  1. I personally was quite excited to see this system being re worked, and then I played the game... for the most part everything is great except now paths that I used regularly are quite off limits due to receiving 2 at best, to 5 sprains in rather quick succession. One spot in particular being anywhere near the gun bunker is mystery lake. I mean if you leave down the "long" slope towards frozen creek your more or less ok, while leaving to the right (looking at the bunker) and heading towards the rock cairn your taking your life into your own hands, little lone if you continue down that hill to t
  2. So this happened to me earlier today and at first I thought I had just missed a couple arrows I fired off at a deer. But when it happened again after only letting loose one arrow and bagged the buck I figured out how to replicate it.. What happened right as I exited the camp office on mystery lake I had noticed a buck, I fired off one arrow which hit and killed it. I got the prompt about frostbite and hypothermia so I immediately went back into the camp office. After a quick sleep I went to quarter up the buck.. and low and behold there was now 3 arrows at various degrees of condition.
  3. So I've taken quite a few months off from playing this game ( roughily since last august-ish ) and with the story mode and new update just around the corner I wanted to jump back into it and shake the cobwebs loose.. I only play the game on either stalker or interloper first of all so I'm quite used to the "cards" being stacked against me, but I was absolutely gob smacked to find out that you can no longer throw the flares.. seriously! WTH! They are now NO better then torches, I've tried to work around this by using the brandishing mechanic.. but 30/30 attempts later and the wolves
  4. This idea has been suggested and requested since the game launched! But it's a GREAT idea non the less! In fact this suggestion has been around since snow shoes and skis where suggested. And according to the road map they are inbound! So fingers crossed! The whole idea of the wolves, bears and the upcoming mountain cats digging it up could also add some much needed new dynamics to the game, I can see fights between scavengers breaking out around the ice box.
  5. well I have bad news all around. I did as you suggested and still empty. Even on a new game. the reason its taken me a bit to respond is, I bought TLD for my daughter on her Xbox one and the download finished shortly after I posted this.. And on a fresh install the same thing is happening aswell on all difficulties. on a good note tho I have not mysteriously lost a save file
  6. Hey guys! Before I make a complete ninny out of my self, Is the trappers cabin supposed to be completely void of any items/equipment/wood and even the backpack? the first time this happened was on stalker so I figured, ok cool they made starting off a real huge challenge now. then Today I was playing around on voyageur and ran into the same thing.. Empty now I've tried it roughly 10 times now on each difficulty and the only thing I've actually found in there was from the safe: 2 insulated boots, 1 flare gun round and 4 flares.( this is no surprise to me tho I've always had bad l
  7. I'm apart of the preview program on Xbox one so my console updates sometimes twice a week. When I get home ill try to find the exact version build. And Yes I'm always connected to the net, but now that you mentioned this when my system was offline I cant remember having this issue. This has also just made me remember somthing else. Now this might be relevant. sometimes when being chased by a wolf ill try running back into the building I was in or the closest one near me.. But when doing the transition from outside to inside the wolf can still briefly attack while the screen is black,
  8. trust me when I say this.. I'm also VERY careful to the point where I actually set a timer and everything after a save ( the timer has been recently do to testing areas ) But i won't even Xbox button outta the game.. I use the in game quit option.. I've lost saves from 1 day to 200 days.. With varying degrees of "success" i.e. full crafted clothing, 40+ ammo 20+ arrows etc etc.. The main difference I can see is, I myself only play on stalker. on a side note, I also never have had a app running in the background ( intentionally ) nor do I switch to other apps making the game go into a "sle
  9. No apologies necessary! As for alphas go your guys game is amazingly put together! If saves is the worst thing that can happen *knocks on wood* you guys are way ahead of the game so to speak! When the save kinks are ironed out Ill get to test out some more of my elaborate plans for a long and hopefully not to cold life lol I'd be more then willing to help out in any way possible. And hopefully I may be able to help!
  10. Sorry for the long delay with my reply, I have just lost more saves as recently as yesterday. And this time it was on a brand spanking new Xbox one with a fresh download of the game. I kept pressing on starting on different maps and heres a list of the ones I've lost saves on. Not saying it cant happen on the ones not mentioned, its just yet to happen to me. MYSTERY LAKE camp offices: On entry save and sleep save Trappers: On sleep save Carters (fluffy floor): On entry save PLEASANT VALLEY Farmstead: On entry save and sleep save TIMBER WOLF mountain
  11. I never thought I could/would get to "feel" like I've been apart of a games development. Sure I've played my share of closed alphas/betas but in the end 90% of the peoples voices where never heard. And then came along The long dark. I've played this game avidly since it came to Xbox one and it quickly jumped to my top 3 go to games. Even in the Xbox versions current state with saves disappearing/corrupting I'm still sitting here or standing ( thanks for the scares wolves lol ) enjoying myself and furthering my "survival skills" and techniques. I've been waiting and I'm sure other Xbox use
  12. ok. Now your arguing for arguments sake. Your pulling bits and pieces of what I have wrote and placing them where you need them to be. we can take this into private msging all you want. I don't think you quite read what I wrote.. what I will say is the sticks pointing north sure.. I guess its exploitable.. But for that to happen you would still need to know where your heading.. And for that you would need to know your surroundings. This game has never been about easy. And to clarify I never said use the sticks to find north. I said use them to mark your trails. Drop em like bread cru
  13. it would be game breaking. We might not know to much of the story so far but what we do know is we got smacked by a geo magnetic storm. So bye bye to the normal north pointing magnetic pull that a compass depends on.. not once did I say anything against an actual map.. I simply stated please don't make it or implement the typical hand holding type. and as for the stick placements.. Agreed they point the same way but an exploit? How so. and next.. I was not trying to attack you nor rip you apart. I'm simply going off what information the game devs already provided us with. The sl
  14. Survival isn't fast paced nor can we just look at somthing and magically know its condition so here what I'm suggesting. maybe at the very least on stalker mode take away the items condition % and add in a item view/inspection This way its not just right in your face but you really need to check out your gear before leaving on your next adventure.. take the knife for instance you can rotate the knife a full 360 and check out the blade.. You clearly can see that the blade is flat or dinged slightly ( 30 - 40 % ).. You then take out your whetstone sharpen it up and inspect it
  15. well currently you can like previously stated "cut" the meat by canceling what your doing.. and the meat decoys are already severely broken as is.. You eat 95% of that deer steak.. You then use the last 5% as a decoy.. When you drop the meat it still shows/acts like it was at 100%.
