看过很多攻略,却依旧过不好这一生

这是一款模拟人生的策略游戏,如在真实的生活里一样,有跳舞、打球、飚车、床上运动等小游戏。

但想获胜,你必须把时间花在该花的地方,合理运用资源。时间永远是你最需要关心的东西。

这是不是也和真正的人生如出一辙呢?

 

童年

Life begins when you’re assigned a random character and circumstances:The first 15 years or so of life are just tutorial missions, which suck. There’s no way to skip these.

你呱呱坠地,进入游戏,并被系统随机分配了个性以及身世。《人生》前15年左右都是些教学关卡,弱弱的,你还没法点“跳过”。

青年

As a young player, you’ll have lots of time and energy, but almost no experience. You’ll find most things – like the best jobs, possessions and partners – are locked until you get some.

This is the time to level up your skills quickly. You will never have so much time and energy again.

Now that you’re playing properly, your top priority is to assign your time as well as possible. Every single thing you do affects your state and your skills:

作为一个初来乍到的新手,你有大把的时间和用不完的精力,但几乎毫无经验。你会发现游戏的大多数元素,像什么牛逼的工作啦,财富啦,伴侣啦都还没有解锁,一直到你真正拥有了它们。

这段时间,你的技能升级得非常快。在之后的游戏中,你再也不可能像这个阶段一样时间充裕而且精力充沛。

如果想要玩出水平,最重要的是要把时间安排得尽可能好。你的任何一个行动都会改变你的状态和技能:

 

This may sound simple, but the problem is you won’t always know what tasks to choose, and your body won’t always obey your commands. Let’s break it down.

听上去简单,但问题是你不可能每一次都清楚该选择什么任务,你的身体也未必总是遵从你的指令。我们来分两步解决问题:

如何让自己遵从指令

Many players find that when they choose to do something – say “go to the gym” – their body ignores them completely.

This is not a bug. Everybody has a state, which you can’t see directly, but looks something like this:

许多玩家抱怨说当他们决定进行某个任务——比如“上健身房”——的时候,他们的身体发生了完完全全无视指令的情况。

这不是出了Bug。每个人都有一个血槽,虽然你没法直接瞧见,但差不多是像这样:

 

If your state gets too low in one area, your body will disobey your own instructions until your needs are met. Try studying when you’re exhausted and hungry, and watch your concentration switch to Twitter.

如果其中某根槽空了的话,你的身体就会不听使唤,直到其需求被满足为止。试试看在又饿又累的时候翻书学习,观察自己的注意力是怎样转移到手机上的。

Your willpower level is especially important. Willpower fades throughout the day, and is replenished slightly by eating, and completely by a good night’s sleep. When your willpower is low, you are only able to do things you really want to.

如果其中某根槽空了的话,你的身体就会不听使唤,直到其需求被满足为止。试试看在又饿又累的时候翻书学习,观察自己的注意力是怎样转移到手机上的。

Every decision you have to make costs willpower, and decisions where you have to suppress an appealing option for a less appealing one (e.g. exercise instead of watch TV) require a lot of willpower.

意志力状态尤其重要,它每时每刻都在减少。好好吃一顿能少量恢复,好好睡一觉能恢复全满。意志力低的时候,你只能做那些你真的想干的事情。做决定会消耗意志力。下决心不去做吸引你的事情,而去做不那么吸引你的事情会大大消耗意志力。

有几个技巧可以让你的身体更加听话:

Keep your state high

保持良好“状态”

要是饿了,累坏了,或者所有的乐子都被剥夺,你的意志力就会崩溃。至始至终你都得好好照顾自己。

Don’t demand too much willpower from one day.

别想着在一天里把“意志力”全部用出来。

最辛苦最难的任务分几天去做,在当中安排一些简单的省力的活儿来调剂。

Attempt the most important tasks first.

优先对付最重要的任务。

其他的任务虽然被耽搁,但是事情有轻重缓急,任务分主线支线嘛。

Reduce the need to use willpower by reducing choices.

