I like DUST but I think it gets boring after hours of doing the same thing all the time. I know it appeals to a hardcore roleplayer survivalist, but to me, I don't play it for the same reason I won't play alt start mods, because I want to do quest, learn more about the story, and have plenty to do.
Definitely play this on your alt save, it's a great mod and I'm a total tool for giving it such bad criticism, because it's a great mod. Lots of time, effort,blood sweat and tears went into it and I'd feel bad if I didn't be fair with it. It's fun and can occupy you for however long you take to complete it.
