  1. I agree with Hawk. Let's say you search a container, and it contains 3 revolver rounds in total. If you decide to stop the search early and leave 2 of the 3 rounds in the container, you're going to be able to pull the remaining 2 out the next time you search the container. Unless you're talking about a container marked "Empty" that magically has more rounds in it, a container marked "Searched" will always have more supplies in it. I was actually thinking about this the other day - the game devs could have easily not included that info when you hover the cursor over a container, and it's really helpful to know that a container is truly empty without having to waste time searching each one. I wish this was true for cars as well, but I mark them "Empty" by popping the hood if it's not dented.

  3. @Ice Hole I think I'm more invested in the Adventures of Battery at this point than I am in TLD Episode 3. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Thanks for the lols.
  4. Looks like solar panels to me! That's a cool detail. I think they're becoming more popular for people who live close to off-grid, so I don't think it's too crazy to include them in Milton.

    This is my new favorite thread. ๐Ÿ˜‚
  6. I had a similar issue. 350+ days in my longest game, working towards 500 days and Skilled Survivor, and then the update hit. It was actually pretty enjoyable to search the entire map again for the new items, and it definitely helped me get much closer to 500 days. I found 3 revolvers (one in the lighthouse at DP), several revolver skill books which helped me get to Level 3 pretty quickly, and plenty of bullets. I basically turned Mystery Lake into a deer and rabbit graveyard, but I finally got the Skilled Survivor achievement. ๐Ÿ’ช
  7. Seconding starvation/thirst, unless I'm on Interloper. I guess it doesn't really feel like "survival" when I'm walking around slowly dying because I'm not supplying myself with adequate food and water. I also once nearly completed the Whiteout challenge, got mauled by two wolves, took shelter in a house, and died in my sleep because I was too distracted by healing from the wounds to pay adequate attention to hunger or thirst (can't remember which). It was so annoying that I never want it to happen again.
  8. I'm on day 460ish in my longest Pilgrim run, and hoo boy does it get boring sometimes! I agree with what others have said about giving yourself "missions". I decided way back when I started this specific game that I wanted to really explore all the various regions. Climbing to the summit of Timberwolf Mountain to get special loot was surprisingly fun and exciting. The scenery, weather, and available shelters/resources make for a very different experience than parking yourself in the CH garage all day. Also, I disagree with what others have said about the birch saplings. I don't believe they *technically* respawn, but I've seen them respawn (sometimes in much higher quantities) after a major update. This is more like a refresh rather than a respawn, but it's very helpful for longer games. I doubt birch saplings would be growing all that quickly in subzero temperatures in real life.
  9. I moved the "Bible" (or at least the book on the altar) from the Milton Church to the ranger's station in the picnic area. It started floating after I broke down the stool underneath it. I'm going to assume it was an act of God and keep it there to bless the resident corpse in the station ๐Ÿ˜‚
  10. I also ate raw meat the day I got Level 5 Cooking, and immediately got food poisoning. I was pleasantly surprised that you can "reboot" ruined meat to 50% - just cooked a bunch of rotten old fish in my longest Pilgrim run. Seems like the only thing you'd want to avoid is leaving super low condition meat in a container, as I imagine it would disappear once it spoiled completely (like broken sewing kits and other trash). Thankfully ruined meat doesn't disappear when it's left on the floor or on the ground.
  11. I'm pretty sure I found a rupee from Legend of Zelda buried in the ice on Mystery Lake.
  12. ๐Ÿ˜‚I can definitely understand why they changed that one! Is that a floating soda can to the left of the fire?
  13. Hell yeah! I always liked that artwork in the game. Good job
  14. I lift the hood for that same reason - saves me from wasting time rechecking cars.
