  1. Oh no! Thanks for the update, @jansh. We're glad The Long Dark doesn't seem to be causing this issue, but that's no fun to deal with. Hope your laptop is back in gaming shape soon!
  2. Welcome to The Long Dark forums, glad you feel welcome! We do indeed keep a close watch on player comments. The thoughtful and constructive feedback we see from our community is hugely helpful and allows us to make better informed design decisions.
  3. Ah, Jasper! That's a very beautiful National Park here in Canada. It's right in the Rocky Mountains has a ton of really spectacular wilderness.
  4. Welcome to the forums, @sv_1994! Thanks for sharing your feedback about the interior lighting, this is something we are continuing to tune. If you notice any issues with the game that appear to be a bug, you can also report them directly to our Public Bug Database.
  5. Hello Community! This Saturday is our nation's 150th birthday and we wanted to invite you to share your most "Canadian" fan creations with us. Feel free to interpret the theme as narrowly or as broadly as you like! We'd love to see any art, photos, screenshots, videos or other work that our creative and resourceful survivors come up with. If you have Canada Day plans, whether that's hiking in the wilderness, throwing a BBQ, or just kicking back with The Long Dark and a bowl of poutine-flavoured chips, post a picture and we'll share our favourites on social media!
  6. Thanks for the heads-up about JIRA, @L², we'll take a look at the back end. If anyone ever finds themselves suddenly unable to submit a bug, you can also use our support email: Support@HinterlandGames.com . About the missing arrows, there's no mechanic in place that causes them to go missing by design. We think the arrow may be bouncing strangely and landing somewhere difficult to see, but it's something we're looking into. Thanks for the feedback!
  7. A beautiful photo! Where was it taken?
  8. We do! However our Russian is not very good -- sorry. We are practiced at using translation applications. If you have ideas on how we make make these forums better for players who speak lanugages other than English, please let us know!
  9. Nice work, @RossBondReturns. Impressive detail -- it must have taken you and your team a while to construct!
  10. Let's keep it friendly, people! It's completely possible to disagree without making negative personal comments.
  11. Nice -- the crumpled paper really works as a setting in this image. You guys going to team up and do the Hydro Dam next?
  12. Wow, nice writing @Caffeinequeen -- that's a review to raise your heart rate!
  13. It's not so much that the team thinks cannibalism is impossible or can't have a place in a survival game, however we're focused on crafting a specific kind of emotional experience and feel to the world. To this end, we've made a lot of careful decisions about what to include in the game, and what not to. There have been similar discussions on the forums around suggestions such as adding defecation/urination to the game. This is another example of something that would could add realism, and might be an interesting mechanic for a survival game, but doesn't quite fit with kind of experience we are going for with The Long Dark.
  14. We've mentioned this before, but just in case anyone missed it in previous discussions: we're not planning on adding cannibalism or other similar mechanics to The Long Dark. It doesn't really fit the type of experience we're going for with this game.
  15. I found this acrylic speed painting tutorial and thought I'd share. It's fun to watch the image emerge and the theme seemed rather on-point.
