  1. Regions untouched by humans

    @gnomegnine : would you please stop exhuming old posts please ? I am no moderator, but all it does is make the reading more complicated. However, that would be interesting if you added new ideas, analysis and suggestions. But right now, I guess everyone is already well aware of the existence of HRV. Thanks !
  2. ''MEAT STEW''

    Well, to be more precise, the pronunciation is quite different for a french, "V" vs "W". And it doesn't mean anything, "Voilà !" is just used to designate & underline something. If used like this, that would mean something like "here's the result, you can admire it !". To go back on the subject of meat stew with our "french touch", you should look for the famous recipe of "boeuf bourguignon".
  3. Shooting with a rifle

    Just like the bow, you should hunt when well rested : the aim swings more when you are tired. Second point is : shoot soon after aiming. Aim regularly to get the "feel" and know where the sights pop up on the screen. You should be able to aim and shoot in less than 2 seconds. Where you shoot depends on your point of view : shoot in the body for sure kill, but you'll have to find the carcass several hours later. If you don't find it, you've lost a bullet. I prefer to get really close to my target and shoot in the head or the neck : critical hits happen very often, and you choose the place you're going to harvest the carcass. Note that for mooses, you can only use the second solution, as they won't bleed out.
  4. Question Thread :: Milton Mailbag

    The custom settings are notorious for not working as intended : for example, many players see next to no difference in wolves' behaviour when changing the value "wolf fear". Other settings sometimes just work randomly. Do you intend to fix the custom mode ? Or, can it be we are wrong and the custom mode is working as intended ? If so, may you someday give us a detailled grid of what every setting precisely do, please ? We have a really hard time getting the setting as we intend them to be, with a lot of frustrating try&miss. Thank you and keep up the good work !
  5. Favorite and most hated MRE!

    Well, to be honest, any RCIR menu would be (IMO !) better than US MRE... [put a proud french flag here !]. Actually, I prefer "rougail saucisse" and "cassoulet supérieur", but menus change over time.
  6. Sense of fulfillment

    Now, THAT's a good innovative idea. Challenges as they are now, are designed to last only a few ingame weeks at most. We now need long-term, hard-to-succeed challenges. Throw in the custom settings, and that will keep us busy for quite some time.
  7. Question Thread :: Milton Mailbag

    What is the explanation for replacing the brand by a torch, and replacing brandishing by throwing ? Is there an explanation, coding problem, or anything else we haven't understood ?
  8. Question Thread :: Milton Mailbag

    May you share with us some of the pictures, drawings, sketches, that helped you design the esthetics of the game ? I was looking at the "fan creations" forums, and thought that it lacked HL's own input...
  9. Favorite and most hated MRE!

    You should try french MRE ("RCIR"). We're not the "country of gastronomy" for nothing.
  10. Question Thread :: Milton Mailbag

    Will we have more "Canadian flavor" added to the game (I'm looking at you, maple syrup) ? I really enjoy that "proud to be canadian" attitude of HTL (even though I'm french), it creates a whole new atmosphere and makes the game stand out.
  11. Milton Mailbag -- Dispatch #3

    Or maybe a difficulty-related option. Well, at worst, future mods will take care of it.
  12. Animal behaviour suggestions

    THIS. Can't find the "overlike this superb post" button.
  13. mod support !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    No problem (I repeat : I'm not a moderator, ask them for more details) : http://www.hinterlandforums.com/announcement/40-rules-and-guidelines-for-the-hinterland-forums/ "No support will be given to those using cheat tools, or hacked/pirated copies, and any forum users who discuss pirated/pirating software will be removed." http://www.hinterlandforums.com/forums/topic/17558-to-mod-or-not-to-mod/?page=2&tab=comments#comment-124738 "As a reminder - we don't currently support mods officially. Please don't discuss game hacks, save editors, cheat engines, or other game-altering software in our official forums. Thank you." http://www.hinterlandforums.com/forums/topic/17457-turn-all-the-way-around-in-a-vehicle/?tab=comments#comment-12355 "we do discourage their use and request that they not be shared in our official communities" You see, I'm not trying to be a jerk, but it's not as if you were the first to suggest mods here...
  14. mod support !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well, I'm not a moderator myself but guys... It has been made clear by HTL that mod discussions are not allowed (yet) on this forum.
  15. What's the benefit of pots?

    It's all about strategy, "what for when". I bring all pots to my bases, especially those with multiple cooking slots (now in milton, preparing for travel in the new river valley). This way the times for preparing water and cooking deer meat is almost the same. You can also make huge amount of water and stockpile it with the same fire. And when travelling, I use cans.
