  1. I've never watched the series, but I did binge watch season 6, The Arctic. This coulda/shoulda been 20 - 30 episodes to do it right. I ended getting more out of watching the contestants relate their experiences on YouTube. Their accounting of events and their experiences there were so much better that the poor editing job the show producers did. That shelter that Wionya built with the double walled construction with the peeled bark interior was bushcraft shelter building taken to extraordinary levels. I can't watch bushcraft shelter building anymore on YouTube without thinking how amateurish their shelters look in comparison to her's.
  2. LOL, you beat me to the punch. I was just gonna post here my wish list to be able to at least bury the dead people outside. They could make it a craftable mound much like a snow cave, right? I'd keep the materials list doable...20 stones instead of 200, and utilizing at least 4-6 pieces of wood, maybe a piece of cloth or two if you wanted to do something decorative. something like this?
  3. Oh.... I get it, now. Thanks for the explanation. I kinda didn't notice that the first time around on account everything happened so fast and I didn't know what to look for. In my game, after I saw the other wolfs bolt, I took the time to harvest the downed wolf in bits and pieces while waiting for the other two wolves to return. They didn't so I ended up going back inside to drop off my goodies. Subsequently when I left the building the two wolves had returned and so the dance began again. This time around I did see the "moral bar" but still not fully realizing what it was telling me. I tried the same tactic as before only to be constantly straffed from one side to the other. I had such a hard time swinging that rifle around and took a couple of pot shots but that didn't slow them down too much. I finally switched to the pistol in desperation and took another shot or two and they kinda veered off and at that point I do believe their meter was only down half way... but so was my health bar. I that point I figured I better regroup and ducked back inside to nurse my wounds and check my condition. Once I'm inside I check myself, no bleeding, or bites, no need for bandages, antiseptic or pain killers, but my health is down 50% and when I look at my clothing every I am wearing is at 95-99% condition except one pair of socks has been completely destroyed?!? lol anyway, thanks again for the heads up!
  4. Hello Community, Apologize here in case I spoil anything for anyone. Finally got the opportunity to start Episode 3 today and so far I've been having a fun day. After talking to priest and getting all updated about the plane and after taking the phone call, i spend some time getting situated to go on my next quest. I probably should mention, Astrid is pretty well clothed and armed. By this point she's got a rifle, a pistol, survival bow and arrows (not many but some), the hatchet, hunting knife and prybar. As I prepare to leave I go to equip the rifle only to be prompted that I could not equip a weapon.... I think I already know what was coming next. I step outside only to be immediately menaced by a Timberwolf pack! Yeah, I saw that coming... I equip the rifle and almost immediately the dance begins. I step off the stairs and almost immediately hear close growling sounds to the left. I pan left and there it is, my first wolf of the pack. Crouching down as I quickly try to aim, I see nothing but fur and take the shot! Instakill! I quickly look for the next target(s) but the two remaining wolves scamper away. Suddenly, but briefly, the achievement unlocked icon appears on the screen. Ok, glad to have achieved it, but wasnt I supposed to kill all three wolves? Seemed just a little too easy. Sorry about the long winded diatribe, but later when I was in my Steam account I was looking thru the achievements and when I highlighted the achievement Unlocked May 12 @ 1:54pm There Will Be Blood Defeat your first Timberwolf pack. Steam stats indicated only 5.2% of players on Steam had unlocked that achievement. Now either there's a lot of accounts on Steam that own TLD or this achievement is a lot harder than it seemed? Or are there maybe a lot of Steam users that just havent played the game since Episode 3 came out. If so, that would be sad. Anyways, did I get off easy? I dunno? Is it supposed to be all three and it glitched? Wouldn't anyone and everyone who as progressed past this stage in the story obtain this achievement?
  5. Nice Shot Zap!
  6. I'm actually looking forward to the time when Hinterland launches their User Generated Content project for modding. One of the first things on my wish list would be a hand tool craftable work bench. This is something that you could build in a cave and then use it to craft clothing and what not. Simple mods like this will add elements and function that will make this beautiful yet deadly region just a little more appealing and hospitable.
  7. Yeah, I found that food cache once right where you said it was. It was okay and all, but overall I was kinda disappointed. It was definitely a while back and when I went to PV, I never did find the one. It was well before this last update, probably closer to when the first episode had just come out so I probably just couldnt find it. Question is does the glitched food bunker show up in story mode during episode three? If so, that might impact gameplay? I dunno, haven't had the chance to play it yet.
  8. Battery Jokes... Where does a mountaineer keep his airplane? In a cliffhanger!
  9. LOL, I wasn't sure what I was reading when I came across this... At first glance I wasn't sure if this was a spell from a Harry Potter book or a sexual position from the Kama Sutra.
