  1. Hey guys. I thought I'd put this up for any rock climbers or people interested in what is certainly one of the great athletic feats in recent years: Alex Honnold's free solo - no ropes or gear - ascent of the iconic El Capitan, Yosemite's 2,300 meter face, captured in the film Free Solo. Filmed by renowned, elite climbers, many of whom will be familiar to those of you who follow the sport and directed by E. Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin, who previously released Meru, a film documenting an amazing first ascent of the Shark's Fin by Conrad Anker, Renan Ozturk and Jimmy Chin, Free Solo is not only a climbing epic, but a great character study of Honnold, a very unique and gifted climber. If it's in a theater near you, this is a must-see. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=urRVZ4SW7WU
  2. Climbing out of the ravine

    Be fully rested before beginning the climb (that rope, along with one in TWM, is one of the longest climbs) and rest on the ledge, where you can either get a bit of sleep if you have a bedroll (watch temps, storms, etc) or pound a few coffees if you have them. But it is a two-stage climb that needs you to be well-rested at the start and recover on the ledge. Best to start the climb right after sleeping and no running from the cave to the start of the climb. Gotta save all of your stamina and energy.
  3. Thanks for your continued work team. Amazing update, and lest we forget, all of this still for the original asking price of the game. The continued support and work is quite remarkable. Back to the Hinterland store to show some love!
  4. Famous Last Words

    "Yeah, I can make it." Said many times, in many places, shortly before not making it.
  5. As far as I know, the locations have to pop up on the screen. Not enough to have been in the area and mapped it...you have to find the spot to activate the name of a particular place to come up on the screen. I may be wrong, but that's how I understand it to work. Good luck.
  6. Dev Diary - November 2018

    I'm just a playing pleb and I'm down with whatever you think is best Raphael. It's your company and while development has been a bit slow, the results are stellar. So, with faith in such continued outcomes, do what you feel is best...I'm not going anywhere. Looking forward to giving you some more money.
  7. Change to wolf struggle system

    With all due respect and not trying to sound inflammatory, games cannot be built around nor be modified to remedy player mistakes. The current system allows a very reasonable amount of time to select your weapon before the fight begins, so long as the player doesn't panic and remains calm. I prefer the choice, as sometimes I do want to use different weapons depending on their condition and having one selected as default would at some point end up working against that and I'd have to take more time and clicks to get around to another choice. There is no need to rush the decision, so as has been stated by others, keep your cool and take a moment to consider your choice.
  8. Bear Traps!

    Different forms of violence may have similarities (they are all violence), with some being more or less cruel, some being more or less necessary but there remains something fundamentally different between all of your examples and leg trapping. And I literally don't do anything in video games besides play them, literally.
  9. Dev Diary - August 2018

    Am I the only PC player who will purchase the console releases just to have a physical edition of TLD? For the first time in my PC Master Race gaming life, I'm jealous of consolers.
  10. Hushed River Valley is difficult

    Always a good idea to write notes in your journal about what you left, when and where.
  11. I am prepared to pay for the next and every episode released and sandbox updates until they stop making content. This is one game that is so undervalued I felt it was my duty to purchase something from the Hinterland store. If you want to support the devs, do the same. There is some crazy cool stuff there and they ship all over the world in very well-protected packing.
  12. Fishing tips N trix

    Build cooking fires outside. Or catch fewer fish. Or hunker down in the fishing hut for a long while. Or take them back to base raw and do your cooking there. It's only really an 'issue' because you're making it one.
  13. Bear Traps!

    Well the internet beat you to it; that discussion has been had a few times and it always failed to be either funny or successful. Glad we averted that roundabout.
  14. Bear Traps!

    Then how about introducing cannibalism and eating the frozen corpses laying around? Yeah, some bets still stand, even in a video game. HL would (rightly) have animal rights groups all over them for putting such a cruelty into the game, especially as we have a far more acceptable (though still debatable) method of dispatching wildlife already in the rifle.
  15. Wall mounted Antlers and Heads

    It's a morbid practice employed by show-off trophy hunters to hang in a rec room, not by people who truly live off the land. If one is truly surviving with nothing, there's nothing to hang anyhow. Everything would be used, right down to the bones. Celebrating the kill would be each and every meal the animal provides, each tool made from the bones, every warm night provided by the pelt, every fish caught with the bait and every wolf distracted by any viscera that couldn't be used. Sorry. I have strong feelings about this kind of thing.
