Temporal Storm Ongoing

OK I've got a few hours in the game and purchased a server.

The temporal storms last a long time. I've tried staying in my house but the storm last long enough to drive me insane and I just die over and over. the storm never ends.

This isn't from damage from the creatures, I've killed all that appeared.

Do I have a bug or have done something wrong?

Define "long time". My storms last about 6-8 irl minutes. If you place a temporal gear in your off hand and a knife in your active hand, right click to consume the gear and help refill your temporal gear gauge will also help.

The latter, most likely.

Probably your Temporal Stability dropped far enough that you entered the "Rust World."

Which basically looks like a never ending Temporal Storm, even though the Temporal Storm HAS ended. Your Temporal Gear will keep on spinning left.


Honestly, the game could do with a chat message "You have entered the Rust World" - because this transition really isn't as clear as it should be.

See https://wiki.vintagestory.at/index.php/Temporal_stability

The only way to get out of it is to restore your Temporal Stability - by activating a Temporal Gear or killing enough Drifters.

Here are pitfalls to avoid:

* Do not be in a Temporally unstable zone during a Temporal Storm.
Corollary 1 - Do not build your base in an unstable zone.
Corollary 2 - Do not shelter in a trader's caravan during a temporal storm, in an unstable zone or if your stability is already low.

* Especially do not be in an unstable zone during a storm. Almost certain death awaits.
Run through the night if you have to, to get to a stable zone. Then hide in hole/bunker/whatever.

* Always keep one Temporal Gear and a knife in a chest in your base, so that you can exit the Rust World if needed.

If you just need to break THIS loop, then go into Creative mode (/gamemode Creative), give yourself a Temporal Gear or two and a knife, use them, then revert to Surival once the Rust World ends (/gamemode Survival).

 

Hope this helps.
