<sigh> Another kill I can't reach

Recommended Posts

Ouch, bad luck! I guess next time you'll have to lure him a bit closer to shore before shooting.

Haha - at first I thought the skin-coloured object in the foreground was the object of attention, the bear carcass appeared as a boulder to me. So I was utterly mystified which kind of animal has been hunted here. I looked really hard, but couldn't make it out. Only after about two minutes did I take a closer look at the 'boulder'... :D

I'm not sure that it needs fixing.  It is quite possible for items to lie on the ice beyond a patch of thin ice. Admittedly I'd expect a bloody great bear to go through the ice if the ice couldn't bear my weight.

I'm not sure anything is really broken, so I don't see anything here that needs to be "fixed" either... sure it can be frustrating when this kind of thing happens, but I've always took it as a lesson to be more careful about how, where, and when to take my shots so this kind of thing isn't likely to happen.

:coffee::fire:
I mentioned something similar before...

I mean sure... it can be frustrating to hunt an animal, only to have that animal run far out on thin ice and die, and therefore waste time and resources on a hunt we can't profit from.  I just take it as an in-game life lesson to be more situationally aware and be careful of how, when, and where I take my shot.

My point.

Seems like a tough fix but maybe the easiest solution would have the carcass disappear entirely if stumbles to it's final resting place on weak ice.  At least that would remove the temptation.

Perhaps, but if the bear did just "fall though the ice," then it would be gone anyway... so it seems that it wouldn't really matter. :) The result didn't change... and I think the solution is more careful hunting practices (as I mentioned in my previous post).

:coffee::fire:
and I think that player behavior doesn't need to be fixed by a developer... so I still don't think there is anything about this that needs fixing on Hinterland's end.

Fix?

There's nothing to fix. You've just got bad luck.

I just tell myself the ice is to weak to support the bear and  my character.

We need a rope and hook style anchor item to allow us to pull our prey back to us in these sorts of situations!

Maybe... but I still think the better solution is just working out better hunting practices; particularly being mindful of these sorts of areas when deciding when/where to set up our shots.

:coffee::fire::coffee:
Sometimes the more critical component is choosing where we fight/hunt.

However, if the bear wasn't there, I would still fall through...

Bad luck, yes.  Fix?  You don't argue the point that a several hundred pound bear won't break through ice but I will?  If we could say "realism", this would not be realistic and actually is a punishment for the hard work we do to hunt the bear in the first place.

I started a similar thread a couple of years ago, siting that the ice will hold a several hundred pound bear, but will crack under the weight of a man and equipment.  The Devs responded saying that they were aware of the inconsistency and would look at potentially changing this particular game mechanic if it wouldn't be too problematic.  The fact that it is still the same tells me that the change would be too great a pain for the reward.  Unfortunately it looks like we will just have to live with the occasional out-of-reach kill.
