  1. I'm sorry that I'm not a fan of the "you will know better next time" answer. I would like to think that smart players could play through the game without dying once. I think that having to learn something "the hard way" like this is a poor game design choice. Going straight into a harsh blizzard like that will most likely kill every player that isn't already familiar with the location of the other entrance.
  2. This is my thoughts exactly. Even if it really was a 1 way door with special magnetic locks or what have you, how hard it is to stick something in the door? It's not like we don't have enough sticks in our inventory! :lol:
  3. It's NOT a bug - the one way doo0r is by design. You need to find another way back in. Why in the world would this be intentional to have a one way door? That sounds extremely silly to me! What if there was a full blown blizzard already going outside and I couldn't see more than 2 feet in front of my face? Normally any sane person would just go back inside. If this is intentional, then I almost consider this to be a small booby trap, because you have no indication that you will not be able to go back through the door.
  4. I left all of my stuff in dam and went outside. I realized I couldn't get back in and I just about had a panic attack! Thankfully I was able to quit and load which put me back inside. I'm reporting this as a bug because I very well could have died from this and I would have been extremely discouraged. I had a little food with me, but it was the middle of the night. One simple storm could have ended me. Full video is here:
  5. I think some parts of the wolves seem well made, while others parts need work. I had a wolf scare me as he seemed to be charging straight for me, but then I realized he was just chasing a rabbit. He didn't seem to care that I was 5-10 feet away from him. I guess I considered that to be a well made mechanic because he was way to busy eating the rabbit to worry about me. Other times the wolves seem poorly made when I saw a wolf walk in a straight line and then do a 180 degree turn and start walking back the other way because it had walked to the end of its patrol area path. Wolves feel a little fake or rigged when they do something like that. I have only taken down about 5 wolves so far (with 2 missed shots and been attacked). I don't have a ton of experience in this, but there was one pathing problem that bugged me. I was trying to sneak past a wolf by a derailed train cart. I knew a wolf was nearby and I was almost directly above him on an overhanging ledge. The wolf walked up a very steep side that I personally couldn't walk up. He had his back to me, but he instantly turned around when I had vision on him again. He ran straight up the hill then came onto the ledge I was perched on. He was going crazy with his zig zags as he charged at me. It was nearly impossible for me to get a decent head shot. I missed my shot and he injured me pretty badly. My other headshots or misses seemed pretty fair with some slight zig zags.
  6. I've been wondering about the mechanic for wildlife as your harvesting meat. I'll have to do a test later on, but I'm pretty sure they still move around while your doing things. Maybe there is a mechanic that keeps wildlife from getting close while we are busy. Maybe we have just been getting lucky. I'll do a couple tests and figure that out so I know for sure. They do still move around, but it's at the same speed as they would if you were just standing there. Say it takes 30 secs of real time to harvest a complete deer carcass. If you just stand there doing nothing, in 30 seconds of real time, only a couple of minutes of game time passes. But when harvesting several hours pass. But the animals move the same distance in either case. Ah, thanks so much for clearing that up for me. I won't be quite so paranoid while skinning animals now. lol
  7. It's not as unsafe as you might think. Yes, the time is sped up for 10 min, but the wildlife doesn't move any faster. Same with harvesting a deer carcass. Harvesting 9kg of meat, the skin and 2 gut takes several hours, but the other animals hardly move during this time. I've been wondering about the mechanic for wildlife as your harvesting meat.

  8. I've already mentioned this on another form, but this idea desperately needs to be implemented. I would like a "cook all" button rather than a option to cook multiple venison. Cooking 1 piece of venison, rabbit and wolf meat still sounds a little tedious. Maybe we could get pots or frying pans as items that we can find and cook multiple things from the same fire as long as we have ways to do it? Maybe be able to cook 3 pieces of venison in 1 frying pan? People don't need pots or pans to cook their food though. Maybe that would be the benefit of being of having pots and pans? To be able to cook multiple things at once? One solution I've seen will allow a player start cooking multiple things, but they can walk away or continuously check the progress of the food. If they wait to long, the food will become burnt. It would still be edible, but may loose some calories from their meal. I personally like this solution because wolves are still walking around if you are cooking outside. I haven't had this happen to me, but I'm constantly paranoid that a wolf will sneak up on me while the time flies as I heat up my food.
  9. True, but we're talking TLD not RL and in TLD fueling a fire with only sticks is a perfectly viable way of keeping a fire burning for a long time. It does require a lot of clicking though, that's the only reason I can think of to use logs. This may be true, but there is a good argument that your character could simply be waiting for the 1st stick to almost burn out before putting on the 2nd stick into the fire. I think their current system is smart. Could you imagine being cold, tired and stuck outside in TLD? You would need to wake up every 6 minutes to put another stick on the fire? I seriously wouldn't be interested in playing this game if there was this much micro-management. As for breaking down branches - I completely agree with all the comments. It is not time efficient and I am all about making every second and every calorie count! Not only is it inefficient, but it can be an extremely risky thing to do! You make 10 minutes fly by and a wolf might have moved closer to you while you were breaking it. 2 stupid sticks is simply not worth the risk. It needs to take 5 seconds and give more sticks.
