+ Bug Fixes
I hope you enjoy the improvements that this update brings! Please be aware that there is a 20 CCU limit, and so if you have any problems connecting it may be better to try again later. I will be increasing this limit if it is needed in a future update.
I am currently figuring out how to create a fully functional cinema which will include a queue, user-requested videos, sitting in chairs, eating popcorn and much more!
Team Deathmatch has been delayed in this update, due to some problems with team spawning. I will be fixing this for the next update and it should make its debut in V0.09.
I have drastically changed the map for V0.08a. I feel like the previous version was too spaced out, and didn't have the effect that I desired. Of course I am a fan of quick fast-paced combat, and I wanted the teleporters to play a massive part in this, but they were the only way around the map, which was no fun. So, because of this, you can travel around several islands by "Island Hopping". This map is still early in-development, and do expect drastic changes in the future but for now, I am happy with it.
I have removed fall damage from this version. This is because of problems with the teleporting, where once the player had jumped through a tp pad, he would die from fall damage. Of course this caused problems and I am working on a new method of teleportation which will negate this from happening whilst also boosting the fun/tactivity of the game.
Thank you for reading this post! and I hope to gather feedback on the update, I may even stumble upon several of you in-game.
