  1. I was in FM at the time, so that might be why I couldn't keep my boots dry.
  2. All of the stuff in your post was super helpful - I wanted to let you know that you might want to keep on one pair of sock. It was pre-update but I did get frostbite warnings when my boot (not deerskin - hiking) got wet and started to freeze. I didn't have any socks on, haven't had that problem with socks. I just wear them down to a nub and switch to the next set.
  3. when it came to DOS I always figured "retry" meant "can we make the user rage quit and go strangle the programmer"
  4. but retry always just repeated the question... Last game I played with that in it was Alpha Centuri
  5. @Ruruwawa I would be cool with that if they left the orginal quartering option there. I'm finding it a useful strategy in stalker. I don't bother with it on the voyager game.
  6. I mostly use quartering on Stalker and Interloper when I need the meat and the other bits. And I use it during times I can't afford the condition loss I'd take to do the whole caboodle. Reducing the task to just a little bit more than what I'd spend to grab the skin and guts is a great addition. Also, I use it when I know the weather is going to change and I can't afford the condition loss to be harvesting for 2 hours with one of those in a blizzard. I'm also cool with the time - basically, its the time you'd take to harvest the skin and guts plus 10 minutes to chunk the rest of it up into sizes you can carry. So that works for me. Maybe if they wanted to tweek it and give a 3rd option for those who don't care about the pelts and guts of just chunking the meat up and having that take a really short amount of time?
  7. we may have to stage an intervention
  8. I'd report that as a bug
  9. the problem with the scent issue is the wolves will ride a rail to you, this can also be an advantage. As an example I skinned a deer and cooked the meat & ate it. So now just a couple of guts and 1 scent mark. A wolf appeared on the next ridge over running straight at me and the wolf who'd been ignoring my fire realized it was standing RIGHT NEXT to the fire and it ran in a straight line to just outside rifle range turned around and started back at me on that exact line. I shot the 1st mentioned wolf because it was still running at me dropping it close to the fire. The second wolf turned around and ran straight away until just out of rifle range again and then turned around and came straight back at me. Like it was on a rail. Waited until it was close and nailed it in the head. If I hadn't had the rifle it would have been dicier. But now I had two nice wolf carcasses near my sheltered fire, so bonus!
  10. They've updated the mapping so if you're within the normal radius and can see a climbing point, you can map it. So very, very happy!
  11. I'm having some sort of glitch where the knife isn't working at all in most games, so I just die
  12. They're attracted even when the scent marker isn't up - like when you're just carrying 1 fresh gut
  13. I'm finding using the knife is a good way to die, the crowbar looses alot of condition, and the hammer works nice and quick but they come back nice and quick. So I'm pretty much going with the hatchet if its in my inventory.
  14. that sound you heard was everyone rushing off to see if they could duplicate the glitch because while it probably was really irritating it sounds kind of cool.
  15. I enjoyed this!
