Airmen Update 1.8.2: Endless Sandbox



Join us on Discord for public playtests Friday at 12pm ET, Saturday at 3pm ET, and Monday at 7pm ET.

Airmen 1.8.2 lays the framework for an all new game mode with infinite map scrolling. Next time you load into sandbox, you'll be able to fly into the distance and visit all other maps. This feature is experimental and is likely to have a few quirks and side effects in other areas of the game, so, if you run into any, please let me know on the Steam forums or Discord.

The goal of the new mode is to build something fun for 1-4 players (but not limited to a number this small) as battles will leave you with the AI as the only opponent or siege mode will be impossible to win without a bigger party. The new mode incorporates all gameplay elements of existing modes but features exploring a map to find and harvest different resources and completing activities and events.

1.8.2

Major Features
  • Sandbox is now ~4 billion kilometers wide and contains all playable maps. There is nothing to do here (yet) other than explore the old terrains and is currently a test for a new game mode.
Minor Features
  • Massively improved load time between lobby and match.

  • Small performance improvement for terrain rendering. This will likely be offset in the new sandbox due to the distant terrains.
Bug Fixes
  • Fixed lever action cabinet build mode tooltip.

  • Fixed the challenge name display for lever action bash kills.

Airmen Update 1.8.1: Lever Action Rifle



Join us on Discord for public playtests Friday at 12pm ET, Saturday at 3pm ET, and Monday at 7pm ET.

Airmen update 1.8.1 brings an all new firearm: the lever action. The lever action fills the gap between the revolver and the carbine. The lever action fires slightly faster the the carbine at the cost of reduced headshot damage, so much so that the lever action cannot score a one-shot headshot. The magazine is large but bullets must be loaded individually. Finally, moving inaccuracy is greatly reduced compared to the carbine.

1.8.1

Major Features
  • Added a lever action rifle. The lever action rifle fires faster than the carbine, does the same damage, but deals greatly reduced headshot damage.
Minor Features
  • Very widely placed props will not apply additional torque. Limit begins at 5 unit offset. Heavy ships naturally take advantage of this and were pivoting much faster than light ships.

  • Added a new steering wheel option that allows for continuous adjustment of controls.

  • Increased boarding charge percent hp damage to 55% from 35%.

  • Ships can only have 3 control stations.

  • Added chat messages that inform players why their ships fail verification in the lobby.

  • The revolver starts to reload if you cock the hammer with an empty magazine.

  • Updated the carbine animations to take up more of the screen.

  • Updated the carbine inventory icon to be clearly distinguishable from the lever action.
Bug Fixes
  • Fixed a bug where harpoons fired erratically after hitting a moving ship.
