Enemy Behavior & Patrol Routes - Part 1 | The Forest

595 ratings | 20209 views
This video is part of a series I am doing on cannibal and mutant patrol routes and their behavior. So far I have a lot of footage, over 8 hours. This video has about 2 hours compressed down. I am taking out the key points of the videos and speeding them up to make it more watchable. There will be a conclusion video which will provide everything, broken down into a neat fortmat I am actually not sure how to present these videos. Let me know if there is anything specific you would like to see. I am unsure how many parts I will do as of yet. Maybe 4 or 5 depending on feedback. I do plan to make a compilation of the key parts I find at the end. This is more of an update. Key part videos will include: Cannibals building effigies Cannibal infighting Cannibal Praying Cannibals dying for no reason and how the other cannibals react Behavior of the mutants Enemy changes as the days progress Etc I try 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. I have Twitter and Imgur Twitter: https://twitter.com/Farket_Forest?lang=en Imgur: https://farket8238.imgur.com/ I use Imgur to post some of the pictures from my videos, you may find this helpful. I often use https://theforestmap.com/ for my videos. Check it out, it's amazing. All thumbnails, photo shopping, video editing, and logo were designed/completed by me.

I am unlucky... Everytime I try to go on normal mode there are 1 or 2 villages nearby in the spawn point, like come on! Do this game really hate me? XD

do crocodiles attack natives?

that would be interesting, if natives fight with aggresive animals, not just with Eric LeBlanc

Farket can you do a vid on cannibal types an why they scream plz.
Farket (3 months ago)
+Caddis Its to attract other cannibals, a request for assistance.
XXXTentionCord (3 months ago)
Ok so I have like 3 family’s of cannibals at my base and they are not doing anything, but I have a shit ton of large effigies but idk if that has anything to do with it, please tell me what’s going on 😂(they just run around and I can walk up and stare them straight in the eye and they won’t do anything)
Farket (3 months ago)
+XXXTentionCord Sounds like a bug. They sound like they are in a disabled state. There’s a console command for analyzing cannibal behaviour. I cant remember its name. I put it on the wiki. It might help.
dado majsta (4 months ago)
this is one of the best recordings related to this game, thank you for your effort, I have long wondered if there is cannibal behavior, this game is the top, I'm sorry for my English.

I first would like to say I love your videos they have been a huge help for me and i also love how much time and detailed you have put into this game to share all this info with everyone thank you. So i got a video i just made where i was wearing the red paint and had 12 leather face guys praying/ standing around me and then a few seconds later three painted tribal people show up and start praying.i notice the sun was coming up and then out of no where a painted tribal person jump at me and back off and then they all stood up went crazy and starting attack as though the sunlight reviled that i'm not Mr.cross.I can uploaded it and share it with you if you want to check it for yourself.I thought this could be helpful information you could share with ppl or maybe test for yourself.
Farket (5 months ago)
Yeah I just watched the video. Join my discord, I wanted to ask you some questions. Cheers

Darth Trion2 (6 months ago)
I built in the middle of a patrol path. Should i move?
Farket (5 months ago)
+Darth Trion2 Up to you, if you can handle it then stay. Or you can try blocking their path off with a wall. Keep the wall pretty far away from your base, they wont attack it that way
DolanBoii (6 months ago)
Amazing video man, its really interesting i dont like to use cheats on anything on these kind of games but its great to know things like this, i've previously built a base on the land bridge unknowingly and this explains as to why we got attached almost none stop!!
Farket (6 months ago)
+Damre Yeah I am the same, though it allows making better videos as well as speeding up the process. The land bridge is intense, thats for sure.

