  1. I realize that you guys may be waiting for a "Big Release" but the suspense is killing me! It's March now and we've got nothing! We're still on Version 0.393! Can we at least get the Moose for Sandbox? Please? That's all I'm asking for: The Moose.
  2. So, I'm on the Nomad Challenge and trying to beat the challenge (not hard, just long) and get some achievements along the way. Somehow, I got Pacifist Achievement, but this doesn't make any sense considering that I killed at least 5 wolves along the way via attacks. When you fight back, you kill them, and I even harvested the bodies, so I'm not sure what's going on here. P.S. I wasn't sure if this was a bug report or if this was intended, so I placed it here.
  3. Personally, I'd hate the idea of requiring light to place down a bedroll. I like AZHockey's idea of a time limit, but don't like the idea of limiting subsequent attempts.
  4. Unfortunately, this only applies to real-life, because these items aren't in-game (yet). So, I'm just curious, what is everybody's 3 things that you absolutely must have where you go, for whatever situation may arise? For me, it's: Rubbing Alcohol Mineral Oil Shipping Tape For a lot of people, they prefer "Duct Tape", because it's strong and can make the crappiest crafting actually work. But I prefer Shipping Tape because it's not as harmful to whatever you use it on (i.e. a vehicle, your body (ouch), or generally something that you don't want to damage). The same principle applies to the Rubbing Alcohol and Mineral Oil. Mineral Oil replaces what most people would choose WD-40 for, because it's not nearly as strong, but it is a Light Lubricant and almost always gets the job done, without harming anything it's applied to. Rubbing Alcohol can be used to removed sticky-substances, such as, Stickers or Tape on surfaces that you want to protect. It also has several other uses, such as, Medical or Fire-Starting, as well. Was just curious about you guys and gals' opinions on this and what you'd choose.
  5. A bug, maybe? I've started fires with Lit Flares, Lit Torches, Lit Matches, and Branded Sticks. On my 50 Day Voyager Sandbox Save, I have Level 3 Fire-starting skill and can successfully "transport" my fire by using Branded Sticks and, essentially, "bunny-hopping" my fire from one place to another. It has to still be actively lit and have at least 1-10% of burn left to work (not clear on the exact details of the life remaining).
  6. I prefer to "lure" them out, then hit them one-by-one in melee, close-ranged combat. I took out a pack of 3 wolves that were guarding MY FISHING HUT in Mystery Lake, during a single day, once. That was fun. Also, play some Stalker and Interloper, and beat The Hunted, Part One challenge, and it'll make life on Voyager so much easier.
  7. I was just asking based on experience with the Challenge: Whiteout. I was harvesting a wolf carcass when out of nowhere came a full-on blizzard in 1.5-2 hours (during the harvest). I was far enough away from the one wolf and there was no other wolves in the area (I listened to their howls and there was only one howl and it was in front of me by about 200 yards). The problem was that I was on the iced ocean parts of Coastal Highway - so, I had serious trouble finding even so much as a Fishing Hut! I was following along the stuck logs - farther out towards the ocean and away from the Log Hut - and eventually found a Fishing Hut. Somehow, either the same wolf that was 200 yards in front of me or another wolf spawned, but there was a Wolf right next to the Fishing Hut. It came from behind me, attacked me out of nowhere (never heard so much as a growl), and almost killed me! I dropped down to 11% before getting warm, again, and sleeping for 2 hours. I didn't see him, hear him, or anything of the sort, but somehow that blizzard just didn't affect him. At this point in time, I actually question whether they built it into the AI of the animals as to whether the Blizzard is an encounter-able object for them or not. I know that we're still in Alpha, and that sometimes the realism of it all gets to you, but if this is the case, then I hope they change it soon. Blizzards should affect animal smells, hearing, sight, etc. the same as a Human - if not, more-so, due to the Wind Shifts and brute force of it. Well, your last posting of the story puts you at the Main Cabin - did you use a Light Source to search the Workbench? I can't tell you how many times I almost missed a "Line" and "Hook" on the Workbench, because they blend in sooooooooooo well with the background and colors. I've got my graphics set to max and I still almost miss them with a Fully Lit Lantern. Also, I don't know what cave you spoke of - the one where you said you dropped Fresh Gut in to "Cure" - but you're coming to a full circle, now, so it might be smart to double-back through the cave.
