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

In this build we have reverted a few of the streaming and actor networking changes as a test to track down issues so character streaming may behave differently in this build.

Jumptown should be running for around 4 hours tonight on the PTU servers starting at 1600 CDT | 2100 UTC

  • Locations – ArcCorp – Area18 – Hospital – Empire Health Services hospital has no gravity and may cause infinite black screen on loading into hospital bed

Please note that we suggest making sure you avoid loading into the Area18 hospital for this issue by setting your respawn to a different location. if you happen to get this black screen, reloading into the server should respawn you in the hab bed as a workaround.
