Greetings dinosaur hunters!

In this week’s blog we report development in the following areas of the game: Hunting contracts, equipment shop and ammunition.

Hunting contracts

Communication devices that players can use to get hunting contracts have now a lot more content. We’ve added many different contracts from which players can select the one they’d like to do. Within the contracts players also find basic information of the dinosaur they need to hunt. When a contract is activated it will show up in the HUD showing the current status of contract completion.

Once a contract is completed the player is rewarded with credits. These can now be utilized in equipment shop to buy new equipment.

EQUIPMENT SHOP

Players can now shop for new equipment. The shop is located within the same communication device players use to get hunting contracts.

Shop currently sells ammunition for all available guns and three guns: Hunting rifle, revolver and 50 cal rifle.

AMMUNITION

We’ve now introduced a simple ammunition system to the game. This means players no longer have unlimited ammunition. Currently there are two types of ammunition in the game: Rifle ammunition for all rifles and pistol ammunition for all pistols. Players can buy more ammunition from the equipment shop. This is phase one implementation of the ammunition system. Later we will implement separate ammunition types per weapon to make it more realistic.

Dinosaur sounds

Dinosaurs now make sounds also from a greater distance. This makes it easier for the player to find dinosaurs. In addition multiple new sounds have been added to different dinosaurs.
