  1. I went to the ant hill , made a lure trap and put spikes in front of it. Then shot gas arrows in the groups. Maxed out the mutation very fast.
  2. I have jerky rack. Never bothered to make any as 4 acorns keep hunger away for a day. I'll have to try it. As you mentioned, jerky comes later in the game. By that time players should have canteens, dew collectors and maybe water storage. No need to purify water or drink dirty water then eat. I'm just saying beginning players can eat food to offset the negative of drinking dirty water. Dirty water can be found everywhere. Acorn nuts can be found very early in game. Using this system means no need to purify the water (unless it gave a buff or fully filled thirst in 1 slurp) Truth is I still drink dirty water then eat even tho I have canteen+ made and filled. It's just easier and less effort on survival.
  3. I did read the patch notes . I know the mentioned stuff like birds, mutations, new quests, footprints, cookies and water fleas. I found totem recipe for ant head on a stick. I don't believe I read about it. Anyone find anything?
  4. Yes please. Should not have to look online to find out what they do. Buff lungs vs cardio fan vs natural explorer.... kudos to anyone who just knew what the different effects were just by reading the vague wording. Ant-nihilator supposedly gives attack AND defense buff at max rank against ants. How does the description make this obvious ? The stories behind mutations is nice. Just add a line stating exactly what each does and by how much. I don't even know if mutation buffs stack with armor buffs like Aphid shoes, the feather hat or the leaf eyepatch.
  5. ?huh The same things you do during the day can be done at night. It's just harder to see. I guess it is meant to add a fear factor even though many bugs are sleeping. I adjusted my videos settings so it's no longer pitch black. I can see without using a torch unless in a cave. Maybe they'll add glow bugs or things you can only see/ be done at night. Maybe night vision or night sight mutation as well.
  6. Yup. This is really needed. You know what I do? Set a death respawn point and die after exploring in order to fast travel back. I have multiple stash boxes in multiple locations full of multiple sets of armor, weapons, food, crafting items and workbenches. Plus backpack loot marks my last location without building a marker. If anything let me build fast travel points using high tier materials and maybe able to set a maximum of 5. Let's be honest, using a pair of aphid shoes allows players to avoid all enemies and danger. So why make us run from Oak tree after receiving mission to the hedges for blueberries to complete mission? Then run back to oak tree to turn it in? The survival should be in harvesting the berries while enemies roam around you. Just running between areas you've visited 40 times gets boring fast. Also, if I kill too many bugs and my next quest is "hunter" for that bug type I have to wait about 2 in game days or more before they respawn. So I'm better off not killing anything unnecessarily and just running through yard to the objective. It's kinda dumb.
  7. If there's food in storage or on the ground, ants will try to get at it. Or if you have a bug lure built. I've only seen angry spiders destroy base structures. Mites cannot. Not sure what other bugs can destroy base structures.
  8. Anyone that is familiar with survival games will have everything they need in under 4 hours of gameplay. Pick up everything you can. Make weapons, kill bugs, make canteen. All of that is in the starting area. Find a juice box and collect. Just before sunrise, much of the grass has dew drops of water. You on the forum, may as well use Google. Also, if you really having trouble, you can drink dirty water. It just makes you gain hunger. Fill up on dirty water, wait till the immediate hunger loss over time stops then eat food. Voila, both bars full. So technically you only need to carry/find food. I keep Acorn bits because they stack, 4 fills you up and they never spoil. Mushrooms are easy to find and also never spoil. I built 3 dew collectors across the map and water storage. Yet I don't need to use them. Acorns are all you need. Carry about 10-20 and you'll be great
  9. Sure, if they implement rare meats. Right now, bugs are in abundance. Not hard to get the meat you want.
  10. Not sure if forum allows links to YouTube but if you Google search "grounded next updates" or "grounded koi armor" you should find a few that contain the shield. Apparently you don't block with it. It just reduces damage recieved from blocking.
  11. I mean, they haven't explained anything yet. My backyard does not have anthills sticking above the grass or juice boxes and cans everywhere. No lady bugs or beetles. It is full of slugs, worms (neither in game but usually in all backyards) and spiders. Just have to wait and see.
  12. Lots of issues when playing multiplayer. I played solo and had no problems beyond some items not respawning. I fell off map. Backpack respawned near the suitcase at the start point. Otherwise, I would not be able to retrieve items.
  13. Dirty water. Eat mushrooms, hotdogs or apples to remove hunger gained from drinking dirty water. Not seeing them rush a patch to fix this.
  14. It gets easier when you craft and wear armor. Start with acorn armor maybe. Then make lady bug armor. Weavers won't deal much damage but wolf's will still kill you quickly. When you get a spider bow or mint hammer, spiders are easier to deal with.
  15. Oh. It does have a marker for cutting. Maybe it's for items coming later in the updates. Maybe it's just to be seen.
  16. Does it matter what stage it is in? It's incomplete. Enough said. In this new age of games, many have content that has been incomplete for years whether it's called "alpha" or "beta".
  17. The game has to announce background of stink bugs for it to be ok? The home owners could be Asian bug collectors. If they changed the stink bug color It would then be ok?
  18. Exactly. One genre. A single survival game doesn't contain EVERY thing you listed. Those features are spread between various games. Actually survival game players won't bother playing a game that consists of kids in a backyard. Even the game rating is for teens. They were not playing decades old hardcore survival at 5 years old. It's ok that games don't adhere to the same standards of the late 1990s to early 2000s. They are supposed to be more inclusive. It's ok for games to be fun the way Grounded is so far. The game is basically still in alpha, not even beta. It's like 20% of the game. I've played many games where menus , abilities, items greatly change. You have no idea of what "core" features will be changed in coming updates. They haven't even released a story yet. Lmao.
  19. I've cut down a singles "weed" a got 24 pieces. Some items for me have not respawned. Berries should be edible. But it's not a full game. I'm sure these issues will at least be addressed in the future.
  20. Yup. Had to get incredibly close to knock berries down with bow. But you can get many doing it this way.
  21. Nope. No way to do it yet without cheese. Not enough armor, not enough agility, not enough damage output. I've killed plenty but without terrain trapping and a bow, you're dead. I even tried hiding in the lab and shooting through the door. Wolf spider jumped right in. I'm dead. Tried full acorn armor, full lady bug armor, full spider armor spamming smoothies and bandages. Wolf spiders are just to fast and strong to melee battle. And if you hit with arrow on ground face to face, they run and heal.
  22. This is not a Resident Evil mixed with hardcore Diablo. Many newer games are eliminating the "one life" feature. The player base will not continue to play a game where you have to start from 0/scratch upon death. Games in which players build bases for protection, the average player builds high up, underground or in the less dangerous starting area. Ask for a separate mode. One where you get one life and all bugs can climb to the highest points. Where they spot you from 100cm away. Let you try and survive 3 wolf spiders with a pebble axe. Soon as you disengage, they regain fill health. Constantly destroying you camp and taking your stored items. Lmao. Everything you stated is like a mash up of features from 5 different games. Again, if any game had all the things you complain about, no one would play. OP ranting on a "game preview". Wait until the final product is released.
  23. My comment was on initially finding eggs. I have seen many worker ants in the hill. Doesn't the queen lay eggs? Haven't seen one of those. There are other items that are not respawning. Mint, quartzite and apple are a few that I have not seen to have respawned. It is a game preview. Issues are expected. It says that everytime the game starts.
