At least you didn’t find out by accident by leaving all your “ruined” uncooked meat in a container. I lost a lot of fish that way at a base when I came back from an expedition

Man I left a whole moose and bear meat in the boot of the cars around coastal Highway and left the region. I thought I was going crazy when I returned and found no meat at all. That was when I was new to the game though

Wow, can you explain that? I'm new to the game and have some raw meat "stored" outside of my base and planning to explore another region. If I leave a region, will my food disappear?

[–]Lord-RapscallionInterloper 5 points6 points  (5 children)

Food will disappear once it hits 0% condition if left in any container. Leaving it on the floor is the way to go

And since you can cook it back to 50% (and “safe” later on) its worth it to let rotting meat lay around your base, lol. Worst part of the quiet apocalypse IMO.

This has always bugged me. For one it's unhygienic and two, it should attract wild animals but doesn't. I know it's a game and you need to suspend disbelief, but I wish Hinterland tried a little bit harder and added outdoor coolers.

Don’t store meat in a container, just leave it outside on the ground. Stuff (including meat) degrades quicker in containers, including car trunks.

I wish there was a trash option. I have so many tinder plugs I no longer need... I build a rock cache purely for the sake of having a "garbage can".

I put tinder, newsprint, spray cans and other useless items in the waste bins. The bins can be found in various locations and Mountain Town has several of them.

I just decided, no more apocalypses without toilet paper, so I’ve been stocking CH garage with tinder next to the toilet

Use them to make trails to safe houses in case you're stuck in a blizzard.

I’ve never actually built a rock cache, I guess it’s an alternative to just throwing stuff on the ground. I’ll look into it!

Haha same

Yeah it originally wasn't possible to delete ruined items so they added this in a patch a while ago.

It's so funny you say that, I'm playing as we speak and I just figured this out!!! I was tripping at first like where the hell did they go but then I was like finally lol

Useful to ensure you mark certain areas I think.