通过减少选择来节省“意志力”。

如果要在一台装满游戏下满美剧的电脑上工作,你会消耗额外的意志力,因为相比手里头疼的工作,偷懒总是更具诱惑,结果你就得不停鞭策自己。这些干扰应该排除掉。

A key part of playing the game is balancing your competing priorities with the state of your body. Just don’t leave yourself on autopilot, or you’ll never get anything done.

《人生》这个游戏的一个关键是要在达成各种目标和保证自己身体状态之间取得平衡。只是千万别点了“自动探索”然后放手不管,那样肯定什么事情都办不成的。

选择正确的任务

Choosing the right tasks at the right time is most of the game. Some tasks mostly affect your state, e.g.

这个游戏其实就是在恰当的时间选择恰当的任务,有些任务影响的主要是你的状态,举个栗子:

 

会有一些影响你的技能:

 

You need to put time into things that ensure a healthy state – like food and sleep – to keep your willpower high. And then you need to develop your skills with what you have left.

你首先得花时间保证自己的良好“状态”,吃饱睡足才能意志力满满。接着得把剩下的时间用来练技能。

Some skills are more valuable than others. Good ones can open up whole paths like a tech tree:

有些技能很有用,有些很鸡肋。好的技能可以为你打开新世界的大门,就像科技树一样:

 

Others are dead ends

有一些则是死路一条:

 

Combinations of skills are the most effective. It’s very hard to max out one skill to be the best – in fact, that’s often impossible. But it’s much easier to get pretty decent at lots of related skills that amount to something bigger, e.g.

把技能进行组合是最有用的。想靠一招鲜打遍天下无敌手其实不太可能。把一堆相关的技能都练到七成其实比把一招练得炉火纯青更容易,技能相辅相成则会让你功力大增。

 

See how psychology just helped you become both rich and attractive? You should study that.

It’s possible to play the game well almost anywhere, but it’s a lot easier in certain places. If you’re female and in the wrong country, for example, you can’t unlock many achievements.

The odds of anyone being born in their optimal location are virtually zero, so research your options, and consider moving early. Location is a multiplier to all of your skills and states.

看到没,心理学既能让你事业有成,又能助你情场得意。你得好好研究一下啦。

你身处的环境对你的状态好坏、技能高低、以及升级机会的大小都有持续的影响。

在地图的绝大多数地方,《人生》都能玩下去,不过在某些地方进行游戏会轻松很多。如果你是女性角色,又不巧出生在某些性别歧视严重的国家,那么很多成就你都没法解锁。

对任何一个玩家而言,一出生就处于最适合自己的地点的可能性几乎为零,所以你得研究一下各种出路,要换环境最好考虑尽早动身。地图位置可以给你的状态提供加成,也可以让你的技能效果大打折扣。

寻找伴侣

Attraction is a complex mini-game in itself, but mostly a byproduct of how you’re already playing. If you have excellent state and high skills, you’re far more attractive already. A tired, irritable, unskilled player is not appealing, and probably shouldn’t be looking for a relationship.

勾搭本身就是一个复杂的小游戏,不过你的吸引力很大程度上是由你之前的游戏方式决定的。你要是状态好,技能高,就已经魅力难挡了。你要是疲惫不堪,动不动就发火,技能还很蹩脚,别人肯定对你毫无兴趣,甚至你可能连寻找感情的资格都没有。

 

Early in the game it can be common to reject and be rejected by other players. This is normal, but unfortunately it can drain your state, as most players don’t handle rejection or rejecting well. You’ll need to expend willpower to keep going, and willpower is replenished by sleep, so give it time.

在游戏前期拒绝别人和被人拒绝都是常有的事。这很正常,但不幸的是你的状态可能因此一落千丈。无论是被拒绝还是拒绝别人的情况,大多数玩家都容易处理不好。你需要消耗意志力才能继续前进,意志力会在睡眠中恢复,你得慢慢来。

80% of finding someone comes down to being your most attractive self, which – like so much in life – just means putting your time in the right places. If you’re exercising, socialising, well nourished and growing in your career, you will radiate attraction automatically. The remaining 20% is simply putting yourself in places where you can meet the right people.

要找到对的人,80%取决于你能否成为那个最有魅力的你,要是你一直在锻炼身体,参与社交,吃得有营养,事业有进展,你会自动获得吸引力的光环。剩下20%只不过是在正确的地方出没,去遇见对的那个人。

钱啊钱

Later in the game you’ll have to manage a new resource called ‘money’. Most players will find money increases throughout the early game, but that this actually introduces more problems, not less.

