We released a patch last night to fix a bunch of little things; just open Steam and the game will auto-update. Release notes!
-New users now have one week to verify their email address. During that period, they can skip the screen prompting for verification code each time they log in.
-UI: more colors, highlighting yourself and blackening blocked players.
-UI: game list displays captain counts / slots
-“Death cam”: Camera orbits the site of last ship death while respawning
- Added display and filtering of server location to match list
- Added ability to select preferred location at match creation time
- Added pregame match chat
- Global lobby chat moved to Steam group chat
-Field Gun has a decreased turn speed, rate of fire, turn radius, as well as an increased reload time and slight drop. No changes to damage have been made.
-Rocket Launcher has an increased rate of fire.
-Squid has a major boost in top speed, from 37m/s to approximately 47m/s. This should bring back kiting back and make the Squid a viable support ship.
-Discrepancy between intended balance and database numbers found. Should mitigate carronade issues
–Squid should have had 850 armor instead of 700
–Flechette modifier against armor should be 0.2 instead of 0.4
–Small Carronade should have slightly slower rate of fire and slightly longer reload time
-Stats and achievements are no longer tracked in Sandbox.
-Achievements requiring you to do something to targets that are inside a cloud now can be progressed.
-Store purchase errors caused by Steam declining transactions are now displayed to users.
-UI: player information popup refreshes automatically on rank info update.
-UI: running matches now correctly display ship names / classes.
-AI: disconnected players will now be replaced by AI crew on ship death / respawn.
-Fire Extinguisher no longer rebuilds destroyed components.
-Fixed some performance problems (sudden framerate drops) with ship deaths
-Fixed an issue with Steam integration that could cause voice bugs and possibly crash very high-end machines.
-Certain routers are known to corrupt the game’s traffic, in particular the Linksys WRT54G line. We are working on a more permanent fix, but bypassing your router should work around the problem.
