Update 1.2 - Civil Engineering

Hey Everyone,

It's time for the update you've all been waiting for! DTO v1.2 is without a doubt our biggest update yet, seeing full reworks to in-game visuals, performance, stats, an engine update, and plenty more.

Read on for the full patchnotes.

Major Changes
  • Rendering rework
    -Previously, Down To One used a custom rendering setup to overcome a number of issues within Unity 4, and also made things like "hands-over-UI" possible. Since DTO is now running on the Unity 5.4 beta, we've been able to get rid of most of this custom, hacky code and replace it with cleaner, shorter methods that lead to less bugs, higher performance, and better visuals.
  • New PostFX
    -Post-Processing isn't a term that everyone thinks of fondly, but DTO's newly updated PostFX pipeline, PRISM, has been built specifically for performance, and outperforms any other Post-Processing system for Unity by up to 500%. Not only that, but our new PostFX also get applied to the first-person camera thanks to the rendering rework, meaning that your characters hands + gun no longer look out of place.
  • Reworked visuals
    -New textures, shaders, and color correction all add to the new Down To One experience. Add custom reflection maps for each area on the map, improved shadows, and no more occlusion culling bugs, and DTO has never looked so good.
  • Reworked ADS
    -Previously, ADSing in Down To One 'glued' the camera to the gun, which meant that recoil when ADSing was not very visual. Our new ADS rework not only fixes this, but also gives certain guns different ironsight positions to better correlate with how your character would actually look down the sights.
  • Introducing the MP40
    -A new patch wouldn't be perfect without a new gun, so the MP40 has started to appear in various military outposts & watch towers in Down To One. Firing slower than all other SMGs, but with very controllable recoil, and slightly higher accuracy, the MP40's 32-round 9mm magazine is a solid choice for close to mid range combat.
  • Reset perks, cash and stats
    -With update 1.2, the 'season' has been reset, so everyone starts out again on a level playing field.
  • New perk - "Build A Wall" (Cost: 15 Perk Points)
    -Your skills in border protection allow you to solidify the Playable Area for 60 seconds, turning it into an impassable wall and increasing damage dealt to anyone caught outside it for the duration.
  • Various major performance improvements

Minor Changes
  • Improved Main Menu visuals
  • Added end-game effect to transition out before the main menu
  • Increased reward on the High Roller perk to 500% (from 300%)
  • Decreased health bonus on the Armor Plates perk to 15 (from 20)
  • Buffed Demolition Expert perk extra damage by 100%
  • Changed the playable area so that it decreases slower at the start of the round - this should let players have a bit more of an 'exploration' phase before transitioning into combat, as well as increasing average round time
  • Various main menu bugfixes
  • Fixed stats not saving correctly
  • Various ingame bugfixes
  • Various changes to scale of objects
  • Server stability improvements

    So, as you can see, it's been worth the wait - don't waste any time, get out onto the battlefield and get ranking up again! Also, something we also wanted to get into this update is DX12 support, which unfortunately is still broken in Unity - as soon as it works, we'll ship it! As always, don't forget to follow Down To One on Twitter, and if you'd like Steam notifications for when matches are starting, don't forget to join the Let's Play Down To One Steam group.

About This Game

Down to One is a competitive survival shooter in a large, interactive, open-world environment. Start out with nothing, and use anything you can find in the environment to survive, and eliminate other competitors over the course of a brutal round.

Core Features:

  • Realistic Bullet Physics: With physics values from real-world guns, bullet drop, and dynamic bullet penetration, ranged combat has never felt so good.
  • Dynamic Looting: Everyone loves looting. With custom loot spawning mechanics, you'll find things where they should be.
  • Customization: Play how you want to - take perks that let you knock players weapons out of their hands, play dead to confuse your opponents, and much more.
  • Built For Performance: With support for 4K resolution, 64bit-only systems and DX11, your hardware won't get bored easily.
  • Advanced 'Netcode': Our networking system dynamically changes network update rates - 'tickrate' - as the player count decreases throughout a round.
  • Dedicated Servers: Don't settle for games hosted on someone's dial-up. Our high performance dedicated servers will make multiplayer feel like you're at a LAN.
  • Immersive Interaction: Interact with anything you find in the environment with & use it to your advantage.
  • Full Body Character: It's hard to have an immersive experience as a floating pair of hands. In Down To One, what you see is what you get.
  • Improved Anticheat: With a custom anticheat system, and authoritative networking features, we're aiming to tackle cheating head-on.
  • Responsive Input: Raw input sampling and competitively calibrated sensitivity. If you miss, it's not our fault.

