  1. Challenges - Yea! Side history - sure! The game can still be great without those,but a new map? That would suck for folks that can't buy the DLC because it's only sold at Steam.

    Challenges, side history - that would be cool because the game would still be great without that stuff, but a new region DLC would suck for those folks that can't buy DLC from Steam, which would most likely be the only way to buy DLC.
  3. DLCs Wanted! Forget the whiners!

    Personally I don't want to play Wintermute until it's complete, so I'm patiently waiting for that. To add to that, since any DLC would most likely be sold only through Steam, that leaves a lot of folks out of the loop for the possibility of buying it. I don't have a problem with Hinterland releasing some DLC to help make a little money, even though I won't be able to buy it, which I would like to help support Hinterland, but if that DLC is something that, without it the game would be less than complete, such as a new region, that would suck for folks that can't buy it.
  4. You typically find coffee in microwaves, but not always.
  5. How to create save file?

    My pleasure.
  6. How to create save file?

    The files you need to save are found in AppData/Local/Hinterland, not the LocalLaw folder. You need to back up the 2 folders TheLongDark and TheLongDarkNoSync.
  7. Why dont fix?

    This has already been discussed in 3 other topics here, here and here. It seems to be all part of the same issue and Hinterland has stated they are working on it.
  8. Milton Mailbag -- Dispatch #23

    Getting snooty about it isn't going to help your cause. Personally, I have no problem with Hinterland making a little more money to help the game move forward. The bad part, for me and a few other users is that we would be left out of the ability to buy the DLC because we don't use Steam, and if that DLC left us out of some important aspect of the game, that would seriously suck, but at least Hinterland would get a little money for the work to continue. Now if Hinterland could make that same DLC also available in some other fashion, say - at their website or here in the forum, that would be great.
  9. Question Thread :: Milton Mailbag

    The moose hide satchel uses one of the accessory slots, when/if you make one. It gives the ability to carry and extra 11 lbs (5 kgs).
  10. Question Thread :: Milton Mailbag

    Ahhh! Good point. My bad. I misunderstand what he said.
  11. That's one of the things they recommend to hikers in wilderness areas and National Parks.
  12. Question Thread :: Milton Mailbag

    The loading screens aren't there to show the tips and info. The tips and info were added to make the loading screens less boring. The loading screens are necessary to actually load the next scene of the game. There's a lot of data that has to be loaded. Hence the need for the loading screens. You can't click through that.
  13. I never have. I actually quite flipping them down a long time ago. I'm guessing Hinterland has plans for them but what and when is anybodies guess.
  14. I just found another place where the kitchen cabinet doors drop, although I don't think this is an issue where you could lose anything. These doors dropped waaaay down. This house is in Milton, on the right on the road to the farmhouse, between the main road and the burned down schoolhouse. I don't remember ever breaking anything down in this house though. Just looted it.
  15. The PV barn and farmhouse have always been very dark. It seems that it's darker now though, or is that just my imagination?
