Chaos Chain

Salutations, dwellers...

Here is the next new update for the game. I was going to wait a bit longer before releasing this so that I could include even more, but I think I'm at a good point in my work right now to release what I currently have. Check out the change log below!

Please note that these changes are not in any particular order.

Update 1.3.8 Change Log:

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed some text going off screen
  • Fixed spacing between companions in combat being too far and resulting in them sometimes being under the UI
  • Fixed an issue where you could enter Augmentation surgery but it had the wrong character selected
  • Fixed some tileset pathing issues
  • Fixed enemy attack elements being overridden in some cases
  • Fixed enemies who used a callout in combat having their name display on a separate line (Above where it normally would)
  • Fixed a rain background sound having a noticeable break where it should loop
  • Fixed a dialogue exit not working correctly in Sergeant Ash's conversation after completing "Relief Recovery"
  • Removed some old, leftover code that was no longer necessary
  • Fixed the stairs in the Eclipse Basement area looking like they come out of the wall

  • Added a space between icons in enemy names (Like the skull for bosses) and their name text
  • Cybered enemies now have a processor icon next to their name so it's at least somewhat obvious which enemies have visible cyberware
  • Replaced a police roadblock in the Industrial Zone with a makeshift barricade (Trying to represent a low police presence)
  • Improved outer shading of roof tiles to be more contrasted with their surroundings
  • Improved the circuit background menu image to be more evenly spread out
  • Slightly increased the fade in/fade out screen effect when moving between areas (3/4 of a second now instead of 1/2 of a second to help with performance while changing maps - You're barely going to notice a difference but it helps especially in areas with a lot going on like city sectors)
  • Added some new icon art for various items, skills, and equipment
  • Added "Cycle" command to the equip menu scene to allow you to quickly change to the next character in your group
  • Augmentation surgery will automatically default the selected character equipment screen to the player character
  • Augmentation surgery will now lock to the player character's equipment screen (I may change this in the future if I end up allowing the player to augment companions but currently I have this blocked off)
  • Color-coded descriptions for CyWare and BiWare to match their main item colors

  • Water base cost increased from 16 to 20 (Clean water is pricey in the dark future)
  • Updated some dialogues slightly
  • Some changes to off screen lag prevention script (Please let me know if you encounter any issues, but this should help maintain good performance tremendously in larger areas)
  • Slightly (Literally less than 5%) reduced base movement speed of the player character (It felt a bit fast like you're always pretty much jogging so I slightly reduced it to make it more sensible for the game's overall mood and to help with visual performance)
  • Added a handler for auto-sorting shop lists based on price (So I don't have to do it manually each time)
  • All Hackpads are now 1 inventory size larger than they were previously (4 instead of 3)
  • Several more minor tweaks and adjustments

Please let me know of any bugs or issues you may encounter. The update will be available shortly.
