Updates and hot fixes thread
We will update the game pretty frequently, many times daily, to fix bugs and improve the game.

We released at version 0.1.0 with the following hotfix:

Hotfix: Dogs not being able to get into the Animal catcher shack. Some level designer ♥♥♥♥ed up at the last minute :HEALTHFUL:

We'll post further updates here with their changelogs.

Running With Scissors  [developer] Oct 19, 2019 @ 2:51pm 
Steam build Number: 0.1.3.2

Added
  • the ability to go into Third person with the ‘N’ Key. This feature is experimental and won’t be fully supported for a while, but it works well enough for you to have some fun with.

Steam build Number: 0.1.3.3

Added
  • key rebinding first pass, it’s now possible to rebind your controls from the options menu.

Steam build Number: 0.1.3.4

    -Dude’s movement speed increased
    -Kicking NPC’s will knock them over
    -More buffs will be added in the future

  • Hud customization! For now just the one option, and that’s the ‘Classic’ P2 hud, you can find it in the options under gameplay.
    Cosmetic skins for some of the weapons, go check them out, selectable from within the phone menu! Sadly, we forgot to implement a microtransaction system, so guess you get them for free…
  • Ambient sounds to the outdoor areas, and prison
  • Toilet to the Antiques store! You’re welcome!

Changed/Improved
  • The ladder sounds
  • Prison security code screens

Steam build Number: 0.1.3.5.1

===Added===

- Saves! Yup, that fundamental feature that you’ve all been waiting an entire month for! Saves are not yet in their final form, but they are good enough to now showcase and make use of. As of now they allow you to:
  • Save anywhere when not inside a mission area (Prison/Sewers) and it’ll remember your position, completed errands and current inventory
  • Load from your last save at any point in game
  • Resume from your last save/checkpoint from the main menu

There are a few features still missing and will be addressed in a future update:
  • It’s not possible to save your location and position from within some errand maps such as the Prison/Sewers. Although if you die in Sewer or Prison, you'll still be able to respawn from the last checkpoint you hit
  • There are no save slots yet, only your previous save/checkpoint is remembered
  • It takes longer to load from a save than we’d like, but this will improve as we work on the streaming system
- A couple cheats to allow you to warp around the world a bit easier, mostly for our internal testing but you guys might find them helpful. Press ‘T’ to bring up the talk bar and type the following to wrap yourself to a location:
  • /TurtlePower (Teleport to the Sewers)
  • /DoNotPassGo (Teleport to the Prison)
  • /INeedAJob (Teleport to the Job Agency)
  • /SPCA (Teleport to the Animal Catcher area)
  • /OneStarMotel (Teleport to the Ending Motel building)

Few notes:

- Note that these do not automatically complete any errands, it’s just a way to quickly travel between areas
- We will be adding the ability to manually save from inside the Sewer and Prison in a future patch!


===Changed/Improved===

- We’ve tightened up our Anu’s ready for you to go deep into and explore! The Anu’s inn building was previously a thrown together placeholder building that was inaccessible and had a ridiculously high in poly count for what it was. It’s now far better looking, all rooms are open to explore, and it’s less likely to contribute to melting your PC components
- Various updates and improvements to level design in some areas, and minor performance updates
- Ambient sounds in some areas across the game, most notably the Laundromat
- Replaced placeholder Ammo textures

===Fixed===

- Some weapons not correctly reflecting light, so they no longer appear black in some areas

Steam build Number: 0.1.3.5.2

===Fixed===

- Optimized LOD's on foliage
marciN  [developer] Nov 21, 2019 @ 2:37pm 
Steam build Number: 0.1.3.5.3

===Added===

- Save slots! You guys will no longer be limited to a single "save slot". With this new system, you can use as many save slots as you like (Unless you are brave enough to make a thousand slots in which case the game will probably crash... But who cares, go crazy! The game is your oyster)
- [W.I.P]
Dude-Eye Targeting for the Revolver! Still missing HUD art, and it might cause a crash or two in some situations, but we put it in so you guys can start playing around with it :)

What is Dude-Eye Targeting?

Killing enemies with the Revolver fills up an execution meter (Currently only a placeholder text) and allowing use of the alternate fire. When 'Right Mouse Button' is held, you can pass the targeting reticle over any human enemies in the immediate area to mark them. When released, the Postal Dude will automatically shoot for their heads, killing them instantly.

