    2 problems with Survival mode.

    I play on the most hardcore settings available, and love survival mode. There are two things which need to be fixed though. Every new game you have to redo the tutorial. Chase the Mammoth, run from Sabertooth kill some goats ect. After completing it once it needs to start you at the village at the beggining of the game or just have the ability to make one save in survival mode. Also all keybinding and settings get reset after everygame even though I change them in the start menu. So to get to the actual start of the game it takes about 20 minutes of messing around. If these two things are fixed it would be absolutely amazing

    The new texture pack causes a lot of stuttering even though it still doesnt use more than 3 gb vram on 1080p, the new immersive bow ui setting sometimes causes the entire hud to disappear not just the crosshair, my tamed beast sometimes dont always follow me and disappear and have to summon them again, and sometimes they wont follow orders. These are the stuff I noticed the first 3 minutes I played.

    Okay, how do you load the texture pack? I don't see an option on UPlay OR on Steam, and on Steam it refuses to load when checked. What's going on??

    It's in Uplay under DLC for the game. You have to download and install like like any other DLC (except it's free). I assume it's the same under Steam.

    Not showing up in my DLC on UPlay, on Steam, it shows but will NOT load at all. WTF?