游戏中期你得打理一种新的资源叫“钱”。大多数玩家发现在游戏前期,自己拥有金钱数量一直在变得越来越多,但这并不意味着问题都解决了,恰恰相反,你的麻烦才刚刚开始。

 

The most important rule of money is never to borrow it, except for things that earn you more back. For example, education or a mortgage can be worthwhile (but are not necessarily so, depending on the education or the mortgage). Borrowing to buy new shoes is not.

关于“钱”最重要的一点是:绝对不去借,除非借来的钱能为你挣回更多。举个例子,借钱上学或者按揭买房一般是值得的(但也不一定,值不值得还要看具体情况)。借钱买滑板鞋就不太聪明了。

采取什么样的策略取决于你在钱这方面有多少雄心壮志:

Not fussed about money.

衣食无忧

The low-stress strategy: simply live within your means and save a little for a rainy day. Be sure to make the best of all the time you save though, or you’ll regret it.

这是最轻松的策略:量入为出就好,再稍微未雨绸缪地存点钱。但一定要珍惜因为不去拼命工作而节省下来的时间,否则你一定会后悔的。

Well off.

生活滋润

Choose a career and environment carefully, and be prepared to move often to move up. You’ll need to invest heavily in matching skills, which will cost you time, and be careful not to abuse your state or you’ll burn out.

你得精心挑选你的职业和生活环境,随时准备转移阵地以求更上一层楼。你得投入大量的时间和精力对技能进行提升和搭配,小心别太勉强自己,没血了死撑着会挂的。

Mega rich.

富得流油

Start your own business. It’s almost impossible to get rich working for someone else. Riches do not come from work alone, they come from owning things – assets – that pay back more than they cost, and your own company is a powerful asset you can create from scratch. Compound your winnings into more assets, and eventually they can remove your need to work at all.

自己创业吧!为别人打工几乎不可能发财。财富不仅仅靠工作挣得,也来自你手里的资产,它们提供的回报大于成本。创业就是从白手起家开始,为自己累积一份强大资产的过程。若你能把你赚来的钱转化成优质的资产,到最后你就再也不用自己干活了。

老年

Your options change as the game progresses. Marriage and children will reduce your time and energy, and introduce more random elements into the game (“Emergency diaper change!”). This makes it harder to develop yourself as quickly.

Older characters usually have more skills, resources and experience, unlocking quests that were previously impossible, like “owning a house”, or “writing a (good) novel”.

随着游戏的进行,你的处境也会发生变化,结婚和养小孩都会消耗你的时间和精力,并将更多的随机元素引入游戏中(“突发事件:刚换的尿布又湿了!”)这让你没法像以前那样快速地提升自己。

年纪大一点的角色往往技能更厉害,资源更充足,经验值更高,所以他们能解锁一些年轻时无法领取的任务,比如买房子,或者写小说。

 

All players die after about 29,000 days, or 80 years. If your stats and skills are good, you might last a little longer. There is no cheat code to extend this.

所有的玩家都会在29,000天左右以后挂掉,这差不多是80年。要是你的状态比较好,技能比较高的话,你或许能撑久一点。不过并没有什么作弊码可以来给你续命。

At the start of the game, you had no control over who you were or your environment. By the end of the game that becomes true again. Your past decisions drastically shape where you end up, and if you’re happy, healthy, fulfilled – or not – in your final days there’s far less you can do about it.

在游戏的开始,你没法决定你是什么样的人,也不能控制周遭的环境。等游戏快到头的时候,你又会变得和一开始一样,渐渐失去掌控的能力和改变的机会。最后你落得怎样的下场,完完全全由你自己过去的选择决定。你可能很开心,很健康,很满足,也可能不是,一旦到了游戏的大后期,你就再也没多少机会翻盘了。

That’s why your strategy is important. Because by the time most of us have figured life out, we’ve used up too much of the best parts.

所以策略才这么重要,等到我们中的大多数摸索出来这游戏是怎么一回事儿的时候,大好时光早已一去不返。
