Ok I started playing this game 2 days ago since I wanted a game like dwarf fortress so someone recommended me cataclysm dda. And since then I been having tons of fun with this game but never passed the first day. But anyways after my last guy died from bleeding out I started a new game, my first thought was to beat down the locker to get a pipe. When I went to the locker there was a hole in the wall and a fire so I backed up. And then I notice there was rebars under the benches so I took one a went to sharpen it, I look in the corner and it said I hear smash then bam. There was fire and smoke inside the building, since I was close to a door I ran out while inhaling the smoke. When I got out there was even more fire north of the shelter. And here I am, I also enabled npc’s so the one that was in the shelter burnt I guess? There was no message about him dying though? Anyways I just wish all my previous games could have had this awesome start, it full of mystery and I reason to leave the shelter.
Edit: I just got to the street and found my other character body the one bleed out to death. I took his knife spear and his pistol. Weirdly the house he died next to is a pile of rumble now? Also my stats when down cause of the smoke any way to raise them back up?
Artifact? The other house that was north was the same place my other character got his guns. I sweep the place clean, the only thing I didn’t take though was the other guns. It was basically a gun shop in a basement. But the rumble covering the stair case though, so I now regret not taking the rifles and submachine guns.
