JS Game Update 20th December 2016

We have updated and unlocked the Live servers. We made a lot of headway these past few weeks so I'm going to list out everything we've done since our December 2nd update here. Please note that there is NO WIPE with this Live update and weather will not appear on Live at this time.

  • Added "Base Permissions: Visitor". Players not on your visitor list will be ejected when your base is sealed. With the addition of this base permission, non-visitor ejection should solve any unorthodox methods of base entry including boosting. We realize this is a controversial change for some of you and I understand that many people are going to be frustrated by this, but we believe this is a beneficial change based on the feedback we received over the weekend.
  • Server QOL (quality of life) improvements including exploit related fixes, server lag/FPS, general performance, etc. These tweaks should improve server stability and performance overall, especially for the EU servers that have been hit the hardest lately
  • General BattlEye updates to address assorted exploits/hacks
  • Spawn cap bug: fixed an issue where a server may not propagate loot to the correct distributions - this is a big fix that should dramatically increase overall loot QOL
  • General loot balance/tuning pass
  • Added the description "FULL" to our queue population lists (we now have LOW, MEDIUM, HIGH, FULL)
  • Added queue placement # back in (where you are in the current queue)
  • Fixed various vehicle issues (vehicles not exploding when reaching 0% health, vehicles being usable with 0% fuel, etc)
  • Fixed an issue with passenger desync/"cord pulling"
  • Fixed an exploit involving ATVs and gates
  • Vehicles will no longer kill you in/on your base
  • Updated POI restrictions for the church located in I8
  • Fixed hoodie issues (all hoodies now display their correct skins)
  • Fixed "Failed to load attachment" error message
  • Removed the Darko Zombie and his related functionality
  • Fixed several issues with shock traps (they will no longer go off forever after being detonated, etc)
  • Arrows no longer crash players near bases
  • Sub-base ejection (if you end up under the deck foundation for any reason, ejection is now instantaneous)
  • The gaps between metal gates and surrounding items are now closed so you shouldn't be able to place items there while raiding
  • Grenades are now equippable in the second weapon slot (default key 3)
  • Items no longer auto-skin. Note that this will not revert previously skinned items
  • Fixed an issue where picking up a partial stack of something destroyed the entire stack (ie: if you pick up 20 wood from a 100x wood plank drop, the other 80 would vanish previously)
  • Players now spawn with an improvised compass that can no longer be broken down for bottles. Be on the lookout for a better one!
  • Fixed an issue where some dropped items would not expire over time
  • Chat (prox/group/radio) should be working again
  • Crop visibility should be working again now once fertilized

As noted above, we are holding weather back for the time being. It will remain on Test as we continue to improve it, but it's not quite ready for prime time. It needs a full art pass, season tuning, transitions are a bit wonky, and so on.

Also, we didn't fix everything for this update that we wanted to - emotes not working for some people, for instance. We're still working on a few things like that. I'll start another "Live Issues" thread as I usually do after a push so we all have one place to collect our thoughts and feedback.

We hope you enjoy the update and on behalf of the entire Just Survive team, Happy Holidays!! :)

JS Test Update 15th December 2016

[UPDATE] - 12:30PM PST December 16th
A few notes about our Test update last night:
  • Boosting - this is Test. We're simply Testing this. We're not committing to it for Live just yet. But this is where we get to, yes, TEST things we're thinking about. What I'd like people to do is spend the weekend with it, report your thoughts, and we'll make an informed decision early in the week. Fair enough?
  • Shock Traps - we have a fix that we'll be promoting to Test here in a few hours. This will take care of them going off forever (or having the effect of them going off after they've been used).
  • Loot spawn - we're listening. We'll continue to try and tweak but as many of you have reported, a small change here means big changes over there. It's not an elegant system (and something we plan to overhaul for our 2017 plans). But it's what we have to work with at the moment and we'll continue to tune it carefully with the feedback we receive.
  • Weather - lots of people have said "wait, you said fix now and add later!" And that's true. This is literally something we turned on. We didn't add it. We haven't tweaked it. We just thought it'd be cool to turn back on for you guys. Also, we wanted to see what kind of impact it had overall. There are no plans at the moment to promote this to Live.

Remember guys, this is Test. We're going to explore things here. We want your feedback at all times but please don't assume that something appearing on Test is an automatic thing for Live. Like I said in my producer letter a few weeks ago:

Good feedback here so far. Keep it coming!
What's new on Test?
  • Added new base permission: Visitor. Visitor permissions are required to be inside a closed base. Closing up your base with non-visitors inside will eject them from the base.
  • With the addition of the base permission above, non-visitor ejection should solve any unorthodox methods of base entry, including "boosting."
  • Fixed an issue with passenger desync/"cord pulling."
  • Base part optimizations. Megabases should be less taxing on performance. Please report any issues with any base components / structures.
  • Several CTD (crash to desktop) cases addressed.
  • Touching a moving vehicle in a base should no longer kill you.
  • Removed the Darko zombie and his "strange zombie has appeared" message and functionality.
  • Lastly: A surprise. Jump on and see for yourself.

As always, please report anything you run into on Test here on this thread. Thanks!

KotK Game Update 14th December 2016

The servers will be coming offline on Wednesday, December 14th at 3AM PT and will remain down for approximately 6 hours.

