Happy New Year, Super Animals! The team is back from the holidays and hard at work on the next big update for February, but we wanted to give you a little something fun to tide you over until then.
We hope you've all had a good start to your year and we can't wait to share more with you about what we have in the works for SAR! In the meantime, let's head over to the Research Lab where your favorite Lab Lab, Dr. Jennifer Dogna, has a new Super Animal to reveal...
Super Seal Joins the Fight
Super Seals and 3 additional breeds are now available to create at level 50 in the Research Lab:
- Super Seal
- Super Seal Pup
- Super Sealion
- Super Walrus
We're also making some improvements to the process of discovering new Super Animals:
- Once you reach the required level to unlock new Super Animals, you'll be guaranteed to get an undiscovered animal's DNA as your next DNA drop (previously it was 25% chance to get the new animal DNA).
- Note: DNA magnets still take precedence over undiscovered DNA until they're used up, but once your magnet's effect wears off, the undiscovered DNA will be guaranteed to drop at that point.
- The Research Lab will also now display an exclamation mark when you get new animal DNA for the first time.
- Magnum and Deagle now have 3 shots under fixed recoil pattern (previously was 2 before going into random recoil).
- Slipping on a banana will slide the player back to the actual server-side slip location, which fixes a hit registration issue.
- Floss and wave emotes have been revamped to fix some occasional glitches that they tended to introduce alongside new animals/cosmetics.
- Since the high ping mode threshold is at 250ms for now, we've added back the old high ping check on bullet hits (if a player is above 150 ping, the server will check if the person they shot is behind a wall currently, and if so then apply 50% damage reduction).
- Fixed compression artifacts on the Stacked Hats.
We’ve also decided to extend the codes BIRTHDAY2020, CRISPRMAS, and NEWYEAR until this Sunday, January 17th to make sure you all have one last chance to get your paws on the cosmetics before they go away! See you all on the island, Super Animals.
