« on: May 31, 2017, 06:46:56 AM »
Mors Kochanski has spent 40+ years in Boreal forests. Canada mostly as far as I know. As well as writing books on how to skills for survival and bushcraft he setup a youtube channel with lots of information.


Bug reports / Rafting, ice and shallow water
« on: May 28, 2017, 09:11:06 AM »
game version 3.4
Was rafting in the early winter, aka slush, season. Crossing a river. The opposite bank had thin ice and shallow water. Moving forward paddling the raft it dumped me into the water. I believe it attempted to consider me as being on land standing with the raft rather than floating on the raft. The resulting situation was the ice broke dumping me into cold waste deep water in the same tile as the raft. I moved off the tile then back to the raft and could paddle back to my camp for a survival fire.

Not bugs / [not a bug] menudef odd behaviour on a Tablet
« on: May 28, 2017, 07:31:39 AM »
I recently got a Win 10 Tablet. Installed steam. Installed Unreal via steam as a local file (not streaming)

Using Boudia's mod which has a menudef_Boudia and menudef_Raincloth. So 2 menudef files.

Also using my mode with a menudef. Minor change from the usual A for added to G to not overlap with Boudia using A for barkware.

So here's the thing. As far as I can tell if I have my menudef as a 3rd file it won't load. If I copy my code lines into Boudia's as an extra line then the entry loads. I can delete my menudef file. That leaves menudef_merged (was Boudia) and menudef_Raincloth

As far as I can tell the game only loads two additional menudef files.

Not sure if this is an error in my file naming, the game or wierd tablet magic.

Privateer setup a mega menu mod. Does that work loading many menu_def files?

General Discussion / Link to the old forums and old mods

So got a new tablet recently. Installed Unreal world. Went to download the mods other than my own Im using. Errrr.....

Those are on the old forums.

Highly recommend a sticky to the old forums including a second link to the mod section of the old forums.

Suggestions / Absorbing Iron Working
« on: May 22, 2017, 08:22:04 PM »
So a suggestion with pros/cons is to make some form of ironworking official in the main game.

A con against this is different people have different views on how to make it.

The modders already have made some so Saami's time might focus on new, rather than existing modded, game improvements.

Suggestions / Material Coal
« on: May 22, 2017, 08:20:19 PM »
Alot of the mods now have coal as a standard item. Perhaps it is time to make it a standard in game item?

Suggestions / Material Ash

Dear Saami,

How about instead of having fires burn out to leave 'ash' as something that can be picked up. Perhaps with some ratio to the amount of wood burned. Ash as in the remains from a burned fire.

Not sure what the ratio of burned stuff to ash should be. (possible research assist )

This could lead to change in how agriculture fertilizing is done. Rather than needing to make a fire at every tile you could bring over the ash.

Ash as resource now becomes something modders can use in other construction

It also means you might have a role-play chore of cleaning out your cabin's fireplace.

There is some risk of data bloating though as every fire you make travelling leaves ash. I've not yet thought of a suitable logic process for removing excess ash. You would want to make it possible to store ash so that farmers could make a winter stockpile for putting on the fields in the summer or that crafter's could store for use.

One different approach would be to harvest a burned out fire to give you some ash. Tile then shows a 'harvested' burned out fire. However, if you relight a fire on the same place how would you record more ash being there?

Off-topic / What do you like to cook in real life?
« on: April 30, 2017, 03:49:16 AM »
A common point in humanity is that we all like to eat. Since I like to eat I like to cook.  :D This a simple logic.

Wondering what other folks like to cook?

One of mine is honey fried steak.
Yep, you heard that right. Steak fried in honey.
I learned if you learn to 'listen to the oil' you can gently fry with honey. Use a low to low-medium heat and don't let the bubbling 'sound angry'. There is a trick also that the juices from the meat stop the honey from burning. So when the honey starts to turn darken then the meat has given all the juices it can making it time to stop. The steak will be pink on the inside (medium) glazed in sweet honey goodness. Super bonus that any spices you toss in will stick to the honey which sticks to the meat!

Currently I serve it out on a pita bread with optional lettuce/vegetables arranged in an outer ring. The roughage helps the body digest the meat. Well, it is like one steak per person. I tend to use cheaper more-fatty cuts since they will come out okay in the longer cooking time.

I like to pour the pan's honey-greasy goodness onto the bread too. Don't let any nutrition go to waste!

General Discussion / Igloos and arctic survival
« on: April 29, 2017, 02:21:45 AM »
While not something we would likely see in Finland's Iron Age they are still interesting bits of survival lore.

Here is a Canada National Film Board from decades ago on 2 Eskimo making an igloo for a night.

And Ray Mears suvival show on the arctic, apparently a whole series of shows I never knew about:
