Build V16.1 Released!

Recommended Posts

Build V16.1 is approved by Desura for download via their client, and the standalones are currently undergoing the Desura approvals process.

Build V16.1 is basically a large hotfix for V16, hopefully fixing several of the major issues with the game:

1) The Farm tileset crash should be fixed. This was happening at the end of the turn on the Farm tileset, and was caused when civilians moved and tried to vault over a wall. Their vault animations were missing, so the game crashed. I've updated their settings so hopefully this should no longer happen.

2) Invisible units: On the Desert, Arctic and Middle East tilesets, there were missing units. These were either civilian or friendly AI troop units where the sprites hadn't been rendered out yet. The updated sprites will be coming in V17, but I've added some placeholders there now so at least it's obvious what unit is meant to be what. There should be a lot more variation in the civilians by V17 though.

3) Middle East maps: The Middle East maps weren't done when we released V16, but they were still loading up. Therefore people would occasionally get unfinished maps, or maps where they couldn't get off the Chinook. I've put together a (basic) map for the Middle East now, so you can at least have a taster of how the tileset might look when the game is released. It will also prevent you getting completely flat and open / broken maps for the tileset (arguably more important).

If you can get the Desura client working (many have problems) then it's just a 50mb update.

Thanks Chris.

Hmm, may have to break out my patch maker when I get home .. Desura is blocked @work.. imagine that, they want us to work rather then play (:

You have made my sniper squad very happy. They were getting annoyed with me as I was always paranoid they were going to shoot an invisible civilian.

Thank you for such quick fixes to the game.

I get a "You need to purchase this release to download V16.1.rar " for that option but v16 is available. Desura itself is a dead loss as usual, with no updates showing.

Update isn't out yet. That's why.

Chris will update the thread when it is (also, us forumites who don't have problems with Desura tend to start posting "updating!" about then).

the odd thing is, that the 16.1 option was there as soon as I heard about 16. was it that obvious a hotfix would be needed?

Probably best to delete it and redownload the whole thing tomorrow (when v16.1 will probably be out). It'll be a big update size-wise from the KS build anyway.

Try force updating Desura (in the start menu options) if you've not used it in a while.

Gawd...still not updated? I keep going back to playing XCOM EU, but then I start feeling like it needs a realism patch - so come back here, and I get dissappointed again...and still. Desura sucks craps.
