  1. Not sure if people have used this escape point or not but it is very easy to do and is still working in the latest version: All you need is to cross the river northeast of manteca falls and use a few bottles of rum to get further up the hill than you normally should be... From there you have a fantastic view and quite a picturesque area to explore. If you want to get to guarma, Mexico, or the south side of the lanaheche river, this is the easiest way to do it! You can't take your horse so you'll want to use a horse spawning cheat code to really explore.
  2. Another RDR2 update installed tonight. I then tried the following map escape technique that I haven't tried before and can confirm that it does still work in the very latest patch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e0Hnc6e1Rh8 Unfortunately this is a "get drunk at the edge of the map" exploit much the same as the two cave exploits, which means you can't take your own horse with you. You can of course spawn a race horse using a cheat code and use that to explore outside the map, so better than nothing!
  3. Although I haven't done a complete 360 degree circumnavigation of the map borders in one session, I have made it into Mexico from the northerly escape point going via both the westerly route and the easterly route where you cross the river upstream of Annesburg. Of the two the easterly route while long is by far my favourite as the westerly route into Mexico gets very confusing as you end up in a sea of low resolution un-textured hills at one point where you can totally lose your bearings. Sadly Rockstar have patched this escape method in one of the recent patches by removing the camping spawn point above the hill where you go into camping mode. So instead of camping outside of the normally accessible area to the north and then simply riding your horse further north then north east to get out of the map, you end up in a campsite far to the south within the normal playable area. So this method of escape is no longer possible. Edepot has found another way out of the map unfortunately you can't take your horse with you using this method. Without a horse exploration outside the border area is painfully slow, and the new escape point is a long way from any out of map wild horses which you could acquire. Pity! I really enjoyed the ease of escaping and exploring outside the map boundaries, and it made the world feel even bigger despite literally being able to see the "seams" at the extremities of the explorable area, but to be honest I'm surprised Rockstar didn't fix it sooner when all they had to do was remove an out of bounds camping spawn site... It was never a bug in the code as such, just a spawn point placed in a location which is normally inaccessible on foot.
  4. Made it all the way to the land to the east of Van Horn Trading post on my first attempt then was killed by a cougar. Damn!
  5. Someone has found a new technique for getting outside the map which is superior to getting drunk in a cave. This method doesn't require getting drunk and it's possible to take your regular horse with you, which is the first method I've seen which will do this. Basically you camp at a specific location near barrow lagoon - this causes you to set up camp in a normally inaccessible area , from there you can ride your horse over the mountains to Tempest Rim, (also normally inaccessible) and from there simply ride north out of the map boundaries on your own horse which means you have all weapons etc available. 😀 In this specific video the author also shows how to cross the Lannahechee river east and up river of Anniesburg and get across onto the east side of the map across from van horn trading post etc. WIth the cave exploit I had previously tried really hard to get across this river upstream of Annesburg and it looked like I should be able to make it but the strong current meant I could never quite manage it, however this video demonstrates how to do it, showing that it is actually possible, meaning it is much easier to get to Guarma and probably also Mexico. I tried many times to go right from the north exit point west around past new austin and into mexico and while I nearly made it it is far, far too time consuming. The method in this video going east and then crossing the river looks far, far easier. Enjoy.
  6. There's a lot of talk online about how to get to Mexico using various glitches but I haven't seen much about exploring outside the western/northern/eastern boundaries of the game until I came across this youtube video showing an easy way to get out of the map that still works in 1.05: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xaVezKuc1jI I've been exploring outside the boundary of the map to the west, north and east for a while now and I'm absolutely STAGGERED at how much map there is outside the normal boundary of the map. I have not seen this much out of boundary map in any other game. Not all of it is fully textured or completed, and you do need to watch out for "fall through" ground at the very outer limits (where you get stuck in an infinite falling loop) but there are literally miles and miles of ground normally invisible and inaccessible that are fully rendered. Many areas don't have wildlife but some do. I've attached map screenshots to show just how far the out of bounds area goes - with the north and north east being the most interesting to explore so far, and I haven't got anywhere near exploring it all. It seems like there is nearly half as much area outside the normal boundary as there is inside it. The youtube video shows two ways to get out - one a cave near Pronghorn Ranch, and the second a cave near The Loft. The first cave is very easy - just take enough booze to get yourself drunk, go into the cave to the location shown then get drunk enough to pass out and you'll respawn nearby outside the map. Easy - except without your horse it just takes far too long to get anywhere and that area is largely snow so even slower going and not nearly as interesting as the north east part. The second cave is much more difficult - there is a piece of rock you need to run up and slide on, it can take dozens of attempts to get it right. However when you do eventually get it right it's worth it - after passing out you'll respawn just above the cave still within the normal boundary of the map, however it is a high section that is not normally reachable. Go north slightly east and you will find a way to cross the map boundary. Just past this boundary you'll find some wild horses, calm or lasso then tame a horse and you will then have transport to explore. I recommend finishing the game before exploring out of the map, and go to a fence first to fully upgrade your pouch so you have a huge inventory space to carry ridiculous amounts of booze (to pass out to get out of the map) food, horse reviver, and other supplies. There is no way all this extra map area was created only as backdrop to be seen from afar - there is perfectly detailed scenery going on for miles that can never even be seen from the distance. It's pretty clear that a lot more map was made for the game than we got to see, and they then added artificial "slippery" barriers and rock faces to keep us inside a reduced area after deciding that all that extra area wasn't necessary for story purposes. Some of the terrain and the very limits looks procedurally generated, but a lot looks hand crafted. I don't know what happens if you try to save and reload outside the map, I haven't tried to do that yet! Most likely you'll just end up back inside the map.
  7. Van Horn is brutal. There doesn't seem to be any police force there - the locals just take things into their own hands instead of reporting you and are itching to pull a gun. Similar to you, I bumped into someone in the bar, got into a fist fight, then everyone in the town got out their guns to go after me. I hid behind a stack of boxes near the south entrance to the town mowing everyone down until everyone in the town was dead, no bounty, nobody running away to report me. If you wait a couple of minutes more angry mob will spawn at the other end of town and come after you again. You can repeat this indefinitely until you run out of ammo or run away. At no point did I get a bounty. The towns folk are sure angry with you after that though, I'm not sure if there is any way to "make up" with them since there is no bounty to pay, perhaps after enough time they will forgive you. I ended up reloading a save as shooting up the town multiple times over destroyed my honour rating. I agree that different towns and areas behaving differently to your actions makes it more interesting.
  8. Yep, I noticed the same thing. Upgraded to the best stirrups but when I check the horse stats on the stats page later the stats afforded by the stirrups are incorrect.
