Lately I've been taking advantage of bridges for any especially mouthy NPCs that ride by.

Hogtie them and ride to the middle of the tallest bridge nearby (Bard's Crossing is best of course), then dump them off the side and wish then a bon voyage.¬† ūüĎč ūüĎč Bye bye, peckerhead!

It's more entertaining than just dropping them in a river, since they make a bit of noise on the way down. ūüėģ

Some things I find myself doing when I get immersed in the game:

 

- making sure I loot any bounty I capture (much to their annoyance) - shush yer mouth, that's my "finder's fee", that is!

- if I do a favour for some random person, I like to just give them a little nod or bow emote when the deal is done, because that's just good manners. :monocle:

- if Cripps insults my dog, then it's mandatory I use him for target practice - if he doesn't like it, he'll just have to learn to keep his damn mouth shut, yeah?

- judge whether bounties are worth taking on by weighing up whether or not they deserve it - so murderers and thieves who've hurt innocent people are fair game, whereas ...yeah, if you robbed Leviticus Cornwall, and no-one got caught in the crossfire, then good on you, frankly! :p

If my clothes are dirty from getting dumped off the horse, lifting bounties/animals, etc. I quickly change while on the horse to another then back so everything is nice and clean.

In missions and encounters with enemies, I always go for a melee kill, I love seeing my character covered in blood :p

Slashing with a throwing knife, will give you film worthy, blood splatter.

Every now and then i like to take a wagon for a cruise, when I'm done with it, gotta get rid of the evidence, so...

...I take it for a little ride off a cliff.

 

And whenever a Maxim gun is in a hideout, shine mission, bounty, i like to see how many goons I can eliminate before they get me.

Some of them don't fare too well..

I wait until I have 250 kills with a weapon before personalising it.  Takes longer than you might think.

I hardly ever use deadeye unless both the target and myself are moving fast, whether vs NPCs or players.

I guess that's why I'm not very good at pvp.

 

It's much more satisfying to manually aim.

It should be built in to the game that cards become less effective against anyone who doesn't use them.

I wish there were hardcore lobbies, no player blips, no cards, just skill and old school gaming.

Yes, my number one wish for the game. My guess is there's probably about a dozen of us world wide so not I'm sure about our chances.

Maybe something I don't do that most do...maybe, not sure how many actually do, but I have in actual fact never used autorun, not once, in fact I don't even know how to initiate it.

I wrote down on a sheet of paper the controls for quick reference ('cause I'm old), but I really don't know how to use autorun.

I mean I could look at my sheet and find out, but now that just feels wrong.  :lol:

 

I'm curious, how many people do use it?

Now this guy gets it. /\

 

They should have someone like you in a position of oversight for the content of this game.

When someone comes up with stupid out of context crap, there should be someone with veto power to just say...

Clearing Hideouts and Moonshiners with Revolver and Tomahawk only.....out of boredom and to get at least minimal thrill, to easy otherwise.

Oh yes, and another one, psychological....feeling like a crack whore drinking 3 Coffes and eating 2 stews just to get those 0,5 G ( sitting at 210 G after 2 months of Gameplay and have no idea why i will need them for )....well at least my decency stopped me from dancing in Moonshine Bar......

I've said this before, but if it keeps working then it bears repeating. I just approach each game day from the perspective of the character, who likes to eat, drink, listen to music in his bar, smoke, deliver moonshine, hunt, fish, and sometimes get crazy drunk and start barfights! He wanders around Valentine and Emerald farm area, with occasional visits to Lemoyne and Van Horn, and elsewhere around New Hanover, mainly to hunt or fish. He used to run bounties all the time for money and gold, but now he does it only on occasion, for the gold nuggets mostly but also to keep the juices flowing.

 

I don't run around like it's the apocalypse; I just mosey around doing my daytime activities, get coffee, breakfast, figure out a plan for the day. I try to get business done but I balance that with fun too: lots of stops at watering holes, lots of care for the horses, and lots of good eatin' and drinkin' 

 

It's a laid-back, fun-based method of playing the game, that doesn't progress fast but doesn't bore me either. I can't get locked into obsessing with rank or unlocking stuff. Probably wouldn't appeal to most players, this playstyle, which is why I'm better off without posses...I always get left behind as I'm taking my time getting distracted by the view, or enjoying a smoke.

 

Anyway that's some things I do these days to keep the game fresh. Just do what the character would want to do.

And THAT'S why I prefer to solo. My time is my own and I can play peacefully without being bothered.

 

Many times I'll park myself at a post office/stable/catalogue for a half hour or so and go off and do real life stuff, then come back to game to resume where I was previously. You can't really do that in a posse.
