Update | Lifetime Personal Bests

What is it?
UHC has offered personal best information, broken down by season, for quite some time. It was brought to our attention however, that it would be useful to see personal best information across all seasons, without having to manually pick out the best from each season and compare the data.

This functionality has now been added. On the Personal Bests page, you can now find “All seasons” in the dropdown menu. Selecting this option will take your highest score and longest shot for each animal, across all seasons, and present the information in a single table.

Please note, you must first retrieve the data for all seasons in which you played the game. Once that data has been retrieved (you only need to do it once per season) it will be saved by UHC forever. To do this, simply cycle through each season that you played by selecting the corresponding number from the aforementioned dropdown menu, then click the Retrieve Data button.

Remember, you can filter the content displayed by entering keywords in the search field at the top-right of the table. For example, typing “score whitetail” will filter the results to show only your highest scoring whitetail deer.

Give it a shot. We hope you find this little add-on useful.

Update | Cookies & UHC Referrals

Mmmm, cookies!
Time for a cookie update. No, not those type of cookies I’m afraid.

If you visited the UHC website in the last 24 hours you will have noticed that we added a pop-up notification alerting to the fact that UHC uses cookies to help improve user experience. This is already covered in our privacy policy which you can find here. The members area of the website relies on cookies to function, but only essential cookies which contain no sensitive personal information or any information which can be used to identify you.

As part of the new GDPR legislation, anyone can now request a copy of all information held about them electronically. UHC is no exception to this rule, and therefore if you would like to know more about what information UHC has on record for you, please email dpo@uhcapps.co.uk.

Furthermore, anyone can request that all digital information held on record be deleted. Please note, in the case of UHC, this request would result in the irreversible deletion of your account. If you wish to exercise this right, please email dpo@uhcapps.co.uk.

We take your privacy very seriously and never collect more information that is absolutely necessary to be able to provide the service we offer. Please get in touch if you have any concerns about your privacy.

 

UHC Referral System
Unfortunately the UHC referral system had a small bug which resulted in some referrals not being paid out. This bug has now been fixed and a script has reviewed and made the appropriate payments for all eligible referrals. In some cases it is not possible to accurately determine whether a referred member had a valid membership at the time of being referred, and where this is true, the referral payment has been made regardless.

If you believe you are missing referral payments, please email support@uhcapps.co.uk with as much information as possible. We apologise sincerely for this issue and any inconvenience caused.

Update | Wishlist sales notifications

We have added wishlists to UHC. These are like those found on most other websites. A place for you to add items from theHunter store to your wishlist. “What’s the point?”, you might ask. Well, there are a few reasons for introducing this functionality to UHC. The first and most important reason, is to offer sales notifications whenever an item on your wishlist goes on sale. Other reasons include mainly gifting reasons. From time to time UHC hosts prize draws, and wishlists will allow us to gift wishlist items as prizes. In addition to this, UHC will be starting a new weekly wishlist incentive. More information on that coming in another update, very soon.


How does it work?
Really simple. Log into your UHC account then go to the Toolbox. There, you will find a Your Wishlist option near the bottom. Now you can start adding items to your wishlist. For the time being, wishlists are limited to 10 items. We may review this number depending on feedback.

To begin just start typing in the textbox. Any items matching your entry will be presented in a dropdown list.

When you find the item you’re looking for, left-click on it to select it. You can then either view the item, or add it to your wishlist. To view more information about the item you’ve selected, click the View Item button. This will take you to a page where you can see some basic information about the item, similar to that of the official store page.

From here you can add the item to your wishlist (or remove it if it’s already on your wishlist). You can also view the item in the official store, or you can go back to the main wishlist management page.

To remove an item from your wishlist from the main wishlist management page, click the trash can icon on the corresponding row, as indicated above.

Finally, to share your wishlist with fellow UHC members, click the share (or unshare) toggle switch.

