Autumn Bugfixes

autumn_bugfixes_800x450Howdy hunters!
We have just released a patch with a few fixes.

Here’s the changelog:

BUG-FIXES

✅ Fixed an issue where some animals fell through the ground during trophy shot mode.

✅ Fixed a bug where some animals could not be rotated in trophy shot mode when using predefined poses.

✅ Fixed a bug where a player might see another player moving in some weird pose while in trophy shot mode, in a multiplayer game.

✅ Fixed a bug where the Albino Female Moose would look like a normal one in a Trophy Lodge.

✅ Few minor fixes in missions and competitions. Thank you for your feedback and please continue to send it, we are on a mission (excuse the pun!) to fix them all!

ANTI-CHEAT

✅ People were able to download the free equipment DLC on Steam multiple times by using multiple Steam accounts. This is now fixed, any theHunter Classic account can only download the DLC once.

✅ The outline of deployable items could be exploited to see animals far away through the environment. This is now fixed and cannot be used as an advantage any longer.

Message to the Community

Howdy Hunters!
Today, we are announcing something that was long overdue and will spend a few moments to talk about it.

At the end of 2019, Expansive Worlds and Ringtail Studios, a long-term business partner of Avalanche Studios Group, began discussing and working together with the intention of continuing the development and support of theHunter Classic. Almost a year later, we can say that this collaboration has grown and exceeded our expectations.

Frankly, it’s a big part of the reason why we have been able to continue to improve and add new things to theHunter Classic. We hope you agree!

As you might expect, this is only the beginning of our collaboration. The list of improvements and additions planned for theHunter Classic is still very long, and the development team is committed to working closely with you, our very dedicated game community, to shape the future of your favorite game.

To celebrate the collaboration between Expansive Worlds and Ringtail Studios, we are giving away two new in-game clothing items: a t-shirt and a cap, sporting the logos of both companies – a special design that we dubbed ‘hunting together’. You can find them both in the game’s store for free.

Game Update

animal_poses_steam

Howdy hunters!
Today we are proud to deliver a cool new feature to you: animal trophy shot poses!
No need to spend precious hunting time trying to get that perfect pose for your trophy shot anymore!
Initially, animal trophy shot poses are available for 6 animals:

✅ Turkey
✅ Feral Hog
✅ Moose
✅ Red Deer
✅ Roosevelt Elk
✅ Whitetail Deer

Based on community feedback we will then evaluate whether to implement trophy shot poses for other animals.

You can see a preview of the poses available in the Store.

Bonus “quality-of-life” addition!

Animals posed in “ragdoll mode” in your trophy shot now do not reset when switching between Photo and Edit mode.
To reset the ragdoll you need to press the Backspace button. Hopefully, this will help to make the trophy shot process a little easier.

We hope you enjoy the new additions and are looking forward to seeing what cool trophy shots you will be able to create with the new poses!

Last but not least here’s a great video by Content Creator HooCairs showcasing the new animal poses and explaining how to use the new trophy shot controls. Take a look!

Game Update

release_4-2_socialHowdy hunters!
We have just released a patch with a few new features and bug fixes.
Here’s the changelog:

FIXES

✅ Fixed some animations for the recently released Maisto 12 GA Semi-automatic shotgun.
✅ Fixed a bug where Snow Geese shot while walking on the ice were counted as airborne.
✅ Fixed the number of Snow Geese kills in the corresponding in-game achievement pop-up message.
✅ Fixed the number of harvests by the 20 GA SA Snow Camo shotgun in the corresponding in-game achievement pop-up message.
✅ Few minor fixes in missions and competitions. Thank you for your feedback and please continue to send it, we are on a mission (excuse the pun!) to fix them all!
✅ Good news for waterfowl hunting lovers – Fixed the bug where Snow Geese and Magpie Geese flocks sometimes were silent.

CHANGES

✅ Slightly changed the position of the Maisto 12 GA Semi-automatic shotgun is held when aiming, so as to give a more realistic point of view and improve accuracy with the iron sight.
✅ Added new, original sounds for the Maisto 12 GA Semi-automatic shotgun.
✅ Added more realistic Snow Goose sounds.

NEW FEATURES & CONTENT

✅ Added ‘All Time’ personal bests. Please note that All-Time Personal Bests only include seasons with the latest scoring system. In other words, seasons with older versions of the scoring system won’t be available in the All-Time Personal Bests.
✅ Good news for waterfowl hunting haters – Added a new option to disable the waterfowl flocks’ sounds altogether (Options → Gameplay).
✅ A brand new Mission Pack is ready for you. This one is all about shotguns!

We hope you enjoy this update – please do let us know what you think and if you find any issues.
