We're releasing two "Stable" builds today. V1.56 is an update that will immediately be released on the Steam default stable branch, whilst V1.57 is only available on the Steam Experimental branch. Our plans for releasing this on other platforms are explained after the changelogs:V1.56 Changelog:
- Fixed an issue with the mod manager deleting the entire mod directory when you tried to delete a mod
- Fixed an issue where the mod manager did not correctly save the priority order for deactive mods
- We've created an experimental patch for the shooting code that should verify miss shots are actually able to hit the tile they scatter to. We hope this will correct the issue where shots are sometimes noclipping through walls or otherwise behaving incorrectly.
If the fix in V1.57 does its job, that will be the last update we make to Xenonauts. The problem is that the shooting code was pretty complex even before we spliced some of the Community Coder additions into it when we made V1.5, so we're really not sure if it will fully address the issue (or if it may cause any additional problems).
V1.57 is therefore only available on the Steam Experiment branch - the old Experimental branch stopped working for some reason, so we've deleted it and created a new "Experiment" branch to do the same thing. We'll give this at least a week to see if it causes any major issues and if it fixed the issue as intended.
Regarding the Mac / Linux builds and updates to the non-Steam distributors - this is a lengthy process (it literally takes me most of the day) so I'm going to wait until Monday to see if there are any issues with V1.56 before I roll it out, as if there's a bug in it I'll have wasted all that time and the distributors will be annoyed at me. And if V1.57 proves stable a week after that, I'll do it all again one final time.
