Crows and Ravens

Recommended Posts

Can you tell the difference between these two black birds. 

 

The Long Dark has a timberwolf being introduced in an upcoming update.  My suggestion is add theses larger black birds and make them more dangerous then the crow.  Instead of help you locate a fresh kill the raven chases off the crows and then start to consumes the carcass.  Maybe have them track the player waiting for an opportunity to take from a players stockpile.  This animal could even be affected by the aurora and attack the player.

Might be good for adding another asset to be cautious of, but if it can attack you, that means it can interact with you...and you with it. If it can attack you, you should be able to kill it, and by extension skin and eat it.

Ravens are similar in weight as the rabbits are (in game), though a little larger (in real life). Carnivorous birds (raptors) taste terrible, for the record. Would be a great addition if it was paired with being able to use feathers (or down, just to separate crafting mats) and cloth to make a lining inside the wolf/bear/moose coats that add extra wind and cold protection to the crafted clothing. I think that would have the potential to be abused though, so maybe make the Ravens a special spawn event similar to how the moose spawns, but you need to have 3 or more of the events to be able to craft the down lining.

Could be an interesting addition.

It would also perhaps revive the need for torch brandishing as a way of scaring off aggressive birds? Especially if they're actually attacking you.
