New content:
  • Novice Deathmatch: Novices will now be placed into games versus AI ships. They may opt out at any time, but this will give them a safe place to learn the mechanics of the game. This also makes novice games easier to make since they require half the number of players as from before.
  • New game mode: Skyball. In this sports inspired game mode, compete against your opponents by dragging a cargo barge into their goals to score. Steal the ball by ramming into each other for dramatic plays. Run the ball or defend your own goal!
  • New 4v4 Paritan Rumble! Try not to crash :P

Changes:
  • Revamped VIP rules to count escort kills towards the goal score. VIP kills now count for more.
  • No double reports of player joining/leaving if s/he is a clanmate and also on the friendlist.
  • Lochnagar changes: guns that drop to 1 ammo now do not completely destroy the gun, reverting to more familiar mechanics. However, for clip sizes greater than 1 the same proportional damage per shot still applies. The philosophy remains “repair while shooting” vs. “shoot now, rebuild later”.
  • Lowered intensity of gun effects, projectile trails and flare effects on dark maps.
  • Added notification for the store if steam overlay not enabled.
  • Increased Default Joystick Deadzone for better compatibility.
  • Changed perma-healthbar to 10 tick.

  • Engine damage sounds were missing.
  • Reimplemented animations on the Mobula.
  • Fixed fog becoming bright when in both tar smoke and other clouds
  • Colliders on the Squid ship have been changed to prevent snapping, warping, and falling through the floor in some places.
  • Removed highlighting on targets that are in-range when the Tutorial Text option is on.
  • Cooldown ticking sound getting stuck
  • Fixed various unnecessary differences between shader quality settings
  • Fixed rendered fog distance to be more consistent with culling distance on low-visibility maps (e.g. Anglean Raiders), to prevent ships from vanishing while not yet in fog.
  • Fixed several cases of character “rubber banding” when just barely bumping pieces of ship geometry
  • Fixed different shades of fins on different shader quality
  • Fixed voice chat icons/text being under the gradient background of the map
  • Fixed typos in pilot tutorial
  • Fixed workshop decal icons having different background color
