Subnautica
« on: February 05, 2018, 03:12:12 AM »
So is anyone else playing this?  I can't remember the last time a game sucked me this deeply into it.  I just pull part most of my base in favor of building a new deepwater home base.  It's pretty amazing.

I've been playing it for a year or so. Loving it!

However, I'm mostly using it as a sandbox, playing on Freedom mode rather than on Survival, and cheating (once I've found the first instance of a material, I use the console for extra copies). Basically, it's an architectural game. ;)

I on the other hand played it for the story, discovery, and survival aspects.  And it's a good, solid story. I honestly have no interest in building something just to build it.

I'm surprise you don't just used Creative Mode, which lets you build anything without using materials, although that mode might be a new one.

Oh, I certainly play for the discovery and story too (which isn't available in Creative mode), and I do want a bit of challenge.

Basically I'm trying to optimize the experience for the aspects I enjoy by reducing what I feel are just repetitive busboy chores and by occupying the lulls in the progression of the story. As I advanced in the game, there were often long periods where I didn't have the impression of discovering anything; mind you, it was in part because the story wasn't completed until just before the official release.
