Note: This patch does not contain all of the intended features, which will be added iteratively to the notes as they become available. Additionally, some features may be implemented in a partial state and as such are not ready for testing. When those features reach a playable state they will be detailed on the notes and added to the “Testing Focus”. Please issue council all issues related to those in testing focus and in general gameplay.

Testing Focus

  • This build has quite a few bits of extra logging for crashes and player network syncing to track down any other issues with the on foot client networking update. If possible, please submit any of the crash handlers you get!
  • This build also has underlying physics changes to help with hit registration during ship combat. This is highly experimental, and we’re looking for all the feedback we can get on this change.
