    Dear Players,


    We are rolling out an update to remove the remaining Halloween 2018 content. (secret places, menu sounds, etc.) Next to this we have improved the vehicle system, fixed a lot of crashes, improved player performance and updated some other minor content.

    Let us know how your performance is after this update!


    Now, let's jump into the patch notes:

    Overall Updates:

    GENERAL:

    • The Halloween themed menu music is removed again. Also backgrounds should be back to normal.
    • Fixed a bug causing backpacks to un skin when logging out from a server.
    • Fixed a bug causing private server settings to reset when saving other settings.
    • Fixed major crashes related to the LOD / collection system.
    • Fixed private server rental price of the event servers.
    • Renewing a private server is 10% cheaper than renting (only if renewed before the server expires).
    • Updated the Thai language translation pack.
    • Car system improved. Keep reporting feedback. We are working hard on fixing the vehicle system 100%.

    CHARACTERS:

    • Fixed a material issue related to the new "Walter" character.
    • Fixed the store icon of the "Steve Mad Scientist" body part.
    • Fixed / updated some character part names for the Steve character.

    RE-ROLL FEATURE:

    • Some players have asked to make more skinboxes "re-roll-able". We have considered this but came up with the conclusion to not make event / limited skinboxes re-roll-able. The now completely unable to put that skin recipe in the re-roll window. It works very simple: a skin recipe can be inside multiple skinboxes. If ALL those boxes are non-rerollable the player won't be able to put that skin recipe in the re-roll window. As soon as ONE of the boxes becomes re-rollable the player will be able to put the skin recipe in the re-roll window. If TWO or more skinboxes are re-rollable, the player will still be able to put the skin recipe in the re-roll window and have a equal chance on getting one of the two boxes for THAT entry that skin recipe is in. And up etc.

    ROCKS:

    • Fixed major issues related to the rock and collection system.
    • Fixed major common crashes related to the rock and collection system.
    • Completely reworked ALL the rocks. Lots of them were VERY unoptimized. All rocks are completely reworked where we have optimized all of them, improved quality, added LODs (for better performance) and for some of them we updated / improved textures.

      NOTE: If you experience any issues / visual problems with rocks after this patch, let us know so that we can keep on improving them.
      NOTE 2: Players should feel major FPS improvements in maps such as Colorado, Oregon and Caliwood. We found out rocks and trees had were causing a lot of issues and FPS drainage. We aim to completely rework the trees for the next upcoming patch as well. For now, we did rocks as these were 70% of the issue and we don't wanna roll out a rock AND tree rework at the same time.
      Overall goal is to make you guys only "see" improvement (better textures) and at the same time have WAY better performance.

    MODELS

    • Updated A LOT of building / object materials. Highered quality and updated / improved settings.
    • Updated the barbered wire models / textures. These models were highly unoptimized. Re-made them completely and also optimized them up to 80% better.
    • Fixed an issue related to the Halloween Event house where players could walk through one of the walls from the inside.
    • Fixed the render distance of the white house.

      NOTE: If you experience any issues / visual problems with certain materials / textures after this patch, let us know so that we can keep on improving them.
      NOTE 2: We aim to keep on reworking and updating textures to give the game a better and overall new look. If you have feedback or ideas regarding this just let us know!
