  1. Well I liked your story I had to go camp there for an evening too.
  2. Before I report this I want to ask if anyone else is experiencing this.... 1. Hit windows key by mistake or alt-tab to another window (which pauses the game) then go back to the game and the graphics is frozen. Sound works, and I can move around blindly but the screen does not change. If I am near the door, I can exit out (by randomly rotating and clicking) but the screen remains the same. Frozen with a view of just standing inside the door. 2. Hit windows key by mistake. 3. Hit windows key by mistake. Grrrr! I hate my stupid laptop! *Sobs uncontrollably*
  3. Maybe related or maybe not but I get sound stuttering with a certain wind sound. I am working with support to try to fix it. Report it as a bug and maybe it will give a clue to the devs as to what is going on.
  4. Thank you Raph. Always enjoy the Milton Mailbag. One thing I wondered about... Player reputation. It seems that some players have a reputation equal to the number of posts. Are they really so popular? Or do they have a alternate account that they use to upvote themselves? Are you able to tell? Seems that most players have about 20% upvote to posting so a 110% upvote to number of posts seems fake
  5. The can opening thing when placed next to a fire is not a glitch. It will warm your can of food. You can place tea and coffee too to warm it up. Click on it when warm to eat or drink.
  6. "or (c) you came across as rude..." LOL. Yep. No rudeness needed here. Good for you Raph and HInterland to keep rudeness as unacceptable.
  7. I keep noticing new things as I move to each region. I expect PV to be equally awesome once I finish with TWM. I love PV! Thanks for the spelling. My brain simply can't remember how to spell these Greek or whatever words. Nor English for that matter.
  8. Have you noticed the new bird sounds? The wind? The sky? Today I stood on my porch on TWM hut during a raging blizzard and notice that the snow blowing is exactly how it is IRL. Then the wind died down and the snow fall turned from heavy to light with the distance view coming from near to far exactly as IRL. Good job Hinterland! You know exactly how a Canadian winter with (cant spell apocolpis?) would be like. If you are from a warm country, welcome to the Great White North This is what it is like in winter in Canada in some places. In the game lore something happened to the atmosphere so that everything became cold so that even southern British Columbia became extremely cold. We don't have blizzards in real life. Need to go far far north for that. But Canada is big, cold, dark, and has long dark nights.
  9. Blizzards! I didn't notice before with the 1.48 update because I was running through them in a panic to get back to base and I was more concerned with finding a revolver so I could shoot a wolf with it. Fast forward to 1.53 update and I am standing on the porch of TWM hut in a full blizzard raging outside and I am totally amazed at the quality of the snow effect raging around hut and me as I step out into it. So much better quality visual effects! Good on you Hinterland! Keep fixing the little bugs and ignore the rage quitters :)
  10. What did you do to the sky? It is absolutely awesome! I did not really notice for a bit because I was running from blizzards but when I got to CH and a chance to stand on the porch at sunset I really noticed the refinements. The colors are fantastic and there is no gradients like before. Sunrise is smooth like silk. And the aurora is so much better. I put my laptop on the coffee table and wife an I just watched it for an hour while sipping wine. It was awesome before but you buffed it to the max. How did you improve the visuals so much? It is like a whole new experience.
  11. I'm talking about the clothing that I wear and not the general decay settings for items in the world. I would like to be able set a high decay rate for clothing on a custom game so that I can use all that cloth in the world, burn through my repair kits, force me to craft guts into fishing line, use all my metal to make hooks, make me run back to PV or MT to get more cloth, and have something to do late game before starting over. I am currently in a 300+ day run going for level 5 achievement on everything and mending skill is far behind everything else so I think a bit more balance on the need to mend would be good. Of course I could mend everything from 99% to 100 but that is not how I play. Seems silly. So I only mend when it is about 80% or less. In the same way I don't start a fire just to get more skill, or shoot a deer just to get rifle skill. Anyway this post is for the Devs and not for the usual like or dislike arguments that the Big Opinions have, I know Hinterland reads everything here and will take everything in to account as to how they want the game to work. Thanks Hinterland! Best game ever!
  12. I have seen 3 times now that a deer I shot runs around like mad then resumes the normal behavior. This is after the update. The first time was in PV. It runs off and I try to follow but PV is so big that it gets out of sight so I zigzag the hay farm area looking for crows to tell me where it dropped. A game hour or two I spot a walking deer over by the barn, and I am hungry so I need a kill, so I saunter over to get me a new kill and find the other one later.... when it drops dead. Its my original deer. Next time was in TWM. Shot a deer on the lake with the bad aiming system but I got splatter so I know it was hit. It runs off over a hill. I follow and find a deer just walking normally. Again I am hungry so I shoot it. It runs off. I follow around a hill and find another deer walking normal. So I shoot it. I'm pretty sure it is the same deer because there is only one spawn on the lake and nothing else around until the wing area. Anyway I assume the aiming is the problem because of the new rifle sights. Third time after aiming is fixed I find a deer up at the lookout in CH. I don't need meat but it is right there and I want to up my revolver skill so I pop him from up close. It runs off like mad. I check my stats to make sure I had a hit. I go check the blood splatter. Sure enough... a hit. I run to follow it which is easy because it is following the road back and forth. There is a blood trail. I lose sight for a bit but I can hear it up a slope (of course they like to go where you will get a guaranteed sprain) running around. Then the running stops. I peak around a rock outcrop and see it casually strolling down the slope, pausing to scratch the ground and eat as they are prone to do. So I crouch to hide from it and start to follow it to see what is going on. Once on the road it starts to return to the lookout area and as I get on to its path I can see blood trail so I definitely hit it, it is the same deer, and it is bleeding out. So why has it not keeled over by now? I shot it early in the morning about sunrise plus 1 hour. It wandered about bleeding until about 2hrs before sunset with me watching, until it finally keeled over and died. So has behavior changed now? Used to be that you shoot deer. It runs for an hour then keels over hopefully within sight of where you followed it,
  13. Thanks Raph for your openness to all the questions asked. I think your game studio is awesome and what you have produced is top of the line. I have never loved a game. Until this. What game can you just stand on the porch and feel the beauty and emptiness of the long dark?
  14. It's full on dead of winter for me. And getting colder.... and darker....
  15. Ok, I have played a few regions now since the update. Now I'm standing on my porch in CH looking at a fantastic slow sunset and thinking the sky is different than before. Cant quite say what, but the colors are more vibrant maybe? The clouds are more cloudlike? The upper sky is more skylike? In Milton, at Grey Mom's porch at dusk, the sounds of the bird calls seemed new. More types of birds, and you could tell if they were left or right or behind or near or overhead or off in the forest. The aroura is better I think. It seems more refined and fluid. The breath is better? less angular? Not intrusive at all for a cold climate Canadian like me. So many little things that I cant quite place my finger on. Thanks Hinterland for your devotion to detail and quality. I have over 2100 hour in this game many of which hours are just standing and watching the weather you have created so well.
