Thanks for this surprise. It is great! A couple of questions.

1. Has the scope bug at max zoom been fixed with this new enhancement?
https://forum.thehunter.com/viewtopic.php?f=179&t=82546

2. Will the shooting ranges be extended? I'm guessing bullet drop will be noticiable, so longer range targets would be awesome. Or adding deployable targets to the game would be awesome as well.

3. Since there are basically 3 different renders based on complexity, how will the long distance comps and leader board be affected?

I agree with no tents allowed in multiplayer accept by the host.

If you haven't thought of it, EW, you missed an opportunity to pair the new spotting scope with a new range finder binoculars. Bundle them together with a reasonable price and sales would be beyond render. ;)

As far as I know it has, but maybe Mat can confirm this.

From the SU:
It is also worth mentioning as another little teaser that deployable targets are in the making, and soon everyone will be able to see how the guns perform over these new ranges.
So this sounds like we're going to be able to create our own ranges soon. That would be really nice. Imagine setting up some kind of target shooting course within the woods and using it with friends in a MP game. :D

Another question. Will the range of callers be the same or will they be effective at the longer render ranges?

For me this is without doubt the best update since I signed up. Multiplayer was close, but this will affect the game like no other change so far. It will be like a whole new game. In fact, I might even open another account and start fresh. Seriously. Absolutely unbelievable. :shock: :) :D

Thank you EW for the great work, and TK, thanks for the wonderful news. (Sometimes being the messenger ain't such a bad gig, eh? ;) :lol: ) You made my week folks. Hats off to you all!!!

P.S.> Hey HooCairs, I'll bet you come back now buddy!!! :lol:

I fully support this idea.

One question: do the animals react to noise at 320 meters? Or if I shoot and an animal is 300 meters this runs off?
