Yesterday, Garry pushed some changes to the UI. Specifically, the health bar and vital stats are now on the right hand side and there is more detailed information for vitals. Here’s some observations...
You cannot drown or freeze
It appears that in updating the vitals UI, some of the vitals have been disabled temporarily. This means you can swim underwater without drowning or getting wet. Enjoy it while it lasts because I’m sure this will be fixed soon. There is also no cold that I can see, however, fire still burns so watch out!
Also, the more I play, the more I realize vitals appear to be going down a lot slower than usual.
This is a work in progress!
I've heard some rumblings on the server about the new UI. Some say it's lacking style, others don't like the new color. Don't worry guys, it's a work in progress. The old UI might have been a bit more visually interesting, but it lacked important information about the vitals. I think this is a step in the right direction and I'm sure will evolve more over time.
Radiation not quite in
There was a tweet yesterday about radiation working now. This does not appear to be the case. Going near a big wolf statue doesn’t yield any change to the UI or notice of rads. No fuzzy screens and rad clicks quite yet my friends. Never fear, Garry is here! According to this tweet, rads should be in near wolf monuments on the next update.
How do I make walls?
Hopefully we will be hearing this question a lot less now that Garry has shifted the wording and icon around the foundation plan. It is now called the building plan and features a picture of a blueprint (instead of a foundation). I still think it should include RIGHT CLICK in the description, but this is a step in the right direction.
Character movement updates (not live)
Andre has been trucking along on the character movement updates trello card. He's explored nerfed jumping on slopes, reduced movement speed on slopes and properly handling stepping up small stairs. I spawned up a test server and ran around a bit, you're able to move up hills a lot better with these updates. These changes aren't live yet but expect your Newman to be jumping up hills a little different tomorrow.
Random radiation monument?! (not live)
Garry has been working today on fixing radiation near wolves and also snuck a tweet in there about a random radiation monument. I don't know if this is will be a new model or what but I love the sound of it! I just spawned up a test server to see if it's in the most recent version of the code, but have been unable to locate one of these yet (rads are working again though).
Server note: As of this morning, our server has been updated to the most recent version. The map has been wiped and we are rocking new map seed.
