We need some clarity on hunting with others. Some admins have told me it is okay to share meat, and some have told me it's not. What is it? We need an official, public answer. I was told that the reason the hunting animation time was increased to 45 seconds was specifically so that people could share the meat without it becoming overtuned.
Regardless, it should be okay to share meat with others. Hunting is a fun group activity, both in the server and in real life. A big part of the enjoyment of hunting is doing it with other people. And in real life, people SHARE the contents of the hunt. There is no reason that each kill should belong to only one person if a group is doing it. It's not realistic, and it's not fun. If you want to say it's powergaming, I disagree. It's powergaming if people aren't actively hunting and just taking the contents, sure. But everyone who is shooting the animals and is hunting actively should be able to get a cut. So why not just make it so that everyone has to be participating in the hunting in order to get the contents? That's the most fun and most realistic way to go about this.
If for some reason you guys still decide to not allow people to share the meat, then please decrease the hunting animation time.
Any comments on this would be appreciated. Thank you!
