      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!

Possible Bug: Frostbite triggered with no frostbite warning preceding affliction and Frozen clothing status not visible outside of paperdoll clothing menu!

7 posts in this topic

Xbox One Sandbox Alpha v. 394

Game Difficulty: Voyager

Location: Timberwolf Mountain

What happened: Got stuck in a blizzard whilst harvesting carcasses in the debris area  nearest the Mountaineer's hut and Bear's cave. I (as the female survivor) was able to gather enough sticks to make a snow shelter and warm up. However, during the night, I gained the affliction of frostbite on my hands without having any preceding frostbite warning and I had only been sleeping for 1-2 hours at a time with no significant temperature decreases. Upon looking at the clothing menu, I saw that multiple items of clothing were frozen. This frozen status was only visible in the menu allowing one to choose what parts of the body clothing covers

Now I have a permanent 10 percent reduction in health that could have been avoided if proper warnings had been in place so that I might have had the opportunity to avoid frostbite.

Please help?!

Did you have any indication in the clothing screen? The icons for each body part shows your frostbite risk percentage

To be honest I was so preoccupied with trying to wait out the storm that I didn't even look at that screen until after the fact, but there was no frostbite warning in the status bar, so as far as I was concerned there was no reason to check seeing as the survivor was well above freezing once inside the snow shelter.

I will pass the issue on to the team - but for you're own reference you can check the risk of each body part via the clothing screen, as well as view how wet/frozen your clothing is. It's also possible that frostbite set in extremely fast due to wet/frozen clothing, but the feedback is very helpful.

Same thing happened to me.  I was in Forlorn Muskeg, trying to chop up that blasted crate that covers the safe.  It seemed to glitch; like I was just chopping & chopping; not getting anywhere.  I thought the game was stuck so I hit B to cancel (this was on xbox).  Then it said I had frostbite on my one foot.  I checked the clothing menu and it said that both socks and the boots were completely frozen.  I still had a "feels like" temp of 53°.  None of my clothes were wet when I went into that barn/shed, and there was no way for them to get wet while in there.

Yeah, there shouldn't be any way that frostbite happens THAT dang fast without warning. Because the game doesn't pause when looking in the inventory, going into it all the time to check could mean death.

That's the way the game is designed.. some kind of on-screen or verbal message indicating when an item reaches (say) 60% wet, would be very helpful.
