My first run
« on: November 20, 2021, 10:49:37 AM »

So recently my 100th run ended (related: the seed GodAutogunPick has a garbage -10 mines) and i thought i'd share my first ever run. (Scoresheet attached)
I also want to make a single "mistake log" in which i would recount mistakes in every run past the 100th, but i don't know which place would be best, does anyone know?

Anyway, my first run. It was on adventurer mode, and i got a lot of luck, so i ended up getting pretty far(-2), so there will be some "minor" spoilers (and also possibly major ones). You've been warned!
The first spoiler tag will be for "minor" spoilers, and the second one for major ones.

Nothing notable at the first floor, and i exited to the next one. Then the craziness begins : i entered the mines and at some point, i met
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

"major" spoiler time!

You can remember that much about your first run after a couple years and 100 runs have passed?! Impressive :)

Pretty insane to take a shortcut to Z on your very first run... and not die soon after, haha. That random option was indeed added less as a strategic one and more as a way to let new players experience some of the deeper more unexpected types of content the game has to offer (as a hook) before inevitably getting annihilated some time after that since it's a pretty overwhelming jump unless you're lucky.

Nice to survive Waste on your first run, too.

Usually takes people forever to figure out the deeper parts of the caves, but wow you got Zh here as well! (surviving an outpost on your first run is also something xD)

Too bad you couldn't take more advantage of Z help, but first run and all... (I imagine having the A8 code first might've impacted your perception of Z dispatches?)

Altogether quite an eventful first run!!!

I also want to make a single "mistake log" in which i would recount mistakes in every run past the 100th, but i don't know which place would be best, does anyone know?
Hm, depends on the goal there, I guess, to share stories or more to cover strategy elements, in which case it could fit in the latter board, or if the former just slightly re-title this thread and continue it on that line, I'd say!

Completely unrelated. I had no idea whether it was single use or not. I assumed Z dispatches were limited because Zion didn't seem that big, and they probably wouldn't send everyone.

Thanks? Some things like the broken exp. sensor array or just the entirety of the wastes i didn't remember in any way whatsoever, but the scoresheet was useful in that regard.
I remember most things because it was a very memorable run, even if i had no idea what i was doing.

Just pure luck. I probably went past several hostile groups with no idea they were even there. Unless i had a sensor array with no signal identifier?
Anyway i'm much better with caves now, i pretty much do everything i can within them, (my exploration rate is usually around 95-99%) and i prefer them to the main complex. I probably spent more in-game time in caves than in the rest of the game, actually. And with the new thing to annotate locations i'm probably going to spend even time there.

Neither? Both? It's just to make a list of mistakes like "Run 98 : Accidentally requested the wrong Z-dispatch, got "3: explosive resupply" instead of "5: Z-light(3)".". Something to remember previous runs and mistakes with and maybe also so others could avoid making the same dumb mistakes as me.

Will be nice when there's even more stuff in there, too ;)
