  1. After losing a 65 day sandbox file to a crash causing corrupted game files I decide to keep a backup of my TLD game files. Yesterday it paid off. Deep into Episode 2 of Wintermute story mode the game crashed during a transition load screen and corrupted my game file. Restarted Wintermute and my only option was 'New' meaning my game file was corrupted and I would have to start over after many hours of gameplay. Fortunately I was keeping a copy of the game files. Reloaded the files and only lost a few hours of gameplay. Very frustrating but at least I didn't have to start over. I would highly recommend PS4 users making a backup of game files. Even after update 1.08 I'm still getting occasional crashes. The interval between backups is up to you. You can do this as often as you like but you have to close the game in order to create a backup. The question becomes how much playtime are you willing to lose. Everything after your last backup will be lost. To create a backup: Go to Settings then Application Saved Data Management. Select Saved Data in System Storage. Select Copy to USB Storage Device or Upload to Online Storage. Select The Long Dark from the list. Click Select All then Copy. Check the Apply to All box and click Yes You now have a copy of your TLD game files. If you lose your game files after a crash you will only have the 'New' option after selecting 'Wintermute' or 'Survival Mode'. Basically your game file corrupted on the last crash and couldn't be loaded. To reload your game files: Go to Settings then Application Saved Data Management. Select Saved Data on USB Storage or Saved Data on Online Storage. Select Copy to System Storage. Select The Long Dark. Choose Select All then then Copy. Check the Apply to All box. Click Yes. Restart the game and you should have your 'Resume' option.
  2. The bear was stuck on the ice. I was shooting one after another and it took five arrows. Guess I could have waited for it to bleed out after two or three.
  3. I know bears can be taken down with one arrow. I've done it from the porch on PV. It was a lucky shot that stunned me to say the least. I aimed for the head and let it go. I also know it takes about five arrows if you shoot it in the side. There was one that would get stuck on the ice on DP that was an easy takedown. There was a bug once that cancelled any damage you did to bears if you shot it and immediately jumped into a cabin. Haven't kept up with changes to know if this has been corrected.
  4. The fire she is sitting beside will go from 10 min to 4 hours. It's a perpetual fire that allows you to cook or boil water indefinitely .
  5. Are you putting them between the bed and stove at Trappers Homestead. If you put water, reclaimed wood, and some other things on the first two boards from the wall it will disappear when you leave the cabin.
  6. Considering you can only hold it drawn for about 4-5 seconds makes me think it might be close to 80. I guess that would be some serious maple saplings.
  7. I've had good luck shooting them in the chest. Larger target for one thing. If I miss the chest.they usually bleed out quick.
  8. The first time I crossed it I would take 4-5 steps and stop.
  9. Took me a few minutes to realize there was a metal shard in my hand. Barely see it in the darkness. Then I ate the deer in pieces before I realized the journal said "eat until you're full". Had to restart. Best advice is to keep referring to the journal.
  10. In over 800 hours I've found one on ML. I wouldn't say I spend a lot of time looking for them, but I do explore a lot and would call them rare. The one I found was near the Trapper's Homestead.
  11. Over the last couple of days I've seen more and more posts from players having crashes on PS4. Usually occurs going through a load screen. After v1.04 mine started crashing on every 10-12th load screen. Mostly going into and out of cabins/trailers and once going into FM. It has finally corrupted my file and I've lost a 75ish day character on a crash going into Camp Office. I have about 800hrs on PC with multiple 100+ day Interloper runs. The game seems very unstable after the update.
  12. No prob.
  13. If you lose your headgear to wildlife struggles late game you have the constant threat of frostbite.
  14. Just wanted to add a data point to this topic. I've picked up as many as 14 feathers from that corpse. I've also picked up a lot of sticks from the location you described. 70 doesn't surprise me. Also if you carry on down that side of the RR tracks toward FM you'll prob find that many more. The sticks repopulate after a heavy wind and apparently they just keep spawning if you don't pick them up.
  15. I know the "feels like" temp is a rounded to a whole number. That's why the Touqe's 1.6 gives you a +2. If the ear flaps are 0.9 the combination would be +2.5. Don't know if they round 0.5 up or down. If you can repair a piece of clothing to increase the bonus by 0.1 or 0.2 see if that puts you up another degree.
