Make Broken Railroad less empty

Not every location is meant to have every feature.  Places with forges (for example) have other things "missing" (in my opinion) in order to maintain a balance... so no one location is objectively better than all the others.  ...what I mean to say, is that every place has its drawbacks.

I'd like a cave to be added to the region near the entrance or something.The right part of the map quite empty.

I agree, I asked for one several years ago I think...   I got caught in a sudden blizzard and the wind kept moving. ..

BR has a decent amount of structures for it's size. It's such a small region that you could consider it a transition between lower Great Bear and The Far Territory. 

A fishing hut wouldn't make a whole lot of sense in that area, but I do wish you could fish in that pond outside the maintenance shed. Seems to be about the same size as Unnamed Pond in ML.

You can make manual fishing holes in the large pond below the Maintenance Shed, but it seems a bit finicky at times, and the bear and wolves that roam that pond can make it risky in any mode other than Pilgrim. The pond at the Hunting Lodge is just too small and too shallow for fishing. It seems like it is just a scenic thing, for hunters relaxing at the picnic table  in front of the lodge, after a day of canned hunts. Or a shallow watering hole meant to draw wildlife in to make shooting at them easier for the hunters who were there for easy trophies.

Huh, I tried and I couldn't find the spot. Must be a small area that is suitable. I'll have to try again. If you can fish there then I think BR is perfect lol

Don't try on white ice or near snow-covered ice- try on blue ice, the deeper blue, the better. And, like I said- it can be very finicky, so it's never something I count on. And on Stalker- I am not risking the bear and the wolves there to sit out on the ice to fish- tip-up only if I can get it to take. *If*.

Just went in and tested this again (though not in BR)- and my apologies- light blue ice seems to be better, thicker ice (whitish) seems good too. I could not get a green fishing hole in darker blue ice at all. So forget what I said there, and apologies again. Look for thicker ice, not thinner ice.

not gonna lie....I may be the only one that loves Broken Railroad...

I do too,so you're not alone lol... Just a cave at the fm  end would be nice too....  Admittedly when I asked for one last time it wasn't received very well then either😁

It's not too far to go to the cave up on Marsh Ridge assuming you've tossed down the rope. You can also goat up to the right from the rail tunnel in FM and make it to the open cave near the broken transmitter too. But yeah, when I'm shuttling stuff from BR I usually make a snow cave at the FM end. The weather almost never holds long enough on interloper. Using the shortcut across the landslide in BR does make it a little faster. Now if only there was a shortcut to TFT from BR instead of the Ironmanesque trek....
