    Dear Players, We are rolling out an update to remove the remaining Halloween 2018 content. (secret places, menu sounds, etc.) Next to this we have improved the vehicle system, fixed a lot of crashes, improved player performance and updated some other minor content. Let us know how your performance is after this update! Now, let's jump into the patch notes: Overall Updates: GENERAL: The Halloween themed menu music is removed again. Also backgrounds should be back to normal. Fixed a bug causing backpacks to un skin when logging out from a server. Fixed a bug causing private server settings to reset when saving other settings. Fixed major crashes related to the LOD / collection system. Fixed private server rental price of the event servers. Renewing a private server is 10% cheaper than renting (only if renewed before the server expires). Updated the Thai language translation pack. Car system improved. Keep reporting feedback. We are working hard on fixing the vehicle system 100%. CHARACTERS: Fixed a material issue related to the new "Walter" character. Fixed the store icon of the "Steve Mad Scientist" body part. Fixed / updated some character part names for the Steve character. RE-ROLL FEATURE: Some players have asked to make more skinboxes "re-roll-able". We have considered this but came up with the conclusion to not make event / limited skinboxes re-roll-able. The now completely unable to put that skin recipe in the re-roll window. It works very simple: a skin recipe can be inside multiple skinboxes. If ALL those boxes are non-rerollable the player won't be able to put that skin recipe in the re-roll window. As soon as ONE of the boxes becomes re-rollable the player will be able to put the skin recipe in the re-roll window. If TWO or more skinboxes are re-rollable, the player will still be able to put the skin recipe in the re-roll window and have a equal chance on getting one of the two boxes for THAT entry that skin recipe is in. And up etc. ROCKS: Fixed major issues related to the rock and collection system. Fixed major common crashes related to the rock and collection system. Completely reworked ALL the rocks. Lots of them were VERY unoptimized. All rocks are completely reworked where we have optimized all of them, improved quality, added LODs (for better performance) and for some of them we updated / improved textures. NOTE: If you experience any issues / visual problems with rocks after this patch, let us know so that we can keep on improving them. NOTE 2: Players should feel major FPS improvements in maps such as Colorado, Oregon and Caliwood. We found out rocks and trees had were causing a lot of issues and FPS drainage. We aim to completely rework the trees for the next upcoming patch as well. For now, we did rocks as these were 70% of the issue and we don't wanna roll out a rock AND tree rework at the same time. Overall goal is to make you guys only "see" improvement (better textures) and at the same time have WAY better performance. MODELS Updated A LOT of building / object materials. Highered quality and updated / improved settings. Updated the barbered wire models / textures. These models were highly unoptimized. Re-made them completely and also optimized them up to 80% better. Fixed an issue related to the Halloween Event house where players could walk through one of the walls from the inside. Fixed the render distance of the white house. NOTE: If you experience any issues / visual problems with certain materials / textures after this patch, let us know so that we can keep on improving them. NOTE 2: We aim to keep on reworking and updating textures to give the game a better and overall new look. If you have feedback or ideas regarding this just let us know! Item & Skin Updates: FIXES: Fixed the item name of the "Thompson Valentine". Fixed to "Thompson Halloween". Fixed the item description of the Tuk Tuk vehicle spawner. Fixed the skin recipe name of the "M249 Halloween". Updated to "FN M249 Halloween". Fixed the skin recipe description of the Thompson Halloween where it said Saiga before. Fixed / Optimized the Banana melee. It had 4000 faces / verts before and now only 200. Fixed / Optimized the Banana Chrome melee. It had 4000 faces / verts before and now only 200. Fixed some of the spray item names. Some didn't had the word "spray" behind. Fixed the FN M249 Halloween store icon and recipe. It was showing the wrong ammo before. Fixed the Karambit Neon Dragon which was showing Red Dragon sometimes. Fixed the chrome texture of the K. Style NVG Black Night. UPDATES: Updated the Halloween 2018 Skinbox to a legacy skinbox as this box is no longer available and will never be available again. ADDITIONS: Added a new Spray of the clan STAR which won the Indonesia Cup 2018. Added a new Riot Shield of the clan STAR which won the Indonesia Cup 2018. ITEM PHYSICS: No more flying items! We have completely fixed all the item (& skin) physics in the game. A lot of the items and skins had missing physics or incorrect ones. We have cleaned everything up and fixed everything. Note: If you play with item physics on and you still have certain items flying, please let us know! This will also improve performance for players and possible errors related to the item physics system. Fixed physics for weapons. Fixed physics for skins. Fixed physics for skinboxes. Fixed physics for all other dropped item. Open World Updates: LOUNGE: Removed the Halloween Event places. COLORADO V2: Fixed the problem with missing buildings for example in Boulder City. Removed the Halloween Event places. Removed some rocks close to NATO, there were to many before. COLORADO V1: Fixed the problem with the missing bus stops. Removed the Halloween Event places. Fixed there terrain next to Camp Splinter where player getting stucked after jumping in to the water. Made the night a bit darker. (community request) Fixed the metal fenses in Campos City which didn't had physix and player were able to walk through. Added global ambient scary sounds to the map.

