Hey Pancake if I can call you that, where is the best place to settle down I have been trying to find good hunting grounds (deer,wolf,bear,moose) and great views of the aurora. I just got to and looted the summit for my first time (almost died) but now what?

Lol! I have been called many things, some of them much worse than "Pancake", so sure! Pancake away!

Honestly, I can't tell you where to settle, if you are looking to homestead. It really depends on what locations "click" for you. Coastal Highway is rich in wildlife, and fishing. TWM and PV are rich hunting grounds as well, but every place has trade offs. Rich with wildlife usually also means "Wolf City" (The Coastal Townsite), or long distances between man-made shelters, maze-like landscapes, or typically awful weather (TWM and PV). Or the "Crossroads of Doom"- Mountain Town (Milton). Ect. It really all depends on what you like, and feel is most important. Do you like to forge? FM (my personal hell, DP,) and BR have them, but none have fishing, if you enjoy fishing.I love Desolation Point, my favorite. But many people dislike the small one-ended map, lack of fishing, and limited outdoor locations to avoid Cabin Fever. Coastal Highway and Mystery Lake, with their Lookouts, have great views from above, fishing, and tons of wildlife. Which often needs to be avoided, lol. CH has beachcombing for late(r) game as well. HRV is gorgeous, and tons of hunting, but a multi-level maze, with no man-made shelters and terrible weather at times. But some stunning views. Every region has its own pros and cons.

Try different areas. create new saves to check out different regions, and find the one that speaks to your soul.  :)

Okay. I just came from lonely light house lived there for 30+ days. I honestly need to move around more only have been to milton,TWM,DP,CH,ML,FM,BR(wintermute),and ravine but that was back in beta. I might need a tour guide.🤣 I might go to ML and work from from there. I might start a day log when I get there. Welp, Godspeed!

A lovely sunrise at the Lighouse in DP. One of the reasons DP is my favorite region in the game. You can only get these views here. :)

DP is my favorite, so far, too. I've only started in Mountain Town, Mystery Lake, Coastal Highway, and DP. It took me until day 5 or so of my current run (day 7, as of right now, maybe?) to realize I could get down from my lighthouse perch without crossing all the bridges and ridges. It's tricky, but I like the descent/ascent path on the little island before this one.

That said, after switching from the easiest mode to this custom variant of the easiest, and allowing animals to attack me, I've realized I will occasionally lose a day to recovery here and there. I trekked out on day 4 to reach the mainland from the lighthouse and got jumped by a wolf on the second island. It did NOT go well. I recovered eventually, but I lost a whole day to that fiasco. Regardless, I still love DP. There's a bear out here somewhere that's gonna be fun to deal with...

It's a stack of over 400 cartridges.  For whatever reason the game decided to use the model for an individual cartridge, instead of the box.

And ... How are you gonna pick them up ? 😄

Even though there is no turn at the corners of the mouth, Battery still appears happy.

So, yeah. I still hate FM, and it still hates me. But, I had to go in to get to BR anyway. So... we did some sightseeing...

Felt almost bad when I took Faceplant Fred's hacksaw. Almost...

All The Long Dark names fit so well and crack me up.  Have not heard 'Faceplant Fred' before but it is definitely going into the top ten.

Sheltered in St. Christopher's Church during a blizzard, listened to it die down as all the church windows lit up bright aurora green.

We got ourselves a situation here...  We've gotta Broken Arrow...

funny thing is, he already took a rifle round point blank in the face!  Either that or I just put a nice hole thru one of his antlers.  Anyways, finally got him on the fly as running by.screen_1996d526-40af-4c94-82e9-02e2ed85bc6b_hi.thumb.png.6efb97dd5961e3ab48a44f222e77fbb2.png

The arrow somehow suspended itself at the exact point of impact.  crazy huh?
