 (Version 0.7.5)

WARNING!!! WARNING!!! WARNING!!!

Due to the nature of the hunger system and how it works, it is a permanent
change to your save game file. Once installed, it will perma change the way stamina works for that save file. It is recommended to start a new save with v0.4 
or newer but is not mandatory.

Also, You MUST MUST MUST download the SotW v0.5 Essential Mods packs
for v0.4 or newer to work correctly. Just extract them into the Cemu GraphicsPack folder like a graphics pack and then enable it in Cemu under the mods section.


Survival of the Wild is a complete overhaul to BOTW that adds and/or enhances the survival elements of the game. Great for players on a second playthrough looking for a challenge.

There are 2 seperate versions of the mod...

1) Normal Mode: The normal version of the mod with balanced gameplay for casual players.

2) Hero Mode: The hardcore version geared more towards survival game junkies with more difficult settings and mods. (Not finished yet)

Current Features of the mod...

* Wearable Lantern

* Darker Nights & Brighter Lights (Graphical Overhaul, not a clarity preset)

* 5x weapon durability

* Tougher Trees and Ore

* Disabled Fast Travel 

* Higher Field of View 

* Adds Depth of Field

* Disabled sleeping at fires: (Hero Mode only)

* Minimalistic UI. 

* New background music to match the darker atmosphere. 

* SOTW has it's own Clarity preset for Cemu, just download the latest graphics packs in the Cemu Graphics packs tab and it should be in Clarity by default.

* Hunger System. (see below for details)

* Survival style inventory management.

* Added new health potions to the game (Red Potion)

* A new boss enemy

* Light sources such as offhand torches, a lantern and a backpack with a lantern attached

* graphical improvements such as darker nights and shrines, god rays, depth of field,
   a higher field of view, more realistic looking atmosphere, also has it's own clarity preset in CEMU (this is all done through game files not a clarity preset or any other artificial way)

* Harsher weather and climates, more windy, colder at night etc etc

* And more!!!

Please leave any found bugs or glitches in the comments section, it helps more than you know!

This project is intended for CEMU users only, it cannot be used on Wii-U.

After installing the mod, you may experience some wonky weather. Just sleep 3-4 in game days for the weather to (catch up)

0.5+ Hunger System:

* The yellow wheels are now the hunger meter, they are separate from stamina wheel now,   the stamina wheel is the same as vanilla BotW but the stamina consumption is about half of vanilla speed.

* the hunger wheel slowly depletes over time. every action you do... attacking, running, swimming, climbing, standing, walking etc etc adds to the depletion to a degree depending on the action itself (ex: running drains more than walking)

* every cooked meal in the game now adds to the hunger wheel. I have added different tiers of hunger to different food depending on rarity, quality and only hearty foods give hearts as well as hunger.

* extemely hot or cold weather without the proper armor or potions will drain your hunger wheel much faster while freezing or too hot. the speed at which it drains faster also depends on exactly how hot or cold you are. (extreme weather no longer does damage to link)

* Cooked food (in a cooking pot) only restores hunger (except hearty food) while roasted food (open fire) restores hearts only. Raw food does nothing when eaten. 

* this is based on a 2 hour day cycle, not vanilla day cycle. how fast the hunger wheel drains depends soley on what youre doing... if youre riding your horse or just standing there, then hunger will last for 3 literal in game days (roughly 72 hours), if youre on a killing spree and using special abilities like a maniac, it could drain in about 4-5 in game hours or quicker.

* when Link's hunger is completely depleted, he goes into a permanent tired state. (hunched over and catching his breath) in this state you cant run, climb, swim, paraglide... and you move much slower than usual. if you eat cooked food you will return to normal.

* Sleeping will drain hunger, depending on how long you sleep for. Inns have an option for a "bed and breakfast" for a little extra rupees. This option will restore full hunger as well as hearts.

ENJOY!!!

This is basically a finished mod project btw, I may add some more features in the future but I consider v0.5+ 100% done with all of the main features of the project.

(Special thanks to "Zelda Reorchestrated" for their fantastic work on the Zelda music remakes!) and to all the modders and testers out there that helped me along the way.

Thank you!!!

    Is there absolutely any way to turn off the 'disable sleeping at fires in Hero Mode' option?? Besides that this is a flawless mod.

    How exactly do I go about installing the Zelda's Ballad patch when playing through CEMU? I've installed Zelda's Ballad and SOTW through BCML and activated the essential files via graphics pack. However when trying to install the sotwzeldasballadcompatibility.bnp, I keep getting an error message which shows

    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File: "J:\Games\BCML2\pkgs\bcml\__init__.py", line 1022, in run self._target(*self.args)

    is there any chance you could put up an optional file that just adds the hunger system and nothing else?

    Fantastic mod!

    I'm not sure if this mod's causing it, but it seems there's no rain except for in the Trial of Thunder, and possibly some other places I haven't tried yet. It's just been clear weather all the way through.

    I think rain would suit the mod immensely. If you hate the climbing penalty, you could for instance use it to make the weather colder instead or so.

    It's cool but could you make one for hunger and a flashlight without darker nights?
    pd:
    Any idea why you are holding the lantern with the hand holding the shield?
