OoT Randomized Together

It was AndyNPC's idea, but I'm gonna set it up. We're gonna work together to complete an OoT randomizer. Look up how to set one up (do not ask about it here), and create a game with the following info:

Settings String: R5ARA8TUQKF9AKAAAB
Seed: BanjoThreeie2019


Here's some info on the settings I chose, with controversial decisions explained. If there are any disagreements on what settings were chosen, I'm open to discussion.

Note: you can change cosmetic settings, or Z-targeting settings, to whatever you like. Don't change anything on any other tab.

Spoiler:

MAIN RULES
  • The gates in the forest, kakariko, and the door of time are open from the start. More possibilities from the start!
  • You start with the Gerudo card, allowing you to walk freely in Gerudo Fortress from the start
  • Opening Ganon's castle requires all medallions, which are randomly placed. You can press the A button in the item menu to see where the medallions are.
  • I haven't shuffled the Kokiri sword. I personally don't think it's interesting or fun to run around with sticks all the time, at least for the purposes of what we're doing here
  • Weird egg, ocarina, and songs are all shuffled in with the item pool
  • Any merchant scrub could contain an important item, but it will always cost 10 rupees
  • Every shop has one slot that could contain an important item
  • You start with all compasses and maps. I don't think not having these items is interesting.
  • All keys are shuffled and could be anywhere in the world. This is a big deal because...
  • All gold skulltulas are shuffled in with the normal item pool. So any gold skulltula could contain a major item, and any chest could contain a gold skulltula

DETAILED LOGIC
  • Any reward up to 50 skulltulas could be an important item. If we're going to be grabbing random skulltula tokens, may as well make them useful!
  • The randomizer doesn't assume you can get nighttime skulltulas until you have the sun song.
  • The only quests on this page that might contains an item are Child fishing, adult fishing, and the biggoron sword
  • All the adult trade sequence items are in play
  • No speedrunning tricks are assumed necessary for completion
  • The logic doesn't assume that you can do lens of truth things without the lens of truth

OTHER
  • Tower escape, stealth section, and epona race are all skipped.
  • We can read hints from the stones of truth once we have the stone of agony
  • No text shuffled, difficulty normal
Are you really sure? Yes, I'm sure Clicking this link will show a major spoiler. Don't do it if you don't want to know! Show Me!


So let's have settings discourse before we start playing! Once we begin, we'll use this thread to share findings of important items.

Did you use version 3.0 of the randomizer or the current dev build? The dev build has a lot of features we'll want. Most importantly: you can switch boots with the d-pad.

If you don't have it yet, get it here: https://github.com/TestRunnerSRL/OoT...mizer/tree/Dev
You'll also need to install python in order to use the dev build. Once python is installed, just launch "gui.py" and you'll get the familiar menu.
EDIT: Yeah, looks like you used version 3.0 since the settings string is invalid. Also with the dev build you can even link a patch file so we can just apply the settings without the settings string and seed. Also make sure you post the four symbols that appear on the save select screen. They make sure we've got the same game going.

I don't want to require anyone to install Python or any of that jazz, so I was sticking with 3.0

Well, okay. Trust me though, once you try dev you won't want to go back.
Here's a link to 3.0 if anyone needs it then: https://github.com/AmazingAmpharos/O...mizer/releases
Also, here's what your title screen should look like if you've installed the seed correctly, (assuming I have): https://imgur.com/a/olyuTH4

Don't look at the spoiler log, Ganon will know.

I've done some preliminary exploration in Deku Tree. There's a free deku shield here, so don't bother buying one first. You'll have to climb past the wall skulltulas to get most of the stuff here, but it's easy to get past them so long as you stop moving when they turn purple. You'll definitely want the gold skulltula perched on the vines in the center pit. It's a bit tricky to hit it without a slingshot, but you can figure it out.

i played for a couple hours

couldn't find slingshot or ocarina, but completely forgot i could be adult link, so i haven't delved into him much

i got a piece of heart for an 8 pound fish (edit: as kid link), but i dunno if that's normal or not
i have 6 hearts total, found two full pieces and a handful of quarters

only 7 skulltula tokens so far, i think

i can already tell how insane this is, and it's so exciting

Can't play along with you guys on this device unfortunately, but I woke up with the Smash remix of Gerudo Valley in my head this morning.

When is Ocarina of Time ever going to not be relevant? It feels like never.

In the randomizer, an 8 lb fish as a kid gets you an item, and I think a 10 lb fish as an adult. I think the first fish is guaranteed to be good enough, also.

i found the ocarina and the goron bracelet! they're in the same general area, but i won't spoil where

getting the ocarina will require a bit of thought, like what andy alludes to in the deku tree

You guys are gonna get a bit of a headstart over me since I have to work, but I already found an ocarina, three warp songs, iron boots, Saria's Song, and the first wallet upgrade. I missed the strength upgrade, so I'll have to go back for that. For now though, I think I'll be exploring Death Mountain as child. I've also been into Spirit Temple, but there's nothing I can do there yet other than get a free key from the cutscene. If I can find boomerang and bombs then I can do all the kid side though.

Also was going to skip the Kokiri Sword just to spite it not being shuffled, but then I remembered we're on 3.0 and not dev so swordless fishing isn't fixed yet.
