    Bug oder Feature?

    Hallo Keto, bitte entschuldige die späte Antwort. Ich war in den letzten Wochen kaum im Forum aktiv, da ich erst beruflich einige Wochen in den USA war und dann umgezogen bin. Falls dich die Antwort noch interessiert: Nein, Schlafen gehört zu den ganz wenigen Vorgängen, die man nicht mit ESC abbrechen kann. Wenn man draußen schläft (selbst an vermeintlich windgeschützten Orten), ist es daher sehr empfehlenswert, immer nur 2-3 Stunden auf einmal zu schlafen. Die Windrichtungen ändern sich regelmäßig und viele Orte (u.a. hohle Bäume oder besagte Scheunen) sind aus bestimmten Winkeln dann plötzlich doch nicht mehr 100% windgeschützt. Ich nehme an, es steckt Absicht dahinter - die Scheunen haben ja ziemlich schiefe Bretter und viele Lücken, durch die der Wind sicherlich hindurchwehen kann. In den Fischerhütten (die ja auch deutlich bessere Wände haben) machst du dein Feuer zudem in einem Ofen, wo es sicherlich besser geschützt ist als auf dem Boden einer zugigen Scheune.
  2. Well, as food and ammunition are abundant anyway (especially since the introduction of stone throwing) I see no reason not to keep my calorie bar full all the time. I have no intention to go for a thousands-of-days-game, so it makes no difference at all for me whether I feed on a deer for three days or three weeks. (Meaning I know I cannot run out of means to acquire food no matter which playstyle I use). That being said I prefer to keep my hunger bar full as it requires me to play a bit more actively. I'm not interested in 'optimising' calorie consumption to survive as many days as possible with as little hunting trips as possible.
  3. Broken Railroad ist in der Sandbox vorhanden, Milton hingegen ist aktuell (noch) nicht erreichbar. Ob sich letzteres mal ändern soll, weiß ich leider nicht.
  4. Does anyone know for sure which skills are included in this achievement on Interloper? (Only Carcass Harvesting, Firestarting, Cooking, Ice Fishing, Mending & Archery?) Or does it also include Firearms and is thus impossible to get on Interloper? And what about the other (non-journal) skills like Sharpening, Repairing and Rifle cleaning - those aren't included, right? I would really like to know whether it's worth trying to get this achievement on Interloper as I would definitely find it annoying to get everything to level five only to learn the achievement doesn't unlock because it also includes rifle firearms.^^
  5. Es ist normal, dass du im Storymode bis zu einem bestimmten Punkt der Geschichte von Episode 2 keine Auroras siehst. Sobald du selbiges Event durchgespielt hast, kommen sie dann auch im Storymode zufällig vor.
  6. Thanks for sharing these informations and your thoughts about the launch with us, Raphael. As a great Sandbox fan I'm especially happy to hear Survivor mode is going to get more attention again in the future. And I for one think the team did a great job with Wintermute. The launch may not have been perfect, but it went pretty well overall in my opinion. The first steps are always the most difficult ones - and you guys really did an amazing job releasing the game on that many platforms at once. Enjoy your well-deserved holidays and recharge your batteries!
  7. Die Screenshots sind aus dem Survivor Mode - du sprichst aber gerade vom Storymode. Da läuft alles etwas anders.
  8. Was genau steht denn in deinem Tagebuch? Der Ort Perseverance Mills (ich nehme mal an, das ist in der deutschen Übersetzung dann "Ausdauermühle") wird im Spiel bislang nur erwähnt - er ist aber weder implementiert, noch sollst du dort hingehen.
  9. Jopp, tut sie. Nicht jede Nacht, aber durchaus relativ häufig sogar. Hier sind zwei meiner bisherigen Lieblings-Screenshots:
  10. Sorry, I don't remember it if meat ever really lost weight. Only that I always liked the idea of foxes being introduced which might steal rabbits from your snares and meat/fish dropped on the ground outdoors. But even in this regard I was just thinking about losing the whole piece at once, not parts of it.
