I'm not able to remove a battery from a car. Did one of the releases remove this action?

The one I removed in that screenshot did not light up green when I right clicked it under the hood at first, but I tried again, and it moved, no green until I tried to move it. (Until it was actually out of its spot under the hood...) It was a little odd, but it worked.

My understanding is that batteries cannot be removed from cars with dented fenders (which usually means any cars that have been in accidents), or trucks. I was mystified by this for a while, until I saw this thread and tried again with an undamaged car.

The experiment is complete.

The one point twenty one gigawatts needed has sent me back in time, by my rough estimates, two minutes.

That's me in the corner.

Only about Battery.

Battery all the way down.screen_bc93e6e1-0023-4702-9932-7cb263509b69_hi.thumb.png.604b9eef9165ba8a115c3931a198812b.png

After returning I noticed Battery fall.

Also the rifle is misplaced.

Wow.. y'all are crazy LOL. This thread is hilarious. Also, you have a lot of in-game time on your hands.

Now I need to go listen to Puppets, been a while! Well done, everyone. Especially you, Ice Hole, you're killing it. :coffee:

It feels neglected, due to your obvious show of favoritism toward Battery. 

It is simply trying to do something to get your attention, so you will love it too. 🥺

The Silent Hunter build introduced Battery to The Long Dark.

Battery is restrained unable to move.

Time Capsule .236 Silent Hunter 

After using the Time Capsule portal it had occurred to me that we shared a long time together but never could meet. 

With the Time Capsule portal open I will not have to wait twenty one months.   

The Penitent Scholar .349 released Battery from bondage.

The lightning bolt tattoo shows Battery's rebellious youthful nature

Battery still requires a walk before jumping in to inventory.

Battery loves the warm up.

At first I was not sure.

I just had to google and was reminded.

Great Scott it is about time travel too!

I grew up in SF, and my dad took me to the shooting of that scene in ST4 when I was a kid (yes I'm old). Columbus St in North Beach. Lifelong Trek fan since ST1. I'll never forget that day!

Thanks for jogging the memory, been a long time 🖖

There has been major changes happening around Pleasant Valley.  It all started with this plane crash.  Survivors were rescued from the crash site. After some time they built a little town.  Called it Thompson's Crossing.

They approached me one day offering vegetarian meals and bingo nights.  The suspicious side in me perked wide awake. 

Seems the Plumbous'R''Us store is not fitting in with there urban development plans and they are claiming the store for themselves.  They plan on selling vegetables locally grown.  Personally I think theses people are all crazy; do they not realize it is freezing and snowy.  How do they plan on growing vegetables?

Plan is to move away from all these people.  So I packed up Battery and set off for a new home.  Goodbye Plumbous'R'Us.

 

P.S.  I think Eric Handcartman was right these hippies are smelly and they don't respect any authority!

 

edit:

Almost two weeks porting Battery.  The route was surveyed planned modified, and still inefficient. The needs to be an increase in porter optimization.  The solution might lay in brewing several pots of coffee.

More than fifty cups of coffee are prepared.  The plan is to lug Battery all at the same time.  The previous method took at half day to port Battery to the destination.  

The identified problem was the return to base sprint.  Not using coffee meant that exhaustion set in quickly. 

The distance from the store to Misty Falls is quite far.  Battery must be walked until getting to the cavern when it decides to jump into the backpack.  Returning was the only time to sprint.  The time to recharge the sprint bar I would just walk.  This is where porter optimization is improved.

The idea is then to carry Battery gang as far as the sprint bar can take me which then becomes a check point.  Walk Battery while the sprint bar recharges and then set Battery down, sprint back for Battery.  After the Battery gang is at the check point the exhaustion level will leave me to rest for a full night.  Also drinking coffee to help sustain the sprint.

The Battery gang has made it to this new cave and the time to take Battery here has improved greatly.
 

The destination of Misty Falls caverns will be the setting for an experiment involving the containment of ectoplasmatic entities.  In the new Thompson's Crossing neighborhood something strange is going on.  Reports of endless steaming pots, levitating objects and self illuminating trophies.  Could be a business breakthrough, just needs the right advertisement.

Should make use of the new phone lines and go ahead and call out to the you who's out there.  Maybe have a catchy jingle too.

Battery has been delivered.

Nineteen days of porting fun.

Having Battery altogether means mobility will improve. 

 

Backpack == Batterypack

New destinations for the gang are being planned.  For now I am off to build the ecto-containment unit.
