Greetings dinosaur hunters!

We are currently working on several improvements to trophy lodges. There will be a way to add new rooms and customize the content of these rooms in various ways. All images are work in progress images and are subject to change.

New rooms to lodge

We are developing a more advanced system where players will be able to add more rooms into their trophy lodges. Currently we have implemented three types of rooms:

  • Hall (the current room in game)
  • Room
  • Room with fireplace

Each room has doors where you can extend the lodge by adding a new room.

New dinosaur stands

In addition to the square stand there will be two additional stands: Round stand and wall stand. Round stand is just a round stand on the ground to give some variance. The wall stand is something completely different as it allows hunters to display dinosaur heads on walls. We are planning to provide different kinds of backplate to the wall stand depending on the dinosaur score.

New furniture

Different kinds of chairs, tables, bookshelves, beds, couches, cupboards, hangers, mirrors and shelves can be freely added to your lodge.

Guidance to lodge usage

We’ve added a HUD to trophy lodge that players can hide with U key to take pictures. The HUD is there to guide players to the controls with which you can add items and rotate them.

Stands will also display in which direction the dinosaur will be facing making placing them easier. This is shown with an orange arrow on top of the stand when placing it.

Graphics update in lodge

Trophy lodge lightning and reflections have been enhanced. Trophy lodge now uses screen space reflections and cube maps.

These improvements you can expect to see in the next update :)
