Screw these photo missions
Annoyed as hell.
I just deleted over 120MB worth of screenshots after attempting to get two of my photo missions done - both in Hirschfelden, the one trying to photograph a fallow deer in front of the lake and the one with a gold trophy rating fallow. I made craploads of photos of both motives, even from as close as 10m away - none of them registered for the quests. And that was not the first time I tried this quest.

If they can't fix the quests properly, they should at least take them out of the quest line so they don't block the progress. Or at least give the option to skip them, so the masochists out there can still try their luck at them.

I'm normally not in the "it's 'the hunter', not 'the photographer'"-business, but if you can't get a mechanic to work right, take it out or make it optional. Maybe allow us to prop up a deer we shot for a photoshoot (half kidding).

If you haven't noticed, they don't fix anything.

If there's a bug, expect it to be around forever.

Hundreds of close up shots of Mr Black but can't progress further! It's not the photo missions that are a problem, it's because they are broken/buggy that is the problem.

I was pleased when i completed the two bears pic but the difference between a 'pass' photo and a 'fail' photo both being identical and inches away was a joke.

I'd like to show you my "Bear family photo" which is not registered (but I don't know how to attach photos). While others are taking random pics and got mission completed.

Photo missions are frustrating and you can't skip them.

You can skip all the missions and just kill THINGS with the .243....FREE bullets.... and get farther in level and money if you shoot well and skip the missions. The dead people under the porch don't mean a thing....... I mean animals if you play the game well and have a good shot. ;)

I know I can ignore the missions, and I have for the largest part. I am not in my first few hours of the game as you seem to think, and I am very fine concerning cash and weaponry. But that's not the point. Sometimes I like to be given a certain task to fulfil, rather than just roaming around seeing what I can find. So when a mechanic is so buggy that it effectively keeps me from accomplishing the task and getting a new one, that's very annoying.

there should be a patch released any day, hopefully they address this issue.

Yeah the photo missions are pretty bad. Took me ages to get the bear family pic. I even managed to get 5 bears in one pic and it still didnt count. A couple of days after I took a pic of a single bear and it counted as mission complete. LOL

So... with the bear photo... I took a pic of the lake covered in fog at night and the game popped up saying i finished the quest... Struck me stupid for a bit because i spent 2 hours following around 3 bears snaping random shots...

Edit: So, I guess the photo quests are extreamly buggy. Hope it gets fixed, but it may be a while. Least this ain't the Hunter: Primal yet.

I'm really sorry to hear that. We know that there are unfortunately some issues with the photo missions in the game and we're working on improving these in the future.

see? they are on it. trouble they run into is one fix can cause another glitch somewhere else, so it does take time. meanwhile, go bag some game and enjoy the beauty :)

That's good to know, many thanks.

Any chance of a skip option though until they are fixed as I simply can't progress and I have some stunning close up shots of Mr Black!

In the future? I thought these issues are going to be addressed in the upcoming patch this week. I am still stuck at the first photo mission...

I agree, as long as you haven't fixed it at least give us the option to skip the photo missions.
Brechnor Aug 8, 2017 @ 3:10pm 
Signed.

I want to get back into this game more desperately than a person is who is drowning in a pool of dirty water fighting for air.... but these missions... I'm sorry I do generally like your game so don't take it the wrong way but they suck, badly.

Let us at least skip them if you can't fix them or allow us to auto 'complete' them into a side quest list for later.....

I would not have let this game be released with these missions the way they are... sorry. (But that's criticism not hate, it's still enjoyable but trying to complete or ignore those is incredibly horrific)