Down To One is a promising battle royale game, but it needs urgent new updates, before is too late!

This is a highly bugged game and incomplete... But...
This game is an indie game, and for an indie team this is a big work!
The gameplay works well, is solid, the game is very funny, but it needs a lot of improvements and some additions.
The variety of weapons is very good, and the foods, survival, system is good too (better than H1Z1)!
A lot of bugs (some are serious) needs to be fixed because the gameplay and fun is seriously compromise.

I'm a developer too, I can understand the sorrow for an empty game and for a lot of negative reviews, but this is your fault.
Down To One is promising, the gameplay is solid, all bugs and gameplay mechanics can be and needs to be fixed and improving a lot, before release other projects, because other future projects sales will be damaged compromised for this conduct.
Please do not abandon this project, because it is solid and needs only finishing touches. This is an indie project i can understand!
The players are angry because they feel abandoned without news of game developments..


1) Return to Early Access, the game isn't finished!
2) Update Unity 5.4 beta in 5.4.1 Stable, many crashes!
3) Write news to explain the development state of the game (regular news)
4) Updates every month (1.3, 1.4, 1.5...)
5) Fixed various serious bugs as:
5.1) Players can see through walls
5.2) Transition from walking, running etc.. needs to be very quick
5.3) The animations and the walking is too slow, it needs more balance
5.4) Some wrong collider can block you from walking
5.5) The "waiting arena" is boring, enlarge it and make more aesthetic objects
5.6) Main menu buttons not respond well at mouse click
5.7) Set Static Server list to default if this is to set every time
5.8) The server list doesn't show number of player and ping (?/42, ?)
5.9) Exit Game button doesn't work
5.10) Some video options (as shadow quality) miss its settings

6) Features needed for a modern and fun Battle Royale game:
6.1) Player/weapons customization skin/accessories with a 3d model preview
6.2) The Skill needs to be reworked
6.3) After death you can give some skin/player customizations rewards, based on match rating
6.4) Team play, to play better with friends
6.5) Add more weapons (or same weapons but with different scopes/accessories)
6.6) Add accessories for weapons (scope, silencer etc..)
6.7) Rework and Enlarge the map
6.8) Armors and helms to find
6.9) backpack for increase items slots (start with only 3, 4 ,5)
6.10) Add some vehicles (quad, motocycles, jeep?)
6.11) 2 start match spawn: 1) random, 2) parachute
6.12) Add more sounds, enviroment, player, weapons
6.13) Add a portable map (optional with dome system) without player position and dome
6.14) Planes Bombing Raid
6.15) The Graphics and Textures need improvements (some are good, other are very bad)
6.16) The Players Animations need improvements

I trust in you guys, please make one of the best Battle Royale game!
Down To One can become better than H1Z1, the gameplay is more complex and various, only needs some tweaks.

Let's Develop Now!

This is a great game. Expecially for the price. The game is dead but that isnt the developers fault, so you cant necessarly leave a bad review for that reason alone. The ladders are a bit glitchy as well but overall this is a great game worth getting if you have an extra dollar lying around.

Joined a lobby. Was thrown into the stratosphere after shooting a box. Landed in the middle of a barren desert and see a green sphere (Deathmatch area). Walk inside, realize I am invincible, proclaim myself the prophet of the sphere and kill all non believers.

Dear jesus this game is broke.

Why?.......Oh why do you make me write a bad review? I'm a nice guy and rarely do I see or say negative things. This game? This game should still be in Early Access. It needs a hell of a lot of work.
The concept was cool. Battle Royal type deal. Scavenge for weapons and food. Kill the competition.
Problem is there is no competition. The one time I did manage to get in a match. I killed a guy and it crashes. Either that or someone rage booted me IDK. It was lame to say the least.
Then when you try to quit the game you can't. The exit button does not work. You have to force it closed with task manager. I tried telling support but it was like a fart in the wind. There hasn't been any activity with this game since I bought it. No updates, nothing.
Here I bought a 4 pack of this game to give to my friends but I'm afraid to.

If this game somehow gets updates and becomes playable? I'll gladly change my review.
In the meantime. My notion is it's abandoned. The devs have aborted this project. Leaving a sick and twisted piece of software to die on its own. Thumbed down to oblivion.
