The new build ‘Irwin’ is online with a number of new exciting features (and a lot of bug fixes) and we hope you will all help us welcome new players and community members to the game. We also realized that we hadn’t made a videolog in some time, so Reto.KenSolo and Reto.Colding went to work. Take a look here:
Now that Irwin build has been live for a bit we have gathered a lot of data on performance (and fixed bugs as fast as we could); we have gathered player feedback on the Warfunds system and we are looking at weapon usage and performance over time. So all in all this week has been spent hotfixing bugs on the live servers as soon as we noticed them and also gathering as much data as we can for future tweaking/balancing and general improvements. We are lurking on the forums, reading chat-logs and watching replays from the live servers to help us ID the most pressing needs so we can prioritize features and bug fixes in the most sensible way.
Reto.Injection is back! His zombie-foot seems to be mending so we are very happy to have him back (working on the resource system).
This weeks Intelligence Bulletin went out an hour later than normally, we were testing some things in the game (spawn delays, etc) and got kinda carried away in a mayhem of battle :-)
Have a great weekend everybody! :-)
The new build named Irwin (after the US General Stafford LeRoy Irwin) is online.
- Warfunds added, Assault Teams earn Warfunds by fighting and spend them on supplies and reinforcements
- True Triple Currency means no longer possible to convert gold to credits, but most items can be bought with either gold or Credits/Warfunds.
- German semi-automatic rifle Gewehr 43 added
- US M1903 bolt-action rifle (without scope) added
- First iteration of improved character equipment system
We are constantly working on improving the game, one of the very visible things is when we update the look of weapons and vehicles and this time it was the weapons’ turn for a haircut, shave and manicure in the binary beauty parlor. – Reto.Robotron3000
We are working as fast as we can to get the Gewehr 43 ready for frontline duty! One of the last things missing is the reload animations and I am currently finishing them. Following up on reto.Scratchliquid’s “Wonderful World of Weapons” post from Thursday, here is a quick look on the progress of the reload animation.
