Pawel E Cieslak Posted September 28, 2014 Share Posted September 28, 2014 I was out of home when The Long Dark was released on Steam, so I had my first run yesterday and I was suprised how great start I've had. As I started I've noticed that the temperature was only -10oC /or 14oF/ and I was spawned 10-20 meters /30 to 60 ft/ from the camp office. My plan was to create my 'Base of Operation' at Trapper's Homestead so I begun collecting stuff from lake region and moving it over to BO. On my way there I haven't seen a single wolf. Then I moved to scavenge the Dam. Combined from my 1 - 2 h play I've found 2 Hunting Rifles, 20 bullets, lots of clothing first aid, 3 85%+ can openers, 2 60%+ hunting knifes, etc. (without finding 'The Location'). At the Dam I haven't got to meet Fluffy and found about 40 kg /88 lbs/ of loot. And being so confident from my expirience so far I've set out encumbered to drop it off. If wasn't encumbered I could have made it in 5 minutes, however with over 10kg /22 lbs/ of overweight it took much longer. That's when I run out of luck. I've got lost in a blizard, at -50oC /-58oF/ and at night. Even though I still haven't met any wolfes I've got a food poisoning, sprained my ankle 6 times and eventualy I died of cold. And all of this wouldn't have happend if I was willing to make two trips instead of being impatient. The thing that hurts me most is that I've wasted a great start with supplies for 20 - 25 days of game without having to hunt. Anyway I have learned my lesson of how important it is to keep an eye on the weight. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
