Posted by on

The devs behind MechWarrior: Living Legends present update 0.9.2!This update features three new assets - the Anubis, Mithras, and Rusalka - as well as countless changes and fixes across the board! Your launcher should be able to detect the update and install it for you now.


--- BUG FIXES ---

- At the first launch, the game should not give you a warning for modified files anymore. If that still happens, workaround is just to restart the game.
- TC_Oasis can be loaded at any graphic settings now.
- Laser impact particle fixed so impact sound does now play
- TAG no longer plays fire sound on target of the tagging
- Turbine sounds on ASF no longer randomly change in pitch in cockpit but are instead bound to the throttle setting
- Fixed an error in an effects call in CL_Cougar_Mech.xml
- Atlas side torsos on XL engine models now have the correct transfer rate
- Fixed missing left particle bone for standard medium jumpjets


- Gameserver admins now will be able to add maps without having to restart the gameserver by using this console command: map_dir_rescan
- Improved network performance of Thumper ammo
- Attempt to improve general network performance and reduce rubberbanding issues
- Fixed 32 bit client not starting up in some cases
- "Show all objectives" command logic reworked
- It now acts as a switch, not as a button anymore. Pressing "o" key will show / hide map objectives in the HUD
- It's disabled by default, but it's possible to load a custom setting by setting "hud_showAllOnScreenObjectives" cvar in the User.cfg file.
- Added server log message when a team runs out of tickets


- ASF based kinetic weapons (UAC10/ UAC5 and RAC5) moved from energy modifier to kinetic-air modifier.
These weapons now have a 1.2x modifier against tanks, 1.15x against hovercraft, 1.2x against ASF and VTOL, and 1.15x against Shiva and Xerxes

- 1.4x EMP damage modifier added to ASF to increase damage from PPCs

- Fusion engine based tanks now receive additional damage to internals from destroyed side or rear armor from 1.0x and 1.5x respectively to 1.2x and 1.6x. The Huit since it has a very small engine will only go to 1.1x and 1.5x.

- Hovercraft internal health increased to a factor of 645x10% tonnage from 500x10% tonnage

- Removed transfer rate modifier from the Front armor of Hovercraft into internals, it is now 1.0x from 1.6x

- ASF and Vtol hitpoints per ton of armor reduced by 5%, armor was relocated from outer parts to the body to compensate for the loss, resulting in more fragile parts.

- ASF damage effect changes:
-Engines now no longer fail completely when destroyed but go at a fraction of the speed like ground vehicles.
-All weapons and bombs attached to wings now fall off if the wing is destroyed.
-Wings and Tail loss result in degrading flight performance. If the engine is lost or both wings are lost, the aircraft does not have the lift required to take off again once it lands.
-Lost parts cannot be repaired.

- All Mech Pelvises now count as Left and Right leg hitboxes split down the middle rather than as CT. AS it makes more sense that hip actuators are being damaged rather than the core which is much further up the mech. This may increase legging as a viable tactic due to legs receiving more average splash damage than before.

--- NEW ASSETS ---

- Mithras Clan Light Tank (25t)
- Anubis Inner Sphere Light Mech (30t)
- Rusalka Inner Sphere Heavy Aerospace (65t)


- Air_LBXes: increased pellet spread and added explosive pellets for better performance against ground targets and other ASF. Increased damage against ASF and Vtols.
- Light PPC: fires faster than normal PPCs for half the raw damage allowing for higher single point DPS and suppression, but has less splash and only 450m range. 3 tons.
- Rear Firing Laser: auto defense laser mounted on the back of the xerxes and shiva giving them some self defense against fighters.

--- ASSETS ---

- All Tanks -
Brakes finally invented!
All tanks should now have properly functioning brakes.
Deploy speed threshold increased from 0.36 kph to 3.6 kph

- Anubis -
Includes Stealth armor as a unique attribute.
Detectability radius decreased to 350m when active, giving superior sneaking abilities.
However, as a draw back, the Anubis does not support coolant. (the system needs to be sealed, or some such thing)

- Mauler -
Increased turn rate
Increased acceleration
Increased backpedal speed

- Masakari -
Increased turn rate
Increased acceleration
Increased backpedal speed

- Rommel -
Increased lower pitch limit from -4 degrees to -6 degrees
Tweaked collusion mesh to help permit side armor skirts getting stuck on terrain

- Long tom Tank -
Decreased Turret Yaw limits by 10 degrees.

