Patch 2.27

Recommended Posts

I love the Christmas update. It wasn't easy but not hard to get the boxes. The spawns for the trees were weird though. One day there would be a lot and the next there wouldn't be much. The contracts for really fun.

Dear Community,

 

Welcome to the pre patch notes of patch 2.27. At this moment we are done with all the testing for this update and we will release the patch tomorrow morning. This patch is mostly aimed to add all the content needed for the big Christmas 2018 event we are doing but it also contains a lot of smaller fixes and improvements.

This is going to be the last patch before the end of 2018 so we'd like to take this moment to thank you all for all the support over the year. You guys are truly amazing and we aim to do even more awesome stuff for the game in 2019. We wish you all a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!

We have some awesome stuff planned for the Christmas 2018 events and it's going to be epic so stay tuned later this week for the further full announcement. Now, let's jump into further patch notes:

 

Christmas Updates:

  • Changed the menu music to some nice warm jingle bells music. Enjoy!
  • Christmas trees have been added to the officials maps. They won't have loot until the event starts.
  • Added further Christmas content. (Will be announced soon, see below)

For further information about the Christmas 2018 events keep an eye out on our forums and social media channels where we will announce what's happening. We have planned a lot so be ready!

For all the information about the Christmas 2018 events we ask you all to go to: http://playnewz.com/event/

 

Overall Updates:

GENERAL:

  • Cleared up some space in the public game files. Total game file size will be decreased a bit. We do this from time to time to clean up a bit and have new players download the game faster. (Note: won't apply to players who have already installed the game.)
  • We decided to remove the spawning cars from the official server. From now on you will be able to find car spawners again and you will be able to use them on premium and private server. We are planning to add them back as soon they are fully fixed.

TREES:

  • Fixed / Updated the dead pine tree variants. Before the leaves were black tinted and now all the leaves are gone so just branches. This makes more realistic sense.

  • Added a new specialist contract for the Blaser R93. There is a PVP and a PVE version of this contract.
  • Added a new specialist contract for the MP5/10. There is a PVP and a PVE version of this contract.

MODELS:

  • Fixed the render distances of some electrical power boxes. This was a problem in some maps.
  • Fixed the truck trailer models. Optimized them and created LODs to improve performance. Also created another variant.
  • Fixed an issue related to the small market model where in the back room the ceiling wasn't properly connected to the walls.

  • We are going to check the entire loot table of Survival. We have seen a lot of feedback from players which were asking us, why are some items are not spawning. This can happen live without patching.

You can read more about how this exchange will work under the Colorado V2 (Survival) part of these patch notes.

@SvenThe patch was good for what you did, however its not what most are asking for from what I hear. Maby there are these people Ive never seen that want training maps and things like that but I think you are working really hard on things that are just not being asked for at all.