 

Set Wishlist Sales Notifications
What good is a wishlist if you don’t receive a notification when an item on your wishlist goes on sale, right? Well, you can set your notification preferences under the main UHC account management page. Just click the Account tab on the main menu across the top, then scroll down to Wishlist Item Sales Notifications.

Select your preference from the options:

  • No notifications
  • UHC inbox notifications (an internal UHC message)
  • Email notifications (an automated email from UHC)
  • UHC inbox & email notifications

That’s pretty much all there is to it. Don’t forget to click Update Account Settings when you’ve updated your notification preferences. Then, when an item on your wishlist goes on sale, you will be notified as per your notification preferences.

 

Caveats
If you add an item to your wishlist after it has gone on sale, you will not be notified. The item has to be on your wishlist at the point when it goes on sale. Otherwise, it’s your responsibility to check the sales section of the main theHunter store.

 

View Shared Wishlists
If a UHC member has shared their wishlist, you will be able to view it on the Shared Wishlists page. You can find a link to that in the Toolbox. To share or unshare your own wishlist, remember you can flip the toggle switch on your wishlist management page here.

 

That’s all for now. Hopefully this feature will be of some use to UHC members.

 

Please post any questions or concerns here in the forum, thanks.

Another short update.

  • .30-06 Lever Action Rifle (Forest Camo) added
  • “Fuzzy Wuzzy” mission objectives updated due to grey Grizzly Bear fur variation bug in the game

Essential Server Maintenance

11 May 2018, 01:00 CEST (Europe/Stockholm)

We will be carrying out some essential server maintenance at the above time. This maintenance should take no more than 2 hours. During this time, the UHC website will be intermittently unavailable and will not function correctly. It is our recommendation that you avoid using the website between 01:00 and 03:00 CEST.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Update | Hosting terms, customisable profile pages and more

Hosting Terms & Conditions
As UHC grows and the number of members hosting competitions increases, the more important it is for us to set some requirements and guidelines for hosts. We have tried to keep things simple but welcome any questions or concerns. When submitting a competition hosting request, hosts will now be asked to accept the hosting terms and conditions. These can be found here.


Privacy Policy
UHC takes your privacy seriously and as such, we have added our privacy policy to the website. You can find it here. If any existing UHC members do not accept the privacy policy or wish to discuss their private information or account in more detail, please email support.


Customisable Profile Pages
This feature, still in development, will allow UHC members to build their very own UHC profile pages which will be visible to everyone. No need to be logged into your UHC account to view them. In fact, no need to even have a UHC account to view them.

The profile pages will show a lot of official theHunter data, much like you can find on your existing theHunter profile, only it will be organised and formatted in a way that UHC thinks is more informative and visually pleasing. Profiles will feature a vast number of customisable options, including but not limited to:

  • Background images (up to 100 to choose from)
  • Powerful graphing tools to show your theHunter and UHC stats in all their visual glory
  • Integration with YouTube for content creators
  • Integration with a number of popular image hosting platforms
  • Integration with Twitter and Instagram for sharing images and other information with friends
  • Display your UHC trophies and awards
  • Display your UHC achievement badges (also coming soon) and rank information
  • Unique widgets (16 and growing) for displaying theHunter and UHC information

Work continues on this project and we will provide another update very soon. In the meantime, here is a sample of what the first page can look like. Much of the first page is also customisable, including background image and the content areas at the bottom of the screenshot.

 

That’s all for now. Thanks for reading.

Update | Map Browser Improvements

Some updates to the EHR map browser.

  • mouse pointer is no longer a hand, except when dragging/panning the map
  • map panning function that will jump to a given set of coordinates and place a small marker
  • full-screen map option added

You can find the map browser here. The new controls have been added to the bottom of the page, below map. In the full-screen map, the controls are at the top of the page and the real-time coordinates are displayed at the bottom.

Coordinates should be entered in the standard format, e.g. 1024, -2048. You can also paste coordinates from a scoresheet.
