3-day achievement
I was thinking about doing a run of this game for the three days achievement.
Anybody did that yet ?
Going to Vega first seems like the fastest way to me.
To prevent the creature from interrupting, I guess it's best to get all six ingredients first, before producing the three parts of the cure.

Yes, I've made a couple runs in that timeframe, but that was before beta 3, so I don't know if the achievement works yet.
You have 2 days before the creature shows. Use them wisely. You need to travel through the night to get it all done in time, so be familiar with where to find the plants you need.
I went toward Sirius first, since those plants have the fewest trails close to it, then I either went toward Vega or Polaris. Tau is sort of along the way between them or the ending, so it can be collected whenever is convenient.

I just got this achievement, using Vixie's advice. Relied heavily on the compass and a printed out map. Here's the route I took:

First thing, ran out east to grab the Carnivorous Pitcher Plant and Titan Plant. Hightailed it to Ruin Site B to pick up the Bio-Luminescent Algae, around 4 or 5 pm. Ran up towards Outpost Tau, picking up the ingredients for the Muscle Emphasis Drug on the way. By the time I reached Outpost Tau, it was pitch black, and after synthesizing the Muscle Emphasis Drug, I had to pick up the Blue Scaly Tree Fungus and Bulbous Fruit Plant in the dark.

Only one more ingredient to go, and now I could swim part of the way. Made it to an unnamed ruins outpost around 6 am, picked up the Rainbow Orchid a couple hours later, and returned to Outpost Polaris to finally synthesize the cure. Reached the center of the map around noon, and after a misadventure that included the Crazy Climber Achievement, finally made it to the boat.

Good luck in your adventures! I'm off to map the island :D

It's possible to cut quite a bit of time off if you grab the Bio-Illuminescent Algae from a different spot ;)

I've come across a second swamp that it grows in.

Those sneaky Johnson brothers. :)

Thank you, TARmeZAN!
I completed speed run in 1 day and 4-5 hours, using your intel :) With ZERO creature encounters!

Did you ever try again for a faster time?