Check here for the feedback thread. Fixed the loot of the island next to the Fool Shope Beach. Now it should spawn enogh items for 1+ player. Moved the player spawns around the motel/church which were kinda "death" spawns. Moved a player spawn between Military Compound and Silverville which was kinda a "death" spawn.

    I understand most of you are a bit half half. I have to say the short explanation by Chupa does not contain every single point, issue and example we have experienced. Right now, it doesn't really matter because Fred has already worked some extra on the vehicle system and it's starting to look a lot better for upcoming patch! Fingers crossed! Let's make cars great again

    I think it would be awesome if there was a version of the adventure backpack in survival mode. Not as hard to get as snipers.. but still very rare. This would be really good for people who like to spend most of their time looting (especially in oregon with it only having one safe zone giving you very long trips around the map)

    Dear community, As most of you might know, there has been an increase in car issues and crashes caused by them. We have been investigating and some crashes that do not directly involve the vehicles (as in you are not using a car) are being caused by their PRESENCE. Now, the issue is that we will have to review/rewrite most or all of the code related to it and therefore it will take a lot of time, that could be spent in other things within the game, like Competitive Mode. Since vehicles are mostly helpful rather than necessary (I mean, life IS easier with them, but you can and have lived without them), we thought it would be a good idea to disable cars everywhere to avoid these issues. Though this might be annoying especially for those PvE players, this will greatly reduce the frustration of dying while looting and losing so many items, in a game where looting is essential regardless of the game mode. Our idea right now is to disable them (WITH THIS YOUR VEHICLES WON'T GET WIPED, THEY WILL JUST BE INVISIBLE FOR NOW) but we do not feel comfortable making such a huge decision without hearing you guys out. Please vote on the Poll and you can comment your point of view and give us your feedback. To give you guys an idea on the issues, I'll leave some threads made by players.

    Hello, I am Barboz4 and in this topic I will try to list measures to revive the Battle Royale. As everyone knows, from time to time the mode has been losing players and with these measures we can improve. Remove the Arena and put Arizona back. Also remove the solo mode and leave Arizona and Tropico group. Whoever enters alone will be placed in a random group as has already been done. Before the first update you placed the Arena map, BR mode was full of people, after that update the mode began to lose players. Leave it as it was before, Arizona and Tropico group. The decline of the Arena is to enter and be empty, already Tropico you enter and is always full, but you always see the names of the groups that play in the Arena. The removal of ground mode is good for the players, that we will not have to play against groups in it, and for moderators who have received less complaints from players who abuse groups. Of course this has to be implemented with tougher penalties in the ban, everyone knows that the ban is not progressive, there are people who have taken more than 5 banishment and it continues being 12 hours. This way I leave my suggestions to improve Battle Royalle mode. 1 - Remove solo mode 2 - Who enters alone will be placed in a random group 3 - The banishment will be progressive and with a deeper analysis, 1 day, 3 days, 1 week, 1 month, permanent. 4 - Moderator monitoring the match in real time. 5 - Tropico and Arizona groups. 6 - More expressive gains as it was before. Thank you to those who reserved a space of time to read my topic and thank you!

