GamePlay

  • Zipline improvements
    • Added the ability to change direction via player movement input button. Just move in the direction you'd like to go while riding a zipline, no jumping required.
    • Rather than moving at max speed as soon as entering the zipline, a player will now accelerate over time to reach that max speed.
    • Destruction effects have been turned back on while riding a zip line.
      • Players will destroy thee nearby player buildings before attaching to the zip line so their path becomes clear.

  • To help with situations where walls are built mostly underground, Epic Games have added functionality where an extra piece will be built for free on top of that piece.
    • This occurs when the wall piece is showing less than 30% above ground.

    • Building sensitivity change also applies to edit mode.
  • Editing will no longer interrupt gunfire and pickaxe swings.
  • Corn stalks will no longer block gunfire.
  • Editing a structure will now begin without waiting for a response from the server. This should cut down on ghost before editing and make it a smoother experience.

  • Vehicle impact damage to a player will now respect shields instead of directly applying to player health.

  • Infinite dab is even more infinite...Dab for 11 hours instead of 10 hours in the lobby.
  • Adjusted map art to more accurately represent player & marker positions.
  • Textures of props used in emotes are now pre-streamed so scorecard and other emotes that use props will have less chance of using a low-resolution texture.
