Miscreated Patch 36 https://miscreated-servers.com/blog/20/miscreated-patch-36/ https://miscreated-servers.com/blog/20/miscreated-patch-36/ Fri, 01 Jul 2016 00:13 CEST
Relevance System Overview:
The relevance system is a fundamental change to several of the core systems of CryEngine. It alters how all entities (players, AI, vehicles, items, etc.) are updated on the server and synchronized with all the clients. 

The new system greatly reduces the bandwidth requirements of the server and clients - the server sends a lot less data and clients receive a lot less data. Due to the reduced bandwidth requirements of the server it also reduces the CPU usage, so that we can use the savings for new features. It also reduces the time you spend on the "Synchronizing world state" phase when joining a server. 

Reloading Weapons:
  • You can now press R to reload your weapon 
  • Reload animations and sounds now work 
  • The first applicable magazine/ammo pile NOT in your backpack will be used

Incapacitation System:
  • You can now bind other players using Duct Tape (equip the duct tape in a secondary weapon slot) 
  • A player can be captured when you are behind them and they are not moving or if they have their hands up 
  • If bound you can use the lean keys for 4-5 minutes to eventually break free

  • Captured players can be passengers in cars and still consume items in the world 
  • Captured players cannot access their inventory or pick up items

  • Tents will appear in the world already set up (much like how vehicles just appear) 
  • Tents do not have an owner - anyone that finds a tent can empty it, pack it up and move it
  • Tents can take damage and be destroyed - and items will be destroyed in them as well 
  • Tents can be pitched anywhere in the world (except on another person's plot) - you do not need a plot sign to pitch a tent 
  • Tents have to be pitched on terrain only - they cannot be on top of rocks or other structures/base parts 
  • To pack up a tent you have to empty any contents inside of it first 
  • There is a limited amount of tents that spawn in the entire world, and a limited amount that can be placed at once 
  • Tents will despawn if nobody uses them after several days

Miscreated Patch 32 https://miscreated-servers.com/blog/16/miscreated-patch-32/ https://miscreated-servers.com/blog/16/miscreated-patch-32/ Sat, 06 Feb 2016 00:01 CET


Release Version
Starting in this patch we are now distributing a real "Release" build of CryEngine instead of the previous "Profile" build. 

A Release version is faster than the prior Profile builds. 

To distribute a Release version required us to move and pack up the game data in very specific ways, so many of the files had to be altered again, but it's worth it for the added performance benefits. 

A Release version also uses some signed and encrypted data files to better prevent anyone from tampering with them. It also whitelists all config file commands to prevent anyone from abusing those. In other words, a Release build locks everything down even better than it was before from an anti-cheat perspective. 

AI System
The AI company has been working on integrating their technology into our game. We'll release more information about it once it's fully integrated and working. 

Item Storage/Network Relevance System
Work is still progressing on the new item and network relevance systems. We plan to push out an initial version to the experimental server soon to begin testing with. Follow our Twitter account, @miscreatedgame, for the latest updates. 

Large City
The new, large city in the North that is being developed is looking amazing! We think everyone will be quite surprised when it's ready for release.

Damage System


This update contains a new experimental damage system for all projectiles (bullets). 
The damage is now, essentially, based on the kinetic energy of the projectile at time of impact. 
In prior releases the damage falloff could have been far too much at middle and long ranges for some weapons. 
This new system should make the damage a lot more consistent and predictable when you are shooting at someone. 
As a reminder, damage multipliers still apply on players and AI based on where you hit them at - aim for the head. 

Game

• Item spawns/despawns have been slowed down to reduce server and network load 
• All ranged weapons should spawn in oriented correctly again and be easier to pick up as a result

Miscreated Patch 27 https://miscreated-servers.com/blog/12/miscreated-patch-27/ https://miscreated-servers.com/blog/12/miscreated-patch-27/ Thu, 29 Oct 2015 17:53 CET
Raise/Lower Weapon System
In this patch is a new weapon lowering/raising combat mechanic. 
By default you can use the "Tab" key to switch between the two (can be rebound to a key of your choosing). 
With your weapon raised, you will run slower in the game, so lower it when you are not in a combat situation. 
At any time you can sprint (from lowered or raised weapon postion) to sprint at full speed, but need to leave sprint to attack or fire. 

