  1. No kidding. I don't get why it isn't present in the game.
  2. To be honest I was so preoccupied with trying to wait out the storm that I didn't even look at that screen until after the fact, but there was no frostbite warning in the status bar, so as far as I was concerned there was no reason to check seeing as the survivor was well above freezing once inside the snow shelter.
  3. Xbox One Sandbox Alpha v. 394 Game Difficulty: Voyager Location: Timberwolf Mountain What happened: Got stuck in a blizzard whilst harvesting carcasses in the debris area nearest the Mountaineer's hut and Bear's cave. I (as the female survivor) was able to gather enough sticks to make a snow shelter and warm up. However, during the night, I gained the affliction of frostbite on my hands without having any preceding frostbite warning and I had only been sleeping for 1-2 hours at a time with no significant temperature decreases. Upon looking at the clothing menu, I saw that multiple items of clothing were frozen. This frozen status was only visible in the menu allowing one to choose what parts of the body clothing covers Now I have a permanent 10 percent reduction in health that could have been avoided if proper warnings had been in place so that I might have had the opportunity to avoid frostbite. Please help?!
  4. I'm not vegan, but I do consider the fact that my food comes from animals, plants, from many places, that there is a lot of hard work that goes into creating a meal to eat long before the ingredients enter the kitchen. So I give thanks to the animals that die for my food, just as I give thanks for the plants that I eat, and for the people involved in the raising and harvesting of said plants and animals for the purpose of food. Death is a part of life and what irks me is when there is waste. You don't simply waste food, and you don't waste parts of an animal. Granted, in the game, I avoid wolf and bear meat because of the parasites (though I understand that on Voyager this isn't a thing and shouldn't worry about it anyway) but I look at it this way, the meat, if not eaten by other animals, will rot, and become part of the earth again. Perhaps, when we see a changing of the seasons implemented, ruined food items will be able to be composted and make growing food easier.
  5. Ah, the easy ways children can be entertained. Your daughter definitely has some good questions though.
  6. I'm surprised no one from hinterland has commented on it yet.... Seeing as widespread it seems to be on Xbox.
  7. In certain areas, like the coastal highway town, I've been attacked by wolf after wolf. I try to make sure I have the rifle and plenty of shells to deal with them though. Still haven't really used bow and arrows yet.
  8. A non-allergic person probably wouldn't be hurt much at all (aside from pain) when stung by bees, though that would depend on the species.
  9. Unless you keep your crafted clothing in the best condition possible for optimum warmth.
  10. This has been happening all the time for me recently.
  11. As I don't usually use snow shelters, I can only say this is present as far as I know since the forlorn muskeg snow shelter has this issue as well.
  12. That prybars can break so easily is ridiculous... Granted, metal tools break sometimes but usually in extreme conditions. Heck, I was even thinking that in addition to prybars, we should be able to refill the sewing kits with thread made either from guts or broken down from fabric.
  13. The message you posted above this one is blank, dude.
  14. I don't normally play other games (except for Minecraft on the Xbox One, as titles are still usually pretty expensive and I do own a 360 as well, but I haven't had that specific message come up for Minecraft or any of the Games with Gold downloads I've accumulated. I was just trying to determine first if any other Xbox players were having the same issue, but it seems either no one else is or I'm a severe minority. I will do that and see what they say. I'll get back to you fine folks with whatever I find out from them MS support. Thanks, @Patrick Carlson and @Support
  15. I have noticed that it's not only wolves that seem to "migrate". I used to see the deer near the trappers cabin more often, but it seems they spawn in other places more often. Yeah, I always just take the guts and skin and leave the meat since there's that risk for parasites because it's a carnivore. I notice when I do this, I have several days before the wolves begin to spawn in again. I only take carnivore meat if I'd otherwise starve.
