Re: How did you discover UnReal World? -- 10 choice poll Well, let's see. Wow.

It's been on my Steam wishlist for half of forever. I discovered it on Steam at some point, wishlisted it and then downloaded the free version of the game a long time ago (I know this because I found it sitting on my hard drive yesterday). For some reason I never got around to playing it. So the game went on sale on Steam but I'm  holding off because I'm in between paydays, so I re-downloaded and reinstalled the free version and just started playing it yesterday.

I have mixed feelings.

Of course as a newbie I had to take it slow and learn things, so I wound up spending most of yesterday working my way through the "Easy Power Start" guide on Steam. I was about 3/4 of the way through that (had most of the decent tools I needed to start working efficiently) when I returned to one of my shelters only to be robbed and left for dead by a bunch of bandits.

So, back to no weapons and barely any tools (they even took the pig I started the game with!) and with the added fun of having to drop most of my stuff just so I could limp around and try to recoup. I was definitely feeling the pain of having about half a days' worth of gaming sucked down the drain. I know, I know, most of you power players and master survivalists probably have a fully furnished base somewhere with about three sets of tools you can grab 'just in case', but I wasn't there yet.

I almost abandoned my effort and just started a new game on the spot. Almost. For some reason, I kept playing. It was probably morbid curiosity, some vague desire to see exactly how grim would be the end of my first character. I didn't see how she could possibly keep going after that catastrophe. But she did.

She went on to recover from all of her wounds, discovering several more Driikalis villages in the process. She survived to complete the basic course and is about to finish her survey of the Driikalis territory now. She doesn't have all of her best tools back yet, but I managed to locate a village that sells most of them and other than that I'd say she is well recovered from the bandit takeover of her shelter. She even has a dog now. 8)

I wouldn't necessarily say that I discovered UnReal World. It almost seems rather that UnReal World discovered me.

Re: Building a Shelter: The Location Must Be an Open Area and Free of Obstacles I can craft boards, but got the same message when I tried the kota. It looked like it was going to let me build both on the tile near the settlement, but I'd really like it to be closer to the water and when I moved back to that tile it went back to complaining about open areas and obstacles again.