You might be familiar with it if you've played Paradise Lost, the general idea is pretty much the same in POSTAL 4 but we made some much needed improvements (Although not all of them made it into this patch). For example, the targets are now sorted even after you've marked them in a weird order. That and combined with the fact that your entire view no longer turns helps add to the weapon's look and feel or clean and efficient aim.

You will probably notice some bugs which we are already fixing as we speak, we will also be implementing proper art, and adding in some cool animations.

- Crosshair when wielding Melee weapons

- ‘Quit to Desktop’ button in Game Menu

===Changed/Improved===

- Polished up Weapon screen UI (Changed/Resized font to keep the design more consistent across the board, fixed text cutting off)
- Replaced various placeholder UI icons
- Increased Boomerang Machete speed
- Replaced Vomit ammo type with Urine (Spurt'n'Squirt 9000)
- Decreased thrown trail opacity (Grenade/Molotov)
- Implemented keypad button press artwork
- NPCs will now start with full magazines

===Fixed===

- Molotov fire not having any sound
- Optimized collision on more models
- Not being able to explode Sewer Dwellers’ heads
- Head gibs floating in mid-air, often seen in the Prison
- Water Effects appearing when getting off the Scooter
- Being unable to respawn when dead whilst on the Scooter
- Shovel freaking out bystanders
- Inconsistent HUD/Phone health and armor display
- Control menu locking out the rest of the settings
- Champ not “pointing out” key items in starting area
- Fluids causing door sounds to play continuously

'LIMBERLOSS' Update

Important Note: Some of you guys might crash when you launch POSTAL 4 after this update. In order to fix this properly on our end, we need to wait for the next update patch for Unreal Engine 4.23 which should hopefully be coming out soon. Thankfully, there is a very easy workaround for this:

1. Right click on POSTAL 4: No Regerts in your Steam Library, and go to 'Properties'
2. In the 'General' tab you'll see a 'Set Launch Options...' button, click on it3. A new window will pop up, enter the following command into the text field: -windowed and hit 'Okay'[i.gyazo.com]
4. Once you've done that, launch POSTAL 4 and it should boot up without any issues

===Added===

- Settings app / Radio System! We added a new radio station which can be played directly from the new 'Settings' app.

We will be expanding it as the development goes on; more songs, DJ banter, Phone Ins, News Commercials etc.

Currently, the Settings app will allow you to do the following:

- Access the 'Game Menu'
- Enable/Disable Edensin Radio
- Switch between HUDs (We should have a new one coming out very soon!)

- [W.I.P] Limb Weapons You asked for it and we delivered! Simply walk up to a severed limb of your liking...or a head and pick it up with 'E'.

It's worth noting that this system is not finished, we plan on making a few improvements to it in the coming weeks, such as (but not limited to):

- New, better sound effects
- Improved textures on severed limbs (This includes blood you see on dismembered parts)

Later down the line, we are also going to allow you to throw them at people and maybe even bowl the heads! Basically, you'll have other ways to abuse people with them :D

- New Dude-Eye HUD textures and Revolver fanning animations

- Mobility Scooter sound effects

- Implemented Engine Start/Stop, Pawn Hit, and Horn sounds
- Implemented new electric Scooter motor sound
- Implemented reverse sounds

Tire tracks as well as the scooter impact effects and sounds will be a part of the next patch

- Audio Sliders!

You will now be able to adjust individual sound groups via their respective audio sliders. We also implemented some 'preview' sound effects that will play when you start modifying the sliders for convenience.

Note: VOIP slider and 'Display Subtitles' tickbox don't serve any purpose right now.

- More ambient sounds

===Changed/Improved===

- Improved sidewalks (They are now smoother and blend better with the environment)
- Improved the look of Cliffs

Next update will see significant improvements in this area, stay tuned!

- Improved area around the road that leads to the Job Agency, and made small improvements to the area surrounding Anu’s Inn
- Improved areas around the Fire Station, MikeJ’s Bidet Store, Arcade and Clock Tower
- Started improving Police Station interior
- Increased the size of the revolver
- Changed font style/color on Classic P2 HUD
- Replaced various placeholder textures
- You will now be able to properly enter keypad codes with Menu Buttons (Keyboard/Gamepad)
- Dude-Eye: Implemented a target lost range. Basically if a marked target runs or you move too far out of range, then the target will be removed
- Updated "Close Phone" text

