      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!

Pleasant Valley wolves around Farmhouse INVISIBLE!

5 posts in this topic

Hi all, so I recently experienced something that I thought was odd. After exiting the front door of the farmhouse on Pleasant Valley I can hear wolves howling. I thought I'd take the opportunity to take one out maybe and get some meat but I couldn't see it...I can hear it walking around (not too far away from the car that's out front, and past a little snow mound overlooking out into the forest. I looked and looked and could only hear howling and wolves prowling around in the snow but couldn't see them! I took a shot out into the direction my headset pinpointed the source of the sounds and I hear yelping and running away but couldn't see any wolves. I think there's a bug here I'm not quite sure if maybe it's supposed to spawn here and surprise me but I don't see it, and believe me I looked diligently.

Another thing in 'By design' That makes no sense. How is this by design forum mods? Want to make a 'un explained' or ' we Dun no ' thread instead?

I hear wolfs walking around the orchard's on PV and never see them. If you leave the homestead basement and go left it's in that orchard. I've tracked the footsteps with my headset and it sounds like they are right beside me, then walk past me. I've never heard a "phantom" wolf howl but I hear them walking around a lot.

I should not hear wolfs footsteps in an open field and not be able to see them.

I currently find the sounds at PV Farmstead weird - I've heard clear and distinct bear sounds, like it was right on top of me when it was actually quite a bit away - out past the car.  I've also heard the wolves as if they were right there when they were fairly far out in the field.  If you walk around near the porch not only does the wind die out but the bear can be practically on top of you and you won't hear a thing.  In fact the zone of silence near the back porch is fairly large.  You can get rid of it by opening the porch door for some reason.  All of this is why I no longer hunt the bear near the farmstead - too risky.  I'll snabble him down by the shed instead.

The bear footsteps are a little OP. Not that I mind. You can hear it from a long way.
