H1Z1 Companion Twitch Bot

Hey guys another quick update about our latest feature thats just being deployed to the site.

In our quest to reach out and provide database services, we have now created a companion chat bot for Twitch that any of our site users can add into their channels.

The bot currently only provides a few simple commands including !craft which searches our database directly for recipes and returns to chat the required materials needed to make them. I'm hoping to extend these commands over time and I'm open to any suggestions the community has of what they may like.

This bot is free to use and can be added to your channel directly from this page, I hope it can be of use to you.

Post Patch notes for Client version

After a rocky start to the morning (with client version we patched the major crash bug that appears to have been caused by some threaded code issues. After seeing the volume of crashes, we locked the servers until we addressed the significant crash.
  • A few reports have come in about the client hanging on exit, we're looking at that.
  • The zombie density and distribution changed pretty significantly, so you will find them in different areas, and hopefully in generally larger amounts. You will probably find FEWER of them wandering lonely in the wilderness for now.
  • With the increase in zombie and other characters, there's a chance there will be lag-related issues.
As usual, I will update if we find more things and you can reply here with additional issues.

UPDATE: We're looking at the adjustments to reduce the lag-related issues.

UPDATE: I've been on the servers most of the day adjusting settings to deal with some of the lag issues, and the team is also making some other adjustments to deal with some additional slow-downs on the server side of things.

Restraints Sneak Peek

So, A lot of people seem to be excited about the restraints so I've decided to show you what I was saving for the next data mine, but oh well here they are!
There's also sections of code that reference character states.
  • TargetIsProning/TargetIsNotProning
  • There is also a state of TargetIsRestrained which I assume is the prevent multiple restraints! :P
So from what I can tell you have to get the character to prone in order to restrain them. I feel like with this, it means player looting will be a thing soon too. Pickpockets unite!

Hopefully you guys enjoyed this little post, with all the roadmap hype it's just a taste of what you'll see from me when they start adding metric crap tonnes of content :)

Thanks and Keep On Surviving!
