For those concerned about the "plastic" look of the plants- Alena has before taken the risk of showing early screenshots at the expense of not understanding these are WIP's and not the final product. Look how the appearance of reserves have progressed since VDB and the latest of TGT. TGT is a stunning reserve and I expect nothing less than surprise in the end.

I forgot in my earlier post but I think it's important to point out that Luna, once again, got in there and got it done! From my side of the fence it seems that time after time Luna rises to the occasion and kicks ass! Great job Luna!!! ;)

Awesome! Stunning news.

And as usual, the negative feedback takes way more words than the positive - which doesn't reflect tmy overall feelings about this great status update:

Isn't having Rusa and Sambal in the same reserve a bit like having Blacktail and Sitka in the same reserve? Sure, their habitats are overlapping, but especially in game it will be hard to make them feel very different. I'm surprised that it's not Axis deer instead of one of them.

Feral hogs. Isn't it actually legal in Australia to use poison for them?
I wouldn't mind to have a game mechanic that works exactly opposite to the baiting. Bring out hog poison and keep areas if the map nearly hog free.

Another thing regarding the status update:
On Monday all weapons and other items with the “Limited” tag will become unavailable and moved away,

I haven't been able to see any weapons with a limited tag. Am I missing something or just blind?

Looks like you've used the same grass & ferns from TheHunter Primal Haha TheHunter Primal 2.0 ... any news on that game btw? :|

Thanks for the Sambar deer & Rusa deer! :)
Not too sure in having Water Buffalo & Banteng as I don't want them to have the same behavior as Bison, they're so easy to *hunt* if you can even call it that since they just stare at you to be a easy target while you run around them for a perfect angled shot. :roll:

More Feral Hogs? LOL no thanks.

Any reason for not adding Fallow Deer?
Will Fallow Deer be added in after release? ;)
I have over 1337 kills with my Longbow at 100% kill rate.

Same, they're to dang noisy
wouldn't mind goats, dingo or crocodiles
You can ethically hunt crocodiles/alligators with the spot & stalk method or call them in (electronic caller new option) but not 100% sure on the 2nd method

But I'm totally hyped for the new 4 species, especially Banteng, that's an animal I wanna hunt in real life someday
My hope is that the new bovines are really short-tempered

Rusa and Sambar despite being in the same genus are two very different deer.
Sambar tend to be more solitary while Rusa live in small herds.
Sambar are also ALOT larger, comparable in size to an elk while rusa are mulie size.
On the other hand, I'm not sure which SSP the devs are basing the Rusa off of. Javan Rusa are a good deal larger yet then Molucaan Rusa(which are smaller and have a lot finer fur).

Many good things in this Status update. The new reserve seems beautiful, many new species to come, and the famous holidays event.
Good job again staff and devs, thanks :)

Very good news and 4 new animals?! Fantastic!

Please no waterfowl in the future, the canada goose (calls) makes hirschfelden unplayable for me.

Hogs? Hmm... I think that fits with the water buffalo, but maybe you rethink about adding them to the new reserve.

Maybe Axis deer next?
