Re: Any way to find lost items? Thank you MrMotorhead, successfully used this after I dropped a pile of furs to hunt down an elk. I was on MacOS so opened a terminal and did 'tail -f msgs.txt" to see my current location as compared to the point where I'd dropped.

Make rafts see-able on main map? On a couple of occasions I've landed a raft on shore, gone to do something  – usually visiting a riverside village  – and forgotten exactly which square of the zoomed out map I left it on. I then have to spend about 5+ minutes searching around until I found it.  It's like if you lost your car in a parking lot at a very large store, but Iron Age edition. To avoid this, I've taken to marking them on the F6 "super-wide-view" map with a marker tagged "parking" but then one has to remove them again when you leave or else that map gets cluttered.

It would be a small playability kindness to players to have raft visible on the zoomed out map, like shelters are. I would say if there is a square with a raft and a shelter, then the shelter would take precedence in being displayed, and be the only object shown. You're less likely to forget if you left your raft at the shelter square.

[not a bug] Unfindable "Cliff" Quest Treasure I've read all the posts on here on reddit on this quest (including one person who screenshotted what a "ravine" looks like, so I have a sense of what I'm looking for). I spent about a month in-game time searching, and the region in question only has about 7-8 hill or mountain tiles that would have cliffs in them, and I cannot find it. I know there was a map maintenance issue that may or may not have removed it sometimes (so that's why I'm posting here under "bugs"). And I guess this quest treasure perhaps an NPC can carry away (so maybe not finding it sometimes is supposed to be part of the game), but just uploading if it's worth investigating. I'm also at this point curious, like "did I miss it in all that time I spent searching" so if someone does find it, feel free to tell me where it is. Savegame:

Re: [not a bug] Unfindable "Cliff" Quest Treasure Thanks Plotinus! My initial reading was "oh this will be a cliff tile", because after all that's what he says, but then other posters made it seem like sometimes it was on a mountain or hill, and I certainly  wasn't expecting there to be a cliff all by itself in the middle of a forest! Sure does blend in. Anyway, curiosity satisfied.

Reinstate leather cord for arrow-making (3.70 beta 3) With the introduction of yarn, only "yarn" is suitable material for making arrows. At least from what I can find quickly, it seems like animal sinew was most frequently used, at least by American Indians. Here's the state archaeologist of Iowa: "Points were attached to the arrow shaft with a variety of methods. Most frequently, the arrow shaft would have a slit cut into the end to accept the point. Sinew would then be wrapped around the shaft to pinch the slit closed".[1] Not that yarn is wrong -- other parts of that Iowa page make clear that plants were sometimes used for bowstrings, and so why not arrows as well -- but rather that it should be possible to make an all-animal-product arrow.

This is relevant for gameplay since I'm doing "The Challenge", and so in that scenario starting in winter with no access to villages there's just no way to make an arrow anymore (wild nettle is all wilted).

Re: Capture dog in the wild? Just found a dog in one of my deadfall bear traps, with a fire and fox bones next to it. Seems like an NPC hunter found a fox in my fox trap that was in the same place; cooked it; while he was doing that his dog got entrapped; and then he took off, leaving his dog in the trap! Nice guy. (I set the dog loose).
