  1. Milton Mailbag -- Dispatch #13

    Are you referring to where the lever on the bolt is, and how it's not as far to the back of the bolt in our model as it is on the real Lee Enfield? If so, I'd say this just an error on our part, although seems like a fairly minor detail. If we can fix it easily without having to redo the entire animation, we will. I'm glad to know I'm not the only Enfield nut on here! In truth the bolt handle has bugged me for quite a while, glad to hear your interested in fixing it. While we're on that subject, a .303 cartridge looks nothing like the one in game, .303 has a real steep taper and is "rimmed" on the bolt end. Also, the cartridge in game has a dimple on the primer; an unfired round shouldn't have one. The dimple is the mark the firing pin makes when it strikes the primer and detonates the round. Cheers guys, I love these Q&A sessions! Sam
  2. Question Thread :: Milton Mailbag

    Some time ago, there was mention made of crafting for safehouse customization, and it was hinted that items (like the toy tractor) *might* become collectable, is that still in the works or....? Sam
  3. Milton Mailbag -- Dispatch #8

    Just for the record, I think this Q&A thing is brilliant. Makes it FEEL like a small time studio with all the warm and fuzzies associated with that. A quick story on that subject... (Warning, ramble alert!!) One of my hobbies is old vehicles (1970's era ford pickups to be precise) and a while ago I called a small company in California that makes hotrod/hop up/cool guy parts for old engines (Offenhauser Equipment). I wanted to ask about the feasibility of them adding a new valve cover to their product line (for a Ford 300-i6). They already make intake manifolds for the motor, so a valve cover would be a logical addition. Lo and behold, who answers the phone but the CEO of the company!! We had a great conversation, we talked about the company, their current products, financial issues (a wooden pattern would need to be made to cast molds of of, then those molds would need to be filled with molten aluminum. All of this consumes lots of time and therefore $$$) and then other things like final cost of product, market potential etc. It was great, for me it highlighted the best part of small businesses; accessibility. Where else could I call and talk directly to the CEO of a company?? (End of ramble) These Q & A sessions give that same kind of small company feeling, I like it. Makes us feel appreciated. Sam
  4. Beds and better cars

    I like it, count me in for this one. I've long thought that we should have colder interiors, and a mechanic where blankets add to a bed's warmth would be an excellent way to counter balance that, besides a fire of course. Blankets in a car is a good idea too. Sam
  5. Question Thread :: Milton Mailbag

    Question, could episodes One and Two possibly be re-released before episode Three? By a week or two? Because, as much as I'd really like to play them over before No 3, I suspect the overwhelming desire to know what happens in No. 3 will mean I'll go straight to it. You know what they say, "I can resist everything except temptation" Sam

    You can cook the meat on the rock next to the campfire, no pot needed. Sam
  7. Pattern 1914 Enfield rifle

    You probably have a better chance at it, I'm in the states. Not sure what the import laws between here and Canada are. As a side note, I haven't been able to tell if they've completely replaced them yet either. Apparently they're having some teething issues with the new Sako/Colts. For me the whole problem is really pretty simple, the No4 Enfield has worked beautifully for decades, so why not just build some brand new No 4 enfields?? Make the barrel out of stainless and shorten it to 20", bed it into a nice laminate stock. And of course keep the handguard, nose cap and sight protector for style points. Now that would be a sweet rifle! Sam
  8. Pattern 1914 Enfield rifle

    I could get behind that! I'm actually looking for a decent Long Branch No4 to add to my collection... I would really like to get my hands on one that the Rangers used. Rumor has it they'll be surplussed once they finish replacing them with the new Sako/Colt rifle. As far as gameplay differences, the only thing I propose changing is the 3d model. They would all function, weigh and behave exactly the same way. I would even keep the descriptive text the same as it's always been, and use it for all of them. What I would like is more variety, for the same reason we have granola bars, beef jerky and chocolate bars. They serve the same purpose, but it adds variety to the game. Sam
  9. More weapons

    Actually, one thing @Dargot mentioned that I would really like to see implemented is gunsmithing and reloading. The devs expressed some interest in this a while ago, unfortunately, I don't think it will happen anytime soon. they have a lot on their plate as is. Sam
  10. Pattern 1914 Enfield rifle

    I'm going to revive this thread real quick, just to get a few more eyes on it... Sam
  11. More weapons

    I'm not opposed to adding more guns to the game, but, I really don't want it to turn into a FPS. I advocate adding some more .303 caliber rifles to the game, just for some variety, (a P14 Enfield, and a Martini Enfield) but lots of different calibers, plus shotguns and pistols gets to be a bit much. IMHO, it just gets to complex and distracts from the focus of the game. Sam
  12. I have an M24/47 aswell, that is a NICE rifle! I agree on the ammo though, it's $$$ and hard to find. The best place is online, Privi Partisan makes 8mm Mauser and it can be had for $15 a box. Sam
  13. Mountaineering Rope Recycled

    2 ropes + 50 sticks + 4 hours = rope ladder, dramatically reduces fatigue from climbing and allows climbing while encumbered. Sam
  14. Dev Diary — May 2018

    x2, I'll take small and dedicated team over a big but uncommitted team anyday Sam
  15. Question About This Truck

    Interesting! Never knew it was there... I suspect we'll learn more about it in the next episode. Aside from that, it's a standard truck for transporting ocean containers (aka cans or connexes). They could have literally anything in them. After they deliver their goods from China/Korea/Japan etc, they either get loaded and sent back, (side note, one of the biggest exports going BACK to asia is logs, and they go back in cans!) but since FAR more goods are imported than exported, they get sold off to private companies or individuals. Then they wind up as cheap dry storage, get used to build temporary buildings, used as mobile offices on job sites, etc etc. They're INCREDIBLY handy. Sam
