Skyrim survival mode: How to enable survival mode and survival mode tips in Skyrim: Anniversary Edition • Eurogamer.net


How to survive a harsher Tamriel in the Anniversary Edition.

Survival Mode in Skyrim is a particularly unforgiving experience, but for players who like a challenge, it’s a great way to experience something new in the 2021’s Anniversary Edition.

This page explains everything you need to know about Survival Mode in Skyrim, such as how to enable Survival Mode, survival mode differences – including changes to travel and camping – as well as our Skyrim survival mode tips.

A feature which ties nicely into the addition of survival mode is fishing – which you can also use in a non-survival mode playthrough.

How to enable survival mode in Skyrim, and what to do if not in settings explained

Survival mode can be found in the Settings are of the menu, by selecting Gameplay then enabling Survival Mode.

If it is not in the settings, then you are likely in a new save – and you have to complete the tutorial of Skyrim first.

Once you complete the ‘Unbound’ intro quest with either Hadvar or Ralof, you’ll receive a pop-up notification about Survival Mode. It gives you a brief explanation on what to expect from the mode: such as you needing to eat, to be more wary about catching diseases, the need to sleep, etc before asking you whether you want to enable it or not. If that sounds like fun, you select yes.

From there on out, you’ll be playing Skyrim on Survival Mode – which means it’s a fair bit harder, but who doesn’t love a good challenge?

Nonetheless, if Survival Mode turns out to be too difficult, it’s easy to turn off. Head to Settings, go to Gameplay and you’ll be able to disable it without having to worry about any consequences.

The opposite of this is also true, as you’re able to enable Survival Mode on any previous saves you have started or imported into the Anniversary Edition.

What is survival mode in Skyrim? Survival mode changes, including fast travel, explained

Survival Mode in the Anniversary Edition is a new, exciting way to make your time in the continent of Skyrim a little more challenging and fun.

When enabling Survival Mode, players will need to meet certain requirements in order not to get sick and die. These requirements are: be well-fed, warm, physically well, and well-rested.

However, these requirements won’t always be easy to meet as Survival Mode puts a heapload of restrictions on you. These are:

  • No Fast Travel: You want to just do a quick trip to Riften to pick up something you forgot? That’s no longer possible in Survival Mode. You’ll have to walk!
  • Reduced Carry Weight: Skyrim’s carry weight restrictions are already pretty unforgiving at times, this makes it so you really do need to just pack the essentials.
  • Level Up via Sleeping: In vanilla Skyrim you can level up wherever and whenever, but here you can only do so after you sleep.
  • Reduced Stamina/Mana: If you’re hungry, cold or fatigued, you’ll suffer from a reduction of Stamina or Mana, represented by the darkening of the Stamina/Mana bar.
  • Warm/Cold Meters: Depending on whether you’re hot or cold, you’ll be shown a Snowflake or a Sun at the top of your HUD. This can affect you to the point you can die if you don’t cool down or get warm.
  • Health: When in Survival Mode, health doesn’t come back after waiting for a little while. You’ll need to eat, sleep or use a health potion in order to get back to tip-top shape.

Skyrim survival mode tips and tricks, from survival mode camping to cooking

There’s a lot of factors to consider with survival mode – here are some tips and tricks to help you along the way:

