Loper, 10 years of survival (3653 days)
No mods. No saves/backups. 'One life' only.

1) Interestingly the fact that it is possible and survival can continue long time without problems;
2) It seems to me I have too much free time.

Actually though, you deserve a special steam badge or something.
Just ... speechless. Wow.

Also: have you stripped everything totally bare? Are you dependent on beachcombing? Do you have scrap metal left? Matches? Fascinated to hear some things about what life is like, 3k days further down the line...
Stunning. Mad props.

The only possible set of clothes. Please note: no socks.

Yeah, completely dependent on beachcombing.
Scrap metal is still a lot on the map. But there is a decrease: spawns weakly.
There are no problems with matches, there are still more than 100 + a pair of lighters. Over the last 1000 days spent 1 or 2 pieces.
Clothes spawn so that the increase / decrease is zero, there is still a stock of more than 200 pieces.
Saplings spawn well.

I salute your neurosis.

Wow. I'm speechless. I am without words.

Seriously though, I had no idea metal and saplings respawn! Beachcombing or die for the rest I'm guessing at that point. Is the world significantly colder by then? What's with the no socks? Do wildlife cycles change after that long? I have so many questions.

Your dedication is impressive. :trophy:

You have given us an impressive example of the will to live!
Congratulations!
Truly incredible!
How many bears were killed?
And why 75%? For 10 years you would investigate all nooks and crannies. What else to do during this long long time...

A very impressive run, congrats to your persistence!

@JayXL I also don't wear the sox. The warmth benefit you get from them is not worth the weight and repair costs.

One time bear was caught me. It was after 3000 days of survival. One second of slackness and now I’m already watching a cognitive cartoon about a bearish salivation.
Hypothermia for winter bathing was canceled, but before that i hat dive many times, running for loot on ice. I'm not sure that this has hardened my body, but the number of useful items has increased.
Thanks.
2700 shots - impressive, it's about 250 saplings for arrows.

And 99 fights it is astonishing. How are you still alive? Are you using a hatchet or hammer?

Damn impressive! I’m curious your thoughts on long term survival?? Challenges? Routine? Thoughts on supplies?

Not many decide to continue on long term survival. Imo, the game ratchets to a different level; not the game itself but how you manage, prepare and plan for eventual material loss. I’m curious as to the eventual finality but I’d imagine decades is quite a possibility.

Congrats!
