Summer Fiesta

FiestaLauncher

Hello folks!

An occasion like this requires dedication and fitness. After all, it lasts 5 weeks. Yes, you read that right. For the next five weeks the EHR is celebrating its annual Fiesta! One tiered multi-animal comp a week, a comp that lasts the whole 5 weeks, and 3 mission packs in total for all to sink their digital teeth (and ammo) into.

There’s a load of things to do, so put on your sweat band, wrist supports and comfy socks for an epic virtual work out.

Participate for the prizes, the trophies, and the glory! This event is going to work a bit differently, so read on for the skinny.

While we’re considering this an event, it isn’t going to function like one. There are no special point$ to collect, no fancy banner and calendar. Activate your missions from the mission page and your comps from the competition page as you normally would in the launcher or website.

All three mission packs will be available for the duration (the hardcore pack, To Hell and Back, unlocks after completing the easier Blood on the Tracks missions). Born to Run is available from the start.

The tiered comps run for a week each, you know how these work. The Jackpot comp runs for 5 weeks. You have 30 attempts BUT one new animal will be added twice a week. Remember to deactivate the comp in between sessions so you don’t waste attempts. Highest combined score wins. To be eligible, you need at least one harvested animal of each species.

CALENDAR

Duration:  35 days

Start: 21 July 2021 (Wednesday) – morning

End:  25 August 2021 (Wednesday) – 7 am UTC

MISSIONS

Each mission in the Hunting Packs (each set of objectives, in other words) has a nice chunk of gm$ attached, so failure to complete the whole Pack will still net you something.
The missions will need to be activated through the Mission page.

Born to Run: A total of 10,000 gm$, a trophy and some items: Deployable Hunting Tower, climbing gear and an Inventory Loadout.

Blood on the Tracks: A total of 5,500 gm$, 250 em$, a trophy and a Heated Tent, Winter Camo

Howdy Hunter,

Things have gone a bit South in Timbergold Trails… See, the Pumas turned up, but the Wolf numbers didn’t decrease. We thought things would sort themselves out, but a hunter was attacked by the very animal he was hunting! I don’t need to tell you how rare a wolf attack is, but if they’re getting hungry enough to challenge people with guns we have a serious problem on our hands.

Thin their numbers before we have gangs of apex predators actively hunting humans.

Game Update – QoL and Bug Squashing

THC_game_updates_20210630_805x380

Howdy Hunters!

We have another small set of QoL improvements ready for you! It includes:

✅ In-game chat now supports Cyrillic characters.
✅ E-caller now has an outline once you click B (by default) button to make it easier to find :)
✅ A bug that sometimes allowed players to put any ammo into any weapon is fixed now. So there is no way to shoot an arrow using a shotgun anymore. Sorry to people that enjoyed that, but it was a bug, not a feature.
✅ Store descriptions have been updated for lodges and dogs to be clearer.
✅10-years anniversary jackets sometimes didn’t award automatically, now fixed.
✅ All bugs for the recently added competitions found by players have been fixed too. Thanks for your help!

A few missions fixed:
✅ ‘Specific Accuracy’ (Traditional Bow missions) – description fixed
✅ ‘Barely Seeing Red’ (Red Kangaroo missions) – description fixed
✅ ‘Preparing For The Feast’ (Settler Creeks Travel missions) – weapons fixed to support all Compound Bows
✅  ‘Payback’ (Roe Deer missions) – description fixed
✅ ‘Patient Zero’ (Sambar Deer missions) – fixed the parameters to work properly according to its description
✅ ‘Rock and Roll’ (Rocky Mountain Elk missions) – weapons fixed to support all ethical rifles

As usual, let us know if you come across any problems with the fixes.

We’ll be back soon with more, look forward to it!

Happy hunting!

Midsummer Event

midsummer_2021_launcher

Hello folks!

