Branch: Experimental
ETA to Stable: 5-7 February 2014
Version: 0.33.114855
 
Known Issues:
  • Spawns: Loot is not spawning in military tents
  • Spawns: Some structures in Svetlo currently do not spawn loot
  • Server: Servers under load can delay actions from the client
  • Graphics: Only 4 dynamic light sources will be rendered at one time currently
  • Crafting: Attachments dependent on other attachments (e.g. flashlight on M4) may be lost when painting weapons (will appear on ground, eventually)
What are experimental/stable branches?
In your steam application settings, you can choose a "beta branch". This allows you to opt in to our experimental branch to try it out.
 
Does my saved character get affected in experimental branch?
No. It runs on a different database, so any changes will not affect your character on stable branch.
 
I can't find a slot while on experimental branch!
Only a small number of servers run this branch. You will need to change your game back to the stable branch and play on a normal server
 
Can I join a stable branch server wil experimental branch client?
No, you would need to change your client back to stable.
 
When will this be in stable?
We expect stable to be updated before the end of that week (by 7 February 2014).
 
Why has <insert any bug> not been fixed yet when there is new content coming in?
While priorities are very important when assigning work, there is a limit to how many people can work on a complex task without making it even more complex. Also, many of the team are focused purely on content/design so while the important stuff is being fixed, they continue to provide content and design updates.
 
Is mouse acceleration being fixed?
It is not fixed in this update, but we plan to make control changes. It is not as simple as turning it "off" as the speed your character turns is not dictated by the mouse itself, but your movements combined with the type of weapon you have, how tired you are, etc.

"- Gear: Improvised courier backpack added"

Could make them since the latest stable.  :huh: 

 

"- Systems: Notifications added to UI for hydration and high energy"

If you ask me, less of these, more of sounds. At least for Hardcore <3

 

"- Config: Berries have more nutrition now"

Been trying to find berries in the woods, chopping down bushes, but nothing. For hours. Well... more nutrition is good. For the berries. The ninja berries.   :|

"Known Issues:- Spawns:

- Loot is not spawning in military tents

- Spawns: Some structures in Svetlo currently do not spawn loot"
 
But, loot also does not spawn in more than half of all enter-able buildings. Just thought I would mention this here.
 
These buildings include more than half of rural type homes (found in all villages/towns). Since previous update certain buildings have also lost spawn locations, e.g. back room of red brick bar, or "tool" room of large yellow house.
 
I have posted a bug report for this.

Items spawn in these places, they are just rare and/or other people find the area first and loot it.

- Login: Player queuing system introduced. Penalty waiting time added for switching server or disconnecting a server quickly.

 

This scares me a little.

 

When still no loot is respawning until the server restarts...... i feel bad

I mean serverhopping suxx as well, but sometime its necessary... for example when your selected server carries no loot anymore.... nowhere

That's the purpose of experimental. To test out these changes and see how we feel about them.

I find it funny how many complain about the game on almost all of the threads, then patch notes come out and everyone is in love again?

When you disconnect, you character waits around for 30 seconds (currently set in experimental but subject to change) before disappearing. Forgot to include that on patch notes.
