  1. You shot the wolf with a pistol, didn’t get a crit, fought it off, then killed it with a second pistol shot, and the body glitched at a strange angle?
  2. I must have confused a wolf feasting on a kill for an already-dead deer. Still, that seems like a mechanic that one day might be real...
  3. Dead deer don’t attract wolves?
  4. Hushed River Valley. I just came back from my second run. Between the two, I got three skill books, a new bow, two arrows, three hatchets, two knives, distress pistol (and 4 flare shells, two snow pants, two climbing sox, two wool underwear, the nose satchel, and numerous pelts, bullets, and natural medicines. Edit: and an expedition parka!
  5. I shot an arrow at a bear, and it broke, hanging in the air. So I hit a bear in the face with an arrow, then ran to the safety of a nearby sedan. The game registered a hit with the progress icon. I waited out the bear’s bleeding only for it not to die. I exited the vehicle and found a broken arrow hovering over the road. Error in item placement aside, is this a common experience?
  6. TWM long term it’s good to bring all your coffee grounds, a hacksaw, and a quality tools (and some spare scrap if you have it). With your bow and jacket you should be all set. I’d bring a revolver though- it’s noise is good for wolves.
  7. I am gonna guess that a lone wolf encounter (easier) will always have a place in the game, as will multi-wolf (much harder). Hinterland is probably thinking about how many of one vs the other they want in what difficulty mode, and/or when the harder packs start spawning? (Immediate vs late to challenge an established run.)
  8. My interpretation is that the normal wolves AI works well as a ‘lone wolf’ encounter but is not working as the Hinterland team wants for a “pack attack”. Currently the few multi-wolf encounters I have had feel like two/three separate AI trees waiting to resolve individually. Creating a separate animal is probably the easiest way to create a pack AI & warn the player of the danger of the encounter.
  9. It’s a good animation... now only if that limping wolf outside the hydro dam didn’t take a bite outa me when I turned around to go to the ravine i’d be jolly!
  10. RNG informs this, but my current setup: wool touque, rabbit hat Wolf coat, expedition parka light sweater, wool shirt rabbit gloves deerskin pants 2x wool long johns 2x climbing sox deerskin boots I could run with 2x fisherman sweaters or expedition parkas, but I feel the durability of the crafted gear is more important than saving a few pounds.
  11. I like the unique mechanics of the ice and the fact that I can see the whole area on a clear day. It’s also intimidating to deal with fog there. The animals do not seem to have to deal with thin ice dangers. I don’t want to hunt often on that map!
  12. Day 42: It’s been 6 weeks since I crashed on this frozen island. I have found ample supplies to last me for some time; and with no hope of rescue anytime soon even they might not be enough. Having climbed to the top of the mountain and back I decided it was time for major hunt. I had never killed a bear before, but the books I have since have given me quite the crash course. I shot the bear on the far side of the lake, but the hit was not as clean as I thought and he took hours to die. At first I watched him bleed in the sunshine as he circled my fishing hut, the thin walls my only defense against him. Later, I just read while a too-curious Wolf kept trying to investigate. He finally died at dusk; just as a blizzard set in. I didn’t need the tussle with the wolf; in hindsight I should have dealt with him while I waited for my quarry to fall. Rising at 2 in the morning was not fun but at least I was able to boil water and get something to drink after the storm; my supplies consumed in my long vigil. The bear meat should last me for another week at least; at least I could bring it back without issue. Now to finish reading and fixing my deerskins...
  13. Nothing cheap or vile about survival that works... and that is the harder way to get a bunny dinner!
