here we go! Alpha 10.5 Experimental got released!
This is a big patch, maybe bigger as some major ones. Not because Planets look shiny in space now but because
- The plan is to start the new HWS 10.X Season together with Alpha 10.5 release. 10.5 will probably be in EXP testing phase for few weeks. In worst case it will be released a bit earlier than our planned 17th September full wipe.
- Alpha 10.5 changed few internal yaml and POI properties I have to adapt to the Universe, which only works with a full wipe.
- 10.5 claims to improve the performance significantly! You remember the muzzle flash discussion? The reason we decreased the ROF of Minigun Turrets because this caused lags? They are now send in a different network channel without influencing the main important one. Rubber banding improvements as well.
That said please
A) Please test the Alpha 10.5 EXP very good and let me know your experiences! I will probably announce a new dedicated “HWS EXP Test Event” for it soon.
B) Prepare slowly for the full wipe and please, if you have time, I would value dedicated “HWS 10 season feedback” topics in the forum. I’m not sure I will have time for a big HWS Survey again. A lot is going on right now.
What was good, what was bad, what can be improved, etc.
Thanks a lot in advance!
Your HWS Team
