  1. Fishing Milton Basin

    Fishing in Milton should be possible for sure. Maybe the hut is dilapidated or maybe just a long treck from the run down cabin (it's not a long walk in TWM from cabin to hut but there is peril nearby....
  2. No rifle spawn in Mountain Town

    Climbing area hut had one for me
  3. The amount of Spam posts lately seems far greater than before. Is there something needing some tuning on your forum server or a patch to the software? It gets old to see it and there are kids in the forums as well as less savvy users who might fall for that crap.
  4. +1 for a test branch now! Only reason I come to the forums is to find out if there is one that I can go get for that exact reason.
  5. How to shoot a bear without getting mauled

    I was so used to the one on CH and hiding in a hut there I totally didn't think he could do it. I was stunned. He took my flare gun, my only weapon. I managed to limp to it. Made my way to to cottage with him right behind me. Shot him and ran inside the hut. Woke up after some healing to a lump of bear meat. So I cut him up and cooked him to raise my skill level.
  6. How to shoot a bear without getting mauled

    I learned the hard way not to shoot from a fishing hut. I did it in ML at the hut nearest his cave. He came right in and cornered me. It hurt a lot
  7. So you ARE listening to the customer! Fabulous! If only more companies actually did that. Thanks!
  8. Create your own Sandbox

    Plenty of threads on it. Basically an insistence on story mode (we see how well that went) and an insistence on their definition of balance. Sandbox has been the overwhelming success in the game and they still insist they know better than the ones buying it. At least that's what I have gleaned from several years here and 1k hours playing. But I could be wrong
  9. Check your patches and options on the forum server

    Thanks for letting us know
  10. The Long Dark in real life

    Someone doesn't like his newspaper eh? The diet soda cracked me up
  11. Can't say for sure they go longer. But louder shots should ring out and they should be attracted to farther noise if they hear it. So if they go farther away they would take longer to get to you
  12. Toss a bunch of rocks in a far direction he will go look at them usually. Try to hit a rock or tree to make extra noise
  13. Fix uselessness of certain things

    In previous posts someone had suggested a change around that type of thing
  14. Fix uselessness of certain things

    Skill book rereading is nice because it takes away the ability to burn them. Once you read them you can burn them but if you do...there goes the ability to reread... forever! Cost/benefit there
  15. Let's Talk NPC's In Sandbox

    NPCs if only to mess up your camp and steal your stuff (hoarders be damned) or bring you news of new regions /Intel on what they have seen or share a map with you that they made? Somehow you have to have the possibility that you come back to a busted up camp and missing items from a bear attack or another survivor trying to get off the island. Nothing as immersive as story mode though.
  16. Gotta find one of those old meat logs and eggnog as well as +1 to fruitcake Eggnog would have a %chance of being bad so food poisoning lol
  17. Fix uselessness of certain things

    The reality is it would still burn and add burn time to a fire. If sticks add a few minutes tinder bundles should at least add something one would think. As for can opener it is a good tool to fix my hacksaw
  18. Bring back Fluffy

    There is a bit of a challenge in the damn if the aura is on. You fry on the wires. Sure you can get around it if you know how new players do not. As was posted ML is meant for newer players to learn and not experienced players. It is up to you to try different things and levels. Tired of ML try new maps, tired of pilgrim try stalker etc. The game has a lot to offer
  19. Starvation Mechanic Suggestion

    All you need to do is watch survivorman Les Stroud and see how he reacts when he can't find calories on his survival show.
  20. New Region: Deep Woods

    I started reading and was like...yay I gotta go back and play this game then my heart sank when I realized it was a suggestion not a new unlocked region. Good idea though
  21. Guns! Guns! Guns!

    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. :-)
  22. Guns! Guns! Guns!

    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.
  23. Guns! Guns! Guns!

    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
  24. Guns! Guns! Guns!

    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
  25. 64 bit executable to eliminate slow loading screens

    On Linux you run thru steam yes? Steam for PC is 32 still I think so that could be where the limitation is ?
