  1. yes, so, even after the most recent update, episode 3 and what not.. still no music, even when i load up the game, that classic piano theme that would play on the menu is no longer there.. am i really the only one experiencing this?
  2. i started a new game in mystery lake and there's still, no music, and this after reinstalling the game.. dunno
  3. been in pleasant valley for a couple in game weeks now, and i just realized, there is no musical presence at all.. zero.. no more stings at sunrise, or midnight, any times at all.. i tried reinstalling my game thinking it was a bug or something, since there was music both in mystery lake and coastal highway for the hundreds of days while i was in those regions before here.. i tried briefly googling the internet and looking around the forum for similar search query or phrases, but nothing jumped out.. is there anyone who could fill me in on why it's like this, i really miss the music.. thanks guys.
  4. THE LONG DARK | NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE hey everybody! this is my first long dark video, and it's a concept i've been sitting on for quite some time, what with needing some very specific shots and gameplay moments, the idea took longer to gestate and refine than i expected.. most importantly, i wanted the short to be in line with the game's tone, beautiful and brutal, mostly efficient yet sometimes meandering.. essentially, this is a distillation of a few of my many sandbox survival story moments into a cinematic short, a hunting trip gone awry with a fateful bear attack, and what happens in the mind of my avatar during her bear trauma induced black-out.. any criticism and commentary is of course welcome and appreciated, it's why i brought it to this forum and community in the first place, you guys know and understand this game best.. thanks for watching!
  5. I've tried searching around for a bit now within the forums and elsewhere on the internet, but can't seem to find an answer.. I'm looking for a Moose in Mystery Lake.. now, every sandbox I've done prior, there has a moose here, albeit only one, sometimes at Trappers, sometime's next to Allen's Cave along the creek, but I'm having no such luck this time around.. I've mapped probably 95% of ML region, but no sign of Moose anywhere.. Does TLD's probability roll on wildlife spawns really go to nil? or is it just for the moose? And to that end, what about bears (I did find one bear at Unnamed Pond so no problem there) ? I'm trying to go to Coastal Highway but really would like a satchel before I move. Not a huge deal if I need to move on without it, I'm sure I'll find one later, I've just been searching everywhere for the last few game days and doesn't seem to a Moose this time and now I'm curious.. Voyageur Difficultly BTW.
  6. hiiii. have had this game since forever, but i never truly "got into it", i think i survived 10 days my first ever run but was eaten by a bear.. i recently saw the retail trailer on youtube and thought, hm, let's see how the game is these days and i started voyageur on ML just to check things out, and, wow.. i mean, for sure these cooking mechanics are new (to me), also, i think there's 2 new maps here? maybe 3? also, i should have read the patch note history, but i'm still lowkey mad that you guys knew there was a rogue moose on the loose and didn't let me know. don't worry, i got him, but my poor heart.. the art style has always been legendary in it's relative graphical simplicity but there's a level of polish and cleanness to everything now that's awe inspiring.. anyways, i'm at day 50 in that same voyageur run, and yeah, i want to go for the 500 day achievement, but i think i'm going to restart on stalker.. there's so much loot and resources to manage, i'm a bit distracted and overwhelmed.. i can already tell i'm of the more nomadic play-style, and yet, the packrat part of my mind won't let me leave all these valuable things alone when i see them, at least, i have to move it all to my home base, so it's basically just been 50 days of consolidating everything in ML to Trappers, and with the wildlife i've run into just moving around the map, i've already crafted deer boots, rabbit mitts, moose satchel, wolf jacket, about to make a bear skin bed roll soon as i find the second one.. i feel like a king and not sure if i earned it exactly, i dunno, i think i'll go map FM and practice real survival living and give the forge a test drive, then restart on that stalker run.. not that i haven't had close calls, but my brushes with death have been all self-induced dangers, like trying practice archery on moving wolf targets at 100m out, or climbing ropes too tired and encumbered and falling off, how about the time i forgot to treat food poisoning i got from eating a mouldy granola bar and went to bed.. for 9 hours... lmao. i'm such a survival scrub.. however you cut it though, this game is one of the best things i've ever experienced and i recommend it to everyone.. it's a form of meditation for me, and i especially love how the survival mode allows for events and stories to unfold that feel organic and unique, as if i'm the only person to ever experience such a thing in the history of TLD players.. congrats to everyone at hinterland for nailing such a thoughtful and honest game, it's a masterpiece.. peace oot.
