Update 50 Release Notes

Updated: Dec 12, 2022


Gameplay Changes

  • Tempest Cannon RA-2 can no longer fire from the rapid decay zone.

  • Collision removed from crates on the Large Assembly Factory. This is to make parking (and reserving) large vehicles easier.

Bug Fixes

  • Gallagher Thornfall MK. VI may shoot its own turret with ARC/RPG when boosting.


Gameplay Changes

  • Neutral structures no longer spread fire

Bug Fixes

  • Howitzer Garrisons can now return fire against the Tempest Cannon at ranges beyond 400m

    • EDIT: This was a flat increase to Howitzer Garrison retaliation range to 600m.

  • A craned packaged Tempest Cannon does not drop onto certain track layouts

  • Some vehicles are slowed down when they ram build sites without any build progress

  • World Tracks can be interacted with through Upgrade Mode even though actions cannot be performed on them

  • Gunner seats that require an engineer role don't give any feedback when the player attempts to reload


Gameplay Changes

  • Large Gauge Tracks now have up to 75% chance of not consuming Garrison Supplies when decay is being prevented on them. The chance is higher when there are less Tracks in a region.

    • NOTE: This is to partially address the feedback around the difficulty of maintaining Tracks. The effort of Garrison Supplies is balanced towards mitigating structure spam and staying within region server technical constraints. These changes are meant to alleviate that effort while staying within those constraints. Further improvements to the user experience for maintaining Tracks will be explored in future updates.

Other Changes

  • Feedback is now shown when artillery mounted vehicles can't fire immediately after border travelling

Bug Fixes

    • NOTE: This is to address the significant overabundance of shells. While this change isn't intended to impact the amount of shells produced (as input resources have not changed), it is intended to require multiple facilities to produce them quickly.

Bug Fixes

  • Underground Pipes sometimes resets position after attaching to two structures

  • Track switches visually don't point in the right direction for tracks that end and don't start on the main line

  • Having an intermediate Train car destroyed while the train is in motion can cause the rear train cars to remain in motion indefinitely

    • There are Underground and Overhead variants of this structure.

  • Pipeline Valve

    • Controls the rate of flow through a pipeline. Requires a Wrench for adjustment.

  • Assembly Station

    • Allows production of a wide variety of vehicles and equipment. Some variants require a base vehicle to be present on the Assembly Station before production can be begin. There are two types of Assembly Stations.

    • Light Vehicle Assembly Station - Essential vehicles and equipment are produced here.

    • Heavy Assembly Station - Advanced vehicles like heavy tank classes and trains are produced here.

  • Field Modification Center

    • Vehicles can be further upgraded into higher tiers using this Facility. Higher tier vehicles have improved durability.

  • Stationary Harvester

    • A stationary harvester that automatically gathers resources at fields using fuel.

  • Oil Well (Replaces legacy Oil Well)

    • Extracts Oil from an underground source. Must be built near a Crude Oil Field.

  • Fuel Changes

    • Fuel Tankers have had their fuel holding capacity decreased as a part of the balancing for Power in Facilities. Fuel Tankers no longer stack Fuel items but have had their inventory capacity increased from 2 to 25.

      • Note: To minimize the impact this change will have on the economy, we have reduced the input requirements of Salvage, Sulfur, and Component mines. As a result it should now be possible to keep these mines fuelled without player interaction for a longer period of time. In addition, all vehicles have had their fuel consumption rates reduced by 50% (meaning vehicles can drive twice as far on a full tank). Lastly, Players will be able to produce Petrol at their facilities and be much more abundant, but will require more effort to move around.

    • World Resource Mines have had their Diesel consumption greatly reduced to account for the reduction of Fuel transport capabilities. This means that mines will produce the same amount of resources but will need to be refuelled less.

    • Engine Room Bunker Modifications have had their Diesel consumption halved to account for the reduction of Fuel transport capabilities.

  • Fuel Containers

    • Stores a high volume of liquids, supporting a variety of fuel types. Nearby structures or vehicles can be refuelled directly from this container.

  • Fuel Silo

    • Stores various types of fuel, including Heavy Oil, Petrol, and Crude Oil.

Fire System

  • Flamethrowers will be available in handheld and vehicle mounted variants.

  • Burnt buildings can reach a Blazing state. Once this state is reached surrounding buildings have a chance to catch on fire. The impacted area is influenced by the wind direction.

  • Accurate Flamethrower bursts on players will set them on fire.

  • Many of the buildings in the world can be burnt, including Garrison Houses and Bunker Bases. Extinguishing fires can be done by throwing Water on fires with Water Buckets. Water Buckets can be filled from any body of water, including from wells in towns.

  • Some lighter vehicles can be burnt and destroyed by Flamethrowers.

  • Vehicle's can be thawed using Flamethrowers.

