I just had it again... that sneaky brown stinky furball eating my Triceps and part of the Latissimus dorsi. While I was harvesting a wolf that I just ended, that brown sucka was extremely sneaky and absolutely silent until the very second when I finished the harvesting. Then he roared once and ate a good part of me. Not very funny and definitely not realistic in relation to how the bear and wolf threat works in TLD, methinks.
I know it's easy to fall in a trance, but while I am harvesting for 20 minutes, it's a bad game mechanics, if the bear just stands behind me. One meter away. No roaring before. No sign of his approach - in the middle of a field in Pleasant Valley.
How about having at least some sign of "danger close" appearing during harvesting, so I could quickly stop harvesting and have a few seconds to prepare for fight of flight? I think that would be much more realistic and a bit mor fair.
I am on day 378 and I guess that should give my character some training in situational awareness when it comes to bears and wolves. Don't ya agree?
