  1. Add zi coal to zi forge after 30 minutes in game time. Each piece o coal raise zi temperature like 20 degrees. Get zi forge to 150 degrees and turn zi scrap metal into zi arrowheads....
  2. You make them, you must. -Yoda
  3. I have read something like this in several different places like the Steam forum for the game and maybe a reddit... A lot of people seem to have complained about frequently getting parasites with a 1% chance, so it is most likely borked...or another stealth nerf
  4. He did not have wet clothes on I don't think. It just got too cold at some point in the middle of the night and got frostbite. That can actually happen in FM in the farm house...it is wide open... If you got that cold, you would shiver violently and wake up. The game should be tweaked in that respect, giving you the option to wake up and start a fire if it has suddenly become this cold and you were previously warm and not currently afflicted by hypothermia.... @michael_martin I agree in a way you were robbed...but now you know in FM you need a fire to sleep there until they fix the sudden freezing while sleeping mechanic...
  5. Hello, I have a few noobish questions about meat game mechanics. I have been playing long enough where I should know the answers to these questions, but I haven't tried doing these things yet so I thought maybe I could ask you all before finding out the hard way... So I quartered a bear due to an imminent blizzard, I brought all the bags to a trailer. If I leave the bags outside in the cold will a wolf or bear notice them and eat them. Same question but raw meat not in the quartering bag, just pieces of meat. Same question, but cooked meat... Lastly and unrelated, I'll be darned if I don't lose at least one arrow when I kill a bear. I figure it's a fair trade for the bear, but it would be great if any arrows in something we killed were found on the ground where the animal died after harvesting them. After I quartered the bear it's feet despawned after my first bag dropoff in the trailer and I never did find my second arrow in the snow. Same happened with the one I shot on the lake. Guess I'll have to go to DP to forge more arrowheads if I am going to keep losing them...
  6. Well like I said if you are in that cave you mentioned, if you climb up over the south wall into the bunny clearing there are sometimes some saplings, but there are trees too I thought. Where there are trees there are usually sticks, branches, shrubbery, and the like for fires...
  7. Wow so you want things to be even worse?! I definitely don't agree. Part of survival in this game is moving to greener pastures, to find fresh survival supplies. I would like a way to do this more easily, that doesn't involve abandoning useful items or making six trips between zones. I hope we can craft saddle bags for the horsie we may be getting. That would help... I wouldn't even ride the horse, he'd be a pack horse. Maybe the horse can drag an improvised sled....
  8. Are you just going to hang out in the cave area because it's warm? I mean you don't have a bedroll right? So you have to just stay awake all night? If so I have climbed over the south wall before into the bunny clearing south of there (the camp office would be north of you). I don't think there are any wolves up there over the wall, just bunnies. There is a chance for a couple saplings too...in the event you get bored.... Might have to backtrack a bit to find a spot where you can get up and over, but I definitely remember figuring a way over a snowy part of the wall. There's trees and sticks up over there too. If you can see you can practice throwing rocks at bunnies too, lol.
  9. Maybe it should be implemented then? That would be swellzies!
  10. Oops my bad, lol. I didn't even notice because I ignore them anyway, lol...
  11. I was envious of @Carbon's forum pic so I Googled "orange and black tribal art" and this wolf image was on a mug. I cropped it. My runner up was a sun, I used it on my background pic on my profile. I thought the wolf would be a fitting image for one who enjoys this game. I'm a dude. One shoulder tat. Not tribal art. It would make a good alternate Hinterland logo. I saw a post discussing the new simplified logo.
  12. No problemo. I actually really enjoy sharing info on this game in general. I haven't been playing long, but I studied all the maps and have a decent memory. So don't hesitate to pick my brain on where stuff is. That static list of loot on Interloper is a pretty big help in general. Just to clarify one thing on the ravine climb, by rest I don't mean sleep on the ledge. I meant rest for a couple minutes on the ledge to get your stamina bar filled. You should do all the resting in the cave at the bottom of the ravine and drink a coffee right before you begin the climb up the rope. If you sleep on the actual legde there could be a bug where it won't let you select the rope from the middle.....from what I read somewhere in the forum. So if you can't make it to the ledge after sleeping in the cave down there, quit and reload your game in the cave and try sleeping till you are fully rested. The flare gun not only stops a bear charge, if you manage to hit the bear with a flare shell it will eventually kill the bear like shooting it. Pretty useful....
