S2 EP1 - Hard Survival Mode, Here We Come! (v0.69) | The Forest

696 ratings | 23111 views
First episode of the new season, tackling hard survival mode. I'll show you how to start gaining strength STRAIGHT AWAY. I also go everywhere looking for rabbits, it sucks! Gaining strength straight away: * Only eat one plane meal * Get meat straight away * Start cutting down trees immediately * Strength will start rising after 6 * Aim for 13 on your first day, 5 each day after. * Eat 2-3 meats per day, use berries for hydration I strive to release videos daily for The Forest. My focus is give the information you need as quick as possible so you can get back to playing. Subscribe to see these videos daily and like if you can, it helps me out a lot. I have a public discord server, feel free to join and chat: https://discord.gg/HuSSahh I use Imgur to post some of the pictures from my videos, you may find this helpful. https://farket8238.imgur.com/ I often use https://theforestmap.com/ for my videos.

@Farket having played a lot of hard survival, do you find the amount and drastically raised HP of enemies turns combat tedious? It seems like such a big jump from normal (quite easy) to hard (even basic enemies feels like you are chopping down trees and fire does nothing anymore). I'm torn between the two. I'm not sure if the game being too easy or tediousness will be harder to cope with in the long run (is it true that you canchange mode mid-game with cheatmenu? I'll have to check that out). Really wish that there was some sort of middle-ground though - or just that harder difficulties focused more on making the enemies hit harder and be more aggressive rather than becoming damage-sponges. There isn't any difficulty mods yet are there? I had a quick look but couldn't see anything like that. Anyway, great videos. I learned a lot from your tutorial/science vids and now I look forward to checking out your let's play :)

Wait, you can one shot Canibals with a Rock, when they are asleep? or does this work in general?? giving those guys about 20 slices with the Katana and they just laugh at me.
Farket (3 months ago)
+Julian Dwuletzki Its called a stealth attack. You need to remain undetected and hit them. Usually an instant kill.

i honestly regret starting this game mode im on day 24 and it is not easy getting equipment
Jean-Luc Alexander (4 months ago)
Question(s): after 24hrs in game does your tree count go back to zero, or does it go -/+? Meaning if I f#&ked up and cut 4 trees one day, does that mean the next I have to cut enough to make up for it? Or counter to that, if I cut 13 on day 6 instead of 8, does that carry over? I ask because at about day 9 I noticed my weight and strength on a massive downfall. It's like day 13 now on my current play through and I'm still dropping in weight and strength. The only time I let my player gain hunger is if he wakes up hungry. Otherwise he's eating large meat sources just before hunger flashing. I cut 13 trees day one and 8-10 after. I messed up once on day 6 though and over cut trees and got hungry longer than I'd like. But I've made sure to be consistent since and still seeing both drop rapidly. I'm back to 20.6 strength and it's confusing the hell out of me.

"Wait, I've not even left the plane yet!" made me lol Great as always mate, don't think I'm brave enough to attempt Hard Survival yet, only played normal mode so far! But next play through I'm def. gonna ramp things up a bit :)
Farket (5 months ago)
+James Russell It’s not too hard, it’s more adjusting to the difference. You become more conservative about resources, especially meat, water and booze. You’ll do fine.

Complex (5 months ago)
Hi from Canada! You should try a modded playthrough that makes things even *HARDER* like increased mutant spawns and slower growing times, stuff like that. Modding in this game has tons of potential you should try it man.
Farket (5 months ago)
+Complex I should look into that. Wouldn’t mind cranking it up a bit. Cheers.

what would you say is the best place to build base? Im already at day 35 and I havent had a proper base yet simply because after a few days of logging I get simply swarmed by lots of cannibals, who prevents me from doing my work. Any ideas?

Holyhallie (5 months ago)
yea just start hard survival mode to, the critters are scarce for sure, built on the cliffs above the fertile land and there has only been one raccoon.
Farket (5 months ago)
+Holyhallie WOW that sucks. It is much more scarce isn’t it. Turtles aren’t too far away, might be a good idea to stock up on them.
Devin Davis (5 months ago)
Fuck yeah for a new season! I don't know what it is but I can't play the forest anymore without serious FPS drop. No idea what's different? I used to be able to run maxed settings with max fps, now it doesn't matter what settings I use, I get serious fps spikes. I'm not going to bother playing the game at 20 fps.
Farket (5 months ago)
+Devin Davis Cheers. Try verifying the games cache within steam.

yea, hi, you can adjust your view mode in options, from original to several different types of view, this will make it much easier to see at night.

Your video is awesome. The way you skip unnecessary scene in survival game... I have never seen before in other gamers vlog. Absolutely creative.

ThatGuyNamedJosh (5 months ago)
OK, ive got 2 ideas/challenges for the new hard survival. 1 don't move your base just build there, it would be far more exiting :) 2: try to get the modern bow since its the hardest weapon to get. good luck
Farket (5 months ago)
+ThatGuyNamedJosh Cheers, I will be getting the modern bow soon I think.

