  1. LOL. Yes, the music going down the long hallway is what I'm referring to. Doesn't play anymore, obviously, because Fluffy...had an accident. It certainly did ramp up the scariness of it all, though.
  2. You may be right, as I'm sure there's sound effects/small sections of music not listed in the OST. I do however remember playing an early version of the game, going down the stairs in the Dam and hearing high strings that sent my Dread Meter up to 100 lol. It may not have been the sound I linked above but it was something to that effect.
  3. If anyone's curious to hear what the 'going down the Dam stairs/hallway to meet Fluffy' music was, I think I might've found it on YouTube: Creepy, man...
  4. I still would love to hear "regional music" - songs or stings that play in only certain areas or regions. There used to be a really high-tension sting that would play as you walk down the stairs and through the hallway of the Dam - back when Fluffy could still spawn. Always made my fear that much worse lol. There also used to be short horror-esque tunes that would play upon approaching a human corpse, which would also kind of give me the creeps. Really sad they decided to take those out. Heck, I'm really upset about a lot of the decisions they made. But hey - they're the developers here..
  5. Well, I'm not sure that's it's been all that long. Makes sense if you think about it. When looting fridges/freezers you sometimes find meat in decent condition. Electricity has been out for as long as the place has been abandoned, so for the meat to stay fresh enough to still be safe to eat, it can't have been, let's say, over a year since the last human was around. This is assuming that the devs took this thought process into account, though.
  6. I was looting one of the Waterfront Cottages in CH. The one with the dead guy next to the bed. There was a cabinet right next to him, so I looted it and got a Water Bottle. My character went "Wonder if the owner's nearby?" and I LOL'd. In over 500 hours of gameplay I'd never heard this line before.
  7. This post deserves more attention. By taking this path on your way back to the Lower Dam, you can completely avoid the area where the wolf patrols.
  8. I've wondered how co-op would work, myself. In the very, very early stages of development of the game, it was said that it would be possible, in time, to perhaps run into other survivors on your journey (I can find the source of Raph saying this if anyone wants). But the game has yet to implement multiplayer even now, and they have no current plan to. Much of the team's plans for the game has been altered as it's gone through development over the years. They originally planned to have fully-animated first-person actions for eating and drinking by the time the game was released, and that has taken a different route. The passing of time, breaking down objects, sleeping, cooking, etc. are core functions of the game, and for those to be altered in any significant way would possibly negatively impact the experience overall. With that said, I cannot blame the team for not wanting to implement multiplayer or co-op. I, like many others, would love to see it happen SOMEHOW, though. I think if co-op is ever going to come to the game, we'll have to leave it in the hands of crafty and skilled mod developers once mod support is released.
  9. Bears are easy to avoid. They are very loud and slow, and are followed by the sound of cawing ravens. You can hear them coming from quite a safe distance, so I'd be much more worried about the wolves, who are smaller and much quieter. If you're still having trouble finding a rifle in Mystery Lake, let me know and I'll give you a list of rifle spawn points to check and see if one is there.
  10. suggestion

    That reminds me - in Quonset, on one of the workbenches there is a Basin (bowl-lookin' thing) which holds a small amount of Non-potable Water. Not many people tend to notice it.
  11. Agreed. Always stay hydrated, water is an infinite resource. Food, however, is harder to come by.
  12. This is very easy, but not bad! I'll let someone else answer this though, I have no screenshots to follow up with right now..
  13. I'd say it's safe for you (or anyone, really) to go ahead and post somethin. Let's get this train rolling again!
  14. A bit late, but I'm working on Coastal Highway right now. Just for you
  15. It's been awhile since anyone posted here and I'd hate to see this thread die! Should we start a new picture, or have people continue to guess the current?
