Hated

Here's what changed since b143:

Added
  • Gfx tex command calls UnloadUnusedAssets
  • Streaming texture budget is set based on VRAM size
  • Anisotropic filtering is disabled if 3 GB or less of VRAM
  • Biome feral night born zombies will be old and die at dawn
  • Zombie super rage
  • Journal entries on weapon and armor stats (work in progress)



Changed
  • Harvesting farm plots was a bit too easy.
  • Wetness buff displays a percentage.
  • DrinkJarPureMineralWater and drinkJarRedTea improved description
  • Reduced file size of the 3 loading screen images by 75% saving a couple of Meg of memory without compromising the quality
  • Rescaled durability of items. Unless modified by perks the durability number now means number of uses until broken. Fast, low damage weapons have higher durability to account for needing more swings to achieve similar results as a slow weapon. Many items will need to be repaired if you continue an existing game.
  • You can use a blood draw kit while the death debuff is up, rebalanced BDK and updated display
  • PerkPhysician has a bonus for creating blood bags
  • Player crafted farm plots can be dug up and relocated
  • PerkLuckyLooter adds 10-50 to loot gamestage
  • Adjusted torque and friction of ground vehicles
  • Dye will scrap to paint
  • Helmet lights were too bright
  • Optimized out about 80K verts and 90K tris from pyramid_05
  • Items crafted by players can now have random stats. No random stats on primitive/stone items. Weapon and similar perks add 1 crafting quality per level so you can eventually craft QL 6 items.
  • Updated PREGEN01-03
  • Removed old script from wall torch
  • Steel knuckles are useful for gutting animals
  • Reduced heat map from torches and candles
  • Old zombies won't die if they have a target
  • Increased nightmare move speed to faster than a player
  • Added light sources to burning shaft mod prefabs.
