      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. My only thing here is that I don't think the brick bark as fuel thing is very important, at least at the moment. Your time and degrees estimate look good, but you would need a s$@tload of birch bark to get even s halfway decent fire going, and it's a pain in the butt to have to pick that all up. It just doesnt seem like much of a priority right now.
  2. Keep in mind that 1.0 is technically released on Aug 1 if I read my sources correctly. The next update will be called something elise that I won't speak of for sake of spoilers.
  3. That's more Southwestern American like Tennessee. I.E. Daniel Boone/ Davy Crockett
  4. I agree. I'm a Steam user, but recently my save files corrupted, and I lost my longest playthrough AND all my earned badges as well as any badge progress I had going. I hope this new save system fixes that.
  5. Anyone think Hello Neighbor when they see Will in the trailer? Just me?
  6. May I just say this is getting a little out of hand, especially on @Dirmagnos's part.
  7. @Boston123 To be fair, I'm not the oldest one here. (For anyone wondering, I'm 16.) But then again, the older you get, the sadder your life is if it is based around video games and it's not a career, such as a game developer. Kudos to you for your exceptional knowledge of the human mind. I hope to obtain such knowledge in my life. Cheers.
  8. I think trading would make it far too Minecraft-y. It needs to be more of a societal thing. @EricTheGreat12 had the idea I was thinking of. In a real life survival situation, you wouldn't trade so much as share or steal.
  9. Anyone see the new steam announcement? It's going on it's last Early Access sale, and in-game it says Story Mode is not availabe in Alpha... They also can't wait to share what's coming next.... Thoughts?
  10. Welcome to the forums @smilingDONKforU
  11. I see your point. Cheers!
  12. This should probably be merged with POLL OF AGES!!! because it is fairly alike in nature. ( @cekivi or @Scyzara) Good post, just probably don't need two on the same subject as of now, if you get my point .
  13. Very true. I don't want to leap back into the circle but it just seems that Hinterland would be absolutely slaughtered if this countdown were for anything but story mode. My only speculation on the announcement is that it says 'more info will be provided on that update' and not this update. I am anxious, and I would be mad, but I guess I'd just have to move on. I think the letdown would be enough to make me walk away forever, and so, out of sight, out of mind.
  14. It's been done in real life, but maybe the risk would be luring in dangerous wildlife that may have a craving for stuffed moose.
  15. I would especially love to see cardinals, even if all you see is a little blotch of red dart across your screen. It would probably bring tears to my eyes. I already love the depressing loon call in desolation point, it's very chilling but I love it. Cougars would force you away from rock walls, as they could pounce and cause a different sort of fight scenario. You can trap birds, but not with a snare like what's in the game. Birds would probably only be shot as a last resort, we mainly just need to see more wildlife, make the world really come alive. Too much would overdo it, but I want to see a little more than just wolves, bears, deer, and rabbits.
