Patch Notes: Version 1.0.25 (Experimental) - Boats and Hovercrafts!

New patch (in the experimental branch)! People have been asking for boats, so I've added them! I've also added hovercrafts, these can be used as an all-terrain vehicle.

Hovercrafts can HOVER, hold JUMP to hover. Use this to get up hills!
Hovercrafts can BOOST, hold SPRINT to boost.

I've also changed the stance for players/bandits holding weapons. If a weapon is loaded and a mob has a target (or is alerted) then they will draw their weapon. If they don't, or they are reloading then it is held at their side.

This patch is in the experimental branch as it adds a new software library and I want to make sure that there are no stability issues first. There is also only one spawn for a hovercraft and that is to steal it from a Sea Bandit Base (in a post 1.0.19 map!). You can buy boats and hovercrafts with 400k credits.

Above: The legal spawn point for Hovercrafts, in a Sea Bandit Base

VERSION: 1.0.25 - 18/12/2017
- [Feature] - BOATS! Added a Boat that can be driven!
- [Feature] - HOVERCRAFTS! Added a Hovercraft vehicle that can also be driven! This also has a Boost and a Jump mechanic, so you can hover your way out of water onto land and climb some of the terrain in a hills area.
- Hold JUMP to jump in a hovercraft
- Hold SPRINT to boost
- Hovercrafts have a boost bar
- Hovercrafts will draw the two players inside of them! If you are holding a weapon it will show you wielding the item
- Hovercrafts SPAWN at sea bandit bases (assuming your map was created in 1.0.19 or later)! They appear in the section up the stairs.
- [Feature] - When a player, a bandit or an NPC is brandishing a loaded weapon they will hold it straight forward. When you/they are reloading, or they have no target, it is held at their side.
- [Feature] - Added a sprint bar
- [Misc] - Construction items can no longer be used while in a vehicle
- [Misc] - Default "go down" button for helicopters is now the crouch key (instead of the meta key)
- [Bugfix?] - "Async Geometery Upload" is now disabled by default as it is suspected that its causing stability issues on some machines
- [Modding] - Added getSprintKeyDown() and getCrouchKeyDown() methods for PlayerEntity
- [Bugfix] - Fixed water physics not applying rotations to buoyancy points, meaning that physics got weird for vehicles in water
- [Bugfix] - Fix for vehicles launching across the map in multiplayer
- [Bugfix] - Converting captured Bandit Bases to bases no longer costs an arm and a leg

Patch Notes: Version 1.0.23 - Improved Pathfinding, Headshots, Mechanism SFX

EDIT: Upgraded to patch 1.0.23, fixed an issue with chests, moved to Beta stream.

News for 1.0.22:
The big change for this patch is that foot AI's pathfinding has been improved, particularly the handling of stairs and doors. Mobs did have abnormally large hitboxes that caused them to get jammed in places, so their hitboxes have been slightly reduced to be the same size as the player's.

Because of the hitboxes reduction they have become slightly harder to kill. So I've added Headshot damage multipliers to all weapons. You can view the damage modifier by mouse-overing the weapon. For example, Assault Rifles will do 2.0x damage if you shoot your target in the head.

Also because the AI more aggressively opens doors I've added sound effects for doors, sliding doors and mechanisms so you can hear them coming!

For server admins and people with lots of lotpacks: A list of lotpacks installed on the server will be displayed when you connect to it. Also buildings that you have installed in LotPacks that are not present on the server will be greyed out

Finally I've added an option in the Graphics Settings Menu to disable Asynchronous Geometry Upload to your GPU, as a few people on Intel drivers were having trouble with it.

VERSION: 1.0.23 - 31/10/17
- [Bugfix] - Fixed chests being bugged (deposits/withdrawals not being registered). The chest item duplication checker is also now disabled in singleplayer.

VERSION: 1.0.22 - 30/10/17
- [Feature] - Implemented Headshot damage
+ Pistols do 1.5x Headshot damage
+ Assault Rifles do 2.0x Headshot damage.
+ Shotguns do no extra Headshot damage (1.0x)
+ SMGs do 1.15x Headshot damage
+ Rifles do 2.0x Headshot damage. To compensate, rifles damage is been reduced from (30->56) to (20->40)
- [Feature] - Added sound effects to most mechanisims. This is important as mobs will more aggressively beat down doors now
- [Misc] - Buildings that belong to LotPacks that are not avaliable on there server you are on are greyed out.
- [Misc] - Added an option to disable async (multithreaded) geometry upload as some machines were crashing randomly
- [Misc] - Added the linux_server_admin_scripts_and_instructions/ folder to the server build
- [Misc] - Foot CDF will now run and sprint after you.
- [Misc] - Mobs will jump over cars that are blocking thier paths. If they are jumping over cars and are under a roof they will crouch
- [Misc] - Pathfinding for Mobs improved. They can climb stairwells a lot better now. I've had CDF chase me to the rooftops of office buildings
- [Misc] - Foot CDF are more aggressive at busting into buidings. They will beat down wooden doors, open roller doors, etc to get to you now.
- [Misc] - Hitboxes for Mobs are now the same size as players. They were 33% wider making them get jammed in places
- [Misc] - The AI will now preferentially path though closed doors it can open rather than blowing up a wall
- [Bugfix] - Fixed walking sounds being present after death
- [Bugfix] - Fixed an issue causing the AI to abandon its target based on the time since last scan for targets instead of time since last target sighting
- [Bugfix] - Fixed multithreaded race condition with logging
