Patch Notes - 2017/01/17

Recommended Posts

Dear players,

It's been a while since our last patch / game update. We are sorry for this. Christmas, new year came through, but we're fully 'back to business' now. Let's get into the patch notes:

Overall Updates:

  • Global anti-cheat updates.
  • Beginner servers limit is now 72 hours. Players can play on beginner servers up to 72 hours now, instead of 24.
  • 'Streamer Accounts' are no longer able to join beginner servers.
  • 'Streamer Accounts' no longer have a legendary icon in front of their name in the tab list.
  • 'High jump' is now available in private servers again.
  • Christmas trees have been removed from all the maps.
  • Christmas zombies have been removed.
  • The 'FN FAL' and 'Scar H' are no longer usable on AR Only servers as those 2 guns are now considered as snipers.
  • Fixed the amount of glow on light swords and other glowing objects. - The glow amount is now reduced.
  • Fixed a major freeze / crash cause in maps: Caliwood, Colorado V2/V1 & Battle Royale. (In rd3log it would spam something related to 'terrain tiles') This is now fixed.
  • Fixed a major bug that caused random snipers to have random skinned scopes.
  • Fixed the Admin Kick Button for private servers on the menu.
  • Fixed the bug where players couldn't delete characters and got 'error code: 5'.
  • Item boxes no longer have a chance of spawning heavy armors.
  • Each terrain type (when shooting) now has it's own particles and sounds. When you shoot snow, the bullet hit partlicle would look snowy. When you shoot water you now see water partcles etc.
  • Before the game would use 1 default particle for every terrain type, now it will use different particles depending on what terrain type the player hits.
  • Reworked bullet impacts for each terrain type. When shooting metal now it actually shows random metal bullet hits, and when shooting wood it actually shows random wood bullet hits, & more. Before it would ONLY ALWAYS show the concrete bullet hit.
  • Fixed a bug that players could abuse to join AR / SNIPER ONLY servers by joining through the ''recent servers" tab.

Coming soon:

  • There will be more information about this subject as soon as the servers are down.

UI Updates:

  • Added a new feature in the global inventory in the main menu: players can now search for items in their global inventory. They can either do this by opening their global inventory and start typing or by clicking on the 'search' icon.
    ^ This search function is also available in the in-game vault. (when accesing global inventory while being in-game)
  • Added a second screen after players clicking on 'Battle Royale'. The reason we added this button in between is to avoid players from accidently clicking a Battle Royale and then instant join. Now if they click on the Battle Royale button accidently they still have a chance to click on 'back'.
  • This screen in between is also going to be used as a 'map selection' screen later when we finished our second Battle Royale map. (This map is still work in progress but coming soon!)
  • Updated the menu UI background and removed the christmas themed one.
  • Added to the options menu: a button to enable / disable the client-sided headshot feedback sound. (For players that don't want to hear this headshot sound confirmation)
  • Added to the options menu: a button to enable / disable the sprint sensitity change. In the past we've released an update that changed this but some players liked it and some didn't. That's why we added the option so players can decide themselves.
    ^ Please note that these 2 options are only changable in the menu OUTSIDE of game servers.
  • Added a little SafeZone icon next to a players nametag if they have spawnprotection.
  • Fixed a Crash Related to Accepting Rewards.
  • Spawn protection colors are now changeable and for sale. They can be bought in the marketplace and set on the 'customize' screen of your character. Each character can have their own spawn protection color.
  • NOTE: Please keep in mind that this is first release and some colors might not be entirely perfect. If a certain color is 'broken' please let us know so we can update / fix it. Available colors are:
    • Red
    • Blue
    • White
    • Yellow
    • Orange
    • Grey
    • Purple
    • Light blue
    • Pink

Sound Updates:

  • Added 2 new sounds for headshots. 1 plays locally and is an instant feedback on a player as soon as he shoots a headshot. The other headshot sound plays when you get shot in the head, your friends around you will also hear this.
  • We suggest players to test the new sounds out themselves to fully understand when what plays. Also something cool to know is that the headshot sounds ONLY plays when the server registered the headshot.
  • Added more variaty in the 'near miss' shots. (When bullets hit next to you these sounds play)
  • Reduced overall car engine sound. This sound was originally way too loud and is now reduced.
  • Reduced local sound of the TEC 9. This sound was also way too loud compared to other guns.
  • Each terrain type now has its own sounds based on what terrain you shoot. Also particles have been updated. (Check overall updates)
