  3. Please let's make sure this thread is only for questions for @Raphael van Lieropthe Creative Director of The Long Dark. It's not a place to put your ideas for the game or things you'd like to see. Ask questions about The Long Dark, game development and more but please avoid posts that are more a list of desires with a question mark at the end. Thank you.
  4. We have pushed v1.37 builds out to Time Capsule just in case there was an error. You should now be able to play the last updated version of Vigilant Flame.
  5. We've edited the opening post by @jeffpeng to remove some details about how to download earlier builds outside of Time Capsule. We will look into the claim that it's v1.35 rather than v1.37 uploaded to Time Capsule and rectify it if that is the case. Thank you.
  6. We are continuing to work on bringing The Long Dark to the Nintendo Switch. We don't have anything to announce beyond that at this point.
  7. The Long Dark has never had support for mods. It is something that is on our road map for the game's future, but not something we have the capacity to support at this time. Due to this updates may at times break unofficial mods since as we are improving the game for our players it may chance things that these unofficial mods rely on to operate. While we are allowing theoretical talk about whether or not people would like modding to come to the game, we are not allowing discussion or promotion of any mod in particular. This is because unofficial mods can cause issue with how the game operates and we are not able to offer technical support to anyone who has modded their game. So please if this discussion continues refrain from offering instructions on how to apply existing mods, where to find them or what exists. Thank you.
  8. [SPOILERS for Survival Mode Gameplay!] Below you'll find a list of locations in The Long Dark's Survival Mode. We hope these might be useful to you in completing the Faithful Cartographer Achievement. NOTE: In v1.19 of The Long Dark, we've released a fix for an issue with the Faithful Cartographer achievement that was keeping it from unlocking for many players. The fix is retroactive but may require performing one mapping action per region to update the Achievement “checklist”. *** In the list you'll see two categories - Icons and Location Triggers. Icons: Major Locations and Region Transitions that you will see on your in-game map, when zoomed in or zoomed out. Location Triggers: These also appear on your in-game map, but as text-only when zoomed out. As an example, we've cleared a portion of the Mystery Lake Region map to illustrate this for clarity: Mystery Lake Icon - Camp Office Icon - Carter Hydro Dam Icon - Forestry Lookout Icon - Trapper's Homestead Icon - Leave Mystery Lake Location Trigger - Unnamed Pond Location Trigger - Train Loading Area Location Trigger - Rail Tunnel Location Trigger - Frozen Creek Location Trigger - Derailment Location Trigger -

  9. We will be performing a minor update to our forum software today around 12 pm PST. During this update the forums may be offline. Thank you for your patience.
  10. It is not going to be abandoned. We realize that not everyone is following us on social media, reads interviews about the game or knows what’s going on but we have been releasing sizable free content updates regularly. If the game had come out and nothing had been released your view would be reasonable. As it stands however it seems to run counter to the evidence and have been worded in a particular combative manner. You seem particularly upset that we thank our players for their support. We understand that not every culture is into being polite and grateful but surely it is better to acknowledge the support of people than to continually expect them to do so. On the topic of politeness please familiarize yourself with our forum rules before continuing to post. We do have higher expectations for our posters here. You can criticize the game but we do expect polite discourse and that you treat others with respect including the development team. Thank you.
