Alrightey, i'll answer this stuff myself now. Happy to see the cool ideas sassafrassquatch has the coolest ideas ^^ Or maybe just the coolest way of describing stuff.
(I think that these are realistic and good choices, and possible to bring with me if I get stranded with a boat)1. You can take some stuff with you. Not a boat, ship, plane, raft or other device that can take you off the island. What would you bring? You have five objects to choose.
1) A set of knives(ranging from 2" blade to machete)
2) Nails. Lots of them. LOTS.
3) A high caliber quality hunting rifle with scope and repair/cleaning kit and lots of ammunition
4)A box with seeds (rice, potatoes, wheat, corn, herbs, spices, tobacco and other much-needed things).
5) A toolbox with the usual stuff in it. Mostly for woodworking.
Probably somewhere around Papua New Guinea/indonesia.2. What area of the world would you like to be stranded in?
I'd like a big island. At least a couple of square miles. There should be a sheltered bay with a big white beach where i'd build my stuff. There should also be mountains and cliffs, preferrably sandstone since it looks nicer and isn't slippery when wet. And it's easy to dig caves in because it's not as hard as ordinary stone. Otherwise the island should be heavily forrested with a few big clearings here and there.3. What does your personal island look like? Vivid descriptions, please.
Bamboo, fruit, wild and cute animals that I could eat. (Birds, rodents, some kind of beef animals that move in herds). There should be iron ore so that I could melt it down and make tools. (I know, there is probably no iron ore in sandstone, therefore I might change my mind about the stone on the island).4. What natural resources are available on the island?
There should also be lots of fish in the sea ofcourse. There should be some kind of tall trees also, otherwise it might be hard to fashion some kind of decent raft, planks and other stuff I might need. There should also be fresh water in a couple of places on the island that wouldn't kill or make me ill.
First off, i'd build myself a shelter. Effort number two would be to get myself a field and plant my seeds. Then i'd build a place safe from animals where I could store food. When I have done this and some hunting and gathering, I would build myself a more permanent house facing south, close to the beach in my bay. I would also build myself a hunting cabin on higher ground and store some food and tools there just to be safe. I would also build myself a boardwalk/wooden platform with a pier for fishing and mooring my boats.5. What would you build on your island?
I'd construct a small raft, i'm thinking something like a canoe. And also a bigger wooden boat with one mast. I could make sails from animal hides. Since doing stuff like this would be my only job and fun (indeed very fun though), i'd probably build an insane amount of stuff not mentioned here.
I'd build a bunch of traps for wild animals all over the island and mark the places very thoroughly so that I don't walk into one by accident. (Snares, pits etc). I'd fashion a bunch of nets with my insane fisherman-skills. (). What devices, tools and stuff would you construct? To what purpose would you use them?
I would also build a catapult, but that would just be for fun Preferrably a roman onager construction. I'd probably use it for mindless destruction or something. Or maybe throwing big stones against a mountainside until it became a cave
Wild animals, and preferrably a few that are aggressive, otherwise it wouldn't be fun to go hunting. Like boars or something.7. Should there be wild animals on your island or do you want to survive entirely on fish and vegetables?
