  1. I find it likely they want to do it the way they did for the achievement stuff. Hinterland has already shown they don't want to have them in custom games because they're worried people could make really easy games and get them. If they put winter's embrace in a custom game they would disable achievements and then a lot of people would be unhappy.
  2. Did it change how you play at all? Or was it more of the same but it took longer to get to positive temps?
  3. Yeah, and I don't think it's a mistake to make the game accessible to everyone. I encourage it generally. Apart from modding, I do wish we had more control over custom games though so us hardcore people could get what we want. I guess when you've been playing games for 30 years that's what happens.
  4. I think I am remembering incorrectly, from what I am reading. I should find that episode and see what he actually said. Maybe I just misunderstood at the time.
  5. I think finding a bottle in hushed River would be difficult. While it is true all Canadians bring a litre bottle of maple syrup with them on hiking trips it's also true that it is the first item to be consumed, likely within the first 5-10mins of the trip.
  6. There are certainly enough animals though. I thought any snow that had a slightly pink color should be avoided for giardia? I mean yellow too, yes. And brown especially. I am not an expert or anything. I just seen to remember the pink thing from survivor man
  7. May be a coveted maple syrup cache. I hear Canadians are a strange people...
  8. Yeah. I wish I could cut the number of wolves by like 10-20X but make them much deadlier somehow.
  9. seems like a cake walk to me, but I have stopped playing after around six in-game days. I don't think I will go back.
  10. Does anyone find the temperature drop to change anything for them at all? I thought this might be interesting but after playing some I found, compared to my usual settings, that the cold was less of a threat than I am used to. Here is why The indoor temp drop of 10 degrees isn't enough to change anything. With a few minor items, indoor temps feel above freezing and aren't an issue. You just regenerate any life lost to the cold overnight anyways. Sure you might lose 30% of your life harvesting that animal but when you can just sleep that back overnight it's nothing. I even went down to about 20% life and got hypothermia but I was back to full life and completely fine in around a day and a half. Since you have to sleep 10+ hours a day anyways this hardly has any effect at all. I am used to playing with sleep regen off and minimum awake regen. If I lose 30% of my life to cold in those games it takes days to recover so the cold ends up being far more deadly despite it being 10 degrees higher. I know I am probably atypical here but that's my experience. I still think it would be interesting to have outdoor temperatures have an effect on indoor temps. I think you would need to add waking up when it's cold though, otherwise people will be "forced" to sleep in one hour chunks which is just tedious.
  11. They've been adding new regions as time goes along. Whether we see either of those who knows but I wouldn't rule them out for the future.
  12. You mentioned wolf sounds hallucinations. I think it might be cool that instead of just hearing sounds that aren't there that some sounds could actually be replaced. So for example instead of random growls our character would hear sounds that are similar to wolves when the wind is blowing in the trees. I do have issue with the OCD/ADHD things though. As far as I know people don't just become those things. I also have other issues with other things. However I do think it's an interesting topic to explore. I think in general I would like to have things be a little more subtle than what you suggest.
  13. You sound like me. All the things you list are exactly what I would shift the focus away from. I think we are going to have to wait for modding to be added in before we can change the game to what better suits us. Hopefully it opens enough that I can write in my own indoor equations+variables for cold and such, but we will see. edit------------ One thing I was considering doing is simply disabling wolves. Even on low settings wolves are all over and they're extremely easy to kill which means they're an easy source of food. The only issue I have with that is that they are a potential source of damage so I am not sure how that would work out overall. If you decide to try that let me know how it feels.
  14. @ManicManiacI don't think there is anything wrong with being incorrect about something. There is a big difference between knowingly spreading false information(lying) and unknowingly spreading it(being incorrect). You now have additional information.
  15. Yup, and I was just giving facts so that you know you're spreading false information. Fact is the one time I went through the effort to actually see if it was hinterland or gog taking forever, it was hinterland.
  16. @ManicManiacLast time I actually spent the time to look into things it was hinterland that didn't release the update for over a month. You can still say it's a GoG issue, but it's also a hinterland issue. Sorry, they can sometimes not be perfect just like the rest of us mortals. But that wasn't what I meant... I thought it wouldn't come out on GoG because the event cannot be force patched out. It's one of the reasons I like GoG. If a dev force patches in microtransactions and such I don't need to download that downgrade. Anyways thank you for letting non-steam users try out the event
  17. I know this won't come to GoG but that -10 degree drop and longer lasting blizzards sounds pretty interesting to play with and see how it feels.
  18. I think the question is what do you enjoy? Personally I like seeing death slowly take hold so I turn off sleep health regen and have awake regen on low so it takes a long time to heal.
  19. I don't mind the cave darkness so much since that has been my experience in real life, but the indoor darkness is pretty bad. I really do wish it matched better with the outside light.

    That could be interesting, each bed having a sleep quality which can be changed by a number of factors.
  21. Too many buttons do the same thing. Having a button to interact with items would completely solve this and many other related issues. Unfortunately I don't think that's going to change. Maybe if they open up modding enough?
  22. Yes, I already know you think that. I just wanted to mention that the information was presented in a way that caused me to think it would not drain my health. If the devs are happy with that then that's fine, I know now. A minor change to the wording could make it objectively more clear for people who don't know though. I figured they may want to know for any new players.
  23. Just a minor thing I want to mention, the description on food poisoning says "you will get weaker until it's cured" or something similar. The reality is it drains your health, not your stamina or weight limit or anything. The one and only time I've gotten food poisoning I read that and wasn't horribly worried. I went to sleep and died from I think close to full health. I do play with sleeping health regen turned off so it's likely far far more deadly for me than 99% of other players but I really felt that the description was not accurate and the effect is not the same as real life. I just wasn't expecting it at all and a simple wording change could have let me know that sleeping would result in death.
  24. I would be shocked if there was loot there considering they actively discourage people from climbing around
