3:50pm EST - A small client patch was released a little over an hour ago. It fixes a big exploit along with a couple other things...
First identified over the weekend, a huge exploit involving certain ascii characters in player names has been causing freezes, crashes, and headaches for players game wide. Thankfully, a small client patch was released a little while ago which fixes the issue (no server update required).
Other bug fixes
In addition to the freeze fix, this update included several smaller bug fixes. Here are some highlights:
- Fix for some deployables being slanted (like the large storage on shelves)
- Fixes for handling shadows when they are disabled
- Don’t kick admins/devs for exceptions
- Fixed code locks floating when placed on door
- Bone scaling fixes - no more huge boobs or amazonian women :(
New arrow head
Along with those bug fixes, you’ll notice a new arrow head with this client update. This is a good step towards some of the arrow head variations we first saw the other week.
After generating some hype in last week's devblog, Tom has committed the materials, textures and gibs of the new small and large planters. Keep in mind, these are only the visuals. The actual planter functionality will still need to be added in before we’ll be setting up home gardens. This does bring us one step closer though, so hopefully we’ll be planting inside soon!
