3.28.0.0 Update Notes

TL;DR Workshop items will need some time to update, but the game should be more stable.

Explanation:

For a while Unturned has been using version 5.5 of the Unity engine (from 2016), but it's come time to upgrade. In recent years Unity has made stability a higher priority, and have been updating a "long term support" LTS version. The game is now upgraded to this 2017.4 LTS version.

While not particularly glamorous, some of the primary motivations are:
  • Taking advantage of newer optimizations in the engine.
  • Removing workarounds for old unity bugs which will help improve performance.
  • Supporting the Metal graphics API for Macs now that Apple has deprecated OpenGL.
  • Fixing many longstanding issues and crashes, and continuing to get the LTS fixes going forward.
The downside is that workshop content will need to be upgraded to this new Unity version as well. I don't take this lightly, this engine transition has been in the works on and off since early 2018 and I don't want it to be painful for devs, so I've worked to make is as easy as possible detailed below.

If you want to continue playing some workshop mods that haven't been updated yet, you can opt-into the previous version (3.27.2.1) from Unturned > Properties > Betas > unity-5.5. This older version will remain available indefinitely similar to the antique and classic branches.

Workshop Devs:

For mappers:

Maps with a /Bundles folder will be detected by the game as requiring an engine update, but other maps without custom content are unaffected.

For translators:

Translations and localization are not affected by the engine update.

For content creators:

Good news: there's a new tool to make bulk-exporting the .unity3d asset bundles much faster. I've updated all of the vanilla content to use this new system so I had to go through it as well, and Vilespring was kind enough to update all of the France bundles.

I've written up a guide which explains in-depth how to transition your content from 5.5 to 2017.4 LTS. Feel free to post questions and I'll update it accordingly!

Unity Upgrade Guide

For programmers:

The LTS version experimentally supports .NET 4.6 which seems to be working correctly in vanilla and rocketmod plugins, but this may be rolled back if unfixable issues related to it pop up.

3.28.0.1 Patch:

Incredibly, the majority of issues in the initial update were caused by the use of decimal points vs commas. Due to a change in how .NET read fractional numbers, all of them were set to 0 for players in cultures that use commas! Reverting this should have fixed the water, icons, gun stats, etc.

3.27.2.0 Update Notes

2018 Festivities:

Holiday cheer is in the air! Everyone aboard the Liberator has dressed up for the occasion and put up their decorations. Snow has built up in a few locations were you can now make snowballs.



Across PEI, Washington and Russia, someone (maybe the zombies?) has put up ornamental trees with presents underneath. They may have gifted you some high-tier weaponry! Holiday gift presents are now dropping as well, so you may find yourself with a few festive outfits in your inbox soon.

Raiding Balance Pass:

There may be subsequent passes based on your feedback to these changes, but the goals for this update were:
  • Horde beacons were an incredibly effective source of endgame items for large groups, but now have diminishing returns. By requiring a detonator, detonators now have an economy sink.
  • Machine guns that damaged bases with low caliber ammunition were too powerful, and in general damage against bases is lower.
  • Metal elements are significantly more worthwhile to build, while charges still feel effective against wooden bases. Requiring multiple charges to destroy a single wooden wall felt frustrating, but that may be adjusted later.
  • By reducing the availability of raiding equipment the default base armor multipliers hopefully can stay similar, but if needed the default values will be further tuned.
Patch Notes:

