Mycroft Canada NS Posted September 14, 2014 Share Posted September 14, 2014 Hi.I know in this day, and age of Survival Games we tend to always think that we must have Zombie, Enormous Critters to contend with to give the game a reason for exsiting.Long Dark comes along, and offers up a solid reason for surviving but has added in the element of defending oneselves, and our next potential meal from animals fighting for every srcap of food which is realistic.Now what isn't realistic is the way people percieve all animals to be in the wild which now brings me to asking the developers a small question, and that is....Q: Will there be a chance of gaining the trust of an animal which will eventually allow you have him as an equal (companion)?What I mean is, if I come across a lone wolf, or mountain lion (I don't think this particular animal is in the game, and anyone familiar with Cats know that they can be very unpredictable), simply by how I approach the animal will make the difference on how he percieves me. For instance, I approach the lone animal in a kneeling position with my hand extended, approach slowly, and place a piece of uncooked meat on the ground, then back off wouldn't that show the animal I am willing to be approached?This is how it is done in the wild in real life or in part. Of course it wouldn't be the one time, you may see him or her keep their distance for awhile but tend to be seen more often as you move from one location to another.Especially in the wild a lone wolf is normally more cautious, and will not attack outright unless threatened (approach him in aggressive manner), and in most cases will simply run away.Now in a pack, the Alpha dictates the packs conduct, and it's demeanor, meaning they are more confident, and most likely will attack if they happen to see you as a corn dog on a stick.Anyway, just thinking while I was walking my dog.
