  1. i might be getting better with learning how to get the perfect angle on shots and getting better with the sway and such but i dont think i can ever be drop a gun bullet goes all around the world and kills a wolf thats about to pounce kind of good. But thanks for the vote of confindence ^.^
  2. Ok Ya i noticed hitting rabbits became a tad bit more harder no matter the means but has the hti box changed for all of the animals in game? I was just walking around with the rifle on coastal highway and saw a wolf off in the distance. Just say screw it and fired and i hit and killed it far enough away that it was a spec? same with a deer at best i hit its antler yet it dropped dead and with a bear well hard to miss a bear but i somehow managed to hit it with an accidental revolver discharge. either i found heat seeking 1 shot ammo or animals are way to easy to kill and the hit boxes have gotten bigger. anyone else exeperince this as well? or am i just going more crazy?
  3. @ThePancakeLady pretty much thats what my problem is. for me it just happens more with entering and exiting. But it pretty much randomly freezes up. Its not as bad as you as needing to force exit steam. I had a feeling it was either the last update for the long dark or with steam. I have had problems with steam lately so now im 100% sure its on steams end that this is happening. The long dark is not the only game ive had problems playing games with.
  4. I have been having a very similar problem. either i freeze up after enter/exiting a building and have to hit my windows key to unfreeze or after i enter/exit a building i can take a few steps then it freezes and win key to fix. Even if i dont enter/exit a building pretty much any transistion it has a chance of doing this.

    4DON Bug?

    Did not know that. Thanks. I normally tend to store stuff and not just drop it on the ground (outside of stuff that needs to cure).
  6. well so far i have gotten so good with killing wolves in 1 shot i actually have a stock pile of cured wolf pelts. Currently up to 40 wolf pelts and 2 wolf jackets. Only been mualed 2 times only cuz i ran into 2 wolves that did not growl or bark or anything i went over a hill and boom attacked by 1 and the other was right around the corner on Coastal highway. Close to getting 5 cooking just off of all the wolf meat.

    4DON Bug?

