Status Update

Hello Hunters,

I hope everyone is having a good week! This week’s real life hunting video is great, nothing but raw footage and a lot of hard hunting. I have a lot of respect for this hunter! So, again remember it shows real hunting footage, so if you prefer to keep your hunting fix virtual, DO NOT CLICK Here.

Tropical Tent and Trapper Tent

THC_tropical_forest_tent_fb_310518_1024x512px

Have you ever thought to yourself “it would be great if there was a tent that had some proper tropical camo”? Well today is your lucky day! The ‘Happy Camper – Sneaky 3D Tropical Camo’ tent is now available in store! You can buy it here.

Also for a limited time we managed to wrestle the ‘Trapper Tent’ from Doc and it is now out of his shed and available for purchase!

Halloween 2018

The Hunter Screenshot 2018.10.10 - 09.47.15.06

For the next few weeks we are going to ‘Park’ the vehicle discussion and focus on Halloween!

Last year was so popular we thought instead of trying to change the theme up, why not stick with what we had last year, give it A LOT of polish and make it bigger and better than ever?!

You guys have asked for more information faster, so let’s give it a try this time and see how it goes!

  • The Event will start on Wednesday the 24th of October, so you have two weeks to get ready.
  • This year (following community feedback) the Werewolf is huntable and also comes in a rare variation, both can be taxidermied.
  • The Werewolf has both score and weight variations and will have its own section in the leaderboards.
  • New animations and AI improvements have been made to the Werewolf, he is even more scary than last year and if he smells you… well, you better be faster than he is!
  • There will be two new weapons that can be used to kill the Werewolf, one brand new Wolfsbane Crossbow Pistol and one new Wolfsbane .308 Handgun variation.
  • The Wolfsbane .308 Handgun and a pack of Silver Bullets can be unlocked by completing a new mission pack.
  • If missions are not your thing, the new Wolfsbane Crossbow Pistol and a pack of Silver Bolts can be won by placing in the Halloween competition.
  • The Crossbow Pistol will also have an additional standard skin, that can be purchased in the store. Unlike the Wolfsbane skin, this version will take standard ammunition rather than the Silver Bolts used for hunting the Werewolf.
  • Additional Silver Bullets/Bolts will need to be purchased/acquired.
  • Both new Wolfsbane weapons will be usable after the event with standard ammunition, but won’t be available in the store.
  • We have added new collectables and there is lots of new Halloween content to be found.
  • For the Halloween enthusiasts, we also have a new mask you can purchase.

Known Issue(s)/Fixes

Scope and zooming issues: We have some good news, we have found the issue causing the problems with the scopes and binos. We are putting the final touches to the fix and will roll it out as soon as we are happy with it!

Some Extra Information

From this Friday until Monday the 22nd I will be on leave. New Zealand finally got steam power, so my parents set off 4 months ago on-board a steamliner to come and meet their grandson for the first time.

Graham and AC will be handling all the day to day tasks in my absence and you should not even notice I am gone.

Rare and Trophy of the Week

These Weekly competitions are super popular. The Trophy of the Week gets selected on Monday’s and Rare of the Week gets selected on Wednesday’s.

So, if you have shot a rare or high scoring animal from this week and want a chance to win, then share them in the correct thread on our forum, don’t forget to mention the score! Rares go into this thread and trophy animals into this one. We currently don’t have a competition for Non-Typicals, but they go into this thread.

This Weeks Winners

Nockedup

The ‘Trophy of the Week’ is this Huge Mulie!! It was shot by ‘Nockedup’ and scored 243.937! If you are wondering what many consider a trophy Mule Deer, it is anything over the 200 scoring mark.

Mallard

And the ‘Rare of the Week’ goes to ‘Treedwellerfor this Brown hybrid Mallard duck, with a great score of 1492.662, I really liked this trophy shot!

As an extra bonus and a little bit of fun, live on stream last week. I managed to bag a rare that I thought I would only ever dream about, an Albino Red Fox.

AF

It did not score high, in fact it was only 14.826, but I am super happy nonetheless.

Status Update

Hello Hunters,

Not a big Status Update today, but we do have some new Bobcat related things to talk about. Lots of people enjoyed the video I shared last week, so I have decided to include another, let me know if you would like it to be a regular thing! So here is the video, again remember it shows real hunting footage, so if you prefer to keep your hunting fix virtual, DO NOT CLICK Here.

Bobcat Mission Pack and Scent Spray.

THC_mission_bobcat_1024x512px

Today we release Bobcat missions and Bobcat Scent Spray into the EHR.

The Bobcat missions are here to stay and will be a nice addition for the mission runners to get their teeth into. You can find the mission pack here.

The Bobcat Scent Spray is used just like the Lynx Scent Spray and will be a great addition to your hunting toolbox. Remember to have it facing the correct direction before using it :P.

