  1. AHHHHHHHHHHHH MAKESHIFT CLOTHING I'M SO EXCITED BY THIS!!!!! Finally a use for my 51 cloth...

    I'm sure this has been mentioned before, but I couldn't find it. It occurred to me the other day when I was crafting up some bunny mittens that it would make sense for the mending skill to apply to crafting clothing, too. It's all sewing. Then I pondered, as I looked at the 51 cloth in my bag, how useful it would be to be able to create rudimentary clothing. Nothing involved or detailed, like probably not socks or long johns, but if you can shape deer hide into a pair of pants, why wouldn't you be able to do that with pants or a shirt? It would make sense to make them a lower warmth bonus as opposed to a higher weight because you're piecing things together rather than working from a pattern like the findable clothing. It would help in Interloper for sure.
  3. Thanks for the update! Really looking forward to seeing what's coming next in the game in both survival and story mode. (Which reminds me, I still need to finish getting through episode two)
  4. Here we are a month and change later, and I finally finished Episode 1 and I'm in Episode 2. One of my biggest criticisms about the Predux was that it forcibly yanked you out of the story to progress the story, and that's not happening now. I remember wondering why the schoolhouse was even brought up at all, and that's been made into a more cohesive part of the story. I'm sympathetic toward Greymother rather than irritated. The bear is a lot more, yeah, I need to take care of that rather than just wth do I care about some bear chasing some old guy. Methusalah? HERE FOR IT. Really appreciate the work that went into smoothing out the story. I'm not done Episode 2 yet, but I am liking it a whole lot more!
  5. I didn't really see a master post about it and I didn't want to break into the xbox discussion in the news/update forum, so have another topic? Redux! Tis the season and all that, so I don't really have a whole lot of time to play right now. I've just finished chatting with Greymother and I'm about to go hole up and find somewhere to "live" for my duration of time in Milton. So far, I'm REALLY enjoying how the game is playing. It's a lot smoother, a lot more seamless, and while there's danger I don't quite feel like I'm going to have to restart five times just to make it to Milton alive. It also got my husband to play. He's had it since shortly after I got it, but didn't really get into the survival play. But the story now is right up his alley, so yay!
  6. If it works like a traditional bear spear, I'm wondering how effective it'll be on different-sized animals like wolves and moose.

    I'm super excited to see what Hinterland's done with it. Survival can get a bit same old same old sometimes, and it was cool that there were other people and stuff.
  8. Another vote for the Pleasant Valley Farmstead. There's a bear that moves by that you can shoot from the porch. The wolves out in the field are easy to avoid. You're fairly close to a fishing hole if you like fish, deer and bunnies close, and that sweet, sweet six slot stove.
  9. I'd like something like Nomad, but less "spend three days killing time in a safe, indoor space." Something that really takes you around all the zones, but encourages you to not just park yourself there and doing craft projects while waiting out the time.
  10. I bet! Even on the maps I'm really familiar with, when that thick fog comes in...
  11. I moved from somewhere that reliably got snow a few times each winter to somewhere that, like, my son's eight and last year was the first year he saw Real Snow. This isn't the first time I'm all, I miss snow. Guess I'll go play The Long Dark! Plus, I don't have to shovel or drive in it
  12. I'm excited as heck. Like, I've been waiting for another Dragon Age since 2014 and Elder Scrolls since 2011, so pushing this back a bit? NBD. More survival mode stuff in the meantime, though, and a more cohesive story still coming in December? YES PLEASE!!
  13. Cheers! I loved it. I'm currently getting my last two hours of day four. It brought me back to the game and it's definitely made me think seriously about doing some of the other challenges, which I haven't tried at all yet. Also trying a run on a higher difficulty level? Thanks, Hinterland!
