  1. What has always impressed me about the ice is that even when looked at from far away, there are no simple repeating textures like you see in a lot of other games.
  2. It's so interesting to hear that Raph was partly inspired by wandering around the Fallout 3 map. I started playing The Long Dark not long after I stopped playing the DayZ mod for Arma 2, an experience that also featured a big map with no minimap. In retrospect, I realize I was already playing that game TLD-style: I would get the hell away from other players (and the clunky combat) on the crowded coast ASAP and push into the interior wilderness to be by myself. Thank you to everyone at Hinterland for giving us a beautiful world to lose ourselves in.
  3. I started reading the next book in my non-fiction backlog, SPQR: A History of Ancient Rome by Mary Beard. I haven't gotten too far, but I've already learned that Cicero was a slumlord.
  4. That is a great line, I am totally stealing it for my next workplace argument!
  5. Go to 2:20 for the sneaky bastard. And hey, there was a .38 pistol in the prototype inventory!
  6. You have impressive terrain recognition! I am currently mapping the Muskeg and pushing west along the southern edge.
  7. Aurora over the Muskeg, as I adapt to cave living.
  8. I stopped at the Trapper's Cabin on my way from Pleasant Valley to Forlorn Muskeg. It felt a little like seeing an old friend after a long time apart.
  9. Back in the Valley after exploring Timber Wolf Mountain.
  10. So this happened to me a couple of weeks ago after sleeping, when the game should normally save. Oh no, my progress towards 500 days is doomed! I knew I had plenty of hard drive space, but no matter what I did, I could not make the game save my progress anymore. I submitted a report, but after a few days I decided to do more research. I found some posts, both here and on the Steam forums, but nothing consistent or specific, except that a few them mentioned Steam as the problem (although this message had also popped up on consoles). So I checked the properties and decided to get rid of the cloud synch, since I only play on one machine anyways. Success! My save file can save again, my progress has resumed. I have no idea how this happened, why this worked, and if the problem will return, so if anyone has good info on this, please reply. Also, I wanted to get a potential solution out there in case this happens to anyone else. I mean, I can't be that special, can I? Maybe I should play lotto.
