  1. Today
  2. quite recently i managed to make it to day 80 on stalker! (keep in mind i have never lasted more thandays on any survival run before)
  3. i wish you could kill crows in this game you could find crows standing on the dead bodies of animals and they fly away when the player approaches and maybe even make them stunable with stones and harvesting them would give you 20 feathers 1 gut and 05 - 1 kg of meat. (the meat would give you intestinal parasites)
  4. I've seen Wolves get slower right before they do, but currently they don't limp. I agree though, limping would be a nice touch. As for Wolves howling to call others I'm not really sure how I feel about this...
  5. okay, so deers can only be found as males same with wolves, bears and moose what about if you can find deer with no antlers indicating that its a female or bears with slimmer heads maybe a wolf with less neck fluff and even anterless moose? i know its not really na "feature' but we can all agree that small details in games make the experience alot more enjoyable heck! maybe even the ability to harvest antlers!
  6. so you know how you can shoot a wolf in the knee and have it still run away or wit ha bear you can shoot it in the foot and it just not care at all, what if something that causes animals shot in the leg to run slower or limp was implemented or even fall on the ground unable to move and behave like a wolf thats feeding on a carcasse and then lets say the fallen wolf would howl for help causing the wolves in the area to move closer not giving the player much time to finish the wolf of
  7. Wow that looks cold!
  8. Here's a little IRL video of what you can expect living in a light house during extreme frigid temperatures.
  9. Yesterday
  10. My bad, they are "indoor" caves, indeed. I misspelled it.
  11. That's how I see the story in my mind's eye. Fluffy and her mate found a way into the Dam, through that open window, perhaps. One of them died, probably during one of the first Aurorae, and the wires becoming electrified, and it was not Fluffy. Get hungry enough, and you will eat your dead mate, if it is the only food you can get to. I have had dogs, who were terrified of open-backed stairs, ones they could see through. The stairs going up to the catwalks would have t had them too fearful to try to go up there, util pure desperation set in. Perhaps Fluffy was terrified of those stairs as well, but finally found a way out of the Dam. Wandered around the frozen pond for a while, looking for and calling for her mate. She eventually gave up, and found a way out from behind the Dam, and found her way to her new home, where she was unfortunate enough to become trapped again, or chose to live in the cave, with it's protection from the weather. Perhaps she was a new mother, and this is her den, but no new mate has been found, yet... or perhaps one has. The story can be whatever you want it to be, there is no firm lore from Hinterland that says it cannot be so. They have wonderfully given us a framework to build our own stories on, in Survival, and even a bit in Story Mode as well, grey areas we can fill with our imagination. How many wolves on Great Bear Island are children or relatives of Fluffy and Scruffy, respectively?
  12. There are 2 'indoor' caves (1 cave, 1 tunnel), and one 'outdoors', usually with bones...
  13. You've had a true Interloper! There's nothing to be sad about, any interloper in which you end up sticking arrows in stuff is a success. This is very rare to die to something else, but yes the church is dangerous (the Milton one too), since there are wolves patrols just under the hill, chased deers, chased rabbits... Mourning is part of the process. Soon you'll fire the game again, for revenge. I still remember the death of my lovely Bareskin 7, my last successful interloper. Everythime I pass by this fishing hut, I light a fire. For you it'll be this church!
  14. Well, if I'm not wrong DP has two caves and they are "outside"... or maybe we are talking about the same with different concepts.
  15. Any amount of engy would not be produced in the correct form factor anyway: a stable AC or DC output. Maybe only basic cooking heaters would work, but that's 100s of watts... no water pumps, no ovens, even the torch should not be working.
  16. Maybe Fluffy did escape and another wolf died in there?? Idk but I miss Fluffy.
  17. This is scary. Legends say a deadman committed suicide nearby.
  18. There's a lot of factors that enter into play, particularly where organic chemistry is concerned. But the "in a nutshell" version is if you're eating basically all meat and no carbs, you don't need anywhere near as much vitamin C to survive. You can get all or nearly all the vitamin C you need from eating the liver. Once you start eating carbs, then yeah you need to up your vitamin C intake. But it's never as simple as "You need X many mg of vitamin C every day." It's relative, depending on what else is in your diet.