Pre-compiled Shader Cache
This patch contains the first iteration of distributing our own pre-compiled shader cache with the game to help reduce stalls while playing. 
We will continue to improve the cache each update. 

Server Rental
  • Fixed spelling of "http_password" in the hosting config file, so you can change it for your server 
  • All rented servers running in whitelisted mode will have the phrase " - Whitelisted Only" appended to their server name 
  • First-person only mode should work correctly 
  • wm_TimeScale will now work correctly in the hosting.cfg file 
  • Removed support for idle time related variables, temporarily 
  • Fixed issue with some rcon services not starting, so people renting servers couldn't issue commands

Game
  • White flickering when joining another game is fixed 
  • Game will no longer start in fullscreen mode to workaround the mouse scaling issue. You can use Alt+Enter to switch after starting the game if you want to run in fullscreen 
  • Smoothed out player and AI movement - less jittering now 
  • Increased available network IDs, so busy servers should run longer

Server Rentals

You can now rent your own game server from TrinityGames! 
Servers are available in different slot counts (maximum number of players) and in many regions of the world. 
They will be offering a reduced rate for the first people wanting their own server. 

When you rent your own server, you will currently be able to control the following: 
  • First-person only mode - no third-person views will be allowed - default is first and third-person views 
  • Customize your server's name - must still be within naming guidelines 
  • Whitelist only server - you can control a list of who can join your server 
  • Control the time-of-day acceleration rate - from 24-hours for a full day/night cycle up to 4 hours for full cycle 
  • Lock the time - instead of using a day/night cycle you can force an exact time always for your server 
  • Ping limits - can specify a maximum ping limit for players to join your server 
  • Idle kick timer - can control how long a connection can be idle before a player is removed 
  • Banning players - you can ban players from your server - within guidelines 
  • Server messages - can send messages to all players that will appear at the top of their screen

Miscreated Patch 23 - Base Building And Clans https://miscreated-servers.com/blog/8/miscreated-patch-23-base-building-and-clans/ https://miscreated-servers.com/blog/8/miscreated-patch-23-base-building-and-clans/ Tue, 28 Jul 2015 01:08 CEST
For this patch we are very pleased to introduce both our basebuilding and clan systems! This is the first implementation of each system, and we plan to still add even more features to them in the coming months. We are very interested in hearing you feedback on them, so be sure to let us know your thoughts on any of the social media sites. 


Basebuilding
Core basebuilding features: 
  • Completely freeform basebuilding system - the Miscreated basebuilding system is different from all of the other existing survival games available and it gives you total control to make as complex and pretty of a base as you want. This is not the typical, snap-together Lego style system other games have. 
  • Over 100 different parts are currently available for your base, with more coming soon. 
  • Several different categories (with many subcategories and types) of parts available - wood, sand, tires, powered. Metal to be added in a future patch. 
  • Anyone can interact with your base - repair parts, turn lights on/off, open/close unlocked doors, turn generators on/off. Non-clan members cannot alter the structure of your base - add/remove parts, attach/detach parts to power. 
  • Find crafting guides to learn more advanced basebuilding recipes. You can also find someone that knows a part's recipe you don't and politely ask them to make the part for you. 
  • Join a clan to have fellow clan members help you build your base. 
  • Basebuilding restrictions - bases cannot be placed in towns or some other key areas to prevent griefing in those areas. Other players also cannot build bases very close to your base. 
  • Pack up and move undamaged parts - if damaged, you can repair them first, or you can dismantle damaged parts to get one of the crafting materials back. 
  • Damaged states for parts - at each 25% damage the color of a damaged part will darken more.

Official Miscreated basebuilding guide. We highly recommend you read it: http://miscreatedgame.com/files/basebuilding/MiscreatedBasebuildingGuide.pdf 

Clans
Core clan features: 
  • Clans are persistent (remembered between server restarts and logging in/out) and per server. 
  • Clans can be created, disbanded, and you can invite other players to your clan by targeting them and using the mouse wheel option. 
  • Invited players can decline an invite or accept it. 
  • Clan owner can promote other clan members to be a clan captain, so they can invite new, or remove existing, clan members. 
  • For this release, all clan members can alter the structure of any clan owned bases. In a future release there will be more specific permission controls added.

