Initial Release


New Content.

  • Diesel Power Plant Coal Power Plant Modification

    • A generator that burns coal.

  • BMS - Fabricator

    • Class: Advanced Construction Vehicle

    • Faction: Neutral

    • An advanced variant of the Universal Assembly Rig, the BMS - Fabricator is fitted with a unique kit designed to handle advanced or specialized construction and excavation jobs.

    • The BMS - Fabricator will have all the functions of the Advanced Construction tech along with filling in a number of structures including Tier 2 Trenches and Tier 2 Bunker Husks, and building any Trench or Bunker that requires Basic Materials or Concrete Materials.

  • BMS - Tinder Box

    • Class: Small Liquid Container Car

    • Faction: Neutral

    • The Tinderbox is a simple car used for transporting liquids between facilities.

  • Silverhand Lordscar - Mk. X

    • Class: Assault Tank

    • Faction: Wardens

    • A cut down variation of the Silverhand Assault Tank that sacrifices armour and protection in favour of a high-powered 94.5mm cannon. This open-top weapon platform is uniquely designed to intercept enemy armour before they’re given time to retaliate. Its moniker is a tribute to the maiming of the great king the Silverhand is named for; while his title was stripped, and his pride damage, his rage was never quelled.

  • Dragon's Teeth

    • An anti-tank obstacle that prevents vehicle access to an area, and is resistant to most types of damage.

  • Storage Room (Tier 2)

    • A Tier 2 version of the existing Tier 3 Storage Room.

  • Havoc Charge and Havoc Charge Detonator

    • Faction: Neutral

    • A high-powered explosive charge that requires an accompanying detonator. The Havoc Charge is highly effective at demolishing large structures. The charge must be detonated via gunshot. The Havoc Charge's true potential is unleashed when executing strategic demolitions at a safe distance.

New Features.

  • Retrieve Custom (Experimental)

    • When retrieving items from a stockpile into a stockpile Retrieve Custom is available. With one click you can retrieve a variable amount of items.

  • Spline structure build ghosts have had their maximum length clamped for ease of use.

  • Reserve Multiple function for Bunkers now allows for reserving and refreshing reservations to all Trenches and Bunkers in the Trench network to be consistent with Facility Reserve Multiple functionality.

    • The Reserve Multiple function has also been added to Trenches.

    • Reserve Multiple now impacts all connected structures, meaning connected Pipelines are also affected now.

  • Map Legend Changes

    • Bases, Resources Structures, and Intelligence subcategories now allow you to toggle on and off individual structure types.

      • These settings are stored between play sessions

    • Large Tracks, Resource Transfer Stations, Assembly Stations, and Field Modification Centers now appear on the map for allies.

      • Dev Note: Moderators may remove any structures that violate the code of conduct without warning.

    • Intelligence icons have had their sizes tweaked.

  • Entering the driver's seat of a Train displays the current direction of travel. This can be used to visualise where Switches are currently directed.

    • This setting can be turned off in the Options Menu.

  • Vehicles that are dumped into the water and the contents of their inventory are restored to nearby Stockpiles under certain conditions.

    • Dev Note: This is an experimental feature that will be tuned over time to cover the griefing cases while minimizing exploitation

  • When excessive Vehicle Self Damage is dealt to a friendly vehicle variant players are restricted from driving for 20 minutes.

    • Vehicle Self Damage has been split into three classes; Neutral vehicles, Colonial vehicles and Warden vehicles.

  • When a friendly vehicle variant is captured by the enemy a message will appear in chat for your team.

  • Reserve Stockpiles now have Activity Logs.

  • Significant structures being destroyed are now logged in the Region Event Log for the faction that lost the structure.

    • Logged structure categories include:

      • World Bases.

      • Logistics Town Structures.

      • Significant Facility Structures.

      • This weapon has been made the Warden equivalent of the Hydra's Whisper. The old Alligator Charge has been replaced by the Havoc Charge.

    • Warden light 12.7mm.

    • Colonial light 12.7mm.

    • "FMG" style 12.7mm

      • These three styles can easily be identified by their ammo count and SFX. Overall these changes are minute but MGs should now feel consistent across all vehicles.

  • Handheld Flamethrowers have had their 'added burning' reduced from 0.2 to 0.075. This means Handheld flamethrowers will take longer to catch structures on fire.

  • Storm Cannon repair cost reduced from 1600 to 500.

      • Maintenance Supplies are producible at the Factory, Mass Production Factory, and Materials Factory.

      • Maintenance Supplies are assembled faster from a Materials Factory stockpile.

      • When decay is prevented by Maintenance Supplies, the structure will also be repaired by 1% at the same time.

    • The Supply Station has been converted into a Maintenance Tunnel.

      • This will enable base builders to fine-tune which structures have decay prevented based on:

        • Range

        • Structure category (defenses, entrenchments, containers, etc).

      • The Maintenance Tunnel can be built anywhere without Foundations.

    • Sub-Region zones will have a reduced cost of Maintenance Supplies when server performance is optimal.

      • This modifier will go negative and require more Maintenance Supplies as server performance degrades.

      • This modifier can be seen from the Sub-Region tooltip.

    • Players will be able to tell which structures are supplied by accessing the upgrade menu on a structure. An arrow will be drawn to the structure that is preventing its decay.

    • Systems and content like the Supply Station, Bunker Supplies, Base Garrison Upgrades, and Supply Surplus mechanics have been removed or altered to suit new decay mechanics.

  • Changes to Concrete.

    • Concrete Materials are now a large item and can be placed on pallets.

        • Concrete Foundation (2x2) cost reduced from 30 to 15.

  • Players can no longer enter a vehicle that is occupied by an enemy.

    • Dev Note: There are a lot of trade-offs with this change, but it is ultimately being made to resolve a class of griefing cases. This solution was chosen as other alternatives, such as making AI shoot at vehicles with both factions occupying them, would be less friendly to inexperienced players and would further discourage collaboration.

  • Emplaced Weapons, Shippables, Tracks, and Train Bridges now have damage models.

  • The following Trench and Bunker modifications now cost 20 Basic Materials to remove:
