Thread: explore what?

    explore what?

    Hi,
    i get in yesterday the first time and choosed hunting and bonecrafting.
    I find out the general functions of skills by right cklicking and how to use the resource bar and gather some cloth, metal, leather... sort it out and collect what is usefull to craft something from my recipes list. I have to throw many materials away, because of lack storeage (i read the thread about it).
    As far as i know, there are no animals in yet, what means i cannot hunt, cannot craft (without Bones). I have no shovel, so i just can start building roads or logg trees. But what should i do with all this. I cannot build anything, i dont want to build roads or terraform something.
    What is it that i can do beside exploring the Area and cut trees.
    Is there something that i can do what makes sense?

    You wanna know what you can do?

    You can find bugs. That's what this stage of development is for, once the game launches you can complain about not having enough to do. But for the moment you create characters with skills you can use. and Test the game for bugs.

    Find bugs by doing what - run around with lack of informations about gamemechanics. Seems that i am doomed to create a new char with skills that are implemented and usefull atm

    I sympathise as I had a similar experience yesterday. My main problem though was 4 time outs in a limited period of play.

    Tooltips and basic UI/crafting guides are really needed as this seems the biggest hurdle to actually testing anything atm. I mean, how can I test a system if I don't know if it's enabled or how it's meant to work?

    They have a substantial update in the works. Sit tight. I believe it has some combat upgrades as well as animations tweaks. They will most likely enable another feature after that patch is rolled out and tested.

    Actually, new features wont be added until the server is at full stability, and any significantly troublesome bugs are gone, but they are getting close.

    And yes, you will need to create a character will skills that are functioning to test anything significant.

    Perhaps offering assistance instead of bashing Stundorn is the way to go. His question was valid, and since we are in the same tribe I know English is not his primary language. Don't try to read things which he didn't mean. I believe he just wants to know what skills to pick for testing which is a very valid question. Not all of the skills you can chose are able to be fully tested. Instead of spending in-game time trying to figure this out. He just wants to know ahead of time.

    Stundorn if you want to test teraforming you will need to recreate your character with teraforming as one of your primary skills. That is the only way you will receive a shovel in order to test it.

    I know you can test basketry now by collecting grass. As for all of the other skills. I'm sorry I don't have the answer. I know you can collect leather, cloth, and metal from junk piles. However, I'm not sure if all the tools are in for tailoring, leatherworking, and tool making. I haven't attempted to test those items yet.

    Other things that can be tested at this point. UI settings, graphics options, key bindings, and things of those nature. Try opening all your windows, clicking in bags, moving items around, going into all the menus. Do you crash doing any of these things. If so be sure to report it. I was able to replicate a crash on my system setting graphic options. I didn't crash until I clicked the exit button. I sent in logs from the log folder along with my dxdiag.

    Tailoring gives you the scissor and needle necessary to test it.

    just to point it out, this phase of a games development i more work than play. the game is not here for you to have a fulfilling playing experience.

    you are here to find the bugs glitches and other whathaveyou that could ruin the fulfilling playing experience that starts after the game is released to the public.


    so, while you are likely to try to test your favorite play type, it is more useful to remake your chair to use the features that are out now. it might not seem like it, but the skills who are out now are the fundamentals all the rest are built on, a bug here can ruin all the rest of the game, thats why we are trying to kill all the bugs now, before the game gets too complex to find the source of the bugs.


    be patient, and report EVERY little bug to the devs, that is the only reason you are playing
    Wtf
