  1. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and feedback! Some of your suggestions are things we're discussion/working on, or that have been mentioned in the past by the community. I can't go into detail on everything just now, but I can share some information on a few of those topics: We've definitely had a long-standing discussion or two here in the forums revolving around hibernation, which is a broader topic that usually encompasses the starvation mechanic you've mentioned. While we feel calorie consumption is fairly well balanced at the moment, the overall hibernation exploit is certainly something we're looking at more closely. More on that (and diseases) in the future. Seasons have actually been a part of our long-term plan since the Kickstarter phase, so good news there! Depending on the reception of season one of the game (which is clearly 'Winter'), we'd love to continue to build The Long Dark into additional seasons. In terms of storytelling, each additional season would be a standalone sequel (think of the Telltale game model). Environmentally, each season would be a new time of year (spring, summer, fall) with its own set of challenges. We've discussed - and continue to discuss - shelter building quite a bit. For now, you have a large amount of fully constructed shelters available on most of the maps, and those certainly offer more comforts and security than anything you could build yourself in a short amount of time. It could be useful in the future, but for now, there are other mechanics being worked on that we feel will add more meaning to your experience. It's definitely been noted that a few players have discussed this feature, so we won't forget the request! Cannibalism is one feature we have no plans to add to the game. There are more differences in Stalker than just the wolf population. I'll leave it up to you to determine those, or for other community members to share their feedback if they choose to do so. =) I'd say Timberwolf Mountain is the closest thing we have to a "nature map" at the moment, with very limited options for man-made shelters. Have you made it there yet? For the transition zones, I'm not exactly sure what you mean. Each transition zone we currently have is technically a smaller map (as you mentioned), and each certainly has a decent amount of unique terrain to explore. Lastly, I see you're fairly new to the forums. Welcome, and thanks for joining us!
  2. We haven't made any announcements just yet, but we'll have some information to share soon. Stay tuned!
  3. That's amazing to hear! Your dedication is greatly appreciated. A big thank you to everyone else as well for your kind words, support and feedback. We're really looking forward to continuing this journey with you all.
  4. Thanks for the request. We're certainly planning on sharing new updates as stickied announcements in the future. For now, our most recent version is v.302 (Hotfix).
  5. Beautiful! We were very excited to share this with the rest of the community.
  6. Agreed! Thanks so much for sharing. Hope to read more from you in the future!
  7. Interesting suggestion! Thanks for sharing and welcome to the forums

    It appears the warning posted didn't serve its full purpose, as I've removed no fewer than half a dozen posts in its wake. This thread is now locked. Attempts to reignite the arguments being carried in this discussion will result in formal warnings. Thank you to everyone that was able to remain calm and respectful during this discussion.
  9. Hey there! Thanks for taking the time to formally introduce yourself. I've definitely seen you around, but didn't know you were a southerner like me. I was born and raised in North Carolina, so I definitely understand the summertime struggles. The weather up here in Canada is much more to my liking!
  10. Thanks for the suggestion!

    There are a lot of interesting opinions and ideas in this thread, and it's always great to get detailed feedback and thoughts from our players. That being said, I'd ask that everyone remember to stay on-topic and avoid aggressive discussion and politically charged commentary. Please remember why we're all here -- To discuss a video game -- and try to return a respectful and calm tone to this thread.
  12. @June That screenshot of the Trapper's cabin is great! Really love it.
  13. Thanks very much for sharing the details of your experience. Great to hear you're enjoying sandbox, and always nice to hear stories from our newer players. I had to google inuit sunglasses -- Interesting! I appreciate the desire for a map. We typically express that learning the lay of the land is part of the experience, but I like the idea that the discovery of a map for you is a self-imposed role playing experience. I find myself getting lost in similar experiences when I play The Long Dark and Skyrim in particular. Great TL;DR as well
  14. Very nice video, @GELtaz. Always enjoy your intros, and this one was particularly lovely.
  15. Hey there! This might be the first time I've seen mention of father and son both being forum participants. Great to have you both with us, and always wonderful to hear about families enjoying The Long Dark together. Welcome!