  13. Well if you manage to bag two bears and craft a bear bedroll, which is a feat in of itself, then you have many more options for survival. You might still find a cloth one if you check everywhere. I almost prefer a cloth one, it isn't as warm but its lighter and you don't have to bag more bears to repair it. One you will hate for sure, the other is pretty solid. The one you will hate is FM, and I don't blame you I hate it there too. There are too many wolves, it's too cold, and it has way too many fog days where you very easily get lost. You are best not going out into the fog of death. So it's a risk. There are static spawns there in Interloper and because of how my mind works I can't just not go there once to grab everything really fast (couple days), and get the heck out. Plus there are all the cattails and mushrooms....lots of warm 100 calorie cooking skill increases. Don't go there though if things go sideways and you will hate me forever if you die. It is a risk, we both know that and I'm not telling you to go. It's just an idea, free loot, and you aren't planning on staying. The other waaaay less deadly idea is the ravine connector map that connects ML to CH. I would bring like at least 5 snares, your bow and arrow, your tools, cloth, and bedroll. There is a cave way to the right after entering from ML. There's also a cave further up on the left, and the big open cave even further up over the tracks. I like the one on the right. There are two deer that spawn there consecutively occasionally being present together and bunnies outside both caves. You could just live in the cave on deer and bunnies. There are no wolves or bear so it's boring and you'll need to go to ML to kill a bear if you can't find a cloth bedroll, so you can repair the bear one. There's also the flare gun in the ravine, but you'll need a rope. Sometimes there is a rope in the far cave on the CH end. You will also have to sleep in the cave at the bottom of the ravine to be fully rested (so bring your bedroll), even after doing so, you may still need a coffee and to rest on the ledge on the way up to get out. The rope is really really long. I almost got stuck down there. This is a link to a bunch of known static loot spawns on Interloper, so spoiler: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=888366399
  14. Yeah, I would check on the bear on the far end of Mystery Lake first since you are in the Camp Office. If that one isn't there you can look for the one by Max's Last Stand. Sometimes that one wanders all the way to the front yard of the Trappers Hut. Might be able to arc an arrow into it from the porch. If you manage to find or craft a bedroll, I might have a couple Ideas....
  15. I agree, this game is so odd, it's is the only game I have played where I enjoy watching others play, and I enjoy hearing stories about their experiences. It's like watching people's real life survival stories. I mean I know it isn't real, it's a game, but the game can be so difficult hearing about what other's are going through always seems interesting to me. I normally don't care at all about other's gaming experiences, lol.
  16. Basically when Interloper first was implemented people made it to 200 days, (or people claimed like @Carbon said) so they implemented World Decay mechanics that make all playplaythroughs more difficult. It gets increasingly colder over time, there is less prey wildlife to eat, and more predator wildlife. Untill you get cooking to level 5, predator meat gives you an increasing chance to catch parasites, the more consecutive days you eat it...so limited food. The objects you find in the world are also allegedly decaying upon beginning a new game as well. So I don't know how many people are lasting how long currently. That being said, most people who try interloper without any experience in the game probably typically freeze or starve to death within the first three days or so. This can really happen to anyone on a real bad luck start....at night, in a full blizzard, no idea what map you are on, or where you are on said map. So there's that. Even on a nicer start, daytime, you know where you are, you see shelter, you can still starve to death or freeze to death in the first three days. So the first major accomplishment is lasting a week. The next goal is last a week and get to a forge and make tools. If you manage to do that, it's also a big success. So the next goal is last 2-3 weeks, at least forge a knife (or two), some arrowheads and make some arrows and a bow (the necessity of an improvised axe has become debatable as you can break stuff with a hammer, which is also repairable, and cut some things with a hacksaw...you need a knife to craft other things). I would call an Interloper run a full success if you manage all of the above, have crafted clothes and other decent clothes in general, find or craft a bedroll so you can sleep anywhere, and managed to store a couple weeks of edible food and wood. If you do all that you made it. Anyone can die at anytime in the game with some bad luck. Like getting attacked by a wolf and then a bear, or even worse vice versa, lol. If you got all that stuff done and then happened to have a real bad luck day, you still made it I say....
  17. Well hopefully @Klausware will give us an update on whether or not those buttons are the right buttons....if he decides to return to the forums, lol....
