General Discussion / Send a Saved game
« on: September 18, 2019, 08:34:03 PM »
Allow me to display my ignorance. I don't know how to send in a saved game! I once found a post explaining how-to in the OLD Thoth's URW site but apparently that site is deceased now. And don't laugh. I was born before people could buy televisions, much less It's not my generation's area of expertise.

Any help will be appreciated!

 10' lengths made from joined 5' lengths do not stack with 10' lengths cut from longer ropes. Winds up with two stacks of 10' lengths, using up an additional inventory slot.

Not bugs / [not a bug] Fireplace fire lasts too long.
« on: September 18, 2019, 08:32:56 AM »
In my cabin, I gave a Companion two cuts of raw grouse and then told him to cook it. He fired up my fireplace and cooked it right away. However, the fire has been going all evening now! So, either it's a bug or he's shoving enormous amounts of fuel into his fires. I make my fires with 18 branches and the fire I'm used to would be out by now.

Gameplay questions / Bug? or wrong season? and Barks...
« on: September 17, 2019, 11:30:36 AM »
I'm at the '6th day of the 4th week before midsummer point'. Twice I've burned ground to plant and both times, even though I've checked several times a day, the burned ground dissipates and I can't plant anything. Am I in the wrong season for this? I'm using the free seeds from the quest, if I ever solve this problem.

I've peeled some bark from birch and alder trees, under the new Beta, and now I have the new programmed strips AND the old 'barks' in my inventory. Not sure if there was supposed to be a metamorphosis of the old 'barks'...?

Lastly, I started a new character and found a village. Going there to trade, the first woodsman I spoke to offered me the 'cut branches' task. I also tried to trade with him but he offered me only ONE item from those I'd seen on him. After I cut the branches and returned to him for the 5 squirrel fur credit, I asked again to trade and LO! now he was offering me many items! I got the handaxe and other things I'd wanted from him but he had not offered before. That's the first time I've seen the large difference between being a total stranger and having become more accepted in a village.

Gameplay questions / Domestic Animal Tasking
« on: September 13, 2019, 02:18:16 AM »
My character has arrived at the 'A Domestic Animal' challenge but I already have a sow from choosing the 'Not all who wander' starting role. Is it necessary that I acquire another animal to fulfill it? I'm in Kaumo lands and of the 17 villages I've found here, none has a single animal. 

Gameplay questions / Utility of 'quality' in items
« on: August 10, 2019, 07:44:14 PM »
It has been on my mind for a while now- does the quality of cords affect the quality/results of traps/snares or the quality of dried/smoked meats?

I suspect that cord quality only matters for making arrows, that trap quality depends solely upon trapping skill, and that dry/smoked meat quality depends solely upon cooking skill.

 I've made inferior snares and decent snares but nothing of better quality than those. I've noticed no difference in the ability of inferior snares to catch their prey. Although I've occasionally found a trap with only a bunch of feathers in it, that could possibly be the result of predator animals, rather than escapes. Otoh, I'm certain that the various predator birds have attacked trapped prey because I've found mutilated corpses in traps.

Gameplay questions / Leather Boots can't be crafted?
« on: August 10, 2019, 12:23:18 PM »
My list of craftable items includes leather shoes but no leather boots. Yet I wear a pair of boots I've had from the start. Curiously, I don't see any being offered for trade since I noticed I can't craft them.

Are shoes/boots an interchangeable term? Were we ever able to craft boots?

Bug reports / Beast loading Exploit
« on: June 28, 2019, 07:50:14 AM »
I thought I'd reported something like this before but cannot find it.

IF your bull, for instance, is almost fully loaded, with only one or two open spaces, if you try to load multiple items at the same time, above the acceptable load count, items will be duplicated, whether it be food, armor, whatever.

Bug reports / Bug/Exploit?
« on: June 28, 2019, 07:40:38 AM »
When crafting cords, if you start with a .03 weight Fine bird leather and add several pounds of lesser quality material of any acceptable type it seems that the Fine starting piece can define the quality often. Maybe I just got lucky but I've seen this several times, wherein I get 5 Fine cords from primarily lesser quality material.

Gameplay questions / How long in game?
« on: June 18, 2019, 12:56:46 PM »
Is there a way to determine how long a character has been in the game?

Gameplay questions / Craft question
« on: June 14, 2019, 09:23:34 AM »
When I craft a Fine Pawboard trap and it tells I could have done better but for the quality of my materials (roughly speaking), is it REALLY saying my skills can craft better than Fine, if only I use better boards? I'd test it myself but I don't have any Perfect boards...heh.

Gameplay questions / What craft skill is it?
« on: May 05, 2019, 07:24:28 AM »
When I make a leather item, like a belt, what craft skill am I using? Hideworking? 

Is carving wood items (bowls) considered carpentry? How about stone weapons? Javelins? Torches?

Gameplay questions / Re: Updates
« on: April 25, 2019, 07:11:03 PM »
In the Development thread Sami posts that there are improvements made to dogs, snakes, etc. There is no new patch, so, are they being automatically updated on Steam? I have the game on Steam but I started a guy on the Free version first and am still playing that one.

Gameplay questions / Another thing that puzzles me...
« on: April 23, 2019, 03:41:42 AM »
Why is it that, when I'm on the strategic map and am told that I've spotted some type of tracks, then when I go to the tactical map there are no tracks? Logically, one would expect to be taken to the tracks that captured my attention.

General Discussion / I swear by shutters!
« on: March 31, 2019, 04:35:38 AM »
For the first time ever, I was attacked by robbers at my cabin! Fortunately, on a whim I had built every wall with shutters, so, I actually saw these coming on the other side of my fence (I had built no traps!).

I rushed to my weapon stash (I was inside my cabin) and grabbed a lot of Fine Broadheads and ran back to the shutter. I managed to put 3 of them on the ground, though they were not dead yet. Then, I heard a door opening behind me! lol... I fired two more arrows and had to switch to my spear. My previous arrow work had badly injured the two inside and I finished them with my spear. Then I went outside and killed another lying on the ground. Circling the cabin, I found the last one and got a kill with a thrown javelin. I assume that there were only 4 because that's all I found.

What a great adventure! I have to ask, though, would my cabin have been robbed if I had not been home then?
