  1. From time to time the rabbit stops and looks around now. I'm quite sure rabbits didn't do that before. I guess that makes it easier to stun a non moving target.
  2. No afflictions on the status screen. Yes, I was starving and saw a red bar growing clockwise for fatigue but I'd be interested to know what that means. I mean I am tired anyway and I know I can't carry a lot in that state. After sleeping about 6 hrs without eating and drinking it looks like that: It dissapears after eating and drinking to get white bars there and sleeping for 4 hours. But what does that mean, I mean I know I'm exausted when the display is red...
  3. ben91, this is a game you can pick up for 6,24 € on Steam's sale now. I've got it for 12,79 € last year in November, I put 288 hrs in, that's 4 Cents an hour! You say, you are an experienced player, so I guess you have put even more time enjoying this game. I think a couple of ideas you mention are very interesting, but I guess Hinterland would need to establish some kind of subscription modus to be able to realise more of such ideas. You and me, we might be willing to pay, but how many others? Would this be necessary anyway for the major part of the community?
  4. What does that yellow exclamation mark in HUD mean?
  5. I've also liked the old MT map with those short cuts, but I guess they wanted to tone down the difficulty for beginners. Maybe it would be an idea to have the new map for the lowest difficulty setting in Wintermute and have the old map layout for the others and the survival mode? I didn't start Wintermute until I've made some runs in the survival mode mostly at pilgrim (although not on the Mountain Town map). So as I started my Wintermute run I already knew how some things work in the Long Dark. For example the ability to hunt rabbits and drop decoy. The way which leads directly to Milton
  6. What trouble? It's just 3 pelts and one gut. It's 0,1 kg heavier than the wool toque, but I think all self made stuff is a bit heavier than industrial made clothing. I'd say it might not be interesting in the first 400 days of pilgrim survival mode but I am sure it can be some factor in other difficulty settings. Especially when you have to fight vs bears and wolfs. You can get down 3 rabbits so quickly, so I personally really welcome the option to craft such a hat.
  7. It's live since almost 2 hours? At least on Steam.
  8. I like those screens, but they are gone too fast for me too. I guess this will change in a few weeks/months but now it's gone too fast
  9. The rope is pretty long there as far as I remember. I've only been there once yet, but before climbing up such long ropes I sleep until I am fully rested and I think I have even had to take a short nap on the ledge there inbetween to be able to make the last few meters without risking a fall.
  10. Are you sure? My english is not the best, but as far as I understand, your save will be wiped away. You have to finish episode 2 too. The message is " If you completed Episodes One and Two prior to Redux, Episode Three will still be unlocked for you..." I see no info what happens when you've only unlocked episode 2 but haven't started playing it.
  11. That's what I did too in my >400 days pilgrim save (please don't laugh at me), at least with my important stuff from ML camp office. I went back to FM forge to get my two heavy hammers. I forgot to take my sleeping bag with me so it was kind of nerve wrecking in regards of the weather as I've arrived at poacher's camp and decided to go back to ML office beause the beginning bilzzard. Finally next day I've got my hammers and went back to trapper's and took all hides, tools and stuff on me - about 80 kgs. I can't move and I can't await for the update to come so I can play on ^^
  12. To me it makes perfect sense. The bear didn't see me shoot him. He runs away and after he doesn't see any further danger he calms down and decides to go home to his cave where he falls asleep and fades into the long dark... Maybe the wounds he suffers from my gunshot are not that severe and he is losing blood slowly? Does an animal calm down after being shot in the game or does it run wild until it dies?
  13. By chance I've found out that a wounded bear goes back to his cave at some point and dies there. At least that is what I have experienced by shooting a bear in Coastal Highway (not far away from Quonset). I shot him, retreated to a trailer and waited one hour. I was not able to trace him. So I went back to that container, did some repairs, harvested some reclaimed wood and as it was getting dark I decided to go to sleep in one of the beds. In the morning I wanted to head back for Quonset, but something made me decide to check the nearby bear cave. Guess what, the bear was inside, dead and just
  14. That would be so cool! Watching this so many times never makes it lose a bit of the first impression. Just like the game itself
  15. Oh, man that's terrible. It's good to hear that you were lucky to minimise the damage halfway. A very wise advice, and not only for the young and curious. Get well soon! But why do you need to burn diapers? I'd get in big trouble even if I would only burn leaves in the back of my garden.
  16. It was my first event as I'm only playing since about 11 months. I liked it very much especially because I was able to apply what I have learnt in the past months: avoid stupid decisions. I liked Day1 - although in my main save I try to avoid walking around in the darkness and bad weather. Day2 & 3 were o.k., I knew it's better to stay away from the wolf packs and aurora wolfes. The huge tension what's going to happen on Day4 (fire, cabin feaver, will the wolfs go away as usual during bilzzards?), all the thoughts while sitting put cooking tea & coffiee. Day4 was fun again, as I was a

    DAY 4 (spoilers)

    Spent day 3 in the Quonset Garage. Just put my head outside shortly and got back in. Drank some coffee and tea and nibbled on a chocolate bar. I also thought about leaving that place and try for a cave or maybe a fishing hut, but I was too afraid of the wolves. Never fought aurora wolfes before and didn't have a flashlight, so the choice was clear for me. Day 4 finally the wolfes dissapeared, so I decided to visit the nearby houses to break down the furniture for reclaimed wood. I took almost 60 units and collected about 15 stick. Altogether I had about 100 units of reclaimed wood and 100

    DAY 3 (spoilers)

    So I spent Day2 inside Quonset Garage, just put my head out twice only to rush back to the door after hearing wolfes howling. Then I decided to make tea and coffee. Now I have about 5 kg of tea & coffee! Fortunately I have found a hatchet under the stack of tyres next to the working bench. That was really hard to see. I only saw it because I was running around the garage with a lit flare I took for my 10 sec trip outside of the garage and thought I'll look again around inside as I had a lot of time spare after deciding not to become wolf food. Today I will rather stay inside too beca
  19. I also think about staying put in Quonset garage. Just to be sure to get the twighligt badge. But I guess I will be too curious to see what's going on outside. I'm practically only playing this game on Voyager, so all these wolfs will make me pretty nervous, especially because I haven't found a knife or a hatchet yet. Is it possible to kill a wolf barehanded? I have a rifle but I'd like to know just in case I do not hit a wolf critically. Does anyone know how many calories you need to survive 1 real time hour in 4DoN? I had the feeling that 1 in game day is 1 real time hour, can anyone co
  20. I have experienced the same problem yesterday and on Saturday. I managed to pass through it on the left side of the bridge by running back and forth, somehow it worked...
  21. You still have the option to fast-forward time until the food/water is perfectly ready, you don't need to sit and wait until it's done. What I like is, you can make a fire inside a hut, start cooking something and then take a torch go outside make another fire and cook there too. The other way around is even better if you have a magnifying glass. I haven't got the feeling that it took me longer than before to cook a whole deer.
