AtomicUs5000 Posted January 10, 2019 Share Posted January 10, 2019 I've only played through one very long 120 minute day, but it was a nice one. It was nice starting off with a full stomach. I didn't feel rushed to get through the starter quests. Stamina wasn't a chore to maintain, but was still dropping low enough for it to be a good struggle for a day one character. A good number of zombies coming at me on the first day. I'm getting a reasonable amount of XP doing all sorts of stuff, not just killing the zeds. I usually find about 20 to 30 cooking pots the first day, but this time I only found one which was perfect. I don't know if any changes were made in that regard or if it was just the luck of the draw for this game. Hydration won't be an issue at all since I already have about 60 jars. I collected about 120 meat and made about a dozen bacon and eggs, a dozen red tea, 2 goldenrod tea, and about 20 tallow at night. Still plenty of meat to spare because I couldn't find many eggs. Birds nests were abundant, but they weren't every 5 steps like they have been... which is a good thing. Was this even changed? I also already found nerdy glasses and a pair of shades. I am pretty set with a pistol, shotgun, compound bow, reinforced club with a metal spikes mod, steel shovel, and a slightly damaged level 2 pickaxe. I'm fully dressed with decent clothing, crafted 9 bandages, found a couple acid and honey already. Not sure if any changes were made to random gen. Biomes still have poor transition, but I did come across a small lake connected to a small river--not as big as the A16 bodies, but bigger than what I have seen in A17 so far. Again, this is probably just the luck of draw though. I quickly scouted a city. No skyscraper, but seemed to have a nicer variety of POIs. This city btw looks really nice. It's not like a big square, but like a long rectangle that sits in a valley between 2 impressive mountain ranges. Looks great. Normally by now in the game I have a small hut built and I am digging my way down to bedrock, but I got slowed down in a couple of the newer cabin POIs. So, I am just staying in that 3-story cabin with the goods in the hidden attic. So, I wasn't sweating bullets my first day in 17.1, but I wasn't aggravated at all. I guess the only thing that gave me some frustration so far was the occasional double swing problem. Can't wait for that to go away. I can feel at times where the frame rate might start to stutter, but overall seems to happen less often or happens with less impact than it did previously. Again, could be just luck... not sure if any changes were made to improve that issue either. Anyway, can't wait to move on to day 2, but unlike my character, I do need to sleep.
