    1000+ Days

    Difficulty doesn't matter. I am glad you've reached a goal for yourself
  2. I have wished for this as well, but it's quite minor for me. If people are concerned about doing it with a giant backpack well then simply put a weight limit like the mountaineering ropes. Honestly you could just put in a scaled system which increases the time it takes as weight increases. But this is all sounding really complicated now for very little benefit. A simple system for it would be nice though.
  3. Yes I do get the feeling you try to accept and adapt. Which is fine. Yeah at some point I would be interested to know what sort of things you would like to see change/improve.
  4. I've never actually quartered an animal because it takes too long, but from what I recall the bears I have killed have been around 35kg or so?
  5. Just posting again because this keeps being relevant. I've been awake for days on my current game because I cannot sleep. No bedroll. It's getting easier to just never sleep though. Just need to keep weight down so you can move and you can just keep going and going. This may be a problem that never needs to get fixed for me as sleep just becomes a waste of time. edit---------- Oh, right, minus the fact that I can't go up and down ropes....that's an issue edit2---------- Yeah, screw it. I am stuck wandering around hushed river valley, unable to climb because I can't sleep anywhere. I am just going to put this game away for a while. Hopefully at some point either this game can be modded to allow for bedroll crafting or will get official support for such a feature.
  6. Is there anything about this game you think could use improvement manic? Every post I see you make says the game is fine the way it is.
  7. If anything I think you take too much damage from starvation already. Same with being thirsty. While I am playing the as the dead sleep challenge I literally have to wake up for a drink break from sleeping otherwise I will start dying from thirst. It's already crazy. The problem with the game, if you call it a problem, is the calories and health are largely interchangeable. If you make the health really easy to get that means calories are really easy to get. My personal solution is to play custom games where you simply don't regenerate life when you sleep. This makes staying fed important as you very often need more health. I tend to be a fan of longer term things where you can see problems developing and have a significant amount of time to work on a solution. Something I would personally like to see is a body weight system where eating a calorie deficit eats into your body weight which over time produces all sorts of negative effects, and eventually death. But maybe that's too complicated and would take too much work. Maybe that could be something I could mod when the game opens up.
  8. There is so much loot I’ve never seen in this game. That’s a neat sweater. On low loot settings I’ve found a revolver. I am not sure if that’s the same as interloper.
  9. Just to mention, recently I tried the new challenge and so I had sprains enabled. I was taking pain meds but nothing was happening. I figured out finally that I actually need to select the pain or the pills do nothing. While I do agree that pain meds should generally heal pain, but I also don't think you should have to select pain when taking them. Once you know you know and can deal with it, but I feel it's just one of those strange things that I think should change. I don't feel it adds anything or makes sense.
  10. May I ask where that much birch bark spawns? I would love to know for my game with sleep regen off.
  11. Four legs aren't better or worse. There are tradeoffs. Four legs have much better stability, for one. Also to kinda relate a few of the comments, humans may be slower when sprinting short distances, but we can eventually outrun anything(minus maybe an elephant?). Part of this is efficient movement, part sweat. Probably some other things I don't know.
  12. I can't try it because I don't live in a place where the high for the entire year is -10. Just to go through your list, maggots are fly larve. Insects don't operate in sub zero temperatures so there would be no maggots. Second point about bacteria/fungi....they don't grow either. Now as to your third point, hard and dry. Well yes it will become hard since it is frozen and I am on the fence about dry. Freezer burn is when the moisture from food escapes, but if you bury it in the snow would that prevent it from drying out? I am not sure. Dum_Gen already linked about nutritional value. Just to mention though, I do have some year+ old meat in my freezer that was frozen raw(so plenty of bacteria). It is sealed, but nothing is wrong with it. That's the closest I can get to the long dark.
  13. no, freezer burn makes things taste bad. You can still eat them just fine. Unless you have evidence to say otherwise of course. I do know that people have eaten mammoth fairly recently and that is quite old.
  14. If something like this were done then I would like to be able to put meat into peanut butter jars and such to reduce wolf scent.
  15. You can just turn the wolves off in custom games. Or turn them to low...whatever works. Maybe that's not an option if you're playing story. I do think that wolf behaviour is pretty strange now. The second you aim they go crazy, whether they see you or not, whether a wolf would even understand or not. Then they start strafing around like someone playing team fortress. It's really strange.
  16. Since food shouldn't be spoiling anyways(it's all frozen), I don't have an issue with it sitting for years at 0% and still being edible.
  17. I haven't read 95% of this thread, but I think in the end it comes down to control. Hinterland wants all the control, customers want all the control, valve wants all the control, etc etc. The real objective is to find a balance that most people can agree with. Personally I haven't purchased a game on steam in years I think because it has too much control, telling me I require an internet connection to reliably load a game and also allowing devs to force patch in loot boxes and other things. Most of the control is with companies and not customers and they know their customers will accept it so they stay there where it's comfortable. I am mostly talking about AAA publishers here, but all the CEOs know gamers are generally pretty weak. That's why they keep screwing people over and they know the people they're slapping in the face will beg for more. It's pathetic, honestly. All the people calling for boycotts because of human rights abuse or customer exploitation just eat up that next call of duty or diablo. I bet 98% of the people who purchased that WC3 abomination will be yelling that they won't be buying D4 because of the real money auction house and macrotransactions as they pre-order the game having long forgotten that blizzard supports murdering people.
  18. The game is not set up so that you can live forever. While you may be able to prolong the inevitable you will eventually die because things like metal, cloth, and saplings are realistically a limited resource. Matches will be one of the first things to run out if you're using them as a regular fire tool, so using the lens will keep you alive a little longer. After that I would imagine ammo would be a major concern as bullets and arrows are limited, so snaring/rocking rabbits as much as possible would be next. Eventually though you will run out of cloth so using as much animal clothing as possible is important. Animal clothing requires metal though which you will run out of. As master_arne said, beach combing is your only real chance for long term survival as the non-renewables can spawn there. Eventually you will probably be naked in -80 degree weather though, relying on massive amounts of wood to keep you warm as you collect rabbits for food as you can no longer fish or hunt other animals. At this point you're pretty much doomed. If you play perfectly, you will slowly burn through your thousands of kilograms of wood and food as you sit there naked, every piece of metal and cloth in the game consumed. And as life ebbs, terrible vistas of emptiness will reveal themselves before you finally fade into the long dark.
  19. So I recently have been trying out the as the dead sleep challenge and I have been unable to find a bedroll. For hours and hours. I feel unable to complete the objectives without one as it involves rope climbing. Perhaps if I knew the maps better I could manage without one but I do a lot of wandering around trying to figure out where to go. I am still wishing we could make one....
  20. I think the show was decent. Some things were good, some things not so much. A few things didn't make any sense at all... Anyways I will watch the next season assuming it is going to be made. I hope the good things stay good and they make some improvements.
  21. I am an ethical vegan and I snap rabbit necks left and right. Doesn't bother me in the least
  22. I imagine this will likely end up in court in various countries. Not specifically for hinterland, but just generally with companies trying to control which PC people play their games on.
