August patch (highlights only)

Post by ObsidianOne »

New aircraft - The Valkyrie is a six person aircraft used for close air support and transportation. It is crewed by a pilot and a forward gunner with room for four additional rumble seat passengers. These passengers sit in open seats on the side of the Valkyrie which allows them to use their personal equipment while in flight.

New Ribbons - Mentorship, Squad, and Platoon ribbons.

Hossin - 5 new bases, bug fixes, and a few lanes opened up for more open tank combat (as seen on work in progress streams last month).

Alerts - Removed Adversarial Alerts and reverted to the previous alert implementation.

Auraxium Directive Weapons - Balance pass on existing weapons, with heat (instead of ammo) added to the VS LMG, assault rifle, and carbine. All Auraxiam weapons now default to iron sights (6x scopes for sniper rifles) and have optics available for purchase.

Directives - Fixed an issue where Directive counts would reset.

Sunderer Deployment shield - Now has visual attachment on top of the vehicle with particle effects. (I heard a lot of complaints this wasn't in earlier, though no new UI mentioned)

Warp Gates - Players are again invulnerable inside the Warp Gates. (watch for invulnerability bug)

VR - Blast damage will now hit VR zone targets.

Performance/Memory/Crashes - Fixed an issue where players could end up in a bad state of hit registration after reloading and firing exactly as the reload ended. Fixed an issue where objects from one zone would sometimes appear in a different zone. Addressed a hitching issue.
