It isn't too difficult to mod your own spears, bows & arrows if you would like to make them the way you want them. But this would only affect the ones you use unless you gave them to companions or dropped them for your enemies to pick up.

I'm of the opinion that it's a toss-up because the much higher velocity of an arrow gives it deeper penetration (generally speaking, not always). Kinetic energy increases with the square of velocity, so when the velocity gets high it will overtake the mass and give greater overall energy. No, I'm not going to get into any calculations to prove anything because I don't have a problem with this in the game. Just food for thought.

Congratulations Sami and Erkka on this well-deserved recognition!

Sounds like some folks don't want companions, they want slaves  ;)
I like them having some "free will".

Try deconstructing the door on your cabin, and when your companion is inside, construct a wall in the door's place. You might get lucky and trap him.

For multiplayer, game should be changed. Time should go on when we stand and not doing anything. When we stand on a hill in wilderness, we should see animal or NPC is moving even if we don't move.
If you keep pressing keypad-5 (or period) the game behaves how you want it to.
If time passed without any key presses it wouldn't be a turn-based roguelike anymore.

General Discussion / Re: Take it or leave it - Forest Reindeer Meat

Since I tend to play wanderers, I just kill one large animal and skin & butcher it. While the hide is tanning I try to take roasted meat to a nearby village for trading if there is one. Then I'm on my merry way again with one more fur, hoping to find foreign traders after I've got a few.

Yes, the skills of my character tend to determine what type of life they live. I rarely try trapping large game unless it's a settled-down character.

I guess if I was in the situation you mention with several deer killed, I would try to process them all if I had a smoke house or could dry the meat. If not, then I would only partially butcher some of the carcasses and use them as bait in deadfall traps. This can help trap wolves, which are my bane.

I like the new spell system better than the old one, including the rarity of spells discussed in this thread.

If every 16-year old character learned the number of spells as in the old system, then every 16-year old character would know more spells than the shamans do, at least that's how I see it.

A bit of "realism" has been added with the new system and it's cool.

Cheers to Sami.  8)

In the dead of winter, fires, torches, and shelter will be some of your best friends!
You may decide simply not to venture out at night so you don't stumble into a pack of wolves ;)

Gameplay questions / Re: Which skill affects trap creation quality?
« on: September 17, 2018, 03:01:34 AM »
Fox quality quality creation is affected by trap skill.
But loop snare by crafting.

I have high trapping skill and low carpentry. So I make fine Fox traps and decent Loop snares.

using perfect boards works better then using poor boards, hence, it take smore then just trapping skill
Of course, better input -> better output.  My reply was aimed at helping the questioner be able to answer other questions for him/herself by pointing out that game-files contain answers. As your reply was also helpful.

Not bugs / Re: Game crashes extremely frequently
« on: September 17, 2018, 02:51:58 AM »
I've never had the game crash in many years. It could be anti-virus or other software running in background, or possibly a graphics card issue?

Is the game the only software that crashes on your computer?

Have you tried changing game settings in-game?

How about editing urw_ini.txt and changing more of the options?

Hey man im a bit lost, charcoal isn't popping up on any of the skills. help please
I'm not using this mod, but I use other mods so my suggestion may not be good.
Are you looking in the stock game skills, or looking in the Make menu "shift-+" (or "shift-M") ?

The answer is in the diy_glossary file, it lists the fox trap & loop snare recipes.
These recipes show which skill is used to create those traps.

Nicely done!

There could be a quest... "My husband has not returned from hunting for 7 days, last I heard he was heading in the direction of Wolf Falls in the north-east..."  When you find the hunter, he is already dead.  Not dissimilar to the "Wounded Adventurer" quest.

I've thought for a while that it would be cool to occasionally find abandoned camps/settlements.  Some of the starting scenarios allow you to do this but it would also be neat for it to originate organically during play.
And you would get a reward for bringing back the body for her. This would be a good quest to introduce along with a new item, either a travois drawn by an animal or a smaller one or sled (in snow) pulled by the character.

Do you think we might see something in the story section from you, Jakob?
