    You know I had a suspicion that this was the case, the fact that my clothes etc were generally the same led me to be identified easier over time. It's a great detail to the game and as with many aspects of RDR2, rather realistic. I'm going to have to change my outfit and see how I fare in some crimes.

    This is one of the most frustrating things about RDR2. This system is deep and they did a piss poor job of explaining it in game. Among the hours and hours of dialogue and cutscenes, how hard would it have been for a five second segment where Dutch explains the importance of changing your clothes, horse and look to avoid detection when committing a crime in an area where everybody knows you? :runaway:

    I found the easiest way of looting someone and avoiding witnesses (to a crime) was simply to hogtie the person(s) that I was robbing, bringing them to a secluded area or empty house/shack and completing the crime (this also includes killing persons of interest or revenge). Witnesses will simply mind their business... likely believing you're a bounty hunter.

    Dsoup thanks for that! That's some crazy details I had no idea about. I never change my outfit, horse or my hair. Didn't see the point. Now I do. Guess I will also be more mindful of the bodies & passerbys. Again thanks for the tips.

    Wait, what? The guide has flowcharts explaining this sort of detail? Is it also in the paper version do you know? Might be work picking up.

    I don't know. If you're able to look at the paper version before you buy, check out pages 19-20 (criminal activities, the honour system, witnesses and an overview of the wanted system) and pages 175-177 (law enforcement, the wanted system, reinforcements 'the wanted loop' flowchart, additional crime systems, wanted levels and lockdown, crime severity and death and financial penalties).

    This is basically five pages of explanation of the mechanics of crime. The free companion includes a more detailed game manual than is present in game, which also hints at some of this stuff.

    Lost my Red Dead save :( had a power outage and corrupted the PS4 firmware, had to format. And no I didn't have plus save back-up enabled. I'm in a dark place right now. :(

    :( That sucks! I realized when getting my PS4P that cloud features weren't available unless I paid for plus, which is terrible. I already pay for too many online services. I assume I can backup saves to a USB drive?

    Sorry to hear that Xbat. :sad:

    May I suggest using an APC UPS (surge protection is usually inclusive) or another UPS manufacture, on making sure this never happens again during these type of disruptions. There are some very compact and affordable models on doing so. All my gaming equipment, PCs, network equipment, TVs, and other electronic devices are all protected and powered when needed by UPSs. Just a great investment to have...

    Do the masks provide any extra benefit over the bandana or the hood or are they all just for appearances sake? I murdered a bunch of people in a cabin because one of them was abusing their pig, but put on a jason mask before I did it. Bounty hunters showed up and said that mask won't fool us. After I murdered them, I still had a bounty on me... so, not sure the point.

    The masks are not mentioned at all.

    The other day I was like, "I don't remember so many trees being cut down within this area." Now I see why... :shocked:

    Didn't realize those progressions were so numerous and pervasive. Great stuff.

    I never noticed any of the building progress but I did spot the railroad. I stumbled on the end of the a railway line while chasing some treasure from a map and there were a lot of Chinese workers laying track. My girlfriend wanted to see this so I went back to the same spot, which was several days in-game time later, and they had laid quite a lot more track.

    I believe there are two or more railway construction jobs going on. The first one that I stumbled upon was dealing with the "foreman spy" side mission, and another dealing with track laying issues. Fun times...

    I finally finished it. Good game, it grew on me as the story progressed. The controls were always a mess and often frustrating, but the world, characters and story make you look past it. I'd give it a 9/10. I was really surprised at how much further they took it beyond where I thought it would end. I loved the credits and music too. I'm a bit burned out so I will play something else for a while and come back for the post game world later.

    For my top games this year I'd put it above Spider-Man and below GoW.
