Re: Keeping the game fresh
I always try to play a likeness of myself, and then basically roleplay as myself.  Basically, would you do something in the game that you wouldn't do in real life?

Basically...

- Are you really a god of combat, stealth, and a master hide-worker?  Specifically?
- Would you deliberately hunt down and kill somebody to take their stuff?
- For that matter, would you really seek out warriors from another culture to fight?
- Would you really gather a whole bunch of people from different villages, arm them with weapons and armor, and go destroy other camps?
- Would you really subsist on a mono-diet knowing how bad for you health that is in real life?  Like mono-dried meat or mono fish, or mono milk?
- For that matter, what kind of allergies do you have in the real world?
- Would you really feed your dogs spoilt meat?  Or try and sell that to others (not sure if you can still do this or not.)
- Would you really build a cabin, by yourself?  Would you really cut down 300 tree's, put them all on a raft secured only with small pieces of cloth you cut from your underwear, and paddle upstream, to a building site so close to the river that it could potentially be flooded?
- Would you really build a trap-fence 10 km long?
- Would you really work your character so hard that they are constantly on the verge of fainting?
- Use the "Oath of Iron" ritual on throwaway weapons?
- Ect, ect.  You get the point.

Basically there's a ton of things you end up doing in the game because they are incredibly favorable or they take out some of the tedium, but they totally wreck the intended balance of the game.  Now, of course, being to strict with those ideas can also lead to a boring or frustrating game, so you should have some leeway if you choose to re-imagine yourself.  Perhaps you from 1,000 years ago would be very talented in something.  You would have to be, or you wouldn't last very long.
Very well said  :)

Re: Quality of Life (for the Player) Improvements 1.  Changing this would IMHO be much too unrealistic.

2.  I like this suggestion.

3.  You can already do this by canceling the eating before finished. I call it "tasting" the food.

Re: White screen? anyone? Works fine for me on XP and always has.  :)
No problem installing it either.  :)
What's so special about Win.10 anyway?  :P

Re: using "reputation" as currency The barter system is one of the great things about this game that helps make it unique.
Why replace it with an abstract numbers-based system like other games have?

There is no currency because in Iron Age Finland there was no currency.
Reputation is already a major influence on bartering.
Guessing and figuring out what to trade is part of the fun!  ;D

Re: Confirmation before eating unknown items! Sometimes unknown mushrooms are just too tempting to pass up  ;)



(Turn off the confirmation for climbing in urw.ini if that's what you would prefer.)

Re: Confirmation before eating unknown items! Yes, and let's have the option to turn the confirmation ON or OFF in urw.ini

Smoke From Fires Visible From Distance Could we have smoke on the wilderness map from fires that lasts for the duration of the fire, plus a bit longer after it burns out?

Perhaps smoke could attract other humans just like it would in R/L.

Re: Birch bark for crafting I think there are many excellent things that have been added with mods. Of course it would be great if many of them were added to vanilla. I agree. But keeping in mind this game is a labor of love developed by one man (with help from his friends), he has decided there are many other larger improvements that keep the game growing rather than incorporate mod ideas that can continue to be used as mods easily enough. I completely agree with that course of action. There is only so much time in a person's life!

Give modding a try, it's not that bad  :)

Horseback archery... a fleeting dream of mine that has not come true.
It is very cool to see you are doing this!
