Hi all, Sorry if you were expecting 1.2 but I saw a lot of you had high expectations for something magnificent so decided to keep it in the 1.19's (Yes my version control sux!)
A large selection of issues fixed today:
Personal shield is no longer overpowered.
A plethora of weapons especially for the tanks have now been re balanced, it seems for example the Mini gun was doing 2x more damage then it should of been doing per shot.
Aircraft factory pathfinding has been fixed.
Can now only build 1 security control room.
No longer able to rotate the camera.
You should now be able to hear the base self destruct when not looking at it.
No longer able to sell the powerstation when its cooling has been switched off.
Turrets no longer shoot when you have ran out of power.
Drones no longer teleport.
You should no longer be able to teleport through walls.
Flying into the air and jumping onto roofs as now been limited.
Drones should no longer bob about lost and drunk.
Pressing E should now only work when you are in the specific unit.
Windows 10 logo issues should now be fixed.
If you are still having an issue choosing your logo which also causes the game to crash, your computer may be having issues with Windows so I have added a new button under Options-->Gameplay-->Disable Custom Logos. Reboot the game and this should hopefully fix the issue.
There is a little FPS dropping issue I will be investigating next.
People were asking for an upgrade to the standard bullets so I have added a heavy bullets, they have a lower rate of fire but do more damage, feel free to let me know if they are any good. My testing has put them just above high energy beam laser in terms of ranking.
The AI's attack strategy has been altered so it wont target just one pick on one player and not attack anyone else even once that player has been destroyed.
The hacker bot is back from its winter holiday.
Base will now self destruct if you are in a team game with other players and you die.
Asteroids should now explode on impact.
Tank and aircraft construction costs now show correctly.
Hit counter should only now show on your computer and not on anyone elses
Should no longer be able to build bunkers on top of other bunkers
The AI firing rockets should now predict where the target is.
A few spelling mistakes have been corrected.
Enjoy the new update.
I am thinking on making some changes to the research facility as it has become annoying more then anything. So what I plan to do is make it half the size, Iron chunks will be taken to the same drop off point as the Thorium crystals and the facility will help boost research times. Will see how testing goes.
A Quick hot fix added today based on some immediate feedback to the last announcement.
I have added multiplayer region support. Previously you were all going through European servers.
If you go to 'Gameplay' under the options menu you should be able to select your preferred region which should hopefully help with lag issues.
This is a new feature so I am unable to verify at this stage if people from different regions are able to connect to one another, if you can't please make sure you are set to the same region as your friends.
Also I have no control over where the servers are based so I apologies if your region isn't listed so best to pick the closest one to you.
