Come to think of it, I pretty much stopped playing when my 50+ day streak broke too. It doesnít help that this game is a gigantic bugfest that runs shitter and shitter as time goes on.

Honestly, during launch week, I got smooth as butter frames and very few bugs. The last time I played I was getting 20 frames tops and we were hitting bizzare bugs every 3 minutes. I donít understand how theyíve managed this.

Do you have a shovel and a metal detector? Some items are buried and need a shovel, some also need a Metal Detector to find the spot where you have to use the Shovel. Said items are marked with a magnet on the Collectors Map.

Sorry, I presumed you already owned the shovel and metal detector. If you click on the items, it will show you if you need a shovel or a metal detector (and shovel) in order to get them. Tarot cards, antique alcohol and bird eggs are always out in the open. Turn in a few full collections of either and you'll have enough for the shovel and metal detector. After that, you'll never want for money again.

cunts are still running the show.


despite doing one daily a day i somehow lost my 27+ streak.

it SEEMS the game must track it as "have you done a daily in 24 hours from your last daily" vs. "have you done a daily since the daily challenges were updated"

e.g. the daily challenges reset at 1am, so if you do a daily at 11pm and then do one at 2am it doesn't count as 2 days

could have just been a bug if that's not the intention though.

The fact that I have a 42 day streak going says a lot about my life, I guess. I even log in just for 10 minutes to whip out a quick challenge just to keep the streak and continue accumulating my 0.5-3 gold per day (which I don't know what to do with, I have like 65 and I already got the couple of cosmetics that I wanted - unless they come up with a bunch more roles, I'm pretty much already set for the next outlaw pass and then some)

Edit: writing this made me realize that I started playing RDO / fulfilling challenges on 1/1/2020, and that kind of compels me to make a 365 day streak. Madness!

All good, I thought I had the shovel but turns out it was the ol "Nuh uhh you just unlocked the ability to BUY IT" dealys... and then I still didn't quite have enough to buy it, shovels were expensive back in the day huh.

Managed to set the map to only show things I can get though and have been making progress.

Get up, chief. We're just gettin' started.



i havenít played factorio, but apparently itís like that, but in first person.

itís early access and lacks an overall narrative or progression past unlocking the 7 tech tiers (which themselves have several sub-tiers to unlock), but the building mechanics are pretty polished and good compared to other games with similar features.

this sort of thing is extremely my jam and the music is mostly space ambient synth stuff so itís chill af and just feels good.

currently on epic for 30bux, but steam ďsoonĒ

the third major update just hit the experimental branch of the game which changes a lot of the early tech progression and should be released for reals in a couple weeks i hear

No it was in Mexico across the river from new Austin. There was no features or people. Just the low res stuff to make it look good from far away.

It probably doesn't have a chance in hell of happening but it'd be amazing if they did a RDR Redux as an "expansion" for this. They have like 90% of the game area in already, they could pull the voicework from the old game, and most of the main character models are in too. They could probably get away with charging $40-$60 for it and I'd gladly pay it

The fact that they sent the lawyers to kill that RDR1 graphics mod for the emulated version of the game before it even got started makes me hope they have a RDR1 remaster on the cards.

The only thing is I'd want them to add a few more voice lines in that talk about Arthur and some references to RDR2.

Mexico is not only in RDR2O (in lovely empty low-res form) it was actually accessible on foot for a while and they had to patch it out.

Also, RE: RDR1 remaster, Jack's dialogue lines are all in the game's files for some reason. There's a glitch you can trigger that swaps out voice scripts on yourself and NPCs and sometime you can trigger a bunch of Jack Marston stuff

I thought that Jack Marston stuff was proven to just be an npc that sounds like him.

Also these was a patch that was supposed to have done something about animal spawns. Rode my horse across the map and didnít see a single animal. Great job.

Here's what some random website says :

quote:

[UPDATE - 12.25pm GMT] - According to the official patch notes showing on PS4, the new update released today is said to offer the following changes.

"Version 1.17 - Update 01.17 - General stability fixes and improvements"

Which seems somewhat at odds with the games sizable 3.8GB update.

Although based on reports, it doesn't sound as though the low animal counts have been fixed.

As noted by Red Dead Online Player, @ALifeOfMisery_, nothing seems to have changed:

"After downloading 1.17 I restarted my PS4 & cleared cache when starting RDR2.I'm currently in Great Plains, 23 player lobby, not so much as a bird in the sky and my camp is missing.Seems like a good use of 3.87gb."

This was then followed by, this:

"After a further full console shut down and a clearing cache, nothing has changed for me. 24 player lobby, I have ridden around Great Plains, Tall Trees & Hennigan's Stead, I've seen a couple of wild horses and maybe a handful of Ravens. That's it. Also can't get camp to pitch."

What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.

I liked how in Red Dead 1, there was the one giant buffalo herd, and their pelts were worth a ton (i think, anyway) but once you killed them they were gone forever. I think there was even an achievement for it.

Oh man I didn't know this, that's sad. I think I thought many didnt spawn randomly.

I am fairly new to online, do these stranger missions, like the ones for Bonnie at Hennigan's Stead, run out, or do they eventually repeat?

Is there a story thing for Van Horn I've missed about that town being aggressive?

I'm nearing the end of chapter 3. I've been through Van Horn before, and did the stranger mission that started there, but otherwise hadn't done more than ridden through, as there hasn't been any real story stuff up that way yet. Was just riding through to get to the stable when I saw the two men in a duel. Stopped and accepted the winner's challenge. Dueled him and won. Looted his body and that of the guy he'd dueled first. Hopped on my horse and suddenly I'm being attacked from all sides. At first I thought I had been unlocky and there were some lawmen passing by that maybe took issue with me looting the bodies, or maybe I hadn't been supposed to kill the man I'd dueled or something, but then I realized it was waaay too many people attacking me for it to have been the law, and it was just... everyone in town attacking me instead. Finally finished off everyone attacking me and went about looting the bodies. Some gave me a karma ding, some didn't. I never became wanted or anything, despite having to fend off most of the town. It was weird! On my way back down south after visiting the stable I checked at the post office to see if I'd accrued a bounty (nope!) and when I greeted a guy standing around outside he just said "I thought we'd made it clear you aren't welcome here" or something similar. But I've spent hardly any time there, so I can't even figure out what I did to be unwelcome (pre-defending myself against the entire town, I mean; if he was grumpy about me killing most of the town that's understandable, but also they attacked me first!).

Did I somehow stumble into a story thing I didn't realize was a story thing? Was it connected to the dueling guy encounter? Was it just some bizarre coincidence of the town attacking being a separate encounter that just happened to piggy back the dueling guy encounter? Is Van Horn just a batshit hellscape of a town that attacks passersby for funsies?
