  1. Just found a polaroid in the Rocky Refuge next to the backpack by the fireplace. This is a rocky hill in Milton Basin.
  2. Yes, I've also found one in the Quonset Garage behind the counter. On my "main" pre-existing save.
  3. There's a helpful thread pinned to this part of the forum:
  4. I used to jam a creditcard-sized metal bottle opener between the keys "2", "3" and "W" while I kept "W" pressed for a second. 😎 This is a very valuable tip! By default you have to press Z (autowalk) or S (backwards) to cancel autowalk, but rushing to put down your drink to avoid autojumping off a cliff may have negative effects on your keyboard and other surroundings 😁 It almost happened to me while walking up the hill towards the transition mine from PV to CH. After that I've decided to change the keybind to the mouse.
  5. I really like this update, great job! Autowalk - I've really been waiting for this, but it's strange now after >400 hrs playing without it^^ Spray markings - this is a great idea, especially because you can see most of them on the map. I can imagine how important it is for new players. I had plans to finally explore HRV anyway, so I'm really looking forward to test this feature. But it's true, it's kinda weird that you can summon a spray can without having one in your inventory, even if you are not able to spray on anything then. Mapping - I like the way this is working now.
  6. The Dev Diary - May 2020 contains some info you might find helpful...
  7. The admin wrote a short comment about the uncertain future of Milton Mailbag some time ago: https://hinterlandforums.com/forums/topic/21075-question-thread-milton-mailbag/page/49/?tab=comments#comment-191787
  8. Did Nvidia really advertise TLD on their service without knowledge and consent of Hinterland? And you do not see that it's wrong? The other thing is that the owner of the intellectual property has the right to decide in which way he wants his property to be distributed. Especially when they haven't been asked. Is it that so difficult to understand?

    No Ammo

    Isn't it possible to repair the weapons on the milling machine inside the cannery in BI? But I think you need to wait for an aurora to do it.
  10. Hello Raphael, I have short question: shortcut inside BI Cannery - was it all a misunderstanding?
  11. Moonrise over Bleak Inlet, shot from the cave on the little island near the cannery
  12. You'll find it here: https://store.steampowered.com/app/690180/Music_for_The_Long_Dark__Volume_One/
  13. This week I also really hoped for a short replay from the studio if this was all a misunderstanding. I still hope it wasn't and there is a short cut, a place to mount a rope to... I saw a couple of interesting spots, these haven't been mentioned yet - I think... next to the last building before the cannery (my favourite): behind the cannery:
  14. 717d 18d 28m days on pilgrim right now. Still so many things i want to do with my survivor. Currently he's exploring BI. Learning to make bullets. He's still not brave enough to visit HRV. My previous survivor made it to day 45 or so. It was the very first time I was in the SE CH area. He broke into ice in CH trying to get to the south eastern part of Misanthropes Home Island. He made it back to the road and the Waterfront Cottages, but I decided he should cut some wood before getting into a cabin to have something for a fire to get dry... not a good idea in wet clothes.
  15. Do you see the matches in this pic? It's next to the cabin WSW from the Lower Raven Falls. (Pilgrim mode)
  16. I'm probably not up to date, but was the Deadman Challenge a speed run of a kind or was it about surviving as long as possible? I'd thought it was the second one. If I am right, then speedrunning this challenge is contradicting what the Deadman Challenge was all about. Maybe someone should try and survive 100 (or more) days until completing this challenge by visiting the last grave? Maybe that's why the longest time is being recorded in this challenge? PS-I'd love to see the vids of the speedruns as soon as I find some time. I've already started yesterday. There is so much to learn f

  18. I'm on Pilgrim, so no hassle with the wolfs. But I've seen them near the lookout and the pier. I do not think you can aviod them when going to visit Bleak Inlet. Aurora seems to occure quite often on Pilgrim. Didn't have to wait long to get the door opened. The illumination of the workshop is quite impressing to me. Disco time at the workshop: Spoiler!
  19. I'm really enjoying the new region. It's a bit cold here when it's clear and windy sometimes (-30°C)... Sunset at the radio tower:
  20. Just saw the videoclip. I am absolutely excited! Have a nice Christmas & New Year Break!

    4DON Too Easy?

    Interesting ideas indeed, Enigma. But on day 4 you have around -60°C at some point and you can't see past 10 meters. You can't compare the situation to day 1.
  22. For me it was -60°C outside feel. So it had to be a big fire^^ It's warmer inside, so the fire you need there doesn't need to be that big. They said be near a fire, they didn't say how big it has to be 😎
  23. With no fear on day 1 I really enjoyed this event. Last year I was too afraid of whatever on day 1 and had a bit panic before day 4 started. You maybe remember the speculations about what was going to happen because of the blizzard striking on Great Bear Island. After I got the 4 day batch, I went on a walk through the blizzard. Starting in Quonset, tried to catch some fish but they seem to be gone. At least I've found a pumkin pie! Slept a bit at sort log. Then went on to Jackrabbit Island, where my char found redemption. This one is seconds before he
  24. I've just managed to sleep a couple of hours outside near the log sort. Had to do a 11 hrs fire to keep me warm^ ^

    4DON Too Easy?

    Why should the game do it for you? Im playing 90% sandbox mode, I make up my own stories and quests at the time that I decide. So is 4DON. You can decide whatever you like to do. Loot all 4 regions on day 1? Go out on day 2 & 3 to have fun with the wolfes? Travel through the blizzard at -60°C? Please do not complain when you decide to stay in, you've had the option to do something else
