Could devs create pinned thread in wishlist section confirming what ideas can possibly be integrated into a game (eventually what is considered by devs as possible implementation)? It would prevent suggesting same ideas again and again.

You know there are excellent ideas, very possble to integrate wihout much coding problems.

Is there something you would really want to add to the game but you won't because you know the community wouldn't like it?

I started out as (and still am) a tabletop RPG player and came to video games relatively late in life. The Long Dark is on a very short list of video games I play over and over again. Have you ever considered working with a tabletop company to make a Long Dark pen-and-paper game?

If you were going to pick an existing tabletop system to use as a starting point for a Long Dark pen-and-paper game which one would you pick?

Thanks for crafting such a unique experience!

Dear Hinterland
I am looking for an opportunity to get the notes from the tracks from the original sound tracks. (all tracks)
It would be very delightful if you relase notes from all tracks to play on an instrument : )

Have you ever thought about customization? I picture myself smearing rose hip berries on the stock of my rifle to make it have red streaks or using the hunting knife to give it an engraving. I think would be pretty cool.

With the advent of Crossroads Elegy, I do have a couple of questions that are relevant to what I'm doing in my current survival sandbox run:

- Will the potential updates to the Pleasant Valley region impact the requirements for the Faithful Cartographer achievement?
- If so, for those of us that have already mapped out Pleasant Valley (or most of it in my case) would we be able to go to the new/updated locations and be able to update the map to reflect those changes?

[Context]
I've had experiences in the past where once an area was mapped I wasn't able to "update" what was showing on the map to make it current (for example - I found a prop carcass, harvested it... but then when I used charcoal to update that spot, the mark of the carcass still remained on my map even though it was long gone).

While playing around with the time capsule I went back and tried out the builds I never got to play. Going back to the earliest build I learnt that the "wolf struggle mini-game" was slightly more complex, having to build up power with the left mouse button and unleash it right mouse button once the bar was full, instead of the newer mini-game where you just have to rapidly spam the mouse button. What made you choose to replace the older and more complex struggle mini-game with the more recent and less complex one?

Hello Raph,

 

If I remember well, a lot of new feature that came in the game were previously teased in the world of the game, by items themselves but unusable: examples of cooking pots and "massettes" (bulrushes in english ?)

And, there is a lot of time now we can see soaps in interiors.

Is it crazy to anticipate and phantasm there will be an update with an hygiene system ?

Thank you,

PS : I hope the climate is not to disordered in Canada. Here in France, nature suffer from an unsual hot climate. Worrying.

How does the spawning of bears work? My 2 theories are that, 1 the bears will remain the same for example if i see the bear at trappers cabin and not at mystery lake near the lone lake cabin will it forever be that there will never be a bear near the lone lake cabin and the bear near trappers cabin will always be roaming around the area or resting in his den. Theory 2 each of the bear dens always has a bear but the bear is resting for most of the time so i wont see it near the lone lake cabin often.

Any chance we could get a synthetic version of the moose hide satchel? something man made like either an improvement to your pack adding extra pockets or a man-made satchel you could find in homes that you could assign to the accessories slot much like the moose hide but with less of a bonus, say 3.5 kilos perhaps? maybe something like the image below.

P.S. How is Canada's weather right now? we have had an unusually hot October down here in Georgia (the state) with an October that started at 90 degrees and then went down to about 65 degrees Fahrenheit in a couple of days, pretty worrysome.

Hey Raph! 

Did you hide any loot-container in the game that is nearly impossible to find? I wonder around and search every corner if some of you guys from the design team hid something under a rock or a hidden space. So far there are two options: 1- There is no secret to be found 2- You hid it so well that noone ever found it.

Thanks for this awesome game, yet again!

Hello Raph,

Firstly I want to congratulate the team for the great work and say that I really love this game and can't wait to play Episode 3. My questions are:

1) Will We have 4DON this year? I ask this because  of the release date of Episode 3.

2) I know the revolver wasn't made for that purpose, but is it "possible" to kill or make a bear bleed with the revolver? I would like to know before risking my life vainly.

How does protection work? If i a clothing item with 100% protection was added would wearing it make you immune to all damage as long as it stays intact? What would happen if you had over 100% protection?

Raphael, have you considered using the railroad for travel in a future story episode? The canfor crummy's and the hyrail pickups are already in game, but there's also much smaller "speeders" that would be a fun and useful way to travel around on the RR. I work for a railroad in Washington State and we had one we used for a while, a Fairmont S2 with a 1 cylinder 2 stroke engine that dates back to the 1930's. They're cantankerous, smokey, and yet completely endearing. Old timers call them "put-put" cars, and that's exactly what they sound like. I've attached a couple of photos of the car we used to run, and a video of it.

Also, I highly recommend Buster Keaton's last movie, which centers around a RR speeder trip across Canada!

Firstly, congrats on the 5 years! I for one am very happy to see Hinterland still defying death in such an inhospitable environment. Folks of my own heart, to be honest.  :birthday kiss: MMWAH!


Now the question: With the dawn of the Episode 3 update, what changes are happening to the survival maps? I have a lot of stuff in Pleasant Valley and I need to know ASAP what areas might get an inventory deletion with any map changes.... please, dude. Just tell me which areas are getting "thanosed".

You mentioned before that you prefer to give us a bit of heads-up if things change, so please... any info would be appreciated.

Hello,

Have you heard of "The wild eight" by HypeTrain Digital ? What do you think about it ? 

I saw the trailer a week ago and I think some elements are really similar to The long Dark.

Hey Raph!

I recently found the Signal Hill Radio podcast that you guys did for a while last year, and I really enjoyed the window into your guys' thoughts and views on the plethora of things you discussed. Have you thought or considered bringing that back once you have time?

Really looking forward to episode 3!

Hey. I have a question about Fishing hut in the area of Timberwolf Mountain.
From Climber's journal page it is known that the plane went down September 5. The cause of the crash is probably due to Aurora. Was the ice already strong enough to set up a fisherman's hut? And if the plane went down before known events, who is the owner of the hut? 

P.S.1

I will leave the Russian version of the question. Suddenly there will be someone who will translate more well.

Привет! У меня есть вопрос о рыбатской хижине в локации Волчья гора. Из записки альпениста ясно что самолет упал 5 сентября. Разве лед был уже достаточно крепок чтобы установить на него хижину? Если самолет упал до известных событий, то ткто установил хижину?

P.S.2

When will the notes be translated into Russian?