Live servers are being updated with the latest build changes. This patch is focused on pushing bug fixes for bugs and exploits that we have seen recently. We wanted to ensure as quick a fix as possible for these issues.
New Feature: Kill Cam
  • When you are killed, the camera will now follow your killer for a short time so you can see where the killing shot came from.
Bug Fixes:
  • Further work on the infamous shotgun. We have beat the heck out of this one for some time and our reporting is showing really reliable shot registration and performance. Please pay attention to it, your quality of hits (how much of the spread hit your target, etc.) and share any videos if you believe you see unexpected behavior.
  • Reduced the amount of time before the game starts once you get into Fort Destiny. Rolling from one game to another should be quite a bit faster.
  • Reduced the amount of players that you will see in Fort Destiny. This was done to reduce network load to improve game performance on our servers, and should not really impact your game experience. This has no effect once you parachute into the world to begin the match.
  • Fixed a known case where winning a game could cause a “stuck cursor” state in the subsequent game, which could lead to the inability to aim or shoot under some circumstances.
  • Entering a vehicle prone will no longer allow players to move faster than intended while prone after exiting the vehicle. This removes an exploit that popped up recently that we wanted to eradicate quickly.
  • Cutting the engine of a vehicle will no longer make it completely silent. We were seeing some cases of rolling up on someone in stealth mode that was unintended. This should not occur any longer as you can hear the vehicle rolling.
  • FOV range is limited in the useroptions.ini to match the in-game range. We were seeing some abuse at really wide FOV’s that were giving players an unfair advantage.
  • Procoagulant was appearing as craftable even if you were missing ingredients. This will no longer happen and it will correctly indicate if you are able to craft it or not.
  • Appropriate right click options have been fixed on Makeshift Armor.
  • AK-47s can now be equipped via proximity right-click like other weapons.
  • Holiday Hoodies will now correctly have the hood down when equipping a helmet.
  • Fixed some clipping issues that occurred when wearing body armor and a parka, and the Frostbite Beanie and a face mask.

We are prepping another patch before the holidays that will focus on server performance to get as much out of our current servers as we can. We will share more info on this next week.

KotK Test Server Update 9th December 2016

Team Spectate
  • For the weekend, we’ve turned Team Spectate on. If you’re playing Duos or Fives and are killed, you’ll have the option to Spectate your teammates. We've disabled Solo to help with testing this.
Bug Fixes:

  • Cutting the engine of a moving vehicle will no longer make it completely silent.
  • Fixed an exploit where entering a vehicle while prone would allow players to move at running speed while prone after exiting the vehicle.
  • Makeshift Armor once again has all intended right-click options.
  • Procoagulent will no longer appear craftable despite having insufficient ingredients.
  • We identified and fixed a case where, after winning a game, the mouse-cursor to get stuck on screen after interacting with menus. This could lead to players getting stuck in a state where they couldn’t consistently aim or shoot. This specific case is fixed – please let us know if you encounter this issue so that we can continue to investigate if there are other causes.

Just Survive Update 13th Dec 2016

[UPDATE] 11:36AM PST, December 14th

We identified a gap overnight in BattlEye that we've now closed - keep in mind that we're able to see everything that happens in logs, and we'll continue watching and closing gaps (and banning players) like that one last night. It'll be a persistent thing, in other words, and not a one and done fix.

What's fixed in this push?
  • Arrows no longer crash players near bases. We hammered on this HARD on Test this past week. We have high confidence this is finally fixed.
  • Random CTDs have been reduced significantly. These may still occur from time to time, but the frequency should be far, far less.
  • Base ejection (if you end up under the deck foundation for any reason) is now instantaneous.
  • The gaps between metal gates and surrounding items are now closed so you shouldn't be able to place items there while raiding.
  • Grenades are now equippable in the second weapon slot (default key 3).
  • Items (weapons, clothing, etc.) no longer auto-skin. Note that this will not revert previously skinned items.
  • Fixed an issue where picking up a partial stack of something destroyed the entire stack (ie: if you pick up 20 wood from a 100x wood plank drop, the other 80 would vanish previously).
  • Players now spawn with an improvised compass (that can no longer be broken down for bottles). Be on the lookout for a better one!
  • Fixed an issue where some dropped items would not expire over time.
  • Changed spawing systems to be more lenient when spawning items in highly travelled areas.
  • Loot balances: Tactical flashlights have been completely removed from spawns (don't drop yours!); Compass spawns have been decreased; Backpacks (Military in particular) are rarer; Ammo balance (more good ammo, less R380 and 9MM - these are subtle tweaks)
  • Added the descriptor "FULL" to our queue population lists (we now have LOW, MEDIUM, HIGH, FULL)
  • Added queue placement # back in (where you are in the current queue).

We still have a few other issues we'd like to take care of before the next Live push we're planning on December 21st. We're looking at recent hacks, emotes not working, weapons appearing on your corpse's back after death, continued lag reduction and a bunch of other stuff.

I'll update here again in the morning when Live is verified up and ready to unlock.

Thanks again for your support this past week. This team is awesome and is doing amazing work and I'm glad you guys are starting to see what I've been seeing these past 2 months. We'll keep it up for you guys if you keep coming back. :)
