  1. I second the idea to be able to build a sled of some description - even if it was a very crude one.
  2. I just thought that I would chime in and give some praise. The graphics look awesome and, along with the audio, they make the game very compelling and draw you deeper into the experience. There is obviously loads more to come [along with some fine tuning] but so far I am hooked and I can't wait to play the full game. It's clear that a huge effort has gone into the game and it is good to see how much of a part the community plays. Keep up the hard work.
  3. I also agree that the degradation is off. While the extreme conditions would certainly mess with some equipment, I don't think it is realistic as it is. Obviously this is a game and not real life but it needs to accurately portrait what it would be like as much as possible. I don't see how opening a can would degrade a can opener in any significant way seeing as I have a can opener that is 10 years old and is as good as the day I bought it. Same thing goes for knives and axes - they can certainly get damaged and do need maintenance but only when seriously abused would they deteriorate at the
  4. I didn't realise you could save the game but why does it bother you if someone else wants to load from a saved game if they screw up. It's a single player game so how does it affect your gameplay? If you don't like it the simple solution is not to use it.
  5. I also think that clothes would be better if it showed or stated what slots were available. I like the idea of showing whether the highlighted item would be a gain or loss as spectre1989 described.
  6. I think that the plane is in another location and the sandbox we have seen so far is only a small part of the entire area.
  7. It is a bit ridiculous to say that there should be no map for everyone because you, personally, don't want to use a map. The solution is to not use it. Although if you were actually in this situation and you refused to use a map because you think you are too cool, then you are a fool! [Added bonus that it rhymed]. I also think it is unrealistic that there would not be a detailed reference map in the forestry lookout station and at the camp office. I do like the idea of having finding a map of the area but it should be possible to make a map that only includes the area's that you have explored
  8. I had two cans of peaches. I wanted to consume both so it was when I went back to my inventory after eating the first that I noticed I still had two. I thought I had clicked on the wrong thing so I tried again and was able to consume it about 5 times after which I got a message saying something along the lines of "you can't eat any more". I think that my can opener was degraded each time but I didn't make a note of it so I am not sure. I didn't think check whether it was 100% full each time. I will try and recreate it.
  9. Version: Alpha V.096 Location: Hydro Dam Building I was encumbered, carrying 32kg with a capacity of 30kg. Then I got exhausted and my capacity dropped to 15kg. I was then able to consume the same can of peaches about 5 times and my stat levels responded appropriately. When I had slept and my capacity was back up to 30kg, the can disappeared the next time I tried to consume it. I had left the hydro building at this point.
  10. Wouldn't you know, I went to post a long reply but I had been logged out and have to rewrite it so this time it will be shorter. You should bear in mind that just because a law does not currently exist prohibiting something specific does not mean that people don't need protection from it. To assert otherwise would be ridiculous as if this was the case then there would never be any new laws to protect people from new developments. Also, to be pedantic about it, every business does not have the right to do "whatever" is in their "best interest" as this can [often] be against the law [i.e. monopo
  11. From being used as free venture capital to entice bigger venture capital firms or corporations [like facebook].
  12. I acknowledge that kickstarter and other crowdfunding platforms are set up in such a way that backers have no legal right to a share of the profits in the case of a sell out such as oculus rift and I doubt that this was an expectation of any of the backers when they chose to fund the project. My point is that the oculus rift would not have existed as a company nor would they have been in a situation to make 2 Billion had they not received what is essentially a 2.5 million interest and risk free loan from the backers [not to mention their support, pushing developers to adopt the tech into their
  13. I am glad that the forum now uses phpbb. Changing your username back to what it was should take all of 30 seconds and changing your password should be something that you do regularly unless your one of those idiots that has used the same password for years for every account you have. As far as an estimated release date - when you backed the project you were given an estimated release date of October 2014 [if I remember correctly] and I'm sure that hinterland will let everyone know if they think it will be later than this and obviously as soon as they know an exact release date they will let ev
  14. I'm sure that at this stage, everyone is aware of what has happened with oculus rift selling out to facebook [which makes it even worse] so I wont go into detail. I just wanted to put it out there that I will never be supporting any projects on Kickstarter [i have been in contact with them about changing their system to protect backers and their responses and attitude were shocking - they don't care as long as they make their money] or any other crowd funding projects where funders aren't protected from being used as free venture capital for greedy companies. If hinterland is looking at crowd
