Egret plumes patched?

Recommended Posts

Happy Hunter

Is it just me, or are we no longer able to sell those valuable egret plumes people were farming?

This'll go down well if it's not just me 🙄

 

I'm ... Well it's not a huge deal, since there are other animals to hunt that make enough money. I don't like it much - I'm hoping they're not just going to ban any creature that sells for much. These were especially valuable though, and easy to find. I don't know - I just hope nothing else gets stopped from being sold.

 

Or maybe it's just me? Has anyone sold any recently?

I sold like an hour ago. 

Pretty sure theyll nerf them,it would be justified. 1,95 for one feather and one bird has up to 3..plus the other stuff,plus the fact that you meet them mostly in groups.

Hmmm, maybe the Reddish ones just can't be sold then? I'm not sure why I couldn't sell the ones I got. Tried at two different butchers.

 

I'll have to hunt some more of them, hopefully get in quick and make some money for stuff.

Nerf the price maybe but eh... Yeah that's sort of tactless, isn't it?

The same. I have two egret feathers, and the butcher in Saint Denis will not buy them. I still have been gathering up plenty of Heron, Spoonbill, and Pelican feathers though.

This better not be a sign of how Rockstar plans to handle balancing the in-game economy.

Wow, not good. I fear they're going to nerf hunting. Shame.

 

So the balancing they spoke about may just be to put things in their favour, rather than to benefit the player. I sure hope not though...

Worst part is that they'll probably get away with it because some people will defend everything R* does and say it's fine, it's so easy to get money in game ;)

Wow, holy sh*t, R*. 

 

And this right on the heels of announcements about addressing the in-game economy. So, analyze data to find out how we're making money and close that avenue? I think I know what happened to Scumbag Steve; he got a job at R*...

What next? Stop us selling pelts? Fences no longer buying jewellery? Butchers no longer buying meat?

We still got fishing. Try it if you haven't! The rod is payed for after first fishing trip. And if you got 1 gold bar, use it on the river lure if you don't meet the rank requirement. Steelhead with worm and sockeye with worm or river lure. Boring af but good money.

Dude. If this isnt a bug, its deeply frustrating. The game has a lot of problems, money making is completely unbalanced, and the first thing they do is nerf profitable activities? Wow.

whats next? Removing animals from farms? From the world? Removing fish?? Just drop a nuke in the world then.

Yeah. I'm not surprised in the least if this does get nerfed, and the defences some offer are pure comedy. But it's definitely another nail in the coffin IMHO if true.

I knew this would happen. I’m sure they will add a cool down, money nerf or some other thing to hunting soon.

It's things like this that makes them able to get away with everything, next thing they'll take away is fishing but you're probably okay with that also. You're probably okay even when they remove every money making opportunity because, "hey, we can still buy gold with real money"..

It's a bug. Been that way sometimes since launch. Just restart the game.

 

I've been getting a bug the last 2 nights where ALL wildlife just... just... disappears. The entire world becomes a lifeless void. Oh, I can hear them everywhere - including their running away from me. But they can't be seen nor interacted with (including fish).

 

Changing sessions fixes it, but sometimes only for 10 minutes or so. Seems to happen most often to me in Lemoyne.

Or maybe this is telling us they are not going to do a reset...? (think about it)

But still i dont trust them...

I’d rather start the game again than play in a lifeless world without animals or fish. Or than having stripped features in a game that already is just a shell of itself. But yeah maybe you are right.

 

@RayD70 well thats reassuring, thanks. Ive had this bug where the animals were gone so it makes sense.

 

@Happy Hunter please update us when you have the chance! Did a restart fix this issue for you? Ill try it myself later today.

You dont know what you're talking about. I NEVER ptw in any game. Even bought the cheap as version. I'm not okay with them removing egret farming. I wrote what i wrote to be friendly and help you make money otherwise

Seems like the outrage is a bit premature here and this is actually just a bug, though I haven't confirmed it for myself.

 

I do feel like a nerf is coming though, I earned about $500 in 2 hours with a rod and a river lure on the dakota river nearest Strawberry catching Salmon.

 

I'll be doing it as often as I can before the next patch rolls out because I imagine they will either drastically reduce the spawn rates of these fish or just straight up nerf the prices.

Maybe, but long term GTA:O gamers know this could just be the beginning too. Either way, I'll just not be surprised.

I am going to need a bigger like button dude ! Always never liked the defense of horrid practices.

As discussed in another topic (dynamic sessions)

 

It seems, if it is not a bug, that R* can now actually make changes to the game without making you download an update! 

 

If that is confirmed, then I guess we have something entirely different in termes of game network and administration than gta online. Any thoughts?

They have been able to make changes in gtao without needing to download a update so it's relatively safe to say they can here also. At least to disable so people can't sell things like this topic is about 

 

Edit: This is probably like tunables in gtao or background scripts like they use to patch money glitches in gtao
