Bugfixes

Map Changes

  • Cyclopean:
    • Adjusted displacements around NW
      • This removes a visual 'leak' under the southern NW refinery
      • This makes it slightly easier to get up on the hill in the southeastern corner of NW
    • Adjusted displacements in city
      • This prevents climbing an unintuitively climbable area in the southeastern corner
    • Fixed skybox fog density
      • It's no longer a wall of grey until you get very close to a map border
    • Fixed displacement sticking through terrain in BE main
      • Kudos to anyone else who noticed that one
    • Fixed displacements sticking through terrain in NF main
    • Fixed an exploit where you could climb a hill into the NF main
    • Fixed (some) textures being needlessly rendered in northwest
      • If you find any others, post on the forums and they will be fixed
    • Adjusted displacements around the southern bridge to prevent seeing under the map
    • New 2D skybox
    • New lighting
      • Please report any lighting issues you notice
    • New fog
  • District402:
    • Preparing the map for AI players:
      • Broadened staircase to BE 4th flag
      • Slightly tweaked detail crates near BE 1st and 3rd flag
      • Moved BE resupply boxes at BE 3rd flag
      • Slightly moved poles near NF 1st and 4th flag
      • Added [disabled] bot spawners
    • Behind the scenes optimisation efforts
    • Fixed exploit where BE 2nd flag could be captured from outside its building
    • Added automatic attack/move targets that indicate the current objective
    • Tweaked stairs to allow for smooth traversal instead of jumpy climbing
  • Mvalley:
    • Added a border grid akin to duststorm to better visualise the edge of the map
    • Added a missing commander restrict brush on BE's dam ramp
  • Urbanchaos:
    • Decompiled to get editable source files
      • This might have caused unforeseen errors within the map. Please report any bugs you find
    • Fixed 1st BE flag dimensions
      • It is no longer capturable from the western side of the barricades
    • Moved destroyed NF APC prop near NF 2nd flag to allow easy vehicle traversal around it
    • Fixed exploit where players could traverse along a sheer wall near BE 2nd flag
    • Fixed some missewn displacements
    • Rotated NF resupply crates near NF 1st flag to face the correct direction