===Fixed===

- Crash related to Dude-Eye meter
- Shadow smoothing on Beggar Sign
- Various mapping bugs that were reported on our Steam Forums
- Fixed keypad softlocking the game
- Dying in Penitentiary resulting in getting respawned in the wrong location and therefore breaking the errand
- Being able to mark animals and birds as Dude Eye targets. Currently they don't have proper heads or bones so that would've thrown the Revolver for a loop. You can still kill them for points though

'Holy ♥♥♥♥, it’s been a month since the last update' Update

WARNING: This Update includes A Lot of new cool stuff but it does not include any significant performance updates. In fact, in some areas it’s probably worse than the last build in terms of FPS (although there should be fewer instances of hitching). We focused on new content at the expense of performance. Now it is VERY IMPORTANT that we get this sorted out ASAP! Henceforth, we will be focusing our ENTIRE TEAM on optimization for as long as it takes to improve the janky ass framerate and remove all the major hitching present in the build.

Typically we’d have done this later in development but early access changed that. We want everyone to have a smooth experience. We will get this janky game running smoothly before pushing forward with adding more significant new features. Thanks for your understanding and support!

Happy Valentines
❤️

===Added===

- Two new side-errands!

Volunteer Firefighter:

On Monday, after the Dude receives his tasks from the job agency, he receives a Mayoral Alert on his phone. It turns out the town’s fire station is on fire! With no fireman having stepped foot into Edensin in the last 40 years, a call for volunteer firemen (or firewomen) has been put out to the public. It’s none of the Dude’s business, but hey, there’s a small paying bonus if you do it!

Art Dealer:

On any day of the week, the Dude may enter the local art gallery which he initially discovers is completely devoid of any artwork on display. However, the proprietor beckons the Dude to accept a job for her. The dealer asks if he’ll go around town finding any special purple-framed paintings, part of the so-called “Royale Collection” that she’s after, and deliver them to her to put on the exhibition. Each delivered painting will yield a cash reward, and even dupes will pay out a smaller reward. Upon delivering a full set, the Dude will get a large bonus as well. Better get exploring if you want that fat cash reward!

We were planning on putting out three side-errands, but unfortunately one of them wasn’t quite ready to go. It should be going out soon though, stay tuned!

'Smack My Hitch Up!' Update

You wanted performance improvements? You have them! As promised, we put pretty much the entire team onto the task of optimization for a few weeks. This process is still ongoing, and future updates will improve things further, but for now, you should have a much more enjoyable experience with this update in the way of higher framerates and far less hitching.

Many new features and improvements, too!

Note: Older saves will not work with this new update. They will be marked as red and should be deleted. Future updates should not break older saves - this is a one off thing.

===Added===

- Bystander Deathcrawling: There are currently two ways they can get to it: by being lit on fire and left to burn out or by begging for their life and still being attacked
- Deathcrawl-after-ragdoll: if a pawn is 20% health or less, or they were kicked with Vitamin X, they'll go into deathcrawl when they recover from being ragdolled
- Stumble animation, when a pawn runs for a certain distance they will stumble and stop to catch their breath
- Machete charging sound
- New faces on more Male pawns
- Third-person animations for GasCan, Urethra, Pigeon Mine, Grenade and Beggar Sign (also TP fixes - see fixed section for more details)
Proper controller support: Map screen navigation with gamepad analog, navigation for inventory tab of phone, tab switching on map screen and more!
- New loading screen transition after Dude gets arrested
- Load zones! Due to absolutely no demand, a feature form POSTAL 2 has made a return! They are far quicker with fewer of them compared to P2 though, so they probably need a rebranding… lets call them ‘ZAP ZONES’*

*ZAP ZONES are hopefully only a temporary solution to the level hitching issues in POSTAL 4 and we aim to reintroduce full level steaming in the future when we’re doing our final optimizations. We’re pretty sure you’ll agree the trade off is worth the results in the here and now.

===Changed/Improved===

- Optimization improvements. We still have some way to go but you should see some notable improvements to the frame rate in some of the worst areas, and the hitching/stuttering that randomly happened has been mostly eliminated
- Scooter’s hill climbing capabilities and handling
- Improved sidewalk transition near the Job Agency
- Audio quality of radio songs

- Weapon wheel can now switch weapons and ammo types simultaneously
- Replaced certain foliage meshes with better looking/optimized versions
- Reduced the self hit pitch for all of our fluid weapons, meaning it’s never been easier to piss yourself out when on fire!
- Adjusted window opacity settings

===Fixed===

- Broken 'Post Process' and 'AA' method scrollboxes
- Broken motion blur setting
- Cat petting state transition not factoring the slowdown from Catnip
