Here comes your weekly batch of news from the theHunter headquarters!
Here we goat again…
Earlier this week we released our awesome Feral Goats onto Bushrangers Run and, judging by your feedback, you’ve been enjoying hunting them a lot! We also think the goats bring a special touch to a reserve that has been lacking a fulfilling hunting experience for a long time.
Grey Feral Goat harvested by community member lowby
The diversity of fur, colours and horns is something that makes this species unique and fun. Here is the thread for you to check all of them and how about post one of your own trophies? The “melanistic” ones that you could see in your hunt history post-release are actually the common black variation. Earlier today we released a patch fixing it and your hunting expeditions should now show the corrected info.
Right now there is also a pretty high ratio of piebalds and greys of different kinds, which are supposed to be slightly rarer than (think three times as rare) common ones. You can regard this as a release gift, we will tweak the ratio slightly in the next patch. 😉
Currently our goats can only be hunted using the good old spot-and-stalk method, but we are soon going to introduce mineral goat feeders (together with nifty salt blocks) to add an additional level to their hunting gameplay. Stay tuned!
Baiting System Review
Together with the new mineral goat feeders we will also be releasing the overhauled version of the baiting system for bear barrels and hog feeders. The new system features significantly simplified gameplay which we believe will offer players a more consistent experience. It also makes the system a lot easier to work with in the future. Upon release, David is planning to share background info about the changes to the system and technical specifications in a developer blog similar to the one Luna created for HS 2.0.
Deployable towers and scent hounds promotion
Today is the last day you can take advantage of our bonus gift promotion during which you can get a scent hound (female, light coat) and Deployable hunting towers Bare Wood when buying em$. There are a couple of hours left of the promotion, so hurry up while you still can. We’ve also added some heavy discounts to a lot of items in the store for you to spend your newly acquired em$ on.
Last but not the least, say hello to our new team member. His name is Linus and he has recently joined us as a Client Programmer. Read his intro below and say hello in the forums. You know the drill.
My name is Linus Sköld, I recently joined theHunter Classic team as a programmer after having worked on theHunter: Call of the Wild. I started my internship at Avalanche Studios back in the end of August 2016, this is part of the last year of my education at The Game Assembly where I (obviously) studied programming.
Some of my favourite games are World of Warcraft (huge lore nerd), Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy & Outcast, most (not 13) of the Final Fantasy games, Bravely Default & Second, Fire Emblem . There simply are too many great games to count that I have as favourite, but if you need to have a strong defined ONE game it’s World of Warcraft, 10 years of my life has gone into that game and I ain’t stopping now.
Other than playing tons of games in my spare time I do a lot of programming on my own to learn more about how things work and how to come up with smarter solutions, I also read manga, watch anime, and go to the gym to not have my back destroyed.
I hope to get along with you all, see you in the wilds!
That’s it from us for today, happy hunting!