- Chevalier -
Applied inertia to turret so that it cannot helicopter at extreme speeds anymore
Reworked driving model: Now has better turning at slower speeds and better gear transferring from forward to reverse but turns much slower at high speeds

- Ryoken -
Fixed missing hitboxes for the tips of lasers mounted in the side torsos, before these would eat shots.
Max Yaw decreed to 100 degrees from 110 degrees
Added cockpit Art.

--- WEAPONS ---

- Bisect of previous air_MRM nerf to bring it to 15% reduction in blast radius rather than 30%
- Increased speed of LBX pellets from 1800 to 2600
- Removed Light kinetic modifier from UAC5
- Increased tracking speed of CLRM but increased cloud spread
- Increased Tbolt-20 ammo per clip from 4 to 5
- Decreased spread on HAGs slightly, smaller HAGs have tighter spread
- HVAC10 splash increased to be greater than AC10 but still less than AC20
- Slight increase to AC/10 and HVAC/10 splash damage.
- Increased HVAC10 ROF from 20 to 22.5 (from 3 seconds to 2.66 seconds)
- Long tom shells moved to the same splash model as other weapons. They now to 2/3 of their damage near the impact point and 1/3 additional damage in the nearmiss area. Also decreased damage by 5%.
- Decreased and normalized all NARC lifetimes to 25 seconds from 30/38 seconds for (c)narc/inarc respectively
- Increased ROF on AC/5 from 11.45 to 13 (from 5.2 seconds to 4.6 seconds)
- Restored prenerf AIR_SSRM ROF back to 350.
- Heavy laser damage and heat decreased by 6%. They were "overjuiced" causing both too much damage and too much heat when compared to their CBT equivalents. Also decreased Heavy Large Laser heat by a further 6% due the current model's heat being greater than the CBT equivalent.
- Thumper Artillery Speed increased from 550 to 700


- Tbolt-20s are not considered 12 tons from 13 tons

- Increased Oro base chassis price by 5k

- Ticket Values for some assets tweaked :
{ Stormcrow 10->11 } { Loki 10->9 }

- Ticket bleed from base caps in TC now reduced for the first ~10 minutes of the game, starting at 10% bleed strength in the first minute increasing gradually up to 100% at 10 minutes.(this is to help prevent large ticket leads from accumulating from relatively small skirmishes early on)

--- HUD ---

- Rework of the Mech and Tank radar scopes. Hexagon-styled noise removed and increased size a bit
- Increased opacity for Mech and ASF radar scopes

--- MISC ---

- Fixed a shader bug that would occur when a specific console command is used before buying certain assets
- Updated green and blue solid paints


--- GAMEPLAY ---

- If you are lucky, your pulse lasers occasionally will fire an additional laser pulse. Despite being useful in some situations, this is not intended. Sorry! :)
- If you are unlucky, instead, when you're landing in an ASF, sometimes the pilot will die, leaving the asset intact. This, unlike the (now fixed) Runway Fireball Syndrome, though, happens very rarely, so you must be really unlucky for this to happen.
- In the Coupled Unlocked mode, when the reticule is very close to the center of the screen, the torso will stop moving, but the reticule will keep trying to recenter.
- The Oro and Rommel cannot turn while reversing.
- The Rear Firing Laser auto turret fires when mouse1 is pressed.


- Crashes can happen. Workarounds are available in the Troubleshooting guide.
- You might get stuck in the connecting screen. This depends on your ISP, but if that happens, a workaround is available in our Troubleshooting guide.

--- HUD ---

- Certain HUD elements might overlap other UI elements.

--- CONTROLS ---

- DirectInput Joystick support has been removed due to instability. You can continue using your joystick by following this guide:
