  1. Fizhy and Strange Man have some pretty good videos on RDR2's secrets and Easter eggs. Fizhy: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgAAehNg2A_8KasULszwqsw Strange Man: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmQyHj6O6US8Jgj1WrXWZYg Any others you would recommend?

  2. Yes exactly my experience. I play a fair few games, always like DLC and updates, but also three of our kids are gamers and like different games, so capacity was always my issue. Don't know why I didn't think of an external drive before, to be honest!! As you say, literal game changer.

  3. Yeah. I've been watching some gameplay walkthroughs and Xbox really doesn't offer the same kinds of games except for a few examples that are on PS4 anyway. If I do move over to Playstation, I'll lose the chance to play Flight Simulator on the console. But that doesn't really matter as many Xbox games are also on PC. A big-ass external GPU should sort me out there, I think.

  4. A real quick search shows that Redbubble are selling GTA and RDR2 clothing. https://www.redbubble.com/shop/?iaCode=u-tees&query=rdr2&ref=search_box The website sells gear produced by independent designers and operate under a "fair use" policy where it comes to copyright. https://help.redbubble.com/hc/en-us/articles/201579195 "A NOTE ON FAIR USE: You might be able to incorporate someone else's copyright or trademark into your own work, if you do it in such a way that that is considered "fair use" or in such a way that qualifies as another permissible use. However, please be aware that “fair use” typically applies in limited circumstances and isn’t the same as “freedom of speech”. Quite frankly “fair use” is a difficult concept, even for the experts, and the scope of “fair use” is different in different countries. So even if you think you’ve created a work covered by “fair use” or another permissible use, you should talk to an attorney prior to using it in connection with the Redbubble service. While some uses might appear “fair” or permissible to you, we ask that you understand that Redbubble must act in accordance with its Notice and Takedown procedure when a report has been received. Additionally, certain works may be taken down without a specific report being received if we are otherwise alerted or aware of potential infringement issues. Ultimately, you take full responsibility for the works you upload and display on Redbubble. This is reflected in the Redbubble User Agreement. Use of the Redbubble website indicates continued acceptance of this Agreement. So please do us all a favour and if someone has created or owns the rights to a picture, painting, photograph, logo, story, poem or any other work, copyright, trademark or publicity right (regardless of whether it’s an individual or a large global company), obtain consent before you use that work in connection with the Redbubble service. This will help ensure that you don’t infringe the rights of any third party and help us promote an encouraging and inspired environment at Redbubble filled with wit, soul, meaning and aesthetic genius." The last paragraph here assumes that deigners have obtained permission (so Redbubble doesn't have to). You'd reasonably assume that most people don't bother. The sheer amount of designs available seems to imply that R* isn't agressively chasing down copyright infringments.

  5. I'd be fine with that. But maybe there's someone at Take Two that can be contacted about it? Like, "Hey, I run a fan site of RDR fans called RDR2.org and want to make some shirts with our original logo and the name 'RDR2.org' in order to support our community. Would this be something Take Two and Rockstar Games would take issue with?"

  6. If trademarks are an issue, then maybe t-shirts with just the outlaw from the site logo.

  7. Whatever they did on the back end recently has FINALLY stabilized my connection enough that I can grind for 4-5 hours online with maybe one disconnect. So, I've been immersed in the game for a few weeks now, finally playing catch up and having a ball doing so. And I let my son play as well. Probably not the best parenting decision ever, but I figure if he's going to be gaming, be needs to play GOOD games, and not trash ftp titles that make money with ads and mtx The refining that's taken place in the last year or so has made a huge difference, too. I imagine posses are more fun now than they've been since launch.

  8. Part of the issue is licensing. Because Red Dead Redemption 2 is trademarked by R* in multiple jurisdictions, I imagine it's variants are as well. Let's see... http://tmsearch.uspto.gov/bin/gate.exe?f=doc&state=4806:3u2zdt.10.54 That's Take Two Interactive's filing for Red Dead Redemption, including tee shirts. Now, with how Corporation friendly US law is, I suspect that if TTI wanted to challenge the use of RDR2.org, they'd be successful. Copyright claims, especially related to IPs are very protective and have a lot of safeguards against derivative is similar sounding names. Which isn't to say that it can't be done, but it may behoove anyone considering something similar to entertain only attempting to profit off of original content, like user posts or art (much of which is protected by fair use).

  9. Thanks everyone, quite flattering really I would need check if we can use the logo in that way. Also would you want the text RDR2.org as well, or not? I am not fussed either way. Then I would need to look at options how to get it done. I remember it being quite easy to setup printing t-shirts these days. Cheers

  10. Tips and Tricks for Aspiring Naturalists Game Tips August 5, 2020 To help budding Naturalists boost their progress and conquer the animal kingdom in Red Dead Online, we've compiled a list of a few helpful tips and tricks to get started. Whether it's helping Harriet catalogue the kaleidoscope of natural life on the frontier or skinning specimens for Gus Macmillan to turn into beautiful, custom-made pieces of clothing, these tips should come in handy for anyone taking on the latest Frontier Pursuit. (source: Dande_Lion on Social Club) Getting Started and Ranking Up Visit Harriet Davenport at the Welcome Center in Strawberry to start your Naturalist journey. If you don't want to purchase the Sample Kit right away, it can be bought from her shop at any time. Harriet has set up shops at three locations across the map - West of Wallace Station, in the marshes of Lagras and near MacFarlane Ranch. Harriet sells .22 Sedative ammo for the Varmint Rifle, which you'll need in order to sedate and sample most animals. As soon as you wake up after your initial introduction to Harriet and the Naturalist Role, head back to one of Harriet's Shops and stock up. Bringing Animal Samples from sedated animals to Harriet is the fastest way to start earning Naturalist XP and RDO$. As you rank up, you'll start to gain access to a variety of new gameplay options to continue your journey. If you prefer, you can instead choose to bring carcasses or pelts to Gus Macmillan, who will pay RDO$ for these goods and can craft unique clothing from their hides for purchase. While working for Gus will bring you immediate benefits in the form of clothing, hunting for Gus does not provide Naturalist role XP. Starting at Naturalist Rank 5, Harriet's Sighting Missions will become available. These are multi-staged and storied hunts in which a successful sighting will award you with Naturalist XP should you decide to sample the Legendary Animal. Subsequently selling your Legendary Animal sample will earn you even more Naturalist XP and allow you to progress through the role more quickly, while choosing instead to skin the animal for Gus will earn you regular XP and a Legendary Pelt for Gus to craft with - the choice is yours. Harriet's "Poached Animals" Missions are also a great way to gain Naturalist XP. These can be accessed by speaking with Harriet at her shop, selecting "Missions" and pressing Square/X/Space to launch them. There will be a cooldown period before you can launch another mission. Check your Animal Field Guide - found in your Satchel or the Item Wheel - to track your progress. Each unique Animal Sample sold to Harriet will result in a stamp appearing over the corresponding Animal in your Guide. Once each Animal within a single Category has been stamped, highlight your completed Category and select the “Trade In” option to receive a hefty payout of RDO$ & RP. Once you’ve traded in a fully stamped Category, your stamp progress will reset and you can begin stamping them once again. To seek out Legendary Animals, check your Legendary Animal Map (accessed via the Satchel). Turning in Legendary Animal Samples will earn more Role XP than regular samples. As you rank up through the Naturalist Role, more Legendary Animals will begin to show up in Free Roam. Speak with Harriet regularly so she can mark these new discoveries on your Legendary Animal Map. Complete any available Naturalist Daily Challenges to pull down Naturalist XP and Gold. At Naturalist Rank 4, you will start to receive invites to Naturalist Free Roam Events - these will award large amounts of Naturalist XP for participating and some are also a great opportunity to get samples for Legendary Animals. At Naturalist Rank 7, you may begin to come across poachers in Free Roam who have captured certain animals. Deal with them as appropriate and release the trapped animals to gain even more Naturalist XP. Tools of The Trade Remember to double check the ammo you’re using on your Varmint Rifle to make sure you don't kill an animal you’re trying to sedate. You can change your selected ammo on a weapon with the d-pad or mouse while using the Weapon Wheel (LB/L2/Tab key). It takes multiple shots to sedate an animal - the amount of shots varies depending on the animal’s size. Hits to critical areas such as the head or heart will down the animal faster. Smaller animals such as birds and squirrels cannot be sedated, so be careful not to kill them with sedative ammo (unless you're planning on selling these materials to Gus, of course) Sedative ammo still does damage to an animal once it’s been knocked out. Once you have successfully sedated an animal, you will see your reticule turn to a red cross and hear a distinctive sound. A sedated animal can’t be sampled while in water – use the lasso to pull it to the shore. You can’t use the lasso on smaller animals (e.g. water snakes) so it’s best to stalk them until they reach the shore before taking your shot. You can also jump in and gently nudge them to shore if they manage to make it back into the water. Animals will wake up naturally once you’ve left the surrounding area. Many will run off, but aggressive animals may attack again if you stick around. Optionally, you can use Animal Reviver (available at Harriet's Shop) to revive a sedated animal and gain additional Role XP. The Bounty Hunter’s Eagle Eye+ ability will help track animals more efficiently. Twitter user @station069 recommends using Refined Binoculars and Paint it Black to quickly bring down animals When dealing with pack animals, particularly predators, focusing your tranquilizer fire on one specimen helps avoid wasting ammunition. Remember to keep an eye on the number of samples in your satchel. While you can (and should!) store multiple samples at once for efficiency, you can only hold a set amount at a time. Harriet Davenport Redditor u/Curiedoesthestream shared this moment right before incurring Harriet's wrath after harming a few too many animals. Fill out each requirement in the Animal Field Guide to complete progress for each animal. Photographs can be taken with either the Camera or the Advanced Camera. The animal must be fully conscious and in-frame to count towards your progress. Hold off with the itchy trigger finger if you want to complete your Animal Field Guide - you can't study, sample or effectively photograph an animal once it's dead. Killing too many animals may upset Harriet. If she gives you the cold shoulder, you may need to allow her a few minutes before she's ready to speak with you again. You can complete the "study" requirement for animals by aiming at them and pressing the appropriate button when prompted. Per Redditor u/fusi9n: "Study every animal you come across. I've just been aiming my rifle at them as I ride past." Gus Macmillan While Gus will pay good money for a full carcass, he cannot craft unique clothing from intact animals. If you are seeking his craftsmanship in the form of a new coat or otherwise, you must skin your bounty before selling it to him. Selling the pelt itself will unlock the related garment set for purchase. Additionally, certain animal parts will help unlock special Trinkets for purchase. Sell Legendary Animal Pelts to Gus and then browse his Garment Sets section to view craftable Legendary coats and items. @McRagstig staying warm in the Legendary Moonstone Coat, courtesy of Gus Macmillan. You cannot skin an animal after it's been sedated, even if you've revived it. Bear this in mind and approach each hunt with either the intention to sample or skin - not both. As more Legendary Animals are added to Red Dead Online in the coming weeks, many more clothing options and items will become available from Gus. Advanced Camera Purchasing an Advanced Camera can be done through the handheld catalogue or on Social Club. While you can use the standard Camera to snap photos of animals for your Field Guide, you may benefit from the Advanced Camera’s increased maneuverability. While in Handheld