IRL counterparts for TLD items

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I'm trying to find IRL items that inspired or look very close to items and clothing in the game. Click on the links for pictures. Please help me in this quest to gather TLD items in real life !!

     RANDOM ITEMS

FIRESTRIKER
TLD
IRL : Aurora 440C

CUP OF COFFEE
TLD
IRL : this one's not hard : official mug

     CLOTHES

INSULATED BOOTS
TLD
IRL : Sorel Caribou (women version has the closest color, men version is a bit darker)

EXPEDITION PARKA
TLD
IRL : It looks a bit like the Mountain Hardware- Absolute zero, but they're not exactly the same (the red part and the fur are missing).

The coton toque is easy to find, but I have a hard time finding the wool toque. If it even exists...

Help me continue this list !

Orange Soda is based on Crush Orange.

Stacy's Grape Soda is based on Crush Grape. Side note the soda's name is a reference to stacyplays, a Youtuber that played TLD back in it's early days and gave the game a significant amount of attention due to her videos

Summit Soda is either based on Mountain Dew, or Ginger Ale of some sort. More likely to Mountain Dew since "Mountain", "Summit".

 

Peanut Butter shows some similarities to "Crunchy Peanut Butter" made by Kraft

Here's the two so you can compare yourself:

TLD's Peanut Butter: https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/intothelongdark/images/8/80/Peanut_butter_icon.png/revision/latest?cb=20171223165218

Kraft's Crunchy Peanut Butter: https://product-images.metro.ca/images/h02/h1b/8856215552030.jpg

 

The Distress Pistol is based on the Orion Flare Gun. This is info I got from the TLD fan wiki.

I would have guessed 'Sierra Mist.'


:coffee::fire::coffee:
Here's why I think so:

If anyone can find a storm lantern matching the one in the game, let me know.  I can find kerosene lanterns that use a mantle, and can have an optional flint/steel mechanical striker attached to them.  But lanterns with a mantle have the mantles hanging from above--the storm lanterns in the game clearly have an open flame burning from below, as you would see with a conventional wick-based lantern.  I've never seen a wick-based lantern that feature a mechanical striker.

I found a Jerry can that looks sort of like the one in TLD.  Plenty of other Jerry Cans can look the same with different names but the one I found an image of is called a "RS PRO Metal Jerry Can, 20L"

One of the more obvious one's, but the hunting rifle is based of a Lee-Enfield bolt action rifle.

condensed milk looks sort of similar to California Farms's condensed milk

Stones are small hard objects that can typically be found outside

I'm pretty sure the storm lantern is a hybrid made from both, the best of both worlds, so to speak, but doesn't actually exist in real life.

Saw a radio in a thrift shop the other week, looked exactly like the one in the TLD.

Regret not picking it up now. It was the same colour, shape and size, and even gave it the obligatory click on/off to see if it would work!

Much like what @jeffpeng said, I think its a bit of a hybrid and a true analogue doesn't quite exist but ... this one looks really similar. If I was to pick one for cosplay, it'd be this https://www.petromax.de/en/px-produkte/petromax-hk500-electro-hanging-lamp/

I'd always assumed the jerry can was old ex WW2 army surplus (much like the Lee-Enfield, in a way).  an abandoned WW2 airfield/ radar station would make a great location in any new regions.  mmmm, 1% condition spam...

Here is my old Hacksaw.  This has been around for at least thirty years.

1584647409380.thumb.JPEG.dc1e98dcf95e70094638a2f62ddabeed.JPEG

Condition is 35 percent.

This Meatsaw was passed down to me from my grandfather.

1584647559952.thumb.JPEG.f6017d9e3ea981e6d59d7ae947459da6.JPEG

Condition is 88 percent.

The Long Dark is screaming for the Meatsaw to be added. With carcass quartering enabled.
