and yet another question popped up in my mind:

in the future, when there´s hopefully a lot more reserves, will the animal species get different subspecies? (like mule deer and blacktail deer). as an example: european and american moose (with different leaderboards, competitions and scores). i don´t know if this would be very high on the priority list, but i think it would add realism if we could hunt different subspecies ;)

Could you talk a little about the business model?

1.) How many active (paying) customers are there currently? Average number of new memberships per month? .......Etc.

2.) Do you derive much revenue from sponsors (Nosler, Anschütz), and why aren't there more sponsored products, perhaps regionally target toward where the player lives?

3.) Why are there no links or small ads for goods and services that might be of interest to your customers. Nothing too intrusive of course, we don't want to be bombarded by ads, but many companies derive significant revenue for such cross-promotion links. I'd think your customer base could be very targeted for certain types of outdoor and hunting products and services.

I can think of dozens of companies that may be interested in sponsoring products (guns, bows, clothing, equipment, callers, scents, etc.). Perhaps they would even be interested in sponsoring special events and competitions with the prizes being samples of their products.

Having invested a considerable amount of money in this game ( about $250 for me, but I've read other players saying they've spend $600-$800 on equipment), some of us worry that it could all go away some day if the income isn't sufficient you to continue.

Thanks.

Bjorn,
First of all, thank you for taking our questions.
I have 2 questions:
1. At one time, we were told Non-typicals (wt, bt, and md) would be added to our game. Is
this still on your "TO DO List?" If not, why?

2. We were also told, (after mushrooms appeared in our game), that "SHEDS". (for those of you
that don't know what Sheds are, it's the antlers you see on the ground that bucks lose in
early spring each year), might be added to our game. If these are no longer on your "TO DO List",...why?

Imo, a deer hunting game is NOT COMPLETE without nt's Image
Sheds would add more realism and many competitions could be created. (Highest score, Smalest score, widest
rack, total number found, etc, etc),...these comps would be enjoyed by all, imo.

Thank you,
Cutch

What are the chances of modeling the Zielsechs or Zielacht scopes to the K98?

Will we see other classic bolt action rifles in the future (e.g Springfield, Mosin Nagant, Winchester 70, Karl Gustaf)?

Hey Björn!

Thanks for giving us the opportunity to ask you what we want and being willing to read through this forest of questions.

Since a lot of interesting questions are already asked, there is just a few left for me.
The question to which answer I am most curious about:
Will there ever be wolves implemented in game?

If yes -will they attack?
If no - will this be due to different laws around the globe? (being protected by some countries while unprotected by others)

This is probably one of the more boring questions, and maybe not even worth to be answered.
Whatever you say, thanks for taking the time to read all this.

Hi Björn,

My questions:

1) Is small game being worked on by you guys?
2) If so, what species will it likely be?
3) If 1 is true, can we expect to see it soon?

Cheers!

Do you intend to release a public API to query stuff like total harvests, achievements, etc ?
