Senses icon

Senses is an action performed by pressing the appropriate button when available.

Senses allow you to find a Tuto intel ico.png Point of Interest. This action is an important function of exploration.

Senses are used to find practical items and to locate items you have already discovered.

Learning specific neurons increases your sensing abilities.

Mechanics[]

Press the appropriate button and using senses will begin. You can then press the appropriate button to choose hearing or smelling. The visual display of points of interest will begin showing. Hearing shows as echos of sound emanating outwards from the point of interest. Smelling shows as puffs of vapor wafting out from the point of interest.

Don't move to stay in senses. You can rotate your view to find animals, clan members, items, and locations within your senses range. You can then Sense ico.png Focus on these points of interest and Sense ico.png Identify them.

After identifying items, while still in senses, you can then Memorize ico.pngMemorize the point of interest so you can investigate it. Once a point of interest has been memorized, you can Memorize ico.pngRemember or Memorize ico.pngForget the point of interest.

If you move, you can leave out of senses.

If you Stand Up, you can increase the range of senses.

If you haven't inspected or discovered the point of interest before and it is unknown to you, you will only get a large question mark ? inside of the point of interest after trying to identify or discover it. You will have to inspect or discover the unknown point of interest up close and in person to learn what it is. From that point forward, when you use senses and the related functions to find points of interest, you will automatically know what it is. You don't have to keep going up in person to inspect or discover the same point of interest.
