Big patch time! We've got new things, improvements, fixes, balance changes and more. We'll briefly touch on the fun stuff, but be sure to dig into the sections below for all the details.
What's new? How about some Ultimate Bombs to start? Almost tactical nukes I'd say--new explosion effects were needed to convey the destructive power. Do you love Bucky? Of course you do, and now there's a little pet version of him that becomes Bucky Head in ground mode! In the running for most awesome thing ever. Want more Diamonds? Well the Diamond Mine Blueprint is now available for any VIP to unlock. There's also a Swift Butcher alternate, and you can play your own maps in Custom games.
Wait what?! Yes, the first version of playing your custom maps with others is in this build! It's still very "alpha", but if you have Prime you can use the map editor to customize or create your own map, then "publish" it to the server. Create a Custom game, check the option to use it (make sure you edited a map first), cross your fingers, and you might end up in it! On the serious side, let us know how that works for you in the forums.
Carbon Games is thrilled to announce an exciting new change for AirMech: growing crops! Do you live on a farm? Do you like to farm games for Kudos? Well now when you're on your farm, farming AirMech games, you can also farm in your Basecamp!
Everyone should have two Shovels they can use to clear space in their Basecamp (upper left corner) and build their very own home! Start with a Base, then move on to planting some Wheat! Of course, you could also build a Hangar, if you are into that kind of thing.
Is today April 1st? Yes it is! Is this a joke? Excellent question! The Basecamp is a little buggy, and you might need to restart AirMech after you start growing something. Where do we go from here? That depends on how funny people find the joke...if it is a joke? There's actually a lot of really neat features that can expand from here, making unlocking access to things make more sense than simple checkboxes. We can expand this to show more about the setting and how players connect with the larger world around them.
We also have a ton of updates and bugfixes in this patch. Loadouts have been reworked, allowing you to save part configs per AirMech, making it so you can change skins without removing all your parts. Note this means all loadouts are reset, hopefully for the last time! We're also standardizing on 100 Part points for now, though in the future the PvE loadouts will be able to get more. PvP will remain fixed at 100.
Be sure to read below for the full list of additions, bug fixes, and balance changes. Note that Parts are in the middle of a major rebalance and will continue to change over the next couple patches.
Two Portal themed items are now available to all Steam players:
Companion Cube - Found in the ruins of a long abandoned facility, there's something about this utilitarian cube that compels you to keep it at your side. It follows your AirMech in battle acting as a faithful companion Pet until the end! Can be equipped in a Flair slot on any AirMech.
Sentry Turret - Blueprints for this turret were found in a large underground facility in use before the War. They seem to have been designed for use against humans, so this version is equipped with armor piercing rounds to make it more viable against the robot armies used in battle today. They are light and cheap, only effective against weaker units, but you can build a lot quickly to make them useful.
