hi,
I'm interested in trying out the random maps, but I can't seem to find any iron ore. I've generated several different maps and have scoured the island, but I don't find any iron ore outcroppings (like in the 1st adventure mission)


Iron spawns are declared in the following files by default:
random_01_endless_e
random_02_endless_n
random_03_endless_h

In any of the files above you can find 2 part, that determine the spawn.The following spoiler is the default version of random_02_endless_n.inf file (normal)
Check it for details!

Spoiler >


If you find the boldly marked row in any of the random_01/02/03... files, your generated map should contain some iron.

I hope my reply was useful!

Is there a way to script an object (lets say a rock or something) so that in 'x' number of days it disappears (or 'dies')?

this belongs to the scripting questions thread but thoug hhere is your answer:
write this into the script box of the specific object:
Code:
1
2
3
4
5
6
on:changeday {
     $day++;
     if($day==5) {
          free "self";
     }
}

to change the number of days after which the object shall be deleted just change the number 5 at the if command.

Hi there! First of all, i like your game very much! It is great and i wanna ask, if your game supports any of these display resolutions: 1920x1080, 1280x720 - generally any 16:9!

Thanks for reply

no, the game only supports 'normal' 3:4 resolutions.

you might try to open the file "settings.cfg" in the sys folder (use notepad or any other text editing tool) and edit the 2nd and 3rd line by writing the resolution of your screen there and then save. but I dont think this wil look very good, some graphics might be streched or out of place.

if this doesnt look good you can undo the resolution-change by just setting a fitting resolution in the ingame settings.

Hurri04, thank you very much, it worked and game looks fine! IMG:http://img529.imageshack.us/img529/3969/173901171010.th.jpg

And another question: is it possible to make the speed of filling character needs (starving, sleeping etc) slower or faster?

seems that you're lucky and the game doesnt look weird at your pc, I think usually this doesnt work very well
(maybe it's because of some specific drivers like the graphics card driver or the directX driver that the game still looks fine )

Strandedgamefan has written:

you can open the file "game.inf" in the sys folder and look for these lines:
Code:
1
2
3
4
exhaust_move=0.02,0.02,0.016
exhaust_swim=0.06,0.05,0.06
exhaust_jump=0.8,0.8,0.8
exhaust_attack=0.15,0.15,0.15

the needs are in the same order they are ingame: hunger, thirst, tiredness

Pearls: No, they just look pretty...

keep in mind, this is just for the original stranded II. Other mods sometimes make use of these for other reasons. I know my mod contains a Crushed Pearl Sword.

Starting out on the first island, and I've established a nice little base. The problem now is that I was relying mostly on fish from the fishing hole, where the little bubbles are rising. Just it seems that I've overfished it, because it no longer gives fish whenever I throw a line in.. This is normal?

no, usually you can fish at fishing-points forever and with the time your fishing skills will grow which means that you will have a higher change of catching fish and after a while you can catch fish anywhere you like.

I suggest creating a shovel and dig around on this island for a little bit to gather some insect parts or even better worms. then, when fishing, these will be used as baits automatically which also increases the chance to catch some fish.

I finally got off the first island, and it seems I over-prepared because the second and third were easy with the nice hoard I was carrying.

The fourth island is taking a while as I'm rebuilding and replenishing, but the real problem is that there must be a stray wheat field somewhere on the map. Planted 30 grains, and got a locust swarm. The real problem is not that I lost the grain, but I still see the occasional locust on the island and am afraid to replant..

Do locusts eventually die off on their own or do I need to sit around my field with a garden hose of Raid for a few days?