  • Want to know what’s affecting you right now? Head to Active Effects in the Magic menu and you’ll see what being hungry, tired and cold does to affect your gameplay.
skyrim_survival_mode_active_effects
  • Don’t enter water when cold – you’ll more than likely catch a disease and there’s a high chance you can die and lose your progress.
  • Warm soup can heat you up – In the frozen tundra with nowhere to go for another 10 miles? Don’t fret, eat some soup. It’ll not only keep you fed, but will keep you nice and toasty. If that doesn’t work, there’s always a torch to keep your bones warm.
skyrim_survival_mode_soup
  • Cook your food – sometimes it gets desperate when you’re in a dungeon and there’s no food to eat but the raw fish you caught outside, but it’s always better to cook your food before eating it. Just like real life, eating raw food can lead to food poisoning in Skyrim.
skyrim_survival_cooking
  • Fishing is the best way to get food quickly and easy, as long as you know where the best fishing spots are.
  • Craft camping gear – Included in the Anniversary Edition content through the Content Creation Club, crafting camping gear will make it so you’re able to set down camp in the wilderness, giving you a warm fire, a place to cook and a place to settle in for the night.
skyrim_survival_mode_camping_supplies_1
  • The colder you get, the slower you are. It also affects your stamina and how fast you swing your weapons and the effectiveness of your stealth.
  • Travelling in a horse and cart to far off places will make you tired and hungry, so don’t get into one if you’re already pretty fatigued and hungry, otherwise you risk dying on the journey to your location.

Walt Disney World Resort’s 50th anniversary: A look back at the Magic


(CNN) — It changed acres and acres of orange groves. It changed Orlando. It changed Florida. It changed an already legendary company. And it changed the entire theme park industry.

Walt Disney World Resort opened on October 1, 1971. And on its 50th anniversary, it continues to be a major driver in the travel world, weathering big shifts in tourism trends, notorious Florida hurricanes and a pandemic.

Back in ’71, there was just the one theme park, Magic Kingdom, along with a couple of adjacent golf courses and resorts.

The Florida park was actually the second baby in the Disney bunch. It came 16 years after Southern California’s Disneyland, which opened on July 17, 1955.

But sibling No. 2 didn’t stay in the shadows.

Walt Disney World’s influence

Guests board Runnamuck Railroad as part of Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway, which opened in 2020.

The Walt Disney Company

“Obviously, WDW has become one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world in its short 50-year history,” said Martin Lewison, an associate professor of business management at Farmingdale State College on Long Island, New York, in an email interview.

Known in theme park circles as “Professor Roller Coaster,” he said Walt Disney World is a dominating force in the global attractions industry.

“Just as the 1955 opening of Disneyland in California convinced other entrepreneurs that theme parks were a good investment … the opening of Walt Disney World in 1971 led to another spurt of theme park building in the USA,” he said.

Lewison noted some of the major amusement parks that followed soon after: Kings Island in Ohio in 1972, Carowinds on the North Carolina-South Carolina border in 1973, Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey in 1974 and Kings Dominion and Busch Gardens in Virginia in 1975.

“WDW has led the industry in many areas: ride design and technology, entertainment, resort development, transportation systems, special events, dining experiences, ticket pricing, queue products, merchandising [and] conservation,” Lewison said.

Professor Roller Coaster plans to visit the park for the first time since 2019 in November for the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attraction Expo.

His favorite rides include the classics such as Pirates of the Caribbean and the Haunted Mansion and some of the newer rides such as Avatar Flight of Passage.

He said he’s looking forward to his first ride on Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, among others.

Changes and traditions at the park

Guests take a spin on Dumbo, the Flying Elephant at Magic Kingdom Park. This signature ride has been with the park since its open in 1971.

Handout/Disney

They include beloved favorites such as the Country Bear Jamboree, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, the Haunted Mansion and the Tomorrowland Speedway. Jungle Cruise has recently been updated at Disneyland and Disney World to address racially insensitive stereotypes.
And of course, the signature structure of the park, Cinderella Castle, has been there from the start, though she’s seen some makeovers over the years.

How Disney will celebrate the anniversary

Disney’s 50th anniversary party starts on Friday, but it’s hardly going to be a one-day affair.

This is going to be an 18-month party. And celebrations will be held not only in the Magic Kingdom but at the other three of the resort’s theme parks.

