mine, I wanted a deeper and more realistic survival game too. I remember exactly searching "Hunter gatherer sim" in google. Led me to a reddit post which one user was suggesting Unreal World. It was a indie game subreddit If I remember correctly. To be honest, I was kind of dissapointed at first. I was not expecting a turn based rogue-like game. I watched some videos, saw the devs and how "real" they were about the whole atmosphere of the game. The videos which they have uploaded made me change my opinions about the game and I didn't even try the free version, I just bought it off Steam at full price :D (The price was very pocket friendly for my currency even at full). And later I bought one for my friend at sale. Now I don't even look back as I stray further away from video games, URW became the only game I still play and it is the only game which I actually joined its community. I first joined because I wanted to try some mods, but after seeing the other users were pretty chill overall, I decided to join.

I don't really know why but URW is really a special game for me, the theme the message in the outro everything is just perfect. Thank you Sami and Erkka for this amazing game.

Re: Caught my Gal sleeping on the job and discovered this amazing fact! I looked over the news.txt in the game files, CTRL+F "sleep" and couldn't find anything that points to a patch note mentioning an advantage. But I still make a bed and even put some skin over it as it kind of makes sense in my head in a roleplaying perspective. I would want some soft stuff to lay down on. ;D

Re: Creating Settlements To be honest, we may not even need marriage at the start. I honestly would be very pleasant with a "partner" that is just a companion that doesn't leave you. Maybe after that is settled, we could have a chance to have offsprings if we are "partners" with the opposite gender.

But my problem with this whole thing is, how old are your characters when you actually get all masterwork gear and everything settled? Probably very young, I don't know about other people's playthroughs but the "endgame" can be reached pretty quickly tbh. And to think that a 20 something year old adventurer is looking for immigrants for his newly founded settlement is kind of unrealistic, to me at least.

The perception of time is very slow in the game. You can basicaly visit every single cultural area in the game, do different trades, get all shiny and powerful equipment and barely pass your teenage years. Because the game is also concerned about micro, everyday decisions of your character. I feel like this is a little too pronounced. I think Erkka's game in development, Ancient Savo, can give this bigger time period feeling better because it is not concerned about every single decision of your character, but then again, those two games are in a whole two different game genres.

Having bigger goals like this can be really good and all but I can see a 25 year old guy or girl being the chief of a very populated village and I don't think this is very realistic of those times. But maybe I'm wrong, maybe the Finns all had young people founding new settlements I have no knowledge about that. I would like to read someone's opinion about all the things I wrote above.

Re: [3.70b] Hanging when changing setting at start Oooh, this is very interesting. After reading this post, I also turned the music off and fullscreened the game and got the same result as you. I am using the Steam version, but I don't think this matters. After I force closed the game and opened it, it opened without any problems though. So this exists in steam as well.

Edit: To add more context, I have not changed the fullscreen and music settings after downloading 3.70b. I've only done it after reading this post. Turning the fullscreen option to no does not create the same problem. Changing the fullscreen after the initial crash does not create any other problems.

Re: Hunting gripe Honestly, I don't think active hunting is that bad. But the caveat here is that you are somewhat "forced" (quotes are emphasized) to build your character in a certain way. You need fast character with high eyesight with bow or spear skill high, good endurance. Which makes sense, these are fundamental for hunting in wild. I tried to tackle this with trying out some crossbow builds with a Driik character, but creating a Kaumo is way easier. You don't need to push it too much, I honestly left some game after I missed the first shot. If I am in a thick forest, I look to hit them on the first shot otherwise tracking them is not my priority unless I need the meat or the skin badly.

One thing that irritated me when I was active hunting, was the damage. It always felt like my grandmaster bowman was just not able to get a critical hit on a game, I always resorted to endurance hunting because the arrow did almost no damage, but looking at the game as a whole, masterwork bow and arrow needs an edge so that they are a lot more preferable. I realized that my initial reaction to the problem was stemming from the fact that my hunting tactic almost completely revolves around getting the first hit. So damage annoyed me more than it should because I relied on it too much. In a similar manner, I think depending on a single style often results in frustration.

As for the graphical limitations, I think the game would benefit greatly from a widescreen support. This is no easy task by any means but I think it would greatly improve player's time spent in a thick forest or searching for arrows. There are some graphical edits you can make to get tracks and arrows stand out more but these are rather "hacks" more than anything. But don't let this make your game experience worse for you. If you find yourself squinting way too much and you get eye fatigue, why not do the graphical mods. It is not multiplayer, you are not taking away anyone else's game experience, so why not.

How far do you travel at start? I am curious to hear the answers. Because, when I try to travel a long distance at the start I always seem to lack food and can not really get the characters on their feet again. How far do you travel first starting out?

Re: How far do you travel at start?
With regards to your situation ("when I try to travel a long distance at the start I always seem to lack food"): personally I have had the same problem before when I did not test and know the limits but after testing it (a lot), now for me it is really hard to fully starve in this game. To actually starve you need to plan the starvation pretty well (start at worst season, drop your gear, intentionally not create any new gear etc.)

Yeah it is usually pretty tough to die what I meant was that the characters get to a point where it is mostly a chore to get them full again. If I start getting starvation penalties, it seems to go downhill a little and become annoying to do skill check tasks.


Usually I don't have too much trouble with food, but I think that's partly because I like to build characters with good eyesight who can get a bird or squirrel with a good throw of a rock.

My character's attributes are also on the hunter side. It seems from both of your answers that it is manageable, if I just have to plan ahead and go logical distances in a day, it is likely I guess.

Sometimes not at all. I start my toons in Spring and need to get some firewood, shelter et cetera for the possibly lethally frigid nights.

This has been the path most of my successful characters took. I decided to be a nomad but I always messed up the resource management side while moving, and I thought maybe I needed to gather up some food before travelling. Maybe a good hunter can pull it off.

Re: Is trading for food the easy way out?
My experience fishing amounted to something I named "The Javelin Trap" in which I slowly starved to death while catching just enough fish to keep active fishing, not ideal haha.

Yep that is exactly my first moments with fishing as well ;D I mostly try to turn it around by trying to fish not more than twice in a day and try to find some village to ideally trade for some nets or fishing rods. But yeah, spear fishing is definitely not a way you can thrive with hehe.
