    It was some fairly minor things.

    - Fixed a tiling issue on the plowed dirtfield ground texture.
    - Fixed console spam when the time of day changes.
    - Fixed some minor asset errors that caused some warnings when the assets were being loaded.
    - Update the shader cache.

    Some of these changes unfortunately resulted in the update being bigger than we had intended.

    Some months ago we changed how the particle effects are triggered. In the past, each gunshot would spawn its own emitter and then that emitter would spawn the gunshot particle effect. The emitter would then kill itself when the particle effect had expired. Our gunshot particle effects live for quite a while though so often there could be at least 500 emitters active at the same time. This caused a huge amount of overhead, significantly reducing the performance. Turning particles on and off in that case could perhaps make you go from 30 fps to 50 fps.

    Now all particle effects are queued on what we call the GlobalParticleManager which then stores a particle emitter for each type of particle effect that is being used. This emitter can unfortunately only be in 1 spot each frame. When a particle effect is queued, we first have to move the emitter to the position where it should spawn. And unfortunately with how the entity system works, this first happens on the next frame. So after we have waited a frame for it to move, we can then tell it to trigger the particle effect which now is 1 frame delayed. If then 10 players should fire in exactly the same frame. Then all those 10 particle effects will be queued and the last one will be triggered 20 frames after the initial request. But since a large group of players rarely fire their weapons at exactly the same frame, this is most of the time not an issue as volleys are usually a bit scattered over 0.5 - 2 seconds. This also means that if your framerate is bad, the particle effects will be delayed further and if your framerate is good, the particles will spawn faster. Gunshots are however being put in front of the queue where every other new and minor request is just being put in the back.

    This however means that instead of the cost of the particles being 20 fps. It is now in most cases just 2-3 fps which greatly outweighs the negatives.

    We could in theory have 2 of those particle emitters flying around and spawning particle effects with nearly no additional performance cost, where they then keep switching between who gets to trigger the requested particle effect. We have however found with the new smoke particles which is no longer entirely based on volumetric fog, but instead normal textured particle planes. There is an increased chance of z fighting (particle flicker, it cant decide which one is in the front or in the back) on the particles when they arent being spawned from the same emitter. So unless this can be solved, multiple emitters is not really an option.

    We just released another update.

    - Fixed weapon particles not triggering at long distances.
    - Improved the subsurface scattering effect on all skin materials resulting in more realistic looking characters.
    - Added more unique class selection images for the Union regiments on the class selection screen.
    - Tweaked the settings for the volumetric fog, resulting in slightly improved performance.

    You guys are making an old man very happy with the recent updates. Thank you and keep up the good work. Also, some small insights are very welcome by your community.

    PS: The Sgt.Maj. of the 52nd still can`t put his sword away by pressing 1 to change to the Enfield. ...maybe someone could have a look into this. Sorry, wrong section, don`t shoot!!

    Furthermore I notice the 2ndLt of the 52nd no has a somewhat evil/mad stare in his eyes^^

    Anyway thank you for all the recent efforts! The boost in performance is real! Although the majority of "bugs"/desyncs still feature the game. But I know you gents will tackle these too SoonTM

    Thank you! o7

    Discovered this after the previous 2 patches, but after the last patch, it happens a lot more. When you press Double Quick, the hud on the bottom right, does not change, it's still on Quick Time, but if i press T, it changes, the same happens when i got the 1842 rifle to change from Round Ball to Buck And Ball. Also going to Shoulder Shift and Shoulder Arms does not show unless i tab T again....

    I'm hearing a smaller 400mb update just came through. Any news on what it is? Thanks!

    On the new update there is a bug where if you shoot your weapon the smoke does not stop coming out until you've fired your next shot, then it continues where you've just shot, smoke never stopping. Seems to be like this for everyone.

    Since these latest patches When running triple monitors/screens in 5760x1080 chat no longer appears. Only fix is to reduce res to one screen at 1920x1080 in order to get chat back. I run 5760x1080 so I wont be seeing chat until you fix this..lol

    OMG I will be home in an hour. I hope they haven't patched that out until after. I have GOT to see this. Eternal smoke.

    October 7th - Update 163 Released!

    - Made the long lasting weapon smoke slightly darker to reduce the amount it burns out.
    - Fixed a bug where first choosing to spawn on the base, then instead clicking the flag and pressing deploy, would result in the player spawning on the base anyway.
    - Fixed a bug where a player would be unable to spawn if the player had left a server while it was in last stand. When joining a new server where Last Stand was not active, choosing the team which on the previous server had entered Last Stand, would result in a message being shown that the team had run out of tickets with the player unable to proceed and then being forced to restart the game.
    - Added (Spectating) in front of player names in the tab menu who are spectating with the free flight camera. While in this spectator mode, their names are now also colored dark Grey. This only happens for regular players. Admins will not get the (Spectating) tag added to their names and their name color will remain Red or Black, depending on what they have chosen in the admin UI.
    - For admins, the chat will now post a message whenever somebody starts and stops spectating using the free flight camera.
    - Made the nametags be visible on players from both teams while using the free flight camera.
    - Updated the artillery embankments throughout Harpers Ferry.

    Experienced this bug the last time I played, but had no idea how to recreate it. Glad it is fixed!
