Don't get me wrong, I'm not totally against hunting especially when it comes to feeding your family. Sport/trophy hunting is a different story.

Many sportsmen are also hunting for the purpose of harvesting the meat, skins, etc. for their families, friends, to feed the needy, etc. so they're cool in my book.  If someone is simply hunting an animal for a tusk, a head, etc. and wasting the animal or otherwise poaching and breaking laws, then that's a whole different story.  

Yeah, I definitely wouldn't take issue with having to kill an animal myself if I had to.  ....but it's just not a thing I like to do.  I do enjoy fishing, cooking and eating my own catch though.  .....just not the cleaning.  ....yuck.  ;)

Turkeys are hella plentiful, and super cheap. One 3 star turkey ain't worth much to even think about. Food sharing sounds nice but isn't needed. If you can't get food in this game on your own, you're

It would be nice to have a food share.

Today for example, I had to make a choice and in the end I had to leave a 3 star turkey on the ground to rot, instead I noticed a blue dot near me, so I sent him a note and told him, if you want it, I am leaving it here, on the road.

I cant see wasting it. then it occurred to me, it would be nice to have several designated food share locations, where you can elect to send your extra food, or a way to designate it to a player.

Player trading and assisting should be a thing,

with all the hunting we do, it just makes sense.

I thought maybe leave a food share bin at several locations around the map, or have an option that allows you to either designate an item for the local share or to the nearest players.

that way a player can alwasy check a food share to see if there is anything in there he or she needs and also be able to use those pelts and carcasses we cant carry, this could also be rewarded with an xp or honor boost for taking part in contributing, or low honor for taking from it, I dunno I think in there is an idea.

There is no reason to implemet this imo. Animals are everywhere. If You manage to kill all of them in a spot zone just run away a bit and come back they spawn again. What is the point in sharing those ? 

Even good to leave animals to rot - it attracts birds and whatnot to the carcass and you can kill em too :) 

Puting a 3 star turkey on Your horse is a waste of space. It only gives You one $ - there are animals that get You twice as much. 

No offence but i've been reading Your posts for a while and i noticed that You tend to create a lot of artificial problems that haunt You in some way - maybe this online game isn't for You?

If you think that is mean, than I am the Devil's   Favorite Demon. I feel nothing for anything in this game. Why? Cause it is a game. I get 200xp a day on running bunnies over because it is easy points...and is kinda funny how dumb they are. Well if you rope deer and stick a knife in their neck.....you don't have to worry about ruining pelt. But than again the sound they make may get to you....

Now this is how I play as well. I kill every animal i see. If it flies it dies, if it crawls it dies, some fishes in the water ? boom goes my dynamite. Even if i have full  pelts, paws, tooths, feathers etc and moving to the butcher to sell em i kill every animal i can on the way  - its xp.   I run stuff over with my horse as well coz its funny and gives You xp. Hell i run ppl over for the achievement.  I dont shoot blue dots unless i see some suspicious sh*t.  Not that im a bad person irl. Its just a game and im making most fun of it i can while maximizing my xp and money gain.

I like this idea. They would need to put add few safeguards  to prevent it from being a trolling tool or being used as bait. Color coding the dots to match the person  who pinged it would be easy enough to eliminate it being used as bait.  Also, if you hover over the location on the map it should tell you what's in it, to prevent trolls making you travel to a location for a 1*  rat carcass or something.

Please dont.  I dont want to hurt anyone here. just stating my thoughts.  I saw him struggling with problems that really arent problems what so ever, getting frustrated. The game is what it is and (hopefully) will never be hello kitty island adventure. It's not that im saying for him to leave or that he is not welcome. I respect him as a person as much as i respect anyone here... cmon we r adults. At least most of us. 

He's idea of sharing makes no sense what so ever for me and looks like a lot of dev work to implemet such system and for what ?  Did they share food in the Wild West? Were there boxes with meat on the trails? 

I would love to see gold mining (panning) for gold an option, would love to be able to sell crafted potions and remedies to other players, would love to have gambling in saloons.

He's not saying that he shouldn't express himself. But as this post is an example, he is trying to fix a problem that he creates. To me it just sounds like he wants handouts and everything "right now" seeing as how he would like to buy the high rank stuff with real money to avoid the grind. Which is a huge problem in most MMOs. Grinding for the goods is a staple of an mmo, if people don't want to do any of that then I'd suggest not playing MMOs.

Also gonna note that all the times NPCs in single player offered free food you got robbed or ya know.....

No, he's just trying to be thoughtful of others, looking for ways to help others rather than being a selfish prick like so many others I've seen and I commend him for it.

Hunting it literally the easiest thing to do in this game. If you can't provide food for yourself, this may not be your bag. It is beyond easy. No need to have a free handout service for food. I'm sorry but it would water down this game even more. This isn't a knock on anyone , but it is totally unnecessary to have this .  That is like me starting a Go Fund Me so I can get a Turkoman.

I wouldn't call it help but enabling laziness. No child left behind, everyone gets a gold star for participation. This isn't like real life where people have varying leg ups in life. There's ways to be nice without this food store thing.

I don't feel the least bit bad about leaving a pile of pixels to go to waste on the ground personally. The "animals" spawned from nothing a few seconds before I got there, its not like they've been nutured for years before I came along. Also I wouldn't really want some carcass that somebody already cherry picked the good bits from, even for free.

In all seriousness though I get where OP is coming from with the suggestion, I just really don't think it has a place in this game.

Not all of us are good people. And I have no issue with that. If you are in my posse I will gladly help you out. But to help randoms? Hell to the nah. Does that make me cold or callus? Maybe....but again it is just a game not volunteering at the local Soup Kitchen.