  19. Soon the wiki contributors will to have to open a "bushtalk" section. I'll write the "Grandma's Fog" entry. BareSkin35- D15 [ Sleepwalker level 8] Last night in Spooky Farmstead I wait a bit doing nothing in the morning (aka reading, then start a fire before noon). Only 2 steaks left: SW8 asks 1 full deer every 2 days. And I still have Efficient Machine... Make some water and tea, test the temperature, and leave for the Red Barn without warmup bonus. I travel with 2 steaks, again, not my style, I’m out of my comfort zone but the visibility is perfect, and a rabbit proposes itself to lead the way. Warmup stop at the inside barrel, leave for Rural with tea, grab a ton of sticks, avoid 2 wolves, then drop a fire near a carcass after finding matches twice and a very nice coat at the gas station. 0.9kg meat is better than the 0 calories found in the station, but it barely pays for my travel, and I take the pelt, because one never has too many (total 4). Tomorrow, I’ll have to travel to that horrible place between rural and the exit, where you get ninja’d so often. I would normally from here transfer to the Dam/Trapper’s/Milton/Forge/retire, but I wanted to try something else. This is probably stupid without a bedroll. BareSkin35- D16 [ Sleepwalker level 8] In the morning I loot the house I slept in: 1.5L water and salty crackers, I then finish my 3rd sewing kit repairing clothes. Still overweighted, but I leave as is, in FL-3. I prefer dropping some goodies in CH trailer after the mine, just in case I live long enough to come back. Can’t leave the pelts, right? This is the end of journal entry for this day, surely because under a lot of stress I forgot to alt-tab until safety (aka a bed) Death bowl 2.0: can't make a fire, too sloppy. Got a heart attack, even if I expected it: see who was waiting for me on top of the frame? Luckily enough, this time the slope was not denying me a defensive fire. Followed the broken tree indication, then said goodbye to Blizzard Valley. Spat on it. Overweight + tons of coal I can't leave, need a software help. I want this trailer so much.
  20. @Wintermute_TLD That's actually a true meme lol... Pleasant Valley... isn't so "Pleasant" LOL.
  21. If the energy was higher maybe, but then Refrigerators would have to work as well, and toilets, and showers, and the list goes on...
  22. This is the very first time the perma death really hurts, and I need some encouragement now ... sorry in advance for the rant! So I spawned in Pleasant Valley. After a few futile attempts this is my 2nd kinda decent try at Interloper. I barely make it out of Pleasant Valley, but I do make it. I am constantly starving, I am cold, but I manage my needs like a soldier and I make it to Winding River and then to Mystery Lake. There, I try to restore my health, which is not an easy task at all, since I am still constantly starving. I explore the whole map, and I catch lots of rabbits, but I am always hungry. There's no bear at trapper's but I find a heavy hammer. In Camp Office I find the magnifying lens. After a few days of eating cattails and sleeping as much as I can, I decide I have to take the trip to Forlorn Muskeg to get to the forge. I get surprised by a blizzard, but I find a hacksaw somewhere amidst all that thin ice. Again, I barely make it, but I do make it. I arrive at the forge with the last two 3% health remaining and spend 3 whole days to recover. I forge 15 arrowheads and a knife. Now a new chapter starts. I will soon have a legit weapon, and I will be able to start hunting. I head back to Mystery Lake and cut Maple and Birch on my way. While the saplings dry, I am starving again. I make a few snares and barely get by. When I craft my bow things will change. No, unfortunately they don't. I kill a wolf in front of Trapper's, but I can't find a bear. I will need a few bear pelts to make a decent bedroll. So after a few days of unsuccessful hunting, I head north. I find a bedroll and there's lots of deer in the Ravine. I reckon there must also be lots of cattails down there at the bottom, so I climb down. I find the flare gun, which is nice, but is has gotten very windy, and I'm freezing. My health is depleting fast. I collect a few cattails (there are not as many as I hoped for) and try to find some sticks. I'm too exhausted to get back up again on the same day, so I try my best not to freeze in the cave. I never sleep more than 1 or 2 hours, since firewood is very limited and I can't have the fire burning all night. I'm exhausted and cold. I eat a few cattails. It wasn't a good idea to climb down here. But again, I make it. I climb back up again, shoot a deer and try to recover a bit. But it's freezing outside and there's not enough firewood to spend more than a single night resting in a cave. What should I do? Accept that I was defeated and try to save my life, going back to Mystery Lake? No, I remember there's a caravan near the entrance of Coastal Highway, and I MIGHT be able to make it. And I do get there, with a few percents of my health remaining. It's nice to be able to warm up in that caravan, but I have no food. As soon as the day begins, I wake up with renewed