Warning about Compasses (Magnets Trophy)

37 posts in this topic

I've completed the game never holding a Compass in my hand. So you're either not allowed to have them in the inventory or this trophy is glitched.
So if you find a chest with a compass, leave the compass insinde and dont pick up the whole chest.

Furthermore, you probably want to avoid using the Gyrocopter since it has a compass build in.

 

This is all just speculation, since it could just be a buggy trophie. Im starting a new game atm, trying to get the Magnets trophy. I'll keep you updated.

Thanks for the information!

 

How long does one playthrough take? And is it hard to finish the game?

Took me technically 40 hours. but I messed up with the compass. And the build-everything-throphy is still unobtainable

 

edit: the build-everything-trophy just popped for me. So its not unobtainable, but a mess and potentially buggy

Unrelated question but what land animals did you need for the storm trophy? I’ve got two boar and two snakes but haven’t encountered any other land animals?

I took crabs and seagulls with me too. The seagulls might not be needed, but i didn't want to take the risk

Just finished another playthrough. Following the rules above did unlock the compass trophy for me.

I didn't even built the gyrocopter, but I think building it wont affect the trophy.

Someone else has to confirm if using the copter voids the trophy.

How can you take them with you? I cannot pick them up except the crabs... snakes and boars I can only skin... little advise?

You can drag stuff around using L2. I just dragged all animals to the beach and waited for a storm, loaded them on the raft and some seconds later the trophy popped.

Thanks.
I did the vegan stuff right away while staying at the same island for 10 days straight. 
i was about day 8 when I stopped sleeping on land, so the counter for "seafarer" started

you have to craft the sleeping bag and drop in onto your raft.

After 10 days passed I began to explore, sleeping only like this on my raft.

How did you ended the game, with an Airplane? I found one, but it need a lot of materials and stuff.

Exactly. You need to find (or craft) all those things and bring it there.

 

I already wrote a trophy guide, i don't know how long it takes the admins to publish it.

You‘re my hero, thanks a lot! I can‘t wait for your guide 😊 How would you rate the difficulty and length of the platinum trophy?

Thank you 😁
If you don't mess up the compass thing like I did, it's doable in about 40 hours. It took me 60 ingame days, where a day lasts ~40mins.
The speedrun for just getting the compass trophy took 16 ingame days.

 

I'd rate the difficulty 3/10. With the right tactics and equipment the bosses aren't that hard.

Looking forward to your trophy guide. Any word on when it will be published ?

 

Having a tough time finding the sea monsters. Going for the no compass play through. Been sailing around their areas as shown on the cartographer screen but can't find any of them...

 Megalodon is a broken fishing boat and a dead whale.  Luska the Squid is a orange bouy (underneath), and the Eel boss is a sunken warship which you should be able to see the top of it above the water.  If that helps at all.  I actually cant find the warship at the moment in the area its supposed to be in. :/

Yes you're right. The bouy for the squid is luminated at Night. And all locations break the surface line of the ocean. 

 

I have no idea how long it usually take the admins to Review a New guide. It's almost a Werk since I sent it in

No need to avoid using the Gyrocopter, I got the trophy no issues and used the Gyro frequently. 
 

I never had a compass in my inventory though, one time I accidentally did I quit the game and reloaded. I think that may be why you didn’t get the trophy initially.
