  • [INFO] Update Incoming

    From Higby's twitter account.

    Matthew Higby ‏@mhigby

    We will have a game update tomorrow morning, mostly bug fixes, new SMGs, render distance tweaks & misc. optimizations. Enjoy!
    This was posted before midnight local time at SOE offices so I'm assuming hes referring to the morning of the 20th.

    Changelog post on SOE's forum. Looks like it's mostly a UI and Facility update.

      Smedley tweeted this a few hours ago:
      Server merges soon. Info coming by Monday.
      No server transfers coming till after that's done. Wouldn't be right doing it other way around
      Interesting.

      Also, the update is delayed until Thursday morning.

          Well, it's better than pushing it out before it's ready and breaking the game.

          Honestly, I am most excited about the render distance "tweaks". Hopefully it's being pushed out in general. It would be a shame if this were just a "MAX will now render from a slightly greater distance" or other minor tweak. The render distance is IMO the single biggest technical hurdle for the game now, especially since the hallmark of the game (huge battles) absolutely destroy your render distance.
          Teamwork and Tactics are OP

            Yea, I missed the chance to play on connery and see how it affected FPS/Lag, but hopefully they did test it like you said. We shall see.....

              Increased infantry render distance has been in effect on Mattherson for at least a week now. I'm surprised no one noticed it.

                Good to hear. I can't remember who I was talking to at the time, but I mentioned exactly this recently. Otherwise it's just money grabbing.

                Meh, patching big projects is always likely to break something. As long as it's only slight delays or they fix things quickly I'm happy.

                Really? Didn't notice at all.

                  Neither did I. I noticed TR/VS popping in/out more or less, but I wouldn't have associated it with render fix.

                    I've noticed this, I'm getting a lot more long range infantry kills (and deaths...). Maybe 200 meters? Sniper fire hasn't been too bad though, I'm more fearful of medics with their long range rifles.

                      Higby just posted a lot of stuff about future updates.

                      Details about roadmap schedule, new player website and server merges.

                        Wow is all I can say. I am very blown away by the effort that the Dev Team is putting into this - getting fixes in, communicating actively with the community, and shifting their focus based on community feedback. One of the teams I've experienced in my MMO lineage.

                            HAY! Don't some VS-TG people play on Sol-Tech?!

                            I hear they smell funny.

                              My Vanu alt on Matherson (SirJengles) approves of this.

                              My NC main on Matherson, and his gun, also approves of this.
