Don't shoot it, that'll just make it angry... nevermind, shoot it.

Welcome back! Another update just dropped and I'm glad I got it in good time! First things first, the patch notes!

Fixed a bug which caused some weapons to not be able to damage some objects that were in very close proximity to the player

Don't trust the dark

This update took me a while but I managed to dredge through the worst bits of troubleshooting I've had in a Loooong time. One of the issues I was experiencing was that weapons in the lockers were getting randomized in a way that heavily favored shotguns. Turns out that the list I was picking from was... mostly shotguns... oops! Now the weapons are properly randomized!

I like it!

One of the additions from last post to this one was lights for ladders:

Please don't trip up or down the stairs

I added them because in the dark it's very hard to tell where the stairs are and it's understandable to bump into walls in the dark, but walking up stairs is kind of uh... not as reasonable. I haven't tied them to the sector's power at all so they're permanently on! Enjoy it while it lasts ;)

There's some new and changed things that aren't in the patch notes because I'm not the best at notetaking/keeping so enjoy the little bonus things that show up!

For now, I'm going to be working on putting together a list of things to add to the game for the future. Feel free to check the game out here: Secure.byond.com or join the discord to give feedback and suggestions here: Discord.gg

Until next time, stay in the light!