New Transport

Vehicle

So last week we gave you an image of the undercarriage, here is your third clue!

Community Discord Server

Discord

We have re-launched the Official Discord Server with lots more channels, including text channels where you can all talk! This should make it a lot easier to find other players who want to go for a hunt. We have also set it up for Community Content Creators to be able to show their videos easy, as well as promote up and coming streams. This will now also be a place we will be posting official information.

Last week we have also added a new section for Fan art, Memes, Real life hunting and Photography. To join up, click here!

Ask a Developer!

Currently on our Facebook and Instagram you can ask the Developers some questions. Once a week, one question will be selected and answered by a member of our team, all you have to do is find the post that has the above image and then leave your questions in the comments.

Today’s question comes from thomas__s_0417, who asked on Instagram “Will the hunter classic come out on Xbox one??”

This week’s question will be answered by Producer Beth!

“At present we have no plans to bring Classic to Xbox One. Classic is a complex game with many features and a lot of depth, so it would probably require changes to our existing controls and interface to adapt them for hand-held controls and console devices. For now, we want to invest that time into improving the current game on PC for our existing fans.”

Make sure to head over and let us know what you would like to know. A friendly bit of advice is to make sure they are questions, “I want to see X’ Is not a question and makes it hard for anyone to answer.

Known Issue(s)/Fixes

Scope and zooming issues: Players have reported that after using scopes or optics, different aspects of player controls have been freezing up, we are currently investigating this issue. If you are experiencing this bug please send us your feedback as we aren’t yet able to reliably reproduce the problem (which makes it much more difficult to fix).

What’s bugging you the most?

We are still working on the list and working out which ones are achievable to fix. Once we have a more solid list, we will let you know what you can expect in the near future.

Rare and Trophy of the Week

These Weekly competitions are super popular. The Trophy of the Week gets selected on Monday’s and Rare of the Week gets selected on Wednesday’s.

So, if you have shot a rare or high scoring animal from this week and want a chance to win, then share them in the correct thread on our forum, don’t forget to mention the score! Rares go into this thread and trophy animals into this one. We currently don’t have a competition for Non-Typicals, but they go into this thread.

This Weeks Winners

Muley

The ‘Trophy of the Week’ is this MONSTER Mule!! It was shot by ‘HighPlainsDrifter’ and scored 243.858! If you are wondering what many consider a trophy Mule Deer, it is anything over the 200 scoring mark.

Eurasian Lynx

THC_lynx_items_fb_1024x512px_3

Last week we set the Lynx free into the hills of Hemmeldal and it looks like everyone is having a good time trying to bag one or two.

What do we know about the Lynx so far?

  • The top score so far is 11.445.
  • Most of the hot spots for Lynx are located in the western hills.
  • One rare variation is melanistic, two have been shot so far. Are there more?
  • A combination of callers/spray has the best chance of luring them in.

If you are after some more hunting advice or have some to offer, you can join our discussion here.

So far two melanistic Lynx have been shot;

The first was actually ’Bato Stevanovic’, but due to some issues not being able to post the trophy shot, was pipped to the post by lisarob, both are very nice harvests, congratulations.

Nearly everyone knows that some transport is on the way to the EHR. Above is a first look hint at the vehicle.

I want to let you all know that we are committed to making sure that this maintains balance within the game and will not affect anyone else’s game play. Lots more details to come, but I just wanted to put players minds to ease a little.

Today’s question comes from Caleb Isaac, who asked on Facebook Is there any way you could make the internal ballistics on game more realistic? For instance, high shoulder shots with a firearm. In real life the bone breaks and massive amounts of energy are sent to the spine and lungs, but in game it just counts as a shoulder blade hit, and doesn’t really do any damage.

This question will be answered by our Game Designer, Patrick, here is his reply!

“Hey Caleb,

Great question, I can tell you must have a lot of real life hunting experience. This would be an amazing addition to the game, however it would take a lot to implement such an improvement to the game and our game engine has some limitations that might hinder us from doing it justice. It’s always a fine balance getting the correct amount of realism into the game, as well as trying to work out what features are worth spending the time on to develop.”

Make sure to head over and let us know what you would like to know. A friendly bit of advice is to make sure they are questions, “I want to see X’ Is not a question and makes it hard for anyone to answer.

Known Issue(s)/Fixes

Status Update

Hello Hunters,

Today’s Status Update won’t be a big one, as I know you would rather be out trying to bag a Lynx than reading what I have to write.

New Species

THC_lynx_items_fb_1024x512px_3

The wait is over, today the elusive Lynx has been released into Hemmeldal. As promised there will be a thread setup in the forums for everyone to share their hunting tactics, locations and kills. The aim of this is to work together as a community to help each other out. Think of it like a bunch of local hunters sitting around a campfire talking about sightings and offering tips to each other.

