Build 1537 - Quality of Life

Hey guys, mostly a "quality-of-life" build this time but also brings some important balance changes and content.


Prepare to get creative!

Before we get started, there are a few minor issues that have bled through from TR development into KAG, the "big" one is that fonts are smaller in various places - including the "Respawn In" dialogue and the loading screens. The old fonts will be back as soon as we find out exactly where they should be changed back properly (rather than a band-aid fix). If you notice any other strangeness please let us know ASAP so we can fix it!

Major Changes:

  • Mechanisms in Sandbox:
    That's right, mechanisms are finally available for building in sandbox and mods; along with a fancy "paged" building menu. There'll be a guide coming in future about how the mechanisms system works with examples, but for now they're there to play with and can be saved into custom image maps with the usual /savemap setup - this works for loading (for example) an unpopulated TDM map and adding in traps to the design. Be sure if you do later editing of the image that you use an image that can handle transparency - no MSPaint for mechanisms maps I'm afraid!
  • Surrender Vote:
    There are some games that end up very one-sided - rather than having 5 players yelling "please cap, please" and the entire enemy team destroying your base for twenty minutes before they finally realise theres a flag to take, you can now "gg" out of the game with a vote. We'll be monitoring abuse of this currently experimental feature but we earnestly hope it'll help ease the frustration of a stomp.
  • Vehicle Conversion:
    There's a new GUI and better mechanics for vehicle conversion, based on live players within a generous radius - this allows capping siege engines from a little further away, but also allows defending them; the time to convert is also a bit longer. We'll address the issues with spawning on contested engines soon.
  • Trap Block Behaviour:
    Trap blocks now can be opened by same-team players, much like doors, which prevents them from team-trapping people and limits the amount of damage a new builder can do in building their "genius trap".
    There is also a simple way to disable the new trap block functionality, which it utilised in TDM because some map designs rely on the old functionality.
  • Materials Back from Many Blocks:
    In particular, doors and trap blocks give a fair percentage of the materials used for construction back, which punishes misclicks less and allows counter-tunnellers to get rewarded for their trouble. Plaforms do not give material back at this point due to them already being ubiquitous and not being team-biased.
  • Wood doors decay Under Water:
    A suggested counter-tunneling mechanic that we're trying, stone doors and U-bends will have to be utilised more to defend against flooding in tunnels, rather than simply spamming cheap wood doors every few blocks.
Minor changes:
  • New Mechanisms:
    A motion sensor source block, directional wires for packing in dense designs, and a new appearance for the light component!
  • Cancel Building Button:
    Oddly this is one of the most-requested functionalities of new players coming to KAG from minecraft and the like; a way to put away any block. While it may not really affect you, a lot of players have a simple mental disagreement with it, so we've added a button to allow you to cancel building completely. Old players may or may not wish to use it.
  • Traders aren't in the way:
    Traders are now no longer able to block arrows, explosions etc at their posts.
  • Nicer TDM Scoreboard:
    More changes will inevitably follow, but we took the feedback recieved about the TDM Scoreboard to heart and made some changes; clan tags and usernames can now be seen, the spectators list renders correctly, and colours are back to indicate various user types.
Have Fun!

Issues with authentication

Hello,

We are terribly sorry for any problems that you're facing at the moment. It appears that due to KAG being featured in flash sale and some minor on-going issues with our ISP where the authentication server resides, many of you are having problems with logging in.

We are aware that timing couldn't be worse but please bear with us. We're doing our best to fix the issues.

Cheers,
Furai

It takes a while to get into, but this is one of the best games I have ever played. You have total freedom to build whatever you want, and there are multiple game modes (Although CTF is by far the best). The community is generally welcoming to new players, so don't be afraid to ask for help. You start with a couple of minutes to build up your castle, and then the game starts and everyone rushes to the center. You could build a tunnel to the other side, or a bridge, or try to rush them head on! Every match is different, and each server has different rules and maps. I had this game before it was on steam, and my hours are in the hundreds. The meta game constantly changes, as does the game. Sadly, the player base is only about 100 now, but there is never a problem finding a match, there are at least two full games running all the time. If you join, you can fix that problem! There is even a roleplay server! If you are on the fence about this, buy it, you won't regret it :D And you will make this awesome community grow!

If you're the kind of kid who drew little people fighting each other while your apathetic teacher regurgitated his syllabus, you're going to love this game.

Launched myself off a catapult. Landed on a guy, killed him, then glided over a body of water on my shield, chopped a guy, jumped onto a wall, then exploded.
420/69 would explode again.

Fun little game. Lots of kids though. You'll come across "go away my stone" kind of mentality and random votekicks if you tick off a wrong guy - server admin or one of his friends, and that would suck because there's only one or two servers that's worth playing in in any given time. I might be late for the party. Would've recommended this game when it first came out; despite some annoying bugs it still is a very well made fun multiplayer experience. Now, Feb 2015, no.

Pros: Fun! - and a ton of stuff that other folks have written about which I wouldn't bother to repeat.
Cons: Not too many people playing it nowadays. Primary demographic seems to be 10 year olds whom grief and votekick people for tryingh to help them win the match. Official servers might alleviate this problem but they are practically empty.