Midsummer. That time of the year where day and night are still being reasonable. Before you curse yourself for not owning blackout blinds because you get about half an hour of dusk before the sun’s back out in full force. We decided it’s best to have fun while we can, though.

Hunt down Puck$ through the event’s mission and competitions and hunting Summer Deer around the EHR! Summer Deer means Deer that you harvest from the Summer-based reserves: Roosevelt Elk, Red Deer, Sambar Deer, Mule Deer, Whitetail Deer, Blacktail Deer, Roe Deer, and Rusa Deer. No restrictions on gender.

Participate for the prizes, the trophies, and the glory! The hunter with the most Pucks$ at the end of June the 28th will win a generous first prize!

In order to take part in the event, you will have to click on the big banner you will find in the Launcher (or Website) home page:

banner_midsummer_2021

Read on and familiarize yourself with the rules of the event.

CALENDAR

Event Duration: 7 days

Start: 22 June 2021 (Tuesday) – morning

End:  28 June 2021 (Monday) – 23.59 UTC

CAMPAIGN

The more Puck$ you collect, the more in-game prizes you are rewarded.

This is how the prize pool looks:

MISSION

This year’s mission is called Summer Fun

General Major Petersen again. I think some new display trophies are in order if we want to impress the visiting V.I.Ps. Can you get me a nice range of animals from our Summer Reserves? On top of that, I’ll give you extra points for any Summer Reserve Deer you shoot except Moose. Basically, I won’t give a Puck$ if you shoot anything besides Roosevelt Elk, Red Deer, Sambar Deer, Mule Deer, Whitetail Deer, Blacktail Deer, Roe Deer, or Rusa Deer.

The mission will last through the event’s duration from the 22nd June to the 28th June.

Completing it will earn the hunter the following rewards:

COMPETITIONS

The event comes with three competitions each lasting 3 days! Completing each competition in any place (just qualify!) will also award the hunter 100 Puck$ points.

Game Update – Competitions and QoL

2021_6_2_805x380

Howdy Hunters!

We’ve put together some serious QoL fixes for you in this release, most of them about the Competitions and competitive spirit theHunter Classic is famous for:

✅ The gm$ limit has been increased to 99 999 999 instead of 999 999. Believe it or not, Some players complained that they cannot earn more than a million.
✅ Locations mentioned in the WRR travel missions are shown as exclamation marks on the Hunter Mate now.
✅ Event missions become inactive once the event is over.
✅ Points for event competitions did not always apply automatically, fixed now.
✅ Score system has been slightly updated for animals scored purely by weight like ptarmigans and the rabbit family, and any animals scored by skull size to add more differentiation to the harvested animals and decrease the number of players sharing places in leaderboards. As a side effect, all scores now have 4 decimals. We understand that this is a small step away from realism, but hope it will increase the competitive aspect and eliminate dozens of similar scores in the leaderboards. Please note that all previous harvests will stay as is, but an extra zero will be added to the score there for consistency. Only new harvests will have the proper 4 decimals in the score, therefore we released it today together with a new season start.

A major update of competitions:

✅ All regular competitions were re-scheduled completely to keep the balance for the simultaneously running competitions (and another reason you’ll find out soon :) ).
✅ All animal trophies are updated with brand new ones.
✅ Unpopular competitions largely replaced with the new ones in rotation. Let us know if you want more new comps in the regular rotation!
✅ Bugfixes (missing/incorrect ammo and weapons, missing info in description, etc).
✅ Updated headers (some animals missed it and used the generic one). All single animal comps now have pretty new headers for you to enjoy.
✅ The formatting of all competitions has been changed for better readability and consistency.

Unfortunately, this will cause a problem with translations – as any changed string becomes untranslated. We sincerely apologize for that (both to you and the translation teams)! We will catch up with any that are still untranslated as quickly as we can.

Grab the Update HERE on Steam.

Well, that’s it for now. Look forward to more from us soon!

Happy hunting!
