Hi Galactic Survivalists!
Welcome to the public release of update 1.9!

What could be more natural than to check your wardrobe and bring it up to scratch, while days are getting colder outside - not only on Ningues. ;) How you do it in the real world is up to you. For Empyrion, we've done it for you.

For version 1.9, we've not only visually reworked the basic customizable armor models for male and female (including the underwear), but also the models of the associated jetpack versions. We have even gone one step further: Not only have the variants for your avatars that you can select from the start screen been reworked, but new ones have been added as well! Along with that, we also made minor adjustments to the motion controller and the use of the jetpack.

As a second important point, there are some important changes in the area of handguns, where there was a lot of overlap: it wasn't clear what the difference was between a "Rifle T1", "Rifle T2", "Pulse Rifles T1 and T2" and a "Laser Rifle", apart from the pure damage. For this reason, the previous model of Tiers, where there was a "T1" and a "T2" version for multiple weapons, was discarded. With 1.9, each weapon gets its own behavior that sets it apart from the others.

As an addition, we added entirely new weapons (SMG, Laser SMG and Laser Carbine) to the list of available weapons and took the opportunity to improve some of their sound effects.

Apart from the balancing work on weapon values, we also reworked various graphical effects: the energy beam of the survival tool, muzzle flashes and propulsion beams, e.g. on the jetpack, but also on the Vessels' drives.

Last, but not least, we have adjusted the AI in two areas. First, AI factions can now fight other AI factions directly when they clash on a field. Second, as a first technical measure, we created that AI fighters can now actively call their comrades for help. We will continue to expand this in the future.

You can try out the changes directly in a fresh environment: in addition to a slew of new buildings for the different NPC factions, we added a completely new, but very challenging game start: Ashon. We are curious to see how you like it.

Hello Galactic Survivalists!

The second Experimental Phase for Update 1.9 is here! Besides improvements and bugfixes, there are some new things that we ask you to put through their paces.

We have adjusted the AI in two areas. First, AI factions can now fight other AI factions directly when they meet in a playfield.Secondly, we have created a first technical measure that AI fighters can now actively call their comrades for help. We will continue to expand this in the future.

As a second important point, there are some important changes in the area of handheld weapons, where there was a lot of overlap: It was not clear what was the difference between a "Rifle T1", "Rifle T2", "Pulse Rifles T1 and T2" and a "Laser Rifle", apart from the pure damage. For this reason, the previous model of Tiers, where there was a "T1" and a "T2" version for multiple weapons, was discarded.

Now, each weapon has a distinct behavior that sets it apart from the others. We also added new weapons (SMG, Laser SMG and Laser Carbine) to the available roster and took the opportunity to tweak some of their sound effects.

Last, but not least, we took another look at the Sprint function and added an additional Boost function. Press Shift 2x and you will sprint faster for a short period of time!

PS: .Please note that all our official servers will be wiped with the public release!

Changes:
- NPC new group alert behavior added (technically; not yet set for all NPC's)
- AI-AI warfare options added to factions.ecf ( currently primarily affects Drones, Vessels, Bases)
- Added preliminary info to newly added (?) info overlay windows
- Suit lights now positioned on helmets
- Added a new feature to sprinting: To activate double tap the Shift key whilst running or sprinting to get a small boost
- New weapon models added & current weapons changes:
Projectile Pistol, Laser Pistol, SMG, Laser SMG, Laser Carbine, Laser Rifle , Rocket Launcher & FlameThrower

Hey Galactic Survivalists!

Not only on Ningues the days are getting colder. What could be more natural than to check your wardrobe and spruce it up. How you do it in the real world is up to you. For Empyrion, we've done it for you. For version 1.9, however, we have not only visually reworked the customizable basic models of the armor, but also tackled a lot of issues around the "Player Controller" and "On Foot Combat".

Among other things, the player avatar and the weapon handling have been improved with new motion animations. See below for more details.

So that you could try out the innovations directly in a fresh environment, version 1.9 comes for the first time in a long time with "Ashon" a completely new, but very challenging game start! We are curious to see how you like it.

Character Controller & Model
- The way how gravity affects the player has been changed to make it feel snappier
- The player now jumps slightly higher when the jetpack is activated
- Now only possible to sprint in forward directions
- Added new models for player suits: Interior suit, Light, Medium, Heavy & Heavy Epic
- New jetpack model for the following suits Medium, Heavy & Heavy Epic
[​IMG]

Gunplay / Rebalancings
- Added bullet spread to zirax troops & Cyborg NPC's
- Added Procedural Weapon movements to weapons & tools in 1st person view. Models can now recoil, sway & move down when sprinting.
We have also added some new settings in the ItemsConfig.ecf for control over PWM to allow players or content creators to make adjustments & console command to use in game.
How to use:
Add these new settings to any weapon or tool in the ItemsConfig.ecf to override the default settings for PWM:
Code:
  { Child 6
    Class: Movements
    StandingLocation: "0.0, 0.0, 0.0"
    StandingRotation: "0.0, 0.0, 0.0"
    AimingLocation: "0.0, 0.0, 0.0"
    AimingRotation: "0.0, 0.0, 0.0"
    RunningLocation: "0.0, 0.0, 0.0"
    RunningRotation: "0.0, 0.0, 0.0"...

Hello Galactic Survivalists!

As most of you have probably already heard, we have moved the AntiCheat module to a newer version. Both versions are from Epic Games, however Epic Games will only continue to maintain the new version.

Therefore, for Empyrion Galactic Survival there is the following change:
All Empyrion versions before v1.8.10 (with the old module) can only be used WITHOUT EAC from December onwards.

If you want to continue using an older game or server version, you should disable EAC until the end of November as follows:
- Players: in the menu "Options / Misc" set the item "Start with EAC" to "No".
- Server operators:
a) set the parameter "EACActive: false" in dedicated.yaml
b) if desired, access to the server can be restricted by a password, which will be given only to trusted players

Thanks for your help!