energy (though not more than 40% of my health) and I decide to follow the river, hoping there's lots of cattails. And there are LOTS. I collect cattails like a madman, all the way down the river, not minding the icy wind. I can warm up in one of the huts near the coastline, I think. Then I hear the bear, it's very close. I have a bow, but nowhere to hide. I have no clue where that bear is, but it sounds close. So I go back up the river and try to find a different route. I have 50 cattails for dinner, but I'm freezing. So I beeline for the nearest cabin. I can see the bear now, and it sprints towards me. But I make it. I have a luxurious dinner for the first time in weeks. Since I have lots of cattails and my health is in serious danger, I decide to spend another night at the cabin. My health is growing back and I enjoy staring at those protective walls. I will continue my adventure the next day, when I am more than 50% restored. The next day, a blizzard hits. I understand it is not likely to meet bears or wolves this time, so I head out and make it to Rabbits' Island, where I restore some more. Then I camp at Misanthrope's. Maybe it's the name, but I seriously love this place. I eat cattails, collect sticks and sleep lots to restore my energy. Maybe I'll head for Desolation Point in a few days. Then I leave the cabin and the bear is right outside the door. I aim and I don't miss. Great, a little more than 3 weeks and I have my first bear pelt. Cattails and matches are depleting fast though, so I decide to explore Coastal Highway some more. I loot the Quonset, and shoot my 2nd bear only 3 days after the first one. I feel invincible. I'm encumbered, but I carry that bear pelt to Misanthrope's to cure. Then I shoot a deer because I have run out of cattails. I'm living quite well now, and if it wasn't for the cold, I could spend all day long exploring. I catch some rabbits too, and shoot some wolves, so I will have lots of hides when I get back from Desolation Point. Also, I'm fishing to fight cabin fever. If only I had Netflix, I could spend months here on Misanthrope's. But I don't and I that's why I think it's time to move on. I make it to Crumbling Highway, and warm up in a cave. I have to be at the Stone Church by the evening. I will make it! I get to the Stone Church, overencumbered with 21 coal, and a nice new book to read. I make a fire, since night falls. I grabbed a rabbit on the way, so I will have a nice dinner. It's getting darker and I am extremely happy with this modest shelter. Then I hear sounds of fighing. A wolf caught a rabbit outside. I have no food left, and that one rabbit won't get me far if a blizzard hits tommorrow. I am wondering if I should try to steal that rabbit, and cure a nice new wolf pelt at the same time. Since decisions weigh heavy, I pause the game to think about it. Feed the kitties, grab a beer. I decide to not do it. I should rather collect some more sticks and I also saw a maple sapling not far. Maybe I should go grab that one. When I get back to the game, I have completely forgotten about the wolf, so I run right into it, with 50% health remaining. I am so surprised that I don't grab my heavy hammer but the knife instead. I totally unnecessarily but quickly bleed to death on day 36. I look at the screen for minutes in disbelief. So this is how you die in Interloper. This time it really hurts.
  23. Nope, Aurora is not a high energy output event. It turns on radio. Barely.
  24. So you know how the lights flash when the aurora is out? It would be awesome if the aurora affected the ovens as well so you could cook in them when the aurora is active, kinda like a fire. Unless they're gas ovens (Short but idk what else to put)
  25. I would love to read that all ^^, but have to highlight it all to do so. Black text on a dark grey background... not so good for some of us older folks with failing eyesight. And highlighting is painful to my old eyes as well. So, being honest here- I only read parts of the response above. I do like the idea of Pine Needle tea, only problem is... we have Cedar and Fir, no pine. But White Cedar Tea is full of Vitamin C, once you pour off the toxic cedar oil that floats to the top. If we have White Cedar... arborvitae. If we have true cedar or Red Cedar, I am not sure if a tea from those needles is safe or not, or of any benefit. Pine would be perfect... if we had pine. Not all trees with needles are Pine. They are all conifers, of the family Pinacea, but each belongs to a different genus in that plant family. Lots of research to determine what particular trees we may have, on a fictitious island, that we don;t know the exact location of, and so many different coniferous trees that are actually toxic of made into tea, or the needles eaten by humans or animals. Again, i like the idea, I have had pine needle tea many times IRL, but knew it was a safe variety of pine needle to use. No clue if I, as a survivor on great bear, would heal myself, or kill myself brewing teas from unknown plants needles.
  26. I will be playing more Voyager, but I think Im gonna stop writing about everything. Just in case something interesting starts happening.
