Subnautica Discussion thread (Please move to Gameplay Forum)

Recommended Posts

A thread for general discussion of the game Subnautica for the PC, PS4, and XBOX ONE and our experiences playing it as well as to leave help for  each other and for Phil in his own run in the future on stream!

 

DOn't know a topic to start with, but at least this thread can begin?

I think the game is perfect for chill streams, but that Phil plays it wrong. He goes out for one ore piece, then comes back with one ore piece, doesn't bother to pick up more stuff on the way. His inventory is all over he place.

The game isn't much different than Minecraft. Stressful shit happened to him and can happen in Minecraft too.

He's stressing too much about resources, building and progressing. But forgets that just like Minecraft there's really nothing to progress to. You just mine to build a new thing that lets you mine more or in a different way (farming).

Just swim around and gather resources. And when you have enough, build your new shiny thing that lets you grind more. Don't stress about building a new thing and not having one ore to do it, you can always build it later. Just like Minecraft you are not progressing to anything too interesting, no need to stress yourself over grinding and resources.

Swim around and enjoy the scenery.

@Phil is still stressing too much about progress in a game where there's nothing to progress to, like Minecraft. He should follow his own words: RELAX:excl: There's a reason people suggested it for CHILL streams. He hates resource gathering in a game that's all about resource gathering. Maybe he should ... try gathering resources. :ohmy:

He never used the scanner room once to scan for materials. This is the problem of being too dependent on chat and then they don't tell you something important.

For games like this (Subnautica, Minecraft) you are supposed to look at guides, tutorials, wiki, if you are lost. Or experiment with things. Chat will only tell you so much. It's called the scanner room that sounds like it could be helpful.

Phil never reads these lmao

He seems to freak out constantly at the thought of having to go find materials, mostly because he doesn't know how to use a scanner room. He ended the last stream because he needed to find table coral, which is literally everywhere right outside his base just like mushrooms. You don't have to hunt for materials and craft all the time, you literally have tons of areas you haven't explored...took multiple streams before he even visited the starship. Go explore more biomes, visit the grand reef, explore the caves on the island, fight a reaper with your bare hands, I dunno.

Someone in chat finally told him to use the scanner. Next stream he might finally use it.

Spoiler

can't blame Phil for not coming to the forum

Well, the game doesn't explain itself very well. If he's streaming, probably safe to assume he can't be ploughing Youtube on his phone the whole time huh?

There's a giant display, which he already used. There's google and wiki. The game has a built in wiki: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rEJI23S75lE

it's a game about learning and exploration.
