FAR: Changing Tides Cheats and Tips
If You Can’t Go Around, Go Under
Far: Changing Tides is all about navigating your massive ship across bodies of water. However, there are certain instances where you must swim around underwater by yourself. In these situations, if you can’t go around an obstacle, simply go under them or through them.
This point is especially true at the start of the game when you are first making your way to your ship. There are some buildings that don’t seem penetrable but you can actually go under them or clamber your way through them.
Keep An Eye Out For Interaction Points
At various points throughout your journey you will come across items or obstacles that can be interacted with. These items are denoted by a blue color. Typicaly these will be levers, boxes, crates, repair items, ladders, and the like.
Far: Changing Tides is a game that keeps you moving forward and each time you get to a new area, you are generally going to have to complete some sort of little puzzle. If you are stuck in a given area, keep a lookout for those blue highlighted objects that you can interact with.
You Can Zoom In or Out At Any Time
Far: Changing Tides gives you the option to zoom the camera in or out at any time. While this may sound like a very small feature, it actually becomes incredibly useful as you progress in the game, mostly because it’s good to see what’s right in front of you, or what’s coming up.
You are able to hold down a button that can zoom out the camera or zoom in the camera. Generally speaking, you will use the zoom out feature to see what obstacles lie in front of your ship, and you will use the zoom in feature when completing certain puzzles or interacting with your ship.
Propel Yourself Underwater
Near the very start of the game you will stumble into an underwater location that almost seems like a scientific research base deep below the water-logged city. In this area you will obtain a special suit that allows you to propel yourself underwater.
This new suit gives you extra speed when navigating the many watery depths you will encounter in your journey. The propel feature does need to be briefly charged between uses so just know you won’t be able to hold it down indefinitely.
Controlling Each Aspect Of Your Ship
Much like the cartoony space adventure Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime where you have to control all parts of your ship, Far: Changing Tides also has a similar gameplay mechanic. Simply put, you, and you alone, must control each and every aspect of your ship in order to get it moving.
As mentioned in a previous entry. the blue interaction points are what you are looking for when getting your ship seaworthy. Turning on your ship, controlling the sails, and maneuvering the large rudder are all things you need to keep in mind as you sail forward in this world.
