didn't they originally plan on patching on wednesdays? if it's wednesdays or thursdays now, the only reasonable alternative is to do on either sundays or fridays (in cooperation with TVA then).
Apparently SOE still can't manage a patch in the time frame they say......................
So 1-2 more hours, to bad. Then I'll run some tests on the test server.
so, the good news is that SOE fixed vehicles sliding around when they're stationary on inclines. now they're rock solid.
the bad news is that all tracked vehicles cannot turn when they're stationary anymore.....:D
while probably frustrating, i can't help but admire SOE's handiwork.
I wonder if this is going to affect the Magrider. Honestly, the physics on the mag were about right, annoying as they were, since you know, hovering and all. I hope it doesnt make them stick to the ground too much, or make hill climbing impossible
Sounds good for us then. But no stationary turning on tracked vehicles is something of a problem...
New on Auraxis: PARKING BRAKES!
...... yeah, that position was stable. if you manage to decelerate to 0 kph, the physics lock kicks in and you stop moving. if the incline is really steep (the upper part of that hill) the tank slides slowly until the angle is shallow enough.
also, the bug only kicks in when you're in that suspended state on an incline.
What bug? The handbrake looks really great anyway, it will be easier than ever to park skyguards in advantageous positions and reap xp from all the post-patch esfs!
Oh, all the ESF-instagibbing from deployed Prowlers and AP Vanguards on favourable inclines...
Fuck you steam. Fuck you. Somehow steam has managed to rid my computer of some of the files for PS2 and is insisting on downloading it's version of the game. Seems I won't be playing tonight whilst I go through a year of updates...
I've never had any luck with MMOs (or anything third party with regular large updates) and Steam, I always go dev route and pop a shortcut in.
This has been a public service announcement from Captain Hindsight. Don't thank me, just doing m'job.
Apparently it just decided to rewrite 50% of the files, the launcher then sorted itself out.
So after defeating the Steam mini boss, I am now on the 96% loading screen boss. It may take a few attempts to down this one...
uhm, prepare for broken servers. apparently, we do indeed get double xp until monday. lol
so this is what they meant by weekly updates.. a dodgy patch and THEN a week of fixes .. and server restarts..
In regards of Steam simply disable the automatic update of Planetside 2. Should get ridd of these problems.
Also: of course they do double xp! I am not at home this weekend...