I ask again how are you suppose to deliver unwanted carcasses when you dont have any room on your horse ? Problem solved aka this wont work and rockstar would never allow a method of helping others getting easy money, everything seems to point the other way.

Option 2, steal a wagon and load it up

Option 3, my favorite, pile them up and throw a molotow 

And dont forget its still a game and may not reflect how you live your real life 100% like me, im usually a Nice guy who doesnt kill cops or birds

Well that was quite a read, so thanks for that.

Let's see.

First, no I am not trying to create problems for myself or complain at all, lol.

I enjoy the game very much and feel it is very detailed, so I like to think of ways to add to that experience,.

To me it is all part of living in this era in this place with these people.,

Sure they are make believe, this is all a game, I know that, but I am playing it to escape for a while to experience life as an outlaw in 1899 or thereabouts, so why not enjoy it and try to help others?


I do believe in helping others, especially new players.

Think about this, if every new player that came along at this point saw the problems with this game and decided to bail how that would effect us all, the game needs players, all players of all types, so if you dont agree on something or find it useful, that is ok, just move on, you are allowed to skip a post, and if you disagree, you can express that but remember it is not my opinion vs yours here, it is an idea, lets let those who like the idea cultivate it, they arent hunting anyone.

 

I appreciate your concern for my ability to enjoy the game, but I want to enjoy it my own way, just like you, and just like every other person, I would never stand in the way of another person enjoying this game.

Not every idea is a good idea, but not discussing it, is a bad idea, from these discussions come many great things, so, if you dont like me or my posts, that is your right and I dont mind at all.

We dont have to agree or disagree, there is no right or wrong here, only discuss.

Whether you get my idea or think it is stupid its all good.

 

The food share has its place and merit, your play through may be diferent than mine, but I really enjoy elevating people, helping them out, surprising them with kindness.

Everytime I have 6 gators at my feet and I see a blue dot, I always let them know, they are welcome to come by and grab one on their way to wherever they are going.

I know it is pixels on the ground not real, but it is a game, it feels real at times and so I want to play it like it were real, if that bothers you, I dunno what to tell ya, we disagree about the game, lol so what?
You do you, Ill do me, we will both be fine.

 

Im glad to see so much discussion, while we wait for things to improve.

you never know what might come of it, but there are no bad ideas or thoughts, as long as hey remain ideas and thoughts to discuss.

It isnt about  feeling bad for the imaginary animals,it is the experience of feeling like, wasting perfectly good animal carcasses just doesnt sit well with me, and I want to be more conservative and less wasteful.

In a world where earning 100$ takes a while, free carcasses you can sell for a few bucks makes perfect sense.

If I looked at this game as some do, feelingless pixels I wouldnt be so passionate about the game, Rockstar created an incredible world for us to enjoy, we have an obligation to do our part to imagine the rest and feel apart of the time period, otherwise why bother with all the details and awesome graphics?

May as well play a mmorpg on your phone.

( I have no idea what an mmorpg is)


sure you can chose to reduce it to its dumbest common denominator and see it only as a shooter, and hey there are game modes within this game that allow you to do just that, and those are really fun, and thats fine, but I see it differently, and I am not alone, so why not take my advice and live and let live, if you disagree, thats fine with me, but why tell me about it?

In Free Roam it isnt like any other game, maybe the GTA series since it is the same company I suppose, but this is the evolution of these games in this genre, so some people migth not get he idea of playing the game like we are really living in this map, I try to do just that, and sometimes things like wasting money pop up and I have a thought, lol that is why we have forums, to talk about these things.


I dont care that you disagree, lol just go back to the game and skip my post, better yet block me if you dont like my content, it is your choice, I am talking to like minded folks who also have god ideas and we enjoy the idea of "what could be" or "why is it like that" sometimes and i is nice to pay devils advocate sometimes and discuss said things.

After all it iis a role playing fantasy game with incredible graphics and amazing details, it makes me think about living in the time, and if I did you can bet your butt I wouldn't leave dead animal carcasses everywhere feeding the vultures and worms, I would probably use a cart, lol but since that is a tough thing to repeatedly do in RDR2O the next best thing is to share the animals with other players who I see out hunting near me, and guess what? they like it too and have taken the carcasses so..... it works.

I would like to run a shop to sell those bits you can sell to a Butcher, but for some reason are unable to repurchase.
Come one, come all! To my amazing Animal Fat Warehouse! Due to an error in shipping we are overstocked on Animal Fat and must move this product before it all melts away!!!

The fun to be had.....All I need is a wacky, wavy, inflatable, flailing arms tube-man to attract possible customers, or victims.

But it promotes laziness. That is the issue. Hunting is not hard at all. If people don't want to hunt or whatever, I have no issue with the butcher selling pork , venison, beef, big game meat at a premium. Free handouts isn't needed. Sorry. You want food, you hunt or buy it. RDR2 welfare isn't needed. Mine as well completely cut the balls off the game if nonsense like that is implemented.

If you're so bad at the game that you need handouts, then idk what to tell you. It's a nice gesture but not needed. You can just as easily kill something and give it to someone.

Also also, to the one wanting to open up a shop to sell animal parts. Why? When it's cheaper to hunt the animal yourself. What do we need parts for, right now? Even single player the stuff that the trapper was asking for wasn't difficult to get.

Exactly. I have friends that mainly play Showdown series. They buy 90% of their food from the General Store because they don't feel like or want to hunt. I personal think it is a waste of money but more power to them. They only hunt animals that have fat for explosive rounds. 

You either buy your food or hunt it. When I first started out at Level 4, I went up to where Mama Watson was and lasso than kill elk all day. EASY.
