  1. @JAFO recommended it to me, it's on Steam. Honestly after playing Subnautica now for about 100 hours, I'm not in love with it. It's interesting. There is much to explore and craft. It's also a "survival game." It can be pretty fun sometimes, at least in the beginning when it's all new and exciting. After playing for a while you need to start exploring deeper and more dangerous biomes in the ocean. That could be fun too, except for one major issue I have with the game....no real weapons.... Eventually you start facing off against really giant "leviathan" class creatures....several different species of them, and you have a knife....a friggin knife. Needless to say if you try to kill one with a knife, it takes like 30 real life minutes and about 100 knife swipes. You will most likely be eaten before you succeed, so it's really just a huge headache. You aern't really "supposed" to kill anything. The devs went all pacifist after the Sandy Hook shootings apparently. So they refuse to add lethal weapons to Subnautica. So you are really just supposed to run away and try to avoid hostile predators. That's the part I simply don't enjoy. I don't run, I fight....it's in my nature. I don't enjoy games where you don't at least have a fighting chance. In Subnautica you don't.....
  2. Disappearing items being a bug since Wintermute was released and not hearing a "peep" about it being patched soon is more disappointing than the bug itself in my opinion....
  3. I remember this period, and I too recall complaining about it, and I also remember the responses from fanboys about how it isn't that bad, and it's fine, and nothing is broken.... Yet, I don't seem to be having this issue as frequently or to the degree it was when I had originally brought it up.... Guess it magically just fixed itself in a stealth patch....
  4. Nice, thank you for the various verifications peoples! Now when I feel like getting my The Long Dark groove back on, I won't have to fiddle about with various backup saves....and/or starting Episode 2 over....
  5. Apparently they finally released the patch for Jerimiah's flare cache.... I've been playing Subnautica, not sure when I'll feel like playing The Long Dark again. That being said, if anyone else has a save like mine, I'd like to know if the patch fixed the flare cache retroactively....or if I have to start Episode 2 over....or if even worse I have to start over from Episode 1.....AGAIN.... The type of save game I would be interested in hearing about is anyone who got Jerimiah his meds, picked up the cache note in the Carter Dam for Allan's Cave Cache and got Allan's cache, but then did NOT get 50 Trust with Jerimiah because they were waiting on this being patched. If you were in a similar situation and now that it was patched, you got 50 trust or more with Jerimiah and then the cache appeared and you were able to collect it, I'd like to know before I mess around with old saves and whatnot.... Thank you to anyone who takes the time to respond!
  6. Well I don't particularly care about the flares in the "flare cache" either, but there is an achievement for finding all the caches. An achievement which is impossible to achieve until this is patched.... As far as loot, yeah they implemented mechanisms to limit one's ability to hoard loot between episodes. I defeated the first rope in Episode 1, and the second rope in episode 2 appears easier to defeat. First it doesn't snap....allowing multiple trips. Secondly you can place heavy items over the blocked area the same way you move items in your base. I really don't understand the point in attempting to not permit you to carry whatever loot you acquired between episodes anyways.... Hoarders gotta hoard.... (Hinterland should make a shirt that says that)
  7. I think what he was trying to say is he has to kill tons of wolves to get his skill up to lv5 so he can then stalk deer and shoot them from crouching position. What you should be telling him is you can crouch to approach deer and hide behind trees, and then pop up and shoot the deer while standing real fast. They usually don't notice you right away when you stand, as long as you don't take any steps while standing....
  8. I believe Fluffy is dead....
  9. I love paragraphs and commas....
  10. I have a save from before I went to the dam and got the note for Allan's cache (allegedly even getting the note breaks the flare cache), and I'm just not playing anymore until this is patched. I haven't been playing The Long Dark since September 1st (which is when I reached Episode 2 after restarting Episode 1 at least 5 times for all the other patches). I started playing Subnautica instead with Jafo.
  11. No, the cache has been broken since before this thread was started. It was supposed to be fixed in the patch that came out before this thread, but it wasn't. We have been waiting for a new patch to fix it since. Since the thread began another patch was released which didn't address this issue in the patch notes. This post was made over a week ago, but then everyone at Hinterland was granted a month off. I asked if this patch was still coming a few days ago, and Patrick said yes, but the flare cache has been broken for almost a month total at this point.
  12. Holy Mary, mother of God.....now that's compensating....lol!
  13. WOW.....that's quite the "joystick." It's almost like you are compensating for something.....lol j/k
  14. I already tried to tell him this in a another thread that was also about harvesting bears or quartering them....I'm not sure why he constantly spreads so much false information without even checking if it's right by trying it in the game first.... "Unless I am wrong, but I believe quartering takes more time then simply "harvesting" the leather and guts first (if it doesnt then I suppose it makes sense to quarter)" You ARE wrong.... It would take at least 2 hours or more to harvest the bear hide and 10 guts....AND it would take ANOTHER 2-3 hours to harvest all 30-40 kilos of meat.... If you quarter it you get all the meat in bags, and the hide and guts are automatically harvested and lying on the ground for you to pick up in just about 2 hours total.... The only condition you lose would be like 10 condition on the first hour's worth of meat if you harvested it first and separately, and then harvested the rest without quartering. The meat in meat bags from a freshly killed bear is typically 70 condition or higher.....which is plenty of condition above 50 condition to get it back to 100 with cooking.... If the bear or whatever animal is still pretty fresh, the two hours are worth the tradeoff to get everything off the animal at once and in two hours. The meat bags decay at a rate of 10 condition per 24 hours, or at least twice as slow as leaving meat on the bear carcass, giving you much more time to harvest the meat bags, than if you left the meat on the bear to rot. I ALREADY explained ALL of this to you in the other thread a couple days ago.
  15. I'm glad you got past the fear of wolves finally. I did too! I view them as more of a nuisance now, something I have to go deal with....but I'm no longer afraid of having to deal with them. Especially with bait and a bow or rifle (usually bow because it's lighter and I have loot hoarding issues). I carry a couple small pieces of cooked leftover meat pretty regularly. Then if I hear barking I drop a piece and back up. When I see the wolf going for the bait, I shoot it in the face.... No more fear.... I still do my best to avoid them, especially if I'm not looking for meat/hide/guts, and I'm on my way to/from somewhere that I have to go for some other business in the game. However, if I fail to avoid them and they see me, then I just take care of them.... The game feels even more fun to me now that I am not constantly in fear of wolf attacks everywhere I go....
