    EU - SOLO & SQUAD, First-person / Third-person
    ASIA - SOLO & SQUAD, First-person / Third-person

    On this test build, you will be able to try out vaulting & climbing again and test other features. You will also notice the changes we made to some mechanics to make them more balanced.
    Below are the patch notes for the second PC 1.0 test build.


    Optimization


    Optimize character animations
    Added LODs to further optimize weapon rendering for long distance
    Optimized various world effects
    Optimized various UI elements
    Optimized the sea by reducing wave effects
    Decreased terrain loading time
    Decrease memory usage of characters

    Animation


    Additional vaulting animation for objects with a height of approx. 60 cm or lower (when holding down the Shift key)
    Greatly reduced jacket/coat clipping issue when moving in ADS while leaning

    Gameplay

    Reduced the hit damage for hands and feet and increased the hit damage on thighs and arms.

    You must login or register to view this content.

    The healing period for bandages has been reduced to 4.5 seconds from 8.5 seconds. The casting time and the amount of health restored are the same as before.
    Players can now parachute and land on certain areas that were not previously accessible, including the outskirts of the island
    Added markings for zeroing distances on 15x scope reticle texture
    Added new 4x reticle for 7.62mm weapons
    Added new 4x reticle for sniper and SMG weapons
    Added blur effect on the outside of scopes
    Bullets now penetrate water based on the velocity of projectile (the faster the velocity, more shallow the penetration)
    Lowered camera position when proning in third-person
    Decreased firing rate of SKS and Mini-14
    Increased sprinting speed while holding DMR in hands (now as fast as assualt rifles)
    Decreased recoil for Mk14
    8x and 15x scopes cannot be attached to an M16A now

    Added 2 new weapons.
    - Added DP-28. DP-28 will be spawned in world. It has a 7.62mm 47-round pan magazine for 7.62mm. Sights and a 4x scope can be attached. It has low firing rate but a long effective firing range with high damage
    - Added AUG A3. The AUG A3 can be obtained from care packages. It's a variant of a bull-pup assault rifle that uses a 30-round magazine as standard and 40 rounds when extended. It has high muzzle velocity, high rate of fire and low vertical recoil.
    Kar98k will no longer be included in care packages. World spawn rate of Kar98k will remain the same

    UI/UX

    You must login or register to view this content.


    Applied a new font for English

    - Moved health bars of team member(s) from the top left corner to the bottom left corner
    - Changed colors and markings in the mini map, world Map, and team list UI
    - Added indicators for team members to check their status (vehicle, parachuting, alive/dead, DBNO, connection status, etc.)
    Improved interaction HUD
    - If there is no more room left in the backpack, the font will turn red to show that items cannot be picked up
    Improved the mini map and the world map
    - Decreased the saturation of the mini map to further emphasize information of team members
    - Adjusted the colors of the world map to increase visibility of markers and other information

    - When team members get on the same vehicle, a single indicator will appear
    Moved the kill log from the bottom left corner to the top right corner
    Modified the design of the health bar to show the point for 75%. The bar will not turn red when health is below 75%
    Added killcam feature that can be found in Settings. Now players can check killcams in the result screen
    - For Duo and Squad modes, killcam can be checked after all team members have died

    Sound


    Changed the lobby music
    Improved vehicle engine sounds
    Added a sound that will be played around the edge of the blue zone
    Added three different sound effects for the red zone
    - Sounds of bombs being released
    - Sounds of bombs falling
    - Sounds of bombs exploding
    Added sounds when character jumps into water. Sound will be different based on the speed

    Language


    Added four languages: Italian, Portuguese (Brazil), Spanish (Mexico) and Chinese (Traditional)

    Bug fixes


    Fixed camera jittering for passenger sitting on the back of a motorcycle with sidecar
    Fixed the issue where animations are not played when bandages are used consecutively
    Removed the pink circle that appeared on certain buildings when parachuting
    Fixed the issue where shooting was possible when vaulting
    Greatly reduced blurriness of the reticle while in ADS mode


    We hope to get a lot of feedback on our second PC 1.0 test build!

    Well lets imagine that a pistol shot does 2 dmg. 200% of 2 is 4. Now it does 4 of damage. A shotgun does, lets say, 4 damage. 150% of 4 is 6. A shotgun shot does 6 of damage. It just makes pistol more balanced.
