      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

  4. Agreed, I want to say there is a photo of an actual wood carving hinterland had done on their website some where I don't dislike the new logo, I just liked the old one more. Sam
  5. Tried to use my rifle and steal a fish from a deer last night, he sockeye'd it to me and it was a bore having no bullets in the bore, didn't get any bang for my buck. Sam
  6. The countdown has been a reminder that good things come to those who wait. @UpUrBeaver I like your temper tantrum kid's analogy, it describes the internet pretty well! If this is all you live for, you may have issues. Lol! As much as I love this game there are other things in life Phew, that's enough "Reflective Rusty" for one day Sam
  7. I've seen a few smokers made from old refrigerators, mostly 50's era stuff. The favorite redneck method seems to be to lay it face up and bash a bunch of holes in the door with a pickaxe. Sam
  8. I have completely fallen in love with this song, I do love a song with well done harmonies Sam
  9. Welcome back, these are exciting times indeed! Sam
  10. The before and after shots of the farmhouse kitchen? Makes me wonder, is that story going to get told in wintermute? That will be a tear jerker for sure Sam
  11. 10-4 on that, haha! Really looking forward to the human element in Wintermute, it is something the sandbox really doesn't have much of. Sam
  12. I'm glad Wintermute wasn't released today. It allowed me to actually get some things done, haha! "And on that bombshell, time to end, thanks for watching" The mood has been rather "tense" and things needed a little lightening up... I was a bit disappointed at first, but then I watched the video and read Raphael's message, and now I am positively giddy! This is going to be goood. And I can't wait to "meet" the blind guy in the rocking chair with the rifle, he has got to be quite the character! One more thing, the song you guys used in the video is perfect. Agnes has a very nice voice and the tone of the song fit very nicely Sam
  13. I nominate my great uncle Brix Crabtree, longtime alaskan, hunter trapper and craftsman. He ran a trapline till the year he died, and even in his 80's, when I met him, he was a giant of a man and still strong as an ox. I remember him looking at me and saying "We've got wolves that would carry you off whole! Heh heh!" Sam
  14. @Salty Crackers the one in ML? The corpse that spawns in the log sort trailer is pretty creepy Sam
  15. I went ahead and bought a Geforce GT730 and MAN! What a difference! Thank you, you saved me quite a bit of money. I would love to have a laptop, but this is what fits the budget at the moment. I now consider myself fully prepared for whatever update hits when the timer reaches zero! Sam
