      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

  1. @Wasteland WatcherWarmth is the same, rabbit skin is a skosh more waterproof (50% vs. 40%), gauntlets are a skosh more protective (6% vs. 5%), guantlets slow you down a little less (-3% v. -5%). Rabbit skins require rabbits skins to repair, gauntlets require cured leather. What I don't have stats for is how quickly they degrade. I swear the gauntlets last longer. Also, when you repair the gauntlets, there's a bigger repair percentage (65% condition vs. 30% condition)

  4. What you're wearing can make a huge difference as well. But generally I find the wolves are tougher. I don't sweat one attack unless its interloper, or I'm down condition (which is a given on interloper ) I'm over the moon if I find gauntlets. Combine that with wolf coat, combat boots and work pants and I laugh, laugh I say at wolves. Unless we're on Interloper, then its run screaming from the wolves.
  5. @Wasteland WatcherThat survivor was on stalker, I haven't gotten to the point where I'm ever warm enough to do something that crazy in interloper. Alas Pumpkin Pie forgot that wolves will charge without warning when defending a kill and can evidently see through hills. She died while waiting for a bear to bleed out from a flare. A wolf took down a rabbit on the other side of a hill and then charged over the hill and jumped her. As her condition was a wee bit reduced at that the start of the fight it was good night Pumpkin Pie (second of the name). But she did make it out of the being pinned by wolves situation alive and with only a small amount of rock scrambling and sprinting.

  10. @Wasteland WatcherI've actually taken a nap without a fire - but only where I can clearly see the critters. Its not wise, but I have done it. Last time I was stuck between wolf groups and was going to need to run to make it to safety. and the birds weren't indicating a weather shift, so I rolled the dice and snoozed. But Pumpkin Pie always did live dangerously.