    Found out something weird. I keep a cup of coffee tea rose hip and mushroom on me to reheat if needed. Well i dropped them to cook some meat from a couple of wolves i killed and i noticed something. they boiled while on the ground next to the stove after i started a fire in the stove. Has anyone else experienced that? I though stuff had to be put on the stove to cook/boil not be placed right next to it.
  8. I am having so much fun with episode 3. I was so excited for it that i did not sleep last night. I was sitting watching steam until that wonderful Update required poped up on the long dark. I have been playing all day and took my time. Took way more then 5 hours. I am playing episode 3 again now to ensure I see things i know for sure i missed. I do not see my self getting tired of playing epi 3. I hope that epi 4 and 5 are just as good if not better. I honestly see episode 3 alone as good as fallout new vegas and oblivion. Just a hair below skyrim godlyness. Hinterland have my babies! Edit: Curses forgot something....-clears throat- I am commander astrid and this is my favorite episode on the citadel...couldnt resist. Mixture of 2 of the best games. ^.^
  9. Well i just started a new inter run yesterday and lets just say its one weird and lucky thing after another. I of course got spawned on timberwolf mountain. Out of about 20 plays 13-15 of them have been on twm. Well this playthrough i said screw it and made my way up to the plane which took forever and i pretty much became best friends with death only to scrape by just by dumb luck. Made it to the top to grab the flare gun and anything not in the containers since you need the hacksaw for it and holy freaking crap guess what was on a box next to a container....the freaking hacksaw. So a fresh new save and i already managed to luck out and get one of the best stashes in game. I pretty much filled up on food made some water camped a night up top then made my way down. Nothing really happened to much other then 2 things to go with that hacksaw and stash within the first 5 days of play. I made my way to mystery lake to camp out since i lucked out on several rabbits and had some metal and could find some here to make fishing line and well. Got attacked by a wolf. I keep the flare gun locked cocked and ready to rock incase. Since i know i was about to get ripped to shreds i got ready to say good bye to my best run ever and just fired a shot from the flare gun. to my freaking surprise that un mistakable grown. I did not know you could kill wolves with a lucky headshot. I killed it with a flare gun O.o. So now i have tons of meat i cant eat persay. will keep a couple pieces on me to keep off the hunger even though the parasite risk but its worth it if i can keep my well fed just long enough to get to the station near the lake. well when i got near that train car my luck kept freaking going. a freaking moose. Guess what. Yep i somehow managed to kill the sucker with 3 headshots from the flare gun and using the you can get me here but here your ai goes into run away mode. I brought down a moose and a wolf with 4 total shots of a flare gun sadly 2 shots left but now i got food for a while and so close to getting the moose hide items. How the hell does any of this happen? Did anyone else know you could kill with the flare gun or that you could bring down a moose with 3 flare shots? I guess this run is the games way of saying sorry for the 13+ times spawning and killing you on twm here have some great freaking luck. im still sitting here like wtf what the hell happened. am i dreaming? anyone else ever had a few bad runs of survival then all of the sudden the next run every thing goes right and no matter what you try it seems to keep comming in aces for ya in that run? i think this is by far my best ever run and dont think ill ever top it unless hinterland adds it way more areas for the next 2 chapters and adds in a few more items.
  10. See. luck is a big part of this game. Either you get really lucky or you get freaking stuborn and pretty much when death is about to take you, you take a bite to eat or a swig and give death the middle finger. You, my friend got lucky and at the same time gave the grim reaper the finger and told it to kiss your butt lol. Lets hope that helps you enough to complete the challenge.
  11. Yes leave the area and search around. If you think you can do it and if you have the hacksaw. try getting up to the airplane on teh summit. Honestly to me that is the only way i found that i could get ahead of the curve in that challenge. If you can try mystery lake and des point. Ml for all the fish huts and buildings. If you are lucky there will be just that 1 item more then you use to get you over that hill to snow ball you into the finish line. But this is all from only my experience. I can not survive long on interloper due to those wolves bitting my ass all the time. So all i can say is good luck. If you do fail this time then i will make this suggestion to you. Play a custom survival. Turn the settings to interloper but turn off wolves and bears. have all the settings set to inter settings like finding stuff and wildlife. See if you can make it from mystery lake up to the airplane then to the gas station. If you can do that in a 10 day period with only the few things you get on inter then you will most likely be able to do the challenge. Thats how i practiced each challenge. made a custom run. turned off everything not related to the challenge and trying it and comming up with plans. The bear challenge learning the billy goat method helps. or as most others call it skyrim it up and learn to wall walk. the plane to lighthouse. turned off bear kept wolves on and pretty much learned to dodgeball it. dodge duck dive etc etc.
  12. Ya that challenge takes a while to get lucky enough to complete. Took me 3 tries before i pretty much goldielocks it and got it just right with items and such. Pretty much the only advice i can give is Go full interloper. Pretty much whiteout requires you to do a 100+ day interloper survival in a 30 day stock up challenge. If you have been able to get to 100+ days on inter then do everything you have done there on the challenge. If not watch a few youtube videos of long inter play throughs. If there is deer and wolves near by run by the deer to make them run into the wolves. Kill the wolves after they take down the deer. Saves ammo and grants tons of food. Outside of that pretty much dont stop moving. Only sleep/eat/drink if you have to. If you can and get lucky enough get a hacksaw and get up to the plane asap. that cache will pretty much grant you like 50% of what you need supply wise. also not sure if you can get into the hatches during challenges never tried it myself but if you can then besides the plane on timber mountain the survival hatches/bunkers are your other option of large amounts of items with pretty much 0 effort other then getting there. just remember if going after both the plane on the summit and the hatches to pretty much go with only water a hacksaw a few matches/other firestarters and enough sticks to light 3 campfires. to keep yourself light. the stick thing you can gather more if needed but pretty much leave everything at the gastation that is not needed to get from spot to spot.
  13. For me it was something simple. My biggest moment in survival mode so far is both a facepalm and omg wtf headbutt desk combo. Until my current playthrough i have yet to ever make it safely without save scumming or taking days (real days) To get to the summit of timberwolf mountain to the airplane for the supplies there. I have tried my hardest to learn the regions without using maps found online. Well my current playthrough i made it to the fishing hut and the house at i guess the base of the climb. I said screw it and looked at a timberwolf mountain map and saw my biggest mistake. I was pretty much going south and then all the way around the long way to the summit. I failed to see that the inlet to the pond the stream from a waterfall and such was pretty much the direct route. Looking out from the house i was going pretty much behind the house and all the way around when just up the stream (face the fish hut is one corner and the stream from the water fall is the other) I could have saved my self a lot of trouble and time and headaches if i went up that stream path. i am still kicking myself for that. Guess my ego of being a gamer and not needing to look online got the best of me. So i ask. What was the one thing you done in survival that pretty much kicked your ass and after finding out why made you face palm or made you kiss your keyboard really hard?
  14. I know tech speaking no one is alive on great bear but you in survival mode but with how that body is the axe and everything. to me if i had to guess he was choping the tree and didnt follow rule one of tree chopping in winter....Look up before chopping and kick the tree before as well to cause anything in branches to fall. all the snow on the body. Im guessing high enough branch had a lot of snow on it and he hit the tree and died from snow ball impact to the head. Edit. Or it forgot to put the lotion on the skin and got the hose again..
  15. I dont carry spares but i do store every piece of clothing i have in different areas. I try to keep it the same in all areas. Like the same protection even if not the same items. For just incase if i get attacked and clothing gets ruined or i need to warm up. I do the same with pretty much everything. Try to keep a can or 2 of soda or water a few cat tails enough wood for 2 hours of fire pretty much enough supplies at every location if possible if i need to tuck tail and run to re gain my footing.
