Burning Bridges Posted October 30, 2014 Share Posted October 30, 2014 I had been looking forward to the update, but I think too many of the many new mechanics are not balanced.1. wolfesA wolf attacked me 100m from trappers Homestead while I was browsing through the first container. Another wolf had just killed a deer, minutes after I left the house, right in front of it.If I extrapolate from this, I will be more concerned with fighting wolves than anything else in the game. I am all for the game becoming harder and more of a struggle for survival, but not a Deathmatch with predators.2. temperaturesI also noticed that my cold meter was climbing like crazy while it was barely -13C, and I lost condition just from the moment I went outside. Will Mackenzie was already a wimp before the update but this is completely absurd. I can attest you that we often have -10C to -15C here in Germany and it is not life threatening at all. I even walked to school in such temperatures (ca 1h) when I was a kid of 10 and did not suffer a condition loss. Yes, someone should seriously check the temperature meters. If you want to make the game harder, make the temperatures lower (-50C), but dont turn the protagonist into a wimp. -15C is cold but can still be fun to be outside, -30C is really bad but will not kill you, -50C really life threatening. I am beginning to suspect the game is mixing up Celsius and Farenheit. -14F is -26C so that would make a whole lot more sense. The coldest temperature ever recorded was -94.7C (-135.8F) on Antarctica. Such a temperature would probably kill a person in minutes. But if you give me 500$ for spending 8h in -15C I would probably win the bet, and have a nice day outside. And I am by no means a superman. Someone from Siberia could probably sleep outside in such temperatures, and still take a cold bath in the morning. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
