  1. I mean ... I'll still be playing. ;-) Sounds great, Raphael. Thank you and thanks to the team for all your hard work. Good luck with the fine-tuning and QA phase! -H
  2. T'is I, brother, t'is I. Post titles should be editable. Maybe since your post contained a poll? I dunno. -H
  3. I think you should change the title of the post to something other than "Should this game have multiplayer?" if your objective is to have an honest, just-for-fun hypothetical discussion that acknowledges the reality that multiplayer isn't happening. As you stated in your original post, Raphael and co. have consistently and repeatedly shot this idea down. Here's just one article (containing interview responses from Raph) from among countless possible ones covering the topic, for anyone interested. https://www.gamewatcher.com/news/the-long-dark-multiplayer-mod-co-op So, if you wanted to ask "What would multiplayer look like, if it existed?" as your poll / discussion question, that would be cool. But you're not. You're asking "Should the game have multiplayer?" which makes the subsequent "This is just a hypothetical, I know multiplayer isn't ever happening" seem disingenuous, and makes it sound more like you're trying to get a bandwagon going. Which, *if* it were true... would be pretty uncool. And look, ask anyone who knows my history dealing with /r/thelongdark... I hate toxicity as much as the next guy. I'm just being real w/ you. -H
  4. Not to hop on this bandwagon too hastily, because I like most of the new system ... but as for chance to hit / HOW to hit ... my shooting is the worst it's ever been in TLD. The front sight seems uncharacteristically wide. I know I'm used to that fine point, but to have it replaced by something so broad and flat-topped is confusing. I've hit one target that I've intentionally shot at... of about 20 shots I've attempted. And that includes one of my classic "shoot at a wolf's face while it's charging" sure-shots. I missed. So far, "Your misses will make more sense than they used to" and "You'll sprain less than you used to" are not working out for me at all. "But the mechanics are deeper" isn't doing it as a justification for either at this point. Maybe I'll adjust, but as of right now, I'm so annoyed that I'm posting about it here. Which isn't normal. -H
  5. Me too, but I thought it best to stop short of putting words in others' mouths. People nowadays love to take statements from 3 months, 3 years, even 3 decades ago and assume they're still gospel truth. Sentiments change. General consensus, though, so far seems to be that it's highly unlikely to happen. :-) -H
  6. Raphael and team are not much for the word "never," but let's just say there have been multiple strong assertions aimed at steering players away from hoping for multiplayer. Maybe actually try the game sooner than later? Worst case, you wouldn't like it, but you'd stop yourself from waiting around for something that's not likely to ever come. And you might have a lot more fun than you were expecting. :-) -H
  7. Remember when the last update's preview had an ambiguous description for what turned out to be the Well Fed buff? If their plan was to add variety, that's what they'd say. The fact that it's just one item implies it's something special or unique compared to existing food items. -H
  8. *non-chalant post-2018 bump* (Pretty pretty plz, @Raphael van Lierop... <3<3<3) -H
  9. *quietly looks up from tidying his shelter* Huh. Could have sworn I heard something just now. ... *shrugs and goes back to arranging matches* -H PS. Awesome idea. Holler if you found one.
  10. I'm aware it was touched on in their Reddit AMAs. I wanted to give them a chance to speak to it again here, free of a separate or social-media-specific context. I'm not much for the reddit wing of the TLD community. They espouse and protect toxicity way too much in there. -H
  11. One of the most compelling — and surely daunting — ambitions the team has ever disclosed to the community has been making The Long Dark's sandbox have all four seasons instead of just one. Is this still on internal roadmaps, and can you talk about some of the challenges and opportunities it would present? -H
