Whats the difference between setting up a tent and not?

Recommended Posts

CharmCitysKing

When you set up camp in the wilderness is there a difference between setting up a tent and not? I know you can sleep with or without a tent and you can cook with or without a tent as well. Is the tent just cosmetic and just something to make you feel more "immersed" ? 

Thanks.

When you set up a tent a grill gets added to your campfire so you can craft more items.

If it's raining you will set up a tent, if not, a camp...

They are both the same.

Hmm; in my experience, the "Cook/Craft" option always appears whether or not I set up a tent along with the campfire.

 

I'm wondering more if a tent provides more (theoretical?) protection against being attacked by animals at night?

Yes, but with the grill you get access to more cooking recipes, apparently.  I haven't really messed with this but I think it's that you can only cook plain meat on the fire with your knife; you can do recipes with herbs and stuff on the grill.

I never paid it much attention, but I do believe you are correct. I've noticed that when I cook a meat recipe with herbs, Arthur will place it on the grill to cook rather than holding it to the fire with his knife. 

 

Makes sense.

All this time I was wondering how to season my meat. 

Thanks.

they are completely opposite. if its no tent, then its just a bed roll and limited crafting/cooking items.  

 

If i do plan on spending a day or few hours on hunting , then i will set up a tent in a location and just leave it up while i go hunt in the area.

the tent appearence on your camp is based on temperature if you set up camp in the cold or rain  there will be a tent. if you do it down south where it is warmer you wont see the tent.

How so, I set up a camp from the item wheel. There is an option for just a fire. The option for a camp will produce a tent if it is raining or snowing.

When its not raining or snowing, after you set up the camp, there will be an option to set up the tent, if you dont set up tent you can just sleep with bedroll, at that point your crafting/cooking options are limited.

Limited how?

I'll try it tonight but 99% of the time I do not have the tent up and I have not noticed that I have less crafting options.

What are the differences?

Its mainly more for cooking, you get more options, i dont think it matters for when it comes to the ammo.

That was an interesting read.  I set camp the other day-rarely set up the tent myself as I like the Asthetics of just the bedroll and fire with the horse.  Did not realize the Tent added options.

 

I was wondering what happens if you do not break it all down and leave it-I forgot to break down the campfire the other day and saw it on the map but makes me wonder if I leave sporadic camps all over if there is any purpose or, if you leave yout tent in the Grizzlies will you have one down in the Heartlands too

I can cook meat plain, minty, with thyme, and oregano without setting up a tent. Are there more flavors with the tent? A nice sweet & spicy, perhaps?

I have the grill for all cooking and recipes regardless of tent up or not. So, that's a lie.

You can always set up a tent. D-pad up in the sleep menu.

If you don't have access to your saddle you can't set up a tent when you camp

You can’t set up a real camp, it’s just a fire and you can only make basic crafting.

The tent does not matter. The only thing that matters is that your horse is within range to set up a camp and not just make a fire.
