Losing Braincells While Trying to Find Camouflaged Reindeer Recently I was feeling confident ingame after a few successful hunts and quests so I accepted the "Animal in Forest Cover" quest. You probably already know where this is going.

I spent 2-3hrs irl searching in a spruce mire, aimlessly wandering trying to find the tracks of the demon stag. Long story short I've just quit the game and registered this account, specifically to ask why this godforsaken quest is in the game, if not to burn the image of thousands of spruce trees into my retina.

P.S please for the love of people's sanity significantly decrease the search circle if you read this Sami.

Re: Losing Braincells While Trying to Find Camouflaged Reindeer
I feel your pain, there are a number of quests that involve a search, forest cover is perhaps the worst of these because the only thing that you can find is tracks.  Here are the tips I can think of to help.
  • Search from the center of the circle on the map, the location always seems to be the very center of the search circle.
  • You can use your tracking skill in the zoomed out map, maybe try using it a few times on each square.
  • Sometimes the tracks are mislabeled, you might find bull tracks if you're looking for a cow (how would they know?!).

Bear in mind there's no great penalty for failing a quest, you can sometimes go back to the NPC and tell them you give up.  That might help you get another quest in a more timely manner, but I think I've had two quests active at a single time before.

I have somewhat of a love/hate relationship with the search quests but it always feels rewarding when I find what I've spent time looking for.

I did manage to find the stag, but it took alot of extra time. I didn't zoom out and search tracks, I basically just walked zoomed in. I probably fully explored 40 tiles before finding the tracks... in an already explored area. So either I'm blind or the tracks are refreshed after some time more or less. For the amount of time I invested into this, the reward didn't feel worth it at all, most other search quests at least give you a terrain feature to look out for which can cut down on time but its a shame there isn't one for this quest.

I'm currently working on an animal sprite overhaul, what do you guys think? Hey guys, I've been working on a couple of animal sprites recently.

I've been a fan of Galgana's creature sprites (incredible, especially when compared to the vanilla sprites) for a long while and I thought I might as well try my hand at making sprites reminiscent of their work. These are still obviously my own creations (thanks MSPaint), but I wanted to create something that could be used in tandem with their mod, to fill the gaps more or less. Who knows, I may even create my own overhaul that covers all of the animals. If any of you have any suggestions on where I can improve or where I've f**ked up feel free to let me know. I've also dabbled with the rain and snow, it's always bugged me that you lose so much visibility in these weather conditions, but that's for another topic.

Here are the sprites, a humble badger, and beaver (already done the full sprites, these are just teasers).

EDIT: I modified the badger/beaver sprites and created two more, the glutton (wolverine) and polecat

Re: Krutzel's Spirited Sprites Wow I'm really impressed with these sprites. Unfortunately for me I wasn't able to continue work on my own set but these are definitely gonna be cool to take a look at ingame.