Jose Nemburg (6 months ago)
I tried hitting sanity by 0% eating cannibals, and i notice enemies tend to spawn more around you, specially mutants... it doesn't make you a cannibal tho, (Myth Busted)... Also the screaming means they're communicating.
Farket (6 months ago)
+Jose Nemburg I went through every patch note, there isn't much to it. Its only auditory hallucinations. I dont think it spawns cannibals unless they added it without stating so.

shyhai tee (7 months ago)
Nice Video, i wonder how would day react if you build your own effigies in the place where they respawn or the place where they put their effigies on
Farket (7 months ago)
+shyhai tee Based on what I have learned so far, I dont think it will do anything special. I believe that their effigies expire after half a game day or so. Needs more testing. I will test it though. I am still not sure what their effigies actually do. I need to see once they are placed if any other cannibals comes to them. Cheers
Taura (7 months ago)
Anyone who loves The Forest will find this very interesting, thanks Farket.
Conson SaW (7 months ago)
7:40 in and I noticed, 2/3 times the cannibals were praying, after they were finished, a bird landed on your character's hand. There's a lot of info going around about how this is a warning sign of an incoming raid from cannibals, however I don't know if it's true or not. For me, it's mostly been true, every time a bird lands on my character's hand, a raid happens at my base minutes later.
Farket (7 months ago)
+Conson SaW I think you maybe right with this. I will have to test it. That is some awesome observation there. I never even noticed that.
Vince Valoroso (7 months ago)
Can you give us a copy of the map with the standard patrol routes on it? It would be really helpful. Thanks! You are amazing.
Matt Hurlburt (7 months ago)
a good idea i think would be to have a little note at the bottom of the video that has the version of the game at the time so we know how old it is. :)
Matt Hurlburt (7 months ago)
Farket o derp... Thats a good point
Farket (7 months ago)
+Matt Hurlburt I'll see what I can do. Video release date is a decent indicator. Cheers

Would it be possible if you could put a link of the map that you've created in the description? Completed or not, I would greatly appreciate it.