    Good evening. As Zomekerrigan says, do not take cars off. I play pvp, but most of my time I can. Jet 2 waiters (Colorado V2 and V1) can rent for several me. I like to walk on the map to find the best lout. I enjoyed reading more during Halloween. Go to the villages by car. Jais more than 750 cars. So even if his spit of e temp and well temp pi. We repair more beautiful after. You may think that by removing the car you will fix the problem. I'm not sure of it. Black screen one time out of 10. Game crash to play on a map. Cross zombies. Shooting through the trees. And last the return of invisible zombies. And I forget other bug. I am one of the elders of games. You have deleted the snipers for the first time. Sa gave what the loss of players. After that were the DXs you changed. We lost more players. If you delete the cars you will lose other players. If you continue like that it is the end of the game at term. Thanks for reading me.

    At this point BR is dead. The playerbase is too small and spread over too many servers, maps, options etc. Every player lost just makes the situation worse and worse. This erosion has been going on for months and I could brag about calling this out half a year ago, but here we are. I dont want to claim that the developers are not aware or don't want to change things, but all measures to this point have proven to be ineffective at best. Some have even made the issues worse. In terms of strategy, the issue has been handled very poorly. 1) Stop doing what the people here or in discord cry for. I dont say you should stop listening to their problems, but 90% of what this forum wants will hurt the game in the long run. There is a reason why Riot Games ignores their subreddit. there is a reason why Blizzard does not try to please their hardcore audience. They are not representive and their wishes are bad in terms of game design. Hell get help from a freaking professional in that field or the trend will continue to eat playerbase. 2) There are other Battle Royale Games out there that do a way better job. There is no reason to stay with NewZ just to play BR. Once again the valid economical strategy for unbeatable competition is DIVERSIFICATION. The BR mode needs to find a niche, needs to have unique traits to attract people. 3) A long term plan needs to be established. to address the problems. These problems are very known and people cry about them everywhere -> low playerbase -> teaming -> bugs/crashes -> little to no change If you want to save this mode I would not continue the way you have been handling the isse to this point. (you know that far cry quote... definition of insanity... doing the same stuff and expecting different results..) Small changes now and then based on community feedback do not help. The last years have shown that. My recommendation: a) Cut BR down to one map and one mode. The map can change on a weekly basis, people can vote in the forum. You can implement small changes after every rotation based on feedback to keep the maps fresh and give players things to explore every time a map comes on again. This rotation is only there to ensure people can play at least a little BR b) Invest some time and resources into restructuring the game mode. Come up with major changes. Reinvent the gamemode. There have to benew features, solutions for the problems you currently have, a new look and better gameplay based on a general gamedesign philosophy. That process can take months and will consume a lot of effort, but if you really want to keep the game mode and ultimately the game, you NEED TO START INVESTING MORE INTO THE GAME If not, just continue milking the dying cow that is NewZ. I don't blame you for that. It is a legitimate decision. I am just sad as a long standing player and fan of what this game has been to me over so many years. It would hurt to loose it. Thanks for your attention.

    We found some problems inside the car settings mainly inside the stryker spawner and we might fixed the issue. But since the car system is so complicated, we can't really test it on the dev server. So we have to look how the feedback is after the next patch. Just a small infos for you guys

    Of course this in our interest and don't get me wrong here but Henkaku is not even able to ban / unban or look into ANYTHING related to this ­čśŤ Either way, in one way you have to understand as well that we can't really get to a point where we just ban EVERYONE instantly. Not a good idea either. I personally like: - Reverting the queue to 1 only, so; when clicking play you just choose a map and everyone joins the same one. Groups, solo, duo, etc. This is probably the only thing left to "revive" the player base for Battle Royale. - I'd also like to advance punishments further. What I mean with this is that a lot of players break the rules anyways, knowing they'll only get banned for X hours or 1 day only. It's kind of sad. On the other hand with the lower player base, we kind of don't want to ban every single player either. I like to aim to go into more punishable punishments that would actually give the player the feeling he gets punished so that he / she actually cares. Also, we should start banning for particular game-modes. So; it doesn't mean that player can't play the game at all. I am thinking about bans like that, or bans like "lock" their rank. Wipe items, stats, etc. What do you guys think? Great feedback overall and some good ideas and points! Great job!
