Unknown. I didn't do any real research. All I know is that my team usually rolled with 3 or 4 people and combat was relentlessly punishing and challenging. When I tried to solo in the same world, it seemed like the amount of enemies was the same and it was basically unplayable. Maybe it scaled some, maybe it didn't, but soloing was awful, and I say that as one of the best fighters in my group.
Thanks for the advice, I will keep the saves as they are because I can accept getting killed and respawning where my camp is...its a survival game after allDon't mod the save system, quicksaves are the cancer of gaming.
The game is great, free form exploration, dungeons are fun, resources are tight (unless you keep respawn on) and survival mechanics are not that obtrusive to feel like a hassle.
The bad? Its ridden with bugs, so either be prepared or wait for the even more buggy sequel.

Thanks for the advice, initially I didnt want to use any walkthrough but I have using Steam for tipsWord of warning, BruceVC - gameplay systems are locked behind exploring the right places. Example: despite an endless supply of tourist luggage from the plane crash, there is exactly ONE piece of paper available on the whole island which will allow you to draw a map of your surroundings. If you don't happen to look in the one exact cave, you can't have a map in the game. My group didn't have access to this for many hours, because we didn't pick the right random direction at the start. So either be sure to explore very aggressively, or be prepared to glance at a walkthrough from time to time to make sure the actual game isn't hidden from you.
bollocks, I finished my first playthrough without the map norUnless you have FOMO or something you can do just fine with the bare minimum.compass, climbing axe or chainsaw
Note, my advice is not just about the map, but about the design of the game in general. If you go to things in the wrong order, or don't aggressively explore every possible area, you will miss out on critical systems or items. It's not like Valheim where the game will teach you gradually how to do things no matter how you explore.the map is a nice to have but not necessarily a must. The world is really really small and has a lot of stuff that you can use as landmark such as the mountain, crater and beach.
