[Not a bug] I could not find my raft and thought it had despawned Greetings, fellow tribesmen!

So I made a raft after a longish adventure to get the necessary ropes, paddled it to the other side of the rapids, and landed. I think I loaded about 3-5 tree trunks (big and slender), some stones, and a sesta on it, maybe a few more items too, but not very much. After going away a few zoomed-in tiles to gather stones, and then returning, the raft disappeared with all its load.
I did not zoom out during the stone and trunk gathering trip, but there was a loading screen, so I guess I went to another zoomed-out tile in the process. After not finding the raft, I zoomed out and walked around a little (1-2 zoomed-out tiles), and the raft did not show up on the zoomed-out map. Zoomed in again, the raft was still not on the shore. That and the raft not showing up on the zoomed-out map makes me think it despawned, not teleported.
I am pretty new to this game, this is the character I made the most progress with, so I would really like to get back my raft and its load, or at the very least the 3 ropes it required.

I see that Sami tends to inspect the related save files, so I am sending a link to them. If Sami (or maybe someone else) manages to recover my raft, as soon as I git gud at the game I will help the cause of this game by uploading a proper let's play (probably a series, where I would show in-depth hunting, combat, etc. and attempt to pronounce the Finnish words properly, as my native language is considered Finno-Ugric too) to Youtube, as most of the let's plays I have seen are either outdated, inaccurate, surface-scraping, made by very new players who do not know what they are doing, or just bad quality (for example, one let's player said "all the names are in Swedish Nordic").

The message log entry mentioning my last raft landing is the following: (3C5A98):87ge:[:]{082304B0}      | You go on shore.
The link to the picture outlining my most probable landing location (I don't remember exacly, but I do remember approximately):!mfA0Ba7J!azuowXMWursY1gJu4w7fZ14rHZoQ8YBniXKDZRyZvaw
Thanks in advance!

Re: [3.52 stable Windows] Raft disappeared with all its load
Greetings, and welcome aboard!

You've got a good report here, with the saves and essential information neatly available.
Luckily, there was no bug in question - you've been just searching the raft from wrong location. It's lies nearby in the north.
So, just stay on zoomed-in level, and walk the shoreline to north. You will find your raft there quite soon.

Feel free to make that Let's Play video anyway ;)

Thank you for your help!
How did you find the raft? Through its hex or did you just walk around? If I knew how tiles are identified, then maybe I could have found the raft without bothering you.
Anyway, I hope I won't make such dumb mistakes anymore, and the let's play should be underway in two months at most, hopefully much less.

Axes and hatchets Greetings, tribesmen!

I've just bought a small carving hatchet in real life from a local blacksmith. My other axe is a Fiskars X10.
Fiskars axes are not really liked in my country as hard-core axe users don't trust the hollow plastic handle. However, I like my X10 a lot.
I thought this forum would be a good place to ask regular Fiskars (and derivatives, such as Gerber) axe/hatchet users, especially those who have used other axes too: what are YOUR experiences with them? Have you ever seen that dreaded handle break? What do you use them for?

Re: Why I carry a rock in real life I used to carry rocks for self-defense as a kid and started bushcraft with knapping rocks. I would like to see how you start a fire with 2 rocks though.

Re: Ancient Savo : A new Enormous Elk game in the making Sounds like fun! Isn't the Kaumo in UrW based on Savo?

My dude's fellow tribesmen stole ALL THE SMOKED FOOD Is this normal, or some borderline bug? I came to pick my smoked meat (about 40-50 cuts of elk) less than 2 days after it was supposed to be done.
Anyway, looks like I will have to warm up on them before I go for the Njerpezit, will killing them worsen the reputation of a nearby village? Or will it make the spiritworld angry?

Oh, it seems like stories here go deeper, not just two lines of roleplaying some game event.
Anyway, my character was born to an abusive, drunkard "gold digger", wandering around the Kaumo to get laid for ale, mead, psychedelic mushrooms, a place to stay in, and scraps of meat. He would be used to do menial tasks, and would always get into fights because all the others knew his mom would not stand up for him. One time when he asked his mom and her partner why they hate him so much, he would be knocked out and then thrown into the village's pig pen as fodder. However, he only pretended to be unconscious, so he fought the pigs off and even ate part of one. So he and his mom would be forced out of the village, but she knew a campsite to stay at. They both went to sleep. In the morning, there was not the usual yelling-with-cold-water wake-up call from his mother. He looked around, no trace of her, only her trousers, her knife, the food, the spearhead and the carving axe she had stolen. He had no name, but the moment he realized he's all alone: "I'm Rautasoturi" his thoughts whispered.

After assessing the situation, he went straight after his instincts: he tried to eat anything he could find, looking for some animals to hunt, as this was the only thing he knew. He has hunted several elks just by chasing them until they tired out. However, that meat would eventually rot on him, so he attempted look for a village to smoke the meat he couldn't trade. He had stolen meat to be smoked himself too, but he didn't think all of his meat would get stolen. But those damned villagers stole them all, and left the cordage with a noose tied on it: has he been in this village before as a kid?

This experience made him decide to build his own smokehouse, even if that means no hunting for a while. He had lots of rotten meat after all, and he found out that boiled meadsweet helps to keep some of it down. This is done now, it's time to prepare for the winter by stockpiling food and projectiles for active hunting, trading with a (suspiciously) friendly village and fighting. Maybe Rautasoturi will cross paths with some of his former abusers and can avenge everything!

Roe skull rite in Real World? My first thought was "ah, that's why there are so many roes running around" then I realized it's not a bear skull and it's not UnReal World.
Looks like someone from the nearby squat village felt a little dark kvlty. Or just wanted to keep the pedestrians away. Though I think the huge amount of litter around that path is better for that purpose...

Re: 'Asentokuusi' - simple shelter under a leaning spruce tree

As a contemporary urban person, I either take a rainproof shell with me, or I think twice about which doorway to use as shelter.
Even if it's not occupied by someone else, when the door within an arm's reach to me (since I'm in the doorway) opens, I have not enough time to react to whomever or whatever (dogs WILL "protect" "their" doorway from me) comes out. Even people will most likely inquire me about what business I have in their doorway, and a polite inquiry in these parts often starts with a death threat, or at least a juicy insult, regardless of weather.
So an "urban asentokuusi" like that involves knowledge of the area, knowledge of the doorway/building (I might be able to even enter the staircase of a large tenement, no one will ask me wtf I'm doing there - but these places house a lot of people, so some of them are going to be troublesome, also these staircases tend to be really tight, so no reaction time against an attack), knowing how to talk oneself out of these "polite inquiries" and self-defense when things get hot. Usually getting a little wet is preferable to all this stuff, so knowing how to guess whether I'm going to get soaked out in the open or just a little wet is important too.

I take it you're from Cardiff?   ;D

Can see why you prefer the peace and quiet of a Finnish forest.

Budapest bruv...

Re: 'Asentokuusi' - simple shelter under a leaning spruce tree
Apologies, your handle put me in mind of a Welsh person!

Dynggyldai is actually in Tuvan, it means something like "good-for-nothing". I can pronounce Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch though, so close enough. Still easier than Hungarian :D
