I am still largely a newbie with the game and have only gotten to Day 13 solo and never past that point. I know it is advised to find a POI and fortify that as your base in the beginning, but I just cannot bring myself to do that. I just love creating a base from scratch and upgrading it over the days before the first blood moon. Granted there are advantages to picking a POI early as a base, I just feel it hinders my creativity. Besides, most of the POIs houses are dirty lol. What do you all think?
