Unturned-Servers.net Blog Feed en https://unturned-servers.net/ Fri, 20 May 2022 18:00 CEST Unturned-Servers.net is a Unturned servers list. Its goal is to provide an efficient way for players to find a server that suits their needs and also for servers owners to get more players on their servers. 60 3.22.10.0 Update Notes https://unturned-servers.net/blog/375/322100-update-notes/ https://unturned-servers.net/blog/375/322100-update-notes/ Fri, 20 May 2022 18:00 CEST Changelog:
Added:
  • Alt hotkey to remove baked foliage with paint brush.
  • "Disable" option for sensitivity scaling mode.
  • Terrain material editor filter for only in-use materials.
  • Terrain material and foliage editor name filters.
  • Kick threshold for significantly exceeding per-RPC rate limits.
Changed:
  • Separated terrain editor brush strength value for each tool.
  • Assetbundle hash is included in asset integrity check.
Fixed:
  • Warn if vendor vehicle spawnpoint is unset.
  • Missing vendor and reward spawnpoint for vehicle uses player position as fallback.
  • Picking up items while climbing.
  • Invalid item conditions on tracked quest breaking UI.
  • Fists use melee damage multiplier.
  • Terrain undo/redo interfering with other undo/redos.
Details:

Client-invokable RPCs already have rate limits intended to prevent wasting server processing time. There was no penalty for repeatedly hitting these rate limits however, so time could still be wasted ignoring requests. There is now a Rate_Limit_Kick_Threshold option: if the same rate limit is hit this many times within the cooldown window the client will be kicked. For example a value of 5 means the client will be kicked the 5th time it is called within the same cooldown window. The default is 10.

The server checks both individual asset integrity and Unity assetbundle integrity to prevent cheaters from modifying their files to gain an advantage. Previously it was possible to bypass this by loading a different assetbundle on a per-asset basis, for example by adding a legacy ".unity3d" assetbundle to a vanilla vehicle. Individual asset integrity checks now include the assetbundle hash as well which prevents this exploit as long as the multi-platform ".hash" file is available for the server.

Unity 2020 Preview:

Unturned is currently using Unity 2019 LTS. Upgrading to 2020 LTS seems to be stable now and fully backwards compatible with existing content. If you would like to give it a try it is on the "unity-2020" beta branch, though there are still some known issues to fix next week. Assuming there are no unexpected surprises *fingers crossed* it should be in the next update.]]>

PEI Loading Screen Music:

PEI is the first map to receive loading screen music by staswalle!



You can listen on his YouTube channel here as well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rxki2vxbAEA

Terrain Holes:

Back in 2016 the Unity engine did not have built-in support for cutting the terrain. "Hole volumes" were hacked together as a solution for Unturned, and basically acted as a portal which disabled collision against the terrain. There were a lot of drawbacks to this approach however: for example bullets had to check whether they would pass through a hole before doing collision tests, and each pixel of the terrain shader tested whether its 3D position was inside a hole for transparency (which is why there was a limit on the max number of holes). Nowadays Unity DOES have built-in support for an unlimited number of holes fully integrated with physics, so the custom workarounds can be removed!



Unturned will automatically convert hole volumes on existing maps to the painted hole mask, but there might be some gaps until the level creator manually reviews the changes. Alongside this upgrade any maps using the old terrain tools are automatically converted to the new terrain tools, which have also finally been merged into the regular editor. In order to "dogfood" these changes I manually upgraded Germany, Hawaii, and Greece (which was using the old terrain system), so hopefully that shows I really believe this is an important improvement for the game even if there are some wonky effects on older maps that need manual revision. (Sorry!) If you are working on a map and run into any problems with this conversion please feel free to email me nelson@smartlydressedgames.com.

Miscellaneous:

Following feedback on the scope zoom and sensitivity fixes in the previous update: we should now have the best of both worlds! A new "Sensitivity Scaling Mode" option has been added to the Controls menu. The default "Focal Length" option is new, and should perfectly adjust the sensitivity according to the perceived size of enemies on screen. I would recommend at least giving it a try, but if you want both the zoom levels and sensitivity to be reverted to how they were before the previous update you can choose the "Legacy" option. Alternatively the "Zoom Level" choice is available which preserves the behaviour of the previous update.

