I Shall Remain - August Update

August update changes

- Holland Tunnel scene
- Holland Tunnel Train Yard scene
- Story and maps related content added
- Train yard, country side, river docks graphical themes added
- New Sherman tank added, old Panzer tank visual updated
- 2 new music scores added
- Jim Beret teammate is in (cannot recruit for now till next update)
- All other scenes improved/updated, visibility/collision issues fixed
- Sepia filter adjustment
- Teammate special abilities added (not final, some of them might change in the next updates)
-- Andrea: Medic (automatically heals anyone in the team when needed), Helping hand (automatically revives fallen teammates)
-- Tommy: Flashlight (he is using a flashlight same as you do but needs no battery), Cartographer (Reveal the current map and all details about it on request)
-- Patrick: Eagle eye (sees 2 times farther on minimap), Killer instinct ( Instant kill chance increased by 2% for everyone in the team)
-- Cathy: Merchant (All your trading actions get a 25% bonus), Teacher ( Everybody in the team gains 10% more experience from actions)
-- Thomas: Divine intervention (Resistances for all Infected reduced by 15%), Slayer (All elite Infected get 50% more damage))
- Teammate commands updated
-- Engage (Freely engage enemies in a large area around the main character)
-- Hold (Hold current location until another command is given)
-- Regroup (Follow closely and attack in a small area around the main character)
-- Move to position (Move to the specified location and hold it until another command is given)
-- Dismiss (The teammate will not be part of your team anymore)
-- Talk (Start or follow up on discussions))
- Teammate command UI added (shows while paused). Using SHIFT key when selecting a command will apply to the entire squad
- Add teammate's info on world map (from now on you can see in which visited map there are teammates to hire)
- Added AI logic for evading mines and grenades for teammates
- Squad limit condition added, based on the Leadership skill and its doctrines you could increase the limit further
- Implement level-up doctrines for teammates (the teammates will learn the level up doctrines the same way you do when your level increases)
- Add "enforce melee weapon using scraps" option similar with "enhance ammo" for ranged weapons option
- Locker added to each safe scene (one in the church, the other in Andrea and Dr Andre Gratia building)
- Infected mutations added
-- LegKick for Mantis (from time to time Mantis will give you a powerful leg kick hit)
-- Explode for Zombie Crawler (will explode on death based on the mutation parameters, not yet active)
-- Wrath of Gunner for Marauder Gunner (will shoot straight up and after a small time period projectile will plummet towards the target)
-- Shoot over obstacles (they can shoot over smaller obstacles, same as teammates and main character does)
-- Unstoppable (they won't be easily stopped when hit like they normally do))
- Fighting boss music logic added, it will automatically run a BossFight melody when you fight a boss and switch back after you kill it
- Get quests button added (we can get quests now without passing through the discussion dialogs at all). Note that using this button will pass over dialog discussions' information and some rewards
- Sound volumes allow us now to gradually run a sound when getting close to their center (sea and seagulls sound when getting close to the water)
- 'After rain' weather preset changed to have sun light small rain at the same time
- Add help image for tank so we get more information what we can do while in the tank
- Removed restriction lantern upgrades apply to main character only
- Fire over time chance used everywhere now (on mine/grenade fire overtime as well), Fire over time can only attach once to an enemy now (this made the flamethrower too powerful in the past)
- Teammate lantern stays always on if we are in the sewer, subway or the tunnel
- By default when a weapon is created the cross-hair is not shown (they will only get shown when the weapon is equipped and get hidden when unequipped)
- Fix "flashlight doctrine doesn't always apply to teammates" issue
- Fix "flicker skill rectangle for Survival doesn't work, when a teammate has doctrines to learn/upgrade in that skill" issue.
- Fix "add weapon bonus by an trader is free" issue.
- Fix for crash when there were fire attached effects in the scene and we exited
- No effects are created at start-up now (we created one of each effect type, there were almost 200 effect types which increased the loading time and also the memory used a bit, they will just get created on demand now)
- Small fix to serializable interface which made the game crash in certain circumstances
- We can now user Space and Enter to confirm an option in Inventory, Character and Doctrines windows and Escape to cancel an option.
- Several actions (blood serum conversion, trade, scavenge, read books) are now giving experience to entire squad
- Fixed issues with particle systems in the last 2 updated scenes where particles would update even if they weren't in view (this should improve the performance a bit)
- Flamethrower can't hit units behind walls from now on (they did and it wasn't fair since no other weapon did that)
- You cannot reload weapon while you revive your teammate
- Updated the "?" and "map" buttons in world map UI
- When main character inventory is full add items to teammates inventories.
- Now NPCs get their scale/orientation from the spawner who creates them (this way we can have a predefined orientation/scale for all NPCs)
- Adjusted the Infection hint timing when you start the story (the fade in will finish and then we will show the hint)
- Fix "show enhance ammo results is wrong for equipped weapons" issue.
- Add extra info in infection tool tip.
- Fix "second rank for 'Flying knife hands' unarmed doctrine is ongoing not instant" issue.
- Adjust redefine keys and UI (added "reload", moved "action" and removed selection teammates keys)
- Adjusted dialog lines for all teammates when squad size limit is reached (now if you can't get the teammate because of this limit a new dialog line will appear which you will choose to finish the conversation and don't hire him)
- Fixed the issue with the weapon cross-hair not updating when the weapon range is too large. Now the weapon cross-hair is limited to 97.5% of the screen and won't ever pass this limit
- Add logic to save/load squad levels for teammates, save/load auto-heal, auto-revive values.
- Add special function for area attack.
- Fix "doctrines doesn't always apply to teammates" issue.
- Fix "teammates bonuses doesn't apply" issue.
- Main character leadership skill gains experience when teammates skill level up in addition to level up an attribute
- Quest locations and quest zones are shown on world map when we change current quest (no need to go run-time for that).
- Tommy 'Reveal map ability' works now without the need to go run-time.
- Left and Right arrows works now in Character and Doctrines window as well
- Navigate using right/left arrow keys in Journal window.
- Sound volume triggers are triggered on scene initialization now
- Teammates skills/doctrines advancement revised.
- Do not adjust teammate level once we dismiss it (until we leave the scene)
- The siren sound stops when we finish the defend the area task now

Hey Ravioli!

I apologize for having to release it in episodes, I'd love to finish it all and get it to you all at once. We have humble beginnings, and for it we are going to lose some players.

Tell you what, if you decide to purchase a copy and aren't happy with the amount of content shoot me a message and we'll refund your money. I don't think this will happen though because our game is a BLAST to play.

the best,
Jake

irc.freenode.net/#steamlug is watching you. I know this because a bunch of other Linux users told me to post here. My guess is, be prepared for a horde.

Thanks for the Linux consideration!
