We're finally back with another update! The three main things to tell your neighbors about in this update are:

  • Fixed script crash when trying to award “Death to Deserter” achievement.
  • Optimized tank extrapolation method.
  • Disabling time synchronization after time variance has reached acceptable levels.
  • Time synchronization forced if drifted too far, continuous sync only in lobby.
  • Re-activated old extrapolation path – using explicit extrapolation instead of physics integration (should be cheaper on the CPU).
  • Able to set a lower max player limit.
  • A lot of optimizations in replicator and P2P, less memory allocations and reduced number of API calls.
  • P2P topology now only scans first and second order routes.
  • Fixed overlapping and misaligned issues in UI at half size.
  • Fixed missing minimap in SP, and centered it.
