The month of march gave us some much needed time to execute our plans for “Streaming 2.0”, which is what we’re calling all the fancy new mods and improvements we’ve made to our level streaming component - which in turn rewarded us with some very nice gains in framerate. In addition to focusing mainly on optimization, we’ve also added in our first iteration of a revive system aptly named “Nano-vive” since it relies on nano-med use (see below). @Zenity’s made plenty of nice progress on our WIP ranking/scoring system based on all of your feedback, and our crack audio team, @TomWrightSound and @AudioDev, were able to get a bunch of audio polish and new sounds in that were sitting in our backlog for a while. So overall, definitely a productive month and I think all you Alpha Testers will be pretty happy with the performance gains and polish you’ll notice over the weekend due to @Tomble nd @talun’s ongoing quest for frames.


If you haven’t seen the alpha schedule for this weekend, make sure to check out the announcement we posted in regards to Solos/Duos mode days and our dev hunt event hours: Alpha Wave 16, Dev Hunt, & Pre-Orders!

01467f713ff682479adfddf4af31fe4c

TL;DR

    • Substantial reworks to Swamp, Pirate Lake, Lagoon, and Tiki Hut areas
    • Nano-Vives added to Duos and Squads modes (revive system requiring a nanomed)
    • Match results UI and flow now provides better info on ranks and ratings. Last Match box in main now displays latest match report when clicked (artwork WIP)
    • Private servers added


NANO-VIVE SYSTEM


Keep in mind we’re still experimenting with this system and will be looking forward to all your feedback after Duos testing on Sunday and Monday.

    • In gamemodes duos and squads players if a player takes lethal damage, they will go into a Downed state. There is no overkill.
    • Players can only revive their team mate(s) with a nano med
    • Time to revive is 5 seconds
    • Downed players can hold the interact key to slow blood loss but will not be able to move
    • Downed players will not be able to access their inventory (this means they can’t drop a nano for their teammate to use on them)
    • When revived, players have 25 health
    • Players have an unlimited number of revives but bleedout time speeds up each time

Looks like a direct rip off from Crysis + some CoD and arena. Even your posters.