  10. To put it as simply as possibly - Make every second count. I don't care that I don't have any way to see in the dark and that I'm trapped in a house and can't get out until the sun comes up. If I'm not tired I will repair my clothes or harvest cloth from worthless clothes. I will sort though my inventory and try to plan out my next move. I purposely plan on having something to do when its pitch black and I can't see anything. I do have those times where I feel like I'm wasting time while I am waiting for a storm to pass, but that just encourages me to be more efficient when I have good weather.... which usually leads me to making stupid mistakes and getting myself killed.... lol
  11. I didn't expect to be so close to death for so long. After the plane crashed, I wandered aimlessly trying to find any signs of a house or cabin. I was freezing to death and had to find something warm soon. The only thing I was able to find was a house that was ripped in half, but barely still standing. I was able to start a fire there, melt some snow for water and get some much needed sleep. I woke up and stumbled though the darkness trying to find a couple sticks to put in my fire. I slept for a few hours, but now I was hungry and completely out of food. It was hard to leave the half-burned down house because I knew I would quickly start freezing again. After climbing a few more hills, I tried to decide which direction looked the most promising. A few minutes later, I found a man that seemed to have frozen to death, but he had a bow right next to him with an arrow! I cheered with happiness and set off to find something to hunt. Sadly, I couldn't see any animals, but I desperately continued hunting. I continued to wander aimlessly, minutes away from starving and freezing to death. Just when I was about to give up, I stumbled upon a large cabin. I stepped into the cabin, but it was to dark to anything. I lit 2 of my 5 precious matches while I was searching the cabin. I luckily found a lantern! I quickly turned it on and greedily ate anything I could get my hands on in the cabin. I drank some water, found a bed and went to sleep. I woke up the next morning, shocked to find that I had already eaten all of the food in the cabin. Not only that, but I was already starting to get hungry again. I left the cabin in search of more food. I found a derailed train and started searching for supplies when I heard a growl nearby. A wolf was charging at me! I used my bow and pulled back my only arrow and nailed it right in the head. I breathed a sigh of relief as it went down! I pulled out my arrow and started to skin the wolf. After I looted the train cart, I decided to head back to the cabin. I once again heard growling. I drew my bow as another wolf charged me. I luckily nailed this wolf in the head as well. I pulled out my arrow which looked like it would start to break soon. I quickly skinned this wolf as well. At least I wouldn't be hungry any time soon. By the time I was done skinning the wolf it was pitch black. Night had fallen and I could only see about 3 feet in front of my face because I didn't have any moonlight tonight. Luckily I still had my lantern which allowed me to see about 10 feet in front of my face instead. My only sense of direction was following the train tracks as I started to make my way back to the cabin. I eventually left the train tracks and was blindly wandering through the snow trying to make it back to the cabin. I soon thought I had walked past the cabin and that I would be hopelessly lost, but that is when the cabin came into view. I breathed a sigh of relief, but my celebration was cut short as I heard another angry growl..... There was a wolf right in front of the cabin! I tried to dash past him, but I was moving pretty slow from carrying all of the other wolf meat and skins. The wolf jumped at me and knocked my lantern out of my hands. I furiously punched and kicked at the wolf as it was attacking me. I finally managed to kick him off. The wolf whimpered as it ran away. I tried to move, but I stayed still.... was I dead? a few seconds later I relived when my vision came back and I sluggishly tried to get to my feet. I looked around, but I couldn't see anything. I heard angry growls again, but fortunately the growls seem to be moving farther and farther away. I desperately tried to look for any signs of the cabin. I knew I was super close to it! It should be right in front of me! My lantern was knocked out of my hands and now I couldn't find it either! After thinking that I might die just feet from my cabin, I recalled that I still had 3 matches. I lit one of my precious matches and realized the cabin was literally 2 feet away from me. I rushed inside and bandaged my wounds. I tiredly cooked some wolf meat food and went straight to sleep. What an exhausting day! The next morning I cautiously went outside to grab my lantern and then quickly came back inside. I realized the wolf had torn most of my clothing in our fight and some of it was beyond repair. I repaired my ski jacket and hat, but I had a sinking feeling when I realized that I would not have pants, shoes, socks or a scarf. I might have a lot of wolf meat to cook now, but I would be in serious danger of freezing to death if I ever went outside again. I would have to plan my next move very carefully. To be continued.....
  12. Actually this did resolve my problem. I knew I was crouched because I was trying to sneak up on a deer. I didn't know that you couldn't shoot while crouching. That seems kind of silly it won't let you do that. Skyrim lets you hold your bow sideways like a gangster while your crouched! Well thank you for at least solving my problem. You will be happy to know that I didn't starve like I thought I would. I had a wolf dive for me and I nailed him in the head. I pulled my only arrow off the wolf just as another wolf came at me. I got another head-shot! I was so happy! Then I skinned them both and tried to walk home in the dark.... Only to get jumped by yet another wolf.... lol I'm still alive, but just barely!
  13. I couldn't agree with this more. I had an encounter with a wolf as I was trying to check out a cabin. I knew he was around there somewhere, so I tried to sneak around the other side. When I got closer to the cabin, I was searching for the wolf to try to keep some distance between us. The wolf popped over a small hill near me and I went into a panic. I tried to light my torch that was in my hands. Instead of left clicking - I right clicked and threw my unlit torch on the ground. I paused the game and face palmed a couple times as I was trying to figure out what to do. I knew my only chance was to try to resume the game and try to either search my inventory for my other spare torch or try to hit the number 1 and hope my torch pops up before I got jumped. I resumed the game, but I didn't get to my torch in time. Fortunately I didn't die, but was still a very intense moment! I really wish I could choose to bind my items to custom hotkeys!
