    Not so fast.
    In Britain there is a cutoff at 2000ft, hence that story about the hill that became a mountain:

    (In Switzerland 2000ft is a minor bump)

    A bump describes exactly what we, snowboarders think of less than 1km high hills... But it is nature and it`s gorgeous everywhere.

    I can`t wait to see how new RWG is going on, because if we have ..i mean, when we have it, we gonna love it.

    Because if regular animals are attracted to you as a result of you having stockpiled meat, it defeats the purpose. It just becomes a meat factory. You kill them and end up with even more meat.
    Itís like saying we need to nerf the amount of wood a player can have, so if they have too much, then spawn extra trees around their base.

    It was a Welsh mountain the Englishman went up.

    Edited: Finally back behind a real keyboard.

    The cutoff for Britain is Ben Nevis at 4,413ft. The highest in England is Scafell pike at 3,209ft.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nation...eaks_Challenge

    I met a Swiss lad on my way down from Scafell pike. He said he had bathed in a mountain lake higher than that. I had to point out that most of his country was higher than that. It's damn difficult to take a bath in a Swiss house at a lower altitude. :-)

    Maybe it should attract vultures.

    I like that almost as much as bandits. In A18, feathers will be more scarce. While this could be considered a feather factory, it has the potential to be balanced enough to at least make it a tough decision on whether you should do this on purpose or not.
    Then again, it might not be balanced enough.
    No idea atm

    The list shows every book that is in existence and checks off the ones that you found so it does show all the books out in the wild that you havenít found. The only people who will use Google or a wiki are those who find it fun to do so for its own sake.

    Supposedly Gazz did, I need to try one yet.

    So basically, they can shoot clean through a deer (50 pound hunting-bow). A stronger bow could easily shoot through a (no armored) zombie...
    Our shoot through tech only supports rays not projectiles.

    Man, looting just got HYPED again!

    Great change.
    I'm a bit confused by your question so I'll just blanket statement the system as best as I can.
    There are a lot of book sets that unlock unique perks that are designed to augment each play style or weapon archtype. Collecting all 7 unlocks a completion bonus perk that is pretty kickass or borderline OP.

    There are schematics for all the things that the skill perks unlock (Not the books). For example, the first rank of of boomstick allows you to craft a double barrel shotgun, but you can also find a double barrel shotgun schematic, which teaches you permanently how to craft a double barrel shotgun. However, that schematic does NOT grant you any of the abilities the first rank of shotgun messiah, such as do more damage.

    So the first rank of boomstick does this:
    Maybe your aim isn't so good or you just like doing a lot of damage up close and personal. Either way a hobo with a shotgun is not to be messed with. Craft faulty quality Shotguns, deal 10% more damage, 10% faster fire rate, and 10% faster reload. Increases chance to dismember by 5%.

    The schematic does this: Craft faulty quality Shotguns.

    So a schematic will let you do the basic crafting is all, the perk gives you the full nine yards. Its more useful for forge, or bandages if you don't want to be a doctor but want to craft bandages, then find the schematic. If you interested in all the benefits, buy the perk. The schematics let you focus on your build and give you entry level access to some stuff outside of your specialty.

    +1 I would love this.
    No you wouldn't. You really want to watch 12 shells load and be locked up for 20 seconds?

    When you find one, you get a bonus, if you find the entire collection, you get something special.

    Perks give you bonuses, unrelated to books and they also unlock recipes.
    So if you want to craft something, you can buy the perk or try to find the schematic (recipe), but the perk is still relevant as an investment because of the bonus it gives.
    This.

    If the animation was able to be interrupted by switching weapons or clicking to fire, yes.

    "Watching a gun reload is not fun. It is fine the way it is. etc....." Just my guess.
