      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. Just to be 100% sure: If you get an infection from a wolf bite and don't get anti-biotics in time, it will, for certain KILL you, right?

  3. I noticed upon loading my game after 6(?) months of not playing that a LOT of the climbing ropes are missing on Timberwolf Mountain. I know because I specifically relocated some to make a more direct route to the summit that would allow to go up and down in one day and avoid a lot of the wildlife. Were the ropes removed in a patch or something?

  5. I have an issue with one of my saves that my cold / warmth bar stays red. I have screenshots as proof. But its only one save. How do i report this issue. The bug reporting i found is grayed out and i cant click on it. I have had several saves at this point and never had this issue on any others. I was skinning a deer when the bar went red. Ran immediately to the Rangers Cabin in Mystery Lake. jumped into sleeping bag to warm up. The bar stayed red. Suggestions? Thank You in advance.

  7. Hello, since the whetstone and the rifle cleaning kit came I have been curious to know when you can use your quality or standard tool kits. Is their something I am missing?

  10. Loving the skill books... I wait until the blizzard hits, then i settle in with a roaring fire, a pot of coffee and I hunker down and read... This play through, I am trying to be as thorough as possible exploring and looting each map, harvesting every last resource possible and consolidating camp before moving to the next map. So that got me to wondering about the spawn mechanics of skill books and these following questions: Do the same number of books spawn on each map? or, How many books spawn per map? Are the spawn locations fixed or are they truly random? Are there any unique skill books or one of kind skill books? Which skill book is the most valuable or most difficult to find? Any feedback or other insights greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading!
  11. Would you favor the addition of various types of containers to the game? Do you feel they would enhance the game? Or contribute to unnecessary clutter/complexity? Which is more important? realism or simplicity? Finding useful containers is often an important task in TV survival scenarios just like in real life. Is this degree of survivalism important to the game? What makes this game interesting for you personally and in general for users?

  13. Hello fellow survivors, I'm returning from a hiatus and have never used emergency stims. Please tell me if these are useful for rope climbing or not, and the *negative* consequences of use. I am preparing to return to Timberwolf Mountain to look for the "lost book of 25 hours research" and only can allow for another 1/5 kilogram of equipment and need to know if those stims will make my trip SUBSTANTIALLY easier...or not. I am resuming my hiatus from an 'alive 313 days' place so ...I don't want to screw up. Thanks for any who can give solid, honest guidance!
  14. GELtaz has gone from zero to almost 5000 subscribers in just two years largely because of the fans supporting his Long Dark game play videos. He needs just 28 more subscribers to reach this magic goal of 5k subs. This is a poll to determine how many people subscribe to GELtaz. It's also a little bit of fun and games.
  15. Every time that I exceed 55 kilo, my indoor walking speed is reduced to inches per minute as compared to the same weight when walking outdoors. When I'm outside and my carry weight nears 55 kilo's, for example while gathering wood, after I pick up a stick, I might start off slow but after I hit crouch and then pop back up, I am able to walk at a near normal pace. Once walking as long as I don't pick anything else up or stop for what ever reason, I am able to continue forward at a deliberate pace. But as soon as I enter an interior cell, my walking speed drops to a snails pace. Once inside, the drop to crouch and walk normal trick doesn't seem to help. Is this a new wrinkle or what? Not a deal killer, but annoying as heck! Hate having to drop stuff just to have to pick it back up as I am putting stuff in storage and/or reorganizing my base camp.
  16. I purchased TLD about a month ago, everything going fine until about two days ago when launching from steam (as I have always done in the past), TLD refuses to start. Out of nowhere, the game has suddenly decided it will no longer start. I just get "tld.exe has stopped working" and have to close it. I have tried verifying game file integrity multiple times on steam, as well as uninstalling and reinstalling it 3 times yesterday. Nothing has worked. I am on Windows 10, Lenovo Yoga 12 Laptop. Attached output log. output_log.txt
  17. question

    Do you guys think there will be bunkers in story mode
  18. Ive read in multiple locations and understand that the progress made tword and the badges earned will carry over in the sandbox to survival mode update which im excited to hear. But i do have two questions that i havent been able to find the awnser to as of yet on the website or forums. 1st will the badges earned be something you can activate or use for story mode?. 2nd will there be any other badges available or added other the what is already available to achieve?
  19. I took a 9 month break from TLD and returned a week ago. Three things different now I am very curious about. I noticed that, thankfully, Hinterland fixed the fire brand's super loud sound effects glitch that occurred when "chain lighting" fires with the brand and then taking a brand from the new fire. I was reading through past patch notes but didn't see it listed at all. Can anyone refer me to the link for the patch that fixed it? Also, in PV and TWM not all but many vegetables have regrown. Cattails, rosehips, and shrooms are once again plentiful in PV and TWM. When did that happen? Do plants periodically regrow now? On TWM there is now only one route up the mountain--the counter-clockwise route. All the other climbing ropes are just gone. When did that happen? For reference, this is all on my main Voyageur Sandbox game. Thanks to any who can share some info with me
  20. I've just been wondering, they've been on the wishlist forever, why aren't they in the game yet? I am not trying to sound unappreciative, I am just curious.
  21. So first of all please please please just tell me if this isn't allowed - but inspired by The Long Dark I've been working on a forum based play by post roleplaying game. The aim is to make it every bit as brutal as the game can be, but to allow for more stories to be told. I'm working on adding in further skills and obviously the style of play will be slightly different to the game. But either way - the link is here: http://wearehuman.boards.net/ And I'd love some feedback at least, or if people are interested.
  22. I like the idea of two models of newsprint, it's really cool. But I don't understand why there's two "items" in inventory. Why we can't have newsprints and roll ones as one item?
  23. So here it is folks, TLD will get it´s long awaited final update. When i heard that the old saves would render useless at the end of may (or beginning of June - well, better not make a fixed date here, lol) when the final sandbox update hits, I was kindof sad, because i´ve grown fond of my Interloper-Astrid who made it to day 163. Just now I killed my third bear and could live on forever (well you never know on Interloper). There´s just one question remaining: the save will get useless, so I have to find a good end of the sandbox. Keeping it is pretty useless. Jumping off the Ravine seems also not the right thing to do. I need a challenge! A hard challenge I may not survive. Something to get the good old TLD beat going. I have the feeling I´ve beaten Interloper´s grim intentions to killing me quickly (or at least got myself a convinient place and living with abundant ressources and my loyal magnifying glass). So what could my Astrid do to end in a glorious dramatic dark fashion that would be fitting? And how will you end your sandoxes? ;P
  24. I know there have been discussions about having precise measures available to the player (ex. When we used to have an exact time of day in the tab menu) but I was wondering if quoted time estimates are accurate or have a fudge factor. I've noted that sleeping with a fire going, you have varying amounts of fire time remaining when waking up. Someone on the steam forums claimed variance in water boiling/snow melting times. I know I've naturally shied away from relying on timers to the minute, but does anyone know the details about how this all works?
  25. Hi all! I left off playing for a while and since I just returned I notice there are now Feats in the game. I loaded my game (alive 290 days) and see that I have no progress towards any feats. Does the 290 days of progress played prior implementation of Feats not count?
