  1. Lucky find on the rifle - I searched the Hunting Lodge three times (with and without lantern, in daylight and night time) and didn't find a rifle there even though that's where I most expected to find one.
  2. Hi Ralph, It's just occurred to me ... you already have kerosene lanterns in game, would you ever consider adding kerosene (camping style) stoves in game for cooking with a single pot or can? Maybe even the garden greenhouse style kerosene heaters for indoor locations like the holiday cabins and the glazed porch at PV farmhouse?
  3. A horse designed by comittee would be a camel. Let Raph and the team control the development and design of their game on their own.
  4. Livestream gameplay of a community chosen new run the day after Steadfast Ranger update ... watch out especially for the silly doggies battle starting around 03:27:30 and the surprise discovery as I return to base from the Coastal ice.
  5. Whilst the revolver aiming is performing how I could expect as a user, both the bow and the rifle are aiming high to the left - that is, the shot falls low and to the right from the point of aim. With the rifle, if you stand 20 paces from the side of an in-game mailbox and aim at the top left corner of the side panel, the shot will hit the bottom right corner. That's about an 8 to 10 degree deviation. This is consistent over 10 test shots fired. The bow is suffering a similar deviation. Shots fired head on at the forehead of a docile decoyed wolf with the bow will always graze down the right side (viewed) of it's face or graze its right side (viewed) flank. To hit the wolf "in the face" at 20 paces, you have to aim to the left of its (as viewed) left ear tip. All shots fired at full health and energy with no hunger or thirst, on flat ground terrain so the shot trajectory should have been level flight. Further deviancy can be seen in how wolves react to being shot - I recommend you watch the first eleven minutes after this timestamped video point - I am not the only streamer/youtuber who has presented this same wolf behaviour in online content.
  6. Recording videos for youtube today in Wintermute Episode 2 ... so far I can confirm the following from the Survival Mode Steadfast Ranger update have appeared in Wintermute ... Sprain warning system and healing mechanics Revolver ammunition Birch Bark Tea Character puffing and panting and whinging and whining while overloaded, rested, fed & watered ... and standing still indoors. Not yet found a revolver on Mystery Lake (logging camp, upper dam & trailers, dead prisoners along the river, rail cars on the tracks, or camp office). Will be searching further when fog lifts - Jeremiah's rifle is 11% condition and not yet found a cleaning kit.
  7. Yup - something not right with the aiming mechanism on revolver, rifle and bow (not got flare pistol yet to try it) - not sure exactly what, but something is "off".
  8. The rifle aim tuning needs looked at too unfortunately - can't hit a deer at 20 paces while stationary (both of us) and crouched, but can hit a wolf at 100 yards with an aimed revolver shot. Also the bow aiming is off - shots keep sliding down the right hand side (as viewed) of wolves trotting in to pick up a decoy - even from as close as 10 yards away.
  9. I'm not sure this was supposed to happen (from tonight's stream) ...
  10. If it's too late in the day PST - that's going to blow out all the UK and European streamers waiting to stream it as soon as they've updated. I've been marketing to my followers since Friday that I'd be streaming the updated TLD today based on Raph's estimated release time mentioned above by ProsPex - I saw the same quote. I've also been tempering expectations in various facebook fan groups by quoting Raph's exact words.
  11. That's all true manic, I'm suggesting that rather than craft a sled from some of the more esoteric or technical routes previously suggested ... there is an existing "true to scavenger mode" opportunity within the game already - one that would require minimum crafting, and have sufficient source material as to be almost a throwaway item similar to the cost of a snow shelter or campfire.
  12. Yeah - dunno what's happened there - try this ...
  13. use hands not knife - I take that as a given - my rule is for when you can't use hands ny rule for decoys is for saving ammunition (bow or rifle) as arrows degrade when fired into snow or ice (or rock or trees) faster than when they hit flesh and fur.
