FunAndPrettyThings.com Survival Simulation


There was a new update to the Life Preserving Information page on the FunAndPrettyThings website.
LIFE INSIDE A BUNKER IS GOING TO BE A CHALLENGE. ESPECIALLY SINCE WE MAY HAVE TO STAY DOWN THERE FOR A FEW YEARS. IT’S IMPORTANT TO BE PREPARED – NOT JUST WITH SUPPLIES AND GEAR, BUT WITH THE KNOWLEDGE OF WHAT TO DO ONCE YOU’RE DOWN THERE. IT’S GOING TO BE A DIFFERENT KIND OF LIVING,WITH NO ROOM FOR MISTAKES.

I MADE SOMETHING TO HELP YOU GET READY. IT MAY JUST FEEL LIKE A LITTLE GAME, BUT IT CONTAINS A LOT OF IMPORTANT INFORMATION TO HELP YOU LEARN WHAT IT’LL TAKE TO SURVIVE.

I HOPE YOU LEARN QUICKLY FROM IT.

LOVE,

DAD
Heading to the link takes you to a text-based survival simulation game, where you can practice living in a bunker to see how long you can survive. I lasted 216 days on my first try.

  9. 219 days. Didn't see the ration thing. I'm stupid.

    Also, does anyone know the name of John Gallagher Jr's character? We know John Goodman is Howard, and Mary Winstead is Michelle (unless JJ is puking us. Again) but what's JG jr's name?

  13. The leaderboard is being hacked, so I wouldn't trust anything that is there.

  15. The message from Howard in the survival simulator has NO typos. I'm still thinking all the typos are important somehow. Especially if he was a cryptographer, implied by the radioman thing.

  16. Pardon me if this has been solved already - I'm playing catch-up. I'm wondering if to get whatever info we need from the simulator if someone is going to have to make it 1,095 days (3 years or 1,096 days to account that this is a leap year)

  17. New FAPT update?
    I CAN SEE YOU’RE STILL USING THE SIM, MEGAN, AND I KNOW YOU CAN DO BETTER. I’VE GONE THROUGH AND MADE SOME CHANGES BASED ON MY LATEST FINDINGS. FOR INSTANCE, BEING ON YOUR OWN DOWN THERE WON’T BE SO EASY IN REALITY. SO NOW IT’S NOT SO EASY IN THE SIM EITHER. IT’S NOW A BETTER TEST OF YOUR PREPARATION APPROACH, AND SHOULD MAKE YOU THINK TWICE ABOUT TRYING TO GO IT ALONE. WE’RE LOOKING AT 2 YEARS AT MINIMUM. AND IT’LL PROBABLY EVEN LONGER.

    ALONG THOSE LINES, A TIP – MORALE MAY SEEM TO BE LESS IMPORTANT THAN HARD SUPPLIES. BUT IT’S NOT. TRUST ME, I KNOW.

    KEEP TRYING AND DON’T LET ME DOWN.

    LOVE,

    DAD

    1. Read the HELP and the INFO for all the jobs. Start with two people, and use the FILL option to set up your supplies, just to get a feel for how many supplies you'll need. Research, research, research - as much as you can. Each successful research gives you bonuses that make you or your supplies last longer. Once you get the bonus that keeps your health from deteriorating, then start rationing all your players.
