Subnautica

All but finished my second playthrough. This time it just took about 40 hours without rushing, due to higher efficiency on my behalf. I roughly remembered key locations and resources, but had to rediscover most of the minor locations.

I think the animals could have been more dangerous. For some reason they do more damage to your submarine than to your unprotected character, which doesn't make sense and makes the game unnecessarily easy.

Most animals stay withing their designated area, but it is possible to change that in a couple of ways. One way is to disturb some monster fishes, which makes them resettle to a new areas. Another way is by raising fish from eggs in aquariums and release into the wild, with sometimes interesting results. Some creatures also change behavior during the plot progress.

The writing is refreshingly minimalistic (in this gaming era of pretentious plot writing to cover up mediocre gameplay). We don't get to know anything about the protagonist's past, even his name is only mentioned once (I forgot it right away). Subnautica also keeps the general lore on a basic but functional level, focusing more on gameplay. It does have a few silly parts, such as a badass female merc, but most of it is sensible.

Can't wait for Below Zero to come out of early access.

Amazing the video has 36,000+ views in less than 24 hours.

I did get killed by corals recently. I had swum under a tiny piece of wreckage to look for loot when 2-3 corals growing in there simultaneously started shooting darts at me. This took me by surprise, and due to the stress I couldn't find the (easy to see) way out before my health had dropped to zero. What an embarrassing demise.

Another time I got killed by a leech.

A while ago a major patch was released for Subnautica. I didn't notice any obvious improvements during my recent playthrough, instead I got new bugs. The most serious one (also confirmed by other players) makes your exosuit get stuck on the ground. If you save and restart the game, the exosuit will then bounce around like crazy, eventually breaking through the entire geometry. The solution seems to be to get out of the suit as soon as the game loads, which makes it calm down right away.

Another bug drains oxygen tanks while theyre in your inventory. When my primary tank has 30 seconds worth of oxygen left I normally switch to a backup, but often the backup tank isn't completely filled (as it should). Even worse, I sometimes forget about time and use up the backup tank too, but if I then desperately try to switch back to the primary tank and use those remaining 30 seconds, that tank it's suddenly empty as well.

Subnautica: Below Zero

https://unknownworlds.com/subnautica/subnautica-below-zero-price-increasing-on-pc-storefronts/

"Subnautica: Below Zero is getting closer than ever to being ready for launch. We are aiming to release 1.0 in the early part of 2021 – as some of you might have guessed from our Nintendo Switch announcement – but still have bug fixing, optimizing, and further fine-tuning to do before it’s ready for launch on all platforms.

With the release on the horizon, we will be increasing the price of Below Zero to $29.99 (USD) across all PC storefronts (Steam, Epic, Discord, Humble) on January 5th, 2021."

I think Subnautica and Subnautica: Below Zero: are both on my Steam Wishlist. You gave some favorable reviews on Subnautica. I guess if the price is going up on Subnautica: Below Zero, I won't be buying it for some time. I generally only buy Games on sale with deep discounts.

It will still be discounted until January 5th.

Not sure what it will be like, considering they fired the composer and replaced the writer. I guess time will tell.

---QUOTATION---

In Subnautica I just read that you can sleep to pass time while plants grow or batteries recharge. Sounds like cheating to me.

---END QUOTATION---



Why would that be cheating? If batteries are such an important and necessary resource, to go out exploring and doing things, wouldn't it make sense for both the Player and the batteries to "re-charge" over the passage of time? I mean what else would you do after you've eaten ( is there eating? ) gone over your gear or other processes. Do you just sit there and look out the window waiting?
