Need some help with a caption for this...  So far,  all I can come with is...    Boink?!?

that arrow is actually floating magically in the air where it hit the bear as he was walking to the left of the screen.  at the point of impact he teleported into the background and is now heading to the right.  broke my arrow too.  

The bear used the force. The aurora did some crazy things to that bear.

Just looking at old screenshots from way back when... and I found the one that made me fall in love with Desolation Point, forever. Yeah, it's old, but damn, it is beautiful. My first screenshot ever of the Lighthouse, I think.

My game crashed when capturing a screenshot so I have nothing to share...but the image was kind of sad.  A blood trail and bear footprints, leading to a dead bear, just outside the mouth of his cave.  All he wanted to do was get home, but even his last wish was denied.

Edit: Happy ending though.  When I loaded back up and went to re-hunt that bear, he dropped in one shot.  Merciful.

Used to spend days on end at Desolation Point getting screenshots, and camping atop the Lighthouse.  Slept in short intervals and inside during storms to be awake for sunrise, sunset, and aurora.  There were often hours of fog.  Did firewood gathering and hunting during heavy snows.  When the time came for a change of scenery, and to fish up more lantern fuel, I'd have many pictures, cured pelts, and broken arrows to take back to Coastal Highway.

Getting ready to leave this place:

I've been on FM for nearly two months, mapping out the region completely. Here is the result:

The only two regions I have left that don't look like this are Winding River and Pleasant Valley. This particular guy has been wandering Great Bear now for ~690 days. My current plan (I'm now at the Camp Office) is to continue on up through the dam to Winding River and mapping that region, and then going to PV and mapping all of that region as well. I expect that by the time I'm done I'll have eaten another couple of months, and at that point I'm taking the rest of my saplings and heading up to TWM for a while.

Wait, what's that, Santa's village?

And then I remember I still had some grudge against the guy in a Coke costume. We all got the wrong present one time or another.screen_cc26b0e0-3577-49ff-8100-8f3669a5a76e_hi.thumb.png.1c75d2d65dd16422f26b5624fa6a83ee.png

Dawn, and then Sunset, in Pleasant Valley...

(As I head off to Timberwolf Mountain for the first time...)

Hanging around the water cooler at work?

I recently loaded up an old save game  where  I had previously filled the bed of this pickup truck with water bottles.  At that time, the bed was devoid of snow.  After the last few updates and touch ups this is what the back of the bed looks like now with snow on it.   Thru happenstance this view just struck me as feeling very immersive, like that's what you would expect to see if you actually came across it in game.  Either that, or wow, this is some good sativa...

For a game set in a boreal forest during mid winter, it's actually quite a colourful game.

The clear, cold nights in HRV lend themselves to some great Aurorae!

Picnic, anyone?
Just my field rations while I tear down the junk at the rural crossroads...but I mean talk about a nice picnic spot.  I'd eat there IRL.  Watching traffic go by, listen to the birds.

Woke up one morning to a world that looks like this:

I just had to take snapshots of this. You can see the pictures slowly becoming brighter too as the day emerges.

Passing time, unable to sleep, waiting for morning before going off to Timberwolf Mountain for the first time... Here's an aurora from the heights of Pleasant Valley:

Some Winding River randos:

This was good mapping weather. Looking up the river towards the dam.

This was later when I was ferrying stuff from ML to PV. The weather adds just a touch of melancholy.

I was in WR for three days. One of them started with a pea soup fog; a little later on it burned off so I went up to the dam to pick stuff up.

As I moved my stuff through the cave to PV, I had occasion to hunker down in the cave and make some water and cook up some venison. It was my last trip through the cave. I stopped to look back at the cooking fire, which would burn down soon:

One-shot bear kill. Judging by the arrow's position the poor bear would have died by starvation, and it probably committed suicide by force of will.