Game
  • Increased character's weight limit to 40kg 
  • Removed the medium and heavy fog pattern because of the fog flickering they caused 
  • Fixed some issues with the cursor showing up and not going away 
  • You can now change the shoulder the camera is over (default 'B' key) 
  • Added hiding of third person character parts if they block the view when the camera is too close to the character 
  • When freelooking in first person view the camera movement simulates the neck bending 
  • Made it easier to use ladders 
  • You will only see the "another player is too close" message if you have another player, vehicle, or item targeted 
  • Fixed issue with your location not being restored after logging in 
  • SFP mode (simulated first person) has been removed by default until ready to be released

UI
  • Added patch notes to the main menu - click on the Patch Notes text to view them 
  • Added game related hints to the loading screen 
  • Removed Hide inventory keybind (inventory and chat gets closed now by pressing the same key to open it or by opening the main menu) 
  • Changed the main menu background to all black for now so you can read patch notes better - we'll improve it again in the future

World
  • Added flag poles to the military base 
  • Opened a small area north of Brightmoor 
  • Added a couple of underground bunkers around the map (happy exploring, and more will be added in future updates)

Miscreated Patch 22 https://miscreated-servers.com/blog/7/miscreated-patch-22/ https://miscreated-servers.com/blog/7/miscreated-patch-22/ Tue, 30 Jun 2015 14:49 CEST
For this update we had to wipe all of the characters and items in the game. We really try to minimize how often we have to do it (this is only the second time in 6 months), but at times it is necessary. 

Experimental Features 

Basebuilding 
The basebuiding feature is currently undergoing rapid improvements and changes. It is still not ready for general release, but we will have a whitelisted server where some people will be testing the system and they are welcome to stream while they are playing and building bases. We hope to release it to everyone in the following update. 

Keybinds 
Keybinds are now accessible in the main menu of the game. This is our first implementation of them, so we'll be fixing any issues and improving the feature as needed. 

Ladders 
Ladders have been added to several buildings and structures in the game. They are not working perfectly yet, but are good enough for an initial release. It can be difficult to still use them from the top of a ladder to get back down. Try pressing "F" (use key) at the top of ladders even if you don't see a prompt at times - may have to crouch and wiggle around a bit as well. We will continue to fix them. 


Game
  • All characters are now locked to each server. This means each server you play on saves your character independently. You can still switch servers at any time, but your items and character position will no longer be carried across every server. 
  • There is now a 30 second wait timer before you can leave a server, a countdown is displayed next to the button. 
  • Optimized more network messages to reduce bandwidth

  • New shop signs and motels sign added 
  • Made it easier to use the roof bridge between the large office buildings 
  • Fixed spawners for items that you couldn't get 
  • Fixed issue with being able to walk through one of the walls in the office building

Items
  • Added Pickaxe item 
  • Altered spawn rates for all melee weapons 
  • Added protection levels for shoes - can view it in the item's tooltip 
  • Healing mushroom can now be eaten 
  • Antibiotics added to spawn tables, can be used. 
  • Increased hip fire accuracy for the Carlington, adjusted particle effects and shell ejection 
  • Added double-tap ability to toggle sprinting 
  • Melee weapons now play correct particle effects when being used 
  • Crafting guides added to the world to find, these will unlock unique recipes when used. Once learned you will always have it, even if you die.

Crafting
  • Altered items that harvest materials. Hatchet is for wood, Hammer is metal, Pickaxe is rock. 
  • New recipe system added to the game - old crafting UI has been removed 
  • Find crafting guides and use them to learn more recipes. Recipes persist through death. 
  • You can now right click and turn unused clothing into rags. Note: Only some clothing can be changed into rags.

Vehicles
  • Fixed exit location on Tractor 
  • Added damage behavior for the fishing boat, so it can be damaged properly now 
  • Added basic damaged model for the fishing boat 
  • Adjusted handling on several vehicles 
  • Adjusted particle effects on several vehicles

UI

If you see a "V" under the action menu that means you can use the mouse wheel to scroll down to see more options you can click on. Right-click to cancel. 

  • Made action menu easier to read text 
  • Keybinds UI added - if you made an old custom keybind xml file, delete it. 
  • Pressing ESC with the inventory open will now close it.

AI
  • Added new "Crazy" mutant

Sounds
  • 1p shotgun sounds will now not play duplicate sound effects 
  • Adjusted some melee weapons to use correct "fire" sounds instead of select sounds

Animations
