Features & Improvements

First person improvements
The first person view is now properly implemented. Started as a small feature with just a different camera position, we now have a 'real' first person mode. The perspective got changed, so that more of the weapon is visible. The fov does no longer affect how the weapons look and the overall feel of weapons got improved. Instead of being static, they are now a bit disconnected from the player while moving and pre-move slightly while rotating. Depending on the weapon, they are more or less sluggish.
To further improve the first person view, there are small animations when jumping and landing.

First person view by default
With the changes made to first person and the increased amount of options for players to interact with objects in the world, it was time to make first person the default view when starting a battle to make interactions easier.

Animation improvements
The rifle animations got slightly adjusted to have better default poses. There was a lot of snapping in some repeating animations, which got fixed now and everything is smooth. In addition, there are new animations for pump shotguns, repeat rifles and bullpup reloads.
The pistol animations got reworked. Units will now hold the pistols closer and more centered which also fixes the annoying off center aiming when playing as a player with a pistol.
Also, ranged weapons will now be blocked when the muzzle hits a wall in first person, which means you can no longer glitch shoot through walls.

Recoil improvements
Recoil got completely reworked and will now continue after a lot of shots. Previously the recoil stopped when the weapon reached a certain point. Weapons will now move more with more horizontal recoil, which can be difficult to predict and control when shooting fully automatic weapons. Shooting while moving is also more difficult. Overall, rifles have much more recoil than before and submachine guns are very easy to control. You can see the individual recoil values for each weapon in the arsenal.

The best way to experience the changes to the weapon feeling by playing, but here is a small video to show some of the changes above:

Other improvements

  • The OKP and PSO sights can now be attached to the S12 rifle
  • Taking damage repeatedly in very short time is now more obvious
  • Attachments modify how sluggish a weapon is
  • Shotguns will now reload 50% faster, but pump shotguns require to be pumped before shooting again
Bug fixes

There are a lot of bug fixes in this update to improve the overall experience of the game

  • Fixed shadow flickering while aiming down sights

  • Fixed a lot of problems related to prefab placement and duplicating selected objects

  • Fixed that shooting too fast after running would cause the weapon to get stuck in the run animation

  • Fixed that spamming the weapon key (1, 2, 3, 4) would reset the recoil

  • Deleting custom units will now directly remove them from the game and always delete their icons correctly (when deleting from the embedded unit editor in the battle editor, you can still place deleted units in the editor until you restart it)

  • Fixed that custom zombie units could not be added to zombie spawners

  • Fixed that keyboard shortcuts for selected units did not work while the mouse was hovering the UI
