  1. the PV farmhouse is really dark.
  2. Is it just me, or are the interiors of building much darker since the updates? I have to use a light source to navigate the interiors of buildings now, even in the middle of a sunny day.
  3. I found HRV to be exhilarating and fun. Always on my toes, alert for the bears around my base camp caves. Spent over 40 days exploring, then another 3 dragging everything I found back to the Milton cave entrance. Found the signal fire. Good stuff there. Worth the climb. I hope everyone explores HRV. It is a great experience.
  4. Use the radial menu, RIGHT click on the raw rabbit and then place it on the cooking surface. Put your cursor over the cooking rabbit and it will tell you how much time remaining until it is cooked.
  5. The ledge sticks out from the ravine wall. Going off the edge, even crouched, is a death sentence. Unfortunately.
  6. So I have encountered an unusual situation that I have never had to deal with before. I'm in BR and deployed the climbing rope to the ravine. Made several trips up and down over three days, always stopping to rest on the ledge on the way back up. Sleep an hour and finish the climb. The last trip up, I slept the hour then had to log off. When i logged back on the next day, I'm still on the ledge (expected that), but i can no longer interact with the climbing rope. I'm stuck on the ledge with no way up and a deadly fall down. Has anyone else ever encountered a similar situation with climbing? If so, were you able to resolve the issue?
  7. Never noticed that before. Thanks!

    Weak Ice

    Thanks Patrick. I was only trying to bring to light the slightly off game mechanics of thin ice and the creatures who cross it. As you stated, you are well aware of it, so I will leave it in your capable hands. Keep up the good work.

    It’s obvious that you completely missed the point.

    Weak Ice

    Does anyone else have an issue with the weak ice game mechanics? Here is MY issue. How is it that a 450lb black bear carcass can sit in the middle of weak ice, yet a 200lb man can’t reach it? How did the bear get there without going through the ice? How is the bear still there if the ice won’t even support 200lbs? I could understand if the weak ice warning showed up when you were very near the bear as the combined weight of the bear and the man is unsupported by the ice, but when the man is a good 60 feet from the bear and the weak ice warning shows up, it seems a little off. Anyone else?
  11. I have found that hunting bears from the blinds is 100% safe (as long as the weather co-operates). Shoot the bear and when it starts it’s charge, crouch down. The bear CANNOT get to you if you are crouched inside the blind. Wait until you hear him start to move off then stand back up again. The bear will see you and charge again, and again you crouch down. In this manner you can keep the bear close to the blind until it bleeds out. It’s time consuming, but it gives you a protected area to duck back into if necessary while you are harvesting the bear. And, as an added bonus, you don’t have to try and find the carcass in the wilderness (although the circling crows do help to locate).