Grass loading (especially with "scope focus foliage" enabled) often felt unresponsive because it started in a grid pattern North-West of the camera. Loading now instead follows a spiral pattern outward from the camera, so the closest foliage is loaded first.

In sadder news I am sorry to say that Unturned II (4.0) development has been paused. This post summarizes some relevant factors from my personal life, and how Unturned (3.0) will be affected going forward:

3.22.8.0 Update Notes https://unturned-servers.net/blog/373/32280-update-notes/ https://unturned-servers.net/blog/373/32280-update-notes/ Fri, 22 Apr 2022 18:32 CEST Changelog:
Added:
  • Climb interaction on ladder to snap without jumping.
  • Graphics option for maximum draw distance.
  • Options menus are available in the level editor.
  • Quit to desktop buttons.
  • NPC reward to override player spawnpoint.
Changed:
  • Zoom factors use preferred field of view.
  • Invert water mask while camera is underwater.
  • Updated Unity from 2019.4.37f1 to 2019.4.38f1.
Fixed:
  • Disabled specular on vanilla static materials.
  • Not applying conditions/rewards on quest and vendor dialogue responses.
  • Disable sky fog on water backface.
  • Missing character limit in uGUI text chat input field.
Ladders:


After the character movement update it became more difficult to climb down ladders, so at long last you can optionally press the Interact key to mount at the point you are looking! Hopefully this reduces the number of hospital visits caused by jumping to climb down. Walking into a ladder to climb is also still supported.

Max Draw Distance Option:

You are probably sick and tired of hearing about fog adjustments with these past few updates.


100% is a balance between performance and quality. It was the intended maximum in the first of these updates, reducing the draw distance from its previous insanely high value. 50% is available for some lower-end hardware, but players at the maximum network distance will be slightly within the fog. 200% is available for higher-end systems.

Keep in mind that 2x the draw distance (radius) is 4x the area, so 100% has 4x the area considered for rendering compared to 50%, and 200% has 16x the area compared to 50%. The level editor max draw distance is separate from the in-game max draw distance, and its values are 2x as large. Landmark draw distance is automatically adjusted for the max draw distance, so for example landmarks 100% with a max of 150% is not rendering any landmarks in the fog.

Miscellaneous:

Controls, options, graphics, and display settings can be adjusted in the level editor without returning to the main menu. You can also quit to desktop from the level editor or in-game pause menus, however the disconnect timer applies while playing in multiplayer.

NPCs can set a spawn location override so that the player will respawn at a marked location or vehicle spawnpoint. This override is saved between sessions. For example it could be useful for story sections or safezones.

Previously scopes and optics multiplied a base field of view of 90 degrees, whereas now your configured field of view is used.]]>
3.22.7.0 Update Notes https://unturned-servers.net/blog/372/32270-update-notes/ https://unturned-servers.net/blog/372/32270-update-notes/ Fri, 01 Apr 2022 21:20 CEST Changelog:
Added:
  • Mask when camera near clip plane intersects water.
  • PvP damage penalty when client is potentially faking lag. (e.g. "lag switch")
Changed:
  • Various minor gameplay balance adjustments. (detailed below)
  • Render sky fog before transparent objects. Water transparency renders sky fog in forward pass.
  • Updated Unity from 2019.4.35f1 to 2019.4.37f1.
  • Converted hardcoded Anastasia door to text chat component + IOBS component.
Fixed:
  • Warning when item blueprints have identical conditions.
  • Leftover holiday chicken on Liberator. [Thanks danaby2]
  • Capturing satellite image when assets are missing from level.
  • Singleplayer pause menu also pauses audio globally. [Thanks Toothy Deerryte]
Balance Improvements:

It is widely agreed that some balance adjustments are long overdue, so this update combines a variety of work-in-progress upgrades from the past few months of tuning and feedback:
  • Recoil on the Maplestrike has been decreased by 5%, and the recoil control buff from Sharpshooter has been changed from 50% to 95%.
  • Draw distance has been further reduced down to 256m. Inflation of map sizes in open-world AAA games make it harder for us to compete, so the extremely exaggerated fog in Unturned at least makes the map FEEL bigger.
  • Green skin color hues have been removed from the Permanent Gold Upgrade. They made it too easy to blend into grassy maps like Kuwait and Arid. Instead, they are now a complimentary benefit of the new subscription-based Platinum Upgrade DLC. Locking them behind a more expensive paywall makes them rarer, and thus more balanced.
  • Helicopter audio volume has been increased by 220% to better convey how intimidating it should feel to see a helicopter flying toward your base. The deafening volume for passengers helps balance out how useful they are.
  • It was unfair for zombies to use navmesh pathfinding when animals cannot, so zombie AI has been replaced by animal AI. Use of flares and other zombie-attracting items is encouraged to help them get unstuck from corners.
  • Devkit was overpowered because it had features missing from the regular editor, so two new level editors "modKit" and "BoxEd" have been added which combine some features and remove others, evening the playing field for beginners to the modding scene. Editing mods without re-uploading to the workshop first is no longer supported.
We look forward to making further enhancements upon review of your feedback in the comments!

Underwater Mask:



The lower-left of this screenshot would previously have been a clear view of underwater zones, but now gets filled with the water color. This should help protect secret underwater locations and bases.

Fake Lag Threshold:

In recent weeks the exploit of artificially delaying game packets AKA "lag switching" has become more of a nuisance. To combat this, a new setting in the server Config.json file "Fake_Lag_Threshold_Seconds" has been added with a default value of 3 seconds. If there is a delay between input packets from the client greater than this threshold they will be penalized for a corresponding duration minus one second. For example if the threshold is 3 seconds and the server does not receive any inputs from a client for 3.2 seconds, they will be under penalty for 2.2 seconds.

During a fake lag penalty the client's damage against other players is multiplied by the "Fake_Lag_Damage_Penalty_Multiplier" setting which defaults to 0.1 or 10%. For example if the multiplier is 0.2 then the client will only deal 20% gun and melee damage against other players while under penalty.

Unfortunately false positives are relatively likely if the client framerate hitches, for example while loading a dense region. With the netcode rewrites of the past year these hitches should gradually be ironed out, but for the meantime the "Fake_Lag_Log_Warnings" setting can be enabled to help tune the threshold.]]>
3.22.6.0 Update Notes https://unturned-servers.net/blog/371/32260-update-notes/ https://unturned-servers.net/blog/371/32260-update-notes/ Fri, 18 Mar 2022 17:00 CET Changelog:
Added:
  • "Disable" option for weather command which cancels active weather and future scheduled weather. Useful for maps like Yukon which otherwise immediately start different weather when cancelled.
  • Editor setting to disable clouds on a map. [Has_Clouds in level asset]
  • Button to open file explorer in workshop item's install folder.
  • Button to open Logs folder from errors window.
Changed:
  • Save preferred in-game player list sort mode.
  • Increased level editor far clip plane distance back to 4,096m.
  • Sky transition fog only starts blending in past 75% of the far clip plane. This feels less foggy than the previous update, and helps hide issues with transparency.
  • Using weather command with currently active weather guid will reschedule rather than toggling.
  • Gentle snowfall no longer overrides sky fog.
Fixed:
  • Planar reflection skybox projection matrix.
  • Hide holiday-restricted props from satellite capture.
  • With streamer mode enabled show in-game player list using redacted names.

