Night Vision, locked doors, melee changes, and more!

Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays:

Christmas day is tomorrow and 2018 is coming to an end. Its been a good year with a lot of progress. New weapons, new buildings, a crafting and building system, and coming to Steam. A lot of the framework is in place but there’s still more to come as well as improvements to what’s currently in place. We’re getting closer to the end of the road.

Night Vision:

Night vision goggles have been added to the game. They spawn in Tier 2 areas like the Military base and police station. Once you find a pair all you need to do is hit “N” or whatever key you have it bound to. Don’t use them during the day unless you enjoy being blind.

Locked Doors:

Doors throughout the world now have a chance to be locked. They must be broken down with a melee weapon or by shooting them. Most doors have a 20% chance of being locked. Some doors in Tier 2 areas have a 50% chance being locked.

Festive Items:

It’s the holiday season and Santa is in town, but he doesn’t want cookies and milk, he wants to eat you. The pumpkin head zombie has been replaced with a Santa zombie. Candy has been replaced with candy canes.

Melee Changes:

Melee combat has received some minor changes and now has audio feedback when a hit connects by playing a hitmarker sound.

Zombie Audio:

The zombies now make noise. They make noise when they get close or detect you as well as when they attack. The noise doesn’t play every time they detect you or attack you, this is intentional.

Winter Sale:

The game will be on sale for the entirety of the Winter sale.

Patch 0.9.1

Patch Time! This patch fixes a few small bugs as well as one more major one.

Zombie Spawning/Cleanup:

There is a maximum limit of 80 zombies in the game. After that, the spawning stops, so unless they are killed or deleted they will never respawn. But this was only the start of the problem.

The cleanup system was supposed to fix this and it did. But, it didn’t work if the zombies were “inactive”. They become inactive if they are too far from the screen. This is to improve performance. When inactive nothing about them could be changed so the cleanup system didn’t affect them.

With this being fixed there will be more zombies and more action. I think it’s at a much better level now.

 

Minor Fixes:

– Fixed color of a button
– Fixed game log date
– AI fixes

 

 

Patch 0.5.3

Patch time! This patch fixes a few bugs and adds support for Steam cloud saves! It may also improve performance a bit for those with a dedicated GPU.

Fixes:

Using a bandage no longer uses 2 bandages. Items will no longer appear craftable if you don’t have the resources.

Steam Cloud:

Saves will now be backed up in the cloud so your save should stay if you play it on another computer or after deleting and reinstalling.

Performance:

The game will now try to force the use of your dedicated GPU. So if for whatever reason the game wasn’t using your GPU it should now.
