  1. Burn Netflix to the ground. Salt the earth where the company once stood. A terrible company full of terrible people. Bunch of bigots, one and all. I'd sooner cut off my own foot than give Netflix one thin dime. Dear god, my nightmare scenario is netflix gains the rights to make a TLD TV series.
  2. If you shoot from indoors, like in the porch on PV, you won't get a blood trail. For some reason you have to be in an outdoor location. I hit a bear with the flare gun through a porch window. He ran off about 50 feet then went back to strolling. He died about 4 hours later. Remember, sometimes the bear will reset if you sleep or leave the map. So just pass time if you are in a car, but don't sleep if you can avoid it. A broken arrow should wound him as much as a normal one. It can take up to 6 hours for a bear to bleed out, depending on your skill level and where you hit him.
  3. Follow the pictures. 1. See that tinder plug on the ice? Always make a trail to your Hut from the shore using tinder plugs. 2. Always pick a hut with a door if you are going to make it your long term fishing hut, both for the warmth bonus, and protection. Arrange two fires like this. You can get it a big closer with practice, and walk in an out over the cooking surfaces, but you have to be REAL careful and the additional wind resistance isn't worth it. 3. This is how your hut should be operating normally. The inner stove is off, only to be used if the cold gets really bad, or you need to keep the flame going and both fires outside are blown out. Look at the smoke. See how it is going straight up? 4. Now see how the one behind the door is straight up, but the one on the right is blowing to the left? If you have the fire next to the door in JUST the right spot, the cooking surfaces are accessible from the doorway, but the door acts as a wind break giving you 180 degree protection from the wind. The other one only has 120 degree protection. So at least one will burn if the wind comes from anywhere in a 250 degree arc. 5. Here we have an example of just that. The wind was enough to blow out one, but the other stayed lit, as you can see by the smoke going straight up. 6. When it is windy, you may have to burn wood that isn't a stick. This will increase your burn time over 9 minutes. When it is "gusty", you can still add fuel, but a gust of wind will drop your fire to 9 minutes. So if you wait until your fire is at 1min left and add a stick, if the wind gusts, you might only lose a few minutes. but if you add reclaimed wood, you can lose a half hour. Pull torches to reduce the burn time by 10 minutes and throw those torches out onto the ice. They serve 2 purposes. One, they go out when the wind starts gusting too high. Two, you can harvest them later for sticks, thus turning other forms of wood into sticks. Harvest them when you AREN'T using the fires. 7. Here you see me inside when the wind is too high for cooking with the fires. I keep the cooked meat inside on the left and the fuel on the right. When you have max cooking, if you have a cooking pot, you can cook 1.5 ltrs of water in 1 hour 4 minutes. You can thus nap for an hour and get 1.5 ltrs of water while you are doing it. An efficient use of your time. 8. Keep your bedroll on top of the cabinet for the space. If you have anything special you want to keep out of the way, you can see there is a spot you can put items so they stick out of the drawers. I keep Lure Meat there, as well as tools. 9. On the shelves or in these spaces are a good place to put the water you make so it is out of the way if you make like 50 bottles of water, dump it out on the ice and sort it later. 10. Here you see a good cooking arrangement. I like to have at least one can of water cooking, because you can hit space bar and accelerate time, but at cooking 5, it's only 13 minutes, max. If your fire is at 9 minutes, it won't burn out. Your fire is at 10 hours, you say? Well, while you are accelerating time to cook faster, the wind can gust and reduce that fire from 10 hours to 9 minutes in a heart beat. NEVER ACCELLERATE TIME MORE THEN 13 MINUTE INCREMENTS. Remember, fires burn longer outdoors, so 9 minutes of outdoor fire is actually about 15 minutes. I keep the raw meat piled up outside, so I can right click it onto the cooking surfaces easier. 11. DO NOT USE UP ALL YOUR JERRY CANS. Always save about .1 ltrs of oil in a can. if you use up all the fuel, they vanish from your inventory. However, look at the picture. 4 Ltrs of oil is only 3.3kg. If you use the little bottles of Everflame, they are .5 kg for .5 ltrs of fuel. So save and fill those jerry cans! 12. If you are cooking only the meat, cook different types of meat with different cook times and check them. Only accelerate time on the one that will be finished cooking first. It's okay if they don't all finish at the same time. Staggering your meat cooking time is the next best thing to keeping a can of water boiling for the purpose of controlling time jumps. Just remember, when you accelerate time, you also add about 1-3 minutes of time. So accelerating 13 minutes is actually 14-16 minutes, depending. And last but not least, have fun. You can power cook food, or power boil water, getting the most bang for your buck while having a place to retreat or grab a torch and transfer the fire to the inside fire place for the long term, if a blizzard starts. Remember that the fires will chase off wolves, but bears can smell food on a fire, so if you hear crows, it might be a bear. Be prepared to close that door and let him have his snack.