3.22.5.0 Update Notes https://unturned-servers.net/blog/370/32250-update-notes/ https://unturned-servers.net/blog/370/32250-update-notes/ Fri, 11 Mar 2022 19:16 CET Changelog:
Added:
  • In-game option to sort player list alphabetically or by group.
  • Transition fog near edge of maximum render distance.
  • New clouds and aurora borealis rendered in skybox.
Changed:
  • Added more trashbags to the fall-cushioning blue trashbag areas under the Seattle, Washington crane, and adjusted their positioning. The changes to mid-air strafing made these more difficult to land on, and they could be difficult to see from atop the crane while in first-person. These changes make the landing easier to see and achieve.
  • Adjusted the car parkour at Rainbridge Island, Washington to be more forgiving. The changes to mid-air strafing made it more difficult to traverse. It should now be easier to climb down without breaking bones, and easier to climb up without getting stuck.
  • Added wild animal spawns in the wilderness near Chersky Farm, Russia.
  • Added item spawns to the upper floor of the Kivgrad Harbor, Russia office building.
  • Added item spawns to the interior rooms (and outdoor picnic table) of the ship docked at Kivgrad Harbor, Russia.
  • Tweaked the Industrial Generator from Rare Rarity to Epic Rarity.
  • Renamed the Umbrella (barricade) items from "Umbrella" to "Patio Umbrella".
  • Renamed the Flare (barricade) items from "Flare" to "Flare Sconce".
  • Updated the item descriptions of the Golf Club and Wreath.
  • Updated localization of the legacy editor's transformation tools for accuracy and consistency.
  • Updated localization of various console commands for typos, correctness, and missing localization.
Fixed:
  • Explosion armor value while naked.
  • Planting seeds on ghillie netting.
  • Overriding material IsArable / HasOil.
  • See-through underside of debris clipping into the unfinished building in Seattle, Washington.
  • Bad clipping and misalignment with objects around Kivgrad Harbor, Russia.
  • Misaligned objects at the Keryev, Russia factory building.
  • Railway track at the factory building in Keryev, Russia that briefly travelled beneath the floor.
  • Floating railway bridge in Germany.
  • Spot where players could rarely get stuck atop a crate at Shelton Farm, PEI.
  • Floating or misaligned objects in Stratford, PEI.
  • Floating snow around the Yukon road tunnel.
  • Bugged zombie spawn point in the Ibex Valley, Yukon where the zombie would immediately fall through the world once alerted.
  • Usage of various deprecated item properties.
  • Skybox tree backface depth pass on forward rendering.
  • Not returning attached effects to pool after parent was deactivated.
Special thanks to MoltonMontro for the localization improvements, map changes, and bug fixes!

Known issue: with TAA there are some visual artifacts between the fog and skybox.

Draw Distance:

The "draw distance" setting affects which nearby entities are visible. Separately, the "far clip plane" is the absolute maximum draw distance for everything including terrain, water, clouds, etc. Prior to this update the clouds and aurora borealis were drawn as 3D meshes, and similarly prior to the previous update (3.22.4.0) the stars, sun, and moon were also drawn as 3D meshes. This meant the far clip plane distance had to be long enough to cover essentially the atmosphere, but as a benefit the entire terrain was visible at ultra settings. Now that the sun, moon, stars, etc are rendered in the skybox the far clip plane has been reduced to 1,024 meters which means the entire terrain is no longer visible at once, but has quite a few upsides:
  • Culling is one of the main CPU bottlenecks, and takes less time thanks to the early rejection.
  • On first impression the old mesh clouds were often mistaken for flying boulders. The new clouds are a bit flat, but look less like rocks, and might be upgraded to 3D/volume textures in the future.
  • Skybox reflections on metallic objects include clouds, stars, moon, etc.
  • Sky transition fog makes the level feel bigger because it cannot all be seen at once, and is visually impressive / fun / colorful on many maps.
  • Improved depth precision within the actual level reduces Z-fighting.
  • The improved depth precision should allow a future update to merge the first person and third person models, which will make lighting and animations more consistent between both.

Official Wiki:
There's a new official wiki for Unturned, and all other things Smartly Dressed Games (SDG)! Welcome to the SDG Wiki[wiki.smartlydressedgames.com] – the official Smartly Dressed Games reference written and maintained by the community. For all things Unturned, and anything else we do.

With 4,000+ pages and 2,000+ media files, the SDG Wiki is roughly on par with its predecessor in terms of content coverage, while also managing to provide many higher-quality pages and templates.

Perhaps most importantly: we are hosting the SDG Wiki ourselves. Just like with our official forum, there are no third-party advertisements on the wiki. This also means that we can directly tailor the various features available to readers and editors. For more information, view the full announcement[blog.smartlydressedgames.com] on our blog.

