3079 is a futuristic, open-world action first-person role playing game. You arrive on a planet experiencing constant war. It is your duty to find out why the warring factions cannot find peace on their own & hopefully restore it yourself. All areas, buildings, items, quests and characters are randomly generated. You will find unique lands & challenges. I hope you enjoy it! "Just want to say again that this is a great game! For those of you who feel like its a minecraft copy just beacuse of the cube textures used you really need to rethink what a game is about! The game play of 3079 is nothing like minecraft it is pretty unique as well as how the weapons all have diffrent stats and colors kind of reminds me of Borderlands. However it is still an original idea for a game and i still play it from time to time. You should at least try the demo and if you like it please buy it and support fruit! :D Still give it a 9/10 !

Report article RSS Feed 3079 Update out -- Mini fighters & more!

3079 has been updated to v2.10.6b! Included is a preview of mini fighter ships, 3D performance improvements & server features.

Posted by Phr00t on Mar 4th, 2012

Hey all,

Mini ships are here, but they are not finished yet! They will be mostly playable in single player games, and kinda buggy in multiplayer games. I also have to get some cockpit images implemented -- but its coming! Some texture improvements are coming for them too:


Also, 3D improvements are in with new settings, which should really help out the "slow walking" problem with low-performance graphics cards (e.g. Intel HD cards).

I've also added some other improvements, like a chat log (which replaces the /history command) that can be toggled with the ~ (tilde) key & server security options. Fixed some bugs too, like the "guys getting stuck in buildings" and grappling hooks not disappearing in multiplayer games.

Here are the complete list of changes:

  • Mini fighters "Work in Progress": Buggy in multiplayer, missing cockpit graphics etc.
  • Huge 3D performance improvements: Intel HD cards should work much better now!
  • Character collision problems / getting stuck in buildings should be fixed
  • More polished & detailed textures from Urcheon -- thanks!
  • Characters will no longer auto-follow you in multiplayer
  • Fixed underwater textures
  • Fixed a few rare crashes, some that only affected servers
  • Fixed a bug that caused some projectiles to not show up in multiplayer games
  • Fixed grappling hooks from not disappearing in multiplayer games
  • Added password protection options for servers
  • Added banning ability for servers
  • Made explosions a bit quieter
  • Extended the demo time period by 30%
  • Made the sniper rifle require a bit more energy to fire
  • /history now shows a chat log that can be toggled with the ~ (tilde) key
  • Fixed a bug that made quest item names not appear in a quest description
  • Using /goto or /home now disconnects you from a grappling hook
  • Tweaked some logic in the "protection" quest to try and resolve a bug report
  • Other more minor performance and bandwidth improvements

This is a very good update. It really added a lot of complexity and interest to an already excellent game. Those mini ships are not too hard to take down but complete swine to fend off in packs! Excellent work!

Good work, love the game.

Problem :
When I enter a stationary mini fighter to have a fly about it just explodes killing me.
Is this a known bug?

Regards,
M.

it happened to me too.

I landed on a roof with a fighter right at the end of the initial free fall. are we supposed to get some kind of authorization for using these?

You guys are flying right into the roof on takeoff without even knowing it -- I've adding a few seconds of "safety" to the next release, so you can take off in a better direction :)

Thanks for the reply.
Your dead right, of course!

For anyone else having trouble :

when looking at a mini-fighter aim straight forward, press E to enter the vehicle, then immediately hold Space down to gain lift.
