  1. What did you do to the sky? It is absolutely awesome! I did not really notice for a bit because I was running from blizzards but when I got to CH and a chance to stand on the porch at sunset I really noticed the refinements. The colors are fantastic and there is no gradients like before. Sunrise is smooth like silk. And the aurora is so much better. I put my laptop on the coffee table and wife an I just watched it for an hour while sipping wine. It was awesome before but you buffed it to the max. How did you improve the visuals so much? It is like a whole new experience.
  2. I'm talking about the clothing that I wear and not the general decay settings for items in the world. I would like to be able set a high decay rate for clothing on a custom game so that I can use all that cloth in the world, burn through my repair kits, force me to craft guts into fishing line, use all my metal to make hooks, make me run back to PV or MT to get more cloth, and have something to do late game before starting over. I am currently in a 300+ day run going for level 5 achievement on everything and mending skill is far behind everything else so I think a bit more balance on the need to mend would be good. Of course I could mend everything from 99% to 100 but that is not how I play. Seems silly. So I only mend when it is about 80% or less. In the same way I don't start a fire just to get more skill, or shoot a deer just to get rifle skill. Anyway this post is for the Devs and not for the usual like or dislike arguments that the Big Opinions have, I know Hinterland reads everything here and will take everything in to account as to how they want the game to work. Thanks Hinterland! Best game ever!
  3. I have seen 3 times now that a deer I shot runs around like mad then resumes the normal behavior. This is after the update. The first time was in PV. It runs off and I try to follow but PV is so big that it gets out of sight so I zigzag the hay farm area looking for crows to tell me where it dropped. A game hour or two I spot a walking deer over by the barn, and I am hungry so I need a kill, so I saunter over to get me a new kill and find the other one later.... when it drops dead. Its my original deer. Next time was in TWM. Shot a deer on the lake with the bad aiming system but I got splatter so I know it was hit. It runs off over a hill. I follow and find a deer just walking normally. Again I am hungry so I shoot it. It runs off. I follow around a hill and find another deer walking normal. So I shoot it. I'm pretty sure it is the same deer because there is only one spawn on the lake and nothing else around until the wing area. Anyway I assume the aiming is the problem because of the new rifle sights. Third time after aiming is fixed I find a deer up at the lookout in CH. I don't need meat but it is right there and I want to up my revolver skill so I pop him from up close. It runs off like mad. I check my stats to make sure I had a hit. I go check the blood splatter. Sure enough... a hit. I run to follow it which is easy because it is following the road back and forth. There is a blood trail. I lose sight for a bit but I can hear it up a slope (of course they like to go where you will get a guaranteed sprain) running around. Then the running stops. I peak around a rock outcrop and see it casually strolling down the slope, pausing to scratch the ground and eat as they are prone to do. So I crouch to hide from it and start to follow it to see what is going on. Once on the road it starts to return to the lookout area and as I get on to its path I can see blood trail so I definitely hit it, it is the same deer, and it is bleeding out. So why has it not keeled over by now? I shot it early in the morning about sunrise plus 1 hour. It wandered about bleeding until about 2hrs before sunset with me watching, until it finally keeled over and died. So has behavior changed now? Used to be that you shoot deer. It runs for an hour then keels over hopefully within sight of where you followed it,
  4. Thanks Raph for your openness to all the questions asked. I think your game studio is awesome and what you have produced is top of the line. I have never loved a game. Until this. What game can you just stand on the porch and feel the beauty and emptiness of the long dark?
  5. It's full on dead of winter for me. And getting colder.... and darker....
  6. Ok, I have played a few regions now since the update. Now I'm standing on my porch in CH looking at a fantastic slow sunset and thinking the sky is different than before. Cant quite say what, but the colors are more vibrant maybe? The clouds are more cloudlike? The upper sky is more skylike? In Milton, at Grey Mom's porch at dusk, the sounds of the bird calls seemed new. More types of birds, and you could tell if they were left or right or behind or near or overhead or off in the forest. The aroura is better I think. It seems more refined and fluid. The breath is better? less angular? Not intrusive at all for a cold climate Canadian like me. So many little things that I cant quite place my finger on. Thanks Hinterland for your devotion to detail and quality. I have over 2100 hour in this game many of which hours are just standing and watching the weather you have created so well.
  7. I noticed too. lots of very subtle improvement. The devs put their heart into this game. Thanks! Also thanks to Eldrich for giving some positive to the devs. They need it. of course I don't need to write a whole essay about how great I am to make the devs feel good about themselves. Devs...Good. Keep it up. Ignore the negative people.
  8. so..... can we now drop this whole modding topic and let Hinterland get on with giving us the most awesome game ever? modding = later fix my crash=now awesome environment standing outside my porch on PV with sunset blizzard=well.... awesome
  9. I agree. I love this game and the developers who made it
  10. Thanks Hinterland! you guys always listen! And you are fast fixn'
  11. With what other game studio could you talk with the creative director about pirating and modding and get a discussion going? Kudos TLD!
  12. Hello Raph. It has been a tough week for Hinterland but you pull through as usual My question is how do you prepare your team for the possible negative response to a major update that changes mechanics of the game? With this update ( and previous) the fan base reacts in a hateful way on some things that must feel very personal to you and your team. You work so hard to produce a quality game experience and then you get such negative response from those that previously were so supportive. I can imagine that it would be very demoralizing to you and your team but you and the admin response to player frustration remained positive all week. Good on you! Again the question is how do you prepare for that, and how do you keep the moral of your team up during a problematic release? Kudos on fixing issues right away. Hinterland rocks! Another question... can you let us test for you? We would have caught the sprain and aiming issues right away.
  13. I meant the crash bug. No crashing now
  14. Aiming is not working for me either. With L4 rifle, warm, full condition, crouched and close, I took a head shot at a dear. Missed! I never miss. Ever! It took 3 more shots to bring it down finally. Usually I get instakill on first shot. Same with the bow at L5. took a dozen shots at the PV target with arrow landing all over the place. My only wolf test with the revolver was walking up to growly guarding his (my) deer and shooting him in the face. Should have dropped him right there but it only wounded him. No idea where the shot hit.
  15. Quonset on the lowest shelf behind the cash register desk. Already shot a wolf in the face. Works great!
