APB 3.6.3.0 Changelog


Recommended Posts

3.6.3.0

  • The public SDK and FDS have been updated.
  • Note for anyone who uses a custom hud.ini file: hud.ini will need updating if you want to make use of factory queue information on the HUD. Thankfully, updating custom hud.ini files should be a simple process, as all it involves is copying and pasting a new section. Search the hud.ini file in this patch for the [FactoryQueueInfo] section, and copy that whole section over to your custom hud.ini, and you should be good to go.

General

  • Introducing factory purchase queues. Can put a maximum of 10 vehicles in the purchase queue of any factory type.
  • Vehicles no longer appear at the map origin for a frame when they are created.
  • There is a damage penalty for blocking elevator doors.
  • Medic heal now has 1 ammo in clip and uses cooldown reload. Now controlled by reload time rather than rate of fire, it still has a 5 second delay between healing swings.
  • Ore Truck airlift from the Radar Dome now matches its normal purchase cost of $1200 instead of its old $1400 cost.
  • After being purchased, AI Ore Trucks wait 1 extra second before the AI takes control.
  • Slight adjustments to dazzles.

Infantry

thficon 0000.png Thief

  • Can steal multiple times.
    • The first time he steals, he takes 30% from the Refinery or 15% from the Ore Silo.
    • After the first time he steals from anywhere, his subsequent stealing takes 10% from the Refinery or 5% from the Ore Silo.
    • There is a delay of 8 seconds after stealing before he is able to steal again. Once he steals, the objective markers disappear. When he can steal again, the objective markers reappear.
    • While he waits the 8 seconds for the stealing ability to become active again, the Thief temporarily becomes radar visible. He is allowed to use traditional sneaking methods to attempt to remain hidden.
  • Gains points for thieving. 20 points each time for robbing the Refinery. 10 points each time for robbing the Ore Silo.
  • Detects stealthed radar objects, including mines, at 10 meters. This is more akin to radar sneak detection rather than the way the Engineer reveals mines.

  • Adjusted AP grenade weapon.
    • Given its own warhead, which does not inflict special burn damage
    • Generally affects infantry armor less than previously, including some extra medic cache armor resistance.
    • Buffed slightly against Tanya/Engineer.
    • Does 50% less damage to Volkov's own skin type.
    • Collision damage multiplier reduced slightly. 0.25 -> 0.2

Vehicles

Light_Tank.gif Light Tank

  • Slightly widened the tracks and track guards on the model.

Mine_Layer.gif Minelayer

  • No longer drifts to the left while driving.
  • Holding right click for 1 second removes its own team's mines.
    • Each time this is used, it still takes one ammo count as if a mine was placed. This means the team mine diffuse function won't work if the Minelayer's ammunition is empty.
    • Unlike how mines are placed (the team of the driver determines the type of mine placed), it is the type of Minelayer that determines the type of mine it is going to remove. You can remove enemy mines if you steal their Minelayer, but you cannot remove your own team's mines with a stolen Minelayer.

Mammoth_Tank.gif Mammoth Tank

  • Slightly adjusted secondary urban color for consistency.

Hind.gif Hind

  • Model has been cleaned up and given more details.

Buildings

  • Now vulnerable to C4 charges.
  • Once again make a crumbling sound when they are destroyed.
  • Visual damage states added. At 50% health, walls gain a texture overlay with cracks and other damage. At 25% health, the wall models start falling apart slightly.
  • The invulnerable walls are now visually different, using support bars.

tenticon 0000.png Allied Barracks

  • Fixed an issue with bots not attacking nor repairing the MCT.

  • Replaced the track texture on the floor with a diamond plate texture.

Allied_Construction_Yard.gif Construction Yard

  • Removed the upstairs spawners.

Maps

mapthumb_AssaultSeamist.png

  • A few of the Allied reinforcements now depend on certain player counts to be active.
    • At low player counts, there are fewer timed Allied reinforcements that arrive than previously. The only Chinook reinforcement to arrive is the Medium Tank, and the only Naval Transport to arrive is the one that contains the APC and Phase Tank.
    • At 14 or more players, an additional Chinook delivers an APC.

  • Center route has gem hot springs that provide mild healing for infantry, with the center being the best.
  • Both bases have been shifted toward the river, and have been rearranged, with a free non-respawning Supply Truck just south of each base.
  • South route is now a war-torn field, with trenches themed for each team, and all base defenses positioned to defend this straightforward path.
