  1. In FO4, the canon ending is you kill your son and nuke the group that has the best technology known to man. Wanting a "knife" after you pull it from a convict is pretty low on the video game psycopath scale. Just want and see what I will do for a nice hot plate of pancakes with syrup! lol
  2. They shouldn't disappear underneath the texture of an interior location, but I guess it can happen. Tip: never drop items that are scarce resources. Put them in containers. I was up on TWM and dropped a bunch of items, including flare shells, to cut weight to climb down a rope. I didn't realize it until I got back to the hut that i had lost 4 out of 5 through the snow.
  3. Maybe that's what cause the geomagnetic storm...
  4. It has been mentioned a few times. According to the orientation of regions on the Great Bear Island map, the direction walking out the enclosed porch of Pleasant Valley Farmstead house is SW (about 225° on a now non-working compass). From my observations, this is where the sun rises and the sun sets about 10 degrees to the left of going straight out the door on the opposite side (about 35°). Mystery Lake is very close to what you said (rises about 185° and sets at 355°). On Coastal Highway and Desolation Point the sun rises and sets almost exactly as expected. I haven't taken the time to note exact directions when I was at a higher elevation on Timberwolf Mountain yet.
  5. Maybe go up to the tail section and harvest the aluminum for a hang glider, then have the option to glide all the way to Pleasant Valley with a 33% chance of dying. I don't want a competition bow, I want a crossbow so I can shoot while crouched.
  6. I expect fire starting will change in the next update. Anybody that got the Cub Scout fire badge should know that more tinder speeds up the fire building process and increases the chance of success. With the shovel being front and center on the loading screen, I expect it will at the very least have a use in the Sandbox, and might even be required to finish part of Story Mode.
  7. Good differentiation between the fuels (I used to work in a refinery). There used to be a few different types of jet fuel, the main difference being the temperature where they freeze/thicken. Most of them would work in a kerosene lantern/heater but might smell and smoke a little more. Using jet fuel might run the condition of the lamp down faster, but that's about it. I do not think that having four full jerry cans would nerf the game much. IIRC, a full lantern only lasts 4 hours in game so you would need to refill it twice in a night. Starting with an empty lamp, one jerry can would not last a full night. It would allow you to craft/research a little quicker but you still need to sleep. If you weren't living in the Mountaineer's Hut (which frequently allows crafting at night), hiking up to the tail section is a lot of work. Regions with mine access allow you to collect enough sticks and coal to last 12 hours with half a day of foraging.
  8. Paraphrasing an old joke: Rangers are advising hikers to wear little bells on their clothes so they make noise when hiking. The bell noise allows bears to hear them coming from a distance and not be startled by a hiker accidentally sneaking up on them. This might cause a bear to charge. Hikers should also carry a pepper spray can just in case a bear is encountered. Spraying the pepper into the air will irritate the bear's sensitive nose and it will run away. It is also a good idea to keep an eye out for fresh bear scat so you have an idea if bears are in the area. Bear droppings tend to contain small bells and smell of pepper.
  9. I had it happen just after sunset, 10 hours of darkness.
  10. I hadn't thought about that as an outside location for night crafting. It should be possible there but it's not very sheltered from the wind. I don't pay attention to night or day if I am rested and the temp outside isn't too cold.
  11. With moonlight, you can craft at the work bench at night in the Mountaineer's Hut in TWM. I believe it's the only workbench like this. It is possible to start research (read) outside about a half hour earlier/later than inside. I would have to double check to verify, but I think I got 14 hours done a few days.
  12. I guess it will be explained by what happens in Story Mode, but all the deer with arrows in them really creeps me out. I mean really... a wolf shooting a bow? Did the storm make them develop opposable digits?
  13. Win10, Stalker. I just tried it out on ML 3 times with a fishing hut at my back and it did nothing. Maybe it's an xBone exclusive glitch...
  14. I quickly learned that one should never drop flare shells. I would guess the best alternative is to put them in the metal container. It would be excellent if you could place items without having to drop them first. My experience is that most games won't let you place items like this, do you know one that does? Using the developer console in the Fallout series is one of the few I can think of.
  15. PV on Stalker. Just killed a bear in the cave near Long Curve (headshot while it was sleeping). I was carrying the meat and skins to the Farmstead house and entered the field and could see the house. I turned around to get an exact location in relation to the mountains to make a second trip and then turned back towards the house. 6 wolves that weren't there 5 seconds ago. The screenshot isn't exactly where it happened.