I shared this last week, but here is some information you might like to know:

  • The Lynx can be called using the ‘Jack Rabbit’ Predator caller, new Scent Spray and E-Caller add-on.
  • The new Lynx call for the E-Caller is a one time purchase and will work on all your E-Callers. The call can be selected when you activate the caller options, default key is ‘B’.
  • The Lynx is by design a very rare and elusive animal. They are always going to be in a spawn, but have low population numbers and are very jumpy. This is done to give you a great sense of pride and achievement when you do bag one, as well as to mimic them in real life.
  • I would recommend as a community scouting the maps to find areas where there are Lynx tracks and sharing the information, as well as working out what hunting techniques are working. I have both stalk hunted them and stand hunted them with good results.
  • There is a new mission pack for the Lynx.

Tomorrows stream will be fully focused on the Lynx and we can try and work out how to hunt them together!

New Transport

Some of you caught wind of a new vehicle that is soon to be added into the EHR. We are pretty early into development with it, but we are focusing on making sure that it maintains balance in the EHR and can not be used to exploit the game, while also adding mobility and some additional functionality to the game.

More details to come!

Ask a Developer!

THC_askadev_fb_1024x512px

Currently on our Facebook and Instagram you can ask the Developers some questions. Once a week, one question will be selected and answered by a member of our team, all you have to do is find the post that has the above image and then leave your questions in the comments.

Today’s question comes from James Wallace, who asked on Facebook “VR?”

This question will be answered by our Producer, Beth, here is her reply!

“VR support is not on our current roadmap, although that could be a possibility in the future as VR becomes a more popular mode of play. Today, making a change like this would consume considerable development time, but unfortunately is not likely to benefit the majority of our players. For now, we want to focus our time on changes that will benefit as many players as possible such as fresh new features, and improvements to our existing content. But as I mentioned – as we see VR becoming more popular over time, this could be a good reason to include it in our future plans.”

Make sure to head over and let us know what you would like to know. A friendly bit of advice is to make sure they are questions, “I want to see X’ Is not a question and makes it hard for anyone to answer.

Known Issue(s)/Fixes

Projectiles not registering after 500m. Today we have released a fix for this and we are confident you will be able to drop animals at even longer distances now. I will be keeping an eye on the leaderboards.

Hello Hunters,

How are we all this week? Has hunting season started yet where you live? I am hoping to get invited back out this year… Perhaps I can get my first Roe deer (which I will definitely share with Graham – This bit may or may not have also been added by Graham)! I know Geese season has started here at least. There are plenty of great videos going around social media, I did not realise Canada Geese had such a high population here in Sweden!

New Species

THC_lynx_items_fb_1024x512px_3

Not long now and you will be able to put your hunting skills to the test with the new Lynx. Just a quick recap of some of the information you might need to know:

  • The Lynx can be called using the ‘Jack Rabbit’ Predator caller, New Scent spray and E-Caller
  • The new call for the E-callers, is a one time purchase and will work on all your E-callers. The call can be selected when you activate the caller options, default key is ‘B’.
  • The Lynx is by design a very rare and elusive animal. They are always going to be in a spawn, but have low population numbers and are very jumpy. This is done to give you a great sense of pride and achievement when you do bag one, as well as to mimic them in real life.
  • I would recommend as a community scouting the maps to find areas where there are Lynx tracks and sharing the information. As well as working out what hunting techniques are working. I have both stalk hunted them and stand hunted them with good results.

We will be opening up some threads as well as a competition once these go live, make sure to check the forums regularly

Summer Fiesta 2018

THC_summer_fiesta_2018_fb_1024x512px

That sees the end of another great Summer Fiesta event. Congratulations to the winners of the Weightsaver Competition, I am sure the Golden .30R is a very nice trophy to have! Congratulations to everyone else who won the Season Comps, I know there was a lot of fierce competition. We had some enquiries about this year’s missions and I for one was interested to see the results:

  • 3,948 Players started the missions
  • 223 players completed the first mission pack
  • 210 players started the second pack and only 77 finished them
  • 76 players started the third pack and only 35 completed the last pack

So if you are one of these 35 players, congratulations and like I said at the start of the event, that is an achievement you can feel proud of! To celebrate, we have awarded you all with a nice little completion badge.

summerfiesta_2018_trophy_final

Looking at these results, we can see that the first two mission packs might have been a little challenging. Next year we will revise the packs and at least make the first two a little more achievable. Though in saying that… the missions are supposed to be a challenge!

This question will be answered by our Game Designer, Patrick, here is his reply!

“That is a ‘Wheely’ good question and the timing could not be better! We are actually currently working on a new form of transport in the game, sadly at this stage I cannot tell you more. But there will be more details coming out very soon, thanks for the question!”

I have been watching the leaderboard for the weightsaver competition, it has been chopping and changing so much, and only 40kgs separate the top 10. The Weightsaver Lottery ends 9am CEST on Saturday, so good luck to all and I hope you find some heavy animals!