Welcome to the Unturned Wiki![wiki.smartlydressedgames.com]

Especially huge thanks to MoltonMontro for the massive amount of time and effort he put into this overhaul of the wiki! It has been one of his main projects at SDG for the past several years, so reaching this milestone is a big accomplishment and achievement!]]>
End of Support for Version Before 3.21.30.0 https://unturned-servers.net/blog/366/end-of-support-for-version-before-321300/ https://unturned-servers.net/blog/366/end-of-support-for-version-before-321300/ Fri, 11 Feb 2022 19:41 CET
Today we have decided to stop supporting older version of Unturned before 3.21.30.0.

Unturned 3.21.30.0 was released on October 22, 2021 and introduced an important change to Steam query port used to query a server.

Servers that are still running on an older version before 3.21.30.0 will now appear offline on our server list. We strongly recommand you to update your server if you are still running such an older version.

Regards]]>
3.22.2.0 Update Notes https://unturned-servers.net/blog/365/32220-update-notes/ https://unturned-servers.net/blog/365/32220-update-notes/ Fri, 21 Jan 2022 20:26 CET Changelog:
Added:
  • Command-line override for active holiday. [-Holiday=]
  • Optional masterbundle source workshop file check.
  • Better asset integrity check system for barricades and structures.
Changed:
  • Expanded vehicle turret events with local aiming and inspecting attachment events.
Fixed:
  • Profanity filter was not being applied to UI for placeable note.
  • Toggle sprint not reseting when stopping movement.
  • Potential fix for dedicated server overwriting steam_appid.txt with extra zero.
Optional Workshop File Owner Check:

Modders can optionally include ownership metadata in their asset bundles now. If the game is loading an asset bundle from a Steam workshop file but the file ID does not match then loading will be cancelled. The intention is to help prevent asset bundles from being easily copied/stolen.

Added:
  • Allow_Placement_Inside_Clip_Volumes option for barricades. Defaults to true for charges.
  • Arena_Compactor_Extra_Damage_Per_Second option to prevent hiding outside compactor.
  • BinaryRandom component for events in Unity.
Changed:
  • Each client has multiple hwids.
  • Reduce NPC buy/sell rate limit from 10 Hz to 2 Hz now that we have bulk buy/sell.
  • Enable rich text for level descriptions.
  • Simplified holiday levels to just use server's holiday state.
Fixed:
  • Animal startle animation cancelled by moving.
  • Clamp requested stereo volume.
  • Crafted mythical effect not visible on main menu character skins.
  • Vehicle engine audio source not disabling.
  • Snowman slightly poking through wardrobe in main menu barn.
  • Zero kelvin tool will hide skins which already have a ragdoll effect.
  • Layering of emissive clothing textures.
  • Missing holiday redirected trees/objects not changing level hash.
  • Wicked aura and bananza transparency sorting.
  • Potential vulnerability requesting pre-connect server info.
  • Discrepency between how return button and Interact hotkey close vendor.
  • Arid skull bandana horizontal texture alignment.
Multiple HWIDs Change:

Note that this is not expected to catch cheaters because cheaters will still spoof their HWID(s). It should help make it more difficult for griefers to bypass HWID bans however. Previously the single HWID was a hashed combination of hardware info, so changing any minor detail would result in a different HWID. Now the details making up each of the HWIDs would all need to change before bypassing a ban.]]>
3.21.34.0 Update Notes https://unturned-servers.net/blog/361/321340-update-notes/ https://unturned-servers.net/blog/361/321340-update-notes/ Fri, 17 Dec 2021 18:00 CET

Arid, the new map from Renaxon, danaby2, and Dug, features a complete overhaul of the game's style and gameplay.

Featuring multiple tiers of deadzones and over 800 new items, with unique bartering, looting, and crafting systems that will make you rethink the way you play Unturned.

A gasmask isn't the only key to progression on this map, you will require numerous keys hidden around as well as a full biohazard suit and NVGs to unlock the full potential of the deadzones. (Powerful firearms, tough armor, hardened base materials) NPC quests will allow you to unlock blueprints for unique items and open the door to a wide range of new shops and barters. Barters are also a new way to get good items, allowing you to exchange junk in exchange for something more exciting.

Zombies won't be the only threat to your existence, watch out for military grade explosives left over by armed forces (and brick-wielding nakeds).

