I already wanted to comment on the last status updates but failed to log into the forum. Now that I found out that I have to create a seperate account AND use my username instead of email to log in
, I can leave a few comments on the latest one :
First of all, Alena, congrats to your baby! Beeing a parent is one of the greatest experiences in life. And, of course, a big welcome to Bethany and Matt.
The Halloween-Event was spooky and awesome. Really enjoyed it, although some of the missions gave me a hard time. Was lucky with the second, but the wolves and sheep were horrible. Only my experience, the idea and design were great.
The fact that only 479 players completed it worries me a bit, makes me wonder how small the player base of this game might be. Hope there are enough players to keep this game profitable and thereby running. I'd love to know how many players completed each mission, but you probably won't publish that numbers.
Can't say anything about the lodge styles because I didn't get them yet, but the gun rack is a feature I have been wishing for since I really love customizing the lodge, so I got it on day one. I was thinking that I would only get the rack and was completely stunned by the enormous amounts of wall mounts coming with it. Even encourages me to get more weapons, just to put them in the right places, like a camo .300 for my arctic corner
The only downside doesn't concern me since I'm not a bow huntig enthusiast, but want to mention it anyway : Compared to the huge number of rifle mounts, the three bow mounts seem a little low. Furthermore, they are placed in the last corner, where they are half covered by the backside of huge bears that many people probably store there on the Large Platform.
In addition, it is not possible to put a bow on the rack itself, although the picture in the store shows it displaying a Snakebite. As I said, I don't care. Wouldn't put a bow there anyway but this could make some people complain they didn't get exactly what they paid for. I just have a rustic lodge so I don't know if there are better places for bow in the classy lodge.
Speaking about trophy lodges, I want to make a couple of suggestions :
First, it would be nice to have a board for trophys. Along with this, it would be great if some more trophy models were introduced for competitions, like different animals or weapons. Right now its the same model for almost every competition. Might encourage people to collect trophys of their favourite animals to display them in their lodge along with the winning animal's head
Some more options for customisation would be nice, like different kinds of furniture. For example, replacing the old rocker in the rustic lodge with something a little more classy. Or changing the chest to a bookshelf and the pictures on the wall traded in for some shots we took ourselves. Everything for a fee, I wouldn't mind.
I can only speak for myself here, don't know what other people think. But the main reason I didn't get the styles yet is that I would love to have the birch railings of the Alba style, but don't like the stone floor. If we could choose to mix the Alba railings with Luna floor&paint and maybe Aspen fireplace, I'd purchase all three styles right now.
What would you think about an option to replace the IKEA-moose-carpet in front of the fireplace with the pelt of a large animal like bear or boar the player has shot and taxidermized?
Along with an actually burning fire instead of some smoking ashes, that would make a cosy place.
That's all that comes to my mind right now, or at least all that belongs into this thread.