I started putting it in my new videos. Here it is: https://theforestmap.com/
Beshr (8 months ago)
Thank you for this great job, thing is if you build in some where they don't usually pass in the map they will find you eventually and come to you, then some patrols paths will be change and get random paths.
Alexander Elfpmek (7 months ago)
Farket my friend and I builded a base in the Nothern part of the map, and we hadnt seen one canabil yet there, but then we cut down 10-15 trees and they were all coming, i think on the first day there were like 4, then 0after that day we build a Tree house and there is begans, since then every day (4days in totall) there were fucking us up, every minute there was 1-8 it was so frustrating that we builded explosivs and blowed the hell outta them, but it wasnt enough ...
Beshr (8 months ago)
Farket btw.. canibals are the reason that makes this game good one, they are the most amusing part. i found out that when i tried the creative mode, i missed them although i thought they are the annoying part of this game before.
Farket (8 months ago)
+Beshr yeah that is true. They'll always find you eventually. I don't think random paths exist, from what I've seen so far. They would spawn with purpose to find you.
m.cab (8 months ago)
Great video as always farket! Here's a suggestion: Do a vid covering the different armor types one can gather, how to get and craft them, different effects and efficiency etc. Would be interesting for a lot of new and advanced players i think.
Farket (8 months ago)
+m.cab cheers. I might do a basic video on the stuff I know. There's too many things I don't know and I don't want to put misinformation out there. Mainly the effects of block with armour and the stealth mechanics. I do know a fair bit. I'll start working on it tomorrow. Cheers.
Stephan H (8 months ago)
me and my friends firts made our base on the hilll on the lake at the landbridge. i wanted to build a water base in that lake. but they where like no it is gonna be fine and after day 10 we started being attacked by canabals each day. if we wanted to bget wood we needed an escort of 2 because of the canibals. eventuali ourd landhous was destroyed, and i was almost done with all of my interior. and the guy that was against the water base the most was just building on my base like it was his idea to go on the water. we are still surviving on that plav=ce though the friend that hosted it is not really as much of a gamer anymore. (sorry for bad english)
Stephan H (8 months ago)
Farket 3 times
Stephan H (8 months ago)
Farket the land house was there thing all they did was delete my costum bout
Farket (8 months ago)
+Stephan H yeah that's a hard place to build. Sorry about your base getting destroyed. That would of been upsetting. Building in the water can be safe, cannibals and mutants drown unless it's bugged. I will provide a video soon of safe places to build. I don't want to say yet without knowing exactly. Your English is good. I understood that perfectly. Cheers.
Alex Armsy (8 months ago)
At ze land bridge. MEMORIES When 0.53 came out I made a brand new save on HardMode..First off, in 12 days I managed to build a nicely defend fort at the Crocodile Camp. I had about 30 bone baskets filled up..One more thing is that at night I stood and work and kill cannibals and shiet..Next, I built a little house at the LandBridge. When the 14th night came out; I knew I fucked up. So, I first off chopped a tree down. Then; an Armsy, Virginia and Cowman showed up. I managed to kill Em. After about 2 mins, 2 groups of blue Armsies where up the hill where I my log sled was. Then, about 4 more Cowmen show up; leaving me boned. Soon after that, EVEN MORE blue and simple mutants showed up. About 4 more Virginias and 6 more Armsies IN ONE GROUP. I had a total of 10 Cowmen. Literally, I got raped by 500 mutants...
Alex Armsy (7 months ago)
+Farket​ Yep. 0.53 was probably the WORST fucking time I had, especially that shortly after the mutant raid; my little brother installed viruses in my PC and I had to completely reset it. When I install steam and shit back, log into mah account and guess what. My account reseted as well. No friends no games Limited Account no nothing. Then I started to play the game For Free until 0.62 when I finally managed to purchase it back. Still I was pissed that I wasted a crap ton of money and my 2500 hours were gone (Why yes; I'm playing this game since 2014, 0.01).
Farket (8 months ago)
+Alex Armsy holy f**k. I've seen this type of stuff happen before so i know you're not lying. The land bridge sounds like it would hectic to build. In my findings, patrols come through their constantly. Actually just realised. Any point between 2 cannibal villages is dangerous. The land bridge is an exact point too, only one way for them to go.
Quin Balsan (8 months ago)
does the patrol route change if you build a base and the cannibals don't know that you are on the Island?
Alexander Elfpmek (7 months ago)
Farket i can confirm it, they are canabills spawning 500meters away from you, my friend builded a base and cut a few trees while i was watching if some canabills came, and then it happened, i was on a treehouse while canabills spawned right under my treehouse, they instantly were running to my friends house, and i said to his that there are some coming but they just sitting between us and screemed all the time, we wanted to sleep cus we would die, and then they attacked us to 12th, is was such a fuck
Farket (8 months ago)
+Quin Balsan they have standard patrol routes and I think they have ones that spawn just for you. They'll travel directly to your base. I'm still yet to confirm this 100%
Quin Balsan (8 months ago)
WARNING DON'T READ THIS SPOILER ALERT.maybe you can make a theory about the cannibals origin. And also a theorie about Virginia (or big mutants). because in the cave where you can find the rebreather is a sketch of Virginia and its at the camp of the priests.
Farket (8 months ago)
+Quin Balsan I'm not very educated on the story. There's some stuff at the ending but it's very loose. The issue is that I hate misinformation, it's why I started my channel. I would hate to spread ideas that were wrong. Even theories are hard. I dunno, I would like to but it would take lots of research. Cheers
Quin Balsan (8 months ago)
yes i finished the game but there is a sketch in a cave and that sketch was made before Sahara came. Thats why i'm asking this question
deks223 (8 months ago)
Have you finished the game?I dont want to spoil you anything,but in the end they kinda explain the mutants.
Levi Black (8 months ago)
It's great to learn anything more about their weird AI. I can't help but wonder how much the Observer Effect impacts this though. While you're technically invisible, they still head track your location as seen in the last few seconds where they stare at your floating body while in free cam. Thanks again for all the work you do.
Levi Black (8 months ago)
Neat. Can't wait for more.
Farket (8 months ago)
+Levi Black yeah the head tracking happened a bit at in this video because I was still learning distances. I was getting too close. I've stopped doing it now. However, it didn't affect them from what I've seen. They kept on the patrol path exactly. Cheers
Badja (8 months ago)
woah that's interesting
Badja (8 months ago)
Maybe you could do some kind of looting-route for the first day (such as get the map and then go to the modern axe cave etc)

