  1. Once I was hunting a wolf and this demonic sounding wolf howled super loud like it was right behind me and freaked me out. I stopped dead in my tracks and all the animals were gone after that. Never knew if it was a game mechanic, or just one of those scary bugs.
  2. Hello all, the name is Swope and I’ve got another idea for The Long Dark. Just wanted to say thanks for the awesome game😊, now for the suggestion of my four ideas. - Insulated Cars 1. Cars as we know it act as a way to protect ourselves from animals and a way to sleep. The only problem is that cars offer little to no armor from the cold (which makes since). But what if we could cover the windows of the vehicle with, say cardboard, or even a blanket to better insulate and make a more adequate place to sleep. - Beds 2. Beds are my wing man, they offer me sleep when I’m starving, playing cards when I’m tired, and as well as some protection from the cold. Beds are great, but almost every bed is the same, as in insulation values of course. Maybe like the clothing system, their can be a variety of bed sheets and blankets, or even animal hides to better arm yourself against the cold. And maybe even be able to make a makeshift bed from bed sheets to be able to sleep on the floor. - Misc ideas 3. Light sources are great, but what about a primitive one? A stick on fire might be too primitive, so how about being able to make candles from the fat of animals, A more controlled way to illuminate the area, but the down fall is how weak the flame can be, meaning sprints or winds could knock the flame out. 4. What if we could be the hero and save someone’s life, maybe their could be encounters with people, like a person being attacked by wolves, or a person crying for help and holding onto a cliff edge and about to fall. Would it be possible to have encounters were we wouldn’t just be taking care of ourselves, but as well as another person? That’s all for me, until next time sincerely- - Swope25
  3. Hello all, I come here with another idea, will it be possible to add some sort of clothing system for beds? It sounds weird I know, but right now almost every bed offers the same amount of warmth bonus when you sleep or pass the time. For instance, being able to find better blankets or pillows to help keep warm at night, do you think something like this could ever be considered? And about cars, you can recover rest inside of them, but it’s almost certain death if you sleep through the whole night in a car, what if you could lay some blankets down in the back seat and cover the car windows with cardboard or even reclaimed wood to keep more of the heat inside, or even turn a car into a make shift hunting stand, meaning you would have to bust the windows and bear the wind while you sit and wait fir your prey. That’s all for me, have a good one and keep up the good work. sincerely- Swope25
  4. I had once turned a old pair of socks into a makeshift pair of fingerless glove. (Mainly because I forgot my good gloves during winter in Missouri) And I got to thinking, what if you could turn this type of clothing, into something new since you can’t find it or are in the verge of freezing. For instance, using the extra pants you have you take the denim off of the pants to make a strange (warm?) scarf, or to make a janky looking vest, or like I talked about, making sock gloves. Basically your turning one piece of clothing into something else, a bare minimum but enough to keep you from getting frostbite in your fingers or face. Would you ever considering adding a new style of homemade crafted clothing into the game? Thanks for your time and have a lovely day. -sincerely- swope25
  5. You do have a point, but I figured that it would be more interesting if you had consequences to dong a task wrong, kinda like if you tried to make a shirt but stitched it wrong, so it offers less protection against the cold or the wind.
  6. will there be any other mini games like the safe? I know there was discussion about interactions with lighting a fire, but is there anything else that you have planned? Maybe like forging the scrap knife, having to hit points of the metal to make a better blade with better durability if you hit it correctly with the heavy hammer. Or anything thing to do with fishing, interactive gun cleaning, or crafting items. Anyways I believe I have spoke my mind, keep up the good work and have a nice day. Sincerely -— Swope25
