  1. Thanks guys, I'll do some digging. Here's the specs on my current computer: AMD A6-3600 APU with Radeon HD Graphics 2.10 GHz, 6 GB of RAM, and running windows 10 with a 64bit operating system. Sam
  2. If you want a story mode prediction, I can do better than that, I can make an absolute 100% GAURANTEE that there will be snow in it. (Just had to lighten this thread up a bit...) Sam
  3. I suspect she may not make it to day 12 if she leaves that lantern on top the stove there! Sam
  4. Greetings from a fellow Washingtonian! Sam
  5. My current computer has been a good unit, but it struggles to run the game on the Low graphics setting. I'd like to bump that up to High, but I don't know anything about spec'ing a computer. What's the specs I'd need to run the game on each quality setting? Processor, video card, ram, etc. And just to make this more interesting, I'm going to need my next computer to be a laptop. Any recommendations? oh and just to make this more interesting, I don't have a lot of money to spend; I've been setting up a small cabin and putting a new-to-me engine into one of my two old fords. Sam
  6. That car in the ravine is a "crummy", a small vehicle designed to move logging crews too and from their camp. The one in the game is actually a faithful reproduction of a real one that CANFOR built in their shops in the 40's. They did get used as a switch engine occasionally, but only with a couple cars at a time. I'd love to see a proper locomotive in the game, and some more sidings, a couple passing tracks, generally a more realistic rail line. Here's a bit of info on the rail line the crummy come from: http://forums.railfan.net/forums.cgi?action=display;board=Vancouver;num=1081205768;start=40 Sam
  7. This first shot is from deer clearing, I walked out, he ran in, bang! Breakfast delivered! Sam
  8. Yup, works pretty well especially if they die on a slope to steep to start a fire on! Sam
  9. Oh deer... Sam
  10. Thanks! Oh yeah, cutting torch gives you 110% chance of starting a fire! Fun fact: When cutting steel with a torch, the steel gets superheated and then oxidized, in other words it gets burnt! That tripped me out when i first learned that. There are stories about that truck for sure, it was grandfather's mountain beater for a lot of years . My favorite story is from one of the last times he used it, him and a buddy were way up on some lonely old logging road miles from anywhere, it got dark, they decided to just park and camp for the night. They rolled out their bivy sacks in front of the truck and fell asleep. One thing about old rigs is the electrical system can sometimes be a bit wacky, this rig especially... And at some wee hour of the morning the truck's horn randomly went off! Grandpa's first though was that they had parked on the RR tracks and were a bout to get run over by a train; needless to say both of them set records for the 3 yard bivy sack lunge! About 7 years ago when I started reviving the truck I also experienced the random honking horn, I hit a speed bump and that triggered it. The culprit all along was the horn relay, I replaced it but I've still got the original one hanging around here somewhere as a momento. @cekivi Where do you ice fish? Looks like a nice spot Sam
  11. x2, it's perfect! Sam
  12. Very well done! I like it, like everyone said it captures the feeling of the game very nicely. Keep it coming, perhaps it can start a whole new genre of music... Sam
  13. Thanks for the support guys! I think this has gotten more attention than anything else I've ever suggested Sam
  14. Thanks, yeah it's unique for sure, it's been in the family for quite a while too. That truck has been up and down most of the logging roads in western washington state! The torch isn't nearly as close to the fire as it looks in the pic, but yeah it's not pretty when those go boom! Sam
  15. If your playing TLD, chances are you like being in the great outdoors. Post your pics here! This is from a trip early last year up in the north cascades, and that cutting torch is the back is the best fire starting tool know to Sam! Sam
