Re: Government: Wild red wolf population could soon be wiped

there's now a facebook petition going around to save the animals. i love the effort but... nobody in the comments there seems to understand that there's not much hope anymore, seeing as its only a matter of time before their genetics break down. they're just bashing the usfw for "not caring," which...

Re: Woman treed by wolves almost didn't receive helicopter h

I don't understand why they hesitated to send the helicopter in the first place. Yeah, wolves are federally listed, but it is not like they were going to be killed, just scared off by the sound of the helicopter. Even if some were accidentally harmed in the process of rescue, a human's life will alw...

Re: Wolf illegally shot, tied to concrete and dumped in Germ

I personally don't mind culling populations if they get too high, but as the article states the wolf is considered endangered in Germany and it is illegal to kill them. There are ways to protect your livestock from predation (which would help against all predators, not just wolves) besides shooting ...

Re: How would playing with a wolf pup be like?

To my knowledge, dogs are eager to please people and can read human emotions/facial expressions, while wolves cannot. So a dog puppy will know when you are upset/hurt and might stop with a firm 'no', but a wolf puppy probably won't care, if it would even approach you in the first place.

Re: A Little Elk Music

The only thing that concerns me is the run animation? It seems different from previous videos, like it is a little stiff? Or is that the IK system trying to work with all the hills? NOTE: Oops, a couple things (head position and gallop animation) got set incorrectly last week, when we had to rebuil...

Re: A Little Elk Music

I love the music, Tim always does such a great job. It certainly fits - as soon as he started strumming I felt like I needed to go for a run, haha. I love how your mate checked in on you, and how she looked over to you a couple of times...super cute & it adds to the realism!

Re: How to Bite an Elk

The effort invested in the IK system is paying off, it looks fantastic despite being a WIP. Although, I can't decide if the 'wolf?' at the end is horrifying or hilarious!

World's Last Wild Red Wolves

I think this is incredibly sad, seems the EPA is giving into landowner pressure. From the NY Wolf Center: Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qU8D5DwYbJc On June 28, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) announced a proposal that will no doubt result in the extinction of red wolves in the wi...

Re: Wolf ventures over 200 miles from radioactive Chernobyl

Pretty cool. It would be interesting to see if its mutated genes (from the radiation) would affect any nearby wolf populations a significant way or not. And how different genetically it is from the non-mutated population.

Re: Playful Pups

I can strongly relate to the parent wolf sleeping, that’s how I felt when raising my puppy...exhausted all the time!

Beautiful animations, very smooth! My favourite is the one shaking the stick

Will water have its own scent? So you can find some without using the map.

Seems like Valve (the people who make the Portal and Half-life games) can't count to 3 as NEITHER of those successful series have a 3rd entry. :roll:

Re: For Better or For Worse

I love this. Mates dying will add so much more to the game! And now there is a lot to consider when choosing a mate, so more replayability! I think my worst mate was in one of the 2.7 betas...where the mate just took a pup and ran away with it to the edge of the map somewhere. Pup eventually starved...
