  1. After having spent almost 1,500 hours playing TLD, I'm pretty sure that the bear is female.
  2. Would be cool if the survivor could create a zipline between attachment points by climbing to the higher one, attaching a line or rope or something, then throwing it over, going back down, and attaching it at the other end. Would be a challenging thing to do, and a cool reward.
  3. I like some variant of this idea of connecting players, but it would have to be done such that it's not OP. It would have to choose a random player to give the item to so you couldn't pass items to your future self, for e.g. Maybe the item also disappears after a certain amount of real (calendar) time, so if I put my extra Wolf Skin coat (which I think I actually have 2 extras..) in the bin, if someone happens by the bin in the next 24 hours, they can claim it. I'd love it if you could do this that you could include a note with it, and maybe the recipient could optionally write a thank yo
  4. If flint rocks are added, I would suggest that firestarting with them should require: Flint rock Knife (for steel), or scrap metal Charcoal (you need charred material to catch the spark) Only if you have all three could you start a fire this way. I would also suggest that the charcoal is consumed in the process, but that the flint rock and knife just lose condition.
  5. Umm, just wondering how you survive for any length of time with no animals and no plants, especially if loot is set to low (hardest setting)... What do you eat when all the carcasses are gone?
  6. It's not 8 hours to go from anywhere to anywhere else, except maybe in Dead Man when you have to stop and take care of yourself while travelling. That said, "Challenge Accepted!" I'll set up a new Pilgrim game and make the trip. Will report back. Probably won't be for a week or so due to other commitments...
  7. Agree. Maybe something you could do with the milling machine... Can't think what would be so useful though. By the time I could get to the point where I'd be able to (for e.g.) mill a gun, I'd probably have archery 5 and wouldn't want to carry a gun around anymore. Or maybe just a particularly useful piece of equipment, like a frame pack that gives +5kg (on top of the moose satchel)?...
  8. Wow, to me this sounds like a completely different game than the one I've played over 1,300 hours of.
  9. Neat idea. Have you tried doing this? One time I went to the vista location on CH and when I mapped it, it showed a wolf carcass I had lost. That was useful. I wonder if the second time I go if it would update? Maybe this already works this way...
  10. I didn't expect to like this idea, but I kinda do. I'm at the point in my current Birchman game where I have full skins, 17 arrows, a TON of bear meat just waiting for cooking 5, easy access to deer meat whenever I need it. I was thinking of striking out for a new map, but it seems like that wouldn't be much of a challenge. It might be cool to think that somewhere on one of the maps is a secret "new thing" that I've never found before. Man, I would spend the rest of my game looking for that thing... As it is now, I'm torn between continuing and starting over.

    Yes, would be useful from my perspective to be able to refill a jerry can with lantern fuel from other fuel bottles.
  12. I get what you're saying, and definitely sympathize. When I started, I got lost constantly and it was frustrating. Then one day it all sort of "clicked" and I started recognizing things and knowing my way around, and I have to tell you when that happens, it's a kind of joy that I haven't had in any other game, because I know it wasn't just my character levelling up, but *me* levelling up. I don't want to tell you how to play or what you should ask for, but I'd encourage you to give it a bit more time and see if maybe you'll get to the point where you're happy that the game didn't give you this
  13. I avoid wolf struggles with general success. In rare cases I get jumped and use the knife. It's very easy to recover condition on Interloper, so I'm usually more bummed at the ruined clothing than the condition loss.

    revers calendar

    Yes, this is an excellent idea! Or at least an option to re-sort like you can your inventory.
  15. I think this is a cool idea, and love that it's optional. That said, I think you could "pretend" re-create this scenario yourself if you're disciplined enough to follow the rules. Play Interloper for 1,000 game-days *without* summiting Timberwolf Mountain (you can use the one in Ravine) Go to the Pleasant valley radio tower during an aurora to "find" the location of the flare gun Summit Timberwolf to get the flare gun Make the trek to either Desolation point or (even better) the destroyed lighthouse in Bleak Wait for a clear night and fire the flaregun Survi
