Yay!
I actually managed to survive to day 5 with your tips already!
Sugar is a real ass-saver here I even survived the wolf attack because I built near water
Free skins and some good food!


Also, pretty much all the plants I needed to survive literally spawned next to my camp after a few days - cotton, bamboo, starch. It's great. There is also a berry bush, so I'll be plating the berries down.

Getting my forge heated up soon, and gonna try to forge some iron tools, uh- Speaking of which. How do I plant things when I placed the stake down?
Do I need a hoe?

Tysm btw! Enjoying the mod so much!

Congrates!

If a hoe is required you will get a message. Some larger plants and trees need the hoe to enable planting yes...but not smaller food crops, herbs, or medicine plants..

1. Assign the crop stake to hotkey 1
2. Assign the seed to hotkey 2
3. Scroll the mouse to the crop stake in hand and place it.
4. Scroll the mouse to the seed in hand and use it on the stake.

repeat 3 n 4.

if you made multiple stakes, just place all the stakes, then switch to the seed in hand and plant one at each stake.

Also, assigning tools and weapons to hotkeys helps...and scroll your mouse wheel to switch them in hand. Put the item in hand and hit a # key to assign it to that scroll position.

Uuuugh...
Speaking of health bars.

I well- I kinda managed to survive for almost 10 days now. But at the end of day 9... My blood level is dangerously low, and I accidently broke what I believe to be all of my heal herb plants, while trying to harvest them.

Do you recommend any way of raising my blood levels relatively quickly, that's sort of accessible early on?

I just hope it isn't related to the pirate... He was around on day 2, but I couldn't be bothered looking for him to trade since I was kinda busy... Y'know... Surviving.

Just as a side note, I got a relatively large supply of meat, and some eggs, if that could help.

Appreciate all the help.

Well, some food item do give small amounts of blood regen, like honey, and a few other very nutritious foods. The red bar will be on the icon in your inventory, if that item increases blood regen.

Blood increases naturally over time, but is very very slow. Not taking small damage will help it fill up quicker.

You can eat heal herbs for a smaller boost without penalize your OSR score. Only drinking heal potions giving a significantly larger boost negatively affects OSR.

The Herbal Garden is a huge milestone in the game. If ya build 2 of them asap, you will be growing heal herbs daily. Try to eat them, vs drinking heal potions if your wanting a better OSR score. Unlocked through farming and building farming equipment.

When you sleep...some things affect blood regen...like if there is a shelter, and/or bed near. Your low blood can be regen by sleeping longer and more often if you have those object near...but at the cost of losing valuable season "time". Winter is no joke. (see Diary Operations about objects)

Keep in mind, when sleeping, you wake up hungy and thirsty...so it requires more food and water to sleep a lot.

Just as important, by sleeping into the future, faster, other more difficult things are triggered in game...like "Hostile Animal Events" increase in frequency...but on the flip side, at level ups, you gain in abilities like speed and carry capacity and potentially unlock advanced buildings early.

p.s. The more advanced the object you sleep near, the more blood it regen. example; a primitive bed vs a hammock. A bed can also speed up healing wounds and fractures, "use" it when injured...also "tiered" like other objects.

Whoa, I think the OSR score penalty for drinking a potion or antidote is rather harsh for someone trying to survive, while also planning on getting a decent score at the end of their run - But quite frankly, I do not care about the score, I am here just to have fun!

I also just wish that the god damn bloody pirate wasn't spawning in a rock

Anyways, which level of farming do I even need for the herbal garden, and will it grow herbs at random? Or do I need to somehow seed it...