A “Beacons of Magic” show starts Friday, where signature structures in each park will be specially illuminated: Cinderella Castle in Magic Kingdom, Spaceship Earth at Epcot, Hollywood Tower Hotel at Hollywood Studios and the Tree of Life at Animal Kingdom.
Just at the Magic Kingdom, a nighttime show called “Disney Enchantment” will feature music, enhanced lighting, fireworks and immersive projection effects from Cinderella Castle down Main Street, U.S.A.

Tulsa race massacre: Biden to travel to Oklahoma to commemorate 100th anniversary


No other details were made immediately available about the trip slated for June 1.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of a race massacre in the Greenwood District of Tulsa, which encompassed more than 35 city blocks of entirely Black-owned businesses. A beacon for African Americans looking to escape the discrimination and violence of the Jim Crow South and live a peaceful and safe life, the district was founded by Black men and women — many of whom were descendants of slaves — and became known as Black Wall Street.

On May 31, 1921, racial tensions and violence with the neighboring White residents in Tulsa boiled over in a massacre. Hundreds of Greenwood’s Black residents were killed and the district was left in ashes.

The White House’s announcement of the visit came after Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris met on Tuesday with the family of George Floyd on the one-year anniversary of his death at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer, sparking nationwide protests against racism and police brutality.
Meanwhile, the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act — legislation that would set up a national registry of police misconduct, ban racial and religious profiling by law enforcement and overhaul qualified immunity for police officers — remains stalled in the Senate. Biden had set an initial goal of having the legislation passed by Tuesday, but the White House backed off that deadline to allow negotiations to continue in Congress.
Biden’s visit to Tulsa comes nearly a year after his predecessor took a controversial trip to the city. Last June, then-President Donald Trump visited Tulsa in his first campaign rally since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, which by that time had already caused more than 2.2 million cases and 118,900 deaths in the United States, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.
Trump’s visit was initially slated for June 19 — Juneteenth, the holiday commemorating the end of slavery in the United States. The date was met with widespread criticism amid the national outcry following Floyd’s death and nationwide protests over police brutality and racial inequality. Trump announced days before Juneteenth that he would reschedule the rally to June 20 “out of respect for this holiday.”
During the rally, Trump stirred controversy anew when he said he had told officials in his administration to slow down coronavirus testing because of the rising number of cases in America. Tulsa also saw an increase in Covid-19 cases following the rally.

Travel Vouchers Set To Expire As Anniversary Of COVID Shutdown Nears – CBS Los Angeles


LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – As we approach the anniversary of the COVID-19 shutdown, those who cancelled travel early on in the pandemic may see their vouchers expire soon.

Scott Keyes with Scott’s Cheap Flights says many airline travel vouchers will expire after a year.

He says the biggest mistake hesitant travelers can make is waiting until after their voucher expires to ask to extend it.

Keyes says you have to reach out beforehand.

“The original expiration date is really more written in pencil than in pen,” he said. “The airlines and hotels won’t proactively extend them for you, but there is a squeaky wheel gets the grease kind of situation.”

Experts say it’s good to be persistent when asking for a refund or extension – but be polite.

If your voucher already expired, Keyes says it’s still worth calling the hotel or airline because you may be able to still get all or some of your credit back.

Keyes also provided us with a list of the current airline voucher policies:

On United, travel certificates are valid for up to 24 months after the date they were issued while future flight credits for tickets issued between May 1, 2019 and March 31, 2020, are valid for 24 months after the original issue date. This means you need to book by the expiration date but you can travel after it.

On American, a flight credit is good for travel within one year from the issue date with the caveat that if your credit expires before March 31, 2021, it can be used for a travel date through December 31, 2021. A voucher must be used within one year of issue (the travel date doesn’t have to be within the year).

And on Delta, vouchers usually must be used within the year. But, for tickets purchased before April 17, 2020, for original travel by March 31, 2021, you can use your voucher for travel until December 31, 2022.

Southwest puts credits into travel funds which normally can be used for a flight that takes place within one year of issue. But for pandemic-era flights, it extended the travel date to September 7, 2022.