The map's layout is barren and fierce but worry not, the Bus Driver can take you anywhere out of the kindness of his own heart! Don't forget to thank him though.

Weapons and protective equipment will have important information within their descriptions, so make sure to pay attention to those! Especially to the ammunition and sights which specific types of guns accept.

To host a server running the map add its workshop file ID (2683620106) to the File_IDs list in WorkshopDownloadConfig.json, and set the map to Arid in Commands.dat.

This project was created by Renaxon, danaby2, and Dug. If you enjoy the map and would like to support them, consider checking out the Arid Mystery Box or Arid Bundle on the Stockpile:

Added:
  • Asset validation for compression enabled on low resolution shirts/pants.
Changed:
  • Negative Vehicles.Decay_Time value explicitly disables decay.
  • Share read access of several files on the server.
  • Request promo item grant during playtime drop.
Fixed:
  • Effects remaining attached after pooled item was destroyed.
  • Refresh vendor conditions, not just amount.
  • Velocity threshold for landed sound.

3.21.33.0 Update Notes https://unturned-servers.net/blog/360/321330-update-notes/ https://unturned-servers.net/blog/360/321330-update-notes/ Fri, 10 Dec 2021 18:18 CET Holiday Festivities:

PEI, Washington, the Yukon and Russia all feature new festive quests created by danaby2! This event includes achievements with unlockable skins, craftable Christmas decorations, seasonal makeovers for the NPCs and maps, and more!

You can disable these changes by unchecking "Allow Holidays" in the singleplayer config, or change "Allow_Holidays" to false in the server config.

Vehicle Decay:

In order to help clean up forgotten vehicles in the far corners of the map, each vehicle now has a decay timer. The timer is saved/loaded, and resets whenever a player drives the vehicle more than one meter, refuels, or replaces the battery. When the timer passes Vehicle.Decay_Time seconds (default 7 days) it will begin to take Vehicles.Decay_Damage_Per_Second damage (default 0.1).]]>

Added:
  • Bounce Charge [ID 1691]
  • Damage_Falloff_Range and Damage_Falloff_Multiplier gun options.
  • Bypass_Pickup_Ownership barricade option. Enabled for charges.
  • Nightvision_Color and Nightvision_Fog_Intensity options.
  • Movement_Speed_Multiplier clothing option.
Changed:
  • Improved movement input in multiplayer to reduce rubberbanding.
  • Strafing in midair is no longer immediate, player now has velocity.
  • Setting game server login token (GSLT) is required for the internet server list.
  • Converted hardcoded physics material audio effects to WIP physics material assets.
Fixed:
  • Explosive traps ignoring effect spawn radius.
  • Salvaging a Schofield now gives a metal scrap and a maple plank (originally, two metal scrap). This change is consistent with similar item salvages.
  • Split Coconut crafting recipe is now categorized under Supplies instead of Tools, just like other food-based crafting recipes are.
  • Makeshift Armor salvage recipe is now categorized under Apparel instead of Tools, just like other clothing salvage recipes are.
  • Cable Tie crafting recipe is now categorized under Tools rather than Barricades.
  • Large Slippery Plate now uses the high-tier armor multiplier (originally, low-tier armor). This makes it consistent with other metal barricades and structures.
  • Coalition Beret damage reduction is now 5% (originally, 15%). This fix makes it consistent with the armor values provided by other berets.
  • Birch Hole and Birch Ramp structures now have 450 health (originally, 500). This fix makes their health the same as other types of birch roofs.
  • Pine Hole, Pine Ramp, and Pine Stairs structures now have 550 health (originally, 500). This fix makes their health the same as other types of pine roofs.
  • Metal Ramp structures now have 1300 health (originally, 1100). This fix makes their health the same as other types of metal roofs.
  • Canteens/bottles no longer reference deprecated data properties. This change has no gameplay impact.
  • Typos/punctuation in the following item localization files: Fedora, Mafia Fedora, Tophat, Police Vest, Metal Scrap, Honeybadger, Machete, Military Knife, Shovel, BLT Sandwich (both variants), Bloodbag, Bandage, Birch Spikes, Maple Spikes, Pine Spikes, Caltrop, Barbed Wire, Ornamental Barbed Wire, Barbed Wire Fence, and Ornamental Barbed Wire Fence.
  • Typos in the localization files for Scaffhold objects #1‒3. They have now been renamed to Scaffold.
  • Disable cloth colliders on Kuwait parachute pack because unfortunately the game does not have a way for weapons to ignore them yet.
  • Dango dragon horns glasses layer.
Special thanks to MoltonMontro for the fixes to inconsistent item stats, categorization of various crafting recipes, and copyediting for the localization files.