  10. To the left of the bear cave there's a lookout area looking down on the clearing near the the cave with the laptop. If you go further left, around the rock outcropping, if memory serves is an anchor rock for a mountaineering rope. I didn't have a rope at the time, being loaded up with food just in case i didnt make it down the steep slope before sunrise. I managed to avoid the bear but crouch walking around the rock out cropping and then duck walking down the steep cliff side by traversing left to right with a series of "controlled" falls until I reached the bottom, pretty bruised and sprained for certain! I hobbled as fast as my sprained limbs would allow straight away to the cave containing the lap top without further incident and with sufficient time remaining before day break and retrieved the final archive.
  11. Not sure how often or if the corpse at the signal fire always shows up here, but it did for me today. Got to wondering what happened to this guy? When I got up to top, there was food, clothing, a campfire with plenty of fuel and an intact snow shelter. Not to mention the moose leather satchel and a backpack with some additional goodies like a whetstone, chocolate and some assorted ammo. The corpse yielded a good condition hatchet, some sardines, a rifle bullet and a pack of matches. I lit up a fire and started some rosehip tea before I looted all the goodies. The snow shelter repair took all of two sticks. So... why is this dude dead up here? what did he die of? From the looks of things, this spot has what you need. obviously the two liter pot was mine, but the canned goods in the snow where here when I got up here. So the guy didn't die from dehydration, or at least he shouldn't have. The snow shelter was practically new so the guy should't have died from exposure. Their was plenty to eat to stave off utter starvation. So what killed this guy? Anyone know of any backstory lore relating to this area, if you do, please share, please and thank you!
  12. Thanks for asking! I decided to approach my goal via CH. Once I left the Ravine, I pretty much traversed CH without incident accessed PV via the mine network and easily retrieved the record from the convenience store. Subsequently made it to Pensive Pond where I was menaced by a moose. I skirted around the old road where I had my one and only wolf encounter on the PV map leading up to the transmission tower. Got that one without incident as well. Ended up crossing the map straight across, had the revolver out in anticipation but didn't run into any trouble as I made it to the hatch in record time. I ended up transitioning to TWM a few hours before dawn and by the time I got to the mountaineers hut had a full on aurora going. I went for broke and shimmied down the mountain side just to the left of the bear cave sustaining a few sprains on the way down and ended up hobbling past the cargo containers to the cave just in time to recover the final file and complete the challenge for the victory!
  13. Thanks for all the great comments. I guess I should consider myself lucky that I didn't find the firewood hatch! lol But the whetstone is a good and the energy drinks very useful. Not sure if there's food for a month like @ManicManiac mentioned but the foodstuffs will certainly keep me fed until I can find some weapons and get to hunting.
  14. I find myself pretty banged up having just survived another attack from yet another marauding wolf, as I am trekking thru Mystery Lake on the way to the dam to see if I can find a hacksaw. As I am trekking into a head wind, my condition was starting to drop pretty low and with that gnarly head wind holding me back, I seek temporary refuge in the old train car near the log sort. As I am administering to myself, I hear that "uuhh" sound the wolf sometime make when they are close by and drop dead. As I am looking about from the inside of the train car, I see this black shape up the side of the hill. You can make it out if you look pretty much right in the middle of the pic, just to the left of that tree. Being low on supplies I decide I should go harvest the wolf while I have the opportunity. I fix up my gear and start making my way over to the other side. As I make my way around the rock ledge, I finally get a clear view of my goal and Surprise! Not a wolf carcass but a friggin hatch! HA, I actually laughed out loud to myself. Found me a Hatch! Looking back down at the train car from the hatch. So excited to enter this hatch. This is the first time I've found a hatch. I never go looking for them at any rate so this just icing on the cake. I break out my storm lantern and get ready to enter the hatch. Wow, this place musta been here for a very long time. Big tree roots have broken in thru the ceilings and are growing thru the walls. It's been pretty damp in here too as the ladder is covered in snow and icicles. I can't imagine that there's much if anything worth salvaging... I turn around and it's just a little room with a few shelves some crates and a bed. I took the liberty of breaking down the crates to see if there way any loot and I dropped the reclaimed wood where I found the crates. The items on the floor were either on or in the crates. I checked the vent and found a signal flare shell. Mostly just canned goods and some water. No weapons, no bullets, no arrows, no meds either. Whetstone was good to find. File cabinets were empty except one, it had an orange soda in it. I guess this is the legendary food hatch. From the looks of things, who ever built it, musta built it as a fallout shelter, given the poster on the wall. It looks like it may have been used off and on over the years considering the MRE and plastic water bottles. Those tree roots though are huge making me think that this space has been abandoned for a very long time.
