Update 8.2 is out - including 3 new levels!

Have a huge new update live. Here's the details:

New map: Epicenter


New map: Skate Park (based on workshop submission by Axogandr)

Features
  • Tired of flying accidentally off the top of ramps? Bots now 'stick' to the surface when moving up a ramp, giving you much better movement control.
  • Added level shuffle options ‘Random Large’ and ‘Random Small’, if you have a large or small lobby of players and don’t want levels that are a size mismatch
  • Added new ‘Arena Tint Lighting’, which is a dynamic pixel light that provides additional shading to arena textures with a small performance cost.

  • Fixed bug where FFA Team Colors from being applied in modes where 2-team settings were fixed and not selectable in match settings

Adjustments
  • You now shoot at the hoop that matches your team color, not the ‘enemy hoop’
