I alway play yukon with ×5 zombies spawn, ×2 item spawn ( to balance a few the gameplay ) , ×3 zombie life, zombies 2 shot, all kind of zombies ( even bosses ) , ×2 zombie speed, almost infinite blizzard ( well, for 60 minutes of gameplay, there is around 55 minutes of blizzard ) , and the worst, wolves and Bears spawn ×10 , I am planning to one day open a server with this config… and no mod, no rocket, only player instinct… cant stop bleeding / cant repair leg ( except with medics )
No group , if you accidentally shot a friend, he die.
Zombies cant be stunted
Dropped Items dispawn after 3 minutes
Destroyed vehicles… almost NEVER RESPAWN, they respawn every unturned weeks… that means 336 or 366 minutes
Thoses were the things that make player survival hard.
Now, positive things are :
Alway 1 / 16 to 1/4 full battery and tires on vehicles
Alway 20 to 40 % fuel
Heavy damage from guns to players ( 1 bullet = death )
With that, you got a unique PVW ( player versus wild ) experience, both zombies, players, animals and climate want your death… How could you survive if you come from “XxMLGPROKILLERxX PEI tpa/kits/.i/.v/Mk II for everyone” ??? , you couldnt against the reals experienced players.
For PVE, I cant provide any tips that trying to be autosufiscient ( well, find a city, manage to find at least 1 seed and then, build a base , craft planters and live alone for ever , you just have to get max agriculture skill and one day, you wont need anymore to get in cities to survive, your instinct will became stronger, you will then, be able maybe, to extract your own fuel for your base energy, well, if you are experienced at unturned , you will survive and prospere… if you are not, you are already gone…
For PVP, blizzard will allow you to be stealth and hide from ennemies, your base wont be raided because no explosives or high caliber spawn there, well, PVP is horrible in this map…
