After several months of BETA testing and many changes in response to great community feedback, today sees the release of Game Version 3658. This patch includes a bunch of bugfixes and feature additions, but the main event is definitely the suite of balance changes.
Don’t be fooled by the 3655 label, the number system has got a bit confused in recent weeks. Here is a link to Zock’s changelog for the balance portion of this patch. It not only details the changes, but also the reasoning behind each one.
For those of you who also want to see what’s been going on with the bugfix side, here’s a link to the full changelog:
The main highlights include:
• Added game side of a new rehost function to rehost a new game with the same settings. This will work in Downlord’s client shortly, and is coming to the main client in the near future
• Allowed players to be swapped in the lobby by using the map preview icons
• Stop torpedoes colliding with missiles, such as in nuke subs
• Overhaul of bomb drop code from the ground up. From testing, this seems to eliminate the inaccuracy from bombers shifting altitude. It may even make Janus useful!
Have fun everyone!