Multiplayer Movement Improvements:

Movement rubberbanding has been a frustrating problem for a long time in Unturned multiplayer. The issue was that when the server position did not match the client position, the client would get teleported back to the server position to prevent cheating. Many servers would turn this off which then allowed cheaters to noclip and fly. Now after this update when the positions do not match, the client can locally re-simulate inputs that have not been acknowledged by the server yet, sort of rewinding and replaying time, which eliminates the rubberbanding. Servers with custom anti-movement-cheat plugins can disable them now. (not for vehicles yet however)

As part of rewriting movement it was a good opportunity to replace special cases for falling and sliding with actual velocity. This restricts the annoying midair dodging in gunfights, and enables fun velocity-related items like the new bounce charges! (and inevitable rocket-jumping mods too)

Game Server Login Tokens:

Setting a Steam game server login token (GSLT) is now required for listings to be visible on the internet server list. Previously server listings could be spoofed or faked, whereas now a valid Steam account with a GSLT is used to verify the server.

Added:
  • Accepted several weapon skins from the curated workshop.
  • Configurable default starting values for health, food, water, and infection.
  • Harvest_Reward_Experience option for harvestable items.
  • Forage_Reward_Experience option for forageable trees.
  • Halloween_Redirect option for trees, props, terrain materials and foliage.
  • Command-line option -LogLevelHash to debug modified level kick.
Changed:
  • Converted mouse aim sensitivity to degrees per pixel rather than arbitrary multiplier.
  • Moved server password entry into its own separate menu.
  • Separated "space" server list filter into "has players" and "has available slots" filters.
  • Updated character .blend included in source files.
Fixed:
  • Missing belt on left side of RCMP uniform top.
  • Zombie kill XP using Full_Moon_Experience_Multiplier rather than Beacon_Experience_Multiplier.
  • Damage potentially rounding to zero and/or getting incorrectly clamped during horde beacon.
  • Exception editing arena map after playing non-arena map.
  • Loading levels with mismatched bounds/flags_data/flags files.
  • Client locally removing group invitation when server prevented accepting.
  • Pool cue crafting recipes using logs rather than sticks.
  • Scythe incorrect thumbnail camera positioning.
  • Shipping cargo containers missing audio after metal door sound was consolidated.
Mouse Sensitivity:

Your mouse sensitivity has been converted to degrees per pixel. For example a value of 0.5 degrees per pixel means your would turn 50 degrees if you moved your mouse 100 pixels. I think it would be nice if more games represented mouse sensitivity this way because it would make it easier to copy input / control preferences between games.

Server Password and Filters:

Entering the password on the server browser screen was confusing. The "space" filter also only showed servers with space with at least one player, so that option was split out and replaced the password field, and the password field was moved into its own menu.]]>

3.21.26.0 Update Notes https://unturned-servers.net/blog/347/321260-update-notes/ https://unturned-servers.net/blog/347/321260-update-notes/ Fri, 03 Sep 2021 21:54 CEST Changelog:
Added:
  • Pooling (recycling) for barricades and structures to improve multiplayer performance.
  • Accepted several curated workshop skins.
Changed:
  • Replaced profanity filter with Steam text filter for performance reasons. The old naive filter can be re-enabled with the "-NoSteamTextFiltering" command-line flag.
  • Improved clothing CPU and RAM usage. Previously the textures were combined on the CPU rather than a shader. Custom clothing can now disable the CPU readable flag, and is no longer limited to 128x128.
Fixed:
  • Fishing catch timer not getting randomized.
  • Grid snapping when dragging on plane.
  • Use vehicle exit position when saving passenger position.
  • Slight discoloration on plush item face.
  • Include Level.hierarchy file in level hash.
Barricade and Structure Changes:

This update expands on the base-building optimizations from the 3.21.24.0 update by pooling barricades/structures that have been previously loaded. Rather than destroying these items when an area is unloaded they are now recycled (pooled) and reused in the next loaded area. Many changes and optimizations were made to the code for each barricade type (e.g., generators, mannequins, signs) in order to take advantage of this performance improvement, so there will probably be some unusual bugs to track down.

