Update #62 - 8/7/2018

Posted on August 7th, 2018 11:37 AM EST
Vomit/Barf/Overconsumption
  • When a player overconsumes food/drink it can cause involuntarily loss of stomach contents. (40% of food/drink lost)
  • Vomiting can also be caused in a less potent way by sickness, poison, dizziness or radiation sickness - in this case only a fourth of the food/drink is lost
  • After vomiting the player feels slightly better if he was dizzy before

Humidity/Visible Warm Breath
  • If the combination of the difference of air to exhaled air temperature and air humidity is high enough then the players breath becomes visible
  • The breath frequency is based on the stamina strain on the character and works in combination with the hold breath actions
  • The breath visibility duration depends on the how fast the exhaled humidity can be absorbed in the air

Wetness
  • A player gets wet by going underwater, being in the rain or high humidity
  • When a player gets wet enough water begins dripping to the ground for a certain period until the player is dry enough again
  • Wet players have a medium protection against heat and fire, but are more susceptible to cold

Vehicle Skins
  • Support for skinning/painting vehicles has been added to the game
  • As you drive the pickup truck, base sedan, or semi there is a random chance you will be awarded a new skin for the vehicle you are driving
  • Skins for additional vehicles will be added in future updates
  • All the current skins are just solid color variants
  • Vehicle skins can be sold and traded via Steam inventory
  • A new vehicle paint shop has been added to the map - vehicles must be taken there to be skinned
  • A vehicle kiosk is located in the building that will show you all the vehicle skins you have
    It costs amcoins to paint/skin a vehicle - the cost of skins will eventually vary based on the skin
  • Skins on a vehicle will persist through server restarts

Repair Kits
  • Repair kits have been added to the game and will allow you to now repair most weapons
  • The health of the repair kits determines how much it will repair a weapon - a 15% health kit will repair its corresponding weapon by 15%
  • You can combine health kits together - a 15% and a 30% will become a 45% kit - anything over 100 will be lost
  • A weapon can be broken down into a repair kit for that weapon - the health of the weapon determines the health of the resulting repair kit
  • You repair a weapon, or combine repair kits, by dragging and dropping them in the UI - the background of an applicable item will turn blue

Item Damage/Degradation
  • All weapons now spawn with a random amount of health
  • They will need to be repaired to 100% in order to be stored in a kiosk
    In this update the health of an item does NOT affect its performance, but it will in the next update
  • When a player takes damage any clothing that has a health value in the area that was hit will be damaged
  • For example, a player gets shot in the chest and it's possible both the jacket and shirt will be damaged
  • Only a small amount of clothing has a health value and can currently be damaged, but all clothing will have a health value in the next update

Server Fixes
  • Fixes for water spawning issue
  • Fixes for some stuck server issues
  • Fixes for kicking players when moving fast - driving vehicles

  • Weather stats slightly tweaked in regard to humidity and breath visibility
  • Burning barrel now provides warmth and lower humidity, as well as new fire damage setup
  • Gamma curve limit added
  • Server message sent to all clients when an admin manually starts a weather pattern
  • Current weather pattern is now output as part of the server status command
  • Slight network optimization by excluding certain objects server-side
  • Slight network optimization in the initialization of storage, dryfire, ladder
  • Slight server performance optimization by excluding weather audio, visuals and client only objects on servers
  • When using the context menu to craft an item the resulting item will be dropped on the ground if you don't have room in your inventory
  • Resulting crafted items that drop to the ground now have their orientation randomized to help eliminate perfectly stacking objects on the ground
  • Items restored from a kiosk will always have the correct stack size and health
  • Inventory opens faster the very first time you open it
  • Fixed "Unknown" player bug in area chat

Vehicles
  • Drivable semi truck added
