I love logging in and wondering if my server will have animals, Cripps, or neither.

yeah this game is broken as hell and it's kind of killing my enjoyment of it

it's honestly about 50/50 whether I'll even be able to join a server without getting some sort of error and when i do get in it's another roll of the dice on whether poo poo will even be working

had a fun bug earlier where missions just stopped giving rewards, $250 worth of moonshine money just evaporated

I just bought a Norfolk Roadster (one day before it went on sale lol) and yeah it's a real solid horse, feels kind of like a Turkoman but a little more skittish around gunfire. It's faster on paper though it weirdly doesn't feel that fast to me.

A lot of those horses require a pretty high level I think, but there's nothing wrong with any of the low level horses when you're just starting out.

The Tennessee Walker, Mustang, Hungarian Halfbred and Thoroughbreds are all good horses in their own right, in my experience.

Uh, half the effort just doesn't sound right. Driving the wagon carefully to not smash your bottles is a pain in the rear end, moonshiner missions / deliveries are usually more difficult and risky than resupplies / trader deliveries and before you get the full set of equipment the payouts are lovely for the time involved.

At "max level" trader earns a little less than moonshiner (like 180$/hour vs 200-220$/hour) but moonshiner is way more involved - which can be a good thing or a bad thing, of course.

moonshiner is click a button and deliver a wagon once every hour, trader you have to hunt a million animals (if they're even spawning) and do exactly one thousand resupplies to get a full wagon

i spend all my time between moonshine deliveries just hunting animals for cripps

i found trader real tedious when i was starting out but now that i don't need to aggressively farm xp or cash it's pretty chill and hunting is fun when there are spawns

there's a semi-reliable cougar spawn at night near beecher's hope which fills up a massive chunk of the bar if you get a perfect carcass

I jumped back into RDO for all the free stuff and it says I get a free delivery order from Cripps for trader but the option is grayed out? Even doing a resupply mission is grayed out. The only thing I can do is sell the $7 worth of goods or nothing. Is this a bug or am I missing something obvious like in GTAO when I didnt realize you could just register as CEO from the menu for like a week?

it's a shame because the trader and moonshine loop is super chill and fairly productive when everything works but there's so many things that can break that it's just not worth it

You can only buy them and only towards the end of the game, it sucks.

You could always spawn one in with a mod if you want to go to that effort.

Also the sad truth is that even though they put so much time and effort into it, RDR2 didn't come close to making the same amount of money as GTA5. I guess from Rockstar's perspective, working on Red Dead 2 at this point is just putting money on the table

much respect to the RDO guys for looking at how tedious and exploitative GTAO was deciding not to go down that path despite it making insane amounts of money for R*

I mean it might have killed support for the game but still

Tranq ammo in the varmint rifle is strange, figured shooting a beaver in the head with it would be a pretty quick nap time, but I had to keep shooting a bunch. Freed a wolf at a poacher camp and half expected it to slink away but instead it attacked me, so welp honor go down I guess.

Naturalist update is kinda weird.

At least animals and camps work now, didn't have a single disconnect. My private lobby firewall trick doesn't work anymore though, disconnected inside of a minute.

It's really weird, shooting an animal 14 times in the rear end with "sedative" bullets doesn't exactly feel like conservation. It's just a much sillier, much more difficult form of hunting.

Spent an hour running around collecting random samples, handed a bunch in and didn't even get enough xp to get to level 2 or enough money to cover the ammo. Maybe it's better once you start hunting legendaries?

Plus Harriet knows when you've been killing animals so you can't even work on the trader role at the same time.

And despite them making a big thing out of the two separate paths there's no actual way to progress the role if you hand stuff into the skinner.

Where do you get the missions from?

Evil Badman posted:

Harriet has missions at level 5.

ok but how do you even level up? It's like 50xp for every sample you hand in and 1500xp per level, do I just have to grind out 150 animal samples in the meantime?

I really feel like I'm missing something with this role.

e: searching around it seems like this is it, reddit recommends farming gators and farm animals for the first levels, apparently tranq bullets don't get you a wanted level at Emerald Ranch.

Also it looks like it's possible to stumble on legendary animals to trade into Gus for the cool outfits even without spending 25g on the role so, uh, maybe save your gold since that seems like the best content anyway? You'll miss out on perks and maps to legendaries though so not sure how practical that route will be.

I think it would've made more sense if you only had to shoot it with the sedative once, and then track it until it passed out.

Yes, obviously this. Like a grizzly bear I can understand taking 4 or 5 rounds to bring down but it takes 3 rounds just for an opossum. Most animals should be 1 shot.

I really enjoy hunting in this game but having to chase down animals on horseback while shooting them dozens of times is just dumb.

From what I've read on reddit/discord it seems like Harriet just won't work with you if you killed animals recently. You can get around it by waiting a while before you talk to her or switching instances.

Yep, if you've been killing too much and try to talk to her you get a cutscene where she yells at you then she gasses you again and you're locked out for a few minutes.

The lockout is pretty quick and then you're back in with no penalty.
