  1. I was wondering if anyone knows how I can change my Display Name here in the forums. I’ve been away for a while but I’m getting back into the game. I’d prefer not to create a brand new account, but using this name isn’t going to work anymore.
  2. Still one of the best things ever posted to these forums...
  3. The main reason I don't play Pilgrim is that I'm a hoarder and there's too much stuff to carry around. My current game is a Custom game with lower loot levels, and even with that it took far too many trips up and down those ropes.
  4. I did that, my first excursion in. I started a new Pilgrim game in ML, looted enough to have decent supplies, and headed off to FM. I ended up dying from a "fall from great height" when I fell through the ice near the edge of the map and the game helpfully relocated me to the top of a cliff on the border without room to actually stand there...
  5. This is what I did, except I used that picnic area office instead of Orca. Sure, it's not warm, but otherwise it's good shelter with lots of storage. It's right by the rope, and you don't have to worry about the Orca wolves as you're climbing up and down.
  6. Brave the Muskeg! I've been spending a lot of time there lately, and it's a wonderful place. Sure, you'll die lots of times, but eventually you start to get to know your way around.
  7. That you can get up to Marsh Ridge without using either the cave or the rope.
  8. When any of these things happen. That's a good, if disgusting, one.
  9. Sounds like the game is working perfectly, then!
  10. That's my understanding. I don't feel too guilty about turning it off.

    My only problem with caves is the usual lack of storage. If they ever let us pick up and relocate backpacks, boxes, coolers, and other containers, I'd be perfectly content in a cave.
  12. I spent about two weeks camping out in a place with marked trees, checking two or three times a day. Eventually, on the second check of the day, my moose appeared. I'm not sure if that's the best strategy, but at least I have a moose-hide. It took me four bullets, I believe, but one of those was from a distance and might have been a miss. Coward that I am, I confronted the beast from the safety of a broken tree, and therefore didn't get trampled.
  13. That's why I turned it off in my current custom game. The last time I flirted with cabin fever was when I was making a quick raid of the Coastal Townsite, trying to get everything out of the houses before the wolves returned. Technically I was spending a lot of time indoors, but the idea that someone in that frantic, busy situation would get cabin fever enough that they have to sleep outside was just ridiculous. It's a poorly-implemented mechanic designed to discourage a particular type of gameplay. Anyone playing the game for fun, and not just to set a survival record, doesn't need it. Honestly, if someone really just wants to spend days and days doing nothing in a cabin that's fine with me, but I'd be bored out of my mind and probably get cabin fever IRL just from trying to do it. Now, if they implemented a better and more robust mental health system, that would be a different story.
  14. Excellent. More, please!
  15. This is the first time I've ever seen a multiplayer concept that had any appeal to me. Trying to track each other down, leaving clues, etc. would be kind of fun.
  16. I spent a pleasant couple of weeks camping in Milton Basin. The broken-down Hermit's Cabin has plenty of storage, a pot-belly stove, and... not much else. Even the spot by the stove isn't always sheltered from the blizzards. I could envision staying there for a while with the right supplies.
  17. I've had wolf carcasses sink into the ground. One went down to where it was almost invisible, then returned the next day. It's a glitch, but it did kind of simulate being buried in snow, so there's that. Another wolf died near the door of the Orca Gas Station in MT and it seems to have been absorbed into the building.
  18. That's a lot of calories, right there.
  19. My bear was just at the flat area at the top. It took some creative shimmying up the angles in the rocks to do it. But I didn't have bear quarters scattered everywhere to contend with.
  20. I had a bear die up there too. It's possible, but not easy, as you've discovered.
  21. I got my moose! From a tree in Milton Basin. And my experience exactly matches @Cattleman's. It made a wounded noise, ran a bit, then went back to grazing. Eventually it wandered close again, I hit it, and then a third shot while it was running took it down. Once I get that satchel made, I'll be able to carry All The Things.
  22. Makes sense to me. I can, and do, wear two hats and a scarf all at the same time IRL.
  23. Just imagine if HL recorded a whole new set of voice acting to reflect this: "Are you seriously going to make me eat that?" "Why do you want me to go there? There are wolves over there!" "I want to see YOU head out in a raging blizzard wearing a ragged hoodie..."
  24. Yeah, there are scratches all around the basin, and I've been camping out checking the area a few times during the day for over a week now. No moose yet...