  8. So, I've read up to the latest posting, and I'm loving this story, but I'm a bit astonished by the fact that you claim the Flare Gun WORKS on OB!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have to admit, I didn't actually try the Flare Gun, but I've tried Flares, Branded Sticks, and actual Campfires. I mean he has, literally, run through open campfires before and completely ignored it - dead center through the fire. I do have some questions/concerns though. Are you sure that you left the Bedroll in the Fishing Hut? Because when you're attacked by Wolves (or, even OB, himself) you tend to drop items. For me, the most common items are: Bedroll, Clothes, Fire-related, and Food items. I've noticed that OB has some sort of a hard cap/soft cap/limit to his mauling capabilities. When you first get attacked by him, you drop down to 10-15%. Then, if you get attacked by him, again, right after that, then he'll drop you down to 1-3%. If you heal up and recover life, but get attacked at 50%, then it drops down to 10-15%, again. If you heal up to 85%-100%, then he drops you down to 10-15%, again. The cap seems to be not-able-to-kill you. I've died at least 15 times in this challenge, and not a single time was to the actual bear. So, your logic to reach 90% life prior to going outside and risk encountering the bear was odd to me. The wolves, I get, but OB won't kill you - not in my experience. In the beginning, you said that you're "not worried about OB during a blizzard" - does this mean he won't attack you/can't find you during a blizzard? Lastly, do you mind some spoilers? You're in Mystery Lake and I know an area that almost always has some "Line" and a possibility of a "Hook" on the Workbench. Message me if you want to know where.
  9. So, I was in Pleasant Valley, on Stalker. Was trying to make it to Mystery Lake, but a lovely snow storm hit me out of nowhere! Quickly was freezing to death, and couldn't see anything (barely see the road). So, I found a hollow tree and took shelter there. Quickly started a fire and piled tons of wood on it to warm me up faster. I then quickly drank and ate. But I'm sitting there, and while I was cooking some food, I noticed an oddity... my life was dropping! 2%.... 1%..... WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Apparently, I died of Exhaustion, and didn't notice it till the absolute very last second, but it was too late by then. Seriously. Middle of a snow storm, max Warmth, max Thirst Quenched, and max Hunger Sated, but I died of Exhaustion. Yep. That happened.
  10. So, this seems like an oddity to me, and not game-design, but when I eat Tomato Soup (hot or cold) it provides no Hydration - only 300 Calories for food. I know that other canned goods, such as, Dog Food, Sardines, etc. provide hydration, but Tomato Soup certainly seems like it should provide a lot more hydration than Dog Food.
  11. Hi, Devs/Forum Mods. I have no possible idea of how you guys can fix this exploit that I found, but I thought I'd report it, anyways. So, in other games, a common exploit to counteracting Darkness is by changing the Gamma. You can't do that here while in-game, which is good, but you can use the Sleeping Bag placement to determine your surroundings in total, pitch-black darkness. You can use the Menu to bring it up, then purposefully never attempt to place it down - even when in "red" (indicating that it cannot be placed down) it'll reveal surrounding furniture legs, outline, etc.
  12. So, when you open a container that allows you to store items in, if you go to the Clothing section, then it shows Check Marks for items that you're wearing. Well, ever since the latest update that allowed you to store items inside of containers, there's been a bug with the Check Marks. In this screenshot, every single item that is in my inventory (on the left-hand side) I am wearing; however, two of these items do not have Check Marks. This is extremely common for every container, no matter what clothes, and it doesn't seem to do it for the same clothes all the time.
  13. Actually... I did that, on purpose, in the challenge: The Hunted, Part One. I was tired of dying and figured I'd rather die from a fall, than a bear. To my surprise, I lived, unscathed! I've done it at least 8 times now, and it works every time.
  14. Hi Devs/Forum Mods. I am currently attempting to complete the challenge: Whiteout. I'm still located at Coastal Highway and was exploring until a Blizzard hit out of nowhere. I took shelter inside of a Fishing Hut, lit a fire that lasted 2.5 hours, and slept for 8 hours. Then, I woke up and it said: "2 Hours of Darkness Left". I was a bit distressed due to a unexpected wolf attack prior to taking shelter in the Fishing Hut and decided to repair my clothes (it's still Night Time). Well... it worked! I was shocked, and proceeded to repair another 2 sets of clothes. Hope this helps!
  15. Unfortunately, there's not an actual "unstuck button" in the game (to my knowledge), but there is a way around this, while maintaining the save file. So, first thing's first, you need to understand exactly where the game saves at. It saves when: You go to sleep for at least 1 hour. You pass time by at least 1 hour. You enter or exit an "instanced" doorway/house. You acquire a medical condition change - either gain something new or lose something harmful. This includes Coffee, Herbal Tea, and Medicines. Now, knowing this, when you get stuck, remember the last time that one of these occurred, then hit "Escape" on your keyboard -> Click "Exit" and confirm losing save progress. You'll go back to this last occurrence, and you'll lose what was progressed prior to getting stuck, but it's better than losing the entire save!