  18. Peple have historically made it past 200 days on Interloper, I am not sure which of those runs dated pre or post World Decay mechanics. I consider any run past 4 days on Interloper a success . So regardless of what happens you did well. If you don't make it, you will learn from this experience and with a little RNG luck on your side you will have an even better run in the future eventually. So no stress, and good luck!
  19. Not to double post but, UPDATE I killed my first bear!!! And it was a terrible experience, lol... It wasn't terrible because I was injured, I lucked out and didn't get injured. Well, lucked out....cheated....whatever. So I am in Coastal Highway and I was heading over to the waterfront cottages to loot them. On the way over I see the bear that lives in the cave on the edge of Misanthrope Island. I had been there before and didn't notice the bear, I thought he hadn't spawned in this playthrough....but he must have been off on a trip somewhere. Anyway I see him and he's walking to the waterfront cottages with me. On top of that there's a wolf that keeps running up to the bear....then gets scared....then runs away...and then comes back over and over. He is also running between the bear and where I am going. I decided I needed to remove the wolf from the equation, so I aggro him and back off and drop bait. For some reason the bait doesn't work and I end up in a fight. I stab the wolf and get away with minimal damage (9%), no torn clothes, and no bleeding wound. I track the wolf to a rock near the cottage I was heading to, and I light a fire and harvest him. I collect the goodies and cook the meat and head to the closest cottage. Right before I get there my scent aggros another wolf that I hear, but can't see yet. I make a break for the house, can't find the door, but get on a porch and narrowly avoid him. I get in, drop all the stink, loot the house and go to bed because it's night now anyways. I wake up with the plan to take out the other wolf and see what I can do about the bear. I take out the second wolf without much trouble, light a fire, cook the meat and drop all that off in the house. It's still a little earlier than mid-day, I see Mr. Bear out on the lake not very far from the cottage I'm at. I use the fact that I can quit the game and start back inside the house in the event things with the bear go sideways. I start practicing trying to hit the bear from fairly far away while standing on a big rock outside the house overlooking the lake. On about my 8th attempt I manage to ark an arrow into him. I'm not sure where I got him in the end, but I saw blood. He goes running off twords the log sort. Great.... Eventually he stops running and starts walking back in the general direction of where I am. I start collecting sticks and breaking up branches with my hands. I do this for about two hours in game and he's STILL walking. I take out a big fir branch with my axe. Still walking. I take out a cedar. He drops. It's kinda late now, but I'm not exhausted yet. Had I known then what I know now, I would have gone to bed for a few hours instead of going to harvest him. Luckily he died about 20 feet from an ice fishing shack. I harvest his hide and all the guts (10 of em) after lighting a fire. Now I'm exhausted and it's night time. I harvest 10 kilos of meat and cook it. Now night is half over already and I'm way past exhausted. I stash the meat I cooked in the ice fishing hut and take the hide and guts back to the house hoping all the wolves by the cottage are definitely dead....they are... I sleep for about 6 hours because I want to get back out there and harvest the other 20 kilos of bear meat. I still have 30 sticks and 3 cedar logs. I start harvesting and realize the meat is already down to 49 condition and mouldy...Great. I quarter the rest of him. I go to the ice fishing hut and harvest the 6 bags of meat that have 4.5 kilos each or so. I cook it all. It's all mostly at 98-99 condition. Now it's night again and I'm exhausted again. Moral to the story....harvesting a bear is a huge pain in the keester, if you plan on getting all of it.... So make sure you are well rested, it will be an all day affair....
  20. Does the Steam controller have left and right bumpers above the triggers? I am using a PS4 controller via Steam big picture mode and the left and right bumpers above the triggers cycle through the fire, food, and water. They cycle through things in the journal, and change inventory tabs for me too... So if the Steam controller has no bumpers above the triggers, try whatever buttons change your inventory tabs...
  21. You know what, you might be right... The first time I did it I was already wet and I may have misjudged the rate. After I had already posted this I went out dry in a new blizzard, and hid behind the house under the overhang and tore up something that took an hour and a half and I barely got wet at all... So yeah if you are in a blizzard taking some form of shelter is a big improvement than just standing in the middle of it. I stand corrected. Good job Hinterland! ....and @Carbon
  22. Oh is that supposed to work? Maybe I need to find a better spot....