  11. I'm not offended, I just wanted to point out it's nonsense. And I personally have never heard about your 'scientific community respect meter' either except at the TV series "The Big Bang Theory". At least in my field of work and scientific surrounding, the 'respect meter' (if you want to put it that way) depends on how many papers with which impact factors you publish, not in which science you made your first degrees. There's a good reason why the PhD - or Dr. rer. nat as it's called in Germany - is not tied to any scientific field in particular. Anyone with this degree is expected to be able to teach themselves whatever method may be required for their work, no matter their personal background. Pharmacologists can potentially do their PhD in genetics, biologists in pharmacokinetics, Chemists in Immunology - there's no hard exclusion criterium for anyone not to do their PhD in whatever field they want as long as they have the basic knowledge to deal with he required methods and tasks. I have inter-disciplinary people all around me - it's seen as an advantage to have people with different backgrounds working together here. And your example of the biochemist being preferred over the biologist in each and every case thus doesn't apply here in Germany either. Employers (of Post-Docs) over here primarily check the number and quality of your publications as well as your personal previous experiences in the field and of course your PhD grade (yes, we get grades for our PhD work and thesis over here). Employers usually don't care much whether you got your first degrees in Biology, Chemistry or Pharmacology. If you've been successfully publishing (preferably high-impact factor) papers in the past in whatever field they want to find an employee in, they'll invite you to a job interview and check your knowledge/experiences at first hand no matter what B.Sc. you may or may not have done in the beginning. Just like they're usually not much interested in your high-school-courses either. If you try to apply for a job immediately after your B.Sc. (which would be madness in Germany as nobody would ever employ you anyway due to way too little practical experience) your example might be true, but for everyone who got their summa cum laude (s.c.l.) or magna cum laude (m.c.l.) PhDs, the primary academic education is not particularly relevant any more.
  12. *pulls both off their high horses and puts them on donkeys* Pff.. what you're describing about hippies collecting gnats in the forest is not even remotely what average biologists are doing. It makes as much sense as saying 'Chemists are odd white-haired guys developing explosives who are only happy if something in their lab blows up at least once a week'. You two (at least @Thrasador) seem to be pretty unaware what biologists are actually doing. Less than 2% of all biologists are working in the field of ecology (where they may really run around outdoors and collect whatever organisms in a small portion of their time). The remaining 98% are working in the lab, either doing basic molecular biology research (e.g. regarding transduction cascades, metabolism, chronobiology, epi-genetics, etc.) or they're working somewhere in the biomedical field, researching the molecular basis of cancer development, autoimmune diseases, pathogenic infections and whatever other disease you can imagine. I for one e.g. made two B.Sc.s (General Biology & MolecularBiology) and then specialized in virus immunology (t cell reactions in chronic viral infections) during my M.Sc. in Biomedicine. And now I'm using this background knowledge to manipulate blood brain barrier endothelial cells (lentivirally-delivered Crispr/Cas9 plasmids to knock out different S1P receptors ) for an in vitro model of the blood brain barrier. Which is relevant e.g. for the development of multiple sclerosis, stroke or Alzheimer's Disease. Not exactly collecting gnats. That being said, I'm working together with people from whatever background you can imagine (medical doctors, pharmacologists, biochemists, biologists, informaticians and technicians who don't even have academic degrees at all) and it certainly taught me how much it's worth to utilize each other's strengths instead of looking down upon each other. I may not know as much about drug kinetics as our pharmacologists, but while they might help me in this field, I can e.g. help them with the genetic backgrounds of their mice or blood FACS analysis. And our technician is able to pipet qPCR plates both faster and more accurate than both of us. In the end, it's not about the name of your degree, but about what you're capable of doing. And the different fields of science with their different specializations all contribute one way or another, at least in my field of work.
  13. Manche (optionalen) Quests werden auch erst freigeschaltet, wenn du genug Vertrauen bei ihr aufgebaut hast. Sie zu beklauen ist daher nicht sehr empfehlenswert!
  14. Happy to have you back, Dr. Cekivi! And big congratulations!
  15. @Patrick Carlson or @Mel Guille could you maybe contact someone from the Dev team who can verify if that's possible? ( Windows clock malfunctions being connected to odd rng outcomes?)
