Modification Menu and Weapon Stats

Hello all,

Today we have rolled out a couple more fixes, and reworked the modification menu and weapon stats command. Since we have fixed the damage dropoff over distance of shotguns, we are also rebalancing them so they are still relevant.

NEW MODIFICATION MENU

The new modification menu allows you to view currently equipped modifications at a glance, and gives you an option to filter available modifications by type. Now you can modify your weapon much more easily!

NEW WEAPON STATISTICS VIEWER

We have revamped the weapon stats command display. Now it offers a much more detailed overview of the weapon statistics:

  • Weapon damage at a set of distances
  • Weapon damage at a set of distances against armored targets
  • Number of pellets fired in a shot, and the spread between pellets, only shown for shotguns and AF2011
  • Base spread, spread increase when firing, and how fast the additional spread recovers
  • Movement speed, movement and jumping penalty
  • Swap and reload speed
  • Magazine size and backup ammo

There are still a few statistics that aren’t currently covered in this menu, such as the scoped accuracy and how fast the weapon becomes accurate after you stop moving. We will try to improve it soon and bring in more information.

BUG FIXES

We have fixed a couple more bugs in the server.

  • Fixed an issue where all weapons besides Rifles and SMGs had no damage falloff over distance. Damage output of weapons are as intended now – the M24, and modded SVD/SSG08, will no longer one hit kill from long distances, and shotgun damage will properly drop off over range.
  • Fixed an issue where the Laser Sight’s swap time penalty had no effect.

SHOTGUN REBALANCE

Since we fixed the damage dropoff of weapons, we have also reduced the damage dropoff rate of all shotguns, so they are still effective at a range. In addition, we have reduced the base cone (spread between pellets) of most shotguns, so their damage output will be more consistent and remain significant to a longer distance.

Bashing Bugs

Hello all,

Today we have rolled out a small (???) update to fix a few long-standing bugs in the server. You will be able to hear distant sounds again, and hit-registration should be much more responsive. In addition, we have also gave the Bomb and Defuse Kit distinct activation sounds.

NEW SOUNDS

  • New sound played when initiating a bomb plant in Defusal
  • New sound when initiating a bomb defuse in Defusal
  • Reworked distant sound algorithm to make the fade-in of distant sounds smoother

BUG FIXES

  • Fixed a glitch where bullets sometimes fail to register a hit and deal damage
  • Fixed a glitch where assists sometimes give +10 XP or more despite only 9 XP being possible (1 per heart of damage)
  • Fixed a glitch where distant sounds of weapons are not played

Happy holidays and enjoy your time on GunColony!
