Vivox Proximity voice chat


We added Vivox proximity voice chat to the game. Now you can talk with your fellow citizens about the latest news, in town debates or just barter with them directly. The chat is based on proximity, so you’ll only hear people that are near to you. Of course, you can also disable the voice chat completely or mute specific players. With that, we also introduced a new face animation for people talking.

Reworked controls for vehicles

On popular request we have improved and redesigned the controls for the excavators and skid steers and made sure they are explained understandably. The excavator got a new UI toolbar, you can look around freely in both skidsteer and excavator now, the skidsteer tool is now activated by default when you mount it and we changed how the general controls work. They also should work much better than before for mining purposes, though they still need some further polish.

Performance

Being well aware of the performance problems we have done a lot of work to improve the matter. Starting with this update you should see highly increased performance in chunkloading, especially for faster computers, so driving with a truck should no longer make you fall through the world. We also fixed several potential causes for memory leaks and performance should no longer degrade as much over time as it did in the prior version. We also improved performance when loading the minimap, claiming land and closing the map while it is still loading. We still have quite a way to go, which we’ll do in the next update 8.3 and all the updates thereafter.
