  1. Day 1 My soul found gravities grip, slamming back into the empty human shell of my body. My face stung, my eyes seem glued shut, lungs barely wheezing, bones brittle, numb…..beyond cold. The wind howling its laughter, seemingly hell-bent on keeping me covered in powder, shivering face down in the mountain side, some distance from the sea plane wreck. A howl erupts down from the saddle below, “Oh God NO!” my mind screams, begging the neurons in my brain to send signals to the body to get up and move…NOW! A deep grown of pain and a shudder of intense electricity shoots through all my extremities, on one knee now, pushing with frozen bare hands, unsteady, staggering, legs punching deep holes in the snow. Struggling and occasionally failing on all fours, I managed to reach the top of the ledge….”OH SHITTTTTT!!!!”, barely croaked from my throat as I slip and roll down the other side of the ridge, legs and arms flailing while the body summer saults down the mountain side, suddenly a flash of light, intense pain….blackness, cold, hopeless? Eyes open once more and gaze into the face of frozen mirror of horror, another survivor? His arm stretched out, frozen in midair, as if reaching out to someone or something. Quickly I seize upon his corpse, tearing off his pack and jacket. Fingers cannot articulate the zippers, my teeth and tongue will have to do, “Thank God”, I exclaim as the frozen slushy soda flows down my raw throat along with the solid brick granola bar which feels like eating shale rock. Feeling some life come into my veins, I strip the boots and wool socks from the deceased, “You won’t need these anymore my friend, God speed….a little late”. Matches, a hunting knife and a half eaten candy bar, if I could cry for joy I would, but cannot afford to right now, have to get moving, must find shelter soon. Again, the howl of wolves become my evil task master, fear of being eaten alive my motivation….my adrenaline. Very little breathe smoke leaves my lungs as my core temperature begins to become dangerously low, head ache, nausea, blurred vision…. a shadow in the distance does not look normal. Mother Nature does not make straight lines, creaking of wood boards in the distance, is it a house? An old cabin? My heart leaps with excitement…. anticipation…. I can hear the muffled steps speedily approaching from behind, “RUN DAMN YOU, RUNNNN!!!”, once again the mind beckons thunderously. Growls signal a successful stalk, deep heaving of lungs announce dominance, I look back just as the wolf leaps towards me, slamming my body through the door of the building. I kick and scream, no sound leaves my cracked and peeling lips, the wolf’s fur begins to warm my fingers as I grasp and grip his mane, desperate to keep his canine teeth at bay. Teeth gnashing, hot saliva covers my face, claws tear at my chest… suddenly, from deep within, my animal instinct kicks in, RAGE AND FEAR mixed into a murderous solution of premeditated intent, my lips part and draw back, grimaced teeth glaring back at the carnivore, as if I had become the animal, the predator….. I am UNLEASHED! The wolf’s eyes sees its end to late, fear registers in its eyes radiating understanding of impending doom and demise as my hands find purchase, the audible crack of neck bone echoes inside the door way like a shotgun blast, a final whimper is barely audible as I roar like a lion…..
  2. +1 on different packs, this is a must ADD to the game.
  3. Instead of bears, how about Yeti/Bigfoot encounters! They can throw rocks, pound on cabins at night, yell at night (Gawd that would send shivers up my spine!!), leave foot tracks in snow, have dens with loot! Just an idea since it is a legend of the Canadian woods and would fit in nicely!
  4. First, I love this game!!! My hat off to the Dev's!!! Idea #1: Please add harvesting of CATTAILS for insulation, fire tinder and carbohydrates. For example, if the head of the plant is dark brown it is insulation. If the stalk is yellow it is tinder plug. If the stalk is green it is carbohydrate. Idea #2: The game needs a .22LR rifle or pistol, Please!!! Light weight(2lbs), loot for a brick of ammo of either 25/50 rnds or even finding loose rounds, either wood stock or an AR-7 version or something similar, bolt action with detachable magazine. Then you have to find the ammo, magazine and rifle. If no magazine, you have to hand load each shot. If you have magazine, then you can load five rounds at a time. Perfect for bunnies or other small game and effective on wolves with say two shots or one shot for hitting the head, say under 15 meters. Same for deer, head shot only kill with the .22LR. Maybe add an old " 2x power scope" to be a rare find!!!!! Lead bullet and then jacketed bullet hollow point rounds (Super Rare). The lead would be common, hey maybe find lead wheel weights we can melt down and pour into cast at the crafting table. The jacket bullet would have more power and be a sure kill while the lead may have a probability of failing to kill, but wound and leave a blood trail for us to follow. Idea #3: Rotting meat or fresh meat can be harvested for either grease or oil (Tallow)! It would be nice to see candles or allow us to craft an oil lamp out of a orange or grape soda can or a rare mason jar or use the animal oil in the current lamp!!!! Grease could be required to assist in metal upgrades or repairs or even sharpening!!!!! Idea #4: I REALLY HOPE the Dev's will listen to this one, I would love to see an ammo can stove in the game! Allows for cedar and fir woods to be harvested like news paper into smaller pieces that can be burned in the ammo can stove for decent burn times. It is portable and convenient AND the ONLY way to have a fire when the wind blows, that way we can cram up into nooks of the rocks in emergencies or on long treks in the woods. Should have a section or two of chimney, maybe a few empty soda cans, nice sections of chimney can be (Super Rare)?! Idea #5: If the game ever has vehicles (airplanes, cars etc...) allow harvesting of motor oil & gas as fire starter, electrical wire for snares, tire rubber for repairing shoes, seat foam for insulation to repair or improve coats, vinyl for repairing or improving or constructing backpacks, DC battery and head lights to have light!. Just a few ideas I feel would make the game even more fun and accommodating. OH! One more, allow harvesting Aspen trees, very rare, for medicinal purposes to replace painkillers if needed and or other plants.... Conifer tree needles can provide a hot tea to ease food poisoning! ONE MORE IDEA, Smoke jumpers camp! The guys who fight forest fires might be found frozen to death OR one hanging from a parachute stuck in a tree! Para cord for snares, parachute for cloth or crafting a portable tent, he/she may have an ice axe, rappelling gear, flare gun with flares etc...
  5. +1 Freezing rain would be HELL on earth!! Luv the ideas!
  6. Just wanted to drop in and say a huge THANK YOU to the dev's of this game!!!!!!!!!! You guys have gotten it right and I hope you will listen and do what the fan base is asking for. The "Survival" genre is a massive chuck of the current video gaming world and many of us are, myself included, are looking for a game that challenges us in the wild, rather than hack and slash or run and gun. Again, thank you for offering this AWESOME game early for us ALL and I really do hope you will listen and provide what the paying customers want. I have seen too many developers try and fail and i have invested and been let down, but I am hoping you guys will make this game legendary!
