  1. Resources wise you are correct. However if you need the food etc and cannot afford to have it get lost or you are looking to level up skills then more hits serves those goals. Comes down to what you are trying to do. My survivor never assumes indefinite survival alone, always assumes he or she will find someone else so resource conservation especially at the early stages is not at the forefront of the mindset. Getting something in the belly fast is. :-)
  2. If the time it takes to bleed out means I can't find it to harvest it then it's a waste. If I don't get that arrow back it is a bigger waste.
  3. I have one shot killed a bear with a bow it can be done in the face or a couple other spots. I tend to lure then to the fishing hut or under a tree I can climb then I can hit them easier
  4. I play the bow all the time. Once I move to a new camp I clear it of bears with the rifle first then hunt with the bow
  5. On Linux you run thru steam yes? Steam for PC is 32 still I think so that could be where the limitation is ?

  7. I had limbs I could not harvest right behind waterfront lodges in ML . Was gathering wood to live in the cave a few days and there were two logs I could see but not harvest couldn't walk around in any direction or crouch cut etc. Seemed odd. Was able to harvest next day after sleep.
  8. Depends on where the bear is and your weather. If you can build a long lasting fire harvest all the meat and cook it even at low skill that amount of cooking boosts you up skillwise but it's tough to do it in the open and given weather issues.
  9. What is truly fun is shooting an arrow at a green wolf who takes off then poof disappears...with your arrow! Grrr
  10. Those of you snipers who got the achievement how did you gauge the distance? I have hit a few at a good distance apparently no far enough so looking for a few pointers please
  11. Need gut and hide fast you get them quick Middle of storm can't be out long enough Big animal quarter is short time take hide and gut and some food go back inside warm up while you harvest. Makes sense on bear will work on moose/elk when we see them, or bigger deer.
  12. I have been asked by the team on occasion to note non bugs (enhancement requests) in the bug database. They do see them there and handle them differently but this way they don't get buried in the forum
  13. Maple glaze on those nuts? I mean it's Canada eh and no syrup! ;-)
  14. So what do you see as the bonus or use of all the items meaning you said fly gets you small fish, but what a higher probability of catching? You burn resources and calories to make it so it can't be worthless as the empty hook. Assuming each level of fishing also adds to the ability to better use each lure yes? Chart up what you envision and add it as a suggestion on the public bug database. If you put it there HL does see it and it stands a better chance of them thinking about it versus here. I think you are onto a decent idea
  15. GM makes a yummy soup in story mode;-)
  16. Depending where I am searching.... In a group of buildings daytime I'm fine, night or Dawn dusk I make a big fire pull several torches extinguish each right away then start search with last one. Go thru buildings lighting new torches as needed from dying ones. If I know one or more have fireplaces or stoves I can light a new fire from twigs with burning torches to make more torches
  17. It would appear that with 8 patches we are starting to be somewhat stable for Wintermute. Sure there is more to go but in general, stable. So, that begs the question....what is the timeframe on the new things we were supposed to get in the survival mode? Any chance @Mel Guille or @Patrick Carlson might give us a little teaser? Sure we got 1 new map and a few things updated on other maps, but that map clearly leads to other places even though Raf won't give us the key to unlock the gate. :-) I know everyone was working on story mode hard, it shows, and it does well, but I need to hunt me some moose lol.
  18. Personally only @Timber Wolf's answer matters given their relationship
  19. I can confirm it is locked when u get there. Been to it. Without the rope either....it's not easy but think outside the box
  20. Yes the other side of the broken railroad. When you stand there u can see across and the map on the start screen when u pick br shows there is land there
  21. Have you been to the other side of the broken railroad? I started another stalker and dang four wolves outside the yard and no gun just a hatchet no sewing kit either. Loads of bandages from the cloth at the lodge so I'm gonna nekkid firght the wolves one at a time so I get a couple days of them leaving me alone. With no weapon I'm kina bumming. I have yet to see a birch sapling gotten a couple maples though and no arrow Head may have to run to the forge
  22. Ah yes fishing would help however I wish I could move the wires when the aurua is not present because I keep getting zapped as I forget to look down when it comes.
  23. Over 800 hours and still don't have it. Nearly done but I don't make a lot of fires I have learned how to live with less and less fire and I never play interloper only stalker. So the best way make a lot of fires that you don't need. Short in duration light one fire from another to not waste matches
  24. I haven't been able to catch a screenshot but right over wills right shoulder I keep seeing a right arm dangle at the beginning of the encounters with grey mother. Arm has green shirt sleeve if that helps
  25. FYI he can be killed early....takes a very steady instakill shot but it can happen. I know it can. Did it early myself. On 5th encounter he charged nearly got me but by position could not have gotten me(those that know how to do this will understand) I won't divulge in here. It has been talked about before in beta forums Fun I may do story mode all over again as I missed a few things
