If you've activated a Scent Capsule but no creatures spawned from it, here's a few things to consider beforehand.
- Did you notice any creatures appear on your map before activating the Scent Capsule? If no creatures appear on your map before activating the Scent Capsule, it may signify a different issue affecting your creature spawns altogether. If the case, we recommend rebooting the app a few times until you see creatures spawn on your map naturally. If they start spawning in, it may then be safe to activate your Scent capsule for additional spawns.
- Did you activate the Scent while in a moving vehicle? Creatures will spawn where the Scent Capsule was initially activated and have a tough time catching up to DPG members on the move. We recommend activating your Scent Capsules starting in a stationary position without the possibility of suddenly shifting locations, to ensure any creatures attracted to the Scent can easily find you!
- Did your creature spawn next to other creatures? To identify which creature was attracted to your Scent specifically, look for the one with the mist-like visual surrounding it. This signifies that creature was spawned as a direct result of your Scent activation.
- If you've ensured everything above but still no creature spawns upon the Scent's initial activation, try waiting a minimum of two minutes and walk around the surrounding area to see if any creatures get attracted. If after a minimum of two minutes you see no creature spawns, try rebooting the app and see if that helps. Scents last between 5 to 20 minutes (depending on the Scent Capsule type) which should then give you enough time to activate it and reboot the app if you continue experiencing creature spawn issues with it.