mode, you can walk around and crouch with the Advanced Camera. Make sure to snap your photo before using sedative shots on your target - photos of a tranquilized or deceased animal won’t count toward your Field Guide progress. The Advanced Camera’s viewfinder will turn green when an animal is in frame, so you can get the perfect shot every time. Harriet sells a Blending Tonic which will allow you to get closer to wildlife to snap it before it flees or attacks. As with the regular Camera, head to the Social Club menu option in-game where you can edit photos and upload them to your Social Club profile. Legendary Animals @kodiikat shared an image of the Legendary Inahme Elk in its natural habitat on Instagram. Check your Legendary Animal Map (accessed via your Satchel in the "Documents" section) for available Legendary Animals to track and hunt in Free Roam. Legendary Animals will often attempt to run away from you – make sure to have plenty of Bitters for you and Stimulant for your horse before seeking one out. Use some Legendary Animal Pheromones (available at Harriet's Shop) if you’ve lost sight of the animal. It is not advised to use Legendary Animal Pheromones until you've already received a notification that there is a Legendary Animal in the area. If you're struggling to find Legendary Animals in Free Roam, check out the Legendary Animal Map that Harriet gave you, and make sure to visit her often for updates on which animals have been spotted and where. Completing more fields in the Animal Field Guide will also result in more information on the Legendary Animal’s preference for time of day and weather. Throughout your progression in the Naturalist Role, you will rank up your Eagle Eye making it easier to track and find Legendary Animals. To help you find each Legendary Animal, try paying attention to their favored weather conditions as well as the times at which they're most active: Legendary Zizi Beaver is particularly active around dusk or dawn. Legendary Moon Beaver prefers moister weather and is also more active at either end of the day. Legendary Coji Boar typically appears earlier in the day. Legendary Wakpa Boar roams during the daytime in wetter weather. Legendary Katata Elk enjoys drizzly/foggy weather and is most active during the daytime Legendary Ozula Elk emerges later in the day, also preferring drizzly/foggy weather Legendary Ota Fox roams at dawn and dusk, primarily during clear or overcast weather Legendary Marble Fox also prefers around sunrise/sunset and is most active during clear or overcast weather Legendary Tatanka Bison (unlocks at Naturalist Rank 5) can be found during daytime hours, often preferring rainy/drizzly weather Legendary Winyan Bison (unlocks at Naturalist Rank 5) is a nocturnal creature, unlikely to be found during storms or rainfall. Legendary Emerald Wolf (unlocks at Naturalist Rank 5) usually prowls at dusk or at night, striking during rainy or stormy weather. Legendary Onyx Wolf (unlocks at Naturalist Rank 5) is a night-dwelling animal, showing its face in clear or overcast weather. Legendary Iguga Cougar (unlocks at Naturalist Rank 10) typically hunts at dusk during rainy or drizzly conditions. Legendary Maza Cougar (unlocks at Naturalist Rank 10) is most active in the day, also preferring wetter weather. Many more Legendary Animals are available to track and hunt via Harriet's Sighting Missions, which unlock at Naturalist Rank 5 and can be launched by speaking with her at her Shop. Additional Tips When dealing with poachers in missions or in Free Roam, be sure to gather samples from any animals you've freed before selling those to Harriet for RDO$ and Role XP rewards. Also loot any poachers you've dispatched as they may be carrying pelts or other valuables. Various baits that you've crafted or purchased from the Catalogue can help attract animals to the area for studying, sedating or hunting. If you’re after pelts or carcasses, it's always a good idea to hunt efficiently and reduce damaging pelts - many animals can be lassoed and killed with a knife for a perfect pelt. For bigger game, clean headshots with the Bolt-Action or Rolling Block Rifle can help you get a one-shot kill.

  11. I can't reiterate how transformative the external drives have been. For years I've been resistant to digital download on my consoles for a lot of reasons. I finally stated dipping my proverbial toes into dds within the past year or so, and out of necessity, picked up a relatively inexpensive 2TB external drive as a black Friday special last year. Literal game-changer.
