would be nice if we could get like four 1-hour scents everyday. 1 for each zone and they all included parks and globals.

3 hours is rough. i usually fall asleep for an hour during each one i’ve ran, and running them from home only gives you access to dinos in the zone you are in most.


Do you know if beaches also spawn park spawns?

You know, they did that so players stay INSIDE. I just did a 3h, and still had 100% Yep, I was connected to my charger all the time!!!

I haven’t been to the beach since 1997, so no idea. Ideally, they should spawn crocs, dimetrodons, spinosaurs, and whatever aquatics if they’re ever added to the game in the future.

Couldn’t dart 3 uniques. I am not able to dart Argentinosaurus. Missing out on strike towers as those are not in my reach. @E.D

Refreshing that topic as most of the players base is under quarantine now, that we can expect it to last for some additional weeks or to have at least some kind of restriction on our movements and that a very valid proposition has been made regarding the Giga scents and has not been answered yet.
Once again, we thank you for this addition that sure is enjoyable for everybody. However, the problem of multiple players is that we are not making any progress as the scent is bounded to our local. We are basically stucked with building stocks of dna that we won’t be using instead there is a new hybrid in the future. Not talking about the fact that darting the exact same dinos for 2 weeks now, is kinda becoming boring.
Why would not you make a Giga scent based on 1 of the 4 different locals rolling out in each 6hours free incubator ? This would allow everybody to have access to the 4 different locals each day and to keep on making progress while being under quarantine.

@E.D Can you please address this ?


To make it fairer, since a 3h hunt in another zone that is not your local is huge…
Cap the Local Gigas at one.
You can’t save them, you get one, that’s it… until you use it.
That way, you push people to play and don’t let people abuse this new mechanics that aren’t there to push our game, but as quick fixes in time of need.

If everyone has access to a scent that allows you to dart dinos outside of your zone, then how would it be unfair? Same thing with the short-range joystick (Gyrosphere) idea I have. If everyone has access to a feature, then there shouldn’t be any unfair advantages.

A short-range joystick would solve the problem of out-of-range strike events and supply drops. I find it rather odd that these AR gaming companies are increasing events that require you to leave the house in the middle of a mass quarantine. Niantic is doing the same thing with PoGo, and it makes no sense to me!

My point, Deep, is that in my experience a 3h hunt outside of your local is not normal.
The giga scents and all the fixes are there as a way to simulate or equal our normal gameplay.

The idea of Giga-locals would push into the limit, I think.

That’s why some people suggested 1 hour local scents, or having the giga scents spawn completely random dinos from all locals

Quarantines and stay-at-home orders aren’t normal either, so I think it’s time to think outside the box and come up with ways for quarantined players to experience gameplay similar to what they do when they’re able to play outdoors.

I do hope they address the zone problem soon. From my point at least, zones would have taken priority over the extended range.

@E.D @Ned we don’t expect Ludia to make a change in the middle of the week but can we possibly have a feedback regarding the possible Giga scent alike but based on locals ?or do we have to wait until Monday to see nothing has been made, waste another week or witness once again a poor PR management if they were actually working on it while giving no info about it. There is also the request to make every different existing scent spawning two creatures all the way.

As these are legitimate requests that will help keeping everybody’s interest in hunting after nearly three weeks of darting the same dinos and that Ludia just recognized the situation will be lasting for couple additional weeks by extending the Giga Scent and Darts until May 1st, we should be entitled to see these changes coming.

Do you have any update ?
