Gameplay questions / How can you get an axe early game?
« on: January 01, 2018, 06:55:47 PM »
I find with most my playthroughs these days if my character doesn't start with an axe I just create a new character. Without a proper axe you can't make boards which are used to push your raft and fish/explore new areas, that's a big part of my early game food supply. Is there any way that I can get an axe early game so I don't have to restart until I start with an axe?

Is there any big repository of custom portraits that could be used. I've tried deviant art but it's mainly cartoons and google images isn't really that good either.

Broadheads do cutting damage that is more likely to cause a bleeding wound and they disable or kill faster. However, there are some disadvantages: a) may damage the hide more, especially with multiple hits; b) Not as good against armored people, because clothing & armor are usually more protective against cutting (edge) attacks than piercing (point) attack types.
I'll have to invest in some of those broad arrows on my current playthrough as too many times have animals been shot by my arrows but just kept running away and then I've lost them.

I had a couple of similar kills with bows (mostly northern bow). The one I consider the luckiest, was one-shot kill of the large stag, who was exactly at the border of visible screen, with maximum zoomout - i.e. the longest distance of shooting. My guy was quite a crappy shooter then, so I was surprised when he instakilled the stag with single try. In this case it was thorax, not eye shot, with a broadhead arrow.

I also had some intakills with humans, and other deer.

Quite often I have instakill of birds with thrown spear, but this is easier to do, since the distance is smaller than with bow.

I also had something which can be considered luckiest in another sense, when I wasn't targeting the subsequent kill. I shot at the stag, and missed, the arrow flew past the screen border. When I went there looking for it, I found it quite further, together with a badly damaged corpse of a goshawk (it was a broadhead, so nothing strange there). This way I learned that the ballistic curve and collision detection is calculated even for off-screen objects. Since then I was using this technique to shoot these nasty robbers from afar.
I haven't used broad arrows at all. Are there any benefits to using them when hunting?

I'm pretty new to the game but earlier today I was on a hunt and I got an extremely lucky one hit kill.

I was on my way to a Driik village with a load of fox traps when out of the blue I stumbled upon some Reindeer, I always have my bow equipped with an arrow ready unless I'm sailing so when the map loaded I fired off a shot at the closest Reindeer. I aimed for the body so it wasn't like I was expecting to hit it at all and there were some trees between us but it hit, and killed it immediately.

What was your luckiest kill?

I remember searching the internet for an indepth survival game, this was probably around 2011-13 when the survival genre got a massive reboot. Most of the games I was finding were pretty under developed and I didn't really like them. I then found this game on a reddit post, someone was looking for a wilderness survival game and this game was recommended.
