  1. A fresh start

    Why bother with new account... I suppose simply deleting your save/config data should do the trick. For Windows, do the following: Important - disable Steam Cloud sync for TLD. Navigate to %LOCALAPPDATA%\Hinterland\TheLongDark\ and nuke everything in there. Your saved games should be gone now. Launch the game at least once; you can re-enable Sync after that if you want. Do pirated versions register achievements? If so, and you'd like to reset those, probably you'd go for a new account like@MueckEsaid.... Good luck!
  2. Share your screenshots

    It must be someplace high above the Ravine trestle... you can make out the fallen engine right in the center of the pic. ...well done sir!
  3. Gyrocompass and bigger backpack

    Heh... these tiny gyros found in mobile phones of today are solid-state devices, integrated circuits... in fact, there's no spinning parts inside them any more, but tiny quartz resonators oscillating in a certain fashion... thus, fried by the aurora... along with the magnetometers, GPS, etc. What you did quite correctly describe, a mechanical gyro, well... McKenzie's Beaver is in pieces, it's cockpit ended up who knows where, all flight instruments likely shattered. If he did somehow manage to recover the nav unit from his plane, and it survived the crash intact, after 5 days (days it took him to get through his injuries) I guess it will have winded down by then.
  4. A Few Dead Men

    There used to be a rabbit patch in a kind of a nook along the tracks towards the Muskeg tunnel... it's right next to the Dave's Corner, but from the other side of rocks.
  5. The rope in the hydro dam

    Yep... just drop down from these planks onto the generator. Then you can just make it across the live wires near the barrels... just take your shoes off.
  6. The Hunted part 1 and blizzards

    From my memory, he doesn't give a ... if it's blizzard or not, he's just set to spawn once you set foot outside... Pop a flare shell to drive him away, and run like crazy. Running in the snowstorm may seem not that efficient, it's the abscence of wolves which makes a lot of difference.
  7. A Few Dead Men

    You have been checking behind tolet bowls, haven't you?
  8. Carter Hydro Dam Yard Safety

    A deer carcass, sometimes...
  9. A Few Dead Men

    That Secluded Shelf shortcut... goes like this: It's not that long, but yeah the wolf down there would certainly go for you... Probably it can do in a pinch when, say, a bear blocks the usual route, though... It's kinda funny to hear that Snowballs never knew about it.
  10. How not to sleep in Hopeless Rescue

    Now that is odd. Can you confirm this? You weren't freezing at the time were you? BTW I found that the stim comes very handy for that last tall climb right before the Summit... it's possible even to reach the plane wreck sprinting before it wears off.
  11. How not to sleep in Hopeless Rescue

    Yeah, talk about hauling ass... What I saw, when the crank wears off, it just sets your stamina to zero, no other debuffs incurred. Tecnically, if you parch and starve yourself consistently, then you can subside on coffee entirely to keep yourself going... until both your food/drink gauges will have filled up. I also think, even after that, taking a sip to fill that last empty wee bit of either gauge should keep the "Fatigue reduced" buff perpetually... TLD wikia probably has some data and actual numbers pertaining coffee/stamina, to crunch upon if one wished, if it's not too outdated by now.
  12. How not to sleep in Hopeless Rescue

    About the red-marked route of yours, I'd say you have the point... I certainly remember I used to get on the Ridge in that place... but this was ages ago. Just like the map shows, it used to take you right to the ridge cave. They apparently modified the terrain in that area, maybe sometime when Wintermute did came out? Nowadays, it's still possible to follow the road past the bridge a bit until you see a huge rock to your right and the terrain noticeably levels... there's a short path that'll take you to the cave, but it's easy to lose your tracks in there, and it's a wolf-gauntlet. I hate that place with passion... at the Ridge cave there are usually a wolf or two, and they will come down to get your ass amongst the rocks as you're making your way uphill... if I have to go through Skeeter's, I take the ropes... so I will have more range as I approach. As for the challenge... I'm no expert, last time it took me around 5 and a half days to complete, got quite lazy on the return leg though. Procuring Joe from random loot is a gamble, and looting everything takes a load of precious time... I guess I never bothered much and saved what I had been finding for the final push to the Summit...
  13. A Few Dead Men

    You ought to know the place... the map with the trestle... and big fallen tree bridge... yellow railway engine crashed down below... be sure to bring your own rope... and coffee, preferrably.
  14. Bear bells and bear spray

    I heard there are bear irritant shots which are to be used with a distress pistol not unlike we have in the game... Spraying the bear with something like the mace spray seems pretty much suicidal.
  15. Mr. Quonset Manager, Sir, wow, what I've just read, it's just... the most totally completely insane mental thing out there.
