Been exploring for a few hours , and this is what i noticed on the new map.
first it is gorgeous, love the red wood forest the best! Azura Tears waterfall area!
making a new character i noticed if you choose white hair , you get white eye lashes.
need more aloe in the starting areas, 1 hour before i found my first one , and was unsure how to heal since i did not realize food did not heal. also the survival perk might need to be changed if food does not heal us?
dagger hit boxes are …way off. not sure to aim up or aim down when trying to hit things.
the bird’s that attack you seem to go through you first, and you can not hit them unless the birds animation is done. ( ramming)
when you are done using a bandage , the characters leg is in a very weird position. also , the animation is great but very long and locks you in place. maybe tweak that?
the landscape is great , all the trees and mountains, but where are the little caves? not thrall caves like the old map, but livable cozy starter caves? all these mountains should have little niches in them so you can build a small starter shelter. i did find one behind a waterfall , but it is very tiny. more natural shelters!
the weather and the wind are awesome! very immersive. the lighting attacks from the sky squid are super loud ! lol scared me at first .
also thank you for the no shake toggle!!! and thank you for fixing the interact button when looting. no longer have to hit esc every time i need to get out of a chest or body when looting.
days are very short it feels and night is not that dark. more daylight for those sun rays!
best area for me is the Azura Tears waterfall area. gorgeous! grats to the art team!.
anyways , really enjoyed my few hours and thats what i noticed.