+CrizzBizz Will do, I have some stuff already. Will post it up in the next video. Cheers, would appreciate that :)

Takashi Haruki (8 months ago)
Hi Farket and The Forest community. I have a question that has not been quite answered. The Question is what happens when you Sanity hits O% Is it not a thing in the game as of now?
Takashi Haruki (8 months ago)
My game also has been buggy lol, or maybe DUN DUN DUNNNN its the result of having 0% sanity. But what the bug is that i have invisible cannibals with masks on that my friends can see running around. Can't hurt me nor damage them, only my friends can. they alsi Scare the living daylights out of me bc you don't see them nor hear them come.
Farket (8 months ago)
+Takashi Haruki I am not 100% sure. I believe you start hearing cannibals even when they aren't there. Ive played with 0% sanity for about 30 days before. Didn't notice anything different.
Myon (8 months ago)
Nice work Farket. I read the other key part video ideas you have listed and they're all interesting. I'm pitching some ideas you may also be interested in presenting within this series: - effects of hostility on patrol routes and numbers - effects of being seen with red paint on patrol routes and numbers - does weather affect cannibals in any way? - how do cannibals interact with crocodiles? - does destroying the effigies they pray at have any effect? - do cannibals detect you only visually? - does deforestation(less trees or tree stumps) affect cannibals or cannibal routes? - do dead animals or dropped meat affect cannibal routes or behaviour? - can fires be used to model or distract cannibal patrols and how Looking forward to your next ones. Cheers.
Myon (8 months ago)
Farket another question popped up: can meat racks alter routes by themselves? Seeing as they are programmed to steal from them, they should provide reward to the ai and maybe you could avoid interference with it, as some sort of tribute :p Cheers
Farket (8 months ago)
+Myon Cheers :) - Its hard to tell their hostility. On day 4 or 5 a lot more cannibals started patrolling.I think towards the end of the series I might build a big base and see what happens. - I don't believe Red Paint will affect it but I can give it a go. I think i might test the red paint and hostility levels. - Weather has no affect from what I have seen, they act the same regardless. - Cannibals and crocodiles ignore each other. Cowmen can kill crocodiles and other animals though. - I am yet to destroy the effigies they worship though, that would be interesting. - Yeah they have to see you. Sound alerts them but that have to see you. Sometimes they are looking at me but their behaviour stays the same, usually when I go near them. - Deforestation and tree stump removal has no effect on their patrol routes. - Cannibals ignore dead animals. Dead cannibals will affect their routes, I will show that in one of the next videos. - Ill test the fires. That's a great idea. Thanks for putting in the effort to write out those questions, some really good ones in there I will check out. Cheers

Matthew Thompson (8 months ago)
Gday farket. With this will you eventually find the best spots on the map to build so you don't get attacked??
Matthew Thompson (8 months ago)
+Farket all I'm after is a place where I'm least likely to be raided by cannibals. Resource runs are easy enough to make but picking the right spot is difficult. I think I've found a good place where I've set up camp in my most recent game - I've only had cannibals when I've had a lit fire.
Farket (8 months ago)
+Matthew Thompson Hey, I am going to do it after I have done the patrol routes. Its too soon to you a safe spot, I might be wrong. If you let me know what's important to you, that will help when I make a video? Such as the type of resources nearby that you use a lot? Such as rabbits, sticks, deers, lizards etc?
Eknim (8 months ago)
you could also have removed all the trees with typing 'developermodeon' on the main menu and then pressing f1 to bring up the command window. then type 'cutdownalltrees'. you dont need any external programs for that its in the game files itself
Farket (8 months ago)
+Eknim yeah that's how I did it haha. Would take too long to do it other wise. Stump removal wasn't so easy though.
