  7. New patch this morning:

    Branch: Stable

    ETA: Complete

    Version: 0.33.114926

    This build continues with small bugfixes and several engine changes. A late addition of a significant change to the server variable processing has provided us a major performance boost on the server of around 5-10 FPS. This helps with a great deal of issues and results in a much smoother game experience from players even on a smooth server. Once several more of these optimizations are made it will allow us to increase player/zombie numbers and enable loot and zombie respawning.

    ETA: Complete (Being pushed now)

    Version: 0.34.115106

    This update was released to Stable as a critical update outside of scheduled maintenance. This was because of a serious issue with the connection logic that could trap some players in the "dead" state. There was also a critical bug with looting other players inventory. These have been fixed.

    • Actions: Could not cover another players head with a burlap sack
    • Actions: No longer spawns clones of sack after Remove Head Cover action
    • Actions: Removing Head Cover (burlap sack) while inventory is full won't leave you blind and without burlap sack anymore
    • Art: Duplicate geometry in lower resolution LODs of flannel shirt resulted in visual bug at distance.
    • Animations: Fixed an issue where the player would stay zoomed-in in sights for reload while aiming in prone
    • Animations: Player should now be force-disarmed when clapping while holding a single-handed weapon.
    • Animations: Pointing and clapping now works even when initiated from aimed states
    • Animations: Fixed an issue where the left hand would stay glued to the FNX45 for aimed prone reload
    • Animations: Default rifle aim stance (stand and crouch) slightly changed to better fit different guns
    • Animations: Twitches on right hand fixed when holding an item while middle finger and pointing.
    • Crafting: Cannot combine ruined stacked objects (such as ammo, rags)

    • Systems: Players could get continually stuck in a dead character during load from central server
    • Systems: Players would not receive any falling damage
    • Systems: Disconnecting dead player would delete the body after ~30 seconds
    • Systems: Damage was being equally applied to all objects inside inventory slot when shot/damaged (now items reduce the damage when they take damage)
    • Systems: Notifier gets stuck on "stuffed"
    • Weapons: Ballistic parameters of all projectiles tweaked for more realism (special thanks to Gews for his great analysis on weapon characteristics)
