Post news Report RSS Eternal Silence: Balance Patch

Eternal Silence releases a compact patch to address balance issues and fix exploits.

Posted by on

Hey All,

I was in an Eternal Silence mood this week, so I put together a small balance patch for you guys. This should fix a lot of gameplay issues we've been hearing about for months. Don't ask why it took so long... I've been busy Wink. The patch is live on Steam right now, you should automatically receive it when you go to run the game.

Change list:
- All weapon reload and draw times were tweaked (yay!)
- Bombers now locked similar to gunships
- Increased carbine melee damage by 10 points
- Decreased tank buster damage slightly
- Increase time to hack subsystem (add ghost) by 1 second.
- Reduce capship damage from bombs by half.
- Added hard cap to tactical ship speed to prevent exploit.
- Added auto-recapture on Hardcore maps (neutral subsystems will slowly creep back to original owner).
- CP_Warpath tweaked to prevent intense spamming
- Small changes to cp_valhalla and others

That's it! It should make a big difference for the game though. Give us your comments, we'd like to know if we did it right.

Here are some beautiful shots Meat_Popsicle put together for us. You can view the full gallery here.



Enjoy,
Dan

They've got a really pro base for a campaign, i've seen what they've done of the back story on their website~ I'm just being an insufferable optimist! haha!

A Campaign? I doubt it. Almost no backstory to the mod at all, it's just a setting, and SP camps take a lot of time, and for a mod that's nearly dead, the payoff just wouldn't be worth it. They're probably better off working on a new project. They have alot of Talent and I'd like to see some of it go to good use.

Yeah, no story there. What's with the downrating? I gave a compliment to the Team.

You probably got downrated because you called it "a mod that's nearly dead". Do you even play Eternal Silence?

I play ES every day and I would say its far from dead.

Just booted it up yesterday at Steams peak hours, 2 servers nearly full. I consider that near dead, and it means no offense.

How can you consider it dead if people are still playing it, and there are still new updates being released?

Just because not enough people play a mod doesn't mean it is dead.

I always imagined this mod with 64 players. It would be so epic. Battlegrounds did it.
