Suggestions / Re: Re-triggering command for loop snares and paw-boards too
« on: November 22, 2020, 04:59:00 PM »
I’m confused, do you mean resetting a triggered loop snare in vicinity?
And if so: yes please. Also enable the resetting for paw-board traps.

The great preposition fix.

Just how long did it take to go through ALL of the BAC recipes?  :o

When bigger fish splash, it’s often to catch/attempt to catch prey close to surface. Small fish, frogs, pupa/larvae/adult insects etc.

Seeing splash rings on the water would definitely improve immersion a lot. And even when not seeing the splash, our characters’ should hear the splashes.

Spawning pike clubbing is pretty easy and reasonably productive, vs angling for pike. You’ll likely get breams, perch, roaches or burbot (burbot only if shallow enough, or long line during cold water/frozen. They go to bottom/deep) when angling. Salmon and trout do enjoy worms and maggots a lot too.

When baiting becomes reality, I hope to see cutting scraps into 1/2oz pieces. (Or  ~15g)
If worm digging is included, I hope maggots, fly larvae, is included on corpses. Also animal remains (from skinning and butchering) and fish gutting scraps. And maggots on them.

waiting to start a Njerpez fueled maggot industry to trade for local villages... muahahahahh

We can assume the Iron Age folks would’ve been smart enough to take angling and light lever trap and automate the catch process, when working nearby felling trees, preparing farming land et cetera.
So can we please get to make angling lever traps?

We should also be able to tie a stone to a young spruce with cord/rope and sink it in shallow (about 2m depth for a 1.8m tree) as a fish egg laying spot. Once those eggs hatch they’ll attract larger predatory fishes, and angling or placing katiska near would always be better than a area without.
Those trees only last under water for a winter or two at most.

We would keep our Xmas tree and take it to the bay by the cabin and sink one every year after ice cleared.

Fish fence should be doable with branches. But should get removed/destroyed by ice. And should clear on rapids too, as ice upstream will remove things pretty efficiently.
Salmon dam would require stakes, if not slender trunks to make.

I made a Suggestion while ago for crayfish that had some ideas for fish traps too.

Loop snares as well as lever traps do catch hares unbaited. Simply set the trap(s) on the animals path. And here a shrub, low fence, house/barn wall can be used to guide the animals into the traps. Even row of logs or trunks* should be usable as small-game fence. Yes, they can fly/jump/scurry/climb over around or even make U-turn; but small game, especially prey ones, like cover. And predators, well, like to check the cover spots.

*I wish the trunks/logs would be longer than 2m; than what we get from fallen trees...

No problem at all. I used to go fishing to Lappi every summer for years. Don’t recall seeing grown willows past Kuusamo ever. Sevetti and Kaldoaivi might be my favorite areas. Except during räkkä... I rather go north end of August-early September and endure occasional night frost instead.

It can be tiring and doubt infusing at times. But do your best to enjoy the time.
And if you have family close-by, let them help. (Mother might have baby blues and also be hyper protective for sometime. Try your best to do the little things, she’s likely extremely tired for a while.

Got 4 kids; 20, 15, almost 6 and almost 3. 2nd family. They’re all different.
No advise “kids this, kids that” from me. Some sleep, some don’t. Some eat well, others might have reflux. There’s nothing except your (parents) instinct to tell what’s best for your kid(s). Or simply trial and error.

Good luck! And let mom take a nap!

Stakes not so much but sizable piece of firewood could be carved into seita. More common would be to carve a tall stump instead.

Gameplay questions / Re: Bird thief quest; thief won't turn himself in?

Feathers thrown or pushed, on fire remains: sauna stove or base rock. Should do the trick.
But if the feathers are NOT the quest specific ones, it’ll naturally fail to work as scripted.

Can someone remember trapping a big wolf with a deadfall trap? Pits don't count.
I found a dead big wolf in a big deadfall trap I had originally built to catch a lynx. The fox/arctic fox* cut bait was gone.

*fox cuts are useless for anything else really IMO

... as for dark ages Finnish blasphemers... do absolutely nothing... spirits would correct their ways, there’d be no reason for folks to intervene.
If you’ve done “bird thief quest” you’ll know the attitude going against someone else: they might even put a spell on you. Better to keep to yourself.

Elk stamina should be multiplied by factor of 10-20. Endurance hunting elk should be a few days walk without rest. Not the current: send dog after an elk and then catch up 400m later to a breathless elk. Also, creatures as NPCs should get fatigued more in snow (apart from certain creatures running on the snow)

Erkka and others responded to another suggestion (springs, creeks, road rework) which included mention of game behavior, get in the water, swim or ford; so I full heartedly agree here.

@paulkorotoon , and as always before deleting files. Make a backup. Move / copy to another folder. Or rename by adding something like .old after the real file extension (if any)
