      The Long Dark Sandbox **May 2017 Test Branch** [OPT-IN, FORUM PASSWORD, SPOILERS]   05/19/2017

      Hello community, 

      As we did with the December 2016 Sandbox Update, we are implementing a TEST BRANCH for The Long Dark's MAY/JUNE 2017 Update, FAITHFUL CARTOGRAPHER. This reflects the fact that we have a huge diversity of players on a variety of hardware configurations, and as a small studio we just can’t test them all! 

      The idea here is to provide an early version of the next update, about a week or so before we’d like to launch it officially in the Release branch (i.e. where you are currently getting it), so that we get some extra time to find bugs, crashes, and any other issues before it goes lives for the rest of our community. 
        >>> IF YOU DO NOT OPT-IN TO THE TEST BRANCH, YOU WILL NOT GET IT. I.e. You will not get the Test Branch build "by accident". This should help keep spoilers to a minimum. Here on Official Forums the Test Branch Discussion subforum requires a password to access. The password is: test_branch
      Some details. READ THESE CAREFULLY: 

      * The Test Branch is for STEAM ONLY. It is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. 
      * The Test Branch is full of SPOILERS. If you don’t want to see what’s in the next update, stay out of the Test Branch and all its discussions. 
      * The Test Branch is a tool for us to find issues with Work In Progress features. We’re primarily looking for feedback on bugs, crashes, and any major balancing issues. 
      * When reporting on bugs or issues, please use the appropriate TEST BRANCH sub-forums on Steam and in our Official Community. DO NOT DISCUSS TEST BRANCH FEATURES outside the Test Branch sub-forums. Those posts will be moved or deleted. 
      * When reporting on bugs or issues, please use the posted bug submission procedures. This will help the development team filter the feedback, eliminate duplicates, and in general ensure we can act on the feedback in a more timely fashion. 

      Our hope is that this new Test Branch process will allow us to ensure we can continue to put out stable Sandbox updates well into the future. 

      We’re very hopeful that the people who choose to opt-in to this Test Branch will approach this as a way to help ensure the updates are as smooth and stable as possible, and not use the Test Branch discussion as a forum to lobby for or against certain features or content. 

      As always, The Long Dark is a community-informed, not community-driven, project. We look forward to enlisting your help in identifying whatever issues we’ve missed in our own internal testing! 

      For more details, please check out the TEST BRANCH discussion forums [SPOILERS!] http://hinterlandforums.com/index.php?/forum/81-test-branch-spoilers/ (See password info above for access)

      Thank you! 

      The Hinterland Team

  6. Please don't discuss test branch content any longer outside the respective forums. The Test branch forums are now open (password test_branch) and you can post all your feedback there. http://www.hinterlandforums.com/index.php?/forum/81-test-branch-discussion-spoilers/ I'm closing this thread now, hope that's okay for you.

  9. Hm, that's a hell of a decision. Probably the whole Witcher series (especially W3: Blood& Wine), but it's an extremely close call with Dragon Age: Origins and Skyrim.
  10. During late stages of parasite infection on Interloper you're permanently exhausted and your health bar is capped at a maximum of about 60% or so. But that's rather an extraordinary event, of course. Happened to me only three times so far if I remember correctly.^^ Most often, I'm simply getting exhausted because I'm wandering around too much on TWM (my favorite late-game map). Rope-Climbing drains your fatigue bar pretty fast there if you don't pay attention. Add late-game Interloper temperatures (and a bit of recklessness/stubbornness from my part) and your character may drop below 50% health every now and then. ^^ Which in itself is no problem of course, but if you then additionally screw up and have your character noticed by a wolf... well, let's just say this is the point of time when you'll know the perfect moment for a stim has just arrived. But hey, that's what stims are for. Dying with five of them in your inventory is pretty pointless. And I don't remember I ever ran out of stims during any of my games.^^
  11. I'd love to find some TLD-specific Easter eggs. We should e.g. definitely have a detailled map on some wall with @whiteberry-toarda's signature on it. ;p
  12. Pretty much the only situation when I would ever use a stim for climbing is if I were trapped at the bottom of the Ravine without a bedroll. Or maybe if I were exhausted and standing below a rope while a bear just started to charge towards me. ;p As multiple others already mentioned, using a stim for climbing is a total waste of resources in almost all other cases. My best suggestions for stims is also not to use them AFTER a wolf-fight (when you're already at low condition), but rather beforehand. Stims are incredibly useful to outrun wildlife in potentially lethal situations (e.g. if a wolf notices you accidentally while you're exhausted and below 50% condition) because flares, torches and decoys are very likely to fail under these circumstances. I'm using at least 80% of my stims that way.
  13. Do you remember the name of said book? Was it different from the normal rifle book titles? I for one never found any book that took more than 10 h to research, the vast majority only takes five. Maybe those 25h books don't exist on Interloper, but it's still odd somehow.
  14. I think it would also be extremely neat to do some spring cleaning here on the forums in general. (Removing old announcements & news from the top of the thread-list by making them non-sticky). I'd appreciate that a lot for multiple subforums. Please let us know if we community mods could somehow help you in that regard, Patrick.
  15. I actually like both HL logos. The old one is beautiful due to its numerous details, but I always found the fox's facial expression was somehow a bit sad. The new logo is much less detailed, but it somehow looks more 'active' to me. (Which is probably beneficial if you want it to represent your company). Long story short: I don't mind the change at all.