  • Willow's Bane Model 845

    • Class: Flamethrower

    • Faction: Warden

    • Named for the unfortunate trees harmed in the development of this highly destructive weapon, the Willow's Bane utilizes flammable chemicals and fires them into a concentrated stream through an open flame. This liquid flame ignites Colonial emplacements and garrisons to route infantry while reducing their defences to a pile of ash.

  • "Molten Wind" v.II Flame Torch

    • Class: Flamethrower

    • Faction: Colonial

    • Using a deadly mix of flammable gasses and chemical compounds, the "Molten Wind" is the Colonial Legion's most devastating infantry weapon. Employing ancient techniques, Mesean chemists developed a technique to stabilize and weaponize liquid flames, which quickly transform any flammable structure into a raging inferno.

Train System

  • Track System

    • Tracks are placed by players via the build menu. Tracks can be manipulated with the right mouse button and the scroll wheel, allowing for players to change the direction and elevation.

    • Railways can be constructed across region borders by placing Tracks near the region border. The Track will appear on the neighbouring region border.

    • Train Bridges and Fixed Tracks have been added in strategic locations in the world that player built Tracks can connect to.

      • IMPORTANT: Train Bridges are currently not destructible but vehicles cannot drive over them.

    • If Train Cars are closed enough to one another they can be coupled by going between the two Cars and pressing E (or Shift-E if there are multiple usable objects nearby).

    • Negotiate rail yards with Track branches controlled by switches. Switches are automatically placed a branch is broken off from an existing Track.

    • There are three classes of tracks: Normal, Small Gauge, Crane.

    • Normal Gauge Tracks cannot connect to enemy Tracks.

    • Faction: Colonial

    • A heavy-duty Battle Tank with thick armour plating and destructive firepower. The Lance is fitted with a 75mm turret and a front-facing 12.7mm anti-infantry machine gun. The heavy armour limits top speed, but in exchange it can take a lot of punishment.

  • Flood Mk. I

    • Class: Battle Tank

    • Faction: Warden

    • A heavy-duty Battle Tank with thick armour plating and destructive firepower. The Flood is fitted with a 75mm turret and a front-facing 12.7mm anti-infantry machine gun. The heavy armour limits top speed, but in exchange it can take a lot of punishment.

  • O-75b "Ares"

    • Class: Super Tank

    • Faction: Colonial

    • Armed with a dual 75mm turret, the Ares is a lumbering beast. What it lacks in speed and versatility, it more than makes up for with raw destructive power.

  • Cullen Predator Mk. III

    • Class: Super Tank

    • Faction: Warden

    • This gargantuan beast is the brainchild of Gray Cullen. Once thought impossible, the Predator was Cullen’s idea of how a great ship might operate on land. It boasts two sets of quad-barrelled grenade launches and a heavy-duty 94.5mm forward facing cannon. While limitations of ground-based travel posed certain restrictions on the scope of the project, Cullen wasn’t deterred and made necessary adjustments to meet his vision of the ideal land ship.

  • Aegis Steelbreaker K5a

    • Class: Combat Car

    • Faction: Colonial

    • Known across the colonies as King of the Rails, this heavily armoured train car is designed to protect and exert dominance over contest rail lines, especially when transporting supplies into contested territory as well as safely transporting infantry.

  • Balfour Stockade 75mm

    • Class: Field Gun

    • Faction: Warden

    • This robust field cannon not only allows infantry to fire heavy 75mm shells with ease, but it provides state-of-the-art curved blast shielding for maximum protection from crossfire.

New Emplacements

  • DAE 1b-2 “Serra”

    • Faction: Colonial

    • Built like a saw blade, the DAE 1b-2 emplacement gun is fitted with three cascading machine gun turrets. What the Serra lacks in power, it makes up for in sheer rate of fire for a weapon of its size.

    • Note: When we shipped Entrenched a year ago the Small Shipping Container was added (and the Shipping Container 50% capacity was increased) as a temporary solution to a transport problem that we had always intended to resolve with trains. Now that we’re finally here, the Small Shipping Container is being removed (but the Shipping Container buff is remaining). Pallets will instead be used to make direct deliveries from player facilities to the frontline. This will include certain hard-to-move items such as 120mm, 150mm, 250mm, and 300mm Ammo types, as well as some new ones. For more details on this decision please read the Devblog

  • The 68-45 "Smelter" has been replaced with the 40-45 "Smelter".

  • Some team structures have a new action button that allows players to flag them for Disruptive placement. Structures that have been flagged by enough unique players will be vulnerable to friendly fire damage.

  • Most vehicle variants are now produced at Facilities (Vehicle Assembly Station)

  • Vehicle variants no longer require tech tree unlocks, but instead will require a base vehicle for production (the base vehicle is still bound by the tech tree)

  • Radio backpack code transmission no longer works if there are vehicles or other obstacles blocking it from above

  • Encampments (Forward Bases) no longer upgrade into higher tiers

    • NOTE: Higher tier Forward Bases were part of a legacy set of Early Access content (like Gun Turrets, Sunken Pillboxes, etc were) that have been superceded by Bunker Bases and are thus being retired.
