Would it not make sense to use the Red Dead Goons discord server for pc also? or has the moderator of that jumped ship?

I asked in the thread a few times and at least one other person did too for the server link but no one ever posted it, so I just assumed it was dead.

Bringing this post to this page so it's not lost:

Well someone else in that discord asked if we could add a PC channel like two minutes before I just posted that, but the previous post before that was September 12 so yeah it's pretty dead.

Alright cool, how about things like... animations for doing any little thing? Do they get faster the more you do them or are you watching Arthur painstakingly skin a deer rear end every single time?

Sometimes if it's a huge animal like a moose or grizzly, or if the carcass is in an odd position terrain-wise, Arthur just crouches down, the carcass snaps to its "skinned" state and he'll stand up holding the rolled-up pelt. But most of the time you have to wait through animations for things. It makes sense for the slower-paced late 19th century feel of the game, and it's consistent with other R* games (like putting up a DJ poster or getting money out of your nightclub safe in GTAO) but it would still be great if they added little QOL things like a "craft all" option so you can make a batch of multiple items with one button press.

The answer is, mate, because I want to do you slowly. There has to be a bit of sport in this for all of us. In the psychological battle stakes, we are stripped down and ready to go. I want to see those ashen-faced performances; I want more of them. I want to be encouraged. I want to see you squirm.

Supposedly animal pelts get insta-skinned if you park your horse on top of the carcass, but I haven't tested it personally since the world apparently revolves around NYC time

That worked in RDR, but I had little luck skipping the animations when playing on Xbox One last year.

The Pelt thing works in online last I checked a few weeks ago (PS4) , but the quality would always degrade with my horse standing on it. I'm probably doing it wrong, though.

they sped them up in online but no they stay the same speed in SP. they’re really not that long though, you’re not gonna be skimming so many deer asses in a row that it’s likely going to be any real imposition. but it is important to realize the game is designed to be played at a very deliberate pace, and attempts to play it faster or idk gamier the way you would fly from waypoint you waypoint in an Ubisoft game are going to result in frustration

just enjoy the game as it comes to you. if skinning poo poo is too tedious nothing stopping you from just eating general store canned goods or candy until Arthur plumps up like a big goon

Alright so I'm definitely going to need to be baked for this game, got it.

If you do collector and follow the map you can just go into scenic mode and let your horse take you wherever. Jump off, find the thing, set next waypoint, roll another J while en route.

use cinematic camera for auto-riding to destinations. it's not as fast and your posse mates might not like it and your might get killed by a bear but it lets you hit the doob

If you want to shoot players, take their hats, and then ride off, this is absolutely the open world online game for you. Red Dead Online is the most rewarding when you role play and make your own fun out of it. The normal gameplay loop in online honestly sucks otherwise.

I like the bounty missions, but you will have to save up gold on the PC version first. I also just really hate that they are on a timer for literally no reason.

drat you Nvidia, I had everything ready for gaming after work, now I have to go home during lunchbreak to install this new driver

Nvidia recommends a 2070S for 1440p@60+FPS high settings (and a 2080Ti for 4K medium-high, lol), I know that nobody can know but humor me with your best guesses: would I be able to max it out with my EVGA 1080 FTW which should be slightly worse than a 2070S but not by much, I think? I'm not super insistent on maxing every single slider but if I can, I'm going for the highest possible preset and maybe toning down a couple high-cost settings like clouds or shadows

Decided to pre-order this a couple of hours before release because why not? The free game and special edition upgrade was enough for me since I was going to buy this eventually anyway.
My only regret is not leaving my computer on, I can't remote desktop in from work and start the preload before getting home. My friend said the game's over 100gb, can anyone confirm?

It is. It's a big (and beautiful) game and it installs both single player and multiplayer components. Took me about two hours or so to download.
