CuteBeaver Posted November 1, 2014 Share Posted November 1, 2014 On this play-through I tried to survive using the snares and rabbits. I think realistically the weight is about right for a rabbit. I just question on how viable they are to actually snare. The calorie cost of finding the wood, then finding a dead dear and harvesting the guts, and then creating the snare itself, and also placing it, and checking on the snares makes this a very low reward activity... Results are not immediate, or assured, and when you do succeed the rabbit flesh is not very nourishing. Personally I think if snares could be re-used, but loose 25%-50% of their condition, instead of outright disappearing after the first time it would be a little bit less punishing. Id just like to give feedback on something I feel is not as rewarding as it probably should be. Instead of feeling elated when I caught a rabbit I start to dread crafting yet another snare from scratch.Id also like to be able to pick up the snare and the rabbit. Giving me the option to replace the previously used (less durable) snare on the ground. Its more realistic to be able to carry tiny game back to the cabin. Once indoors maybe use another menu option to gather the meat and hide from a rabbit similar to how we collect wood. If your planning on adding fishing later it would be useful to collect your fish and then bring them home for preparation. Either way I am loving the patch! I know its probably suicide to try and live just off rabbits but I feel we must try as E-Access Members. I will admit to cheating and eating the occasional candy bar because I haven't figured out a way to sustain myself entirely on rabbits yet. I was doing well scavenging from wolves, collecting guts and eating rabbits but overall the snares are really putting the nail in my coffin.
