I’m having the same problem, except it’s with creatures. Any creatures that are in Megalosuchus’s absolutely massive targeting radius cannot be selected. The game seems to prioritize Megalosuchus’s targeting over other creatures, that much is apparent. Sometimes the camera will even zoom into the creature before snapping back to Megalosuchus. Its targeting radius SIZE issues might stem from the fact that it’s a moving entity. My guess is to make sure that players would be able to actually select this raid, the targeting radius was probably increased too drastically to compensate for the fact that it moves.

The fact that it prioritizes Megalosuchus over other creatures doesn’t make sense, though. I can’t see any good reason keep it working this way, especially since many raid bosses have a targeting radius that takes up a very large area. There is a good chance that the game is still picking up on other creature’s hitboxes since the camera still focuses on them, luckily. This means that removing or reducing the priority for selecting raid bosses over other creatures seems to be the way to go if that’s a parameter that can be directly controlled and fixed quickly.

If it’s not as simple as tweaking a few parameters, then the devs may want to consider reworking how raid bosses function on the map.

Thanks for reporting this to us, Rinnah! Do you know if this happens with other Raid bosses as well or just with Megalosuchus?

From what I can tell it’s pretty much any boss (Saw it with Grypo yesterday). It seems as though anything that might be considered…“ground level” (such as strike towers or event dinos), gets overridden by whatever boss happens to be in that immediate vicinity, even if the raid boss has walked far enough away for a clear shot.

That’s definitely a strange one, Rinnah. I don’t seem to have that issue on the current device that I am using. However, could I ask you to email our support team at support+forums@ludia.com with your support key and device information included in the email so our team can investigate further?

I find that zooming the map very close to the Strike tower and then tapping on it can sometimes help as well.

Thanks!

I’m having the same issues. Zooming in doesn’t really help for creatures. If there was an option to toggle on or off seeing raid bosses on maps that would be one way of solving the issue

See that lion. I can’t dart it because of how the boss moves. @Ned could you tell the big guys to fix this, as every time I click on lion, it goes to the boss.

sad m. lion noises

On this Screenshot you can see a megalosuchus boss near that green tower with event Nasuceratops. Its impossible to get the nasuceratops and super hard to Hit the Green Tower. You Always hit megalosuchus.

BTW: the normal Megalosuchus needs a buff … its pretty weak since his rework :frowning:

Yes, this has been a problem since the boss was introduced. Last week I couldn’t tap a specific strike tower because the megalo’s hitbox was covering it even when the boss itself was across the screen. Tapping the strike tower would just zoom all the way over to the boss. I’m on Android.

The same thing happens with Grypolyth boss.

I don’t know of/never noticed any other boss that does this so I guess it’s just Megalo and Grypo.
Still, it’s extremely annoying how large their hitboxes are.
(especially if they happen to block access to an epic which happened to me twice :rage:)

I have this issue too

The hitbox of the Megalosuchus Boss is really large, when I clicked the Event Supply drop that is. literally 30 meters away from it, it direct me to the Boss Raid place, It is really frustrating to not be able to dart the creatures, this bug make literally no sense.

Already reported this bug. Unable to open chest…always open raid. Megalo hitbox is broken.

Thanks, I just wanted to know if I’m the only one having this issue.
