Thank you :) 

I always really appreciate how hard the team works to continually improve and refine this wonderful game, and how quickly you address issues once they are identified and understood.  Thank you all so much.

Thanks for the update and the work you're constantly putting into the game!

However, one fix is missing: *[ALL] lowered chance 10-fold for getting a sprain :D

This is very important to me. Thanks!

I always played on "Low", because I thought that would mean less frequent respawns; then someone on the forum posted that it was the other way around, so I started a game on "High" respawn frequency. To be honest, I haven't really noticed much difference, but it will be good to know which one the is correct setting for what I want my game to be like.

I also wish to express my thanks for the update.

I would, however, like to ask that you get rid of the "delay" when picking up items.  We used to be able to double-click to quickly pick up items on the ground.  There is now a delay after the first click - please set it back to the way it was.

We are aware of this and looking into it.

That delay on picking things up is -extremely- annoying.

Welcome to the forums, @Nutter!  I'm sure it will be resolved soon.

I have to say that I really appreciate the fact that you stated this patch will not be sent to GoG as more fixes are in order and the combined fixes will be sent.

Considering how slow GoG is with TLD updates, at least us GoG users know not to look for it.

BTW! I do not mean this sarcastically. I really do appreciate it. 👍 :)

Is there any way for me to roll this update back?  I can't play with this annoying delay on picking up items.

What happened to the interior lighting fix?

Same, my interior lighting is not normal.  Too dark.

Hey guys,

I've noticed a sound glitch since the steadfast update which regular occurs during blizzards. There is no wind sound. It generally fixes if you rest.

Cheers

Do you mean the thing where if you step outside during a blizzard, then back indoors, the blizzard sound stops? Then if you immediately step outside again, the blizzard is still going full force? Because, yes, the same thing is happening here.

Edited to add: I haven't encountered a blizzard since this hotfix dropped, so it might no longer be doing that.

Thanks for the update, I’m glad to let @Admin and @Raphael van Lierop that the constant crashes on PS4 seem to be fixed. But I wonder, will you ever fix the problem that cause the items dropped on soft surfaces to assume random positions? Very annoying especially with meat pieces.

Also, the meat placed on a cooking slot makes a “cooking noise” even when there is no fire going. 

I love your game and your dedication.

Thank you!

Treadmilling seems to have been exacerbated by this hotfix in my experience.

I'm getting this too. It's pretty dangerous when attempting to pick items up quickly to avoid falling through the ice while beachcombing.

Well done Hinterland

 

I don't doubt that there are still a million problems, but the game is improving all the time.

I get the same thing during blizzards. For me it's when I hear a blizzard when I'm inside, then step outside and the sound is gone, even though the blizzard is still blowing.

Has anyone reported this through the support portal? I wasn't going to if I was the only one with the issue.

I'm still on 1.50.

I have the same issue and I reported it on the support portal a couple of days ago. But the more people report the same issue, the higher it will get on the priorities list, I guess. I expected it to be fixed with the new update, but nothing so far. At least, it is not listed in the change log, so I have to assume that it is not fixed.

And now this delay in pick up click. Personally, I don't care so much, but it is unfortunate that since a couple of update, each of them introduce undesired negative effect which take the attention away from the good stuff. That must be frustrating for the team. At the same time, this delay is noticeable for anyone that played the game for at least 5 minutes, so people can hardly be forgiving on this one.

Heyo!

 

Thanks for the update!

Can confirm about the slight delay between clicks when picking items up off the ground. Doesn't bother me one bit. 😁

Also no complaints about interior lighting. I know this has been a bone of contention in the community, but I personally like it when interior locations are dark, when the time of day is appropriate. It justifies bringing out the storm lantern to see where I'm going. So please, keep interior locations dark at night, but visible during daylight.

Easy fix for that. *Pay attention* to the slope indicator. Don't make a habit of traveling whilst encumbered. If you must traverse travel whilst encumbered and/or up or down a slope slow the heck way down. Also, try not to travel while exhausted. If you do, again, slow down.

Do those simple things and you should rarely get a sprain. 

Hinterland gave the slope indicator and the sprain risk warnings to help us know when sprains were a real possibility.

My 1 litre water bottles have changed shape. Previously they appeared as in real life, now they appear fatter and less high.
