Jupiter Hell Beta 0.4.1!

We've been uncharacteristically silent the past month - there are several big features that we're working on that we hoped to include in 0.4.1, but none of them seemed to be close enough to make it in, so we decided that releasing an incremental small update in the time that the big features cook is better than keeping silent.

In the background we're mainly working on four big things now - the Vulkan API switch (which should allow an OS X version among other benefits), modular weapons, player data (statistics etc) and Io! We hope to finish all of those before the month ends, so gib us strength :)

In the meantime this version brings a minor overhaul of most of the games level generation parameters making caves smaller and grid levels less gridy and more open - you might spot new grid setups also. Also present is a balance pass, thanks mainly to the detailed writeup from Dervis (with comments from mosfet and Jupiter Tourist) on the ChaosForge forums. We're not there yet, but we're trying to get there! Of particular note is the buff to rocket launchers - they now have a range 2 explosion, and are guaranteed to appear on each Europa special level.

We've also swapped all the weapon models with new preset modular ones - you might notice differences between some of the "magenta" weapon flavors now.

Check out below for the full changelog!

We await for your feedback (especially on the new changes)!

NEW #309 - slight upgrade pass on all Callisto and Europa generators to break grid NEW #309 - couple new generator tile setups for Callisto and Europa levels for variety NEW #311 - all weapon models have been replaced with preset modular weapons CHANGE #318 - rocket launcher buff/rework - 60 damage with radius 2, falloff = 60/45/30 CHANGE #318 - frag grenades also bumped to 2 radius and 32 damage (32/24/16), krak to 40 CHANGE #318 - explosions respect wall side and LOS CHANGE #318 - rocket launcher is guaranteed to appear on every Europa special level CHANGE #309 - decreased size of all cave levels a bit CHANGE #314 - enemy balance - secbots moved 2 levels deeper, no reavers in callisto main CHANGE #314 - enemy count - more enemies - +1/lvl at Easy, +2/lvl at Medium +3/lvl at Hard CHANGE #314 - trait balance - Overkill nerfed a little, Shredder has no damage penalty CHANGE #314 - weapon balance - buffed regular shotgun to 32 damage, pistol accuracy at range lowered CHANGE #314 - removed generic damage amp CHANGE #305 - savefile and hall of fame are now compressed CHANGE #280 - Pain and Dodge are not hardcoded, just buff/debuff effects FIX #310 - Point Blank trait fixed

Next update (0.4.2) should be out in 2 weeks resuming the regular schedule - hopefully it will bring us the finished player data and new gameplay features... if we're really lucky, maybe the first Vulkan version :P
