Release Notes

Howdy, hunters!
We know most of your expectations are about the new species announced during last month’s stream, but it’s a taking a bit longer to cook than we expected – so please bear with us (no pun intended!).
 
In the meantime, we are releasing a small patch to keep things rolling and hopefully keep you happy too.
Here is the changelog:
 
TURKEY
  • Fixed beak and snood positions issue during trophy shot.
  • Beard does not disappear inside the body during trophy shot anymore.
  • Internal organs’ size and location have been fixed, which should improve accuracy with hitboxes.
12 GA Blaser F3 Game O/U Shotgun
  • Barrel was still crooked in prone position – fixed now.
COMPETITIONS
  • Some competitions header images still featured old animals (Turkey, Black Bear and Brown Bear). They are now fixed and updated. Please let us know if there are still any that should be updated.
  • “Biggest Canada Goose – Started” competition’s description was incorrect. – fixed.
MISSIONS
  • “A Shocking Turn of Events” mission had incorrect objectives, it can now be correctly completed.
  • “Sambar deer Mission #2 – Sample Analysis” mission had incorrect objectives description – fixed now.
Last but by not by any means least, here’s a very cool video from Master Hunter & content creator HooCairs showcasing some of the fixes.
Enjoy!

Status Update

Hello Hunters,

How is everyone’s week going? Today’s Status Update is a smaller one, however Graham just shared with me the most amazing bow hunting video I have seen in ages, and I just have to share it with you guys! Be warned though it does contain real hunting footage, so if you prefer to keep your hunting fix virtual, DO NOT CLICK here: Video.

New Transport

The Hunter Screenshot 2018.09.19 - 09.35.11.09

So last week we gave you an image of some camouflage, which was from one of the paint jobs that are available on the vehicle, here is your second 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.

This 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!

THC_askadev_fb_1024x512px_team2

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 alex_the_tazy_artist, who asked on InstagramFavorite reserve on Classic?

Today I thought it would be fun to ask some of the team! Here are their replies!

Josh : “Whiterime Ridge, it’s really pretty”

Patrick: “Timbergolds, hands down”

Linus: “Hirschfelden, or however you spell it :P”

Beth: “Bushrangers Run, I love the wide open space and barren look”

Martin: “Hemmeldal, it reminds me of my cabin in northern Sweden”

Henrik: “Piccabeen Bay, because of the Water Buffalo”

Greg: “Hemmeldal for life”

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.
