:D I tend to use the rifle as a glorified cracker. 90% when it's an 'effective' shot it means I scared the wolf off with the bang.

Have you given up on crafting the bearskin bedroll? I thought it would help tremendously since you can take the can and another item.

Not at all, but it'll become craftable only just before I have to leave, the second bear hide isn't cured yet. But don't worry, I did the maths, and it's gonna be ready for when I leave. The last problems is finding a good snares spot in OIC, cause I can live only so many days on deer carcasses.

I see your guy is hanging out in the same place my guy is. I used to hate DP (I've croaked there lots) but I've come to really like it now. Mind you, on day ~650 those snares are a LOT less productive; I've got four out in the exact same spot you do and I'm only pulling a rabbit every three or four days.

I think there is another mechanism in place for you, i.e. resource exhaustion for a given map. I should not have this problem *fingers crossed*.

- Next morning: 3 rabbits for 6 snares since last morning.

- Efficiency is enough to maintain a Cinderella in OIC if all snaring spots are created equal

- The 3 rabbits, as expected, give me Harvest5

- Around noon, last travel to Hibernia for taking some tea to warmup before Prince Charming meetup

- I take the reishis, and the wolf pelt. Yes, the one who killed my lil'bro Bareskin27. I’ll put my skinny ass on it while waiting for midnight.

- Can’t believe I leave so many matches and some much food.

- Can’t believe I’m actually repairing clothes just for practising Mending

- I tear down 2 thin wool sweaters, and 2 military coats, crying on them.

- Eat some canned food before my last big sleep-heal back to 100% health.

- Only two days before the big night! I hope it’s gonna be as sweet as in a Disney.

- On my way to the Church, I have no father. But I meet a moose. I’ll have to go there via the mine.

- Never seen this Moose before, no wonder he’s killed @tulkawen before, he chose the only chokepoint of the map, the Bridge.

- Bear near the mine, it’s big-game-day today…

-It’s actually respawn day, since I find 5 coals that weren’t here yesterday evening

-4 rabbits on 6 snares, I replace the 4 snares but I know I’ll probably never see them again

- harvesting 1kg rabbit barehands takes 15min (+56calories) with harvest5: I can pull 2 rabbit for every complete cycle of watermaking

- Begin crafting the bedroll

- temperature science during the day while sharpening knife

It seems that Voyageur actually doesn't drop the temperatures over time that much. In Interloper, that's brutal.

Seems there's a baseline, modified with "cold morning" option. There's also a "blizzard" modifier (this -24°C right in the afternoon)

- The snow shelter option seems like an always-possible solution in Voyageur, just need to sleep in the afternoons, and away from patrolled paths.

- Since the last Milton Dispatch, I pronounce Voyageur correctly, with my very nice french accent :D

- I remove all my clothes, for mental training. And for washing a bit before the big day, it's been 28days I didn't wash.

- craft and cook some tea, I leave it near the fire for night 30 to brake the ice with my lover.

- Cook rabbit in the evening for tomorrow's romantic dinner 

- When I can't craft the bedroll anymore, I go for my last lonely night

He chokepointed more than the bridge. He got me under the bridge when I was checking the truck. If I ever spawn at DP on Loper, no way hose am I going near that truck within rifle shot. Forget the possible prybar spawn, I'm not getting my ribs in a twist.

Interesting statistic. It seems the temp is coldest between 6 and 8 am. I'd have thought it would be during the night around 3am.

Edit: Actually, he didn't kill me. Just reduced my health to 40% during the first hour of my game and then I froze limping to Hibernia.

Since there is no living deer nearby, you could here it without any doubt before being in any danger range.

It seems that the baseline temperatures is divided into 2 chunks of 12h, I often see disruption (lack of continuity) around noon. The mornings see a lot of variations, while afternoon seems pretty much always the same.
