Psychodabble Posted February 11, 2018 Share Posted February 11, 2018 One of my finest ever Dead is Dead playthroughs came to an unfortunate end about a week ago. After taking my time to mourn, I figured I'd post a little photo tour of some of the things I accomplished in my 88 days of life before I go on to my next run. Some preliminary info on my settings - all default settings EXCEPT: Daylight length 16 --- This is basically the old default, I find the new default days too long. Loot Respawn Disabled --- I hate magically reappearing loot and searching the same places again and again. Exploration FTW! Blood Moon 16 --- As far as I can go without bad performance dip. Air Drops 7 days & marked --- The orange smoke is only visible on ~1/5th of drops for me, so this keeps me sane. THE SEED: Empire A truly glorious seed, maybe the best RWG I've ever seen. As the screenshot shows, you've got every biome you can imagine all tightly packed around a cute little town featuring a skyscraper, motel, construction site, church, couple of fire stations, and most importantly, a bunker. There are also 9-10 traders scattered around in relatively close proximity - one in the desert just outside of town, the rest arranged in a loose circle that you can hit all in one day with a decent minibike. The seed really has everything you could want in a seed and I would highly recommend it to anyone. As you can probably guess, I spawned in the desert and set up shop in the bunker on the edge of town, slowly modifiying it to fit my needs. There my main crafting and storage areas with additional cement forges off in the corner. What's up that ladder, you ask? This was my first defense installation...please excuse the mess, I haven't had the chance to clean up, being dead and all. It's a pretty basic pillar 50 battlebox surrounded by electric wire and spikes. Basic until I discovered the utter joy of blade traps, that is. The screenshots don't really do justice to the sight of two rows of blade traps in glorious, bloody motion. This defense worked perfectly, but I spent most of my time up on the catwalks repairing the blades rather than actually fighting the horde. I wanted something a little more hands on, which brings us to structure number two. I'm sure you're all familiar with the quaint little well that serves as entrance to the bunker POI. It wasn't really me, so I hacked it up and made this armored ladder entrance which goes down to the bunker and up to this catwalk... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
