Update 1.4.25

19.10.2020

 

Over the last week or so we’ve invested a lot of effort into balance and simspeed improvements.
This update brings improvement to various blocks and tries to cover a lot of scenarios of player actions that cause simspeed drops.

Biggest change in this patch is the complete NPC’s overhaul.
We’ve made a lot of new designs that new players as well as old ones will have fun with. We’ve also adjusted their strengths so that they can be more in line with tier progression of Omega.

We have also made changes to tool blocks to counter simspeed drops.
Welders and grinders now work faster depending on the tier.
Drills have reduced mining radius and the giant drill has been disabled.
We know all of you love the giant drill, but Keen doesn’t give us any other option here at the moment.

To battle collision problems we’ve edited all blocks to be more simspeed friendly when colliding with voxel or other grids.

In terms of PVP we’ve made some improvements that should remove unknown behavior of weapons and make battles more fluid with less desync.

Keep in mind we will continue to monitor how these changes impact balance and simspeed and will adjust them accordingly. If you encounter any new bugs or exploits from this patch, please post it on the forum https://forum.rebels-games.com
