does the game try to anticipate what you need and give it to you?

Recommended Posts

I was looking all over the place for a cement mixer. I looted just enough cement mix to start work on my horde base and had a devil of a time finding one. I know, I couldn't find it because I was looking for it. Don't have this problem when I'm not looking for it.

 

The traider had one for sale. It took almost all of my money but I got it. Was this just coincidence?

Yes. There is no code for increasing the probability of finding something the more you search and fail to find it.

Yeah, it's a coincidence. If the game would give you what you need it would give me a Q6 auger and a helmet with a headlight in the first container I loot. :)

I feel better because I had no idea how it could figure out I was looking for a cement mixer.

It is the next stage of game code evolution. As long as you are wearing headphones the game can read your mind.

My experience has been that the game anticipates what you want and makes sure you DON'T find it.

I've experienced both - finding exactly what I want and totally never finding it. For example the recipe for potato seeds! I just eventually had a full garden from looting the actual seeds - which took many in-game weeks - before I got the recipie which was by then mostly redundant.

 

But on this topic I had such a good chuckle at this person's video of when he found a bunch of things she wanted all on the same day

Happened to me, in a way. I had one game where i couldnt find a beaker, for the life of me. I have 30 hours so far on this one, and i still didnt find that damn beaker, nor did i find a functional chem station (that isnt 62,4 km from my hideout).

 

On another game i started recently, i swear im finding a beaker every time im on a loot run. Every freaking time. I have a dozen of them or +, i think? It crossed my mind that i could throw them at horde zombies and pass through the night safe and sound. I barely have 10-12 hours on this save. ??‍♂️