Next week we will try have a little recap and try and look at some statistics from the competitions. Is there a question about the event you would like us to try answer? If you do, leave it in the Status Update discussion thread on our forums. I myself want to know how many people got all three mission packs completed!

 

New Species

So instead of letting you wait to find out what comes with the Lynx and to ease everyone’s minds, this time I thought we would talk a little about what you can expect.

As you can see from the picture, there is some Urine Spray you can use to attract the Lynx, this will work like all the other Urine Sprays. I am sure the USB stick grabbed your attention more though. Once you have purchased this caller upgrade t automatically adds the new call to your E-Caller,, which you can select after placing your E-Caller. Please note, you need need to have purchased the E-Caller previously to be able to add the call.

How does the Lynx differ from the Bobcat?

Well apart from new animations and it being slightly larger, it also has a new animal interaction, but we are keen to let you guys see these interactions for yourselves… Hopefully we do not see it on tomorrow’s stream! Another key thing about the Lynx, this animal will be very rare, with low spawn numbers and on top of that it is very shy. We have done this on purpose to have a realistic representation in the game and once you bag one of these animals you can feel super proud of yourself. This should also accentuate that real life feeling of bagging an animal and all the hard work paying off!

 

Ask a Developer!

THC_askadev_fb_1024x512px_280818

Currently on our Facebook and Instagram you can ask the Developers some questions. Once a week, one question will be selected and answered by a member of our team, all you have to do is find the post that has the above image and then leave your questions in the comments.

This weeks question comes from Connor Padgett, who asked on Facebook “what would a developer like to see in the game in the future?”

This question will be answered by our QA, Martin, here is his reply!

“Hmmm what would I like to see? If I could wave a magic wand and pick anything, I would love to see some of the deer animations updated, I think that would be really great!

Make sure to head over and let us know what you would like to know. A friendly bit of advice is to make sure they are questions, “I want to see X’ Is not a question and makes it hard for anyone to answer.

 

Known Issue(s)/Fixes

Projectiles not registering after 500m. A fix for this is currently being tested and we will release it to you as soon as it passes. We have to run checks for every single weapon in game, so it is taking a little longer than expected.

What’s bugging you the most?

We are still working on the list and working out which ones are achievable to fix. Once we have a more solid list, we will let you know what you can expect in the near future.

Status Update

Hello Hunters,

Well it’s that time of the week again, Wednesday, which means a new Status Update! Today we have a quick update on the Summer Fiesta and we also reveal the new species!

Summer Fiesta 2018

THC_summer_fiesta_2018_fb_1024x512px

Three weeks down and as we head into the last week, the Summer Fiesta Weightsaver Competition is looking super close, Only 30 kgs separate the top 10 players! Though I am sure some people are playing a little reserved until they see the full species list, so they can maximise their attempts! So I would expect some names to move around on the leaderboard towards the final days and the likelihood of some new ones to pop up as well!

This week the Winter Seasonal Cup starts, which sees hunters go after animals that are found on the colder maps! The highest combined score of your unspooked Sitka Deer, Reindeer and Dall Sheep shot at over 50m (Approx. 164 ft) is your competition entry. Targets must be taken down in one shot. Good luck!

Summer Fiesta Missions… Not that I have had time, but I am still stuck on the final mission of the second pack! I need to shoot a charging Grizzly Bear in the brain from under 5m. I thought this one would have been easy. But never fear, tomorrow from 10am till 5pm CEST, I will be streaming and trying to tick off the rest of the missions live! As well as trying to complete them live for myself, if you are stuck on a particular mission, let me know in the Twitch chat what one you are stuck on and we can work on it together! The best part about this community is its spirit and helping each other out. So tune in tomorrow from 10am CEST www.twitch.com/expansiveworlds

New Species

Yes that is correct folks, the Lynx is not too far away from being released into Hemmeldal. Now some of you will be thinking, “Ah, it’s a reskin of the Bobcat”. Well, you would be correct in the fact that both are very similar looking, just as they are in real life (they are actually both members of the same Lynx genus), but we have added new animations, some new animal interactions, and a different way to lure them! I for one am looking forward to bagging one, as they will be rare and elusive!

How well do you know the EHR??

Last week this was won in under an hour of me posting up the picture, and then I thought I had made a harder one on the Friday by making the competition with four images, but that was ticked off with ease as well. So look out this coming friday for an even more challenging one. To ensure more people with different time zones get a fair shot, I will be putting the new images up at 4pm CEST. It’s great to see so many people know the EHR so well!

You can find the competition in our forums HERE.

I just wanted to touch on this to let you all know, your feedback has not gone to waste. We are currently trying to reproduce many of the issues and we are hoping to present to you all many good fixes in the not too distant future.
