  1. Theory About Methusaleh

    Guys it's obvious... he's a wizard! I mean he has a staff/cane, he has a beard, he can teleport, he is omniscient.... Obviously a wizard
  2. Question Thread :: Milton Mailbag

    I don't know if this has been asked before and I'm sorry if it has, but you've mentioned before a "TLD 2". I've seen you mention it several times when asked about implementing seasons into the current game. And I realize this is probably several years into the future and it's way too early to tell, but I was wondering if you had any ideas(even vague ones) about how different you'd want to make such a "sequel" compared to the original game? I'm asking about anything from gameplay mechanics to the artstyle here.
  3. What does bad weather make you feel in TLD

    Pretty much this, yeah.
  4. Adding Seasons - The Ice Fishing Huts

    @Ice Hole Mhhm you have some good points there, but then again this game was not meant to be easy. The idea of the fishing huts only being there for the first winter has kinda grown on me. Summer would be a time to prepare for the next winter. You can gather lots more food then and save it for the winter, that way you could compensate for the lost huts. Water doesn't sound to me like it's gonna be much of an issue. There are loads of streams in the game which have their origin in the mountains, if that's not safe to drink then nothing is. I base that on the fact that I've drunken mountain water straight from a river a million times growing up in Norway and I have yet to become ill because of it.
  5. Adding Seasons - The Ice Fishing Huts

    Ahh okay, I didn't even know Raph had a reddit ama. So I guess we have a the long dark 2 to look forward to in the far and distant future then
  6. Adding Seasons - The Ice Fishing Huts

    Oh is that so? That's not what I've heard. Where did you read that? I'm genuinely curious btw, I don't why that sounded so passive aggressive.
  7. Adding Seasons - The Ice Fishing Huts

    Now that is something I can get behind. Having canoes would be pretty sweet. Yeah, that's probably it. I was also thinking about those stoves, since just moving them alone would be problematic.
  8. So a while back a read that Hinterland was planning to add seasons to the game sometime in the far and distant future. Now I love this idea, they could totally make a 365 days year, kein problem. But as I was walking over mystery lake dreaming about this magnificent future I came to wonder; what would happen to the ice fishing huts in summer? I have never been inside one of these huts irl, but they're just plunked right on the ice, right? So what would happen to them in TLD should the ice melt? Are we just going to have to watch as the ice cracks and the huts sink? Or would it be reasonable to give the player the option to move the huts somehow to the safer grounds so they could be used the next winter? I really want to hear if anyone has any ideas, because it would kinda stink to lose the huts, should Hinterland implement seasons to the game.
  9. Pilgrim Report

    Yeah I've had several games where I have pilgrim level wildlife and interloper level resources and weather, and I find those games to be the most fun
  10. Making clothes out of wool

    This is more or less exactly what I was thinking, you just gone way more in depth than what I have. I kinda agree with the guy who commented under that it kinda goes under mending, but not quite. So maybe it could be a secondary skill like sharpening and cleaning.
  11. Making clothes out of wool

    As I was making myself a pair of deer skin pants I started thinking, wouldn't be great if we could make our own clothes out wool instead. Considering how warm and light it is(compared to the clothes made out of hides) it would be perfect. What if when we found an item out of wool we could unravel it and then knit or even weave it to make something else, something better. Or maybe we could have random ball of yarn spawn here and there that we could use. I've grown up in norway and we could easily get -20c(sometimes down to -30c) up here so I know very well how effective this stuff is when fighting the cold. And it remains warm when wet to so it's ideal for the climate we face in the long dark. I know very well there's good wool clothing in the game but not so much in interloper and custom modes with low resources, and I thought it could be quite fun if we could make our own clothes that way. So any thoughts on this? Is this something you'd like to see too or am I being completely unreasonable?
  12. Tips for moose hunting

    I'm looking around to get a moose hide or two, but I really don't know how to go about hunting a moose. So I was wondering if anyone had any tips at all on how to approach this. Should I wait around near where they usually spawn or should I just wander around till I find one? How many rifle/bow shots does it take? What's a good strategy? And anything else you might think of that could be useful, anything at all.
  13. I am actually really impressed you knew this was from the stone church, and thank you. I'll try to post more!
  14. Thanks so much for responding. The canvas is 33x24cm or about 13x9.4 in, so not a huge painting but it'll do.
  15. I was browsing some TLD fan art and you can say I got inspired. So I painted one of my favorite screenshots I have from this beautiful gem of a game.
