  1. Sounds good, guys. But let's refer to him by his proper name: Sasquatch.
  2. I know the guitar string plays when you're outside and the clock hits 2 hours of daylight left. And if I'm not mistaken music comes on when you discover certain locations. It's just vey ambient stuff so it's not in your face. I like it a lot, but agree. Maybe a little more wouldn't hurt.

    And yet we get our water from the bowl in the game.

    I've done quite a few times. Potable.

    The storage of water is definitely the bigger problem, and being able to melt snow in any location is the second imo. I recently killed a bear and two deer, harvested and cooked about 45kg of meat, and boiled over 30kg of water and had that many bottles on a desk to last me long enough to get my Living Off the Land achievement. Looking at that many plastic bottles really struck me as ridiculous. I think there are numerous containers from large to small the devs could add, and players would just have to manage space. Deer and bear stomach has been proposed, there are flasks, thermos', water coolers for locations like the gas station and signal hill, and even filling bathtubs, sinks or toilets with boiled water. Although personally, I still don't understand how water from toilets is potable. God knows how anyone in their right mind would be willing to get down and gulp a big mouthful of toilet water at a gas station!!
  6. Well I'm not a physicist (I'm in investment management) but I thought a very powerful solar flare might have enough energy to maybe push the satellites off course. I could be totally wrong. But thanks for shedding light on the subject!
  7. So I'm guessing a massive solar flare caused the event. If so, it would probably cause significant damage to the atmosphere. Should there be sunblock to avoid major sunburns? And should there be falling satellites considering all of them were probably knocked out of functionality/orbit from the event?
  8. I suspect the revolver's value will be in animal attacks. The effective range on the rifle is pretty short imo, so I believe a revolver would be all but useless anywhere past 30 meters. I think it's going to come in handy when fluffy or one of his goons jumps tries to rip your face off. A quick shot with the revolver from point blank range should neutralize him immediately.
  9. I won't answer for Coffee. But some blackened coho salmon with sautéed reishi mushrooms would really hit the spot.
  10. I have to say, I'm extremely excited to see what happens next week with the update... Day 140 and I have a boring routine down, so something to mix it up and make me worry about dying again is going to be awesome
  11. Flying creatures that hunt...I can see why you chose your name, Vhalkyrie! Who knows, could work but would require a craftable glove.
  12. Yeah that was my post over a week ago. Devs are adding a horse over the next year so let's see how calorie consumption works out there. And the dog being able to hunt would balance out the work in feeding him. So in the end it might net out to almost the same amount of work.
  13. I think it would make Sandbox even better! As in real life, having someone who would die for you and whom you would die for is the most rewarding experience of all
  14. I know this has been suggested in the past. Just want to reiterate how cool this would be. Seeing as how it wasn't on the (very exciting) update list recently released, thought the devs could take another look. The idea is to have a companion dog you find and whose trust you must gain by feeding him and interacting with him--petting, playing fetch--before he decides to follow you. You have to keep him fed and hydrated. There can be a key binding for his interaction with you and/or your surroundings. For instance, if you walk into a room the key can trigger him to search for hidden food or drinks. If you're hunting rabbits the key will trigger him to catch one (with probability of failure) or fetch a dead one. And when attacked by a predator, you can choose to have him fight off the animal as a last ditch effort. Fighting the predator can result in the dogs death, the predators death, the predators retreat or a combination of these outcomes depending on the predators size and the dogs condition. He should also be able to sniff out predators before they get too close. Maybe there could even be a list of items he could sniff out. If you're close enough to that item (100 meters or so) he'll bark and and run towards it. Or you would have to have one of that item on you and have him smell it and then search for it. Thoughts?
  15. I also read up on sled dogs and noticed that the real life diet of a sled dog is very demanding. However, most of the research I did was on a typical sled dog's diet during a race. I couldn't find anything on "casual" use. Since we would not be running a 500 km race with them, perhaps it would make sense that the food/water requirements could be lower. Finally, considering a normal person would probably require a lot more than 2500 calories per day hunting, fishing, harvesting, cutting logs, etc. I thought the dogs' requirements could be less as well. Just food for thought.
