Ladies and gents, please welcome our new addition to Timbergold Trails: the Puma! (aka Mountain Lion, aka Cougar, aka Catamount etc. this animal has about 40 names in English alone!)

The majestic feline has been spotted in the mountains north-west of the reserve and sometimes in the hills south of the river. Be careful though, as occasional attacks on humans have been reported!

Together with the new cat, a few new items have arrived in the Store to help you hunt this elusive predator:

Puma Scent Spray

Game Update: Daily Missions

daily_missions_game_update_800x450

Howdy hunters!

Today we are glad to introduce a brand new feature to theHunter Classic: Daily Missions!

This is a completely new mission system that we hope will provide you with extra entertainment, as well as give you one more way to earn gm$.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

✅  In the Launcher (or Website) you can now find a new section under Missions called Daily Missions (DM from now on).

✅  Each day every player receives a new DM to complete. Different players will receive different DMs.

✅  By completing a DM every day increases your DM streak by 1.

✅  Skipping or failing to complete a Daily Mission will break your DM streak and will bring you back to day one.

✅  DMs come in three difficulty levels: Easy, Medium, and Hard.

help_page_difficulty_levels

✅  Each difficulty level has different base rewards: 100 gm$ for Easy, 500 gm$ for Medium, and 1000 gm$ for Hard respectively.

✅  Your first DM will be an Easy one, then DMs of different difficulty levels will alternate according to a pattern that we call a “cycle”. A cycle looks like this: E-E-E-M-E-E-E-M-E-E-E-M-E-E-E-H (where E stands for Easy, M for Medium, and H for Hard). As you can see a cycle lasts for 16 days, provided of course that you keep completing the DMs that are assigned to you.

help_page_cycle

Example of cycle

✅  Once the first cycle is completed, a new cycle begins with gm$ rewards increased by 10% (Easy = 110 gm$, Medium = 550 gm$, Hard =1100 gm$).

✅  With every subsequent cycle, rewards increase by an extra 10% up to a maximum of double the amount of the original rewards (a 100% increase). So for example, if you manage to complete 10 cycles in a row without breaking your streak you will then receive a x2 reward for each mission which will continue until you break your streak.

IMPORTANT NOTES

✅  As they’re meant to be completed in one day, DMs are supposed to be overall quite simple and will not require specific weapons or equipment.

✅  Unlike regular missions, for a harvest to be valid in DMs, you will have to kill the animal yourself. Friends can still help you find the required animal in a Multiplayer session though.

✅  Unlike regular missions, Daily Missions don’t need to be activated. A Daily Mission is always active for the time it lasts (24 hours).

✅  The Daily Missions system does not replace the existing Missions system (which has been now renamed: “Regular Missions”).

STORE ITEMS

With the introduction of Daily Missions, a new service is available in the Store under “Services”:daily_missions_game_update_card

Resume Daily Missions Streak – allows you to resume a DM’s streak. For example, if you have a long streak of completed DMs and then missed or failed a DM, you can use this service to resume your streak and continue from your last completed DM.

The good thing is, it doesn’t matter how much time has passed since you broke your streak, you will always be able to resume it – even if you broke it, say, a year before.

This service can be purchased in advance and activated when needed. There is no limit to how many of these cards you can purchase or own.

Game Update

THC_game_updates_arctic_clothes

Howdy Hunters!
Today we’re releasing a new game update and we want to let you know what you will find in it:

ADDED

✅ New Snow Goose Mission pack. Meet Igsivalitaq (no, the office cat isn’t walking on my keyboard, that’s actually an Inuit name!) and unveil his story in 10 brand new missions.

✅ New winter clothes set, perfect for hunting in cold, sub-arctic regions. It includes 5 items:

  • Arctic Fox Hat (White Fur)
  • Arctic Jacket (White Fur)
  • Arctic Gloves (White Fur)
  • Arctic Boots (White Fur)
  • Arctic Pants (Snow White)

FIXED

✅ Fixed the infamous “un-harvestable animal” bug, an issue where sometimes players were unable to harvest killed animals. This happened both in singleplayer and multiplayer, as well as during a “second day hunt” – just to mention the most frequent scenarios. This should be gone for good now and you won’t lose your animals and trophies anymore. Please note that there is a similar, yet much rarer issue that we call “zombie animals” whereas when you shoot an animal it still looks at you and cannot be killed or harvested. This is a very rare issue and we are still looking into it.

✅ Fixed a bug where bullets could not be fired through some waterfowl blinds.

✅ Fixed a bug in the “Yin & Yang” competition where any animal would count against the competition’s goal.

Hope you enjoy it, feel free to let us know what you think of the new additions as well as let us know if you find any issues on the Forum:

Game Update

THC_game_update_snow_goose_bugfix1

Howdy hunters! We have just released a patch with a few Snow Goose-related bug-fixes:

✅ Fixed an issue where the player could see animals through terrain and vegetations if they looked from inside a static Snow Goose Decoy.

✅ Snow Geese achievements’ max value has been changed from 1000 to 4000 to align it with all other birds.

✅ Fixed Snow Geese decoys icons in the inventory (“Feeder” decoy had the icon for “Active” and vice-versa)

✅ Fixed a bug with the Snow Geese Flag Lure where the shadow of this item was missing.

✅ Snow Goose now has an additional trophy pose with open wings in the lodge.

✅ There are now more spawning areas on the land for Snow Goose, so that they will not concentrate in only a few spots.

✅ Fixed a bug where the “blue-morph” version of the Snow Goose was extremely rare and was named “melanistic”. This color variation has been now given the appropriate probability and renamed “Blue Common“. So Snow Goose has now three colors variation: Common, Blue Common and Albino (rare). The very few players who have managed to catch the old “melanistic” variant will keep it as “melanistic” in their stats history.

Game Update: Snow Goose

THC_game_updates_snow_goose

Howdy Hunters!
A new game update is live, and we want to let you know all the cool stuff you will find in it!


ANIMALS
New species: Snow Goose
A new waterfowl has been introduced to the Whiterime Ridge reserve: the Snow Goose! Their name comes from their bright white feathers, however, some snow geese are actually gray/blue colored, and known as “blue morphs.” You will be able to hunt both variants, together with a much rarer one, in the snowy lands and cold skies of Whiterime Ridge.


WEAPONS
New winter camo for the 20 GA Semi-Automatic Shotgun
With the introduction of Snow Geese we thought you might need a suitable camo for one of the waterfowl-hunting favourite shotguns.


EQUIPMENT
3 Snow Goose Static Decoys
Static decoys for Snow Goose come in three flavors to increase realism: Feeder, Sentry and Active.
Snow Goose “Flapping-Wings” Decoy
This type of decoy mimics the wing movement of a real Snow Goose.
✅ Snow Goose Flag Lure
This flag features the characteristic black and white color pattern of a Snow Goose and can be used at long range to attract geese with motion resembling a goose flapping its wings.
Snow Goose Long Range Caller
This caller is used to increase the probability of birds breaking off from high flying flocks, and attempting to land, as they fly over an area.
✅ Snow Goose Short Range Caller
This caller  produces all the honks, clucks and feeding cackles needed to attract the birds that have already broken off a flock.


LARGE EQUIPMENT
Waterfowl Blind – Arctic Winter Real Vegetation Camouflage
Especially designed for waterfowl hunting this blind comes decorated with foliage and vegetation from boreal forests and provides excellent visual reduction in subartic environments.


VIDEO
Last but not least, check out this cool video from Master Hunter HooCairs showcasing the Snow Goose and the new items!