  4. No, it is infinite. Sorry, but you have not taken into consideration beachcombing where you can get renewable resources. And the beach combing spawns are actually damn regular and predictable. For example, I have determined a spot where rotting leather shoes show up like every 20 days or so. Exact same spot. That's 2 leather. There are cloth spawn as well. You don't need weapons, just a magnifying glass. Chase a deer into a wolf and start a fire to chase him off. The only thing you NEED cloth for is your 2 shirts, 2 socks, 2 underwear, and the ear muff. Maybe a hat. Several of those items can go a long time without being repaired. I usually, in a pinch, ditch the socks and underwear. Bit of a hit, but the rest of the gear can be with wolves bunnies, and deer. All things you don't need cloth or leather for to repair. Fishing has given me literally Multiple TONS of food. My next project is to see how long I can sit in a car without getting out. I think water will be the limiter on that one. I'm shooting for 60 days. Once they introduced the craftable hat, the only thing that will get you is boredom. Properly outfitted, you could stock a cave to sit in and do nothing for months in game. without the craftable hat, eventually frost bite would get you. Sooner or later it would get you. Now, you can play the game forever. Hell, with Birch Bark Tea, you can make a damn good attempt at eternal life on DEADMAN. No, I'm afraid the only limit on the game is sheer boredom. Eventually, you do empty every building. Eventually, you have multiple bases in a line with hundreds of pounds of food and water. Eventually, you have over 500 cups of various tea. Eventually, you run out of room to put tea on the shelves. You stand in the middle of the Quonset Garage... surrounded by tea. Cup... after cup.... after cup... Of TEA.
  5. Oh. Right behind the trailer is a stump and a tree up against a little alcove of rock. Only one way in. The fire, if you put it in the lowest part of that little area is wind proof. Or rather, has not blown out yet. I can feel the wind, but the fire is low enough it does not. As for the crafting table, I usually make base at the quonset for the 5 wolves, 2 bears and 1 moose. Yes, every time you step outside you put your life in your hands, but its a steady supply of kills. The Log Sort is a bit of a... hunting trip? You know, like when you need to blow off cabin fever you go to a fishing hut? Well, the fishing huts get dull after a while, and unfortunately, the two fishing huts on CH that have doors are both close enough to attract bears. I much prefer it when I get a door WAY out on the ice. The one between the two islands? That one is the best to have a door. I like loading up with about 20 rotting meat fragments at .01 kg each and just wander the ice, luring in wolves, but the damn bears make that a bitch. So I have to kill them first. But log sort? Never had a bear come there no matter HOW many fragments of meat I have. So I can lure in wolf after wolf and arrow to the face them all. Honestly, I don't know why I do it. I mean, I'm going for 1000 days and I'm at 853. I should just hibernate in a cave for the next 150 days and get it over with, but for some god forsaken reason I can't just waste the time. I keep going on side trips to get more birch bark from Ravine. I mean, needless risk, but... dunno. fishing for more fish because... dunno. Just keep spreading out the water and food drops in ever increasing circles. Almost got every indoors location with water and food for a week. Working on every fishing hut. Laid down a trail of tinder plugs/charcoal/feathers crisscrossing the damn ice. Keep swinging by the mines to gather more coal. Honestly, don't even need it at this point but... it passes the time.
  6. I've learned to go exclusively with the flare gun. They come right at you and if you miss, they run. If you hit, they still run, but are going to die, sooner or later. I used to perch on things and shoot, then jump to break line of contact, but that's so much more complicated then walking up to him and shooting him in the face.
  7. Bah. Include it to scare bears and you can make it a plaid flare for all I care. Either that or give me my bear spear in the survival game. Damn I love that thing.
  8. New Base: Log sort. Found a wind proof location directly behind the trailer. So many wolves yet no bears. So you can lure them all in and then snipe them as you wish. Not quite sure why I'm collecting hundreds of these pelts, but hey, details.
  9. Leave an animal unharvested. I've gotten frostbite in my obsession to harvest every hide from every animal I kill. Why do I need a 300th wolf pelt? the first 299 wasn't enough? I have enough guts to make mountain climbing rope. enough rabbit pelts to make a giant rabbit. Yet i keep collecting them. I'm onto my 18th bear pelt. I don't even use the bear coat.
  10. You only healed one of them. Had you healed both to begin with, they would have healed together. Yes, you didn't know to do that, but you should have checked both icons.
  11. Just a thought, make a microwave able to cook, but only during the aurora. Just make it a one "cooking surface" fire that only turns on during the aurora.
  12. I have seen bunnies romp through fire. Those bastards are hard core.
  13. It's called the "Escape Key'. Keep your finger on top and listen for crows/barking. You do get a milisecond of warning.
  14. I finally got around to testing it and... yes. Apparently it does heal you when you are playing Deadman. Holy crap. I think I could actually play dead man long term now. I'm going to have to farm the ravine like no body;s business, but still.
