Remember when we said v3.0.8
would be the last? Yeah, we lied. Sorry! We've updated ZPS to version v3.0.9!
This is an important update because it features changes to the rounds manager where late joiners won't be able to play as a Survivor every time, a penalty for players who choose to 'zombie skip' during the round, small changes to ZP Options, tweaks to pistol fire rate and more.
We also have slightly
increased movement speed for regular zombies! Check the list below for full details:
- Added a "Game Manual" button that opens the Steam overlay to our official ZPS manual. (Special Thanks to: Orphanage and the dev team)
- Updated English and French translations.
- Angelscript - Added "CHL2MP_Player.OpenSteamOverlayToWebPage( const string& in szURL )" function (clients can deny it's execution, see below).
- Round Manager - Fixed an exploit where players could bypass starting zombie selection and late joining.
- Round Manager - Late joining as a survivor is now limited at "once per map" to prevent abuse.
- Round Manager - Players that try to bypass the new late joining limitation are punished by being forced to play as a zombie.
- Round Manager - Players that try to zombie skip are punished by being forced to play as a zombie.
- Round Manager - Starting zombies that tries to zombie skip are forced back in the zombie team as punishment.
- Server configuration - Added "sv_allow_wait_command 0" to the default server configuration in an attempt to block fast pistol firing scripts.
- ZP Options - Added a tab for custom content settings.
- ZP Options - Clients can control if servers can open their Steam overlay to web pages (see Angelscript function above).
- ZP Options - Move "Disable player sprays" option from the misc tab to the custom content one.
- Added animations to the zombie lives counter for consistency with the rest of the HUD.
- Added a warning threshold to zombie lives counter (will flash red if zombies are almost out of lives).
- Health is no longer considered critical below 20 (HL2's value), it is now considered critical below 35 if you are a survivor and 80 as a zombie.
- Fixed basement trap's door elevator.
- Fixed Zombie ladder at the light booth.
- Fixed golf club dealing more damage on the stomach/chest rather than the head.
- Decreased pistols firing rate, the time between 2 shots has been changed from 0,11 seconds to 0,13 seconds.
- Increased movement speed for regular zombies 140 to 145.
Server owners are required to update their server as soon as possible - also be sure to backup your server.cfg file. Steam will automatically update your client shortly.
