      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!

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.

There is a rumor that GELtaz has already completed the video to celebrate 5000 subscribers. I know this is true because I have inside information about this video. If you are having withdrawal symptoms for the next GELtaz video, then PLEASE! Help us find 28 measly subscribers!!

Wow! That Poll! O.o Interesting Idea there Steve.

GELtaz's channel is still shy a mere 22 subscriptions. Is everyone subbed? According to the polls, only 60% of you watch and enjoy each and every GELtaz video! We don't get that next TLD video until we do this guys. 9_9

"5000 Subscribers - That's something, really something especially when you think of the quality of the people here! I didn't think it was possible but you people push me to accomplish impossible things. Did it on the second try, this year. Thank you so much for making me dream and for being here People!" ~ @GELtaz

:) One shot killing a charging Bear with an arrow to the left eye should give you the "Just like Geltaz" achievement. I'm still happy to land an arrow somewhere ... just anywhere, on the the big black bit attached to the growling, toothy bit.

Angry snow .... not a problem .... I can kill snow like a boss, lol

Seriously though, I've picked up so much watching your videos man .... then I go try it out in-game .... and ..well ... at least I'm learning, lol

Thanks to years of YouTube I can not pay attention to someone else talking for more than 90 seconds before trying to click the skip ad arrow.  Let's play vids are just too loooooong to eva get watched.  If I had 30 spare minutes I'd just play a game. Sorry.

There are days when I can't muster the energy to do more than fix a big bowl of noodles (or curry) and sit down in front of YouTube and let it natter away. If there is a new GELtaz, I watch that. I don't care what the rest of the world is doing; this is my little retreat from insanity.

I googled for tutorials on how to hunt, found GELtaz videos, and I watch them a lot. I love GELtaz' voice, accent, video editing, very nice videos.

10/10 will recommend to all my friends.

I enjoy watching Letsplay videos as a kind of replacement drug when I cannot play myself, or when I am too lazy to play. Geltaz is amongst my #1 Youtubers because he is so genuinely friendly and positive, I mean, you can drop an atomic bomb on him and he'll still enjoy life.
