Question: In the future, will some of the existing species be remodeled?

OK I will be the second. As an artist you should know this. Are you making any artwork that would increase the angle shooting down from treestand or up when using shotgun?

Will there ever be running water for rivers, creeks and streams rather than the same lake/ocean water effect used now?

Hi Peter, you are a brave man! :D ... fyi- the Silver Tip Brown bear and Cross Fox are some of my favorite looking animal textures in the game. Great Job to the artists.

1) Any plans for a true Rare for the Black Bear? I would really like to see what you all could do with a great varied-colored bear. Many bear in RL have multiple colors.

2) Many players have commented that it is extremely difficult at times to distinguish the goose RARES from the common Geese in the air. Do you have plans to change them soon? I know of 3 players that have shot a rare and didn't even know it was a rare until confirming or checking stats. I shot 2 and didn't know 1 was different until I confirmed it.

3) the Mallard hen has a brown bill and real ones have orange with black on them. Do you have plans to change that?

4) What has been your favorite animal to create in game? I would guess Moose or Roe Deer as those seem to be some of the best ones.


Thanks Peter!

Hi Peter. Thanks for taking our questions. Is there a better looking font for the HUD and screen messages coming, or is this the final product? Other than it was too large, why was the beautiful professional looking font changed?

For me there are 4 areas in the game where graphical art can be seen, and this is how I rate them overall.
Website: good and getting better
Reserves: outstanding
Weapons and equipment: outstanding
Animals: medium - For me the eyes of some animals are 30% too large and make them look like plush toys (roe deer and brown bear in particular). I also believe that the red deer antlers are anything but real.

Q: Given your crazy schedule, will there ever be time to review and renew such things, also based on community input? Or is it just getting worse with you guys' timelines?
