  1. I would be fun to try. I will give it a go on one of my testing runs.
  2. When I'm hit with the risk of cabin fever, for me it's usually a good time to go fishing in a fishing hut. But this time, since I was getting close to the fire-starter badge, I figured I would create a fire-starting production line shielded from the prevailing winds... Using torches from some previous fires and some spare sticks, I was able to chain roughly 80 fires in fairly short order to receive the badge just as my torch was running out... Maybe am I feeling the ill effects of cabin fever to pull a tedious stunt like this but it was nice to finally get the badge
  3. You must have your revolver skill high enough for that. I'm still at level 3. Is it at level 4 or 5 that you can use it to take a shot at the wolf?
  4. Nice saves. I never had the chance to make it to TWM during my earlier saves. I went away from the game for a while and upon my return, I decided to play the Nomad challenge. TWM was my last location and when I completed the third day, the challenge ends I was so disappointed since I was really starting to like it. I'm 165 days into a save and most of it has been in TWM. Mountaineer's Hut is awesome. Plain and simple. That's exactly how I like it.
  5. Had two sprains back to back (like within 30 secs of each other) while climbing to Signal Hill in PV. Apart from that, only one other sprain while playing about 70 days worth on survival mode. Mainly playing Timberwolf Mountain which is quite hilly but manageable.
  6. Ok, I think I was definitely waiting too long before I committed to pulling the trigger. Was just playing and shot I bit earlier like before the wolf started his charge. Out of 3 encounters, all shots were a hit, the last one being a crit. Starting to feel a bit more comfortable with it. Thank you, everyone, for the kind wisdom. Happy trails!
  7. Fair point. I tried using it during a struggle with a wolf and the revolver turns around in your hand and is used as a club. Definitely not a melee weapon, lol. I'll stick with my trusty knife.
  8. I was intending to hunt the wolf, in most cases, it's when I happen to cross their paths like when you crest over a hill and boom, the bugger is on you. I have managed to a deer with it though. Simply get in the path of it, crouched and waited for him to close the distance. Not sure how long it took to bleed out since I have no idea where it was hit but sometime later, I noticed my deer kills had incremented by one. Still trying to find the carcass so I can harvest the meat and hide.
  9. Yeah, the container was ruined when the hacksaw broke. I guess that's how you learn in this game... by your own miserable mistakes
  10. Now that I have a revolver, I tried to use it on a wolf as it makes its stalking approach. Regrettably, I'm not having much success. Is the critical hit chance for a revolver a lot lower than a rifle? When I do resort to using the rifle, it's a kill shot nearly 100% of the time (rifle skill 3 or less). I've tried at least 5 times with a revolver (skill level is 3) and all of them were misses. Is anyone else having any luck? Thanks in advance for any tips or advice.
  11. Another great tidbit! In one of my playthroughs, I'm exploring the crates in Timberwolf Mountain and I had a hacksaw that was 23%. I figured I was good enough to inspect the 4 containers at the wing. Well, the hacksaw broke after opening only the first container. So I assume it was 18% at that point. I only have one hacksaw left at 73%. I guess I'll go back to PV and pick up that simple toolbox I left behind so I can repair the hacksaw as I go. Good to know there's a threshold. Thanks again ajb!
  12. Power for a radio perhaps?
  13. That greedy bugger
  14. I found a revolver along with 12 cartridges in the fishing hut on Pensive Pond in Pleasant Valley.
  15. Decided to go back into PV and found a revolver along with 12 cartridges in a fishing hut on Pensive Pond. Let the games begin!
