So many Carcasses!

Hey all just wondering if you think there are too many elk carcasses in the game?

Personally I think there are because I can easily get through the game without hunting at all, and not only is that not as fun or challenging, but it's not the way life works in the wild.

It's made worse by the fact that I have the glitch where if I kill an elk two carcasses appear instead of just one. Also I've seen glitched spawns where there are three carcasses all in the same place at the same time. This has happened twice to me in AM. Here's a screenshot of one right outside the Slough Pack territory http://i832.photobucket.com/albums/zz24 ... glitch.png

But yeah in AM I only hunt 'cause it's fun not 'cause I have to and in SC I never even visit a Hunting Ground or the Cattle Ranch because I have plenty of carcasses to feed my pups. Another problem is there's always so many near my den that they keep attracting predators near my pups. But I think there should be less to make the game more realistic, challenging, and fun.

So what do you think, "Are there too many carcasses in the game?"

(I hope there's not a topic like this)

I think so. I realized the two-carcass trick too, it seemed a little odd. That makes living in the wild a who lot easier...

I personally think that the amount of carcasses is okay. They could probably lower the amount just a bit, but the game wouldn't be much fun if you died every couple minutes because you couldn't find a carcass and can't hunt down an elk. I don't know how many carcasses are actually out in the wild, but I think the developers made it so that you could choose for yourself whether you wanted to make it hard and hunt, or just eat from carcasses and make it easy on yourself.
That's my two cents :D

Definitely! There are so many carcasses around that sometimes my game crashes and slows down because it it just too much and my computer can't handle it!Also there are too many coyotes around and it makes my life a nightmare.
I would love if there was a smaller number of them in the future.Or at least an option to lower down the number. :mrgreen:

I definitely think there are too many carcasses in the game. It makes the game and easy and less fun and challenging. I once found a four-headed elk. Too amazed to take a screenshot, though. xD If there were really that many elk carcasses in the real Slough Creek, wolves would become lazy little creatures and hardly have to move to get some food. xD

I definitely believe that there's more than an abundance of carcasses, which makes it less challenging and more unrealistic. Most of the time when I go to get food for myself or my pups and when the carcass disappears, I'll go to a different one that may be nearby and there's instantly another carcass spawned where the first one originally was. I barely ever have to leave my territory to find a carcass, since that 3 carcass glitch applies a lot whenever I play. I actually like to hunt in the game and it's basically impossible in SC if you have pups, since you're too busy caring for them and also because there's, like, 5 carcasses only 10 feet away. It gets annoying, too. So yes, I believe that in 2.5 or possibly a later episode, they should tone down the amount of carcasses and how rapidly they re-spawn.

I agree there is many carcasses, but sometimes it's handy if you don't want to go hunt (lazy like me), you can just go to a carcass and take food to puppies. In an earlier version of AM there was much, much more carcasses almost everywhere

I've had an elk with nine heads before. That's DEFINITELY way too many <3

If they'd decrease the number a leeeetle bit i'd be fine :3

There are WAY too many carcasses! Although it is helpful, it is really unrealistic and not at all challenging.They should have something in game settings controlling how many elk carcasses there are.

I agree completely. My life is lazy and lathargic, other then the occasional Bob or Chester. A setting to control the carcass amount would be great. The game is still fun for me, and I think the carcass amount in Slough Creek is actually helpful for beginners like me or people who don't like to or are not good at hunting. In Amethyst Mountain, I almost always hunt with my mate, considering that I don't have to worry about my pups.

Well, that's my ramble. :)

I now feel the need to add that to the ideas list.


That aside, I agree. I'm not sure what's up with the issue of another carcass appearing right after you kill an elk.

I gladly agree that there are WAY TOO MANY CARCASSES throughout the game, usually I be roaming around then one just pops in front of me O.o usually it surrounds some of the dens like the small tree den near slough creek, aspen, and saddle. I don't mind it, yet I really do hope they fix the glitches that were happening recently... the scent is there but not the meal. I tell others to run around then come back and it appears randomly. sometimes when someone eats it all, devouring it quickly the scent still remains, its strange. yet helpful in a way :P