Modded barricades/structures with custom logic may need editing before they become compatible with pooling. To work around this, pooling can be disabled per-item by adding the line "Eligible_For_Pooling false" to their .dat file.

  • Time-slice item, barricade, and structure loading in multiplayer.
Fixed:
  • Slightly misaligned train tunnel on Russia map.
  • Verify integrity of client vehicle physics profile on server.
  • Kill counter position on paddle.
Barricade and Structure Changes:

Rather than freezing for several seconds when loading or unloading large bases in multiplayer, the work is now spread over multiple frames at a slightly lower framerate. This is hopefully better, but certainly not perfect yet. These improvements depended on the netcode rewrites from earlier this year, and likewise further improvements will depend on this update.

3.21.20.0 Change Notes:
  • Added command-line "-FullscreenMode=#" window mode override. Unity built-in command-line arguments take priority.
  • Updated from Unity 2019.4.20f1 to 2019.4.28f1.
  • Fixed a few bugs with -OfflineOnly dedicated server option.
During the Unity upgrade there were some instances where serialized material and texture references needed to be reassigned. Hopefully all of these have been caught, but if there is a weird new visual bug it is probably related to this, and should be an easy fix.]]>

Server Hosting Rule Changes Reminder:

The new "Monetization" field in each server's Config.json file defaults to "Unspecified", but can be set to "None" or "NonGameplay". If configuring this field please ensure to be truthful. "None" is for unmonetized or donation-only servers, and "NonGameplay" is for servers with purchases that do not provide a gameplay advantage. Players filtering the server list by "NonGameplay" will also see "None" servers.

Warnings will start being sent to server hosts breaking the new rules scheduled to take effect on June 11th. Read more details here.[github.com]]]>

Watch the Kuwait Map Trailer Here

Kuwait:

An unforgiving desert where basic necessities are scarce, weapons are even scarcer, and everything is trying to kill you. A mix of Yukon, Russia and Elver, the map mixes up the status quo of survival, making it more engaging, fun, overall less grind-y. Want to speedrun to the deadzone? You will have to craft your gasmask. Want to get straight into shooting things? Craft yourself a trusty rifle. More of the laid back PvE type? Try your hand at the available 200 quests. All playstyles are accommodated in Kuwait.

Besides the inherent difficulty that comes with the setting of the map; in which you cannot grow your own food on the land, your thirst depletes quicker, and visibility is on either end of the extreme spectrum depending the weather, you may notice several other changes that will impact the way you play the game.

Most guns you will come across are Semi or Burst, with the occasional Auto firing weapon. Recoil will also not be on your side. You will have to really pick your shots or risk wasting precious ammo.

Watch out for straw baskets that can drop anything from basic food and water, to life saving medicines and crafting supplies.

A lot of conventional features in Vanilla Unturned may have been abandoned in Kuwait, from freeform buildables to metal structures; you will have to seek out the alternatives provided.



To host a server running the map add its workshop file ID (2483365750) to the File_IDs list in WorkshopDownloadConfig.json, and set the map to Kuwait in Commands.dat.

For the next two weeks a variety of exclusive new free items will be dropping:


This project was created by Animatic and NSTM. If you enjoy the map and would like to support them, consider checking out their Kuwait-themed bundles on the Stockpile:

Assorted Hats Bundle
Divine Duneman Bundle
Mythical Sunrise Bundle
Mythical Sunset Bundle

Kuwait, Unturned's first desert map, is set to release on the 14th of May.

Lightning:

Dark grey fog signals the danger of lightning during a rain storm. The damage from a lightning strike is similar to a rocket launcher explosion, so protecting valuables with a roof is recommended. In multiplayer lightning strikes are always within half a kilometer of a player.]]>