Scriy (5 months ago)
The Intro was just too good, wait i didn't even left the plaine jet.. The big open field with the Effigies, is a place where 2 different canibal tribes are fighting over, they build effigies there to mark theier theretory. So 2 triebs claim that part of the map as theier own thats why they build that many effigies there. I don't know if you saw under the last video my comment about the Sanity stat, could be helpfull for the research you said you are doing. Anyway, keep the series i really enjoy your videos and the way you make them, you should have ways more people to watch your videos because it is entertaining, funny but serious at the same time. Stay awesome cloth meister! :D
Scriy (5 months ago)
Those are spawn effigies, that means there has to be a tribe close to or a cave, so the Village is close, and probably some skinnys(?). I am not 100% sure what other tribe is with on that Field, but i am pretty sure that there are 2 triebs or even more. And when the new tribe with the masks on theier head came into the Game, it was not that rare to saw them fighting in that Area another Tribe, it's like they where try'in to scare them off, but that was fixed in the new update because it was a bug that the Tribes where fighting, so probably thats why, but as i said i am not 100% sure about it. It's the only Way i can explain it. Btw great work on Offical The Forest. I was looking up some stuff for the last acivement i needed, the Plane one because i am missing 1 last, and all i saw was from you created so, really good job on that!
Farket (5 months ago)
+Scriy Oh true? How did you find that out? I think I recall. I get lots of comments and I reply to them all. Yeah I don’t know much about other platforms or advertising. I focus on the quality. Cheers.

+Mika DJ lol so true!
Telmo Silva (5 months ago)
Good meat, meat is good for you, good for your heart, good for your strength. Good meat hardy har har. Was really surprised at the rarity of animals, seems turtle meat will be your best friend. I did notice the few rabbits you find are in cannibal villages. Good luck on this new series.
Farket (5 months ago)
+Telmo Silva Yeah it was surprising to me too. Have to experience it to believe it it’s that bad. Turtles are good for sure.

Can you tell me how to change the resolution in order to see at night time?
ekly sek (5 months ago)
Farket oh well thanks I'm just curious about it.
Farket (5 months ago)
+ekly sek It’s post video editing. Otherwise you wouldn’t be able to see what I’m doing. Other than that I use blockbuster. It’s much harder to see when I’m playing.
ekly sek (5 months ago)
In my setting doesn't see the color grading.

thanks for the upload. Question. do you find your self feeling like you need a rest from the game, or is it a game you could play continuously?
Farket (5 months ago)
+Lamonaise Definitely rest. Playing this game and making videos on it can make it feel like work. I’m trying to find a balance.
Jesus Christ (5 months ago)
What do you think, can you depopulate the island from cannibals? I build my base up there on the cliff, on the spot you call fertile land. I didn´t want the cannibals to annoy me at night, so I was murdering them for few days in the area. And after few days and since then - cannibals are nowhere to be found. I wonder if that´s bug, related to the particular area, or you can just remove cannibals from your island, manually
Jesus Christ (5 months ago)
I though so. And - call me Jeez
Farket (5 months ago)
+Jesus Christ Not a bug my lord. You aren’t building on a patrol route so they aren’t coming by. They were probably designated attacks. You can’t wipe them from the game, they keep respawning. Cheers
Josh Pollock (5 months ago)
It's remarkable how much more precious the animals are in this mode. I never bothered chasing animals or cared when it rained. Now I actually find cover in rain and chase animals to hell and back. Love the series and happy to know I'm not the only one noticing the difference!
Farket (5 months ago)
+Josh Pollock Lol so true. They have done well with the survival element.

Farket (5 months ago)
+A Potent Magic I’m French so I pronounce things more fancy.
Dante Tirado (5 months ago)
Food spoiling rate is one thing the devs need to revert for this mode. I believe fresh meat fills you more than edible now so its best to put fresh meat on a drying rack as soon as possible. But meat spoils so quickly now that sometimes you have to sprint back to camp after killing 1 or 2 animals to keep it fresh. They still have to nerf turtle spawns because they are an easy source of meat and birds need to fly away faster, forcing you to hunt them with small rocks and arrows. Also when playing with no hud item count and descriptions don't show when hovering over something in your inventory, will make it hard to see exactly how much of a certain item you have.
Farket (5 months ago)
+Dante Tirado yeah I noticed that about the turtles. Yeah I learned that quick about the hud lol.

your challenge now should be to conquer the whole forest, just chop down all trees, trap all cannibals, remove any land obstacle from your way this way you didn't crash into the forest, the forest crashed into you
Farket (5 months ago)
+m Stortz Hahaha epic comment. I don’t think the game couldn’t handle it very well. Would start crashing a lot.

Nik Man (5 months ago)
I have played hard survival for several days now and i can say don't hope for rabbit and deer around the corner, use your red paint as much as possible and i don't understand why you turn off regrowing trees.I understand to make it hard but It is natural for trees to regrow. I found easy way to get meat, so many sea turtles :) BTW great job on this video almost forgot to write, keep it going.
Nik Man (5 months ago)
Farket Can't wait for the second episode, I agree with eclipse maybe every 10 days you turn on.
Farket (5 months ago)
+eclipse I will see how I go, my log catcher idea should help a lot.
Farket (5 months ago)
+Nik Man Yeah I’ve definitely learned that lol. Tree regrowing is for realism sakes. Trying something new.
eclipse (5 months ago)
Takes longer then one night to fully re-grow 10% trees lol. Its more for realism then difficulty i think. Maybe set up rules like only have tree regrow on once every 10 days.

If you put the pot on a camp fire (even if it's empty) it will give you fresh clean water to drink.

I wish there was a Normal Survival mode. I just cannot handle the Hard mode cannibals but I sure would like to experience the harsher survival challenges.

+Brady Hight That’s a good point. They should have one for normal. Enemies hurt so much more in hard. Definitely the hardest aspect of it.
