Hotzn Posted July 12, 2015 Share Posted July 12, 2015 It's comforting to know that you're safe when going to bed in Camp Office, Trapper's Homestead or the Farmstead in PV. However, I like a game to keep me on the edge of my seat. So how about making bears occasionally visit our shelter at night? Our avatar would wake up in the middle of the night, saying something like "I think I heard something!"... all would be quiet, but then we would be able to hear something rummaging around the house, sniffing through the cracks, scratching at the windowframes... that would a bear.It's well possible that such nightly visits do not correspond with real natural bear behaviour, but so what? I would probably get really nervous, especially with all the updates to the game I would be afraid that the bear might actually enter. Extremely bold players might go outside, place the lantern somewhere and try to shoot the bear (verrry dangerous), while others would just crawl around inside the house, trying to check where the bear is at (or whether it's bear at all) and verifying it's not getting inside. Of course one would have to light a lantern or other light source. I would imagine that would be very spooky and atmospheric.This would also allow to remedy a problem that has become apparent with bears - they should not venture near buildings, because then it becomes too easy to hunt them (shoot once, slip inside, sleep, harvest). If they only come at night, this would be outweighed by the enormous risk of hunting a nearby bear in the dark.Of course, the next morning the player should find bear tracks in the snow around the house. If it didn't snow afterwards, maybe the tracks could even point the player into the direction where the bear lives? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
