An update I think would be really helpful is a settings controller like 2.7 had. I love how much control 3.0 gives over the graphics, but I've run into a major issue after leaving my game on Gorgeous Graphic quality. Every time I try to open the game, it crashed and I can't even lower the graphics quality to fix it, and so right now I'm kinda stuck. It's not an error with the game, but more my slow/old computer and my carelessness. It would be great to have a backup fix for this kind of issue, like a simple menu to set the graphics before the game starts, and then still allow players to customize the graphics quality once they can get into the game without it crashing immediately.

When you target a prey animal, that signals to your mate to attack that particular animal. Basically a way of communicating with your mate.

Re: WolfQuest: Anniversary Edition Achievements

Post by DinoDogDude209 » Tue Nov 19, 2019 2:30 pm

Currently, WolfQuest: Anniversary Edition doesn't have achievements yet. As such, I have compiled a list of possible achievements that could be added whenever achievements are added to the Anniversary Edition. Many of these are a little cheesy , but so were many of the achievements in 2.7. Some are also copied directly from 2.7 as a nod to achievements that were in the old game. Note that because the new Slough Creek episode hasn't been released yet, there are currently no achievements regarding anything from the Slough Creek mission arc or map, because we currently don't know what all will be in the new Slough Creek episode and map for WolfQuest: Anniversary Edition.

I've played the new game and absolutely love it. So looking forward to the Slough Creek update, and I hope it comes soon (though I understand and respect the time it takes to make such a remarkable game).

Here are my hopes for Towerfall and the new Slough Creek level:

-Actually getting thirsty. I'm not sure if this has already been discussed, but so far in Amethyst Mountain you can drink, but you don't get thirsty and as such don't HAVE to drink. I think there should be a thirst bar (that either exists and/or depletes quickly only on challenging/accurate or possibly only on accurate) that can be refilled a little bit by eating elk, since what the wolf is consuming is at least some percentage consisting of liquid, and refilled a lot by drinking water. This would be cool but I'm not overly concerned with it. Just a neat touch.
-Another note on water, wouldn't it be cool if the wolves (including mate and pups), prey and competition predators' fur gotta darker and dripped after it got wet from rain or from swimming? It would be a nice graphic touch that I'd enjoy.
-Bigger dens. It looks like a lot of people want this lol, and I do too - probably just in a different way. The dens don't need to be decoratable or dug by paw, but if you could at least climb down into the den that'd be nice for sure. Once again, not crucial, but it would be so fun and cute. Maybe your mate could climb in with the pups too and if they were inhabiting it, you couldn't fit lol. In 2.7 I found it frustrating that the dens were so small a wolf condo realistically never fit when in real life they would be big enough.
-Some changes on bird mechanics. I have no issue with how persistent ravens are to peck around a carcass, but maybe they'd actually act a little nervous when you growl and snap at them. Foxes and coyotes, too. They hardly run; it's irritating.
-When pups get older, it would be amazing for them to chase each other and play even when they're around six to eight months old. Animations and emotes where you could pin them or nip at them if they get out of hand would be incredible.

I also hope in the far future that someday you're pack could get a bit bigger. I imagine at least half of your pups would disperse to find a mate, but as in reality, maybe some would stay to be aunts and uncles to the new litter. I'm not sure, I just think it would be cool.

I've donated nearly a hundred dollars to this game. The devs are working hard! ❤️

1.) A thirst bar was discussed, and it was decided against because it would damper the enjoyment of the game. That's why we can drink water but there's no thirst bar. Imagine having to run all the way from point A to point B just to gulp down water for a few seconds? I've played games that had a thirst meter and it wasn't fun running around the entire map trying to find a river. In addition to that, a thirst bar would prevent the user from exploring the map (always sticking near rivers).

2.) Wet fur was mentioned somewhere, all I know is Dave said "maybe someday" or something similar to that due to the coding issues.

3.) From my experience, ravens, foxes, and coyotes did respond when I growled at them. Coyotes aren't particularly skittish, and they can be persistent. Foxes ran away but still watched from afar. Ravens fluttered from the carcass but overall growling didn't do much to spook them.

4.) I agree with the pup interactions! Currently pups do interact with each other (jumping on top, play bowing etc), but they don't run. I think a little running animation would definitely add to the game experience. Also, wolves rarely pin other wolves. Mother wolves do nip, however. I'm not sure how having a "nip" emote would work, since the innocent Wolfquest pups probably won't be tugging at your ear. :wolf:

[edit] Here's the link where Dave says no thirst meter and wet fur effects won't be added currently.

Anyway! Just my thoughts on this. No harm. :o

wolf parents who have had a litter of puppies recently will be able to lick (wash) them so that they can avoid future illnesses.
Like that there would be a cute little interection between wolves and puppies.

One thing I've noticed makes hunting a little frustrating at times is having no indication of which elk are more weak. I actually like not having the health bars and having to test prey, but it can really whittle away your health as you lose a tick of health here and there. By the time you've tested a few elk it can make a difference! I would really like to have some sort of external sign that an elk is potentially weaker such as limping, lagging behind the rest of the herd, tiring more quickly, or even a visible wound. Perhaps this could affect their aggressiveness to you as well? I imagine an injured elk would be more reckless and try to stand it's ground or defend itself more.

As well, it would be absolutely wonderful if terrain played more of a role, particularly in hunting. In many videos of wolves pursuing prey you often see the prey stumble or trip, giving the wolves an amazing opportunity to seize it. Calves in particular are susceptible to stumbling. Adding this would be a really interesting detail. Calves could have a random chance of stumbling or tripping when being chased, and prey running through rough terrain or even on cliff edges could trip or perhaps fall down the cliffs and become injured as your wolf can. There are a few articles I've seen indicating wolves in mountainous regions use steep terrain to their advantage by driving prey over cliffs or over steep, uneven drops where they'll lose their grip.

Is it possible on a future update to allow for lying closer to your mate? I have a very social mate & would like to be able to curl up close to him but at times it's almost impossible. There's like an invisible wall that doesn't allow for actual side by side sleeping...would also be nice for sleeping close to puppies when they are implemented.

Re: Ideas for naming things in LR

Post by DinoDogDude209 » Sun Feb 09, 2020 8:29 am

So, it's been confirmed for a while that the Lost River map will be added to the added to the Anniversary Edition at some point, though whether it will be before or after Slough Creek is completed is currently unknown. So I've been thinking about what LR in WolfQuest Anniversary Edition would be like for a while, and after a while a thought came into my mind: How will the team name the elk herds and dispersal wolf packs in Lost River?

The elk herds in the Amethyst map are named after wildflowers and other plant life found in Yellowstone, and the ones in Slough Creek and Tower Fall will presumably follow a similar theme. And while this naming scheme fits in quite well in the context of the Yellowstone setting, I personally don't think it would fit in very well in a purely fictional map like Lost River which has very little connection to the Yellowstone setting. As such, I would suggest instead using made up names. Since Lost River is filled with easter eggs and is more of a just for fun map, I think some less serious names or names that reference the WolfQuest team would potentially work quite well, along with potentially some more tough or rugged sounding names for larger herds. Some examples are listed below.
"The Buck Street Boys" (one of the funnier names that was suggested a while back)
"Greenhorn Herd" (a herd with a lot of spike elk)
"Oldblood Herd" (a herd with very few calves)
"Highland Herd"
"Thunder Hooves Herd"
"Moonstone Herd"
"Razorback Herd"
"Goliath Herd"
"Leviathan Herd"
"Vanguard Herd"
"White Lightning Herd"
"Dark Thunder Herd"
"Shockhammer Herd"
"Evergreen Herd"
"Antlerick Herd" (an elk-related pun)
"Hoofen Herd" (another elk-related pun)
"Shockwave Herd" (named after the early Shockwave 3D version of the game)
"Sentinel Herd"
"Grant Herd" (named after the Grant's Glen location in Lost River 2.7)
"Jay's Herd" (a reference to JayPlays)
"Schaller Herd" (a reference to Dave)
"Tommi's Herd" (a reference to Tommi)
"Buzza Ridge Herd" (a reference to Tim Buzza)
"Woolman Herd" (a reference to Ben Woolman)

Similarly, all of the dispersal wolves players find in the Amethyst map are from specific packs, which all seem to be named after real world wolf packs in and around Yellowstone. While this naming system helps to create worldbuilding and immersion, due to the fact that Lost River is a fictitious location whose proximity to Yellowstone is unknown, such a naming system would not exactly fit in well in the Lost River map. As such, I feel like some made up names that are still somewhat realistic sounding would be fitting. The static wolf packs in Lost River 2.7 were named somewhat similarly, so I think the following names would make decent names for them, as well as other, similar sounding names.
Redfield Pack
Revenant Peak Pack
Marshall Ridge Pack
Redhorn Pack
Calamity Pack
Clearwater Pack
Wartooth Pack
Wormwood Pack (a reference to Lost River's similarities to Chernobyl, as Chernobyl roughly translates to Wormwood)

More creative names for things in Lost River and possibly more references to the team would make Lost River even more unique and seem even more special than it already was in WolfQuest 2.7.

totally agree. something like slowing down will be nice.