Additions:
  • Accepted several new time-limited skins to the stockpile from the curated workshop.
  • Added separate low and high-tier armor multipliers for buildables. Metal and bricks qualify as high-tier, and now have 2x effective health.
  • Added freeform glass plates craftable from glass windows. [IDs 892-894]
  • Added support for explanation message to server shutdown notice.
  • Added compatibility warnings for future workshop items using 2017.4 LTS.
  • Added weak grenade throw to secondary attack, and Strong_Throw_Force [1100], Weak_Throw_Force [600] and Boost_Throw_Force_Multiplier [1.4] to per-throwable configs. Previous throw force was 750 with a 2x boost multiplier.
Tweaks:
  • Tweaked Nykorev, Hell's Fury and Dragonfang to only take highcal ammo, and their buildable damage slightly lower.
  • Tweaked Ekho, Matamorez, Grizzly and Timberwolf buildable damage slightly lower.
  • Tweaked horde beacon drops to scale by the square root of number of participants, rather than linearly. For example 2 players get ~1.41x, 3 players get ~1.73x.
  • Tweaked horde beacon blueprint to require sacrificing a detonator.
  • Tweaked to require text confirmation when salvaging items unless CTRL is held. Previously only Mythical items required confirmation.
  • Tweaked rich text chat to not fade out.
  • Disabled movement clamps in editor.
  • Defaulted workshop server filter to on.
Fixes:
  • Fixed checking buildables you were already overlapping when mounting ladder.
  • Fixed climbing on explosive charges.
  • Fixed one-sided cliffs in PEI pirate caves.
  • Fixed snowdrift collision desync.
  • Fixed placing multiple structures at the same location at the same time.
Edit: BattlEye released an update shortly after 3.27.2.0, so Unturned included it in an 8mb patch for 64-bit Windows. This patch is optional and did not increase the version number.

About This Game



STAY UNTURNED
You're one of the few not yet turned zombie. Keeping it that way will be a challenge.

  • Go in guns blazing and attract the attention of everything, living and dead.
  • Take a subtle approach sneaking around and making use of distractions.
  • Confront and learn to counter special abilities ranging from invisibility to fire breathing to lightning attacks.

STRUGGLE AGAINST NATURE
Zombies aside nature does plenty to make life hard.

  • Forage wild fruits and vegetables.
  • Hunt animals for pelts and meat, or in some hostile environments become the prey.
  • Fish for food and garbage.
  • Plant a crop and make sure it gets rain.
  • Seek warmth and take shelter from blizzards.

DEAL WITH OTHER PLAYERS
Friend or foe there's a lot of interesting people online.

  • Arrest bandits with handcuffs and blindfold them as a non-lethal strategy.
  • Fight with every kind of weapon under the sun - swords, machine guns, snipers, missiles, landmines - you name it.
  • Raid enemy encampments using charges and detonators and steal their loot.
  • For pure PvP play arena mode in a last man standing battle to the death, or PvE for peaceful cooperation.
  • Roleplay servers encourage everyone to stay in character and tell a story together.

HELP THE NEW SOCIETY
Plenty to do even if you're offline or going solo.

  • Meet, talk and trade with NPCs.
  • Complete quests to aid NPCs and progress the story.
  • Fend off waves of the undead to clear hordes.
  • Secure airdropped supplies.
  • Gear up with gasmasks to scout radioactive deadzones.

FORTIFY YOUR STRONGHOLD
Somewhere to kick back and chillax or a hideout to direct your gang, whatever floats your boat (in this case sometimes literally).

  • Build with barricades, furniture, traps, machinery and more.
  • Board up the windows of existing structures to survive the night.
  • Craft an entirely new structure from supplies you collect.
  • Turn your vehicle into a moving fortress by building on it.

TRAVEL BY LAND, AIR AND SEA
Roll out in style with a fully stocked garage.

  • Land vehicles including tanks, quads and snowmobiles.
  • Air vehicles from helicopters to seaplanes to fighter jets.
  • Sea vehicles such as jetskis and hovercraft.
  • Maintain your vehicles with tires, batteries and fuel.

EXPLORE MASSIVE WORLDS
With 5 officially developed and 1 curated community created sandbox map there's a wide variety of locations to discover:

  • Prince Edward Island (PEI)
  • The Yukon
  • Washington
  • Russia
  • Hawaii
  • Germany

MOD EVERYTHING
From the ground up Unturned was designed for modding.

  • Download player created content ranging from guns to vehicles to huge levels from the workshop, and upload your own.
  • Build custom maps using the in-game level editor. All of the official maps were created with the same free public tools and their assets are open for you to use.
  • Write plugins using built-in or strong third party systems.
  • Get your apparel and skins upvoted in the workshop for consideration to be accepted and sold.
  • Team up with other modders and put together your own update for consideration to be officially adopted.

NEAT STUFF
I think these features are neat and they didn't fit anywhere else. There's many more I want to include but for brevity's sake:

  • Most objects can be destroyed to create new pathways.
  • For immersion you can pick a frequency and use two-way radios to communicate with your squad rather than external voice chat programs.
